Rory was a great host. Nice neighborhood and a nice little place with everything you need. Close to a lot of restaurants, the farmers market, and other attractions.

Overall a great stay at this studio for me and my husband's needs! It was quaint, cozy, great value and nicely located to be a central base and do a variety of activities (i.e. a day trip to Hilo). We stayed for 4 nights and never had any issues or problems. Best of all, Rory is one of the friendliest hosts you will ever meet. He's very knowledgeable about the Big Island and will gladly share any tips and recommendations with you, including lending you the Big Island travel guide book where he incorporated some personal notes, which we used immensely during our trip. He also has loads of beach equipment and various sunscreen/bug spray that you can borrow, which was a very nice perk. If you're looking for a no-frills, safe and comfortable place, then I highly recommend this stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the first part of our trip to the Big Island. The unit comes as described, is very conveniently located and checking in was simple. Rory had some great suggestions for hikes and sightseeing, and overall we really liked staying here :)
