What Past Guests Are Saying
An outstanding, peaceful place to stay right on the ocean
The condo was exceptionally clean, comfortable and well appointed to accomodate our five-person family. The lanai overlooked a bay of the ocean and was a delightftul place to have breakfast or read and relax. The kitchen was well appointed and the dishwasher and clothes washer and drier were very useful. An amplitude of towels, renewed daily, and of beach towels were supplied. The whole area was secure and safe to walk around in and enjoy the pools and the beach.
Perfect in Paradise
Condo 3601 in Kanaloa at Kona was great! You couldn't get a more picture perfect a accommodation overlooking a beautiful bay. The grounds, gardens, and pools were lovely and well-kept. The condo itself was very well-equipped with anything plus more that one would need for their vacation. The owners even left welcome gifts for us. The surreal sound of the ocean from the lanai was a comforting sound. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kanaloa at Kona 3601.
The condo and complex was everything we expected! The condo is exactly as you see in the video tour. It is beautifully decorated and immaculate. The condo is very private and even sitting on the lanai it seems as if the view is yours alone. It is plenty large for a family of four. The walk-in closets and large bathrooms were a bonus. Our girls, ages 18 and 21, commented that they loved the condo and location so much they would be willing to give up their separate rooms at home to live in this condo!
Getting to the condo was easy thanks to the directions provided by Chuck. Check-in was a breeze. There was a wonderful basket of fresh fruit, jams, and Kona coffee from the local farmers market to greet our arrival. We can't even express how fabulous it was to eat breakfast on the lanai each morning and listen to the waves and watch the boats, kayakers, and snorkelers.
Everything you could want is provided for in the condo and then some. In addition to all the snorkel and beach gear, there was a small ice chest and ice packs and even binoculars for taking in all the beautiful views.
It was also very convenient to shopping, with a farmer's market on Saturday morning (there is another a bit farther on Wednesday).
We highly recommend this condo!

We'd like to thank you Lynn, for taking the time to write such a glowing
review. We've put a lot of thought and energy into providing special
amenities at our condo so that our guests will really feel at home and enjoy their stay in Hawaii. Your review describing and appreciating so many of these features have made it all worthwhile.

Nice location. Great View. Well furnished. Comfortable.Service was timely and adequate.
If Chuch Buser had not handled the reservation so well I would not be spending my time on this review
We will rent 3601 again
This was our 6th time at Kanaloa over the past 7 yrs and all but once on the ocean. Unit 3601 is our favorite so far. The lanai faces a small bay that often had great wave action with lots of surfers to watch.There were snorkelers when the bay was quiet. The approach to the entry is very private and at ground level. Very nice landscaping. We like the floor plan of the --01 units. This unit was very clean,attractive,well equipped with updated kitchen.When we came in there was a basket of goodies waiting for us, a nice touch. We opted for a/C but could have done without. The unit building is immediately to the left of the property's entry gate and has dedicated covered parking as well as some open spots for visitors
Everything worked,there is wi-fi and snorkel, beach towels, umbrella,etc available. Kanaloa property has 3 sets of pools,hot tubs,barbeques,changing rooms as well as lighted tennis courts and is over all quite attractive. It's close to markets,dining and golf. We had a good 3 weeks
Quiet and Beautiful
Perfect place to stay on the big island!! You literally stay right on the ocean. Has great swimming pools and is a great place for families and couples that don't want to stay in just another hotel.
Everything you need
This condo has it all. Mellow atmosphere. Great location. Wonderful view with big surf sounds. Clean and well equipped. Nice pool areas. Everything you need for a perfect Hawaiian vacation.
Awesome location, great condo!
The condo is beautifully decorated and supplied. The location on He'eia Bay is wonderful. Couldn't ask for more. We'll be back!
A home away from home
I loved the video tour because the condo was exactly the way you saw it. There was great communication and ease in going into the property.
The home was warm and comfy with a view of a small bay. All the amenities were excellent and everything worked.
I liked the location and view the best. The only thing is with 2 adults,not married, we needed a double bed in the other room in lieu of two twins. However, for a family or people who don't mind twin beds, this unit is ideal
Response from Aloha Condos - 11/04/2011
We're happy that you enjoyed your stay in our condo while visiting Hawaii. However, we regret that you were dissatisfied with the twin bed setup. Under "Features and Amenities" our website offers the option of having either twin beds or a king-size bed in the guest bedroom. Even if you had neglected to make your wishes know in advance, our local contact here in Kona would have been more than happy to convert the twins to a king had he been notified. When you plan your next visit you may indicate your choice of bed configuration in the guest bedroom on the reservation and have it ready and waiting for you upon your arrival.

Awesome spot, loud waves, beautiful condo
One of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The lanai is perfect! It looks like this is a quiet beach cove in the pictures, and I was so pleasantly surprised to realize that the waves crash in below the lanai loud enough to hear throughout the living area of the condo. We loved it!!! Everything was perfect.
Orange County, CA
Perfect in Every Way
My husband, 20-year-old son, and I loved this condo. It is gorgeous and incredibly spacious. Every morning I came straight out to the living room to enjoy the view. I opened the sliding glass doors to hear the ocean. The owners have provided everything a vacationer might need. Aloha Condos is excellent as well. I will rent through them on my next trip to Hawaii.
Siloam Springs, AR
Could not be better
I can't tell you how wonderful this condo was. Everything was fabulous and could not have been better. We would absolutely return.
San Jose, CA
Awesome! - would definitely stay here again.
This condo was top notch. the pictures didn't do it justice. It was beautiful, clean, private, quite and right on the ocean. the view from the lanai was gorgeous...you look right out at an ocean cove. It's a few steps to both pools and tennis courts. The drive into town was about 10 minutes. the drive to kona and snorkeling destinations was also about 10 min. There was no fault with this place at all. There was a *tinsy* bit of construction noise when at the pool by the ocean..but it was short. Pool by the ocean was incredible. Condo had many helpful books..hawaii sights and restaurant menus. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who would like a peaceful stay on hawaii. The rental process was also very easy compared to other places I stayed. I was blown away and plan to stay here again if i can! Seriously awesome...
San Jose, CA
Perfect vacation condo
Great condo. Very clean, well equipped kitchen. All the amenities one could ask for. The lanai was so great to sit out and have our breakfasts and dinners. Couldn't have asked for more.
Redondo Beach, CA
Comfortable and Relaxing Condo For Family
Unit 3601had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing vacation. The beds were very comfortable. We did not need air cond. Pools were wonderful - the pool by the ocean is now open. We used everything - Bbq's, beach equipment, all linens (excellent quality), washer dryer, cooked over 1/2 our meals and sat on beautiful lanai, reference books - all was perfect! We are planning our trip for next year!
Quiet,Very nicely furnished and fully equipped,Beautiful View
We stayed here for a week celebrating our 50th anniversary. It was the perfect condo for us. It is located within beautiful grounds(my wife said it was like walking around in the Garden of Eden) with the lanai overlooking a small cove with the ocean waves breaking against the shoreline,sounds of a variety of birds,a quiet peacefulness, and private location.The condo is beautifully furnished with care and equipped with everything you could need or want.We would highly recommend.
Great Condo with great view. Condo is well appointed. Aloha group was helpful as well. Master bath sink plug broken. Master bath toilet flush broken. Neighbors in 3700 unit very noisy at 5 am. Overall- great stay. Jim
Response from Aloha Condos - 09/06/2010
Thank you for calling our attention to these problems. Since your stay in condo 3601, the sink plug in the master bathroom has been re-connected. The defective part has been replaced.
The flush mechanism is no longer a problem in the master bathroom. The toilets have been upgraded to new raised, water-conserving Kohler commodes.
In the future, if there are any maintenance needs, please call our local contact person. He is very responsive and will arrange to have necessary repairs made immediately.
As for noisy neighbors, some people arriving from the mainland or other countries forget that they are in a time zone that is different from where they live. This can happen in any resort area. Kanaloa has regulations restricting noise between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. A call to Security will promptly summon someone who will politely inform the offending party.
Thank you again for your comments, and I am glad that overall, you enjoyed the many amenities provided for your comfort in condo 3601.
Stewart Berkshire, Owner, Kanaloa at Kona, Condo 3601
Great place to stay
Thanks for making this wonderful condo available to us. It was perfect for two couples. It was clean, well-outfitted, and had a terrific view of the ocean. Aloha Condos made the financial part of the transaction easy. We have rented vacation condos from them in the past and have always been pleased with the quality of their service.
cannon beach, oregon
felt like home
loved, love, loved our week staying at this condo. we've traveled to kailua-kona several times and i'd like to start by saying the KTA grocery store up the hill has improved so much over the past couple years. you can get all sorts of local produce (much of it organic) and their prices are comparable; for the big island, at least. costco also has some great local stuff. that being said -- the kitchen in this unit was awesome! the appliances themselves all worked great (that blender was crazy!), but more so the way it was furnished was the nicest part. there were herbs and seasonings and extra paper towels and jars of various condiments were actually left in the fridge! they supplied cleaning products and rags and dish, dishwasher and laundry detergent. there was every gadget imaginable (took us a week to figure out what the pineapple corer was)! we weren't left needing a thing. it's very rare to visit a condo that supplies all those extras.
the comforts of home continued throughout the unit. it was very clean, and while it didn't feel brand new, it was super cozy. plenty of space for 3 adults and a toddling 1-year-old. i had inquired about a crib before our trip for the baby and some rental companies were referred to me. those places are ridiculously expensive so i decided to just have the babe sleep with me. the owners took it upon themselves to purchase a play yard for the unit, and charged us a very fair rate for it. the extras continued all the way out to the lanai with a gorgeous view, a mini fridge for all the drinks and a closet stuffed full of beach chairs, pool toys, boogie boards and even snorkel gear.
this trip was one of the most relaxing so far (as relaxing as possible with a toddler under foot). the pool areas are nice, the water was a little cold, but refreshing at times. the grounds were very serene all around.
i would definitely recommend this condo to a friend traveling to hawaii. we hardly left, and can't wait to get back!
happy with Kona
The Aloha Condos were all we wished them to be.
Our condo was exactly as advertised on the web, clean, modern, fully equipped, with very comfortable amenities. Of course, our location overlooking the crashing surf in the cove directly across from our veranda made our visit even more rewarding.
I would recommend without hesitation, Aloha Condos, Kanaloa at Kona, to all our friends
Home away from home
What a beautiful well appointed place. Great location to do anything on the island yet not burried in the heart of a tourist trap area. Service from Aloha Condos was perfect, e-mails and directions were direct and informative, we will definately use their services again
We loved this beautiful, large condo with a great view.
The condo was very nice, large, and clean. The grounds and pool were very nice. The condo was quiet and well stocked with everything we needed. The local contact was very helpful in coming over right away on our arrival day to help us turn on the A/C which is operated on a key lock. The view was wonderful over the bay and we enjoyed the many turtles that were there (even more than at Turtle Beach down the road). The condo is in a great central location and I would definitely recommend it.
Snowbirds in training
I am a bit hesitant to write a review, for fear that the next time we want to stay here it will be booked. But to be true to the "aloha spirit", we have to say that this was one of our favorite places we have ever stayed. The condo is fully equipped with everything you might need (including some great books on local activities). It is also in a very quiet location, overlooking the ocean and a little bay where you can watch the surfers every morning while you drink your coffee. Hopefully we get back here some day.
Kanaloa at Kona, Unit 3601
My husband and I stayed in unit 3601 for a week in December. Although it was just the two of us, we opted for this unit because of the view and proximity to water. It did not disappoint. The lanai was a perfect spot to watch the waves, and had us thinking we could go jump in the water. As it turns out, the waves break hard at this location, so it was not ideal for me as a beginner. But the beauty and sound were enjoyed throughout our stay.
This home is obviously loved, and the stocked kitchen was greatly appreciated. All the pots, pans, and accessories you could ask for, not to mention the spices, oils, etc. This resulted in us saving a bundle on dining out, and resdiscovering how much we enjoy preparing meals.
We enjoyed the free wireless internet, which, along with the books in the condo, allowed us to do some research each day to make sure we had our plans straight. It also allowed us to stay in touch with the folks back home.
The tile in the home is orignal, and is the only dated feature. By no means does it require replacement, but it does show the guests the period in which the condo was originally constructed.
We enjoyed the pools on site, especially the adult only pool, which we would escape to if too many kiddos were playing at the main pool. We did not order from the resturant/bar at the main pool. They were awaiting their liquor license, and were serving a limited menu.
Kanaloa at Kona
This was our second time to Kanaloa at Kona but our first time at this unit. It was very a relaxing stay...very quiet and private. We enjoyed our short 5 day stay and will definitely be going back for a longer period.
This is a very well furnished, lovely condo. The view oc the ocean was fantastic, and so was the singing of the birds. We stayed here for ten nights, hoping to stay a lot more next time!
No Help from Aloha Condos
Aloha Condos did nothing to make us feel welcomed. Our checkin instructions were not sent to us until we emailed and called several times before arriving. Once we got there we did not receive a welcome package, discribing the facilities, and no one at the front deck would help us because you are not a resort guest. "You're with Alohacondos, it's like a curse, no one will even talk to you. They wouldn't even let us have a map of the resort. When we called aloha condos about the information, we were told to look for a packet on the livingroom coffee table. I told them there was nothing on the table they said it should have been placed there but never provided the information. I would never rent from Aloha condos again.
The owners were nice, they came and turned on the air conditioner (which costs an extra $15.00 a day) if they hadn't done that Aloha Condo Service would have charged us an additional $25. to unlock the thermostat.
. Being right on the ocean was lovely. The pool and bar were enjoyable. The grounds were very nice. The apartment was adequate.
Having the second bedroom bathroom in the hallway was inconvenient and lacked privacy.
Dealing with Aloha Condos was very disheartening and total not in the Hawaiian spirit. DON"T GO ALOHA CONDOS>
Response from Aloha Condos - 05/20/2009
It's unfortunate that our guest didn't receive the information sent to them or contact us before their arrival saying that they didn't know how to check-in to the condo.
The check-in instructions were emailed 30 days prior to arrival, with a follow up reminder one week before arrival. Included in these instructions were specific details with directions to the resort, how to register with the security guard at the resort entry, and how to find and access this beautiful, privately-owned condo. Gaining access doesn't require using the Outrigger front desk as they only manage units in their rental pool.
The information guide was inadvertently placed on a shelf in the kitchen with other helpful guide books. These include appliance directions and menus from recommended restaurants and cookbooks. It is boldly labeled "Kanaloa Info".
Aloha Condos does not charge the guests for necessary services, including unlocking a thermostat. Guests can, and do, call and receive prompt and courteous personal attention for any concern they may have.
The floor plan is clearly shown on the website. Guests often comment on how they enjoy the spacious size (1500+ sq ft) of this unit, including the conveniences offered by the layout, not to mention its beautiful location on the little bay.
This review is quite unique and a surprise to us. The owner met the tenants when he came to turn on the A/C control and once again, as they were leaving. Both of these encounters were very cordial and complimentary in nature, with no complaints expressed.
We feel very fortunate to have received more 900 FlipKey reviews and thousands of verbal complements on how Aloha Condos truly conveys to our guests the Aloha Spirit that makes Hawaii a wonderful place to be.

Stewart Berkshire, Owner, Kanaloa at Kona 3601
A great place to stay on the Big Island. It had everything we needed. It was comfortable and away from town. We had a view of the ocean and complete privacy. We recommend it 100 percent. Thank you.
