Aloha and welcome to our condo at White Sands Village. (www.CondoAtMagicSands.com) Brand new to the rental market, this wonderfully appointed 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom top floor condo offers everything you’ll need to enjoy your stay in Kailua-Kona and the Big Island Of Hawaii. This newly upgraded unit is located in the back of the complex, away from Alii Drive, offering beautiful ocean and mountain views, renewing sunrises and spectacular sunsets (Sept-March) from your 27 foot long lanai. And it’s quiet! You’ll enjoy the tranquility and privacy our location offers, while the beach is just steps away.
Upon your arrival to our Condo At Magic Sands, you’ll find your reserved 2-car covered parking space is directly adjacent to the elevator. You’ll have zero stairs to negotiate from elevator to your front door. It’s super convenient for loading and unloading after your daily adventures. Our remodeled kitchen is beautifully appointed and well equipped with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/range and microwave oven, blender, coffee maker and toaster. We LOVE to cook! Your kitchen is well stocked with sharp knives, quality dishes, glassware and all the dining and cooking utensils you’ll need. We’ve even prepared a separate BBQ drawer with all the items usually needed for the poolside grills.
Enjoy the wonderful fresh foods available to you on the island like Fresh Ahi and Ono, Poke’, incredible local produce from Waimea (Kamuela) and tropical fruits available from our local farmers market at the kitchen bar top, dining room table or lanai table.

Evening breezes keep these bedrooms very cool most of the year. We also offer a portable crib.
Although our condo is situated to capture the soothing ocean breezes, you’ll enjoy the Central Air Conditioning on those extra warm days! Other amenities include stacked washer/dryer, Wi-Fi/High Speed Internet and a “beach chest”. White Sands Beach is right across the street, so we thought you’d enjoy ice chests, boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, an umbrella and snorkeling gear to make your beach days epic.

October is a very popular month as the Ironman Triathlon World Championship comes to the Kailua-Kona Pier. The 2.4 mile open ocean swim begins and ends from the Pier in Kailua Kona Bay, just 3.5 miles from our condo. The 112 mile bike ride races around Kona before heading out to the Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway up to Hawi Town and back. The athletes hop off their bikes at the Pier and head out for a nice 26.2 mile marathon under the Hawaii Sun and finish near the Banyan Tree on Alii Drive. From White Sands Village, you can cheer on the athletes as they pass you 2 times, out and back on the marathon course. It’s a great day for spectators and athletes alike. Ironman fans also know the Ironman 70.3 “Honu” is held in June at Mauna Lani Resort, just a short 40 minute drive away.
Location is everything, and we think White Sands Village is the perfect vacation spot. Directly across Alli Drive is the beautiful White Sands Beach, aka La Aloa Beach Park, aka Magic Sands Beach. Boogie Board, Snorkel, play Volleyball or just hang out and relax. Just 1 mile south is some of the best snorkeling on the Island at Kahalu’u State Park. View hundreds of species of tropical fish and graceful sea turtles in protected, calm waters. Or, learn to surf from the perfect point break with expert instructors. 2 miles south is Keauhou Bay, home to the Kona Country Club and 36 holes of Championship Golf. Both courses are open to the public. Keauhou Bay is also home to the Sheraton Resort, which hosts nightly swims and dives with giant Manta Rays, Keauhou Shopping Center which includes KTA SuperMarket, Sam Choy’s and Tropics Bar/Restaraunts and Movie Theatres. Plus a lot more!
Just 3.5 miles north is the picturesque village of Kailua Kona. Take a long walk, an easy drive or ride the Trolley for just $2. The Trolley passes directly in front of White Sands Village on Alii Drive and travels between Keauhou and Kailua Kona. The village, home to Kona Brewing Company, Huggo’s on the Rocks, Humpy’s and Lava Java, also offers many choices for dining, dancing, happy hours, Luau’s, shopping, island activities and an awesome farmers market. Our travel tips binder will highlight our personal favorites!

Here, you’re just an island drive away from the North Kohala Coast and Polulu Valley, the upcountry town of Waimea and Parker Ranch, the incredible Waipio Valley, Zip Line at Akaka and Umauma Falls, sunsets and the incredible night sky offered at Mauna Kea Observatories, Ancient Hawaiian Petroglyphs, Black Sand Beaches, yes…a SeaHorse Farm, the Ancient Village at Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park and Two Steps Snorkeling next door, Volcano’s National Park, Swim with Spinner Dolphins amongst colorful coral reefs at Kealakekua Bay & Captain Cook Monument, go coffee tasting or visit Hilo Town.
