Royal Palm Suite is on the bottom floor of the home. It has it's own private entry with a Queen bed, a Sleeper couch that makes into a queen bed, Cable tv, wifi, full bathroom, closet, kitchenette area. Full size refrig.,microwave, toaster oven, induction cook top and coffee maker and grinder to brew the famous Kona coffee. There is coin operated washer & dryer in a common room. Outside has a gazebo, table, chairs and a bbq for those who like to grill. There is plenty of off street parking behind the home. The home is situated so that you get the ocean breezes and can hear the waves crashing on the shoreline when the surf is up. We are between Magic Sands Beach and Snorkel Beach (Kahalu'u beach) and both are within walking distance if you just want to hang out at local Beaches. We are also only one mile from Keauhou Center which has a Grocery store, Restaurants, Post office, Theater, Medical facility's, and a farmers market on Saturday mornings, even has music and dance performances on some weekends. You have the beach front town of Kona 5 minutes down Alii Dr. in the other direction which has lots of shops to browse through, restaurants and locations to sign up for activities such as a luau, tours, snorkeling trips, surf lessons, submarine rides, Charters for Big Game fishing and much more, all of this is along the ocean front.
There is two transit systems that run by on Alii dr. making them very accessible. Kona has the most beautiful sunsets, you will see the locals and tourists parked along side of the roads to watch for the green flash as the sun goes over the horizon.
Megan and I were very fortunate to have grown up on the Southern California beaches but with the stress's that came with development we looked and made a move to Kona where the lifestyle was more like the early days of California. We now have a place where we can accommodate others to come and enjoy what we have found to be paradise.
David Hamm purchased this house in 2012
We are located a short distance from the hustle and bustle of town, close enough to get to it and yet just outside of it to have peace when you have had enough and want to relax.
With in walking distance of the 2 most popular beaches in Kona.
This is a quiet place to stay.
Close to beaches easy commut to town
David's place was affordable and a good value. I stayed for two nights in December 2016 with my husband and our 7-year-old grandson, and overall it was a pleasant and relaxing stay, and very affordable. My grandson loved exploring the small but lush yard out back, which included a chicken coop, and looking for geckos. Safe, off-street parking. Good location, very close to snorkel beach Kahalu'u, Magic Sands beach, and Keauhou Shopping Center.
Other Pluses: David was a welcoming host.The Wifi was great, the TV had lots of channels that helped entertain the young one. Shower and bathroom were fine (though small). Full size fridge, kitchen sink & drying rack, electric coffee maker & grinder, (bring your own coffee) microwave and electric hotplate. Affordable coin-operated washer & dryer in the common area looked old, but worked great, and were a wonderful convenience.
Minuses: The unit is pretty small. The second bed is a fold-out couch--when unfolded, it leaves very little living space. When folded up, the space was fine, so I'd definitely recommend this unit for a couple. The couch as a bed was fine for a seven-year-old, but I think an adult might be uncomfortable on it, as the mattress was a bit old and saggy. Some street noise at night from Ali'i Drive.
David was a great host who personally welcomed us. The property was very well taken care of and clean with good amenities. Very close to the beach. I would definitely book this property again but would not recommend it for more than 3 people.
I chose this place for proximity to my friend who I was visiting, and was very pleased. Space was perfect. I had everything I needed and felt safe and comfortable. The units and grounds were very well maintained, and David was available for any and all questions. Would stay here again.
Of all the affordable vacation rentals in which we've stayed in Kona, David's place is by far the best value! Excellent location, very close to snorkel beach Kahalu'u, wave beach Magic Sands, and the well appointed Keauhou Shopping Center - just above which lies the highway from which this amazing island can be explored.
Our suite was clean, bug-free (didn't even get the tiny ants you see in most places!), stocked with all the basic essentials. The Wifi worked perfectly, the TV had lots of channels and the shower was great. The full size fridge, kitchen sink & drying rack, electric coffee maker & grinder, microwave and modern electric hotplate made it easy to prepare meals at home (remember to pick up some coffee beans and other essentials on your way in!). Didn't really miss not having a conventional oven. Very affordable coin-operated washer & dryer in the common area were large and worked well. As mentioned in other reviews, noise from the other suites does travel, but it didn't bother us. Nice private parking off the street, just for guests.
Living close-by, David is a great host - very responsive, helpful, considerate and always pleasant to chat with. He works hard to ensure that his property is kept up and that his guests are happy. Look forward to seeing you again, David!
David was a great host and he made me feel comfortable staying in his place. Driving directions were accurate and he met me there as I pulled in to park my car. After a brief tour I settled in and felt right at home. David has a printed out sheet very handy in the unit that gives you what you need to know including wifi instructions. David was also able to provide dining recommendations.
Overall it was a great unit giving me exactly what I needed. Quiet, comfortable, clean, and a great location.
Maybe a 8-9 minute walk to magic sands beach.
Would not hesitate at all to stay there again!
Some of the best snorkeling is walking distance from here.
