Overview

About the property

1208 square foot, 2 bedrooms 2 full bath condo with an ocean view.

White Sands Village Condominiums are across from one of the finest beaches on the Kona coast: White Sands Beach. The locals call it 'Magic Sands.' Swimming, boogie boarding, and snorkeling in the clear blue water are a must. Just three and a half miles north on Alii Drive is the charming and picturesque village of Kailua-Kona. One mile south is the famous snorkeling beach, Kahaluu. Kahaluu offers easy access to the undersea population of green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish of every description. After a glorious day in the sun, it is a short stroll down to the White Sands Beach to watch a spectacular Kona sunset. If you get lucky, you may see the famous green flash.

Our 1208 square foot home is located on the second floor of the Kuakini building of White Sands Village. Of the three building in this complex, this building is set off the main road and is nestled in a garden setting. The view from the lanai is of the manicured gardens and the blue waters of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. This tastefully decorated and updated unit is fully equipped to feel like a home away from home. The condominium has been impeccably maintained and professionally cleaned in preparation for your arrival. This home gives you a master bedroom with a king bed and master bath, a guest room with a queen bed and guest bath. The spacious living room is the perfect place to unwind after a full day in the sun and plan the next day's activities. Open the sliding doors and enjoy the trade winds of the Pacific or turn on the air-conditioner for a cooler evening. The storage chest on the lanai is stocked with a variety of beach equipment for your use. This concrete constructed building is very quiet, safe and secure. This unit comes with a washer and dryer, two covered parking spaces, large private lanai, and access to all the amenities of White Sands Estates. These amenities include a heated pool, hot tub, sauna, billiards, tennis courts, BBQ area, and manicured gardens. The building does have elevator service but due to a small set of stairs up to the landing, it is not handicap accessible. The historic and beautiful town of Kailua-Kona, just 3.5 miles north on Alii Drive, offers fine dining, shopping, nightlife, excursions, local art, and a local farmer's market. The market offers an abundance locally grown fresh tropical fruits and the world famous Kona Coffee. Just 2 miles to the south you will find Keauhou shopping center. Keauhou offers a modern grocery store, cinemas, ice cream shops and various restaurants.

Top Notch Condo in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this condo and the Big Island.,,so hard for me to sum this trip up in a few words. First, this condo is perfect!! We have nothing negative to say! Ive never stayed somewhere that is as well stocked or that felt so home like! We never needed to contact the owners while there, but im sure if we had needed to they would have responded quickly. Every detail of the condo was perfect in our opinion. The beds are super comfortable with premium sheets and the condo was very very clean. There is a view of the ocean from lanai and beautiful landscaping also. I had no problem taking a nap on the chaise on lanai. You will find every utensil you need in the kitchen if your cooking, and spices to..There are several books about hawaii on a shelf in the cozy spacious living room that helped us decide on places to see while there. A cooler for day outings, plastic cups with lids for on the go, all the beach stuff, chairs, umbrella, snorkeling, boogie boards... The condo is decorated so nicely with island style feel. The pictures do not do it justice. Water pressure in showers is great as well. The pool is refreshing and 8 ft deep, which ive never seen anywhere ive stayed. The bbq facilities at pool are great, even a sink and small fridge. Its a great location across from the beach and just down the road from the main part of Kona for shopping, eating, etc. Would definately stay again when we return to Kona and can only hope we get this lucky for other places we visit. Thank you so much Franky and Jackie for such a great experience!

Awesome Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very well maintained. It is very spacious and plenty of room for a family of 4. The owners are wonderful to work with and great about getting right back to you with any questions you may have and I had plenty. I seen several people who couldn't find their condo unit or couldn't get access to the unit they were renting but we were given very clear and simple directions to Condo building and how to gain access to the unit itself upon arrival. These condos are right across the street from the only white sands beach within Kona other then at the Pier. It is a nice beach but pretty small and very popular but there was always room to lay or sit your lawn chairs. Unfortunately with our visit being during the volcano activity we only got a couple hours of sun first thing in the morning and then the Vog rolled in around 11-12 most days but temperatures were still in the mid 80's. I would definitely rent this condo again if I ever decided to make a return trip to Kona.

Loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

Great property overall. Easy to find and access. Good location as a base location for adventurous souls. Great view and excellent appointments. All inquiries to Frankie and Jackie were promptly acknowledged. Since it is on the southern side of Kailua-Kona proper, it made travel to areas of interest to us very easy:

Keauhou Shopping Center

Snorkeling in the bay nearby

Capt. Cook Monument

The Painted Church (Catholic)

First class all the way!

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at this location. It was a very clean, comfortable unit - with pretty much everything that you could need while in Kona.

Thank you - we enjoyed our stay, and hope to return again when we can stay a bit longer :)

Wonderful condo in Hawaii. What could be better?

  • 5 of 5

Huge condo, easily large enough for four people comfortably. Kitchen was well-stocked, plenty of beach items, plus the condo was clean and comfortable. Beach was nearby as well as several good restaurants. I would definitely like to go back.

Car: recommended

White Sands Village Condominium is across from one of the finest beaches on the Kona coast: White Sands Beach. The locals call it 'Magic Sands.' Swimming, boogie boarding, and snorkeling in the clear blue water are a just seconds from your front door. Just three and a half miles north on Alii Drive is the charming and picturesque village of Kailua-Kona. One mile south is the famous snorkeling beach, Kahaluu, which offers easy access to the undersea population of green sea turtles and colorful tropical fish of every description. After a glorious day in the sun, it is a short stroll down to the White Sands Beach to watch a spectacular Kona sunset. If you get lucky, you may see the famous green flash. After sunset, enjoy the Kona nightlife or retire to the peaceful lanai with a book. Whatever your choices, they are not far from this property.

This beautiful unit is fully equipped to feel like a home away from home. You may pack light as there is a washer and dryer right in your condo. Tastefully arranged, decorated, and supplied to make you feel comfortable, this unit will allow you to experience the Big Island of Hawaii to your heart's content.

Our 1208 square foot home gives you a master bedroom with King bed & bath, a guest room with a Queen bed & bath. It has a fully supplied kitchen, dining room, and living room plus a large private lanai. Located in the more exclusive Kuakini Building, this condo is peaceful and quiet, yet a short walk to the White Sands Beach. The concrete building is very quiet. It has an elevator and covered parking, which other condos in Kona often lack.

The condo is located 13 miles to Kailua-Kona Airport (KOA), two miles to Kona Country Club Golf Course, and two miles to Keahou Shopping Center. The volcano is about a 95-mile drive. Fine and casual dining are close by if you don’t wish to cook at home.

If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway, this quality unit is just the place!

A special Note: The unit is NOT Handicap accessible.
