The highlight of our trip to The Big Island was spending time at the condo. It was in a beautiful gated community and the grounds are immaculate. We loved sitting on the patio for breakfast and then again at dinner and watched the waves in the Bay. The condo was outstanding. Lonna took care of all of the details. The condo was beautifully decorated, spacious and had everything we needed. We loved our master suite. The bathroom was beautiful and has such a comfy bed. I want the closet! Our friends stayed in the second room and there were two single beds – I am sure they were pushed together. The kitchen was the best – seasonings, oil, flour, sugar AND then so much cook ware and bake ware – the best was the Ninja blender for our smoothies. Lonna took such great care of us. From the very beginning she personally answered all of our questions and went out of her way to ensure we had information on all of the islands we visited to the wonderful treats and card upon our arrival. I would not stay anywhere else. Thank you Lonna for sharing your home with us.

Kanaloa condo 3602 is exceptional! The condo looks new and is decorated beautifully, the view is magnificent, the sound of the ocean is heaven. There is a good separation of space between the neighboring building, and although there was a family of 5 staying on the second floor above, it really didn't bother us! The beds were super comfortable, the linens and towels high quality, and the kitchen was equipped with everything one could need. There are some books and games and beach towels (and even hand weights!) for guests to use, and in the shed outside are boogey boards and beach chairs.
Almost as important as what there was, is what there was not! There were NO bugs (often an issue in Hawaii). Also, there was hardly any noise from leaf-blowers, mowers, hedge trimmers etc. which have been a nuisance at other places we have stayed. Just the waves...
The development is nice in that it is gated, there are 3 pools, 2 tennis courts a hot tub, and BBQs here and there and it has beautiful grounds to walk around. Very convenient access to all that Kona has to offer, the airport, etc.
Lonna was generous with the aloha spirit before, during and after our stay, and was quick to respond to all of our needs and questions.
We can't say enough good things about our experience and hope to return soon!

What a beautiful condo! We had such a wonderful, relaxing time here. It has a great view of the ocean. We ate breakfast on the balcony each morning, listening to the surf while watching the people in kayaks and on paddle boards. The condo is attractively decorated, has a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds -- everything was perfect. This was our third visit to the Big Island and this was the nicest place we've stayed at. Highly recommended. Thanks for everything, Lonna!

Many business associates of mine have stayed in this condo over time and the report I heard over and over was, yes we would go out and do great stuff on the big island, yet we couldn't wait to get back to the condo. As my mother used to say, "there is nowhere as nice as your own back yard". and when it comes to this condo, I think she was right.The view is wonderful, the condo has amenities we couldn't have anticipated. Binoculars in the front closet. Super clean, and I couldn't have thanked Lona enough for actually sending a text during the week about a lettuce recall. Wonderful host, wonderful condo, great location. Our only regret was we didn't stay longer.

I don’t know about you but sometimes when a night out is perfect I hesitate to try and duplicate it because it often falls short the 2nd time around. Well we chose to stay at Kanaloa at Kona in condo #3602 6 years after our first visit. I didn’t think this stay could possibly exceed our previous experience but it did! While checking off all of the vacation boxes for relaxation, ocean view, pool time, convenience, great restaurants nearby etc this condo and it’s owner Lonna went above and beyond making us feel at home. We went to several of her, “mostly for locals” restaurants, including the Holuakoa Cafe which was a special night for us. When we stayed in and cooked the kitchen had every necessary item and when we went to Magic Sands and Two Step beaches the condo had every accessory including chairs, snorkels and an umbrella. There were DVDs, books, board games, and tennis racquets. The only disappointment was that we only booked one week.

This condo was the perfect getaway for my family of four (husband, 2 teenage daughters and myself). This was our first time on the Big Island and we could not have been more pleased with location, amenities, the grounds, and the wonderful owner. Lonna was the perfect hostess and communicated with us from the time we booked until we left the island. From the minute we walked in, we felt like we were in someones home. The kitchen was stocked and the decor had the perfect Hawaiian touch without going overboard. We spent most of our days touring the island and loved coming home to the comfortable, spacious condo and just relaxing on the beautiful Lanai overlooking the water.

From the very beginning we were impressed by not only the condo itself but also the way we were treated by the owners and Aloha condos. When entering the condo we were treated to a nice welcoming note with complementary water, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, kona coffee, and a beach bag! Really sweet! Then we looked through the condo and were ecstatic at the accommodations. We have stayed in lots of condos through the years and this was by far the best ! The lanai over looks the water and was the place we spent every morning with a cup of coffee . The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need to help you out cooking if you so chose, such as spices, utensils, pans etc... At night we relaxed in great comfortable beds. On one occasion I had a question for the local contact. He answered immediately and had a solution. All and all if I could give this place a 10 Star out of 5 Star I would! I also would recommend to anyone going to Kona!

We definitely agree with the five star rating on this condo. Beautifully appointed, very clean, a kitchen that is better stocked for cooking than many private homes, and a beautiful location on Keahou bay. It is located in a perfect spot for activities both north, south, or in Kilua-Kona; and after a days activities it is so nice to cook a meal, relax on the lanai and watch the manta ray viewing boats and the beautiful lights of the hotel across the bay. Lonna and Mike are very gracious hosts......they pay attention to the details that make the difference between a good and an excellent place to stay. The condo grounds also include an ocean front pool with great views. This condo is a lovely stay on the west side of the Big Island!
The perfect Condo in Kona!

We love to travel to Hawaii every year and the Big Island has become our favorite island and now we have found the perfect condo to stay at on our annual trip to paradise. It is gorgeous furnished and decorated, super spacious, and has super comfortable furniture. If you have stayed in condos in Hawaii you understand. Plenty of room for a family of 4 to have space even on vacation. We loved the Lanai which was situated right on the water with waves crashing and boats and dolphins passing. Perfect for sunrise coffee every day.
We know the area well and the location of this condo is absolutely perfect to be close to all the great things to do while in Kona. You are right down the street from the boat launch to Captain Cook, which is best snorkeling spot in all of the islands by a mile. A short drive to downtown Kona for shopping, nightlife, and great restaurants. Lonna helped us to discover some new little gems "The Coffee Shack" just up the road in Captain Cook overlooking the most spectacular ocean view and with adorable green geckos and great french toast! Must see! Kahaluu Beach Park which is just a few minutes from the condo had great snorkeling and very shallow easy waters to navigate if you have little ones or first time snorkelers. We were surprised how many fish there were and how close they let you come. Turtles too!
Lonna the owner is the sweetest and most helpful. She has another beautiful condo in the same complex with a pool and sunset view (2602). We plan on trying that out next year!

Stayed here for three weeks. Condo was plenty large enough with lovely furniture. It was very well stocked with all the fun stuff for adventures; the binoculars were a particularly nice touch. Location overlooking the bay was awesome! Watching the waves crash while having a morning coffee was a great way to start the day.
The unit was very well equipped with all utensils required for cooking. Community BBQs on property were great for meeting people from different places and learning about their Big Island experiences.
Only thing stopping this from being a 5 star was the internet connection. My Surface had lots of problems staying connected; frustrating when trying to plan events.

We've stayed in #3602 several times and can't wait to return each time we leave. We absolutely love sitting on the lanai and watching all the activity in the 2 bays. You will never be bored staring at this ocean.

Never have we seen any type of "bug" - IT IS SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. We do love the front door porch geckos who love to sun themselves in the afternoon sun and greet us after a day of adventures. Could not ask for a better location, condo or owners to deal with.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need as well as beach essentials and more for everything else. All of the equipment was in excellent condition.

The Lanai is more private then most due to the location of this Condo. The view is great from the Lanai as well as the couch inside. At night we would sit on the Lanai and watch the Boats come in for the Manta Ray Dive in front of the Sheraton. We watched several dolphin pods go by the mouth of the Harbor. When the whales are going through you can watch them as well. We sat on Lanai watched the Sunrise over the hills and drank our coffee in the mornings. It is close to great snorkeling at 2 step at Honaunau Bay , Kahaluʻu beach park located off of Ali’i Drive in Kailua-Kona And Hapuna Beach State Park.

We had the pleasure of staying in 3602 for 8 nights. It was very comfortable for our family of 4. We found the condo to be very nice with high quality furnishings and decorations. Upon arrival it was spotless. A nice note and a small welcome gift greeted us when we walked in. We felt very welcomed. They turned the A/C on so it was so relaxing when walking in! The bathrooms where super nice! A/C was wonderful. The kitchen is well stocked. Parking is free.
The community is quiet and very well kept. 3602 sits right up off a secluded cove and has a beautiful view of the ocean. There are no structures between you and the water. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai taking in the view. A path near the neighborhood takes you down to the cove which is nice for snorkeling. Each of the 3 pools are nice!
The location of the condo is great! It's a three minute drive to a little plaza that has great food such as pizza, sushi, steak, Mexican and coffee. It's a five minute drive to a wonderful snorkeling beach, Kahaluu Beach Park, where we saw turtles. Five more minutes down beautiful Ali'i Drive and you're in Kona! We love Kona! It reminds us of Lahaina.
This was our first trip to the Big Island and we loved it. We've been to Maui twice. We put 1,000 miles on our rental car exploring the island. We recommend Ride the Rim ATV tour and Poke a Stick lava tour. We enjoyed Quinns Almost by the Sea and Scandinavian Shave Ice in Kona and the Coffee Shack up on Mamalahoa Hwy. Bianellis Pizza in the plaza by the condo has very good pizza. Peaberry & Galette Coffee in the same plaza was a first stop every morning. They make crepes too!

I just would like to say that your condo was perfect for our stay in Kona. From the ease of booking and the great information provided prior to our visit you took care of everything. We loved the condo and the location.
The size of the rooms and the lovely updates in the kitchen and bathrooms made us feel like we were staying at a friends home and not some impersonal hotel. We came and went at our leisure and enjoyed the ground around the complex including the Oceanside pool.
You thought of absolutely everything when stocking the condo including all the household items but including the sporting and beach equipment. You had items in the closet storage that I didn't even know I would need but was glad to find. (sun umbrellas, binoculars, games etc). so nice to not have to include all that stuff in the travel luggage.
Only downside was having to leave. Would recommend your condo to anyone heading to the Big Island.

What a great experience. Before during and after our stay. The check in directions were perfect and we arrived with zero issues. There was a problem with our stay though, it seemed to go by way too fast and was over before we knew it. Condo facilities were outstanding and we especially liked the Oceanside pool and hot tub.
The condo itself is an exceptional bargain when compared to the price of any hotel with a full ocean view. The condo and condo grounds are very well maintained and there is even a small fresh herb garden that can be used if you decide to cook. Of course with the amount of excellent restaurants in Kona you may never even have to cook if you did not want to. Fantastic stay, I really cannot fully describe just how relaxing and perfect our stay was. We will be doing it again.
I would also highly recommend Bongo Ben's restaurant in Kona for breakfast.

Our most recent visit was our third time for this unit. Over the years we have stayed at at least 5 other units at Kanaloa and 3602 has been the best of the bunch. It has a great view of keahou bay. The entrance is more private than most since there is a wide expanse of grass separating it from the next building over. It's nicely appointed and the owners have added a very comfortable pad to the bed. There are two roll down sun screens on the lanai that most other units do not have. However, one of them has a broken pulley assembly so care must be used to raise and lower it. The owners have been made aware of this. The only other "complaint" is that the slider to the lanai has been difficult to lock so the owners have resorted to adding a couple of pieces of hanger rods to put in the tracks.its easy enough to kick them into place but a pain to bend over to take them out. These are minor issues that definitely wouldn't deter us from renting this unit again
Thank you very much for your nice review. It was great to have you back once again. We are blessed to have so many wonderful, repeat guests, who enjoy the unit as much as you do.
We are delighted to hear that you rate our unit as "the best of the bunch" of all the units you have stayed in at Kanaloa over the years!

The décor and finishes throughout were well done, and the condo was very clean. The condo was well supplied with paper goods, kitchen utensils and necessities - everything needed for our stay. We appreciated the welcome gifts (water, coffee, etc.) after a long flight. The nearby shopping center had a grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants that we frequented. We would not hesitate to recommend this condo to friends and family and hope we are fortunate enough to be able to return someday. Communication with the owner was always easy and helpful.

My family and I have been visiting the Big Island annually for the last 30+ years and spent the majority of our visits at Kanaloa at Kona. For the most part, our accomodations were pleasant but nothing to write home about.

And BOY was it worth it!
3602 is by far the nicest condo we've ever had the pleasure of staying at. Not only is it impeccably designed, cleaned, and up-kept - it's also VERY well stocked (and organized!) in regards to kitchen supplies and beach/pool gear. To top it off, we were greeted with a fantastic gift tote!

My wife & I vacation in Kona at least once a year. This condo costs a bit more than where we typically stay, but it was worth every penny. We stayed two weeks this time. It’s an ocean front unit with a spacious lanai positioned along a cove – so you can enjoy the waves without being awoken by intermittent pounding of being on the point. It also sits pleasantly far from any road noise. The perfect little place nestled amongst lush tropical foliage. Nice neighbors too. The grounds, pools, and BBQ areas are kept neat and tidy – and parking is reserved. The unit is beautifully furnished with quality pieces and comfortable bedding. We found all fans (except the one on the lanai, but who cares about that one), utilities, and appliances to be fully functional and in perfect working order. The cleaning staff is impeccable. Groceries, dining, and Alii drive all within walking distance. This is our new go-to vacation rental. Highly recommend. Book it while you can.

We spent 4 nights at this beautiful spot just S of Kona. I read positive reviews online and they didn't disappoint. The condo was very spacious and fit a family of 4 very well. The condo's views were picturesque and we enjoyed listening to the waves crash on the rock beach. This condo has one of the best views in this location.
Beds were comfy, plenty of places to sit and relax, 2 beautiful tiled bathrooms, kitchen fully equipped, lots and lots of closet space, Tv's in each bedroom (although who has time to watch!) -we didn't want for anything!
They supplied beach towels and boogie boards and lots of little items in the cabinets. Also appreciated the laundry facilities and detergent in the condo. The last day we went swimming at the onsite, oceanside pool (there are 5 from what we heard).
We liked being 10-15 minutes from the hustle of Kona. It's not a secluded location but it is very quiet and we didn't see hardly anyone. We would definitely stay here again!
My only minor comments were that the beach umbrella has seen better days and the sand mats had been eaten through by something. But we didn't need these with the other supplies.
I checked the box for aC, then changed my mind. They graciously credited my acct. When we got there we changed our minds and it was no problem starting the aC again. It was hit and miss if we really needed it, but worth the added expense.
Quiet,private and convenient

Our recent stay was our second in this unit and we have already reserved the same period for next year. Very well appointed ground level unit with the lanai angled perfectly for a beautiful view of the ocean and the small bay below where surfers are treated with great wave action. There is public access to the rocky beach about a 100 yards or so from the unit. Each unit has a covered parking stall and this unit's owners have boogie boards, snorkels,beach towels, beach chairs,etc for our use. The development is well maintained with 3 pools,tennis courts,ping pong table,several Bbq's and concierge service. A shopping center is within walking distance. All in all, one of the best units we've stayed in over the years

We stayed at the condo during Christmas week and enjoyed every moment. We originally wanted to stay in the hotel but changed our mind and were very happy about it. There was a lot more space where we can spread out and rest after busy day. The condo is very well equiped (beach towels, underwater camera, games, dvds). Kitchen had cooking oil, vinegar, spices and condiments in the refrigerator. Everything is ready for you to cook. Beds were comfortable. Everything was clean. Outdoor patio is great for dining out day or night or relaxing during the day. The only complaint was about the bath towels. They need to be replaced.
Gorgeous, remodeled unit, spacious lanai, with unobstructed Keau

3602 in June 2013
Reviewed by A FlipKey verified reviewer
We rented this condo during our 4 night stay in the BI. From the moment we arrived at Kanaloa at Kona we were impressed by all the beautiful tropical gardens surrounding the condos. Our condo was right on the waters edge of a private black rock bay. We loved looking out from our private deck at the water. The lights across the bay at night of the Sheraton were amazing. We also enjoyed the provided binoculars to check out the turtles swimming in the bay and the outrigger trips from the Sheraton. It was quiet and private and we seemed to have the resort to oursleves in June. We loved the interior of 3602, very comfortable. Lovely furnishings, plush bed, huge bathroom and shower. The second bedroom we didnt use but it was also large with a walk in robe and there was a 2nd bathroom. The kitchen was fitted out with all the mod cons, huge stove, microwave and lovely marble bench tops. All the kitchen, bathroom accessories were well thought out. We wanted for nothing. There were beach towels, snorkelling gear, beach chairs, washing detergent, dryer sheets, spare towels and linen, sunscreen shampoo the works. This resort is a few kms from town, but no problem if you have a car. There is a great little shopping centre across the road and the cliff top restaurant is fabulous with lovely sunsets. The supermarket also helped with grocery shopping. We loved the Big Island. It has great snorkelling, and the clearest water in hawaii. We took a helicopter tour over the lava which was fantastic, we drove around the whole island which even though it is the largest island, was certainly do able. Kona is a great township with lots of quaint shops, great artworks. We also found out that King Kamehameha (cant spell his name, sorry king) was born just across the bay from this actual condo. We definitely recommend this condo, we loved it.

Konaloa at Kona is a great location, quiet, beautiful view, secure resort. Condo 3602 lives up to all the photos on the internet - really it has everything. Look in the parking spot shed before buying boogie boards. There is even a cooler in the lani storage closet.I can't imagine wanting more than you get with this resort or this condo. My only reservation would be it is a downstairs unit so you can hear the folks upstairs walking around, flushing toilets etc. - you may or may not notice this depending on what you are used to. For the price - you can't beat this condo.

Kanaloa at Kona Condo 3602 is simply the best condo (or hotel) facility we have ever stayed at. The unit was extremely clean, very well furnished, very well appointed, and had all the comforts that you would want in a vacation condo. We found everything we needed (and more) for a very comfortable stay.The view is fantastic and each of us spent a great deal of time out on the deck in comfy chairs staring at the surf, boats, weather and people in the water.The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The three pools and multiple BBQ units were always clean and in top shape.We truly hated to leave and are saving our money so we can return and stay in this exceptional unit. Many thanks to the owners and staff!!

The best unit we've stayed in at Kanaloa
Reviewed by Kim
We liked the adjacent unit 3601 the year before but couldn't book it for the time we wanted but we were able to book 3602 for most of Feb. 2013. We are glad it turned out that way because 3602 was much nicer inside. It apparently had been recently updated at considerable cost according to another owner who knows the owners. Also, the lanai, which faces south-southwest, has a much better, wider view of the bay and the ocean but without the sun beating in on you. There was no need to drop the sun screens. The unit is quite private and quiet. The only building you see from the lanai or main living windows is across a large expanse of grass. The ocean breezes and the ceiling fans kept the unit comfortable, no need for the optional a/C. It was fun watching the surfers come in toward the small beach just below us and to the left. The unit was well appointed with newer appliances, glass showers, nice granite countertops through out. This unit is in Kanaloa at Kona which is has about 37 buildings, 3 pools, newer covered barbecues scattered over the property. It's close to the entrance and the club house so coming and going is convenient. We have already booked this unit for next year

This was our second stay at Kanaloa at Kona, and our first stay in unit 3602. We loved it! Having stayed in the same building, but different unit, previously, we knew we would spend much of our time on the lanai. Such a wonderful spot. Unit 3602 is stunning, with top notch decor throughout. In between our first stay, and the most recent, we traveled to Maui. We determined that Kona is the spot for us when you get much more bang for your buck. My only concern with this unit is the either the owners will sell it, or that it will become so popular we have difficulty booking it in the future.

This was our first stay on the big island, and we could not have been happier with condo 3602. The unit was very nicely furnished, much more so than many other rentals we've used before. It was clear that the owners decorated and maintained the unit with great care. The view from the Lanai was exceptional. The overall property was also great, we especially liked the ocean pool and views. We hope to return and would love to stay in this particular unit again!

The Keauhou area of the big island is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing and active vacation. It is not touristy like saying in town and yet shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. The Kanaloa at Kona condos get as close to perfection as is possible without owning your own unit and living there full time. 3602 in particular is the condo of choice. While the complex is very well maintained and quiet the specific location of 3602 is ideal. The lanai is directly next to a semi private cove making quick dips in the ocean to snorkel or swim very convenient. The condo is well appointed with glass tile and granite tops and stocked with all the misc. accessories like binoculars and beach coolers. Tennis courts are onsite and an additional 10 court facility is almost next door. Don't hesitate on this condo, enjoy!

We have stayed in many condos over the years, but #3602 was by far the best stay! The condo is beautifully decorated with all the amenities one could possibly need or want. Our special place was the lanai with the view overlooking the cove below. My husband and I would actually play on the beach in the morning and come back to the condo in the afternoons and evenings to just spend quiet time on the lanai soaking in the tropical wonder. The Kanaloa is a quiet property and very well groomed and maintained!All dealing with aloha condo were prompt and professional. They are very user friendly as well.Beat vacation we have had in years!

The picture accurately captures the view from the lanai at 3602, where we ate every single meal. The condo was incredibly comfortable, quiet, very well equipped, and easy to settle into. The view over the bay was lovely, especially in the mornings, when we even saw some spinner dolphins traveling through. We were a short walk or a short drive to fantastic snorkeling, and we did night snorkeling with the manta rays right next to the nearby Sheraton. We would definitely stay here again!

Can't beat the location for the price. As a main floor unit, we did find the guests above a little loud with very heavy feet. Air conditioning was a little tricky to figure out as well but after the cleaning lady came, it worked great (but we never did find out what she did). Lanai was wonderfully relaxing. Being right on the bay was also a bonus for Kayak rentals and snorkelling.
