Overview

Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Studio condo, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 max). Renovated for modern conveniences.

Completely renovated condo. One of the few air-conditioned units. Upgraded cabinets, tile floor, enlarged shower, new kitchen & appliances, new furniture, linens, large flat screen TV. Oceanfront on famous Alii Drive where Ironman is held annually (we cheer them on as they run by). We've watched whales breach from our condo! Watch spinner dolphins over breakfast, play in surf w/ family of sea turtles, or mingle w/ local surfers. All without loading the car and searching for a beach, everything you need right at home.

We vacationed here in this small, lovely, and quiet OCEANFRONT complex and loved it so much we wanted to own a piece of this paradise on earth.

We have a white sand beach to our left, a park with giant banyan trees to the right and the rhythm of the surf right outside all day, all night. Keep the sliding glass doors open for the marine sights, sounds, and lovely breezes courtesy of the trade winds on the Kona side of the Big Island.

AC is available, if the tradewinds aren't enough for you. New beach chairs and umbrella. Booogie boards and snorkel equipment for your use.

So come and share with us our OCEANFRONT (not just ocean 'view') studio condo. We hope you will love and enjoy it as much as we do! We do have an online contact; phone numbers available in the condo.

And the complex has an OCEANFRONT POOL, OCEANFRONT bbq area, hose to wash off car, and outdoor shower to wash off sand and salt. Kona Magic Sands definitely has the 'aloha' attitude!

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Any closer to the ocean you would be in it! We just fell in love with this condo the minute we walked in and saw the wall of glass with the ocean waves right there in our faces! Hearing the ocean waves pounding on the shoreline is so wonderful!! So relaxing! Absolutely mesmerizing! And right from our own condo we see whales, spinner dolphins, and schools of bright yellow fish (you get the idea)! Come see for yourself.

Yeah, take the time to visit the volcano or see the snow at the summit of Mauna Kea. Or maybe just spend the whole time here at Magic Sands snorkeling, swimming, watching surfers, and enjoying the aloha sunsets. You really don't have to leave at all.

Be sure to check all the guidebooks. Kona Magic Sands gets great reviews!! AND YOU DON'T NEED TO DRIVE TO THE BEACH! IT'S NEXT DOOR!

AND (like the guidebooks recommend) it's on the 3rd floor for the most privacy and the best possible views of all the ocean 'activities'!

REMEMBER: Check your flight. Check our calendar. and then e-mail or call me with questions, dates, anything. . .well, almost anything.

Tax ID# W87954467-01

About Denise

As residents of AZ, we were looking for an escape from the heat. Kona is perfect for us to escape to. We love the Big Island and Kona Magic Sands is just far enough away from tourist attractions in town but it's close enough for us to pop into town for coffee, a burger, ocean-side dining, shopping, or live music. Mostly, we just enjoy the simple pleasures -- the lull of the ocean, the tradewinds, the Aloha spirit. We already feel 10 years younger here.

Denise purchased this condo in 2011

Why Denise chose Kona Coast

We searched the kona coast for a retirement condo. Yes, there are bigger condos, but we found none with a white sand beach next door and a beautiful green park on the other side with a surf so close. Location is everything. We love to take coffee to the beach at sunrise and watch surfers enjoy the breaks.

What makes this condo unique

A/C, COMPLETELY RENOVATED, UNOBSTRUCTED 180 degree OCEANFRONT & SUNSET VIEWS. Our condo is not only recently updated,, but also offers air conditioning. Not all condos in this complex offer A/C. This could be important on a hot & humid day. Also, our unit is top floor center of the building, so no external lanais block your views of the beach, the surf, whales, dolphins, boats, fish, turtles and the awesome sunsets.

Great stay with a breath taking view!

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the amazing views that this condo offers. You are directly facing the ocean and right on the white sand beach lined with palm trees. The amenities and furnishings were modern and updated. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to make a nice dinner, a nice change from having to eat out. I was so excited to see dolphins right outside our window and every morning there was a school of fish. It is truly the best location! There is so much to do close by, whether it be snorkeling tours, night dives with the manta rays, or grabbing some mai tais at the local resorts. Staying here was an amazing experience and I can't wait to come back!

Awesome Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with these accommodations - they were all new and updated furnishings, the view was simply spectacular from the open window. The unit was extremely clean, and it was right next to the beach. One note of caution was the beach next door - while it was very nice my wife found out the hard way that one can be banged about on the rocks underneath if caught up in the surf on some days. That being said we had the best snorkelling on the island right in front of the room we stayed. Turtles and dolphins every day!

We hope to return to this place if at all possible!

Owner's Response: Aloha and mahalo for your comments. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at our renovated condo. Yes guests, please respect the ocean. Some days she's very calm and snorkeling right in front of the condo is the best, other days she's wild and you should enjoy watching local surfers have a lot of fun! Hawaii is a beautiful place to be enjoyed and respected.

Wonderful stay - Definately Recommend it

  • 5 of 5

We were there during the Ironman week. The unit is very well equipped with snorkel, boogie boards, beach chairs and beach towels. Very clean small studio. The murphy bed squeaks a little and the pillows during my stay were not the best. However through my communication with the owners the pillows were in the plan for an upgrade so I am sure anyone who will visit this studio after me, will enjoy better sleep on way better pillows.

The unit has an amazing ocean view and the bed is just next to the shore where the waves break. It can be quite noisy. However, we simply closed the windows and turn the AC on with works is magic. Yes, this unit has AC and it works very well at night. The AC is not loud and puts the unit into the proper temperature. Magic sands beach is just next to the condo, however the Kona village is 3 miles walk which we didn't mind and it was good to have a bit of exercise. During the Ironman run we set ourselves on the street using the beach chairs from the condo, we got beer, wine and we were cheering to the runners. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Denise

Kona Magic Sands in March

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was everything we had hoped for. It was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was so nice to have. It was stocked with plenty of linens and kitchen utensils. The view is fabulous. The waves were definitely audible but it did not bother us. Denise was a pleasure to work with and made sure we had all the information we needed.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in this condo for seven weeks. There was nothing we wanted for. The storage was amazing and the kitchen well equipped. The surf lulled us to sleep. We saw any, many whales and dolphins and enjoyed the adjacent park and beach. The sunsets were spectacular. You will definitely enjoy this condo.
