Black Sand Hideaway (Big Island) (NOTE: pool& hot tub closed 4/1-6/1/19)

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Pahala, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
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, on the Big Island, (Hawaii Island), has 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 an airy vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan. The living room has a 40'' flat-screen cable TV. The fully-equipped and recently remodeled kitchen contains a dishwasher and a clothes washer and dryer for your convenience.

This place was everything we could have asked for. We wanted to be able to spend time at Punalu’u Beach without the crowds, and this enabled us to go early and be there until sundown. It gave us perfect access to Volcanoes National Park, and...More

About the neighbourhood
Our condo is next door to the Sea Mountain Golf Course. Unfortunately, the golf course is currently closed.

We usually arrive in Kona. We buy our groceries at Costco,73-5600 Maiau St, Kailua-Kona, , which is close to the airport, and then for the other items, we use Safeway, which is at 75-1027 Henry St, Kailua-Kona.

After you leave Kona and travel south, it takes about an hour and a half to get to Sea Mountain.

If you wish, you can stop at ChoiceMart in Captain Cook, 82-6066 Mamalahoa Hwy
Captain Cook, HI 96704 They have a wide selection of items, and we really enjoy their fresh caught fish. The Ahi and all the others are quite good. We especially like their Opah.
Getting around
One could possibly use the county wide bus service, but it has long distances between stops and takes hours to get to locations. Also, carrying luggage on the bus and then walking up to a quarter mile from the stop to our condo is not fun.
I strongly recommend renting a car for your stay.

Of note, there are speed traps on the belt highway close to Ocean View and all the way through Waiohino and Naalehu, so make sure that you stay close to the 25 mph when it is posted. Also, on the way from Naalehu to the condo, there are speed traps along that highway, also.
