We stayed for 6 nights in June 2015 and had a two bedroom condo looking over the golf course. The view was nice and the small outside area was peaceful. You can watch the very bright green lizards climb the plants. Considering the beach views are not spectacular the greens view is pretty good so don't be disappointed if it... More

Our party of 8 rented 2 condos, one ocean front and one fairway view. Both were spacious and well equipped. The ocean view was more expensive but well worth it for the view and the cooling breeze. Although the location is quiet, it is an easy walk to a boat harbour where tours leave from, and a 'no frills' waterfront... More

If I am ever back in the area this is without a doubt where I'll stay. Our group of 8 had two of the 2 bedroom units, one down by the pool, and the other back by the golf course. Both of the units were great. If you are like me and have looked at every hotel and condo on... More

We checked in June 4th for 5 nights. The unit we were in did not have an ocean view, but was very spacious and clean. The bathroom could stand a remodel, otherwise it was a great place to stay. I liked the washer and dryer in the unit. The kitchen was also fully stocked, which is nice if you want... More

This was a great place to stay for our family of five. It was much more reasonably priced than a hotel would have been for us. Plus we could cook breakfast and keep food for luck as well. We had a beautiful ocean view to enjoy while drinking our coffee each morning. The condo was well stocked and clean. We... More

Outrigger properties are great and this property so far is our favorite. We arrived late and were able to reach security to check us in. Our two bedroom, partial ocean view was perfect. It had plenty of room and the view was just right. We did not use AC because it had plenty of windows and ceiling fans in each... More

Perfect place for vacations. Good location, close to the airport, shops, restaurants and other facilities. It is a residential condon, well furnished, clean, everything working fine in every room (TV, kichten, laundry, bedrooms and bathrooms). Beautiful gardens, clean pools. Very nice and hepful staff. Quiet, except for some build workers in the next apartment. Good for families, couples or friends... More

Kanaloa is located directly on the ocean in a residential area that is quiet and low key. The units are unusually large and well built for condos in the Kona area. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well cared for. Overall the property is exceptional. We loved the unit we rented through VRBO. It was directly on the water and... More

Although we had been to other Hawaiian Islands, this was a first trip to the Big Island. We were very confused as to where we wanted to stay? I used Sunquest Vacations to help book this condo and they were very helpful. Almost booked a couple of condos closer to town and were very glad they we chose Kanaloa at... More

Some of the condos in this complex are magnificent, especially the oceanfront ones. They are poised on a beautiful, lava-rock coastline. Very Hawaiian-feeling grounds, too. We loved these aspects. What we didn't like was the lax service at the front desk. We arrived at 615 pm on 11 May to find no one serving the desk for registration. We had... More
