Kanaloa at Kona
Awesome stay in Kona again
We loved the property stayed in March 2019 and came back this last time in August. It’s the perfect place and we love the view and location.
Everything we need ... would def stay again.
Great property and location in Kona, but A/C policy is an issue
Great property with a huge space and in a good location on the Kona side of the island. Only issue is that the AC (if you decide to pay for it - it's a separate fee on top of the price here) is not turned on upon initial check-in. Since the property is so big, it took over 12 hours to adequately cool down all the rooms to something comfortable. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our time here!
Older property; some problems
The good: location is excellent. Our unit (2 bed + loft) had an ocean view and a view of part of the golf course. The ocean swimming pool is also awesome. The property was not crowded. The grills were great; worked very well and were super clean.
The bad: Air conditioning is truly an issue for the first 8 hours or so. You have to pay extra for it, which I knew, but it took at least 8 hours for the condo to cool off to a reasonable temperature (low 80s). The property desperately needs some updating: several sliding doors in the unit either stuck or fell off the track; hot water was plentiful but the plumbing was really loud; the chairs on the patio were super old and uncomfortable. Pictures online do not really reflect what our unit looked like, at all. Check in was an hour late; we didn't have internet until the next day; we parked where we were directed and displayed our permit but still got a note warning us that we were illegally parked and would be towed; things like that made our stay just a little more stressful than it could have been. Others were having issues too; there was a constant line at the front desk of people having issues (no AC, no hot water, etc). With a little work this place could be fabulous but right now, be prepared for a few hiccups.
Fantastic trip to the Big Island!
We loved our stay at this home. It was perfect for our family of four. The view was beautiful, and the community is close to everything, but also very quiet. We would absolutely stay here again.
Beautifull stay at Kona
We spent 9 days in this beautifull and elegant condo. we enjoied the wunderfull view to the bay. The kitchen was well equiped, therefore we cooked mostly ourselve. Only negative point was, missing air condition.
Extra charge if you want A/C, Great view
Beware: We picked this condo because of it's view from the lanai, said it had A/C and a grill. Upon arrival, we could not find the remote to turn on the A/C and went to the front desk the next morning. On top of their rates, A/C is an additional $30 per night. This was not mentioned in the listing and they keep the remote that turns on the A/C until you pay the additional money. The bed in the 2nd bedroom is extremely hard. The 2nd bedroom and loft get very hot and stuffy. The lanai is a 10. Beautiful view and sound of waves.
