About The Owner

Aloha Ted & Darlene Carson

We are true Islanders from growing up in Victoria B.C.on Vancouver Island . We love the ocean, we have a water front home in Nanaimo and a condo on the beach .We are from west coast marine climate, we love the fact that Kona only gets 8 to 10 inches of rain annually. If we get home sick we can always go to the hills behind Hilo.We also like the average temperatures 81 to 87 unlike the desert extremes 67 January to 107 July. Love the trade winds and walks along Alii drive. We look forward to being your HOSTS. Mahalo Ted & Darlene

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

The unit 314 has been tastefully updated with antique furniture. It's 3 miles South of the main Kona strip which I regard as a good thing. But it is still on Alii Drive for nice morning or evening peaceful walks. Yet you are only minutes away from town.It has a great location right next to the ocean. You couldn't be closer without being in it. The view on this total glass corner unit really makes it and allows for fabulous sunset views. This unit has a large WOW factor.

What makes this condo unique

The size of the condo. Most of the condos at Kona Magic Sands are 400 sq ft ours is 660 sq ft. The Lani's is enclosed, so you can sit at your table with the glass doors open and see and hear the waves. You also wake up in the morning and sit up in bed and see the ocean. It's amazing.Dophins and Whales are often seen right out in the ocean from your unit.

It's right on Magic Sands Beach, which is a great beach. There aren't a ton of swimming beaches right in Kona and this one is one of the best. Some of the best boogie boarding and snorkeling on the Island. 314 is on the 3rd floor with extra great views and no street noise. It is air conditioned ,has a spa tub and numbered parking. Separate Wifi with network cable ports,road runner Time Warner Cable

The property is clean, well maintained and has a breathtaking view.

  • 5 of 5

The building is an older one, but is well maintained. The condo has been renovated and has a nice kitchen that is stocked with everything that you would need. I was impressed with the other supplies such as beach towels, boogie boards and snorkeling gear. The condo is very light and it is all about the view of the ocean! You will enjoy the sound of the waves.

It has a great location, right next to a beautiful beach. The boogie boarding at Magic Sands is not for the faint of heart, but it is doable for a quick learner. I liked the location of the condo on Alii Drive, just out of the main town of Kailua-Kona and close to the State Park with its amazing snorkeling.

We would definitely go back for another stay at the Kona Magic Sands, #314!

The view is absolutely stunning and brilliant. Ceiling to floor windows on two sides overlook the ocean and adjacent park. The waves loudly crash right outside of the condo and you can easily hear the surf from every point inside. Fabulous way to fall asleep! The inside of the unit is a very open floor plan, which allows for maximum light throughout and maximum views whether you are sitting in the living room, lying on the bed, or sitting in the dining room. The lanai is perfectly situated for maximum viewing of the sunset (at least in late April). Condo has been smartly updated recently and is neat and clean. There is an amble supply of towels, bath towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and even a snorkel mask or two. Kitchen is well stocked with appliances and cooking equipment and utensils and there is a dishwasher for easy clean if you decide to bring your own food & spices (Ted provides salt & pepper) and cook. Absolutely beautiful place and very convenient two minute walk to White Sands Beach for sunbathing or playing in the waves. A handful of people snorkeled from the beach in front of the condo. Did not do so myself, but you can see schools of yellow fish in the surf from the condo, so I presume the snorkeling is halfway decent. Very relaxing and we were very happy with this choice.

Kona heaven

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the old exterior of the building fool you. The condo is very up to date inside, with granite countertops, ceiling fans, and a very comfortable bed. But the all-glass walls on two side of this spacious apartment outshine any other features. You could not be this close to the beautiful crashing waves in any million dollar condo anywhere! You could spend your whole vacation just watching the colorful fish in the waves right from your condo! The lovely park next door is also an entertaining people watching spot. And the fragrant flowers all along Alii drive make morning walks delightful. We also enjoyed watching the bold surfers from our balconies. The best snorkeling beach is a half-mile down the road. Enjoy the free Kona coffee at Splashers Grill in Kona with breakfast. It's all good!

Owner's Response: I couldn't believe this property when I first purchased it. Your kind words come very close to describing it. When I went in with the real estate agent . I said "WOW" you are not supposed to do that when you are about to purchase a property. Kona Magic Sands is a Classic . Magic Magic ! Mahalo Ted

Stunning views!

  • 4 of 5

Views from 2 sides! Floor to ceiling glass walls in the corner unit give great views of the park, ocean and beach. Waves crashing is amazing. Clean, spacious and updated condo with great parking and oceanside pool. The owner even has cooler, boogie boards, noodles, and beach chairs for your use!

as advertised

  • 4 of 5

The property was everything as advertised. It was great views and sea life to see. Saw a lot more whales then we expected. The location was good too. Condo was well stocked and very comfortable. The only issues we had were the lack of window covering on north window allowing lots of headlights to shine in. Also we loved hearing the waves at night but someone kept smoking below us and the smoke came into the room. I think it was a permanent resident since they new were to stay out of sight on their lanai. All in al,l a great place for the money.
