Our condo is the perfect place to 'get away from it all' and kick back. We are located across the street from White Sands Beach, a premier boogie boarding beach which attracts swimmers and snorkelers alike.

Just 1 mile south to Kahalu'u State Park (Snorkel Beach), view hundreds of species of tropical fish and giant green sea turtles in protected calm waters (no waves). We see turtles DAILY at Kahalu'u Beach as they feed off of the algae right at your feet. If you're a golfer, choose from one of the two 18-hole courses at the Kona Country Club just two miles away.
The inviting pool with chaise lounges, jacuzzi, game room with pool table, library, and free tennis courts are available for your use. Take an easy stroll over to the beach or park (with benches along a sea wall or shaded lawn) and enjoy the white sand beach,turquoise water, waves, a swim, snorkeling, the sun, or sunset. We have everything you should need for the beach-chairs/beach mats/snorkel gear/towels. Shop the local farmer's market for great buys on local fruits or shop at the large supermarkets and use the kitchen or barbecue.
Begin your mornings sipping Kona coffee on the 27' lanai while overlooking the palm trees, poinciana treehibiscus,plumerias,and banana trees with peeks of ocean through nearby trees.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My husband Tommy and I are so pleased to be able to share our special place in paradise with you. Both of us were born and raised in MN/WI which means we definitely needed a place to mend our frostbitten skin from the upper Midwest winters. It is inherent in both of us to welcome people into our home so renting out our condo through VRBO and Homeaway seems like a great fit for us. We currently live in Eastern Wisconsin where we are raising our wonderfully curious little son and future surfer/ beach boy.
Why the Owner Chose Kona White Sands Condos: We chose this condo because of the proximity to White Sands Beach. We tried to think of all the essentials needed for a perfect vacation and used it as a checklist when choosing to buy our property. We think we hit the mark with this condo! It has everything you need for a complete vacation. White Sands Village is truly a premier location as most condominium complexes on Alii Drive are NOT on a beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The condo is spacious and the extra large lanai acts as another living room-just outside. There is a great breeze on the lanai making it a wonderful place for dining, relaxing, napping and listening to the birds. We spent a month in May of 2013 giving the condo a complete update from lighting, art, paint, linens, and furniture to make your vacation a luxury rental experience.
