Had a great stay. The ocean is just off the lanai, with amazing views (especially at sunset). We saw dolphins pass by several mornings and loved listening to the waves. One of the complex’s pools is also just steps away.
We absolutely loved Kanaola! The condo was ample, and our host provided everything we could possibly need and more. We loved watching sunsets from the pool, snorkeling nearby, swimming with Manta Rays, and fishing off the volcanic rocks. My son even managed to land both a grouper and a bluefin trevally! Lovely space to rest and relax. We did struggle a bit initially with the lack of air conditioning, but were able to adjust as we became more accustomed to the heat. We will 100% stay here again... and again and again!
We are a family of four with two tween girls. The property was perfect for us: spacious, clean and modern. Two ample bedrooms, a good-size, well-appointed en-suite master with a big second bathroom. Kitchen had plenty of necessaries for cooking and storage. Comfortable dining and living area. We loved the outdoor balcony where we had breakfast watching the waves crashing on the shore about 100 feet away! The complex has three pools, tennis courts etc and is conveniently situated for local beeches, restaurants etc.
The apartment comes with a stock of books, games, and beach accessories. Janice is a pleasure to deal with, replies promptly to any questions and clearly put thought into ensuring our stay would be a delightful one.
Enjoyed our stay very much, beautiful location on the coastline, well equipped. The staff of the Kimberley managing company were great. Even specially brought us coffee to brew. Only one issue to clarify - the sofa does not open up to a bed. The staff of the resort was not very helpful, but we relied on the managing company who were great (Abby +).
This property is amazing! A beautiful 180 degree view of the ocean with waves crashing right below you. We loved mornings on the lanai and listening to the waves all night long. Beautiful sunsets!
The unit had everything we needed including snorkels, masks, fins, beach chairs and mats and a cooler. Kitchen was extremely well stocked and had all we needed, including spices, etc.
A/C worked great and was a welcome reprieve from the heat/humidity. One of the pools is close to the unit and the overall property was quiet and well-maintained.
We have stayed in numerous VRBO's over the years and we agreed this unit is our favorite! Thanks for sharing it, we can't wait to return.
Could not have picked a better place to call home for a week . Lots to do , see and walk to .
The condo was very nice. We loved the area and enjoyed our stay. Not having air conditioning was not horrible but would have nice. I would stay there again. Hotels are not worth the money, but this condo was.
The pictures don’t show the views as good as they are in person. Beautiful! The access to get to the bay was easy once we figured it out. Some minor issues with sinks not being clean but an easy oversight and not a big deal. Overall the place is amazing and we enjoyed our time there.
Condo was perfect for what we needed. Clean, good beds, nice showers, great location and an amazing view. Best bang for your buck in Hawaii.
The condo was very clean and cozy. The private Lanai was beautiful overlooking a cove to the ocean.
Best VRBO rental we’ve ever stayed at! The pictures in the listing don’t do the view justice at all. Full oceanfront view with double-wide bi-fold doors. Great working AC. Clean and bug-free, which is tough to find on the islands. Amenities were great, too. Good working condition beach chairs and umbrella, baby floaty, cooler, large TV’s. The open walk-in showers were great too- super easy with all the washing up you do after beach or pool time. The access to the ocean-front pool was fantastic, too. Best pool on property is just steps from the unit’s front door. We’d happily stay at this property again.
This one bedroom two bath condo was very well equipped and in pristine condition. The view from I was of the ocean, straight over part of the golf course. The owner has provided everything you need, including a well equipped kitchen and beach chairs, mass, boogie boards, etc. I would definitely stay here again.
They can do better , toilette brush should be replaced . Missed the complimentary water which was as supposed to be in the fridge, the property manager told us multiple times they had sent over the water but it never arrived. Had issues with the AC but managed to get it working after while. The manager was helpful thru the phone which was appreciated. Overall we had a good stay but some issues should be addressed and they are easy to fix. Especially for the price we expected everything to be perfect.
Great amenities-pool, walking path, tennis, ping pong and the location is central to all these things as well as a grocery store right up the road.
Just FYI, owner keeps the air off before arrival and we arrived late in the day so ladies, it was hot for sleeping IYKYK. Plan ahead. Haha.
Jenni was fantastic! The location is perfect.
This was our third time to the Big Island and we wanted a place with air conditioning. Very nice condo with well stocked kitchen. The only complaint about the kitchen was the lack of a functioning ice maker. The master bedroom had a very comfortable bed and the bathrooms were very nice. Only downside is maybe a hand held shower head in the master bath since the water pressure in the shower wasn't great. The provided beach towels were a plus, but if there were more than two people, more towels would be needed. When we come back to the Big Island next time, this place will definitely be on our short list of places to stay. Highly recommend!
The condo was open, spacious, clean, and well-appointed within a quiet complex of tropical beauty. The ocean-front campus with three pools was within minutes of Kona, water adventure shops, restaurants, and shopping. This condo is IDEAL in every way!
What a great space to enjoy with my spouse. The condo had everything we needed for a great stay. The kitchen was well appointed. We had lots of beach toys and pool toys. One of the best parts was the mango tree right outside the condo, who knew we’d be able to pick fresh fruit? It was amazing.
We came to Kona to relax for a week and did just that. The most amazing views - hardly left the patio. Comfortable beds and nicely stocked. Would definitely stay here again. We loved it!
Great place to stay with family.
My family and I had the pleasure of staying on this beautiful property in Kona, Hawaii. Upon our arrival we were greeted with beautiful panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. From every room in the house, you had a water view and sitting on the balcony and watching the sun set over the ocean in the evenings was breathtaking.
The property has great amenities that we took advantage of such as swimming in the pool, enjoying the hot tub, and cooking on the outside grills. The house itself was spacious and well maintained.
Our stay here in Kona was an experience that my family and I will always remember. If you seek a location that combines natural beauty, comfort, and many activities in the area, then you have found it! I cannot recommend it highly enough!
Janice and Bruce’s condo is amazing. It has breathtaking oceanfront views (best location in the complex) and you get to be lulled to sleep by the waves. The condo was spotless when we arrived and I cannot overstate how thoughtfully and throughly well-equipped the condo is for visitors. The only thing we needed to get for our family was a few groceries. We were so sad to leave the best rental ever and we can’t wait to hopefully stay in this condo again.
This property is in a great location. Relatively close to everything you want to do. One thing nobody has said about the property is from the ocean view pool you can see the location of the Manta Ray snorkeling location, which by the way is super amazing and you should do. It is a 17 minute walk away or a 9 min drive. My only negative is there are not enough spoons to cook with, but that did not effect my overall experience. I would definitely rent again.
We have stayed 3 times at Kanaloa and this is by far the nicest we have stayed in. It has a fully equipped kitchen, marvellous views, comfortable beds and everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The welcome basket was greatly appreciated.
The owner was in touch with us to make sure there were no problems. Would definitely recommend this condo.
This is such an awesome place to stay. We stayed there for 3 weeks and it was fabulous. The room itself was great and very comfortable. The view is a million dollar view. Every morning. We were able to sit outside and have breakfast with a great view of the ocean. Also we were able to sit by the ocean and watch the sunset every night. Karen is such a great hostess. Renting was a breeze and everything was perfect. We will definitely be back. We have been to the big island many times and this was by far the best condo we have ever stayed in. ❤️
This condo was very comfortable and had amazing views from every room. I would definitely stay again.
Clean and very nice property
Beautiful condo. Wonderful view from Lani. Had everything we needed and more. Would love to come back with my family.
The condo is very clean, spacious, comfortable and has a glorious view from the lanai. The kitchen is well stocked if you want to eat in. The washer and dryer in the unit are very handy if you are staying longer and need to do some laundry during your stay. We enjoyed the lanai a lot -- sound of waves crashing on the rocks and beautiful sunset every day!
The property is very conveniently situated. There's a shopping center very close by where there's a grocery store, drug store, multiple restaurants, etc. Magic Sands Beach is not too far away, Manini Beach and Captain Cook's Monument are also not too far away. Captain Cook's Monument is a great location to kayak and snorkel. Kahalu'u Bay is a great spot to surf, also not too far from the condo.
One thing to note -- the unit is on the 2nd level. There is a flight of stairs from the ground floor main entrance to the unit. This may be an issue for guests with mobility issues.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay. Karen was kind enough to offer late checkout as we had a very late flight. Thank you, Karen!
This place is amazing! Great for families. The two bedrooms are next to each other which I preferred having a young child with us in the other room. Spacious! Well stocked. Clean. The lanai and view are amazing and relaxing. Pools and community were nice too. Only negatives would say the security is strict with the pool areas asking kids to keep voices down, even when its not "quiet hours" and you are on the first floor and might have some heavy feet above you (we did for only half the stay but was tolerable). Loved the unit will 100% come back and next time stay longer.
We loved this condo! The location was nice and quiet. Away from busy tourist resorts. Grocery located very close. Views were amazing. Everything we needed was provided. Would definitely stay here again. Don’t miss the sunsets from the ocean pool! And the A/C was much appreciated
Best view best owners
Great except upstairs noise thru floor
This was a very nice property. Very spacious, gorgeous view.
We stayed there for seven nights and absolutely loved the location of the property as well as the unit. Each morning we would sit on the lanai and read or eat breakfast. The view was so great it was almost hard to get going in the morning. If we go back to the Big Island we will try to get this property again.
We really enjoyed staying at this place, very spacious and tastefully decorated, well-equipped with everything you'd need. Clean, quiet, great view, and great location from which to access all Kona adventures. Upon arrival, had a bit of trouble with the AC and wifi - but the owner was super-responsive and helpful, and we got it all sorted out and working in a short time. We appreciated her. The ocean front pool was not available as advertised, but through no fault of the owner; plus, two other nice pools in this elegant condo complex. This place is a Yes.
My friend and I really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood of this property. The unit is large. There were only 2 of us but I could see it still being spacious with a few more people. We thought the beds were comfortable and enjoyed the a/c. The view from the living room lanai was beautiful. We enjoyed having dinner out there every night. I had very good communication with Steve (the owner). There is an easy walk to the marina, which is picturesque, from the property. We used the Quiet/Adult pool a few times when we didn't want to go to the beach.
Everything seemed well maintained. Property is also a 5 minute drive to a grocery store and pizza place. We used both. The property is gated which is nice. Would definitely stay here again.
Everything was perfect. Place had everything we needed and then some extras. The view from the lanai off the living area was amazing. The resort was very quiet and peaceful. Already talking about returning next year.
Beautiful sunsets. We’ll equipped. Comfortable. Great communications. Beautiful sunsets. Thanks!
Condo is well equipped. The owner is friendly and responsive. The views from the condo are amazing, and we loved falling asleep to and waking up to the sound of the waves crashing. Great location.
We loved our stay at Kanaloa at Kona! The condo was fabulous - very comfortable & well equipped. And the grounds were beautifully maintained and gorgeous! One of the best VRBO rentals we’ve ever had!
Not only did we get to have the ocean view, we also got to see the sunset every night and what a display of colors, so beautiful
We had such a great time at this beautiful home. The location is as close to the ocean as you can get. It was so nice to fall asleep to the sounds of the waves. This condo is equipped with everything you will need for your stay. You can cook meals or head out to nearby restaurants. It is around the corner from the best snorkeling beach on the island. You can kayak, SUP, and even surf nearby. Thank you for another perfect vacation!
We loved how comfortable this condo was for family of 2 kids, and 4 adults. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the beautiful lanai and the fully stocked kitchen for meals at home. We couldn’t figure out how to get the ceiling fan on the lanai to work, but other than that, we loved this vacation.
This property is clean, beautiful, and in a great location. We will definitely come back!
Great place to stay. Gorgeous sunset views. In a quiet part of town and a short distance to groceries, restaurants, shopping, beaches etc. will stay again if I’m ever back on the big island!
Roomy, comfortable condo. This is a downstairs unit. Consider checking fridge & cupboard before a big shop to see what's there (cooking oil, soy sauce, etc). Nicely appointed kitchen. Comfy beds. Short drive to main shops & places to eat along Ali'i, with a few even closer.
Nice property in a quiet location, the property had everything we needed for our stay. I would stay here again
As close to a perfect stay on the island as you can get! Best view from the lanai in the whole complex, comfy beds, and super responsive and friendly personal management. Everything worked and the place was well stocked with everything you could need. Would love to stay here again in the future!
This condo had the best location in the Kanaloa complex. Very quiet and private. It was perfect for 2 adult couples. The owner was great and resolved a minor issue immediately. Our party would love to return someday!
Lovely condo with amazing views and excellent location!
Had a great stay at Kanaloa 701, property was nice and clean! Family enjoyed drinking coffee on the Lanai every morning! Location was great! Will be back again!
Very clean , organized and meet all expectations. It was well equipped and had everything we needed to make our Hawaii vacation perfect.
My family and I were here for my sons wedding. We arrived late to the place after a long day of travel and security was so sweet and kind for helping us find our condo to get some sleep. And let us finish checking in the next morning. Kona is a beautiful place. And our stay here made it, the place was clean plenty of room for a family great place for kids there’s plenty to do even on the grounds here pools tennis ping pong beautiful walking distance beaches. Groceries and restaurants not even a ten minute walk. Huge Balcony and view of the golf course never gets old. Everything was included to have a wonderful stay. Very peaceful here. Friendly people all around. Would definitely stay here again!
Spent 10 days here with the family and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our unit was ready before check-in so the property manager let us check-in a few hours early which was nice. The unit was spacious and has a great view of the ocean (either with the lanai doors open or closed). Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook. Rice maker and bean grinder were a plus. Brand new full size washer and dryer came in handy for washing beach towels and not having to pack as much clothes. There were no steak knives but a call to the PM resolved that and they brought them over that day. The Ocean pool next to the unit was closed for renovation which wasn't a problem as there are two other pools close by. In fact it made for quiet morning and evenings on the lanai with no one at the pool. The barbecue by the Ocean pool is in pretty bad shape and needs to be fixed (hard to light and one burner barely stays on). There are beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. for the beach. Check-in and check-out process were seamless. We will definitely be coming back here again.
Absolutely loved the location, property grounds and facilities, and the condo itself - incredible view on the lanai. It was immaculately clean, everything worked just fine, and was fully supplied with necessities. You can tell the owners take great pride in keeping their unit in excellent condition which was greatly appreciated and obvious. The only thing one might consider is that this is a lower level unit and there are people above you which can get a little noisy at times. This is not a criticism of the owners by any means (since they have no control over this) but only something to keep in mind if you are a light sleeper - no worse than being in a hotel room with people above.
Can't say enough positive things about the unit and look forward to returning in the future. Thanks so much for your hospitality and always staying in touch before arrival to make sure things went smoothly (which they did).
This is the perfect location as the view is stunning. There is nothing that you could want for as Gayle & Richard have thought of everything.
Thank you for making our Hawaiian vacation so memorable.
Wendy & Jack
I let the owner know a year ahead of time that I was shortening my reservation by two weeks.Instead of 7 weeks we would be staying 5 weeks. He wrote back and said that it was too hard to get VRBO to change the reservation and that he would fix it before the final payment was due in Dec. I wrote him Dec 1 and reminded him of this and got nothing back. So VRBO was going to charge me for the whole 7 weeks. After arguing with VRBO and the owner they both said all I could do was cancel my reservation completely. This was 3 weeks before we were coming to Hawaii-----if the owner didn't want to rent to us for the same price there is nothing with VRBO that says he has to so we would be out of a place to stay. Because there wasn't any other places to rent at that late date I just had to leave it and basically was out $2700. A complete rip off!!!!
The unit itself is old like much of Kanaloa is. The shower downstairs was just hanging there and not attached at the bottom. The AC worked ok in the LR but was not real cold in the bedrooms. The kitchen was ok but very dark.The view was nice but the deck furniture uncomfortable. There is also many stairs just to get to the front door and many more to get to the upper bedroom. Not fun with luggage and groceries. I would not stay here again.
Roaches on the floor, big B52’s and the little ones. The check in process sucks, it’s a hassle and it costs 30 to register? Plus it’s closed in the afternoon. Biggest bummer was that the oceanfront pool was closed and that was one of the deciding factors in booking this place. A little more transparency would have gone far.
Great Location ! Attention to details ! Well stocked Kitchen ! Byt the best part - Expansive balcony with amazing views and ambiance
The Kanaloa condos' location is great, and the actual condo is steps from the gated entrance. The unit has a full ocean view, but it's set back a little so side buildings limit the view somewhat. Check in was easy, the condo was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was exceptionally well-stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc.
We found 4 camping chairs, but only 1 Tommy Bahama-style low beach chair and 1 other low-to-the-ground uncomfortable beach chair. We didn't use the boogie boards, but they appeared to be fairly new. Be sure to note the policy of providing only 1 bath towel per guest. Also, note the description that mentions there are stairs (and the chair lift wasn't . It was great to have a washer/dryer in the unit, but the dryer takes forever to dry anything.
Overall, it's a good property, but could use some updating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay! The location is fairly centralized for enjoyong a host of activities. Many dining and shopping options are minutes away. Snorkel and night Manta Ray tours are less than a mile away. Overall, you can't go wrong staying at this priperty!
We have stayed at Kanaloa multiple times and find it to be one of the best vacation condos in Kona. Kanaloa is in a great location on the waterfront within walking distance of snorkel beaches, shops and restaurants. The units are roomy, clean, quiet and nicely furnished. Most of the units have central air conditioning which is a must in the summer months.
This home was the perfect place for our family of adults to have an amazing time on the Big Island. We were mesmerized by the ocean waves sitting on the lanai celebrating the sunset every day. Slept soundly each night with AC and comfy beds. The condo had what we needed to make meals, fun at the beach with towels and chairs, and perfect distance from so many places to enjoy. Loved that we could wash clothes, and didn’t have to buy those common household items. The condo complex was quite, easy in and out, and convenient parking place. We hope to return again soon And will stay here again. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.
Had a nice, smooth, and comfortable stay in Kona. The unit was just right for our family. The grounds are well maintained and the Lanai is very nice in the morning.
Enjoyed the beach with some of the beach gear available to us.
The directions and guide sent in email are worth reviewing to find out good "local" spots.
The condo was very spacious. The views from the condo were amazing. The condo was well stocked with anything you could need for a great vacation.
Great location and perfect for 6 adults.
Perfect! Bed and bath for everyone. This condo was very comfortable. Bay View was so beautiful! Everything was well appointed and air conditioning and fan’s worked perfectly. Mahalo
We liked the location near the bay with its lush vegetation. Our condo was well equipped with beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels, cooking utensils and everything we needed. We liked the feel of Hawaii provided by the Retro Hawaiian prints. Would love to return.
easy checkin - parking spot here was narrow - well equipped unit
Absolutely loved the place and enjoyed a beautiful sunset every night. Property manager was very responsive even on a Sunday. Condo was comfortable, clean with modern upgrades. Would definitely come back.
This unit was perfect ! Comfortable and and everything was very nice. It felt like a nice home, not like a rental at all. Keaeuhou is a very special area and this condo was a perfect place to stay. Thank you
Location is great and check in was pretty easy. The parking is a walk to the unit but is covered. This unit is huge and very nicely furnished. I wish they had a TV is the master bedroom. Internet was good and the kitchen was nice. So much equipment to use in the kitchen. Refrig is going to be replaced and the owner is very responsive. I will be doing a detailed review with pictures online.
David B R.
We have stayed in this complex twice. The location is fantastic. It is right on the ocean and has ocean views in two directions.
The unit is comfortable and well equipped.
We would return again.
This place was wonderful. My kids loved going to one of the 3 pools in the neighborhood. There was plenty of snorkeling gear for all of us. The location was perfect, just a short drive from down town Kona. There’s a fairly large shopping center just a mile or so from the condo that has anything you could need as well. Kitchen is well stocked, plenty of beach towels and very comfy rooms.
We have enjoyed this spacious condo many times over the last dozen years or so and it continues to impress. The location and views from every room cannot be beat. The rooms are very large and well appointed with many upgrades. The kitchen has everything you need to make delicious meals after shopping at the nearby farmers markets and local KTA store. We have never required the A/C and enjoy opening the windows and sliding doors to let in the cooling breeze and soothing sounds of ocean waves crashing on the very close lave rocks. Sit on the lanai in the mornings to watch for spinner dolphins, divers, kayakers, outrigger canoers, fishing boats and more. The Kanaloa grounds around the condo are very well maintained and the area is very quiet and safe. Kanaloa has easy access to close by white sand beaches, restaurants, shops and roads leading to anywhere on the island. It is a perfect home-base for exploring the Big Island. Highly recommended!
The property was amazing, it had all we needed and more. Our check in process was stressful but I believe the owner now has the correct updated information listed, please check to you have the check in information prior to landing :)
Overall we would definitely come back to this property.
Stay was okay
Had a very nice stay in this condo. Enjoyed sitting out on the lanai watch the waves crash in the little bay. The resort area is clean and well kept. Pools are not too busy and it is easy to get out to town in a few minutes. A good spot that close enough to everything and yet private.
Great view! Wonderful time enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean.
The condo is getting worn but the layout is perfect. No complaints.. stains in carpet but carpet was clean.
Fantastic stay, great location, perfect for families
This condo fit our family of 5 perfectly. It was well stocked with everything we needed. The grounds are beautiful, the lanai faces the golf course with a mountain backdrop. Grocery store is close and convenient. Will definitely stay here again!
Condo was clean, beautifully decorated. Had anything and everything you would need. Great view
My family had a great week at Turtle House. Plenty of space, well stocked kitchen, great location, and the most comfortable beds I’ve slept in on vacation! The pools and hot tubs were close by and one had a great view. Loved having coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the bay. We would definitely stay here again!
This place is even nicer in person than it looks in the photos. The entire property is well-kept and peaceful. This particular unit was very nicely built with quality materials, furnished beautifully, and equipped with everything you'd need. We were surprised at just how big the entire unit was. Plenty of space for our family to relax and enjoy our stay. Can't recommend this place enough!
Loved, loved, loved the front row seat to the evening sunsets. Sitting on the lanai just feet away from the ocean and listening to the waves was our favorite part of our stay. This was our first stay in a condo and I think we have been spoiled!
You’re very excited to stay at this location. Location is beautiful and inside is actually pretty amazing. We did run into a little check-in snafu… And Ingrid was amazing at helping us get things sorted out. She is a true rockstar! At the same time there were cockroaches in the refrigerator and some bugs throughout the house the entire time we were there, we dealt with someone else tomorrow because Ingrid was unavailable and that person wasn’t as helpful and kept blaming things on the rain as for the reason of all the bugs. We were not going to make a review about it but the way she handled it was not awesome , so bring your own bug traps and have a great time.
The property is well-maintained and beautiful. The condo is large and clean. The adult pool is practically your own private space. Absolutely fantastic.
Great place to stay right on the ocean. Clean, quiet, and well kept unit and surroundings. We really enjoyed the three swimming pools and of course the view of the pacific ocean.
We loved it. They had everything you need, just pack your bag! Snorkels and boogie boards, beach umbrella, beach towels and chairs. Washer and dryer were very convenient. Every cooking appliances you would ever need. Loved the view from the ocean pool. Great sunsets. Quiet , beautiful view from the lanai. Loved eating breakfast out there.
Thanks for sharing your nice place.
This property was exactly as advertised. It was cleaned and well stocked with kitchen ware, linens, bath and beach towels. The view was amazing as well as the property amenities. The location is close enough to the main area of Kona but private and away from the constant tourist movement. We absolutely loved it and hope to return!
If you are visiting Kona this is an ideal place to stay. Host was responsive and attentive. You are not in the “downtown area” but are only a quick drive away. Facilities are well equipped, clean, and great views.
Nice and quiet for a good nights sleep.
Enjoyed the views. Loved the AC
We had an amazing stay at Kanaloa at Kona . The owners were very extremely responsive when the TV wasn't working sent someone right away to address it. Our vacation was excellent.
The only feedback I'd give is that the beach gear needs to be replaced. The single boogie board is falling apart and can't be used, the chairs were more lawn chairs than beach chairs and there was no umbrella which is a must have. We were only 2 people but seeing as up to 6 can stay, there were only 2 very old rusted beach chairs in additions to the 2 "more lawn than beach" chairs so if 6 were staying, 2 people wouldn't have chairs at all. This is different than other condos we have stayed in which were very well stocked with Tommy Bahamas chairs, boogies boards etc...It also doesn't make sense given past reviews about the gear so felt like something wasn't right.
We ended up using none of it and using gear from our friends' condo that was exceptionally well stocked (staying in a different rental unit in same complex). We left behind a floatie we bought from Costco for the pool for the next renters. It wasn't an issue for us to not have beach gear but I am not sure if something happened between rentals as other than the coolers and the sand toys, the equipment in the closet on the Lanai was not as new and functional as described by previous reviews. I am guessing something got switched somewhere.
ln the end, it was still a 5 star stay for us as the unit is comfortable and wonderfully located. The owners were super responsive and kind. The views are spectacular as is the proximity to the ocean view pool and barbeque.
We would definitely stay again but would recommend the beach equipment be updated and/or the mystery solved especially for those who don't have friends travelling with them. That or find out if your gear got moved somewhere else by accident.
Seeing and listening to the ocean could not be better.
Great relaxing week.
Beautiful views of the ocean and the golf course. The condo is well stocked and very comfortable. We loved our visit to Hawaii!
We had an amazing time at Kanaloa and the Solitude property. The owner had a great book with tips for favorite beaches, restaurants and adventures on the Big Island, and we loved all the beach gear that was provided. The beds were comfortable and the entire place was clean and well designed. We will be back!
This property is a hidden gem! Location is everything. Clean, well organized and stocked with necessities and more. We’ll be sharing with friends and family and will not hesitate to stay here again.
Loved proximity to water. Kitchen, bathrooms, laundry met needs and updated for property. Staff friendly. Would stay here again. Thank you.
