It’s a short walk to three of the best beaches in Kona. The first is White sands beach which the locals call Magic Sands swimming, boogie boarding, and snorkeling in the clear blue water are a must... On the south end of the Beach Park is a secluded cove that is perfect for snorkeling or shore entry scuba diving with volcano swim thru tubes.
In the center of the Park is an ancient Hawaiian Heiau (spiritual place).
Short Walk south is the famous snorkeling beach, Kahaluu. Kahaluu offers easy access to the undersea population of green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish of every description.
Gentle waves on the far side are great for easy surfing, with a surf shop across the street if you need lessons.
After a glorious day in the sun, it is just a short stroll back to White Sands Beach to watch a spectacular romantic Kona sunset or Should you tire of the ocean water or when you just want to relax in the sun, away from the beach.
Watch the sunset each evening from the comfort of your lounge chair, mai-tai in hand, on the lanai. If you get lucky, you may see the famous green flash.
In the living room you will find a huge custom sofa that swallows you up! It’s so comfortable you may not want to get out!

Since this picture, we are much much older, we have a 5 yr old and 7 yr old now! Both made in Hawaii. We had been coming to Hawaii for 7 years before moving here full time with our family a few years ago.
Dana purchased this house in 2007
We love being close to the beach. The area is very kid friendly. We can walk to the beach in 5 minutes and when the kids get tired, be back home quickly. Magic Sands beach is a good family beach.
The house is very open and airy. It has a great Hawaiian feel.
Amazing stay. The house is really close to a sandy beach. The baby gear was very helpful - especially the two strollers. Kitchen is well equipped and we ate almost all of our meals here. Good for a big family get-togethers. Hosts were very helpful and responsive to a any questions we had.
VRBO initial survey question is not fair or satisfactory. Now onto the review. We'll try to be balanced in our comments. Good location, with easy access to shopping plus beaches. Also good access to highways for tours or excursions. Unique home plan with for us. We were a group of 8 with 2 kids 4 and under. Room to keep everyone happy. Tons of beach toys were made available for use by the guests. The hosts Dana and Joe were super helpful. We had a challenge with hot water and one text message had Joe promptly fixing the issue. They provided an info package that was very helpful. The ONLY thing that held us back from giving a higher rating was in our opinion, the property could a bit of a freshening up as well as a deep cleaning. To be fair this was our 1st trip to the big island so we may be ignorant to what one must pay to get "fresh and clean or like new". The place was not dirty but a good carpet and upholstery clean would be an assett in our groups' opinion. Thanks for your hospitality.
This house worked perfectly for our group of eight--my parents, brother, my husband and me, our two adult kids, and our son's girlfriend. There is a full "house" on the upper floor with a nice bedroom and bathroom, and then all of the other rooms are almost like motel rooms. Each has its own bathroom, is separate from the other rooms, and can be locked. We spent most of our time there in the very large screened porch that had a table that could seat at least ten, plus there were a few other chairs.
The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because there were a few toilet overflowing issues, but this may just be how the plumbing is everywhere there. None of it was a big problem.
We wished we had been a little closer to a beach and town sometimes, but it is in a fairly convenient location. It is a 10-15 minute drive to Kailua-Kona downtown, depending on traffic. There are a couple beaches fairly nearby, but they always seemed crowded, and for our group they weren't really walking distance. We branched out and found some fabulous beaches both north and south on the west coast.
I highly recommend a family getaway here!
The house is designed to satisfy different requirement, from one family to 15 persons group, like us. It is closed to the Magic Sands Beach, whose sands are soft and white. We enjoyed staying at the house. It was easy to enter and Dana and Joe were ready to offer their help. Thanks for give us 1 more hours to collect our stuffs. They are really nice!
We recently spent a week in this Kailua-Kona house with 18 people - 9 adults and 9 kids ranging in age from 3 months to 12 years old. The location is great, right in the heart of everything - and there was plenty of space for everyone to hang out alone or together. The inside living room has a huge couch (big enough for 9 children plus a couple of adults!) and the outside dining table in the screened in porch was a good place for communal meals. The owners were so great and very responsive to emails. They were helpful in making sure we had everything we needed for our stay, including two pack and plays, a high chair, lifejackets for children.
The house was well stocked with spices in the kitchen and fridge, beach toys (and a whole bucket of water shoes), beach towels.
A few things you should know, especially if traveling with a wide age range of people like we were:
1. The six bedrooms are separated on two floors with three rooms on each floor. The bedrooms on the ground floor can only be accessed from an outside door, which can be a concern if you have little ones. Two of the three bedrooms upstairs are also accessed by external doors, but at least these are within the lockable screened-in-porch area. There is only one bedroom that adjoins the kitchen/living room.
2. Though there are screens on the windows there is no glass, which makes sound an issue if you have people getting up and going to sleep at different times. The upstairs back bedrooms back on to the pool so any late or early pool noise would be an issue if someone is sleeping. Also, the bedroom attached to the upstairs living room is completely open at the top so absolutely not soundproof at all.
3. The back bedrooms can get really hot, even with all fans going. They don't get access to the night time breeze like the front bedrooms do.
4. The pool is great for kids because it's shallow, but for adults consider it more of a dip pool.
5. The house is in a great location however between Kahalu'u Beach and Magic Sands. But I would not consider it walking distance to Kahalu'u with kids, and with toddlers/preschoolers we didn't walk to Magic Sands either...not with all our beach gear in tow!
Overall, we had a great week on the Big Island. There was so much to see and do we couldn't get it all in. The night manta snorkel/dive is a must do. We also chartered a boat for a morning with the dolphins/snorkeling. Mahalo!!
My family of 18 had the time of our lives. The house met all of our needs and the owners are lovely. The location of the house is close to beaches, restaurants, and recreation.
