Kailua-Kona Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Full Kitchen A/C Parking Wi-Fi Sleeps 4 Spacious 1000 S.F. Ocean View

Royal Sea Cliff Resort, Kailua Kona, Hawaii

An architectural masterpiece that cascades down from an ancient lava-flow bluff to a wide swath of the best pristine oceanfront in Hawaii. Ocean views of local fisherman, cruise ships, whales and dolphins, surfers, and parasailing. With over 7 tropical acres, your apartment is an oasis of privacy and peacefulness.

Yet only a mile to Kona

Many love the easy and level stroll, run or bike to the historic center of Kona. Hint: try the 2 dollar town “trolley”. Where the iconic early stone church and the queens palace stand. And plenty of good shopping, restaurants, bars, live entertainment and a lively farmers and crafts market in the center of town. You are close to Hawaii’s famous gold coast, Kohala with fashionable mall shopping and acres of golf courses.

Home away from home (and free wireless)

Your spacious (largest one) One Bedroom apartment is a private end unit with central air condition, free wi-fi, free phone calls to anywhere in the U.S.and gated indoor parking. It’s just been refurbished and with its 9’ plus high ceilings and large lanai (porch) it feels quite spacious. A welcome kit of soaps and paper products makes you first days very convenient.

A full-size kitchen and dining bar is stocked with appliances and utensils. A large refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and stove with a large oven. The full length closet and dressing area has a convenient washer/dryer and a separate vanity area. The full-sized bathtub/shower has it's own private room. The apartment is wheel-chair accessible.

You’ll certainly be spending a lot of time on the lanai, with its tropical garden and horizon ocean views. There is a wet bar with sink to rinse your sandy swimwear and sandals off. And a nice patio set with four chairs for refreshing dining. Along with a couple of nice lounge chairs.

Royal Sea Cliff Resort amenities

The resort is constantly being refreshed and maintained, it feels so tropical. You can walk the central gardens with palms, mangoes, and a stream with waterfalls and pools along your way. There are beautiful vantage points over the gardens. As you reach the ocean, there are two large swimming pools directly on the ocean front. Both have dressing room facilities, and new in-ground jetted spa, sauna, and a cabana for covered dining and with your choice of gorgeous fresh water or salt water large swimming pools.

There are 2 professional BBQ areas, ping pong table, an exclusive tennis court, plus a game room. Also a computer with a printer for free.

Free bonus

included are four free weekly activities. Monday afternoon, there is live entertainment. Tuesday is a live performance and free local foods and drinks. Thursday is movie night with free snacks and friday morning is free lei making, breakfast treats and live entertainment

cultural and island information seminars take place mornings near the front lobby.

What! In one of the best resorts on the island full of amenities and walking distance to kona, on a wide pristine coast.

It’s the best pricing in the complex. Guaranteed;

*I guarantee that my apartments are the lowest price in Royal Sea Cliff Resort (RSC) when you reserve. If you find a lower price at another RSC unit I will match that price, if you provide the details about the unit and it still is available within 3 days of your reservation. And it has the same times/conditions as my apartment

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 2013

Why Tom Kahl chose Kona Coast

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.

Loved our vacation! Tom is amazing and very easy to plan/work with.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, convenient to the shopping and airport, but tucked away enough to enjoy the peace and the tranquility of the ocean...and the view - just breathtaking. Thank you, Tom!

Clean, comfortable, convenient, & welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 531. The unit was exactly as described in the listing. Great size, clean, stocked with everything we needed (towels, pillows, blankets, even a cooler). We were quite comfortable. The kitchen had enough equipment to cover basic meal preparations which made me quite happy! The washer and dryer in the unit were quite convenient. (brought home clean clothes!)

The balcony is peaceful and spacious. While it's not an ocean-front room, the view from the balcony is serene, and tropical. You can see the ocean in the distance, and if you're lucky some of the local small birds will come visit while you sip your cocktail or coffee.

Tom's the perfect host. From his instructions of how to get to the property from the airport, to helpfully providing locations of grocery stores, and just general tips for what to do on the island. He was completely accessible & never too busy to answer questions.

I will be back to Kona. We hope Tom's unit will be available!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a great location and at a very nice facility. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, the quiet, peaceful setting, the ocean (not a swim beach) and the tennis court (free almost any time - which was great). Tom was very kind, helpful, easy to work with and always got back to us PRONTO if we had any questions. The unit was clean and neat with everything we needed. We would recommend this condo to anyone. The local trolley also stops outside the resort several times a day which is convenient.

Smelled musty and dark. Lighting sucked was still dark. Washer not working properly upon arrival .

  • 2 of 5

Owner very seamed very nice. I had water issues in bathroom. Could use an updating. Needs top to bottom cleaning. Light bulbs were covered with dust and microwave dirty inside. Glad my children got a room from at same place with working washer and brighter. Because my condo was a place to sleep and shower. And microwave water for my coffee.

Nice Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at this condo.....wish it had been longer, and hope to visit again in the future!! The condo was clean, spacious, nicely furnished and "relatively" accommodating for my husband who is in a wheel chair (a little tight in the bathroom area, but do-able). The owner was easy to talk to and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. We enjoyed the amenities the Royal Sea Cliff provides (and it is wheelchair accessible in all areas), and the two pools and hot tub, and BBQ areas are wonderful.
