Hi - My name is Teresa Simmons. I am from Vancouver Island B.C.
309 was a complate make over . This is something that I really enjoy. Restoring a condo in Kona Magic Sands is very satisfying as it is a special place in a special location. I hope you decide to be my Guest - You wouldn't be dissapointed.
Teresa Simmons email@example.com purchased this condo in 2012
We love being right on the ocean.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 Kona Magic Sands Beach. The ocean view is great from the condo
The unit is compact and full advantage has been taken of the space allotted. The Lanai is enclosed so you can sit at the kitchen 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. Dolphins 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 is not a ton of swimming beaches right in Kona and this one is one of the best. Some of the best boogie boarding and snorkelling on the Island. 309 is on the 3 rd floor with extra great views and no street noise. It has a numbered parking spot.

I would have rated this at 3.5 stars, but because you can't rate in half stars and everything else went well, I leaned more to 4. Let me start by saying this was a very well-equipped and clean apartment with a wonderful view, as said on the reviews. Check in/out was super easy and no issues with management or money. However, it is VERY warm in the apartment at nights (and days) due to no air conditioning and very poor ceiling fan speeds! Most older oceanfront condos in this area are built this way and this side of the island (West coast), there is no cooling breeze to help with air flow. So even in the evenings, it is very warm and humid. Our room had a temperature of between 27-30 C or 80-85F with a very weak ceiling fan. We were forced to buy a $40 standing fan at Walmart to cool us down at nights, so we left a nice parting gift to the owner and the next renters there. I don't mean to complain, but it was very difficult to sleep at night because of the warmth and the loud crashing waves because you have to leave the windows wide open. Especially difficult if you like to sleep in a cooler temperature at night. We were so tempted to leave early and get a hotel room with A/C in town. Even Hilo and Honolulu felt much cooler in the evenings because of the winds that blow on from the East. I know this is Hawaii, but on this side of the island, you will want A/C, trust me! Also, the apartment is on the 3rd floor, so keep this in mind when hauling stuff up to the apartment. Not suitable for people with mobility issues.
We had a wonderful few days here. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for the fact that the ceiling fans (2 of them) did not work. This was a real problem because it's very hot and without air conditioning it was suffocating.
The kitchen ceiling fan worked and saved the day. The bathroom fan was broken. The fan near the bed worked very slowly. It obviously needs repair.
The apt. needs another ceiling fan in the living room area. At night our kids slept on the fold-out couch there and it was so hot they needed washcloths with ice on their foreheads to get to sleep. A ceiling fan here would be really helpful. (the small standing fan in the apt. was too weak to be effective)
They had lots of bathroom towels which was great. However, there were only 3 beach towels for the 4 of us. (it was a rental for 4). We tried getting another but failed. Also one roll of toilet paper in the bathroom is not enough! One drawback was it wasn't easy to find someone in charge to talk with. I emailed the owner and she didn't respond.
One total shock was there was no elevator in the 3 story building. I think this should be mentioned in the description of the rental.
In total, I hope the owner fixes this situation because it's a great place otherwise!!
Great location right on the water. Also the litthe beach right next door was great. Open up the sliding doors to a great view of ocean and sound of waves. Very comfortable space and great price. The only negative was no air conditioning and the sound of the waves was actually almost too loud with the sliding doors open at nigh. But overall we loved it. Easy check in and check out.
Overall, our stay was fantastic! Teresa's condo was clean, well equipped, comfortable, and in an excellent location. My daughters and I especially appreciated the use of snorkel gear, cooler, beach chairs, beach towels...we were set! the kitchen was well equipped too. The condo complex is quiet and well cared for, and Teresa was wonderful to work with!
Overall, this is a wonderful, casual spot, and very reasonably priced!
Small condo building right on the shoreline. Not quite close enough to Kona to walk to the shops and restaurants but close. Very personable property manager. Studio size apartment with no air conditioning so you have to be prepared to listen to the waves so you can get some air. We enjoyed our stay and would return here again.
Awesome Vacation in Kona. Kona Magic Sands was awesome location, close to all sightseeing. Pool and the people were so friendly, Lori the manager was awesome! We loved the Condo, the surf and the roar of the waves at night was some of our trip highlights. The beach at KMS was always full of life, surfers and great times. We managed to see the Volcano twice, and took in twelve different beaches. We loved our stay and cooked almost all our meals at home. I would recommend KMS for all travellers! We were also invited to a great big barbecue from the owners, which we attended and enjoyed meeting everyone. Thanks again Teresa for the wonderful stay!😎
