relaxing in paradise
Theresa from Bellevue on 10/30/2013 said:
A relaxing, tranquil and beautiful place to stay. The condo location was perfect for viewing sunsets and enjoying breakfast on the lanai. Smartly decorated and clean.I look forward to staying here again.
HKM from Hilo on 01/27/2013 said:
sorry for this late reply...I would stay at the townhouse in a hearts beat...everything was wonderful...only wish that if you had a gas grill in the lanai instead of going to the pool area wound have been better. Maybe if there were some discount for locals and repeat guest would make it even better. Hope to rent the unit in the near future. Thank you.
Still lingering on our minds
lily from San Francisco on 08/11/2012 said:
We found the home immaculate and comfortable in every way. It is located conveniently to stores and there is easy access to the major highways that will take you all over the island. We loved it and would go back to be spoiled again.
Ardie and I thank you for your review. We are always happy to hear that our guests enjoyed their time in our townhouse in Kona.

This is a gorgeous condo and a beautiful veiw of the Kona sunsets from the patio. Beautiful granite kitchen and wonderful lush carpet. Love the pool and bbq area. Close to shopping. Definitely recommend this condo.
Wonderful Na Hale Keahou Condo
Endsley Family from Beautiful CDA, ID on 10/18/2010 said:
When we walked in the door, we felt welcome! The condo is very open, spacious and well-appointed. We loved it. Whomever designed the complex did an excellent job. We've been to Kona 7 or 8 times and this was by far our best lodging experience. We plan to be back and plan to stay in a-5 again. Thank you for sharing it with us!
Best kept secret!
Judie Gilbo from Seattle, WA on 07/21/2010 said:
My husband and I love to travel, but dislike large hotels in busy tourist areas. This condo was perfect for us. It was beautiful, new, spotless, with all the amenities, perched on a hill with an amazing view and great sunsets. We loved eating our meals at the outdoor patio table, swimming in the pool, and exercising in an uncrowded workout room. Best of all it was quiet, but easy to get to everything in a matter of minutes! We hated leaving and the next time we are in Hawaii, we definitely will return to the Na Hale O Keauhou a-5.
You Won't Be Disappointed!
Cran from Gig Harbor, WA on 06/18/2010 said:
This unit is like new, very clean and well appointed. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet retreat yet close to beach, golf, and shops.
Very clean with all the amenities needed for a great vacation.
Kristin from Annapolis, MD on 10/26/2013 said:
We really enjoyed staying in this complex. The house was spotless and provided some other unexpected amenities such as snorkeling gear, coolers and beach chairs. The only downside is that it was a little ways from Kona-Kailua and the airport (requiring a rental car) but it is very close to both grocery stores, some strip mall restaurants and only 1/2 mile from a great beach. We rented here in order to watch the Ironman triathlon. If you're renting a place as a competitor, the unit had plenty of room for bicycles and gear in the garage and had easy access on race morning to drop off a competitor near the start line (about a 5 mile drive). Also had washer and dryer which you'd need for all that gear you bring along. All in all, this is a good rental for the race or just a nice vacation.
HL from Honolulu on 09/27/2013 said:
First class all the way. Maintained at the highest level. All you need to have an wonderful stay in Kailua Kona. Never will we stay in a hotel again. This is the way to go. Close to shopping center and a great eateries.
Loved the accommodations - I will definitely recommend to family
Emmy from Brentwood Bay on 09/11/2013 said:
Excellent place for accommodations Nice and quiet Pool nice Suggest a propane barbecue
Very peacefull and enjoyable
Mark from Santa Ana, CA on 08/16/2013 said:
We were very close to two of the best snorkeling beaches and just up the road was a market. The grounds were very clean, the pool beautiful and there was a good deal of beach equipment in hand in our condo. Fun!!
Chris from Bay Area on 08/11/2013 said:
Large, comfortable, nicely furnished townhouse in a great location. We had a wonderful time and appreciated the fresh fruit basket! Nicely maintained home in a great location between Kona and Captain Cook. Would definitely rent again.
Alika & Kels from Maui on 06/29/2013 said:
This home was a perfect choice for our stay in Kona! It was great for our kids and it was very nice. The condo had absolutely everything that we needed. Our family did not want to leave and the aC was lovely because it was very hot! We would definetly stay here again and we hope to do so soon!!
Hey Paradise found!
oldYAWKER from foothills..ca. on 06/28/2013 said:
Second time here. This place is huge and well stocked..spices, snorkel gear easy to park near your condo. Nice fruit basket for us on arrival. Near supermarket and gas and just far away enough from the bustle of Kona. Nice pool..uncrowded! Please let me come back!
A week in paradise
Susan from Lawrence, KS on 06/05/2013 said:
We enjoyed staying in unit b-1. It was the perfect size for our family of 6. it was close to food, shopping and the beach. It was a great base of operations for our week long stay. I especially loved having laundry facilities and being able to eat meals in. It was also nice to have a place for the family to gather which you don't get with 3 hotel rooms.
Gds from Washington on 04/29/2013 said:
We have vacationed in Kona for over twenty years and were impressed by how fully this condo was fitted out. Everything we could think of or need was provided. It was thoughtful and very much appreciated! We would have loved a barbecue grill on the lanai, but that was the only thing that we missed. The carpet has been abused by former guests which is a shame as everything else was up to date and spotless! We'll use this one again.
Na Hale O Keauhou Touwhome B-1 Outstanding
Cookie from Lancaster PA on 03/19/2013 said:
Our check-in was very smooth. The cleaning crew was on site and left us get our keys before they were done cleaning. The unit was immaculate and well appointed. We had only one minor concern reported with the downstairs toilet making a random whistling noise. The location of this unit is outstanding and the views are wonderful, especially at sunset. The owners even provided beach chairs and a boogie board that we made use of. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a place for their family to stay on the Big Island since it has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths.
Charlotte from Honolulu on 03/12/2013 said:
We always return to Na Hale O Keauhou b/c it's convenient, clean & spacious. Tastefully furnished and quiet. Close to food shopping, entertainment & access roads. This time the beds were not as comfortable, that would be my only negative comment.
Wonderful stay in a wonderful place.
Jane from Eagle, ID on 01/27/2013 said:
My husband & I traveled from Boise, id to meet our son, his wife and step-granddaughter, who traveled from anchorage, AK. This condo was absolutely ideal for us as it gave us older folks a very nice bedroom accommodation with our own bathroom & closet on the bottom floor. Our kids stayed in the master upstairs, while our 17 year old granddaughter occupied the other upstairs bedroom. Everyone had their own bathroom & that was outstanding. The condo has almost everything you could ask for. The washer/dryer were absolutely invaluable, the view from the lanai was awesome, wish we had brought our binoculars with us to see the whales better, beautiful sunsets every night, we cooked dinner in most nights & the kitchen has most everything you need, we all would have loved to have had an outdoor grill, but we did go all the way to the pool a couple of nights to use the grill there, but hard to keep the food hot doing that. We had a beautiful basket of goodies waiting upon our arrival from the owners, thank you so very much. Couldn't try the whole bean coffee in the basket as a grinder was needed & there was not one in the kitchen. Everyone was very responsive to our needs, from the cleaning man who was still working there when we arrived shortly after 3PM, to the man who helped get some replacement light bulbs in the bathroom & got the pest control man out promptly for some critter control. The garage is full of wonderful amenities for taking to the beach or the pool. Speaking of the pool, it was fantastic, it looked and smelled very fresh & clean along with the beautiful large hot tub, also smelling & looking very fresh & clean. Our kids also used the exercise equipment & thoroughly enjoyed the workout room. We all really loved this lovely home & its location which was so close to the shopping center with grocery store, Longs, several restaurants & of course right off alii Dr!
Kath from Prince George, British Columbia on 01/10/2013 said:
We very much enjoyed the condo and the beautiful sunsets. We had a wonderful vacation and loved the island, the condo and the service. Suggestion: As towels are not to be dried on the decks perhaps provide a small drying rack in the carport. We don't like to use the clothes dryer as we try to conserve energy. We didn't receive a yellow card but they are not a good idea. Thank you very much.
Spacious, well appointed, and location, location, location!
DC Vacationer from Washington, DC on 12/24/2012 said:
The Na Hale O Keauhou homes were a perfect choice for our vacation. They afforded excellent access to Kailuna Kona and all it has to offer, and the nearby shopping center was a big plus. We saw (and enjoyed!) the entirety of The Big Island, but it was an enormous comfort to return to unit B-1 at the end of every day.
CaliforniaJack from Benicia, CA on 09/27/2012 said:
We were very happy with this condo--it's beautiful, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. I particularly loved the artwork. My husband and I stayed here with my senior citizen mother--she had a downstairs room and bath all to herself with a walk-in shower that was just perfect. We lived on the lanai--morning coffee, meals, sunset cocktails--all with a beautiful ocean view. The community was beautiful, clean, and quiet. There's a very nice pool and hot spa with full kitchen, BBQ, and exercise room in the clubhouse. The complex is minutes away from the Keahou shopping center, and 5-10 minutes from historic Kailua and several beaches. All in all, an excellent value for the price.
Herb & Mary Ellen from Lafayette Louisiana on 07/10/2012 said:
We could not have asked for a better place to spend 5 wonderful days on the Big Island. The unit was beautiful, well maintained, spacious, and had everything in it we needed. We felt at home the minute we arrived and hated to leave. The sunsets were great, the location perfect, and we will be back the first chance we get. A special thanks to aloha Condos for adjusting our rate when one of our couples had to drop out at the last minute. The 36 holes of golf at Kona Country Club was excellent, reasonably priced, and just two minutes away. All in all, we experienced a first class operation, and an outstanding townhome. Mahalo to Chuck and company for making our visit a memorable one!!
The Drakes from Boulder, CO on 06/18/2012 said:
First off, I want to say that Chuck at aloha Condos was great to work with. He was prompt with his responses and very accommodating. The condo was so spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The layout was perfect for our party of 5, which included two small children (ages 4 & 6), my husband and I, and my 81 year old mother. Having the ground floor bed/bathroom was perfect for her. Every room (including the closets!) had such a grand feeling and all the finishes were top-notch. The boogie boards/beach toys in the garage were a big plus as well. The grounds were lovely, the pool well-kept and the workout room perfect. Also, the location can't be beat. Having the shopping center nearby as well as a fabulous snorkeling beach made life a lot easier. I would highly recommend this unit!
We had a wonderful family vacation.
Dena from Ovando Montana on 04/22/2012 said:
We recently stayed in B-1 condo, upon arrival we found a nice basket of local fruit, canned jelly and a canvas bag. It was fun to taste all the different things and we used the bag on every trip to the beach. The condo was everything that was said in the ad. There was a shopping center with a theater with-in walking distance. The teenagers in our party loved that! The home was very comfortable, and it included everything we needed for our stay.The washer & dryer was great to have so we could pack less and be able to laundry. The view from the lanai was breathtaking, it was a great spot for late afternoon mai tai's and to watch the sunset. It was very easy to make yourself feel at home and relax. I would gladly return for another stay!
wonderful time at the condo and in Hawaii
Diana from Lincoln, Montana on 04/21/2012 said:
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Na Hale O Keauhou Townhouse. We found everything we needed there.The kitchen was well supplied as were the bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable and lots of closet space. The view from the Lanai was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting there with our mai tais every evening to watch the sun set. Would recommend this to any one I know. Made our vacation so much nicer.
Very comfortable condo, nice view, good location, quiet, secure,
Mountain Top from Toppenish WA on 03/09/2012 said:
2nd time there. Maintenance was great. We had a small problem with the screen door sticking and they were there that day to fix it. We loved the split pool. It was great for families with small children. Close to grocery and drug stores and walking distance for adults to beach. All 3 bedrooms have their own bath and one of the bedrooms is located on the main floor is perfect for older people who may have trouble with stairs. 2 decks from which we saw whales swim by on two occasions. Beautiful well furnished condo. We hope to get back there again
Helen from Arlington Heights. IL on 01/05/2012 said:
This unit exceeded the description provided and also exceeded our expectations. The furnishings were top notch and comfortable with all the appliances and tools (kitchen stuff) that we could ever have needed. The unit was extremely clean and well kept. Bedrooms, bathrooms, closets and living areas were all large and comfortable. The views from the unit were excellent. We never had to leave the lanai to see the sunsets (we did see the green flash one night!). The property is very peaceful and quiet. The pool, bar-b-que and workout facilities were located close by and were easy to use. In fact there were very few people using these facitlites so it did not even feel like we were sharing them. The beach was a short walk away as was the grocery store and other shops. This is a terrific location! This is a beautiful property and is the best of any property we have stayed at on the Big Island. Thank you!
Spacious, good location, and great value!
bittersweet1 from Cleveland Heights on 01/03/2012 said:
We greatly enjoyed staying at this condo. It is nicely decorated, and it is very large and spacious for how much it costs; it really is a great value! The location is a little farther down ali'i, so it is not really close to the "strip," but I rather like it this way. When we got to the development, we were greeted by a retiree walking his dog. This makes me think the condo development is more calm and probably more family oriented. The location is very close to Long's Drugs and to the grocery store. There is really easy access to the highway also. When you walk into the door, there is an open kitchen on the left and the living room is in front of you. You can also see sliding doors, which open up to a lanai that has a nice view of the ocean. Usually in Hawaii, when they say ocean view, you're lucky to get a peek of a sliver of ocean, but that's not the case here. My parents stayed in the only downstairs bedroom, which has the queen bed because they do not like to climb stairs. My sister stayed in the master bedroom with her son because it has a garden tub in addition to a shower. (The kid likes to take baths.) I stayed in the room with the two twin beds. The place was very clean and comfortable. We caught up with the caretakers when we checked in, and they seemed to be doing a thorough job. Even the towels were soft and smelled good--something you don't seem to get from most hotels/motels. I would stay here again. It felt like home. The only complaint was from my mom who wished they had newer non-stick pans or a stainless steel pan to cook with. Also, make sure not to leave any dirty dishes in the dishwasher. It could attract bugs.

Darren from Hilo/Pittsburgh on 01/01/2012 said:

2 weeks stay in Paradise
Laura and family from Calgary, Alberta on 11/16/2011 said:
We satyed in unit B-1 and we could not have asked for anything better. The unit was well equiped with all the features you would find in your own home. The view was spectacular and we loved the local residents in the condo, they gave us great advice as to where to visit. The pool was fantastic, can't wait to return to Na Hale O Keauhou.
clean and well furnished house, centrally located. perfect place
ishwar from san jose on 01/08/2011 said:
had a great time at na hale o keauhou. three bed / three bath was ideal for a group of friends. a well furnished kitchen and dining area helped us load up our calories before heading out. the view from patio and refreshing and perfect for early morning coffee. Driving distance to everything. Strongly recommend this place for friends/family groups.

lewis from northern california on 08/03/2010 said:
This was our first trip to Hawaii. I have been to many oceanfronts around the world and this rates at the top for the price. Ocean view with access to pool and spa nearby. Well kept condo just close to town with easy exit to Volcano or wherever else.We stayed for 10 days and I hope you can stay at least a week to get that hawaii vibe.
Na Hale Keauhou Townhouse
americanyon from Novato, CA on 03/10/2010 said:
Hello, My family and I recently stayed at this townhome for our vacation. We loved the place. It's a very new unit with nice amenities. The kitchen is awesome with granite countertops and nice tile floors throughout the unit. The unit is very close to each other and many people had their windows open for the cool breeze. As a result, any conversations we had or our neighbors had we heard them all. Our lanai is about three feet from our neighbor kitchen. So when we dine in the lanai area, our neighbor can see us dining and we can hear them cookings. We wish for a little bit more privacy.
Great vacation Stay
Cecilia & John from Naperville, Chicago on 10/10/2009 said:
We love this place inside and out. What a beautiful home in a beatuiful community! The location is very good, very convienient to get around. Initially we had some trouble to open the gate with the code, but after tips from the local contact, we had no problem afterwards. The local contact is very easy to reach and able to full fill our request quickly. Very happy with the cleanness of the home and good service from local contact. Thanks for sharing the house with us.
Well Kept - Very Relaxing
rsara from Grand Rapids, MI on 04/02/2009 said:
The condo was in excellent condition and very clean. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The condo was newer and very well maintained and decorated. We all had a wonderful and very relaxing time during our stay there.
The Ground Floor Penthouse
Michael Fox from Kapaa, HI. on 04/02/2009 said:
The website pictures looked wonderful but looks can be deceiving. Not in this case. It was like staying in a 5 star hotel without elevators. It felt homey and personal and someone obviously put a lot of thought into the details. The home was beautifully appointed and super clean. Our only mild disappointment was the outside patio which was sparsely furnished and without a barbecue. The close proximity to grocery shopping was an added bonus. We had a fun time and would recommend this condo highly.
watson1 from Thousand Oaks, CA on 04/01/2009 said:
The condo we rented was truly fantastic. We stayed during the Ironman World Championships and this location was close enough to the action without being right in the middle of it. Beautiful ocean views, close proximity to stores and beaches, and a completely stocked beautiful condo all made for a wonderful experience on the Big Island. I would highly recommend this location for anyone looking to stay on the Big Island and looking for a quiet, serene place to stay.
The most perfect, clean and inviting town home we have ever rent
Linda from Austin, TX on 12/03/2013 said:
The split level home was very clean and inviting. We felt comfortable the minute we walked in. There was no clutter or unnecessary nic-nacs on the countertops. However, everything you might want or need was already provided by the owners. We loved the location which is within walking distance of the best snorkeling around Kona. We all enjoyed the beautiful pool in the evening and of course Sam Choys for lunch a short walk away. Unit I-1 is the best in our 10 years of renting homes through Vrbo and Home away. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for sharing your home with us.
M&P from Washington State from Woodinville on 11/18/2013 said:
The condo was super clean and had everything we needed and more. Excellent service from local rep when we asked to have the aC turned on (it was hotter in November than we expected). Bathrooms came stocked with shampoos/soaps etc so no need to pack those. Laundry facility was perfect. We were surprised to even find 12-yr old scotch in the cabinet! (i think people go to Costco and leave behind what they don't consume!). Pool facilities were close and immaculate. The complex was quiet and convenient to shopping. It was a lovely place to stay and we hope to return sooner than later.
We give Unit I-1 a big thumbs up!
N. Huang from Toronto, Canada on 08/22/2013 said:
Unit I-1 at Na Hale O was awesome. The owners were very generous with supplying everything to make the stay comfortable. Little things like thick floor mats in every washroom, fluffy towels, strong WiFi strength & speed, big new beach towels, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, various laundry detergents to wash clothes. Also, access to the garage was a big plus! We utilized the drying rack that was provided for drying all our beach gear inside the garage. The unit was extremely clean and the a/C was already on and house refreshingly cold when we arrived. The unit was in a quiet section with ample parking, and a short distance to the pool. We have stayed at various units within the Na Hale O complex 4 times in total and just love the community! There is a grocery store (KTa) and great coffee shop (Peaberry & Galette) just up the hill, and an awesome snorkeling spot (Kahalu'u) just down the hill with tons of fish and beautiful coral. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the Big Island, and have already recommended this gem to all our friends and family.
Beautiful Condo Rental
Beth from Middleton, WI on 03/02/2013 said:
The condo was very clean and well appointed. The layout is our favorite of the three options at Na Hale O Keauhou. We had all that we needed and more. The access was the garage was greatly appreciated! Lastly, thank you for the large drying rack. I think that all of the units should have at least one (or two) drying racks since it is not appropriate to hang items out on the lanais or balconies.
Ann Marie from Santa Barbara, CA on 02/10/2013 said:
We couldn't have been more pleased. This condo is spacious, beautiful, and came equipped with everything we could have needed. The location is excellent - close to beaches, shopping, and lots of good scenic walks. We made good use of the pool and BBQ, and the owners provided lots of good tourist information, which was greatly appreciated. We can't wait to go back!!!
Wonderful condo, location and management
Dick & Ali from Minneapolis, Mn. on 03/26/2013 said:

Vacation at I3
Paul O'B from Sierra Vista, AZ on 01/28/2013 said:
This unit is ideally located in a quiet part of the beautiful complex. It is uniquely furnished to provide luxury and appeal to the guests. It provides all the comforts of home and we enjoyed every minute. It is close to excellent restaurants, snorkeling beaches and golfing. It provides a beautiful view of the sunset from the lanai. The pool and workout room are beautiful should you decide to relax at home for the day. It is definitely an excellent value.
Stunning condo in prime location.
Doug and Margaret from Lincoln City, Or on 01/01/2013 said:
A beautifully decorated 2 story condo in a quiet location close to beaches and a small shopping center. Gorgeous master suite and master bath.Immediate attention to minor requests by local management. We look forward to returning in the near future.
A wonderful place in a great location with all the facilities a
Very Satisfied Renter from Sierra Vista, AZ on 07/09/2012 said:
The unit was so clean and well appointed that we felt welcome and comfortable the instant we walked in the door. Our ocean views from both the lower and upper lanais gave us spectacular Hawaii sunset sightings. The onsite pool, hot tub, BBQ and workout room fitted all our immediate recreational needs and shopping, ocean sports, golfing, etc. were just outside the complex gate. It was the great Hawaii experience we always expected. The best value on the island!
The most amazing place to stay in Kona!!!
Dr. Bouzid and family from San Francisco Ca on 07/08/2012 said:
This rental condo far exceeded our expectations in every way. My husband, Dr. B, and our three children and I came and had every need met. The complex is gorgeous containing a stunning pool, huge jacuzzi and great work out room!!! What was really impressive was the five star interior of the condo!!! Fabulous furniture all high end everything was new and spotless ...feels like we are staying at the Ritz Carlton(minus the price!)...we will definitely come back again and again and will recommend this place to all of our friends. It is close to everything you want to do and yet when you are in the condo you feel like you are in a private little heaven...Bravo to the owner! And Mahalo for a wonderful memorable trip!!! Aloha
Definately recomend this condo

This unit is verywell appointed, from the kitchen through the bedrooms. The location is very convienent for a visit to Kona. It has one of the best views in the Na Hale complex.
Great Family Rental
JBR from Boise, ID on 12/02/2013 said:
This unit was set up wonderfully for a family rental. It was well stocked. The neighbors wouldn't tolerate noise, so we had to have the aC on to keep the windows closed so he wouldn't come bother us. Other than that, the unit was very comfortable and convenient.
A lovely rental in a beautiful place.
Beth from Middleton on 11/24/2013 said:
We enjoyed our stay in this unit. We have stayed there once before. We enjoyed the view and the extra grassy area that is around this unit.
Life in Heaven
Daniel Robins from Newcastle on 10/22/2013 said:
We stayed at the condo for nine nights and enjoyed every second of our time at the condo and on the Big Island. Would highly recommend this condo. Had one issue, the fire alarm battery went flat, but contacted the local tradesman and it was fixed within one hours, outstanding service. It was great to have a crib and child gates for the stairs, this was a huge assistance with a one year old. It was greatly appreciated to have games and equipment to utilise whilst at the condo. Would stay there again if we go back to the Big Island.
Super! Good price and good place!
Denisko55 from Omsk on 07/04/2013 said:
We stayed at I-6 for week in June, 2013. Modern and clean condo, absolutely not noise from outside (not like in Waikiki). Shopping center and beach park in walking distance. Private pool for community.
Lots of space, new, and clean

Great base for our multigenerational party to explore the island. Nicely finished and equiped with lots of extras like beach gear, etc.

quiet and comfortable
Jen D from Rescue, Ca on 10/18/2012 said:
Arrived in Kona during Ironman week. Loved the energy in town! It was great to be close to the action, but far enough away for a quiet night's sleep. Condo was well stocked with dishes, towels, etc. Also nice to have snorkel gear, boogie boards to use.
Home away from home...
Esparza Ohana from Orange County, CA on 08/08/2012 said:
Thank you for sharing your island home with our family. It was very comfortable and tranquil. Everything down to the laundry detergent was provided. The shopping center was so close which made it convenient. As well as the local beaches and restaurants. We came to visit our family on the island. We have already recommended your home to all of our friends and family members and can not wait to return to the islands and stay at your home again.
Awesome all around!!

Gorgeous, convenient, clean, and reasonably priced condo!
JGiglio from Lincroft, NJ on 06/28/2012 said:
We have 3 boys and 1 teen girl. This condo was perfect for us, because my daughter had her own room and felt like a princess. The condo had plenty of space and great conveniences for us. We cooked meals and had all of the necessary items like spices, pans, bowls, etc. We did our laundry there in the washer/dryer daily. We used the beach gear - snorkel, beach towels, and boogie boards. There were beach chairs, coolers, and umbrella too! There were 3 nice TVs for everyone to use with DVD players. Shopping was less than a mile away, and we rented movies in the Red Box at the drug store there. Restaurants were also closeby, and we were only about 20 minutes from the airport. We were close to all kinds of activities on alii Drive, and we ventured out further too to the volcano and black sand beach. We had a great experience in this condo, and we'd highly recommend this condo to anyone going to the Big Island.
Clean, Comfortable & Great Value!
C. Graham from Honolulu on 01/31/2012 said:
Pleasantly appointed 3/3 Condo, convenient to shopping, beaches, restaurants!! Clean with all supplies. Good roadway access and plenty of parking. Would suggest having a vegetable peeler though. Otherwise, it appeared that we had all the kitchen stuff. Would not hesitate to recommend this condo to any of our friends. One of the dining chair arms was loose but when we mentioned this & need for more paper good, there was immediate response from the manager. Great service!!!
Na Hale O Keauhou Townhome I-6
Stayed in Townhome I-6 from Indy on 05/12/2011 said:
This visit was the second time we have stayed at Na Hale O Keauhou, and our first stay in Townhome I-6. I grew-up on the Big Island, and in the many years that my husband and I have visited my family there, this is our favorite complex. It is reasonably priced, clean, and very comfortable. We now have two young children, so we particularly enjoyed this unit, due to its family friendly nature with a cute bunk room, plenty of kids books, crayons, beach/pool stuff, etc.. We also cook in a lot and host family when we visit, and the house was comfortably laid out for entertaining, and the kitchen was well equipped. My 6'+ husband would have liked a king size bed in the master bedroom, and we had some problems with the remotes and DVD players. But, if those were our biggest complaints...we will certainly stay there again, and again!
Fit like a glove
Snow break from Dalton Gardens, ID on 02/20/2011 said:
We gathered adult family members from around the country for a wedding. This condo fit our needs perfectly. It was 100% as advertized. Everything was in order when we arrived. It was well stocked with all the basics plus several extras suited for use on the beach.
Clean, Comfortable, Safe and Enjoyable Home
Hui from Shanghai on 02/08/2011 said:
We stayed in Na Hale Townhouse I-6 for 7 days. It was immaculately clean, stylishly decorated, well equipped and conveniently located. The community is gated with code entry. It is 1 minute to the Keauhou shopping center where you find grocery, drug store, restaurants, post office and, yes! urgent care. The home is well stocked with everything I can possibly need, incl. beach chairs, umbrella, diving boards, and children's books and games. The servie is first class, too. Booking online is smooth. The second day of our stay, we needed help with high speed internet. I made one phone call and Bruce was there within 10 minutes. All in all, this was a perfect vacation home. I highly recommend it to anybody who visits the Big Island.
Beautiful place to stay
Helen from New York on 10/20/2010 said:
The villa is beautiful with excellent facilities : We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back. The snorkels and boogie boards were a great thing to have and the kitchen cupboards had all the facilities we could possibly require. It should have been made much clearer though that a car was needed. Overall would come again
R.M. from West Linn on 12/01/2013 said:
A beautiful home with everything you need (even a lovely gift basket on arrival). It was a great starting point for exploring the west side of the island. We definitely recommend this place, but would tell you to skip the air conditioning. It costs extra and doesn't do much. Better to let the trade winds do the work.
Amazing Kona Experience in the lead up to Ironman!
Vanessa from Auckland, New Zealand on 10/22/2013 said:
We stayed here for 4 weeks in the lead up to Ironman Kona and our time here was amazing. The house is kitted out with absolutely everything, is beautifully kept and was a pleasure to stay in - fair to say we didn't want to come home! Bob was absolutely awesome from the enquiry stage through until check out stage - he went over and above! The gift basket on arrival was a lovely surprise. Would highly recommend!
Immaculate Home in Great Location
UALSDGUY from San Diego on 07/28/2013 said:
First let me say, working with the owner from beginning to end was great! Bob provided thorough instructions and was great with follow up communication. We were able to "check-in" early because no one had been there the night before which was great. When we walked in we were amazed at the cleanliness and the brand new feel of the place. Not a chip of paint missing, no dinged up furniture. Even the white carpet upstairs didn't have a spot on it (amazing). To our surprise a welcome basket arrived that evening with fruit, coffee and goodies which was a really nice personal touch. The complex is quiet which we appreciate and everyone we encountered was friendly. The condo had a well equipped kitchen, wifi, beach towels, boogie boards and snorkel gear which was very convenient. There was soap in the bathrooms (no shampoo). The complex also has a decent gym and refreshing pool and jacuzzi but we spent most of our time in the ocean. There is a shopping centre just 5 minutes walk away with a grocery store and restaurants. Keep in mind this complex is not in the center of Kona but about a 10 minute drive away. We prefer Keauhou and always stay in this area because being in town is noisy no matter where you stay and lets face it, a bit ghetto. Kona town is great to go to, make sure you hit Lava Java for breakfast and/or lunch, but then we want to get away from the crowds and noise. The only tiny complaint I would have is the cleaning fee is a bit steep especially since the checkout requirements had me collect and take the trash out, wash and fold the towels among other little clean up items. I felt a bit as though I spent the morning cleaning up rather than enjoying my last day. But, this would not prevent me from staying again. We will be back for sure as we absolutely loved the place!!
Stunning home, stunning location
Dave from Wakefield on 07/06/2013 said:
We stayed here for 5 days and wished we had booked longer. The house is lovely located in a gated community. The house has 2 bedrooms ideal for a family or 4 adults, the house has a great kitchen and lounge area. Everything is in perfect working order and I immaculate clean. The community area has a small pool which is well maintained as is the entire area. If you are looking for a high quality, quiet location this is for you
Fabulous place on the Big Island...!
Bill and Cindy J from Seabeck, WA on 06/21/2013 said:
First, my apologies for a "late" review. The reason for our visit in april was to celebrate my beautiful lady's retirement from a 37 year career in the banking industry. Upon our return home to Washington we have been very busy prepping our home to put it on the market...and that's now accomplished! But, enough with lame excuses! Lol This was our 8th visit to the Islands, the 3rd to the Kona Coast. Not a ton of experience, but I'm reluctant to tell other folks about this particular place, since we'd love to just keep it our secret get-a-way spot! Everything about it was perfect...from the welcome basket, to the fully equipped kitchen, and to the spotless upkeep. Everything we could ask for in a quiet spot with all of the amenities so conveniently located. A little bit busy with traffic at times, but by mid-evening things quieted down nicely. We especially appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the lanai, with it's excellent Weber grill. The view from the master bedroom lanai was particularly pleasant for viewing those spectacular Hawaii sunsets with a glass of wine in hand. :-) The proximity to Turtle Beach for snorkeling, and the snorkeling cruise on Fair Winds-Hula Kai was also a big plus for us. Would we stay here again? Yes! As soon as we can get back!!! Heartfelt thanks to Bob and Judy for sharing their lovely condo with us. Bill & Cindy J
Wonderful unit for relaxation
Heather from Kenai on 06/14/2013 said:
This unit was perfect for our family ... Was stocked with toilet paper - garbage bags - paper towels and plenty of other items ... The owners are fantastic to work with ... Great location with a grocery store up the hill ... Wonderful grounds and kid friendly pool ... Would love to stay again and again !!
Had a wonderful experience!
Dale from San Jose, CA on 04/12/2013 said:
This town home is conviently located near a shopping center, and is only a few minutes from downtown Kailua. The swimming pool/spa is only a short walk. The town home is very well equipped with BBQ, coffee mill and other conviences to make it feel like home. We had a great time, and recommend this town home enthusiastically.
A home away from home
Helen from Wellington, New Zealand on 11/05/2012 said:
The entire experience from booking through to our stay was absolutely superb! The host provided thorough instructions and were good with follow up communication. When we arrived at the townhome there was a welcome basket of organic goodies for us to enjoy during our stay - a really nice personal touch. Our party was my partner and I and my elderly parents. We were previously staying in a so called 5 star resort in Maui, and the comfort and quality of this townhome beat it hands down. Everyone loved their stay in the townhome and the decor and furnishings are of a very high standard. The townhome was presented immaculately and was spotless and well equipped from the kitchen, wifi, through to all the gear needed for the beach which was a real bonus. The guest book was very informative and helped us plan our activities and dining out. We loved the fact that it felt like our home as soon as we entered. We didn't get to use the gym or pool but the pool certainly looked inviting. There is a shopping centre just 5 minutes walk away. It is not in the centre of Kona, but only 5-10 minutes drive away which is not a problem with a vehicle. I would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation to anyone and would certainly return one day!
Peaceful condo and central location to all the sights of Kailua
Audrey and Mike from Walnut Creek, CA on 08/20/2012 said:
This condo was an amazing find! The condo was well stocked with all we needed (including boogie boards!)for a wonderfully relaxing stay. Kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to feel at home minutes after we arrived. The location was ideal both for sightseeing and for relaxing. The condo is located right next to the condo complex pool but was still peaceful virtually every day. We slept with all the windows open every night. It is within minutes of beaches, snorkeling, and the Kailua "downtown" area. So much to see in Kona...we will be back!
We had everything we needed.
Donna from Santa Barbara on 04/09/2012 said:
This condo and it's owner are interested in making your stay on the Big Island perfect in every way. It was comfortable, well appointed, and beautifully decorated. The place was spotless and we had everything we needed. Thanks again.
E and N from Colorado USA on 12/07/2011 said:
We stayed at J-2 in the Na Hale complex, and it made for a great trip. We found a kitchen that was nicely furnished so that we could prepare meals- the unit itself is spacious, modern, and comfortable. We found it to be a bit noisy in the mornings-so if you want to sleep in, probably not your unit- but if like us, you are up early for the next adventure-it is not an issue. The unit comes with all you want inside-and is walking distance to market or beaches, and easy access for the main road to town or points south The reson we ended up staying at this unit versus another condo was the owner- He responded to our email request for info promptly--as a matter of fact, we never did get any reply from 2 other condos listed on line that we contacted. We hope to stay here again !
This townhome was like coming home to our own home.
Laura and Steve from Lynnwood, WA on 11/23/2011 said:
The townhouse was perfect and the location was great. We especially appreciated the childs high chair, crib and stair gate for our 15 month old. The view from the master bedroom was a fabulous way to start the day and we loved the gentle trade wind breezes blowing through the home every day. The pool was also really nice and we appreciated the beach and pool amenities in the garage. We would definitely stay here again.
Staying in paradise
Craig from Davis, CA on 10/01/2011 said:
We spent much of out time at the beach...Magic Sands is awesome, but is called Magic because from time to time it disappears, then reappears. It was with us our entire trip and we loved it. It's a 10 minute drive and easy to ride bikes to as well. The gated complex was nearly empty so I could get in my morning work-outs easily and we had the pool to ourselves.
We are planning to come back
Marcella from Mill Creek, WA on 08/23/2011 said:
We truly enjoyed our stay in J-2. It is clear that the owners have spent time thinking about how to make the renters' experience a good one. The views from the patio (a bit of the ocean and a golf course) and the MB deck (full view of the ocean) were wonderful. I am a bit of a neat freak and the unit was very clean. I was especially appreciative of the fact that many basics had been left at the unit for us to use. No need to buy salt and pepper. The kitchen was fully equipped making cooking a breeze. We were sad that we did not have more time to spend.
Looking forward to our next visit
N D from Los Altos, California on 08/20/2011 said:
We loved this condo! It had everything we wanted and everything was in great condition. We particularly enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen and outdoor grill. We took advantage of the beach chairs and towels almost every day when we visited the nearby fabulous snorkling beach. Make sure to visit the Sat farmer's market at the Keauhou shopping center and pick up some freshly caught ono for the grill: we recommend a passion fruit marinade! The beds were comfy, there were books to read (including field guides to the exotic birds and fishes), and we could plug in our ipod and listen to our favorite music while lounging on on the couch drinking freshly ground complimentary Kona coffee. What could be better? Just wish we could have stayed longer...
Sarah Porter from Auburn, WA on 07/08/2011 said:
I spent many hours researching lodging for our Hawaiian vacation. We weren't interested in hotels and Kona condos are a dime a dozen. When I found the Na Hale O Keauhou townhome J-2, I was curious. It looked good in the pictures and the price was right but would it live up to our expectations? I can honestly say that J-2 exceeded our every expectation. We arrived to a huge gift basket on the doorstep filled with local goodies. We opened the front door to find a beautifully appointed home with every amenity you could want. Two comfortable outdoor sitting areas provided the perfect place to watch the ocean and the sunset. The pool was only steps away and although shared with the community it was rarely busy and always inviting. And, although not located directly on the ocean the nearest beach, and best snorkeling on the island, is only a 10 minute walk (or 3-minute drive) down the road. To welcome their guests the Owners provided an excellent personal guide to the island including their recommendations on where to eat, snorkel, hike, etc. And their recommendations are spot on. We enjoyed excellent meals and wonderful beaches. And since they knew their guests would be spending time at the beach there was a selection of beach and snorkel gear to borrow along with a large stockpile of beach towels. I would classify this home as Luxury accommodations as we found it nicer than most 5-star hotels. Although the home is used by a continuous flow of guests it was exceptionally clean and left us feeling as if we had walked into a brand new model home. The only improvement I might suggest, and keep in mind this is a personal preference, is a king size bed. My hubby and I are both very tall people over 6-ft and a king size make all the difference. But we made do with some romantic cuddling in the very comfortable queen positioned with a view of the ocean. Our stay at J-2 was exceptional and I don't hesitate recommending it. We hope to return again soon ourselves.
Brian from Oregon on 05/17/2011 said:
We were completely delighted with this condo. It was great to be so close to the pool since the kids wanted to swim every day. The condo has a highchair, crib, pack-n-play and baby gate as well as beach toys for kids. The decor is very classy and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and in a great location. We took advantage of the free cultural events at the Keauhou Shopping Center just minutes away. We had a minor issue when we first arrived but it was taken care of immediately. Also, we forgot some items when we left so we contacted the owner and he arranged to have them sent to us asap. So, not only is the condo wonderful but so is the owner. We can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next trip to the Big Island.
Beatufiul Townhome... An absolute Charm!
Big Island Vacationer from San Francisco Bay Area on 04/28/2011 said:
We stayed at this beautiful townhome for 8 nights in april 2011 and had a fantastic time! This is a very clean, comfortable, quiet (and safe... inside a gated community), well-maintained, and beautifully-decorated townhome. It is close to grocery, restaurants, and great snorkeling sites. Very well-equipped... It had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to snorkel gear, beach chairs, and flashlights (that we needed for lava cave tours). The owner, Bob, always answered our questions promptly... was an absolute pleasure dealing with him. We truly enjoyed our stay there and looking forward to going back again soon!
Wonderful townhouse in a great location!
Happy Vacationer from Denver, CO on 12/22/2010 said:
This is a wonderfully decorated and maintained townhome in a newer condo complex just south of Kailua-town (Kona). The owners have thoughtfully provided for every need ~ fully equipped kitchen, upscale barbeque grill, plenty of towels and amenities for beach going. The home is beautifully decorated in tasteful, sophisticated furnishings. We have stayed in many condos on the Big Island over the years, and this is the one to which we will be returning!
Fantastic condo, well equiped; great value!
ColdCanuckDog from Calgary, Canada on 09/23/2010 said:
We (2 couples) stayed in J-2 for 5 nights; the condo was absolutely spotless clean, and had everything we could possibly need and more! The kitchen has every imaginable utensil, pot, pan, dish, and power tool! The complex was extremely quiet (likely due to the time of year), and well equiped with a pool, whirl pool, and a small gym which all appeared well maintained. The condo is also close to some shopping, and just up the road from a great beginner snorkling place. Bob was very good to communicate with and answered all our questions in a timely manner. We really enjoyed our relatively short stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to family and friends.
LAB - Calgary from Calgary, Alberta on 09/12/2010 said:
It was a pleasure to stay at this condo. We were very impressed with how well equipped the condo was with household items and beach equipment. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend it!
Luxurious condo at a super afforable price!
Jill and Dan from Auburn, WA on 06/09/2010 said:
We traveled to Kona with our friends for our "last hurrah trip before having kids" and had a fabulous time! The condo was stocked with all the amenities we could have possibly needed...a BBQ, plenty of kitchen supplies, laundry services, the list goes on and on. We even spotted a crib and pack n play, which will come in handy when we come back and/or recommend this place to other family with children. Did I mention everything was in pristine condition? We traveled to Maui about six months prior to this trip, and spent on a 1 bedroom condo what this 2 bd condo cost. We were delighted at the amazing deal in Maui, so you can imagine our shock when finding this spot!! We enjoyed the pool nearly every day, and had many a lunch & dinner on our patio. I cannot recommend this spot more highly...while it isn't located directly on the beach, it was 10-15 minutes walking distance or 2-3 minutes driving distance from several beaches.
A great place to stay with 2 kids
PCC from Ancaster, Ontario, Canada on 05/30/2010 said:
Wonderful 2 bedroom condo. Well furnished. Really nice pool and work out facilities. Well equipped with beach gear. Nice Weber BBQ. ( I have to get one now.) Very quiet surroundings. Nice sunsets. On site manager very helpful. Grocery shopping close by or only a short drive to Costco, Walmart, Safeway or Target in Kona. Best price for gas at Costco. We would have no hesitation going back.
A Wonderful Experience
S. Davies from Vancouver, BC on 04/30/2010 said:
This was a perfect townhouse for two couples to share. The website showed it off perfectly....I looked over it so many times and felt like I'd already been there. It did not disapoint. I was happy to see lots of towels and beach towels and everything else we needed. The location was great. The best thing to do would be to rent a vehicle but it is possible to do a lot without one. There is a shopping centre close by plus a trolley bus that goes into town. Kona is a terrific little town. I also heard the tour bus trip is great. There's lots of books and magazines about the island in the twnhse. The best one to use is one we had also brought with us..Big Island Revealed.(The blue book) Great reviews. I also appreciated the prompt email responses from the owner. A great holiday, just too short!
O. Tshawytscha from chico, ca on 04/16/2010 said:
quiet. relaxing. comfortable. Though not on the ocean, a decent view from our condo (but not all have that). Pool was not utilized by many and was a great place to cool off--it almost felt like a private pool when we only had other folks there at 3 of the 8 times we visited the pool.
A Lovely Place To Stay
SeaOtters from Kent, Washington on 03/27/2010 said:
After 17 days in this beautiful condo it was hard to leave. It really felt like home! From the cozy living room to the fully stocked kitchen to the comfy bedrooms, it has everything one could desire in a vacation home. The BBQ on the lower lanai was handy for nightly grilling, and the upper lanai was a peaceful place to read a book, take an afternoon nap, and watch the Kona sunsets. It was also great to have access to the garage to store golf clubs, travel bags, etc. The only downside to this unit is a bit of "traffic" noise as the residents in the lower buildings leave for work in the mornings. It was a great excuse to get up and go for an early morning walk. It certainly wouldn't stop us from staying here again. We thoroughly enjoyed Nanealoa. Mahalo to Bob and Judy for sharing their wonderful condo.
HOME away from HOME
M.Powell. from Victoria, BC Canada on 03/05/2010 said:
I guess the title says it all....having stayed in J2 on three different occasions for a total of 13 weeks it really feels like home. The gift basket upon arrival is always much appreciated. One of my favourite places in the townhouse is the lanai off the master bedroom, a great place to read and relax on the comfortable chaises, also a wonderful place to appreciate the ocean view and the incredible sunsets. The outdoor patio furniture on the ground floor lanai is very comfortable too, a great place to have meals and make use of the BBQ. The proximity of the Keauhou shopping centre is very convenient, just a short walk and includes a supermarket, drug store, post office, several restaurants, movie theatre etc. The kitchen is very well equipped, there is also a good stock of supplies such as paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, ziploc and garbage bags etc. Having a remote on one of the house keys was very handy, thus avoiding the need to key in a code every time you enter the complex. The grounds are very well maintained and managed. Finally, the owner, Bob Blomberg is a pleasure to deal with, very accessible and always responds promptly when making contact with him. I'm looking forward to my next visit!
Clean, Comfortable, Great Location
sno_bird from Wisconsin on 01/31/2010 said:
Very clean - had everything that one could want. In fact, more than we needed. The snorkel beach was so close (about 10 min on foot), we didn't use the pool. Didn't use the BBQ either, but used the kitchen extensively (can't offer any advice on local restaurants). Nice view, especially from the master bedroom lanai. Convenient to the grocery store (walkable if you don't mind the hill). Fairly new, in great condition and well appointed. Some fairly minor disappointments: the bed was too hard for my taste; to get a good picture on the downstairs TV (from cable), you had to make sure that the DVD player was powered off; the crew that maintains the grounds does a good job, but be prepared for the "2 cycle (engine) symphony" 3 days during the week; some residents use their lanais for entering / exting their units, meaning there may well be foot traffic by your lanai (spooked the wife); the burnt wood smell from the fire up the mountain permeated the air every night. Overall, enjoyed my stay, would consider renting again.
Mrs Bojangles from Cumbria, UK on 01/18/2010 said:
My husband and I stayed in Unit J2 for 15 nights in October. The condo was absolutely wonderful, exactly like the pictures on the website - very tastefully decorated and fitted out with all the mod cons (it was like staying in a show home)! Thank you for the welcome basket on arrival. Cooking in the kitchen was such a pleasure - it had every utensil you could possibly want for. There were also beach chairs/boogie boards/snorkel equipment etc in the garage for use when visiting the beaches. Also, having laundry facilities inside the condo and a barbecue on the lanai was definitely a bonus. The gated complex was very quiet, which suited us. The pool area was beautiful and the grounds were very well maintained. It is situated very close, just a little way down the hill, from the Keauhou shopping centre where we used to go the KTA supermarket for our daily newspaper and groceries and which was very reasonably priced (for Hawaii)! Making reservations for Unit J2 via Aloha Condos was very simple and straightforward and handled efficiently by Bob and Judy(the owners). They were very helpful and emailed the guestbook which contained useful information on both the condo and the island, which assisted in the planning of our vacation. They also advised us on the best options when shopping for groceries, which we were very grateful for. In summary, our vacation at Unit J2 and the Na Hale O Keauhou complex was brilliant and we are hopefully looking to return again this year.

3rd Time is a charm as that how may times we have stayed in this complex. J2 has everything a person could think of right down to your beach chair.Great views and a very quite and well looked after complex. I would not recomend this complex if you are 20's early 30's and looking for long night's on the lani enjoying drinks. It's very quite and any noise is not a good thing.....If your looking to relax.......this is your place.
Tom S. from Berkeley, CA on 05/18/2009 said:
For our first trip to Hawaii, we couldn't have found a more attractive and comfortable condo. The owners have gone to great lengths to provide you with everything you might need and in such an aesthetically pleasing way, from the cozy sofa to the most comfortable bed we've found in a rental. It's proximity to a shopping center for staples, as well as the GREAT Kona snorkeling sites, kept us out of the car and in the water. We had a blast!!! We're already planning our next visit!!
We will stay here again
Picky Traveler from Detroit on 04/29/2009 said:
My husband and I stayed at the Hale Nanealoa townhome in September of 2006. Let me first preface this review that I am very picky about where I stay on vacations. I have stayed through the gamut of different types of accommodations in my life, from motel to luxury. As I get older, my pickiness has increased and I only like to stay at very nice properties. This property is up in the 5 star range and is one of the best where I have stayed. Everything was new and clean and stylish. There was NO white "cheesy" lawn furniture that I have seen at other Hawaiian properties, nor was there the wear and tear typically seen in other condos in Hawaii. The master bathroom is something you would only get at a five or six star hotel and it was very large. I have stayed on nearly all islands in the Hawaiian chain, and this place has been the best. The view was very nice and the pool quiet and relaxing. The grounds were also well maintained. Everything was upscale here. I very much appreciated the gift basket for our wedding anniversary after I was asked on their website if we were going for a special occasion. The owners were very professional and concerned that we had a good time and everything we needed. (This has not been the case at other Hawaiian properties that I have stayed). The price was excellent for the value of this vacation home. I highly recommend Hale Nanealoa.
Excellent Place to Stay!
K8aroo from Santa Rosa, CA on 04/25/2009 said:
I was amazed by how this condo had an "at home" feeling. The complex was secure, clean, and quiet. The condo is close to the pool, which may bother some visitors who want complete serenity. The owner of the condo was always available to get our questions answered before we arrived and had very detailed instructions on how to get to the condo, find keys, and rules of the complex. The views were spectacular from the upper and lower lanai. We were impressed with the quality of linens, towels, and kitchenware. The boogie boards, and snorkel gear were a plus! We felt the location was a perfect starting point and we were able to walk to many places. We spent 2 weeks at the Na Hale O Keauhou. When the time comes take another vacation to Kona, we will definitely want to rent this condo again!
Home away from home.
M .R. P. from Victoria, B C, Canada on 04/19/2009 said:
Once again we enjoyed our recent stay in the J2 townhouse at Hale Nanealoa. We have now spent a total of 7 weeks there in the past 2 years,this should give you an idea of how comfortable we feel there. As before,the added touch of the 'welcome basket' was a lovely treat. The townhouse is well equipped and its proximity to local shopping is great. We really appreciated having the barbeque, which we used often. The chaises on the upstairs lanai are a great place to relax, read and enjoy the ocean view. I must also take time to mention the incredible sunsets which were such a treat each evening. I would not hesitate to recommend to my friends and family that they include staying here in their vacation plans on the Big Island. I look forward to my next visit, hopefully next year. Finally I'd like to say what a pleasure it is dealing with the owner, Bob Blomberg.
Wonderful house! Felt at home being thousands of miiles from ho

Natalie from Scottsdale, AZ on 04/03/2009 said:
This condo lived up to all my hopes for my Big Island adventure! I wanted to LIVE there. It is everything the pictures show it to be. We came with my son and enjoyed taking the quick ride to the public beach just down the road (it is walking distance for some!) whenever we weren't exploring the more distant beaches either up or down the coast (and still used the pool as well!). Enjoyed the farmer's market (outside the nearby grocery store) just up the hill (walked to that one!). It is a beautiful property located in a good area of town.
Spectacular vacation unit
Island hopper from Oahu, Hawaii on 06/09/2013 said:
An absolutely wonderful vacation unit in Kailua-Kona! The owners have thought of everything you may need during your stay. This unit had everything a hotel would provide and more! A washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, beach provisions (chairs, umbrellas, cooler, toys), WiFi, shampoo/conditioner, bath gel,etc. The unit is extremely spacious allowing for maximum R&R.; The location is ideal and provides many other recreational opportunities within walking distance. Dennis and Cheryl are very responsive and accommodating -- the perfect hosts. We would definitely recommend this unit to our friends and family. Thank you Dennis, Cheryl and Shawn for a wonderful weekend getaway!
A perfect place for the vacation
Finn Joergensen from Denmark on 08/02/2012 said:
A overwhelming friendliness from the community residents and the site manager. The home J3 was clean and one of the more well placed homes regarding ocean view and access to pool area. It is quiet and everything is easy to use right away. Best recommendations.
What a Great Time!
Randy from Roseville, CA on 07/15/2012 said:
I have been to Kona many times and choose to return to Na Hale O Keauhou for many reasons - location and price being the main ones. I have 3 kids and the comfort of a condo with the full kitchen and washer/dryer are priceless! Pack light and enjoy the vacation. The owners of this unit J-3 were very accomodating and the whole process was very easy. The unit is well-appointed and we enjoyed the gas BBQ on the patio. Very close to the beach, golf course and supermarket. Decent pool and workout gym. We plan on returning!
Nice location but several maintenance and cleanliness issues
Oregon Ironman from Tigard, OR on 10/16/2010 said:
The condo was in a very nice location, close to shopping and a very good snorkel beach. However, the condo was in pretty poor condition when we arrived. First, the condo was overrun with sugar ants due to a container of sugar left on the counter. Even after Terminex came we still had a significant amount of ants throughout the condo. Also, the sliding glass door latch in the living room was broken and would never lock and one side of the blinds on the sliding glass door was broken. The vents and fans were covered in a thick layer of dust so bad that we couldn't keep them on because of all the dust that filled the room. In addition, the refrigerator door handle came off, which we fixed, and the upstairs master bedroom toilet was broken when we arrived, which we also fixed. The toilet in the second bathroom upstairs also constantly ran throughout our stay.

I had a very good time ! The unit j-3, everything is clean and　comfortable. Pool is very close. So I could enjoy all the day until the night! Especially,　I want to say thank you to the site manager. I am a Japanese, so my English is poor. But he helped us all the time! I will go back to this wonderful condo nest year! Thank you(^^♪
ACC from Austin, TX on 10/21/2013 said:
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with this rental. It has a great view, the condition was excellent and it had lots of extra stuff. The location is close to everything but does require a dive to get to the beach.
So much better than a Motel/Hotel
KarlieK from Bellingham, Wa on 09/16/2013 said:
If you are looking into staying at least a week, this is the way to go. We felt so much more comfortable in this town home than any other hotel/motel we have ever stayed in. It just gives you an "at home" feeling. We were impressed with the security and quietness of the environment, it is not too close to the town but not too far away either. It was perfect and we will definitely be staying here for our future annual trips to Kona for the Queen Liliuokalani Outrigger races. Thank you for opening your town home to us, we look forward to future visits :)
Great all around
Traveling Family from London, UK on 05/11/2013 said:
Having rented both houses and condos up and down the Kona Coast during the past 10 years, we found L-6 at Na Hale O Keauhou as the best, bar none, overall. The 3 bedroom unit is exceedingly spacious, exceptionally clean and was perfect for our group of 5. The location is ideal, being a very short drive or pleasant walk to fine snorkeling at Keauhou Bay and situated seconds from the modern Keauhou Shopping Center with its outstanding farmers market, Kona Stories Bookstore and IGa supermarket. Not to mention Sam Choy's restaurant just above the complex. There are a lot of units for rent at Na Hale O Keauhou but we were happy that we choose L-6 as it has uninterrupted vies of the ocean and landscaping, a number of other units look over roads or parking lots. The pool is also a minutes walk away up a small hill. Everything a family could need is provided in this new unit: We took the boogie boards and towels out everyday and grilled several nights on the lanai. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and bathrooms hotel-like. Everything here works. We will absolutely be back. We stayed during 'Spring Break' just after Easter yet the value was still amazing, frankly, the owners should charge more. The only concern during our entire week-long stay was the rather fastidious and particular older neighbor who reminded us frequently to strictly abide by the condo rules: no towels on lanai, no noise before 8am, etc. As long as you don't plan on any wild parties or late nights, you'll be fine. We will certainly be back, hopefully many times.
A great home base to explore Big Island
Rod from Montreal, Canada on 03/12/2013 said:
The booking process was efficient and painless, after providing our credit card information on a secure server were emailed all the required information including codes to the front gate and to the lockbox containing the key. The property is located in a gated community on the hillside overlooking Kona with easy access to the main highway, and provides great views of the ocean from the lanai. The grounds are quiet, well kept, and include a pool and fitness centre. The unit itself is a spacious 3 bedroom/3bathroom town home of recent construction that has been very well maintained, and has a fully functional modern kitchen. We appreciated the guestbook which provided detailed information on the unit as well local shopping and restaurants. Useful items such as beach towels and chairs were also available. We have rented several houses over the last few years in different hawaiian islands and this has been the best experience so far.
Great condo, great location, great management
Kosue from Los Angeles on 01/03/2013 said:
14 members of my extended family decided to spend Christmas week on the big island of Hawaii. We booked 3 condos in the complex, with 5 of us (including me) in this unit. We booked through Vrbo which I found through Tripadvisor (my most favorite travel website). It was very easy to book, and the management was wonderful to work with from the beginning, through completing the booking, arriving in Hawaii and following up afterwards. The unit configurations differ somewhat throughout the complex. This united worked well for my family because it had a separate large bedroom and private bath downstairs, with 2 other bedrooms (each with private bath) upstairs. The location of this condo was very good -- a short walk to the excellent pool and jacuzzi. And the complex is a short walk to the beach and to a shopping complex that has several excellent restaurants. This condo was immaculately clean when we arrive and really well equipped. We cooked several meals at home and found all the pans, utensils, dishes, etc. that we needed. I highly recommend this management company, this complex and this unit in particular.
Claire from Florida on 05/26/2012 said:
This condo was clean, spacious, quiet and had a fantastic view. Sitting on the lanai watching the sunset was the most relaxing experience. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The beach towels and beach equipment were great. We love the snorkling beach down the road and being able to walk to the shopping center around the corner was convenient as well. For six adults the price was unbeatable.
A relaxing vacation.
Gary from Ridgefield, WA on 04/08/2012 said:
The condo was generously furnished with everything needed for guests. Instructions were clearly stated. Cleaning service was fast and efficient. The pool and gym made the experience complete. The progressive ongoing rental communications were outstanding.
Wonderful Na Hale O Condo
Dick & Alice from Minneapolis, Mn on 03/21/2012 said:
Our experience in L6 at NaHaleO was wonderful. This condo is beautiful, clean, well kept, comfortable and equipped with everything you would need for a great vacation. Thank you Kris for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful island home. We hope to be back next year. Dick & Alice
Fantastic stay, very comfortable, and absolutely enjoyable.
Bill from Anchorage, Alaska on 12/27/2011 said:
Condo, furnishings, and amenities were first class. The appliances and property are well maintained and very comfortable. Open screened ventilation was more than adequate to keep the rooms comforatble without using the airconditioner and barbeque was very handy versus going to the pool to use the community grill. Great location and easy walking to Keauhou shopping center or downtown Kailua-Kona. Gated facility provided an additional level of comfort and property manager checked several times to make sure everything was okay. Neighbors in L-5 are nice and we enjoyed visiting with them, but she criticized several of the younger people at the pool for being to noisey (not that bad). She tends to view the Na Hale O Keauhou as a retirement community versus vacation destination.
Santa Cruz from Santa Cruz, Ca. on 11/20/2011 said:
This condo has everything you will possibly need. I could not believe what the kitchen contained. It had everything that I needed to cook plus more. It was like cooking at home. Highly recommend this condo.
Bill from Las Vegas, NV on 08/13/2011 said:
We loved the condo! It was very clean and the furnishings were lovely. Everything was provided to make our stay extremely comfortable and the view off the back patio was awesome!
The very best!
San Jose, CA from San Jose, CA on 08/12/2011 said:
This is the third year in a row that we have stayed at Na Hale O Keauhou, and L-6 has been the best townhouse so far! We like the 3 bedroom, 3 bath model with one of the bedrooms downstairs as that provides privacy, especially if there are two families. We enjoyed the beach equipment, especially the chairs, towels and boogie boards! The kitchen is well-equipped and the barbecue grill is a plus. After traveling to the Big Island for several years, Na Hale O Keauhou has been a great find because of its location, its amenities and all of the comforts of home! Kris and her property manager were very accomodating and great to work with, and we will be back at L-6 next year!
Oasis in Keauhou
LotusRapper from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on 07/04/2011 said:
We stayed in Keauhou in mid-May, 2011. After considerable research online, we booked Na Hale O Keauhou for its new-ness and overall appeal. And we were not disappointed !! From the moment we stepped into L-6 we felt at home, and at ease. The estate, and the condo, are immaculately maintained. Small details throughout the townhome served as reminders to the owners' efforts in making their guests feel welcomed, relaxed and pampered. We spent numerous hours on the lanai, enjoying BBQ meals over the serene views while the gentle sea breeze took away the stresses of our urban life. The pool was exceptional, especially in the way it's perched atop the estate overlooking the island. Our day of departure was indeed a sad one. Our big thanks to the owners of L6 and the staff of Na Hale O Keauhou in making our Kona vacation such a successful and memorable one. We will definitely be back here (L6) sometime again. Mahalo nui loa and aloha !
5 stars. What a delight!
Paul from White Salmon, WA on 06/30/2011 said:
We stayed 1 week in unit L6 at Na Hale O Keauhou - 1 old couple plus an unrelated young couple, with a 5 year old boy. Privacy in the unit was great. The unit is spacious, comfortable, well appointed, and beautiful. The service was superb: Brand new fridge quit cooling; Alan had it fixed in less than 24 hours. We ran out of propane; Alan brought a replacement promptly. We loved the walkability - groceries, mall, state park, bus stop. There was no noise from alii Drive. We used and appreciated the beach equipment, all in working order. We enjoyed daily dips in the large, well-maintained pool and hot tub. The evening view, the quiet, and the landscaping all insured a wonderful stay. We recommend L6 with no reservations.
Fabulous Condo with all the comforts of home
Scott DePatie from Lacombe , Alberta , Canada on 04/13/2011 said:
My Family stayed in Condo L6 from March 30 to april 7th. The condo is absolutly georgous with a great view ! It has everything you need for a great vacation in Hawaii , right down to the boogy boards, and beach towels for the beach. Located just far enough away from the all the hussle and bustle of the boardwalk , and yet close enough to a great little shopping center with all the amenities, and great restaurants you would need . The pool area in the complex is very clean , and well maintained .the owner (Kris was very helpfull, and went above , and beyond when it came to suggesting great places to go , and things to do.We ended up requireing a late check out because our flight didn't leave until 9:30 in the evening , and after chatting with Kris , this was not a problem at all. We will deffinatly be booking the L6 unit again for our next vacation . Thanks agin Kriss for letting our family share your beautiful home .
What a wonderful place to stay!
The Lohr Family from San Diego on 03/26/2011 said:
We booked our stay in L6 and had contact with Kris (owner) several times before we left. She was extremely helpful in giving tips and information about the area. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the condition of the condo. It was comfortably decorated and fully stocked with anything we could need. (We love the reclining orange chairs in the living room!) The property is less than 5 minutes walking to a major shopping center, including restaurants, drug store, urgent care, and the us Post Office. We were a ten minute walk to the beach. The location was really great! We watched many beautiful Kona sunsets and enjoyed many breakfasts from the lanai. The grass area outside was perfect for our daughter to run and play, while we sat on the lanai. We have already recommended this condo to family that lives on the island. They came to have dinner with us and were so impressed by how clean, comfortable and how much it felt like home. This condo really lends to entertaining. I cannot say enough good things about Kris and the condo. We will be back!
Great condo, great location
Steve C. from Portland, OR on 10/21/2013 said:
I'd stayed in the Na Hale O Keauhou complex before, but this was the first time in M-1. It was another great experience. The master and the 2nd BR upstairs was the perfect floor plan for me, my wife and 2 kids, and we had friends staying downstairs for a couple nights. The condo was clean and had a great kitchen with everything we needed to regularly prepare meals. We love this location as it is close enough to Kailua-Kona for an easy trip into town, but far enough away that we feel like we're away from it all. The lanai in the master overlooks the neighbors, which is the only drawback we found to this unit. Otherwise...great, and would recommend.
Shared privacy in Kona
Konawalker13 from Kelowna on 02/06/2013 said:
The unit was perfect for us, with 3 ensuite bedrooms for our 3 couples. The kitchen and other shared rooms accommodated us easily, and we could meet or go our separate ways with ease. We ate together on the lanai, looking out at the gorgeous Kona waters. The Keauhou shopping centre supplied most of our needs, often by strolling up to it as necessary. The best fish-watching beach in Kona was only a 10-minute walk away (parking there is sometimes difficult.) A couple of the rules of the condo puzzled us, such as not being allowed to dry our swimming gear on the lanai. Some of the furniture was not very comfortable for us oldsters. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in unit M-1.
Great place to stay in Kailua Kona
A Minnesota visitor from Woodbury, MN on 01/18/2013 said:
Nice, well maintained condo near KTa store and shopping center. Liked staying here, very peaceful, felt like home plus was very quiet at night. Nice complex. Will definitely return. The pictures show good details of what you can expect.
Rachel from Canada on 05/01/2012 said:
We rented this rental for the barbeques and comfort of 8 people. Unfortunately there was no barbeque at the rental had to go to the pool for that. The tank ran out the second week we were there and had to throw everything in the oven as no mgr on site. Very inconvenient. The sofa had so many feathers coming out it was unsanitary. The worst part of this rental was the beds. We were promised two doubles which was what we needed. One of them turned out to be a futon which my 79 year old mother ended up getting. The top of bed slipped to the side one way or another and was very uncomfortable. Needless to say my children ended up sleeping on the sofa and or floor so that grandma could get the better bed and stop complaining. Very stressful for the whole family. Very disappointing.
Na Hale is a community with private Town homes. There is an on-site manager that has daytime hours with an office next to the pool, Jacuzzi and BBQ common area. Our home has its own private manager available for emergencies. His contact information is posted in our home.
Our home offers sleeping accommodations for 8 people as stated in our description. The upstairs master bed room and second bedroom each have king size beds. The third bedroom, downstairs, has 2 queen bed (not the smaller double beds). We set up our rooms this way to comfortably accommodate a family up to 8 people. More than 8 guest are not allowed, and would mean quests sleeping on sofas and floors. Our sofa in the living room is a Down Feather filled sofa and chaise. It does lose feathers occasionally. It is a sofa and not meant for sleeping quests. We are very proud of our home in Kona, as it is our home as well, not just a rental. We have tried our best to create a welcoming and relaxing environment for all. We wish you the best in the future.

Room for all!
Denise K. from Palmer, Alaska on 01/17/2012 said:
We own a condo in this complex, but needed a few nights in another unit until ours came available. Naturally, I compared our set-up with that of M-1 and was pleasantly surprised. Six adults fit very comfortably in this spacious, nicely decorated unit and it was very clean. I was particularly pleased to have actual china, and a glass lemonade dispenser in the kitchen as we held a small reception at the condo following a wedding vow renewal ceremony for our 25th anniversary. Check-in and check-out were very smooth, and ample supplies of towels, soaps and trash bags were available. I will recommend this unit to our friends for those times we wish to travel together. Mahalo!
A great get-a-way in Kona.
Woody from Hilo, Hawaii on 02/11/2011 said:
My family had a mini-work/vacation on-island. Did some work but relaxed most of the time. The unit was spacious, well furnished and very comfortable. The ocean is across the street or a short drive and a small shopping area neighboring the site made it very convenient. A definite yes! recommendation for a place to stay while enjoying the Kona area.
Kathleen from Edgewood, WA on 01/27/2011 said:
This condo lived up to the photos and reviews that I found on the internet. It was very well furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen had all the supplies we needed for preparing meals. We really enjoyed our stay in M1 and would recommend it to our friends!
Home away from Home
Terry from Fargo, ND on 01/20/2011 said:
We really enjoyed our stay in Hawaii. We appreciate the family that so kindly let us rent their home and for Chuck who was prompt in answering our questions and helpful to us in making our stay a fabulous one. The townhome was perfect for us and is in a beautiful area with the pool and barbecue area very close to us and every morning and night able to wake up looking out our lanai to see the ocean and sunset. The townhome also was decorated wonderfully and was great having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms since they were 7 of us. We were very close to most everything we needed - groceries, snorkeling, church and downtown. When we did travel to see more of the Island it was so beautiful along the way, we did not mind the length of time it took to get there. We hope to come back someday with our family and be reassured we will tell other people about our stay.
Our experience at M-1 was fabulous!
G.Hong from Boston on 12/03/2010 said:
We had a great time staying at this updated, clean, and friendly place where we had a nice far view of the peaceful ocean. The place is nicely located not too far, within 5-20 minutes from many beaches, snorkeling places, shops, family activities, and restaurants. Highly recommended for those of you who are looking for a nice place to stay for your family, up to 8 people!

One never quite knows what to expect when all of the arrangements are made "nearly sight unseen" via the internet. However, for this property from the pictures, to the location, to the cleanliness, to the spaciousness, to the amenities, to the great folks as aloha Condos, the stay was exceptional. The process to ck in and out, flawless. The owners of this property have gone to great lengths to assure a great and comfortable stay. We really enjoyed this property as well as the experience of making the booking.
FABULOUS VACATION UNIT M1 from QUEENS .NY on 09/08/2010 said:
The unit m1 was fabulous,magnificent, awesome. Plenty of space. Everything you would want in a home. Wonderful community pool with jacuzzi. Not a lot of people in the pool which made it seem as if we had it all to ourselves. Nice community bbq grill (Weber) Very clean home and beautifully decorated, just spectacular. We had an amazing vacation. Chuck buser from aloha condos very nice and professional. The home m1 and Big Island were wonderful.
our 2nd time at M1
Rinas family from Mission on 04/22/2010 said:
We rented and came back again this year, as our previous stay was so memorable. First I must say the the location, quiet neighbourhood and close proximity to the grocery store still is a great reason to stay. The unit is exactly as pictured and accomodates any family easily. Our biggest disappointment and huge issue was the general tideness/cleanthiness of the unit when we arrived. The showers/bathrooms were spotty and not clean and the bedding on the beds dirty and smelled like "B.O." I did contact someone, but did not get a reply or call until our maid was due mid week and by this time had cleaned and washed all the bedding myself. In addition, all the wonderful beach stuff that was part of our rental last year, gone!! We ended up purchasing and leaving behind 4 body boards/snorkle masks/beach umbrella and many other things. Along with this, the owners have put a "lock" on the downstairs closet making anyone with luggage or clothing, have to walk upstairs and intrude on other rooms for storage and to hang clothes. Overall, the townhouse has a beautiful view and security for those looking for a safe place to stay. I think the owners need to look at why they are renting and how the changes they have made impact both the experience and comfort. Overall, I would recommend but be aware that if you have issues, they probably will not get addressed.
Jo from London on 01/06/2010 said:
We had a great Xmas break at the villa. It was a beautiful house and the place has been decorated very well. We felt at home straight away (so comfortable that we didn't really want to leave!!) :) The location was also great and easy to find. Would highly recommend the place to our families and friends. Thank you very much.

Great condo in a very nice location
Oregon Ironman from Portland, Oregon on 10/23/2009 said:
Overall this was a very nice condo with plenty of room in a great location off of Alii drive. We really liked the proximity to the beach, downtown Kona, and the shopping center. The amenities in the condo facility including the pool and workout room were also very nice. The only complaint was that the initial cleanliness of the condo was not good. In particular three out of the four beds in the condo had large hair balls in the sheets, almost like they hadn't been cleaned prior to our arrival, or not cleaned very well.
Wonderful relaxing getaway
Lynn from Cleveland, Ohio on 07/27/2009 said:
This lovely condo lived up to its description and pictures. It was very quiet, relaxing and comfortable for our family of 5. The best thing was having all the amenities of home but located in paradise! We would definitely stay here again.
jwhite872 from California on 05/17/2009 said:
This is a fantastic property. The unit itself and the overall property is very well kept and has everything you need to have a totally enjoyable time on the Big Island. The unit is in excellent shape and is very comfortable for five or six people. The unit has an excellent overview of the ocean just about a quarter mile down the hill. It is located close to a nice little shopping center with a supermarket for any food items you would need and just a short drive from several nice little beaches. Kona town is just two or three miles up the road. In all this is a fantastic place for a family to stay and enjoy the many things the Big Island has to offer.
Beautiful property - looks just like photos
charj from Frankfurt, Germany on 04/08/2009 said:
We rented this property for about a week. We have nothing negative to say about it. The apartment is in great condition, it looks exactly like it does in the pictures. It was thoughtfully stocked with everything from condiments to laundry detergent to pool toys for the kids. There is tons of parking and the property is nice and quiet. The location is great, only about 5 - 10 min drive to beaches and around the corner from the shopping center. When we had a question about the air conditioner, someone was there to help us within the hour. We've already recommended this condo to several people and would definitely stay there again if ever in Kona.
Relaxing..Dream... Vacation Family Condo
Rinas family from British Columbia, Canada on 04/02/2009 said:
This amazing condo was "everything" the owner stated. This unit is one of the few in this complex, that has a beautiful view of the ocean, along with close access to the pool/BBQ area. We found it to be very clean, the owner easy to correspond and talk to and the location safe, secure and quiet. The drive from the airport was both non-stressful and directions to easy to follow. The best part.... was the location of a grocery store, post office and drug store right behind, making it easy for grocery shopping or last minute meal planning. Our family (which included our young/adult children) quickly found the best snorkling was just 1 mile down the road, with the "tourist" area of Kona just beyond. We felt that there was nothing we could have needed, even for the beach, and suggest that you really "only" need clothes. We never ran out of towels or bedding, and loved the laundry room on the main floor. Any large family would love this condo as the owner has provided for all ages and all needs, right down to the extra air beds for parents that want their little ones close and DVD movies for all ages. The free internet allowed us to sit on the lanai and plan our days while we drank our morning coffee atching the sun come up. The location is close to the major highway making any activity, coffee farm tour or tourist attraction easy to find. We went to relax and enjoy the sun, away from the hotel type of stay.. and were not dissappointed. This condo is great value for your money and truly a "HOME away from HOME"
Peter from British Columbia on 04/02/2009 said:
This is a wonderfully appointed unit loaded with every amenity possible. If you are looking for resort complete with an events coordinator, pool side bar etc. consider elsewhere as the complex has a residential feel great for those looking for peace and quiet. One small annoyance is that the hot tub is prone to frequent outages due to children playing with the shut off control. Bottom line if you are looking for a place to park and relax in the Kona district you cannot go wrong with this rental unit . Please note if your vacation plans include extensive trips to the north, east or south island attractions the commute times from the Kona district will eventually wear you out. Last -Aloha Condos were great to deal with and I would highly recommend others to their rental web site.
Seattle Duo from Seattle, WA on 11/26/2013 said:
The condo exceeded our expectations and provided comfort and convenience in every way. The owners of the condo were very thoughtful in terms of the amenities provided in the unit. Very quiet, great view, convenient to grocery, shopping.
Dan Ashworth from North Attleboro, MA on 10/18/2013 said:
I have been to Kona for the Ironman World Championships for the last 8 years and finding a nice place to stay has always been a challenge because most of the condo's and resorts are older and very dated. We rented this unit because we had friends staying there last year and we were very impressed. The unit is modern, very clean and comfortable. The sunsets are amazing as well. It is a little drive from town but once you get the lay of the land and figure out not to Drive down alii Drive and take the Kuakini Highway to town it really takes no time at all! We are all booked for our 2014 trip to Ironman staying in this same unit! Thanks to the owners for keeping it clean, modern and affordable!
A Beautiful and Quiet Rental With a Wonderful View !!
RoBoyer from Newark, CA on 08/15/2013 said:
We were looking for a nice, secure, quiet rental with a pool for our 4 year old daughter to play in. The M-4 unit met all of our family needs! So here is our breakdown: pros - nice newer furniture, comfortable beds, fast reliable internet access, a great pool, great kitchen amenities, close to KTa grocery store, quiet and relaxing, wonderful ocean view. Cons - loud washer/dryer, pull-chain adjustments on ceiling fans were awkward and didn't seem to work at times. The cons would not prevent us from booking this condo again, as we really loved it overall!!
Thanks for your review and feedback about the ceiling fans. We just replaced all the pull chains on the ceiling fans/lights with double wall switches that let you operate the light and fan independently from the wall. It's so much better.
Thanks for alerting us to this issue.
The washer and dryer have been leveled and shouldn't be an issue.

Karin from Sonoma County on 06/09/2013 said:
Absolutely beautiful, comfortable, quiet, beautiful view, clean and everything we could have hoped for in a rental. We had stayed in this condominium complex years ago and loved it and decided to rent another one. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. I slept better than I have in years. The condo complex has a pool, which was not crowded, hot tub, kids pool, BBQ area and gym which we used every day. It had everything we needed to feel like we were home. It had the basics you need when you are on vacation, towels, beach items, reusable grocery bags, etc. Dream vacation for us.
It exceeded our expectations, it was fantastic.
Leticia from Santa Barbara, CA on 04/25/2013 said:
We spent a fabulous we in Kona and the condo had everything we needed and so much more, it was the best. Pamela, the owner made the booking process easy and her clear and concise emails with instructions and directions on what to do once we arrived were so great. Thank you for contributing to our wonderful holiday.
Tebay from Cordova, Alaska live in Anchorage now on 04/03/2013 said:
Na Hale O Keauhou (The House of New Beginnings)---Really enjoyed this place. We had unit M-4 for a month and C-2 for seven days (There were ten of us for a while so we needed more than one unit, including two children [8 &10] ). Have been to the Hawaiian Islands dozens of times over the last 43 years. M-4 is the nicest condo we have ever experienced, tastefully furnished and finished. This clean unit has a huge living room area (approx. 570 sq. ft), plus a pretty large fully equipped kitchen, 2.5 baths and three upstairs bedrooms. The master bedroom has a very large walk in closet with a huge connected bathroom, two sinks, walk in shower (separate from tub), a tub, a linen closet is located in the large upstairs vestibule. Also, a single car garage (owners allow guests to use the garage but not for vehicles). M-4 is about as quiet/private a condo as one well find. Panoramic views of the ocean from either of the two lanais (The living room lanai is almost 200 sq.ft). Two bedrooms have access to one large lanai on the second floor. Three big cable TVs, free HS Internet, DVD, lanai BBQ grill, etc. The complex is situated so all units have a view of the ocean, some, like M-4, are super. Best sunset views you can imagine from just about anywhere in the complex. It is not directly on the beach as the beach in front is lava rock, but it is up the hill a ways so that it overlooks palm trees and the ocean. It is on the Kona Coast not far from the Captain Cook monument. Ancient Hawaiian sacred grounds account for dozens of acres between the complex and the ocean, meaning no developments to mar the natural beauty, now or in the future. Matter of fact, about a mile to the northwest and on the beach is the old seven story Outrigger Hotel which will soon be demolished and the site turned into a Hawaiian cultural estate. So, even better unrestricted views. Keauhou is a clean and safe neighborhood. One can stroll or run for miles while enjoying beautiful vistas.
Best townhome in the community
SeaGann from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada on 03/09/2013 said:
The photos do no justice to this townhome. We were welcomed with a basket of ripe local fruits, biscuits and chocolates by the property manager and he filled us in on anything we might need to know, plus his contact numbers. The townhome overlooks a garden and a park strip, on a high promontory well above the resort below & across the street - and the ocean is just beyond. The view from the ground floor lanai is edge-to-edge ocean and palm trees. We watched many sunsets and had the rare privilege of experiencing the legendary 'green flash' one evening. The townhome is complete - just add food. There were so many extras, we had little to do but unpack our bags, pull on our bathing suits and go for a swim. Kona is paradise! The townhome is in easy walking distance of the Keahou Shopping Center, which has all the basic services and includes a theater and Thai restaurant. Kahalu'u Beach Park is a scant 15 minute walk away and is a safe and spectacular beach to experience snorkelling - so many species of fish and even some sea turtles (try to not touch - they're wild creatures). The 3 bedrooms are clean & bright - 2 access the upstairs lanai which has even more spectacular views than the main floor. The kitchen is spacious, well-maintained, clean and complete. The 2 1/2 bathrooms are clean and bright. The master bathroom has a big shower and jacuzzi tub in the ensuite, and a walk-in closet. The only limitation I can speak of - the king bed in the master bedroom is lumpy and hard. All other beds were very comfortable - a queen in the 2nd bedroom and 2 single beds in the 3rd bedroom. I would stay in this townhome again - in a heartbeat. It's lovely,and it's in the middle of paradise - the vacation was magic and this home is part of that.
Thanks SeaGann for your kind review.
We were at the condo directly following your stay and based on your feedback we replaced the mattress in the Master bedroom with an Elite Luxury resort mattress.
Thanks for helping us continue to provide a wonderful vacation experience.

Very pleased,well kept and very clean. The moment we walked in, it felt like home.Its close to groceries and a snorkeling beach with 2 or 3 excellent restaurants up the hill.Stayed for a month and it went all too quickly. We ate all our meals on the lanai, great view - great weather - great holiday.
Feels Like Home!

This townhouse is beautifully decorated and the location is incredible. The unit is large and spacious and it feels like home. We have family in Kona and I was able to host a 12 person sit down dinner without a hitch. Everything needed for cooking and entertaining a group this large was there. Our group of 5 found everything in the M-4 townhouse that we needed to live comfortably during our time there. When we went to the beach the towels, chairs, ice chest and beach toys were found in the garage. This place is quite and the sunsets on the Lanai are just beautiful. I have no hesitation recommending a stay in the M-4 townhouse and I hope to return here again myself someday. Do make it up the hill to Sam Choy's for a meal, the food and view's there are fabulous.
Beautiful, excellent location

Beautiful, spacious, townhouse. M-4 is the best location. It is beautifully decorated with so many extras. Larger than we expected, we would definently go back and recommend to all. The pictures don't do it justice! The complex itself is a great location, so close to alii street and Kona beach area, easy to hop on Hwy 11 and drive south or head north to the larger beaches and around to Hilo. It made our Hawaii vacation extra special!
Beautiful new townhome!

M-4 was the best location at Na Hale O Keauhou! It was large, private, well decorated and had a nice private lanai with a bbq. It was basecamp for all of our activities, including, deep sea fishing, night snorkeling with the manta rays, visiting the volocano park, seeing the observatory, and just swimming at the beautiful beaches. I would suggest dining at Jackie Reys, and breakfast at Sam Choy's, right up behind the townhomes.
A home in Paradise
Our Kona Home from Edmonton on 04/13/2012 said:
From the start, booking this condo was easy and I felt welcome and confident that everything was being looked after. We were amazed at how beautiful, spacious, and inviting the condo was. We immediately felt at home. The condo had everything we needed to live comfortably to the 10 days we were there. The location was incredible. Close to the heart of Kona; the beaches, shops, running trails, golf course and restaurants yet removed and quiet. The patio was a perfect place to BBQ, sit back and watch the sunset over the water every evening. There is a great pool/hot tub and work out room within a 1 minute walk. The pictures do not begin to do it justice. We loved it here and will be returning over and over again! Thanks for a great vacation.
Peaceful retreat in the middle of town.

Location of this condo allows easy access to downtown eating/shopping as well as quick to get to main road Queen K. for travel around the rest of the island. Close to grocery and excellent snorkelling. Condo is well furnished with dishes and towels. No other condos available on any of the Hawaiian islands w/3bdrm and this nice. Best deal around. Makes you feel at home while on vacation, so relaxing. View from downstairs Lanai is of 'wildlife' area in front of condo, then ocean; no parking lot or dumpster to view as from other condos or hotels. Condos are quiet at night too. Will be returning!
Townhome in Paradise

Na Hale O Keauhou Townhome M-4 was a wonderful place to spend 7 days in Kona. Lots of convience's close by. It was the best townhome rental we have had to date. The fully equipted kitchen and Barbque grill made eating on the Lanai as easy as eating at home. We'll definitely see you again next year.
