3-Bedroom 2-Bath Oceanfront Condo - Sleeps 6 [?]
Unit 1804 is Brilliant!!!
Our stay in 1804 was "Brilliant" - The unit is wonderful with spectacular views and a beautifully decorated interior. The furnishings were not only pleasing to the eye, but comfortable as well as functional. 1804 is situated in the Kanaloa complex in such a way that once we entered the unit it felt like we were the only unit in the condo complex and with views of the ocean and sunsets that defy description. The layout of the unit provides comfort and privacy for up to six people. The 3 ring binder provided all necessary information about the unit and helpful recommendations about shopping, dining, and touring. Also the various Tour guidebooks that were available in the unit were helpful. We have been coming to the Big Island for about 20 years and have stayed at Kanaloa at Kona at least 7 times - This was by far our best experience and none of the others were bad. When we return to the Big Island we will definitely try to stay in unit 1804. Kathy George's communications with us before our visit and helpful manner made us feel comfortable and confident that our experience would be first class, and it was.
Paradise in Kona
This was a wonderful experience for our family. Clean facility and very well kept. This is a great location in Kona.
We have stayed in Kathy's condo 1804 four times now and it's a better experience every time! Impeccablly clean, everything always works and the responsiveness and class of the owner, Kathy, is beyond description. I can say this with conviction since I've been in the real estate business 22 years. The condo itself is located in the Kanaloa property in the Keahou area, just 5 miles south of town in Kailua Kona. Right on the rocks overlooking the blue Pacific with just enough breaking waves for incredible peace. We've visited all the islands of Hawaii and I can honestly say Kanaloa at Kona is the nicest condo property and Kathy's 1804 is the best of the bunch. We'll be back again!
Wish we were still there!
This gem of a condo is located in a beautifully maintained, peaceful resort. A great home base for exploring the Kona side of the Big Island. We had plenty of space, and found the condo to be clean, comfortable and very well maintained. It was a pleasure to cook our own meals in the clean and well equipped kitchen. The in-suite washer and dryer were fantastic, and much appreciated after some long hiking days in Volcano National Park! The views from the lanai were incredible, and we were treated to a show by spinner dolphins every evening around 5:00 p.m. We never tired of watching the waves crash against the shore. A short walk to the nearby blowhole also proved very entertaining! We would highly recommend this spot to anyone. Kathy was wonderful to deal with; always prompt and professional. Mahalo!
Superb condo with one in a million view of the Pacific
This was our third visit to Unit 1804 It is a perfectly located spot in a quiet yet well serviced area of the Big Island close to Keahou Bay. The owner and manager have always responded quickly to any questions. The beds are comfortable, the condo is very clean clean and completely updated. We wouldn't hesitate to return. We don't look forward to the day when the run of stairs up to the unit prove too challenging.
Lulled to sleep at night by the sound of the waves. Stunning view from the Lanai - perfect for daily Whale watching. Beautiful, well cared for resort. Condo is exactly as the pictures online display. All supplies we could need especially for beach days - umbrella, lawn chairs, coolers. This was our first visit to Hawaii and the home away from home comfort of this condo along with our generous host's hospitality (Kathy) - a return trip is already in the works !
Luxurious condo with stunning views
An ultimate place to celebrate a significant birthday (or any occasion). Waking to sun, birds and the beauty and awesome power of the waves that are only 20' feet away, with a cup of 100% Kona coffee and fresh papaya is an amazing way to start a day. The condo is beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. Our favorites were the lanai, the beautiful bathrooms and comfortable beds. We appreciate being able to use the provided beach chairs, towels and boogie boards for our visits to Kua Bay. A special memory is watching a large group of Spinner Dolphins frolicking from our lanai. We also were entertained by the stand up paddlers, outrigger canoes and kayaks daily. But, truly nothing compares to the incredible sunsets! Wow!!! We watched daily from the lanai and have many photos to preserve our memories. We highly recommend the zodiac snorkel trips with Sea Quest (a short walk from the condo), visiting Volcanoes National Park and the Black Sand Beach, paddling with Keauhou Canoe Club (donation), Kua Bay for boogie boarding and Kahalu'u for wonderful snorkeling (.5 miles from condo). But, don't forget to plan time just enjoying the view from the lanai. This condo is in a beautiful setting and definitely felt secure. We highly recommend renting it. It's clean, well maintained and beautifully appointed. We look forward to our next trip. Mahalo!
Gorgeous view! Great location!
We loved our stay. The condo was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The location is excellent - right on the water with stunning views. The owner kindly allows you to use beach accessories such as towels, chairs, boogie boards and coolers. It made for some great days at the beach. The complex offers 3 pools/hot tubs and 2 very nice tennis courts. The location in Kona affords easy access to shopping and dining. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
We loved our time at Condo #1804. It was right on the rocky beach and we enjoyed wonderful waves and beautiful sunsets. Loved sitting on the Lanai and watching the boats go by. We even played cards out there. The condo has everything you will need for a great stay and is located close to a small shopping center that has a grocery store. Also, Kathy the owner, was very accomodating! You will not be disappointed!
13 days was wonderful, came for the ironman, great place to stay,no complaints whatsoever, condo was great, grounds beautiful,love kona, I'll be back thanks lulloffs
Relaxing in paradise
Booking communication was excellent, with timely emails. Payment transactions were smooth again with good communication. Clear instruction on how to find the property were included. The condo was wow - right by the sea, with the lanai opening onto the sea crashing against the rocks. The condo was comformable and was well equipped and an arrival pack of essentials was supplied. On site were 3 pools all well kept as were the grounds. A short drive to the supermarket which was very convenient. The location was quiet and we saw dolphins from the lanai. The concierge was available for advice on excursions and were knowledgeable. All in all a great vacation.
Unmatched view. Amazing experience.
Our group of four adults stayed in the condo for four nights in mid-July. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay for a month or more. The condo was beautiful, extremely comfortable, clean, and well maintained. The listing is entirely accurate. ... Kathy was responsive, professional, and easy to work with. ... Being right on the ocean, the view was spectacular, and we were blessed with more than one gorgeous sunset. The surf on the lava-rock shore lulled us to sleep every night. ... The kitchen was clean and well stocked. The goodie basket awaiting our arrival was a very nice touch. We were also really grateful to have the washer and dryer in the unit. We used it the last night of our stay before transferring to another island. ... I think we may have used the a/C once or twice during our stay, but most of the time the trade winds took good care of us. And it was great to have wifi in the unit. ... The master bath is over the top, especially the huge shower. Loved it! There was a note on the Jacuzzi that the jets weren't working, but this wasn't an issue for us since it really wasn't hot-tub weather (is it ever in Kona?). ... We spent a day on the North Kohala coast, zip-lining and hiking, and another day exploring the volcano and hiking the Kilauea Iki crater. Highly recommend both. Also drove up to the Mauna Kea visitor center for a bit of stargazing; the Milky Way was breathtaking. ... Bottom line, I would absolutely recommend this unit to friends and family, as long as they're not trying to book it for the dates I want.
Peace and serenity
Beware - once you enter, you may never want to leave. That's what happened to us. The lanai right on the water was so relaxing that we spent lots of time there. With the overhead fan and light, it could be enjoyed at any time of the day or night - we were treated to a full moon the first night. The resort property itself is beautiful, quiet and has 3 pools. We were looking for a stressless vacation and we got more than we could dream of! The condo was immaculate with a fully equipped kitchen. After loading up at Costco (on the way to the condo from the airport), there was no need to go out to eat. Remember to check out the blue binder on the table next to the sofa. It is full of info about the area with menus for nearby restaurants. The best part for us were the step-by-step instructions on how to use the DVD player (with surround sound, no less). Kathy, the owner, is very gracious and provides helpful info and suggestions. She responds to your e-mails quickly and tries to address any concerns immediately. We are contemplating a return visit soon!
Panorama Ocean view, sound of waves and relaxation or entertainm
We were lucky enough to stay for the month of February in 1804. Delightful, very well equipped and very relaxing with amazingly few people in the pools. Lanai time is wonderful with the occasional whale/dolphin show as well as boarders and boats. Traditional beaches(Hapuna, Mauna Kea) are an hour away and traffic has gotten worse over the years, but the drive is worth it. Grocery store within walking range and all Big Island attractions within driving range. It was a wonderful month.
This was our first time renting a condo, but we had very high expectations. This unit met and exceeded our expectations in every way! Absolutely beautifully decorated and appointed. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Incredibly well appointed, from beach towels to boogie boards, everything we needed was there. When the only suggestion for improvement I can think of is a third towel bar in the second bathroom, you know they thought of everything! Comfortably fit the five of us, and the huge bright kitchen was a major plus. This condo was hard to leave! Every member of our family fell in love with the place. The complex is very nice, beautifully landscaped. The staff that we interacted with were professional. The ocean pool is lovely. Units do not have Bbqs, but there is a great high-end shared gas grill just a few steps from the unit. I did wish that there were easier access to a beach where we could walk in the waves. The shoreline at the complex is extremely rocky, and the water itself is not easily accessed from the units. However, this unit is probably the very best in the complex for excellent view and ultimate privacy, with the sound of the waves being the only noise we heard. Kathy was very helpful in the planning our trip. Thank you! We'll definitely be back.
Our favorite place we have stayed in Hawaii!
Beautiful condo, beautiful views, great location, and nice complex with 3 pools, tennis courts, etc. We have been to Hawaii about 10 times over the years and this is the best condo we have ever stayed in. The view is priceless!
The ultimate vacation experience.
A perfect place and location for a totally relaxing vacation. The condo is beautiful and the location is spectacular...a place that one can return to and always enjoy.
Absolutely the best condo on the property!
We've stayed in various condos at Kanaloa since the late 80's and have never stayed in such a beatifully decorated, well maintained unit as yours, Kathy. The location was supurb with just enough surf to block out all extranious noise and make sleeping a dream. The location at the north end of the property was perfect for breezes to keep away any vog and cooling. The only thing missing was a quality restaurant like Edwards and hopefully soon someone will open one, at least for a good local breakfast. Being a real estate broker, it was so refreshing doing business with you, Kathy. You were always right to the point and did what you said you'd do - quite a rarity today! Hope to see you again with more members of the family soon. Best regards, Roger and Sharon Judkins Maryville, TN
A week in Paradise
The week went by too quickly!. We Have been to the Big island on numerous occasions and out of all of our stays this was by far the best. Having stayed in high end hotels, townhouse condos in Waikoloa, , luxury B&Bs; etc, this unit was a true gem given its location, fabulous setup, equipment, etc. The unit obviously has pride of ownership as evidenced by the updating, furnishings and condition. The owner was able to answer any questions prior to rental and did not overlook any details during the entire process. Our family had a choice of swimming pools from tropical to overlooking the ocean at the resort, and, we were even able to BBQ some fresh fish one night! The location of the condo is truly outstanding with the most incredible 180 degree ocean views. We look forward to returning here on our next trip to the Big Island! Mahalo Chris & Peggy
The Most amazing Experience!
This was our first trip to the Big Island and we just can't wait to go back! The condo was one of the highlights to our trip. It was absolutly amazing, beautiful, clean and more than we imagined! We can and will highly recommend this condo to everyone. Kathy was amazing and the gift basket was an amazing thoughtful touch. The best!
Relaxed family fun oceanside
This is the nicest condo we have stayed in at Kanaloa. It was very well suited for a family with 3 school age children but also grown up enough to host other adult families to dinner. All the amenities and supplies you could need from boogie boards, coolers etc. were all stocked and very close to a BBQ and the ocean-side swimming pool. The location is perfect - close to Kahalu'u beach for snorkeling, the shopping center for supplies and farmer's market, and Keahou Bay for catching the Trade Winds II trip. Best of it is so quiet and restful.
Dolphins, Whales, Outriggers, Kayaks and perfect sunsets
We had stayed at other units in the Kanaloa complex previously; really enjoyed the location of this complex, and knew that this particular unit had the best views of any available. We were not dissappointed upon our arrival with any aspect of the unit and the fact that the lanai view was dead on the ocean with perfect sunsets every evening made our month-long stay truly wonderful.
Fantastic home in great location and great condo resort
This ia fabulous condo. It is very spacious, well kept, nice furnishings. The views from the living room are fantastic, Lamai overlookks ocean which is only yards away! We enjoyed watching many sunsets from the Lania, having breakfast many mornings out there as well. Condo is supplied with almost anything you would need include coolers, beach chairs, spices... The location is great- you are not in the middle of the busy part of Kona, but a short drive away. The resort itself is also very nice. Very nice pools, tennis courts, grills. I would have this place tops of my list to stay when we go to Kona again. Kathy made it very easy to transact business - a big Mahalo! We have vistited all the Hawaiian Islands and keep returning to Kona for the diveristy and Kharma the Big Island offers.
This is an absolutely perfect place. The condo is stunning and the owner amazing. She was very careful that everything was in perfect working order. We were able to see beautiful sunsets every night from the lanai overlooking the ocean. We have rented a number of condos in different places including Hawaii, and this was the best so far
Fabulous Location on the Kona Coast
If you are searching for a luxury condo on the Kona Coast of Hawaii with a fabulous ocean view, then this is the condo for you. This second floor condo has sweeping views and sits only yards from the ocean. The location is excellent, and the resort is lovely. There is plenty of room in this condo for you and your family, and central air conditioning is available. The kitchen is well-stocked and appointed. A new front-loading washer and dryer are also in the condo which is very convenient. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to the Big Island.
Beautiful condo at Kanaloa
This condo has a lot of upgrades. Kanaloa has very nice condos to begin with, and this one is outstanding. Tile throughout, and marble tile in the master bathroom. Walk in double shower with a separate huge jacuzzi tub. Walk in closets. Huge flatscreen TV, big kitchen that looks like it was remodeled in the last few years. A good size lanai, beachfront or lava front. Can watch sunsets from the lanai. We have stayed in several of the condos at Kanaloa and is this is by far the nicest one. Sleeps up to 6 and has 2 full bathrooms. Kanaloa is the nicest condo to stay in Keauhou Kona.
This is an absolutely awesome place to stay. It is nice and roomy and it has been nicely remodeled. We felt absolutely at home. The kitchen is well equipped. The only thing missing was a muffin pan. And there are plenty of beach items...boogie boards, ice chests, beach towels, beach umbrellas, chairs, etc. The only negative thing I can say about the condo is the bed in the master bedroom. While the mattress was very comfortable, the box springs must be extremely old. The springs creaked every time we turned over in the bed. It was extremely noisy. I like to get up early and my husband likes to sleep in. I was unable to get out of bed without waking him every morning. We used ear plugs the rest of the week but it didn't completely drown the noise. Other than that, it is an unbelievable condo, with absolutely gorgeous views. The lanai was my favorite place every morning. And it is a wonderful place to watch the stunning sunsets over the ocean. We would definitely stay here again.
Second stay at this condo and is as good as the first...
This was our second stay at 1804 and we had a great time. We enjoyed the condo so much last summer we had to get back again this summer. We will stay at this unit for a long time. Everything is great: the view, the overall layout of the unit, the privacy, the ocean waves and sounds, and the ease of booking.
Relaxing getaway at condo 1804
Views were spectacular. Condo was very spacious and very clean. It was beautifully upgraded- hardwood and slate floors,granite countertops, spalike feel to the bathrooms. Decoratating was lovely- tropical without looking tacky. Nice to have the air conditioning (extra charge for this). Kitchen was well stocked. The three pools were nice, One disappointment- no workout room. There was lots to do on the island and we would definitely come back.
Exquisit accommodations led to a restful vacation
The condo was very roomy for our 3. We found ourselves on the veranda (staring at the ocean) anytime we were back from outings. Master bedroom & bath are amazing. We utilized the chairs and beach pads, the cooler for a picnic lunch on one snorkling day, watched all 3 Harry Potter DVDs in the entertainment cabinet, walked across the golf course+ to snorkle each morning. We traveled only with backpacks since the condo had W&D so washing kept our packs small. Kitchen was very up-to-date and clean. Next trip to the Big Island, we will be back.
Our stay was just about perfect!!! Working with Kathy, the owner, was so easy; she provided everything that we needed! She also had lots of tips for where to go, etc... I would recommend a/c, though, because of the afternoon Western exposure....the sun warmed the condo significantly in the afternoons; nights and mornings were very comfortable, with the windows open and fans blowing, but late afternoon got pretty warm! It was our choice, but next time we would get a/c. If we are able to return, this is definitely where we would stay!
Paradise in Paradise
We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary and totally enjoyed our stay in 1804. This condo is perfect for relaxing and listening to the waves crash against the lava rock. It has all the amenities you need and more. The condo has been totally renovated and is very modern and beautiful. The kitchen is a gourmet kitchen, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances. The master bath has a two shower head large shower and jacuzzi. The area is very quiet and peaceful.
Besides it getting a little warm as the trades where not cooperating we found the accomadations to be very nice....We had a great time
A Perfect Place to Stay
We rented 1804 for 10 days in October during "Ironman Week." The location was perfect, the views and sunsets were breathtaking and the condo had everything we needed. It was far enough away from downtown Kona to get away but close enough to be there in minutes. The unit was convenient to two great beaches where we snorkled and body surfed. It was also very convenient to a launch for incredible kayaking. The pool was convenient for a relaxing dip. We used the outside grill for cooking which was also great. If we ever return to the Big Island, we could not imagine staying anywhere else.
We stayed here Sept. 26-Oct 3...there were two couples (we were celebrating both husbands' 50th b-days) and a 22-year-old son. The condo is very well equipped, comfortably furnished, and spacious enough. Lots of extras (ice chests, chairs, beach towels) so we didn't have to spend extra $$ or time getting these things. While it is about 20 minutes to downtown Kona or other attractions to the north, we enjoyed the peaceful and well-manicured setting of the complex and the awesome views of the kayakers, boaters, and crashing waves off the lanai! We would definately stay in this condo again. Thank you! Note: the restaurant and bar at the condo complex are no longer open.
Condo 1804: perfect location, beautiful decorated, everything and more available: comfortable beds, air condition, internet access, coffee and Hawaiian waffle mix in welcome basket, plenty of spices, detergent, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc. , above all : boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, kids sand toys (we did not need them any more, but would have appreciated in earlier years). Easy to get to beautiful beaches. We missed nothing and that almost never happens. We will be back. Thanks
Great place for a family
My wife and I took my mom here for her 65th b-day and it was great. Very clean and well taken care of. We are definately going to tell our friends about this place.
Another fabulous stay
This was our second time to 1804. We can't imagine ever staying anywhere else. Kathy clearly takes pride in the home she is willing to share. It is beautifully decorated, there are thoughtful items left for our use and the view...well it just doesn't get any better. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
Awesome view, awesome accomodations. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. Comfy couch and big screen TV. Great to come home to at the end of a busy day, in fact, tough to leave sometimes. Just wanted to sit on the deck and listen to the ocean. Great sunsets!
This condo is more than comfortably furnished and decorated as an upscale home. You must enjoy the sound of the surf as it can be heard from every room. No need to bring a thing but your personal items-everything else is made available to you. The Kanaloa location is convenient to lots of fun activities including a safe snorkeling area for children. Enjoy!
Excellent for Whale Watching
This was our third stay and we seem to keep coming back to the same place. This is now our favorite island and favorite tip of the island. We loved it!!
Beautiful Oceanfront Condo
We were in Hawaii for my sister's wedding and stayed at this beautiful condo. We had never rented a vacation home before - had always stayed in hotels - but this was so great, we would definitely do it again. This unit is so close to the water, you can almost jump in from your lanai. The view is gorgeous! There is not a beach, as it is a rocky shoreline but if you are looking for a clean, spacious, nicely decorated and well maintained condo where you can relax, listen to the surf and enjoy spectacular ocean views, this is a wonderful choice. There is a golf course here, but we don't golf, so we didn't try out the course. The pool was nice for the days that we just wanted to lay in the sun for awhile. We did, of course, do alot of sightseeing and it was great to come back to a quiet, laid back, peaceful place and just chill. Paradise!!!
Terrific Vacation Condo
This condo is great! The unit itself is beautiful, very tastefully decorated and extremely well maintained. The ocean-front location within the property is very nice - away from the center of the project, so privacy is enhanced. As a friend said of this unit 3 years ago, if you were any closer to the water, you'd need a boat. We've stayed in several different Kanaloa units, and more than once in this condo. All have been very enjoyable; however, unit 1804 has been the best - by virtue of location, being ocean-front, and unit decor, furnishings, and maintenance. I keep saying I'll be very happy to just stay and relax at this condo for the vacation, but activities invariably draw us out. Kanaloa at Kona is a wonderful location in the Keauhou Resort area of the Kona Coast. It's only 15 minute drive to Kailua-Kona town; and less than 5 minutes to one of the best snorkeling beaches (Kahalu'u Beach Park)along the Kona coast. The location is also 5 minutes from the Fair Wind and Sea Paradise snorkeling boat operations. We've also stayed at the Waikoloa area that's about 20-25 miles north of Kailua Kona, but the recent growth of condos in that area has greatly increased the population density. And it's usually windy there - the local nickname is "Waikablowa." And, the Waikoloa location assures you a 30-45 minute drive to come to town - or to get anywhere. So, our recommendation, when asked, is to stay at Kanaloa at Kona in the Keauhou Resort area, in unit 1804 if it's available.
Lovely, comfortable condo
We stayed at this condo while on Hawaii for a few days. It is in a very good location, the oceanfront views are wonderful, and it is very well maintained and beautifully appointed. The only down side was the loft where our "fifth" person slept was a bit warm and stuffy. The owner is very responsive. I'd stay there again.
This condo was great! We were 2 couples, with room for more. Everything was exceptional, from the furniture to the fabulos master bathroom. It is right on the ocean, and best of all--------it has air-conditioning, because Hawaii can be very hot and humid. Nice gated community. Good pools, and even one for adults only, so there is no screaming kids to deal with. We have stayed in this condo community 2 others times, but stayed at different condos--this one is by far the nicest one. Every time we come to The Big Island we will stay in this community.
Wonderful Anniversary Week
Beautiful oceanfront view with very nice new décor. The kitchen is well equiped, and the condo is very spacious and family friendly.
Fantastic blue sky and ocean
Extreamly enjoed about the condo during 2 weeks staying with my wife. Alldays in the morning and sunset, watched ocean and sky with meal. Your condo gave us quiet and relax time without any concernings.
The views of the ocean are spectacular at this property. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the lanai and the ocean view from there. The condo had everything we needed to feel at home during our stay. Additionally, the bathrooms are very luxurious and the furnishings/decor are beautiful. I highly recommend this condo as it has everything that you would want for a Hawaiian vacation rental property!
This unit was decorated in such good taste and so clean. The beauty is that is is steps from the surf. The views and serenity were awe inspiring. Hearing the ocean each night was relaxing and special. The resort has three pools-so no crowds anywhere. We are hoping to return soon.
This is an outstanding condo. It appeared to have been recently ungraded. We stayed with friends and all agreed this was the best place we have stayed at Kanaloa At Kona. I am sure we will return.
Top of the Line
Absolutely a great unit. Top of the line furnishings and decor. Well stocked with just about anything you would need. An extremely enjoyable place to stay!!
Beautiful oceanfront dream condo
Absolutely beautiful oceanfront condo, so close to the breaking waves that you feel like you are on a cruise ship. Views are spectacular, condo is well appointed and beautifully decorated. Owner seems dedicated to making sure that every need is met.
Spectacular condo and view
What an incredibly well equipped, clean condo with a most spectacular view of the ocean. It has to be one of the best locations on the Big Island. Well worth the money! We have stayed elsewhere in Kona but this takes the cake! Comfortable beds, furniture,every mod con, beach stuff for the kids. Lovely quiet complex, good restaurant for breakfast, lunch, three pools. No letdown here! Hope we'll be back!
