About Kira Monteiro

We have been frequent visitors to the Big Island for the last 20 years. We live in Washington state and love to be able to escape to the warmth of Kona whenever we can. We have three children who share our love of the Islands. Kona holds a very special place in our hearts. We were married at the Keauhou Resort in 2001. We hope to retire in this amazing location and continue to enjoy it with our children and grandchildren for years to come.

Kira Monteiro purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kira Monteiro chose Kailua-Kona

In 2010, we were fortunate enough to be able to purchase our dream vacation home at White Sands Village. We have always loved this location and it was always our first choice when looking into reservations. When we first walked into our unit we knew we had found our perfect home. Our children were so excited they were going to return again and again to their favorite beach, Magic Sands. There have been many trips to White Sands Village when we have spent most of our time right here at Magic Sands!

What makes this condo unique

There are so many wonderful benefits to enjoy while staying in our home. From the sound of the waves to the amazing view. Our home is very comfortable and so convenient. We enjoy meals out on the lanai and spend hours out there reading or chatting or just enjoying the tropical breeze coming off the ocean. The 'commute' to the ocean is the best part...less than a minute and you're there! It's simply perfection!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in your condo. The location is great and we ate all our meals out on the lanai looking at the ocean! Slept with the windows open to listen to the waves.

If we ever go back (I hope we do) we will definitely try booking your condo again. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

NEVER disappoints!

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth time staying at the Monteiro's condo. That first view of Magic Sands beach from the lanai when we arrive is like a hug for the soul! The kitchen is VERY well stocked with more than enough tongs! Three pair to be exact! We were extremely comfortable and the ceiling fans in every room were lovely. We can't wait to go back to Kona and we will most certainly be staying in the Monteiros condo again. It has everything we could want or need!

Best stay we’ve found near Magic Sands Beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as advertised. Great location across the street from Magic Sands beach which we also could see from our balcony. The condo is clean, updated and tropically decorated. The kitchen was large and well stocked with all the amenities you will need - the fridge looks brand new and spotless inside-I’m Ms. Clean! We were a group of two couples and it was very roomy and comfortable. Plenty of space on the lanai which overlooks the beach with lots of chairs for sitting for morning coffee or watching the sunset. There is plenty of beach equipment - a couple of beach chairs and even two umbrellas. The cooler also came in very handy on our trips exploring the island. Mark and Kira gave us outstanding customer service and responded immediately when called. We took advantage of the many recommendations they had for exploring some off the beaten trail locations. We will definitely recommend this condo to our family and friends and should we return someday will hope to stay in this unit.

Lovely location,especially with the beach across the street, great amenities, lots of room in condo and on lanai. Very very clean and no bugs! Living room furniture not very comfortable to sit on, but as we were out most of the time it was not too much of a problem. People in complex very friendly and gave good tips on places to eat out and to go to. Would definitely recommend this place to friends and hope to someday go back ourselves. Mark and Kira phoned to check on us and see if there were any problems and that was a nice touch. Mahalo for renting to us. Lynda

Great Stay and Best Location

  • 5 of 5

Such a great location at this property. We really enjoyed everything about our trip and our accomadations were better than we could have hoped for. Clean and comfortable.

We were pleasantly surprised with what appeared to be new appliances and many extras such as spices, condiments, beach gear and coolers.

The owners were waiting on a new AC to be shipped from the mainland and gave us the option of refund if we didn't want to stay without the central air functioning 100%. They checked on us everyday to make sure the auxillary unit they had supplied was working for us. We appreciated their communication and between the central air fan and the portable AC, it was more than sufficient for us as we loved opening up the lanai doors to hear the waves from the beach.

We would recommend this unit to our friends and family. And hope to visit again soon.

Thank you Mark and Kira for the use of your home. Your hospitality and concern were much appreciated. Mahalo

Great Location, Awful Service

  • 1 of 5

Let me start by saying that the condo/amenities at the property and the location are great, but the owner's customer service was severely lacking. We arrived at the condo a little after check in time to find the thermostat in the unit reading 83 degrees. We didn't think much of it as it was possible that the A/C hadn't been on between guests. What we came to find out was that the A/C for the unit was broken. When we called the owner's they stated that they had purchased a window unit for one bedroom and fans for the rest of the condo and that a replacement part had been ordered and would arrive sometime in the next 30 days. One window unit is not a substitute for central A/C. The coldest the unit ever registered was 75 degrees and that was at 11pm at night. The owner's knew of this problem before our arrival and did not think it necessary to inform us of it. We all ended up sleeping in the small secondary guest room where the AC unit was located. Also, when we checked in the fridge and freezer were not cooling properly. We were told that they were fine and to give them time to cool down. Two days later we came back to the condo to find that the fridge had leaked all over the kitchen and in the hallway and would most likely need to be replaced. Finally, the welcome book in the condo stated that children who were not potty trained were not allowed in the pool. This would have been nice to know before we booked since we were traveling with a 2 year old. Would I stay in this complex again? Yes! Would I stay in this unit again? Yes, but only if it were under different ownership.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately this review is not an accurate account of the situation. Thank you for taking a moment to read our response. Unforeseen situations do occur but we are always available to respond and do our very best to work with our guests. We desire a positive experience for them and their comfort and enjoyment is very important to us. With our guests arriving in less than 4 hours, we were notified by our agent that the air did not seem to be cooling as well as usual so we called our repair person in to look at it. He advised us that although working, it was struggling to cool past 73 and had become inefficient. New unit was ordered and sent from mainland. In the mean time we had our agent purchase a large portable AC unit and extra fans to help keep the air cool. We then unsuccessfully tried to advise the guests through their phone and email. At check in time we tried calling the land line in the condo many times to speak with the guests but were unable to reach them. Once we did speak to the guests we offered many possible solutions for them including a full refund as well as assistance in locating alternate accommodations. The guests chose to stay in the unit. We kept in contact with them for the first three days, checking to make sure that things were going more smoothly and to also discuss the refrigerator. They had thought it not to be working when they first came in and unloaded all of their food from the store. It takes a while for the whole refrigerator of warm items to cool. We sent out our agent immediately to check and were informed that the refrigerator was functioning properly. The ice was all frozen and the food was cooling. Once these issues seemed to be solved we advised them to contact us at any time if things changed. Fast forward a few days and they called to say the refrigerator was leaking. Our agent went back out within the hour and discovered that the refrigerator was still working fine but somehow the water dispenser handle had been damaged and the water was leaking from the dispenser. At this point we decided to replace the unit as it was more cost effective. New refrigerator has been installed. We were under the impression from our many conversations with these guests that we had satisfied their concerns as they did not want to move to other accommodations. As our many other positive reviews show, we strive to be great hosts and not just owners. Mahalo for your understanding.
