Condo unit was spotless, had everything we needed, and had comfortable beds. The only downside were the impossibly loud neighbors who got going at 6:15 every morning and needed to yell back and forth from their unit to the parking lot. Three days in a row. Pools were great, the ping pong table got lots of use, and the staff was friendly.

This unit is definitely worth coming back to, again, and again. The view is unbeatable and the condo is well supplied with all you could want for a great vacation experience. We enjoyed the close proximity to Keauhou Bay, with various boating activities and a convenient shopping center. It has the feel of being away from the busier Kailua area, but still just a short drive to enjoy all that area has to offer. It is simply our favorite place on our favorite Hawaiian Island.

What can you say but Mahalo for sharing this little piece of paradise. The condo was comfortable, clean and the little extras made our trip something special. The view is incredible from the condo. Each night we would walk out a short distance to the water and watch the sunset. We believed we were the luckiest people in the world to be able to stand on the edge of an island with nothing between us and the sunset but the water--and we had it all to ourselves. How romantic! We travel the islands and we are experienced condo dwellers. We love the kick back atmosphere of the condos at Kanaloa. We love buying fresh fish every night and throwing it on the grill. Nothing compares to Kona fish. Only disappointment was the restaurant on property was closed but we went next door to neighboring resort for PuPu's and drinks. Great time!

We stayed at Kanaloa at Kona two years ago when we visited the Big Island with our kids and grandkids and found the location to be excellent. This year it was just my husband and I so we looked for a smaller condo in the same complex, we found it in Condo #2904. The accommodations were great and the view from the lanai is unsurpassed. The entire complex is clean, well maintained and quiet. They have 3 beautiful pools; one is located right on the ocean, another is adults only which we got to appreciate this trip and a 3rd pool that is centrally located. Condo#2904 was clean, well equipped and as I said earlier it has one of the most amazing, unobstructed views of the ocean and rocky shoreline that I have experienced. If I had to come up with a negative it would probably be the upstairs neighbors, they must have worn shoes made of cement because there were a couple days we were woken up by their footsteps. Other than that one tiny issue I could not come up with any other negatives about this place. I plan on returning to Kona again (I cannot get enough of the night Manta Ray dives) and I will definitely try and reserve the same condo.

The only negative was that we had people upstairs (family with little children) and we could hear their every step above us throughout the day which was a bit disturbing.

5 minutes from good restaurants and shopping. 10 minutes from rugged lava fields or lush rain forest. 20 minutes from the airport. 30 minutes from the best beaches on the island. 60 minutes away from both the northernmost point of the island and southernmost point of the us. This is a very good value considering the location and amenities and privacy it provides. It was our first time renting privately and doubt we will ever go back to the hotels. The unit is comfortable and the owners provided all the basics and more - everything we needed to stay for a week. The only thing we felt was that with a minor make over of the bathrooms and the cupboards this space would be perfect. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the unit as well.

Quiet, private setting with a fabulous view of the ocean from the front lanai (we spent most of our time sitting out there in the mornings & evenings). Loved listening to the ocean all night with the breeze blowing through the screen doors. They have a wonderfully equipped kitchen - we cooked most all of our breakfasts & dinners ourselves. Even used the bbq grill just around the corner - very convenient (even when cooking after dark). They have beach chairs, mats and extra beach towels. So nice to also have a washer/dryer to dry out our suits & towels and to do our laundry before we left for our next leg of the trip.

Before booking this condo I spent much time on the internet researching the lodgings, area, etc. as one might expect. We booked with Kanaloa at Kona Condo 2904 because the reviews were very good and it was in a good area. When we showed up (early and weary from our other travels) we were absolutely shocked at how amazingly wonderful this place was! Every room was exceptional - tastefully decorated and clean with modern appliances. Every room contained anything one might need, as if it was our own home. This was just the inside - as we walked up the stairs and into the living area the first view was of the ocean splashing on the rocks below our balcony!!! We had no idea the view was going to be so spectacular, but when we booked, we didn't worry about that aspect knowing we were out exploring and doing activities all day every day. We instantly felt somewhat sad and decided to change our plans on a day just to be able to stay in and enjoy the condo. I honestly can say there is nothing negative to say...quiet neighbours, shops and amenities close by, helpful staff, beautiful all around!!

We just got back from spending a week here and enjoyed every minute. The condo was more than well stocked with anything you could need. We especially appreciated the full size washer and dryer for those loads of bulky beach towels. (Which were provided by the owner) The kitchen was stocked with a variety of spices and condiments. Also provided were a large coffee maker, rice cooker, coffee grinder and more. If I had to rack my brain for a negative there is very little space to store your food besides the refrigerator and freezer. But I would much rather not have to buy the basic spices/condiments and have rice cookers etc than have a place to put away a few groceries. The condo complex is beautifully landscaped filled with fragrant tropical flowers. It was a joy to come "home" every day. The view from the lanai was just as beautiful as the pictures. We hope to stay here again when we return to the Big Island. A special mahalo to Chuck for quick email responses and his gracious handling of our special request. His kidness was very appreciated.

Aloha Condo 2904 review and askew
Reviewed by Hawai'i-bound
This unit was a great oceanfront unit with about a 60 degree view of the ocean from the lanai. We could see spinner dolphins, kayakers, outriggers, fishing boats, and manta ray diving boats form the lanai. At this time of year we could not see the sun "set into the water" from the lanai, but it was visible with a short walk. Keauhou, where Kanaloa at Kona is located, is very convenient to West Hawai'i (and Kailua-Kona) without being in the middle of Kailua and its touristy activity. We have stayed at this condo complex on numerous occasions. The facilities and grounds are generally well-kept. On this visit the pools were not crowded, at any time. We were disappointed that the restaurant was not functioning in some fashion (economy?) and access to its open-area seating and the grassy area beyond it were denied. The unit, itself, was clean and well-furnished with up-to-date electronics (two LCD TVs with Dvdvcr players, cable, and wireleless internet) and fairly well-supplied kitchen and BBQ utensils. (Could have used a coffee grinder for Kona Coffee.) The fan in the bedroom was sufficient to keep us cool at night, but aC would have helped. The fan in the living room could have moved the air a little better. Ventilation, on the whole was good, but could have been improved with a screen door at the first floor entry to this second story unit. Downsides were the outside lighting (entry porch light was not functioning making it difficult to find the key and insert into door handle and the lanai could have used additional lighting from the outdoor fan housing allowing dinner to be eaten after sunset, which comes earlier than the mainland during summer) and placement of palm trees that limit view from the lanai. Overall it was a very pleasant stay. Convenient to wherever we wanted to be and whatever we wanted to do during our stay.

Condo 2904 is very nice overall and is recommended. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bed is very comfortable. The view is very good and close to the ocean. There are a few minor issues that stop me from giving the condo a 5: the bathrooms are servicable but they definitely need a remodel (one bathroom is partially redone), the foam pillows were comfy for foam but there were no feather pillows which we prefer, the walls are pretty thin, but that is likely the case for most condos, and the wireless router was completely unsecured with no encryption. The biggest issue is that the TV set up is not great - there is a small flat screen in the main room (it is very small) and the DVD and VCR set up is a nigthmare (2 separate units, with the DVD routed through the VCR). I am really good at figuring these setups out but I could get sound or picture, but not both. The bedroom has a medium sized tube with a DVD/VCR combo which is a lot easier to use. These are relatively minor issues with the TV being the biggest if you were to stay several weeks.

I'm not surprised to learn that Aloha Condos would like a review of our stay in Kona. Like everything else, their follow-up is flawless. We arrived late on Saturday night and were greeted by the gate guard. She escorted us to the unit, waited to make sure we had proper entry, and then left with a smile. Needless to say, we were in bed within the hour. Upon awakening, we rushed to the lanai to take in the magnificent view in the early morning sunlight. We were just in time to see a humpbacked whale do a complete jump out of the water, and come crashing down again. So spectacular it's hard to even describe. But, that was just the first hour. Everything just got better and better after that. We thoroughly enjoyed the condo, the surroundings, and the island. We especially liked Lulu's downtown. Great Mai Tai's, great Poke, and really fair prices. Found the speed limits to be somewhat confining, especially on the open road, but that's because I'm used to 55 mph on city streets here in the desert. All in all, a great place to vacation. Quiet, great view, close to everything, and very reasonable prices. Thanks Aloha for a memorable vacation experience. Oh yes, Bruce is the best... any problems, he'll handle it immediately... Jamison's is pricy. King Kam's Luau is the best. and the open air market on Ahi'i Street is well worth stopping for (better than the one downtown on the water)... The concierge saved us about $500 in fees for the activities we chose to do... Thanks Shawn. Snorkeling, Horseback riding in Waip'io Valley, sunset cruise on the catamaran, the luau, the volcano, and of course, the Black Pearl engagement ring we found in Hilo... yep, it was a great two weeks.

The master bed was the most comfy bed I haver ever slept on! The location is great and quiet with restaurants, a grocery store and take-out just a couple of minutes away. There was some good info at the condo regarding the Big Island and things to do. We loved taking a helicopter ride to see the volcano and couldn't pass up swimming with the wild Dolphins. All in all we enjoyed not only Hawaii, but also felt very fortunate to have found such a nice condo. We are looking forward to returning to this condo again and plan on staying longer.

We enjoyed a tranquil, quiet week with beautiful views while living in an immaculate, spacious, comfortable townhouse located a few milres south of Kailua, Kona. We look forward to a repeat experience in the near future.
