This first floor (no steps) unit is one of the finest in the Sea Village complex. It is located in Building Number 4, the oceanfront building. You can see the ocean from the living room and kitchen. Sit on your own private oceanfront lanai and view the beautiful coast of Kona and Kailua Village, watch the dolphins and whales frolic in the ocean and witness the gorgeous Kona sunsets. One guest says it all - From the lanai, we saw spinner dolphins, yellow tang, black crab, red crabs, fish jumping from tidepools to the ocean, lots of birds and a shark - beautiful sunsets. This past winter season, guests witnessed a humpback whale giving birth off the rocks in front of the building.
This updated unit (new kitchen, shower, hurricane lanai doors/windows, tile and carpet) is beautifully and tastefully decorated and has everything you need to enjoy a wonderful vacation in paradise.
My wife and I stayed at this unit now 4 years in a row. We love Sea Village and especially this condo. The views are spectacular. We see whales and dolphins every year right off the lanai. You can't find a better place to watch the sunset. The way the lanai is designed gives you quite a bit of privacy. Sea Village is a well maintained complex. We stayed at several other condos at Sea village before but like this one the best, especially the nice kitchen layout. The owners just installed new carpet in the bedrooms and the living room, the rest of the unit is tiled. We already booked for next year.
Stayed there in the fall of 2010. Pros: it was clean, comfortable/modern furniture, appliances & décor, good value for the price, good location, and I loved the large walk-in shower in the main bathroom. Not shown in pictures was the 2nd bedroom, which has a queen and ceiling fan - I was comfortable. Also, as mentioned in the description, we saw from our lanai every one of those things - dolphins, jumping fish, etc. That was pretty cool :-) The owner & property manager were very nice and prompt in communications.
Cons: no screen door (which all the other units had), no curtains in bedrooms to block morning sun (although pictured in master), and the HE w/d a bit noisy.
I would recommend this condo -- especially if they address the screen door & curtains issues.
