About The Owner

Aloha Ted & Darlene Carson

We are true Islanders from growing up in Victoria B.C.on Vancouver Island . We love the ocean, we have a water front home in Nanaimo and a condo on the beach .We are from west coast marine climate, we love the fact that Kona only gets 8 to 10 inches of rain annually. If we get home sick we can always go to the hills behind Hilo.We also like the average temperatures 81 to 87 unlike the desert extremes 67 January to 107 July. Love the trade winds and walks along Alii drive. We look forward to being your HOSTS. Mahalo Ted & Darlene

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

The unit 314 has been tastefully updated with antique furniture. It's 3 miles South of the main Kona strip which I regard as a good thing. But it is still on Alii Drive for nice morning or evening peaceful walks. Yet you are only minutes away from town.It has a great location right next to the ocean. You couldn't be closer without being in it. The view on this total glass corner unit really makes it and allows for fabulous sunset views. This unit has a large WOW factor.

What makes this condo unique

The size of the condo. Most of the condos at Kona Magic Sands are 400 sq ft ours is 660 sq ft. The Lani's is enclosed, so you can sit at your table with the glass doors open and see and hear the waves. You also wake up in the morning and sit up in bed and see the ocean. It's amazing.Dophins and Whales are often seen right out in the ocean from your unit.

It's right on Magic Sands Beach, which is a great beach. There aren't a ton of swimming beaches right in Kona and this one is one of the best. Some of the best boogie boarding and snorkeling on the Island. 314 is on the 3rd floor with extra great views and no street noise. It is air conditioned ,has a spa tub and numbered parking. Separate Wifi with network cable ports,road runner Time Warner Cable

Absolutely amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. The views were amazing. It's spacious. I loved that it had beach towels, snorkels, chairs, umbrella, & boogie boards. The ocean is right out side your window. The bed was comfy. Some furnishings are a little outdated but we didn't come to stay in the room. Kitchen was functional and had all you would need to make a meal. A/c & on site laundry room was a huge plus! Very close to the beach but no trouble with street noise.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet third floor condo next to "Magic Sands Beach" great place to body-board and snorkel once you get past the surf. So quiet it was like we lived there, had our own reserved parking space. Close enough to the shops, grocery stores and restaurants to enjoy them but far enough away for a nice retreat. The exterior walls are all glass and have sliding doors. When opened the ocean breeze and sights, smell and sounds of the surf striking the rocks fills the condo. We slept with the doors open almost every night, great to fall asleep to. Condo has AC but only used it when we closed the doors because it was too hot in middle of the day. Updated bathroom and kitchen, refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, large counter and food prep area. Four seater table and chairs and nice tv w basic cable. Pool and washer/dryer for the condos We will definetly try to stay here again soon.

Stunning view!

  • 4 of 5

This place is very special. The panoramic view of the ocean is reason enough to stay here, and we hope to book the place again. We received prompt and helpful instructions for our arrival. The place was clean and lovely. And again-- the view itself is the reason to stay here. We saw yellow fish in the waves right off the shore, turtles, and dolphins! Right next door is Magic Sands beach. There is a small, lovely pool. The only thing that keeps us from giving it 5 full stars are minor--but they are the kinds of things that do distinguish a 4 from a 5 star place. We'd stay here again in a heart beat. So while, I'll mention them, I repeat that they are minor. The kitchen is sparsely appointed. We bought and donated a pasta strainer and a large bowl for salad, which made all the difference. The pans are scratched teflon, which made us wary of using them. The water pressure is pretty low, making the shower less than refreshing. And the complex itself has an insect problem. I know, I know-- this is Hawaii. I totally get it. But again, 5 star places have that figured out. Finally, the road noise-- loud cars and bass radios are audible from inside, although the crashing waves do drown it out a bit. Don't let those things detract you from booking here.

Views, location, comfort cannot be beat. We felt so lucky to have stayed here.

  • 5 of 5

Well kept unit with openness, light, style and views. Property is in good shape and quite comfortable. And location between family-friendly beach and public park are beyond perfect. We had a blast right here and using this a base to explore the island.
