About the property

Oceanfront First Floor Studio Condo

Stay on the famous Ali'i drive next to Kona's best beach- Magic Sands! In this modern studio, you'll have unobstructed, picturesque sunset views over the Pacific every evening while the waves crash at your door. What could be better for a relaxing tropical vacation?

Sleep next to the ocean! Though it is a studio, the unit features convenient shoji doors that can create two rooms, and can accommodate as many as four. Get a good night's sleep on our new mattress or sleeper sofa, and avoid paying restaurant prices with our fully-equipped kitchen (though you can eat at the restaurant next door if you don't feel like cooking) or barbecue next to the ocean with unobstructed views of the ocean and sunset. In the afternoons, you can stretch out on the chaise lounge with a good book. Relax in the evening while watching tv or streaming from Netflix or Hulu on our new smart tv! Unit also comes with high-speed wifi, though all you need in order to relax is the sound of the surf outside the door.

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.

If you aren't renting a car, you can take the Honu Express Shuttle around town.

About Mira Gurung

I'm an International Relations major studying in Switzerland and managing my family's lovely condo at Kona Magic Sands. When not in Switzerland or with my family in Bangkok, Thailand, I love to come to Kona, as I have grown up spending summers and winters on the Big Island!

Mira Gurung purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mira Gurung chose Kona Coast

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.

Stayed here alone for a week in August with a lot of daily activities planned. It was nice to come back to beautiful sunsets and the sound of the ocean rollers. I didn't find I needed anything. The wifi was a bonus because cell service was not great for me. Good coffee place right down the street at Green Flash. I will definitely stay here every time I return to Kona. Thanks Mira!

Superb location - wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Sleeping to the sound of the waves crashing just feet from our window was awesome. We slept like babies.

The condo had everything we needed and more - complete with snorkel equipment! We loved it and would come again and recommend it to anyone. It was our cozy, wonderful Hawaii home away from home !

Great location

  • 3 of 5

This studio at Magic Sands is incredibly outdated and needs a lot of work and we were disappointed in the lack of any personal touches (i.e. Coffee, enough soap, etc.) given the price point. However, the location is ideal on Alli Drive and you are truly feet from the ocean. I would recommend this studio if you are okay with the very basics and want to be close to downtown Kona and the beach.

We did have a hiccup in our room being double booked the first night so we stayed at the Bali Kai on the ocean for a slight increase in our cost, but it was worth it. Very nice place. We moved into Kona Magic Sands on Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 and fell in love with the waves. The Magic Sand beach was right next door so we went to the beach every morning. Our bed was right on the porch so we were within 15 feet of the ocean wall. It felt very private but closer to the ocean than we have ever been. The space was large for the two of us with a more than adequate kitchen for both morning coffee and evening wine and snacks.

The parking, pool, and manager were great. The Kona Magic Sands will be our first choice when we stay on the west side of the Big Island.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The best location you can get, close to all the good beaches and shopping. Magic sands beach was incredible and was about 30 feet away from the room. The complex was quiet and secure with a very nice pool in a locked area, the other residents were friendly and serious about keeping the complex nice and clean. Magic sands beach provided awesome snorkeling and swimming, a farmers market is a short walk away and a large mall with everything is about a five minute drive away along with a lot of nice beaches within walking distance. Due to my ignorance in booking rentals I made several mistakes and the owner ended up being very patient and understanding, with her help my kids and I had a great stay and everyone liked the unit very much! I would recommend this rental.

My husband and I have been coming to Kona for years and this was by far the best place we have stayed at! It was honestly the perfect size for the two of us, and had everything we needed! It's also a GREAT location. I really cannot stress that enough. Right next to the beach, so no parking and no hassle! The second we stepped into this condo we knew it was right for us and we were sad to leave. We'll be back!

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!
