What a great host! Rory made us feel so welcome on our brief visit. He has a wealth of knowledge about the island and offered great suggestions for dining out. The studio is exactly as described, very clean, well stocked and a tremendous value. We were more than pleased with the studio and will definitely return to one of Rory's units.
Rory was very welcoming as soon as we arrived. The property is exactly as shown and had all the essentials, I even told Rory I would have packed lighter if I knew all the "extras" he had. Great location, easy to get to town. Rory was very helpful and gave us some great advice during our stay. Thanks again!
This quaint little unit was exactly what we needed. Rory was there when we arrived and had a good chat about what to do on the island and was REALLY helpful.
The room was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The neighbourhood was really quiet and even with others in units next door and above, we still felt like we were the only ones there.
It's a little bit out of Kona (5 min drive?), so make sure you have a car or are fit enough to walk up a windy road! We had a car on this trip and so for us the location was great.
We would definitely stay there again if back on the Big Island. Even if to see the very adorable cat that lives in the block.
I stayed for 10 days. Rory is amazing. His kindness and pizzaz alone are reasons to go back and stay again. The place was small and quaint and had everything we needed. Great safe neighborhood with lots of wild turkeys. The room was what we expected. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had great spray and pressure (very important). Loved making meals and sitting on the lanai to eat or drink coffee. He had a plethora of "beach gear" to use including boogie boards complete with fin sets. Also, the location was very convenient and easily accessible to all things Kona (if you have a car). Rory was a gracious host and available if anything was needed. I will definitely return and am grateful we found this little gem.
We had a fantastic stay. The studio apartment was really clean and comfy and had everything we needed. It even had a small terrace. Rory was the best host you could ever ask for. Extremely friendly and welcoming - and full of suggestions on what to do, including everything from how to get cheap breakfast to how to spend your day. He let us borrow snorkling gear, boogie boards, cooler bag, etc. so we were very well covered. All in all he almost made it to feel like a second home we didn't want to leave.
We really enjoyed our stay with Rory. He organized an early check in which was much appreciated after a long flight. He provided great information about the island and local restaurants. He was also very generous and provided snorkel gear and an island guide book! We found the house a bit far from the main town to walk as it's on a steep hill, but this wasn't too much of a problem as we had a hire car to get around. The room is basic but has everything you need, including some cooking appliances, tv and fridge. Also it was very clean and comfortable. The outdoor area is really nice place to sit and get some fresh air. Thanks for having us Rory!! Chris and Ingrid
Rory, the studio, and central Kona location were great. We loved using the grill, snorkel stuff, cooler, chairs, and outdoor seating.
