We were a family of four. Our two girls shared the big sofa bed in the living room. It was really nice to have AC available. View of the pool and ocean. Wifi worked great. Beach gear available for use. Well-stocked kitchen. Handy location near grocery store, restaurants, between Kailua and Kealakekua. Nice owner, gift basket with fruit, jam and coffee upon arrival. Easy checkin/checkout. Would stay there again if I was staying on the Kona coast.

Kanaloa at Kona: Best location in Kona

A Great Winter Vacation
Left on 02/22/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | Dick
The condo was very comfortable, quiet location, and had a perfect view of the ocean from the lanai. We were able to watch the Whales and spinner dolphins swim by from the lanai.
The unit was well stocked with dry goods and household items, but had no cleaning supplies. A trip to Target took care of that.
The Unit does need updating; the bathrooms and kitchen need to be updated with solid surface countertops and modern fixtures and appliances. The bath room tub fixtures/knobs were heavily corroded and questionable every time they were used. The "nineteen eighty's" tile and unsealed grout for counter tops are havens for germs and bacteria. While the washer and dryer are functional, it would be nice if they were updated.
We were scheduled for a mid-stay cleaning (and billed $135), however it did not happen, so we did our own cleaning and vacuuming. The cleaning fee was high compared to Outriggers fee for the same size unit. Al reimbursed us for the mid-stay cleaning. Because of its closeness to the ocean, a "salt film" covers everything.
All in all, we had a great winter vacation.
Very nice Condo

i am not sure why but we did not have a cleaner come the first week of our stay. so we basically looked after ourselves. i do wish there had been more cleaning supplies left in the condo. there was basically nothing. the condo does need a good clean including washing the outside patio. the bed was a bit hard but adequate. the owner is very willing to fix anything that needs fixing. the location is great the evenings are very quiet. we loved the view from the patio the best.
Wonderfully quiet location,amazing oceanviews and absolutely wel

My husband and I Stayed for approximately 10 nights and had an amazing holidya..The resort itself is located at the end of a residetnial area so it is very peaceful and away from the husle and bustle, yet centrally located to shops, tours etc..The condo itself is oceanfront and has a spacious lanai with a wetbar that provides access to views of the surf, sunsets etc..The condo is privately owned by al, who was very kind and granted us a late check out and a welcome basket upon your arrival!! We loved, loved the condo it was so well equipped,,the resort itself is well maintained..We give it a 10 out of 10!!!

Yes this unit is good, no worries here,large 1 bedroom, bed is comfortable and a king size, linens were great,fan in bedroomkept things cool with multiple window shutters to use although 2 of them wouldnt open, but im sure that will be remedied for future, ensuite for master is older but funtional i used it for all my stuff and getting ready while hubby used the main bathroom. We used the main bathroom shower mostly , also fine but older, everything worked the way it should, even your own back lanai to get morning sun with. Nice chairs for that area and table. no worries there! Kitchen also had everything i needed except a coffee grinder, but everything else was good, large fridge stove, no mini anything.Floors are done mostly in tile that is cool for your feet, but i havent mentioned the best part which was the large lanai overlooking pool and water, you will like this as it is great! again, No Worries! Al Gulick was responsive and easy to deal with and i can reccomend this to anyone exept there is quite afew steps to get up to the unit. we will be back im sure. love kona.ooops i forgot the coolers and boogie boards are in the fron lanai cabinet. bye for now carolyn from canada
Wonderful sunsets wowed us.

From first to last the service was quick and competent. The furnishings were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, the location was convenient.
The view of the Pacific was magnificent and overlooking the pool was a plus.
It was a short walk to the grocery and to the bay.
The lack of signs kept our destination a mystery for the first few minutes.
Day in Paradise

Quite, not crowed. The condo was very clean, comfortable & roomy. The owner left some wonderful fruits,coffee&jams.; We have been to most islands and was this island is hotter, and each beach has different things. The snorkeling was wonderful. We will be coming back I think this is my favorite. I appreciate the owners sharing. Olympia Wa.

The area is clean and near enough to hear the waves crashing the shores in the evening. Upon arrival an exotic welcome tray filled with exotic fruits was there for us; lilikoi, mango, avocado to mention a few along with the organic garden these were grown in. We ate in some evenings, grabbed some local food and brought it back to the condo (poi, lomi salmon, kalua pig, lau-lau available at KTI in the nearby shopping center). We enjoyed hiking in the morning and golfing on the Kohala Coast and quiet evenings at the resort.
Kanaloa Condos is very nicely located in a very private setting, we will stay there as long as it remains a hidden paradise for us.
