Sea village was a good location. Walking into the town, about 1 1/2 miles was not easy, no sidewalks.
The unit needs a update, I e new flooring and update kitchen.
Nice pool area and lovely grounds. Our view was specular.
C pluse ,will not choose again
The good: the view is amazing. Wow. And the property managers on site are great. From here, it goes all downhill.
First, the carpet is disgusting. It is worn and old. There are stains everywhere. They have tried covering some with throw rugs, which we kept tripping over.
Second, the living room furniture is junk. You can sit in it for maybe 5 minutes before you realize it is completely worn out and has zero support.
The bathroom has zero counter space. Some simple shelves on the wall would make a huge difference.
The television is smaller than the computer monitor I have on my desk at home.
Wonderful location with a great view. A little dated but we had a great stay
Overall we loved the location, the view from the patio is flat out fabulous and the pool and spa area were very nice. Wonderful ocean sounds fill the condo 24/7. It is close to town, but away from the tourist hustle and bustle. The sparkling clean Weber BBQs were great to cook on and the yard had ample picnic table space to eat there if desired. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. The nearest sandy beach is about 5 minutes driving away, but the rocky shore in front of our patio afforded privacy and quiet. Overall, it was a comparatively good deal for the price.
There were some drawbacks that didn't sway us from having a good time, but might for others. The unit is up 3 flights of stairs with no elevator, so it is quite a hump to get all your luggage and any groceries up. The carpet on the patio is rotted and stained and needs replacement. The carpet in the hallway and living room is badly stained and clearly had some event that discolored the carpet all along the west side of the condo. The daytime temperatures in Dec. were high enough (80's) that it was uncomfortably warm midday even with all the windows open and there is no AC (fans are available but not very effective). No fan or ventilation in the bathroom, so it very hot and humid for showering. The mattress cover on the bed was stained and falling apart, we removed it after first time we changed the sheets. Please clean the window screens, they were filthy. The WIFI required frequent rebooting. Lastly, the instructions in both the notebook and attached to the wall are out of date (restaurant info is out of date and it is NOT necessary to report your car license to management, which was difficult to find in any event!).
Again, we enjoyed our stay, but we could understand why this place was priced below market. We would recommend this rental as long as you are aware of the drawbacks listed above. .
Condo is dated but in a good way. Just should update a few fixtures. Love the old school Hawaii vibe.
The location is great
I think our stay would have been a 5 if there was a/c so that we would not have to be bombarded by fan noise constantly.
Otherwise everything else was good.
Great location! We loved the unit! Sleeping mask and ear plugs useful, bedroom window is not covered so light from courtyard comes in.
Watched spinner dolphins from the lanais most mornings. Heard and saw owls in the evenings near the parking lot..
The only drawback is a 7 am check out. Other than that, awesome stay!
You can’t beat the view you can see all the way to Kona. Was clean and had everything you needed (sand chairs, noodles for floating, lots of beach towels). Great location easy mile walk to Kona strip. Called onTV not working and they came quickly to replace very nice people! The resort was well maintained and Green Flash coffee was a nice perk.
The pictures were several years old. Needs new flooring and new kitchen cupboards- all banged and beat up
The lanai has great views but has an old moldy carpet that never dried
We had lots of ants but property management provided ant traps- never really went away
Love Sea Village location but will look for a different/ updated rental next time.
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo. Reviews were amazing hearing the ocean every morning when we woke up was a treat. Would definitely stay here again unit was clean and stocked and wildcat thank you again
The grounds are beautiful. Walk to town is about a mile. Our condo was an amazing time capsule from the mid to late 80s! We enjoyed the step back in time, Hawaii Style. Very Retro vibe. We loved the pool area, it was clean and busy most days. I would stay here again.
The greatest view ever. Poorly stocked. Filthy rugs. Book only after it is renovated if that ever occurs
Encountered two cockroaches in the kitchen upon returning from two separate outings. We're able to dispense with one... they're fast critters.
Loved the condo. The lanai was perfect. Watched dolphins in the mornings and sunsets in the evenings.
A few cons however: it got quite hot in the condo, we fished out every fan we could find which helped make it tolerable.
Water alarm went off and no one knew how to turn it off. We had to pull the mattress onto the lanai and shut the sliding glass door in order to sleep...bugs and bird poop on me next morning... oh and it rained on us!
No beach chairs or cooler... other then that it was awesome!!!
Walking distance to town. Pool by the sea. Dolphins swimming by and a lania overlooking the ocean. Unit is a bit dated, but the location is so wonderful you don’t notice it. No air conditioning, but there are overhead fans and the provided large, portable fans.
The view from this unit was beautiful but the unit itself is very worn and dated. The front door deadbolt did not work with the keys supplied, the pots and pans are so worn we were afraid to cook with them. I did some laundry and cleaned the dryer vent prior to using because it was so full and found dead cockroaches in it. After being there a week a cleaning person came in and took the pillow cases off the pillows we brought with us folded them and put them in the linen closet. They were not washed, I guess we were suppose think they were clean. I would not stay here again.
Condo 1303 had lots of space and wonderful views.
The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals.
There were boogie boards and water activity items to get out on the water.
Great views overlooking the ocean.
Only a 1.5 mile walk to town, lots of food options closer as well.
Small coffee/restaurant located next to the complex was good for a quick coffee or snack.
No air conditioning, but the breeze from the ocean and a fan were more than enough to keep you cool at night.
I'd have a hard time coming up with any.
I would only point out that other reviews say that there are a lot of stairs to climb as the condo is on the 3rd floor. We didn't find it to be much of an issue.
With the windows open you could really hear the ocean. I wouldn't consider that a con since we wanted the ocean side, but some might not like it. It will get warm if you have to leave the windows closed.
Overall - fantastic stay and location. We would definitely stay there again.
Great place - view is spectacular for watching the sunset and listening to the waves. Spacious and clean. Very central for all activities on the island and a good walking distance to town. Would definitely stay there again.
Know that there is 32 steps to the unit. It was hotter up there than in my daughters first floor unit. The furniture was attractive and very comfortable. There was a nice view. There is only one nightstand making it difficult to read at night. There is no curtain or blind over the bedroom window and there is a bright exterior light shining through. It looked like a brand new washer and dryer. Bring extra T.P We were supplied one and a half rolls of toilet paper. We found a very long worm or centipede in the bedroom. There were numerous dead ants and bird poop on the deck.
I would not recommend this unit only because I have stayed at much nicer, more updated units in the past.
