Sea Village 2 Bedroom Condo
RIGHT ON THE WATER in one of Kailua-Kona's most sought after complexes! This open and spacious, 2-bedroom condo has a spectacular, 180-degree, Kona coastline and ocean view. From the private lanai, watch spinner dolphins as you savor your morning Kona coffee. Later, experience a beautiful sunset after a fun day exploring the island or enjoying the beautiful oceanside pool and hot tub. The location is convenient to historic downtown restaurants and shops, and many popular island activities.
This condo is the largest of the Sea Village 2-bedroom floor plans at almost 1000 square feet. Guests enjoy the roomy and open kitchen/dining/living area with ocean views, but especially love watching dolphins, whales (Dec-Mar), and fish just off the lanai. The condo had been nicely updated (e.g., some bathroom improvements in 2019) and as new owners, we will continue making further upgrades..
We've ensured the unit is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful vacation in paradise, including wifi, a well-stocked kitchen, extra toiletries, full-sized washer and dryer, cable television, and beach gear. The no-stairs entry is helpful for transporting luggage or bikes, or for those with mobility concerns.
The master bedroom has a California King mattress and an en suite full bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the guest bath with walk-in shower is just steps away. Both bedrooms have ample closets and dressers for storage and are cooled by the ocean breezes and fans (sorry, there is no AC).
The grounds of Sea Village are lush and well-maintained. The beautiful pool and hot tub are centrally located and oceanside. Just behind the pool is a large common area with BBQ's area for grilling. There is also a popular, privately-owned coffee, sandwich and smoothie shop on the property.
Other things to note:
Sea Village condos were constructioned without A/C. So we apologize that there is no air conditioning in our unit due that and HOA restrictions on new installations, but we do have ceiling and stand fans in each room. This condo will be warmer than other condos with A/C, and may not be for you if you like a cold environment. But, because it is located right on the ocean, the trade winds usually also help to keep the unit comfortable. The mauka (mountainside) breeze typically develops after sunset and helps cool the bedrooms overnight if the windows are open.
We STRONGLY recommend "cancel for any reason" travel insurance for our guests. We hope you understand, that as an individual owner, we cannot take on the role of travel insurer so will only provide refunds in line with the VRBO cancellation policy. If you would like to be eligible to receive a refund beyond the percentages specified relative to your check-in date for issues such as health or family emergencies, flight changes or cancellations, volcanic eruptions that do not threaten the condo, work schedule changes, the potential for reduced air quality, and more, please purchase coverage from your favorite travel insurer. (We've had requests for refunds for almost all these reasons in just one year from guests who didn't purchase coverage.)
Don't be alarmed!
There is a monthly practice tsunami warning alarm, typically on the first business day of every month at 11:45 a.m.
What's that sound?
The Sea Village complex was built without air conditioning. As a consequence, it is an open windows community. The ocean waves are audible throughout the unit, but less so in the bedrooms. Most find the sound soothing, but if you need complete silence when sleeping, this may not be the location for you. In addition, you may hear the occasional coqui frog after dark. This is an invasive species that is actively exterminated so it is not common. Additionally, the living portion of the unit faces the ocean to maximize enjoyment of the view, which means the bedrooms are on the same side of the building as the parking. Everyone's windows are open, so we encourage guests to be quiet when coming and going and when talking or taking calls in the bedrooms. You will, inevitably, hear some guests move their luggage down the stairs or talk a bit too loudly on their way in/out during quiet hours. We hope the pleasant sounds outweigh the others. Happily, road noise is not a problem.
Construction at the Sea Village complex or areas surrounding the condo is beyond our control. We do not offer refunds, relocations, or discounts for construction. If there is excessive noise beyond normal working hours (typically 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), we will attempt to contact the construction site manager regarding working hours.
We work to make our unit a beautiful, comfortable, place for your vacation, but we know the most spectacular parts of your visit will be the ocean, the island, wildlife, and Hawaiian culture.
We recently purchased our unit as our dream getaway. We are updating many things as time, resources, and renovation restrictions permit. We hope you'll love all the extras we provide and accept the little quirks (e.g., a blemish on the counter) that come with staying in our place rather than in a cookie-cutter hotel room.
