We stayed at this condo location 4 different trips to Kona. This last time, while we were sleeping someone broke into our room and stole my purse and camera. This happened on our last night. Up until then it was wonderful. You can't judge the entire trip on one mishap. But don't leave your doors unlocked and always close the... More

It was a surprise to us when we arrived that in order to have air conditioning we would have to pay an additional $25 a day. We did pay it, it did make our stay more comfortable, but it was strange that we could never get the temp as cool during the night as during the day. When we arrived... More

The apartment was very big with all facilities that you would need. Staff was very friendly. We have also been given loads of tips on where to go and even discount card for restaurants! We booked when there was a huge discount, it was really good for money. However, I think it is the high end side without promotions. We... More

This was my first time in Hawaii, and the first time using a condo rental for a trip. The good, we stayed in 1204, which is a second level fairway view, one bedroom unit. The unit was clean, with a king bed, was generally clean, but does need updating. The location was great, and not that far from some shopping... More

This really is a great complex - well located, quiet, very nice amenities and for the right units some magnificent views. However, some of the units are on the ground floor facing the golf course - that is, truly facing the golf course which is higher than the level of the units. As a result, you get quite a view...

We stayed at Kanaloa at Kona during the New Years. We rented two condos: a one bedroom and a two bedroom. We rented the two bedroom through Castle directly and got unit 301. The property itself is beautiful. Two large bedrooms, two bathrooms and large living area. We paid the highest rate as it was the holidays and also we're... More

It is good to hear that you enjoyed your overall at Kanaloa. I am disappointed that one of my team members interacted with you in such a negative way. I will work with my Security team as this type of guest interaction is unacceptable. I spoke to your brother in-law but only after you had checked out. I wish I... More

After many trips to Hawaii we are great at judging the rental condos. We have stayed in this complex before but never did we ever get one that was so well kept and so fully stocked. It felt like we had been borrowing a neigbour's place. Our family of 4 would highly recommend Unit 701. You will be delighted as... More

We have stayed at this complex for the past 3 years, this is the first time in this unit. We stayed 2 weeks over the Christmas holiday. Because we paid top dollar for holiday rates and ocean front we expected more. First of all the complex is very well maintained and is conveniently located. Pools are well maintained and clean....

Aloha, There are many units available for rental at Kanaloa. Each unit is individually owned and maintained. For most rental units you should be able to view photos of the unit, so it is important to do your homework before booking your stay. Kanaloa is a beautiful property and it is good to hear that you were able to book... More

We stayed at this complex 12 years ago, and by happenstance booked the same complex again for this trip. We were so glad! We loved the peaceful, tranquil setting, ideal location, and fantastic atmosphere for our family vacation. We stayed in unit 1004, with views overlooking the golf course. It was everything we needed - 3 clean, well kept bedrooms... More

Although it's not super close to town- I truly believe it's one of the better complexes to stay. It's under new management. The landscaping was beautiful. My parents unit was right on the water. Each unit is different inside due to individual ownership. Ours was upgraded. Booked through Aloha condos. Pools were freezing. The shopping center at the top of... More
