A nice little getaway spot on the island, near Punalulu - the Black Sand Beach. We rented directly from the owner who was very responsive and ensures the unit is well kept. This is where you want to be if you don't need the resort scene. Bring a good book and lots of sunscreen. Only criticism is we did get...

Late Sept. 2014, we got a Studio from Sea Mountain. The unit we got had an outside door entry with several tiled stairs that led down into the Studio where there was a kitchenette/living room. The living room had a 3 seat couch (that pulls out to a sofa which we did not use) and a matching single chair. There...

You must know that most rooms here have no air conditioning! Temps do cool down at night but it is important to know going in. Resort is hours from main cities so get groceries before leaving Kona or Hilo. Knowing these two bits will help you plan and make a short stay or a week long adventure very enjoyable. Staff...

We had a 1 bedroom condo through our timeshare. The place was huge, on 2 levels. Beautiful lanai overlooking the golf course and ocean. It had a full kitchen(stock up with groceries before you leave Kona or Hilo because the condo is not really close to anything ) We were kind of nervous when we started driving because the GPS...

This resort is beautiful! Our condo was clean and spacious. The ladies at the resort office are super friendly and helpful. Our kids loved the pool (though it is small); however, children are not allowed in the hot tub. We only stayed one night as a pit stop to see the local beaches, but I wish we had another day...

This is one of the most peaceful and serene locations we've ever been to! We'll be back! TIPS before you get there: Regardless of whether you fly into Kona or Hilo, buy an inexpensive cooler and buy your food! About 6 miles from the resort, there is a small store, but it is not open late -- and the prices...

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort. Sea Mountain is a unique resort and the location to the black sand beach and volcano park can't be beat. Please come back and visit soon.

Get away from tourist traps and enjoy life for a while. This is genuine Hawai'i. The quaint town of Naalehu is a short drive and there are ample services there. If you are from the mainland, driving from Sea Mountain Resort to any of the other attractions on the island of Hawai'i is easy. (After all, any Haole would find...

OK, let's get this out of the way: it IS remote and there is NOTHING within walking distance except for a golf course (that we didn't care about) and a great black sand beach. No restaurants, no houses, nothing at all. The nearest dinner restaurant is within 6 miles. However, we loved this aspect of it - as well as...

Sea Mountain is in a great location if you want a peaceful Hawaiian vacation and to spend time at Volcanoes National Park. A short 1/4 mile walk to Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, we were treated to Green Sea Turtles resting/nesting on the beach during our April visit. The view from our unit (#37, I think) was great, across the scenic...

We stayed at Sea Mountain Resort #24 after a week at a Resort north of Kona enjoyed the scenic drive shopped before hand stopped at a few road side stands. Once we opened the door and saw the view off the ocean the drive was well worth it as we had planed our 10 days on the big Island and...
