They say location is everything. Unit 604 is on the 11th fairway of the Kona Country Club Ocean Golf Course. As a golfer, sitting on the lanai just outside of the dining area and watching as golfers came through the course was exceptional. The accomodations were more than we expected in terms of comfort and class. This was the first... More

we stayed in unit 1801 and booked directly with the owner. It is a beautiful condo and well maintained. Right on the ocean with a beautiful view. We would recommend this unit at Kanaloa highly.

I rented Unit 3104 at the Kanaloa at Kona from VRBO.com. This unit is an Oceanfront 3 bedroom (actually 2 bedrooms and a loft). The unit is well maintained, clean, and has a lanai sitting directly in front of the Pacific Ocean. We stayed here with my parents and 3 boys and were very comfortable. In general, the property Kanaloa... More

Our daughter set up our Hawiian trip. She researched places to stay and booked us in what she decided as the best place for her parents! We agree! We flew in in the dark and the instructions to our condo were easy to follow. The area of the Island is nice, even in the dark. When we opened the unit... More

We had a fabulous time in Kona - 1605 in Kanaloa was outstanding. Probably the best location in the complex - we saw whales from the lanai, watched the surf crashing and golfers teeing off - the condo felt like home with many personal touches and beautiful artwork. The kitchen is fully equiped & I love to cook. the Master... More

Stayed 7 nights in Unit #604 at Kanloa at Kona. Location: Location, Location, Location! This is an excellent location for exploring the Big Island. Quieter and less expensive than staying in Kona. There is great snorkelling 5 minutes up the road. Quick access to the main Queen K highway. There's also a shopping center with market and movie theater just... More

This unit is privately owned and we contacted the owners directly to book this. It was our second stay in the same unit. The lanai faces the ocean and the golf course. The view is magnificent and you get a nice breeze in the evenings and throughout the night. It is a nice quiet, safe resort and we have stayed... More

We booked this condo 5 months in advance directly over the phone through the hotel 1800 number and were qouted 1400$. When we checked in the receptionist said that the total cost is 1550$ and she doesn't know why we were quoted 1400$. Luckily I had the print-out of our itenerary with the total cost. She started to argue and... More

We have just returned from a fabulous 8 day stay at Unit #604 at Kanloa at Kona. The unit is managed by Aloha Condos not the Outrigger chain so check out Aloha's website for pictures and details. There were 7 in our party and everyone could sleep on a bed. The master is huge with a walk-in closet and bathroom.... More
