Hale Pikake Nalu (OceanWave Peacock House) is our vacation home located in Sea Village, an oceanfront complex. While there are many complexes that are listed as oceanfront, not all condos within those complexes are truly oceanfront. OUR condo is!
Sea Village is a small 4 building oceanfront complex, with great landscaping, a marvelous heated pool and hot tub, a grassy picnic area with multiple gas grills, and plenty of parking. This is a strictly non-smoking complex with enforced quiet hours 10pm to 8am.
Our unit is in building 4, closest to the ocean, farthest from the road, and exceptionally quiet. Hale Pikake Nalu is on the first floor (no stairs to climb with suitcases and groceries). Nalu is the Hawaiian word meaning ocean wave that breaks on shore. And the waves do literally break on the rocks right off the balcony. The neatest thing--watching the sunset. And did I say view? When you are sitting in the living room you feel as though you are on a cruise ship--all you see is the ever-changing sea. Speaking of sea, the beautiful aqua-marine colors of the ocean were the inspiration behind the peacock (pikake) colors in the condo as well as the plumage of the Big Island peacock.
Hale details-- brand new king size pillow top bed, luxury hotel linens, new bamboo flooring bedroom and living room, tiled kitchen and bath, new sofa and chairs, new Samsung TV with 50 cable channels, free wifi. There is a great ocean breeze--sleeping is the best with the bedroom window open to draw the breeze and sound of the waves from the open patio door though the hale into the bedroom-- no need for a noise machine! There are good ceiling fans throughout the house and balcony. Little warm in the late afternoon with the western exposure? No worries as we have one of the few units in the complex with an air conditioner for those few hours before sunset. Although it is not designed to 'refrigerate' the entire condo, it does provide a comfortable 74-degree environment.
This is our vacation home, and it is our pleasure to share it with you.

Everyone needs a vacation home on the ocean, right? Sea Village is a great complex. The common areas are beautiful and well kept. Hale Pikake is right on the ocean, the closest building to the ocean and far from the hustle and bustle of Ali'i Dr. All you hear are the waves!
Several times a week, a cruise ship anchors just offshore. We often sit on the balcony with glasses of iced tea and try to think of one reason why we would rather be on the ship--a nicely appointed stateroom is just inside, the heated uncrowded pool is steps away, the Green Flash coffee shop and Aloha Nail shop are at the front gate, great restaurants and shops are just up the street, the great view is continuous, ocean activities just steps away--still can't think of any reason to be on a ship, can you?
We very much enjoyed this clean, tastefully furnished condo. Location was great and the Green Flash Coffe shop was great too. It was a short walk to town and we did it often.
Wold for sure book it again should we return to Kona. We already miss the sound of the ocean surf!!!
As advertised. Water, waves, whales and dolphins. Clean, comfortable, modern. Quiet condo yet less than 1 mile from main town and touristy places on Kona coast. If this place is in your price range, your research is done, book it Dano!
We arrived late at night but the directions and setup for getting there and settled were very easy. We were immediately taken by the proximity of the ocean surf and slept wonderfully listeng to its relaxing sound. The condo itself was perfect. Had everthing we needed and the location was perfect.
The condo was very very clean, and the view was the best around. The owner was more than fair. Our only complaint was that the 2 condos on each side was under major construction, the noise from 8 am to 5, was unbearable. The weekend was great except for all the construction material from other condos, in the parking lot.. We would love to stay in the condo again, when all the construction is over. The condo itself and owners get an excellent star rating. We love the Sea Village, and have stayed there for about 15 years once a year.
The condo was immaculate and the view from the lanai was spectacular. We particularly enjoyed sleeping with the lanai door and windows open so we could fall asleep to the sound of waves.
This was a great location. It was ideally situated for trips up and down the west coast of the Big Island so we could snorkel Honaunau one day and sit on a white sand beach up at Hapuna the next.
The kitchen was well equipped and the appliances and utensils were in good repair and clean. There are nearby grocery stores (Costco, Walmart, Safeway) and a farmer's market with fresh fruit, so you can eat in as much as you'd like.
The pool at the condo is a nice place to relax. It is comfortable and well maintained.
Overall this was our favorite trip to the Big Island (we have visited 5 times!). We would definitely stay here again.
Hale Pikake Nalu is an absolute oceanfront condo--any closer and you would need lifeboat drills! Waves crash on the rocks, bright yellow fish swim right below you, dolphins put on daily performances, and winter whale watching is supreme. We are a short walk to the shops and restaurants, but oh so quiet and away from all road noise!
