Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Steve

My friend, his daughter and I have rented the condo at White Sands Village from July 8 to July 15, 2010 . I would like to let you know that we had a wonderful and great time in Kona and on the island. The condo, unit 112, is part of it . To be honest, we were wondering if it would be as the photos on the Internet where upon our arrival we were very pleased and we appreciated that it is as advertized. The unit is amazingly well kept and very well situated. The condo is so well equipped, comfortable, clean and quiet; it has made our stay very enjoyable. We enjoyed every minute of it, thanks to you. Next time we are in Kona, we will go back to that condo and also we will recommend it to our friends and families. Thanks again. Mahalo.

Favorite Place to Stay in Kona!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here before, and loved it just as much this time around! It's so clean, convenient, and with close access to the beach, we couldn't ask for more! The unit was quiet, and we found everything we could possibly need. We always felt safe and comfortable. The internet was a bit slow/flakey at times, but we figured that was due to the nature of the building -- who wants to work anyway? But the building construction also made it so quiet! Steve was great to work with, and the manager in the complex was very nice. I would definitely book this property again, and would recommend to my friends -- just don't take my weeks! We mostly just sat on the beach and relaxed, but also enjoyed diving with Kona Honu Divers - excellent boat dives and the Manta Ray Night Dive/Snorkel is not to be missed! Thanks Steve!

Wonderful stay in Kona!!

  • 5 of 5
My son and I stayed at White Sands Beach and it was PERFECT for us! We felt so at home. I loved that we weren't right in town with all the traffic and people yet very close to everything. The beach right across the street was so nice for those lazy days. The condo's photos from the website are absolutely accurate. The condo could use some detailed cleaning- not the type of cleaning a service does so I was certainly pleased with how things were. You need to stop at another hotel who manages the property to get the combination to the lock which holds the key. Both properties were easy to find. I loved the washer and dryer! The very basics are there but it probably varies with the previous tenant- we left paper towels, nice bath tissue and soap for both the clothes washer and the dishwasher. We used the foil and used up the rest of the baggies... So stop by to see what is there before going to the store- There is a nice shopping area just a few miles away. We had fun using the pool table and there were lots of paperback books to read. The rules to the pool keep it nice for adults but the kids can't play games like Marco- Polo. There are nice beach chairs, a couple of coolers and lots of swim things like flippers, snorkels... My only complaint is the pillows :) A pillow is a very personal thing but all the pillows are like fluffy marshmallows that nearly flatten when you lay on them. Without prompting, my son even complained about them. A few firmer pillows would be nice. Would I stay here again? Absolutely!! My son even requesting coming back to the same place.

My son took surfing lessons at the beach a mile away (Kahalu'u Bay Surf and Sea) and for him, that was the highlight. Ben was a WONDERFUL instructor; absolutely the best. Mike was also good. The woman and co-owner (wife of Ben) was very rude but Ben more than made up for her. Despite the wife, I would return.

We visited the Hilo side for 2 nights and stayed at Aaron's Cottage. Since I was paying for both places, I needed some place cheap and Aaron's was perfect. Felt like a very nice youth hostel. A community kitchen where they served a homemade breakfast every morning. So nice to sit outside and chat with the other guests. I do think Hilo is worth more than a day visit. We spent one day at the Volcano- so worth the time. We also did a zipline in Hilo. Great fun.

Sure hoping to return here in the coming years!!

Great time at White Sands Village

  • 4 of 5
We had stayed here once before so knew what to expect, and weren't disappointed. It is a very nice property for our needs, very affordable, conveniently located and well kept. The owner is easy to contact when necessary. We have come to love the Big Island, and hope to return as often as possible in the future.

Steve and an incredible assortment of masks, fins, snorkels, beach chairs,, coolers etc. - everything you will need (no need to pack/pay for baggage). The location has to be one of the best - directly across from White Sand/Magic Beach . . . beach volleyball, big waves for boogie boarding and an INCREDIBLE spot for watching the sunset. The unit, although a little aged (like most spots in Kona), has very nice accommodations and comes fully equipped. We would definitely rent Steve's unit on future trips to Kona.

Great location, clean and comfortable condo!

  • 5 of 5
I was very impressed with the initial contact I had with Steve via email, because of all the relevant information he included in his emails (eg information on how to get to the condo from the airport, including map) and his willingness to assist in any way he could.
So it was of no surprise to find his condo as well presented as it was! We felt just as if we were at home. It was very clean, hospitable, roomy, quiet, well organised and we were able to completely relax and enjoy our time there. All the provisions were excellent right down to the boogie boards and beach towels and chairs that we could avail ourselves of! We loved the short stroll down to the beach and felt that White Sands Beach was the best in the Kona area.
The wrap around balcony was a lovely place to spend time and having drying racks out there was also a bonus. Having access to a washing machine and dryer (with washing powder provided) was a huge plus having been on the road for a while. The fridge/freezer is also fantastic and we were grateful to have access to Wifi.
I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this two bedroom condo to travellers, as it provided excellent value for money in a great beach location. We had a hire car and that was needed to get to shopping areas and restaurants.
All in all a lovely stay in a great place.

Very nice, roomy and convenient to the beach. Being able to walk to the beach was great and made it a more enjoyable stay. Staff at both offices were helpful and courteous. Nice having internet for the kids and washer/dryer in the condo was a big plus.Thanks for letting us stay Steve, we would recommend to others for the future.
