Kanaloa at Kona is considered by many to be the nicest resort on the Kona Coast. It sits on an ancient Lava flow that juts out into the Ocean about 1/2 mile, thereby separating the resort from the noise and traffic of Alii Drive, with entrance through a quiet residential neighborhood. All the other resorts in town sit right on Alii Drive. The resort is beautifully manicured and is located on a quiet, peaceful 16 acres bounded by the Kona Country Club Golf Course on the north, the ocean on the west, serene He'eia Bay on the south,. Walking distance to all the activities of beautiful Keauhou Bay, and less than half a mile to the Keauhou Shopping Center with supermarket, drug store, urgent care, and many shops and restaurants. Due to the integrated design and low density of the property, it has the feel of "Old Hawaii", as opposed to condo or apartment blocks with a few palm trees spread around.
The resort is a gated community with three lovely pools, each with jacuzzi, shower, and changing rooms, two lighted tennis courts, six BBQ's, and a front desk with a very helpful concierge on duty to assist you. The Kanaloa at Kona oceanfront restaurant is again open for service, providing fine oceanfront dining in Keauhou at the water’s edge. There are enough world class beaches up and down the coast for you to explore a different one each day!
The condo was upgraded in 2015, and new carpet installed in 2018. The condo also has vaulted ceilings in every room giving it a very large open feel. There are three lanais in unit.
The spacious main lanai is oceanfront off of the living room and the two back lanais are off of the master bedroom and guest bedroom facing the mountains. We keep the condo stocked with snorkels, masks, fins, boogie boards, floaties, beach towels and a cooler so you're ready to start your vacation as soon as you check in!
You have several dining options. You can enjoy meals with seating for four at the glass table in the dining room or you can enjoy your meals oceanfront on the main lanai. You can also dine at the small table for two in the kitchen.
The spacious kitchen provides guests with all of the amenities and appliances to create gourmet meals right in the condo. Hawaiian Koa wood cabinets, tiled floors and granite countertops compliment this large, open kitchen with lots of cabinets for storage.

Great for our 3 generations. We especially liked the location- near to everything, yet peaceful and relaxing.
Loved that porch!
This was a perfect base for our big island vacation. Very convenient location just south of Kailua-Kona. Rooms were nice and spacious. Kitchen was well maintained and had all the utensils we needed. Also the house was well stocked with all the beach items we could use including boogie boards, chairs, snorkels and a cooler. We opted to use the air-conditioning and we were glad we did, particularly with the upstairs bedroom.
The highlight for us though was the porch. From morning coffee, to evening dinner we spent tons of time listening to the waves and enjoying being outside. The view was exactly as pictured and the area below it was open and quiet.
This has been our most favorite VRBO!
Great views. Well kept property. As advertised.
Property was as advertised. Loved sitting out on the lanai overlooking the bay. This is minor overall, but the master bath shower is in a large jacuzzi tub. Not easy to get in and out of and while clean, it was quite dated. Great views and quiet. Lots of space in the unit and well supplied including beach gear. Grounds very well kept. Three pools to choose from. Ocean pool has access to short trail along the shore with volcanic rock. Easy access to grocery store, gas station, etc. and short drive to downtown.
Relaxing with view of the cove. Best of both worlds.
Comfortable condo in a great location. It’s the best outfitted among three condos we have rented in the Kanaloa complex. There are a few outdated things like the master bath that we believe the owner is goingto be upgrading soon. Also the twin beds in the second bedroom were not optimal for another couple. Very clean and the local representation was outstanding.
Amazing view accomodations great.
We enjoyed staying at this unit. We woke up to this view and the sound of the ocean. The place had everything we needed for our stay. It is a bit worn but we didn't spend much time in the condo inside, anytime we were around, sitting out on the deck was the only place to be.
The sunsets from the ocean pool is well worth the short walk. We used the bbq several nights nice to have such nice grills available to all.
This was one of best vacations we have experienced
Our family of 5 stayed in this beautiful condo and couldn’t have dreamt of a better vacation in Kona! The place is much nicer then the pictures suggest. The condo is pristine with very comfortable furnishings and beautifully decorated.
Sitting on the deck having breakfast and looking over the bay is breath taking, and the sounds of waves is so comforting. There are decks off both bedrooms as well, unreal.
The beds in both bedrooms are very comfortable, making for a very comfortable experience.
We also loved the scenic walk down to the bay, and all around the area, there is beautiful lush flowers and trees, and so much history to take in.
The complex is very clean, and manicured, palm trees and flowers everywhere, we spent a lot of time at the ocean pool, and you have 2 others if you want more privacy, the centralized barbeques are very close, just a minute from our stay and well taken care. They have an information centre very close to the condo, and the staff are very helpful with more ideas of things to do than you could see in one vacation.
The owner Steve, was wonderful to deal with, you don’t come across that very often in VBRO when the owner is so accommodating, and the property manager Rita was always available to help with questions.
After being there for 4 weeks, we did not want to leave and look forward to staying again soon!
