About David Hamm

My wife and I grew up on the coast of southern California where the ocean was a big part of our lives. We decided to make a move to the Big Island to enjoy the great year round weather, warm water, healthier and slower lifestyle.

David Hamm purchased this studio in 2012

Why David Hamm chose Kailua-Kona

We bought this property because it was beautiful, in the same wonderful neighborhood we were living in and close to the most popular beaches in Kona. The owner had taken such good care, it was designed to take in guests and we saw it as a opportunity to continue making it a place that can be enjoyed by visitors wanting to experience the Kona lifestyle, something we get to live everyday.

What makes this studio unique

It is so close to the ocean, you can hear the waves crashing on the lava rock at night. You can walk down to the beach to watch the sunsets.

Clean, spacious and comfortable, great value

  • 4 of 5

Dave is a great host, he's always around tending to things and his quiet chicken flock (no roosters). The unit is all one could ask for, a good location and memorable find for the value in Kailua. The only possible criticism, and it's a nit, is the traffic noise on Ali'i road, but hardly a deal breaker considering the experience of staying in a real Hawaiian neighborhood.

Wicked Awesome

  • 5 of 5

David was welcoming and offered helpful suggestions for our first trip to the island. Walking distance to two beautiful family friendly beaches. We will definitely recommend David’s rentals to friends and family.

The perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are wonderful people. Just a beautiful setting with palms surrounding the area. Surfing, snorkeling, boogie boarding and gorgeous beaches are walking distant. They have boards, masks/snorkels/fins for tenants gratis. Five minutes to downtown & Holualoa area. Chickens & ducks in backyard. Fresh organic eggs gratis on request. Gas BBQ, microwave, hot plate and kitchen utensils. Off street parking in the back. Great price. What more could you ask for? We will be repeat customers. Only drawback is thin walls that are not sound proof, but that is typical of most rentals in the area.
