Rory was a great host. The apartment was just as described and a good location in Kona. Rory made us very welcome and imparted some valuable local knowledge. The size of the apartment was very large and very comfortable for four of us. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kona.
We were staying in Rory's house for 10 days. That was great experience! Rory is very friendly guy. He gives some advice where is better to go out (hiking, swimming, shopping.) His house is REALLY big and clean. We enjoyed ocean view and beautiful red sunset from the house. The neighborhood looks safe. There also were 2 different families in the house (on the first floor). However, we never met and never heard noise or something like that. There are 3 spaces for the guests' cars in front of the house. Safeway is in 5 min driving from the house. If you would like to go to beach, it's going to take around 25-40 min to drive. So, Rory's house is a highly recommended place to stay for your vacation!
Rory was a wonderful host. The house is in a nice location, just a few minutes drive to Kona. Rory shared lots of good information about where to go and what to see - he had books, maps and beach gear for our use. It was obvious he wanted to make sure we had a great time. The home was comfortable and spacious with a wonderful view of Kona and the ocean. Would definitely stay again!
Rory is the greatest host! I believe he is running business not only for money, but trying to make people happy and enjoyable. He got really nice heart and great hospitality overall. Huge ++++++
Thanks, Rory and see you again :)
Rory was a great and a very helpful host.
The place is absolutely amazing, it comes with a breathtakingly beautiful view to the ocean. Don't look any further if you're staying on the Big Island, you won't be disappointed.
Many Thanks Rory !!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent trip to the Big Island. Rory was a great host and gave us lots of good info upon arrival. The house is exactly as advertised - definitely a well loved beach house, but its just as portrayed in the photos.
Personally, the city of Kona was not our favorite spot on the Big Island but if you're looking for a very centrally located house in this area with a super host, this is your (website hidden): We loved his cat- what a sweetie!

About the Host, Rory
Single with a long term girlfriend. 54 years old college grad but still a bad speller. Believe myself to be positive caring and compassionate; a spiritual being having a human existence. I have been working my way through some recent challenges believing having come through them more spiritual and a better man.
