About the property

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

Great location, great value

  • 4 of 5

The location was very close to downtown Kona, shopping, restaurants, etc. It was a great value. Not a direct ocean view but very nice. The pool is awesome. The condo was spacious, clean, nicely decorated. It was very relaxing, quiet area.

Owner's Response: Aloha To my nice Guest, Thank you for the nice review. I appreciate that Kent mentioned several times to me, how well he liked the my nice apartment; for it's convenient location to town and parking, and how spacious it was, and how well equipped and comfortable it was. My Apartment is a direct Ocean View and it Faces the Ocean and I even have verified photos of the Ocean view, that I would be pleased to send to any guest who would ask. I believe he meant that it is not Ocean Front View (which means there is nothing at all in front of you). You can get a few of those, yet the least expensive that I see today would be more than a Thousand Dollars more for his stay. Kent again thanks for your nice emails and you are welcome to come back at anytime and at my best rates. Sincerely, Tom Kahl KonaRents

Spacious Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Lots of space, well equipped, and convenient parking. The use of a small ice chest, beach towels, and beach chairs came in real handy visiting the various beaches around the island.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this condo from Jan 21st to Jan 28th. Tom was more than helpful anytime I contacted him. The condo was clean. Very large complex with two pools and a hot tub. Close to downtown Kona.

I have to comment one more time that Tom was great. My family and I highly recommend staying here. I went with my parents (both 60+) and my fiancé (29 yrs)

Owner's Response: Aloha to my nice guests Alissa and here family. I was pleased that she mentioned to me, how well stocked with necessities, cooking and baking items, and that is was more than large enough for there family of 4. (It is the largest one bedroom in the complex). And importantly that it is very clean. Alissa and her family are most welcome back at any time, for they will always have a place where they belong.

Great vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I did a two week plus stay at the Royal Sea Cliff in Tom's unit back in October and November. in brief, our time could not have been more enjoyable.

The resort itself is outstanding. The property is beautifully maintained wherever one walks. At the end of the day we looked forward to a daily swim in the pool which overlooks the waves crashing against the volcanic rocks that make up the shoreline. It is an easy walk into Kona should one so desire in order to eat at one of the numerous restaurants located there. (Car rental, however, is essential to explore all that the Big Island has to offer) Should one desire to stay in and prepare a meal, there is a Costco warehouse nearby where locals and tourists all gravitate towards.

As for our accommodation itself, my wife and I have nothing but praise for the unit that we stayed in. When we entered the unit, our first observation was that everything was immaculate. I had spoken to Tom prior to our stay and he indicated that he was upgrading some of the appliances just before our arrival. Everything we needed was provided-it was our home away from home. During our stay, the cable company was doing an upgrade of the WiFi services that they provided.

In summary, my wife and I agreed that we could not have had a more pleasurable vacation.
