Welcome to White Sands Beach Estates!
The perfect location for those in search of a tranquil environment. Close enough to be lulled to sleep when the surf is up yet tucked away from the bustle of Alli'i Drive.
This fully gated and private home is located on a quiet street just a 5 minute walk to Magic Sands Beach on renowned Ali'i drive.
Magic Sands Beach is also known as White Sands Beach and by the traditional Hawaiian name of La'Aloa which means “Very Sacred”. The Kanaka Maoli (ancient Hawaiians) were very much in touch with the natural energy of the earth and were well aware of the special nature of this area. Perhaps the dolphins and whales who still spend time playing in the waters just off the shore of Magic Sands Beach shared secrets with them. Regardless, it is the area where the Ali'i (Hawaiian Royalty) chose to make their homes, hence the name Ali'i Drive.
We are particularly lucky to have the remains of what is believed to be an ancient road running through the backyard. It was likely a well used path to travel from the ocean to the fertile farmlands up mauka (up the mountain). If you are lucky you might even see a Night Marcher! (ghost of an ancient Hawaiian warrior)
You will enjoy your own private second floor room with a comfy double bed - perfect for one and perfectly cozy for two! You will also have a private full bathroom just a few steps down the hallway. Your bedroom has a door leading to your sunrise and mountain view lanai - also exclusively for your use!
Shared spaces include a full kitchen, living room and dining room. There are also several outdoor seating areas for dining, reading or just enjoying the birds!
Privacy is important. You decide how much you would like to chat.
The home is located off Ali'i Drive on La'Aloa Avenue in a peaceful residential neighborhood known as White Sands Estates. It is a wonderful resting spot for those looking for a quiet retreat after a fun day of play.
This is the perfect location on the Big Island - warm, dry and nearly always sunny!
It is conveniently located near four popular beaches:
- White Sands / Magic Sands Beach
- 4 mile
- Lyman's Bay to the North
- Kahalu'u beach to the South
Magic Sands Beach features beautiful white sand (in the summer), crystalline, turquoise water, and super fun boogie boarding. 4 Mile is a well-known snorkel and scuba diving spot. World class surfing is 1 mile away at Lyman's Bay to the North and Kahalu'u beach to the South. Kahalu'u also offers easy access to honu (green sea turtles), spectacular snorkeling and beginning surf lessons.
Nearby Keauhou shopping center (2 miles away), has dining, shops, a grocery store, movie theater, live entertainment and a wonderful Saturday Farmers Market with local coffees, organic produce etc.
Kailua Village, the main tourist area, and the town of Kailua-Kona are 4 miles to the north.
The Kona airport is approximately 20 minutes from the house. A rental car is highly recommended for ease of transportation and sightseeing. At the same time, we are only a few blocks from the public bus line and the sightseeing trolley picks up along Ali'i Drive.
After experimenting with living in different areas and at different elevations on the Kona side of the island this is the place to be - warm, dry and nearly always sunny!
The Kona airport (KOA) is approximately 20 minutes from the house. A rental car is highly recommended for ease of transportation and sightseeing.

About: The dream of swimming with wild dolphins brought me to Kona for a vacation in 2012. The experience was literally life-changing! Within 4 months I let go of my predictable midwestern lifestyle to embrace the adventure of living in Paradise. It was one of the best decisions ever! It feels as if I live in heaven on earth. Looking forward to sharing the magic of the Big Island with you - Aloha and A Hui Hou!
Why Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
The great thing about this location is its proximity to Kona's most two popular beaches - Magic Sands and Kahalu'u. At the same time, it is tucked up into the neighborhood just enough to be free from the noise and bustle of Ali'i drive. Its a pleasure to offer a peaceful resting place after a busy day of exploring all the Big Island has to offer!
