Kanaloa 2BR Family Condo, Lots of Room

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Kanaloa at Kona 1002 provides the perfect blend of luxury and value in an unsurpassed Hawaiian setting. This large (1500+ sq.ft.) and elegant condo is situated on the north edge of the Kanaloa complex, facing the Kona Country Club course about 100 yards off the ocean. It's an ideal setting for fun family vacations or tranquil getaways. We've just completed new kitchen and living room upgrades, so it's looking better than ever.

The four-star Outrigger Kanaloa at Kona resort is famous for its gorgeous tropical landscaping and peaceful ambiance. Kanaloa features three swimming pool and spa complexes, lighted tennis courts, and fabulous oceanside dining on the premises at Jameson's Grill and Bar. The location is close to downtown Kona but away from the crowded 'condo row' along Ali'i Drive. There are lots of nice places you can walk right from the front door. Escape the traffic!

Our unit is beautifully decorated and furnished, with a king bed in the master suite and two twin beds (or king conversion) in the second bedroom, plus two sofa beds. Very complete kitchen, TV/DVD/VCR, second TV in master bedroom, stereo, washer/dryer, and many extras. Wireless internet is free and available both in the unit and poolside. The large, shady lanai is surrounded by greenery, with lovely golf course and mountain views.

Please see the slideshow on our owner's website and our Kona condo pictures here on VRBO. Please contact Scott or Jen and let us help you plan your trip to the Big Island. Mahalo!

About The Owner

The Norris family has been traveling to Hawaii for years. We have listed this great Kanaloa at Kona condo on VRBO since we purchased it in 2001.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why The Owner chose Kailua-Kona

We have stayed at many places in Kona and we looked at everything on the market. Kanaloa at Kona simply stood out from the rest, and as soon as we saw this unit the decision was easy. For overall size and quality, plus the great location and expansive setting, Kanaloa is tops.

What makes this condo unique

For us one of the big things is traffic--or lack of it, when staying at Kanaloa. We have rented ocean view units at the Bali Kai and others where you get a nice view--from the living room. But in 2BR units the second bedroom may be facing the street! Step outside in those places and there's nowhere to walk or run except up and down the bike lane on Ali'i Drive. So we love Kanaloa where you can step outside and walk barefoot on lawns down to the shoreline, or stroll along the oceanfront or over to the nearby marina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know we enjoyed staying at your home in Kona. You have a really nice place and our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. Thanks so much for opening your home to us and providing all the information for your home and the island. Everything went well. We had a great vacation in Hawaii and can’t wait until we can go back again.

Our vacation in this condo was unforgettable! We had planned to spend a few days driving around the island, but after staying here just one night we called Scott to see if we could possibly stay a few more nights here. Not only is the condo fully stocked with everything you need for an active vacation, but all the furnishings are so comfortable, the views and the property grounds are gorgeous, and the pool overlooks a breathtaking coastal view of the ocean.

The layout of the home is spacious and all one much better than climbing stairs! Rooms are large, chairs are comfortable, everything is very clean and there is a feeling of warmth throughout.

It was so convenient to snorkeling just down the road, as well as a short drive to Two Step beach for amazing diving. Shopping is very close, and golfing is out your back door.

No reason to look any further, you have found the BEST!

great location for the east coast of the big island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here over the holidays. We have three kids, ages 15, 20 and 23. The bedding worked out beautifully, our King bed was delighful, the two twins worked well in the other room and the 15 year old loved having the large sofa bed to herself with her own TV. The location was great for getting to kayaking down the coast, snorkelling at TWO steps and visiting the place of refuge. The food stores were just a 5 minute drive up the road and the touristy bit of Kona is close enough yet far enough away! Despite being a bit of a drive to Hapuna and Maune Kea Beaches, it really wasn't a big deal compared to rush hour at home.

My only suggestion would be to absolutely keep the door of the washer open when not in use as the seal has molded and has a mildewy smell that will eventually be very costly to change. We didn't know about maintenance coming around to spray in the suite, which was a bit of a surprise, but they were very accommodating and said they would return after we left.

All in all a great location for a family holiday.

Perfect location, roomy condo, and lovely grounds

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at Kanaloa on our recent trip! It's in a perfect location close to shops and beaches, and the complex itself is beautifully tropical. The condo is very spacious and nice (although it could use a coat of paint and maybe some new flooring) and is in a great corner location for plenty of privacy. The kitchen and bathrooms are large and the master has a huge walk-in closet (where our toddler slept in the Pack n Play). Our kids loved romping on the grass right outside. The lanai is perfect for dining or hanging out. Parking is easy and the pools are fantastic! Overall a great stay and we would definitely come again.

Great location- we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this Condo! My family of 5 had more than enough space to relax after a day out exploring. We found the kitchen very well stocked, the only item we couldn't find was utensils for the barbecue. Pool areas are very nice and the grounds were constantly being maintained. I will be coming back here to enjoy Hawaii again.

Awesome condo, awesome holiday! We are coming back to same condo next year!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed condo with all the kitchen tools supplies. Awesome internet connection, tvs, bathrooms were spotless upon arrival as was the kitchen. Looking out the living room you see the 11th green which is so pretty with all the palm trees. Totally functional kitchen with a convection oven. 20 minutes to Costco to get supplies. A great grocery store 5 minutes away. Walk out to the golf course or a two minute walk to ocean and ocean pool. All three pools are so warm and especially awesome for a late night swim. Grounds are kept up with no leaves or anything out of place. The property is just stunning! The walk around the sea wall and 12th green are what memories are made from. Just about the best walk around. Parking is just one minute from condo door. We were 4 adults and one 12 year old for 10 days and the place flowed with all of us in there making dinner and relaxing. Also supplied are goggles, masks, and some coolers we could use for our travelling day lunches. Plastic glasses are also supplied to take our margaritas to the ocean pool to watch the sunset every night at 6:09 pm. All in all the best vacation we have been on. Definitely will be back! Thanks Scott and Jen.
