About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath With Pool Sleeps 6

Walk to White Sands Beach! Great Dive area. Coral Arches you can swim through just near Magic Sands.

This Oasis of a home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood walking distance from White Sands Beach and very close to Kahalu’u Beach (great snorkeling). It has recently been remodeled and features a vaulted open beam ceiling in addition to Koa wood cabinets throughout. The house comes fully furnished with a spacious, fully stocked kitchen, granite countertops, high end appliances, kitchen bar seating area, large living room, dining room, master suite, and an ocean view lanai perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon drink. The pool is fully tiled and serves as a great place to relax after a busy day snorkeling or boogie boarding at the local beaches. With the sound of the ocean, a nearly constant year around temperature in the 80s, and a yard full of Mango trees, you will definitely enjoy this tropical setting.

The master bedroom is a large, bright, open room with plenty of closet space and vaulted open-beam ceilings. It has a brand new King size bed w/ bedbug and mattress protectors so you can sleep in comfort with piece of mind. The master bath includes granite countertops with double vanities and Koa wood cabinets in addition to a separate area with toilet, large shower and Jacuzzi tub.

In addition to the master suite, there are two additional guest rooms. One room has a queen size bed while the second has two twin beds. All of the beds have brand new mattresses w/ bedbug covers and mattress protectors so your children or additional guests can sleep in comfort with piece of mind also.

Our home also includes an indoor brand new high-end washer and dryer, WiFi access, a large LCD TV with DVD player in case you feel the need catch up on the news or watch a movie, and an entry alarm for added piece of mind.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a tropical home with an open air roof and louvered windows that means there is no need for air conditioning but fans are available when needed. There are stairs in this home, and may not be suitable for guests that have a hard time walking up & down.

Please be aware that living on a tropical island you may encounter the native insects & wildlife (geckos) both inside & outside of the home. The property is regularly serviced by Terminex, but we cannot guarantee that the insects & wildlife will stay outside.

***The Home also sits on top of 3 other studio occupied units that share the pool area.

Why Aloha Kona Rentals chose Kailua-Kona

This home is located in a quiet neighborhood while still being close to the water!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nice home just a short walk from the beach. Clean with lots of space. Even though the pool is shared with other residents we never saw them making it basically private.

Acceptable but Dissappointing, Low Value for the Money

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at the "Magic Sands Oasis" from Jan 18-28, 2018. I'll do my best to provide a fair and accurate assessement of our experience.


+ It's located in Kona, Hawaii

+ Lots of fans = AC not needed this time of year

+ Located on quiet street

+ Good proximity to beaches, shops, and restaurants

+ Professional and responsive management company


- Adequately clean, but obvious it hadn't been deep cleaned in quite sometime.

- Stains in carpet and furtinture.

- Moldy smell from carpet in entryway.

- 3rd Bedroom very small, not good for adults or older children

- Bare minimum amount of towels and wash cloths.

- Only one set of sheets per bed (no spares if you have kids)

- Washer barrel out of balance and made loud noise during spin cycle. Manager was responsive, however it was not repaired during our stay.

- Ants and cockroaches abundant (moreso than other Hawaii rentals)

- Master bath shower moldy with chipped and missing tile

- Minimally stalked kitchen

- Pool tiles missing, lounger chairs sun-rotted.

- Minimal beach chairs, toys, snorkel gear (bring or rent your own). No instructions for where equipment was kept.

- The bottom of the house has permanent private renters. They came in late making noise several nights and took up space in the ONE shared trash can. It was overflowing after a week.

General Impression:

The professional pictures of the house and pool on VRBO are misleading. It is not as nice as the pictures make it out to be. For me, it was adequate but not worth the price. We've rented several VRBOs in Hawaii and this was the lowest value to cost I've experienced. You can get a much nicer place a little further from the beach for the same or less money. Magic Sands Beach is very small and rocky anyway. We usually drove to beaches north of Kona or went to Kahaluu to snorkel, which is a little too far to walk with kids and all their stuff.

Kona Favorites:

Beach = Kua Bay

Snorkel = Capt' Cook (take morning Fairwind snorkel cruise)

Restaurant = Umeke's seafood for lunch or Rays of the Bay at the Sheraton to watch the sunset and view manta rays at night.

Local Snokeling from Beach = Kahaluu Beach Park

If you do only one activity in Kona, make it the morning snorkel cruise on the Fairwind. It's a large family friendly boat with the cleanest bathrooms and the nicest crew I've ever seen. Snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay is the best I've seen in all of Hawaii.

Very nice upper floor

  • 4 of 5

It is about 6 blocks to the beach, which generally is sand-less.

The pool is clean.

The lower floor has at least one family in it.

The Kitchen/family room is excellent.

The details of the house are nicely done.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This place is the complete main floor of a condo. Excellent open kitchen, main room with all the necessary amenities. The place was clean, maintained, and easy to get in and out of. There is no air conditioning, however windows all open for good ventilation. Master suite is magnificent. 2nd bedroom adequate. 3rd bedroom has two short twins and no room to spare... our adult kids were squished. Location fit our needs. Wish the beaches close by were bigger and not so crowded.

We enjoyed our stay...

Beautiful home, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We hit the jackpot with the White Sands Oasis home! Our stay in Kona was all the more relaxing in large part to this beautiful home. The home is spacious, comfortable, quiet, and located in a great location. The check-in process was simple and we were pleasantly surprised with all the available amenities. Lots of towels and linens, a new washer/dryer, all the utensils and flatware you could possibly need, and a nice big pool. The drive way is plenty big for 2 vehicles and there seemed to be lots of street parking as well.

This home is a stone's throw from the popular Ali'i drive which makes walks to the beach quick and easy. Keauhou shopping center is a quick 5 minute drive if you need groceries, toiletries, or ready made food. The surrounding homes in the area were well kept and everyone around was incredibly friendly. Really, what more could you ask for?

We loved the White Sands Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for 2 weeks and all family members loved the property.

Perfect location to get anywhere along the Kona coast, north or south. Very close to town centre but still very quiet and relaxed setting. Located in a lovely residential neighborhood with lots of mature trees to provide a feeling of privacy. No traffic noise after about 9 at night.

The house was very clean and nicely prepared for our arrival. The kitchen and great room are fabulous, love the big open ceilings with lots of fresh air circulation. The 25 foot granite island made the kitchen very functional for our group to prepare dinners. Maybe you could add a few more kitchen necessities. A better coffee maker would be great for brewing that second to none Kona coffee.

The downstairs tenants were very friendly and helpful when needed but also very quiet and unobtrusive. Hardly knew they were there.

The kids loved the pool and were in it daily , even after swimming in the ocean all day, right up till sunset. We mainly barbequed meals but the range was excellent also. All the appliances were newer, stainless and good quality.

Beds were good , comfortable and linens were sparkling white.

We can certainly recommend the house and Brad, the manager. We would love to return to this very location.

Great for a family with teens

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this rental. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was particularly enormous. The living room could use a little more seating, but it's workable. The beaches are 10-15 minute walk, and there's a nearby public access where we saw sea turtles in tide pools almost every day.

One word of caution-make sure you are given all necessary access codes before arrival!! We were not given the security alarm code and as result, we set off the (VERY LOUD) alarm when we arrived. Thank goodness someone from the rental agency happened to show up and disarm it.

Otherwise, a very nice, relaxing stay. We would come back and recommend it.
