Interaction with guests
☆ This is a completely private unit- you can check in any time after 4 pm, and as there is an access code, you will not have to meet with anyone for keys. I live close by and am available for any assistance if needed. I respond to messages as soon as I see them, usually within the hour. ☆
☆We are right next to the ocean and the best beach and park in town! Don't hassle with parking, just walk 30 seconds to the beach! Great area for walking/jogging/cycling along the ocean for miles ☆
I highly recommend renting a car in advance, as it is necessary to see most of the island but if you choose not to, you can easily take the Honu Express Shuttle around town for $2 a ride.

Why Mira Gurung chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
We love having a piece of property right on the ocean and would love to share our home with you! Come relax next to Magic Sands beach and enjoy the sun and sea.
What makes this Condo unique
This condo enjoys the very same views as the neighboring, multi-million dollar oceanfront properties that rent for several hundred dollars per night in this quiet side of Alii Drive, away from the crowds closer to town. Magic Sand has always been our favorite beach, where we swim with the turtles early in the morning. Staying at this condo means you can meander there whenever you like, without having to struggle for one of the limited parking spaces. Another favorite activity is to walk along Alii Drive, past beautiful homes and undeveloped spaces for a brisk morning exercise.

The condo was perfect. Clean. Tastefully decorated. Well equipped kitchen.
The condo was just wonderful. The owners supply everything you need for the beach. All you need is your swim suit. The location was perfect. Close enough to town and northern beaches but far enough out of town to give you peace and quiet. The best part was the constant surf right in front. It drowned out anything you didn't want to hear and was so soothing. The Magic Sands Beach is just a minutes walk. We were able to watch turtles swimming in the surf and some stellar local Boggie Boarders. And in front of the house spinner dolphins were jumping and doing their thing. The owners were very attentive and ready to help with anything we needed. We hope to be able to return to Hawaii some day and we would definitely stay here again. Oh and our kids had a blast in the pool.
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us and for the lovely review. You were such a pleasure to host! Very kind and responsive and left the condo very clean. I especially loved your enthusiasm for this place, it reminded me why I am so lucky to live here.
Please come back any time!
Location was great... but
While the location was great, and the neighborhood is safe, the condo itself left a lot to be desired!
Kitchen, reasonably equipped for the size of the unit, but the cooker virtually unusable, since the rings on the range top all fit so poorly that they were at angles off level or recessed below the deck so there was no contact with the pan.
Bathroom, NEEDS TO BE GUTTED! Tiles and shower door broken, door barely closes! Shower stall itself looks very dirty, whether because not cleaned or because of age I cant tell.
Vanity wood is rotten and starting to collapse.
Towel rails falling off wall- I repaired a couple.
Pull out bed was really uncomfortable, much worse than most sofa beds. Needs a new mattress.
Not clear in the listing.. NO A/C
On the positive side,
good internet access,
ceiling fans and the sea breezes cool it fairly well after being open for an hour or two
Good tankless hot water heater
Great Location, Clean, All the amenities
I arrived and had a seamless check in with the code provided by the owner. The keyless entry is very nice. I found the property to be clean, well stocked with everything we needed, including all the amenities and tools necessary for preparing meals. The location between a lifeguarded beach and an ocean park makes for a very quiet location with nothing but the view and sound of the surf to fall asleep and awaken to. Few other properties along All'i offer this kind of solitude. The property owner was very responsive to my pre- and post-stay messages. I will definitely stay here next time I am in Kona. This unit was a great place to come back to after a day of activities. High speed internet worked flawlessly. This place is a real neat unit.
perfect oceanfront spot
My husband and I seriously had the best time here. Very nice studio and pool area. Great host , very responsive. Fully equipped kitchen with coffee pot, blender, microwave, refrigerator, dishes and utensils. Location is awesome!!! Beach gear provided, which is a huge bonus.
There's really nothing like staying right on the ocean, we didn't miss any of the action. It was also amazing being just a 20 second walk from Kona's best beach.
Awesome view and nothing beats the sound of the ocean every night!
Great location. Could use a few updates, but overall, a great stay! :)
Great ocean view and location
The location of the Magic Sands to downtown Kona, wonderful beaches, and quick grocery shopping etc is terrific. The ocean view from the condo is beautiful. The condo was fine for the four nights of our stay. The small appliances are workable, but old. We only cooked breakfast in the rental, but the burners on the stove are uneven for the most part. This unit does not have A/C. The ceiling fans and large floor fan were fine for us. Beach chairs and some snorkeling gear is provided. If you use wash cloths and hand towels bring your own as bath and beach towels are the only size we found. In general, if you like nice to very nice hotel stays this may not be the unit for you. If you spend a large amount of time touring, beaching, and enjoying activities of the area with the room being your least important feature you'll be fine.
Lovely shaded picnic area next to condo, ideal for family picnics or sunset viewing by the ocean, where locals frequently practice hula. No struggles to find a parking spot at the beach so favored by locals and tourists alike. With the pushbutton lock, you don't need to worry about carrying your keys to the beach!
