Beautiful home, amazing ocean views, in a great location.


Home Description

Welcome to The Royal Sea Cliff Resort.

This premier vacation destination is set on a dramatic rock bluff looking out over the Pacific Ocean

and cascades down the slope to the waves below.  Spread over seven acres this beautiful art deco complex is landscaped with tropical plants and flowers, flowing streams and waterfalls.  All of this is only 1 mile from the Kailua Village.


And welcome to my vacation home….#601.

Stepping through the door and down a short hall you enter the open and spacious living area.  The condo is beautifully decorated in a tropical style.  It is very warm and inviting place to relax in, then your eyes are drawn across the room to the glass door and the lanai beyond.  Stepping out onto the lanai the panorama opens to you……down the southern slope of Moana Loa and out over the blue Pacific.  You will be spending time out here! Coffee, meals, conversations, sunsets or just quietly contemplating.

To the right is the bedroom.  A California king bed waits for you at the end of the day.  There is plenty of space in the large dresser and closet for your needs and a flat screen TV is hidden in the cabinet. Unlike most units, 601 has the bedroom on the makai (ocean) side of the building not next to a hallway. Through another set of glass doors leads to a second lanai.  This lanai is open to the sky and has lounge chairs to relax in.  Work on your tan during the day and look up into the starry sky at night.

At the other side of the living room is the kitchen and dining area.  Well equipped for those who like to cook. There are all the necessary conveniences: full size appliances, quality kitchen wares, electric tea kettle and of course a coffee maker and grinder….Hey, you are in Kona, world renowned for its coffee.

Yet another thing to add to your comfort is central air conditioning.  Usually the cooling ocean breezes flowing through my condo are enough, but the air conditioning is there if needed.

My unit is located at the end of the south wing, one floor up from the lobby entrance and 2 floors above the underground secured parking.  Both stairs and elevators allow easy access.  The Royal Sea cliff is a well designed and maintained complex. The concrete structure is very strong and the solid walls and floors are soundproof.  This is a wonderful location offering great privacy, ease of access and some of the best sunset views in the complex!

The Royal Sea Cliff offers other amenities not found at many of the areas vacation rentals.  Free secured underground parking.  Six elevators provide easy access to all floors and the parking area.  By the front desk you will find bell carts to carry your belongings to your vacation home.  Also, in the front lobby is complimentary Kona coffee, a computer and printer, and an ice machine to fill your cooler before the beach!  You can also sign up for hula lessons or ukulele lessons there!  If you want to get a few sets in, there are tennis courts at the front of the property.

 Two oceanfront pools for your use. On the south side is a large heated pool and grass lawn at the oceans edge for families to enjoy. A cabana with restrooms and heated showers and the outdoor dining area with gas bbq grills. This is also where the resort offers weekly cultural activities for its guests:  Monday Sunset by the Sea, Tuesday Aloha Party and Friday Mahalo Party.  On the other side of the complex is a smaller “quiet” pool with a spa.  Mainly for adults seeking a quiet refuge, electronics are not allowed and books are very welcome.  It also has a cabana with restrooms and a small bbq/dining area as well.

 My condo, 601, is one of the few with this layout in the whole complex.  The 2 lanais, the bedroom on the ocean side and it’s location in the resort helps to make it one of the most desirable 1 bedrooms in the complex.    Add to that the beautiful interior and thoughtfulness of the accommodations.

One last thing….I am the owner of this condo.  Me and my brother manage it together and you will be dealing directly with us.   It is my goal to give you the best stay I can. 

Also, the pictures are of my condo, the one you are considering, will be the one you will be staying at if reserved.  It is a question I have been asked before.  Many guests have commented that the pictures are not as beautiful as my condo is!

Thank you for viewing my vacation home.


About The Area

Kailua-Kona is a quaint village on the west side of Hawaii, The Big Island.  Built around Kailua Bay, in 1812 it was the home of King Kamehameha the Great.

Throughout the year the area offers it's visitors many things to do.  There are many shops along Ali'i Drive to visit, the monthly art fair to attend and farmers markets to buy local fruits and vegetables.  Many restaurants for all tastes, from fine dining to fast food.  Also search out some of the local hidden places!  Marine activities of all sorts: swimming, snorkeling, surfing, deep sea fishing, night diving with manta rays, para-sailing and more.  Land based activities such as tennis, golf, cycling, hiking, museums.  And for some....just relaxing......sitting on a lanai, beach or pub, watching the waves roll in and the sun set over the ocean.

Kailua village is usually very mellow and low key although in October is the Ironman Triathalon World Championship!  If you plan on attending the event you must do it way in advance.

Much in the news recently is the Kilauea eruption.  The pictures and videos are very dramatic and scary.  I get many questions about this.  The area affected is about 10 to 15 square miles on the other side of the island.  Hawaii, The Big Island is over 4000 square miles. The recent eruptions have had almost no impact on Kailua-Kona nor most of the island.  

House Rules

The primary rule should always be respect.........for the other guests, the employees, my condo and the complex, the island and its people.  Hawaiian culture and traditions are very much alive and practiced.

More specific rules:

Hawaii state law that there is no smoking in vacation rentals or hotels, except in designated areas.  They are very strict about that.

For the fun and safety of all please follow all pool rules.  They are clearly posted at the pool entrance.

Quiet time is from 10pm to 8am.

It is traditional to remove your shoes before entering a homw


My vacation home at The Royal Sea Cliff is suitable for most people.  While on an upper floor of the resort, all floors can be reached by elevators.  This also includes the underground parking areas.  Families are welcome.

A Great Place to Celebrate!

We spent the month of May in Hawaii celebrating our 50th anniversary and could not have found a better place to do it!! The condo is gorgeous- looks just like the pictures. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Having two lanais makes it easy to enjoy the sun or have dinner in the shade. We spent every morning on the lanai drinking coffee and watching the tour boats go by. In the evening we had our wine and listened to the crashing waves. Being an end unit provides more privacy as you do not have traffic in front of the unit. The owners could not have been nicer and did everything possible to be sure we had a wonderful stay. We have rented many times through VRBO but this was the BEST!! Convenient to town, well stocked and beautifully decorated - you will be very happy you rented here! Thank you Michael & Michael for sharing your paradise with us. Aloha Pat & Jack

Very nice vacation. Didn’t want to leave. Mahalo

Michael, we had a wonderful time at your place. It was in a great location to walk to town or take the trolley. The pools were nice also. Everything we needed was there and available to us, thank you

Fabulously spacious, beautifully decorated with two lanai and views to the sea.

This spacious and beautifully decorated apartment is very well located, just outside the town of Kailua-Kona yet within a walkable distance. It offers a fabulous well equipped living space with every amenity provided to really enjoy your holiday (right down to a couple of comfortable chairs to sit under a palm on the beach). Two lanai with ocean views, off the living room and master bedroom provide fantastic light and a cooling breeze when necessary. We found it to be quiet, with little or no noise from neighbouring condos. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy our vacation. The two pools and ocean front relax zone are just 100 metres away. We loved it and will definitely return. Nick and Helene (London, UK

Would definitely book with you again!

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for out two week stay at the Royal Sea Cliff condo! The location of the unit on the property was perfect for us, giving us a feeling of privacy, and the view from the upper level was outstanding. We loved the decor and comfy furniture, all tastefully Hawaiiana. The property is close enough to Kailua town for easy trips to restaurants and shopping, but a not too close to the crowds. The grounds are beautiful with tropical pants blooming right out your window and impeccably maintained. We would definitely book with you again! Happy Aloha Holidays!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thank you! Beautiful, quiet, newly refurbished unit in a great location. You will have access to pools and a good view. Lots of space for two adults and two young teen kids. Kitchen is pretty well equipped. Close to Kailua Kona but away from the craziness. Parking was easy. Communicating with Michael was easy and I would highly recommend staying here.
