My condo is in the Kanaloa at Kona complex, unit 2302. Kanaloa is uniquely relaxing and tranquil, away from
roads, and surrounded by the Kona Country Club and Keauhou Bay. Within this complex, my unit is especially
away from it all - directly ocean front and all rooms have full ocean views. The living room, dining area, and
lanai are immersed in the sounds and closeness of the ocean.
Kanaloa is south of the airport and the town of Kailua-Kona. If you click on the detailed map to the left above,
you will find driving directions from the airport. If you click on the detailed map to the right above, you will find a
list of local attractions within roughly 10 miles north or south of the condo.
Going South from Kanaloa, you quickly reach the Kona coffee country, small towns with great cafes and unique
galleries and shops, Kealakekua Bay, the Place of Refuge Puâuhonua O Honaunau, South Point, and
Volcanoes National Park.
Going North from Kanaloa, there is the main city of Kailua-Kona with a variety of restaurants, bars, and shops.
Immediately north of Kailua-Kona are a number of commercial/industrial areas that those of us who are
residents find useful (hardware, paint, furniture, etc.)
Further north above the airport are a number of resort areas in the Kohala coast. The resorts offer fine dining,
shopping, spas, golf, and some great beaches at Hapuna and Mauna Kea. Continuing north past the resorts is
a drive I enjoy to the north end of the island and the towns of Hawi and Kapa'au. Going east from the resort
areas through Waimea you will reach the waterfalls and gardens of the rainy side of the island.
