Great unit super value- listen and watch the waves from the lanai and master suite. Clean, new carpets, well maintained by owners. Will be back again! Ceiling fans in all rooms keep the condo comfortable.

Aloha, It is disappointing that this experience affected your recent stay at Kanaloa. There are a number of companies that rent units for owners of Kanaloa At Kona. The cleaning fee you were charged is common for vacation rentals in Hawaii. Some companies provide a discount for shorter stays. Castle Resorts and Hotels is the onsite rental management company and... More

Our room at Kanaloa was lovely. The Lanai looked right out onto the ocean. It was very clean, the kitchen was well-stocked and the staff was friendly. If you arrive after business hours, be sure to have the phone number with you so you can let them know you are there (choose the option for Security and someone will come... More

It has a lovely entrance and for a 1 bedroom it was very spacious indeed. Loved the extra day bed, beautiful space and myself and hubby where able to have a bathroom each, wonderful. This... More

Lovely large condo with everything we needed. So much room, helpful attentive staff. Lovely ocean view. Great place to stay if going for the Hawaii Ironman. 10 km from downtown Kona. 2 km walk to a smirking beach full of turtles.

Second time here, but first since Castle Resorts and Hotels took over. Castle has improved the organization with better information, faster service if problems and the grounds are beautiful. We had 2 bedrooms, a large loft, and 2 baths. It was very clean, no bugs and well supplied with towels, sheets and kitchen utensils. Sadly no air conditioning, although I... More

Air conditioning not working when we checked in, kitchen way less than clean. Moved us to another unit and all was well. Fabulous views from the lanai. Would definatly consider this rental on future visits. Koan is spectacular. Too many activities to fit into one week...
