My friends and I had the pleasure of staying in condo #203 at Kanaloa, Kona. Kurt & Bonnie Goldsmith are the owners and have made their place so comfortable & inviting. It is located close to the entrance set back against the golf course, so... more quiet & peaceful and a beautiful view of the course off the Lanai. The condo is decorated beautifully and tastefully, with furnishings are updated and a nice quality. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The large sectional sofa was especially great! Nice assortment of beach needs, including chairs, towels, mats, etc. Just a wonderful place that we so enjoyed! Will be back hopefully! less

A comfortable stay in a quiet location!
The condo is well supplied with everything we needed for our stay. It's in a lovely and quiet location, we loved being able to run to nearby Keauhou Bay and the beaches on Ali'i Drive. Very convenient being close to the Keauhou Shopping Centre with... more KTA Supermarket, Longs Drugs and the cinema. Also nice having the pools and jacuzzis on the premises. less
— Tess Geddes, Stayed 10/22/2019
This condo was wonderful! We enjoyed all of the space and all of the thoughtful amenities. The balcony next to the golf course (with lots of trees) was a great place to kick back with a cup of coffee and a book while I waited... more for the rest of the family to wake up. We wanted a condo close enough to downtown but without the noise of the main drag (Ali'i) so this place was perfect. I would definitely recommend this location (unless you can't do stairs, because you enter on the 1st floor, but ALL living spaces are upstairs). less

Great time again
We recently returned to condo 203 at Kanaloa Kona for the third time . We very much enjoyed our stay , and found even more to do on this wonderful Island .It has nice mix of relaxing in the Condo , with the choice of... more tennis or pool , but also a great area to explore . Thanks again , Max Maren and Connor less
— M J Newport, Stayed 06/28/2019
This is a fantastic location, very convenient to shopping, beaches, restaurants and just seconds from a front row seat to the most amazing sunset ever seen. Easy, friendly, positive, prompt, supportive communication throughout the rental process...especially important for someone not familiar with the island. The... more super quick check in is appreciated. The onsite staff is so professional and the property is beyond beautiful. We felt safe and secure the entire time. The unit was clean, well stocked, modern and updated - felt homey and relaxed. Furniture was really nice and comfortable. Games, books, puzzles and interesting local information was available. We were welcomed by a yummy gift basket that was delicious. We had so much fun and didn't want to leave. We cannot wait to rebook this condo. We would highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in an unforgettable vacation. less
— Laura , Stayed 04/29/2019
We really enjoyed hanging out at your Condo especially on the back lanai looking out over the golf course. Your condo is very well organized with easy to read and clear instructions. It was a very relaxing place to spend our spring break! Gordon &... more Katie less

Spacious and clean condo, accommodating and responsive owners!
Over the years my husband and I have learned that you get what you pay for when it comes to vacation rentals and we definitely got what we paid for and more with this wonderful condo! There is lots of space in the condo, the... more kitchen was well stocked with kitchen gear, and there were instructions for everything in the condo. The condo owners were very responsive and accommodating! We were traveling with a two year old and they made sure to give us baby gates and asked if we needed any other baby gear such as high chairs. The condo is located just far enough south that we didn’t have to deal with downtown Kona traffic but close enough that it was a very short drive to all the restaurants and shopping. There is a grocery store and restaurants with in a couple minute drive of the condo as well which was very convenient. When our flight to the island was cancelled, the owner even offered to extend our stay on the other end to make up for the lost day. I highly recommended this rental if you are looking to truly have a relaxing and worry free vacation! less
— Satchel and Tami, Stayed 03/08/2019
We loved our stay at Kanaloa 203. Comfortable and nicely furnished with plenty of space for 4 adult family members. Kitchen had what we needed to prepare meals. Loved the evenings on the lanai - dining and playing cards. Enjoyed the amenities - we went... more swimming in the pools, played tennis and ping pong, and used the snorkel equipment and chairs on our beach days. Keauhou is a nice quiet location not far from the busy town of Kona and convenient to explore many areas of the coast. This well cared for accommodation is highly recommended! less
— LA, Stayed 12/17/2018
We stayed 10 days in November and had an excellent stay. The owners were great with communication. The beds were comfortable, AC very handy, and having a full kitchen was great. Would stay again.

The condo 203
We loved the condo. Enjoyed watching golfers on the course. People were friendly and the pool was great. We will definitely stay with you again. Thank you for letting Mark and I enjoy your condo. Mark and Sandi Hall
— Sandi Hall, Stayed 11/18/2018
We needed a last minute booking because of a family situation, and this condo was available. We couldn't have found a better place for our stay. It is clean, beautifully furnished, well stocked and has a lovely peaceful view of the golf course. We were... more very happy to have air conditioning, as it was very not and humid while we were there. We haven't seen Kona as clear and pristine as it is right now for quite a while. No vog or haze since the volcano has stopped. We decided to extend our time and everyone made it as smooth as it possibly could have been. Immediate response from property manager and owners.. I can't recommend enough and I am VERY picky! less
— Margaret , Stayed 10/03/2018
We had the pleasure of staying at this condo August 2018. 1) Our flights to Hawaii were delayed by one day. Kurt and Bonnie quickly responded to our changes and since they did not have a boooking after us, offered to extend our stay by... more a day. 2) We also showed up the day before hurricane Lane hit (we are unlucky travellers). They corresponded with us throughout our trip to help us make the decision to stay or go and also made sure there was water and flashlights in case the storm was bad (it was not). 3) The condo was clean, fully stocked with anything you would want, had very confortable beds and was in a great location. We had access to beach towels, snorkel equipment, beach chairs and every kitchen gadget you would need. 4) The facilities were great. They are well kept, clean, and close to everything. We swam in all three pools, saw dolphins swimming past the resort and barbecued using the common grills. 5) The resort is close to the Heavenly coffee farm (awesome), downtown Kona and some beaches. We would definitely stay at this location again. Thanks Kurt and Bonnie! less
— Jim and Lisa, Stayed 09/02/2018
Unit 203 was perfect from the moment we stepped in until the 5th day that we checked out. Clean, comfortable, very spacious. Many of the details you would pay attention to in your own home have been taken care of here. Even the knives were... more sharpened! We’ll be back! less
— Brent, Stayed 08/03/2018
This was our first real family vacation and had a great time. We had stayed at this property before and we knew what we were getting. We wanted a place that was relaxing and quiet while offering variety of options if we wanted them. The... more location is a little off the beaten path, but that's what made it ideal for us. It's a little further south of Kailua/Kona, but not too far to drive 5-10 min. and go shopping or get a meal. Most of the snorkeling and swimming beaches are south of town anyways, so the condo put you closer to those locations as well. The condo was very close to a small strip mall or shopping center with a grocery store. This was very convenient for buying food or other necessities. We ate breakfast and lunch at the condo everyday in an effort to keep meal costs down, and having the grocery store there enabled us to do this. The condo property is well maintained and with a security gate restricting access. The property had three different pools, so none of them were very crowded. One of the pools was next to the ocean enabling us to sit by the pool, but listen to the ocean waves at the same time. If you just have to get into the ocean, there is a small cove with a park down the road as well. Our unit was located next to the golf course giving us a quiet and relaxed place to rest and unwind while we were there. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience and would come back in the future. less
— Marnie, Stayed 07/29/2018
A stunning condo in a stunning location
A wonderful unit, well equipped with lots of helpful information, a real home from home. The views from the unit of the golf course were beautiful from the main balcony with the added bonus of a sea view from the master bedroom balcony. We could... more not have wished for a better place to spend our time in Hawaii. The site itself was very well maintained with lovely well kept grounds, 3 lovely pools to choose from also with hot tubs. Can’t wait for the opportunity to return and would have no hesitation in recommending. less
— Mark R, Stayed 07/09/2018
Beautiful condo, awsome location, great holiday
We stayed here from May 14 - 22 and absolutely loved it! The condo is very clean, spacious, nicely decorated and exceptionally well equipped. The air conditioning keeps the place cool and comfortable. The location is great - quite and peaceful, close to grocery stores,... more beaches and restaurants. The complex is small, cozy, secure, very well organized, and taken care of. Has information desk, where you can book your island activities, library, games, tennis courts, 3 pools, access to the ocean (not for swimming - for stunning views), lots of palm tress, flowers, birds and unforgettable sunsets. The beach gear was a very cool bonus - we didn't have to rent and pay for it. Check-in and check-out were easy, smooth and accommodating. We had no issues during our stay. It was our first trip to Big Island and we had a super positive experience not only because Hawaii are always awesome, but also because of the place we stayed in. We miss it! Next time we are definitely staying here again:) Thank you! less
— Angie, Stayed 07/04/2018
Very nice condo
This condo is a very clean and beautiful living space, and we immediately felt comfortable to make it our home during our vacation on the Big Island. Check-in was easy and there were no complications. The kitchen was well equipped to enjoy meals at home,... more and the laundry facilities were modern and accommodating. The bedrooms and closets were spacious. The bathrooms were fully functional. The air conditioning kept the space very comfortable for us. The unit is located is a quiet corner of a lovely complex, overlooking a golf course. The complex is conveniently located when exploring all areas of the island. We will definitely consider this vacation rental for our next trip to the Big Island and will recommend it to our family and friends. less
— Janet and David, Stayed 05/19/2018
Our family enjoyed our vacation and the condo. It was nice to have all the comforts of home, condo was well equipped. The beach gear that was available was a nice added perk. Condo is in a quieter area which worked nice for us. The... more condo was close to a grocery store, theatre, beaches, and restaurants. Condo was a great fit and we would use it again. The only downside was the one security lady seemed like she expected my teenage boys to be doing something wrong, even when they where just walking around Kids ended up having hard feelings about it. less
— Robert Quist, Stayed 01/15/2018
Still a wonderful condo with everything you need
This was our second stay at Kanaloa at Kona, and we continue to be impressed with Kurt and Bonnie's hospitality. This is clearly the Goldsmith's second home, and it shows with the amount of thought they have put into all the details. Thanks to the... more well-stocked kitchen, we cooked nearly every night because we knew we'd have all the cooking utensils, pots, and pans we needed to pull together delicious meals. Everything is organized, labeled, and easy to find, from the selection of coolers for beach picnics to spare linens. The mattresses are super comfy and helped us sleep well. We were pleasantly surprised by the mid-stay cleaning visit halfway through our two-week trip. Kurt and Bonnie are always responsive and ensure a delightful stay. We will be back to Kanaloa at Kona 203 again! Mahalo! less
— Shannon, Stayed 12/31/2017
I believe this is our 4th or 5th time to Kanaloa 203 and we just absolutely love it. The unit is so comfortable and very equipped with anything you would need. The location is very convenient with a grocery store minutes away. The resort has... more three pools and one specifically for adults only. The grounds and the foliage are just amazing and very well cared for. We are already talking about another trip in 2018. less
— JP, Stayed 12/14/2017
The Condo 203 was simply fantastic. We were welcomed with a wonderful fruit basket and the decoration had everything you need in a full-fledged house. Everything was extremely well organized and clean. We'd come right back!
— Thomas, Stayed 11/15/2017
Condo - Kona
We had a wonderful stay at Bonnie and Kurt's condo. It was exceptionally equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is spacious and very comfortable. We had a wonderful welcome basket on the counter when we arrived. We had a little glitch with the... more air conditioning the morning after our arrival . Tom, the local contact person, was so helpful and had a technician out to repair it very quickly even though it was a Sunday. I would recommend this condo unit to anyone wanting to stay in the Kona area. Close to the downtown district but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. I would rate it A plus. Thank you Bonnie and Kurt less
— Janet, Stayed 08/31/2017
Fantastic, comfortable Condo
We had a very pleasant stay in this condo. The unit was very well equipped with just about anything you may need. The owner has spent a lot of time organizing the unit which is very helpful to the occupants. The beds are the best... more factor about it. Both beds slept beautifully. Best investment thus far. It's in a great location. Super clean. I would recommend this unit to anyone and will find myself coming back to it if back in the area. Many thanks, Owners. less
— Ashley, Stayed 07/09/2017
Excellent unit at a bargain price
Unit 203 is a bargain! I’ve stayed in several different condos at Kanaloa – this one tops the list for being beautifully furnished, clean, and well maintained. My initial thought upon entering was that it was nicer than the photo’s depict. We typically go for... more an ocean front unit – but found the golf course lanai quite relaxing. I didn’t miss the ocean view but did occasionally long for the breeze of being close to the water, so will consider A/C next time. The KTA supermarket up the hill seems to improve every year – we’ll probably just skip the usual Costco stop from here on out. Overall, great stay and will certainly consider #203 for the next trip. less
— Pete, Stayed 05/15/2017
Family of 5
This is the first time we have visited the Big Island and the condo is beautiful. This was the perfect size for my wife and 3 kids. The owner contacted me prior to my visit and knowing we were traveling with a 1 year old,... more they provided a high chair and gates. This condo has everything, all you need to buy is food. There is a convenient grocery store less than 2 miles away. Hopefully we get the chance to visit again! less
— Brian, Stayed 04/26/2017
This is a great place, on a scenic golf course and a short walk to the ocean in the evening to watch the sunset. The pools are very nice, all 3 of them. The lush gardens surrounding the condo are wonderful to be amongst and... more harbor geckos and an array of birds. The condo inside is comfortable and well stocked. It's a pleasant walk to the Keahou Shopping Center and to Keahou Bay. It's paradise! less
— Linda, Stayed 04/07/2017
Loved our stay at Aloha Condo. We took our family of 5 and it had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time on the big island. The condo was clean and the beds were comfortable, so much so my husband wants to replace... more our bed at home now! less

Kanaka Condo 203
Lovely condo and very nicely appointed. Kitchen is very well equipped and lacked nothing. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Relaxing and Great Condo!
We had a great time staying in unit 203 at the Kanaloa at Kona resort. The condo itself was very well stocked, large and very clean. Loved the beds (its my biggest complaint usually). Lots of little things (spices, condiments, etc) were all taken care... more of. The welcome basket was very thoughtful and shows the great hospitality of its owners. We LOVED it! Sitting on the balcony watching the golfers stroll by was extremely relaxing and very quiet. The facilities in the complex were great. The pools were wonderful especially the oceanside one and we spent hours hanging out there with our 5 yr old. It was a short 5 min walk from the unit. We really enjoyed the fact that we were outside the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. We would HIGHLY recommend this unit and complex. We will definitely look them up the next time we visit the island. Mahalo! less

Kanaloa at Kona, Condo 203
We really enjoyed our stay at Kanaloa at Kona. Kurt and Bonnie have a wonderful condo that met all of our needs. The location was great, the view of the golf course was nice, the unit was very clean, and we immediately felt at home.... more As I was in town to participate in Ironman, it was very helpful to have a kitchen with everything necessary to prepare familiar pre-race meals. I wish we could have stayed even longer. If I ever get the opportunity to return to Kona, I hope to stay at Kurt and Bonnies condo. less
— Joel, Stayed 10/28/2016
Very Relaxing Stay
We booked this condo for a surprise birthday stay for my Mom's 80th birthday. The moment she walked in she was happy. It was quiet and spacious (the master suite is to die for with it's own private lanai) and very well equipped. The three... more pools were perfect. From the Ocean pool we watched a pod of dolphins go by, saw tropical fish in the water, and enjoyed sunbathing while my Dad was able to read the paper under the shaded picnic area. It was great that we could all be together and enjoy what we each liked, all at the same time. There were many times we had the Adult pool all to ourselves. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. In addition to that the location overlooking the golf course made for perfect morning coffee on the lanai, as well as evening relaxing time after dinner. It was fun to watch the golfers as well. It was an absolutely great trip thanks to many things and this condo was icing on the cake. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to relax and unwind, yet be close to other activities (marina near by, groceries, snorkeling, you name it). Thank you so much for sharing your home. less
— Carol Jackson, Stayed 10/21/2016
We are a family four and all of us loved this apartment. It is very big and gives a lot of space such that every one found his favorite chair or sofa. It even has two lanais. The apartment was very clean and all appliances... more worked very well. We loved to watch the birds in the trees while having breakfast outside and we loved the pools. The apartment provides everything for a family vacation, many things for activities at the beach and also more than the usual and high quality equipment for cooking and dining. The on site service personal is doing a great job with cleaning and maintenance. We highly recommend this apartment and would love to rent it again on our next trip to Hawaii.

Just as good the second time !
We stayed in condo 203 for the second time in June 2016 . This unit is lovely , it has every thing you need for a relaxed stay, this time we shared it with my sister and brother in law and their grandchild . It... more was great , nice and quiet but close to the pool and tennis courts . Happy to recommend to anyone wanting to relax in a great location.. Thanks again Kurt and Bonnie for allowing us to share your piece of paradise . Max & Maren . less

This condo was perfect! Plenty of privacy, nice location, well equipped, and very clean. The owners are very generous with their things and that is so very kind! Thank you for such a great stay, and we are excited to visit again in the spring!
— David & Kristi, Stayed 08/05/2016
We have stayed in 203 three times now. Everything is great. Clean, spacious, well equipped, in a good position. Good value. Overlooks golf course, but the ocean is only a 2 minute walk away. We would definitely stay again. Owners are great to work with.

What a way to spend an anniversary
My husband and I have been to Hawaii, especially The Big Island, many times. Our first stay was at Kanaloa at Kona and we loved the facilities. We have stayed in many other rental units over the years and when we decided to return to... more Hawaii to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary we decided to return especially to Kanaloa at Kona and we found Unit #203!!! THE BEST EVER!! Kurt and Bonnie, the owners of the unit, were very gracious and accommodating from the start. Upon our arrival there was a beautiful floral arrangement of all the exotic flowers of the islands, an anniversary card, a bottle of champagne and a welcome basket with all sort of fruit, cookies and nuts. What could I say about the unit itself - it is apparent this is Kurt and Bonnie's second home, it is equipped with everything a person could possible need - definitely did not feel like a rental unit. The furnishing were amazing and very comfortable - right down to the sleep number bed. We called our Local Contact, Tom, for a minor problem and he was very helpful and accommodating. Kurt also called to assure the minor problem was resolved and that we were comfortable. This DEFINITELY will be the unit we will return to on our next trip. Mahalo and Aloha. less
— Betty M, Stayed 10/08/2015
Home away from home!
We've stayed at Kanaloa at Kona 4 times and twice in 203. We were so happy to return and spend a month a month in this wonderful condo. It's very spacious, clean, comfortable and fully stocked. We utilized the well equipped kitchen, beach towels and... more chairs, coolers and also enjoyed the nice variety of books. The location is perfect, the quiet setting makes you feel as if you are more remote than you actually are as downtown Kailua Kona is just an easy drive north on Ali'i Drive. We loved sitting out on the lanai overlooking the golf course, while enjoying the peaceful view and listening to the beautiful song birds. Tom, the local contact and owners Kurt and Bonnie were extremely responsive to a couple of issues that came up. We thank you for everything! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return again. Mahalo! less
— Marybeth , Stayed 09/23/2015
A wonderful condo with everything you need
Over the course of six visits, we have stayed in a variety of accommodations on the Big Island, but this condo has surpassed all the rest. We knew we had arrived somewhere special when we saw the unexpected and much appreciated welcome basket. As we... more looked around the unit, it was clear that Kurt and Bonnie have gone to great lengths to make this a home away from home, equipping it with all the necessities as well as detailed descriptions and directions for everything from using appliances to making the most of your island visit. When we had a minor problem with equipment, the response was quick. The local caretaker, Tom, came by with a repairman, and when we returned to the condo, not only was the problem resolved, there was an exquisite flower arrangement on the dining table. This is the kind of gesture that you expect from a five-star hotel. We hope to plan our future visits far enough in advance that we can always stay here. less
— John, Stayed 07/24/2015
Vacation in paradise
The condo we rented (203) was the best rental we've ever had. Everything was perfect - starting with a lovely welcome fruit basket and going through lots of nice touches. The unit is huge and decorated beautifully. You feel at home staying there, there is... more no usual coldness of a vacation rental. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is a lovely lanai overlooking a golf course. Mattresses are very comfortable and expensive. Everything there is designed and bought for a personal use, not for a rental. There is a 5 min walk to the pool area overlooking the ocean and we were watching sunsets there almost very day. Kurt and Bonnie, thank you for your hospitality! less
— Ne0phyte, Stayed 07/15/2015
This condo had everything we needed and then some. The property is beautiful with three pools and a hot tub at each. The location is great, just a short drive into town. We did a lot of day trips and this location was a perfect... more base for us. The beds are super comfortable. The owners are very quick to get back to you if you have any concerns. It was a very quiet relaxing place to stay, there was five of us and there is plenty of room for everyone. Thanks for making our trip enjoyable, I will stay here again when I go back! less
— PattySine, Stayed 04/30/2015
Everything was perfect!
Condo 203 is really beautifull. We didn't expect such a nice appartment. Everything was like it is shown in the photos. It's very quiet, except when garden workers are doing their job. There are 2 swimming pools at Kanaloa at Kona, one with nice view... more on the ocean. less
— TriPustolovec, Stayed 11/01/2014
Great condo-peaceful view!
I recently stayed in this condo and found it even nicer than I had expected. It was clean, well equipped, and very spacious. The view off the lanai was very peaceful and a great place to enjoy a meal. The owners were readily available to... more answer any questions I had and couldn't have been nicer to deal with. Be sure to catch the amazing sunsets from the ocean pool-it doesn't get any better than that! less
— KonaMike14, Stayed 10/21/2014
This beautiful condo proved to be the perfect choice for our vacation, which we prolonged. The owners go to great lengths to make sure that their place is comfortable and has everything one can need ( from great mattresses and cookware to a delicious welcoming... more fruit basket!) The apartment is located on a carefully manicured estate, at walking distance from a nice shopping center (with a lovely Saturday organic market), right on the volcanic coast close to the Sheraton resort (where one goes diving with manta rays, an absolute must! ). No beach here as the coast is quite rocky, but Magic Sands beach, just a few miles away, is one of the best snorkeling spot on the island, shallow enough for beginners, and better than Captain Cook in terms of "fish population". Also, the resort is close enough to Kailua-Kona (where one can even go via tramway). All in all, a very pleasant stay in the loveliest of condos which we recommend highly! less
— ginsengNewYork, Stayed 09/06/2014
Too bad we can only give five stars - Condo was absolutely superb
Of all our trips to Maui and the Big Island, Our stay here was by far the best. Everything was "TOP SHELF" from the layout and view to beds to cookware to condiments entertainment, facility and the special added welcome package. This was our 20th... more Wedding Anniversary - and second honeymoon - and this condo helped make it a perfect time. Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy such a wonderful home away from home. MAHALO! less
— William D D, Stayed 06/13/2014
Relaxing and everything was there that we needed.
What a beautiful condo you have Bonnie and Kurt! It is a huge space, easily enough for six people if two of those didn't mind sleeping on the pull out couch. The welcome basket with fruit, cookies and chocolate was deeply appreciated as was the... more fully stocked spice cabinet and refrigerated condiments. (Just a reminder for anyone going to Hawaii that they will be the first state that will not give out bags when you grocery shop, so take your own.) Thanks for the posted advice about how to control bugs. We stayed in this complex previously in a first floor condo and really had trouble with bugs. Did not see a single bug in the condo! Thank you! less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 01/06/2014
With two exceptions, everything in the condo was as perfect as checking in at a 4-Star resort. The place was spotless, everything was in place and we felt at home within minutes of our arrival. The two minor exceptions are as follows: The toaster did... more not work. There was no shampoo in either bathroom, only conditioner. Location is excellent...close to amenities, shopping yet very quiet and serene. less
— DesignPro, Stayed 12/12/2013
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our condo Kanaloa 203. A new toaster is in place now and would have been done during your stay had we known about it. We’ve been providing some existing inventory of conditioner in the bathrooms as a convenience to our guests and will look into the shampoo supply. Mahalo for your feedback! Kurt & Bonnie, Owner, Kanaloa at Kona, Condo 203
Nice Visit to Kona
This was about our 5th visit to 203 and we love it. It is like our home away from Home. Everything you might want is there. This time, we drove the Saddle Road between Hilo and Kona and it is wonderful. The local literature still... more say to stay off of it because it is narrow, bumpy, filled with turns and very dangerous. The truth is, it has been completely rebuilt during the past 6 years under the supervision of the Federal Highway authority and it is fantastic. 1-1/2 hours between Hilo and Kona. Wide smooth roadway with gentle turns. If you want to play golf, be aware that the Kona Country Club course (adjacent to the condo) is closed until at least Spring 2014. That didn't bother us, but it might bother golfers. less
— George K, Stayed 08/28/2013
Another great stay
This was our second stay in Kanaloa at Kona 203. Simply wonderful. Pros... large condo, quiet location, close to snorkeling, great pools, tennis and table tennis, covered parking, Smart TV, super fast Internet, great beds, great price. Cons... cannot see ocean from room (but you... more can go down to the ocean pool and see it there. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 08/19/2013
Beautiful and comfortable
We thoroughly enjoyed Condo 203. It was a real home-away-from-home, comfortable and very nicely decorated. Not one complaint!

A wonderful retreat and a gem of a vacation home
We traveled around Hawaii for 2 months and this was the one condo we stayed at that exceeded our expectations, where the photos do not show what a lovely home it is. It is extremely well-cared for with great quality furniture, art, and products throughout.... more We had everything we needed and felt the location was peacefully off-the-beaten-track, yet close to Kona/Kailua, a brief drive to Kealakekua and Honaunau to the south, and a short drive to the Kekaha Kai & Waikolola area beaches to the north. We would recommend this unit without one hesitation and would love to return and stay longer in the future. Highly recommended and an absolute bargain. less

Relaxing, beautiful and everything we expected and more
This was our first trip to the Big Island. We spent two days in Hilo and 8 days in Kailua-Kona. Condo 203 was breath taking. The condo was a little slice of Kona. The decore was exactly what you would picture in Hawaii. The condo... more was very clean and was well equiped with everything needed. The KTa grocery store and Longs Drugs were convienent for all our needs. We enjoyed the volcano and the Pana`ewa Rainforest Zoo & Gardens in Hilo. In Kailua-Kona we enjoyed a luau at Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel, snorkeling cruise on a catamaran to Kealakekua Bay and a trip to The Place of Refuge. The best snorkeling was Kahalu'u Beach a mile from the condo. Our family cannot wait to return. We will definately stay at Kanaloa at Kona Condo 203. less

Amazing.. Great Hospitality, Home away from home
What a great stay at such an awesome condo. Everything you could need was there, the condo was well equipped and Kurt and Bonnie went above and beyond to make us forgot all our troubles on our previous Island adventures. The welcome basket was well... more stocked and the pineapple was sooo delicious. We stayed for 6 days and our kids enjoyed thoose 6 days the most. The usage of the gear in the carport was AWESOME and saved us from having to rent. We will be staying here anytime we visit our friends on the Big Island! Thanks for such a great stay. less

Like being home in paradise
The condo is much more lovely and larger than an internet picture can show. Easy access to many area attractions but in such a lovely and quiet area that lends to R&R; but just down the road from all the action. Better equipped than most... more vacation rentals, in fact it felt like our own luxury home. I could choose from a restful nights sleep in the king sized sleep number bed or a lazy nap in a large reclining chair the size of a full bed on one of the two decks. The soft clean water of the Island is so enjoyable from the luxury tiled shower in the large master bath. You could cook anything in the kitchen, in fact it was big enough for our who party to make a luau sized meal to eat on one deck looking over the golf course with peek a boo views of the ocean. Walk the grounds to the water- too rough to swim in but good for foot dipping and a stroll along the shore. All 3 pools of the property are enjoyable but with so many beaches nearby you may or may not need them. We stayed in april with no air conditioning, the vented windows and ceiling fan were cooling enough. We even had a welcome basket that greeted us. less

What a wonderful experience!
This was our second trip to Kona and first time staying at a condo. What a wonderful experience! Your condo just echoed "Aloha" from the welcoming fruit basket to the oh-so comfortable furniture!

Best Vacation Spot on the Big Island
This was our 8th trip to Hawaii (we have logged more than 3000 miles driving on the Big Island alone) and a 30th wedding anniversary trip. Firstly, let me highly recommend aloha Condo's website for your use (and I have no association with this group).... more Far and away the best selection and reasonable costs for these units. On the Big Island, I would suggest that unit #203 is one of the nicest locations on a golf course and near pretty much everything. The new owner's made sure we knew everything we needed, kept us informed and had a wonderful fruit basket waiting the day of arrival, no hassles, no fuss, very easy. You can walk easily to a nearby pool, the ocean and great views (but no ready access to the water and not the place you want to enter anyway). #203 is a large condo with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, great master bed (very nice quality), has all the features you need from full washer/dryer, great kitchen with plenty of supplies, two lanai's, and air conditioning (and Yes- AC is needed during the summer and fall when the "trades" are down). The location at Kanaloa at Kona is close to everything, but far enough away from some of the more congested area's to make your trip enjoyable. Near dock for snorkeling/dive trips (just a few minutes away), close to Place of Refuge (for sunsets & Hawaiian history), Volcanoe's (a long days trip), the State Park on ali drive (good for beginning snorkeler's). Good restaurant's in the nearby vicinity (I recommend Teshima's about 20 minutes away for a local asian flavor). On a scale of 10 (and you really have to pay a lot more for a 10), I would say this is a solid 8, with a qualification that using aloha Condo's site is the way to go, I've had less satisfaction renting directly from the resort itself (with higher costs). Plus the Kanaloa folks seem to be more interested in renting the units, than the comfort of the guests. Aloha from the big Island! And I'm already planning my next trip back to #203...thanks Kurt & Bonnie! less

Arriving at the resort feels like arriving at a pocket of paradise...warm greeting at the gate, going through to lush landscaping (more hibiscus flowers than I've ever seen before), and all to the sound of birdsong. Walk in to a gorgeous welcome tropical fruit basket,... more and you know that it couldn't get much better! This unit has an embracing view of the rolling greens of the golf course - the lanai is just so inviting. Inside, the unit is set up for every comfort for the family. It's very relaxed decor/finish etc was just right for a relaxing family holiday (not for 5 star marble seekers). The unit is only a very short distance from the tennis court and 2 of the resorts pools; a short walk further takes you to the gorgeous ocean-front pool and lava coastline. loved it. Would go back tomorrow. less

Enjoyable unit in awesome Kanaloa complex
We have rented other condos in the past, and this was by far the best equipped condo. It has everything from spices to zip lock bags, detergent to shampoo/conditioner - we really appreciated not having to go to the store for anything besides food! Kanaloa... more is one of our favorite condo resorts. This unit was very peaceful, right on the golf course with a lot of greenery all around. It was also quite a bit detached from the other condos so we were not overlooking anyone else which was very nice. less

Kanaloa at Kona 203 - Great condo, great location, great price!
We have stayed at the Kanaloa at Kona five times, each time in a different condo. 203 is the best value! You cannot see the ocean, but you do look out over the lush green golf course. Condo have everything you need, clean, well furnished,... more quiet location. We needed a late checkout and we were able to stay in the condo till 3PM (as no one was coming in the day we checked out.) less

This condo was by far my best experience with renting on the big island. It is so beautiful overlooking the golf course. And yes, we all agreed, the beds were dreamy. Entering a home atmosphere and feeling right at home and comfortable was a joy.... more All of our needs and wants were met. The owner was professional regarding the "paperwork" part. We all felt like we should respect the condo just like it were our home. It is not a dump, it is a palace, so we treated it like a palace, with respect. We hope to return to Kona and 203.

Quiet, comfortable, clean and very relaxing!
This was our first trip to Kona as a family (2 adults/4 children under age 13) and we are so thankful to have found Jim's condo at Kanaloa! The check-in process was easy and the the condo was very clean! It was rather hot inside... more so once we turned the a/c on, it was a short time for it to cool down. The condo stayed cool and comfortable every day after that. We loved the space of the condo with a large livingroom and diningroom that faces the quiet golf course, and the master bedroom has a large dressing room where we could hang clothes and stow our luggage. The condo had everything that we could possibly need for 7 days! The kitchen had all the cookware and appliances, there were boogie boards and snorkel gear, puzzles and games (we put both puzzles together, which was fun!), and the beds were Sooo comfortable. The property was quiet, not loud or busy like some hotels or resorts (maybe because we were there in July/first of august), and the staff were nice and kept the property spotless. Our kids loved watching the geckos climbing the exterior walls, and we actually found two inside the condo (even with the doors and windows always closed). Since geckos in the home are considered good luck, we were happy to have them inside! We used the snorkel gear at the Kahalu'u Beach just down the road and had the most amazing time seeing tropical fish!! We bought a cheap underwater camera to take lots of pictures of fish and turtles. Believe us when we say that this condo is completely worth staying at! You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars at some other properties to have comfort and relaxation, especially if you're out on adventures most of the day. Thank you, Jim!! less

Slice of Paradise
Condo 203 at Kanaloa at Kona is the perfect setting for a magical trip. Everything you may need has been considered and provided. The beds are so comfortable that I plan to buy one for myself.

Condo 203 is the cream of the crop! We stayed in this venue for three weeks and couldn't have asked for better accommodations while on the big island. No detail is omitted...even down to clothes soap, cooking utensils/appliances, snorkeling supplies, etc. It's close enough to... more town and markets, yet tucked away in a beautifully landscaped hideaway. All three pools were lovely and being able to hear the nearby waves crash added the greatest ambiance. We loved it! less

Great Condo and Nice Pools
The Condo at Kanaloa at Kona was a lot better then we expected, especially for the price. Very spacious 2 bedroom with private deck connected to master suite, and another large deck fronting golf course was great in the evenings. My wife especially enjoyed the... more 3 pools. The one by the ocean was great, but we preferred the pool next to the activity room where we took full advantage of the ping pong table. Very close to the harbor for snorkel tours and 15 minutes out of downtown Kona if you're into the touristy thing. less

— HiloBoy, Stayed 09/08/2010
Our stay at Kanaloa condo 203 exceeded our expectations for our 30 year reunion. From our entry when we found someone had anticipated our arrival and left Hawaiian music, soft lighting, and some air conditioning on to greet us, to our departure, we remained delightfully... more surprised. Jim seemed to have anticipated our every need; from a cooler and ice packs we used when grocery shopping at Costco, to snorkel equipment, beach chairs and towels, detergent for the laundry, toiletries for the bathroom, a high speed internet connection, any cooking utensil we found a need for, a Hawaiian cookbook with simple recipes, and incredibly comfortable Tempurpedic style mattresses. We loved the Indonesian style daybed on what we dubbed the "sleeping porch!" The condo was spotlessly clean. The grounds are immaculately well-kept and the ocean-side pool was great! Had we had the time and inclination, we could have used the tennis courts for 12 hours a day. The proximity to a grocery store saved us money when we felt like kicking back and relaxing at home rather than heading out to a restaurant. For all of the reasons listed,we liked this condo better than the second one we rented in Waikoloa in fact. Besides the aforementioned attention to detail , we realized that what made it feel particularly special and "home" was the proliferation of Hawaiian artwork we made a point of admiring. Thanks Jim! less

Outstanding in all aspects
I reserved unit #203 at Kanaloa at Kona through aloha Condos. Our 8-day stay was outstanding in all aspects. Booking and instructions: Booking was efficient and our queries were answered promptly. Instructions to access the resort and the unit were crystal-clear and it was easy... more to find the condo even after dark. The condo: Everything there is arranged to make your stay easy, comfortable and, enjoyable. The unit is perfectly clean and highly functional. The fact that beach equipment was provided and the welcome fruit basket are nice touches that the whole family appreciated. The unit is beautifully decorated and one can see its owner takes great care of it. Books, DVD, and a wealth of touristic information were other aspects we enjoyed. The kitchen is fully equipped and everything was in perfect working order. After long days touring the Big Island, it was great to have peaceful and pleasant dinners at the condo. We also all loved having breakfast on the lanai. Kanaloa at Kona: Grounds are extremely well kept and pretty with all those flowers. We enjoyed the pools and the fact we could use the barbecues. Walking along the shore was another pleasure we had at Kanaloa. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate one second to stay there again. We travel a lot and have rented condos and houses in many locations in Europe and the USa. This was definitely one of our best if not our best rental experiences. less

A terrific rental in a great location
We stayed here for two weeks, the first time in this condo but a return visit to Kanaloa. The complex is away from the bustle of Kailua but handy to a shopping centre that has a lot of amenities. The condo is very comfortable and... more well maintained. There are a lot of nice touches that you often don't find in a condo, like toiletries. The kitchen is well stocked to get you started if you want to cook. Both the lanais are equipped with comfy furniture and perfect for relaxing o dining outside. Our only complaint was having to pay for cleaning twice in two weeks - and the cleaning fees are high. Other than that we would definitely recommend this condo. less

Great location; comfortable; a little dated
This condo is in a great location in the Kailua area. We enjoyed eating meals on the spacious and well-appointed lanai. The condo is well-suited for a couple with young children; it would be crowded for a couple with two teenagers. Although not on the... more ocean, the view across the fairways of the golf course are fine and relaxing. My only less than stellar statement is that the kitchen and baths have not been updated, so these areas of the condo feel old and tired. less

Very Trustworthy Rental Condo Co.
We often travel as a family. It's always a challenge for us to find accommodation for 5, parents and 3 teenagers. Thus, when I could luckily reach the owner by phone, I felt very good about him as he was very kind and sincere to... more answer my questions and offer suggestions. He was very professionally communicative throughout our Hawaiian holiday. The location was away from the busy highway and was very quiet, yet very close to shopping and dinning. I believe that the owner vacations in the property when not renting. The place was more than we expected. It was just like being at one's elegantly, tastefully and beautifully decorated home with a large family kitchen, cozy living room, spacious dinning room as well as full cleaning and laundry amenities the family needs. The location of the condo was away from a busy pool, facing the vast green field. It was always quiet to fall asleep with windows open. We stayed at another private 2-bedroom condo in Maui and Oahu on this trip. If he had had the accommodation for 5 of us on these Islands, I would have chosen to stay at his property definitely. His place has been a big part of our good memories of our trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. less

Beautiful ly furnished Condo in great location
Our family stayed at Kanaloa at Kona #203 several years ago. It was our 3rd trip to the Big Island in 5 years, and our first stay at unit #203. By far, unit #203 was the nicest unit we stayed at. It was the most... more spacious, quietest, and most beautifully furnished. The unit is located on the edge of the golf course, and is situated away from the parking lot, so it is especially quiet. The very large living room looks out to the golf course. The furnishings are not only high quality, but tastefully done in a "tropical" theme, adding to the island experience. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the two bedrooms are very spacious. We stayed at a different unit at Kanaloa at Kona the prior year, but this unit was much nicer (and larger). I would highly recommend this condo for a vacation rental on the Big Island and would absolutely stay again in this unit. less

The attention to detail is very evident - soap supplied for the dishwasher (rather than having to buy a whole box for just a week's stay),... more waterproof pads for the mattress (we have 2 young kids), detailed information on where to eat and what to do locally, beach toys for the kids, a welcoming gift basket including Kona coffee, all the appliances and dishes one could ever need, and the list goes on and on. I really appreciate it when someone 'gets it,' and Jim clearly does. The condo was a very welcoming and quiet place to come home to after a busy day. We are so glad we didn't stay a little farther north towards busy Kailua-Kona. All this at quite a reasonable price too. Should we return to the west side of the Big Island someday, the decision on where to stay will be a no-brainer! less

Home Away from Home
This is the fourth time that we have stayed in KAK 203, and it will not be the last. We continue to return year after year for several reasons: the peaceful lanai on the golf course; the excellent location; the fabulous kitchen; the top-end outdoor... more barbeque; and the memories that come from staying in this perfect home. If I could move into 203 permanently, I would! We are already looking forward to returning! less

This was the perfect place for us on our first family visit to the Big Island. We were very impressed with the condo: location, size, amenities, layout, and price. The condo met our every need! We especially enjoyed the matresses, relaxing on the lanais, spacious... more rooms, and thank you for the chocolate and coffee welcome gift! It was paradise - we hope to return soon and highly recommend this unit. less

Excellent place to stay in Kona !
We had a wonderful week stay @ the Kanaloa in Kona in condo #203. It was very spacious for just the 2 of us and very clean. There are swimming pools each w/jacuzzis and BBQs on the grounds if one day you don't wish to... more eat out. It was a fun time for us; I will always remember the friendly people we met, all the excellent restaurants (look around a little & you'll find some great prices)and the bright vivid colors you can only find on the islands. Take it all in while you're there and enjoy every minute of it ! less

Wow...we were stunned!!
The unit was absolutely perfect for us and in "like new" condition with not a single scuff or mark anywhere. It looked like something you would see in a decorating magazine and nothing like the "no personality" rentals that are so common. Small touches everywhere... more made it feel like a beautiful friend's home. The view of the golf course was fun as we sat and had breakfast well making rude comments (quietly to each other) about some of the golfers lack of talent on the links! We would return in a heartbeat!! less

Our family of four loved staying here. The unit is very well-maintained and well-equipped. It felt like home - better than home. The location is convenient.

Nice condo at Big Island
We just spent a wonderful week at the Kanaloa at Kona. This was our third time stay at this condo. We think this location is ideal at Big Island especially at Kona side, not so far from center of Kona but quiet. Easy access to... more southern beautiful snorkeling points such as Kealakekua bay or Puuhouna O Hanaunau park where we could meet dolphins. The room was clean and all necessary things were there for cooking. Shopping center is in walking distance. There are three pools at this condo and two tennis courts, both we could use free. We'd definitely recommend this condo at Kona. We really enjoyed our vacation there. less

The Condo was first rate - better that I expected - Living area was large and well decorated - it had everything we needed - I would recommend this condo to All !!!- The only negative was no markings at the street you turn down... more to get to the complex entrance -I came in at night and it took a little searching before I found the gate. less

Quiet Condo with Great Amenities
We spent 5 nights at this condo, and this was our second visit. We love this condo and the complex. The condo is very quiet and private, with an awesome view of the fairway off one of the lanais where you can watch birds and... more geckos in the morning while having coffee. It's spacious,nicely decorated, and well equipped with all the luxuries of home. The complex has pools, tennis courts, and gas grills. There is a walking path along the shoreline where you can watch the sunset. Upon arrival, Jim provides a very nice gift basket with assorted fresh fruits and goodies. We highly recommend this condo. The first we rented it we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was much nicer than the pictures online. less

Our stay in Jim's condo at Konaloa was beyond spectacular. The condo is furnished and outfitted with only the finest of furniture, bedding, appliances and accessories. The unit is just splendidly outfitted. Everything you may think you could need is there. Even questions that arise... more due to "operator error" are answered promptly and fixes provided. There are not enough superlatives in our vocabulary adequately describe our stay in Jim's condo. It made for a truly perfect vacation. Mahalo Gary & Linda less

This condo is so nice I don't want the secret to get out. Kanaloa is in a good location, the grounds and three pools are always well tended. Unit 203 is beautifully furnished and maintained. I've rented through Alohacondos.com three times and highly recommend it.

Our Absolute Favorite Place to Stay
We have stayed at this beautiful property twice now. It is very comfortable with with 2 bedrooms and a huge sofa in the living room (if necessary). It is beautifully decorated, cleaner than you can imagine and all of the household items you would ever... more need. We have always felt safe and secure while staying here. The neighbors are friendly, the grounds immaculate and the fairway view is unbeatable. We will go back again and again. The Big Island is our favorite, with such variety of scenery and things to do. Jim is a pleasure to do business with, very knowledgeable about the island, things to do, places to eat etc. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a luxury property at a reasonable price. less
