This place was everything we could have asked for. We wanted to be able to spend time at Punalu’u Beach without the crowds, and this enabled us to go early and be there until sundown. It gave us perfect access to Volcanoes National Park, and...More

My fiancee and I enjoyed four wonderful nights there. The spot is great if you are looking for something outside the touristy places such as Hilo or Kona. You can see and hear the ocean from the balcony. The black beach close by is amazing....More

About the neighbourhood
Our condo is next door to the Sea Mountain Golf Course. Unfortunately, the golf course is currently closed. We usually arrive in Kona. We buy our groceries at Costco,73-5600 Maiau St, Kailua-Kona, , which is close to the airport, and then for the other items, we use Safeway, which is at 75-1027 Henry St, Kailua-Kona. After you leave Kona and travel south, it takes about an hour and a half to get to Sea Mountain. If you wish, you can stop at ChoiceMart in Captain Cook, 82-6066 Mamalahoa Hwy Captain Cook, HI 96704 They have a wide selection of items, and we really enjoy their fresh caught fish. The Ahi and all the others are quite good. We especially like their Opah.
Getting around
One could possibly use the county wide bus service, but it has long distances between stops and takes hours to get to locations. Also, carrying luggage on the bus and then walking up to a half mile from the stop to our condo is not fun. I strongly recommend renting a car for your stay. Of note, there are speed traps on the belt highway close to Ocean View and all the way through Waiohino and Naalehu, so make sure that you stay close to the 25 mph when it is posted. Also, on the way from Naalehu to the condo, there are speed traps along that highway, also.
