The space

A portable A/C unit makes the condo even more comfortable!
Our unit is one of the few in the Kona Magic Sands complex with an ACTUAL OUTDOOR LANAI. We are located about 2-3 miles from the hub of Kailua-Kona, oceanfront, on the top floor for the best views. There is an on-site pool, 2 bbq's, newly remodeled coin-op laundry downstairs, and one complimentary assigned parking spot. The complex is situated between Magic Sands Beach on one side, and a park on the other. Our kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to eat in or make a tropical drink while enjoying the sunsets. The queen sized mattress with memory foam topper is situated right by the private lanai so you can enjoy the sunrise from bed! The sofa has a queen sized memory foam mattress as well. Beach equipment is provided for your use: Umbrella, coolers, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, extra large beach towels and picnic blankets.
We offer free Netflix on our 55" new TV, free WIFI, and stock a host of books and DVD's. Binoculars (2 pairs) are available to whale watch from the lanai. Travel books to help you get around the island are available for you as well, but make sure to return them for the next guest!

KMS 311 is a stellar spot to stay during your Kona vacation. This was my girlfriend's and my 2nd time visiting Kona in the past 2 years and this time around we had an even better time than before. This unit has all the comforts of home like; most of what you need in the kitchen to cook and eat with; a large TV to watch shows and news on (when you need a break from the sun); a super comfy bed; and the lanai with view is as advertised...simply amazing! The AC in the unit provided us with much needed relief from the heat. During our 10 days in Kona we saw spinner dolphins, bright colorful fish, and turtles on multiple days right from the lanai. If you have a rental car it's about an 8-10min drive to downtown Kona, so the location is great. Magic Sands beach is literally right next to the condo so we enjoyed swimming almost everyday of our stay. This place is truly a gem and we'd most definitely stay here again

The apartment is small but very well furnished, and the view is amazing! Nothing better than sleeping to the sound of the ocean. And the beach right next to the apartment complex is really nice, and it's great to have the pool. I would definitely stay there again, we loved it!

We have stayed at magic sands before but this was the first time at Jans! Loved the Lanai for morning coffee, breakfast, and afternoon happy hour watching the sunset! Waves can be rather loud at night but can close window's & use air conditioning, but we enjoyed the nighttime Hawaiian breezes... just used earplugs to muffle the crashing waves. All the amenities are provided everything we needed for our stay was there. Beach towels and beach chairs where a nice bonus! Will definately be back! Aloha!

My husband and I were having our babymoon in big island and we were blown away by Jan's place. It's so well appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable 5 night stay. The location was incredible, panoramic ocean views from your bed and breakfast on the private balcony watching/listening to the ocean. The magic sands beach was right next door and we had a blast snorkeling there and looking at the colorful fish and turtles! Jan was very prompt and communicative, and thorough. We really hope to return again to this magical place.

The location on the water is wonderful and the Big Island offers SO much. The studio is cute and just enough space for two people, with plenty of amenities. It was great to be able to make breakfast ourselves as the Safeway is a close drive and we were a little over resort dining after some time on Kauai. Easy check-in process with dedicated parking and key in small lockbox. The AC was a lifesaver at night given we were there in early June. The studio did smell musty upon arrival and when we would return from a day out; solution to this was opening patio doors and running a couple fans. Not a big deal to us but could see if people had questions. We pretty much gave up on the wifi as it kept dropping, and used our phones for travel planning, so if you NEED wifi on vacation (but really, do you?) maybe keep that in mind. Would definitely recommend to friends or family making their way here!

Huge Thanks to Jan for this apartment. It has everything you need! We loved falling asleep to the waves crashing and waking up in the morning and having breakfast on the lanai overlooking swimming turtles! If we come back to Kona this where we will be staying!

You will love this well appointed studio. Classic Hawaiian views and the location is terrific for beach, snorkle and pool. The AC worked well on warm days and nights. We will be booking again! Thanks, Paul and Mike
