About the property

Awesome resort location, fairway view, 3 BR/3 BA, AC included, Ironman clos

Kanaloa at Kona is managed by Castle Resorts. Kanaloa was one of two resorts in Hawaii to receive an award recognizing excellence in providing guests with an exceptional travel and lodging experience.

This spacious unit has two bedrooms and two baths on the main floor and a third bedroom, bathroom and sitting area in the loft and is large enough to accommodate 6 people in comfort and privacy. We recently upgraded the AC in the condo and have decided to include this service for your comfort and convenience. From the spacious main lanai you can enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails in a park-like setting with views of the Kona Country Club Ocean Course 11th Fairway. Well furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, this unit is the perfect vacation home.

The Master Bedroom has a comfortable King size bed and offers a separate lanai overlooking the garden area. The second bedroom on the main floor has two twins which may be converted into a King if desired. The third bedroom in the loft has two twin beds and offers a private bath and a sitting area. Kanaloa at Kona has three pools, one of which is oceanfront, three hot tubs, two tennis courts, numerous shared grill/BBQs, and parking included.

Keauhou Bay is within walking distance and is well known for kayak, canoe and paddle boarding; checkout both the Keauhou Canoe Club and Ocean Safaris (rentals and adventure tours). Snorkel, dive and fishing boats also leave from here. There is also a comfy park with restrooms, pebble beach and a sand volleyball court.

Kahalu`u Beach Park, also known as Turtle Beach or Snorkel Beach, is a mile and a half away and is hands down the best snorkel beach on The Big Island. Snorkel rental is available on-site along with showers, restrooms, picnic tables and beach area for relaxation and sunbathing.

Then, after a busy day of exploring the Big Island and its various activities and adventures, you can come home to all the comforts in a quiet, relaxing setting to plan your next adventure.

About Bob and Ginni Sommerlot

We own our condo/home with our son. We are Oregonians and enjoy wintering in Kona. Having lived on Kodiak Island, AK for 25 years we found ourselves missing the water and island life. This is a great alternative. We chose The Big Island because it is spread out and has a lot of different life styles and activities to choose from.

Bob and Ginni Sommerlot purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bob and Ginni Sommerlot chose Kona Coast

We bought our unit in Kanaloa at Kona because the complex is quiet, very well maintained and safe. We also like the way the units are situated on the property giving the complex a comfortable, friendly feeling. We like fact that we are located by the water but are not subject to the noise of any nearby busy streets or highways. Our unit itself is on the second level and away from parking and traffic where it is quiet and private. We have enough room to share with family or friends. We have spent several years visiting different Hawaiian islands but found this was the place we enjoyed the most.

What makes this condo unique

We especially enjoy the front lanai. We start our day sitting here with our first cup of coffee. In fact, I think we've eaten all our meals out there! We recently upgraded the AC in the condo and are now including it for your comfort and convenience. The kitchen is designed so we can fix meals together if we so choose. It is well furnished with everything you need to prepare meals. The floor plan allows plenty of privacy for individuals, no matter how many guests are staying.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is great for families. My two adult children were able to come on vacation with us. They each had their own bedroom and bathroom, and plenty of space for the family. The grounds are beautiful and the shopping center above offers restaurants and grocery store. If you are traveling in the warm months, be sure to arrange for air conditioning, it is worth the extra charge to be comfortable. The owners were great, very nice folks.

First Class! Perfect stay for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is immaculate! The owners must stay there a large part of the year as it is better maintained than any VRBO I have used. The location is perfect for all ages. Lots of pools, tennis courts and grills on the grounds and walking distance to a great snorkel cruise. We'll be back!!

So very much more than just a vacation property rental. Everything about the property made our 9 day stay (son, daughter-in-law, two granddaughters, from New Zealand and a grandfather from Washington DC ) very comfortable and very enjoyable. The condo appointments were very tasteful and accommodating for the whole family. Also, the comunity within which the condo is located is beautifully maintained and, with its pools, paths, BBQ setups and tropical garden environment made saying goodbye difficult.

Wonderful All Around

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the stairs (this is a second floor condo with 3rd floor loft area) this is a great condo with all the necessaries and a lot of extras. It was well stocked with Staples and extras left behind such as sugar,seasonings, sunscreen, etc. We left behind a pound of coffee. It's nice not having to hit the stores not just for food but sundries as well. Location is great. Far enough from downtown Kailua-Kona to be quiet and private but real near Keauhou shopping center with a KTA grocery and a Longs pharmacy. Not ocean front condo but the property is. View is of the golf course so no crashing surf and kids so actually an advantage if you're looking for quiet at home after a day of sightseeing and activity. The AC agreement included is for 76 degrees. We had very warm weather and 76 with all the ceiling fans was very comfortable. Condo is quite spacious overall. And furniture is quite comfortable and mattresses nicely firm. We had a great stay and you will too as long as you don't have unreasonable expectations as I have seen from other reviewers. Pricing is based on a base price for two and then a per diem per each additional person - a little surprising but okay as long as you know. We had two cars and never had a parking problem finding spaces close to the unit. We've done the condo thing many times on the islands and this is one of the better ones.

Perfect Property on the Coast of Keauhou

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully spacious vacation home located within the Kanaloa at Kona resort. After our very long day of traveling from the East Coast, it was so nice to settle in to Bob and Ginni's tastefully decorated condo with very comfortable furniture and beds. It is very easy to feel right at home here. The full kitchen was a treat and was truly stocked with everything we needed. There were only 3 of us in our party, so we really didn't need the additional space of the loft with its bedroom, bathroom and sitting area, but it was actually great to have as it allowed us to spread out and not get in each other's way. The condo's main lanai looks out over the golf course which means it is a quiet retreat and the perfect place to watch the birds. The mynah's are quite the characters and the yellow billed cardinals and Japanese white eye's were frequent visitors in the trees next to the lanai as I enjoyed my tea in the morning. The weather while we were there was in the high 80's and quite stifling outside so the included air conditioning was very refreshing and kept the unit comfortable. The little extras included with the condo were very much appreciated. We had toys to use at the beach or the pool, a cooler to take with us when we went to the beach, real beach towels, and the owners even supplied laundry detergent!

We enjoyed the 3 pools and hot tubs and were very spoiled since many times we had the pool all to ourselves. In the evenings we went out to watch the waves crash on the rocks and view the sunset. The shopping center up the street is so convenient and has many restaurants in addition to the supermarket, drug store and book store. I love the farmer's market that is held in the parking lot there on Saturday mornings. Just down the street is little He'eia Bay where we watched the snorkelers from our perch on the rocks.

This was the perfect place for us to call home while visiting our family in Kona. Ginni answered all my questions and was a dream to work with. I can't wait for our next visit!

We bought our condo at Kanaloa at Kona because of the way it was situated in the complex and that the complex itself is usually quiet. We are close to a great snorkel beach. We can walk or drive to the Sheraton or Sam Choy's for a nice meal with great views. We like the farmers market at the Sheraton parking lot. It is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There is also a market on Saturday at the shopping center. The shopping center offers anything you could ask for. Otherwise, though the island is large, any kind of activity is within driving distance.
