About Owner / Manager

Aloha! We fell in love with the Big Island the first time we visited in 2010. We love being in the Big Island and spending the day at one of the numerous beautiful beaches, swimming with turtles, snorkeling in tidepools, hiking to see lava flows to name a few. We decided to make a home here so we can enjoy life in paradise with our children and friends and share it with others.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful home, very comfortable. The grandkids loved the open area to play. The best part was how quiet it is here, no traffic noise.

Great house, steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. This house is very clean and comfortable,with a living room and den with games, an indoor dining room, outdoor grill and patio dining set. It has a well-equipped, full kitchen. There are lots of beach supplies including chairs, boogie boards, buckets, beach towels, all of which we made great use of. The Magic Sands Beach is a very short walk, and we all loved it, especially my kids, who begged to go for even a few minutes between other activities. It was so close we could easily accommodate them! My 13 year old loved riding the waves on the boogie board, and the 8 year old loved jumping in the waves and admiring the turtle who swam through each time we visited the beach. Great location for exploring the whole island. There were ACs in each room, but we didn’t need to use them with the fans and sliding screen doors and windows. Great place, highly recommend, would stay here again for sure.

Beach Condo near glorious "Magic Sands Beach"

  • 5 of 5

Beach Condo has all modern amenities, well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, well functioning air conditioners (central but controlled for each room to save energy), boogie boards and towels for use, and a full size gas grill.

Grounds are shared with an upstairs tenant but this caused no issues regarding noise or use of amenities. A plus is the "family room" with a huge TV and sofa for relaxing (and a place for kids to escape without danger)

Highlight however is the proximity to Magic Sands Beach which is a great beach for swimming and bodysurfing -- beware after November the locals indicated Magic Sands Beach often loses its sand due to rough surf -- guess the Magic only works so far

We had one issue with our stay -- an empty propane tank for the gas grill -- which was promptly replaced when the property manager resumed work during the weekdays (so we lost a couple days with the grill). So if you want to grill you might check the tank level when you check-in

Check-in was easy with a lockbox, as was checkout

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying at our house! We apologize again for the propane tank being empty as that was missed when the property was checked prior to your arrival. We now have 2 tanks there to have 1 as a backup in case 1 is empty. The Property manager is available 24/7 in case of any emergencies that may arise. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you stay with again on your next visit :)

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home well maintained. Took us less than 3 minutes to walk to Magic Sands Beach that we frequented many times. It was less than a mile drive to Kahaluu Beach which was perfect for snorkeling. We were lucky enough to be here when there were mangos from the tree in the backyard. They were delicious!! Neighborhood was quiet and the location was very convenient. What a wonderful place to come back to after spending a day exploring the island. We will definitely stay here again when we visit again!
