The photos did not lie: the balcony is literally steps away from the water and a joy to enjoy. The condo’s are friendly, clean and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place.

We enjoyed the property and feel it was accurate in the description. The only thing that we did not find were pool towels. It did not matter because we had our own pool towels. It was nice to see the ocean and hear the waves each day and evening. Thank you for sharing your place.

This property is as stated. kitchen is well appointed. Right on the ocean. Right next to the pool and hot tub. Hot tub jets not functioning most of the time. Very clean. Walls are paper thin but expected, so windows open for waves difficult to hear over other people noise. close windows, use fans and ear plugs work fine. Found ants in an open box of sugar that somebody apparently didn't realize and left open. But that is typical for the entire island. You are on an island so don't leave open food out on counters or in cupboards! We took garbage out everyday as instructed! Overall an excellent experience here. Highly recommend it

We wanted to leave a review to thank this property owner and help fellow travelers with making a decision on a place to stay. In short, you will not be disappointed. This condo is exactly as advertised from the amenities to the location. First, the condo is well equipped with everything you will need to cook, do laundry, or visit the beach. It’s not in the listing but we found a nice assortment of beach gear including chairs, masks, and beach toys. The two king beds were very comfortable and there is very good air conditioning units in both bedrooms. Between the ceiling fans and A/C we found sleeping to be very uncomfortable after a long day in the sun. The listing pictures cannot impart how beautiful the view is from the lanai. The sitting area is private yet provides panoramic views of the ocean and the town of Kona. We watched everything from flying fish to whales while sipping morning coffee. Also, the pool and spa are just a short walk away to complete the perfect day. Parking was refreshing easy and we never had an issue finding a spot. You will not be disappointed with this quiet hidden gem in Kona. A big thank you to the owners and property management company (Vacasa) for a wonderful vacation in Kona.

No trick photography here. Photos are accurate. Right at waters edge. Cleanest VRBO we've ever stayed at. Very well stocked with kitchen supplies, beach gear, extra towels, bedding. Location is great. Definitely a 5 star accommodation.

Relaxation is what my husband and I needed after my recent shoulder surgery. We spent about 75% of our time on the island in our condo. Sitting out on the balcony enjoying breakfast and lunch was so pleasant. Our afternoon naps in the living room were so relaxing with the sound of the waves. The breathtaking sunsets were amazing as well! This property will definitely be first on our list for our next visit to Kona.

The property was beautiful and in a great location. We were able to see the whales and dolphins from the lanai. The condo was spacious and just right for us four adults. We could only find one set of towels, hand towels, and wash cloths for each bathroom. There were beach towels though. We just purchased some wash cloths to use while we were there and did laundry almost every day. Even though there was no air conditioning, there was good air flow from the lanai door and windows, and ceiling fans. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property.

You couldn’t be closer to the ocean with a more spectacular view. The condo is in a great spot, close to local amenities and easy to find. It was well stocked with beach towels, beach chairs and a beach umbrella. The only thing which would’ve made it perfect was curtains on the bedroom windows to darken the room.

Had great fun. But we're a bit disappointed the unit furnishings were quite unlike the VRBO photo gallery.

March 2024

The unit is clean, updated, and well stocked including what you need for the beach. The listing is accurate and the pictures do it justice. The owners are responsive and great to work with. It’s location on Ali’i Drive near Kailua Village make it ideal. Sea Village is well maintained. Views of the harbor and sunsets can’t be beat

We have stayed at this complex twice now and would absolutely do so again. The grounds are immaculate and well cared for. The unit was exactly as advertised and well stocked, but with an exception- if you don't mind the only "food" available is salt, pepper, and the baking soda in the fridge you are fine. We have stayed other places that left more for guests but that is a personal choice and would not stop us from staying here again. Just thought you should know what you are getting if that matters to you

Great oceanfront condo and far enough away from the heavily travelled Ali'i road that we heard only waves crashing and not the cars. Many other properties are right on the road.

This property was the perfect location for our adventure on the Big Island. It was spacious enough for two couples but would be great for a family, too. We really enjoyed watching whales from the lanai and the waves were hypnotic. The condo was well equipped, clean, and quiet (except for the doves whose idea of morning was a little different than mine lol.) We will definitely be back!

Marta was wonderful to work with and the condo was beautiful. It included everything you might need, such as spices, beach toys, beach chairs, etc. Sea Village was a well maintained complex-pool, grills cleaned daily.

A lovely balcony view! Well kept BBQ area and pool area. The unit is dated and could use some updating. Patio doors and closet doors did not function well which is a note not a huge concern. The patio and common area made this an excellent stay. If the unit were to be refreshed this would truly be a 9/10 location.

Location .. location... location. Saw whales almost every day right, amazing sunsets and crashing waves from the lanai.

February 2024

The condo was easy to get to and in a great location for getting to different parts of the island. Beds were comfortable and the owner kept the condo stocked with lots of appreciated extras like beach chairs, coolers, ice packs for the coolers, box fans (great for white noise to sleep and during the hottest part of the day), and even some bamboo beach mats and beach towels! In unit laundry was helpful to have, too. The kitchen was well stocked for a rental and had most of the things we needed for cooking--which was great to not feel wasteful buying a ton of stuff. The balcony was fabulous--you can't get any closer to the ocean! There was a slight bump in the stay as just before our arrival, the upstairs unit (not this unit) had a leak which required their plumber entry to ours and had resulted in some damage/debris while he worked to fix it. Our unit owner and the upstairs owner were on top of communication and were kind, professional, and accommodating about the whole process. Management handled the plumber getting in and out so any impact was minimized as we did not need to alter our daily plans to let them in/out. As a condo owner myself, I understand the headache and I couldn't ask for anyone to have handled it better. the condo was very clean all around, though the bedroom carpets were on the older side, however, in speaking with the owner it looks like it will be getting upgraded shortly. Would definitely stay again!

We enjoyed this rental very much. The sea view is stunning. We were able to watch whales every day for the entire week. The unit was clean and equipped with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The location is a walkable distance to downtown Kona with plenty of restaurants. There is a convenience store and a vendor market including the best fish tacos half a mile in the other direction. The complex was mostly quiet and peaceful during our stay, which seemed to be mostly retirees with some families with very young children. The pool was lovely as are the gardens surrounding the buildings. Pool is not recommended for older children as it is small and does not permit toys or floating contraptions. The host was also quite helpful and responsive to questions. We would stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Village. Our favorite part was watching the dolphins on our lanai. The location of the lanai affords privacy with a fabulous view. The grills are located near the pool with tables and garden lights. It has a festive and friendly vibe. And finally, unlike many VRBOs, the mattresses were in great shape and the sheets soft. We slept in comfort during our stay.

The condo was beautifully remodeled and well stocked with all we needed. Great location. Less than a mile walk to shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. AND whale watching!

The tv was hard to watch. The furniture needs to be updated. The beds need to be updated. The view was great. We had stayed in this unit before. But I must say that for the amount that we paid we could have done better. We have been staying at the Sea Village for about 25 yrs. We talked to other guests who paid a lot less than us. Larry G

Great stay, this is a club wyndham property and the grounds and pool area were immaculate. The unit was well stocked with all of the housewares you need to be comfortable during your visit. Nice touch was there was a blue igloo cooler so you could bring drinks on your road trips or to the beaches. The pool area was nice, plenty of nice BBQ's to cook on and the open back patio is where we ate breakfast and dinners. Not a single complaint, owner very responsive and helpful with questions/answers info. Is it walking distance to downtown, for us it was but we are in our early 50's and in good shape. We walked to Honils beach (10 minutes) every evening for the sunset. Definately would stay here again.

Condo was comfortable. After booking the property, I reached out to the property manager several times but never heard back (including on our arrival day). But, the backup contact was responsive. We appreciated being able to check in 1 hour early. The kitchen had almost everything we needed but was limited in the number of settings. The beach towels, chairs, and umbrella were in great shape. We were left 1 extra roll of TP and 2 Tide pods/1 dryer sheet (for a 9-night stay) which we found limited. The bedroom AC unit is a stand-alone unit on the floor which was a bit loud. But in December, we found we really didn't need the AC. The living room furniture was sufficient but could use some updating for comfort. We did enjoy the view looking across the bay at Alii Drive. We could see the cruise ships anchored in the harbor and saw a whale close to shore one morning.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo sits above the waves in a beautiful bay where whale sightings are not unusual. The exterior property is well maintained. We did not have insects at all which is always a challenge in this climate. The staff were responsive and anticipated needs. It was a nice touch to find ice made and a couple of cold sodas in the refrigerator upon our arrival. The interior of the condo was immaculate! The only downside to this property is the livingroom has a hide-a-bed couch and only one chair for sitting. We like our evenings ‘comfy’. For many visitors who spend little time in their accommodation it would not be an issue. The condo has air conditioners, but they were noisy. We chose to use the overhead fans which worked for us to stay cool.

Our first impression was the condo was even nicer than it appeared online. It contained everything we needed for our weeklong stay. We particularly enjoyed the views and the location, since we could easily walk into Kona for food or shopping. It was really nice to have the pool, since the surf was quite high on most of the days of our stay. The Murphy bed was useful and comfortable for one member of our party. We would happily return again. This was our first trip to the Big Island and there’s much more to see than we could do in a week.

A gorgeous setting! The high tide with big, crashing waves made me think the condo might get engulfed in water once or twice, but alas, we survived and had a lovely week on the island and gained a deep appreciation for the sights, sounds and splashes of the great Kona coast.
