About the Owner

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.

During my recent stay on the Big Island, we really enjoyed this condo due to its convenient location and its very good value. The owner was very responsive to questions and very helpful.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed several times at the Royal Sea Cliff. This was the first time thru VRBO. These units are located very close to Kona town and to the main highway. This makes for easy exploring in all directions. The unit was clean, well stocked and sufficient for what we needed. (not preparing any meals in the unit). The complex has two nice pools and a hot tub.

Wonderful condo in a wonderful resort!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I went to stay in Kona for a wedding, and we booked into the same resort (Royal Sea Cliff) where the bride and groom were staying. Given the totally reasonable price, I was shocked at how nice the apartment was!!! Tom, the owner, emailed us all the instructions we needed, and we never even had to check in or out at the front desk- just picked up our keys when we arrived (there's a cool lockbox thing) and left them when we left. The apartment was HUGE, King-size bed, laundry in the unit, nice balcony, nice kitchen with utensils etc. My boyfriend cooks, and his only complaint was that the knives were very dull - Tom, you should get a knife sharpener! :) Overall everything was awesome.

It is maybe a 20- or 30-min walk into "town," but the resort will call you a cab and the cab cost is only like $6 to $10. We managed fine without a rental car.

Owner's Response: Aloha to my nice guests,
It is a great that all of my guests are feeling that they belong at my apartment in Royal Sea Cliff.
And that they appreciate the work that my housekeeper and I do.

Also thanks for noting that my prices are the best of any unit in Royal Sea Cliff Resort.

We are proud of having a well equipped kitchen with pots and pans plus utensils for cooking and equipment for baking.

My guests are welcome back anytime and at my best rates.

Great place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5
The communication with Tom was excellent. I sent him a bunch of emails with questions before my arrival and he replied to me quickly. The condo was clean, had plenty of towels. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Kona. I paid for the studio but we stayed at a 1 bedroom. Tom upgrade us to that one because they were working on the AC at the other unit.

Beautiful condo and amazing location. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and loved it! The condo was very clean and well-maintained, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the bed was comfortable. I loved having my morning coffee out on the lanai and watching the ocean off in the distant (not a direct view of the ocean but still beautiful). We really felt at home here for the week. Given how expensive many places in Kona are, this place felt like an amazing steal!
The property itself was great. The pools were lovely and warm with beautiful views of the ocean. Very peaceful and quiet neighbors. The location was convenient - so close to everything in Kona!
Tom was great and super responsive too. Thank you for sharing this lovely condo with us! It was truly a memorable and special stay and if we ever find ourselves on the Big Island again we would certainly stay here again! Mahalo!

Royal Sea Cliff Condo

  • 4 of 5
Hi Thom:

Thank you for letting us use your condo and "being available" when we needed you.

We found the condo clean, well equipped and very large for a studio. We especially loved the cooler you left for our use. It came in handy on our road trips and beach days.

Being a short person with arthritis, both pools and the hot tub at the condo were very difficult to get in and out of for me. We bought a small stool to make it possible for me to use the hot tub. This is an issue that might be addressed at an "owners'" meeting as I assume a lot of your clientele are not young.

I believe one of your photos shows a "peek a boo" view of the ocean. The palm trees now have grown to the point that you cannot see the water from the lanai.

We enjoyed the weekly activities at the resort. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We did enjoy ourselves and would recommend your condo to others that do not have mobility issues.

Thanks again.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Kona International Airport at 9 Miles Nearest Golf : Mauna Loa Village at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : Alii Drive Nearest Restaurant : Jackie's Ohana Grill at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Kahalu'u Beach at 1 Miles Car: recommended

Located right on Alii Drive which is Kona's life-blood, everything happens on Alii Drive. It is an easy level walk to the town center. Along the way see art galleries, coves with booming waves, restaurants, and many unique shops. Don't miss the Stone Church, Queens Palace, or the year-round market. Don't miss coffee farm tours.

From the Owner

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.
