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 Kona Coast

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.

Owner very helpful, close by, friendly. No airconditioner so it was a little warm but comfortable.

Very comfy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely honeymoon! I was surprised that there were multiple rentals in the same house, but most of the time we didn't see anyone. A couple of the nights (2 out of 12) we had some loud people above us.

David is an amazing host and I would be happy to go there again and again! Mahalo from Kristin and I, we really enjoyed our stay!!

The owner was very friendly and very helpful. The unit was clean and comfortable. Great location near beaches with easy access to locations on the Kona Coast. The kitchen is small and minimum and efficient. Great value and great accommodation for your vacation.

Cozy, close and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The rental was clean and well maintained. David was personable and readily available. It was an easy walk to two very nice beaches. Though close to the Ali'i Drive the traffic dies down in the evening and it is nice and quiet. It is not far to Kailua-Kona. There is a nice shopping center close for food and good Thai food. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again. Thanks David!
