About the property

Ocean front, 180 degree view, studio Condo, included wifi, beach gear(Sleeps 2-4

You will be greeted with stunning views and ocean breezes from this ocean front, first floor studio with private secured wifi internet, cable smart tv, two new beach cruiser bikes (May 2017) and new furnishings. Dolphins, sea turtles, whales and outrigger canoes can be seen from the railing.

The white sands beach is nestled directly next to the condo with a park on the other side where hula girls enjoy practicing and fish-filled snorkeling reef right out front!

Avoid driving to the beach and be at ease, using the complimentary beach towels, snorkeling and boogie boards while only steps from the white sand. Or take the two beach cruiser bikes for a little ride down to the Kona Farmer's Market. Relax at home under the fan and enjoy the sunsets from the queen sleeper sofa (new August '15) or while bbq poolside.

We take pride in our condo and would love to have you as our guest on your next trip to Hawaii!

Some of the features you will find in our condo include: cal king size bed, dresser, bedding, towels, queen size pull out sofa bed (new August 2015), 4 person dinning table, 50' wall mounted smart HD flat screen TV and cable (we re-did the cable line for better picture quality), 2 beach cruiser Bikes, microwave, convection oven, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker and bean grinder, as well as dishes and silverware, ceiling fans, handheld shower wand, blow dryer, hair straightener, hair curler, iron and steamer, boogie boards, snorkels and masks, fishing gear, beach towels, sand toys, binoculars (to see the dolphins and whales that swim by right outside the sliding glass door) and floor fan.

This unit is great because there is no elevator at Magic Sands and after a long day, it's nice to avoid stairs. The sound of the ocean is wonderful and you can't beat passing extra drinks over the railing when you need to go back for more! We strive to make this condo as nice as we can for ourselves and you as our guest!

About Kona Magic Sands Condos:

Kona Magic Sands is a well maintained, small, 3 story condo complex with lawn and pool that sits directly between Kona Magic Sands Beach and the park. It is unique amongst some of the condos in Kona since it sits directly facing the ocean and some other condos put the guest rooms at an angle to squeeze more rooms in with a “view.” Some of the recent upgrades to the condo complex include: pool re-plastered with turtle mosaic, new second bbq, landscape maintenance as well as frequent deep cleanings. There is a fantastic and helpful on site Manager, Lori, that takes care of many aspects of the condo and is kind to help with directions or other local questions. There is plenty of seating at the pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as two complimentary BBQs. But one of our favorite parts of KMS is that there never seems to be a crowd! There is also trolley that stops right outside of the condo that will take you to the grocery plaza and also loops to downtown Kona a couple of miles away.

About Debbie & David Todd

We bought this ocean front condo, after much searching, as a vacation spot for ourselves to enjoy over and over again. We live and work in California, but vacation here (no passport required)!

Debbie & David Todd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Debbie & David Todd chose Kailua-Kona

Convenience! The Beach is directly next door, park on the other side and ocean view with dolphins and turtles right out the glass doors. Care free attitude surrounds the place and it is located only 20 minutes from the airport. The first floor requires no climbing of stairs which is great for us. Located On Ali'i Drive near shopping, restaurants and activities. Near the pool with great views too.

What makes this condo unique

Almost everything provided, just bring a clothes, swim suit and a smile! Care free convenience allows for the aloha spirit.

Great location and really is best bang for your buck!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week here with my boyfriend and had a great stay! Super easy dealing with the Todd's, communication via email was quick and efficient. Check in and out super easy.

Great ocean view from the condo, and literally a one minute walk to White Sands Beach which we loved.

Best part we loved was all the gear that we were able to use from the condo. We didn't bring any of our own snorkeling gear (too much space in the luggage) so we had access to all the masks and fins and boogie boards and pool noodles. This was definitely a plus over the other vbro condos we were looking at and don't regret it! Would definitely stay here again if we came back to Big Island!

The only downside I can think off is there is no AC. Not a big deal but it can get very warm inside!

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

The property was as advertised. It was our bad luck that the Magic Sands chose not to show because of the weather and tide. The building is a bit tired, but functioned other than the lack of hot water in the shower as mentioned by others. We had a problem with a broken outer door handle. I sent a text to the owners and it was repaired the next day. The location of the room by the pool was a bit public to those at poolside. The Bang for the Buck as suggest on the Home Away site was true, however. It was a good bargain.

Great for the price.

  • 4 of 5

Price is awesome, easy to work with on information, amazing ocean views and hearing the waves the condo was well stocked with the bikes and beach chairs a plus. The only thing to be aware of is that because this condo is ground floor and right by the pool you don’t have much privacy. Most of the time it was fine but if someone is hanging at the pool it can be a little uncomfortable. Overall it was great.

Pull into a nice barrel 40 yards from your breakfast table...YUP

  • 4 of 5

This unit is fairly nice inside albeit a bit crowded with amenities( bikes, boogies, snorkles etc). The kitchenette was quite complete. the bathroom worked as normal except the hot water was only tepid and the diverter valve semi-inop. The big Flat Panel TV was nice for watching football too. The location, next to Magic Sands beach is awesome if you are a swimmer, sunbather or bodysurfer. Magics is usually quite crowded but if you get there very early you can surf in peace and find plenty of little barrels leading to the explosive beach break. Being so close makes that very easy. The pool and BBQ are great. You might hear people enjoying the pool area but it was not a bother. I saw whales flip-flopping while sitting at the breakfast table. The parking is very convenient and additional visitors can easily park across the street. Altogether it was quite pleasant, and a great value for this single, bodysurfing traveler. It will be enhanced when the new restaurant opens in the building in 2018. The fellow guests, manager and owners were a very pleasant and unpretentious group. Mahalo to the owners

Staying at the Todd’s condo you will not be disappointed. The location is ideal, clean easy access

  • 5 of 5

This is a great experience staying in this condo. To wake up to the direct view of the ocean is breathtaking. To Sleep to the sounds and smells of the ocean is tranquil. The condo is always clean and it’s eaay access in and out of the room for all the running around you do while on the island. It’s great having the free parking. Not to mention you literally just walk right on to one of the pretty beaches The variety of tropical fish directly in front of the condo is breathtaking. You can snorkel, swim and sunbath right at your own condo. Not to mention the amazing pool is always very clean and inviting. We also enjoyed being able to have barbecue’s right outside our door by the pool. But the most amazing part of the stay are the Todd’s themselves. They are prompt to book and make it easy. They are quick to respond. If you have any questions or concerns they address the issue promptly. They also have helpful information in the condo for suggestions of what to do while on the island. Not to mention the complex has a whole display of all the activities available The condo is also very quiet and secure. All the tenants are polite and respectful. Thanks Todd’s for four amazing years of making my experience in paradise amazing!!!
