Punaluu condo description

Aloha! You have found 'Hale Sweet Hale' an OCEANFRONT Hawaiian-style bungalow nestled on the Southeast coast of the 'Big Island' of Hawaii. A 100% remodel of the unit was completed in June of 2009. This is a full one bedroom condominium with a king bed and bath on the entry level and living room, dining room and kitchen 4 steps up on the upper level with a comfortable Queen sofa sleeper in the living room. Greet the sunrise with your coffee on the lanai and view whales lazily basking in the warm waters, spend your days exploring South Point, the volcano, nearby villages and ancient heaus or just relax by the pool or in the hot tub. In the evening you can meet your neighbors while you grill your dinner by the pool.

Colony One at Sea Mountain offers all the conveniences and luxury of modern resort living in a timeless rural Hawaiian setting. Ideally situated a five minute walk to legendary Black Sand Beach at Punaluu and charming Hokuloa Church. Drive just a half hour to Volcano National Park where you can experience the thrill of watching lava flow to the sea and then return home to enjoy the relaxing, tropical setting. This is a very dramatic area that stirs the imagination and allows glimpses into what ancient Hawaii must have been like.

Local style restaurants are just a few minutes away in Naalehu or Pahala. The town of Volcano, a 35 minute drive and just outside the park entrance on Old Volcano Road, boasts two highly acclaimed restaurants: Kileaua Lodge (reservations a must) and Thai Thai as well as Kiawe Cafe and Lava Rock Cafe.
VOLCANO UPDATE!!! The park is open 24 hours a day and it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to visit the Jaggar Museum observation area and see the red hot glow of lava in the Halemaumau crater. Amazing and awe inspiring. The lava has been rising in the crater since early Oct. 2012 and rangers are on hand until 9:00 PM.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We live in northern California and have relatives on the Big Island. We purchased a home at Kealakekua Bay ( for our family's use and as a vacation rental in 1999. We enjoy many recreational sports including backpacking, skiing, hiking, golfing, hunting and fishing and of course snorkeling and kayaking in Hawaii.

                  Why the Owner Chose Punaluu:
                  We have enjoyed success with our Kona vacation rental and formed many warm relationships with our repeat guests. We found ourselves visiting the south island on every trip to Hawaii and were so impressed with the condos at Colony One and the beautiful grounds that we couldn't resist purchasing another vacation in Hawaii.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We enjoy the community at Colony One, meeting people around the bar-b-ques at night or at the pool and the beautiful golf course. There is a rich cultural heritage in the area that is so much more natural and less developed than any place we in the islands. The proximity to the volcano, the charming town of Volcano with it's great restaurants and not to miss Sunday Farmer's Market and then nearby Na'alehu ensure that there's always something fun to do.
