This was a perfect place for us to stay while visiting the Big Island. Beautiful lanai with amazing sunsets, the complex has a great pool and bbq area, is centrally located, and the condo is well stocked with thoughtful beach toys and equipment. The AC is so nice to have. The kitchen had all the tools you could want. Great info from the owners and convenient check in and out. Would definitely stay again.
Good location close to the main attractions in Kona but far enough away to be quiet. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Parking is easy and the sunset views from the lanai are great.
Condo was as described, pictures true. Portable air was good! Nothing like central air, but did cool to be comfortable. Way better than none! Loved the view. Master bath a tad small but doable. Loved all the amenities like washer and dryer, hair dryer, coffee pot & salt and pepper. Pool was very nice! Sliding door a little hard to open for me and grandson. Ice maker broken when we were there, might ask so you know whether to pick up ice. They have 2 plastic trays of ice ready though! Would definitely stay again! The sunset was great!!
We stayed in the Oceanfront Sea Village condo # 1207 for four weeks and had a great time. It was our 15th stay in Hawaii, and that was one of the best accommodations we had.
First, I'd like to claim that we DID see gorgeous sunsets from our lanai! (I'm responding to some of the reviews). We also used the lanai as our oceanfront dining room and a bar all the time.
The place is lovely. It's spotless and very well organized.
All the rooms have AC, and they do the work. We didn't have to use it in the master bedroom at all. Instead, we kept the windows open and ran the fan. It was enough to have the bedroom cool at night.
Both bedrooms have privacy, and the beds are very comfortable.
The kitchen has everything you need. We cooked on most days, and it was easy to navigate.
The Sea Village complex is charming and well-maintained. The location is excellent. We walked to Kona when we wanted (15-20 minutes) and had morning hikes along Alii Drive every day.
The host was very easy to contact, and you feel he cares about the guests. We got all the necessary information, without excessive rules and regulations, on time.
I recommend the place to anyone. When we return to the Big Island, we will stay in this condo.
Property was as expected. The beds were nice. Lots of great beach gear (6 chairs, 3 umbrellas, 4 boogie boards, etc). The AC worked well enough, but is very loud. View from the lanai was fabulous. Pool and hot tub were both in great condition. The unit has a full size washer and drier which came in handy in the middle of our 2 week long trip.
John had great communication and provided us with a really good information packet about things to do around the island.
Only issue we had was with the hot water, sometimes we'd shower and have tons of hot water, other times it would never get fully hot. I assume it's a shared supply with other apartments and if too many people were using it at the same time there wasn't enough. Luckily it was never cold.
I would happily stay here again.
Gorgeous views of Dolphins, sunset and cruise ships! The room was very well equipped. Powerful ACs. Beyond basics, packed with beach gears and the big island guidebooks and owners and previous guests recommendations. All very helpful! Will definitely rent this unit again. Thank you!
Very easy rental, lots of information provided by the host but (thankfully) not presented in an overwhelming manner (short checklist of what to do upon arrival and departure -- lockbox, etc.).
Kitchen had ample dishes, cutlery, and cookware, and the beach equipment was all in great shape (chairs, umbrellas, boards, etc.)..
We didn't need much but Jon was very prompt to respond to a text at departure time.
View from the lanai is indeed incredible, pool/whirlpool/BBQ grounds are well kept, and there is ample parking.
Will gladly return!
Beautiful ocean front with well stocked kitchen, nice decor, comfortable beds and very good fans and air conditioning.
This was the perfect location, midway between everything. The condo was clean and bright and had everything we wanted.
Great location, excellent owner communication, amazing condo with spectacular view. I loved that the lanai is on the corner so you have a large open view of both ocean and mountain. The condo was comfortable, AC worked great, wifi too. We cooked most nights and enjoyed the BBQs downstairs. No direct access to ocean without major boulder scramble for many yards, so we didn't go in the water there. Everything was supplied, including bathroom tissues, lots of towels for home and beach, and kitchen and cooking supplies. Jon was so helpful and quick to reply. We had a broken latch on the lanai door and Jon had repair people out same day to replace it. Plenty of storage. I would DEFINITELY stay here again. Our best Hawaii rental ever, more updated than most options here. Spacious enough to have easily accommodated another couple too.
Plenty of parking off street, nicely maintained grounds. Many used the pool area but the sounds never intruded on our place. I especially appreciated the lanai and many windows having screens so we could leave them open and hear the ocean waves roll in while indoors. Great stay.
Loved the views from this condo. Nice upgraded unit with lots of beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. The owner s were quick to respond to a couple of minor requests.
My family of 4 was very happy with this property at Sea Village. Nice pool and BBQ area and the suite was extremely clean, comfortable, and well organized! We would stay here again. Jon was very easy to connect with and was very helpful.
If I could give Jon mor stars I would
The condominium itself was wonderful. The grounds were immaculate. The pool And grilling area were great. The lanai was perfect! And to top it all off, the owners were attentive and kind.
What a beautiful property and central location to Kona and the Big Island. The owners completely set up their unit with everything to make your stay relaxing and accommodating, everything was well organized, clean and available for your use, a real gem and gorgeous view of the bay.
Jon was very responsive to my questions and requests. Was a pleasure renting from them and couldn’t recommend them and their unit more. Mahalo Jon and Suzanne!
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kona and stay at Sea Village. This was our second time staying at this complex. We enjoyed sitting on the Lanai after a round of golf and the unit had everything we needed!
Jon was extremely helpful and responsive to all our questions. The condo was very well appointed and we had zero complaints. The only issue, small that it was, was our booking so close to the Iron Man Triathlon. It does take over the town. Otherwise, Jon laid out copious amounts of helpful information from everything ranging from restaurants to beaches to excursions. An awesome in house guide book. We'd book again in a heart beat.
We had such a great stay! Jon and Suzanne were so accommodating and responsive. We missed our first flight out so we ended up coming MUCH later in the day than anticipated but I was able to easily coordinate things with them to make it all work out. The place has a beautiful view and a very fun pool and a great location! Thanks so much for working with us to help accommodate our two small kids to make it an awesome vacation!
The condo couldn’t have been more perfect. It has beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers for the beach, pool floats and towels. We added a XL snorkeling set to the collection, but there was lots of other sizes for the rest of the family to borrow. Staying on site was a blast because we had the pool, large grass bbq area, and even just sitting inside feels like a dream with a massive ocean scene. We saw dolphins 3x, a pool of jelly fish, and epic sunsets all from the lanai. The poolside sunsets are amazing. Hope to return someday!
This condo was perfect for two of us staying in Kona for 6 days. The condo was clean and fully stocked with a beautiful view and a great location. Parking was easy and check in was a breeze. Our hosts were very accommodating, particularly at check out when our flight was delayed by several hours. There were chairs, umbrellas, towels, and even a cooler for our use. Everything we could possibly need was in the condo. Thanks so much for making our trip wonderful!
Perfect location, perfect price, and prefect space for my son and I to spend our vacation! Loved all of the amenities and the ease of staying here! Thank you for a wonderful time!
This has been one of our favorite properties. Our family of 5 stayed here for 4 days. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed, including some spices. I loved having the washer and dryer available, including a laundry basket!
The view is beautiful, and the complex is clean and well kept. I would stay here again without any hesitation! Jon responded quickly to any questions, and included a comprehensive list of things to do and see on the Big Island.
The unit was perfect for us. It was delightful to be on the lanai and watch the daily surfers and at sunset time the view was spectacular. The unit is very well-maintained and we had no issues.
This condo was amazing, to wake up and see the ocean right outside, and sunsets every night was so relaxing. The condo was spotless, and the resort as a whole was very well kept and maintained also. Overall we would come back and stay here again. We spent a week in Volcano, and we were not sure about our time on this side of the island, but we loved it! Great place, thanks!
Exceptionally clean and well equipped. Owners VERY easy to communicate with and both terms and pricing very reasonable. Beautiful ocean view and walking distance (1 mile or so) to local shopping. A lovely property!
The communication was fabulous and the condo was exactly as depicted! The location was fabulous for the water excursions we planned. We wish we had more time to spend on this side of the island as there’s so much to do. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Super location. Had everything one would want. Great pool, and barbecue area. Would stay again
What can be better than waking up to the ocean crashing under the lanai every morning? Super clean condo, excellent communication with owner. Prime location. We’ll definitely be back!
We had a fantastic view from the lanai. Spent a lot of time there watching boats, birds, etc. The owners were very helpful with information about all aspects of the condo and of the Kona area. This would be at the top of our list if we ever head back to Hawaii.

We have stayed at Vacation International "The Sea Village Resort" in Kona, several lengthy times in 3 of the buildings. This was my first time in building 1, condo 207 for the month of Feb. 2022. This is a privately owned condo by very attentive owners to the client, regulations of Sea Village and comfort of your stay. The condo has been remodeled with great style and with a majority of very useful changes for the client.. Usually you have to run to the store for food obviously but the owners have kindly stocked bath soap, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, and fun beach toys for kids and adults. The Lanai was one of my favorite spots as it never had hot sun directly on it. It never got blasing hot and was so comfort to sit and relax on early am to pm. You can still get lots of sun from the water reflection. You have an inlet right off the Lanai that surfers use freq. You have a great view of Kona's night lights. Watch and the whales will blow and dozens of dolphins with jump and flip by your view.. Watch huge curise ships park and ferry passengers to the Kona dock. and see Hang gliders being pulled by boats., You can easily see swimmers swim 1.2 miles and return the same. Visiting at the condos in the evening is at 5:30 - 7:30pm or longer at one set of long tables with others from Canada and across the US. BBQ's are hot and ready for everyone to take turns and cleaned every day. I could not see the sunsets from our Lanai so we came down to the pool area to visit and watch and try to get that elusive green flash of the sunset. Also, many fishing or sailboats plan a trip across the waters at that time. - get that boat in your picture too. The owners are so quick to answer your questions or concerns by email, text or phone call. Parking is on the property, close and easy to use. WiFI is fast and the TV choices are great. Walk to town and back for breakfast!! Besure book a trip to snorkel and watch the manta rays at night- it's easy and fun - relax - it's not scary. I'd love to plan another trip and stay in this condo. !!
This property was perfect. Great location, view, we’ll equipped. Everything we needed for a great stay
Wry happy. Great view. Great location. Awesome view from the pool! 5 Stars
This was an amazing spot for our family. We were busy during the days, but our mornings and evenings were very comfortable sitting on the lanai and taking in the beautiful view.
The only thing I would keep in mind is that the pool has a sign for no games for kids. I think it’s common in most condos on the island but since we were traveling during the school year my kids were some of the few. It’s tricky asking kids to play quietly in a pool, but most of our time was at the beach or we did early swim when less people were out. Aside from that we will absolutely consider this location again in the future. I’m already recommending this host to my parents and sister for the next time they go take a trip to Kona. Until next time! Mahalo
Wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable, location is ideal, clean, everything a family needs is available in the unit or on the premises. A winning place to stay. Owner is responsive and friendly.
Let's start with the pros:
- Excellent communication with property owner
- Convenient location, you can walk into town in 12-15 minutes tops, plus the views along the way are worth it plus so close to shopping area that has all kinds of cafés restaurants and shops as well as three ABC stores.
- There are plenty of towels, beach towels, everything you could need for the beach including chairs and snorkel of it is the best stocked condo I’ve ever been in.
- There was plenty of parking although it is snug, but it works.
- The landscaping of the property is beautiful and kept up very well.
- Green flash coffee is in the parking lot.
- From the common area you can see some amazing sunsets.
- The pool is nice as is the hot tub.
- The common area is amazing. We didn't use it much but plenty of others did. It has grills and picnic tables that were kept very clean.
- The beds were comfy and there are plenty of blankets and sheets and pillows for extras on the sofa.
- The price was so reasonable that even with the few cons I listed below, we would definitely stay here again.
- And I know I already mentioned it, but the owner is amazing. The communication was top-notch!
A few cons:
- There is no central air conditioning so it relies on window vented air conditioners which actually did the trick for a while, until it didn't. It was so humid as Kona was under some anomaly of wet wet weather. Since the condo faces north, you don't truly get any type of breezes from the ocean.
- Be prepared for I smell as the property is older and as we all know if you’ve traveled to islands or anywhere coastal before, the salt water permeates everything and the damp can leave a musty smell. We actually were okay with this because it reminded us of one our aunt's beach cottage from 20 years ago.
- The water pressure is just OK. In the master bathroom sink it hardly comes out at all but the rest of the house seems to be all right, just not a lot of pressure.
The view is worth it all.
We stayed here with three adults as my son is a teenager and needs his own space, I’m not sure how you would do it with six people unless four of them were kids as it would be very very tight but if it was siblings or something like that you could definitely make that happen.
Our family of 4 enjoyed Jon's clean and well equipped condo during our 9-night stay. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook all our meals. The washer and dryer were a lifesaver. We especially enjoyed using the outdoor grills and well maintained courtyard. Jon has done a great job making sure the condo has all you need to enjoy your island stay.
The property was exactly as advertised. The view was amazing. Jon had excellent communication. The condo included everything needed for the beach. We would definitely stay again.
The condo & location are exactly as stated in the description. The owner provided check-in information that was very detailed, so you know exactly what to expect. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
It was perfect for us! beautiful lanai that overlooks the ocean, quiet property with a beautiful garden / pool area, fully stocked unit for cooking, and beach going. We also loved that it was less than 1 mile into town - so Very walkable!
Location was perfect-right on water, wouldn't stay anywhere else in Kona area. Communication with Jon was 5 stars. Would definitely stay here again. Place was perfect for me and my wife
The property was as stated with updated kitchen, baths and bedrooms. Enjoyed listening to the ocean waves in what appears to be your own private view from the lanai. AC helped especially for sleeping. Great beach supplies too!
This was an absolutely perfect place for us! There were three adults and we had one teenager with us. The condo was spotless and had everything we needed- from the kitchen to beach gear. We really appreciated the extra snorkeling gear as some that we had brought with us didn't work as well. The kitchen was well stocked and Jon was so prompt and pleasant when we reached out. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We hope to be back and will definitely tell our friends about your place!
Clean, well equipped and maintained. Enjoyed sunsets from our lanai. Pool area also has a great view for sunset. Town is close but with the heat, humidity, traffic, lack of sidewalks, drive or use the Kona Trolley. Be prepared to carry your luggage up as the complex does not have an elevator.
Drive around the island. Appreciate the beauty and all Hawai’i island has to offer.
Our stay was enjoyable! No better place to refresh and recharge. We will return. 🤙🏽
The property is very ideally located, the views were amazing, we enjoyed the sunsets every evening. The house was very clean, kitchen well stocked, air conditioners kept the house cold and bedrooms and bathrooms had all amenities. Well furnished home facing the beach!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and look forward to planning longer stays in the future.
Great ocean view, good air conditioning.
Great condo! We really enjoyed our stay. I love the complex and it's very well maintained. It was hotter than I'm used to in Hawaii (we almost never come in summer) and this is one of the only units in the complex with A/C.
We rent VRBOs fairly often and this condo was very clean and well appointed. While drinking coffee and relaxing on the lanai, we were able to see dolphins, a turtle, sunsets, etc. I highly recommend this condo.
This place is in a great location right next to the water and the view from the balcony is great. Relax watching subsets and dolphins play. Pool was nice and being next to the ocean was very relaxing. The place was clean and well equipped with everything you need. Easy communication with host as well.
The condo was great. The view was fantastic and the condo was stocked very well for the beach. The AC units were very nice to have. We would definitely stay here again.
Central location. Great view. Great pool. Well equipped.
Great condo in a great location that suited are family. We loved the fact that the owner Jon was super communicative and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. Will definitely recommend this place and will stay here again.
