Property description

Completely renovated condo. One of the few air-conditioned units. Upgraded cabinets, tile floor, enlarged shower, new kitchen & appliances, new furniture and linens. Oceanfront on famous Alii Drive where Ironman is held annually (we cheer them on as they run by). We've watched whales breach from our condo! Watch spinner dolphins over breakfast, play in surf w/ family of sea turtles, or mingle w/ local surfers. All without loading the car and searching for a beach, everything you need right at home.

We vacationed here in this small, lovely, and quiet OCEANFRONT complex and loved it so much we wanted to own a piece of this paradise on earth.

We have a white sand beach to our left, a park with giant banyan trees to the right and the rhythm of the surf right outside all day, all night. Keep the sliding glass doors open for the marine sights, sounds, and lovely breezes courtesy of the trade winds on the Kona side of the Big Island.

AC is available, if the tradewinds aren't enough for you. New beach chairs and umbrella. Booogie boards and snorkel equipment for your use.

So come and share with us our OCEANFRONT (not just ocean 'view') studio condo. We hope you will love and enjoy it as much as we do! We do have an online contact; phone numbers available in the condo.

And the complex has an OCEANFRONT POOL, OCEANFRONT bbq area, hose to wash off car, and outdoor shower to wash off sand and salt. Kona Magic Sands definitely has the 'aloha' attitude!

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Any closer to the ocean you would be in it! We just fell in love with this condo the minute we walked in and saw the wall of glass with the ocean waves right there in our faces! Hearing the ocean waves pounding on the shoreline is so wonderful!! So relaxing! Absolutely mesmerizing! And right from our own condo we see whales, spinner dolphins, and schools of bright yellow fish (you get the idea)! Come see for yourself.

Yeah, take the time to visit the volcano or see the snow at the summit of Mauna Kea. Or maybe just spend the whole time here at Magic Sands snorkeling, swimming, watching surfers, and enjoying the aloha sunsets. You really don't have to leave at all.
Be sure to check all the guidebooks. Kona Magic Sands gets great reviews!! AND YOU DON'T NEED TO DRIVE TO THE BEACH! IT'S NEXT DOOR!

AND (like the guidebooks recommend) it's on the 3rd floor for the most privacy and the best possible views of all the ocean 'activities'!

REMEMBER: Check your flight. Check our calendar. and then e-mail or call me with questions, dates, anything. . .well, almost anything.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: As residents of AZ, we were looking for an escape from the heat. Kona is perfect for us to escape to. We love the Big Island and Kona Magic Sands is just far enough away from tourist attractions in town but it's close enough for us to pop into town for coffee, a burger, ocean-side dining, shopping, or live music. Mostly, we just enjoy the simple pleasures -- the lull of the ocean, the tradewinds, the Aloha spirit. We already feel 10 years younger here.

Why the Owner Chose Kona Magic Sands:
We searched the kona coast for a retirement condo. Yes, there are bigger condos, but we found none with a white sand beach next door and a beautiful green park on the other side with a surf so close. Location is everything. We love to take coffee to the beach at sunrise and watch surfers enjoy the breaks.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
A/C, RENOVATED, UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS. Our condo is not only recently updated (2014), but also offers air conditioning. Not all condos in this complex offer A/C. Check into this before booking other condos in this complex. Also, our unit is top floor center of the building, so no external lanais block your views of the beach, the surf, and the sunsets.
