Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our wonderful OCEANFRONT CONDO has spectacular views of the OCEAN from almost every room. Watch the moon over the water, the sun sparkling on the waves or dine overlooking the beach and enjoy gorgeous colors of the sunset.

Your romantic oceanfront vacation retreat offers you the option of meals on your lanai with panoramic views of the ocean that is just steps away. Experience the sights and sounds of birds chirping and chattering in the early morning sunshine on your lanai or from the nearby tropical palm trees. And enjoy the spirit of Aloha as your stress and tensions evaporate and you begin to experience all the wonders of the Big Island of Hawaii.

You can view whales, spinner dolphins, and outrigger canoes right from the windows and lanai. Step across Ali’i Drive to White Sands beach (aka Magic or Disappearing Sands) and experience body surfing or just lay on the warm white sand and enjoy the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, and the laughs of beach goers around you. Or, go one mile to the renowned Kahalu’u Beach Park where you will find the best snorkeling on the island. You can swim with honu (turtles) and enjoy the beautiful tropical fish.

One of the great features of White Sands Village Resort is its close proximity to White Sands Beach and a restaurant. If you don’t feel like cooking, some of the best food in Kona is available less than one block away. It’s also a convenient drive to both Kailua-Kona town and the Keauhou Shopping Center. Shopping is always only minutes away.

When evening approaches you return to your island getaway and back to the lanai to enjoy a spectacular sunset. With luck and a clear horizon you may spot the elusive 'green flash.' It will be hard to say Aloha to all this at the end of your visit. But, remember, Aloha means, 'until we meet again.'

We know you will love your stay in paradise.

YOU WILL FIND THAT THIS ULTIMATE CONDO WILL SURPASS ALL OF YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR YOUR WELL DESERVED VACATION.

Completely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. Location, convenience, quality, quick responses.

The views are amazing and one of the only "sand" beaches in the nearby area, right across the street! Fully stocked with supplies and conveniences like beach towels and chairs, extra fans, boogie boards, dish washing and laundry soap (even though we found them after we bought some), and a variety of chairs, lounges and rocking chairs on the lanai.

The only thing we didn't like was having to leave.

Thank you Gayle. We will recommend it and hope to return.

great sunset views from your lanai

  • 4 of 5

Great location and spacious enough for the adults and kids to have their own space. Beach across the street was perfect for us. Would stay here again.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

As expected it was a bit noisy but who cares, we were in Hawaii. We woke up every morning to the site of surfers, spinner dolphins and a great beach view. We will be back and hopefully to the same unit.

Wonderful Wrap Around Lanai

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in this condo, especially the lanai and the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves crashing in. We had breakfast outside every morning. There are 3 huge sliding doors in the living room and when opened keep the condo cool - no need for AC. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything needed. We found the beds a little hard, but that is a personal preference. There are 2 beach chairs in the closet, but with 4 adults, we would have liked 2 more. White Sands Village is located about 3 miles south of Kona and about 2 miles from a grocery store, so a car is required.

Grumpy Owner sours trip

  • 2 of 5

A week or so before my trip, VRBO sent me an email warning me that this vacation rental may be a scam. When I called the owner, she was extremely put out and grumpy that I would deign to contact her. She didn't exactly reassure me that the rental was for real, and basically hung up on me. Suffice to say, the condo did exist but the owners sour presence lingered throughout our trip. On our second morning at 9:30 am, I was awoken by a stranger barging in through the door while I was in my nightgown. She told me to "get out" and asked ""What are you still doing here?" I told the woman she must be mistaken, that I was paid for another 10 days. She persisted to hassle me, so I told her to call the owner but that I wasn't going anywhere. She finally makes up an excuse that the owner must have meant the people in the unit downstairs were leaving, but I knew that to be a lie because I saw a car with a local business sign on it in the spot downstairs and saw someone living there. It's the second day of our vacation and my partner and the kids are getting the most rude and absurd awakening they have ever had. I was being treated like an interloper on my own vacation. And now knowing the owner allows others to have access to the unit during your stay, I wonder if people's personal items are safe. Although I was seduced by the view and the lanai, the apartment was out dated and not in the best state of repair. The beds were so uncomfortable that we ended up buying air mattresses to put on the living room floor. The top rack of the dishwasher is pieced together with rubber bands. There's also an electrical panel that cannot close in the second bathroom which seems very unsafe for children. It would only take one specialized screw to fix but it remains perilously cracked open in a wet environment. The very old floor lamps kept shocking us. Traffic on Ili'i Dr. can be very loud, but the view of Magic's is great. Heard they are going to be tearing up the grounds for sewers so make sure construction won't be going on during your stay. Heard some members of the condo board talking in the hot tub and they were like a senior citizen cast of "Mean Girls"...talking about how they want to approve construction during Ironmam and then cackling about it. The pool had a list of rules long enough to actually make you laugh. The pool is pleasant and relatively uncrowded. The complex is dated. Overall, dealing with this owner left an extremely unpleasant taste.

Owner's Response: I have No Idea what this guest is talking about. None of the things happened as she discribed. NO ONE barged into their room as NO ONE has access to it. There was never a lady that walked in on them because if there was she would have contacted me and this is the First I have heard about it and then she thinks she has the right to write a nastygram and make accusations that ARE NOT True. THIS Guest is Not dealing with a full deck. I have Never Ever Heard of anything such as this guest described here, I have NO Idea Where she dreamed this up and what her issues were as NONE of these things happened. I wonder if she was on Drugs because this is Absurd as I have been in this business for 15 years and Never have we been accused of such Absurd incidences because they DID NOT Happen, Except in Her Own Mind that she Dreamed up. This guest is beyond Ridiculous and I am in Shock as to her accusations because they DID NOT happen. She Never Called and informed us of any of the things as she described. She Must have been on flying high on something. These guests also clogged up both sink drains in the kitchen with egg shells, carrots, celery stalks and lord only knows what else. A Normal person would know you don't put those things down the Drain!!! Signed The Manager

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in this condo, (and are planning the return next year). We are a family of four, (two adults, two kids). It is everything you could need or want! Of note, the dryer broke on us in the first few days of our stay. Gayle immediately got someone out there to repair it. I was expecting to just plan on hang drying the rest of our stay, but nope! She was all over it. Thanks for helping our family create another year of great memories!
