About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Ocean And Mountain View. Across the Street from Beach

It is all about location, especially the beach. Our condo is located just across Ali'i Drive from White Sands Beach one of the best boogie boarding and swimming beaches on the Big Island and the only one in Kailua-Kona. Taking an early morning dip, bouncing around in the waves, reading a book in the shade of a palm tree or watching a beautiful Kona sunset is what makes for a perfect vacation. We are also locate close (an easy mile south) to Kahalu'u Beach with arguably the best snorkeling in the area. You are almost guaranteed a swim with a green sea turtle and plenty of colorful fish. The calm and protected waters are also safe for young ones. But if you want to try your hand at surf or paddle boarding, the waters further out are popular.

We are also locate a short drive down hill from Keauhou shopping center where you can find just about anything from a large supermarket and drugstore, clothing shops, cinemas, takeout food, post office and two very good Asian Pacific restaurants, Kenichi and Sam Choy with its spectacular view of the coast. Keauhou is also quite a cultural center where you can see hula dancing or participate in lei making. Don't miss the excellent Saturday morning farmer's market for fresh, local produce, breads, local fish and meats, flowers, Kona coffee, condiments and crafts. And if you are lucky you will get to participate in local festivals which are often held at this community gathering spot.

Our condo is a value-priced alternative to the more expensive Kona and Kohala Coast resorts. We offer a lovely recently refurbished and lightly salted pool with hot tub, tennis courts on site and of course, the beacht. The Kona Country club with 2 18 hole golf coursed is locate 2 miles away. But our condo has a more home-away-from-home feel with the ability to cook your own meals in our fully equipped, gourmet kitchen or use the Webber grills available by the pool.

We have fully updated the condo with all new appliances, a new air conditioning unit and ceiling fans in every room and on the lanai, new water heater, granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths, tiles floors, WIFI, 3 flat screen TV's, a 55" one with DVD in the living room and flat screens in both bedrooms, and memory foam mattress topers on comfortable mattresses. The living room has a new pullout sofa with an upgraded memory foam mattress. We supply 'vacation read' books as well as a very good selection of historical and geographical books and material on Hawaii and especially the Big Island. We also supply beach towels, mats and beach chairs, coolers, some beach toys, snorkling equipment, boogie boards, rackets, puzzles and games and Hawaiian music CDs.

Because our condo is back from noisy Ali'i Dr., we enjoy a more tranquil ocean view. The two bedroom windows face out over undeveloped lands so that you can hear the peaceful sounds of the ocean waves as you fall asleep and awake to the songs of the birds. Our large (27') lanai is a great place to watch the sun rise over Hualalai with a cup of Kona Coffee or catch the sunset over the ocean after a fun filled day, or dine alfresco and enjoy the balmy tropical evening. Enjoying a hot tub or taking an evening dip in the pool is always a great way to end a perfect day.

We are lucky to have a shuttle bus which runs from the Sheraton Resort along Ali'i Drive (with a stop just in front of White Sands Village) to Kailua Village 4 miles north. Kailua offers churches, all manner of shopping, restaurants and night life, historical structures not to mention all the activities available at the harbour And we've created a book that details some of the many unique and interesting places around the island: black and green sand beaches, rain forests, volcanos, ranches, historical spots and botanical gardens further a field.

Our Kona location puts the best of the Big Island within easy and comfortable reach.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(20 traveler reviews)

Kona Ocean View - Easy Beach Access
average rating of 4.8 based on 20 reviews

White sands village condo 310 was excellent!

  • 3 of 5

The property is perfectly located and the condo is equipped with everything, and I mean everything...first aid kit, towels, soap, laundry and dish detergent, all the beach gear u need, the lanai is wonderful and the furnishings are very comfortable especially the massage chair - bonus!

The manager, Chris was kind and welcoming!

Enjoy your vacation here - no regrets!

Anybody wanting to go the green sand beach - be prepared with good walking shoes, sunscreen, a towel, and's a long but beautiful journey - probably a 90 minute walk in and out. I would recommend taking the $15 round trip per person ride from the locals.

Better than a 5 star resort! Every amenity, so nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed - and we like our gear and gadgets! The location is perfect, between Kona and Captain Cook you can quickly reach many things to do, and right across the street from a beach. The kids loved the pool table in the complex rec room, and the pool provided an after dark swimming option. The condo is nicely decorated, with furnishings that are both comfortable AND functional. The lanai has eating, sitting and lounging areas, plus a view of the sunset over the water. The kitchen has all the basics, plus coolers and ice packs to take food with you. Beach towels & chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear. Even a drying rack for your suits and towels (plus a washer+dryer). There's even a helpful book with things to do and places to go (food, beaches, recommendations, etc). The owners have provided so many amenities and nice touches to make your vacation in Hawaii both comfortable and memorable, it's impossible to list everything you'll have available to you here. The owners embody the spirit of Aloha!


Such a nice condo, functional and comfortable, great location and all that you would want during your Hawaii vacation. Huge thank you to the hosts.

Great Property

  • 3 of 5

We stayed during the middle of October. Over all the condo is wonderful. It is in a pretty good location. NOT walking distance to Kona but a short drive. Clean, and had just about everything we needed for our stay. I did however have to go buy trash bags and toilet paper as there were no extras. I am not very experienced at staying in a rented condo so this might just be the way it is?? Also we happened to be there when they were re-furbishing the rockwork around the pool. We had a generator and jack hammer going 8 hours a day for the entire time we were there so it was not very pleasing to use the pool or even go out on the lani. That was the biggest bummer. We were looking forward to some piece and quiet but that only happened when the workers went home in the evening.

The beach across the road is one of the best beaches around and we enjoyed it until they closed it for maintenance. We just couldn't catch a break.

I would stay there again however, it was a beautiful condo. I would just ask if there was any maintenance going on at the time.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, Sorry to hear about the pool work being done during your stay. I was not aware of it. A few years ago the decking was redone and it had major problems apparently so all of the pool decking, coping and tile was redone. We try and have extra supplies such as extra toilet paper and the like but it's possible stock was low. I will check with my manager, Chris. We do try and supply many things such as paper towels, shampoo, soap, laundry soap, dish soap, etc. You are correct that we are not walking distance to town. We are 4 miles, which is what is in our description. Were you told that we were within walking distance? If you do come and stay again, we would like to extend an extra discount on the rate. Thanks for staying and your review.

We had a wonderful time at Greg's condo.

Our family of 4(2 boys) and my parents stayed here for 6 days in August. The condo is clean, is packed with everything you could need to enjoy the wonderful beaches in Kona, from beach towels to boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, coolers big and small, and sunscreen as well. The kitchen cupboards were full of dishes, cups, and appliances which came in very handy pn the days we ate in. It was as if we were traveling from our own home.

It is also right across from White Sands Beach, a great place for boogie boarding, and 3 mins by car from an amazing snorkeling beach, where we swam with a lot of sea turtles. There are a lot of grocery within 10 mins.

If your are willing to drive a little, Hapuna beach is 50 mins away, which is truely amazing..We also visited Mauna Kea, which is about 1 hour 20 min drive from the condo, and is also a must do if you love stars.

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone planning to visit Kona, and would sure like to return some time.

Thank you Greg and Dana!

Great experience in every aspect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at the White Sand Villas condo. A few of the highlights include the perfect location in front of a pretty enjoyable beach, and close enough to the Kailua-Kona downtown and to a VERY nice snorkeling beach. The condo delivers as promised in the photos, and goes beyond: the kitchen is stocked will all sorts of things and the pantry was packed with picnic items and first aid supplies; in sum, all you could possibly need for a day spent in the island. The beach gear is varied. The bed linens are comfortable and complete. The owner, Greg, was committed to making our stay a great experience. Recommend this for anybody that wants to savor Big Island, either for a few days of for a month like we did.

To Greg: thank you for sharing with us a piece of paradise, it was a very enjoyable birthday celebration!
