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.
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.

Nice quiet Neighborhood.
Rentals cars are always a plus since this is the Big Island. Parking is included and free. Kona also has a shuttle service that runs up and down Alii Drive from 7a to 7p. It is $2.00 each direction
Covered in Rental agreement NO SMOKING!
Great location, walking distance to the beach and a short drive to shops and restaurants. The place was clean and a good size.

To be clear: if you want to stay at this place, at your own risk! This is a no-frill place indeed but I strongly ASK everybody to not trust the stars rating and read all reviews of this listing.
The location is good, the place isn't bad and inside the apartment, it's OK. But the whole building + garden is infested with cockroaches. So during the day, no problem! (email hidden) trying to enter through all holes in windows and doors. I've killed many and for those of you thinking it's not much of an issue, cockroackes could come with you back home in your baggages. And here starts trouble...
So, if you don't mind bugs, this is your place. Otherwise, stay AWAY from this place!
I could go in all other problems (bad wifi, no kitchen, old bed/mattress,...) but just with this bug issue, I feel it's enough said!
At your own risks...
Bill was a wonderful host to work with while in Hawaii! The location was easy to find and with his directions it made it very easy to check in and know what to do for check out. His home was clean, comfortable and was exactly what I was expecting and more! The studio was within walking distance to the beach and a quick drive into town! It was a great place to just relax and gear up for another day on the water! Thank you for letting me rent the room for one evening! I will definitely be back someday!
Bill's place is just as advertised: this is a no-frills location in a nice residential setting just south of Kona. The space is clean and unembellished. There is a small kitchenette — just a sink, small fridge and a microwave — that can help you with basic needs should you decide to store anything in the apartment. It's about a 5-10 minute drive into Kona. Da Poke shack is close by, where they serve great Poke. The Green Flash Cafe is also close for a great cup of Kona Coffee. Stay here if you're looking for a home base to explore the island and a cheap rate (though the taxes, cleaning fee, and airbnb fees do push the nightly rate up a bit beyond the price you see on the website).
Great location - good value for staying in (website hidden) facilities were a little limited but otherwise had everything we needed and it was great to have some outside space.
Nice quiet neighborhood with super quick access to Alii. Apartment is part of a 4 or maybe 5 plex with plenty of space and a nice private patio as well as a communal area with a grill. Very soft bed but adequate.
Studio is in a great location in Kailua-Kona. We were able to walk down the road and catch the bus in to the main part of town for dinner. studio has all basic amenities and is a great spot for a great price. We didn't get to meet Bill, but he was very responsive via text. Mahalo!
