Second time to stay at the Sea Mountain condos. Grounds beautifully maintained, very friendly and helpful staff. Ocean view, walk to the beach, always see sea turtles, and very affordable. Will definitely be back and stay longer next time.

I apologize you were unhappy with your experience. The golf coarse is owned by a private company and has been closed for almost a year now. The Association Of Apartment Owners (AOAO) at Sea Mountain has advised VI of pool closure in April and May 2019 to repair and replace the pool area deck. We hope you give us another opportunity to exceed your expectation in the future as our guests are top priority.

If you like being far away from the tourist scene the place is perfect. The good views seem to be assigned at random. Here are the photos from unit 35. Long bouncy drive to get here. Place is well maintained. Price is good if your a VI owner. People complaining must not

Thank you for your review and pointing out this is a secluded resort on a rural island. For those who want to relax, chill, explore Volcano park or enjoy the black sand beach it is ideal. Please join us again soon.

ホテルの部屋です。 玄関から半階上がるタイプの部屋は、屋根型の天井が気持ち良い空間です。 大きな窓の向こうにはのびのびしたバルコニーがあり、こちらから星を見ることもできました。
Great kitchen
Yes it is refundable. The only way money is withheld is if there is damages to the unit.

Which unit numbers are 2-bedrooms?
Depends on what company you have booked a unit with. There are HOA units and Timeshare units. If you booked through VI we don't assign specific units to a reservation till day of check in. You can contact our Owner Services dept at 18004446633 for answers to questions regarding VI units.

When were they built
First time I went there was in the late 70's so before that. Originally built for the sugar mill workers on that part of the island. They have been renovated several times and are in good shape with good wifi even.

"This is NOT a hotel,,,rather it is a resort with units spread out. Not all units have an ocean view."
"Most rooms overlook the golf course that 30 years ago was the most beautiful I've ever played. Most have some ocean view"
"Choose upper level floor because it gets really hot in the lower level rooms."
"Book well in advance as this seems to be a destination Resort. A rental vehicle is a must:)"
"Condo 76 had a beautiful view."
