About the property

Condo, Studio 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

You will be greeted with stunning views and ocean breezes from this ocean front, first floor studio with private (not shared) secured wifi internet, cable smart tv and new furnishings. Dolphins, sea turtles, whales and outrigger canoes can be seen from the railing.

The white sands beach is nestled directly next to the condo with a park on the other side where hula girls enjoy practicing and fish-filled snorkeling reef right out front!

Avoid driving to the beach and be at ease, using the complimentary beach towels, snorkeling and boogie boards while only steps from the white sand. Or take the two bikes for a little ride down to the Kona Farmer's Market. Relax at home under the fan and enjoy the sunsets from the new queen sleeper sofa (replaced August '15) or while bbqing poolside.

We take pride in our condo and would love to have you as our guest on your next trip to Hawaii!

Some of the features you will find in our condo include: cal king size bed, dresser, bedding, towels, queen size pull out sofa bed (new August 2015), 4 person dinning table, 50' wall mounted smart HD flat screen TV and cable (we re-did the cable line for better picture quality), 2 Bikes (fun to cruise around town), microwave, convection oven, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker and bean grinder, as well as dishes and silverware, ceiling fans, handheld shower wand, blow dryer, hair straightener, hair curler, iron and steamer, boogie boards, snorkels and masks, fishing gear, beach towels, sand toys, binoculars (to see the dolphins and whales that swim by right outside the sliding glass door) and floor fan.

This unit is great because there is no elevator at Magic Sands and after a long day, it's nice to avoid stairs. The sound of the ocean is wonderful and you can't beat passing extra drinks over the railing when you need to go back for more! We strive to make this condo as nice as we can for ourselves and you as our guest!

About Kona Magic Sands Condos:

Kona Magic Sands is a well maintained, small, 3 story condo complex with lawn and pool that sits directly between Kona Magic Sands Beach and the park. It is unique amongst some of the condos in Kona since it sits directly facing the ocean and some other condos put the guest rooms at an angle to squeeze more rooms in with a “view.” Some of the recent upgrades to the condo complex include: new paint, the pool re-plastered with turtle mosaic, new second bbq, landscape maintenance as well as frequent deep cleanings. There is a fantastic and helpful on site Manager, Lori, that takes care of many aspects of the condo and is kind to help with directions or other local questions. There is plenty of seating at the pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as two complimentary BBQs. But one of our favorite parts of KMS is that there never seems to be a crowd! There is also trolley that stops right outside of the condo that will take you to the grocery plaza and also loops to downtown Kona a couple of miles away.

About Kimberly Todd

We bought this ocean front condo, after much searching, as a vacation spot for ourselves to enjoy over and over again. We live and work in California, but vacation here (no passport required)!

Kimberly Todd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kimberly Todd chose Kona Coast

Convenience! The Beach is directly next door, park on the other side and ocean view with dolphins and turtles right out the glass doors. Care free attitude surrounds the place and it is located only 20 minutes from the airport. The first floor requires no climbing of stairs which is great for us. Located On Ali'i Drive near shopping, restaurants and activities. Near the pool with great views too.

What makes this condo unique

Almost everything provided, just bring a clothes, swim suit and a smile! Care free convenience allows for the aloha spirit.

Great location and really is best bang for your buck!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week here with my boyfriend and had a great stay! Super easy dealing with the Todd's, communication via email was quick and efficient. Check in and out super easy.

Great ocean view from the condo, and literally a one minute walk to White Sands Beach which we loved.

Best part we loved was all the gear that we were able to use from the condo. We didn't bring any of our own snorkeling gear (too much space in the luggage) so we had access to all the masks and fins and boogie boards and pool noodles. This was definitely a plus over the other vbro condos we were looking at and don't regret it! Would definitely stay here again if we came back to Big Island!

The only downside I can think off is there is no AC. Not a big deal but it can get very warm inside!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was functional and is as pictured. We slept two in the big bed and two kids on the pull out couch. The location of Kona Magic Sands is excellent. The beach next door was really fun for my boys. We went to many beaches in the island and kept coming back to 'our beach.' The sand was good for building and the surf was big enough for body surfing and boogie boarding. The pool and barbecue area were great for gatherings and I appreciated the mellow atmosphere. We will definitely return.

Perfect oceanfront setting

  • 4 of 5

Location was ideal as it was right on the oceanfront, close to town, adjacent to a nice beach which also gives access to good snorkelling in front of the condo.

We enjoyed using the beach gear available for us.

Owner/manager very accommodating when responding to any issues.

Closet/dresser/storage space virtually non existent (for luggage, shoes, clothes etc|)

Grounds maintenance staff very efficient, helpful and friendly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Roger - we're glad to have had you stay with us! I wanted to make sure that any guests concerned with storage/space know that they can see photos of the full sized closet with shelves, hanging cubbies, hangers, iron and ironing board as well as the storage space under the night stands. Also, the on-site manager can store large luggage in a locked closet for the duration of your stay if needed. The studio condo best fits two people.

R & R

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our last 3 nights stay here on the Big Island. As this was our second time visiting the Big Island, our intention was to do more activities around a centralized location on Kailua Kona and Captain cook area. Loved watching the sunset the one night, we enjoyed having the doors open to keep the room cool. We found we had to close the door at nights as the surf was quite loud but we preferred them open when we were at the condo. We were intending to use the Bikes that were available but we ended up spending our time snorkeling and Kayaking around Captain Cook. As for the Kitchen, it was well equip for our breakfast and dinners.

Nice condo great location.

  • 4 of 5

We loved this spot. Right next to Magic Sands Beach. We had the pool all to ourselves most days. The condo is small but nice. Perfect for two people. Might be a bit crowded for 4 people. Only thing we would suggest is a dresser so you could unpack your suit case. The owner was very responsive answering question and solving a minor issue with keys to the pool area. Highly recommended!

Love that view from cozy, comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your place in Hawaii. I don't know if it's helpful to list all the things that we liked about your place. We loved the view out the back, found the doors shielded the noise from the surf quite well when shut, but we preferred them open whenever we were awake and at home. The bikes worked great for short errands. The dishes and pans covered all our needs, we ate breakfast at home every day, but ate out most other meals, except for leftovers. We watched a couple movies on the new TV screen and never watched TV. Clothing storage space was a little tight, but since it was just the two of us, living out of suitcase was fine with a few hangups in the closet. We loved the dining table near the back door for a great view while enjoying a relaxing meal. Equally nice was the sunset view while sitting on the couch. The decor is great too. Being able to walk to the beach next door for some of the best snorkeling that I've had on any tropical island was the best highlight for me. The variety of fish was impressive as were the total number of fish. I usually only see that many fish where this fish are routinely fed. The close to centralized location allowed us to do a number of activities and still have some quality relaxation time hanging out at the home base where it is typically quiet. We were only there for a week, but it felt like home right away. With so many options of activities to choose from, we felt limited by time and money, but really liked the things we choose: Zipline in Hilo, scuba, snorkel, swim w/ manna-rays at night, church at Living Stones on Alii Dr, start gazing tour on Mauna Kea, dinner at Huggos, trips to never enough beaches.
