COMMENTS FROM PREVIOUS GUESTS

This condo is absolutely lovely! It was a wonderful place to be able to relax and was clean, comfortable and very well decorated. The location is also great - right in the center of everything and mere steps away from the beach! It was fantastic to be able to come back to such a wonderful place!

Les, Janice and Ethan

We have stayed in many houses and condos all over the world and we can honestly tell you that yours is by far one of the most clean, comfortable and well-equipped condos we have been in. It was an extreme pleasure to 'live' here for five days. Mark, Carol and Joe

What an amazing condo and location! I have been to Kona before but the experience was nothing like this! I hope to come back soon! Cheers, Brianna

What a beautiful place—inside and out! Loved our morning swim at Magic Sands Beach and the great location between Kona and Keahou. Thank you!! Tony and Brenda

What a great place here. Perfect location being across from such a magical place. Thank you very much. Natalie

We were very impressed with your condo—like a home away from home!!! Very clean, spacious and well appointed. We really appreciated the balcony overlooking the ocean!!! We had friends over for dinner a couple of nights…great evenings. All in all…a great vacation in Kona…We would recommend it to anybody…we will. P. S. Our friends thought your condo was much nicer than theirs across the street. Brian and Sandra

Enjoyed our short stay—the pool is fine as is the hot tub—great way to relax after a day in Coffee Country or snorkeling. The condo environment is pleasant, spacious and comfortable. Nice to have the sound of the waves with candlelight over dinner with friends on the lanai. Diane and Jan

We really enjoyed your place!! The location is perfect. We loved White Sands Beach across the street and Kahalu’u Beach nearby. The waves at White Sands Beach were great for the kids and snorkeling at Kahalu’u Beach is incredible—not to be missed! We all slept really well here. Some combination of sun, surf and great beds! The view of the ocean is good and the sound of the surf crashing at night was awesome. We really appreciated your furnishings, especially the King in the Master and the two twins for the kids in the second bedroom. Thank you! Randy and Joanne, thanks for all you have done to make your place...a home away from home! Martin, Susan, Matthew and Ben

About Joanne & Randy Corey

When we married in 2004 at the 'Little Blue Church' just 1 mile south on Kahalu'u Bay we knew that we had to have a condo on this Island in Paradise. We have done extensive remodeling with attention to detail and hope that you will truly enjoy our home away from home. Joanne and Randy Corey

Amazing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, all the comforts of home. Perfectly located just steps from the beautiful white sands beach. Joanne and Randy are amazing. We had one small issue with the clothes dryer, they had the repair man out the same day and gave us a refund for the trouble which was next to nothing. They responded with a call or text immediately anytime we had questions. Out of all the vacation rentals that we've had, Joanne and Randy are by far the best we've ever had the pleasure to do business with. Next time we're back to the big Island, this will be the only destination for us. Thanks again!!

We would love to have you come back and stay with us in the future. Joanne and Randy

Extremely well furnished throughout. Plenty of space for our family of 4 to be comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! We were not disappointed at all. Quite the opposite is true. The king size master bed was very comfortable. The pool and grill area are fantastic. We have done similar VRBO rentals three times before, and this is by far the best place overall. When we plan a big island trip in the future, we will stay here. No question. The beach right across the street is beautiful. We loved going for a run or a walk right in the neighborhood, and It's just about 3 miles to easy grocery shopping in Kona. Stay here. It's perfect! In addition to all of that, Joanne was a wonderful host every step of the way. She always responded promptly and made sure everything was right for us.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing account of your stay in our condo. It's always so rewarding when our guests like our place as much as we do! We try hard to make it a true "home away from home" experience in the extraordinarily beautiful setting of Hawaii and to provide all the extra amenities needed for a wonderful vacation. You and your family are welcome back any time! Joanne

Perfect spot to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Everything promised in the description for this condo is completely true. The pictures are, if anything, understated. It is spacious, impeccably decorated, and comfortable. The Lanai overlooks the pool and is a great place to relax. The bed in the master bedroom was wonderful, and the kids say the same in the guest bedroom. Having two baths was great, especially when all four of us were trying to get ready at the same time. The kitchen is well-stocked with any gadget you might need, and the closet had snorkels, fins, boogie boards, and beach towels. We only used the entertainment center once, but it worked perfectly and the tv screen is huge. Joanne was incredibly responsive, interrupting her own vacation to help us early on.

The Kona location is just about perfect. The condo is just a short walk from one of the best beaches in Kona. It's a public beach and can be crowded at times, but for good reason. It's a really good place to ride waves, play volleyball, or just sit in the sand. Snokeling is fair (meaning ok for Hawaii and phenomenal for anywhere else), but there is a fantastic snorkel beach just a few minutes away. We did see a couple of sea turtles while playing in the surf. I also highly recommend taking an excursion to see Manta Rays. Kona is probably the best place in the world for Manta viewing, and it's an unforgettable experience.

We want our guests to have great memories of one of their best vacations ever. Please keep us in mind for future visits to The Big Island. Your family is always welcome. Joanne & Randy

Wonderful Condo, Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Kona vacation at White Sands. We spent two wonderful weeks here. The location is convenient to everything.This condo is beautifully decorated with all Hawaiian touches. Everything is provided we did not want for anything. We ate all our meals on the Lanai enjoying the view. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub daily. Having the parking space right next to the elevator is great for someone with mobility issues and the condo just steps away from the elevator. Wifi kept us connected to family back home which was great. This was home away from home and we highly recommend it. Joanne and Randy were great and so very helpful. Thank you, we hope to return next year.

Great Condo, Fantastic Location, Outstanding Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Joanne & Randy's White Sands Village condo in October 2016. The property was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. The condo is located on the top floor of the building with great views of the ocean and the pool. The unit has been beautifully upgraded and was in immaculate shape upon our arrival. A very nice note and a bottle of wine welcomed us as we entered this fantastic home. The unit is large, light and airy with two large bedrooms. The master bedroom opens to the pool and deck with great ocean views. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be easily combined into a king bed (which we did). The condo was stocked with beach chairs, diving gear, beach towels, etc. All the basics were provided in the kitchen and the laundry area. White Sands Village is located directly across the street from White Sands Beach (Disappearing Sands Beach). The beach is great for both swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed playing in the surf as well as snorkeling with the turtles and fishes right across the street from the unit. The complex is very quiet and everyone that we met was friendly and outgoing. We moved north to Waikoloa after our stay at WSV -- White Sands Village is more conveniently located to explore all that the Big Island has to offer. Two Step and Captain Cook (great for snorkeling/diving are only about 35 minutes south of the unit). Kailua-Kona is only a short drive north on All'i Drive. Joanne was extremely easy to deal with prior to and after our reservations. She was professional and informative regarding all of our questions. On our next visit to Kona, we'll definitely stay at unit 306 at WSV.

Perfect Condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at WSV, this unit was well equipped for our family of 4. Many hours spent on the lanai enjoying the view, new patio furniture. Having the beach right across the street was very convenient & having all the gear available (towels, umbrella, chairs,etc.) & the cooler was great. Terrific pool, hot tub, & BBQ/kitchen area.

Close to Alii Marketplace & very short drive to downtown Kona. Owners responded to all emails promptly, super easy check-in. Mahalo!!

We love to spend time there ourselves, so want everyone to feel very comfortable with all the amenities needed to make it a "home away from home".
