My girlfriend Jeana and I had a wonderful time at Magic Sands unit #310. The pictures on Airbnb were very accurate. Actually being there though was incredible. The sound of the ocean and waves crashing were constant, all day and all night. We found it to be very calming and romantic. We were fortunate enough to not be affected by 2 tropical storms/hurricane during our stay. So the weather was very hot and we had enough clear nights that we saw 5 amazing sunsets right from the condo. During our 10 day stay at Magic Sands, we saw dolphins, turtles and colorful fish right from the big window in the condo. Jerry and Alice provided boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels and even beach umbrellas which we did pack into our rental car and used all of it for a beach trip to Kua Bay just north of the KOA airport. There were so many things to like about unit #310. The location is great, about a 13-15min drive to downtown Kona. White Sands beach is literally right next to the building. It was nice to wake up at 5:30am and swim in the ocean with the locals, very refreshing and exhilarating. White Sands beach gets very crowded from 10:00am-Sunset. The free wifi in the unit was awesome, the murphy bed was quite comfortable, all the kitchen stuff provided. Although it is an older building it is truly an amazing space. Jeana and I would highly recommend to anyone considering staying on the Big Island to stay at Jerry and Alices's Ocean front condo. It was the most romantic vacation I have ever been on, and the accommodations had a lot to do with that. We will most definitely be back to the Big Island and we know where to stay. Mahalo Jerry and Alice.
Charming space in great location with fabulous view. Comfortable, clean and neat with thoughtful touches and friendly hosts. Really enjoyed our stay!
Alice and Jerry have a fabulous spot right on the water at Magic Sands Kona. The condo was a lovely, relaxing place for a holiday. We loved all the homely touches, like beach towels, beach gear and kitchen supplies. Alice rang on our first night to make sure all was well. The complex was great with a nice pool right on the edge of the sea, with deck chairs to laze around on. The place was clean, tidy and had that great beach atmosphere.
We stayed here in July 2015 and had a wonderful time! The view from the condo is beautiful. We saw spinner dolphins one morning and amazing sunsets.
The condo has been very thoughtfully furnished with just about everything you could need. Lots and lots of high quality towels, plus beach towels, two beach chairs, and a good beach umbrella. There's also a small cooler for beach days and boogie boards. Kitchen is well equipped and we cooked most breakfasts here. (The only thing missing for British visitors is an electric kettle!)
The condo is very clean and we arrived to a beautiful, huge bouquet of orchids and lovely welcoming note. The restaurants Alice and Jerry recommended were almost all excellent (we loved Daylight Mind especially).
The beach is a short walk away ( 3 mins) but we mostly ended up visiting other beaches esp after the sand disappeared! Pool area is also great and very quiet.
Overall, a really great place to stay. There were three of us and it was a little cramped with three adults but would be perfect for a couple or maybe a couple with a small kid.
Very smooth arrival and departure procedures; easy parking; lovely hosts!
Mahalo Kate for your nice comments. We love guests who love our condo. I also love watching the spinner dolphins from our condo as well as the other fish. We can often see whales from the condo from December to April. We hope you will return again someday.

Great condo with amazing view on the shoreline. Nice location next to magic Sands beach and close to down town Kona.
Thanks a lot to Alice and Jerry for a great communication and a smooth check in.
Everything about the condo is perfect: the location, the beach stuff, the fresh flowers, the stunning view (better than fotos can show!)
Alice call us, to check that everything was ok - that is a perfect host!
We highly recommend this place.
Hi Jerry/& Alice Thanks for sharing your condo with us What a View!! And to hear the ocean was music . Best vacation we ever had. Nelson
About the Host, Jerry And Alice
Jerry and Alice have been married for more than 50 years. We purchased our condo at Kona Magic Sands in 1999. It was one of the best things we have ever done. We love the incredible view of the aqua ocean from the condo, the white sand beach next door and the fantastic snorkeling right behind the condo. We have spent so many wonderful vacations there and met so many wonderful owners and guests during the past 15 years. We love Hawaii so much we purchased a house in Kona 4 years ago and live full time in Kailua Kona. We love the sunny days, warm weather and beautiful flowers. Jerry is retired and Alice continues to work per diem as an RN for Hospice. We hope you will decide you would like to visit our condo and love it as much as we do.
