Step back in time to "Old Hawaii" this vacation! Located on the southeast side of the Big Island, this 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom condo will provide a comfortable getaway. You're around the corner from the world-famous Punalu'u Black Sands Beach, and a half hour to Volcano National Park. In this quiet area the trade winds blow gently, the flowers always bloom, the sea turtles bask on the shore, and the tumbling waves crash rhythmically on the black lava shoreline.
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!

Calm peaceful location with stunning views!
I found this location to be calm and peaceful. It is located about half-way between Kona and Hilo on the sound end of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is not a shopping destination as there are few stores close to the location. However, it is a half hour from the spectacular Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This was out destination on this trip and the location could not be better.
The grounds well very well kept. The swimming pool and hot tub very inviting. I loved looking out at the beautiful Pacific Ocean while sitting in the pool or the hot tub The gas BBQ's at the pool were very clean and easy to use.
Our condo was very comfortable. Kitchen well stocked with plates, cups utensils and condiments. The bed was very nice and we slept well. Everything was clean and comfortable.
I do wish that the HomeAway site had actual pictures of the condo, though.
We will definitely be back.
Small Condo in Paradise
The space was very clean, although quite limited in comfortable furnishings (spring stuck up from sofa) or storage space. Still, it was very affordable, had a nice deck with a lovely partial view of the water, and served as a great launching point from which to experience the island. It is really not a one bedroom, but rather a studio condo. Otherwise, it is described almost exactly as it really is. The surrounding amenities of pool and hot tub are a great plus, and the proximity to the black sand beach very appealing.
Property was okay, had a pool and hot tub. Close to beach with beautiful views.
Property grounds were nice with beautiful views. Walls were paper thin, making quite time almost impossible. We had very loud neighbors and outside noise much of the nights. Our unit specifically had been closed up so very stuffy and musty smelling. Sheets and towels seemed clean and fresh. Floors, kitchen and dishes left much to be desired.
Joanna, We are glad to hear you overall enjoyed your stay, specifically the property grounds and views! Feedback from our guests is important to us and we have made the owner aware of your concerns regarding the nearby noise, smell and kitchen. It can happen that at times neighboring guests get loud, and we encourage guests to reach out to the guest contact during their stay to resolve any issues right away. The owner has contacted the cleaning crew to ensure the musty smell you experiences does not recur for future guests. In the tropics, the rain can come down in a great force, so as a precaution the condo was closed up to keep natural elements out. Based on your comments, the cleaning crew will now be taking inventory of the kitchen so it is fully prepared for guest convenience. Thank you again for letting us know! Best, The Evolve Team
Great place too stay close to the beach.
My studio needs updating, too many electrical problems with light switches and ceiling fans. Ants was a big problem maybe try treating area for 🐜 that kept coming in the bedroom and crawling into our bed. The staff was very friendly and hospitable.
Dale, We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall, but do apologize for the issues you encountered regarding switches and ants! We have shared your comments with the homeowner to ensure that the necessary adjustments are made so these issues don’t recur for future guests. Thanks for letting us know, and we hope to assist you in booking a vacation rental that exceeds your expectations in the future. Best, The Evolve Team
Perfect for two people!
The condo had everything we needed and the view is awesome! Would stay here again.
Very out-of-the-way, scenic, relaxing. Nice unit, with some annoying minor maintenance issues. Not ideal for "wheelchair access".
