Overview

About the property

Updated Studio Condo as close as you can get to the ocean without getting wet!

About the Condo:

You will be greeted with stunning views and cool breezes from this ocean-front condo resting on the top floor of Kona Magic Sands Condos. The sliding doors open to a direct, unobstructed ocean view of the blue waters, palms and gorgeous sunsets. The third floor provides a bird's eye view of the reef below filled with colorful fish you can watch in the waves. Take a look at the aerial photo to see the beauty of the water and reef right out front. The white sands beach is nestled directly next to the condo with a park on the other side where hula girls enjoy practicing. Avoid driving to the beach and be at ease, using the complimentary beach towels, snorkeling gear and boogie boards while only steps from the white sand. Relax at home in the new air conditioning and enjoy the sunsets from the new queen sleeper sofa or while bbq poolside.

Private secured wifi internet.

King bed with new linens and blankets.

Wall mounted flat screen tv with cable

Computer and printer

Plenty of dishes and cookware to enjoy a relaxing meal at home.

New 40 gallon water heater - no need to wait for the water to heat up (some condos use insta-hot).

Pull out couch bed

Due to the lack of elevator at Kona Magic Sands, the unit is not wheelchair accessible.

Boogie boards, beach gear, snorkels, binoculars, and towels to make it easy for you to have fun on your vacation and relax while avoiding driving with the beach and park next door. There is also a trolley that stops out front and circles around the downtown to let you enjoy the town and happy hour without needing to drive. We would love to share the condo with you on your next trip to Hawaii!

Vacations are precious, don't settle for less go with the best and save.

Maintained and cleaned- just read our reviews, we love this condo and it shows! We have been told so many times when guests stay in our condos that they just feel like they are home and they are so comfortable - come share the feeling. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Location:

Conveniently located directly next to Magic Sands Beach as pictured (so convenient not needing to find parking). On the other side of this small complex, there is a palm tree studded park where the hula girls practice. Only a couple miles to downtown Kona (walk if you like or jog). There is also a trolley that stops right outside and loops around the downtown (about 2 miles away) and the grocery (about two miles the other direction) which is great because you can get away without having a rental car or catching the happy hours and not worrying about driving back. 

Kona is our favorite city in Hawaii with just enough tourism to allow for a great selection of things to do and places to eat and few enough tourists to not feel like... well... feel like tourists. If it is your first visit to Hawaii, Kona is the best place to stay in our opinion, which is why we first decided to buy a condo here.

About Kona Magic Sands Condos:

Kona Magic Sands is well a maintained, small, 3 story condo complex with lawn and pool that sits directly between KMS Beach and a park. It is unique amongst some of the condos in Kona since it sits directly facing the ocean and some other condos put the guest rooms at an angle to squeeze more rooms in with a “view.” Some of the recent upgrades to the condo complex include: new paint, the pool re-plastered with turtle mosaic, new second bbq, landscape maintenance as well as frequent deep cleanings. There is a fantastic and helpful on site Manager, Lori, that takes care of many aspects of the condo and is kind to help with directions or other local questions. There is plenty of seating at the pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as two complimentary BBQs. But one of our favorite parts of KMS is that there never seems to be a crowd! There is also trolley that stops right outside of the condo that will take you to the grocery plaza and also loops to downtown Kona a couple of miles away.

About Debbie & David Todd

David and Debbie Todd are the owners.

Debbie & David Todd purchased this studio in 2012

Why Debbie & David Todd chose Kailua-Kona

We bought this studio because of the area and the beautiful top floor view of the ocean and reef and sea life below. The whales also migrate past right outside in the ocean.

What makes this studio unique

Top floor, new powerful A/C, and no blocked views due to the position directly facing the ocean. Pool on site and beach and park directly next door. No parking fees and amenity fee included.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to stay, has everything you need. The view is great, you can’t get a better ocean view. It’s also really nice to be right next to magic sands beach for days when you just want to sit at the beach and relax.

Wonderful Ocean Experience

  • 4 of 5

The view and sound of the ocean is wonderful...blue ocean, waves, and tropical fish are visible from the apartment. Sunsets are spectacular. The beach next door has nice white sand and plenty of places for snorkeling. Parking is very convenient (own space) and several markets and a small shopping center is just 5 minutes away by car. The AC works well and kitchen has everything for a short stay. The third floor location is perfect. Debbie and David made sure the apartment had everything, even an iron...thanks!!!

As Advertised

  • 4 of 5

From the the room, it is an infinity view of the Pacific Ocean. Your perch on the third floor gives the added advantage being able to see down into the ocean seeing many coloured fish and sea turtles, swimmers and paddlers, dolphins and whales. You also get a first hand report on the swell/surf conditions. The unit itself has been reno'd to provide great kitchen space enabling the preperation of whatever meal you could want. Sited between Magic Sands Beach and Pahoehoe park where all kinds of activities happen. Dancing, strumming, drumming, yoga, martial artist practise and plenty of picnickers all right next door. Condo was clean, well equipped with water toys, great wifi, tv and there is a good laundry on site. With the excellent parking space just for you, you will want for not. If you l ike the lull of gentle ocean waves to put you to sleep, you're in luck, but maybe have a pair of ear plugs for when the ocean gets up. You are going to be that close to it. Mahalo Debbie and Todd.

Sunset views can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. Breathtaking views of the ocean, especially at sunset. Next door to a terrific beach for swimming or snorkeling. Plentiful kitchenware for your homemade meals. Just a great location to enjoy your Kona experience.

Location

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Kailua Kona 'KOA'
Car: not necessary

Ocean front on Alii Dr. right next to Magic Sands Beach (great snorkeling and boogie boarding) and the other side is a park were the hula girls sometimes practice. The trolly stops directly across the street to take you downtown for fun, happy hour or around the way for groceries. So many things nearby, Kona is a perfect vacation location.
