The 2 bedroom upstairs unit was fantastic. Super comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, satellite TV, and plenty of fans. People complain about how humid kona gets, but this never felt like an issue in Rory's home - the airflow and fans kept it very comfortable. I stayed here for the Ironman World Championships and the location was very convenient. It is about 2 miles downhill to the pier and parking really wasn't that bad. Very quiet neighborhood with an ocean view - you can actually see the famous swim start. Most importantly - Rory was an absolutely fantastic host. He was kind, helpful and accommodating. I would likely stay in this same location if I qualify for Kona again.

Rory is a great host; ensures you're stay is pleasant. The name "huge ocean view" is so very true. We loved the spacious, comfortable accommodations. The kitchen was well stocked to prepare meals. Comfortable TV viewing (great cable), able to work on my laptop with good WiFi connection. He has a lot of beach equipment to borrow, which we put to good use. Rory will impart as much information as you want about the local sites, beaches, eateries, etc. He has plenty of sunscreen for you so you can get out and enjoy Hawaii. It's a quiet neighborhood but main road is a quick 4 blocks away.

The location and neighborhood is very good. It is close to many shoppings. It has no AC in the unit, so it can get very hot and humid. The open kitchen living room is very spacious. Although the bedrooms are small. Love the wrap around lanai. The entire place can use some renovations/updates.

Response from Rory:
There is no AC in the unit like some people are used to but they were here in September after a tropical storm and it was humid. There are ceiling (multiple sometimes) in every room as well as vortex floor fans for the bedrooms. The Louvre windows are wonderful for the breezes.

Rory was an excellent host. Before we arrived he gave us all the info we needed to find the house, where to park, etc. He was there to greet us and give us the key, as well as offering information on local beaches, etc. We stayed in the 2 bedroom house, which has a big lanai from where we could watch the sun set in the evening. The house is in a residential neighborhood near Walmart, Starbucks, etc., so is conveniently located. The house was clean and well stocked with dishes and linens. He provided us snorkel gear, chairs and a cooler for our trips to the beach. The highlight, though, was Rory himself. He is a wonderful, thoughtful, and caring person whom I am honored to now call friend. All in all, a delightful stay, one that I would repeat in a heartbeat.

My family stay in Rory's house was excellent. Fully agreed with all the positive feedback to Rory. Two highlights: - Rory is very nice guy and he make our stay comfortable. - The location for the house is excellent, and it is very close to Starbucks, Walmart and Safeway. It was really good to start a day with a cup of coffee in Starbucks. Thanks Rory for all the great support! Regards, Yuchun

Rory was very welcoming and embodies the spirit of aloha. Great place, just as pictured. Fantastic location for exploring the island. Nice view from the lanai on a peaceful street.
