We have 2 spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and similarly large living room, lanai, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with all of your cooking needs in mind. There are 2 covered parking spots and additional parking in visitor spots as well. Gentle breezes all day and night keep you relaxed and comfortable. Plenty of room for 4 people to enjoy paradise and still feel all the comforts of home. There is a big patio area (covered) adjoining the pool where there are 4 gas grills for cooking whatever you like to barbeque. There is a large pool and large outdoor hot-tub Jacuzzi, pool table and saunas for helping work out the kinks you bring from the mainland. Our property has beautiful tropical plants and vegetation with unbelievebly gorgeous flowers and subtle flower whiffs that tantalize your senses and make the relaxation all the better. The tennis courts on our property are well-maintained and free to our guests. We keep boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers for picnics in the condo so you can travel around the island and don't need to buy these things. Our condo is NOT wheelchair accessible b/c there are 7 stair-steps up or down from the elevator. We have a screen door that can be locked on the front door to enjoy the breezes all day and night.
White Sands Beach is 75 yds from the condo door. You can hear the surf at night to remind you that you are in paradise. It is also called 'Disappearing Sands Beach' since some of the sand will be 300 yds offshore during part of the winter. It is always perfect for sunbathing and beach-volley ball.
Pahoe-hoe park is 1 block away and is where the locals practice hula on Saturday mornings right on the oceanfront. There is a free open-air bus that picks up right near this park that is for tourists traveling along the road from Keahou to Kailua Kona. The condo is right between those 2 communities in a nice quiet area. Although there is no central heat and air conditioning, rooms come equipped with ceiling and floor fans and screens to allow the beach breezes to keep the rooms very comfortable year round....moreless
Some books about local sight-seeing and a library at the pool-table area....moreless

Sunsets at the gorgeous White Sands beach across the street from the condo with palm treees in the foreground are a daily event.
Snorkeling is very popular at Kahalu'u beach 1 mile south of the condo, but you can snorkel at White Sands Beach, too!
Our favorite place to visit is the national park, Place of Refuge (or Pu'uhonua o Honaunau in Hawaiian). It is a historical site with 500 year old stone walls, petroglyphs, re-constructed temples and Hawaiian houses and some of the best tide pools, turtle sunning areas and a great beach for scuba, snorkeling, swimming and people-watching. It is worth the admission and the free parking. We go to the picnic area that faces the ocean to the south of the park---same route into area ---and watch the dolfins frolic right near the beach eating lunch at one of the many picnic tables available. This is about a 22 mile or a 45 min drive from the condo.
For one of the top 10 beaches in the world (Conde Nast magazine), drive 45 min to Hapuna Beach. There is a HUGE perfect pale sand beach over a mile wide. The waves are perfect for boogie-boarding, body-surfing and swimming. There is a snack shop, showers, bathrooms and changing rooms. There is a fantastic beach trail going north where you will see whales in the distance all Winter long (take binoculars). The best shave ice (snow cones on steroids) on the whole island (maybe the whole state) is 4-5 miles north of Hapuna and is fantastic for after-beach cooling off before dinner. It is right near the little town of Kawaihae.
We love to kayak at Captain Cook Bay (aka Kealakekua) and the snorkeling is so good a lot of the all-day cruises come to this bay for snorkeling, scuba, swimming and sea life watching (turtles, dolphins, birds).
Going to the east side of the island is another world; MUCH more rain and the tropical vegetation is thick and beautiful. There are waterfalls, world renowned botanical gardens and fantastic state parks. On the southeast side of the island is Volcanoes National Park that has incredible attractions like hiking through a former volcano crater, exploring caves and lava tubes, a fantastic hands on museum about the islands and their formation, hikes along the lava at the ocean's rim where you may be able to find some flowing lava depending on the way the volcano is erupting (remember--it is 2000 degrees--you don't want to get too close). Park service does try to keep people away from the lava---you won't accidentally stumble into it!
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We live and work in Colorado and can't get to our second home as much as we would like. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do; that makes it more fun for us to share this slice of heaven!
Why the Owner Chose White Sands Village: We owned a condo in Vail, CO for years and decided we enjoyed the tropics and the relaxation we find in Hawaii more. White Sands puts us at the beach and is a beautiful place to lounge at the pool, relax on the lanai and jump off to some of the most unique and incredibly beautiful places in the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: You can be gone from dawn 'til after dark having some of the most amazing adventures of your life; or you can relax and stay at the property and beach the entire time.
