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 Vacca

We've 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!

Jan Vacca purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jan Vacca chose Kona Coast

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!

Outstanding stay! Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely amazing. It was very clean, great location, nice quiet building and the condo had everything we possibly wanted or needed. We enjoyed it so much, we didn't want to leave the condo! Our favorite thing was drinking coffee on the lanai in the mornings watching sea turtles and tang in the surf. In the evenings, gorgeous sunsets!! The owner was so nice and very responsive. We are already planning our next trip and cannot wait to return!! Highly recommended!!

A Wonderful Stay at an Unequaled Location

  • 5 of 5

Simply put: the amazing view from the lanai can't be had anywhere else. The dawn lights up the waves in which you can see yellow tang swimming, and the sun sets directly in front of you between beautiful palms. At night you can sometimes see faraway lights from small craft winking in the distance. The unit itself is spacious and comfortable with lovely decor, and I'm envious of the design and orderliness of the kitchen (wish mine was like that!). The wicker chest holds all the gear you need for a great day at the beach next door or up and down the coast, and there are plenty of towels. I would (and will) recommend this property to friends and family.

Wir waren während der IM Woche in der tollen Ferienwohnung. Da Big Island so viel zu bieten hat, konnten wir gar nicht alle Annehmlichkeiten der FeWo genießen. Hat sie doch so viel zu bieten. Von einer großen Truhe voll Strandsachen angefangen mit einer kompletten Angelausrüstung über diverse Schnorchel Sachen bis hin zu 4 Bodyboards, Strandstühlen u.v.a.

Wir hatten etwas Bedenken wegen den hohen Temperaturen. Aber da wir tagsüber die Klimaanlagen laufen ließen, war die Wohnung Abends noch kühl . Wir konnten dann Abends die Klima Anlage abschalten und Nachts die Kühle halten durch Durchzug von der Terrassentür zum Badzimmerfenster.

Für uns beide hatte sie die Wohnung die richtigen Größe, vielleicht noch mit kl. Kinder. Auch für einen Film Abend ist reichlich vorgesorgt, so dass wir das Apartment gerne weiter empfehlen können. Alles andere sagen die vielen Bilder.

Wir bedanken uns bei Jan für den tollen Kontakt und die freundliche Unterstützung.

Beautiful view and wonderfully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this condo at the Kona Magic Sands! It is along Ali'i Drive, where there are many condos and hotels, but it can boast a lovely white sand beach on one side and a small park on the other. These things are not only lovely to enjoy, they make it feel like you are secluded somewhere, rather than surrounded by other housing. The condo was incredibly well-stocked, you likely don't need to bring anything! There were numerous towels, beach towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs, binoculars for birds (or the volcanoes!), books (including guide books!), movies, Netflix-capable TV (great for the evenings), and more. While we loved having the AC-unit, we also loved opening the doors to the lanai and the front door (with screen doors on both sides) to feel the cross-breeze and listen to the sounds of the ocean. We did a lot of adventuring around the island and this condo was a great home base for us. We thought it was a great place to finish out our honeymoon and would recommend it to almost anyone for their stay on the Big Island! Mahalo!

Comfort right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We picked this condo because of the view, and it was even more impressive in person than online. We wanted a balance between activities and rest on our honeymoon, so it was ideal that even when just lounging around, we could still see and hear the ocean. In the morning, in particular, the water was so clear that we could watch different color fish swim in the cresting waves as we ate breakfast. The neighboring beach was quite busy in August, so we mostly enjoyed it in the morning hours. Multiple times, we saw large sea turtles with us in the water. We really appreciated being able to use the snorkel gear and boogie boards provided in the condo.

The condo is kept really clean, despite its proximity to the beach and beach gear stored within it. The bed was so comfortable that we've purchased our own memory foam for our bed at home. And the kitchen had everything we needed for the few meals we cooked. Overall, a lot of thought has gone into outfitting this rental (even the beach towels were high quality). The owners newly added a small AC unit, which we used occasionally in the summer heat. At night, however, we found we were plenty comfortable just keeping the sliding door open a bit and using one of two fans provided.

We appreciated that the condo is a few miles south of Kona's busiest district, since that area felt a bit hectic. It was an easy drive to restaurants and to nearby beaches for excursions. Although we would have enjoyed having a restaurant or bar in easy walking distance, the residential location just meant we spent more time enjoying the view from the deck. Overall, this was a really memorable and comfortable place to stay!
