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 of the traffic and bustle of Kona.
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 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.
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 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!!

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 the sunset every night. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone staying in the Kona area.

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 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!
Nice View but Too Noisy
Reviewed by Andy
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 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.
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.

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 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.

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! 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!!!

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. 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.

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 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.

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 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.
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
Reviewed by mary ann
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 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!
Thank you so much for your great review and we are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay!

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 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!

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 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.

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 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!
You are very welcome! I was speechless when I read your great review and thank you! We work so hard, aim to please and it's reassuring to receive a positive feed back! Simply put, it makes us very happy to know that you had a wonderful time and that you enjoyed your stay at our condo! We hope that you can visit again!

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.
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 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!

Needs Updating and Repair
Reviewed by larry
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 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.
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.

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 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!
