  • Amazing Location!

    "We loved the location of this condo. Right on the ocean. We came in January and saw so much wildlife right from the lanai! A massive school of dolphins, whales breaching on the horizon (wish I would have remembered to bring binoculars!) and sea turtles on the beach and tide pools beneath us. We were fortunate enough to watch a surfing competition right below us from the vantage point of the lanai. Even though the unit has a pool and hot tub, we never even used them. We preferred to go in the surf. The tide pool right beside the condo was CHOCKFUL of sea urchins so it is highly recommended to wear water shoes for protection. We found the two air conditioning units were not adequate to cool the place at night, so we opted for opening the windows and allowing the ocean breeze to work its magic. There were plenty of local restaurants nearby to choose from and many of them had very reasonable prices. We made use of the kitchen every day and found it to contain an adequate amount of utensils, appliances, and cookware. For the bedrooms on the street-side of the condo, some of the street noise early in the morning disturbed out rest (garbage trucks and noisy neighbors across the street) but not every night. One recommendation is to have more detailed instructions on how to work the air conditioners, the remotes for the ceiling fans, and turning on the wifi. Overall, It was a great place to stay and I would recommend this particular unit to anyone wanting to enjoy Kona!"

  • Beautiful house/setting, easily accommodated group of 8

    "The pictures of this place do not do it justice. When you drive down the long, very steep and windy road to get here you wonder what you are getting yourself into and then you open the door to this beautifully decorated house (reminded me of what I would imagine an expat house in India looks like) with views of the ocean from the dining room, kitchen, and one of the bedrooms, lanais everywhere, a hot tub, a hammock...it is amazing. We were a family of 8 - 2 little kids (5,9), 3 grandparents, and 3 adults. The house easily accommodated us sleeping wise and never felt crowded. It was clean and well stocked. My kids loved being a hop away from the pebble beach and played in the waves almost every day. We walked to the black sand beach once but my kids liked the pebble beach the best. The crater rim hike leaving from the pebble beach is nice (fyi, 7:45 is too late to start - hot and no shade!). The house is nicely situated for sightseeing in S. Kona - we went to the kula kai caverns, volcano national park, and the place of refuge. If you aren't a vegetarian, be sure to get some local grass fed beef and shaved ice from the Kealia ranch store. Check out the smoothies and baked goods (and great guacamole) at the S. Kona fruit stand. The only word of caution/thing I wish we did more of was plan our food a little better. This house is a little off the beaten path - an hour from Costco (and the airport), 30 min in either direction for groceries, and 15-20 min from restaurants. So if you can get most of your groceries for your stay on you way in definitely do that and then supplement here and there (there is a nice farmers market on Sun in Capt. Cook). We planned day by day and that wasn't really ideal for us. You could easily come to this house for a week and never go anywhere else - you have an amazing house, easy access to 2 beaches, hiking - or you can use it as a nice base and travel around the island. We didn't have a chance to meet Deanna in person but she was extremely responsive over email."

  • Great Condo, Fantastic Location, Outstanding Owners

    "We stayed at Joanne & Randy's White Sands Village condo in October 2016. The property was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. The condo is located on the top floor of the building with great views of the ocean and the pool. The unit has been beautifully upgraded and was in immaculate shape upon our arrival. A very nice note and a bottle of wine welcomed us as we entered this fantastic home. The unit is large, light and airy with two large bedrooms. The master bedroom opens to the pool and deck with great ocean views. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be easily combined into a king bed (which we did). The condo was stocked with beach chairs, diving gear, beach towels, etc. All the basics were provided in the kitchen and the laundry area. White Sands Village is located directly across the street from White Sands Beach (Disappearing Sands Beach). The beach is great for both swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed playing in the surf as well as snorkeling with the turtles and fishes right across the street from the unit. The complex is very quiet and everyone that we met was friendly and outgoing. We moved north to Waikoloa after our stay at WSV -- White Sands Village is more conveniently located to explore all that the Big Island has to offer. Two Step and Captain Cook (great for snorkeling/diving are only about 35 minutes south of the unit). Kailua-Kona is only a short drive north on All'i Drive. Joanne was extremely easy to deal with prior to and after our reservations. She was professional and informative regarding all of our questions. On our next visit to Kona, we'll definitely stay at unit 306 at WSV."

  • Best location for us.

    "We have been to the Big Island for the past three years in a row at Christmas. So far, this is our favorite VBRO rental. The others were very, very nice as well. However, for our purposes the placement of this lovely, clean, and private home was ideal. Close enough to get to golf and also to the beaches, snorkeling, and just to have a MaiTai at one of the beautiful resorts. In fact, we were disappointed to see that it has been rented out already for the holidays next year, as I already looked at booking it. We loved this grocery store in the community. Being able to come home from our daily activities and use the grill and pool was a real treat. Highly recommended!"
