Three week getaway
I’ll start with the good. The complex is very well kept, clean quiet and on Alii drive ocean side. It has viewing areas for spectacular sunset and ocean views. The apartment checked all of my boxes. Parking right underneath, always available. Washer and dryer in the apartment in good working order. Air conditioning. Heated pool and hot tub.
Unexpected extras: The kitchen is not new but neat and very well equipped. They have well kept BBQ areas at the pool as well as away from the pool. Free coffee (every morning), juice, water, computers and printers at reception. Beach & snorkel gear in closet. Tennis court with Pickleball lines right on our doorstep. The owner left basic supplies, laundry detergent, dish soap, toilet paper etc.
The not so good. Not within walking distance of a beach, although within a close drive from some of the nicest beaches in Kona. The owner was very difficult to get ahold of before our arrival to a point where I thought our booking was not real and almost cancelled. I’m putting this in here to give you some pierce of mind if you have a similar experience. Checkout at the apartment is 11 am. Late checkout is not allowed and if it was, you would not know less than 24 hours before you leave. This is unfortunate. If given more time for communication we could have booked an extra day if given the option. Again it is something that the owner can easily remedy by better communication with renters. However there are showers in the washrooms at the pool in the complex that can be used pre-flight.
The lock box in the apartment does not work. It is pretty safe and I didn’t feel we needed it. The bathroom is large with the toilet and shower separate from the vanity and washer/ dryer. It is a bit outdated but functional.
Would I recommend booking this apartment? Yes. It is good value for money in a well kept complex.
Very clean studio with kitchen
Very private no parking bill was plus . Ac included plus. End unit great. Renovations upstairs was noisy 2 nights
After 7pm to 10pm should be done by now. The unit very nice and easy to get from parking and in town would stay again. Owner very good at emails and instructions
Unit 501 Clean and Comfortable apartment.
Unit 501 at Royal Sea Cliff, Kona was an excellent place to stay. Let's start off with the room. Very clean and quite spacious with all the conveniences you'll need from a vacation rental. The only drawback being unsecured wifi, even when logging in with supplied credentials. Invest in a VPN or try a free VPN app for security. There is a computer on site, but we did not try that. Though not directly associated with the Wyndam resort, we had full access to all the amenities. Fresh Kona coffee every morning, two pools, fun activities. We were able to watch the sunset each night with a short walk to the balcony. Secure covered parking was right below the apartment most days--many 1st come1st serve spots available. A shuttle (for a fee) will stop right at the resort so travel around town is easy, but it's a only a mile or so walk to the village or the beach. Many of the area tours will also pick up/drop off at the resort. An Expedia Concierge is onsite to help with booking, and and an Island Orientation breakfast is available a couple morning a week.
Any day in Kona is a great day! The Royal Sea Cliff is nice and well manicured Complex
This studio is suitable but somewhat dated. Certainly not for 3 guests. The bathroom gets 2 stars; sugar ant infested, the tub and shower is old and water has been leaking behind the tiles for some time. The faucet is ready to break off and a hole exists surrounding it. The flourescent ballast needs replacing as it fails to light the bulbs. The bar and sink on lanai not functioning. The property needs fresh paint. Positives are a new washer/dryer works great and the kitchen is set up well.
Conveniently located, quiet and comfortable.
Parking was close to room and very convenient, room was clean, comfortable and reasonably appointed. Ocean view and distance is disappointing but the private lanai was nice. Area is quiet at night and feels safe. Would definitely look to stay here again.
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.

About Tom Kahl
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.
Tom Kahl purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Tom Kahl chose Kailua-Kona
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.
