About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Kanaloa at Kona 1002 provides the perfect blend of luxury and value in an unsurpassed Hawaiian setting. This large (1500+ sq.ft.) and elegant condo is situated on the north edge of the Kanaloa complex, facing the Kona Country Club course about 100 yards off the ocean. It's an ideal setting for fun family vacations or tranquil getaways. We've just completed master bathroom renovation, plus recent kitchen and living room upgrades. It's looking better than ever!

The historic Kanaloa at Kona resort is famous for its gorgeous tropical landscaping and peaceful ambiance. Kanaloa features three swimming pool and spa complexes and lighted tennis courts. The location is close to downtown Kona but away from the crowded 'condo row' along Ali'i Drive. There are lots of nice places you can walk right from the front door. Escape the traffic!

Our unit is beautifully decorated and furnished, with a king bed in the master suite and two twin beds (or king conversion) in the second bedroom, plus two sofa beds. Very complete kitchen, TV/DVD/VCR, second TV in master bedroom, washer/dryer, and many extras. Fast wifi throughout. The large, shady lanai is surrounded by greenery, with lovely golf course and mountain views.

Please see the slideshow on our owner's website and our Kona condo pictures here on VRBO. Please contact Scott or Jen and let us help you plan your trip to the Big Island. Mahalo!

About The Owner

The Norris family has been traveling to Hawaii for years. We have listed this great Kanaloa at Kona condo on VRBO since we purchased it in 2001.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2001

Why The Owner chose Kailua-Kona

We have stayed at many places in Kona and we looked at everything on the market. Kanaloa at Kona simply stood out from the rest, and as soon as we saw this unit the decision was easy. For overall size and quality, plus the great location and expansive setting, Kanaloa is tops.

What makes this condo unique

For us one of the big things is traffic--or lack of it, when staying at Kanaloa. We have rented ocean view units at the Bali Kai and others where you get a nice view--from the living room. But in 2BR units the second bedroom may be facing the street! Step outside in those places and there's nowhere to walk or run except up and down the bike lane on Ali'i Drive. So we love Kanaloa where you can step outside and walk barefoot on lawns down to the shoreline, or stroll along the oceanfront or over to the nearby marina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know we enjoyed staying at your home in Kona. You have a really nice place and our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. Thanks so much for opening your home to us and providing all the information for your home and the island. Everything went well. We had a great vacation in Hawaii and can’t wait until we can go back again.

Great complex, spacious unit!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great place for our family to stay. The condo is large! Our girls loved the twin beds in the bedrooms. The bathrooms are large and both are beautifully remodeled. The master bath looks like a new model home. Love the spacious kitchen. The grassy area was great for the kids to play around. There were boogie boards, beach towels, sand toys, beach chairs, cooler....all we needed. We enjoyed the privacy of this unit by not having any other neighbors in view. We loved the pools! I would highly recommend staying here!

Great Unit - Great Location - Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have used this unit several times while visiting the Big Island. It has always been comfortable and fills just like home to us. We enjoy its many amenities and location - it's the perfect place for a memorable vacation. The proximity to snorkeling, shopping and other activities can't be beat. We love the convenience of a good shopping center just up the hill from the condo that has a good grocery store, drug store, restaurants, Post Office and other types of shopping available. The Kanaloa complex is well maintained and they keep the grounds, pools, tennis courts looking beautiful. This condo is a good value and a must stay.

Great location, great views, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very comfortable and well located. While it’s indeed not that updated, I think for where it is, what it has, and the price, it’s great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We have just (May 2018) finished a complete remodel of the master bathroom and shower, which is the part of the unit that was really showing its age. And things like bedding, towels, decorative items etc. have all been replaced and upgraded in late 2017 and early 2018.

Our vacation in this condo was unforgettable! We had planned to spend a few days driving around the island, but after staying here just one night we called Scott to see if we could possibly stay a few more nights here. Not only is the condo fully stocked with everything you need for an active vacation, but all the furnishings are so comfortable, the views and the property grounds are gorgeous, and the pool overlooks a breathtaking coastal view of the ocean.

The layout of the home is spacious and all one much better than climbing stairs! Rooms are large, chairs are comfortable, everything is very clean and there is a feeling of warmth throughout.

It was so convenient to snorkeling just down the road, as well as a short drive to Two Step beach for amazing diving. Shopping is very close, and golfing is out your back door.

No reason to look any further, you have found the BEST!

great location for the east coast of the big island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here over the holidays. We have three kids, ages 15, 20 and 23. The bedding worked out beautifully, our King bed was delighful, the two twins worked well in the other room and the 15 year old loved having the large sofa bed to herself with her own TV. The location was great for getting to kayaking down the coast, snorkelling at TWO steps and visiting the place of refuge. The food stores were just a 5 minute drive up the road and the touristy bit of Kona is close enough yet far enough away! Despite being a bit of a drive to Hapuna and Maune Kea Beaches, it really wasn't a big deal compared to rush hour at home.

My only suggestion would be to absolutely keep the door of the washer open when not in use as the seal has molded and has a mildewy smell that will eventually be very costly to change. We didn't know about maintenance coming around to spray in the suite, which was a bit of a surprise, but they were very accommodating and said they would return after we left.

All in all a great location for a family holiday.
