Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: My wife and I are retired and live in Kailua-Kona. We have been coming to the Big Island since 1987. We enjoy the great weather, beautiful clear warm water, the year round outdoor activities, the excellent small beaches, the variety of terrain and weather, and, of course, our many friends.
Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
We bought Kona Magic Sands #203 because of the view of the ocean and the relaxed feeling we got when we stepped out onto the lanai. In 1987, while visiting the Big Island, we decided to look at condos. The first one was at Kona Magic Sands. We immediately liked the location and size. We then viewed every studio and one bedroom condo for sale along Alii Drive in our price range and some that were priced higher. What we found was most condominium buildings were perpendicular to the ocean instead of fronting the ocean as Kona Magic Sands does. The living areas seemed smaller and stuffy. The placement of the condos did not allow the natural breeze to flow into the condo. The one bedrooms had one small window that opened onto a walk way. The bedrooms did not look comfortable. The lanais only had room for a small table and two chairs. The direct view was of the condos across a courtyard. To get a view of the ocean you had to be on the lanai and then it was only a partial ocean view. We felt that not one condo we saw - either studio or one bedroom - came close to what the condos with the larger lanais at Kona Magic Sands had to offer. We still believe these characteristics are as true today as they were in 1989. When KMS #203 came on the market in 1989 we jumped at the opportunity to buy it. We have never regretted our decision. We lived at KMS #203 for awhile but with a lot of sports equipment and arts and crafts supplies, we out grew the condo. But, whenever we are in the condo, we still wish we were living there. It is a special place.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You will find KMS #203 to be a great place to sit back and relax. We designed the interior of the condo to highlight the condo's most important feature - THE OCEAN VIEW. Enhancing the view of the ocean on the inside resulted in comfortable living and sleeping areas with MORE SPACE for you to move around than you may find in most of the condos. A picture is worth a thousand words - just LOOK AT OUR PHOTOS and see for yourself. We completely remodeled KMS #203 in 2000 even taking out the two bathroom walls. Originally, the refrigerator was at the end of the short kitchen countertop. With the renovation we created a nook in the opposite wall for the refrigerator. This allowed us to install one very long kitchen countertop with a desk area. This gives our guests more space to prepare meals than in most of the other condos. The long countertop and the recessed refrigerator provided another benefit. The long clean lines direct your vision to the ocean when you walk in the front door. Before the remodel the condo had floor and table lamps and fans. They were always in the way. KMS #203 now has ceiling fans and overhead track lighting. There are no obtacles to trip over or look through. Just another improvement to help our guests enjoy the view. We installed a queen size Murphy bed with a separate closet and drawers unit on each side of the bed. This unit also has a pull out shelf to be used as a night stand. We elected to have a Murphy bed to give us more space to stretch, add a work table and have friends over,making the KMS #203 seem even bigger. The owners of some of the other KMS condos have installed washer/dryer units and/or closets in their bathrooms. We eleced not to do this because those features make the bathrooms to small. We designed the bathroom to give our guests as much room as possible. SPACE, OPENESS, COMFORT
