My wife and I took my mom here for her 65th b-day and it was great. Very clean and well taken care of. We are definately going to tell our friends about this place.
This condo has probably the best location on the property. We have stayed at two other condos and liked them but the view and sound of the ocean cannot be beat. It was a stay with my 86 year old mother and my daughter and son in law, along with my husband. The only problem I can see is if someone has a knee or mobility issue. There are 25 steps to get to the main floor. The condo is large with the standard amenities. Nice lanai which we almost never left because of the view and crashing surf.
The second shower head in the master bath was not working and the spa tub did not work as well. Not much of a problem.
Overall it was a great place to stay for 9 days.
We had such a wonderful time in Kona. The views from this condo were breathtaking and I enjoyed every morning on the lanai with my coffee, listening to the waves. The condo is equipped with everything you need and minutes from one of the best snorkeling beaches and other great beaches. We enjoyed every moment and can't wait to return!
Beautiful place with incredible views that you wouldn't find anywhere else. Everything in the condo was just as advertised except one of the shower heads in the master bathroom was under construction. The remaining shower head served us well. We have stayed at other Kanaloa oceanfront condos but this was our favorite. The grounds and swimming pools are top notch and the maintenance person for the condo showed up at 7 pm to answer an AC question. No need to look any where else if you are heading to Kona
The condo was awesome and the complex was very nice. We loved the 3 pool options and loved being in a condo residence, rather than a resort. We mostly had the pool to ourselves. We had one minor mishap with the screen door not opening, but the maintenance crew was very quick and attentive and got it open in no time. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
Incredible view, incredible condo, incredible location.
The view was such a treat to have. The waves crashing at your door, watching all the boats and ships, kayaks, and the wildlife. The Sunsets, oh the sunsets!! The condo was so comfortable and big. You WILL need the air conditioning!!! Great furnishings and every thing you need for cooking. We were smart and went to the condo BEFORE we went shopping. The condo offers so many cooking spices, oils, some food, coffee for a few days. The KTA Grocery Store is right up the street. We'll definetly be back to 1804. Thanks so much for a stress free vacation!!!
"No way" was the first thing one of our sons said as we entered the condo for the first time. It was very spacious and comfortable, and we ended up spending a lot of time on the lanai just listening to and watching the surf smash against the rocks beneath us. There were two couples, each with their own bedroom, and our son had his own bedroom up in the loft. The air conditioning was quite nice, and we never had to adjust it during our 8 day stay there.
There are three pools on the property, though we only used the oceanfront pool and the one closest to us. They were quite refreshing, and the spas were also welcome.
The tennis courts are quite close, though we did not use them.
A couple of suggestions for people who rent. If you want to drive over to the volcano via Hilo, the road over Saddle Point is really quite good now. If you're consulting slightly older guides to the Big Island, it may say that it's not a good road. Just the opposite. Except for a quarter mile of road being worked on just outside of Hilo, the road over Saddle Point is probably better than any other road on the Big Island. Most of it is part of the Daniel Inouye Highway. It's a lovely drive and much shorter (and safer) than going the southern route, especially at night.
Also, you should note that all of the snorkel equipment, etc., in the storage off the lanai are leftovers from other renters. None of it is very good, and you're much better off walking or driving up to the Keauhou Shopping Center and buying inexpensive snorkeling equipment at the CVS/Lonn store there. In addition, there is a KTA shopping center there to buy food and beverages. There is also an Urgent Care Center there, but they don't accept insurance cards. You have to pay cash and then bill your insurance for reimbursement.
As for places to snorkel and body surf, we would recommend Two Step as the first choice. It's near a National Park to the south. Closer in to town is Magic Sands. Much better for kids and adults not wanting to slice open any part of their bodies on the rocks. Finally, in town and near the pier, is a lovely area (with a nice park) where you can swim without having to deal much with the rocks. Not a lot to see if you're snorkeling, but little kids might like it. To give you an idea of the area, it's a place where swimming teachers work with little kids.
We hope this has been helpful.
