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.

Good space, easy

  • 2 of 5

The condo itself was spacious and had a lovely wrap around deck. The kitchen was well stocked. There was lots of beach chairs, cooler, pail and shovel for the kids, towels , snorkel gear etc for the beach. The pool was great except it closed down for two days for maintenance while we were there . This would have been nice to know in advance of our stay.

The biggest draw back of this condo was, even though it was very clean when we got there, we discovered it had cockroaches. There was a plan to spray two days after we left so this was going to be addressed.

The beach across the road was beautiful although it was very rough and rocky while we were there. There is a great snorkel beach one mile south. Kona is easy to get to but a busy touristy town. Easy access to the highway.

A Great time in Kona

  • 4 of 5

Older place but very comfortable and with a huge Lanai. Good parking and close to everything on Alii and near the Keauhou shopping center. Would have been nice to know our toddlers were not allowed in the pool, even with swimming diapers per the onsite manager. But all in all had a good stay and would go back again!

The property was very nice, very user friendly.

  • 4 of 5

Tenants and guests were lovely, friendly. The office manager was congenial but not able to help much regarding condo requests. A second key for the condo and for the gate to the pool would have been helpful . Our condo was spacious and comfortable but when we arrived it was not very clean. The balcony furniture needed to be covered with a towel if we wished to sit outside. Inside, the carpeting is old, and I did need to clean up. Overall, condo was a bit more dated that we expected.

Amenities in the condo were superb, lots of towels, bedding, supplies, very nice.

We missed a toaster in the kitchen . A cleanup of inside cupboards in the future is a suggestion to get rid of musty odor. The fridge and generous ice supply was much appreciated as was the washer/dryer.

The internet was extremely slow in the condo, we were not used of that. Overall, we had a superb time, loved our time spent.

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.
