Kona Magic Sands studio description

This studio condo features a full, unobstructed ocean and reef view. It has the best studio layout with a roomy feeling and all of the comforts of home and more.
All new furnishings and appliances. Plenty of dishes and cookware to enjoy a relaxing meal at home. New linens and blankets. New AC and fans. New 40 gallon water heater - no need to wait for the water to heat up. New pull out couch bed for those friends who just won't leave! Boogie boards, beach gear and towels to make it easy for you to have fun on your vacation. We fully stocked and maintain this condo since we love to vacation here personally.

Vacations are precious, don't settle for less go with the best (top floor, A/C) and save (time and money, go to the beach next door and BBQ right out front while you lounge at the pool).

Professionally managed, maintained and cleaned- just read our reviews we love this condo and it shows! We have been told so many times when guests stay in our condos that they just feel like they are home and they are so comfortable - come share the feeling. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Location:
Conveniently located directly next to Magic Sands Beach as pictured (so convenient not needing to find parking). On the other side of this small complex, there is a palm tree studded park where the hula girls practice. Only a couple miles to downtown Kona (walk if you like or jog). There is also a trolley that stops right outside and loops around the downtown (about 2 miles away) and the grocery (about two miles the other direction) which is great because you can get away without having a rental car or catching the happy hours and not worrying about driving back. 

Kona is our favorite city in Hawaii with just enough tourism to allow for a great selection of things to do and places to eat and few enough tourists to not feel like... well... feel like tourists. If it is your first visit to Hawaii, Kona is the best place to stay in our opinion, which is why we first decided to buy a condo here.

About Kona Magic Sands Condos:
Kona Magic Sands is well a maintained, small, 3 story condo complex with lawn and pool that sits directly between KMS Beach and a park. It is unique amongst some of the condos in Kona since it sits directly facing the ocean and some other condos put the guest rooms at an angle to squeeze more rooms in with a “view.” Some of the recent upgrades to the condo complex include: new paint, the pool re-plastered with turtle mosaic, new second bbq, landscape maintenance as well as frequent deep cleanings. There is a fantastic and helpful on site Manager, Lori, that takes care of many aspects of the condo and is kind to help with directions or other local questions. There is plenty of seating at the pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as two complimentary BBQs. But one of our favorite parts of KMS is that there never seems to be a crowd! There is also trolley that stops right outside of the condo that will take you to the grocery plaza and also loops to downtown Kona a couple of miles away.

The trolly stops directly across the street to take you downtown for fun, happy hour or around the way for groceries. So many things nearby, Kona is a perfect vacation location. ...moreless

                                    The condo was immaculate and not cluttered. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials and plush towels in the bathroom. The view of the ocean was breathtaking, especially at sunrise and sunset. The sound of the ocean waves was soothing during the night with the smell of salt water blowing in. It was in a good location for sightseeing in either direction. We enjoyed walking to the restaurant next to the condo. We plan to stay here when we return to Hawaii, Debbie and David.

                                    My husband and I just spent 2 weeks at this wonderful condo. Everything was comfortable, well looked after and well thought out. Even down to the stupendous sunsets every night.! Mornings were spent drinking Kona coffee and watching the surf pound in. After a hard day of snorkelling or swimming with the dolphins or hiking or just exploring, we would come back for a drink to watch the beautiful sunset. The location of the condo made it easy to either get into or out of town. But really, you just couldn't get any closer to the water than this. Fabulous!

                                    Great place, great views, and great snorkeling. Didn't locate the bicycles for use mentioned in the listing.

                                    Owner response: Aloha I'm glad you thought the top floor studio was great. Plus with the cool AC unit. We thank you for your stay with us. As for the bikes we have they are for the 1st floor studio unit we rent out also. It would be hard to get the bikes to and from the 3rd floor when you used them "no elevator". So next time come stay with us downstairs for the bikes but no cool AC. Mahalo D&D

                                    The location was great, we do recommend a car to get around. The beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards were great to have supplied with the rental. Fabulous ocean view to watch the sunset, dolphins swim in the morning and the surfers at the Magic Sands beach. Definitely recommend this place.

                                    Location of the condo is great...right next to one of the few sandy beaches on the Kona side....literally takes 2 minutes to get from the unit to the sand. The unit was recently upgraded intelligently. Big water heater, a/c, new appliances including computer and tv, and thick curtains. We had friends staying at VRBO condo just up the road for 2x the price, and they complianed about not having curtains, a/c and only having a tiny 10 gal water heater. The place is stocked with body boards, beach chairs/mats, and snorkel gear...all of which are decent quality. The unit is nice, not luxurious by any means, but very clean and comfy. I thought the owner's choice in upgrading the practical function of the condo rather than just the cosmetics was money well spent. The real draw to this place is the proximity to the water, I think you could actually spit into the ocean from the unit. The waves are so close and so beautifully loud that we could only leave the sliding door cracked a bit at night to sleep! It was great being able to sit and enjoy a meal and watch the fish and turtles swimming around at the same time. In my opinion, for the price, this place is unbeatable.

                                    I was generally very impressed and happy with my stay at this condo. It has recently been remodeled with new furniture, etc., and had everything I could possibly want or need during my stay and then some. Dave and Debbie were very easy to work with, responded promptly, and refunded my security deposit very quickly after my departure. My only complaint would be pertaining to the new bar/seating table and chairs that face the ocean. I know that the bar height stools/tables are popular these days, and the height of the chairs made it easier to see over the railing. They don't, however, work for someone with short legs. I ended up moving the table and chairs so that they were away from the window and sitting in another chair for the whole week. Fortunately they had a variety to choose from, and I was able to find a comfortable chair. I would absolutely recommend this property and these owners to anyone looking for a relaxed and enjoyable vacation. Thanks!

The location is excellent, a few minute's drive to Kailua-Kona, easy to get to the beautiful beaches north like Hapuna and Kekaha Kai. Longer drive to Volcanoes National Park, but very doable for a day trip. We even had time to stop at Black Sands beach on our volcano trip, though we chose not to take the 2.5 mile hike to Green Sands due to time. The views from the condo are gorgeous, we saw turtles and many fishes in the surf right from our room, and it faces the west for amazing sunsets. The condo is very well equipped, we loved using the boogie boards and other gear provided, also well stocked kitchen, all the pans, dishes, utensils and appliances that you probably use at home daily. We barely used the A/C because of the cross breezes and huge ceiling fan. The shower is great, nice size for 1 person, NOT one of those tiny corner things that you can't even turn around in. And 2 shower heads is a nice touch. The furnishings are comfortable and 'beachy' without being over the top or kitschy. The teak table and bar stools are beautiful, king bed very comfortable, dresser big enough for our stuff, and super-convenient to have a computer and wifi in the room. The room actually sleeps 4 because of the pull out couch and there are 4 barstools for dining. The pool is moderately sized, but never crowded and nice to have if you just want to take a dip without going out to the beach. There are also 2 BBQs by the pool, with 2 large table and chair sets and 6 lounge chairs. I think the only negative I could mention is also a positive, the 3rd floor location brings those amazing views and total privacy, it's just a little difficult to haul heavy bags, groceries, and gear up and down. So maybe not good for someone with limited mobility. We would definitely stay in this condo again, and would recommend to friends and family. Wonderful stay!

                                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                                    My husband and I stayed at Magic Sands for 4 nights and absolutely loved it here. The sound of the ocean at night, the view in the morning and at sunset. The ease of getting in to town and having some lovely meals as well as being able to use the facilities in the condo. Everything you could ever need is there and it is decorated well. Thank you for letting us stay in your condo we had an amazing time and hope to return in the future.

                                    We had an awesome time on our recent Vacation and the condo exceeded our expectations! The owners were great to deal with and they have included everything you might need. The unit has been recently renovated and has a new king size bed, new furniture, new computer with Internet access, new appliances, new paint, new towels, new kitchen utensils and cooking ware. It includes everything you might need for the beach including, beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, snorkeling gear and boogie boards. Best of all the complex is located right on the beach and we watched whales and dolphins right from the unit! There is a great beach on one side of the complex and a little beach park on the other. The pool out front is not crowded and the complex itself is well run and really quiet. We had an awesome trip and we would totally recommend it!

                                    We stayed here for 10 days, and it was perfect for us! With the beach a few steps away, a very nice restaraunt in the same building. We didn't need to go anywhere else! The studio had plenty of tells sheets, beach chairs, snorkel gear.... Everything! All new appliances. We fully intend to go back as soon as we can!

                                  Why the Owner Chose Kona Magic Sands:
                                  We bought this studio because of the area and the beautiful top floor view of the ocean and reef and sea life below. The whales also migrate past right outside in the ocean.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                                  Top floor, new powerful A/C, and no blocked views due to the position directly facing the ocean. Pool on site and beach and park directly next door. No parking fees and amenity fee included.
