About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This is a true one-bedroom unit, not a small studio unit that is (often) described as a one-bedroom unit.

This unit at Colony One, Sea Mountain, is a full one bedroom unit with a king-size bed in the bedroom on the lower level, and the living room, dining and kitchen on the upper level. There are great views of the sunrise from the lanai, from where you can also hear and watch the ocean. Punalu'u black sand beach is a 15-minute walk from the front door.

The living room contains a queen-size sleeper sofa that comfortably sleeps an additional two people. It has a vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan. The living room has a 37' flat-screen TV.

The fully-equipped and recently remodeled kitchen also contains a washer for your convenience. There is a drying rack which can be used within the condo, (NOT out on the lanai).

Rentals are professionally handled through a local agent. Registration ID 206-919-2704-01 Check in is 3PM and Check out is 10AM

Why James Rowley chose Pāhala

Fantastic, out of the way, quiet, beautiful, serene----where one goes to kick back and relax. Not a lot of amenities, but that's part of its charm--no hustle bustle!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our condo was left in disarray. Towels were stained. Kitchen items, decorations, and a fitted sheet were missing. We only held back 1/2 of the deposit which was less than the cost of the items missing or in need of replacement.

I disagree with all of her comments about the cleanliness as we have had many positive statements over the years about the pristine condition of our condo.

I would suggest that no one rent to this person in the future.

Very clean. Well maintained unit and complex

  • 5 of 5

This unit was well appointed with nice furniture, cable TV and comfortable bed. Plenty of parking, very nice pool area, very friendly neighbors. The whole complex was immaculate. This particular unit offered a view of the water and perfect for morning coffee and afternoon relaxation. The unit even had a cooler for keeping snacks fresh on day trips

The inside of the unit was clean. I mean CLEAN! Not even a speck of dust.

Awesome Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I did not know I was going to be so close to the famous Punaluu Black Sand Beach. I could walk there to see the turtles and just to relax in the morning.

This place is amazing, my husband did not bring everything he needed for snorkeling. We were surprise to find everything we needed here. There were beach chairs, snorkel gear, 3 boogie boards, some ice coolers and even some flashlights.

This condo is 11 miles from Na'alehu the town. Na'alehu has many restaurants and the famous Punalu'u bake shop.

If you are on the way to visit the Volcano, you can stop in Pahala for gas and snacks, you can also visit the Kau Coffee Mill.

We did not spend much time at the condo but found it a great place to stay. We did cook some meals here but did not use the grills by the pool. You do not need to buy spices for your cooking. This place has everything you need. The fridge has plenty of dressings for your salads and a large amount of butter. We did not know this and bought some too.

The pool overlooks the ocean and everything around the place is nice and clean.

The lanai faces the ocean and you can relax here with a drink at the end of the day.

We drove over 1250 miles visiting the Big Island and were always happy to return to our second home.

We even had some geckos visiting often in the lanai.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We treated it as if it was our own home.

Rod and Maria Lagace

p.s. for those buying groceries, make sure you buy closer to Hilo or Kona as the small stores in Na'alehu and Pahala do not carry much but snacks and drinks.

The first impression on the condo is a five 5 star but the internet and lock box needs to be correct

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed the experience but the association seriously needs to consider cooler comforts for people with health issues.. strongly recommend indoor conditioning unit to keep quiet , but fans are not enough.. make a survey how much more the owner will need to pay.. how about solar?? Perfect place for experimentation!!

Owner's Response: The condo was described as not having AC and you were aware of it before you rented. We have a condo association which prohibits them. The majority of the association agrees that they cherish the quiet more than the AC. If the main reason for downgrading the condo is the lack of AC, then I disagree with your rating. One doesn't rent a mountain view condo and then downgrade it because it doesn't have an ocean view. The other comments are justified. There was confusion about the right password for our internet, in that it was misspelled in one place, and the lock box code was incorrect in one site, albeit the correct one had been emailed to you 3 days before your stay. Our staff and we moved to correct the problems quickly.
