We've stayed in Keahou Bay area for the past 16 years. We have alternated between Kanaloa at Kona and Kona by The Sea. Over the years we've stayed in 10 different units at Kanaloa. Some have been operated by Outrigger Hotels but more recently we have stayed in 3 different ones that are privately owned but managed by Aloha Condos.... More

I booked unit 3702 on my own via their website. I wrote to the ower days later to check up on my reservation request. He confirmed in email I had the condo and he would charge 20% to my card as a deposit. All was well and I was charged the deposit on 5/14/07 for my upcoming week stay in... More

The 2 other times we had been to Kanaloa at Kona, we booked through AAA, it was okay, but didn't have a choice of condos. This time I went to the web-site Alohacondos.com, and loved it. I got to look at every Condo they had, both inside and out. I knew that my condo would be perfect for us, because... More

We traveled with 10 and 12 year old boys and this condo was perfect for us. We had a one-bedroom unit which was very spacious. The washer and dryer came in really handy. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were very comfortable. Three pools and two tennis courts were well utilized. Our unit was billed as partial ocean... More

Stayed in a 2bed, 2 bath plus loft unit rented directly from the owner. Found this unit on VRBO. It was ocean side, so sitting on the Lanai watching the boats go out in the morning, the outrigger canoes etc. was wonderful. Although the unit had not been remodeled recently, it was great. Very clean, everything worked, and it was... More

My family rented "Solitude" for a week and loved it. This condo had a wonderful view of the ocean, AC, and just about anything you might need for a weeklong stay. Booking with the owner Denise was a breeze. There was plenty of space for five adults, it was close to the attractions and very clean. I would love to... More

We just returned from the Big Island where we wound up our stay with 4 nights at the Kanaloa at Kona. We stayed in unit 1801, rented through AlohaCondos. The unit is directly in front of the water, with only the lava rock in sight. The patio is a great place to watch for wildlife, enjoy the sunset, read a... More

We have stayed at several condos at Kanaloa over the last 10 years and this by far was the best one. The lanai with sunsets every night was outstanding. You have an oceanfront view and view of the golf fairway. It is fun to watch people golfing. They have extra amenities such as beach umbrellas, beach shoes, beach chairs, towels,snorkel... More

My family and I just returned from a week long vacation at the Kanaloa at Kona resort on the Big Island. We were so fortunate to find the "Solitude" unit (3004) which we rented directly through the owner, Denise.
