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.

I actually live an hour away. I am available via phone and email. I do have an assistant that is available.
Nice quiet neighborhood with walking distance to two of Kailua-Kona's best beaches. To the South is Kahaluu Beach Park which has the best snorkeling on the Island. To the North is White Sands Beach (or Magic Sands Bach as the locals call it) Great boogie boarding and body surfing.
We have have the shuttle service that travels up and down Alii Drive from 7a to 7p. It is two dollars each directions per person. Otherwise with so much to do and see a rental car is the answer. Yes there is free parking at the rental.

Pros: Good location, close to beach and shops and activities. Owner is very responsive. nice little patio.
Cons: Not a real studio, actually 1 bedroom in a 4-5 bedroom house. small humid room, dirty wall and deco. limited outdated furniture. (1 queen bed, 1 coffee table, 2 chairs) mattress way too soft (feels like a very old mattress that lose its support ). cannot sleep comfortably. small bathroom and outdated facilities. And please don't really call a microwave in a closet and few old plates and forks a "kitchen". Old towels, please provide towels are not broken or faded.
Suggestion: Add a few more dollars on your rent, but please provide better amenities.
Our short stay at Bill's place was really nice. Bill was very friendly and accommodating over the phone. The room was large and well stocked with cooking supplies and even items you would take to the beach. Since the beach was within walking distance, we had a picnic there, got to see some amazing body boarding tricks, and watched the sun set over the water.
Everything was as advertised. Convenient location to shoreline and downtown. Would stay again.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It's a simple room as described with everything you need in principle. Little bathroom, some kitchen stuff and a big fridge. The room has seen it's best days and could be cleaner (the bed didn't seem to be covered with fresh sheets). Communication and getting into the room was easy. Best price we could find in this area. Nice beach very close to the apartment (2min by bike).
Bill's studio apartment was exactly as described and a perfect base to explore the Kona side of the island. A lovely little outdoor setting for relaxation, comfy bed, cool room with kitchen utilities makes it all you really need! Communication was excellent, would definitely stay again.
