Second year in a row that we stayed in this unit. Reason for return is simple. It's the best. Hope to be able to return again.

We had a great time staying at this condo, it's huge and has everything you need for a great stay. Amazing views, massive rooms, well stocked kitchen and plenty of snorkelling gear, tennis racquets and things for the beach mean there's no need to pack anything. We'd definitely love to stay again.

The condo was well equipped for a comfortable stay. The veranda provided beautiful ocean views up and down the shoreline. We saw whales breaching on more than one occasion while relaxing there. The kitchen cupboards were well stocked, plus having a wide array of beach accessories in the hall closet. There are 3 public barbeques available for use, along with 3 community swim pools each having a hot tub area. The ocean view pool was a favorite, and an adult only pool that was open until 10 pm that was great for a relaxing evening swim. I wouldn't hesitate to rent the same place on our next visit to the Big Island.

We have stayed in the Kanaloa complex a half dozen times and have enjoyed them all. This location is ideal for those who want to be right on the ocean breakers but away from the craziness of Kailua downtown. This condo was very well stocked with whatever we needed and was comfortable for 4 travelers; the full kitchen saved a bunch of money on meals. Being upstairs meant that there was no noise from feet above. We made use of the pools, spas and tennis courts and even swam at the adjacent cove beach although it is a tricky entry/exit. Only down side to our stay was having to vacate for one morning for pest control spraying. Aloha Condos was very easy and pleasant to work with. We would come back.

This trip was my 7th stay at Kanaloa at Kona, but my first in unit 1803. It is a fantastic Condo. It had everything that we needed. The location on the water is perfect, we were greeted every morning with a "whale show". We also saw dolphins on several occasions. The owner was easy to work with, and the onsite contact was very attentive to our needs. The resort is immaculately maintained and beautiful. The resort staff is very friendly and helpful. I also like the location which is a little south of downtown Kona, about a 15 min drive, which makes it much quieter and less touristy. The resort also borders the Kona Country club which is a very nice golf course, that was unfortunately closed for renovation right now (re-opens in the Summer of 2014). The other world class golf courses (Mauna Kea and Mauna Lani) are about an hour drive away. I go to the island to relax, watch whales and play golf and I always bring along a couple of friends, they all return home raving about the resort and wanting to come back. If I had one tiny little nitpick, it was the TV in the master bedroom, it was small and low def, but the local contact told me they were upgrading it. Unit also had a brand new refrigerator. The owner seems to be adding upgrades all of the time. Overall this is an amazing place and I will definitely be back in Feb of 2016.

We were really impressed with this condo. While it was furnished with upscale furniture it was also very comfortable and family friendly. We had the master bedroom and I couldn't believe how comfortable the bed was. I had a little trouble applying my makeup in the bathroom until I saw the large vanity area with a vanity mirror to boot on the other side. It was also really nice to have a full-size washer and dryer in a separate laundry room and not those stackable kind in a closet. The view from the lanai is spectacular. One afternoon whales were breaching right in front of us and sipping a mai tai while watching the sunset doesn't get any better.

My daughter and I spent 2 fabulous weeks in Unit 1803. This is one of the best units in Kanaloa. I have visited there and stayed at Kanaloa many times. The master bedroom is updated and very well appointed. The furnishings are top notch and it is stocked with most anything you need. The unit was very clean and we enoyed it very much. I would highly recommend this unit.

If you love the sound of waves, and want a Great Oceanfront View, this is the place for you! It has 3 great bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a very Well Equipped Kitchen, and Very comfortable Living and Dinning Room, All with Great views of the ocean. But Best of all is you will spend almost all of your time out on the Lani, watching Dolphins, boats, kayaks and swimmers pass by. When you do leave to go snorkeling you are about 5 minutes by car from turtle beach and 10 minutes from White Sands Beach. we went to Two Step Beach 2 times and loved it, it is about a 15 to 20 minute drive. There were 2 couples in our party and we all Loved this condo and will definitely rent it again. It is a great location, right across the lagoon from the Sheraton where you can watch Manta Rays at night free from there deck, or book a Manta Ray Night Snorkel. You need to book these night snorkels in advance, they fill up fast, or you can watch them from your Lani with the binoculars they have at your well equipped condo. We took day trips to Waikoloa to check out the beaches and several upscale Hotels like the Hilton. We all agreed that we were much happier with our great condo because of all the room we had and also the beautiful grounds at Kanaloa at Kona. it has nice tennis courts and 3 swimming pools. I only used the one the was Oceanfront and it was beautiful. We cooked breakfast everyday and dinners about 9 nights out of our 14 nights there. There were spices, sugar and salt, and even olive oil there for us to use. we bought fresh fruit and supplies from the grocery store that was just up the hill about 3 to five minutes by car. This is a great place to feel at home on your vacation and We will rent it again hopefully next year. The Snorkeling, shopping and dinners out were great! We loved Hugos on the Rocks and had Mia Tia's and dinner there 3 times to watch the sunset. We also had dinner at Pancho & Lefty's Mexican Cantina, very good food.

Our stay at kanaloa condo 1803 was wonderful! The condo was comfortable and well equipped with several new appliances, ie toaster, blender, coffee maker...The view is absolutely amazing, the beds were comfortable, the living and dining area well suited for our group of 5. The condo itself is just far enough off of the beaten path, south of Kona, yet convenient to farmers market, small town shopping, live theater, restaurants and a manta ray night swim among other attractions! The grounds of the condo complex are well kept with many beautiful flowers and busy helpful staff. This condo has our recommendations! Thank you Elaine

My wife and I stayed in Kanaloa Condo 1803, while our sons and their families stayed in nearby units. 1803 is certainly one of the nicer units in the complex. We are prairie people so we found the waves crashing so near a little tiring, but our family found it soothing. What can you say! The unit is spacious, clean, well kept and comfy. The the grounds and the amenities:tennis courts, Bbq's and swimming pools are well maintained.

The location and the acomodations are fantastic. I liked the location right at the shore and I liked the well stocked cupboards including snorkeling gear. Unfortunately, two smoke detectors sent off a false alarm within a short period of time with each other...

We loved this condo and the spacious feel of it, especially the large master bedroom and bath. Very clean. It was nice to have it already stocked with hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, lots of bath towels, beach towels, snorkel gear, coolers, etc. We loved the pool by the ocean! Ideal location of the condo - was close to Kona and the airport.

The condo is right on the ocean with a very private lanai. The owner has an entire closet filled with beach chairs, boogie boards and other items that made our trips to the beach very enjoyable. The condo is clean and again the owner has provided tons of clean towels and beach towels for your use. The master bathroom is huge and the shower is great! Take advantage of the information left in the condo regarding places to go and things to do. It's a good idea to call restaurants or shops first to make sure they are still in business. We opted to pay for the a/C and are so happy we did! The M/B is in the rear and we had some days when the ocean breezes weren't strong enough to cool the condo down at night.

While the unit is not modern, any deficiencies are more than compensated for by the spectacular view and the sound of the waves. We stayed a month; it flew by. There is a long steep flight of stairs to this second floor unit so not for everyone. The resort is well located, the grounds, pools etc are immaculately kept. Professional, yet friendly dealings with owner, and local agent responsive. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

The location of this condo was great, both within the complex and on the Kona side of the island. It was minutes away from snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking and an outrigger canoe club that allowed visitors to go out with them. The price is a little less than some of the other condos because only the master bedroom and bath have been recently remodeled. The rest of the unit is in need of paint and a few minor repairs. It could also use a thorough cleaning. That being said we spent very little time indoors. We did enjoy the deck overlooking the ocean, choosing to eat all our meals outside.

We loved this condo. The view couldn't have been better, and the unit was spacious and comfortable. Our toaster broke and the property manager brought over a new one first thing the next morning - very responsive. If there is a downside, it is that it's not walking distance to Kona, but for many that would be a bonus. We'd use the same condo again in a heartbeat.

The condo was spacious and clean. It has all the convenience and comfort of home. A few minor things that were broken (one stove knob, closet sliding door) and a few things that can be improved such as some of lightning switches should be labeled (I have no ideas what some of them are for.) The front door key hole was in a very awkward position and hard to open especially at night. The Wifi password was labeled all capitals but it was actually all lower case. However this is an excellent condo, and you can not do wrong staying here. Peter an from Ellicott City Maryland

The view from this condo is magnificent - you are looking out into the vast ocean, and how soothing it is to listen to the sound of the crashing waves. Travelling with my husband, two sons (23 and 14), and my mother - we absolutely loved this condo - spacious, clean and well furnished with everything (including WiFi), we couldn't ask for more. The owner had several folders with tons of information, maps, attractions, restaurants, etc., which were helpful and useful.

Can't get much closer to the ocean! Watched dolphins and whales in the little time we spent in the condo. With the exception of a few very minor things, the condo is in nice shape. Very open. I ended up being noble and let my son and mother take the 2 big beds downstairs but ended up thinking I chose the best bedroom in the loft! I was able to see the waves crashing in and there is no better sound to fall asleep to! Pure heaven! There is no restaurant at the resort, despite the description but there are several nearby. Very nice area. Quiet but close to whatever you want to do. Closet is stocked with beach toys that we really enjoyed! Thanks!!

Condo was fabulous. Views spectacular and great whale and dolphin watching from lanai. Very comfortable with plenty of room - felt like we were in our own home. Great location and very quiet complex yet easy drive to all the action in Kona. Of the 3 pools our favorite was the one by the ocean. Complex is close to Kona Golf Course where we had great breakfasts and lunches at their restaurant. Best part was drinking Mai Tais and watching the sun set from the lanai. Can't imagine a better way to end the fun filled days. We will definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The condo was very clean and warm to stay. Loved the decor. They had books and maps of attractions which was very useful. Location was perfect and spent most of our time in the beachfront lanai. Theres a KTa superstore nearby to stock up on groceries and snorkeling activities was just a 5 min drive from the condo. We had a fun time barbecuing in the resort. We would definitely come back again :) We wish there was a can opener in the kitchen :) Everything else was great!!

Kanaloa in general is a great complex, and this condo is no exemption. Spacious living area that's well-appointed with a good sized lanai directly on the ocean where you can watch the sunsets. We have stayed in several of the condos at Kanaloa and this was on par if not a little nicer than the other ones. 2 bedrooms and loft easily sleeps up to 6 and has 2 full bathrooms. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to the Big Island.

One of the best locations on the Big Island. Can't beat the views of the ocean from this condo! Sitting on the lanai, hearing the surf and watching the sunset was really relaxing. The condo pretty much had everything we needed so we felt right at home during our stay. The place was nicely decorated and the complex grounds are well kept too. An extremely enjoyable place to stay!

The condo is well situated but poorly kept up. The sliders to the deck are all but unusable, the light fixtures and/or lights are not working in about 10% of the place, the blinds need repair, the ceiling fan in the master bedroom is noisy at certain desirable speeds and the refrigerator may need coolant topped off (it refused to work for the first 12 hours we were there - following a shutdown - I suspect due to a "vapor lock" in the coolant system that resolved itself in the cool of the night). The property manager was helpful in bringing ice to keep our food cool until the system kicked in. With appropriate repairs this would be a prime rental within Kanaloa - which is a prime complex. We have stayed in various condos here over the years. This was probably in the worst condition even though it is in a prime spot.

absolutely the most perfect location, grounds, beautiful. The condo was great, big and huge master ensuite. Downside the 3rd bedroom is a loft, so no privacy, and need to be quiet for sleeping teens? Also, furniture is worn and dirty, stove did not work well, kitchen needs updating.
