About Julie Leonard
Aloha, We have lived in Ventura, California for 30 years, working and raising our family. We have been visiting Kona our entire adult life and were excited when our daughter got married and moved there. With the birth of our twin granddaughters we rented a condo at the Kanaloa for 3 months. We immediately felt right at home and did not want to leave. From then on it was the only complex that we wanted to stay at and so began our quest to own a little piece of paradise.
Julie Leonard purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Julie Leonard chose Keauhou
We fell in love with the Kanaloa for several reasons. It is located in a quiet neighborhood where the Hawaiian spirit can be felt. As we entered the property we were awe struck by the beauty of the grounds. It felt more like a park the a condo complex. The multiple variety's of palm trees as well as two herb gardens and a mango trees helped to create a home like feeling. We would walk the quiet streets to Keauhou bay and watch the outrigger canoes come and go or head up to the Keauhou shopping center for an ice cream cone at sunset. We love visiting the open air produce market in Kailua for fresh mangos and papaya. At the Kanaloa you can live in a resort with a local feel.
What makes this Condo unique
As soon as we purchased our condo we began a complete renovation. We wanted a fresh start in our Kona home so we went all out. Granite everywhere, Hawaiian furnishings, high end appliances to match the million dollar view. We hope that you love this condo as much as we do and that you feel the Aloha spirit while you are visiting.

One of the best locations in the resort! Overlooking a small bay with good snorkeling and a beautiful ocean view. Great place to have morning coffee on the deck and watch the outriggers. The condo was nicely decorated and very comfortable. We all agreed that the beds were the most comfortable of any of our trips. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need for cooking and eye pleasing with indirect lighting. The master bedroom walk in shower has a glass tile waterfall design with a rainfall shower head. I loved it! We liked it enough to plan another trip next year at the same place. We've traveled enough to know that you don't often find something like this.
Thank you for your review and we are thrilled that you had a great time. We will look forward having you as guests again.
Fantastic First Trip to Hawaii
Hale Ohana was a wonderful choice for our family of 4! My husband and I went back & forth on doing a hotel package or going the VRBO route. I'm so glad we went the VRBO route! The lanai with its fantastic view was our favorite place for breakfast and the dinners we ate at home. The condo community grill, which was very close to the condo, worked well for our dinner cooking needs. The kitchen had plenty of dishware, utensils and cookware...items you'd have in your own home. The beds were very comfortable to sleep on and the condo itself was lovely. We enjoyed the ocean view pool many times: plenty of chairs, shade opportunity if needed and a nice pool to cool off in. The 2 beach chairs, boogie boards and plenty of beach towels were much appreciated on our trips to the various beaches on the island. The Owners refunded our deposit roughly a week after our departure. Overall is was a fantastic trip and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you do return. Thank you for mentioning the well stocked kitchen. When we rent condos in other locations it is disappointing to have to purchase salt, pepper and basic supplies just to make a simple pasta dinner. We strive to provide everything our guests will need to enjoy their vacation from the first moment of arrival. Best Regards.
Beautiful place, clean, tastefully decorated and conveniently located. Cannot beat the view! Thoroughly enjoyed :)
Thank you for the kind words, you were wonderful guests and we hope to see you again!
Idyllic Tropical Paradise in a great location
This condo sits on the ocean with a lovely view of the water. Besides the dining table on the lanai, there's a comfy chair to sit with your coffee or cocktail while reading a good book or catching up on emails. The unit was recently nicely refurbished, making it a delightful island vacation spot. The kitchen is well equipped for those, like us, who like to cook in for most meals. Beds are very comfortable. Julie is very accommodating and gets back to the guests via text in a timely manner. We kept very busy visiting the volcano, the national historic park, Hawi, the botanical gardens in Hilo, and much, much more. There is plenty of good snorkeling and hiking to keep the active tourist busy. Kanaloa at Kona is only 15 minutes from Kailua-Kona and a little less than 1/2 hour from Costco. We enjoyed our stay very much and would stay there again in a heart beat.
Beautiful Condo - Amazing view
What a beautiful condo and such an amazing view. It was peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed so much that the entire area was quiet, it was just what we were hoping for. We especially loved our time on the lania, with the sound of the crashing waves and the evening views of both the mountain and the ocean. The pools were wonderful, as were the hot tubs. We also enjoyed that there were adult only areas. We all love to cook and the kitchen was a chefs dream, with everything you could need or want. It was stunning and spotless. Julie was incredible and responded so quickly to every question we had. We will definitely be back!
Great Property and Location
The property location was perfect for our vacation needs. It is close enough to restaurants, groceries and activities to walk when we wanted to do so but away from the crowds of downtown Kona. The condo itself was spectacular. The view from the balcony is outstanding. The remodeled finishes are like new (or actually new), clean and very well appointed. Everything was as promised.
Keauhou resort area has warm, sunny weather and perfect waters for snorkeling, scuba diving, SUP and kayaking. This area is rich in history and the diligently restored heiau (temples), ancient fishponds and a wealth of historical sites are available to explore. The mornings are perfect for a walk to Keauhou Bay to watch the outriggers come and go, mid day go for a snorkel and you might see honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles) in the shallow tide pools at Kahalu'u Beach Park and at night you can watch the giant manta rays feeding in the waters off the Sheraton Kona Resort. But, to really see manta rays up close and personal, go on a manta ray night dive departing regularly from Keauhou Bay and Honokohau Harbor.
In Keauhou you’ll also find golf courses, as well as spas and fine resort restaurants in a convenient location that makes for a great home base during your adventures on the Big Island.
The Big Island is famous for coffee plantations, sports fishing, snorkeling, beautiful beaches, Volcano National Park, local art and Island cuisine. Come experience Aloha.
