About Alice Hughes

Having an oceanfront property in Hawaii is one of our greatest blessings. We have lived in Hawaii since the 70s and want to share our love of this wonderful place with our guests. We want our guests to have a healthy, romantic, joyfull and interesting vacation in a place that is very well maintained, peaceful and a restful place where one can really relax.

Alice Hughes purchased this condo in 2008

Why Alice Hughes chose Kailua-Kona

This is such a romantic and healthy place to be - right on the clean warm ocean in Hawaii. I know that location is key. This location is the best- on the ocean,walk to the beach, next to a park all at a price that is more than fair. What more could you ask for!

What makes this condo unique

All my guests just rave about how they love this beach front studio. First thing in morning the ocean water is so glassy and clean, I just love it and so will you! It is such a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second time at "Magic Sands" we are convinced it is the best place to stay in Kona. We will return! The breeze was warm, the ocean colorful and the condo was complete with everything we needed. Thank-you Alice for your courtesy , We hope to return soon.

Can't Wait To Come Again!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after a great week in Kona and a stay at Kona Magic Sands. What I really liked was the closeness of the unit to the ocean and to the White Sands beach next door. The sound of the ocean waves put us to sleep every night as we left the sliding glass doors open and relaxed with the mesmerizing crashing of the waves. And being so close to the cute little beach next door, we could go out for a morning swim, or body surf in the evening on a moment's notice as the sun set. On two different mornings we saw groups of dolphins (10 to 15 each) swimming as we looked from our unit's window. So we hurried out to the water and were thrilled as dolphins swam under and around us!

This was our first time to Kona and the Magic Sands property is just a few miles south of the city center. It was certainly close enough to drive easily to restaurants or for shopping. As the Kona airport is north of town I suggest stopping at Costco, Walmart, or Safeway and stocking up your condo as you drive in, especially if you use Costco as it is very close to the airport. Try the hole in the wall restaurant 808 Grindz if you'd like some bang for your buck with an Hawaiian touch.

My wife and I were very active and went all over the island during our week going to Black Sands beach in the south, Volcanoes National Park, a hike up to the top of 13,800 ft Mauna Kea, and a hike down to the Captain Cook's monument for snorkeling, and another state park to the north for snorkeling. I must say, however, that the coral and clear water just outside the Magic Sand's unit was as good as any spot we went to. And by the end of our week we were quite happy to just stay put and relax.

At 400 sq. ft the unit is compact but has most everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. The wifi and cable worked flawlessly and you could still get service even while sitting out by the pool. We used the snorkels, fins, and masks that came with the unit. There is also a boogie board for body surfing and some portable Tommy Bahama beach chairs you can take next door to the beach. The cupboards and fridge had many common food items like condiments, sauces, or seasonings so you don't have to buy all of these for your meals which was nice. And the A/C was handy in the late afternoon when it got hot. Be aware that there is no washer/dryer in the unit. All in all, we were very happy with the unit and would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: My pictures show exactly how this property is. Perhaps you did not read my listing about this very well priced oceanfront in Hawaii condominium. I know you asked me to revise your booking because it was not in the area you expected and it is unfortunate that the oven (apartment sized) was to small for your needs. My apologizes. I have beautiful tile flooring , granite counter tops and a new refrigerator and new bedding. I always work hard to update and maintain this property. I hope that my not charging you for the set of keys you lost or the extra cleaning will make you feel better about your stay.

Great Place to Stay - Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

The view and the location are the main reasons to book! Alice's place has everything we needed from everything to cook with to beach essentials such as chairs, towels & snorkels. It was just my husband & I and it was the perfect size for 2. Some people complain about the loud waves while falling asleep, just bring some earrplugs and stop complaining. You are in paradise! We slept every night with the sliding glass door open to fall asleep to the crashing waves. Alice was nice enough to call us on our last evening to chat about our stay. Check out my blog post at http://www.closet-creep.com/ about our visit and the Magic Sands Beach next door.

Owner's Response: I really love it when people have a wonderful stay at my condo! The location is amazing and I love to share this beautiful spot and experience! The photos you posted on your blog are so cool. I loved them all and it is a treat for me to see my guests since I feel like we have become acquainted when we arranged the booking but most time we do not meet in person. I also call my guests the day before departure to express my gratitude to them for vacationing with me and also check to see if everything was in good order. Thank you and congratulations on your anniversary!

HAWAII PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

When we want to get away & visit HAWAII we stay at this unit at the Kona Magic Sands! It is our favorite because it is cozy, clean, has an ocean view of the beautiful Kona Coast & all the supplies are provided we need to explore the ocean in front of us.

A few steps away is the Kona White Sands Beach where we can snorkel, swim, body surf or just take a relaxing nap on the beach.

The view from the unit is award winning for photos of the sunset or he dolphins in the morning. We have many good memories of the romantic gorgeous Kona sunsets in our photo album at home.

Some of the art in the unit is from a famous big island artist who is also the owner which makes it personal and full of the Aloha Spirit Hospitality.

The best is falling asleep to the soothing sound of the ocean waves and waking up feeling rested and close to the ocean to jump in and wake up!

The kitchen is a bonus. There is a common laundry room on property , free assigned parking, and a grassy park just a few steps away. The pool is fun, clean and complete with a BBQ area and outdoor shower.

Keauhou shopping center with cultural activities and farmers market is a short drive away and so is Kona town.

We usually end up not going too far from the unit and end up chillaxing right on property. Why go anywhere when everything is right in front of you. All we need to do is show up! Can not wait to return to Hawaii Paradise again soon. We absolutely would recommend staying here.

Mahalo and Aloha , Ann and Mark Stevens
