We stayed here at the Sea Mountain (now being called Colony 1) September 15th for 4 nights. We had a studio #36. This was the most quiet, clean and beautiful place to stay. The studio we had was spotless. Bed very comfortable. Had all the kitchen items needed. Washer and dryer and a very large walk in shower. View was great. The Black Sand Beach is in walking distance. My husband got the most wonderful sunrise pictures. They do have a golf course. We don't play golf but, we could watch them play and they looked like they were enjoying it very much.
The Condo's are 1 hour and 15 mins from the Hilo airport driving the speed limit. It is hard to see the turn for the condos. It will be on your left. The 4way isn't lighted but, it is a 4 way you will come to. It gets dark at 6:32pm on the Big Island so driving in we couldn't see anything.
If you come in after 5pm. They will leave you information on how to call and to get your key if you are arriving late. We came into the condos at dark and when we woke up and seen the beauty we couldn't hardly believe our eyes.
Some of the reviews says there no where to eat. If you come out of the condos at the 4 way and turn left and head toward Kona. Drive for 15 mins and you will come to the Punaluu Bake Shop. They have the most wonderful pastry's and sandwiches and they are reasonably priced. They are open from 9am to 5pm.
Also, some reviewers said you need to come in by Kona due to getting grocery's but, you don't. When you turn left out of the Hilo airport. A couple of blocks down on your right there is a KTA grocery store. Go a few more blocks and on your right there is a Walmart and other shops.
We ate supper at the Hawaiian Café that the enterprise guy told us about at the airport. Good food large portions.
They have a very clean well maintained med size kidney shape pool and a very warm hot tub. Grills if you want to use them. Everyone we came in contact with was very nice and pleasant.
The rooms are cooled by ceiling fans only. But, was fine for us. We didn't get too hot. It was great waking up to the sounds of the doves outside. You can open all windows and sliding door for more air if needed.
If you want a quiet restful place to stay out away from all the hustle and bustle this is where you need to stay. I can't say enough about this place. My husband was so relaxed he unpacked our cloths and put them away as if we were going to live there. He has never done that before. He says it's a little peace of paradise.
