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!
The reservation was canceled 46 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I only have positive things to say about our stay in Rory's Oversized Ocean View two bedroom. My wife and I had never been to the Big Island and we wanted to spend our time in a comfy rental and not a big resort or condominium, that is why we looked at Airbnb. We also traveled with friends and needed a bigger space for all of us. What you see in Rory's pictures of the place is exactly what you get. It is the top floor of his house (he is on sight) and the living room and kitchen are all in one hugh room. There are two bedrooms, both good size and the beds are very comfortable. The one my wife and I slept in had a great memory foam mattress. The bath is great in that it had two sinks and a privacy door to the tub/shower and toilet. The best part of the house was the deck as it was a beautiful view to the ocean. We spent most of our time out there. The kitchen had a double door refrigerator, dishwasher, mircrowave and island for preparing food. Everything was in good working order. The dining room was just to the side with the sliding door to the deck and the ocean view. It all looked just like Rory's advertisement. We also had use of the washer and dryer which made our stay very convenient. Rory also has three studio rentals below, however the house was very quiet and peaceful in a nice neighborhood. Rory also rented me his Camaro convertible one day when the four of us decided to go do separate things. It was fun being in a convertible in Hawaii. And Rory, a gentle man who is always willing to help, gave us ideas on places to go, restaurants to try, directions to the best beaches or to anywhere we were going. While we were there we also witnessed Rory doing the maintenance his places needed. You could tell he had pride in his house and what he rented. All four of us were very content there and would for sure go back. If you want a place that feels like home, this is it!

Very accurate deskription of the lovely appartment with a view and very nice and Calm surroundings.
Rory met us at our arrival and told us all what was worth knowing.
At ours disposal was swimming gears of all sorts, which was very easy and practic.
We had a very Nice stay in 6 days, and the place is Well located in terms of exploring the Island.
I and my family had a wonderful time staying at your house. It is huge, clean, comfortable, and beautiful. It is better than described in the website!
You prepare whatever are needed for your guests such as boogie boards, snorkeling gears, bicycles, washing/drying machine, BBQ Oven, huge kitchen with spices, maps/books of point of interests... You are awesome!
Although I came back, my heart was still there in the big island. I will come back to continue my adventure. I will see you again Rory.
The apartment is clean, spacious, great location with a great view. Look no further and book this place. Rory couldn't be more helpful and kind. We really appreciate his hospitality.
We had a wonderful stay in Mr. Keith's house. He was there to greet us when we arrived in the evening about 6pm and gave us quite useful information about the Big Island of Hawaii each day. He provided us with a booklet about the region as well as tour information and other help.
The house itself is in a quiet residential area and is beautiful in the morning and as the sun sets as well as throughout the day. All the houses in the neighbor are beautiful and well landscaped. The house is located within convenient distance
from shopping centers and the neighbors are quite friendly, saying hello and striking up a conversation on the spur of the moment. The cat dwelling on the premises adds and additional touch of warmth and friendliness.
We wish Rory the best and will try to visit again.

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.
