SUNSETS, SUNSETS, SUNSETS....Watch the dazzling colors of a ROMANTIC Hawaiian Sunset from your private Lanai or get lucky and see 'The Green Flash' on the horizon.

Aloha and welcome to the 'Hale Honu House' (The Turtle House). This unit it truly lovely with many upgrades and well appointed decorations. My husband fell in love with the view and the beautiful sunsets as well as the beautiful decor including custom 'hand' inlaid tile with fish, turtles (honu) and a beautiful colorful oval tile floor mosaic artwork with fish, coral, turtles and the ocean. It was a must buy for him due to the wonderful location and the uniqueness of the unit TOTALLY UPGRADED.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.



Mahalo,

Reviews

Enjoy the breeze and breathtaking views of the ocean.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 1, 2015

We had a great stay at this condo in Kona. It’s located along a main street, and we were excited to see the ocean and breathtaking views as the car turned into the property. There were so many exciting things to do on the island, we didn’t spend too much time indoors or get to use the pool. Our favorite times in the condo were the mornings and late evenings. The lanai had a perfect view of the ocean as we were actually right alongside it! In the mornings, we would drink coffee and watch the dolphins and cruise ships through the binoculars. At night, the breeze was perfect and we spent nights reading on the deck to the sound of ocean waves. All the amenities in our little condo were just what we needed: snorkels, beach towels, bath towels, pool noodles, games, DVDs, and washing/drying machine. The bed was very tall, but very comfortable! We took hot and good-pressured showers each night, too! I highly recommend this stay for anyone looking for a little condo in the perfect location with wonderful ocean views.

Excellent! 4.5/5 -

Wonderfull All Around

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first visit to Hawaii (both the state and the island) and this place couldn't have been better. I left a pretty lengthy review but overall, this was a great rental and I would love to stay here again one day.

OCEAN FRONT

The patio faces not only the ocean, but the sunset as well. So gorgeous. There was an added bonus of being able to see spinner dolphins and sea turtles right outside the window, along with some birds unique to the island. I do recommend bringing your own binoculars if you have some that are easy to transport. There are some provided, but the ones we own seem to be clearer with stronger magnification.

BEACH ACCESS

There is direct beach access and snorkeling gear available (along with the added bonus of a beach towels, cooler and ice packs.) The beach outside of the condo is rocky so if that is not your cup of tea, there is a sandy beach an easy 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive away.

CONDO INSIDE

The decor in the condo is fitting of a Hawaiian rental and made for a fun environment. I agree with some other reviews that it is slightly outdated but in my opinion, it is all part of the charm. I have no complaints aside from we seemed to visit during an unusually hot and humid year according to a local so some nights it took quite a while to cool down with the fans. Thankfully the air conditioner was in the bedroom so sleeping temperature was no problem at all.

GROCERY

Target and Walmart were the only grocery stores we went to and neither had disposable bags available. I recommend bringing a couple reusable bags since they travel easily.

ITINERARY 4 DAY

I'm adding this little note in case anyone is looking for an equal parts busy and relaxing vacation. Times given are approximate travel times from the condo.

1 - Pu’uhonua National Park - 30 min

2 - Volcanoes National Park - 2 hr

3 - Punalu’u Black Sand Beach (Sea Turtles) - 1.5 hr

4 - Kings Shops (Farmer's Market) - 30 min

Good location and nice view

  • 3 of 5

We appreciated the proximity to shops and restaurants and got to see spinner dolphins and a couple of turtles while sitting on the lanai. However, we found the finishings not so "totally updated". The patio furniture seemed of good quality and must have been recently refinished. But we had to drape the beach towels over the chairs to keep our clothing and skin from sticking to it. As well, the furniture seemed too heavy for the tile on the lanai. Several tiles were cracked outside and a couple of tiles inside seemed loose as well. The cabinets seemed old and the shelf in the base cabinet below the kitchen sink was cracked and caved in. The fridge had no handles and several broken or cracked shelves. The screen door was ill fitting (had a one inch gap at the top). Overall, we felt the condo had potential but required some attention.

An old condo that needs updating

  • 4 of 5

The binoculars were worthless. The rack in dishwasher is pieces. It woulf have been nice to have chairs for the beach. The first floor is a bonus as is the ocean in front of me for five weeks.

Double booked!!

  • 3 of 5

Imagine our surprise when we opened the door to our reserved VRBO condo a few days before Christmas to find it already occupied! We lugged our belongings back through the early evening rainstorm and began making phone calls. Fortunately, we were assigned to another unit, but one that had not yet been cleaned since the prior occupant. We stripped the dirty sheets and remade the bed, removed the dirty towels from the bathroom, and noted the concerns left by the prior renters: 1/2 of the double kitchen sink plugged and no pool keys. The weather turned brighter the next day, as did our spirits. We appreciated the little cooler that was available for our use as we headed out for our snorkeling adventures. We wished there had been a BBQ, or access to one in the facility (we were told there were none).

Had a Great Time at Sea Village

  • 5 of 5

The Condo is cute and has a great view of the Ocean . Saw Spinner Dolphins 5 our of the 14 days there “Bonus” . The weather was very hot the first week there but the Air Conditioner kept up in the Bedroom . The Condo is in a great location and easy to get in and out of . The swimming pool is great and also has a great view of the Ocean. We Barbecued out a couple of nights and they worked just fine with many grills so plenty of room . When renting a Condo you want to get what you paid for and we were very happy here ! Aloha and Mahalo see you next time !!
