Car: Recommended

Located right on Alii Drive which is Kona's life-blood, everything happens on Alii Drive. It is an easy level walk to the town center. Along the way see art galleries, coves with booming waves, restaurants, and many unique shops. Don't miss the Stone Church, Queens Palace, or the year-round market. Don't miss coffee farm tours.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: After college at Pennsylvania State University, I started from scratch, a successful outdoor store called Outdoor Experience. Ironically, except for leading trips and teaching windsurfing, it kept me away from the outdoors. I sold it and moved to the San Francisco Bay area. I invested in homes in San Francisco, Ca. and Park City, Utah. Loving the outdoors and nature naturally drew me to Hawaii. It's so special, no where else on earth combines Fun, Excitement, and Beauty with a perfect year-round Climate.

Why the Owner Chose Royal Sea Cliff:
I searched the Kona Coast with the best agents in Kona, Kona Resort Properties. Royal Sea Cliff Resort, has the best of all worlds. Beautiful maintained and superly designed and on best part of the Ocean and Coast. It is the closest Resort to Kona, (easy walk) that still feels like a tropical paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This Architecture is the best of the modern styles. It works so well with the Land and the Ocean, and the ancient Lava Flow Bluff. Though the buildings look imposing, they are not over 25' tall at any one place. Only a few Studios were built, and are special since they are always at the end of the wings, surrounded on three sides with lush tropical vegetation. Very private and very peaceful.
