About Rod Hall
My wife and I live in Fairbanks, Alaska. After visiting the Big Island numerous times over the years we purchased this old house and decided to start fixing it up. The main house was built in 1972.
Rod Hall purchased this Studio in 2011
Why Rod Hall chose Kailua-Kona
This studio is very conveniently located if you are staying in the Kona area or your trips start from Kona. When we visit the Island we spend most of our time in this area and make day or half day trips from here, getting back in time to go downtown for a dinner. I also feel that this studio has about everything you will need for a vacation at a fair price. You can get to most shopping centers, restaurants and downtown Kailua-Kona in 5 to 10 minutes.
What makes this Studio unique
This is meant to be a budget rental. It has the things you need but not necessarily luxury items. It provides a chance for a more authentic Hawaiian experience. You are not isolated by concrete walls, you may feel like you are living in a small Hawaiian community.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Quiet and very comfortable
Great atmosphere, nice neighborhood, and very comfortable bed. Beach isn't quite a reasonable walking distance, also not too far.
Great spot, great location, great price.
Nice little private spot to sleep and store your belongings while you enjoy everything the big island has to offer.
We would stay there again.
This is a great bargain. We have been to the Big Island many times and spent much more on lodging. We don’t spend a lot of time in the room so this was perfect... just what we needed. It is a very small space but has everything you need. The neighborhood was quiet ( except on New Year’s Eve!) and we made good use of the bbq, cooler and boogie boards.
Good Value For Bucks!!!
We enjoyed our week stay at Property ID 465919 in Kailua-Kona. The Studio was clean, comfortably furnish & had enough kitchen facilities to prepare a good meal; if you wish. The property is close to everything: Kona Airport, Costco, shopping centers & going to Hilo is a breeze with Hi-way 200.
Our next trip to Kona we will definitely check-in at this property again.

Great little place
This was a great place to stay for a week while diving in Kona. The shower and toilet are separated from the room with just a curtain but it is not an issue if you are friends with the person you are with! The best is amazingly comfortable and there is enough room for a little table inside and an area to sit outside. Would definitely stay here again if I return.
Thanks for staying with us
Clean, Affordable, perfectly located Studio in Kona
This place was exactly what we needed for our trip, helped us save money and offered much more. This place was very easy to find and is right off the main highway that leads to Waimea, Saddle Road cutoff, and literally minutes away from town. You can look outside from the driveway and see the sunset. Rod was very quick and helpful in answering any questions that I had. The studio is small but gives enough room for storage, sitting down to eat, and to sleep comfortably. It was very clean (shower, toilet, sink, linens, towels, etc..). The bed slept my boyfriend and I comfortably (didn't feel hard or stiff or uncomfortable). There were options for more pillows and blankets. There were boogie boards, snorkeling gear, a washing machine and a clothesline to dry things such as bathing suits and towels. The studio also offered a large TV with access to Netflix, Amazon Prime and other channels in Roku (if you have respective accounts).
First and foremost, we really liked and enjoyed our rental!! We knew coming to the Big Island that we were going to be out and about doing a lot of things and wanted a comfortable place to rest our heads without the stress of a place that didn't meet the simplest of our standards. We were thoroughly impressed and felt like this place was a second home. Some things to clarify to the people that maybe have reservations about this place:
You are paying $50 a night with a minimal cleaning fee for a place that is locked up and private. It's not going to be a four star hotel setting but it's going to offer you what you need... A clean place to sleep, hot shower, and clean, newer amenities. But you're also getting things such as snorkel gear, boogie boards, ample, free parking in a quiet cool setting. the price is comparable to what you'd pay in a private room at a hostel and yet you'd have to share all of that with other people. The place does allow sound to seep in and out (something to consider) but I felt that everyone around us was really quiet and respectful (which you should be as well considering you're renting in a private neighborhood and probably don't want to create a negative image of vacation rentals). The bathroom doesn't have a door but my boyfriend and I worked out what helped with our comfort levels.
If you want an affordable, clean, cool and comfortable place to stay while you adventure the Big Island by yourself or with a loved one, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND staying here!! Thank you Rod and Ivett Hall!!
(Street Address: 74-5148 Kialoa Place, Kailua Kona 96740) Driving directions: From KOA Airport: Turn right towards Kona on Hwy 19. Go 6.9 miles and turn left on Palani / Hawaii Belt Rd. 1.7 miles, turn right on Palihiolo Rd. .1 mile and right on Kialoa Place 138 feet to green house on the right. Our rental property is located in one of the oldest (early 70's subdivisions in Kailua-Kona) with an elevation of 972 feet. It is the first subdivision you will reach driving up Palani Road above Kailua Town. It is close to an incredible amount of things that the Big Island has to offer. Here is a generalized breakdown of some attractions / activities and time it takes to get there from our place. Restaurants, Farmer's Market and Grocery/Retail shopping from 5 to 20 minutes one way. Closest Grocery is Safeway and Walmart 5 minutes. Costco about 15 to 20 minutes away. Beaches are Kamakahonu (King Kam) Beach (2.4 miles) 6 to 8 minutes straight south on Palani to King Kamehameha Hotel. Here there is swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, kayaking, paddling options. It's a really good choice when you need to hit the beach in a hurry from our place. 10 minutes Old Airport Beach Park, to Hapuna (40 minutes N ), Mauna Kea (45 minutes N). Going South Pier and Kailua town 5 to 10 minutes, White Sands on Alii drive is about 15 to 20 minutes, there are several other shoreline places here as well and a fantastic place to snorkel at Kahaluu Beach Park (20 to 25 minutes away). Further South are Captain Cook and Ho'Okena Black Sand Beach Park and Two Step Beach for Snorkeling. Even though the distance is not that far allow for about an hour to these places because of traffic. There are many many more attractions and things to do. If you have a suggestion I can add it to the information in the future.
