About this listing

This cozy studio in a great location so close to White Sands Beach and Kahaluu Beach Park. Why spend all that money on expensive Hotels.

The space

In these challenging economic times, why spend so much on an oceanfront rental when you can enjoy all the advantages of the beach on a low budget?
This centrally located, clean, no frills studio in the heart of the White Sands Beach area off of Ali`i Drive lets you enjoy a stay near the beach, yet just far enough away to avoid the sight and sound of traffic.

The ground floor studio is equipped with a kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator. Wireless internet access is included. A gas grill, washer, and dryer are available for our guests.

Enjoy White Sands Beach for world-class bodysurfing and boogie boarding. Explore Kahalu`u Beach, what some call the best snorkel beach in the Hawai`i. Catch the trolley into downtown Kailua-Kona, a mere 4 miles away. Shop at Keauhou, just a mile south of the studio.




The FREE wireless high speed cable modem can be used on your own laptop or of course you can turn off all electronics and just hang out and read a good book.

Why pay for ocean front or ocean view that you will not see since you will be so busy on your daily island adventures all day anyway? Why pay for a pool when you will be jumping in the ocean just down the street? Why pay for an ocean view when you cannot see it at night? The reality is you will most likely want a comfortable private place to relax to get ready for another day in Paradise.

A tax of 13.42% will be collected upon arrival.

The room is in a nice location and is spacious for two people, and priced well. It has microwave, small refrigerator, plates and cutlery. We stayed here for two nights, we checked in late on the first night to find that pillows had foul smell and we had to spread towels over the pillows. I contacted Bill the next day, he was very responsive and pointed me to additional sheets & pillow covers. He also suggested I run the pillows by the dryer which did help. While changing the sheets I found that the cause of the foul smell was the plush that was put on the mattress. This is potentially a great place if mattress were to be replaced. Also, Bill required to complete a word document while booking the place which asked for credit card number for damage deposit. I was not comfortable giving out my credit card number and suggested to use AirBnb for any charges which he was fine with.

Bill was very flexible to allow my husband and I to stay just one night during our trek around the island! Apartment is as advertised-- clean and simple !

Bill's place was great for what we needed. There were a few bugs like previous reviews had mentioned, but the price was more than fair and the location was great.

Everything was great to book and get to the room. Bill was very responsive to texts/emails. The room is in a great location to be near the beach and restaurants of Kona. With that being said, my wife and I did not enjoy our stay at Bill's. On top of extremely uncomfortable pillows, we had 2 dogs bark all night directly outside the window causing us to get very little sleep. Overall, I would not recommend staying here due to the bed, dogs, and lack of A/C.

Our experience renting from Bill was beyond excellent. The day before we were to arrive at the efficiency we rented Bill contacted me and offered at the same price a much bigger 2 bedroom house that was simply beautiful and convenient to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
