Our condo has been completely re-done. We have completely remodeled the kitchen and both baths, adding new cabinets, granite countertops with under mount sinks and new fixtures. In April of 2013 we put in contemporary bedroom furniture, repainted the entire condo, and installed a new front load washer and dryer. We now have tile floors in the entire unit, including the lanai. We added ceiling fans to both bedrooms and the living area, added new light fixtures, and put in new ceiling texture. This is a total remodel - not a cosmetic band aid!
Kent's Kona Condo is a truly ocean front vacation experience. To SWIM with the DOLPHINS all you have to do is grab your gear and head for shore. As the boats come in to drop their swimmers you will be able to simply jump into the water, swim a few yards and enjoy a pod of 20 or do dolphins that cruise through Kailua Bay each morning. We even have 3 sets of snorkel gear you can use! Now use the $130 per person you just saved to grab a cold one and watch the sunset right from the private lanai!
The views from the lanai offer an unbelievable panorama of those famous Kona sunsets as you watch the lights of Kailua-Kona twinkling across Kailua Bay each evening.
From the lanai you can enjoy breakfast with the sunrise or a Mai Tai with the sunset without having the distractions of seeing or hearing any of your neighbors - a truly unique condo experience!

Our unit is professionally managed by a fantastic group! They have been in business for over 34 years and are available 24/7 to assist you with any problems that may arise. They can also assist you in finding airfare, car rentals and any activities you wish to do while on island.
We are both looking forward to being able to retire and move to the Big Island. We both love to snorkel, bike, and hike so this is a perfect location to spend our winters. The problem with that is - we aren't old enough to retire yet! We have the ideal place for when we get to that stage of our lives.
Owner / Property Manager purchased this in 2008
We chose Kona for many reasons; number one being the predictable weather. Nothing like booking a vacation to another part of Hawaii and having to deal with rain. This is rarely the case in Kona!
Our unit in Sea Village is perfectly located to maximize the 180 degree views of the bay and open ocean, while having no road noise or noise from the pool. Just the waves washing up on the rocks below the lanai.
We had a wonderful time staying at the Sea Village. The views were spectacular!!! The condo was really nicely furnished and we enjoyed our stay very much. The process of "booking the condo" was really easy and no problems whatsoever.
This condo is at a great location and had a fantastic view!!! I was very disappointed to get there and find out that there was no access to the ocean below though, as all of the gates were locked and double locked with a padlock!! I called the office and they said they would be taking the padlock off but then never did. We didn't see any dolphins til the 3rd day there and were starting to get discouraged! The beautiful views made up for it!
I would not plan on having 6 people stay there unless part of the group are children because the hideabed is starting to come apart and was very uncomfortable for even 1 adult. We were having issues with one of the toilets not flushing as well. The remodel is great, but we wondered why the shower and bath tub were not upgraded as well. Also plan on lots of noise near the bedrooms as it is located right near the swimming pool of the adjacent property!! Morning and night there are always noisy people outside the windows and with no air conditioning you must have them open to cool things off.
Overall we enjoyed our stay despite the issues, but want others to have some warning of them. It is expensive so they deserve to know.
This place was fantastic. Y'know how sometimes photos are taken with a telephoto lens to create the feeling that the property is ON the water when really you can only SEE the water? This is truly ON THE WATER! It's on the third floor but the surf was up and sometimes the windows were sprayed. We ate breakfast on the lanai and watched the dolphins swim by most mornings.
The location is perfect. The unit is on the corner furthest from Ali'i Drive so the only noise is the crashing surf below. It's close enough to Kona to walk (about 15-20 minutes to the city center). Beautiful, well-kept gardens and pool.
The condo was clean and the beds were comfortable. We appreciated borrowing the 3+ sets of snorkeling equipment, coolers and beach chairs. We stayed busy every day with snorkeling, boogey-boarding, volcano hiking, waterfall viewing and manta snorkeling, but we tried to get back every evening for sunset from the lanai. This was the perfect base for all our adventures.
We will never forget our fabulous trip to the Big Island.
Stayed at Sea Villlage during February and couldn't be happier. The condo was as advertised. Simply great. My wife and I had a wonderful time. The layout is good, the appliances new and the wi-fi problem free.
The view from the lanai was awesome and the sounds of the ocean hitting the sea wall soothing.
We could walk to the resort town and when we didn't, go to the pool or hot tub on site. The staff was great as were the other residents.
This condo is a great value.
Looking foward to going again.
Thank You !
The condo was AMAZING! Beautiful upgrades and obvious remodel. We sat right over the ocean, we're within walking distance to downtown Kona and there was a fabulous coffee stand at the condo entrance. In fact, we were so impressed we'd consider purchasing.
Four of us stayed at this condo in Feb 2012 and had an amazing time. The condo is spotless with mostly new amenities. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and BBQ. The beds were comfortable and the lanai has a view second to none. We saw spinner dolphins every morning. The location of this condo made it easy for us to walk into Kona and enjoy drinks and dinner. We drove to some amazing beaches and took full advantage of the farmers market. We had a great time in the common area barbecuing with the other guests. Wish we could go back and stay for a month! If you are considering booking this rental, do it! You won't be disappointed.
Over a year ago, we spent a fabulous week at this condo and then recommended it to friends, who later vacationed there. The view was incredible! We spent hours on the balcony enjoying God's creation--the ocean, sunsets, and spinner dolphins. The condo is close to snorkeling beaches, shopping, and restaurants. We appreciated being able to eat most meals in and barbecue by the pool. There was no wait at the tennis courts, and racquets are provided. We hope to return!
Kailua-Kona town is within walking distance, as are a couple of beaches off Alii Drive. Some of the best snorkeling in the area is right in front of Sea Village! Scuba/snorkeling opportunities are available from many local shops. We love swimming with the dolphins that come to Kailua Bay every morning. Free - just jump in!
