The best at Kanaloa!
I wanted to reach out and say 'thank you' for the great stay (our second at Kanaloa) we had at your place last month! As always, your condo shines above the rest! We have very much grown to appreciate and enjoy what a great place... more you have. The weather was amazing during our stay, and we've enjoyed becoming comfortable with the area and all it has to offer that end of town (we even walked over to the Keauhou beach, which we'd never done before because the pools on property are go great)! We are already starting to look at next year, and hope to be able to return again soon! Thank you as well for your great communication, flexibility, and care that you show to your Hawaiian home. Kanaloa at Kona is the gold standard we compare all others to, and few can! less

Love everything about the condo. It was well equipped and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay again. The sunset view from the lanai was spectacular!
— Gena, Stayed 07/02/2022
This is the second time we have stayed in the condo in the past two years. Not only is the location perfect, the condo is spectacular. We felt truly comfortable in the condo, had lots of space for 3 of us, and an amazing view... more of the golf course and ocean. The sunsets were amazing. less
— Cari Rodgers, Stayed 06/27/2022
Great location. Definitely recommended
Best sunset view over the balcony. Strongly recommend for stay at Kona.

Our First Stay in 1502
The unit was one of the best ones in the resort (we have stayed in 3 other units and at the resort many different times). It was clean, decorated "Hawaiian Style" (but more comfortable furniture), the unit has been updated and everything was in great... more condition, everything we needed was available. The kitchen was well equipped, with supplies, pots and pans, and many cooking essentials. Also there was a lot of outdoor equipment, including masks, fins, and chairs. We are getting lazy and did not use these items. Sitting on the Lanai and watching the ocean and golf course was just the right activity for us! When we arrived, there was a basket of fresh fruit, some juices and water. I love avocados, and I can truly say that I have never seen one as big as the one that was left for us. It really was about the size of a small football! Also the owners could not have been more gracious working with us throughout the pandemic mess. This trip was booked over 2 years ago, and they moved the dates for us twice. We will definitely try to rebook 1502 in the future. Aloha, Craig and Sue less

The pictures of this place doesn’t do it justice. Check in and check out was a breeze. I got a confirmation email with clear and precise direction. Communication with the on island staff was immediate when I had a question about the air conditioning. The... more entire unit is very spacious and comfortable. It’s tastefully decorated and brings a little bit of the islands indoors. Fully stocked kitchen makes it almost impossible not to cook your favorite meals. It’s super clean and well taken care of. We didn’t get to use any of the beach stuff but that was well stocked too. Coolers , beach chairs, mats and even snorkeling gear! I’ve stayed at a lot of rentals and this one by far had everything to make you feel right at home. Even board games and playing cards… so awesome. The view is beautiful and you not only get great sunset and ocean views but also a view of the golf course for golf enthusiasts. Side note: there was fruiting papaya tree and a healthy rosemary bush right outside. We had fresh papaya and got to use some of that rosemary in our meals. This is my new favorite place to stay in Kona. Will definitely stay again less

Great property and location
Great location and the unit itself was superb and well stocked for beach time. However, at the time of our visit, 10/31/21-11/4/21, there was significant construction going thought out the complex with heavy construction equipment and noise of which I was never made aware of-that... more was disappointing. less
— Irene Green, Stayed 11/09/2021
Smooth, relaxing, beautiful stay
The stay was great, directions for things were clear, accessible, and easily found. The hosts were responsive but we hardly needed to bother them during our stay. Everything just went so smoothly. The bed is comfortable, everything felt clean, the kitchen was extremely well stocked,... more the view is great, and the condo is tastefully decorated. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. less
— Jannice, Stayed 10/10/2021
Everything you could want from a vacation rental! Clean, comfortable, fully stocked with necessary and useful extra items. Easy check-in/checkout, responsive owner, clean and secure community. A home run, will be looking for the same place to be available when we come back.
— Darren, Stayed 09/17/2021
A view of paradise
A beautifully appointed 2BR condo with a spectacular view of the ocean and sunset, and overlooking the golf course green. Has EVERYTHING you need to feel pampered and also very much at home. I loved cooking here! Super easy to book. Rated 4 stars instead... more of 5 only because of noise from the upstairs condo during our stay, some related to construction. less
— Carol, Stayed 06/26/2021
Amazing Big Island vacation!
We've rented places all over the world, and Mindy's condo was BY FAR the nicest we've ever stayed in! We loved seeing all her artwork in the unit. The renovations/upgrades to the place are tasteful, well done, and they made us feel right at home.... more The bed was super comfortable, the double headed shower was amazing, and the kitchen has absolutely everything any chef would ever want! The check-in and check-out process easy, and the people working at the property were all super friendly. It didn't rain much while we were there, but having the reserved covered parking was a very nice amenity as it seemed crowded during our stay. We spent many nights just sitting on the lanai with a cool drink in hand watching the sunset. We ate out a few times, but with how nice the kitchen is, and how close the KTA is to get groceries, right here was the place we wanted to be! The grounds and pools at Kanaloa are awesome, especially the Ocean Pool! Everything is very well kept and very presentable. You will have an amazing stay here too! less

For a Great Vacation, Stay in Unit #1502
This is a beautiful and comfortable unit. This condo had everything we needed to enjoy our stay on the Big Island. We were welcomed with a beautiful basket of fruit and snacks! The kitchen is fully furnished, including coffee maker and gold filter, wine bottle... more opener, freezer packers for a portable picnic lunch, and a few basic seasonings too. Paper towels are provided also. The bathrooms have enough large towels. The shower heads have good water pressure. The shower has shampoo, cream rinse and body wash available. The beds and pillows are comfortable for sleeping too! We enjoyed the ocean and golf course view from the covered lanai and ate our meals out there, even when it was raining. We appreciated the owners providing beach towels, chairs, umbrella, and even snorkel gear for use, if desired. It is a short drive to the shopping center where a grocery store, ice cream shop, and coffee are located. The pictures and description of this unit and condo complex are accurate. Everything was as expected. Instructions were clear and text messages were timely reminders too. This is a great place to stay during your vacation. less

Excellent Condo - Met or Exceeded our Expecations
The condo was perfect. We loved overlooking the golf course to the ocean. We enjoyed the manicured grounds of the golf course, the swaying palm trees and the waves crashing up on the rocks. Every evening we were home, we took the chairs that were... more stocked in the closet, along with our cocktails, out to the golf course to watch the sunset. Just be sure to stay at least 45 minutes after the sun dips below the horizon, because that's when the color really develops. The condo was updated, well decorated and roomy. We spent a lot of time on the lanai enjoying the view. The closet is stocked full of chairs, snorkeling gear, coolers, boogie boards, etc - everything we needed. The fruit basket was especially appreciated because we arrived late and hungry - so nice to have those snacks! There's not much within walking distance, but the location is still good. The night manta-ray tours are just around the corner. There is excellent snorkeling within a short drive. Downtown Kona a short drive away. We would definitely stay here again! less

1502 - Perfect in Everyway
Condo 1502 at the Kanaloa at Kona was amazing. It is everything advertised and more. This was our third year there, and what a surprise when we walked into remodeled condominium. It has always been wonderful, but now it is totally updated. We never have... more a problem with any of the equipment or facilities. Along with the great facilities we are treated to a beautiful view of the golf course and the water. What more could you ask for? less
— Maxine, Stayed 11/12/2019
We were very impressed with the detailed online photos and information posted when we booked unit 1502. The ocean view and wave sounds on the lanai were even better than the pictures. Every evening the ocean sunset was stunning. The condo was clean and comfortable... more with quality furnishings. We had every convenience we needed. We were glad we opted for the air conditioning upgrade. There was a nice fruit basket gift waiting when we arrived. We appreciated use of the beach items such as chairs and umbrellas . The covered parking spot for the unit was not available because of some reconstruction so we had to load and unload a little further from the unit. We had complete quiet the first 9 days of our stay . After that 2 families with children checked in above us . We were instantly impacted from noise above inside and out .We consequently made the choice to change our flight and left a day early. The owner was very helpful regarding any questions we had all through the rental experience. The Kanaloa Condo 1502 was very attractive and convenient and the grounds are beautiful. less
— Greg L., Stayed 06/04/2019
This condo is exceptional. It’s Beautifully decorated and comfortable. Ocean and golf course view from the lanai. Ground floor unit. Everything has been upgraded. The kitchen Is set up to be used. New appliances all around. We watched the sunset every evening from the lanai.... more Close to groceries and restaurants. Away from Kona noise. Hope to stay here again. less
— Janet, Stayed 05/20/2019
Thanks for the welcome basket! We enjoyed our stay & the condo was well equipped. Only thing missing was a coffee packet for our first morning. We used the beach chairs, coolers & snorkel gear. Highly recommend.
— Karen, Stayed 02/12/2019
Very spacious, well appointed unit. We had everything we needed for the beach, pool, cooking etc. and this was greatly appreciated! Convenient location and owner easy to work with. Highly recommend.
— Sue Counihan, Stayed 01/14/2019
Very Comfortable Condo
This condo was clean, beautiful and very well stocked. There were lovely beach/snorkeling toys and chairs. Everything was very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would definitely come back again and recommend to my friends!
— linda, Stayed 12/11/2018
Perfect location, gorgeous view
The condo was great. Very clean, spacious and had everything you need for some fun in the sun. The outdoor gear, beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and snorkel gear was great to have and we used them all a lot. The view off the lanai... more of the ocean sunsets was incredible. My son and husband enjoyed the adjoining golf course a few times and it was great to sit outside and watch as they came through and played the 12th hole. We had great fun at the ocean side pool as well as fishing off the dock at the nearby bay. All in all it was a wonderful place to call our home base for our vacation. My one and only complaint would be about the wifi. It cut out almost everyday, usually in the evening while we were watching Netflix or trying to call back home to check on our place. It did get a little frustrating and I’m not looking forward to my cell bill as we were using data a majority of our stay. Other than that our stay was perfect less
— Kathy, Stayed 10/28/2018
Excellent accommodations, beats expectations!!
Very impressed with the accommodations at Kanaloa and condo unit#1502. All the pictures posted regarding this condo are accurate. The golf/ocean view was spectacular and my wife enjoyed taking pictures from it every morning and evening. All of the rooms were impeccably clean. Room towels... more and beach towels provided and the kitchen was pretty much fully stocked with all the utensils and basic ingredients for cooking. Especially appreciated was the detailed guide on the various snorkeling sites around the island as well as the available snorkeling gear for all of us. Two minor issues: the kitchen cabinets are a bit dated, but fully functional. The thermostat could not be controlled lower than 74 degrees Fahrenheit as I would have liked it to be just a bit cooler. Aside from the two minor issues, we had no issues whatsoever. Will recommend this location/condo to friends and family who wants an relaxing vacation and location that is close to everything. less
— charlie, Stayed 09/07/2018
This condo was amazing!!!
This condo was definitely everything we wanted and more. The location is perfect not directly in town but just a short drive to get there. It was very clean and was stocked with anything we needed. From cleaning supplies to beach necessities. We truly had... more everything in the condo to enjoy our stay on the island. They have a lot of personal touches making it feel very homey. The view from the lanai was amazing. We were able to see dolphins swimming by from there. Only recommendation for the condo would be to have a guest journal included. It’s always nice to be able to read suggestions and advice from prior guests. The staff at the condos were very friendly and helpful. I recommend stopping and talking to them the first day you arrive. They will give you a welcome package that included a discount card for places such as restaraunts shopping excursions and more around the island. You can book your excursions there for a considerable discount (you do have to sit through a 2 hour time share spill for Wyndham Resorts but can be done at your leisure) I would also recommend doing your shopping at the local Costco the prices are far better than the grocery stores. Honestly the best family vacation we’ve had this far and will definitely book this condo again in the future. less
— Vanessa, Stayed 08/27/2018
We had a great time at the Condo! The welcome fruit basket was wonderful since arrived very late and were a little hungry. We were pleasantly surprised by all the beach equipment available. Chairs, sun umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment and the quality of the... more items. No cheap stuff here. Our beach time was awesome because of it. The lanai was awesome for morning breakfast. The condo was beautiful. Light and airy and everything was very comfortable. Anybody considering the Kona area would love this condo. Thanks for making our stay so wonderful. We would of loved to spend more time at the condo but we were only on the Big Island for 3 days and had much to explore. less
— Linda, Stayed 08/03/2018
We loved our stay at this condo. It was lovely and comfortable inside, had a well equipped kitchen, gorgeous ocean views from the lanai, and Mindy was very attentive as a host. The ocean side pool was a treat as well. Great location, just outside... more of the traffic and bustle of Kona. less
— Colleen, Stayed 07/09/2018
Beautiful Condo in Kona
We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo overlooking the 12th tee and the ocean. The condo had everything one would need on vacation--kitchen was well stocked, snorkel gear, cooler, towels, beach chairs, bath items, etc. The decorations and artwork are lovely and... more you just felt at home as soon as you walked in. There was even a welcome basket of Hawaiian fruit and goodies on the counter. The owners have all information, guide books, directions and numbers available. The complex pools and tennis courts are close to the condo. Overall, a great place and we hope to return soon again. less
— Regina, Stayed 07/05/2018
Perfect Condo in Perfect Location
We stayed at 1502 for 8 nights in June. The location was excellent for enjoying the Kona side of the island. Kahaluu snorkeling is just a 5 minute drive away. The Keauhou Bay where we did a Manta Ray swim is even closer. Also there... more is a KTA grocery very close by and other shopping. The condo has all the comforts of home, and all the toys and accessories you need for playing outside. The kitchen is very well stocked, and there were some condiments in the refrigerator and spices in the pantry. The condo is located on the bottom floor, with a view of the waves crashing on the lava rocks. There were some people that occupied the upper level for a few days. We could hear their footsteps and the plumbing, but it wasn't too bad. I would definitely stay here again when I visit Hawaii!! less
— elaine, Stayed 06/13/2018
We had a wonderful stay at Kanaloa at Kona, unit 1502. The condo was a great fit for our family. Tons of space, comfortable, and provided every single thing we could have needed for our vacation. The view from the patio is gorgeous. We watched... more the sunset every night. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone staying in the Kona area. less
— Donna, Stayed 05/25/2018
Four of my alumna friends from all over the country had flown over to Kailua Kona and had met and had a most wonderful time at the Kanaloa condos unit 1502 in April. Our great vacation started with having the opportunity to explore the most... more famous historical sites in the big island of Hawaii. Moreover, we appreciated everything that this condo had offered to us during our stay. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed when we saw the gorgeous hibiscus and gardenia blooms right adjacent to the front door with lush palm trees on a beautifully manicured lawn and a little tropical yellow birds chirping! We were also welcomed with a luscious fruit basket once we entered inside. What nice touch! Everything was luxurious, the beds were very comfortable with each room with it's own TV sets and very well decorated. The kitchen was clean and well equipped with all the spices, we loved to cook breakfast in the mornings and enjoyed eating at the lanai, watching the high surf breaking at times. It was exciting to watch the school of dolphins jumping and splashing in the ocean few feet away. We also enjoyed watching the golfers t off, their 12th signature hole, few feet from us which was quite entertaining. In the evenings, the sunset at the lanai were the most spectacular scene of all! We also felt secure because the condo was a gated community. It had a lush gardens, barbecue areas and had 3 well maintained swimming pools each with a bubbling hot tubs to relax in. All in all, we've had a such a good time at the condo. We give it a 5 stars and more! less
— Ranhi, Stayed 05/16/2018
Nice View but Too Noisy
Nice view of the sea and the golf course from this unit, and kitchen/bathrooms are well appointed but outdated compared to other units we have stayed in at Kanaloa. Time to get rid of that old jet tub! Just a warning to folks who like... more to sleep in...this unit is VERY NOISY. The gardeners start up their power tools very early at their shed located right outside the unit's master bedroom, and if there are heavy footed or active children in the unit above....you wont get any sleep. less
— Andy, Stayed 04/16/2018
Aloha,Thank you for your review and I am sorry to hear you appeared to have had a less than a perfect stay. We just returned from Kona ourselves and discussed your comments with the gardeners. They informed us that they do not start work until after 8AM. Because our condo is located on the 12th tee of the Kona Country Club Ocean Course, what you heard may have been their maintenance.. Fortunately, our master bedroom is located on the opposite side of the building from the course. We did not have any problems with noise for the 2 weeks that we were just there but we will be sensitive to it moving forward. Mahalo, Mindy
We loved this place! It's large, comfortable, VERY nicely furnished, and generously equipped with everything we could think of needing on our holiday. The kitchen is well equipped , a real kitchen rather than a box. The condo is on the edge of a golf... more course, close to the beach, so that the view is part green grass and part ocean. You can see along the beach to Kailua in the distance.Every evening people from the other units would walk down to sit on the grass of the golf course to watch the sun go down. We would definitely try to rent this unit the next time we come to Kona. less
— John Carpenter , Stayed 04/09/2018
This Condo is right on the golf course with a few of the ocean. It is very roomy with everything you need for a great stay. It is a very quiet community other than the early morning construction that was going on above us and... more the garbage truck. The king size mattress in the master was very comfortable. Everything on the Big Island closes around 9p. Pool and Spa closes at 10p. I would recommend this condo to a friend. less
— Karol, Stayed 03/23/2018
My husband and I stayed at this lovely condo for a week. We found it had everything we needed and was extremely clean with a great view of palm trees along a golf course and of the ocean. The nice part of the location was... more not only that it was near a shopping area for groceries but never got hot in the afternoon sun and had some very lovely sunsets. It was quiet, had three swimming pools , and the grounds were kept up beautifully. I was very spacious. We would definitely recommend this to a couple or a family . less
— carol, Stayed 01/30/2018
We had a wonderful stay in your big, beautiful condo. It was so spacious and well-stocked with soap, shampoo/conditioner, towels, beach gear, guide books. Thanks for all those nice touches! Loved the huge shower with 2 heads in the master bedroom and the Jacuzzi tub!... more Could not believe that both bedrooms had walk-in closets! Your pictures and paintings were lovely! The lanai has a beautiful view of the ocean and we could see whales & dolphins, even without binoculars, all through the week. We couldn't see the sunset from the lanai, but we could easily walk out to the coastline and watch. Appliances all worked well, although the garbage disposal backed up a little bit at the end (we told Ken). The kitchen had every utensil you could possibly want. The washer and dryer were nice and big, so handy! Your location, south of Kona, is perfect, away from the crowds but still close to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants and Keauhou Bay which is where we took the Fair Wind's snorkel cruise to Captain Cook. We would definitely stay here again!!! less
— Joyce, Stayed 12/22/2017
Lovely condo, would not hesitate to stay there again. Not one thing needed during our stay except more time...
— Edward and Nancy, Stayed 11/27/2017
Comfortable Yet Luxurious
We found this condo to be both luxurious and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook our vacation type meals. So many little extras were included throughout the rooms. Our plans call for visiting there often.
— Maxine, Stayed 11/15/2017
Beautiful Views & Outstanding Accommodations
We thoroughly enjoyed our 11 night stay at Kanaloa at Kona #1502. The condo was very clean, well appointed and well maintained. Basic amenities were provided to get us going which was very much appreciated. The views of the ocean and 12th fairway were beautiful.... more We sat on the porch each evening enjoying the views and cool breezes. The owner provided good and timely information to us prior to our arrival and everything was as advertised. I would highly recommend the owner, the unit and Big Island Hawaii. This was our 4th stay at Kanaloa at Kona and the first in #1502. It was a very pleasurable experience and we hope to return soon. less
— Allen "Tom" Risher, Stayed 11/13/2017
The condo was very comfortable and clean. It was in a quiet location within the complex, with a wonderful view of the golf course and a partial ocean view from the lanai. There were snorkels, boogie boards, coolers and towels available, as well as hair... more dryers and a fully stocked kitchen. The community is gated and at check-in, received a parking pass for the length of our stay, as well as a gate card for after hours access. We were welcomed with a wonderful fruit basket. Mindy was terrific to work with, would rent the condo again without hesitation. less
— Danielle, Stayed 09/15/2017
This unit has a great view of the golf course and ocean. It is updated, modernized, and in great shape. Has all the necessary amenities to enjoy your stay. up to and including boogie boards, snorkel, etc. The only minor draw back is it is... more a ground unit and you will potentially have guest above you. less
— Larry, Stayed 08/25/2017
Beautiful Condo with Great Location
We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation at this condo. We have stayed at others in this same complex but definitely prefer this one. It had just about everything one could want, including some much appreciated beach chairs. The kitchen was fully appointed and easy to... more use. The view across the golf course was beautiful and we enjoyed many lovely sunsets. The carpeting looked nearly new and was very comfortable on one's bare feet! We also appreciated the welcoming fruit basket -- a nice touch. Would rent this condo again! less
— James and Susan, Stayed 06/03/2017
Felt right at home.
My family and I would like to give our say Mahalo for letting us spend our vacation at your wonderful condo. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. I'll start by saying this is probably the largest condo I've ever stayed in. A very... more spacious and open living area, that had double sliders out to the lanai which is equally as impressive. We ate every single meal we made out there. We listened to the daily chorus of birds during breakfast, and the magnificent sun sets during our dinners. The unit had everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was well stocked, the brand new washer and dryer (Still had the tags on them) worked wonderfully and there was even detergent and spray and wash provided in the bathroom. There is a closet stocked full of everything you will likely need at the beach as well (2 boogie boards, 2 coolers, a bunch of snorkel sets, a very nice beach umbrella, chairs with built in coolers, and even a bucket of sandcastle building toys for the kids). The property itself is very well kept and has three pools, though we only used the two that allow children. The ocean pool was hard to beat during the days and became a favorite hangout for the little ones. All in all, the only bad part about staying at 1502 Kanaloa is having to leave. It's truly a great place in the midst of paradise. We will certainly be coming back. less
— Tracy S, Stayed 04/21/2017
Thanks so much for the great review and the fact that you have enjoyed your stay! However, the guests should not expect to find any toys in the condo because they come and go and they are regularly cleared out to keep the condo space neat and tidy by the management team. Thanks again!
Wonderful Oceanfront Retreat
From the moment I arrived to the final hour of my late check out (prior arrangements needed) - this wonderful condo made my stay on the Big Island most comfortable and enjoyable. The central air conditioning is quiet and efficient and the condo was nicely... more cooled when I walked in the door late afternoon. A big fruit basket awaited me and I didn't need to buy any more fruit for the remainder of my stay! The oceanfront view across the fairway was spectacular - especially during the high surf when the blow holes would spout from the rocks. Just out your door you can stroll - or jog - across the fairway for your morning exercise or in the evening to watch the sunset. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need. Beach gear - chairs, snorkels and boogie boards - is provided as are large thick beach towels. Wi Fi worked flawlessly for both PC and MAC. I really loved that this condo is on the ground floor and has only the 3 steps at the entrance. As for someone's comment about the grounds maintenance noise - first off you can't have the beautiful grounds with all the tropical plants/flowers without constant maintenance but it's not every day the lawnmowers are going (maybe twice in the week I was there). Besides the local birds start their chorus at 6am - loud enough to wake a light sleeper - and what a pleasant way to wake up! Kanaloa is a wonderful place - and Condo 1502 is an exceptional value. I'll definitely book it again! less

Thank you so much for your great review and we are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay! Mahalo! Mindy Schellberg
Oh so relaxing!
This complex was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad she mentioned it to us. The condo itself was clean and well stocked with anything you would need for your stay including beach chairs etc. When inside the unit you do... more not hear anything outside or even walking from the unit above you, we could not believe how quiet it was. It is situated near the tee box on a nice golf course. It was fun watching the golfers go by, because it is on the back nine you could easily get up and go for a morning walk on the cart paths before the golfers start coming your way. We saw whales from our lanai and were lulled into relaxation with the waves crashing on the rocks at the shore line. Groceries, restaurants, shopping and many other activities are close by. Excellent unit at an excellent location! less

KANALOA CONDO 1502
A lovely condo in every way. Stunning view, great attention to detail throughout the home. Beautiful art, accessories. Could not have been better. Best of all was dealing w/ the owner. Mindy was delightful in every way. We felt so much security working with her... more during the booking process and during our stay. 5 star plus rating. Gail & Glenn less
— GAIL, Stayed 03/09/2017
Thank you so much Gail and Glenn. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments and great review. Hope you had a wonderful time on your vacation! Mindy
Great place to stay in Kona
We stayed at this condo from 1/18/17 to 1/25/17 and found it to be a terrific place. The master bedroom and bath were spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had extra guests for several days who used and enjoyed the guest... more bedroom and guest bathroom, and there was plenty of room. the entire condo was very clean and well appointed, and all of the appliances (dishwasher, range, refrigerator, washer, dryer) functioned well and appeared to be very new. One of our favorite features was the beautiful lanai that has an exceptional view of the ocean around the 12th hole of the golf course. We spent many mornings there enjoying a cup of coffee, the fresh air and the view. We also appreciated the use of the binoculars, ice chest, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and towels and other extras that the owner allowed us to use. The entire condo project is beautiful and well-maintained, and the ocean pool, tennis courts and other pools were terrific. It is also well located not far from a shopping center with a grocery store, and within a short drive from some great beaches and snorkling sites. The owner, Mindy, was very friendly and offered suggestions for local spots that she recommended, which turned out to be great advice. Mindy was also very prompt in responding to questions and emails, and was very easy to deal with. We loved this condo and our stay, we highly recommend it to others, and we would rent it again the next time we return to the Kona area. It deserves the top rating. Thanks, Mindy, for sharing your lovely home. less
— John and Susan, Stayed 02/05/2017
Thank you for your great comments. I am very happy that you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed staying at our condo! I hope you can visit again in the near future!
We had a great stay at your condo. The location is excellent. The views are fantastic! While the condo needs some updating it was very clean and well maintained. It shows the owner cares.
— Robert, Stayed 01/17/2017
Three friends and i spent ten leisurely days in December at Mindy's pretty condo in a beautiful resort complex by the ocean. Mindy is a delight to speak with (only had phone contact, as we were in different cities), and made me feel I'd made... more the right choice of condo long before I saw it. The two-bedroom, two bath condo is on the lower floor of a two-story building. Most of the units appear to be in shared two and three story buildings sprinkled about a huge, lushly landscaped property, very well maintained. We felt we had one of the best views, as we looked out over a peaceful golf course to the black lava rocks and the magnificent ocean beyond. We ate most of our meals on the patio with this splendid view. Most of the appliances look brand new. Huge LG washer-dryer, Whirlpool dishwasher and range (with quick burner feature, which a cook like me appreciates). Plenty of dishes and cookware. Thick white towels, lots of snorkeled, masks find etc for beach use. I could go on and on. We all loved the place and would highly recommend staying there if you want the western side of the island. It's a few miles south of the touristy Kailua-Kona shopping area, but there are restaurants and grocery shopping, etc. within just a few blocks. Thank you again, Mindy! less

Great place to stay in Kona
We vacationed on Kona from Oct. 11-19. Condo was wonderful and we can't say enough about it. It was very clean and had everything that you needed. The view from the lanai was the perfect place to sit in the morning with a cup of... more coffee to see the sunrise and to sit in the evening to see the sunset. The owners were very easy to work with and was always available to answer any questions that we had. They allowed us to have a late check out as our flight did not leave until 10pm. We have been back to 4 days and it is still all we talk about. Would and have recommended it to all our friends. I actually have a friend that I am giving all the information to as she is planning a trip. We will definitely come back to Kona and stay in this condo. Aloha less

Wonderful condo, beautiful sunset views
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The condo had everything we needed, including beach chairs and a cooler. The view from the lanai was breath taking especially at sunset. We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai everyday. The condo was clean and comfortable. Kitchen... more was well equipped. There was more than enough room for our family of four. We enjoyed the pool and recreation area as well. The only disappointment was that the ocean view pool was closed the week we were there. less

Thank you so much for your great review! We are sorry that the ocean side pool and cabana happened to be under construction when you were there. The pool is very well situated, right on the water and it is beautiful!. I know the other 2 pools with the hot tubs are also fabulous because it seems to provide more privacy. We hope though, the ocean side pool would be definitely open on your next visit! Thanks again! Owner
Wonderful Vacation Home
My husband and two children (aged 13 and 11) recently stayed at Kanaloa at Kona in unit 1502 and had a wonderful time. The condo is very nicely furnished and stocked with everything that you need and the views of the golf course and ocean... more are stunning. The sunset view from the lanais is probably one of the best on the entire island! That we had beach chairs, a cooler, and beach gear to use was such a nice added bonus - we felt at home. The location is perfect - close to everything. I would recommend this unit to anyone and we are already planning when we might be able to return. less

The condo was clean and very nicely laid out. We enjoyed the peaceful view and quite that this corner condo had to offer for us and our two girls. The coolers, boogie boards and snorkel gear were an extra treat that we enjoyed. We would... more rent this condo again without any hesitation. less

Great location to everything and amazing lanai view of water and the golf course
We had a great time at this condo. It was spacious enough and worked well for our family stay. It is centrally located to everything and we loved it for it's lanai providing a great view! We also loved the new decor! It was clean... more and the kitchen was well stocked. We loved to go up to our favorite restaurants very close by within the shopping center, up the hill from the resort. We drove to the most historical spots within hours of the day and back and it was just a few minutes drive for our favorite beaches from the condo. At the end of the evening, it was heavenly to soak in the hot tub, a few steps from the unit within the resort, and to dip in the warm pool. We loved to dine on a teak furniture and to watch the spectacular waves of water on the rocks. The 12th hole of the golf course at the sunset hours was also memorializing! The air conditioning kept us very cool. All in all, we couldn't wait to go back! less

Needs Updating and Repair
The owners are new so apparently have not had time to make needed changes. The condo is serviceable, but is very dated. Nearly every surface should be replaced to achieve a more sanitary situation (e.g., tile with lots of grout everywhere). The carpet has a... more large patch and shows a traffic pattern. The kitchen cabinets are low quality and show wear. There are two pocket doors in the master bath. The one that separates the bath from the bedroom takes significant effort to move and makes noise in that process. The showerheads should be replaced. The condo is located just across a narrow road from a primary staging area for the maintenance workers and the master bedroom is the closest room to that staging area. So the noise starts early in the morning. On the positive side, the unit is well located in the development and has nice views of the ocean and the 12th hole of the adjoining golf course. We were told by an owner of another unit that nearly all of the units have been updated, so at least at present there are better choices. less

Dear Larry, We appreciate your comments. As new owners of our condo as of November 2015, we are striving to bring the condo up to our high standards. We have made significant upgrades since your stay in February. During our trip in April 2016, part of our upgrades included: Central Air Conditioning (AC), Teak Dining Set on Lanai, New Sleeper Sofa, New Love Seat, New Washer/Dryer, New Kitchen Faucet, New Rainfall Shower Heads, New Decor, Artwork & Lighting We are planning to continue to do updates as our schedule allows. Please check out the new photos of the condo on the website to see our updates. In regard to your comment pertaining to the maintenance workers and also complaints from other unit owners, they now do not start before 8AM so noise should no longer be a problem. If it is, please know that you can contact me and I'll be happy to assist. Thank you! Owner, Mindy.
Lovely Condo, great location!
Our family recently stayed here for 4 nights in the New Year. We absolutely loved the condo. It had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The unit is up to date, clean and well equipped. It has a nice, large lanai, view of... more the ocean and golf course, and is on the 1st floor. The condo was more spacious than we expected, and is in a great location! Looking at the map, we thought we'd be far from the pools on the property, but the condo development was a bit smaller than we expected, and each pool is conveniently located within just a short walk from the unit. We also really loved the 'resort' feel of the property, yet the comfort of having a full sized unit for our family to stay. The beds were extremely comfortable, as well as the furniture in the main room. Communicating with the owners and nearby contact was very easy. They were very quick to reply, and graciously granted us a late check out when our flight was pushed a few hours. We would definitely stay in this condo again! less
