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

We stayed at the KSM 303 and this was the ideal location to stay on the big island. You have the best beach on Kona next to you so you don't have to worry about finding parking. Even the snorkel tours bring their people here. The room is fully loaded with a kitchen and full refrigerator. But more importantly it... More

Paradise on a budget! I love the Big Island and especially Kona; fell in love with it 40 years ago on my honeymoon. The Big Island has, surprisingly, not changed too much over all those years. Although, like everywhere else, there has been some development. None-the-less, it is still a little piece of heaven and I try to get back... More

Physically the KMS Kona Magic Sands Property 303 VRBO Property # 373935 met our expectations and I liked the firm bed. We got off to a rough start because I never received the check in/ lock box details and we had to problem solve with remote management to get into the condo. Don't expect an Aloha welcome from Stateside management.... More

have dreamed of a tropical vacation for many years and finally for our 25th wedding anniversary we decided on Hawaii. After researching all the "fancy resorts" and having sticker shock for an ocean view I came upon Kona Magic Sands unit 314. The owners were very helpeful and extremely quick in response to my email questions prior to making our... More
