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!
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!
Although we didn't meet Bill in person, he was helpful by phone in finalizing our reservation and he responded immediately to emails during our stay.
The studio apartment in a great location: a block away from the ocean and away from busy streets- so we loved being able to keep the windows and sliding patio door open: falling asleep to crickets and night and waking to bird songs in the morning.
The location, south of downtown Kona, allows quick access to Kona, Hwy 11 and many beaches while avoiding much of the traffic.
The apt. itself was spacious for two people.
Occupants of other apartments were friendly and helpful.
It is not fancy - but by being so affordable, we were able to enjoy Hawaii's real treasures:
the climate, the people, the beaches, snorkeling and diving. We stocked up on local fruits and veggies at the farmers market.
Bill was very attentive to any questions I had. Emailed me back almost instantly, Pryor to our stay and during. The place was perfect for us. Great location! Walking distance to beach, snorkeling . We loved it! I have already recommended your place to family and friends.
The studio was very nice and clean,but there were a lot of small bugs on the countertop in the kitchen. Thanks for your hospitality,we had a great time on the Big Island! Greetings Steffi and Gian
My experience was mostly positive! Check in went smoothly! Just like described the key was left inside and the door unlocked! The drive way was large enough for all three people to park. The room was as advertised. The kitchenette had everything you needed apart from a stove, but grills were available outside, though I didn't use them. The fridge was a nice size! The bed comfy! Lots of windows! The Internet worked awesome and cable tv!
Only hiccup was some ants in the kitchen, but come on we are on an island! I did find some 'raid' under the kitchen sink which took care of the ants!
My only complaint would be that the tenants upstairs were loud quite early in the morning. Two mornings they woke me at 6 and 6:30. On another occasion it was a 4am wake up. But that's out of Bill's control!
My overall experience was a positive one!
I also did not meet Bill. He was available via email and responded very quickly. The place did have everything you would need to stay a few nights. However, it looks nothing like the pictures. Looking now I can see that pictures were from 2006. It is not as cozy and the pictures show it to be. It is more run down. It is in a great location, but it needs work to look as advertised in the pictures. The "no frills" in the description is an understatement. I do also have to mention that the bed, especially the bedding was uncomfortable. My boyfriend described it as plastic. If you're just looking for a place to crash close enough to the beach, then this would work for you. Unfortunately, we would not stay here again.
