nice but very noisy

The Condo was nice with a great view.The resort property is nice and the ocean front pool is a real bonus.The noise from the unit above us made our last 3 nights very unpleasant and very hard to sleep.Then the same noise woke us up at 5 AM. less

— Shannon & Eric, Stayed 06/14/2024

Perfect family stay

We have been staying at Kanaloa for years and this year did not disappoint. Unit 3601 is perfectly situated oceanfront, with the amazing sound of the waves crashing right in the bay in front of you. Million dollar view on the big island. It’s quietly tucked away from the rest of the resort making it super private and quiet. The unit was spacious and provided all the amenities we needed. We love Kanaloa. The oceanfront pool is unmatched and the grounds are perfectly kept. The staff are always so kind. We would highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to stay on the big island. less

— Lori , Stayed 04/01/2024

Unit 3601

We have stayed at unit 3601 at Kanaloa several times. We couldn't be happier with the unit. The location is great, close to Kahaluu, grocery, golf, restaurants etc. Mr. Shook keeps the unit exceptionally clean and well stocked. It is decorated in a fun Hawaiian style. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We love all the pools and especially enjoy the adult pools. Thank you for providing such a wonderful condo for us! less

— Patricia, Stayed 03/01/2024


We stayed in this unit for 11 days, and sure hated to pack up and head home to rain/snow. Overlooking the ocean,and hearing the waves roll in and out of the cove it sits above was so beautiful and relaxing. Just about every day a man showed up on his surfboard and rode the waves. We hope to stay in this lovely unit with its well equipped kitchen again! less

— Ann, Stayed 12/20/2023

Beautiful View

We loved the condo and have stayed there in the past. The view and privacy is the best. Thanks for sharing your paradise with us. Mahalo

Garden Paradise

We loved the condo with the amazing view of the ocean. The condo was spacious with modern updates. The grounds were beautiful and well-manicured. The pools were clean with plenty of pool side furniture. We had an amazing time with our family and would highly recommend this place! less

— Chris, Stayed 11/09/2023

Great place to stay

This was a great place to stay. The view is amazing and the proximity to things we were doing was perfect. The condo is exactly as represented and actually more spacious than it appears on line. The lint trap in the dryer doesn’t fully depress and absolutely DESTROYED two of our garments! Beware of this! I would recommend this condo. less

— Stacie, Stayed 09/19/2023

lovely condo - pleasant stay

My husband and I have stayed at Kanaloa at Kona complex many times and every condo was beautiful and unique. This condo had everything - good air conditioner - comfortable beds and TV's that were easy to figure out. It also was on the first floor. Nothing better than to not have to lug luggage and groceries up flights of stairs. Also, the area is very close to shopping and the Kona golf course. We saw fantastic sunsets and sunrises every day. We would recommend this condo to anyone who wants a nice place to relax and enjoy their time in PARADISE less

— NANCY, Stayed 05/31/2023

Amazing memories

Condo #3601 was awesome for our group of 4. Larry was very accommodating when we needed to change our reservation a couple of time (6 months in advance). Very nice.

— Nancy, Stayed 05/15/2023

Kona 3602

We stayed 3 weeks in November lovely condo clean, beds and pillows were comfortable. The view is unbelievable watching all the action of the bay. Very quiet and peaceful setting. Thank you for sharing your paradise with us.

— Sharon, Stayed 12/04/2022

Waterfront island condo

The pictures provided of the condo accurately show the island decor of the condo which provides plenty of space for four adults. The lanai provides a peaceful place for breakfast while you enjoy a beautiful waterfront view. The beach chairs, umbrella and small cooler were convenient to use. While we ate most of our meals out, we did use the toaster, coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. All were in working order. The only negative was occasionally we heard footsteps of the neighbors in the condo above. All in all, we would definitely stay here again! less

— James, Stayed 09/12/2022

Couldn't Have Been Better

The condo is in excellent condition, modest but well-kept. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots, pans, silverware etc. The owner responded immediately to an issue with the TV. We always stay at Kanaloa because the whole resort is quiet (hard to believe it has 167 units), beautifully maintained, it's greener than the coast N of Kona, staff are friendly, supermarket just up the street, Farmer's Market every Weds (at Outrigger) and Saturday (at shopping center)... just The Best. This unit is a great reflection of that excellence and we had a lovely time there. Now, if they'd just cut down the 2 palm trees down by the water's edge so that the view across the bay were better... but that's a trivial issue. less

— Robert, Stayed 04/15/2022

A Great Stay

Everything we'd hoped for after reading prior glowing reviews: a well appointed, spotlessly clean condo, with clear instructions for pool access, parking, etc. Superb views from the lanai, day or night, including surfers, impressive wave action, nighttime manta ray tour boat lights and activity, etc. Great waterside hikes in both directions. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, outdoor chairs and snorkel equipment. 3 pools to choose from, none crowded. A real winner! less

— Steve, Stayed 01/29/2022

Lanai is Paradise

This condo has everything we needed. The view from the lanai was amazing. The ocean is right there! My husband surfed, our girls swam endlessly in 2 of the 3 pools on the site. I would say this condo had one of the best locations of all the property because you can see sunrises, sunsets and the Heiea Bay (some don’t get a ocean view). Also close to the grocery store and just a few blocks from epic snorkeling. We are already planning how to have our extended family rent another unit when we come back to this specific condo. We went at a no busy time but perhaps the only downside would be that if many condos were rented you could hear loud neighbors upstairs or outside since it is such close quarters. But that’s kinda what happens in any condo or apartment. less

— Amy, Stayed 01/22/2022

Very nice!

Very nice condo. We really enjoyed eating our meals on the secluded deck. Views of the cove and sunrise over the hill were spectacular. Master bedroom was comfortable with a large closet and shower. Plenty of hangers were supplied. Walking distance to the shopping center and restaurants. Kitchen had all necessary appliances. The cove is just a short walk away and has very good snorkeling. We saw many fish, I even saw a large shark. Nice selection of movies, books, games and beach supplies. less

— Jayne, Stayed 01/11/2022

Wonderful Stay!

We had a wonderful stay for 6 nights in #3601 in mid August. The unit is spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything was very clean and in working order. The view from the lanai is amazing! Our favorite spot for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening! The kitchen was well equipped, and it was nice to have beach chairs and towels. There was also snorkel gear available and a small cooler which we made use of. We paid extra for use of the AC and were glad that we did. We had stayed in this complex 6 years ago and were happy to see that the whole place has been well maintained. The location is very quiet and the grounds are beautiful! We especially love the oceanfront pool at sunset. We hope to return again soon! less

— Janine, Stayed 08/26/2021

So nice!

This condo worked great for our family vacation. From the location, to the beach gear and cooler, to the space and cleanliness, we were very happy with our decision to rent this condo. We would happily return.

— Dana, Stayed 07/14/2021

3601 Kanaloa at Kona

We stayed 18 days in unit 3601. The condo has been updated with a new washer/dryer, carpeting in the living room and bedrooms, and new tile floors. We have stayed at Kanaloa many times over the past 30 years in different condos. 3601 is by far the best. The owner has the unit well stocked with everything from toilet paper to every kitchen utensil you could possible need. The coffee pot urn developed a crack while we were there. The owner had a new one at the front door the next morning. The unit was very clean and the furniture was in good shape. The housekeeper came midterm of the visit and was thorough cleaning all the rooms. The bed was the most comfortable one I've had at Kanaloa. The view is oceanfront and bay view. We loved the bay view. There were people snorkeling every day and we snorkeled there several times. When we go back, we will contact the owner and hope the unit is available. less

— Patricia, Stayed 06/25/2021

Fantastic place

This was a fantastic place to stay. The price was reasonable, the condo was amazing. Views of the water and lovely sounds of surf from the balcony. The condo had everything we needed to cook, relax and even do a load of laundry. Check in was a breeze and the woman at the desk was very kind and patient. We would definitely stay again! less

— Jennifer , Stayed 06/06/2021

Wonderful stay in a Beautiful Condo

We had a wonderful stay at the Kanaloa Condo #3601! The Condo is beautifully furnished and is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay in Hawaii - from beach towels, chairs and coolers to all the accoutrements in the kitchen. The view from the lanai onto the bay next door is beautiful and, unlike other units we have stayed in, the sound of the waves coming ashore is very subtle and did not disturb. We would highly recommend this unit and hope to stay there again. less

— Eleanor Freeman, Stayed 02/22/2021

Condo review

Wonder peaceful setting we enjoyed it so much the weather was perfect. Thank you the condo was clean and everything we needed was there. We will return.

— Glen , Stayed 12/14/2020

Excellent Condo, Fantastic Views

My husband and I did a stay-cation at this condo for our 20th wedding anniversary. We live on the Big Island and because of Covid-19 decided to cancel our trip to Oregon where we had planned to celebrate. Where this condo is situated was so peaceful and the view of the ocean amazing. We spent a lot of time on the lanai watching our locals kayak, swim, and paddle board. We went for a relaxing stay so it was nice to sit on the lanai and just listen to the birds and surf rolling in. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms. The master bedroom is huge and has a desk area my husband used for a computer Zoom meeting. There’s a good sized grocery store close by. During normal times this condo is ideally located near so many attractions, great ocean-view restaurants and fun activities. Over the years living here we have done many stay-cations and this condo was one of the very best we enjoyed. We will book it again. less

— L. Campbell, Stayed 07/30/2020

Paradise on the bay...

Perfect location. Spacious. Private. Peaceful. Gorgeous view of the bay From the huge lanai. Pools were killer— especially the one oceanside. Stellar sunset view location. Beach gear. Comfy beds. Not a single complaint, except our time went by too fast!

— DON, Stayed 12/25/2019

Fantastic accomodations

This is our 4th time at Kanaloa, and our first at 3601. Definitely the best condo we've had there. Very private, the view of the little bay is wonderful - when the swells were coming in fun to see surfers and boogie boarders out there. The condo is very well appointed, and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, and a lot of condiments! We cooked almost every night and were not lacking for anything. The master bed very comfortable, the showers were great, and the A/C worked well. The pools were close and not crowded. The supermarket is right up the hill (great farmers market there on Saturday AM), snorkeling and surfing at Kahalu'u is only 5 minutes away, and paddle boards can be rented at the sheraton across Keahou bay. The only minor niggle was the lack of overhead lighting on the lanai, which made dinner a little dark despite candlelight. Otherwise, a fantastic stay and would definitely go back! less

— Tom, Stayed 11/29/2019

Kanaloa 3601

Overall, this property is very adequate for a stay in Kanaloa. The location is wonderful with the view from the lanai of the cove and out to the ocean. Watching the colorful lights of the Mantaray boats every evening was a special treat. Kanaloa is close to shopping which has a trolley to Kona if one does not want to tackle the traffic. The shopping center has lovely eating places, a multi screen theater, and an Urgent Care provider to mention several. The washer/dryer in the unit was great to have, the TV in the main room was most welcomed (didn't use the TVs in the bedrooms), beds were very comfortable and furnishings maintained the Hawaiian theme. One of the reviews I had read stated that the place needed a "deep" cleaning and although it didn't stop me from staying at 3601, I would definitely agree. I have stayed at many condos on the Hawaiian Islands and have found that all had a "Welcome" bag with local fruits and/or Kona coffee, cookies etc. and one leaves a $50.00 gift card to the local grocery store. With food prices as they are in the Islands, this is a very nice touch. Condo 3601 did not have a "Welcome" bag/basket. Although, soaps, shampoos, and body lotions are provided they appear to be left over from the last guest and are from Costco. I also had to purchase dishwasher soap and kleenex as I found that the supply left was not adequate for our needs. Further, I would suggest that the cupboard with all the leftover boxed products that had been opened, but not emptied should be tossed. Many of the items left in the refrigerator, should be checked for expiration dates and duplicates removed. Since, we have been to the Big Island many times and have done all the tourist visits, we spend a lot of time at the Resort pools (lovely) and in the Condo. So many of the issues I had would probably not be an issue for guests who are on the go doing all the tourist activities available. As a final note, Condo 3601 is well priced. Mahalo and Aloha less

— Kitt, Stayed 11/19/2019

Owner/Manager Response

Thank you for your feedback regarding our condo 3601. I will forward this review to our cleaner and send my daughter over tomorrow to evaluate these concerns. Mahalo

The view

The view from inside and on the Lani of kanaloa 3601 is absolutely beautiful. It was beautifully decorated and very spacious, comfy beds and nice bathrooms. The parking is close. We loved everything about 3601. Thank you Larry and Jeanne.

— valerie, Stayed 09/20/2019

The lanai is FABULOUS but the condo needs a good deep cleaning

Our family of 4 (two teen boys) stayed for 4 nights in July 2019. Good things: * The lanai was fantastic for morning coffee, meals and any down time we had. * The updated showers are ample and clean. * We were able to check in at 1pm after checking with their local contact, a very nice touch since we arrived to the island at 11am from mainland and its a long travel day! Needs improvement: * the king bed in the master sags * there is mildew/mold in the grout around the kitchen and bathroom sinks * overall the condo was dark, not sure how the photos were taken showing so much light * dishwasher soap dispenser does not open causing double washings * the washing machine liner and soap dispenser were full of mold/mildew and had a strong smell * all bath towels we received smelled musty/mildew (vrbo reviews from 2018 show this as well) * the master bedroom never cooled off despite a ceiling fan and oscillating fan running 24/7 ***** I texted these issues to the owner but did not receive a reply. ***** The community is awesome, great pools and really cool cliffs where the ocean hits. The ocean pool is awesome for sunsets. less

— Tonya, Stayed 07/24/2019

Beautifully updated condo, perfect location

Beautiful updated condo, new carpet, clean, wonderfully furnished, and faces Heeia Bay – which has become our favorite location within the Kanaloa complex. More tranquil than facing the open water yet remains open to the trade winds. The owners take pride in their condo and genuinely care about the quality of their guest’s stay. This will be the first place we look when booking our next trip to Kona. less

— Pete, Stayed 05/28/2019

Great rental

This condo is great for many reasons, location, view, large floor plan, peacefulness. Our second time there and will be back. Pools are wonderful, the one closest to condo was perfect with hardly anyone ever there. New shower in master, both baths are large. Lanai is our spot to watch the ocean and boat activity nightly. Aloha to Larry and Kaleo. less

— Patricia, Stayed 05/13/2019

Absolutely stunning oceanview from balcony!

My husband and I stayed in this unit as part of our honeymoon stay on the big island and the oceanview from the balcony was worth it alone! The condo was so clean and beautiful. It was only the two of us so was quite big for a 2 bedroom but we spent all our time on the beautiful balcony overlooking an ocean cove. We will definitely be back if were able to visit the big island again. less

— Danielle, Stayed 03/19/2019

Beautiful view

Comfortable 2BR condo. As pictured. Loved the ocean view from lanai and living room. Had all the glassware, plates, etc. we needed. Towels lovely. Lots of space. Did not care for the carpet. Think there was a lot of dust/mold due to folks bringing in sand, etc. Both my daughter and I had a lot of allergy responses (runny nose/ itchy eyes) due to the mold/ dust. Would recommend it. less

— Sara, Stayed 01/12/2019

01derful !

Our week in 3601 was wonderful. Can’t beat the view from the deck, ocean and bay with entertaining birds and surfers. Immaculate and comfortable furnishings. Convenient, quiet location. We shall return!

— Fran, Stayed 12/07/2018

Great accomodations!

We truly enjoyed our stay in unit 3601 at Kanaloa at Kona. The location immediately inside the gate is very convenient. The view of the cove and sounds of the ocean were breathtaking! I'm glad we paid for the airconditioning, as it was pretty hot and humid and we would have been uncomfortable without it. The convenience of the nearby shopping center with several good restaurants and grocery store was really nice. Everything inside the condo was well maintained and we found everything we needed for trips to the beach, including some beach chairs and a cooler. My only feedback is that it might be time to get some new bath towels as they smell a little funky. There was an ample supply of extra towels, but after even just one shower the mildewy smell returns. I know it is hard to keep towels fresh in the humidity. Thanks for the wonderful place to stay! less

— Jenny, Stayed 10/21/2018


We enjoyed our stay at Kanaloa 3601. The view was beautiful. It was a very well equipped condo, we lacked for nothing. We hope to stay again in the near future.

— Vincent, Stayed 10/14/2018

Fab condo!

Fabulous condo was in a great location for us. Away from the Kona core and steps away from Keahou Bay and a terrific little beach just outside the gates of Kanaloa. The view is a great combo of water and mountain. I didn't quite believe it on previous reviews but that's what it is. It doesn't look out over the vastness of ocean but has constant interest. A well appointed condo with all the stuff you'd need for a great holiday. Massive master bedroom and a reasonable second bedroom with 2 singles for our friends. The shared BBCue was a 1 min walk away and worked like a charm with no waiting. The oceanside pool was a gem. Twice we had friends visit and they were also very impressed...and envious. Well appointed shopping centre very close by which meant we didn't have to head into town except when we really wanted. We'd absolutely go back to this condo at Kanaloa. Fabulous! less

Iona Vacation 2018

Our vacations are a joy when we stay with you. It is nice after a busy day adventuring on the island,to come “home”. We have stayed with you #3601, for two summer vacations and are consistently pleased with the accomadations. If our time permits, we plan on a repeat next year! less

— April. Nichol, Stayed 08/30/2018


Breath-taking views. Waves breaking on the shore was so relaxing. Exceeded our expectations. It was an excellent place to stay.

— Louis, Stayed 04/11/2018

Most Beautiful View

I could have just sat on the lania the whole time. The unit was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. Enjoyed all the beach-going equipment. The kitchen was fully stocked with spices, oils, etc. and all the equipment needed. We enjoyed the games and cards, viewed some videos, but did not take advantage of the CD's and player. The condo really has everything. I will certainly be booking it in the future. Oh, the grounds and pool areas were immaculate. My personal complaint was the the master bed seems to be in need of replacement. Hard as a rock! Didn't work for me. less

— John, Stayed 03/27/2018

Excellent accommodations!

We have stayed at Kanaloa many times. This was our first experience In a ground floor condo. We were THRILLED with the well stocked unit, new floors in main areas and one updated bathroom, the view of the bay, the speed with which any enquiries were dealt with and we anticipate returning. Bedroom carpeting could do with removal or ‘refreshing’. Otherwise, a fantastic location and unit! less

— John and Christine, Stayed 03/22/2018

Terrific Stay - Great Condo - Great Owners

Our family of 4 stayed in this condo for 5 days just before Christmas. The condo was clean and in great condition. The furnished lanai was wonderful -- the view was spectacular -- we preferred the bay + ocean view and view up the hill of this condo to the strictly oceanfront view that another family travelling with us had. The condo owners included several beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler that we were able to use. Condo had plenty of dishes, pots/pans, coffeemaker, dishwasher, towels. Appreciated the special touches leaving us some basic supplies like tp, paper towels, laundry and dishwasher soap, etc. Condo owners also included a notebook of guidance and suggestions as well as a notebook of restaurant menus that were very helpful. Located in what seemed like a quiet condo complex where you could walk or run if desired. Very short drive to "the fishbowl" for snorkeling or "magic sands" beach as well as the beachfront of central Kona. Very nice oceanfront pool and jacuzzi we used which offered a great view of the sunset every evening, plus a separate adult pool (not oceanfront) that we did not use. Tennis courts available on site. We paid for the air conditioning to be on which was useful even though we were staying in winter (December). Would highly recommend this rental. less

— Paul, Stayed 01/02/2018

Repeat guestd

This was our second stay in 3601, and our ninth trip to the Big Island. We particularly enjoy this complex for the balance of luxury and affordability. This unit has been upgraded since our last stay. The new floors and remodled bath are lovely. We have found 3601 to be nicely equipped with the lanai view being a big plus. The kitchen is always well stocked with spices and cooking items. A stop at Costco allows us to cook most of our meals for a week-long stay. I’d be cautious with the pot & pans as some inconsiderate guests have damaged the tephlone coating over the years. Our activities on the island includ snorkeling, scuba diving, zip lining (Hawaii Forest & Trail), star gazing on Mauna Kea (book the tour, don’t do this drive at night as the island is very dark after nightfall), and lounging. This complex has three pools. The ocean pool is incredible. In the event kids are at play and you wish for quiet, there are two other pool options incluing an adult only pool. Our reservation was handled as you would expect. No issues with check in our during our stay. less

— Heather, Stayed 12/12/2017

Return visit

We have stayed in many of the condos in this complex over the years, and 3601 is one of our favorites. Well appointed, clean, and nicely tucked into the bay with great views of the boats that come in early evening for the manta ray excursions. The location is also convenient to Kona, and activities north and south of Kona for beaches, snorkeling, and other sight seeing. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking which we enjoy doing after a day of activities. I would recommend this condo as a great deal! less

— Joan Wasser, Stayed 11/15/2017

A piece of heaven

We loved the view and the available space of this property. It was very clean and well stocked. It was great sitting out and watching the surfers. When we plan our next trip to the Big Island we will definitely looking to see if this property is available. Thank you less

Perfect Big Island Launch Pad with killer view

We loved this condo from the moment we walked in! The view of Hei'a bay from the lana'i is so lovely. We enjoyed the great snorkeling and stand up paddle boarding in the bay. The condo is very well equipped with kitchen items/condiments, beach towels/accessories, and bath products, which I appreciate having stayed in many island condos over the years. The location was great for accessing Kona and Captain Cook. We also used the complex's common pools, grill, and ping pong table. It was also easy to communicate with the owner and manager via email. I would definitely stay here again! I want my own Kanaloa Condo :) less

Excellent get away vacation

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kona ,and will be back again. This is our third stay in the Kanaloa @Kona resort complex. Our condo was well equipped and felt like home when we walked in. The 24 hour security is a plus, really made my husband happy as he was unable to come on this trip. Our family has visited Hawaii many times and we've stayed in multiple condos. This is our favorite site ,and we certainly will return for another fun and relaxing vacation. less

— April, Stayed 06/21/2017

sooooo relaxing

Recently had our 3rd stay at this condo, and it never ceases to amaze us. The view from the lanai is spectacular. We eat all our meals there. Love the sights and sounds. Each subsequent stay here is longer than the previous one (2 weeks and counting!). Stocked with everything we need other than groceries. Owner and local manager are both very accommodating and make this such a pleasant experience. We highly recommend this property to our family and friends. less

Great condo and location!

We rented 3601for 35days. Very comfortable and large unit. Kitchen was well stocked and had pantry items galore. The bay view is better than direct ocean front and protects from hot sunsets that can heat up the house. Used a/c during end of trip, was muggy but was great in am. Grounds are super, Kaleo was wonderful helping us with things. Thanks Larry we will want to come back, aloha Pat. less

Great condo

We stayed for 17 days ( still not enough time) we loved your condo. We have stayed at probably six or seven other units in the complex and yours was one of the nicest. I can't believe finally a condo with sharp knives. I like to cook and your kitchen was well set up. We had a problem with the sink but your manager was fantastic about getting a new faucet put in. All the views from the lanai were great. Watching surfers in the morning while eating breakfast. I tried to book for next year but it was already taken. We will book again thanks. less

Hate to share this secret!

Wow! What a wonderful condo!! We were lucky enough to stay at Kanaloa at Kona in condo 3601 for 4 nights in February and we just couldn't ask for a better experience. First off, the view of the cove and ocean are just incredible and we spent hours on the beautiful lanai just enjoying the ocean. We are 2 senior couples and the condo worked out perfectly as we each had our own large bedroom and bathroom for privacy and then the spacious living area and lanai when we wanted more togetherness. This condo is nicely furnished and has everything (plus) you need for your stay. It was great that so many condiments, seasonings, oils, etc were available too. I recommend you check out the pantry and fridge before you go to the grocery store or you will be buying items that the gracious host & previous tenants have already provided for you. Our correspondence with Aloha Condos and Larry the owner, was always quick and complete and we really appreciated the thorough information provided. We highly recommend condo 3601 and hope our sharing of this secret location won't make it so popular that it won't be available for our next trip to Kona.

Great Vacation

Our family had a fantastic vacation at Kanaloa, Condo 3601. The unit, view, and amenities were great and we look forward to visiting again.

Another wonderful stay

What a beautiful condo -- what a great visit. This was our second stay in this lovely condo. We love the view, we love the well furnished kitchen. we love relaxing in the evening with DVD's or with games. We had some great snorkeling at Two-Step. We tried the Farmer/Artisan market at the Sheraton next door. Great trip! less

Pretty sure you won't post this but you should know

My husband and I stayed at your condo for 10 days in july. Unfortunely that's also when a painting crew was scheduled to paint our condo. Come monday morning we had men at our windows scraping the wood and preparing for the days work. Next thing we knew they were on the deck. Needless to say we weren't happy with the lack of privacy and called the management to help. It took two days, but finally they left us in peace and came back on our final day there. The place needs some upgrading and the cockroaches were a problem in the master bath. I think we'll try a newer condo next time. less

Beware of Dishonest Owner

We arrived on July 8, 2016 and there were signs up stating that building 3600 was going to be painted during our entire stay. When we walked up to the front door it was covered in paper along with the windows and the painters were in the process of painting 3601. Fortunately the owners representative was still in the condo and talked to the painters. We were assureds they would not be painting 3601 until after we left. Unfortunately the painters stored all their equipment on the side of our lanai and would start work at 8 a.m. constantly walking by the lanai. We were forced to keep the windows closed and blinds drawn during our entire stay to maintain our privacy. We couldn’t eat out on the lanai because of the loud noise, paint fumes and dust. One day they painted the upstairs lanai and enshrouded our entire lanai in plastic. The next day they started sanding our lanai. When I returned home I contacted the owner and asked for some compensation for the major disturbances during our stay and this was his reply: “During our time on the island in May a met with other owners who buildings had been painted. They reported that they were renting their units and their was only minor inconveniences to guests during the painting. We did recommend that if for any reason you were not happy with 3601 that you move to another unit and we would refund your money. You elected to stay in 3601 instead. Therefor we are not going to refund your money after your stay. “ I was shocked because this never happened. We were never offered a move to another unit. He also disclosed that he knew the condo was going to be painted in May 2016 yet chose not to tell us! I can assure you I never would have rented his condo if I knew the building was going to be painted. I have asthma and the paint fumes and dust made it worse. No other guests were staying in building 3600 during our stay which makes me think those owners were honest and disclosed the painting to potential guests. As for the condo it is very dated. The Master bathroom is very dated and the shower door doesn’t close and the grout is in need of professional cleaning. The kitchen refrigerator door felt like it was going to fall off every time I opened it. The ice doesn’t come out the ice dispenser and the ice freezes. We were advised to use a hair dryer to melt the ice! The best part of the condo is the lanai. Unfortunately we were unable to enjoy it. There are other rentals in this complex. My advice is to choose another. less

— Leslie, Stayed 07/29/2016

Owner/Manager Response

The painters do not work for us. We did know that the building was scheduled to be painted in July but did not know the actual days the 3601 exterior was to be painted. Our island manager made every effort to accommodate these guests, including a refund if they moved to another condo.


We can't say enough good things about our stay at 3601 Kanaloa. For us, it was just perfect and exceeded our expectations. We loved the view of the small bay, enjoyed listing to the crashing waves, and loved watching the activity of the distant harbor (which was an easy 10 minute walk from the condo). We could see the boats paddle out into the ocean, and there was just enough activity to watch to peak our interest, but at the same time be relaxing and it did not take away from the simple beauty of the water. The facility amenities were great with 3 pools, an Oceanside pool, adult pool and a 3rd pool we never got to try out. We even got to sit in the hot tub which was great. As far as the condo, we absolutely loved it. It was so comfortable, tastefully decorated, packed full of everything you could need for your vacation (a cooler, beach bag, beach towels, noodles and boogie boards). It really felt like home, only much better! The living area was spacious and the condo was well ventilated. The unit had a great cross breeze being next to the water, and we were just so comfortable. The only downfall was we stayed only 6 nights/7 days, and we really should have stayed at least 10 days. Once we got to the island there was so much to do, and it was such a wonderful place to stay we wished we stayed longer. I guess there is always next year! We really loved our stay here, thank you so much for sharing your great home with us. less

Just lovely

We stayed at Kanaloa for one week in April. It was a last minute decision for us and we were very pleased to find such a lovely place on short notice. 3601 has to be one of the nicest rentals at the resort because of the privacy and wonderful ocean views.With so much activity on the water with canoers and surfers, we were never bored. The condo was well furnished and very well equipped. Better than average for sure. The pools were quiet, sunsets glorious. Location near shopping centre , beaches and golf course, was great. I would definitely give 5 stars. less

Kanaloa 3601

We have stayed at Kanaloa a number of times. This was by far the nicest unit we have been in. The décor was beautiful and since we both enjoy cooking it was superbly equipped for that. It was very spacious with great views and surf to lull you to sleep. All the employees were extremely helpful when we needed something-airline boarding passes etc. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Rich/Diane VandeNoord less

Excellent Accomodation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We stayed in unit #3601 for two night in February 2016 and absolutely loved it. The unit was very clean and the location was wonderful. The ocean waves were so nice at night and cooled the rooms down at night. Very quiet location lots of swimming pools to use. The unit had a wonderfully stocked kitchen and the furniture was comfortable the master bed was super soft if you use the foam topper in the closet. The bathrooms are older but functional and clean. I would definey stay there again for a longer term. The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond. I would give this place 5 stars!! 👍 less

Great oceanfront condo

This was a great condo. Beautifully decorated, very spacious, very well supplied kitchen. Huge master suite. Very easy entrance, close parking. Best of all is the view and sound of the ocean, from the lanai! The location of the whole complex couldn't have been better. Sunsets from the ocean pool were awesome! The grounds are beautifully landscaped, staff helpful and friendly. Will definitely want to stay here next year. Thank you Larry for sharing your home with us.

2nd time just as great

This was the second time my husband and I have stayed in this condo. We like the open layout and quiet location. Our daughter and son-in-law joined us this time and they were just as pleased with everything. My husband likes the ice maker and I never moved from the lanai. The kitchen is well stocked and this year they added a TV in the master bedroom if you wanted it. We prefer the sound of the waves. We all plan on going back next year. I hate to give a review in case we cannot get a reservation. less

Everything you need

We enjoyed our stay at 3601 unit very much. The views from the living room was outstanding. The unit is very clean and has everything you need.

We highly recommend this place for those who like a peaceful vacation in a beautiful area. Thanks Larry for sharing your home. less

Best vacation ever!

We stayed in this condo on vacation with our two young adult children, for 5 nights. The condo itself was beautiful - spacious and well equipped. The decor was homelike - truly lovely, not just make-do. It was like staying in a friend's place -- everything we needed was there: folding chairs and towels to take to the beach, a cooler; the kitchen had the things we needed for cooking; the ice maker worked. The view from the lanai is just as pictured, and we ate every breakfast and when we were home, lunches there. The resort pools looked great, but we preferred the natural beauties of Hawaii. There's great snorkeling a scant 5 minutes away at Kahaluu Beach Park. We also drove about half an hour to Honaunau Bay, which was even better. Our family also enjoyed the wi-fi, and the collection of DVDs to watch in the evenings. We hope to return -- I highly recommend this condo. less

Wonderful week in Kanaloa 3601

This property was recommended to us by friends who had previously stayed in the unit and it did not disappoint. Kanaloa 3601 was clean, well appointed and convenient. The updated kitchen was well stocked with staples like spices, oils. Our favourite part of the unit was the lanai which catches the morning sun and has roller shades to keep the sun out if you like. We spent every morning on the lanai watching the boats leave the bay and paddlers explore. The beds were comfortable and the amenities in the complex were great. Our kids spent many hours in both the ocean and main pools. We had a wonderful week in Kanaloa 3601 and would return to it and recommend it to friend without hesitation. less

Tranquil Hideaway

My husband and came to Kona to decompress after our daughter's large wedding. The condo sits away from the main hustle and bustle of the resort with a great view of the bay and the Sheraton and out to the ocean. We only left the unit to snorkel and to a church service. The kitchen was well stocked and I was really impressed with the quality of the knives; best in any condo we've stayed. Only wish that there was a hot pot or a tea kettle. Rooms are large and airy and enjoyed just doing nothing. It is really private and nice that you cannot see any other neighbors. We could not hear anyone on the second level. My husband was impressed with the ice maker. Most places we stay do not have ice. There is a paper box located near the main pool. Tennis courts are in good condition and the three pools make it convenient for everyone. This is our second stay in the resort and will return to this unit. less

Perfect Stay in Paradise!

This condo recently changed ownership. It was highly regarded when owned by the former couple, and the new owner has not skipped a beat. He is responsive, kind, and very helpful. We were due to leave the day that Tropical Storm Iselle was to make landfall. Our flight was canceled and we called to extend our stay. Mr Shook arranged for our extra day of stay and also had backup plans for another place to stay if our trip was further extended by plane issues. This particular unit is beautiful, very clean, and has all the extras that you'd want to enhance your trip. The view is incredible, overlooking a small bay. The sound of the crashing waves is music to our souls. The location of the complex is within walking distance of the piers where some great boat outings launch from. The employees on site were extremely helpful and kind. George, especially, was always someone we hoped to see at the entrance. This is my husband's and my third trip to the Big Island. This was, by far, our favorite place to stay. We will be strongly recommending Kanaloa at Kona, and specifically unit 3601. Following are some things you won't need to bring or purchase thanks to a well stocked home: High efficiency washing machine soap, boogie boards, any cooking or eating utensil you could possibly need, kitchen staples, and a cooler. There are games, puzzles, and movies to keep people occupied (especially parents while teen girls are primping--and teen girls while parents are sleeping!) The ceiling fans were quiet and very effective. I highly recommend the air conditioning in the summer (although we would personally get it no matter what time of year it was). I believe that if you're looking at condos then you are looking for a quieter and homier experience. You will not find a condo that fits the bill more than this one. Mahalo Mr. Shook and Kanaloa at Kona for making us feel like ohana!! less

Beautiful condo, beautiful view, beautiful vacation

This was our third stay at Kanaloa at Kona resort. This condo was perfect for us. It is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. There is a good view from the Lanai of the water and various activities that go on there, such as boating, surfing, etc. Amenities galore, such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, fruit basket, water sports gear. Property location is great, away from crowds and traffic, right on ocean, 3 pools, bbqs, tennis. Stores nearby. Booking was seamless and simple.

Outstanding abode for a trip to Kona!

This place was home for us for a week during our recent trip to the big island in October. The location of this particular condo is extremely convenient to the entrance, the pool and clubhouse,tennis courts, bbq grill, etc. The view of the bay just below the lanai can't be beat, and provides a nice breeze and the great sounds of the ocean just outside your door. The unit itself was fully stocked with everything you could need down to the smallest details- kitchen stuff, bathroom stuff, washer/dryer, laundry soap, shampoo, etc. you name it. just show up with your bags and enjoy! The beds were comfortable and the two twins in the 2nd bedroom slide together to create another king sized bed- which was helpful for my brother and sister in law who joined us. we had 4 people in our party and the condo was spacious enough for all of us. The one thing that could have been a bit better is the functioning of the a/C unit. It may need servicing. It seemed to have a mind of it's own, sometimes working, sometimes not, even with all doors and windows closed. Overall though- this place is great- beats the heck out of staying at a high priced resort. less

Owner/Manager Response

We're sorry that you had some difficulty with the AC during your recent visit. We came in two days after your departure and have used the AC ourselves almost every day since with no problem. It was last serviced May 2013, but we are having it looked at again anyway. For future reference our unit manager, Kaleo, may be called at any time there is an appliance malfunction. There is no charge for this service. We want our guests to enjoy a perfectly carefree vacation whenever they stay with us. Stewart Berkshire, Owner

Best rental of our vacation!

We had a great stay at Kanaloa at Kana, at the end of a quite street with a guard stand at the entrance. The main pool is crystal clear & the area had a resort feel - ping pong & tennis court easily accessible. Covered parking, a bit tight if you have a big car, well maintained, clean & safe. Outside our unit there was fresh banana, lime & mango trees filled with ripe fruits. Booking arrangements where super easy - Chuck at aloha Condos did all the work & emailed us everything we needed to know. The condos are close to everything which is another plus. Unit 3601 was perfect. This is a large 2 bedroom, 2 bath, unit. There was nothing we could want for. The owners made us feel like family having had so many amenities available to us. The stack washer/dryer came in handy allowing us to pack lite, plenty of linens, pillows, towels (bath&pool;) in great condition. Laundry & dish detergent was available, showers had a fresh bars & liquid soap & shampoo/conditioners in the showers. The pantry had plenty of stocked food items that made cooking in the unit very easy without having to buy all the little ingredients. They have all kind of kitchen trinkets/gadgets availble to use - even a coffee grinder to grind the fresh coffee beans that came in a welcome basket filled with fresh local fruit, jellies & crackers. Seriously it was like renting from family with all the little extra's, they really go that extra mile. The floors &rug; where clean, furnishings all new, up to date with that tropical beach flair, the beds are very comfortable & the Wifi is lighting fast! Plenty of outlets to charge all our Iphones /Ipads at night. The Lani was just amazing with the view of an ocean cove, complete with a wet bar & ceiling fan, we could sit for hours listening to the gentle slap of the ocean and the breeze thru the palm trees. We chose to have air conditioning during our stay and it made us very comfortable especially to sleep. I would recommend this option if you stay in august. less

We enjoyed very much our stay in condo 3601 in Kanaloa at Kona. The condo is nicely furnished and extremely well equiped. We felt at home right away. We very much appreciated the gift basket with local specialties at our arrival as well as all the little extras like the list of restaurants, the snorkeling gear, soap, shower gel, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. (other owners don't supply everything!). The view from the lanai is wonderful and we saw turtles while snorkeling in the little bay. less

Owner/Manager Response

We’re so glad you had a great stay in our condo and enjoyed the outstanding view from our lanai. Although we have owned this unit for many years, we are still enchanted by it ourselves. As you discovered, the condo is provided with many unexpected amenities so that our guests can enjoy as carefree a vacation as possible without having to rent or buy items that will only be used during the short time they are visiting. We’re awfully sorry our new washer and dryer gave you a hard time, though. It seems that today’s manufacturers love to dazzle us with new models that seem to require an advanced degree to operate. We do have a book of manuals of operation for all appliances and electronics in the unit. This is located on the kitchen shelf right next to other information books, or you could call Kaleo, our local condo manager. He would be happy to walk you through the process. He’s very good at answering any need or question you may have about our condo. Thanks for staying with us. Betty and Stewart Berkshire, Owners

An outstanding, peaceful place to stay right on the ocean

The condo was exceptionally clean, comfortable and well appointed to accomodate our five-person family. The lanai overlooked a bay of the ocean and was a delightftul place to have breakfast or read and relax. The kitchen was well appointed and the dishwasher and clothes washer and drier were very useful. An amplitude of towels, renewed daily, and of beach towels were supplied. The whole area was secure and safe to walk around in and enjoy the pools and the beach. less

Absolute perfection!

The condo and complex was everything we expected! The condo is exactly as you see in the video tour. It is beautifully decorated and immaculate. The condo is very private and even sitting on the lanai it seems as if the view is yours alone. It is plenty large for a family of four. The walk-in closets and large bathrooms were a bonus. Our girls, ages 18 and 21, commented that they loved the condo and location so much they would be willing to give up their separate rooms at home to live in this condo! Getting to the condo was easy thanks to the directions provided by Chuck. Check-in was a breeze. There was a wonderful basket of fresh fruit, jams, and Kona coffee from the local farmers market to greet our arrival. We can't even express how fabulous it was to eat breakfast on the lanai each morning and listen to the waves and watch the boats, kayakers, and snorkelers. Everything you could want is provided for in the condo and then some. In addition to all the snorkel and beach gear, there was a small ice chest and ice packs and even binoculars for taking in all the beautiful views. It was also very convenient to shopping, with a farmer's market on Saturday morning (there is another a bit farther on Wednesday). We highly recommend this condo! less

We will rent 3601 again

This was our 6th time at Kanaloa over the past 7 yrs and all but once on the ocean. Unit 3601 is our favorite so far. The lanai faces a small bay that often had great wave action with lots of surfers to watch.There were snorkelers when the bay was quiet. The approach to the entry is very private and at ground level. Very nice landscaping. We like the floor plan of the --01 units. This unit was very clean,attractive,well equipped with updated kitchen.When we came in there was a basket of goodies waiting for us, a nice touch. We opted for a/C but could have done without. The unit building is immediately to the left of the property's entry gate and has dedicated covered parking as well as some open spots for visitors Everything worked,there is wi-fi and snorkel, beach towels, umbrella,etc available. Kanaloa property has 3 sets of pools,hot tubs,barbeques,changing rooms as well as lighted tennis courts and is over all quite attractive. It's close to markets,dining and golf. We had a good 3 weeks less

A home away from home

I loved the video tour because the condo was exactly the way you saw it. There was great communication and ease in going into the property. The home was warm and comfy with a view of a small bay. All the amenities were excellent and everything worked. I liked the location and view the best. The only thing is with 2 adults,not married, we needed a double bed in the other room in lieu of two twins. However, for a family or people who don't mind twin beds, this unit is ideal less

Owner/Manager Response

We're happy that you enjoyed your stay in our condo while visiting Hawaii. However, we regret that you were dissatisfied with the twin bed setup. Under "Features and Amenities" our website offers the option of having either twin beds or a king-size bed in the guest bedroom. Even if you had neglected to make your wishes know in advance, our local contact here in Kona would have been more than happy to convert the twins to a king had he been notified. When you plan your next visit you may indicate your choice of bed configuration in the guest bedroom on the reservation and have it ready and waiting for you upon your arrival.

Awesome spot, loud waves, beautiful condo

One of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The lanai is perfect! It looks like this is a quiet beach cove in the pictures, and I was so pleasantly surprised to realize that the waves crash in below the lanai loud enough to hear throughout the living area of the condo. We loved it!!! Everything was perfect. less

Perfect in Every Way

My husband, 20-year-old son, and I loved this condo. It is gorgeous and incredibly spacious. Every morning I came straight out to the living room to enjoy the view. I opened the sliding glass doors to hear the ocean. The owners have provided everything a vacationer might need. Aloha Condos is excellent as well. I will rent through them on my next trip to Hawaii. less

Awesome! - would definitely stay here again.

This condo was top notch. the pictures didn't do it justice. It was beautiful, clean, private, quite and right on the ocean. the view from the lanai was gorgeous...you look right out at an ocean cove. It's a few steps to both pools and tennis courts. The drive into town was about 10 minutes. the drive to kona and snorkeling destinations was also about 10 min. There was no fault with this place at all. There was a *tinsy* bit of construction noise when at the pool by the ocean..but it was short. Pool by the ocean was incredible. Condo had many helpful books..hawaii sights and restaurant menus. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who would like a peaceful stay on hawaii. The rental process was also very easy compared to other places I stayed. I was blown away and plan to stay here again if i can! Seriously awesome... less

Unit 3601had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing vacation. The beds were very comfortable. We did not need air cond. Pools were wonderful - the pool by the ocean is now open. We used everything - Bbq's, beach equipment, all linens (excellent quality), washer dryer, cooked over 1/2 our meals and sat on beautiful lanai, reference books - all was perfect! We are planning our trip for next year! less

Quiet,Very nicely furnished and fully equipped,Beautiful View

We stayed here for a week celebrating our 50th anniversary. It was the perfect condo for us. It is located within beautiful grounds(my wife said it was like walking around in the Garden of Eden) with the lanai overlooking a small cove with the ocean waves breaking against the shoreline,sounds of a variety of birds,a quiet peacefulness, and private location.The condo is beautifully furnished with care and equipped with everything you could need or want.We would highly recommend. less

Great Condo with great view. Condo is well appointed. Aloha group was helpful as well. Master bath sink plug broken. Master bath toilet flush broken. Neighbors in 3700 unit very noisy at 5 am. Overall- great stay. Jim

Owner/Manager Response

Thank you for calling our attention to these problems. Since your stay in condo 3601, the sink plug in the master bathroom has been re-connected. The defective part has been replaced. The flush mechanism is no longer a problem in the master bathroom. The toilets have been upgraded to new raised, water-conserving Kohler commodes. In the future, if there are any maintenance needs, please call our local contact person. He is very responsive and will arrange to have necessary repairs made immediately. As for noisy neighbors, some people arriving from the mainland or other countries forget that they are in a time zone that is different from where they live. This can happen in any resort area. Kanaloa has regulations restricting noise between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. A call to Security will promptly summon someone who will politely inform the offending party. Thank you again for your comments, and I am glad that overall, you enjoyed the many amenities provided for your comfort in condo 3601. Stewart Berkshire, Owner, Kanaloa at Kona, Condo 3601

Great place to stay

Thanks for making this wonderful condo available to us. It was perfect for two couples. It was clean, well-outfitted, and had a terrific view of the ocean. Aloha Condos made the financial part of the transaction easy. We have rented vacation condos from them in the past and have always been pleased with the quality of their service. less

felt like home

loved, love, loved our week staying at this condo. we've traveled to kailua-kona several times and i'd like to start by saying the KTA grocery store up the hill has improved so much over the past couple years. you can get all sorts of local produce (much of it organic) and their prices are comparable; for the big island, at least. costco also has some great local stuff. that being said -- the kitchen in this unit was awesome! the appliances themselves all worked great (that blender was crazy!), but more so the way it was furnished was the nicest part. there were herbs and seasonings and extra paper towels and jars of various condiments were actually left in the fridge! they supplied cleaning products and rags and dish, dishwasher and laundry detergent. there was every gadget imaginable (took us a week to figure out what the pineapple corer was)! we weren't left needing a thing. it's very rare to visit a condo that supplies all those extras. the comforts of home continued throughout the unit. it was very clean, and while it didn't feel brand new, it was super cozy. plenty of space for 3 adults and a toddling 1-year-old. i had inquired about a crib before our trip for the baby and some rental companies were referred to me. those places are ridiculously expensive so i decided to just have the babe sleep with me. the owners took it upon themselves to purchase a play yard for the unit, and charged us a very fair rate for it. the extras continued all the way out to the lanai with a gorgeous view, a mini fridge for all the drinks and a closet stuffed full of beach chairs, pool toys, boogie boards and even snorkel gear. this trip was one of the most relaxing so far (as relaxing as possible with a toddler under foot). the pool areas are nice, the water was a little cold, but refreshing at times. the grounds were very serene all around. i would definitely recommend this condo to a friend traveling to hawaii. we hardly left, and can't wait to get back! less

aloha Kanaloa

The Aloha Condos were all we wished them to be. Our condo was exactly as advertised on the web, clean, modern, fully equipped, with very comfortable amenities. Of course, our location overlooking the crashing surf in the cove directly across from our veranda made our visit even more rewarding. I would recommend without hesitation, Aloha Condos, Kanaloa at Kona, to all our friends less

Home away from home

What a beautiful well appointed place. Great location to do anything on the island yet not burried in the heart of a tourist trap area. Service from Aloha Condos was perfect, e-mails and directions were direct and informative, we will definately use their services again

— Doug, Stayed 11/11/2009

We loved this beautiful, large condo with a great view.

The condo was very nice, large, and clean. The grounds and pool were very nice. The condo was quiet and well stocked with everything we needed. The local contact was very helpful in coming over right away on our arrival day to help us turn on the A/C which is operated on a key lock. The view was wonderful over the bay and we enjoyed the many turtles that were there (even more than at Turtle Beach down the road). The condo is in a great central location and I would definitely recommend it. less

Loved it

I am a bit hesitant to write a review, for fear that the next time we want to stay here it will be booked. But to be true to the "aloha spirit", we have to say that this was one of our favorite places we have ever stayed. The condo is fully equipped with everything you might need (including some great books on local activities). It is also in a very quiet location, overlooking the ocean and a little bay where you can watch the surfers every morning while you drink your coffee. Hopefully we get back here some day. less

Kanaloa at Kona, Unit 3601

My husband and I stayed in unit 3601 for a week in December. Although it was just the two of us, we opted for this unit because of the view and proximity to water. It did not disappoint. The lanai was a perfect spot to watch the waves, and had us thinking we could go jump in the water. As it turns out, the waves break hard at this location, so it was not ideal for me as a beginner. But the beauty and sound were enjoyed throughout our stay. This home is obviously loved, and the stocked kitchen was greatly appreciated. All the pots, pans, and accessories you could ask for, not to mention the spices, oils, etc. This resulted in us saving a bundle on dining out, and resdiscovering how much we enjoy preparing meals. We enjoyed the free wireless internet, which, along with the books in the condo, allowed us to do some research each day to make sure we had our plans straight. It also allowed us to stay in touch with the folks back home. The tile in the home is orignal, and is the only dated feature. By no means does it require replacement, but it does show the guests the period in which the condo was originally constructed. We enjoyed the pools on site, especially the adult only pool, which we would escape to if too many kiddos were playing at the main pool. We did not order from the resturant/bar at the main pool. They were awaiting their liquor license, and were serving a limited menu. less

Kanaloa at Kona

This was our second time to Kanaloa at Kona but our first time at this unit. It was very a relaxing stay...very quiet and private. We enjoyed our short 5 day stay and will definitely be going back for a longer period.

Lovely vacation

This is a very well furnished, lovely condo. The view oc the ocean was fantastic, and so was the singing of the birds. We stayed here for ten nights, hoping to stay a lot more next time!

— Tommy, Stayed 04/02/2009

Kona Condo

A great place to stay on the Big Island. It had everything we needed. It was comfortable and away from town. We had a view of the ocean and complete privacy. We recommend it 100 percent. Thank you.

No Help from Aloha Condos

Aloha Condos did nothing to make us feel welcomed. Our checkin instructions were not sent to us until we emailed and called several times before arriving. Once we got there we did not receive a welcome package, discribing the facilities, and no one at the front deck would help us because you are not a resort guest. "You're with Alohacondos, it's like a curse, no one will even talk to you. They wouldn't even let us have a map of the resort. When we called aloha condos about the information, we were told to look for a packet on the livingroom coffee table. I told them there was nothing on the table they said it should have been placed there but never provided the information. I would never rent from Aloha condos again. The owners were nice, they came and turned on the air conditioner (which costs an extra $15.00 a day) if they hadn't done that Aloha Condo Service would have charged us an additional $25. to unlock the thermostat. . Being right on the ocean was lovely. The pool and bar were enjoyable. The grounds were very nice. The apartment was adequate. Having the second bedroom bathroom in the hallway was inconvenient and lacked privacy. Dealing with Aloha Condos was very disheartening and total not in the Hawaiian spirit. DON"T GO ALOHA CONDOS less

Owner/Manager Response

It's unfortunate that our guest didn't receive the information sent to them or contact us before their arrival saying that they didn't know how to check-in to the condo. The check-in instructions were emailed 30 days prior to arrival, with a follow up reminder one week before arrival. Included in these instructions were specific details with directions to the resort, how to register with the security guard at the resort entry, and how to find and access this beautiful, privately-owned condo. Gaining access doesn't require using the Outrigger front desk as they only manage units in their rental pool. The information guide was inadvertently placed on a shelf in the kitchen with other helpful guide books. These include appliance directions and menus from recommended restaurants and cookbooks. It is boldly labeled "Kanaloa Info". Aloha Condos does not charge the guests for necessary services, including unlocking a thermostat. Guests can, and do, call and receive prompt and courteous personal attention for any concern they may have. The floor plan is clearly shown on the website. Guests often comment on how they enjoy the spacious size (1500+ sq ft) of this unit, including the conveniences offered by the layout, not to mention its beautiful location on the little bay. This review is quite unique and a surprise to us. The owner met the tenants when he came to turn on the A/C control and once again, as they were leaving. Both of these encounters were very cordial and complimentary in nature, with no complaints expressed. We feel very fortunate to have received more 900 FlipKey reviews and thousands of verbal complements on how Aloha Condos truly conveys to our guests the Aloha Spirit that makes Hawaii a wonderful place to be.
