About Tom Kahl

After college at Pennsylvania State University, I started from scratch, a successful outdoor store called Outdoor Experience. Ironically, except for leading trips and teaching windsurfing, it kept me away from the outdoors.

I sold it and moved to the San Francisco Bay area.

I invested in homes in San Francisco, Ca. and Park City, Utah.

Loving the outdoors and nature naturally drew me to Hawaii.

It's so special, no where else on earth combines Fun, Excitement, and Beauty with a perfect year-round Climate.

Tom Kahl purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Tom Kahl chose Kona Coast

I searched the Kona Coast with the best agents in Kona, Kona Resort Properties. Royal Sea Cliff Resort, has the best of all worlds. Beautiful maintained and superly designed and on best part of the Ocean and Coast. It is the closest Resort to Kona, (easy walk) that still feels like a tropical paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

This Architecture is the best of the modern styles. It works so well with the Land and the Ocean, and the ancient Lava Flow Bluff. Though the buildings look imposing, they are not over 25' tall at any one place. Only a few Studios were built, and are special since they are always at the end of the wings, surrounded on three sides with lush tropical vegetation. Very private and very peaceful.

Comfortable quiet studio

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 10 day stay in this studio unit at the Royal Sea Cliff. It is an end unit, so it is quiet and private with easy access to parking. The view and lanai are very nice. There is plenty of room on the lanai for the two lounge chairs and a round table which we enjoyed as an ideal place for sunset dinners. Ocean view is very pleasant and photos on the listing are accurate. One thing I really enjoyed about the Lanai is that it is shaded until early afternoon and thus a very comfortable retreat on which to relax, enjoy a coffee and book and catch the view of the ocean through the palms.

The unit is a studio but there is ample room for a couple. The full kitchen, washer/dryer and bathroom down the entry hall all adds to the sense of spaciousness not usually expected in a studio. The unit was clean and well equipped, and the owner was attentive and business dealings clear and well managed.

This was our second stay at the Royal Sea Cliff which has become a favorite option on the Kona side. We will definitely return next time we find ourselves on the big island.

We had a very relaxing stay. Found everything we needed. Would stay again.

  • 4 of 5

Grounds are beautiful. Condo was well stocked with everything. Used the facility's BBQ lots. Found that you really didn't need to use the ac as a stand up fan provided lots of air movement. Condo was clean and the bed very comfortable. You had a nice partial view of the ocean and could always hear the surf too. Tom was very accommodating and would absolutely stay here again in the future.

Comfortable Clean Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Sea Cliff condo. The condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. It was very relaxing to enjoy morning coffee on the lanai and was a great place to come back to after a long day of sight seeing. The location of the property is close enough to town that we could walk. The property has two very nice swimming pools that we enjoyed. Tom, the owner was available to us when we needed him.

THIS is where you want to stay in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in Kona!! The property is beautiful and centrally located. We enjoyed the two pools...a quiet pool if you prefer it, and a regular one for the kids. The quiet pool was especially nice for some relaxing downtime. Our particular unit was great. Very clean, well decorated and supplied with everything we needed, perfectly comfortable even in the hottest and muggiest weather in 30 years, according to the locals! The owner was so attentive and actually personally came to take care of anything that wasn't perfect. They really do their best to make it as comfortable and well-appointed as if it were their own home. We've stayed in several places in Kona and this was by far the best experience we've had.

Thank you for providing a great place for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting Hawaii, and I am very glad I happened to stay at such a wonderful place - otherwise, my experience would not have been as excellent, as it turned out to be.

This location is practically in the heart of Kona, so you can go any direction and find something to explore, plus - lots of organizations providing information about attractions nearby. Absolutely beautiful hotel, amazing views from all sides of the hotel - and in particular, a beautiful ocean view from our room, with the sounds of seashore easily heard. The location itself is also a very peaceful area, without the urban craze and noises.

Room is supplied absolutely everything needed for everyday life. I am used to comfort and always need to have what i need with me - there was not a thing missing.

Bedding - very comfortable mattress, which is really important when staying on a vacation.

Complimentary WiFi in the room - my husband was quite happy.

Everything was clean, cozy, and a perfect ambiance for a vacation.

There were always activities on the hotel territory, which we did not have a chance to check out, only because of how exhausted we were after all the exploring done throughout the day. However, for those traveling with children, those activities would be worth to check out.

Amazing price for an amazing stay. Also, Tom (the owner) advised us a car rental company, which gave us a great deal, and again - my husband was extremely satisfied.

Thank you very much for providing us with a great vacation.
