We loved our stay at this property. This is right in front of the Magic Sand Beach. The communication with the property management was very swift. Blake always responded to all my questions and requests very quickly. We didn't have any issues here. Its a quick 10 mins drive to happening downtown kona. And little over an hour drive away from most of the attractions either on the kohala side or the south side of the island. It would have been better of the living room was a little more roomier. This property has a parking spot right is right next to the elevator and even the rental itself is right in front of the elevator and that made it very easy move our luggage in and out. There is plenty of beach equipment available here we used 4 beach chairs, 1 lounge chair, 3 bodysurf boards, two beach mats, 2 umbrellas, 1 cooler, and a couple floating devices. (There are more stuff if needed). The pool area and the BBQ area is spacious, it good that the white sands beach managment takes care of cleaning this area frequently. Restroom near the pool are very clean. TV is little small and picture is not that clear as most recent led TVs, however, since we were exploring outside most of the time and only spent very less time watching TV that wasn't an issue for us. Plenty of extra linens and pillows, sheets and comforters. I would love to stay at this property agin on my next visit.

Perfect place for being close to everything in Kona and also quiet and private. Loved the condo and great kitchen with everything for meal prep. Across the street from beach and a great restaurant. Highly recommend.

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: Only negative experience was locating the right condo door since the apartment number is not marked (hint: it is first door to left when stepping off elevator. Was unnerving attempting to enter not knowing if it was the right door coming from Florida where you can be shot for even being on someone’s doorstep where you don’t belong on accident. Other than this experience, GREAT condo well-stocked with all kitchen pots/pans/plates/cups/utensils for more than 8 people. Extra trash bags, laundry detergent, TP, paper towels, dishwasher pods, towels, extra sheets/blankets/pillows. The couch is also a full sleeper if needed to accommodate more than 4 people. Balcony is very nice sized overlooking the pool/hot-tub/BBQ pavilion and views of mountains on one side and beach and sunset on the other. Spectacular vistas!! Couch/bed comfortable. Very clean. Do expect a couple crawlers as it is tropical climate but bug spray in closet. Ample beach towels, beach gear (boogie boards/cooler/2 chairs/beach mats/snorkel gear. Covered parking under the condo right next to elevator (quick/roomy) and stairs. Condo is across the street from a pristine white sands beach with bathrooms, outdoor showers, plenty of shade, sand volleyball court, lifeguard in stand (they are very vocal to warn visitors of the danger of the waves). Beach sand is very soft, no shells and waves are more appropriate for boogie boarders...even the entrance to the beach water. Beautiful crystal clear turquoise waters, but waves are rough upon entry. There is another safer beach a couple blocks north on Ali’i drive with rock walls to break the waves if you prefer calmer waters. I’m a good swimmer, and hubby (6ft 1in) and I both got knocked down and dragged by a wave in the entrance to the beach water. I respect the waves and typically stay shallow for this reason, but still rough waves even in the entry. Lots of sunglasses in the water and even dragged one of my flip flops from the rocky ledg

Our stay at White Sands Village was PERFECT and I would highly recommend this condo to everyone. Everything about the condo was great. The pool was great for my kids (ages 7, 9) although there was not much of a shallow end. During our stay, the beach was perfectly sandy (apparently it's called "magic sands beach" because sometimes the ocean carries the sand away, and it's only lava rock, and there's no way to predict when that might happen!). It was so easy to walk across the street to the beach, and the condo was packed with beach and pool toys, anything you could need! There was an outdoor hose at the condo to wash off the sand, both in the parking lot and by the pool. We grilled almost every night in the shared grill area. The condo itself was right by the pool, and we had a view of the sunset. We ate dinner on the large lanai every night (that was a GREAT space!). We appreciated the AC and the washer/dryer. I would stay in this condo again in a heartbeat. It was about a 12 minute drive into Kona for dining, shopping, or tours. The managing company was also very helpful because our flight arrived early and they allowed up to check into the room early. They were very responsive to my questions. I did not want to leave and I can't wait to come back!

If there were half stars, I'd give this condo 4 1/2 stars. It is quite small, but comfortable. We loved being within walking distance of the beach, and the beach area will be even nicer when the construction is done. I did not give it a perfect rating because, at a minimum, the kitchen floor and some furnishings need to be updated. Just a warning if you're retired and like peace and quite - try to get a unit in the upper building of the complex. That is because people really enjoy the pool that is between the two lower buildings. As a result, there is "happy" noise from the swimmers, especially in the evening.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We recently spent 10 days at this unit. The unit was as described in the listing. We loved the quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of town but still close enough to restaurants and stores. Parking couldn't have been more convenient to the location of the elevator/stairs and the unit. This made moving in and out a breeze! The management company was in constant contact to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We had a few minor hiccups that were easily rectified. I appreciate their diligence and precision with solutions. The unit is well furnished and has ample supplies for cooking. We loved the fact that there were supplies for the beach as well as snorkeling. Overall our stay was great and I wouldn't hesitate to return to this location.

This place was perfect for our stay. It was very clean and the bedding and towels were comfortable and of good quality. The kitchen was well stocked. Everything you need for a day at the beach is available - boogie boards, snorkels, umbrellas, coolers. The property is very well maintained. The pool and hot tub are in great shape and the salt water feels amazing. The changing area/restrooms and BBQ area are also very nice. The location is great. The magic sand beach and an excellent restaurant are right across the street. Ali’i drive is busy but noise was not an issue at all. We will definitely stay here next time we are on the island.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is great place to stay for both great beaches and places to eat or shop! We could just cross the road & we were at magic/white sands beach! The condo was roomy, very well stocked & really clean, plus very comfy beds. It had everything you would need for a day at the beach...”everything “! We didn’t lack for anything. We could sit on the Lanai & hear the ocean waves. The pool are was very nice and relaxing. We would definitely recommend this place to others and plan on returning sometime in the future!

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: Rental unit #118 was clean and well appointed with beach amenities for vacation (boogie boards, pool noodles, umbrellas). The unit was spacious and perfect for my family of four. Loved the large porch. There are views of White Sands Beach, as well as the pool from the porch, which is great, except if there are loud people in the pool. The unit is directly over the pool. The quiet hours of the complex start at 10 pm. A couple nights there were loud groups at the pool for a while. This can be great if you are the group partying, but if you have little kids, it can be tough. The complex is well maintained. We used the pool and the communal grills, which were nice touch. The property manager was easy to get in touch with via text, which was good, since we had an issue with someone parking in our designated spot (resolved easily). Would be nice if there was an update Big Island Revealed book, beach bag and Tommy Bahama style chairs available. Loved that there was a washer/dryer but the w/d unit was hard to use.

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: The condo is beautiful, functional. If you don't have a car, this condo is a little ways out, but you have a beautiful beach right across the street. My only complaint about this place is the front door lock. This is a safety issue and should be address ASAP. The door is hard to open, lock and unlock. Seems like a screw needs to be reset or something simple. The art in the condo is wonderful and fun to look at, the supplies in the house are everything you would need. Including a couple of boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler.The only thing I would add is a drying rack for the back porch. If you want to have a great snorkel experience, go to Two Steps. It is about 25 minutes away and a wonderful free snorkel area where we saw loads of fish, eels and dolphins. Go to the right of the boat ramp. Sunsets on the beach were amazing every night.
