  • Great stay at White Sands

    "Just got back from a wonderful vacation in Kona. We had 13 people, three generations, 18mo to 65 and the house worked well for all of us. It was a hot week and we all loved afternoons in the beautiful pool. Loved that there were many beach towels and beach toys for our use. The 18mo and 2 year old enjoyed the large areas in the house to run and play. The house now comes with a pack-n-play. The location is perfect, close to beaches, shopping and many restaurants. It made a great central location as we explored the big island. Thank you John and Robin"

  • Fantastic family experience in Kona

    "My family of five had an amazing time in Kona. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished. We cooked in most days - usually on the grill - and at outside or on the lanai. It was quite hot while we were there in August. The trade winds were not blowing until our last day. Still, we were quite comfortable with the ceiling fans and box fans. We toured the island, but almost every day, made it back to Magic Stands beach. The boogie boarding was consistently great. (The undertow is strong, so it's not ideal for small children.) I loved that everything we needed for the beach was provided - beach chairs, snorkel gear, cooler, towels. Kathy and Steve were a joy to coordinate with. They answered my many questions in advance and even a couple while we were there."

  • Great house for families/groups in great location

    "Great property, highly recommended for families. HOUSE: Call it 4 and a half rather than 5 bedrooms, one bedroom is a small room within the master suite. But for a family with a small child that can be a really good thing, having a little one close to parents for those nighttime wakeups but still with the all-important door in between. Kitchen is well stocked, and they keep around the various condiments (salt, pepper, cooking oil, no-stick spray) that people buy so you don't end up buying a huge container of something you hardly use. Pool is perfect, not heated but that's really unnecessary in the climate as the water warms up in the sun and was pretty much always ideal temperature for a cool dip. Also there is a bench/shelf running the length of the pool that is ideal for smaller children to walk and play in the water without being totally submerged, then the rest of the pool is deep enough for jumping in. There's a hot tub that we never used because it was just too warm out to want to be in the hot tub. Lots of snorkel supplies, and kids stuff including flotation devices for pool/beach and sand play items for the beach. Also a couple of older strollers that work perfectly well. No air conditioning in the house, but for the most part with the windows open and the fans on the bedrooms are fine at night. The downstairs bedroom gets afternoon sun and is probably the only room in the house that really suffers from a lack of air conditioning. Back yard a little buggy at night, but loads of bug spray provided and with the bugs you get tons of geckos and chameleons that the kids loved. LOCATION: Good location near Magic Sands beach. 15 min drive from central Kailua-Kona town. There was actually some extremely high surf when we were there, resulting in closures of some local beaches, and we did get to see the true "Magic Sands" phenomenon with all the sand washed off the beach a couple of days. But in even moderately high surf there is a protected area of beach at Magic Sands that is good for little ones. When the extreme surf was up we went to Keiki Ponds beach tucked away near downtown, highly recommend. KTA supermarket was a short drive away, had everything we needed, did not even go to Costco this trip which is a rarity for us. Favorite restaurants we recommend a short drive away: Annie's Island Fresh Burgers, Ray's on the Bay at the Sheraton, Sam Choy's (mainly for the view, especially sunset), Da Poke House for lunch (assuming you like poke)."
