ABSOLUTE OCEANFRONT SUITE WITH SPECTACULAR KONA SUNSETS

Kailua Kona Studio Rental Photos and Description

Large oceanfront studio with an extended lanai, sleeps 2

Kona Magic Sands is nestled between Magic Sands (La'Aloa) beach and Pahoehoe Beach Park. The unit was fully gutted and remodeled in June 2011.

As you open the front door and step inside the unit, you realize how clean and modern the unit is. You walk to the glass wall and open the doors to the lanai. You step outside and hear the ocean, you see the waves and the colorful fish swimming...maybe you see a few turtles swimming next to some snorkelers. You look at the 180 degrees of ocean at your feet and you realize that this is why you rented this unit. You sit outside at the dining table or enjoy a cold drink at the bar table/chairs as you watch the sunset with camera in hand. The palm trees dance with the tradewinds and you decide to sleep with the lanai doors open and screen doors closed so that you can hear the ocean.

The next morning, you grind your Kona coffee and brew a fresh pot and enjoy another day in paradise. You spot more colorful fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and in the winter, humpback whales; you might decide to get to see them up close and go snorkel/swim at the beach next door.

For dinner and after a day of sighseeing, you grill your dinner on the gas BBQ while you take a dip in the pool. You may choose to eat on the dining tables under the pavillion. At night, the quiet central air conditionner and stainless steel modern ceiling fans keep you cool. The updated kitchen with the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances help you create great frozen drinks or delicious dinners. Dimmable track lighting and under cabinet lights set the mood for an enjoyable evening. Large flat screen TV, in-wall speakers, state of the art receiver/DVD/CD player, iPod plug/play, cable TV, new furniture, bedding, towels, etc. add to your comfort. You can even do your laundry in the unit's washer and dryer and go home with clean clothes. There is a free assigned parking stall near the entrance to the condo, so you never have to look for a parking spot.

We are located on the famous Alii drive, where you can go for a walk/run. There is a public bus that stops in front of the condo and goes between the Kailua Pier (less than 4 miles away) and Keahou shopping center (2 miles away). Kailua town offers many restaurants/bars, and stores for shopping. Keohou has a few restaurants, a supermarket, drug store, cinemas, book store and more.

Enjoy hanging out at the beach or watch the hula dancers practice their routines in the park. Keahou offers daily free Hawaiian cultural activities, including ukulele lessons, making flower leis or watching a hula performances.

Whatever you do, you will have a great time on the Big Island.

P.S. If you have to combine work and play, we just had our own Wifi installed in July 2012.

“Kona Magic Sands 303”

5 of 5 starsReviewed July 26, 2013



Paradise on a budget!



I love the Big Island and especially Kona; fell in love with it 40 years ago on my honeymoon. I dive and for many years dove with Dive Makai, but unfortunately the original family owned business was bought out by a mainlander who drove it into the ground. I have tried Jacks and they are good but I would also highly recommend Big Island Divers (same dive sites for less).I personally like to rent condos and have tried a variety of properties over the years. I have stayed at Kona Magic Sands a couple of times before and always liked the location. There aren’t a lot of beaches in Kona and this property is right next door to one of the nicest ones. This year I splurged and rented one of them (Unit 303). It is on the top, 3rd, floor so you have a large open lanai and you’re practically standing over the ocean. Sitting out on the lanai you can watch dolphins and turtles at almost any time. The constant surf provides a pleasant backdrop and you can see an amazing amount of reef fish just by looking down into the water, we call it porch diving.

There is large table and umbrella for al fresco dining, a lounge chair and some other seating out there so it is all very comfortable.

The unit inside is very nice, everything looks new. It is kind of laid out like a large hotel suite, very roomy. My wife really really liked the place (she has not always appreciated some of my previous choices).

There is a big screen TV, which I never turned on, but I did use the WiFi all the time which was pretty fast (looks like a cable modem)

The kitchen appliances, like everything else, looked new and we seemed to find everything we needed. We brought our Costco card and packed the fridge, so we pretty much ate in, or packed the fridge, so we pretty much ate in, or packed lunches to go most of the time. The farmers market is on Wednesdays and great place to get local food cheap. BTW the fish at Costco is really good but I think the best fish can be bought at Safeway which is near the local Walmart.

There is a restaurant on the property, although I didn't try it this trip. Tried it years ago and it was okay but it looks like it is under new management now. Something to try next year.

There was a washer/dryer in the unit which as divers came is real handy; because after a dive almost everything comes back wet.

Communication with the owner was quick and easy. My wife wants to re-rent the unit.

We have been visiting Kailua-Kona for the past 17 years and finally decided to buy at KMS where we always stayed. The third floor unit had everything that we wanted for. So we bought it in 2010, gutted and remodeled the place to our liking. We hope you enjoy your stay and make many memories like we have. Kona is paradise for us and we are glad that we can share it with you. Aloha!

Sonia purchased this studio in 2010

We love the location. We have stayed in KMS every time that we visited the Big Island. We have done so for the past 16 years. We enjoy the beach next door and the fact that there is so much to do here or just hang out and relax.

The location can't be beat. The view from the lanai, the fish and turtles, the sunsets! You have to see it to believe it.

AMAZING STAY AT KONA MAGIC SANDS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this unit from April 11th - 17th and I have nothing but good things to say. The unit was well appointed, spacious and very clean. Great location only a few minutes drive from restaurants and shops. Was also incredibly conveninet being located directly next to a fantastic beach. The large uncovered deck was sunny all day and as it is West facing, we watched some beautiful sunsets. The owners were also great to deal with. I highly recommend renting this unit.

WOW!! A FANTASTIC VIEW AND VACATION HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
After a long trip from the East Coast we were contemplating stopping for dinner on the way into Kona but decided to go straight to the condo. Within one hour of our arrival we saw a whale breaching and a beautiful sunset. This home is beautifully decorated with all the necessary amenities. The bed was extremely comfortable and we loved the glass block and tile. Sonia provided a great list of suggested restaurants, grocery stores, and things to do. We made an effort to do as many as we could and they were spot on. Each night we tried to get back for the sunset and made most. It felt like coming home every night. This location is terrific. We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our 25th anniversary! Mahalo Sonia and Jerry!!

MAGIC SANDS

  • 5 of 5
Truly enjoy it and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. The open lanai truly caps it off. Place is very clean and owner always responsive. While we are there, we travel all over and hit beaches and drive different roads to see the island. The unit is very clean and well maintained. My favorite place on the island - can't get any closer to the water.
