About Teresa Simmons

Hi - My name is Teresa Simmons. I am from Vancouver Island B.C.

309 was a complate make over . This is something that I really enjoy. Restoring a condo in Kona Magic Sands is very satisfying as it is a special place in a special location. I hope you decide to be my Guest - You wouldn't be dissapointed.

Teresa Simmons purchased this condo in 2012

Why Teresa Simmons chose Kailua-Kona

We love being right on the ocean.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 Kona Magic Sands Beach. The ocean view is great from the condo

What makes this condo unique

The unit is compact and full advantage has been taken of the space allotted. The Lanai is enclosed so you can sit at the kitchen 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. Dolphins 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 is not a ton of swimming beaches right in Kona and this one is one of the best. Some of the best boogie boarding and snorkelling on the Island. 309 is on the 3 rd floor with extra great views and no street noise. It has a numbered parking spot.

What a great location and fabulous View!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great find for visiting the Kona area. When we arrived the outside of the building looked very tired, but the unit itself was fresh and clean and had lovely decor. Our bed was comfy and the view was sensational. Teresa was so easy to communicate with and very pleasant to deal with. The unit is small but well-appointed and the beaches to each side are fabulous! I would highly recommend this to other couples. Thank you for sharing your little bit of paradise!

the property is older but we were comfortable. plenty of dishes, linens and hot water. waves crashing on the rocks made it pretty noisy, especially to watch TV, but the ocean front view was spectacular!

99% perfect

  • 5 of 5

The location, the view from the essentially in room balcony, the one minute walk to magic sands and the great old school Hawaiian decor. We really enjoyed this place and of the three we stayed at while there, this is the place we would return to for the full trip next time. The only complaint was that the mattress seemed a bit worn or too soft and was somewhat hard on the back. While that was our only complaint, it would not keep us from staying here again as everything else exceeded our expectations and gave us those things we value in a beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Mahalo David, Thanks for your review. You missed the new bed by one week unfortunately. A new bed was top on my list which I purchased Jan 11 and found it very comfy for my stay. Glad you liked the old school Hawaiian decor, I try and keep things laid-back.....Kona style!

Fantastic location and view!

  • 4 of 5

To be overlooking the ocean, with a full view, and the sound of the waves, can’t be beat. The only downside was that the bed was too soft for our middle aged backs, and a bit “groany” when we got in and out of it. There wasn’t enough toilet paper or kitchen garbage bags for our 8 day stay. However, the amenities were totally sufficient for us. We enjoyed the pool. We appreciated the air conditioning & being so close to Magic Sands beach and the next beach south which has outstanding snorkeling. Also, the park next to Kona Magic Sands offers yoga at sunset daily by donation. Ali’i Drive is definitely busy & loud (ie pumping bass driving by), but this is mainly drowned out by the surf. I would have given this place 5/5 except for the bed. I would recommend it & stay here again!

Owner's Response: The bed and frame has just been replaced a week following your stay. Even though it was 5yrs old it was top of my list to swap out d/t the noise getting in and out as well as being a little to much on the soft side.

Amazing location, great condo

  • 5 of 5

The views from this condo are so incredible we spent hours watching the ocean. The location next to the lovely Magic Sands Beach makes it close to town as well as close to the best snorkel beach in the area, if not on the island - Kahalu’u Bay. We saw dolphins swimming by the condo almost every day as well as whales spouting. We actually got to swim with a pod of dolphins just off the condo at Magic Sands Beach!

The condo is nicely renovated and very clean and so well equipped with towels and linens, kitchen items, boogie boards, snorkel gear, and everything you need to be comfortable.

I would highly recommend this condo! In fact we have just booked it for a month in 2019.

Please note that this is on the third floor and there is no elevator which could be a problem for some. I just look at it as an opportunity for some extra physical activity.

Thanks for sharing your lovely condo!
