Just stayed in #111 (ground floor) for over a week. It had everything we needed. All appliances (dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker) except an oven but we didn't need that anyway. There are shared gas grills to use outside. In this condo, there was some snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach towels. Cable TV, wifi included. I don't know if there... More

As mentioned in other reviews, all units are individually owned and largely managed by one of several property management companies you can book the property through (a few google searches will show your options). #209 is simple no-frills accommodation, a bachelor suite good for 2 people. Kitchen had everything we needed, including blender, toaster, microwave, coffee maker. Also had a... More

We stayed in a ground floor unit in the Kona Magic Sands complex but thought it was a little depressing. First of all: we did not get the American taste of furniture on Hawaii at all. We have travelled through Asia a lot and the way they create little elegant boutique hotels there with jungle feel and elegance iss amazing.... More

Room looked like it was never cleaned..nasty stained sheets..no ac..overhead fans not working..the worst was the horrible smell from what we think was fumigation (?) We tried opening the Windows and sliding doors to air the... More

My husband and I rented unit 206 for 7 nights. It was perfect for 2 people. The view is unbeatable! We fell asleep every night with the sliding door open listening to the waves. Everything we needed was there from cooking supplies to beach chairs and snorkel sets. The complex is very quite and has Magic Sands beach right next... More

I stayed in this condo for 5 nights and it was an excellent base for my snorekeling and hiking adventures in the Kona and north coast areas. This studio condo has been renovated and is very nicely decorated. It has ceramic tiled floors in the kitchen, bath, and bed area, and laminate in the sitting area. The kitchen is fully... More

Very nice view of the white sands beach. The condo is of the vintage with popcorn ceilings. the lanai is wraparound and lovely breeze. the interior is generous in size but worn and feels like many visitors over time have left their marks.

The apartment is a large studio apartment with gorgeous Lanai looking out to the ocean. It was definitely a treat to sit on the Lanai sipping cocktails or champagne every evening, looking at the beautiful sunsets - it was quite dreamy. During the day, you can see the colorful fishes right beneath you and they swim in the waves. The... More

This a a great convenient condo with everything that you need. The kitchen and bathroom are stocked with supplies and the large lanai has great views of the ocean in the mornings and evenings. I found the afternoon sun too hot (it is the on the top floor with little shade) but that is a great time to go use... More

This hotel appears on the outside like all the others in Kona but once inside the condo was fantastic. We had a great view of the ocean and a small beach to the left and a park on the right. The price is affordable but the best perk of the room is it's location. The beach located next door has... More
