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.
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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
