May 2016 “An excellent compact apartment that had everything we needed and beautiful aspect on the water. You could see the coral fish through the waves!

Bed was comfortable, apartment very clean and well equipped. ”

  • 4 of 5

Love having the beach close by and hearing the waves all night. Had all the kitchen necessities and lots of extra bedding. Very clean and neat. The pool is nice to have for kids if the waves are too strong. Overall we enjoyed our stay :)

It is a few miles from Kona town but we found the trolly that stops right out front is worth the $2each. If you enjoy the beach like we do then this place is great. Some times lots of rocks other times beautiful sandy beach. Snorkeling or body surfing right next door. If your not sure yet my advise is take it if available.

Owner's Response: Yes, this popular small condo resort, Kona Magic Sands, has the best location for a beach in the Kona area as they mostly non existent here in Kailua-Kona. Just a few steps away, and the water view is just a few feet away straight out in front of you from the units. Amazing sunsets, dolphins playing, reef fish in the waves. Oceanfront pool too. Nice shady park on the other side. Great value! Mahalo!

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

This condo has a beautiful view from the indoor/outdoor lanai. It's a bit on the older side, but still clean and very affordable. It was a great place to stay for my husband and I. A short drive to town and all of the restaurants. It was really nice to fall asleep to the crashing waves every night. The owners were prompt to get back to me with any questions I had. If you want a great deal on an oceanfront condo, I would definitely recommend.

Great Stay on the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation spent here! Rooms are clean and well kept. Very nice owners who are easy to contact. For non-drivers, there is a $2 shuttle you can take for easy access to sites up and down Ali'i Drive. Great BBQ for grilling fresh fish while watching the ocean waves. Excellent beach next door which provides easy access for swimming and snorkeling.

Ocean Front Condo with Beach and Park. Great Snorkeling and Boogie Boarding!

  • 5 of 5

The place was well kept with all the amenities needed. I have actually stayed here several times now and it has only gotten better. Love hearing the waves crash putting me to sleep at night and waking up to the sound of the waves and the beautiful view right on the water. Magic Sands Beach (La A'Loa Beach) is right next door on one side of the condos and a nice park on the other. Or there is the pool right behind the sea wall. It is a beautiful place.

Great view.

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of January 2013 in this beautiful condo. The view from the lanai is fabulous - ocean waves crashing against the seawall, boats and whales passing by. One can hear the crashing of the waves - sometimes loud if waves are high, otherwise gentle, soothing. This ground floor condo is quite spacious and easy to access. Wi-Fi worked well. Minor problems were dealt with quickly and pleasantly. On weekends we saw a drum circle and hula dancers practice in the park next door. There is some noise from passing motor scooters and busses. Great condo for a great price!
