  • Rory was very welcoming to us. The living/dining area was huge and the kitchen was well equipped. If you are planning a trip to kona I highly recommend this place.

  • Rory's two bedroom apartment in Kona was spacious and just what my friends and I needed after a long day of exploring the island. The apartment is functional - there is a full kitchen equipped with pots, pans, utensils, etc. There is also a dishwasher and full-sized refrigerator. Access to washer/dryer is downstairs and very helpful to have. There is no AC, but there are plenty of ceiling fans and the cross winds tend to keep the apartment pretty cool at night. Sunset views are gorgeous and easily visible from the apartment every night. I know you don't go to Hawaii to watch TV, but Rory also has plenty of channels to choose from -- also nice when you're preparing dinner.

    A few notes: the refrigerator and freezer had some difficulty keeping the proper temperature so we ended up losing some food due to spoilage. Keep all of your snacks, breads high up in the cupboards - there are ants in the apartment, most visible in kitchen and bathroom. The toilet often kept running, so we'd have to manually push/pull the toilet lever system to refill the tank/stop water flow.

    Aside from these small things, the apartment was generally clean and served our needs for the week.

    Meeting Rory was a great perk - he is a kind, gentle spirit who is very welcoming and always willing to help. He always has a smile on his face. He also lets you use all of his beach toys (snorkels, body boards, umbrellas, chairs) while there and is a great resource to have in terms of places to visit.

    I would recommend this apartment to someone else.

    Response from Rory:

    All of the negative details mentioned above have been corrected. From adjusting the float in the toilet to setting the temp on the refer and the rain driven ants all were a pretty easy fix once I knew about them.

  • Rory's place was great! Good location, clean, and well equipped.

    I messed up our reservation dates, checking out a day early before my friends early morning flight... Rory offered to put him up in a studio downstairs for the night at no additional charge..! (We insisted on paying a very reasonable rate...) Rory even offered to drive my friend to the airport early the next morning!

    A super nice guy, and EXTREMELY accommodating!

    Thanks again Rory!

  • Rory's house is GREAT and we had a wonderful experience! The house is beautiful - comfortable beds, big kitchen, spacious living room, very clean and well provisioned. The view from the balcony was wonderful.
    The house is on a very quiet street and is about 10 minutes away from everything important. All other touristy locations on the west side are also easily accessible from this location.
    Rory was an amazing host and offered us to use the snorkeling gears/boards/ice chests/etc stacked up downstairs in the house. He also gave us great traveling tips and was always very warm and gracious.

    This was a our first time using Airbnb and Rory made our experience wonderful. Rory - Thanks much :)

    I highly recommend this place and would love to stay here again.

    Regards,

  • A perfect beach-town apartment for those who like to cook and watch the sun set. 10 minutes away from everything important and less than a half hour away from most of the best stuff Kona-side - great location. Quiet street, but most importantly an incredibly gracious host. He offered great travel advice for us first timers and offered pretty much anything he had. He embodies aloha.

  • Indeed a great view. Comfy beds with a big kitchen. My brother enjoyed the snorkeling gear so much, it's half ruining our snorkeling elsewhere. Rory is super helpful and friendly.

  • I wanted to give my parents a gift of a dream vacation and we stayed at Rory's nice condo at Kona for 4 nights. The house is in a perfect location ( only 5 minutes drive to Kona downtown) with a spectacular balcony looking over the ocean. It was very clean and had everything necesarry ( a full kitchen, oven w/ a broiler, large fridge, large bathroom and two bedrooms.) Rory gave us lots of tips about the local events and even called us to remind to see the chameleon when we went to visit the Greenway Coffee Plantation. Oh, and you can borrow his beach supplies ( coolers, snorkeling equipment etc) and they are all in great shape. Definitely recommend and would stay at Rory's place again if we go to Kona. Thanks!

  • This apartment is in a residential area near downtown Kona. It's large, comfortable, and very well provisioned. Rory lives in the building; he was unobtrusive, but whenever we did see him he offered suggestions about places to go and things to do which were genuinely helpful.

    It's a short drive from the apartment to downtown -- one could walk, but it's a significant uphill coming back. We stayed four nights, and drove a lot -- we covered a lot of territory, found all sorts of great spots, and had a wonderful time.

  • What a joy it was meeting Rory, he place was so inviting and relaxing, just like Rory. He made the stay easy and comfortable. He is true quality as a person and a gracious host. We got to the island late in the evening and he was there to welcome us give a brief run down and from that very moment I knew this was the right place. Will I return, without a doubt!! My first time using airbnb and because of Rory it made the whole experience an easy process beginning to end.

  • This is my second time to the Big Island and both times I stayed here at Rory's amazing home with my daughters! When you arrive Rory makes you feel right at home and he is the most amazing host ever! I can honestly say that Rory has become a friend to me and my girls and not just a vacation host! I recommend his vacation home to everyone you won't be disappointed! The view here is so beautiful! We will be back for sure! Aloha, Karmen
