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.
Felt very welcome and Alice and Jerry were very friendly.
We had a great stay here with no problems. Alice and Jerry were very responsive and even called our first night to make sure we made it in safely. Very sweet! The location is ideal and the views are spectacular. We would definitely come back!
Wir haben mit unserem 4-jährigen Sohn 5 sehr schöne Tage im Condo von Alice und Jerry verbracht. Die Lage direkt am Meer ist wunderbar. Wir sind oft am offenen Fenster gesessen und haben den Blick auf das weite Meer genossen (wir haben auch Delfine gesehen!). Unser Sohn hat Stunden im warmen Pool verbracht und abends haben wir den vorhandenen Grill sehr geschätzt. Die vorhandene Beach-Ausstattung (Bodyboards, Sonnenschirm, Schnorchelutensilien) haben wir ebenfalls sehr geschätzt. Jerry und Alice sind sehr freundliche Vermieter. Wir würden bei unserem nächsten Besuch wieder in ihrem Condo übernachten und können diesen sehr empfehlen.
We loved to stay at Magic Sands in Kailua-Kona, the Condo was very clean and comes with a lot of stuff we could use (like beachtowels, snorkel, parasol, showergel and many more things). The view on the sea from the Condo was amazing, it gave us some more holiday-feeling.
Jerry and Alice had terrific communication before and during our stay, and also provided great local recommendations for food. The unit is literally right on the water, and we enjoyed sipping wine at the table during sunsets and listening to the waves crash against the sea wall. The Magic Sands Beach next door was relatively small and washed out during our stay due to a big South Swell, but we knew that going in and generally drove to the bigger beaches up the coast. The pool is nice and clean and refreshing. The unit is has a everything you would need for a stay and was nice and clean as well. Jerry and Alice provide beach chairs, snorkel gear, a beach umbrella, a cooler, etc.. - all of this was awesome for making trips to the beach super easy. In particular, the beach chairs and large beach umbrella made our days at Hapuna State Beach wonderful! While there is no A/C, there are plenty of fans and you can leave the large sliding glass doors open for a nice ocean breeze - it cools off during the night and you fall asleep to the crashing waves! A great location for staying in Kona at an amazing price! Definitely recommend staying here at the Magic Sands Condos. Thanks Jerry and Alice!
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.
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.
