I still feel lucky I could stay in Robert's Condo. It was on a hill and the view was gorgeous. it was close to a good mall and the best beach in town was just 2 minuites drive. Rooms are charming and Robert furnished them with nice pieces. He sincerely gave us all the good and bad information about our stay, so we stayed there without any disappointment or surprise which is very important on a trip with small children.

Our stay at Hale Nanealoa was amazing. Robert was so wonderful and thorough in all his communication with us. The unit itself is beautifully decorated and has everything you will need for your stay. It is immediately below Keauhou shopping center, literally within walking distance. Everything is neat as a pin! The beds were super comfortable to sleep in. Even though it was hot while we were there, we didn't need the air con as we could utilize the ocean and mountain breezes. It is super close to the pool area. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the staff are very friendly. The gym area isn't huge, but it worked very well for my husband - who is a competitive body builder. I've already recommended this unit to friends who are planning a trip to Kona next year. You will be very pleased with your stay at Hale Nanealoa!

Over the years we have stayed in vacation homes, hotels, motels, park concessions but this stay was memorable. We really loved staying here in your condo â the surroundings were beautiful, the home is tastefully decorated, it has all the stuff that one would need for a great vacation on an island (snorkeling equipment, cool boxes, beach towels, chairs ..). We were welcomed with a gift hamper consisting of exotic tropical fruits â what a delight it was to taste the large organic avocado! Thanks once again,

The ocean views were perfect. We really enjoyed having use of nice quality snorkel equipment and the kitchen had a great selection of dishes, spices and appliances -- including a waffle iron. My only regret is that the Master had a queen sized bed -- but that's what I'm used to. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this unit again.

Located just a few minutes walk to Kahaluu Beach Park, a great snorkeling beach. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance and a short drive will take you to the historic village of Kailua-Kona, where many more shops, restaurants, large farmers market and historic sites may be enjoyed.

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.
We were unaware of the problem with the air conditioner. Upon learning it was not producing cool air, we had it fixed. It is now working properly. We will refund the A/C charge to the reviewer who brought the problem to our attention.

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!!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

We have spent two fantastic weeks in the house in Na Hale O'Keauhou! I will for sure come back there again! Our vacation there is one of the greatest memories I have. I am very grateful to the owners of this wonderful house for their invitation to spend our vacation there!

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.
