This is a well kept condo complex. The vegetation is beautiful, the grounds people are constantly working to keep it looking beautiful. We enjoyed the flowers, the chameleons, and the interesting spiders busy building their webs! Th management helpful. Check in and security helpful and easy. Conveniently located for farmers market, restaurants, groceries, entertainment!

Room Tip: 1803 well appointed and comfortable with a wonderful view!

We arrived after 30 hours travel at 10pm, hungry & tired. No reception, No cafe, no restaurant, no shops. A security chap got us the key. In the condo, - no provisions. We did find 2 tea bags and 2 creamers. Next morning we found the shop ware a mile away but no transport. We found it was in a tsunami area
The condo was in a beautiful area, very peaceful, It was fully equipped and clean, however there was no housekeeping so sheets were not changed in the week we were there but plenty of towels. One good thing was the washer/dryer, as we were going onto Las Vegas we were able to take clean clothes. There were 2 bathrooms
We did enjoy our stay and the 2 mile walk for shops and transport to other areas was uphill but the masses of beautiful flowers, all colours that we usually see as 'exotic' were on the roadside. Pavements are not made up going to the shopping mall so care needs to be taken on the road.
The trolley bus to Kona 6 miles away is $2 each way along a very scenic route along the coast. Would consider returning to Kona but nearer transport and shops.
The 2 inch cockroach we found in the lounge on the last day didnt help the overall experience

Room Tip: If your not jet lagged hire a car

Aloha and thank you for your comments, we will use it to better service our guests. Yes, our property is in a Tsunami zone. With reference to the Big Island, the only exception that I can think of is the Volcano House Hotel.
We provide professional pest control, and even with that, there are times that a pest or insect will get into a unit. Security is 24 hours a day and they will have a professional come and treat any issue regarding unwanted pests.
Again we appreciate your comments and hope you will be able to visit with us again one day.

Kanaloa is a peaceful corner of Hawaiian paradise. Three bedroom ocean front condo on 2nd floor shared with friends which gave us all plenty of room. We actually had two different condo's during our stay and each had different attributes. Both ocean front wth spectacular views over lava rock beds. Classic Hawaiian furnishings with full kitchen. Beds were just OK-not what I'd call hotel quality and linens supplied by condo owner varied in quality. Plenty of room at the pools. You will need a car to get around. Friendly staff and beautful grounds. Give it a go.

Room Tip: 2nd floor condos require walking up 15 stairs--you need to be in shape.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the outrigger at kona kanola condo resort. The condo was very nicely appointed and quite large. The condo could easily sleep 4 people and had 2 baths. The condo amenities were vey nice and there are 3 pools. The ocean view from the condo really made the morning coffee enjoyable. The location makes driving sort of a requirement There aren't any nice beaches for a few miles and resturants are also not within realistic walking distance

Thank you for your comments, I totally agree that a rental vehicle is a must, this is a big island and there is so much to see. Although a complete shopping center is less than a mile away, it is a 15 to 20 minute walk. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed the property and we look forward to a return visit. Happy Holidays!

A friend recommended Outrigger Kanaloa at Kona and we were not disappointed! A beautiful unit with a view to die for, lovely grounds, three pools! We arrived well after midnight, found our building and an attendant in a golf cart came by and helped us find our unit and took our suitcases up the stairs for us. Greatly appreciated after our travels to get there. Note: We used a GPS to find the complex - really helped as it is quite a ways out and away from the airport.

The Aloha representative was very helpful arranging a circle tour of the Island. After that, we were able to take shorter trips to areas of interest. The weather was great and the sound of the surf lulled us to sleep. All in all, a very enjoyable but too short holiday away from home.

Room Tip: We went with the picture of the view from the lanai. We had partial ocean and partial golf course w...

This is a peaceful place very well kept and pleasant. The staff we interacted with were very pleasant and positive as well. The grounds are lovely and there are lots of opportunities for walking. The activities director was helpful without being too pushy. The condo was nicely furnished and very well-equipped with many extras to make the stay easy. The location being about 10 miles from the airport and in a neighborhood type of area made for less traffic noise and for a quiet and peaceful experience.

Room Tip: If an ocean view is important it would be good to ask for it. Our condo had a great view of the gol...

We hated to leave! This condo is one of the best we have ever stayed in. We'll equipped, very clean and spacious. Great location, close to shopping centre and restaurants. Complex built in the '80's however this unit is nicely updated. Lanai is beautiful with a great view of Keauhou Bay. On the last morning we even saw Dolphins in the bay. Pools were very nice, grounds we'll kept. We would recommend this unit to anyone.
