About Stacey Kayden

As an avid cyclist, athlete, triathlete, and traveler Kona has become my second home and spiritual retreat. While not cycling I am busy educating students in the California Community Colleges and raising a teenager, two cats and a dog. I'd like to welcome all to my second home.

Stacey Kayden purchased this condo in 2012

Why Stacey Kayden chose Keauhou

I chose a condo in the Kanaloa complex because of its beautiful tropical surroundings, its proximity to amenities, and its convenient access to numerous adventures and relaxation.

Gorgeous view, quiet, perfect for a relaxing time on the big Island

  • 4 of 5

After 4 days on Waikiki, we were ready for some chill time, which we got at Turtle House. We knew going in that it did not have a/c, but the multitude of fans helped immensely. LOVED having lots of space to hang out, and being able to cook our own food, instead of eating out every meal. Thankful for the boogie boards, the snorkel gear, and everything else we needed to make this a relaxing stay. Thanks, Stacey!

Perfect location! Lovely property for everything fun!

  • 5 of 5

Turtle House is within walking distance to Keauhou Bay for snorkeling, Manta Rays, yoga, turtle viewing, canoe club paddling, farmers Market and much more. The condo is decorated with turtle art and well appointed in every way! Beds are comfy, beach gear is provided and the owner is very responsive. ( made sure we had a refrigerator when the existing one died!)

The view over the black sand beach and sunsets were great and we had lots of privacy the way the decks are situated.

Pools here are clean and access to the lava walk and coast are awesome.

perfect, beautiful, big, well equipped and furnished.

Beutiful condo. Very big, very clean, nicely furnished, nicely decorated! Great complex. Big, 3 balconies. Pictures are spot on correct. Great parking.

Condo had plenty of fans and everything else. please pay attention to the expected tempatures for your visit. No A/C, but you would not really want it, just know that if it is 87 outside, during the day the condo will be warm, but that is the time to go out and stay cool. Night and mornings were so nice even with the hot days. Sleeping was very good with sounds of ocean and being cool from the fans. Great place, we stayed 10 nights in Sep, other times of year will be cooler or have the trade winds.

Kanaloa at Kona

I have been to the Hawaiian islands 12 times. The turtle house is one of the best units I have stayed in. The Kanaola at Kona resort is a beautiful resort. The staff is outstanding!!

Very nice condo to base out of! Well maintained & comfortable. The pools are great. Walk to the bay handy. Note: there are stairs due to build style.
