Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Had a great stay at White Sands Village. Property has a great location right in front of the beach. Unit is very clean, up to date and well stocked. Management company was good at communicating throughout our stay. This unit is right in front of the action, so you have great people and car watching. This does make the place a bit noisy, with the waves crashing and the car stereos driving by. We enjoyed the action, but some may not. Overall a great unit.

Perfect location and has an awesome view of the ocean. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking items you'd need on vacation (not food). I would stay here again for sure!

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It was a great location and I was really happy to stay in apartment apart from below concerns. • It was too difficult to find the apartment. There are 2 separate building but not interconnected. Both are interconnected if you walk. I almost spent 30 minutes to find my unit. • Lockbox was also too old. Once it got out, It didn’t went back again. • Ceiling was too low. I believe it should be less than 7.7 feet only and on top of that there are fans. I was folding my blankets and somehow my hand went into the fan. I was lucky that fan was not in full speed and my hand was saved. • Before travel, I called customer service about what we will get in the apartment. Person said I should not expect anything. Because of this we did lot of extra packing and forced to buy a checkin back with my flight. When I reached there, I found everything what I was looking for like extra towel, ICE cooler, umbrella. If I would have right information, there was no need to pack so much extra and no need to buy extra luggage with my airline.• I was forced to buy insurance which costed my additional $50 which was also a waste for me. I am not sure if I saw any policy document. • I should not complaint about AC as it was told me earlier that unit doesn’t have AC.

Unbeatable location just across the street from Magic Sands Beach and a wrap around lanai to take in all the views. Enjoyed the lanai from morning coffee to catching every sunset. Very clean and comfortable with well equipped kitchen, linen and beach essentials (towels, boogie boards). Even without AC, the cool ocean breezes keep it comfortable especially with the ceiling fans throughout. Short drive to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. Be sure to pack ear plugs since the crashing waves and traffic sounds can get loud. Great place, would definitely stay here again.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo was in the perfect location! The location to Magic Sands beach was superb and cannot be beat! The corner lanai was perfect for early morning coffee and watching the sunrise (in the east) and sunsets over the water at night. The condo was beautifully decorated and we felt right at home. Kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and utensils and having beach gear available to use was an added plus! Being right on Ali’i drive comes with road noise all hours of the day. No Ac didn’t bother us as we kept curtains closed during peak heat times and left doors open to air out condo at night. Box fans were also available to help with heat. The condo was clean and kept up well. The showers could be updated, however, they were clean, functional and didn’t bother us one bit. The staff with K&A were awesome! They answered all of our questions promptly and checked in frequently to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The location to most popular spots was only about 10 minutes in either direction which was perfect for us! The Magics grill across the street is fantastic as well! We loved our extended stay here and would most definitely stay in this condo again in the future!

This is a great condo, clean & very well equipped. The views from the huge balcony are beautiful! We enjoyed the amenities, especially the pool and the pool table. When we arrived the beach was very sandy, but while we were there the surf came up with waves 12-15 feet high that took all the sand away. When the surf is high, this beach is way too dangerous for the average person to boogie board in, but it was fun to watch the experienced surfers and boogie boarders riding the huge waves right from our balcony. The only downside of our stay was that the park across the street is currently under construction, so not only couldn’t we use the park, but also there was a lot of noise from the construction. From what we saw, I’d imagine this construction won’t be done soon, at least a few more months. This was disappointing, but did not take away from our trip overall. We had a wonderful time & would definitely book there again.

While the view from the lanai of this condo is beautiful, there are too many negatives for us to consider staying here again. We would have rated the condo lower due to the excessive construction noise across the street (which Knutson told us has been ongoing for well over a year and yet was never disclosed), but the owner handled our complaint acceptably. This unit is not air conditioned (which is in the listing); however, the fans that are provided are inadequate. They are painfully old (and very dirty) box fans that neither rotate nor sit high enough to properly cool or circulate the air. We specifically asked Knutson to provide better/newer fans since we couldn’t keep doors open most of the time because of all the (extreme) construction noise, but they didn’t even respond to our request. Additionally, we underestimated how noisy the road would be. This beach is frequented by the locals, which would have been fine were it not for the fact that it seems people greet by way of extended horn honking, revving their engines, and setting off firecrackers. All the homeless people living on both the beach and in vehicles parked along the beach added an extra layer of… interest. It might be considered free entertainment that we got to watch the police come by numerous times, one time even doing a complete person and vehicle search and confiscating drugs. I’m not sure our experience would be considered family-friendly, but everyone has different opinions. For us, the guest bedroom was also very disappointing. We have a 14-year old boy who couldn’t even fit into either of the beds. I understand that having the 2 single beds may allow for more guests but in cases like ours it really limits us. Additionally, the blinds could not be fully closed no matter what we did, so we ended up stuffing spare towels between the slats towards the bottom to keep the sun out, and to prevent people from being able to see the entire bedroom from outside. There are positives to this condo, of course. I felt compelled to write this review as I always read reviews thoroughly myself and found the reviews misleading. I now understand that Knutson pushes renters very hard to not say anything negative online, and to only communicate negatives with them directly. Given that this doesn’t allow prospective renters to book with full transparency, I think it is important that all information be made available online.

The condo was in excellent shape and the two balconies for it were much appreciated. It has very nice views of the ocean across the street. The kitchen utensils, pots, pans, and dishes were well stocked. There were boogie boards and noodles for us to use. The only thing about location is the noise from the street below. But we overlooked that when booking...and I would book here again.

The unit is huge (1 master bedroom with ensuite bathroom + 1 bedroom + 1 bathroom) and super well equipped with everything you could need for your stay. The balcony that surround the unit is large (very large !) and very enjoyable to admire the sunset. The small beach located on the other side of the street is funny (it has some nice surf that worth a try). Communication with the rental agency was always smooth and precise. Recommended !

The end units like this one have great views of the ocean, sunset, and beach. The only pitfall of this unit is no Summer months this could be more of an issue than other times of the year. Outside of this is it truly a great place to stay.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great positives! View, location, well stocked kitchen, W&D, beach essentials. However, maintenance was lacking which put a big damper on our stay. Bathroom tub & showers appeared dirty with moldy surround & shower door track; recessed ceiling light in master shower was loose causing a potential electrical hazard; lanai screen door was off the track & needs adjustment to fit properly; bedroom blinds wouldn’t open,cord to raise & lower was missing; front door screen pneumatic closer was detached flopping loose,needs to be reattached. While these aren’t serious issues, except for the master shower light electrical hazard, It does raise the question of ongoing maintenance. The price charged should reflect a well maintained unit. Until these issues are addressed I wouldn’t recommend staying here. We raised these concerns with Blake, owner of Knutson Property Mgmt., who was appreciative & pleasant to work with. He offered us late checkout, which we appreciated.

The property interior was updated, clean and the deck views were amazing! Watching sunsets from the deck was the best. The kitchen is updated which made meal prep and clean up a pleasure (a few sharper prep knives would have been better, but we made it work). No air conditioning in February was not a problem for us. We kept the sliders open and fans on. The breeze from the ocean made it very comfortable. Closing the slider in the master bedroom at bedtime substantially reduced the noise from passing traffic, the surf crashing on the rocks, and the goings on at the beach. There is a public beach across the street that was well attended mosts days and evenings. Sound travels, so if you want quiet surroundings, this may not be the place for you. All in all, a very nice place to stay for us.

My husband, mother-in-law, and I had such a great time!!! The property is exactly across the street from Magic Sands Beach. There is also a restaurant/bar next to beach, as well. The patio was huge- and fun to relax on. The beach was really a blast! Beautiful sand, super fun waves!!! Shopping is just up the street, too. It was really a fantastic beach house!!!

No AC -which is not noted in listing. Provide fans, but you have to keep all windows/doors open and the beach and road noise is substantial all night. It was hot and humid during our stay so sleep was difficult. Other than that, condo was spacious and allowed our family to spread out. We greatly enjoyed playing cards on the lanai with its abundant seating options and great ocean views (sadly kids won;-) Property is a bit dated, but that’s reflected in price- which is very reasonable. But very clean. Note, it is NOT handicap accessible as there are 7 stairs once leave elevator. Property manager responds best to phone. Email responses were very delayed. Overall enjoyed trip and might stay there again if a cooler time of year.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Location! This lovely 2 bd/2ba condo is located across the street from a public beach and park. The end unit overlooks the beach and park. The expansive corner Lanai is appointed with ample chairs and a table for enjoying sunset views and morning rainbows. We found the street noise, mostly music from beachgoers, to be a modest annoyance. However this reliably abated a little after sundown. In addition to the beach, there is a phenomenal snorkeling cove for experienced snorkelers and divers a short walk to the south. Calm morning waters impressed with a dazzling array of fish, living corals, and a few young green sea turtles. Please respect the fragile environment, look, do not touch or stand on the coral. Back to the condo, there is no AC, expect to open windows and lanai doors to enjoy the tropical breeze. Fans are provided to help with air-flow. The bedrooms are comfortable, and set back from the street enough to mute street sounds. I found the wave sounds very relaxing overnight. Throughout the condo, furnishings were comfortable and in good repair. For meal options, A full-service KTA Supermarket and several restaurant options are 2 miles to the south. Magics Beach Grill Snack Shack was nice for a grab and go breakfast in easy walking distance, homemade scones and breakfast burritos are favorites in our family. The restaurant is open lunch and dinner for sit-down dining later in the day. We enjoyed early evening cocktails and appetizers over looking the beach and tidepools, but not a full meal. Service was great, and what we had was quite good. Laundry machines were nice and adequate for our family of four, and are located in a closet in the Master bath.As for the complex amenities, we did not use the pool due to COVID rules, and the beach across the street. I saw the bbq grills they were nice looking, but again we did not use them. Grilling tools are provided in the unit.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We are a family of four and the accommodations were perfect - we will be back. We loved swimming and boogie boarding at Magic Sands beach, hearing the waves all day and night, sunsets, rainbows, people watching and dolphin viewing from the huge lanai. Magics Grill across the street is delicious, too! During busy tourist season you need a reservation but we were always able to walk over and put our name on the list and get a table within a reasonable amount of time. Also nice to be near Keauhou shopping center and the road up to Kuakini. Do note that the condo isn't brand new but the price reflects that - I hope they don't renovate anytime soon because it's likely go out of our price range. Knutson was very responsive too. Also note that the unit could be difficult if you require ADA accessibility - there are elevators but no way to get to the unit without using one set of stairs. Wasn't a problem for us. Parking is directly below the unit, so handy! And there was visitor parking for my local family when they visited. We LOVE this condo.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved everything about our condo! You can’t beat the location and sunsets from the balcony every night. I used to live on the island so I knew the beach across the street would be perfect our our teenage boys to boogie board at, which they did multiple times a day, but it’s not ideal for young children or weak swimmers because of its large waves. There’s a famous snorkel beach about a mile down the road though which is very calm and great for kids and the whole family. There’s a restaurant right across the street as well which isn’t too pricey. The pool is perfectly heated and the hot tub is actually hot at this complex and never very crowded. The residents didn’t seem too annoyed by the tourists which was nice but it’s important to be respectful of the noise. The pool doesn’t close until 10 so we went for late-night swims every night. On the weekends the locals do tend to hang out at the beach in the evenings and make noise but it didn’t bother us. The condo complex as well as the condo felt a little dated but was very clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and the condo had everything we could need. Can’t wait to go back!

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
