... We drove through a beautiful, beach front neighborhood before landing at a nice little park on a coral beach. This beach is located directly off a coral reef so all that washes ashore are huge hunks of beautiful white coral. They mix with the natural, black lava and create a salt and pepper effect on the shore. Be warned: this beach is very rocky and should not be attended without footware (unless you want the most abrasive pedicure, ...
... parking lot". There were locals there selling cold beverages. I asked Ed if there was a bathroom somewhere. He said yes! I asked where? He said just behind those bushes :-) I asked what if people walk there. He said nobody would walk there. So I had to go. Unfortunately the morning water seems to go through my body very fast and there was no bathroom along this stretch of road .... :-(

Having made it abundantly clear that the last thing we were going to do with our limited time was waste it at a time share presentation, we did walk away with a discount card that worked in many of the local restaurants. So armed with this, it was out to eat and we found a great restaurant just down the road and got 20% off. Result…

Our highlight of O'Hau island was Pearl harbour. We took a bus again at 6.30am to be at the memorial to be there at 7am when it opens. When we arrived there was a queue already and our ticket time allocation was for 8.45am for the SS Arizona memorial (we were told to get there early, because they run out of time slot) ...

We fly out of Kona at 2pm to Honolulu then to New York, but we don't arrive till early Thursday so you wont hear from us until then. Our tea tonight consisted of bits and pieces and we had a two litre bottle of red wine to finish, you can't take liquids on the plane and we didn't want o waste it. We have been here for over a month now, we didn't think that there was so much to do and ...

We couldn't ask for a prettier view. We are right on the water, overlooking the town of Kona. It's about a 1.5 mi walk into town so a nice way to get a little exercise and burn off dinner and drinks.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Village Resort Kailua-Kona
Our family of four (2 adults & 2 kids (5 and 3) stayed at Sea Village April 13-21, 2005. I must say I was disappointed. Initally, I thought we were getting a great deal for the money but after realizing our options once we got to Kona, I realized we could have done much better saying up North at a desination hotel (Hilton Waikoloa) or renting a house in Parker Ranch. My reasons for giving this property only an "Okay" rating include the location of the property, family friendlyness, noise level from road, bugs, bugs & more bugs in the unit, the condition of the unit and beach options near us.
Boy, my wife wanted to be right on the water to hear those waves splash 24 hours a day and this condo provides it. The Lanai darn near overhangs the seawall. One morning we really enjoyed sitting at the Lanai table and watching the humpback whales spout and splash about, and those were OUR whales, as we live in SE Alaska where those very whales summer, then winter in Hawaii --- smart whales.
We (a party of 3 adults) stayed at Sea Village for one week in August, 2004. We stayed in room 1205 (building 1), which we rented through the internet (Konaweb). The rental process was very efficient, and they sent us very detailed information on how to reach the place from the airport, and all amenities around.
Spent a week here and had no problems with the condo. Stayed in unit 4208, which is privately owned and was rented from Lehua properties, not Sunterra. Outstanding value at $100/night (+ tax and $85 cleaning fee) for a 2bdr/2bath (ocean front) that can sleep up to 6 adults.
Not Too Bad
We stayed in unit 3-207 for over a week. The condo could use some serious updating. Carpet is soiled and stained. Kitchen had a ton of bugs.
The people are very nice at the office and other guests. The grill area is a fun time at night. Bedrooms are nice. Good size and comfortable.
We are heading back to Kona in a few days and will be staying at the Sea Village for the third time. Our family loves this place! The condos are roomy and have great ocean views - I would recommend staying in buildings 1,3 or 4 since they are on the water. We really like unit #1205 which faces north towards Kona town - there is a magnificent view from the balcony at night. This unit is also slightly larger than the others (great for families with kids). There is a large grassy barbecue area in the middle of buildings 1-3 that is great for family get-togethers (we usually come to Hawaii with other family members and on one visit had 8 kids running around so the play area was key!). The pool area is ocean front and is surrounded by outdoor carpeting and that is great for toddlers who always seem to be running and falling. Only minus is that you must drive to get to Kona town, but we have never had a problem parking and the drive is only 5 minutes. Last but not least - rates at the Sea Village are very reasonable.
Nice views and people
This condo resort is comfortable and roomy, with good grounds and a friendly staff. The views on the water are excellent. There is no real beach access around and shopping, restaurants, and services are a bit distant (not withing walking distance). Like with all condos, prices vary - shop carefully!
We stayed in unit #1101 for a week. The condo itself was comfortable; the view was stupendous. We had ocean view from almost every room! The kitchen could use some updating and we had ants. We told management and they sprayed for them the next day which got a majority of them. But those little critters seem to be everywhere so we made an arrangement with the ones who survived - you don't bother us and we won't bother you. ;-)
