Perfect Stay in Paradise!

This condo recently changed ownership. It was highly regarded when owned by the former couple, and the new owner has not skipped a beat. He is responsive, kind, and very helpful. We were due to leave the day that Tropical Storm Iselle was to make landfall. Our flight was canceled and we called to extend our stay. Mr Shook arranged for our extra day of stay and also had backup plans for another place to stay if our trip was further extended by plane issues. This particular unit is beautiful, very clean, and has all the extras that you'd want to enhance your trip. The view is incredible, overlooking a small bay. The sound of the crashing waves is music to our souls. The location of the complex is within walking distance of the piers where some great boat outings launch from. The employees on site were extremely helpful and kind. George, especially, was always someone we hoped to see at the entrance. This is my husband's and my third trip to the Big Island. This was, by far, our favorite place to stay. We will be strongly recommending Kanaloa at Kona, and specifically unit 3601. Following are some things you won't need to bring or purchase thanks to a well stocked home: High efficiency washing machine soap, boogie boards, any cooking or eating utensil you could possibly need, kitchen staples, and a cooler. There are games, puzzles, and movies to keep people occupied (especially parents while teen girls are primping--and teen girls while parents are sleeping!) The ceiling fans were quiet and very effective. I highly recommend the air conditioning in the summer (although we would personally get it no matter what time of year it was). I believe that if you're looking at condos then you are looking for a quieter and homier experience. You will not find a condo that fits the bill more than this one. Mahalo Mr. Shook and Kanaloa at Kona for making us feel like ohana!!

This was our 6th time at Kanaloa over the past 7 yrs and all but once on the ocean. Unit 3601 is our favorite so far. The lanai faces a small bay that often had great wave action with lots of surfers to watch.There were snorkelers when the bay was quiet. The approach to the entry is very private and at ground level. Very nice landscaping. We like the floor plan of the --01 units. This unit was very clean,attractive,well equipped with updated kitchen.When we came in there was a basket of goodies waiting for us, a nice touch. We opted for a/C but could have done without. The unit building is immediately to the left of the property's entry gate and has dedicated covered parking as well as some open spots for visitors Everything worked,there is wi-fi and snorkel, beach towels, umbrella,etc available. Kanaloa property has 3 sets of pools,hot tubs,barbeques,changing rooms as well as lighted tennis courts and is over all quite attractive. It's close to markets,dining and golf. We had a good 3 weeks

I loved the video tour because the condo was exactly the way you saw it. There was great communication and ease in going into the property. The home was warm and comfy with a view of a small bay. All the amenities were excellent and everything worked. I liked the location and view the best. The only thing is with 2 adults,not married, we needed a double bed in the other room in lieu of two twins. However, for a family or people who don't mind twin beds, this unit is ideal

Manager Response

We're happy that you enjoyed your stay in our condo while visiting Hawaii. However, we regret that you were dissatisfied with the twin bed setup. Under "Features and Amenities" our website offers the option of having either twin beds or a king-size bed in the guest bedroom. Even if you had neglected to make your wishes know in advance, our local contact here in Kona would have been more than happy to convert the twins to a king had he been notified. When you plan your next visit you may indicate your choice of bed configuration in the guest bedroom on the reservation and have it ready and waiting for you upon your arrival.

loved, love, loved our week staying at this condo. we've traveled to kailua-kona several times and i'd like to start by saying the KTA grocery store up the hill has improved so much over the past couple years. you can get all sorts of local produce (much of it organic) and their prices are comparable; for the big island, at least. costco also has some great local stuff. that being said -- the kitchen in this unit was awesome! the appliances themselves all worked great (that blender was crazy!), but more so the way it was furnished was the nicest part. there were herbs and seasonings and extra paper towels and jars of various condiments were actually left in the fridge! they supplied cleaning products and rags and dish, dishwasher and laundry detergent. there was every gadget imaginable (took us a week to figure out what the pineapple corer was)! we weren't left needing a thing. it's very rare to visit a condo that supplies all those extras. the comforts of home continued throughout the unit. it was very clean, and while it didn't feel brand new, it was super cozy. plenty of space for 3 adults and a toddling 1-year-old. i had inquired about a crib before our trip for the baby and some rental companies were referred to me. those places are ridiculously expensive so i decided to just have the babe sleep with me. the owners took it upon themselves to purchase a play yard for the unit, and charged us a very fair rate for it. the extras continued all the way out to the lanai with a gorgeous view, a mini fridge for all the drinks and a closet stuffed full of beach chairs, pool toys, boogie boards and even snorkel gear. this trip was one of the most relaxing so far (as relaxing as possible with a toddler under foot). the pool areas are nice, the water was a little cold, but refreshing at times. the grounds were very serene all around. i would definitely recommend this condo to a friend traveling to hawaii. we hardly left, and can't wait to get back!

No Help from Aloha Condos

Reviewed by MGBelfi

Date 04/01/2009

Aloha Condos did nothing to make us feel welcomed. Our checkin instructions were not sent to us until we emailed and called several times before arriving. Once we got there we did not receive a welcome package, discribing the facilities, and no one at the front deck would help us because you are not a resort guest. "You're with Alohacondos, it's like a curse, no one will even talk to you. They wouldn't even let us have a map of the resort. When we called aloha condos about the information, we were told to look for a packet on the livingroom coffee table. I told them there was nothing on the table they said it should have been placed there but never provided the information. I would never rent from Aloha condos again. The owners were nice, they came and turned on the air conditioner (which costs an extra $15.00 a day) if they hadn't done that Aloha Condo Service would have charged us an additional $25. to unlock the thermostat. . Being right on the ocean was lovely. The pool and bar were enjoyable. The grounds were very nice. The apartment was adequate. Having the second bedroom bathroom in the hallway was inconvenient and lacked privacy. Dealing with Aloha Condos was very disheartening and total not in the Hawaiian spirit. DON"T GO ALOHA CONDOS

Manager Response

It's unfortunate that our guest didn't receive the information sent to them or contact us before their arrival saying that they didn't know how to check-in to the condo.

The check-in instructions were emailed 30 days prior to arrival, with a follow up reminder one week before arrival. Included in these instructions were specific details with directions to the resort, how to register with the security guard at the resort entry, and how to find and access this beautiful, privately-owned condo. Gaining access doesn't require using the Outrigger front desk as they only manage units in their rental pool.

The information guide was inadvertently placed on a shelf in the kitchen with other helpful guide books. These include appliance directions and menus from recommended restaurants and cookbooks. It is boldly labeled "Kanaloa Info".

Aloha Condos does not charge the guests for necessary services, including unlocking a thermostat. Guests can, and do, call and receive prompt and courteous personal attention for any concern they may have.

The floor plan is clearly shown on the website. Guests often comment on how they enjoy the spacious size (1500+ sq ft) of this unit, including the conveniences offered by the layout, not to mention its beautiful location on the little bay.

This review is quite unique and a surprise to us. The owner met the tenants when he came to turn on the A/C control and once again, as they were leaving. Both of these encounters were very cordial and complimentary in nature, with no complaints expressed.

We feel very fortunate to have received more 900 FlipKey reviews and thousands of verbal complements on how Aloha Condos truly conveys to our guests the Aloha Spirit that makes Hawaii a wonderful place to be.
