About Karen Davidson

One-owner family for 25 years, pride of ownership is reflected throughout the condo. Our family has enjoyed this condo, surrounding complex, and the beach since 1987 including three generations of family members. We now would like to share it with our friends and VRBO guests.

Karen Davidson purchased this condo in 1987

Why Karen Davidson chose Kona Coast

Bobbie, the matriarch of the family, fell in love with this area when on vacation and purchased the condo where she lived for 25 years. She was attracted to the beauty and serenity of the area, the beach right across the street, close proximity to town and shopping, and of course - the beautiful pool just steps away.


The condo is located in a quiet garden setting with a partial ocean view just across the street from one of the best white sands beaches on the Big Island. Less than a mile away is a private reserve for some of the best snorkeling around.

Dated and could use an update

  • 3 of 5

Great location to see the beautiful sites of this island.

Site is well maintained with lovely facilities for a laid back break. The complex provides a great pool and BBQ facilities and a short walk to beach across the road.

Missing some simple things like a shop or Caffee nearby, although a ten minute drive in any direction provides many options.

Would generally rave about this place if it was modernised and comfortable beds provided etc. a few short comings but a good spot.

Comfortable condo with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

When I first found this condo on VRBO, I was a bit nervous as I never booked through them before. In the end, everything worked out totally smooth, with no issues and I enjoyed wonderful time in Hawaii. We were group of 4 people and the only downside is that we stayed for 1 week and not longer.

Karen (the owner) is very nice, helpful and responsive to all questions we had. Condo is also very nice, bright, clean and with great location, just a few steps from beach. The beach is however quite crowded during the day, but we were mostly exploring the island not spending much time on the beach, and we were there only once or twice.

You will find lot of stuff in the condo and you will feel like at home. Kitchen is fully equipped, so you can cook for yourself if you want. You will have plenty of towels, some bodyboards, big fridge/freezer with ice maker, etc. This was one of the best vacation stays I had, and I can totally recommend this condo to anyone!

Great Condo, great location, great facilities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Condo from April 7-12. It was exactly as advertised - or even better. The place was clean and well stocked. The pool and HotTub are very well kept. The BBQ area is spotless and includes not only 3 new BBQ's, but a kitchen with sink and even a frig. It is covered and there are 3 tables with chairs. The beach really is right across the street, and it's a nice beach. The covered parking is also nice - well lit at night. We made use of the beach chairs and cooler almost every day. The balcony ( or Lanai ) is huge and has lots of furniture on it. We enjoyed coffee there in the mornings. Lots of towels, the most dishes and cutlery we have ever had at a VRBO rental. Everything worked. A/C was nice. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if we ever return to Kona.

Airy and bright Magic Sands Village condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this 2 bedroom condo. The large wrap around lanai was a real treat. Because the lanai faces west and north, it was a good place to hang out during the day when the sun is out. Being across the street from Magic Sands beach was a real bonus. We spent many an hour at the beach: beware of the surf when it's high, as it was when we were there in late March. The waves were up to 8 feet on some days, which can be very dangerous for swimming or boogie boarding. Excellent stay overall!

Clean, quiet, spacious, a little dated

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very clean! No funky smells. The sofa cushions are at most mildly stained.

The fans are necessary in March but we didn't need the AC unit. The natural light, huge sliding doors, wrap around lanai, outdoor table/chairs yet large indoor dining table were fantastic. Kitchen is a good size for one and has all the supplies (equipment and oil, seasoning, condiment; bring coffee) you need, even containers & cooler to bring to the beach which is so helpful! Fridge with ice/water dispenser was very handy. The Hawaiian wall art is attractive although toddlers may handle them more than a parent would like. The beach umbrella (really appreciated as the sun is very strong here for us), boogie boards, sand toys, drying rack were all used too. The W/D, detergent, etc were so helpful. The unit is fitted with grab bars in the master bedroom and bathroom, along with handicap tall toilets. Anti fatigue mats are nice as long as they are laundered between stays! We slept comfortably in a 'strange' bed given the mattress and pillows are softer than we normally have. The single beds are narrow that I almost wished it was easier to push the beds together for our school age kids.

The kids enjoyed the pool table; we used the BBQ area once; the pool looked nice but may be lacking a shallow area for younger kids. The unit is very close to these amenities and parking is very convenient as one only needs to walk up one flight of stairs. Not sure if office lends tennis racquets but we would have played if available from the unit.

The area is very quiet and feels safe. Barely heard other people when inside even with all the doors open; can hear a youngster running around upstairs but muffled. The birds are noisy in the morning and evening, but we didn't mind. we could see the sunset while dining outside and the sun coming over the mountain from the unit. We haven't gone across the street yet to check out the beach but sure is convenient as we've driven up to an hour to get to sandier beaches. Not a large beach and looks better suited for playing in the waves.

There are a few things that show signs of wear like some of the bathroom fixtures, the master toilet that never fills unless the flush returns to its proper level and the noisy dryer. But everything worked! Another outdoor lounger would have great. given the spaciousness, cleanliness and amenities, it's one of the better valued and enjoyable vacation rentals we've stayed at!
