About the property

White Sands Beach, Top Floor, Ocean View and Quiet

Aloha and welcome to our condo at White Sands Village. ( 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. The great room offers comfortable hardwood cork flooring, 48” HD “smart tv”, Blu-Ray/CD player and Google ChromeCast, custom bamboo book shelves and beautiful art work to enjoy. You’ll also find a rarely used sleeper sofa ready if you need it. Time Warner Cable is provided with full selection of HD channels, sports channels, HBO, Showtime and Starz. Use all the same apps you use at home!

Your master bedroom offers a comfortable queen sized bed, en suite full bathroom and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to the lanai. Enjoy the views of waves crashing at White Sands Beach in the morning, birds chirping and views of Hualalai and the famous Kona Coffee Groves on the “Mauka” (mountain) side. Mirrored wardrobe doors and a 48” HD smart TV are yours to enjoy. The recently remodeled 2nd bedroom also offers a very comfortable Queen Bed, new bedding, large closet and adjoining full bathroom. 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. You’ll also find our travel binder full of tips and suggestions for beaches, hikes, shopping, excursions, sports bars, restaurants and happy hours! We love the Big Island and we truly want you to love it too!

As guests of White Sands Village, you’ll have access to a heated salt water swimming pool, Jacuzzi, covered club area which includes 4 gas BBQ’s, sauna, library and game room with pool table. Of our course, the grounds are pure Aloha, beautifully manicured to enjoy while you kick back, feet up with Mai Tai in hand  Tennis Courts are free to use and available to reserve. We love the BBQ area. You’ll meet new friends from all over the world every night while you grill that Ahi or Opakapaka to perfection!

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!

The Big Island of Hawaii is so much more than fantastic beaches. 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.

We hope you enjoy your stay on The Big Island!

About Dougie Free

Our dream was to one day own a place of our own on the Big Island of Hawaii. After 18 years vacationing and enjoying everything this magical place offers, it happened. And we can't wait to share the Aloha with you. For more info, please visit

Dougie Free purchased this condo in 2017

Why Dougie Free chose Kailua-Kona

Well, it seems like we're always at Magic Sands Beach. Whether we pack our bags for the day to hang out there, or finish the day off after visiting one of the great beaches along the Kohala Coast, we're always drawn back. So, it seemed natural to purchase at White Sands Village, keep the car parked and walk to our favorite beach!

Exceptional Location, Property and Value!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place based, firstly, on the photos of the unit, punctuated by the great reviews, but also because of the value for a two bedroom, two bath for two couples traveling together. Felt really good - that is, until we arrived. Then, I felt like my life was charmed! The location is literally across the street from Magic Sands Beach, which is public and draws a crowd, but feels sort of like your own personal beach! The accommodations, and the grounds (the pool, bbq area, sauna, etc) were all super-well maintained. And, this condo is in the backside of the property, which is the best of the three, with views on the front and the back, where the other two buildings look into each other. The icing on the cake is the owner, Doug. Super, super nice and welcoming. True aloha-spirit. My fellow travelers and me and my husband are already talking about coming back, and brining more family to share. This place is a gem.

Excellant view and close to fantastic beach!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family! Clean and comfy beds. Kitchen had everything we needed. Dougie even supplied a playpen for our little guy! Nice pool area too! Elevator was handy when arriving late at night with a little one and luggage!! This was our first time renting a VRBO and I must say it was very easy and Dougie was super helpful in answering any questions we had. Definitely recommend staying here!! Beautiful place.

Great place to stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised. Everything was very clean and inviting and very well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with many basics and is very adequately equipped to facilitate all meal preparation. Great location, central to many attractions and activities in the area. We are avid snorkelers and enjoyed being close to Kahalu'u Beach which has excellent snorkeling. Quiet and secure location. Unit is very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed virtually all our meals out on the lanai. Dougie is exceptional to deal with. He responded very quickly to e-mails every single time. He provided a detailed welcome package and even checked on us after we had been there for a day or two to ensure everything was going well. We definitely recommend staying here and have nothing but praise for Dougie's high level of service and satisfaction provided.You can be confident that Dougie will treat you right!

Great stay on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to the Big Island of Hawaii - our favorite island! We have previously stayed in the Hilo & Waikoloa areas but decided to try out Kona this time. This area is wonderful, easily accessible to amenities but a little removed from the busy downtown section. The condo is comfortable, clean, well equipped and extremely spacious for our family of three. Owner provided a helpful welcome packet and all instructions were clear and check-in & out, easy. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this property!
