Recent Kailua-Kona reviews

  • The property is clean, well maintained and has a breathtaking view.

    "The building is an older one, but is well maintained. The condo has been renovated and has a nice kitchen that is stocked with everything that you would need. I was impressed with the other supplies such as beach towels, boogie boards and snorkeling gear. The condo is very light and it is all about the view of the ocean! You will enjoy the sound of the waves. It has a great location, right next to a beautiful beach. The boogie boarding at Magic Sands is not for the faint of heart, but it is doable for a quick learner. I liked the location of the condo on Alii Drive, just out of the main town of Kailua-Kona and close to the State Park with its amazing snorkeling. We would definitely go back for another stay at the Kona Magic Sands, #314!"

  • Just as described! Wheelchair Friendly.

    "We searched many sites for a condo in the main walking area of town, with a pool, elevators, and workable with a wheelchair... and chose this unit. You will find that there are very few locations that can fill all three of these. We were familiar with the location of the building from an earlier vacation to Kona, but had not been past the storefronts on the first floor. 503 is just as pictured and described, and has all the little extras you may need for time at the beach, including coolers and folding chairs. It also has a first rate view out the front when you are home. Turtles, dolphins, dug-out's, and iron man swimmers could be seen all day long from the living room sofa. The covered parking is a great extra. My wife is in a wheelchair; and this unit has a queen bed, which allows for more clearance for walkers and wheel chairs in the bedroom - and Lisa has a tub/shower chair available for use. We brought our own suction grip grab bars just to be sure. With an assistant, the entire property worked well...we could get the wheelchair around, the halls, the elevator, pool, sidewalks, and out into the town with no issues. Without an assistant, my wife did well in the unit, halls, elevator, and pool; but had issues working with the main lobby doors the elevator. The height of the lock, in combination with the strength of the door closers ended up repeatedly trapping her until someone else came down the elevator or entered the lobby. This is not likely to be an issue for most people, but when I was scuba diving, this ended up limiting her ability to get to the pool as frequently as she would have liked. Overall - wheelchair or not - this is a great property."

  • Perfect for our needs

    "We definitely had the best vacation of our lives and this condo was perfect for what we needed. The location is optimal in my opinion for a week vacation for people who want to enjoy the whole island or stay on the beach. The price beat the heck out of a hotel, the kitchen was nice, and we were very comfortable."

  • Loved our stay here!

    "This was our first visit to the Big Island, and we spent a week here celebrating my birthday. We're not exactly the resort variety, and we like to immerse ourselves in the local culture. With that in mind, we found this place to be perfect in that aspect. Our favorite things about the unit: - As was mentioned in the other reviews, the large lanai. We spent most of our mornings and evenings here enjoying the view and the sounds of the surf. The lanai overlooks the famous Banyan Beach surf spot, and we enjoyed watching the surfers. The view from the living room and bedroom were excellent as well. - "Da Poke Shack" is right downstairs! This place is consistently ranked as some of the best poke on the Big Island, and it was the first place we ate upon arriving. - The unit is fully stocked (especially the kitchen). We're "foodies" so we didn't spend much time preparing food here. However, there were a few occasions where we made breakfast, as well as some fresh Kona coffee (there is a grinder and coffee maker), and we found everything we needed. We could have just as easily prepared food here all week with how well stocked it was. We also found the washer/dryer very useful as well as the laundry basket. - The free Wifi. - The air conditioner in the bedroom. We stayed here at the end of July, so there were a few nights we ran it when it was especially hot/humid. As somewhat of a side note, I believe somebody in another review mentioned it was on a 2 hour timer. It is actually a 12 hour one. - The Big Island Revealed book under the coffee table (among the many other useful guide books). This especially helped us with our exploration of the island. - The ample parking. A couple of other notes: - As a friendly note to future renters, the ceiling fans in the bedrooms are on speed switches with a scale of 0-4 (with 0 being off). In the excitement of everything, we set it at 4 the first night thinking this was the fastest setting. They only ran at medium speed though. It didn't occur to us until the next morning that 1 is actually the fastest setting. - Liane (the owner) was very responsive, helpful and friendly. We will undoubtedly consider her units first when we return to the Big Island. Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one!"
