About the property

Direct Oceanfront on top floor!

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP as of July 1, 2017!!! COOL A/C!!!

We recently purchased this studio unit at Kona Magic Sands! We also own and manage another very popular unit in the same building, listing #612353 as well! Check out our great reviews!!

We have now finished updating the space, and we are sure that you will enjoy the new furnishings that make this unit light, airy and comfortable. Cool A/C, direct oceanfront studio unit on the top floor of this small complex, with popular Magic Sands Beach on one side, and a peaceful park on the other.

Private Queen sized bed right next to the sliding doors allows you to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean! The sofa in the living area is a brand new Queen sleeper with memory foam mattress. The kitchen has been re-stocked with all the necessities, and then some!

Lots of cabinetry for all your storage needs, and an updated bath and kitchen make this unit a great place to enjoy your Big Island adventure!

The unit comes with complimentary WIFI and cable TV, along with a private parking space. There is also a coin-op laundry room downstairs for your use, as well as a swimming pool and two bbq's.

This building is only three floors, and no elevators, but it's worth the steps to get the private and best views from the building. Our unit is located in the center of the building, right next to the middle stairwell for easy access.

Unit is designed and set up for up to three people.

About Jan and Glenn Vacca

My husband Glenn and I purchased our first unit in this building in May 2014. I have had such a great time managing it and sharing it with our cherished guests, so when the opportunity arose to get a second unit here, we couldn't resist!!!

We have been traveling to Hawaii for the past thirty years, and consider it our second home. Please come and enjoy the Aloha Spirit with us!

Our home base is Southern California, and we travel to the Islands 2-3 times a year for down time, and to ensure the condos are well stocked and always up to date.

Jan and Glenn Vacca purchased this condo in 2017

Why Jan and Glenn Vacca chose Kailua-Kona

We love Kona Magic Sands because of its unique oceanfront location and close proximity to all the shops and restaurants in Kona just a few miles away.


What makes this condo unique

Having a studio unit that is direct oceanfront, and actual A/C makes this spot ideal for everyone!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place! The view, the great beach next door, the cool decor and all the extras that were included for our stay. It was so convenient to have beach towels, chairs, and guide books on hand.The linens, towels and kitchen appliances were all top of the line. We definitely plan to return - thank you for creating such an inviting space.

Amazing and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This condo is efficiently designed in every respect. It is very neat and has every amenity including cooking and beach equipment. You can open the doors at night and sleep 20 yards from the crashing waves. Look out the back door during the day and you can see yellow Tang fish dancing in the waves. It is right next to picturesque Magic Sands beach (so called because the sand disappears in winter, to return in the spring), which has snorkeling and waves (be careful of the shore break - can be dangerous if you aren't experienced in such waves). While we were there a lunch truck was in the parking lot and had excellent seafood. Next time we will bring a bicycle helmet to take advantage of the bikes for public rent right across the street. We found the location great for travel to other parts of the island. One hour north is Hapuna beach, our favorite and very family friendly. We will definitely rent this place again.

Beautiful, clean, organized and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

This property was so wonderful!

The ocean view from the room could not have been better. The design and furnishings in the condo were modern and lovely.

The bed was very comfortable and was near the balcony where we could hear the sounds of the ocean as we fell asleep.

The condo was stocked with anything and everything you could think of. Comfortable beach towels and chairs. We used the snorkel gear, coolers and bags that were provide on our daily outlinings.

We had a BBQ out near the pool with our family who had stayed down the street from the Magic Sands. The condo had everything we needed to host the six guest we had.

The unit had air conditioning and that came in handy for the short time we were at the condo.

Magic Sands beach is just a couple hundred yards away and was a perfect way to start our mornings.

I loved this condo and would highly recommend this unit to anyone!

Thank you,

Linda Gibson

Spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited the big island of Hawaii for the first time. Having used VRBO numerous times, we perused our options and chose Kona #307. The condo is super clean, spacious, extremely well-appointed and stocked, comfortable and the location cannot be beat. It was easy to locate and the free parking was convenient. The owners have done an OVER-THE-TOP job of decorating and furnishing their condo to make it very comfortable for their guests. They seem to have thought of everything you could possibly want or need. We appreciated the fully stocked kitchen complete with all of the usual dishes, pots and pans, glassware, etc., but were also pleasantly surprised by the availability of spices, tin foil, zip lock bags, coffee creamer, non-stick cooking spray, and more. The bathroom included a generous supply of quality linens as well as extras such as laundry detergent and dryer sheets. The bed, linens and pillows were very comfortable. We also appreciated the fabulous Tommy Bahama beach chairs. The Internet connection was very reliable. The beach (right next door!) is beautiful. But, the views from the full wall of sliding glass doors is outstanding! You can open the doors to let in the sounds and sights while keeping the bugs out with the screen doors. Lastly, the owner, Jan, was incredibly helpful to us when we had some questions. She was very prompt to reply and provided valuable assistance. We most definitely will be back in the future. Mahalo for sharing your lovely condo with us, Jan and Glenn!
