The best of Old Hawaii and a tropical resort setting in a bright, comfortable one bedroom studio condo with an ocean view. Colony One at the Sea Mountain offers essential visitor vacation amenities - a comfortable and well equipped condo, pool, hot tub, gas grills and more - combined with being within easy walking distance of one of Hawaii's most famous beaches - the black sand beach at Punalu'u Beach Park. Being able to walk to the beach from the condo - in just a few minutes - is one of the best features you could find and a bit of a rarity on much of the Big Island.Our condo was completely refreshed with paint, appliance and furniture updates in May 2017. We hope you'll find it to be a great base for your stay on the Big Island.

Colony One at the Sea Mountain offers essential visitor vacation amenities - a comfortable and well equipped condo, pool, hot tub, gas grills and more - combined with being within easy walking distance of one of Hawaii's most famous beaches - the black sand beach at Punalu'u Beach Park. Being able to walk to the beach from the condo - in just a few minutes - is one of the best features you could find and a bit of a rarity on much of the Big Island.Our condo was completely refreshed with paint, appliance and furniture updates in May 2017. We hope you'll find it to be a great base for your stay on the Big Island. As the only condo complex in the Ka'u District, these 75 units in a Polynesian style offer privacy with a tropical landscape in the middle of the longest stretch of undeveloped coast in all Hawaii - 90 miles of nothing but ocean and the most beautiful and varied coast line in the state. Two small towns are within 10 minutes in each direction (Naalehu, south, Pahala to the north) and offer visitor amenities - Naalehu has several restaurants (one of our favorites is Hana Hou) and the famous Punaluu Bakery (a must stop for every visitor), a hardware store, Shaka's bar, post office and twice-weekly farmer's market. Pahala has an incredibly efficient grocery store - the Mizuno Superette, a bank, churches, post office, hospital and a Long's Drug Store. Both locations have gas stations and a few other local businesses to explore. Every visitor to Hawaii Island will want to see Kilauea in Volcanos National Park. The condo is located 30 minutes from the park and is the only location near to the park that offers a resort vacation amenities. If you are looking for a riotous night-life...well, you will not find it here. In fact, you might be on the wrong island for the party experience; even Kailua-Kona rolls up the streets fairly early most nights (Try Oahu & Wakiki for big city bustle and hustle). We're not located in a city and the nearby towns are just as quiet at night . The pace of life here is slow, quiet - and for us, perfect...perfect for relaxation, exploration and the personal recharge you are looking for. None of the units at Sea Mountain have air conditioning, with the ocean trade winds, it's just not necessary. Our condo has three ceiling fans (two inside - living room and bedroom, one on the lanai) and generous natural ventilation with Hawaiian louvered windows throughout. We have found that often, with the fan on at night, you may need a blanket for sleeping...and of course a blanket is provided, along with some extra pillows, should you want or need either. Our condo has digital cable and private in unit WiFi. We added a web enabled TV for you to use your Netflix, Amazon or Hulu accounts - or any of entertainment apps on the TV itself. Enjoy a well equipped and efficient kitchen, relax and enjoy a movie or your favorite book and enjoy ocean view meals on the lanai. As a ground floor end unit, the location is private with extra end garden tropical plantings. On the rare days when you would want to eat inside (we have only eaten inside a couple of times) there is a built in island with two stools.The separate bedroom has louvered bi-fold doors for privacy. The queen bed has a memory foam topper and we think you'll find it to be very comfortable. There's under bed storage for luggage, two three drawer nightstand dressers and a large double closet. The spacious, well lit bathroom has a marble and glass block walk in shower, a ton of counter space and large mirror. Hairdryer under the sink. We have added extra towel rods for your bath and beach towels to dry, hooks in the shower for wet swim suits...and hopefully just about everything you'll need while you are there. White towel sets are provided for your use in the condo and over-sized red and white beach towels are provided for pool and beach use. We include starter paper products, trash bags, dish soap, hand soap and similar basic items for your stay. Our Hawaii condo is our piece of paradise and we have worked to make it a place we enjoy staying. We're proud to share it with new friends as it becomes your 'Aloha' place and you let Hawaii happen in your life. Rates are plus Hawaii general excise tax and transient accommodation tax (total of 13.42%). Your only additional fee is a once per stay cleaning charge. The monthly rate (30 nights) is $2249 plus tax; please contact us for a stay of 28 nights or more. Flipkey adds an additional fee for their service, we have no control over this. Thanks for looking and we hope to hear from you. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: W65120406-01More
