Escape the stresses of your daily life and step back in time to "Old Hawaii" where the world-famous Punalu'u Black Sands Beach creates the perfect setting for your island escape. In this quiet area the trade winds blow gently, the flowers are always blooming, the mighty green sea turtles bask on the shore, and the tumbling waves methodically crash on the black lava shoreline. It’s truly a tropical paradise.
Located in the only condominium complex on the southeast side of the Big Island, this 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom studio condo will allow you to enjoy your Hawaiian retreat in comfort and convenience. Begin your island mornings off in true Hawaiian fashion - with a cup of Kona or Ka’u coffee! The private lanai is the perfect place to sip coffee or orange juice and enjoy your breakfast as you relish in the refreshing ocean breezes and the cheerful sounds of the singing birds. After a relaxing morning, cool off by going for a dip in the community salt-water pool, or make the short walk down to the beach. The home is equipped with beach chairs, snorkels, a boogie board, a cooler, ice packs, travel mugs, and beach mats so you’ll have all the supplies you need for a day at the beach! After a day full of sand and sun, come back to the condo to unwind. Relax in the living room and watch your favorite shows and DVDs, or surf the web on the complimentary WiFi. When your guests work up an appetite use the bright kitchen or gas grill to whip up yummy island meals. Spend your evenings outdoors on the lanai with new, updated furniture where you can watch the colorful sunset over the ocean and sip your favorite beverage. Finally, retreat to the comfy queen-sized bed and let the gentle sounds of the crashing waves lull you into a peaceful sleep.
Conveniently located in the Colony One condo complex, you’ll find that this home is near a variety of attractions. The complex is surrounded by a 18 hole golf course that is said to have the most scenic golfing on the Big Island. Make the picturesque half hour drive through macadamia nut orchards, gentleman coffee plantations, and rolling green fields with horses and cattle grazing peacefully as you make your way to Volcano National Park. While you’re in the area be sure to explore the nearby plantation towns. For some of the finest dining and wine tasting on the Big Island, visit the village of Volcano. The charming town of Na'alehu is home to delicious restaurants, a delightful farmers market, and the southernmost bakery in the USA! Nearby Pahala is a quaint plantation town where you can take a tour through the K’au Coffee mill or visit Buddhist Temple where the Dalai Lama has stayed. Whether you choose to relax on the beach, or spend your days sightseeing, you’re sure to have a fantastic stay in paradise!

Very out-of-the-way, scenic, relaxing. Nice unit, with some annoying minor maintenance issues. Not ideal for "wheelchair access".
First impression favourable but then ... No lock on patio door, screen door wouldn't unlock, stifling hot, but when turned on fan over bed it hit beam over the bed, which it continued to do off and on all night. A previous review had mentioned lights over bed were too hot...nice sticker saying HOT...but should be changed! Sheets old, pilled, not fresh, mattress cover with smear! Slept on towel on couch. Found all this late in evening so too late to call manager. Will expect a refund as left after one night!
This accommodation is a resort that never quite made it. It feels a bit abandoned.
The location of this unit is both good and bad. It is very close to the pool and BBQ but that means in can get noisy. You have a nice view of the ocean but only from one corner of the patio.
The site manager is great and the grounds are immaculate. The pool and hot tub and clean. The kitchen is well stocked with various cooking implements One suggestion is that they fix a few things. The blinds do not have a rod so if you are short you can not open the patio blind. Also, the dishwasher is very noisy. I think there is also a leak there that should be looked at.
My boyfriend and I stayed here 2 nights on a 8 day on the big island . Condo had everything you needed to cook and go to the pool. Bedding could be upgraded, but bed was comfortable. There are no stores near by so I suggest you do your food shopping in Hilo or kona. Best time to get out is morning, the wind picks up in the afternoon.
My two girlfriends and I spent a week at this wonderful condo. We really enjoyed the short walk to the Black Beach and watching the sunsets each night. The golf course was very close and the grounds were very well kept. We enjoyed making our meals at home each night and relaxing with new friends by the pool and BBQ. We were very central to different locations and easily assessed many different attractions including the volcano, Panalu, coffee groves, horseback riding and many many beautiful beaches. The condo was very clean and very well stocked with everything we needed to make our stay the best. Really enjoyed the roadside fruit/ veggie stands we were able to get resupplied. I would definitely go back . I even considered buying and working there ! Thanks so much Shannon (and Kim! )
