Rosalba, communicated very promptly from the time I inquired about the apartment and throughout my stay. The space was as described, very clean and well appointed with lots of useful information and instructions. The beach was a short walk away, which is what I wanted. Therefore, I wish I could say that I enjoyed my stay - but I was never really comfortable. The apartment I rented was occupied when I arrived, and I walked in to a room that was obviously being used by someone else. It turned out that the occupant was meant to be in the space next door, but couldn't get in that door, so they moved into the space I had rented. Rosalba put me in the other apartment, but it was not available during my whole stay, so I had to move mid-week, which was inconvenient. But in addition, little things kept happening that made me feel like perhaps someone was coming in and out. The second day of my stay the entrance door (a sliding glass door) was blocked shut by a wooden dowel so that I could not get in and had to go through a window to get in the apartment. As I was moving from one space to the other (Rosalba kindly gave me the whole day to move) the cleaner came in and stripped the bed while I was away for a few hours. I didn't realize at first, just had this weird feeling that someone had been in the apartment, until I saw the bed. Another night I came home and the curtains were pulled away from the window, when I know that I had shut them. Nothing major really, so this was more of a culminating sensation that made me feel a little uncomfortable. As I was traveling alone and when things feel off, it's just good sense to be on guard. If I knew in advance that some one would be coming in and out, I would not have minded, it was the not knowing and never being quite sure if someone had been in the room or not.

Rosalba made me and my 8 yo son feel very welcome. It was a pleasure to get to meet her in person. The condo location was a convenient drive to everything. However, the nearby intersection at Ali’i Drive is challenging with blind corners in both directions. The condo is clean, nicely decorated, and well apportioned—just what we needed. The A/C window unit is in the bedroom and cools down the room easily when you shut the windows and doors and the French doors to the kitchen. Rosalba provided well written notes about using the condo as well as some sightseeing suggestions. All our needs were well anticipated. It is a lovely home away from home.

The Magic Sand OluKai Caban is a very special place. The house is perfect, clean and comfortable. You'll find everything you need in the house and much more. It is just few steps away from the center of Kona and the main market stores. But the real value of the house is Rosalba, a very special person...much more than a simple host. She was so kind to bring us to the airport the day after our arrival to take the car...I don't know how we would managed it without her support. She's one of a kind!! She's always ready to give you all the information you need about the house and the places to visit...she suggested to visit Green Sand and it ended up to be the best place I've ever seen. Best place and best host ever. Thank you again, Rosalba. Anna and Tammaro

Hello Lori, we at the Magic Sands OluKai Cabana appreciate your feedback and we listen to you. We are installing state of the art soundproof insulation in our lower Ohanas in order to provide complete satisfaction to all our guests. And as of August 17, the insulation will continue on the Ohana next to the one you stayed at. And on next week the insulation will be installed on the one you stayed.

Great place to stay on Big Island. It is quite a big appartement and there is enough space for 4-5 people (but just one bed :)). You will find there everything you need during a stay on one of the Islands of Hawaii. The kitchen comes with a hotplate, so you will be able to prepare your own breakfast, lunch or dinner. Outside there is even a little privat BBQ place to make your own BBQ! If you plan to spend your day at the beach you will find chairs and an umbrella just next to the BBQ place. Even Boxes are available to cool your beer or sandwiches and to bring them along to the beach. If you plan to go snorkeling there are two full equipped snorkeling sets available ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s, snorkel and fins) there are even more (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s and snorkels but no more fins. Coming back from your journey you will have wifi to share all the impressions on social media. Worked perfectly fine for us. There is even a shared laundry machine so you can clean your clothes at the and of your stay. For all Europeans and laundry beginners, just make sure you won't use bleaching instead of soap ;) We loved to spend our honeymoon at this place and can totally recommend it to everyone.

Aloha! My name is Rosalba. I love animals and the outdoors. The best medicine is the natural Vit D from being in the sun all day, feeling the breeze , falling in to a muddy pot hole, going for a bike ride , going for a joy ride, a road trip, a walk with the dogs, going for any trail and hike it, and going for a run ...just about anything makes me happy :) Just being outside is enough for me. I first visited the Island of Hawaii in 2008 and immediately fell in love with the people and the island. The first thought that came out of my mouth was, "Wow, I can retire in here." I'll eventually reach that dream, but in the mean while, I want to share my home with others that want to visit the island and hopefully my guests fall in love with the island and its people like I did!
