Rory's place was a fine place from which to explore Kona. Very convenient to everything. Rory made sure to greet us and gave us lots of helpful information. When I needed medical attention he was very helpful and very solicitous of my progress. He provides many thoughtful amenities for guests including beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, beach towels and suntan lotion. The kitchen is very well-equipped, even though we did not cook. The neighborhood feels very safe and is pretty quiet. We loved sitting out on the porch; very peaceful with the ocean in the distance and a pretty good sunset! Lots of birds and colorful lizards. Definitely recommend.

Rory's place is just perfect. Great location in a beautiful and friendly neighborhood with the all the amenities one needs. That king size bed had us sleeping like babies and the mornings vibe is just as we hoped it would be. We went all around the Island from south to north and west to east and did not regret one moment having a touch base in Kona were it's close to all the nicest beaches. Rory's knowledge was super insighful for us as he's done and seen pretty much everything himself. Definitely a great place to spend your vacation in Hawaii island !

I can't even say enough about how awesome our stay here was. Rory is an exceptional host, and we felt so at home here. The neighborhood is lovely, and the studio has a beautiful view of the ocean. Rory has everything available there for his guests from gear for snorkeling to backpack for hiking. A day at the beach? There's a cooler, beach chairs, towels, and sunscreen. Even a rental car is available for guests. If you want to check out the other side of the island, there are many resources in the room and feel free to ask Rory for suggestions, he is more than helpful. We had the best time here. I bought some groceries and put them in the fridge and we were fed for the week. My daughter made breakfast for us where we dined on the lanai. Although there are many places in town to dine, we went out to dinner only once on our last night there. We felt very much at home and didn't want to leave. If you want a local feel and a perfect host, then Rory's place is the place to go. Thank you for an amazing, spectacular time. :)

This is a great place, at great value, a 5 minute drive from downtown Kailua. There were no surprises- Rory's description was fully accurate. Rory was very friendly as well, available when needed and giving space at other times. The lanai (terrace) is lovely for enjoying a meal and the place was clean and spacious for a studio. Strong recommendation.

Awesome place with an amazing host. 2 minute drive to the heart of Kona. Rory had boogie boards, coolers, towels and everything else you need for a great day or 5 at the beach. He also had great suggestions on coffee and food in town
