We stayed in Unit 2003 at Kanaloa at Kona for ten days with our daughter and her family. The condo was spacious and clean and provided comfort for our whole family. We spent a great deal of time on the lanai, which was practically in the waves! It was so relaxing to watch the waves crash on the rocks and view the beautiful sunsets. We also used the ocean view pool every day and enjoyed the facilities there. It was nice to have a shower right there for a quick rinse off after swimming. A very nice BBQ was located just across from our unit and we met some nice people while we cooked dinner each night. It was a bit of a drive to a white, sandy beach, but the one across from the Veteran's Cemetary just north of the airport was fantastic. Great snorkeling, beautiful, clear water, and gentle waves in which to play and swim. We also had a great fresh ono dinner at Quinn's, which I would highly recommend. All in all it was a delightful vacation and we would definitely return to Unit 2003 again in the future!
Unit 2003 was every bit as nice as the description made it sound. We found the unit clean and very nicely equipped. There were also plenty of towels, soap for kitchen/dishwasher/clothes washer, coffee filters, etc. We ate all our meals at the condo to save money. Really, the only negative for our group was that the third bedroom is not very private and those staying there must go downstairs to use the bathroom. This was described on the website so my point is just that this unit is probably better for 4 adults and 2 kids rather than 3 couples.
This unit is very conveniently located both in terms of being right on the water and in terms of easy access. From Kona and points north you can take Hwy 11 to get there quickly. A complete shopping center is very close by but just far enough away that you don't notice it unless you go there.
One last very fun thing to do.... a short walk from the condo is the Keauhou Canoe Club. They are very friendly and offer morning paddles for no charge. If you've never paddled an outrigger, this is your chance. Just show up in a bathing suit - they supply the paddle, a big boat you'll share with experienced members, and instruction. Be sure to hum the Hawaii 5-0 theme only to yourself!
Wonderful views. Very relaxing. We spent a lot of time on the balcony just watching the waves crash on the lava beach and enjoying the sunsets.
We spent the first half of our stay on the Big Island at this condo, and feel extremely fortunate that we did! The condo is very comfortable, and spacious. It has many details that other accommodations may not include, like a laundry basket in every bedroom closet (we have four kids, so details like that matter), beach equipment, like umbrellas, coolers, water shoes, etc. (Things you probably can't bring along from the mainland). The bathrooms were large and had soap, shampoo and conditioner provided. The showers were very high quality. We never ran out of hot water. The very best part of this outstanding condo though, was the lanai. We sat every morning with coffee and watched the ocean roll in, boats go by, paddle boarders paddle by, etc. It was hard to leave at the end of our stay. One last note is that the location is perfect. We went to Hapuna Beach on two different days, and it was an easy drive. Also, went to a luau at the Sheraton, which is about 5 minutes drive away. Snorkeling cruise was about 2 minutes away. There's a little strip mall with restaurants, Long's Drug, grocery store, book store, etc. 5 minutes away. If we go back to the Big Island, we will make every effort to return to this condo!
Beautiful, well furnished and comfortable condo. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking in. The view was mesmerizing. Saw an early morning school of about 100 porpoises.
This was our third time returning to this condo and, once again, we had a fantastic stay. The condo is extremely well equipped (including great recreational equipment), comfortably and tastefully furnished and very clean. The view from the spacious lanai is second to none! The resort itself is fabulous and in a great location within walking of great snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding, grocery store, movie theatre... but away from the more congested areas. This condo provides everything you need for true fun and relaxation! Booking arrangements and communication with the owner were very smooth and friendly. We had a problem with the WiFi this time which was addressed immediately. (first time we have had any problems at all!)
We highly recommend this condo and look forward to coming back!
Home away from home! We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation. This is a spacious, well appointed unit. Everything was in good working order upon arrival. We have rented other condos at Kanaloa, and this one is equally nice. The view is fantastic, and we had many happy happy hours on the lanai.
The master bedroom/bathroom is updated and very nice. Second bedroom has twin beds, which was good for our grown kids, who joined us later in the week. The loft bedroom has an L shaped day bed combo, but the kids preferred the mattresses in the downstairs bedroom.
It was unusually warm the first few days of our stay, so we had Ken come turn the air conditioning on. It was definitely worth it! On previous winter trips we didn't need it, but when we did, we did! I noticed other reviews mentioned problems with the a/c; it has been fixed and worked perfectly.
I appreciated all the gear that was supplied: Beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel masks and fins, coolers, beach towels, water bottles, totes...all the beach things you don't have enough room for in your luggage! Washer and dryer worked great.
Kanaloa is well situated just south of Kailua, so you're not in the traffic of town. The nearby shopping center was great for daily needs, and we started with a Costco run on the way from the airport when we arrived.
Mahalo Mhari, for sharing your lovely condo with us!
