"We were there during the Ironman week. The unit is very well equipped with snorkel, boogie boards, beach chairs and beach towels. Very clean small studio. The murphy bed squeaks a little and the pillows during my stay were not the best. However through my communication with the owners the pillows were in the plan for an upgrade so I am sure anyone who will visit this studio after me, will enjoy better sleep on way better pillows.
The unit has an amazing ocean view and the bed is just next to the shore where the waves break. It can be quite noisy. However, we simply closed the windows and turn the AC on with works is magic. Yes, this unit has AC and it works very well at night. The AC is not loud and puts the unit into the proper temperature. Magic sands beach is just next to the condo, however the Kona village is 3 miles walk which we didn't mind and it was good to have a bit of exercise. During the Ironman run we set ourselves on the street using the beach chairs from the condo, we got beer, wine and we were cheering to the runners. I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Denise"

"Just returned from a 10 day stay at Maluhia Hale. We loved this home. It was clean and comfortable and just lovely. The quiet and privacy was perfect. The views were great to enjoy each day. I wish the neighbor across the street would cut his avocado tree as it totally blocks the actual ball of sun, this time of year, of the sunset. The sky is magnificent at any view but his tree doesn’t allow the full sunset “flash”. However, the egret living in the avocado tree is fun to watch leave and come home each day. You wake up each morning to a symphony of bird song. The pool and waterfall are beautiful and we enjoyed it very much. We even loved it in the rain. The tile is gorgeous and the workmanship is beautiful. The home was perfect for the needs of 3 adults. We had our own space and yet were able to enjoy being together for meals and pool time and movies. We had a rental car that allowed us to explore the island but it certainly isn't a must if you just want to enjoy the nearby beach and Ali'i Drive and downtown area. The younger adults totally enjoyed the proximity of both nearby beaches. This was our first foray into VRBO and it has sold us completely. We won't be going back to hotels or resorts if we can avoid it. This experience was the best!"

"We have stayed in many VRBO condos, and I have to say that this VIEW, hands down, was the BEST EVER! It was just the two of us and made for the perfect sunset dinners right out the window. Great pool to enjoy, and the ocean right out your front window! We are very particular about even the littlest of things.We had the bright white fluffy towels to the clean fresh lines on the bed. The nicely done kitchen set up, with dishes, glasses, utensils that all went together and has everything you will need to enjoy your picture perfect sunset dinners from your unit. The extra large bathroom all so tastefully decorated along with the rest the of the condo. Yes, it is an older complex, but when you can see that the owner has pride in their unit, it doesn't matter. The grounds, even though small, were immaculate. If we are ever on the Big Island again, I would certainly be looking at Kona Magic Sands #309 again! I would urge those that are looking at rentals, to be very careful when they are going through the filters on any rental. Sometimes, we assume that certain amenities are available when they aren't. Thank you Teresa for sharing your little slice of paradise!"

"This condo is awesome! The third floor location gives you a perfect view of the ocean and coastline. We watched beautiful tropical fish as well as dolphins from the lanai. From having breakfast everyday on the lanai to sitting and watching the sunset in the evening. It was the perfect location to set out on a new adventure everyday, from Volcano National Park to Kona to the beaches around Kohala. The condo has everything you need......beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, etc. The washer and dryer were such a bonus also! The building complex itself is older, but the owner of unit 303 has renovated their unit and it is lovely. It has air conditioning, wifi, flat screen TV (which we never even turned on preferring to listen to the waves!) We loved our week in unit 303 and plan on a return visit soon!"
