About the property

Studio that can sleep 2 with oceanfront views from the lanai

PORTABLE A/C UNIT was added in 2016 when ocean breezes and fans aren't enough.

We have one of the few units in the building with an ACTUAL outdoor patio to enjoy the beautiful ocean view, which is direct ocean front, with famous Magic Sands Beach right next door!

Recent upgrades include a 55" big screen TV with Blu Ray player, Netflix and free WIFI access, stereo system, queen mattress with memory foam topper, extra bedding and linens, and an added TV above the armoire in the bedroom area. There is a large collection of DVD's and books to enjoy as well. The kitchen is fully stocked with small appliances including microwave, blender, coffeemaker, rice maker and coffee grinder along with glasses, pots, pans, silverware, and various seasonings and spices. The kitchen and bath have updated granite counters. The bathroom shower has a raised shower head for our taller guests.

We've also added plenty of extra amenities like extra large beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, picnic blankets, boogie boards and beach umbrellas for your afternoons at the beach next door. We've provided two sets of binoculars for whale and fish watching from the lanai.There are two BBQ's on site by the oceanfront pool and a coin-op laundry room downstairs. Free assigned parking spot for one car is also included.

Please note that there is no elevator in the building and we are located on the top floor (third floor), but it's worth the steps for the fantastic views!

We are conveniently located within 2-3 miles of downtown Kailua-Kona and all it's inviting shops and restaurants.

About Jan and Glenn Vacca

My husband Glenn, and I have been vacationing on the Hawaiian Islands for the last 30 years. With our children now grown and moving on, we decided to make one of our dreams come true by owning our own little piece of heaven in Kona. I love sharing our place with others who love it here as much as we do! And having return guests makes it even better!

We take great pride in having a clean, comfortable place to enjoy the Island.


Jan and Glenn Vacca purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jan and Glenn Vacca chose Kailua-Kona

We chose this property because of the unique oceanfront location and it's quiet, laid back atmosphere and Aloha spirit. You just can't find a complex any closer to the ocean than this!

What makes this condo unique

There is nothing better than true outdoor dining while watching the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the lanai. Enjoy your morning coffee, and an evening tropical drink to begin and end your day in paradise!

Very nice setup!

Pretty much everything was very good, great view, lots of nice stuff and arrangement in a cozy space. Problem mastering the tv system but resident manager gave the secrets on using the system. Lloyd and Tina

Great location, unit tasteful and well equipped. Will miss listening and seeing the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

One suggestion would be to have a copy of the “manual” at the property. I have been traveling for 3 weeks and no printer access; difficult to read all the documents on a phone. Aside from that I couldn’t think of a nicer spot to end a month long adventure. I would recommend to anyone looking for a similar experience.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! I will take your suggestion of the manual under advisement! There is a Guest Book inside the unit with a lot of the information listed already, but I will certainly see what else I can add to make the information more complete! Please come back again soon! The ocean awaits you!!! :) Jan

Just as fantastic the second time around!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo from 12/2 - 12/10 /17 for the second time and cannot say enough good things about this property. The property itself is tastefully decorated and well-equipped. The onsite amenities include a beautiful swimming pool, area with lounge chairs and tables as well as a grill that you can use during your stay. It is close to downtown Kona but allows you to avoid all of the crowds. During our stay, we saw dolphins from the lanai several mornings and one morning, my husband ran over to Magic Sands beach and was able to swim out to swim with the dolphins! We also had the pleasure of seeing two whales one evening at sunset - absolutely amazing! In addition, everyone we met at this property, owner or renter have been pleasant, considerate people. The owner of this condo is responsive, professional, helpful - an absolute pleasure to work with while making arrangements or should you have questions. Highly recommend you check this property out!

The view and amenities are exceptional. We had a great time.

  • 4 of 5

The boogie boards, umbrella, and chairs that are in the room are fantastic. It’s very quiet at night (except for the waves 😊). Neighbors are very respectful. The beach next door was a definite plus.

Only complaint was the water pressure in the shower. It really was difficult to rinse the shampoo out of your hair.

All in all loved it!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying with us, and for the good review! Glad you liked the amenities! Just wanted to let you know that it turns out there was a clogged shower head that affected the water pressure, but we have since replaced the shower head and faucet in the shower and all is good! Hopefully you can come back again sometime, and we would love to host you again! Mahalo, Jan
