Loved the location, pool, hot tub, amenities. Only thing we were surprised by was that there was no AC and added fees at the end. But great place to stay and we enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful condo just south of Kona's main area. Quiet with great views. Would definitely recommend.
Aloha! We just returned from our vacation and I'm so sad it came and went so quickly.
We had a great experience with this rental, easy to find, easy to get in and out of, close to downtown Kona.
We were there for the 4th of July and instead of driving to find a spot or pay for parking we were within walking distance of the parade and fireworks display downtown.
As a family what we enjoyed most was the lanai, hands down a highlight every morning for coffee, and a cocktail at sunset. Cannot beat a Kona Sunset from this lanai. We were able to see the manta's down by the rocks at night time flipping around in the water. The kitchen was fully stocked, ice maker worked great. It was a very comfortable and accommodating rental. I'd say the only thing that needs to be looked at would be the screen door out to the lanai, it needs replaced at some point, but just be gentle with it. We also worked with David in Concierge and he was great, he booked us for Surf Lessons, a Luau experience, and Ziplining. He was always available to answer questions and gave great tips and informational emails prior to our arrival. This was a great place to stay.
Really enjoyed my stay at this unit at the Sea Village. The property itself is very nice and well kept. Check in was seamless. Unit is as advertised right on the water with a nice big balcony for relaxing and enjoying your meals. My only complaint is that I’m used to staying at places where people leave what they don’t use for spices and non perishables for the next guest so your not starting out from scratch, this unit didn’t have salt and pepper or any oils or anything for cooking. I also had to buy a baking sheet for the oven to bake a few things, and there was not an oven mitt to be found , but that’s minor. The unit is very comfy, couches and beds are nice. Good linens and towels. It was spotless upon arrival. The pool area is great, nice pool, has a spa tub (I never used it so can’t comment on how it was) and there is lots of loungers. The bbq area is very nice, with 4 bbqs. Parking was never an issue without having assigned stalls, always a stall close to the building. I will definitely return in the future
My favorite part of this place was sitting outside on the balcony and drinking coffee in the morning and watching dolphins. The pool/hot tub were a major bonus as well.
It’s a bit louder than other places we have stayed (you hear everyone in the parking lot and noise in other condos from time to time). Not a deal breaker in any way but something we all noticed. The ocean is loud enough to cover anything from the balcony though!!
Communication with renting company was great! The ceiling fan broke the first night we were there and they offered to have someone come fix it right away. You know your on an island, there are tiny ants around (not a bother though) and the sliding door was salty and barely cooperated - but those were small things.
The location in town was fun - close, but not too close to all the action. The coffee shop out front was cute and delicious as well. The pool by the ocean was such a fun bonus!
I would book it again in a heartbeat. Aloha!!!
I chose this property because of easy of walking into town and the ocean view. The cleanliness was poor, very dirty floors, I mopped twice and could not get them clean. The frig leaked, the back screen came off the tracks often and over all this condo need many touch ups. We found 2 cockroaches, one was dead for sometime behind the couch. The cleaning staff need to do a much better job.
The space was comfortable, couches and beds were fine. The lanai was spacious and had a nice view during the day, although the sun goes down way to the left so sunset viewing was best at the pool area, which isn’t close. Our main complaint with this property is the functionality. They leave very few dishwashing and laundry pods but require you to do dishes and laundry on departure. I have stayed at many condos across the Hawaiian islands and I have never come across a limited supply of dishwashing and laundry detergent, which are crucial for functionality. You can’t go to the store and buy 1-2 pods, it comes in bulk. I understand only providing a starter package for the bathrooms but not the kitchen and laundry. If this is their policy, then offering renters an option to purchase small quantities would be ideal. I called and asked for more and they did bring more but I had to get stern over the phone about it. There also wasn’t even a back up paper towel, just one roll. There is only one knife in the block that works - the only other one is bent in a million directions. There is no oven pan, which makes transporting food to the grills difficult. The bathrooms… the shower head is made for a 4 foot child. I’m only 5’4 and I had a hard time getting my head under the shower head. We also couldn’t take showers at the same time. The water ran completely cold when I was showering at the same time as one of my kids in the other shower. If all 4 of us needed a shower, at least 2 would have a completely cold shower. It also would be nice to have an option for a real blanket in the bedrooms. I realize that most people are hot in Hawaii but sometimes it gets a little chilly in the late night and mornings and a sheet doesn’t keep you warm enough. Again, this unit is spacious and mostly comfortable but just lacking a lot of functionality and creature comforts.
Well appointed, several beach items left for our use, view was good and unit was exactly as presented.
This was a great location with a lovely pool. The condo was clean and well equipped for a trip to the island.
Location was great but we had some issues with the facility. Were not made aware the pool would be closed for maintenance beforehand and shower was broken. No air conditioning but that could have been my oversight. View was breathtaking so there's the trade off.
The condo was clean and close to many beaches and down town Kona. Great view. Kitchen had needed pots, pans, utensils, dishes, etc. Condo also had boogie boards, beach chairs and small cooler. There was no AC, which was the only downside (but we knew this when booking). There are fans in living room and bedrooms, plus additional floor fans which helped. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.
Great property manager. Loved getting coffee and breakfast at Green Flash Coffee. I have never seen such beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed the ocean scenery: Cruise ship coming in, spinner dolphins and canoe paddling.
Very nice with good location
We enjoyed our stay. The unit was within walking distance to all the restaurants we like and a central location to most of the activities we enjoy as a family.
Good location, appropriately priced for what you get.
Complex has a good pool, bbq area and the property is well maintained. It is an easy walk into town.
The unit has a great ocean view and worked well for our stay.
It was a great experience. The location was perfect for us, we walked to Kona every morning for a great breakfast. Everything worked as it should and there were no surprises. The view could not be beat. We would definitely stay there again!
The condo is in a great location for easy access to the area sites and excursions. We were a party of three and it fit our needs perfectly.
Beautiful unit just minutes from town--perfect for my husband and me, daughter, son-in-law, and 4-year-old grandson!
Just right for our group and Sea Village is very comfortable place for families

Great location and unit for our family.
Pool was perfect for my daughter although very cold for me to attempt.
Parking was easy but be mindful there were a lot of stairs being on the 3rd floor.
My only negative was a frog out the bedroom window that kept us up at night. We searched for him during the day but no luck. It was difficult to fall asleep as he was very noisy
Wonderful view, saw dolphins from the lenai on the first morning! Good wifi internet. Thank you for stocking up with beach stuff like chairs, umbrella, and ice chest.
The condo was. Ice. The only problem was that it was advertised with air conditioning and instead had only fans.
The view from the lanai is great. We enjoyed listening to the ocean waves crash against the rocks. The lanai is private from other units.
This unit is set up great for families. We were happy to have two bedrooms and bathrooms. All of the furnishings were comfortable and clean.
The unit does not have air conditioning. We were there the first week in August and it was in the mid 80’s. The unit has plenty of fans to help but depending on when you visit AC would be nice. So sleeping with the windows open was a must. Unfortunately both bedrooms overlook the parking lot. There were a few nights that we were awaken by loud people and car doors closing.
We typically ate our meals on the lanai. We did eat inside when it was raining because the lanai isn’t completely covered. The unit does not have an indoor dining table so we ate at the peninsula which is fine. As the pictures show there are only 3 bar stools. It would have been nice to have had 4. There is plenty of room for them.
All in all we we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
Great condo, beautiful ocean view, you could walk to the downtown areas if you wanted, it’s close enough. Great restaurants and shopping nearby. The condo does not have AC, which we think is the norm there, we just weren’t prepared for how warm it got inside in the evenings. They provided tons of fans, which helped though. Cooled off by bedtime
The condo has an excellent location. Restaurants, shops, and beaches are all a 3 minute drive away. There’s also a great coffee shop at the entrance to the complex! The unit was comfortable and had everything we needed. We even saw pack and plays and other baby items that almost made me wish my teens were little again! The sunsets from the lanai are stunning. We had an amazing stay and would definitely come back.
We enjoyed the place and sitting out on the deck watching the sunsets and boats. We would rent this condo again if we came back to Kona.
