Unit is designed and set up for up to three people.

About Jan and Glenn Vacca

My husband Glenn and I purchased our first unit in this building in May 2014. I have had such a great time managing it and sharing it with our cherished guests, so when the opportunity arose to get a second unit here, we couldn't resist!!! We have been traveling to Hawaii for the past thirty years, and consider it our second home. Please come and enjoy the Aloha Spirit with us! Our home base is Southern California, and we travel to the Islands 2-3 times a year for down time, and to ensure the condos are well stocked and always up to date.

Jan and Glenn Vacca purchased this Condo in 2017

Why Jan and Glenn Vacca chose Kahaluu-Keauhou

We love Kona Magic Sands because of its unique oceanfront location and close proximity to all the shops and restaurants in Kona just a few miles away. CHECK OUT OUR OTHER LISTING #612353

                                                              Mirim H.

                                                              This condo is efficiently designed in every respect. It is very neat and has every amenity including cooking and beach equipment. You can open the doors at night and sleep 20 yards from the crashing waves. Look out the back door during the day and you can see yellow Tang fish dancing in the waves. It is right next to picturesque Magic Sands beach (so called because the sand disappears in winter, to return in the spring), which has snorkeling and waves (be careful of the shore break - can be dangerous if you aren't experienced in such waves). While we were there a lunch truck was in the parking lot and had excellent seafood. Next time we will bring a bicycle helmet to take advantage of the bikes for public rent right across the street. We found the location great for travel to other parts of the island. One hour north is Hapuna beach, our favorite and very family friendly. We will definitely rent this place again.

                                                              Beautiful, clean, organized and well appointed!

                                                              Linda G.

                                                              This property was so wonderful!

                                                              The ocean view from the room could not have been better. The design and furnishings in the condo were modern and lovely.

                                                              The bed was very comfortable and was near the balcony where we could hear the sounds of the ocean as we fell asleep.

                                                              The condo was stocked with anything and everything you could think of. Comfortable beach towels and chairs. We used the snorkel gear, coolers and bags that were provide on our daily outlinings.

                                                              We had a BBQ out near the pool with our family who had stayed down the street from the Magic Sands. The condo had everything we needed to host the six guest we had.

                                                              The unit had air conditioning and that came in handy for the short time we were at the condo.

                                                              Magic Sands beach is just a couple hundred yards away and was a perfect way to start our mornings.

                                                              I loved this condo and would highly recommend this unit to anyone!

                                                              Thank you,

                                                              Happy to hear the memory foam topper on the Queen bed was comfy for you! All the other extras we've included here make this place feel like home for our guests. Please stay with us again!

                                                              Spectacular view!

                                                              My husband and I recently visited the big island of Hawaii for the first time. Having used VRBO numerous times, we perused our options and chose Kona #307. The condo is super clean, spacious, extremely well-appointed and stocked, comfortable and the location cannot be beat. It was easy to locate and the free parking was convenient. The owners have done an OVER-THE-TOP job of decorating and furnishing their condo to make it very comfortable for their guests. They seem to have thought of everything you could possibly want or need. We appreciated the fully stocked kitchen complete with all of the usual dishes, pots and pans, glassware, etc., but were also pleasantly surprised by the availability of spices, tin foil, zip lock bags, coffee creamer, non-stick cooking spray, and more. The bathroom included a generous supply of quality linens as well as extras such as laundry detergent and dryer sheets. The bed, linens and pillows were very comfortable. We also appreciated the fabulous Tommy Bahama beach chairs. The Internet connection was very reliable. The beach (right next door!) is beautiful. But, the views from the full wall of sliding glass doors is outstanding! You can open the doors to let in the sounds and sights while keeping the bugs out with the screen doors. Lastly, the owner, Jan, was incredibly helpful to us when we had some questions. She was very prompt to reply and provided valuable assistance. We most definitely will be back in the future. Mahalo for sharing your lovely condo with us, Jan and Glenn!

                                                              It was perfect!!

                                                              We just loved staying at your condo... the view was perfect! Loved listening to the waves as we slept!! Loved the air conditioning!

                                                              Glad that you enjoyed your time with us! The views are to die for, and you can't get any closer! And A/C is always a nice option when the fans aren't enough. Please come back again!

                                                              Great vacation rental. Amazing time.

                                                              This was a perfect rental for us on the Kona side of the island. Great view of the ocean, saw whales and dolphins from bed. Beach was right there and snorkeling is available one beach to the south (less than a mile away).

                                                              I would recommend this rental to any couple looking for a jumping off point to enjoy the Big Island.

                                                              Mahalo for the great review! And we are glad the views were a hit! We've got a great location close to everything, but not too close!

                                                              Please come back again!

                                                              An amazing place to stay!

                                                              Love! Love! Love this condo! It was amazing all around! Owners are super nice, condo was super clean and the view is super amazing! Oh my gosh, one of the best condos we have stayed in and want to come back to Kona just to stay here again! I can't think of a thing is was missing - so many things inside the condo from kitchen supplies, cooking spices and similar, beach gear -chairs, umbrellas, coolers - everything we needed to make a perfect beach day! Even some bathroom necessities - shampoo, aloe gel, soap, etc. Laundry soap if you do any, lots of towels, many blankets and pillows and we loved the streaming features on the TV - we were able to log in to our Netflix account - just like home! A nice complex next to the beach and quieter so you don't have to worry about people partying all night. Close to other beaches and shopping, etc. Grocery store down the road is really nice if you cook on your own like we do alot. These owners know how to host a perfect home away from home and hats off to them for making a vacation perfect! Thank you, thank you for sharing your wonderful home so we didn't have to stay in a boring hotel room!

I am so glad that you enjoyed your time with us, and we would love to have you come back to us again!
