About Teresa Simmons tmsimmons@shaw.ca

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 tmsimmons@shaw.ca purchased this condo in 2012

Why Teresa Simmons tmsimmons@shaw.ca chose Kona Coast

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

What makes this condo unique

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.

Enjoyed seeing tropical fish from the room

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, comfortable and convenient to nearby Magic Sands Beach. We had everything we needed with the exception of any spices - most condos we've been to have at least a small amount. No problem, we bought a Hawaiian salt mix that we brought home (maybe that was the issue). The special prize was that you could see yellow tang and other dark fish from the condo. Being that it is on the 3rd floor, we were able to leave the sliding glass doors open all the time and the room was fresh and cool when we returned after a day outing. The sound of the ocean at night was fantastic.

Owner's Response: It is mesmerizing watching the fish ride the surf. Some days I have also spotted a turtle. Generally there is salt and pepper only in the condo as I have asked that things don't accumulate as its impossible to ensure the freshness. Thank you for your review!

Gorgeous view, crashing surf, fish filled waves,,

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. It was well appointed inside. I loved being lulled to sleep by the ocean waves at night and the yellow tang filled waves in the morning were a delight. Do be aware there is no elevator and 3 flights up towing luggage is a work out.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, the view and surf really are hard to beat! The first floor may be better for some guests d/t the stairs for sure. We are getting a restaurant starting up this Sept which will be very convenient!

Lovely studio condo overlooking the ocean, walk to beach next door

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this condo. It was clean with comfortable bed and furniture. The soft sheets and towels felt good, a touch of luxury. The kitchen was well stocked. The lanai is enclosed with large glass doors to slide open, making the living area larger. This is a studio so there is not a separate bedroom, but that was fine for us, there was plenty of room and furniture to relax on.. It was pretty warm for sleeping with no air conditioning but there were ceiling fans that helped move the air and thank goodness a standup fan that we pointed at the bed at night. We could look out over the water and see the fish in the waves. It is nice to have an ocean-front view like this, no parking lots or highways to look at, just the ocean. We liked the sound of the surf, it was a reminder that we were at the ocean even after dark. Magic Sands beach is right next door and though the amount of sand varies there, it was a lovely sandy beach on this trip. So nice to just walk over there and enjoy the sand and water, no need to get in the car to enjoy a beach.. There is also a lifeguard at this beach, which is reassuring. We did drive to restaurants, but only takes a few minutes, whether you go north or south.

10 Times Better Than Any Hotel

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3-day stay and highly recommend it for a couple looking for a quiet place on a popular road in Kona. The beach next to the building allowed us to dip in the ocean whenever we wanted. It was magical falling asleep to the ocean each night. We stayed during the Kona Ironman and loved cheering on th the participants from to the outside our door! You won't find a better place for the money.

Owner's Response: It is neat that the iron man competition goes right past condo site! Makes it easy to spectate without getting caught up in the rush.

Great view

  • 5 of 5

This place is right on the ocean. The room itself was nicely remodeled, perfect for 2 people. The condominium itself needs a face lift, but the room is very comfortable. We loved being right next to magic sand beach which is one of the only sand beaches on Alii drive. It was great for body surfing and snorkeling. For the price this place was perfect.

Great value and location, but too uncomfortable for some

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that I just found out now after checking my reviews that there were issues with the fans. I have now made efforts to correct this. Like most owners I prefer to hear of issues personally, impossible to correct if not known. I hope the rest of your trip went well.
