Recent Kanaloa at Kona reviews

  • Fantastic!

    "We loved this condo! Our 6 year old was so excited to have "her own level" since she slept in the loft and even had her own bathroom up there. The 2 other bedrooms have king size beds so it would work well if 2 couples wanted to share this condo. The pool is beautiful and the condo had everything we needed. We highly recommend this unit!"

  • “Better than advertised - Talk about a VIEW!”

    "We followed Susan A. this July. Her review and the others are spot on and I simply reconfirm everything they so eloquently stated. 
We took our 15 year old grandson with for a long overdue special trip. This was our second trip to the Big Island in addition to three trips to Kauai. The Big Island is definitely better suited for a teenager. Being so close to an excellent snorkeling beach was a plus. The ocean was too flat for surfing for my snowboarder grandson, but he made up for it taking underwater pictures of sea life. He even got to see sunsets with the big green flash.
 My wife who used to be a rental and maintenance manager for over 1100 units that included college kids, young and older adults spanning 4 towns made a very telling statement the second day. As we were sitting on the Lanai enjoying a cup of coffee, she asked me, "Can you believe they let strangers stay here?" She went on about the furnishings, art work, stocked kitchen etc. I said that's why we are leaving it better stocked than when we arrived. She still can't believe that I found this gem. At first I had thought about staying in the Waikoloa area, since that’s where we stayed the first time in conjunction with a conference. That location and options just didn't fit in with grandson, so I started searching and bingo.
 If you are searching and find this lovely condo, check the calendar and book it!
 Grandson was the first to spot a mongoose. The wildlife is great with the colorful birds visiting the Lanai and the bright green geckos on the tree next to the front door. 
The must read notebook that John provides has valuable info. Even though he requests that the "Local full time personal Concierge" not call, you'll probably get one. He was easy to put off. That title threw me off a bit as I own a t/s in Sint Maarten I bought in the late 80's and they didn't and still don't use that term to lure people in. There's another booth with friendly folks offering money saving offers near the fine grocery store, KTA, up the hill. To be honest, July can be hot at this location. We endured the humidity that Susan mentioned for a few days, then the tropical storm moved on and it became bearable. Our earlier trips were in February or October and the heat surprised us a bit. Yes, we left before the double storm threat hit the Hilo side. We tracked it from NH and it was sad seeing the pics of places we had visited. The rental process was the easiest one I've ever encountered. Thanks John and Becky"

  • Wonderful Condo

    "I've stayed in dozens of places in Hawaii, but this was my favorite. Kanaloa is a beautiful resort. The condo is spacious, comfortable, and attractively decorated and the view is fabulous. Dealing with Liam was easy and pleasant. I hadn't expected to need air conditioning, but it was unusually hot. Liam and his local helpers Jean and Eric had us air-conditioned in no time. Everything about the experience was good. I'd go back in a minute."

  • Great stay for family of six

    "We stayed here for 5 nights in July - 2 parents, 2 grandparents and 2 kids ages 10 and 12. It was a wonderful location - 5 miles out of Kona so away from all the busyness but close enough to head in for dinner. We snorkeled at Kahalu'u every morning - best snorkeling ever for free! We really appreciated the high quality free snorkel gear provided at the condo. The condo was good sized with plenty of room for everyone. There is a grocery store less than 1 mile away with a farmer's market once a week. We did the night snorkel with the manta rays with Fairwinds which was less than a mile away as well. A relaxing stay, near great snorkeling and amenities."
