The condo was fantastic. Clean, comfortable, roomy and about as close to the ocean as you can be without getting wet. LOVED the sounds of the crashing waves at night. Reserved parking spot was a bit tight and the "hot tub" near the pool was merely warm and with low energy jets but those issues are not enough to detract from a 5 star condo.

We have had many stays at the Kanaloa at Kona condos, and as usual, this was another wonderful experience. The condo was very nice although did not have the extent of amenities as other condos we have rented in this complex . The condo decor is nice, has a good lanai and view, and the proximity to Kilauea-Kona is great for day trips and activities both north and south of town. As always, a stay in these condos is a great vacation!

This condo has fantastic sunset views and is spacious. We also really enjoyed the ocean view pool. It also came with beach umbrellas, towels, snorkel gear and a good sized cooler. There a few things that could make this a more comfortable stay.The beds were very uncomfortable - the hardest we have ever slept on. Everyone in our party commented on this. It could really benefit from newer mattresses, or at least mattress pads. Also, the towels were a little tattered and the guest shower had signs of mold.

Stunning and majestic are weak starters to this description. The condo is spacious and nicely appointed and equipped. But the true attraction begins about 50 feet off the lanai where the Pacific assaults the black volcanic shoreline. Every 15 seconds a wave crashes in with larger swells about once a minute that launch geysers of white water spewing to the sky. Don't bother with the televisions, the real show can be seen and felt right outside. This is a wonderful place.

We had a fun time barbecuing in the resort. We would definitely come back again :) We wish there was a can opener in the kitchen :) Everything else was great!!

One of the best locations on the Big Island. Can't beat the views of the ocean from this condo! Sitting on the lanai, hearing the surf and watching the sunset was really relaxing.

Kanaloa in general is a great complex, and this condo is no exemption. Spacious living area that's well-appointed with a good sized lanai directly on the ocean where you can watch the sunsets. We have stayed in several of the condos at Kanaloa and this was on par if not a little nicer than the other ones. 2 bedrooms and loft easily sleeps up to 6 and has 2 full bathrooms. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to the Big Island.

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.

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.

We stayed in unit 2904 for 2 nights, but wish we would have planned longer. The condo was clean, bathrooms a bit outdated (but not the place you spend the most time!), fully equipped kitchen, and an amazing view of the ocean. We enjoyed our coffee, POG, and breakfast on the lanai facing the ocean each day. The trade winds kept the rooms cool, so there was no need for a/C.

We recently traveled to Kona for family wedding. One family member made a reservation at Kanaloa at Kona and we followed suit. It was a great location for family gatherings-we rented 4 different units. Lots of pools, barbeques and easy access to so many sites in the area. Our condo was very comfortable with everything in working order. The best surprise was the snorkel gear and beach stuff in the unit for our use. We woulld definately stay here again.

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

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

We have stayed at other units at the Kanaloa at Kona complex and enjoyed those units as well, but Unit 3702 was absolutely the best! The view was totally spectacular as you got to see the waves crashing in the bay as well as seeing and enjoying the ocean view. It was fun watching the surfers surf the bay and seeing the boats come into and out of Keauhou Bay. This will be out go-to condo when we travel to Hawaii from now on. The Unit was clean and very comfortable. Wish I could give if a higher rating that "just" 5 stars!

We loved our stay here and spent many hours on he lanai enjoying the gorgeous ocean view. The condo complex is very quiet - I was concerned when we first arrived because the master bedroom is in the front of the unit by the parking lot. But it was very quiet and I slept great. The condo is spacious and comfortable. There are many excellent restaurants just up the hill in a nearby shopping center and a marina a block away where you can catch a snorkel tour. Highly recommended!

The photos and tours on the aloha Conda website were very accurate and, as far as we are concerned, this unit had the best view from the Lanai of any we stayed in. There was a gift basket of fruits and cookies when we arrived and we thoroughly enjoyed eveything about Unit 1604.

This was our first, and definitely not last, time renting a condo during a vacation - a thoroughly enjoyable experience! The unit was well equipped, clean and comfortable, with great views and privacy. The appliances are modern and so convenient, and the little things like the cooking utensils, guide books and overall decor were great. The entire experience was fantastic; the owner really cares and goes out of her way and we really appreciated her follow-up. Definitely recommend this condo!!

The condo is in a very nice community, everybody we’re very nice and friendly, also very convenient to a small shopping center, around half mile. inside, it’s very clean, only thing we bought was towels from local grocery store. another thing was we couldn’t figure out how to find the TV channels and the Wifi router needs to restart frequently. my son likes this place very much, wanted to stay more days :-)

My whole family loved our stay at Kanaloa at Kona, Condo #2403. The Condo is very nice and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for cooking and a fun day at the beach. The views from the lanai with crashing waves on the lava beach are stunning. The master bedroom and bath are very spacious with walk in closet, large dual shower, dual vanities, and washer and dryer. The complex is beautiful, safe, and peaceful. I would stay here again if we come back to the Kona.

This unit is in one of the best buildings at the Kanaloa condos. We have stayed many times at Kanaloa, and Know where the best views are. The location is unsurpassed, looking out over of the coastline of Keahou, Whales and spinner dolphins were spotted several times from the Lanai. We had a few internet issues, but was helped well by the local contact. Here are a couple of our suggestions to bring it to a 5 star review. First, the couch was sagging in the middle and not very comfortable to sit on, the dishwasher did not clean our dishes well, so we did them by hand some of the time. ...

This was my third stay at Kanaloa at Kona and this unit was by far my favorite. When you book online you always wonder if the place will be as nice as advertised and unit 1801 was. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals, there are mats for the beach and boogie boards too. You can’t beat walking down the hall in the morning, opening the sliding glass doors and taking in the view of the ocean and no need to rush to the ocean view pool to view the sunset, because you can see it from the lanai. Can’t wait to stay again next trip!!

We had been going to Kauai and decided to try the Big Island. Our condo at Kanaloa was perfect for what we wanted to do. It was large, well appointed and in a wonderful location. We were a bit surprised that we had to pay extra for air conditioning but all other expenses were in line with what we had paid for other condos. We highly recommend this property.

We loved this condo. There were only two of us who actually stayed here, but it was the hub for our whole family, part of which stayed in another condo. The location was perfect and the lanai was heavenly. This was our slice of paradise for a week. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials and there were boogie boards and pool noodles available, too. Furniture was fine, the unit has been tastefully remodeled and is nicely decorated. We were very comfortable. Thanks for everything!

We stayed at this condo twice, in 2006 and 2008. It was remodeled between our visits, improving on what was already a lovely place to stay. It has two bedrooms. The master suite is large with a big bathroom and a Jaccuzzi hot tub. The lanai overlooks the ocean--you hear it 24/7, very relaxing with beautiful sunsets. 2nd bathroom is also large. Great kitchen, dishwasher, big refrigerator. Washer and dryer work well. Beautiful grounds and pools. Read our review plus others on Trip Advisor--we rented the condo based on those reviews and pictures online.

Our stay at this condo was a very enjoyable and relaxing experience. There's nothing like getting up in the morning, making a cup of coffee, and sitting on the lanai relaxing to the sound of the surf and the sight of the ocean! The condo was well-supplied, clean, and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful, clean, and peaceful. This was definitely the best place we've stayed at in our three trips to the islands. We're spoiled now! The only thing that would have made our stay better was if the complex had a bar/restaurant. Still, the drive to town wasn't all that far. We can't wait unt...

We celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary and brought our granddaughter with us. Lot's of room for us . We spent most of our time on the lanai taking in the view and the sounds of the waves. The chairs and umbrellas came in handy for our beach trips. This place has all the comforts of home and more. We would recommend it to anyone.
