About the Property

Oceanfront First Floor Studio Condo

Stay on the famous Ali'i drive next to Kona's best beach- Magic Sands! In this modern studio, you'll have unobstructed, picturesque sunset views over the Pacific every evening while the waves crash at your door. What could be better for a relaxing tropical vacation?

We purchased this beautiful unit in 2013 and continuously renovate many aspects of the unit to keep it as modern and clean as possible.

Sleep next to the ocean! Though it is a studio, the unit features convenient shoji doors that can create two rooms, and can accommodate as many as four.

-Designated FREE parking space 8 ft from the unit
-Bed with comfortable mattress closest to the ocean
-Sleeper sofa that can accommodate an extra two people
-Dining table for four
-Fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel fridge, blender, pots and pans, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, microwave, oven, etc.
-Chaise lounge chair facing the ocean- PERFECT for reading on lazy afternoons or watching the sunset in the evening
-Free wifi
-2016 large SMART flat screen TV- you can stream Hulu, Netflix, etc. from your account
-Beach gear: body boards, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, cooler, noodles, snorkel gear, kids inflatables
-Big Island visitor guide books and information

-Unobstructed ocean views right outside the unit (10 ft)
-Pool and lounge chairs belonging to the condo complex (the grassy space seen in pictures outside is in an enclosed and locked area that you and other condo guests, but not the general public, can access
-An outside BBQ
- Coin operated laundry machines ($2.50 for washing and drying)

-Magic Sands Beach next door! Just a 20 second walk away, and no need to drive or find parking
-A beautiful park on the other side of the condo where locals often practice Yoga
-A newly opened sushi restaurant right next to the condo complex
- Miles and miles along Ali'i Drive for running, walking, jogging and cycling along the ocean
-A fantastic snorkeling beach a mile away
-Keauhou shopping center 2 miles away for groceries, restaurants and a drug store

Interaction with guests

☆ This is a completely private unit- you can check in any time after 4 pm, and as there is an access code, you will not have to meet with anyone for keys. I live close by and am available for any assistance if needed. I respond to messages as soon as I see them, usually within the hour. ☆

The neighborhood

☆We are right next to the ocean and the best beach and park in town! Don't hassle with parking, just walk 30 seconds to the beach! Great area for walking/jogging/cycling along the ocean for miles ☆

Getting around

I highly recommend renting a car in advance, as it is necessary to see most of the island but if you choose not to, you can easily take the Honu Express Shuttle around town for $2 a ride.

Magic Sands Beach

Lovely shaded picnic area next to condo, ideal for family picnics or sunset viewing by the ocean, where locals frequently practice hula. No struggles to find a parking spot at the beach so favored by locals and tourists alike. With the pushbutton lock, you don't need to worry about carrying your keys to the beach!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I live in Kailua-Kona and manage this property, which is owned by my family. I respond to messages as soon as I see them, so don't hesitate to write with questions!

Why Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
We love having a piece of property right on the ocean and would love to share our home with you! Come relax next to Magic Sands beach and enjoy the sun and sea.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This condo enjoys the very same views as the neighboring, multi-million dollar oceanfront properties that rent for several hundred dollars per night in this quiet side of Alii Drive, away from the crowds closer to town. Magic Sand has always been our favorite beach, where we swim with the turtles early in the morning. Staying at this condo means you can meander there whenever you like, without having to struggle for one of the limited parking spaces. Another favorite activity is to walk along Alii Drive, past beautiful homes and undeveloped spaces for a brisk morning exercise.
