Interaction with Guests

Right on the ocean with a beautiful white sandy beach on one side and a tree covered park on the other side.
It's best to rent a car since the island is big and there is a lot to see. We do have an open air trolley that stops in front of our condo that will take you to the Village of Kona, stores, and restaurants. The cost is only $2 each way.
No smoking unit. There is a designated smoking area outside. Quiet time is 10:00 pm to 8:00 am.
We loved the entire experience! Orchids on the table and bathroom, phone call to make sure we were all settled in, excellent instructions for exploring the area and the best location. Seriously, if you are looking for a place right on the water, 20 steps from a great beach, swimming and snorkeling with ease, and an entirely outfitted studio then this is the place for you. We were generally lazy and sat at the beach right next door for 5 of our 7 days. Snorkeled with turtles and bogey boarded with the locals. WE WILL BE BACK! Highly recommended. Only drawback is that the room is on the third floor, folks with limited mobility may struggle climbing the stairs, no elevator.
This is a beautiful place to stay. Both the condo and the location.
The condo is well equipped, well laid out, lovely and clean. The pool and lawn are great for lounging around and the ever present sound of the surf is extremely relaxing.
Kailua is only a short distance away as are various shops and supermarkets.
Convenient place from which to explore up and down the coast and the coffee region.
We absolutely loved our absolutely seafront condo and miss the sound of the waves!
Jerry and Alice were lovely hosts. Friendly & helpful and the info supplied was spot on.
We loved Jerry and Alice's place. Location superb right next door to magic sands beach and the ocean right outside the lounge room. Beautiful. The snorkel gear, chairs, towels and cool box made it so easy for our outings. The orchids and linen were lovely touches. The fridge etc was stocked with lots of useful foods and the bottled water supplied was greatly appreciated. The weber BBQ was very convenient.
Watching the sunset from our balcony was fabulous.
Alice rang to check that all was well and was happy to assist us in any way. It was easy to find with the directions supplied. Parking was great. We would highly recommend this condo. Make sure you go to snorkel beach just up the road.
Thanks Alice and Jerry, we would love to come back one day.
Cheers Sue and Michael
Finding flowers on arrival and a personal hand written note plus a welcome call made us feel very special.
The location was good far enough out of Kona not to be too busy.
We live in a very quiet neighbourhood so the road noise took a bit to get used to but we tuned into the sound of the waves.
The description of the condo was spot on, I describe it as Hawaian retro, very comfortable and everything we needed was provided.
Breakfast while watching the tropical fish was a treat.
Alice and Jerry have got it right and I will be telling family and friends to look no further if they are visiting Kona, we will be back.
The apartment has everything you need and more, but you WILL NOT get over the view. It's insane. We stared at the water, at the tropical fish in the surf, at the sunsets, and felt we were truly in paradise. Can't recommend it enough!
We enjoyed our stay at Jerry & Alice's oceanfront condo. Hearing the waves every night as we slept was amazing. The location of the condo to nearby Magic Sands Beach was ideal. We were just steps away from the ocean and enjoyed it every day along with the pool. The condo included everything we needed for a perfect Kona vacation. Thanks!
Location, location, location! This is a front row seat for all the ocean has to offer. Bed and futon were comfortable. The condo has you need for a beach vacation. The views are amazing.
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 14 years. We love Hawaii so much we purchased a house in Kona 3 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.
Great snorkle area. One mile south of the condo on Alii Drive. Best to go in the morning when sunny and during high tide. Good for beginners. Watch the lava, it is slippery.
One mile south of condo on Alii Drive at Keauhou Shopping Center. Frequently have fresh local fish available, ahi or ono. Yum
Good food and service. Local fresh fish. Lunch or dinner.
Don's Mai Ti Bar right on the ocean. Beautiful location for drinks and pupus. They also serve food which is quite good.
My favorite on the island. Asian flair using local ingrediants. Lunch $8.99, dinner slighty more.
Good foood and service. Fair prices. Great breakfasts, hamburgers, local fresh fish.
Beautiful white sand beach.
