The 3-star rated condominium, Castle Kanaloa at Kona is located on an outcropping of lava rock overlooking beautiful Keahou Bay. The 16-acre ocean front location is beautifully landscaped with lush tropical plants and features 37 buildings of two and three floors (stairs only).
There are three swimming pools (Main, Adult Only and Oceanfront), each with a sun deck and hot tub, and five barbecues facilities available. Other property amenities include two lighted tennis courts, picnic areas, complimentary parking and complimentary WiFi access in lobby and at the main pool area, activity desk and luggage storage. For golfers, the Kona Country Club adjoins the Kanaloa at Kona and features 36 holes of championship golf. There is a Mandatory Check-out cleaning fee will be added to room cost at check-out. Optional housekeeping service during stay is by request (fee) only allowing the privacy of spacious condominium style living.
The condo is located only 7 miles south of the town of Kona and a few minutes from the Keauhou Shopping Center. One of the best places to snorkel in Hawaii is only a mile north at Kahaluu Beach Park and well worth a visit. Of course, what many people do who stay in condos is make several of their meals “at home”, saving money for perhaps some special activities or dinners in the process.
For some reason, preparing a meal while on vacation in Hawaii and watching the sun set over the ocean while eating it on your lanai, is not as much work as at home. There is a Costco, Wal-Mart and Safeway in the Kona area, as well as other smaller grocery outlets. Perfect for picking up those steaks to barbeque by the pool or items for morning breakfasts on the lanai. There is a minimum of a two day stay at the Kanaloa at Kona, but then again, why would anyone want to stay only one night and miss out on all that is offered?
