WHY PAY to go to HAWAII and SETTLE for a VIEW of a BUILDING or SMALL Glimpse of the OCEAN, When you can EXPERIENCE the TRANQUILITY and ATMOSPHERE of the BIG ISLAND because you are RIGHT on the PACIFIC OCEAN with a 180 DEGREE OCEANFRONT VIEW!! Decent Hotels can cost much more and without the view. A comparable view at a nice hotel in Hawaii would easily cost $350-600/nt. for a hotel room without all the comforts of home.

Watch the cruise boats sail into the sunset while you eat dinner on the lanai or watch the spinner dolphins below while you sip your morning Kona coffee. These are not stock photos, these are actual photos we took from our Condo Lanai!

About Kyle Cunningham

Owned and operated by Mountain and Oceanfront Properties - John and Margie Bartleman. Managed by our son, Kyle Cunningham.

We fell in love with this unit and the Big Island while on vacation with no intentions to purchase anything! After visiting all the other islands, we quickly noticed that 'The Big Island' is not crowded and commercialized like the other Hawaiian Islands. Kailua-Kona is still quaint and beautiful which we loved. Plus we felt that The Big Island has to offer what all the other islands have to offer wrapped all in one island. It's hard not to fall in love with the REAL HAWAIIAN feeling and beauty. So, my husband and I were walking down Alii' Drive and stopped to 'just look' in the window of a Real Estate agency. To my surprise, my husband walked in and said I want to buy a condo on the ocean in Kona!!! The rest is history...... We have the best view and are the closet to the ocean that probably the Island has to offer. Our view is used for MANY other advertisements. What more can I say???? We fell in love...

UPDATE...that was the beginning of our vacation rental business...we now own 5 plus buying a 6th soon! Check out our other properties on the link to 'other properties owner owns'

Kyle Cunningham purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kyle Cunningham chose Kailua-Kona

My husband and I plan to retire in our condo.

What makes this condo unique

There is nothing more relaxing than being right on the ocean with the sounds of the ocean waves, not to mention the spectacular sunsets along with spinner dolphins and whales right below.

Guestbook comments from the manager

John & Margie,

We wanted to let you know that we enjoyed staying at both of your oceanfront condos. They were both fantastic and the ocean views and sound of the waves was just spectacular. Your condos were by far the best places we have rented on any of the Hawaiian islands. We will definitely stay with you again on our next trip to Kona. You provided everything we needed to make this vacation one of our best ever. We cannot say cannot say enough about the condos or your great service and attention to make us feel right at home, except with much better views and sounds.

Honeymoon on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent split our honeymoon staying on Maui and the Big Island, and we are so glad we chose this great condo for our stay on the Big Island. It had everything we needed and more. We were blown away at how well-stocked the apartment was. We love cooking, so it worked out great because the kitchen is super nice and has everything you need to make the perfect dinner to enjoy while watching the great sunsets right off your private lanai. There is a closet full of everything you could need for the beach: tons of towels, beach chairs, boogie board, some snorkel fins, beach bag, umbrella, binoculars, and much more. The condo has air but you don't need it because witht the abundance of windows and the great trade winds you can just sit back, relax, and feel the breeze. There are tons of things to do within a short drive of the condo. Our favorite beach was Kekaha Kai State Park, its a 10 minute bumpy drive over some lava rock but you can do it in any car, and trust it was the best beach on Maui or the big island. I would also recommend Black sand beach, Volcano NP, Rainbow falls, and snorkeling just about anywhere on the west side of the island.

Owner's Response: Glad that we could help to make your honeymoon everything that you've ever dreamed of! John loves to gourmet cook so we made sure to stock the kitchen with plenty of Hawaiian cookbooks and many spices for all to enjoy. We also have the rice maker that he loves! Yes, many have said that our view is the best that they have seen. I love to watch the dolphins and whales below from our private Lanai. Come back and visit us sometime! Mahalo, Margie

The owners description is honest.

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully decorated, quiet oceanfront condo. From the lanai we viewed beautiful sunsets, spinner dolphins and a whale flipping his tale. This property has a nice pool and hot tub. The location is close to beaches, restaurants and shops of Kailua-Kona. We would stay here again.

Spectacular View!

  • 4 of 5

On arrival, the unit was spotless and exactly as described. We were hoping to be a bit closer to town but we used the town shuttle rather than drive as parking in town is hit and miss. We saw whales every day and spinner dolphins on several days, right from the lanai and without needing the binoculars.

Thanks for everything!

Ocean Front

  • 3 of 5

The condo is as advertised, ocean front and the views are amazing as are the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks below. You'll love watching the sunsets, dolphins and whales (when they show up) from the lanai.

We arrived at the condo just after 5 p.m. on Saturday Nov. 25th to find that it had not been cleaned from the previous guests. It's very disappointing to have to change sheets, clean the bathroom, do dishes, etc. Kyle Cunningham never replied to our email and didn't provide his phone number. I was able to get ahold of the house cleaner and she was very apologetic and explained she was not informed that there was a back to back reservation. She did bring some supplies over that evening which was nice and she did clean it Sunday morning but we had to be gone while it was cleaned. At the very least Mr. Cunningham should have replied to my email and it would have been nice to have our cleaning deposit refunded for the inconvenience.

Some other things to be aware of and have been been mentioned by others include:

The bed. It's terrible. There are two large body sized divots that are impossible to avoid. You will naturally roll into them. The bottom line is that the mattress is worn out and needs to be replaced.

The AC works fine and we only used the bedroom unit to cool off the bedroom before going to bed. It is on a 4 our timer and it is LOUD. If you like white noise then it won't be a problem. We never used the AC unit in the living area.

The main TV did not have a remote and we could not turn it on.

I don't recall any reviews mentioning that this is a third floor unit and there are NO elevators. Not a big deal for us but it could be for others.

The pool is small, no kids toys allowed (common at most condo's) and it has a wall that prevents any view of the ocean when lying on a lounger.

There is no small ice chest for use at the beach or day trips.

Pros: Great Views, very close to town, all appliances worked, convenient parking, beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels.

The photos and good reviews are accurate

  • 4 of 5

Sea Village is a great complex (this was my second stay at Sea Village, first at this unit), and this is a very nice unit within it. The view is perfect, just as in the photos. There's nothing between you and the water, listen to the waves as you go to sleep, perfect!

I chose this unit because it does have the option of air conditioning, but we didn't end up using it at all. We were fine using the fans and leaving the windows and lanai door open to get the breeze. We stayed in the winter, not the summer, but the weather was in the low 80s outside and we were comfortable within the condo. Everything inside the unit was in good condition except for a troublesome spot on the popcorn ceiling that dropped some white material down onto the rug. The bed has some dips in the memory foam but it's not bad.

As with any condo that provides "extras" for your convenience, don't count on them as a previous renter may have jacked it up somehow or straight ran off with it. I couldn't find a cooler anywhere. Or a coffee grinder, but it wasn't a big deal, I just bought a new one and left it there. So anyone renting after November 2017... buy your delicious Kona coffee whole bean! Grind with freedom! Coffee maker that was provided works just fine.

The washer and dryer in this unit is small so don't overload it, but both the wash and dry cycles are very speedy so you can probably bring half the clothes you think you need! Laundry pod type HE soap works great so that you don't have to worry about over loading the washer, which is plastered with warnings about how Pele's wrath will rise against you with the white hot fury of 10,000 burning suns if you bust the washer with your over enthusiasm for soap, or the wrong choice of soap.

This unit is really nicely located. The main shops and restaurants of Ali'i Drive are about 1 mile away. If you're walking at a pokey pace it's probably 15 minutes. I recommend walking when you can, because parking at peak times down there is bananas.

The only downside to this stay is that the permanent resident neighbors didn't like us! I heard the woman complaining "LOOK AT ALL THIS MUD THEY TRACKED UP HERE!" and then heard the man saying "WELL THEY'D BETTER GET OUT HERE AND CLEAN IT UP!" We had not gone anywhere muddy at all. All shoes were clean. I went outside anyway to search for this mud and I couldn't even find a mess to clean up. They gave us the stink eye for the rest of the stay, and did make us feel like an imposition.

What a spectacular view of the ocean!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

You sent a message12 hours ago

Kyle... As we are ready to move on to next island, our first trip to Hawaii and our first stay in Big Island was a good move, without a doubt a spec liar view of the ocean, right after in front of the condo. Wow.... Very comfortable place to stay!!!!!! Mahalo.....

Definitely, we would give this place high 5 stars, will return and recommend friends.

The downside are:

1. Need blind in the patio. Afternoon sun make room too warm!

2. Master bedroom mattress, definitely, need to be replace. It cause my back sore in the am!!!!!

3. TVs... We were not able to watch any shows, only one channel! We were not able to figure out with 2 remotes. Suggestion...put instructions on how to use tvs remotes and list of channels available in the blue book.

Again, Mahalo for letting us to stay at your place. Such a gorgeous place to stay, we loved it!!!
