White Sands Village condo description

Welcome to your home in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was our home until recently, so it has everything you want to live well and comfortably. Sink into the two soft leather recliner chairs or the leather double recliner sofa in the living room while you watch cable TV or a DVD on the 42 inch flat screen. Or relax on the California King Temperpedic pillow top bed in the master bedroom and watch TV or a VHS tape. The two twin beds in the guest room are brand new plush tops. There's plenty of drawer and closet space for your clothes, and when they're dirty, the full sized washer and dryer in the master bathroom does them quickly. Both bathrooms are newly renovated, with a tile walled and river rock floored shower in the master bath and an extra deep tub in the guest bath.

Walk to the condominium swimming pool, spa, sauna, pool table, library, and bar-be-que dining pavilion in 2 minutes and White Sands Beach in 3 minutes.


.The appliances in the kitchen are only a few years old, and the stove is a glass top. You'll find all the pots, pans, dishes, and linens you'll need for your cooking pleasure. The 196 square foot lanai has chaises for relaxing and tables and chairs for dining, and the fan overhead creates a cooling breeze. The central air conditioning, along with ceiling fans in both bedrooms, dining area, and living room keep you cool and comfortable at all times. Need to check your email? WiFi is set up and free, as are your phone calls and faxes throughout the USA.

You'll enjoy the quiet of the back building in the condo complex, and you'll have no trouble bringing your suitcases and groceries up. Your covered parking space is 10 feet from the quiet elevator, and your front door is the same distance when you emerge. And to keep the kids busy while you unpack, there are lots of crayons and paper and a huge bucket full of Legos.

When you're ready to play, the pool and spa are just 2 minutes down the driveway, along with saunas, a pool table and a take-one/leave-one library. Tennis anyone? The courts await you near the pool. Want to bar-be-que? Three propane grills are adjacent to the pool in a lovely pavilion area.

The best beach in Kona, Magic Sands, is directly across the street, and we have beach towels, boogie boards, and swim noodles ready for you to use. Kahalu'u Beach, with excellent snorkeling and loads of sea turtles, is just a mile down the road, and if you forgot to bring your snorkeling gear, rentals are available right at the beach. For shopping, dining, and movies, Keauhou Shopping Center is a short two miles away, and Kailua town, with even more shopping and dining, is about four miles down the road. Kailua is also the home of the Hawaiian royalty's Hulihe'e summer palace and Mokuaikaua, the first church the missionaries built in the islands.

Further afield you'll find Pu'u Honua o Honaunau (the Place of Refuge), Volcano National Park, historic Hilo town, Akaka Falls, Waipio Valley, Parker Ranch, and Hapuna Beach Park, among other wonderful places to visit.

We've enjoyed our Kona home at White Sands Village for years. We'd love to have you enjoy it also.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About the owner: We have lived in Kona and loved it for over 40 years, working as a hotel manager and a high school teacher. Now that we are retired, we live in Montana most of the time to be close to our kids and grandkids, but we come back to Kona at least once a year to enjoy the warm breezes, soft ocean water, and to see our friends. We love Kona, and we hope you will too.

                          Why the Owner Chose White Sands Village:
                          We bought our condo when we were ready to downsize, and we have never regretted choosing White Sands Village. The condos are cool and spacious, the lanai is larger than almost any other condos in Kona, the pool area is a wonderful place to relax and make friends, the beach across the street is the best in Kona, and it is close to shopping. We especially love being in the back building where it is quiet and you look out on a peaceful lawn and tropical trees.
