About the property

Book 4 nights or more in Sept or Oct & receive 10% off the nightly rate!

We invite you to be our guest at Sea Mountain #24. Here you will find a beautiful spot on the south shore located conveniently midway between Hilo and Kona. Colony One makes a great 'base camp' for your Big Island adventures. Located away from the crowds, traffic and vog of the Kona coast, Punaluu is a hidden gem with great weather all year round.

Our spacious, comfortable one-bedroom condo will give you lots of room to spread out. The bedroom & bathroom are on the 1st level and the living room, full-size kitchen with new appliances, dining area and lanai are on the 2nd level. This arrangement allows for a quiet, private sleeping area and a bright, airy living room & kitchen with a lovely view from the 2nd floor lanai.

Consider our fully equipped condo your home away from home. The bedroom is downstairs with a king size bed, ceiling fan and even has it's own turtle. The living room is upstairs & has a large wooden vaulted ceiling w/fan. The queen size sofa bed comfortably sleeps two. The fully equipped kitchen (with new stove, sink & counter tops) has everything you need to create easy & tasty meals (with recipe books on grilling & cocktails - blender included of course), and coffee grinder & maker (to enjoy your delicious Kona & Kau coffee). The dining room seats four and the lanai has a table with two chairs as well as two chaise lounges. All have views of the ocean. We also have games and a DVD/VCR player with a video library for your viewing enjoyment.

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with the charm of old Hawaii but still want to be within easy reach of all the activities and adventure the Big Island has to offer, you'll find it here! You will also get a document telling you of all the places/activities/restaurants etc that we have grown to know & love. As an ex-tour guide, I take a lot of time making sure this is up-to-date so you don't miss out on any of the incredible things the Big Island has to offer.

Here is what some of our guests are saying about #24:

#24 exceeded expectations. It was a perfect place for a quiet get away. Sue and Peter's attention to detail made it all the more comfortable and all of the holiday accessories needed were there. We would love to return.

Sue was a great communicator and sent us all the information in an easily digestible manner. Her place was a wonderful getaway with a beautiful view of the ocean over the golf course as shown in the pictures. She also provided great information about visiting the different sights on the island as well as books/resources that we were able to use. Would highly recommend her place if you're looking to "get away from it all"!

My brother enjoyed #24 in its entirety (clean, spacious, stylish, locale, well stocked.) Eileen M LA, CA Mar '14

We had a FANTASTIC time at your home! - haven't yet stopped looking at our holiday pictures.

This was the first time we have rented a condo in this manner, and I have to said everything from searching the internet site, to communicating with you via email, to paying via paypal, and finding your home so complete, cozy, inviting inside and out made our holiday great. Your home was exactly as the internet pictures presented it to be and your location in the complex was spectacular - morning coffee on the balcony, watching the ocean waves and palm trees sway, and listening to the numerous birds was paradise. We thought we received excellent value for money spent. The layout of your home was very comfortable and homey. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many extras - completely stocked kitchen and bathroom, books and maps to help us plan our daily adventures and books and movies to relax with - so thoughtful and kind of you. Loved the hawaii/ turtle decor. What we like most about our stay was your home - it was the perfect location, both on the island and in the colony complex. Private, secluded but close to a variety of adventures in the Volcano Park, eastern tip of the island and south point area. We truly had a wonderful time in Hawaii and your home was the focal point to allow us to enjoy each day so thoroughly. Memories from our time there will be everlasting, always heart-warming and I thank you for sharing your home so graciously.

Connie & Al, Canada - Mar 09

The process of renting your unit was extremely easy and it was great value. The prior to arrival email provided us with the right amount of detail and directions to shopping and then on the unit. We enjoyed the book you put together about the sites on the island and used it to make decisions about what to see. The unit was exactly as described and shown on the website, inside and out. The view was wonderful and the complex is very quiet and relaxing.

Rick & Carol, San Diego - Jun 07

We had a great time and #24 greatly added to our enjoyment! The location was quiet and isolated...we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again!!

Paul, San Lorenzo, CA - April 07

Just wanted to say thanks for use of your condo, it was beautiful!! Really nice interior and the view was great. I have stayed at other units there and yours was by far the nicest!! Will definitely contact you next time I go over.

Why The Owner chose Ka'u District

We both fell in love with the Big Island a few years ago. No matter how many times we go, there is always more to see & do. We chose this condo primarily for its location. Close to Volcano National Park & only an hour away from Hilo, our favorite city on the Big Island. The black sand beach is a 10-minute walk & its nice to visit it early before all the tour buses get there. That is a great time to see the turtles resting on the beach. We love that the complex is fairly secluded and quiet, a rare thing in todays busy world. The beautiful and peaceful setting instantly relaxes us. The view from our lanai is one of our favorite spots to spend time reading/eating/relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

Colony One/Sea Mountain is a unique place. The setting & location are wonderful & unusual. The complex is well maintained & small enough to stay friendly. People say hello to each other as they walk past & lots of conversations are started while lounging in the pool/hot tub area. Since buying our unit, we usually go twice a year fixing it up & making it as comfortable as possible for our guests. Being a ex-tour guide, I have put together a binder of things to do while visiting the Big Island, including favorite beaches, restaurants, hikes & hidden treasures. We invite you to be our guest at #24.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the view from the lanai. It was beautiful it wake up and have coffee there and watch the waves roll in. Everyone in the complex was so welcoming and sweet. We wish we could have stayed longer. I have already handed out a few of the business cards to some friends and family members. We can't wait to come back!

Awesome Place - Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo! It has beautiful high beam wooden ceilings and a great deck, with an amazing view! We liked the high stools and table on the deck so much we contacted Sue to ask where she got it!! The place was clean, well-stocked, and cozy. The Big Island is amazing. Our highlights were getting incredible close-up photos of a Short Eared Owl on a post, two whales breaching, and seeing a 45-foot splashing lava flow at night on the Volcano! Sue was super helpful and reached out to us several times. Thank you, we would love to come again!
