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 2011

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.

Light, airy, well-equipped studio near swimming beaches

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very accommodating, quickly answering a last minute booking request and allowing us to check out a bit late. Everything you need is there and all linens, cookware, etc are new or nearly so. Lovely breezes cool the space and it is very light and airy. If road traffic noise bothers you, bring earplugs.

Great studio with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in the studio. Great location to explore the whole island or just to enjoy the nearby beaches. Kitchen (incl BBQ outside), beach equipment and comfortable bed made our stay very comfortable. David helped us with everything we needed and gave great recommendations. Own parking available.

Had a wonderful time on the Big Island at this studio room. David was a helpful host.

  • 5 of 5

The studio was adequately equipped and little extras were a available like beach towels, beach chairs and boggie boards. David even shared some fresh eggs from his chickens ( thankfully, no rooster). Lovely snorkelling right nearby! Would recommend the MantaRay snorkel too!! And you might see dolphins at Two Step!
