The studio is relatively ordinary and could use some updating. However, it fulfills the bare necessities and is kept decently clean. We were worried that the place didn't have A/C, but with the fan on, temperature proved to be a non-issue. One minor annoyance is that the windows must generally be kept open to avoid stuffiness, but that allows noise from traffic, birds, neighbors, etc. in the middle of the night/early morning.
The main thing is that Rory is a great host. The amenities that he offers are a really nice touch. We borrowed his snorkel fins, beach towels and cooler, but he also has bikes, boogie boards, snorkel masks, etc. Free laundry is also a nice perk.
Rory was a great host. He is very knowledgeable and helpful about the Island and provided a ton of info and a lighted book for us to plan our activities. He also provided beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel equipment, boogie boards and a surfboard. Everything you could need. Rory was even nice enough to offer us use of the upstairs unit in between rentals. I will say that the upstairs (2br) unit is much nicer, new appliances and better view (nice sunset ). We did have a bit of noise from the upstairs unit when the new people arrived. Great host, but we would recommend staying in the upstairs unit.
Better than any travel agency you can find
Not only Rory is a nice and enthusiastic person, but he lent us witha very good guide book and gave us lots of recommendations on the stuff to do on the island.
Apartment was clean with all the comfort you can wish and we highly appreciated the little terrace with the nice view where we could enjoy the sunset.
That plus all the equipment he provided (snorkeling gear, parasol and beach chairs, surfboard and so on), you cannot dream of more!
Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés : super spot sur Kailua-Kona !
Rory was great! He greeted us when we got there, showed us around, and offered great advice on places to go and things to see. The place was clean and was a nice location, close to downtown, but far enough away to still be quiet. The patio was also nice for my wife and I to hang out on while my son took naps.
The location was great - very convenient for exploring Kona area. The apartment had everything we needed including a nice little private patio. Rory was friendly and helpful. He cheerfully loaned us a cooler for our lunch and recommended hikes and beaches to visit. Excellent snorkelling at 2-Step Beach and Captain Cook Monument.
We stayed 5 days in one of his appartements and it was very nice. The location is very good, all you Need is nearby and the room was clean. Rory was so kind to let us use his boogieboards, snorkle sets etc. for the Beach and he given us some useful clues and a book for our stay. We recommend his lodging for a stopover on BigIsland.

From check in to check out yesterday, Rory was a great host. The suite was super clean and stocked with things I didn't bring with me. It was a nice surprise to have those little extras. Rory has any information at the ready that you need to explore the island and at the end of the day, a comfortable place to lay your head . Grocery stores are close by and the beach is a very short distance. Parking was a breeze, as well as finding the house . I've already booked another stay for my family in a few months!

About the Host, Rory
