About Property Manager
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
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Property Manager chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
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

Great views, very clean condo. Spacious and well stocked for a beach outting. The view is stunning, the location is great. Would definitively recommend.
Location is excellent, price is reasonable.
This was our third time staying at Kona Magic Sands but our first time in this unit. My husband is self-employed and always spends a few hours each morning “working”. WiFi was fine the entire 2 wks we were there. The added space in this corner unit made a big difference for us in terms of comfort. The bed was comfortable for us, not too soft, not too hard. The bathroom was neat and clean. Water pressure for showering could be better but that could be something common with all the units. Plenty of towels! The kitchen is well appointed & had everything we needed to cook, something we did quite often during our 2 wk stay. (Although I might advise the owner to replace the 2 Teflon cooking pots as these have scratches probably as a result of someone using a metal spoon/fork.) All in all, I would stay here again. This is a corner unit with a park adjacent to it. The park was busy on the weekends but not noisy. Weekdays were quiet with either hula lessons, yoga classes. No complaints there. The owner was helpful and always responded in a timely manner.
This is reasonably priced for its location. Remember, the sunset is just as beautiful here as it is at the Waikoloa Resort.
I will be in the Hawaiian Islands soon. Thanks for heads up on the Pots.Of all my properties I don't get to stay in 314 often.Pretty much booked , even now December and January and February of 2019 are booked.I find a lot of Canadians are not going to Mexico anymore.
We enjoyed our 4 nights in this condo and the fun of just sitting and enjoying the surf, spinner dolphins and whales. The mirrors in the place took some getting used to but they did feel like they extended the view and light. It is amazing how loud the surf can be and I have to admit that it was good to get out and about during the day just to give my ears a break from the sound!
We had one issue with some dirty cookware but after an email to the owner he showed up with new cookware for us.. truly above and beyond what we expected!
We would definitely consider staying here again if we make it back to the area.
Great People ! The winter Surf was really high at times this year. Great to watch from the beach right beside the Condo. Please return
Stunning ocean view with beautiful sunsets rocked by the sound of the waves.
Big windows doors floor to ceiling, ocean side and park side. No need of AC, nice breeze with windows open. Nice decoration, bedding sheet so soft. Doesn’t feel like a rent place more like borrowing the condo from a friend.
Nice beach with life guards next to condo. Beach is a little small and easily crowded but you don't have to drive and hustle to park. Note some days the waves can be real rough.
Best snorkeling ever just in front of condo. Water is clear and so many different fish so close it is like being at the aquarium. Even saw a big turtle swimming to the beach. We also went snorkeling at Molokini Maui but preferred MagicSand all the fish are closer. Condo well equipped only missing icepack and cooler for day trip.
You need a car to go around i.e. shopping. Nothing at walking distance. Public bicycle rental available at beach parking.
Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Thank You for a very nice review. The coolers are a riot. They come and they go. I buy them ,guests buy them and leave them when they depart.They seem to sprout legs and walk or are forgotten on the beach. It should also be noted that the microwave is also a convection/microwave.Please return.
Magic Sands 314
Magic Sands continues to be the premier 'on the ocean' condominium. Stayed here many times and #314 is the best unit, period.
The view is to die for. The ocean is literally at your feet and we could see yellow tangs in the water. The sound of the surf almost shook the room at times. Very relaxing. Close to magic sands beach and Kahaluu if you like to snorkel. Kahaluu second only to 2 step to snorkel. This is our 4th trip to Kona and it is my favorite place to date. The only place we have stayed that I could just hang around and enjoy. The extra view from the glass side made it seem like you could see forever in multiple directions. Condo is well cared for and enough wind that there were no mosquitos. Used the air a few times during the day but much preferred having the doors open. Fans in every room helped to keep it cool. Air not really needed at nite but nice to have the option. We were so content we didn’t even go out to eat. The only thing it was lacking was an oven. Perhaps a toaster oven for people like us? Some noise from town but enough away from the downtown that you are not getting much traffic noise. Am looking forward to coming next year but will stay longer. We are generally fairly active people but being able to relax here after a couple hours of snorkeling was absolutely perfect. Close to shopping and Ali marketplace as well as farmers market but away from the craziness of where the cruise ships dock.
A toaster oven will be on it's way. Please return.
