Very convenient and lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was close to so many things in Kona and had just what we needed. The snorkeling equipment, towels, ice chests and c hairs were used and really appreciated. We also loved using the outside deck to eat. The washer and clothes line were a really nice plus after traveling for 2 weeks. Thanks for providing all of this David. The owner even went out of his way and sent us a charger we left. So nice and appreciated. Thank you,

Great studio just steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great experience staying at David's place. It is minutes from multiple excellent beaches, and David provides everything you need for a day at the beach (chairs, towels, snorkeling gear, body boards...even a cooler and grill if you like!). I cannot stress enough how easy it was to enjoy the beaches of Kona because we stayed here. Wonderful experience.

Great location close to town and beach

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us. We were looking for a comfortable home base for our travels, and this location was just what we needed. David was a great resource for local information and pointed us towards great snorkeling locations and restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area!

Super friendly and helpful host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time and felt as though this section of our holiday was when we were able to experience the true Hawaiian spirit of relaxation and enjoyment for life. David was a great communicator both before and during our stay. Everything we needed for fun at the beach was available. The accomodation was a large studio underneath the main house but our privacy was respected. Waking up to bird song was a great way to start the day. The kitchen was very well stocked and it would be in your interests to check out what is available before shopping incase it’s already provided!
