Overview

Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Spend your vacation in Paradise! Our guests enjoy the convenience of the centrally located White Sands Village Condominiums on famous Alii Drive in Kailua Kona. We are four miles south of Kailua Bay and two miles north of Keahou.

White Sands Village is the perfect home base for your Hawaiian vacation, located directly across the street from White Sands (Magic Sands) Beach. It is the premier boogie boarding beach in Kona. Kahalu’u State Park (Snorkel Beach) is a mile down the road. Here, you can view hundreds of species of tropical fish and swim with giant green sea turtles.

If you would like to learn how to surf, there is also great surfing near Kahalu’u. Surfing lessons are available for beginners. For scuba divers, some of the best shore dives are located along Alii Drive near White Sands. Several dive boats are also available to take you out for longer dives. Don’t miss the Manta Ray snorkel/scuba charter. And…if you just want to sit on the beach, catch some rays, read a book, and listen to the surf, you can do that at White Sands too!

If you are a golfer, the Kona Country Club is located two miles down Alii Drive. The newly renovated 18-hole Ocean Course is in natural settings along the Pacific Ocean. The views are unbelievable. Several other magnificent golf courses are within a 40 minute drive of White Sands Village.

The White Sands Village Condominium features a swimming pool, spa, tennis courts, covered cabana with barbecue grills and a picnic area.

Our unit is located on the top floor in the back of the complex, away from the traffic noise. You will enjoy beautiful ocean views from our 27 foot lanai. Watch the cruise ships in the harbor. Sip your favorite beverage and watch the sun set over the Pacific. Each year from late December to early May, whales migrate to Hawaiian waters. They are a sight to see, along with the playful spinner dolphins.

Our unit features two bedrooms and two full baths. In addition, there is a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living area, and dining room. Master bedroom has a king size bed, second bedroom has two twins making this a perfect venue for one or two couples or small family groups. The unit is tastefully decorated in Hawaiian décor. This 1100 square foot condominium is perfect for vacations and extended stays. There is ample privacy for you and your family or friends.You will feel this is your home away from home.

Amenities include high speed internet, and a large flat screen cable TV and BluRay. The unit also includes a washer and dryer so all you need to pack is your bathing suit and a pair of shorts. We have Reserved parking located close to an elevator so you don’t have to worry about a long walk from your car to the unit. You can stay cool in the central air conditioning or open the windows and enjoy the ocean breeze. You will be comfortable whether you choose to relax in the living room or on the lanai.

Additional activities in and around Kailua-Kona include kayaking, sunset cruises, whale watching, parasailing, deep sea fishing, diving, jet skiing, hiking, theater, movies, shopping, and restaurants.

Longer drives will take you to Kilauea Volcano, Mauna Kea Observatories, Waipio Valley, Akaka and Umauma Waterfalls, Dolphin Qwest, Botanical Gardens, Black and Green Sand Beaches, Waimea and Parker Ranch, Ancient Hawaiian Fishponds, Hawaiian Petroglyphs, Coffee Farms, Captain Cook Monument, and Historic Hilo town.

About Debbi Rousey

We are three sisters that call ourselves the 'Alii Wahinies'

Our parents bought this condo in the 80's. In 2008 we remodeled and decided to let others enjoy too!

Why Debbi Rousey chose Kona Coast

We love this location for the fact that it has the beach so close, the snorkel beach 'Kahaluu' is just down the road less than a mile and town is only 4 miles away. The convenience is perfect

A Real Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (we have two teenagers) decided to spend one week during March spring break in Kona and after much research we decided to stay at this condo. This condo was the best decision we made!

The home (it really felt like a home rather than a rental!) is exactly like the photos - Hawaiian themed furniture and décor. It really made for a relaxing day after being out. Contrary to what someone else wrote, the mattresses and all the furniture were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with spices, cooking items, everything you could ever need. In fact the condo had items I never expected - need a sewing kit or glue to fix something - it's all there. The lanai was the most memorable and where we hung out the most – it had great furniture to relax and enjoy the wonderful breeze. It faces the ocean so you can see boats heading out each morning, listen to the birds and watch and hear the waves. The condo has all the beach gear you need (chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach towels). The owners were great – always responding quickly whenever we had a question.

The location was great - we could walk to the White Sands beach to enjoy the sunset with the locals. The kids enjoyed snorkeling at Kahaluu beach park – a 5 minute drive away. Very easy to get to all parts of the island like Volcano park, Saddle Drive, and the Northern part of the island.

This home was the icing on the cake for our vacation. Highly, highly recommended.

Location but some items

  • 4 of 5

The location of this condo is ideal. Directly across the street from a beautiful beach(note waves can be a bit aggressive) and very close to town as well as more moderate priced dining and grocery.

The kitchen is very well stocked with all you would ever need, plus a few remnants of dry and cold items. The added bonus of a few coolers, snorkeling items and many beach towels was wonderful.

The décor is lovely, with a large patio and functional condo lay out.

Unfortunately we did not find the space to be very "comfortable". The mattresses throughout were not great. As an example in the master due to think egg crate on top we were not able to sleep near one another- you were pulled to the outside of the bed. As well the couches although adorable, were really stiff and scratchy. Although you do not go to Kona to hang out in bed or a living room it was kind of a bummer after a day exploring or swimming to not be able to relax.

Also, as an aside I was disappointed to find a sign attached to dryer saying it was not working. I encouraged limited packing and trying to dry clothing in the damp weather was a bit frustrating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our condo Allyson, I am sorry for the inconvenience regarding the dryer. The part was not readily available and had to ordered by the repair man, the Hawaiian islands often don't have items needed in stock.... Just part of being on an island... As far as the beds we have never heard this but will address immediately. Over all sounds like you had a great time and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Aloha, Alii Wahinies

Vacation of a life time!

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you enough how wonderful this condo was! It was modern, clean, comfortable, and Hawaiian all at the same time. We had such a great time swimming in the pool or at the White Sands beach, driving to the north, south, and east sides of the island. Having the Kona coast as our home base was just perfect. We did an ATV ride to the Kings' bath water fall, camping at the Volcanoes National park, sunset cruise, snorkeling at several beaches, luau, and petroglyph viewing. Everything was great fun, the food was more delicious, the air smelled better, and we didn't mind when it rained - as it was warm and appreciated. If we could afford to go back here annually, we would! Thanks Debbie for setting us up! We will definitely recommend your condo to all of our friends!

Your every need, your every wish!

  • 5 of 5

Totally have to say ditto to the March 2014 review. Every time I even thought, "Gee, I wish I had this..." I just opened a cabinet or a closet and there it was! Best stocked VRBO ever. Kitchen, beach and pool accessories, towels and linens - it is all there. Even things I didn't know I needed - like a whole basket of island info magazines and books. Also the best location in Kona. Even though it was hard to leave the lanai each morning, we sat at the Magic Sands beach across the street and walked to Kahalu'u Beach for amazing snorkeling (one mile, 20 minute stroll). Also made the short drive to town for great dinners and sunset watching. Also scuba diving with both Jack's and Kona Honu was great. The biggest bonus surprise when we got there...all the carpet has been replaced with beautiful laminate hardwood. NO CARPET anywhere...so nice for a beach vacation! Pictures here don't include many upgrades we found in the unit. Owners obviously always updating and improving. Mahalo for an amazing seamless vacation. Almost hate to let the word out, as we will be back.

AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect find!! Our family spent 10 fabulous days in this condo over spring break and we could not have asked for anything better. The unit was EXACTLY like the photos on the internet so beautilfully decorated, clean and stocked with everything one could possibly need. There was a washer / dryer and full kitchen with every amenity of home making it easy for us to prepare our meals with plenty of room to spread out. The boogie boards, coolers, towels, beach chairs and snorkle gear was a huge bonus! We spent a lot of time on the lanai enjoying our coffee or cocktails playing cards and listening to the sounds of the waves, birds and the soothing rustle of the palm trees. The most beautiful little beach was only minutes from the condo and we spent many hours playing in the sand and waves and of course did our fair share of snorkling. The pool, hot tub and tennis courts were all in excellant condition and everyone on site working was so helpful and pleasant. We have two teenage daughters who were thrilled to have the use of their own bathroom and their own beds!! The master bedroom had a very comfortable king bed and the ensuite was fantastic. We were only 15 minutes from town by car and frequently wandered the markets and took in the local sights and flavors. With on site covered numbered parking stalls we never worried about finding parking and even felt safe enough to leave the roof down on our rental jeep. The whole rental process from start to finish was so easy and seemless. The condo had a wonderful binder full of local information, suggestions and highlights which we took in most. The directions & instructions that were sent were so easy to follow, we had not one issue finding & getting into the condo in the dark late at night!! The condo was amazing, the location was amazing and views were amazing!! Debi has done a wonderful job on this condo truely making it a home away from home and I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Kona I miss the sunsets already and can't wait to go back and visit paradise again soon. Thank you again for making this an amazing holiday for our family

Title is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, condo was very well supplied with everything a person would need. The decor is wonderful. Quiet and what the owners do not tell in their info is that you have a view of the ocean from the lanei.
