About Linda Dreher

We are two lovely people from So Cal who met in junior high, stayed friends through high school, and married 30 years later. We've dreamed of moving to Kona, and knew this was the place for us when we spent only 10 minutes at the DMV and got our Hawaii licences. Literally just 10 minutes! Day-by-day the dream of being full-time Kama'ainas is becoming a reality. We own a few of properties in the Kona area, waiting for the day we can become permanent residents.

Linda Dreher purchased this condo in 2013

Why Linda Dreher chose Kona Coast

Two words: the view. You will not find a more beautiful 1 bedroom condo on the water in all of kona. It's right off ali'i drive and close to downtown kona. Also, there's no stairs in or out of the unit. Great for seniors or families with small children.

What makes this condo unique

Gorgeous complex with everything you need for a traquil, relaxing vacation. The pool/jacuzzi area with lovely where you can meet travelers like yourself who make Sea Village an annual stay. Cook every meal in our well-appointed kitchen, or grill at the complex BBQs. Coffee house steps away for your convenience every morning.

Personal experience of the accomodations

Accommodations O.K. Furniture could stand to be upgraded in near future. I was a little disappointed not to find a can opener, but no big deal. Owner very honest.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. It is unfortunate you did not enjoy staying at our unit as mouch as others have, but considering that this unit was furnished in 2013 for the first time we are somewhat confused by your brief description. This includes furniture, television and other electronis equipment that purchased for the first time for this condo. We hope in the future you find a unit more to you liking, but hope others will read the majority of our reviews and see that your feelings are not the norm for our renters.

A Beautiful Slice of Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this gorgeous oceanfront condo during our 9-night trip to Kona. My husband and I agreed unanimously that for the price this practically oceanfront condo simply cannot be beat! We enjoyed coffee, tea, meals, and happy hour on the lanai every day. To have the ocean in your "backyard" is truly amazing! The condo itself was very comfortable with every amenity you can possibly think of - guide books, sunscreen, books, DVDs, binoculars, plenty of utensils, coffee cups, travel mugs, blender, pots, pans, etc. We cooked in nearly every day - the kitchen is great, so well supplied! The condo is also equipped with ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom along with a powerful floor fan, which we used every night. The bed is super comfy - you may not want to leave it!

Just a few tips - the bedroom is near the front door with very little opportunity for natural breezes so the fans were an absolute must for us, especially since we're not used to humidity. Also, a staircase leading up to the top floors happens to be situated right outside the bedroom. We learned fairly quickly one evening that folks walking up the stairs can see right into the bedroom (and actually see you in bed) if they cared enough to stare thanks to the angle of the two bedroom windows (which we kept open because it was hot) and mirrored closet doors. This was a little awkward but we never had any issues. Just be prepared to either close the one window at night or keep both windows open and take your chances! Also, each building is equipped with exterior lighting which happens to be situated right near the bedroom windows. The windows don't have any interior blinds or drapes so the bedroom is lit with a soft, orange glow all night. A nighttime eye mask is the perfect solution if you want total darkness - just be prepared to bring one! We had an absolutely wonderful stay here - the condo is a short drive to restaurants and shops along Ali'i Drive to the north. It's a 15 minute drive to Keauhou Bay to the south, which is a meeting spot for Sea Quest and Fairwinds snorkel tours. The grounds were quiet, beautifully landscaped, and well kept. We spent a lot of time at the pool and jacuzzi chatting with fellow guests - it was great! Linda (the owner) was a breeze to work with - so helpful!! We couldn't have asked for a better stay and I do hope we get the pleasure of returning to Sea Village! Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your sweet review. We love the location of this unit and the fact there is a coffee place right on site. So nice to have a place to walk to if you want to have breakfast or lunch outside. Also great is the barbecue area. We have grilled fish and steaks there many times, and there's always one available if you're ready to grill. The unit is in a perfect spot between downtown Kona and Keauhou, so there's plenty of place for a meal, and the remodeled KTA Supermarket at the Keaukou Shopping Center has great local produce and meats/fish. Their poke bar and sushi are excellent. Great stuff to bring back to the lanai and have a sunset meal. Thank you again for your thoughts, and we hope you remember your experience when you return to Kona!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our visit to Kona and Linda's condo. It is very centrally located, a good home base for traveling north or south. The condo complex was very well kept and very quiet, and there is a great coffee shop at the top of the driveway.

The condo was very clean and inviting. The bed and bathroom were like a hotel-- soft down mattress topper, soft white sheets and towels. Granite shower with great hot water and water pressure.

The kitchen was clean and had everything we needed, tho we didnt cook much. There are also grills in the courtyard.

The best part, of course, was the incredible view from the lanai ( porch). We were so close to the water and had an incredible view of the water and sunsets (!) --a great spot to start and end the day!

Linda was very available for questions. We definitely recommend this!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. That lanai is really what everyone talks about, and I know from our own experience it does have a killer view. Lately there have been so many sightings of dolphins we feel like the bay in front has become a regular spot for the spinners. Also thank you for your suggestions for additions to the unit. Come back soon. We look forward to hearing from you.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This flat is very well kept, spacious and appointed with everything one may need whether staying inside or going to the beach. The lanai is large and affords wonderful northwestern ocean views. The sun never directly shines onto the lanai, which keeps it cool, but one can still enjoy unobstructed view of magnificent sunsets. The apartment complex is also very well maintained with manicured green spaces and clean common areas. The location is conveniently close to the shops and restaurants in Kona, as well as to the local beaches assuming one has a car. Walmart and Safeway are also are short drive away.

Owner's Response: We are always so pleased to see our guests enjoy staying at our property. The views from the lanai have been spectacular this year, and we hope you were able to see the dolphins as they seem to be showing up every day lately. Thank you for your kind words, and we look forward to your return to our little slice of paradise.

Wonderful location. We were there for 9 days and would definately stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We walked to Kailua our first morning and bought fresh fruits and vegetables at the Village Farmers' Market. Watched dolphins off the lanai several mornings. The lanai is in the shade morning and afternoon so is very comfortable. Miller's Surf and Sport rented great snorkeling gear (very clear prescription goggles...located about a mile south of the condo). Our favorite beach for snorkeling was Kahalu'u - a few miles south of the condo. Shallow with an amazing variety of fish - protected by an outer reef so is great for families. We went snorkeling in the morning, returned to the condo for lunch and went out exploring again. Comfy bed, hot showers, quiet at night, memorable meals on the lanai.

Owner's Response: My goodness. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. So many times we have seen the dolphins, so it's great you got to experience them as well. We love it when renters get the full island experience. Hope you will think of us next time you come to Kona! Tom and Linda

A great choice!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks in Kona and were so happy with our choice of this condo. First, the location was perfect. Far enough away from the downtown souvenir and tee shirt shops but close enough that we could walk there when we wanted. Less than a 10 minute walk up the road is Honl Beach where every morning and evening the locals are bodyboarding and surfing. The lanai (Hawaiian for patio) was the absolute best place on the island for breakfast and dinner! Fruit from the farmers market for breakfast (spinner dolphins often showed up for us) and fish (OMG, the local poke!) for dinner. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a coffee maker and grinder (grab a bag of Kona beans) and a rice cooker. Brown rice, local veggies and local fish... oh yeah! We brought back hundreds of pictures from our vacation and most were of sunsets from the lanai. Every one is different and every one is spectacular! Linda, the owner, was great. She was quick to answer all our questions, very professional and easy to work with. She sent us an 8 page "things to do and see" document with recommendations for everything from her favorite beaches and restaurants to day trips and things to skip. That and the guidebook that's on the coffee table went everywhere with us! It's a Big Island, don't miss anything...just be back on the lanai in time for the sunset.

Owner's Response: What is a lways the best part of getting a review is to hear that our guests loved their vacation. I am so happy you got to see the sinner dolphins off the lanai, and that you had the chance to hit the farmers markets, seek out the poke and enjoy all the local cuisine while relaxing and watching the ocean at the condo. Thank you for your lovely review, and we hope you can return to Kona soon. Mahalo...
