Rory's unit is such a great location if you are trying to explore around Kona and the surrounding areas. He is very accommodating with check-in/check-out times and is such a kind and genuine person. I recommend staying here to anybody who is trying to have fun in downtown Kona.

The room was perfect for what we needed (a clean place to sleep and eat). Not a five star hotel but definitely worth the price. Rory was an excellent host and gave us somes of his best things to do in big island (hikes, beaches, restaurants and activities). He also share with us his member number to get some discounts to a grocery. Thanks for hosting us!

Rory was very accommodating, and his place was great for what we needed it for. We usually like to explore throughout the day, so we just mainly wanted a place to crash at night. Great location, and easy access/ privacy.

Rory's place was convenient to drive to all the places around Kona. It was clean and had all the amenities. No AC but the cross breeze kept it comfortable. The washer dryer was a plus. Rory is amiable and helpful.

This is a good, basic place to lay your head close to the center of Kailua-Kona. You have a comfy bed, private bath and a nice outdoor patio with table and chairs for eating or hanging out. There is no A/C, but there's a ceiling fan and Rory provides an additional fan...using both, I slept comfortably in summer. If you have extra time and don't mind heat coming back uphill, you could walk to town, but it is a stretch. Better to have a car. Rory provides great local advice and loans a guidebook with personal notes. He also has a bunch of beach/water gear to borrow, which came in very handy for me.
