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!

A Landlubber’s Perspective

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular place! This unit is on the top floor (level 3), centre of the building, literally over the ocean. It is one of only three units (aside from corner units), that has a walk out balcony, something we always appreciate. The balcony has a high table with 4 stools plus one lounging chair. We spent a lot of time here, watching for whales (saw one and a few turtles too!), being wowed by the sound of the waves crashing against tne rocks below and enjoying the amazing sunsets.

The unit itself is true to the pictures posted. We found it to be very clean, well maintained and nicely furnished. The Queen sized bed is very comfy and set next to the sliding doors so you can lay in bed and see and hear, the ocean.

The kitchen is well stocked and has many small appliances including a great blender for mixing up some delicious cocktails!

The TV area has a large couch and big screen TV with all kinds of channels. There is a large collection of DVDs as well as a number of books to borrow.

The unit also has equipment for various sport activities—snorkelling gear, boogie boards, fishing rods and tackle box—as well as 2 beach chairs, umbrella, towels and cooler. And of course, there is a great beach next door, Magic Sands Beach!

Thank you Jan and Glen for sharing your wonderful vacation home with us. We had a wonderfully magical time here!

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the Big Island to celebrate 50 years together. We could not have found a better condo for a relaxing, romantic, and simply wonderful getaway. From our morning coffee and breakfast on the lanai to the wonderful sunsets, every day was a perfect one. The condo is so cute, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed and we appreciate the thought that Jan and Glenn have put into the property for their visitors.

We feel very fortunate to have gotten to share their lovely condo. The location is incredible and the whales, dolphin, colorful fish, and unbelievable views left us wanting for nothing! Being lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf made for great sleeping also. Thanks for allowing us to experience this wonderful place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful review, and for noticing the little touches that we try to provide for all of our guests! We love sharing our condo with those who can truly appreciate the unique location, and oceanfront is the best! Please try to come back to us again sometime! We would love the chance to host you again!

KMS is a magical place. Lay in bed and listen to the wave wake you up in the morning. Sit out on the lanai an watch the whales and dolphins and the magnificent sunsets each night.Beach right next to the building where you can boogie board and the snorkeling out front is fantastic! Condo is clean with a fully equiped kitchen. Boogie boards, beach towels, beach chairs and even a fishing equipment. The owners are attentive and bend over backwards to make the stay comfortable and relaxing. Catch the trolley out front for a fun ride to downtown or to the local grocery store. Have already made our reservation for next year.

A nice and clean Condo on the Big Island of Hawaii...

  • 5 of 5

The owners were excellent in communication, the condo was clean and filled with all you need for a wonderful stay on the Big Island. The only thing negative I would mention is that the constant road noise, the constant noise of the waves hitting on the rocky shore and the loud locals daily at the parks to the north and south of the condo make it very hard to get any sleep or enjoy some quiet time on the lanai... road on one side, ocean on the other. The only reason we looked forward to getting home was to get a good night sleep. Otherwise top notch condo. Thanks Jan and Glenn

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! The ocean can be loud at times, and being oceanfront, it's a given, and you were there over a Holiday weekend, which may add to the park usage, but hopefully you were still able to enjoy the time! Please come back again sometime!!!

Very nice setup!

  • 5 of 5

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
