Kahaluu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront First Floor Studio Condo

Stay on the famous Ali'i drive next to Kona's best beach- Magic Sands! In this modern studio, you'll have unobstructed, picturesque sunset views over the Pacific every evening while the waves crash at your door. What could be better for a relaxing tropical vacation?

Sleep next to the ocean! Though it is a studio, the unit features convenient shoji doors that can create two rooms, and can accommodate as many as four. Get a good night's sleep on our new mattress or sleeper sofa, and avoid paying restaurant prices with our fully-equipped kitchen (though you can eat at the restaurant next door if you don't feel like cooking) or barbecue next to the ocean with unobstructed views of the ocean and sunset. In the afternoons, you can stretch out on the chaise lounge with a good book. Relax in the evening while watching tv or streaming from Netflix or Hulu on our new smart tv! Unit also comes with high-speed wifi, though all you need in order to relax is the sound of the surf outside the door.

About Mira Gurung

I'm an International Relations major studying in Switzerland and managing my family's lovely condo at Kona Magic Sands. When not in Switzerland or with my family in Bangkok, Thailand, I love to come to Kona, as I have grown spending summers and winters on the Big Island!

Mira Gurung purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mira Gurung chose Kahaluu

We love having a piece of property right on the ocean and would love to share our home with you! Come relax next to Magic Sands beach and enjoy the sun and sea.

What makes this condo unique

This condo enjoys the very same views as the neighboring, multi-million dollar oceanfront properties that rent for several hundred dollars per night in this quiet side of Alii Drive, away from the crowds closer to town. Magic Sand has always been our favorite beach, where we swim with the turtles early in the morning. Staying at this condo means you can meander there whenever you like, without having to struggle for one of the limited parking spaces. Another favorite activity is to walk along Alii Drive, past beautiful homes and undeveloped spaces for a brisk morning exercise.

Great Value for incredible ocean front living experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and i stayed here for 3 glorious weeks. The condo was clean, well maintained and so convenient; being next to our favorite beach allowed us to walk there (without having to look for parking), so we swam with the turtles in the morning, used the boogie boards and watched the surfers ride the wild waves every evening, from our beach chairs on the beach. While others needed to find a spot on the beach, we could watch the ocean action and awesome sunsets right from our room during the rest of the day. The unit is quiet and private, and very tastefully decorated. The Shoji doors allowed us to close off part of the room to the afternoon sun and make it seem like 2 separate spaces - cool with the ceiling fans running, no need for A/C even in 90 degree heat. Sleeping next to the waves was incredible. The owner was very responsive and helpful; we can highly recommend this unit, and will be back ourselves next year. This unit is a great value for anyone who wants to have an ocean front living experience next to the best beach (and beach action) on the island.

Definitely recommend!

Loved this place from the minute I arrived. I flew all the way from Europe to Hawaii alone- my husband was supposed to join me, but had to cancel last minute. I was worried that I wouldn’t enjoy my vacation alone, but I can honestly this condo absolutely made my stay wonderful!! I found it to be really cute and relaxing, and it was the perfect place for me as a solo traveler.

Clean, Comfortable, Unbeatable Location!

  • 5 of 5
Came to this condo with a friend and stayed for a little over a week. We found that this was a great place because we used it as a base to explore the rest of the island, or just stayed in and enjoyed the close beach and ocean views from the condo. Loved that we were able to save money by doing all of our own cooking in the kitchen… eating at restaurants becomes expensive! The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed for baking or cooking, and when we wanted to mix things up, we used the BBQ outside near the pool. We really appreciated the smart TV, where we watched Netflix movies nearly every night. We found we had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Right from our arrival after a long trip (over 15 hours), we felt right at home, and found the ocean waves really soothing at night. Of course… The sunsets from the condo were absolutely stunning every day! You simply can’t beat the fact that this condo is RIGHT on the ocean. We had stayed at another unit a few years ago, and wanted to return, but couldn’t find that condo available online. However, I am very happy that we found this cute place instead! It was clean, has a great location, and is reasonably priced. Hard to beat.

Perfect Honeymoon Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here a week for our honeymoon… Really enjoyed and this place made our time in Hawaii really special! The owner was very responsive and particularly hospitable to us, especially as it was our honeymoon. We spent practically every evening on the beach watching the sunset and every morning talking walks along Ali’i Drive. The temperature was perfect! Not at all hot, and the ocean breezes in the condo were very nice… Recommend checking out the snorkeling beach out down the road, though you should bring the snorkel equipment from the condo along, as rental prices on the beach are very high. We also arrived without a car, but found we didn’t need one for getting around Kona, as we used the shuttle, which picks you up very close to the condo… was very convenient! Can’t wait to come back!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I couldn't have imagined a better place to stay! We've visited the island many times, and this was by far our favorite vacation rental. You just can't beat the fact that it's right on the ocean, and it's cute and the perfect size for a couple! We used the BBQ almost every night and had wine watching the sunset over the ocean... You really can't get much more romantic than this. During the mornings, we'd head over to the beach next door, where we often watched turtles and surfers. We found this condo to suit our needs perfectly, from the bed beside the crashing waves, to the new tv, and the cozy feel of the place. Simply can't wait to return.

Take Your Chances

  • 1 of 5
Looking at the reviews on this site and others, this unit sounds pretty hit or miss.

We stayed in this unit in March 2014, and unfortunately our stay was “miss”.
We had emailed some questions prior to booking but did not receive a response. We ended up booking anyway because accommodations were filling up fairly quickly and we were on a specific budget. The owner eventually emailed us back after we mentioned some concerns regarding the condo price on a few other sites (we ended up finding it was cheaper elsewhere, after booking). She mentioned that these were old ads prior to her purchasing the condo. This seemed a bit odd, but we chose to take the response at face value. The only other response we received prior to our stay was an email with the key code and unit directions – after we emailed again to ask for them about a week prior to our stay.

Upon our arrival, we got to the unit about midnight (after getting our luggage and car) only to find out that the unit had not been cleaned. There were no clean sheets or towels, and all of the old laundry was still piled in the bathroom. We called the property management company via the emergency number and were told that they no longer looked after this unit because they had had issues with the owner in the past. Despite this claim, they agreed to find us somewhere else to stay for the night in another building about a 10 minute drive away and had a cleaner come by in the morning.

This was inconveniencing for us because not only were we quite tired from the night prior, we also had to spend the morning of our first day waiting to find out about our accommodation. Following that, our stay was fine (with the exception of some noisy neighbors upstairs).

We contacted the owner and explained what happened regarding the cleaning, and she said that she would be refunding us the first night stay. This never happened. We followed up a couple of times, but never did receive our money or further responses.

Overall, the unit itself is nice – not terribly fancy, but right on the ocean and at a reasonable price. We would stay this property again, but not in this unit as we believe you take your chances and may not get what you expected.
