About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

This condo is part of a small cluster of about 70 units. The grounds are perfectly maintained, and include a pool/hot tub/grills. The condo overlooks SeaMountain Golf Course, there are no restrictions on who can play the course. About a 5-10 minute walk lies the Punaluu Black Sand Beach, which is a nesting ground for the Green Sea Turtle. Every day it is almost guaranteed to see one or more sunning themselves on the sand. The Volcanoes National Park is a quick 30 minute drive up the road.

The condo itself has just been completely renovated, with new appliances, stairs, bedroom, flooring, etc.

Clean and quiet community

  • 4 of 5

Condo is well stocked, very near Punaluu beach (a very cool black sand beach -- we got up close and personal time with two sea turtles in a tide pool), nice pool on site, and best of all the owner (Sam) was always helpful and in contact throughout our stay to answer any questions. We arrived right after Tropical Storm Darby was leaving. She took with her the tradewinds. It made the condo a bit steamy, as there is no air conditioning. Two fans kept the air moving and sleeping with the doors open made for a good night's sleep. If you like a place off the beaten path that's quiet yet close to the ocean, I highly recommend this rental.

Check out the Ka'u coffee plantation just down the road. Great coffee and delicious Macadamia nut treats.

Wonderful, clean and quiet condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 12th time to Sea Mountain. Each time we stay at a different condo and Sam's condo was by far the most modern, clean and quiet condo of any we have stayed at in Sea Mountain.

We loved waking up to the birds singing every morning!

We fell in love with Punalu'u 13 years ago and come back every year to enjoy the peace and quiet - and people! - of "the country".

If you are looking for an action-packed vacation full of nightlife and gobs of people, this isn't the area for you - but if you are looking for a nice, clean, well-maintained condo and complex - full of history, wonderful people that love their culture, a non-crowded pool overlooking the ocean, a blacksand beach within walking distance - and the peace that comes from spending time in a place filled with the ALOHA spirit, then this condo is definitely for you!

Sam was always responsive and easy to work with and was kind enough to answer all of my emails and vacation date change-of-plans.

Highly recommend. We will definitely stay here the next time we are on the Big Island. Thanks, Sam!

Beautiful place and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very nice. Modern updates. Owner was so easy to work with and very quick with communication! If you are looking for a relaxing getaway equal distance to hilo and kona and very close to the volcano then I would highly recommend this unit! Right next to the black sand beach and sits right on a golf course with ocean views. We really enjoyed our stay!

Great Spot

  • 4 of 5

Great spot midway between the green sand beach and volcano. Not much around the area, but the unit and complex are great

clean, quiet, friendly, relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed during New Year's, we have family in the area but needed more space and this was perfect! The condo is clean, nicely decorated, incredibly well stocked with everything you would need away from home. This is a huge plus in Ka'u being that you are miles away from grocery stores, Walmart, etc....I would advise to bring your groceries before you go, but the condo had towels, a fully stocked kitchen, enough bedding for our family of 4, even some toiletries (shower gel etc...)

The condo has a small pool and hot tub which we enjoyed, and the black sand beach is very close. There are even beach towels and boogie boards in the unit, (use caution though using the boards at the beach as the current can be dangerous at Punalu'u)

The only reason I gave a 4-star rating is that I would say that the unit itself is better for couples or maybe a family of 3 at the most, it is a little small for a family of 4....also the unit has stairs which was stressful with my 2-year old so if you have an adventurous toddler possibly consider another place, also, the condo is VERY quiet and relaxing and my kids are loud, so the place is best for couples or families that are quiet; mine isn't and I was constantly telling my kids to be quiet as to not disturb others.

The owner responded to emails quickly, the owners parents live on property and they were very accommodating and friendly, also, the staff there is incredibly friendly and helpful as well.
