Picture yourself in paradise, a spacious elevator-accessible top floor 1 bedroom 2 bath condo with expansive living/dining area. Step out onto a double-wide tiled lanai with beautiful ocean & mountain views. We are in the most quiet & private building in the back of the White Sands Village complex, right across from Magic Sands Beach, the only white sand swimming beach in Kona. You are far from traffic noise and next to a natural preserve. Wake to the sounds of parrots and other wild birds.
Begin and end a day of frolicking in the ocean waves right across the street. Or take advantage of the newly renovated heated salt water swimming pool, spa, tennis courts, sauna, game room with pool table, and use one of the 4 gas BBQ grills. Or simply enjoy the colorful, beautifully manicured White Sands Village foliage and swaying palm trees.
At day's end, watch a spectacular sunset from your lanai as the sea breezes cool you off and warm your heart. Wonderful breezes sweep through the rooms most of the year with both front and rear screen doors for ventilation, a multitude of floor and ceiling fans available to contribute to the flow.
Our condo was originally a thousand square foot two bedroom apartment. It was converted to one bedroom in order to double the living room / dining room space. It will feel large compared to many other units.
You'll have no stairs to negotiate - your covered parking space is right by the elevator which lets you off right near your front door.
The condo is newly renovated with mango wood cabinets and hardwood floors in every room. Picture yourself in a well-organized kitchen complete with updated double-wide refrigerator, dishwasher, electric stove/oven and microwave, and toaster, blender, coffee maker and other appliances. The dining room table seats eight, next to a cabinet storing Palm Tree dishes and glassware, or, if you prefer, simple white stoneware is available in a kitchen cabinet.
The bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed has been recently updated. The two bathrooms give you a choice of a beautiful tiled shower with bench or a tub/shower combination with glass backsplash.
Comfortable recliners look out to the lanai which has its own dining table with four chairs. A new queen size sofa bed completes a cozy combo facing the 48" Sony flatscreen TV for kicking back and enjoying cable entertainment nestled in with lots of art on the walls and lanai.
All new linens, towels, and bedding, beach chairs, sand mats and ice chests are available for your enjoyment. A stacked washer/dryer awaits. There is lots of closet space filled with everything you might need including an iron!
Our local caretaker, Chris, will meet you either during or shortly after your arrival for an orientation and to answer any questions in order to insure your stay is the absolute best it can be.
To prepare for your on-island pursuits, a local land line phone and travel binder and brochures are at your fingertips as well as a charging station including two USB ports for all of your electronics. The phone may be used to make calls to anywhere in the US or Canada at no charge.
Snorkeling among the hundreds of colorful exotic fish in the calm waters at Kahaluu Beach Park, only a mile south, is grand for both novices and the more experienced alike. Waves break just right at the north end of the park, making it a perfect location to learn how to surf under the guidance of local instructors.
Keauhou Shopping Center which hosts KTA Supermarket, Longs Drug, Regal Movie Theaters and many smaller shops and restaurants is only another mile south.
Kona Country Club's top notch golf courses are open to the public and are also only 2 miles away. Keauhou Bay, also in the same area is the launching point for many water based tours and activities on the Kona Coast. Downtown Kailua-Kona with its many attractions is only a little over three miles north. And you must visit Gypsea Gelato, which we believe has the best gelato outside of Europe, in the town of Kealakekua, a scenic 15 minute drive away.
One of the best things is how quiet it is. Most oceanfront accommodations along Alii Drive suffer from some traffic noise. We are far enough from the road so that we don't have any. And at White Sands Village, the lanais in the front two buildings face each other over the pool area. In our building in the back, we have the utmost in privacy and we are not looking into someone else's apartment. And, being on the top floor, we don't have to worry about hearing someone's footsteps over us!
You will need to sign a rental contract and agree to abide by the White Sands Village House Rules in order for your booking to be finalized. Contact us for a copy to review.
Hawaii Law requires that we post our Transient Accommodations Tax ID. Ours is TA-124-260-9664-01
