Location Details

This cottage is just a short stroll from the beautiful shores of Magic Sands Beach! With smooth white sands and crystal clear water, this public beach has gained popularity with locals and visitors alike. Spend a day sunbathing on the shore or venture out to experience scuba diving, surfing and sailing with the Big Island Divers Company.

Rent a bike and ride 5 miles up the coast to reach the heart of Kailua-Kona. This town is filled with shops, restaurants, museums, art galleries and plenty of local charm. Take an afternoon to explore the area until you’re ready for a Big Island beer at Kona Brewing.

Indulge your inner adventurer and drive less than 2 hours over to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park!

Admire the views from afar on the Crater Rim Drive or get a front-row view with a hike along one of the many park trails!

  • Great stay at Kahaluu Bay


    The location is perfect. Minutes walk down to the beach in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Close to everything. The cottage is nice and clean and has everything you need. It also includes all the beach essentials. We go to Kona every year and it was our favorite place so far!

  • Off the beaten path, but close to it


    Great spot just off the beaten path, but still close to all the attractions a Kona visitor wants. Tucked at the back of a quiet neighborhood, this cottage was wonderful, with the sounds of frogs, birds and other wildlife greeting us each evening and morning. It's like being on Ali'i Drive without the noise and congestion that goes with it.For beach goers, it's a five-minute walk to Magic Sands Beach (Pro Tip: Use the small trail to the adjacent complex to get there) and about a mile to Kahalu'u Beach Park. Beach chairs, towels, umbrella and cooler are all available. Access to restaurants and attractions in "town" is an easy 10-15 minute drive.The cottage is quaint and comfortable, with a small deck and an outdoor patio with table and chairs. Plenty of storage space for our clothing and an awesome walk-in shower. Communication with our hosts was easy and clear; we felt welcomed here, and would definitely stay here during a future visit.

  • Comfy Bungalow


    Fit our needs perfectly. Quiet neighborhood. Easy access. Comfortable furnishings, although not luxurious, but just what we needed. Comfortable bed. We appreciated the laundry room and the beach chairs since most of our days were spent on various beaches.

  • Amazing Stay!!


    Very clean and cozy cottage. We stayed here almost for a month, while we remotely worked, wifi was good (we both work in tech). This place is 1 bedroom with lots of sun and A/C in house, also lot of outdoor space with table and chairs to sit outside and work. During our whole stay it felt like we were local, no touristy bustle around, very calming and erlaxing

    Location: Perfect very close to Ali drive, Magic sand beach (5 min walk literally)

    Amenities: Everything you need in a home (all kitchen appliances rice cooker, microwave, blender, pots/pans, oven, Beach necessities chair, umbrella, cooker, boogie boards, mats/towel etc, laundry, barbecue)

    If we visit Big island again, definitely will book again.

  • Great location!


    We had such a nice stay at this vacation rental. I titled this review "Great Location" because the location exceeded my expectation. The beach is so convenient to walk to, or drive to- depending on how much stuff you want to haul to the beach!! The property owner is so sweet and gracious and made us feel welcome and comfortable. I appreciated the beach items available!!! Nice quality too...not crappy old stuff that I have experienced at other rentals. I especially LOVED the access to the washer and dryer. It was the best to return home with clean clothes in our luggage! The best part of all is making a new friend! This is a rental that won't disappoint!
