  • Perfect Family Vacation

    "This was our second stay in this large and comfortable condo, located in a very quiet residential area. We loved hearing the ocean from the main lanai, and really enjoyed the large bedrooms with our 2 teens. The condo has great views and the resort is close to many places to explore on your vacation. We loved the neighbourhood around the resort. We walked to the Sheraton to see the sunset and another night walked to a great informal restaurant on Keauhou Bay. It has boogie boards, coolers, snorkel gear and lawn chairs supplied - you just need to show up for a great vacation. Steve is very accommodating and easy to make arrangements with. We hope to be back for a third visit."

  • Still thinking about the outlook!

    "We have to say this was one of the best condo's we have stayed in, and we have been to Hawaii for over 15 years. The location and grounds are amazing. this was our 4th year at Kanaloa and hope to return next year. The Condo was great everything one could need on vacation. There was even beach gear towels chairs cooler, and the condo had been upgraded so lovely and fresh, great shower and even an ice maker for all those cocktai's and lovely drinks. The bed was very comfortable, got lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean. The view was spectacular, I would recomend this condo to friends ans family with no hesitation. Thank you Liam for sharing your little bit of paradise. Helen & Steve."

  • “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"
