Ocean studio

Stayed for 12 days in January, 2014
Very nice being on the ocean and the price was very good. The studio was functional but needs lots of updates and several other little things attended to.

Dirty.
A guest from El Cerrito, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 10 days in May, 2013
Poorly maintained, swarming with cockroaches, and dirty on move-in. It's cheap, so I didn't expect much, and I know bugs are a constant problem in that climate. But I've stayed in cleaner and better equipped $20/night hostels, and when I'm forced to pay a $100 cleaning fee, it'd be nice to see some evidence that it was actually cleaned before my stay.Location was OK, I guess. But I wouldn't stay here again, even at half the price.

This unit has everything you need except fins for the boogie boards so bring your own. Plenty of towels, full kitchen, comfortable and efficient furnishings. Excellent location falling asleep to the sounds of surf every night. Will definitely stay here next time on the Kona coast.

A guest from Snohomish, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
The unit itself is not clean. The wall behind of sliding doors are covered with cob web. The pillows, blankets and couch smell. Dishes and blow dryer have a sticky film on them. The manager's office was always closed.I would recommend a thorough cleaning and replacing old pillows periodically. If possible, air out the unit for new tenents.The location is fabulous. The property outside the unit is clean. The unit is well stocked with beach accessories and kitchen essentials.

A guest from bell view, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013
We stayed in the Kona Isle condos for several days before encountering a mix-up on our reservation days. Since it was a last minute vacation, and we were on a budget, the unit was the only one available. The unit was exactly as portrayed in the photos and was close to what we were expecting. Nick was very helpful in promptly addressing the date mixup and found a different unit for us to stay in for the rest of our trip. Overall it was a good time and we were pleased with Knutsen Property Rentals.

Kona retreat
A guest from Sisters, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013
This was the perfect place to end our vacation on the Big Island. A park on one side, Magic sands beach on the other. Lawn and a sturdy rock seawall were all that separated us from the roar of the ocean. The unit was compact and efficient. We felt very safe leaving our doors open on the lanai at night. Nice ventilation, beautiful view on the quieter end of Alii Rd. Very close to exquisite snorkeling and swimming. Kitchen was well stocked. We were very pleased and have already recommended the unit to friends. The photos and description of this listing were quite accurate.

Perfect location by the ocean. Loved having the bed within view of the ocean,and being lulled to sleep by the ocean's waves. The furnishings in the living room were comfortable and attractive. It was inconvenient not to have wifi on the premises. Management was very helpful and friendly.

The Beach next to the Condo is a great little Beach. We had Turtles there saw Dolphins swimming of shore, the snorkling there was as good as anywhere on the island besides Kealakekua Bay. The $83.33 departure cleaning fee could of been put to better use.

We stayed at Kona Magic Sands unit 109 early August, 2012. It's a very nice location, right on the ocean, next door to a lovely beach, with a small pool. In general, the unit is holding up well despite its age. Nice tile floors, comfortable beds, convenient kitchen. The sliding screen doors kept coming off the tracks, however, and the shower door came loose from the hinge- scared my daughter, to say the least. If there were a patio attached to the unit to sit outside and enjoy the view, it would be perfect. As it is, you must go poolside. All in all, very much worth the cost.

This is a prefect place to stay! We loved the location and the property is quiet and nicely kept. This unit hasn't been redone in awhile, but is comfortable. It needs a few minor repairs--screen door and shower door both fell off a few times, but we got them back on. There were only 2 beach chairs--write up says there are 3. But it was great having beach chairs, umbrellas, and boogie boards. There was even a bike. WE loved this place and will definitely come back!

Even a great view from a well-priced condo can be ruined by other condo users who break the rules by smoking (and the trade winds blow the offending smoke right in to every other condo) and talking loudly throughout the night. If I could have picked my neighbors, this would have been an ideal vacation spot.

This place was great!To hear the surf as you fall asleep & wake to the sounds was amazing. Within minutes walking to the prefect beach and prefect access for my mother scooter to the park! I would HIGHLY recommend for anyone with disabilities as it made my mother feel like she had no disabilities! Close to everything yet not in the middle of town. I will with out a doubt stay here again and may consider buying here it was that perfect! Thank you thank you!

This property is in a great location, especially if you like snorkeling. You can snorkel right off the front of the property, though the water is a bit turbid if it's rough. Better snorkeling is just two miles away at Kahaluu Beach Park. Overall the property is acceptable. The communal area (pool, barbeque) are very clean. We thought our suite's dishes could have been a bit cleaner (we had to wash them before we used them), but there were a good amount of dishes and utensils.

We were truly inpressed with our stay at KMS! A nice little surprise when we got there was having some basic toiletries already there which was great since our luggage was lost. The other tenants there were more than helpful with everything. Wonderful place to watch the whales. I already miss the sound of the waves which lulled us to sleep at night. We plan on staying here again!

So close to the ocean and next door to beach
A guest from Saint Charles, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2011
It is a great place to stay if you are looking to take advantage of location to beach and hear the ocean waves at night. Overall the place was a solid stay, and only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of little details... Some old/dirty furnishings, no beach towels, stained shower towels, and lack of feeling "updated". As I said though, if you are looking for a place to hear the waves crash at night (maybe 30 ft from water) and walk 30 seconds to great beach this should be on your short list. They also do a good job of providing bogey boards (3), beach chairs (2), umbrella, and also basic spices for cooking.

Almost Good.
A guest from Sunnyvale, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in December, 2011
The location was great. It had a nice view and sound of the ocean was very calming.The apartment, itself, had some issues that I reported to management but was not fixed while I was there. The sliding screen doors easily came off the rail and at times were a big pain to put back on. The wooden sliding doors also easily came off the track and can not close all the way.Also, this unit does not have internet which is a big inconveniences and the T-mobile 3G signal does not reach all the way into apartment. You have to stand near the front door to get the signal. In short, the apartment is next to a beach that you can snorkel and that is very nice. We saw a turtle while snorkeling. The apartment comes with beach chairs and a surf board which is also very nice.I would definitely stay in the same apartment complex but not necessary this unit due to sliding door issues and the lack of an internet connection.It would be nice if the apartment complex rules allow for hanging things off the railing like wet clothes.

Knutson Property Mgt (Nick Benoit) was Great! Nice young man! The location of the Magic Sands was PERFECT! Best snorkeling & view! The outside of the place was really kept up well! The lady taking care of the outside is so nice and works hard! The inside of our unit #109 could use improvements! The towels were frayed, torn, stained and dingy. The pillows are discolored and there were stains all over the mattress cover....just gross! The curtains are faded and have small holes. The unit is older...and it was surface cleaned, but it needs a good detailed cleaning! Under the sinks there were dead bugs...behind the toilet was gross...the side of the stove has Grease build up and the floor looks as if it could use a good scrub! I went to use the iron and it was caked with mineral deposits (unusable) and the ironing board is decaying! Things need replacing! There are tiles for future repairs laying in the closet which just looks messy! The worst part was the bed! It is a Murphy style UNCOMFORTABLE! If it were my unit, I would scrub it, refresh the towels/linens and buy new stuff when it needed replacing. I would also replace the shelf paper. It would look cleaner and these things don't cost much!! I would ditch the Murphy bed and buy a really comfortable bed! People would rather sleep well then have the little bit of extra room of a Murphy bed creates, in my opinion! We did not call the Mgmt....I cleaned everything so at least I knew it was clean. I know it costs money for the owner to periodically replace things, but if you are going to rent out your place that is the cost of doing business! PLUS, in the long run, you would have to do less advertising because we had several friends waiting to see how it went so they might rent. We go to Kona often and we would have come back if it were more comfortable! I would try another unit if it had a real bed! The location was so nice!
