Kanaloa at Kona Resort is a prestigious 18 acre development on the Big Island's famous Kona Coast. Managed by the Outrigger Hotel Group, the resort features stunning ocean vistas, well manicured gardens, and plenty of aloha! It is the perfect setting to enjoy Kona's 300+ days of sunshine a year!
Your vacation home is extremely well located. Walk to the adjacent harbor at Keauhou Bay where you can organize sport fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, outrigger canoeing, and sunset sails.
You might also go snorkeling at Kahalu'u beach (thought by many to have the best snorkeling on the island) or go boogie boarding at White Sands Beach--both beaches are close by and feature lifeguards.
Similarly, pampering can be found at the nearby Keauhou Sheraton's spa. Restaurants and shops are conveniently located just up the hill at Keauhou shopping center.
There are also trips to Waipi'o Valley in the north for hiking and horseback riding; helicopter tours; hiking and viewing the active Kilauea Volcano in the south; and treks up Mauna Kea, a volcanic peak rising some 14,000 feet above sea level!
Notice about Kona Country Club closure: Please note that the Ocean Course and driving range are closed for renovation through early 2014. The Mountain Course is no longer operating.
Kanaloa is a short drive from the Kailua-Kona International airport at Keahole (KOA) which offers nonstop commercial airline service from Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, San Jose along with direct inter-island flights from Maui, Kuaii and Oahu.
We look forward to welcoming you and are certain you will have a great stay!

The home is directly on the water with unobstructed views of the Pacific and Keauhou Bay. The unit is extremely spacious and well laid out. Kanaloa is one of the best maintained developments on the island with friendly staff and plenty of Aloha.
My wife and I want to let you know how much we enjoyed our time at Kanaloa. Our trip to Hawaii was planned as a special Christmas gift to our son and daughter-in-law and our time in your beautifully decorated and well appointed condo contributed to a memorable vacation. Thank you.
Great location and a well equipped condo. Had one electrical problem but everyone was promptly on it taking care of the problem. I would definately recommend staying at this location.
had a great time on the Big Island. Going to have to invest in a sound machine as we do miss the sound of the waves as we went to sleep. The only downside was that the noisy neighbors above us coming in after midnight. Of course this isn't something we blame on the condo. It was wonderful. Enjoyed cooking on the BBQ by the pool most nights but also the proximity to many fun local restaurants. So sorry we had to leave. Two weeks went really fast. Also, any issues we had were handled promptly.
Quality, comfortable, oceanfront (not just ocean view) unit in the very nice Keauhou resort neighborhood.
Close to the touristy hot mess that is Kailua-Kona town (15 minutes) but far enough to feel like a local in a very quiet, well maintained part of the Big Island (beautifully landscaped, fabulous sunsets, and adjacent to a golf course).
About 20-30 minutes south of the KONA airport so very accessible and easy to get to.
Comfortable, clean, tropical-ish interior and furnishings. Spacious and clean throughout.
Excellent restaurants, grocery stores (KTA) and drug store (Longs) in shopping complex nearby (2 minutes). Just be prepared for the relatively high prices on everything since almost everything has to be shipped in from somewhere else. Farmer's market on Saturdays in this complex with lots of great local produce (mac nuts, honey, tropical fruits, etc.). Tip: Just don't get any of the expensive baked goods sold there if you are looking for something tasty - very average (dry and tasteless) and in some cases, downright inedible gloppy messes of saccharine sweet tropical fruit flavored concoctions). However, we bought some of the stuff anyhow to support the locals.
Well-furnished kitchen with all of the amenities and accoutrements to make a great meal.
Close to excellent snorkeling and swimming beaches (5 minutes away), including your own swimming lagoon next door to the complex.
Down the street from where many of the water excursion boats depart (Captain Cook snorkeling, dolphin tours, night manta ray dives).
Clean, refreshing, well-maintained ocean front pool less than 100 yards away if you feel like a quick dip.
Very accommodating and responsive owner/property manager (even offered us a refund if we had wanted to leave early on account of Hurricanes Madeline/Lester).
Well-located for all of your Big Island outdoor excursions (volcanos, cowboy country in Waimea, green sand beach, Waipio black sand beaches, and Hapuna Beach).
Only downside is that you have to pay extra ($25/day plus tax) for air conditioning but we found it totally necessary for sleeping on those hot humid nights where the air is so thick you feel like you can drink the air and everything feels slightly damp including your sheets and body. There were decent ocean breezes at times while we were there in August/early September, but all those did was to blow hot humid air around, so worth getting the air conditioning option.
We stayed at this ocean front unit in mid August with temperatures ranging from 85 to 95 F, so the A/C (which we prepaid for) was extremely helpful. The condo's location was excellent - close to town - about 6 miles (Alli Drive - the main street with restaurants and shops) and to two beaches (Kahaluu Beach Park - 2 miles, great for snorkeling, and the Magic Sands Beach - 3 miles, great for boogie boarding and jumping over the waves). The resort itself was very well maintained and had beautiful landscape, a golf course, and several swimming pools. The condo had unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean and lava rocks below. The ocean front pool was just to the right of the lanai. The lanai was spacious with a table for four and two lounge chairs - perfect spot for watching sunsets, the outriggers, and sailboats cruising by. Just off to the left of the lanai, the lava rocks proved to be a great spot for fishing. The condo had everything we needed, with fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms. There were beach chairs and beach gear available for use in the entry closet - a nice surprise, as we didn't expect anything. Beds were very comfortable, and we slept well. One evening, the whole condo complex lost power for five hours, but we found flashlights in the hall closet, so it was not a problem. The designated parking place was just steps from the unit, and it was covered so our rental car stayed cool in the shade - a big plus. Overall, we would highly recommend this condo. We had a wonderful time there. Thank you Liam for sharing your beautiful condo with us!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The pools and grounds were well maintained and the extras in the room (towels, coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards) were so useful. I would gladly recommend this condo. It was the perfect location for us with a shopping mall close by but a little out of the way to give us the privacy that we like. There is a beach/cove within walking distance with great snorkeling including turtles.
We loved this condo - roomy, sunny, great ocean breezes (we never considered using the a/c), close to the pool, great sunsets, very responsive owner. We liked being away from (but close enough to) the hurly-burly near Kona itself. Highly recommended.
Close to some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving on the island. Two 18 hole golf courses, including one ocean course.
