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 sofa sleeper in living area, 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 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!

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Kona, we were unsure where to stay. We absolutely chose a great location at Kona Magic Sands. We were able to see fish in the water from the lanai. We spent so much time in the water as the beach was right next to us. From the lanai, we were able to stargaze and even saw the Milky Way. KMS 311 is very well thought out. So comfortable with many little extras that make it like home. We can't wait to return!!

Wonderful stay at a graciously comfortable condo on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Kona Magic Sands and look forward to coming back! Thank you for equipping your lovely condo with all the comforts to make our stay so relaxing. The fresh beach towels and boogie boards got a workout at Magic Sands Beach. We swam every day and watched the sunset from the lanai. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our place, and that the beach towels and boogie boards were frequently used! Nothing like evenings on the lanai! Hope you get to come back again soon! Mahalo! Jan

Lovely condo with a spectacular view of the ocean. Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and two children, age 6 and 11, travelled from Sweden and stayed four nights in 311 and it was perfect! The beds were comfortable, the condo was clean and nicely decorated, the pool was nice, the kitchen well-equipped. We also appreciated the beach gear (beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards) that was provided. But best of all was the view! We loved to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the ocean. If we'd ever afford to come to Hawaii again we'll definitely stay here again!

Our favorite place to stay in the islands

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days in this perfect condo. We have stayed at Magic Sands 4 times. This condo is our favorite. It has been beautifully updated. We love this condo because it is one of the few that preserved its' outside eating lani. We spent every meal sitting on our lani watching fish and turtles swim in the waves and surfers and boogie boarders get great rides. Several days we did not even get in the car. You have everything you need right there! The condo has beach chairs, umbrellas, an ice chests, towels and 2 boogies board. We had a slight problem with the internet and the owner went out of her way to get us connected. They have added an air conditioner since our last stay here and it was great to have. Most Magic Sands condos don't have AC. It can get hot in paradise. We will be back soon I hope.

My wife and I spent 9 nights here for our anniversary. Totally amazing experience. We watched whales and dolphins from the lanai. Quiet and relaxing place. It is stocked with everything needed to make your stay enjoyable with items for the day at the beach right next to the condos. Listen to the waves all night but at times they are a bit loud but still relaxing. Perfect place to see the most incredible sunsets Hated to leave and return to reality
