|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
Studio with Queen bed, full bath, kitchenette with induction hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, WiFi, cable TV, off street parking, gazebo with BBQ, coin op laundry on site. We are located between Kahalu'u Beach (snorkel beach) and Magic Sands beach, both are within walking distance if you want to relax on the local beaches. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing the coast from the suite at night. There is 2 transit systems that run on Alii drive making them very accessible. Also just a 2 minute drive to Keauhou Shopping Center which has grocery store, drug store, post office, restaurants, movie theater, farmers market on Saturday mornings and more. A 5 minute drive to the other direction is ocean front downtown Kona. It also has shopping, restaurants, historical sites and luaus. You can come just to relax or be as active as you want. The island has all the water sports available from swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, kayaking, and big game fishing. There are many sites to see by tour vans or go explore on your own. You have the observatory on Mauna Kea, Place of Refuge, tours of the coffee farms, macadamia nut farms, volcano, lava tubes, lava flows, waterfalls, historical sites of where the kings and ancient Hawaiians lived and much more. The island has some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets ever seen.
Watch for the green flash as the sun goes over the horizon.
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 2011
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.
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.
We enjoyed our stay. Place was nice. Host were great and daughter loved the donkey!
We loved our stay here. David is a wonderful host, helpful and accessible, and a genuinely nice guy. We felt very comfortable. The room was perfect for my boyfriend and me. The room was clean and had everything we needed. There was a coin washer and dryer available, and snorkelling equipment to use. The room had information about the Big Island as well as public transportation (though we would recommend renting a car to get around). The window shutters open to the beautiful view of trees and sounds of ocean and birds. This room is perfect for those looking for a more natural feel for their stay on the Big Island. We will DEFINITELY stay here again if we are in the area. Two thumbs up!
David called me shortly after I grabbed my car for my eta. He met me, showed me the room, keys, tips for activities during my stay. He was always around, but never bugged.
Pretty much everything was provided, all I needed was food to put in the fridge. Even had snorkel gear, and boogie boards to loan. The room was really clean, bed was pretty comfy, shower hot. Pay laundry facility if you need. Completely happy with my stay, and will book in advance for my next stay.
The house was absolutely everything we could have asked for. It's in the PERFECT location for accessing downtown, farmer's markets, shopping centers and all the local beach spots. The house is on a quiet residential street with lovely ocean views. Our room was clean, decorated beautifully and super comfy. During our week, we had an opportunity to spend time with others in the house and with David over BBQ in the front yard. David is an awesome host, and knows all the cool things to do and see on the island. Skip the hotel and stay here for sure...Mahalo for everything you did for us! Can't wait to see you again!!
