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 plus A/C!

All new furnishings and appliances.
New king bed with new linens and blankets.
New AC and fans.
Plenty of dishes and cookware to enjoy a relaxing meal at home.
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, binoculars, 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.

                          With so many nice amenities (big screen, computer, printer, beach gear), we have to charge a reasonable security deposit. Some owners charge little deposits, but that is because they have nothing to lose.

                          Checkout: noon

                          Ocean front on Alii Dr. right next to Magic Sands Beach (great snorkeling and boogie boarding) and the other side is a park were the hula girls sometimes practice. 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.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: David and Debbie Todd are the owners and David is a board member. Kimberly, their daughter, helps manage the reservations and communicates with guests.

                          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.
