Washer and dryer in the unit. The large lanai offers ocean and mountain views with a table for outdoor dining and lounger. Ceiling fans and central air conditioning will keep you cool. Reserved covered parking is directly below the unit.

Cross the street and you'll have your toes in the warm sand at White Sand Beach, also known as Magic Sands Beach. Bask in the sun, go boogie boarding in the waves, swim with the dolphins or just relax and enjoy the sunset at this popular beach. The beach has a staffed lifeguard stand, outdoor shower, restrooms and a beach volleyball court.

Just a mile down the road is the famous, protected snorkeling beach Kahalu'u - with tons of colorful tropical fish and green sea turtles - great for beginners and experts. Beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, and boogie boards may be available for your use at the condo. Also close by are great paddle boarding, kayaking and surfing areas.

The complex is just 4 miles south of Kona village with it's many restaurants, boutiques, gift shops, massage, Henna tattoos, and a Farmer's Market. The pier downtown is a great starting point for a paddle or an open-water swim with the dolphins along the marked IronMan World Triathlon course. A ride on the open-air Alli Trolley is a fun way to travel to town.

Our week at magic sands was fabulous

Loved being right across from the beach. Also near free trolley stop. The pool right down stairs was wonderful with hot tub attached. Lanai was spacious with beach chairs and noodles available to use. Lots of nice people and were respectful to each other. Not close to shops but we didn’t need that except groceries. Highly recommend it. Not noisy either, even though close to road.

The property was in a great location. Certainly a little dated and could use a good Deep cleaning. Overall, it was a good place to stay, close to the water.

Property was in a great location, with a clear view of the ocean and right across the street from a beach. This part of the beach was, unfortunately, under construction but I’m sure it is beautiful otherwise. There is a free trolley that can take you downtown and to a nearby shopping center and it runs hourly. You can also walk to nearby food and a market place. The island itself is unimaginably beautiful. We are already planning a return trip.

Perfect Hawaiian vacation My three adult grandchildren and I stayed at White Sands resort and we loved our condo. The location is wonderful being right across the street from the beach and in the center of things. The condo was clean and well furnished to help our stay be wonderful!

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The unit's large lanai overlooking the pool with a partial ocean view is fabulous. The pool is deep so it is on the cool side. The condo was well equipped with everything you could need which was appreciated. It is also in a convenient location. The unit is a little bit older, but well laid out. We would definitely stay again.

The place was in a great location next to Magic Sands beach and short drive to everything else. Property was well equipped with all the necessities. Would definitely stay again.

The unit was clean and comfortable with easy access to downtown Kona and excursions around the island. Directly across the street from Magic Sands beach with incredible boogie boarding and beautiful sunsets made this one of the best vacations I have had. I would definitely come back.

My plan was to spend as much time as possible with my toes in the sand and this place made life easy. The location is directly across the street from one of the best beaches on the eastern side of the Big Island. Grab a beach chair, umbrella and snorkel (all provided by owner) and 5 min later you are enjoying the soft white sand or snorkeling through schools of fish. Lots of tourists, which is fine by me, but also locals on boogie boards that are very entertaining. I went in Late October and the weather was perfect. This place had everything one needs for cooking your meals, enjoying the game on cable tv, or bbq’ing dinner by the pool. No criticisms or complaints, just a great location for your next Hawaiian vacation.

Was supposed to be 4 adults, ended up with 2. Home was clean and comfy, though outdated and could use some refreshing. Location across from the beach was great. Had everything needed. Owner response was fast. Pool and hot tub sign up req'd currently due to COVID, but wasn't a big issue. Overall, a pretty nice stay!

The condo was very comfortable and clean. Just the right fit for us. Only thing was the water pressure in the showers. Other than that it was perfection. Beds were comfortable. Elevators and parking were conveniently located. The most beautiful white sand beach 1 minute from the door!

Our family of 4 stayed here and had an absolutely wonderful time. The condo is really nice. Two bedrooms and two baths. A living area and kitchen and a huge balcony. The place was well stocked with all we needed for cooking breakfasts and the occasional dinner meal. The hosts provided handy things like beach towels, chairs, coolers, etc that made spending a day at the beach so easy and comfortable. The beach immediately across the street was very nice and convenient. Parking was easy and convenient. The hosts were great to deal with. We just had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again if we get back to the big island.

This was the perfect place for me and my 3 kids. The location is amazing! Just steps away from Magic Sands Beach. My kids were stoked to see a couple sea turtles swim right past us in the waves. Great snorkeling 1 mile away at Kahalu’u Beach park! We also enjoyed the community pool. Easy to get to from the airport and Kayaking at Captain Cook!

Perfect place for our week’s stay: clean, comfortable, all amenities for beach fun, located close to town, restaurants, groceries, beaches & other activities. Owners were very helpful, and the price was right! Definitely would stay again in the future!

This condo is perfectly located to enjoy all that Kona has to offer. The pool, hot tub, and grill area are very enjoyable, and the breezes blowing though are refreshing.

Condo is short distance to ocean. Easy access to pool & bar b que’s with the elevator and staircase close by ... making foot traffic a little higher and noisier. Was a little tough with our 10 month grandson sleeping in the spare room. Condo is very well equipped with cooking equipment, beach toys & pool toys. Best we have ever seen. Some work was completed inside & outside of the condo but Gary contacted us to let us know...very much appreciated. Would rent from them again

We had a great time in Gary's condo in our 7-day stay in White Sand Village. The location is super and the magic sand beach is across the street. Kahuluu beach is in 3-min drive. We had a fantastic snorkeling experience there. The condo is clean and all appliance is in great condition. The funiture is a bit old but does work as expected. The kitchen is nice and we cooked half of time in our stay. The check-in process is a bit rough. My reservation is not listed in the front desk's form and we didn't get the instructions to find room/keys. But with help of the front desk lady, it is resolved in 1-2 hours. Gary didn't return our calls but did return TEXT quickly. In our 7-days there, he was very responsive. He even asked the house-keeper to come for an extra check. Appreciate it. Overall, we are very satisfied with him and enjoy the time there. Would come again if we ever visit the big island in the future.

Very convenient location, near the town, close to Costco, Target and Walmart. Having a kitchen was wonderful, saved a lot by cooking and not having to dine out every night! Nice and roomy, a very pleasant place to stay!

Great location, with everything you could possibly need for your beach vacation.

We absolutely loved the unit- it was clean, well appointed, comfortable and the additional items the owner provided (such as coolers, beach mats, boogie boards) were so great to be available to use! We would stay again in a heartbeat! This was our first time on this island and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay.

I will certainly book for next at Banta Hale... Thank you for making our accommodations so comforting. It's not very often you have a box of kleenex in every room... Thank you.. The nicety's are appreciated. I am a 3 time cancer survivor and when I go and stay, I don't necessarily want to be pampered, I just want comfortable and clean. Thank you. The only thing I might say to change is the vertical blinds in the living room probably need replacing as the slats kept falling off... minor, but over time they wear.. I've had them myself.. Thank you again, Sue and Dave

Our unit in White Sands Village couldn't have been better. Perfect location for everything we wanted to do. Having a separate bedroom and bathroom for my teenage grandson's was wonderful. Unit had everything we needed to prepare meals. Having air conditioning was wonderful as the weather was quite humid during our stay. I would certainly stay at White Sands again if I were to return to Hawaii and I can recommend this unit without hesitation to others seeking a comfortable, convenient and very well priced place to stay.
