Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

White Sands Village Condominium is across from the finest beach on the Kona coast: White Sands Beach. The locals call it 'Magic Sands.' Swimming, boogie boarding, and snorkeling in the clear blue water are a must. Just three and a half miles north on Alii Drive is the charming and picturesque village of Kailua-Kona. One mile south is the famous snorkeling beach, Kahaluu. Kahaluu offers easy access to the undersea population of green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish of every description. After a glorious day in the sun, it is a short stroll down to the White Sands Beach to watch a spectacular Kona sunset. If you get lucky, you may see the famous green flash.

This beautiful unit is fully equipped to feel like a home away from home. You may pack light as there is a washer and dryer right in your condo. Tastefully arranged, decorated, and supplied to make you feel comfortable, this unit will allow you to experience the Big Island of Hawaii to your heart's content.

Our 1208 square foot home gives you a master bedroom with King bed & bath, a guest room with a Queen bed & bath. It has a fully supplied kitchen, dining room, and living room plus a large private lanai. Located in the more exclusive Kuakini Building, this condo is peaceful and quiet, yet a short walk to the White Sands Beach. The concrete building is very quiet. It has an elevator and covered parking, which other condos in Kona often lack.

The condo is located 13 miles to Kailua-Kona Airport (KOA), two miles to Kona Country Club Golf Course, and two miles to Keahou Shopping Center. The volcano is about a 95-mile drive. Fine and casual dining are close by if you don’t wish to cook at home.

If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway, this quality unit is just the place!

A special Note: The unit is NOT Handicap accessible.

About Wanee

We met and married in Honolulu, then moved to the Oregon Coast for some twenty years. Even when we lived on Oahu, we would escape to Kona on the Big Island where the unending sunny days and warm, clear ocean seem to go on forever. Always 'Hawaiian at Heart', we began vacationing in Hawaii more and more frequently, and purchased our first condo in partnership with two other couples some twelve years ago. As we began spending months rather than weeks in Kona, we purchase our own condo White Sands Village 'home'. Now, semi-retired, we have moved back to Hawaii permanently.

Wanee purchased this condo in 2004

Why Wanee chose Kona Coast

Away from the main Street, but easy walking distance to the beach, (about 150 yards). It is private and quiet. Comes with 2 covered parking.

What makes this condo unique

We do not charge our guests Resort, Parking Fees or WIFI. Many properties are now charging $25/day resort fees plus $20/day parking.

It is fully equipped including washer and dryer in the unit for your convenience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Wanee,

What a really nice home you have. Your condo was very nice - me and my sister had a great time. The location was great too. Also, just to let you know, the property manager was so nice as well, really gave us some good suggestions for touring the island.

Thank you also for your voice mail regarding the deposit refund. I would definately consider staying at your condo if I ever visit the Big Island again. Not sure it would be any time soon because unfortunately the flight from NJ is so long, but definately worth it!

Hope you are well and enjoying your summer. Thank you again.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo that had everything we needed included beach items. Everything was clean and well kept. Owners were great and thank you for fruit and chocolate (and letting us check out late). We had a great month here. Went on snorkel, submarine, helicopter, and manta ray snorkel trips. We explored most of the island and beaches. Great place to walk on Alii drive in the mornings, we also made friends at condo and pool. Thanks again for sharing your condo.

Great Condo... beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great time here in Jan 2016. The pictures look just like the actual condo. It was very clean and in a good location for Kona. It had everything we needed. There was a large deck which was a great spot to eat meals. There is a beach right across the street for the days you just want to stay close and there is a fantastic snorkel spot just down the road. The whole condo compound is very well maintained. Every day there were workers trimming trees and keeping the grounds beautiful. There were lots of beautiful birds to watch in the nearby trees. We only went to the pool and hot tub once but it was very nice. The pool was a bit cold but hearing the residents talk, that was being fixed. They were also putting in nice new bathrooms and showers by the pool. Wanee was great to work with... she left us a lovely welcome basket (loved those choc covered macadamia nuts) and she checked in with us to make sure all was well. I highly recommend this condo. We were just two and loved having our own bathrooms but there is plenty of room for larger families. If you are a runner, you can just run right out the door and along Ali'i drive for a nice run along the water. We ran every day!

This is a lovely unit in Kona. It is in a great location; close to beaches, restaurants and shops. Off Alii Drive with a great view of the ocean from the lanai. The unit is extremely well-maintained and nicely decorated.

It has all of the comforts of home, including washer and dryer,

Wish we could have stayed longer! Hope to return soon!

Our sincere thanks to Wanee for the opportunity to stay in this lovely, spacious unit in Kona. We are now planning our third rental in this unit. We feel that it has become a little paradise and a home away from home. The fresh fruit and chocolates are a very nice welcome. We would highly recommend this rental as it is clean, very well stocked and close to all that the Big Island has to offer. The beds are especially comfortable and the location on the top floor in the back building allow for a tranquil haven where only the sound of the birds can be heard. Thanks again.
