About this listing

Hawaiian Polynesian setting. Bright, cozy one bedroom studio condo with ocean view. Comfortable & well equipped, within walking distance of the famous Punalu'u black sand beach and just a short drive from Volcanoes National Park.

The space

Our ground floor condo was just refreshed with paint, appliance updates, fixtures and furniture in May 2017. We think you'll find it to be a just right base of operations for your exploration of the Big Island.

Situated among 75 Polynesian style units with great aesthetics and a private setting. Located in the middle of the longest stretch of undeveloped coast in all Hawaii - 90 miles of ocean and the most beautiful and varied coast line in the state.

A note about pricing...was looking at a listing on a different site (but same complex) that showed $95 / night. Well, four nights with cleaning charge in the unit that was $95 / night came to $563.35 (Plus site "service" fees of $51 more!!). Just so you know how our pricing works - four nights in our condo comes to $436 + $85 cleaning charge - or a total of $521 (plus Airbnb charges we don't control). We are required by law to tell you how that breaks down: Nightly rate is $96 plus $4 Excise Tax and $9 Accommodation taxes. Our price shown in the listing is a total price and includes taxes. The cleaning charge is the only other expense you have. Hope that helps so you can make an "apples to apples" comparison!

Guest access

Entry is via a coded lock box. We'll email the code and a PDF with check in / check out instructions.

Interaction with guests

We are available to our guests by phone, text or email at any time. If there is something urgent, and you can't reach us, we have a local contact on the Island. We have been part of the Airbnb community for several years and believe that good communication before, during and after your trip is essential to a good experience. Don't hesitate to contact us.

Other things to note

Before buying our condo in Hawaii, we stayed in Kailua-Kona and Hilo. After checking out other areas, we decided the Ka'u District is the best fit for us.

If you are looking for a riotous 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 perfect...perfect for relaxation, exploration and the recharge you are looking for. Take time to sit and watch the sea breeze blow the palm trees in the tradewinds and be awed by the millions of stars in the blackness of the night sky. Kailua-Kona is an hour and thirty minute drive; Hilo is an hour away - that's each way. So, we suggest stocking up on groceries when you arrive in either airport.

None of the units at Sea Mountain have air conditioning - ours has three ceiling fans (two inside - living room and bedroom, one on the lanai) and generous ventilation with louvered windows for the famous trade winds. A blanket is provided, along with some extra pillows, should you want or need them.

High-speed Wifi is available for our unit. The condo features digital cable TV and we have a Samsung Smart TV for streaming from your own Hulu, Amazon or Netflix account. We'll provide the WiFi password after you complete your reservation.

The kitchen is equipped and efficient for a short or long stay. 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 and has tropical plantings on the end garden. On the rare days when you would want to eat inside there is a built in island with two stools. We spend a lot of time on the lanai and you'll want to as well, I bet.

The separate bedroom has louvered bi-fold doors for privacy. The queen bed has a memory foam topper with under bed storage for luggage. There are two three drawer nightstand dressers and a large double closet. Plenty of storage for any length stay.

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. 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.

You'll find two beach chairs, snorkel gear and a cooler in the upstairs closet. I may have mentioned it elsewhere, but, in case I didn't we also have two beach towels for you to use (red and white striped). We provide starter paper products, trash bags, dish soap, hand soap and similar basic items for your stay. We ask that our guests launder the beach towels prior to leaving in the coin operated laundry in the complex. Laundry soap is provided.

It's all common sense stuff, but, we find it's best to have it in writing.

Amazing ! Didn't meet them in person but all their indications were detailed and accurate and they answered immediately to any question. Ask them anything about the area they know it. The condo was exactly as described. So peaceful. Would definitely come again.

Great place to stay to unwind and relax. Black sands beach was beautiful. My family and I appreciated the beach items Tom left for us. Hot tub and pool on premises made it feel like a spa holiday! The back lanai had a great view of the ocean. Tip: Bring lots of quarters for laundry.

Response from Tom & Christen:
Aloha, Ann & thanks for the great review! Since our complex is just 75 units, the pool, grill area and hot tub not usually very crowded - and often feel almost private! We love ending our day with a mai-tai in the hot tub (plastic glasses ONLY!). Change for the laundry is often available at the old golf course pro shop (across the street from the condo parking lot entrance). Or visit our nearby small town, Pahala, where there's a bank in the shopping center near the Superette Market.

If you want to really get away this is a great location. Plan on going to Volcano National Park a lot? You can't beat this location either! Perfectly clean and well supplied for two people. A great home away from home. We loved it!

Response from Tom & Christen:
We are happy Cristen enjoyed her stay in our special spot on the Island of Hawaii. At ov(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) acres, the Volcanoes National Park border is about 15 minutes away - and the park's front gate just 30 minutes. We're glad she enjoyed the convenience of our location - and especially happy they enjoyed the feeling of real Hawaii that the Ka'u District offers. Mahalo plenty.

Response from Tom & Christen:
Although we're only starting our third year of rentals at the condo, we're so flattered by our growing list of repeat guests...folks who have figured out the magic of old Hawaii just like we did! Thanks, Kelly for the kind feedback and we'll look forward to having you back at the condo any time. Aloha T&C

This is a great place to get away! Great clean condo! Everything you could need, including snorkeling equipment! 5 minute walk to a great black-sand beach! Bring groceries! This place is a hike from Kona and Hilo, although driving either way is simply beautiful! My only gripe was that I could hear the neighbors through the walls. Didn't ruin my day by any means!

Comfortable and great for access to Volcanoes National Park. Pool and hot tub were great additions.

This is even better than the pics. The bed is very comfortable and the place is lovely. It was wonderful to have everything we needed on hand and be so close to the beach as well as Volcano park. Would definitely go back!

We are Christen and Tom Mizikar, owners of Beechwood Cottage in the historic Ligonier Valley of Pennsylvania and Beachwood Punaluu in beautiful Hawaii.

We have been providing vacation rental stays since before "Airbnb" was a verb! In our many years of hosting vacation guests, we've learned how to help you connect, relax, enjoy and experience two different, unique and special places.

Our cottage has an authenticity and style and setting that makes it special - from the 18th century chairs at the table to the giant stone fireplace to painstakingly hand-painted floors or hand-made draperies...we welcome you to respite under the shade of tall oak, hemlock, ash and poplar trees.

Our condo is in just as unique location along the last undeveloped coast in all of Hawaii. We love to share the star filled skies, black sand beach and tall palm trees blowing in the tradewinds. Sit on the lanai and listen for the sound of the waves crashing into black lava outcroppings...look as far as one may see and fill your eyes with nature's beauty at Punalu'u, Ninole Cove or all along the Ka'u coast.

When we travel, we have high expectations for both destination and accommodation. We wouldn't have you stay in anything less than perfect for us - and we hope you'll find either (or both!) to be just what you are looking for in a short term lodging experience.
