About Bill Skipworth

Living in Hawaii for 3 years now. Nothing better than living in paradise!

Bill Skipworth purchased this studio in 2012

Why Bill Skipworth chose Kona Coast

My folks have been coming and staying at the Islander for a few years and I always thought about buying a unit for friends to come and visit and stay. It's a beautiful spot and so conveient to town and activites.

What makes this studio unique

I remodled my condo from top to bottom. Took 6 months and I'm really pleased with the outcome!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kona Islander Inn. The place was clean and had lots of amenities to use during our stay: big beach towels, boogie boards, parasol, a big cool bag, etc. The kitchen had everything we needed, too. It was also very easy to get free parking for our rental car. The area itself is nice, lots of restaurants and shopping close-by but not too loud or crowded. There is also a nice, private pool area in the Kona Islander Inn itself and you can use washer and dryer for a few quarters just a few doors away. We traveled with our 4-year-old who used the extra air-bed, which was - according to him - super comfy. We had some problems with the shower during our stay but Bill was very eager to find a quick solution, which was great.

Perfect Island Paradise Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this condo and loved every minute. I've stayed at several units at The Islander and this is by far the best equipped with everything you need (from cooking utensils to boogie boards)! The location is quiet, but right in the heart of town. And Bill was a joy to book with. I can't rank this unit high enough!

Great location, Great studio!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was clean, modern and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, take food to go and make drinks. The beach chairs are nice to have and make spending the day at a beach much easier. There are nice touches throughout the studio and arriving to a clean place was a welcome sight. We had a great time sitting on the lanai overlooking the gardens. We were surprised that the studio was so close to restaurants, shops and the beach, basically in the middle of everything. We definitely recommend this studio and will stay again on our next visit. The only problem was the parking, or the lack of it. 49 parking spaces for 160 units. We actually had parking at the Inn everyday except for 2. There is a paid parking lot across the street but we were told the underground parking lot was flooding due to the rain so we parked off site which can be risky, just leave your car completely empty so there is no reason for anyone to break in.

Great accommodation in a prime location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bill's condo for 9 days. It was very comfortable, updated and had everything that we needed during our stay. The bed came with a memory foam mattress which was great! The location is ideal for visitors who don't want to rent a car. Close proximity to all shops, restaurants and bars. The beach chairs, boogie board beach umbrella and coolers came all in handy, and were a great addition! Our flight was leaving in the evening and we were able to stay in the condo until we had to head for the airport. If we come back to Kona, we would definitely stay here again! A+
