About Us

In business on beautiful Kauai for 40 years, Bali Hai Realty, Inc. provides a strong sense of care and connection when it comes to Kauai real estate and Kauai vacation rentals. Employing a seasoned staff of local residents, Bali Hai Realty has a long track record of bringing excellent teamwork and a sense of ohana (family) to their clientele. President and founder, John Ferry says, “I wake up in the morning thinking about my ‘family’ of employees and the sense of family they bring to our customers. I have 25 good people on staff who’ve been here a long time. We extend that sense of family to our customers … they feel connected to us.” John Ferry opened Bali Hai Realty in 1978. In 2000, Bali Hai joined the internationally respected Coldwell Banker family as an independently owned franchise to provide even better services to their clientele, but decided to go their separate ways in 2019.

Real Estate Services

Considered one of Kauai’s leading realty service companies, Bali Hai Realty specializes in providing exceptional knowledge of the property market combined with a finely tuned sensitivity to the needs of buyers and sellers. The staff is experienced in a wide variety of transactions ranging from choice beachfront property or luxury homes to agricultural parcels, golf course lots and residences, and even that affordable “slice of paradise.” Catering to clients in Hawaii, Japan, the U.S. Mainland and Europe, Bali Hai also has a depth of experience in commercial and residential developments. Depending upon customer needs, the Bali Hai Realty team jumps in with a full range of services and networks to assist in the process of buying, selling or renting. Bali Hai’s staff also has extensive resources of experts and consultants on Kauai to assist customers with planning, construction, design and décor.

The Vacation Rental Team

Vacation Rental Services

Bali Hai Vacation Rentals provides a wide array of homes, cottages, villas and resort condominiums on Kauai’s spectacular north shore and throughout the Garden Island. Locating the perfect vacation rental is Bali Hai’s specialty whether at Aliomanu, Anini Beach, Kilauea, Princeville, Hanalei or Haena. Rentals are situated on the beach, at full service resorts, in charming local neighborhoods, or in lush seclusion. The Bali Hai vacation rental staff also offers concierge services to arrange for needs such as on-island activities, private chef services, massages, private yoga sessions, surf lessons or personal grocery shopping.


Bali Hai Realty’s level of service has produced notable merit in the state of Hawaii and within the real estate industry. Hawaii Business Magazine recognized Bali Hai for producing the highest residential sale in Hawaii, and has recognized three Bali Hai employees among the top 100 real estate agents statewide.  Coldwell Banker has awarded Bali Hai “Premier Office” distinction for the last nine years, an achievement reached by only 3% of all Coldwell Banker franchisees (now ex-franchisee). Coldwell Banker has also bestowed the President’s Award of Honor and the Golden Eagle Award to Bali Hai.  According to Hawaii Information Services, Bali Hai Realty is the all-time leading residential and vacant land real estate company on Kauai.  Accomplishments of this magnitude demonstrate Bali Hai’s level of teamwork between management, sales associates and staff.

Community Involvement

There is a long history of community involvement at Bali Hai Realty. Donations, hands-on help and volunteerism are given to a variety of non-profit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Kilauea Wildlife Refuge , Salvation Army, Wilcox Hospital, and the YMCA.  John Ferry’s philosophy, “If you don’t give back, you don’t get to keep it,” underlines the years of dedication to community causes. “We love Kauai and the people who live here,” Ferry says. “The island has been very good to us. We’re just trying to give back.”

    I Love the Ohanna feel of this business establishment. Kauai has always been close to my heart. My wife and I has considered this to be the best place to raise our kids. Other than housing that you can provide is there room for more real estate agents in your office.

    I would like to commend the property rental managers on the fine job they do for this company. I am an owner of one of your rental properties and I have been so impressed by the way the team responds to every situation that comes up with our guests. I live in California and would be in trouble without them. Please let them know how much their hard work is appreciated Sincerely Christine Davis
