Kona Seaspray
Reviewed 8 February 2014

This was our second visit to the Kona Seaspray, first trip we stayed in 203 which was nice with an ocean view; this time we stayed on the top floor in 302, which has an even better ocean view. We loved eating on our lanai overlooking the sea, watching whales from inside (while cooking dinner), and hanging out at the awesome pool area. Bob is great, he made sure we had everything we needed - even brought us a crockpot on request (for easier meals). I love this place, and will definitely be back! If your looking for fancy, this may not be your place, but it is clean and comfortable and was perfect for us. It's also nice that it's a small 9 unit building, not a giant condo compound; and the proximity to the best snorkeling on the island makes it a primo place to be. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed! Note: make sure you're on 2nd or 3rd floor if you want the ocean view.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled with family

Our location was optimal for everything we wanted to do-across from snorkelbeach, we did not have to hassle driving. Snorkeling ,surfing and a beach were in front. On the 3rd floor we saw it all and it was stunning. A few minutes from farmers markets and town also.Management was helpful, friendly and watchful of guests. The only problem is that we had to leave.

Room Tip: Lanai will keep you coming back.

The owner tried to rip me off for an extra foldable bed and one extra night stay when I was ill with fever for four days. To my suprise my credit card was charged way too much before I´d checked out. Not nice!

Wow! Relaxing, beautiful and priced right. My wife and I stayed at the Kona Seaspray for five nights in May and we wished we had stayed much longer.

The Seaspray is located just minutes from Kailua Village shopping and restaurants. Our "room" was more like a spacious condominium: two bedrooms, two baths, living room, washer, dryer, and fully equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were quiet (located away from the Ali'i Drive side), the mattresses were soft, and the ceiling fans created a silent breeze. Bob Johnson is the manager, he's friendly and laid back and full of good suggestions for day trips. Just ask and he may offer you an extraordinarily low rate in the off season.

Our 3rd floor apartment had a gorgeous view of Kahalu'u Beach Park: sunsets, surfers, and ocean spray. You can easily walk to world-class coral reef snorkeling - keep an eye out for the sea turtles around high tide! Each morning we sipped our freshly brewed Kona coffee on the shady lanai while watching the surfers in the azure blue waves. It rained on the last night of our stay - wonderful! Imagine awakening to tropical bird song, ocean breakers and the sound of rain gently hitting the roof. Paradise.

We've stayed at large resorts in the Kona area, but next time we are going back to the Seaspray.

Stayed at the Seaspray for a week this March. First of all, you can't beat the location. Downtown Kona is only a short drive away and this place is within walking distance of Kahalu'u Bay where some of the best snorkeling takes place.

Our unit was pretty nice, large laundry room, decent sized rooms. As a family, it was nice having more than one bathroom. The kitchen and dining room area were also large enough for multiple people to occupy at the same time.

The view from the lanai was also superb. We sat out every night and watched the sunset and every morning to watch the surfers. Our unit, on the third floor, was a full ocean view. Only complaint is about the stupid telephone wires that are hanging above the street (not the Seaspray's fault).

Would definitely recommend this place.

Bob the owner is a really nice guy and helped us with whatever we needed.

Also, they have free boogie boards for rent!
