We were apprehensive just like the last reviewer was. Not sure how this place would be. The studio was beautiful, just as described. Had most of everything we would need for our 10 day stay. We wanted a quiet place. We got it! The road dead ends about a mile from the house. Not too much traffic, and nice and quiet. It is a long way from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. The view is magnificent!! The waters edge is 80 feet from the door of the studio. The property is landscaped nicely. The palm trees frame the view of the ocean perfectly. We enjoyed watching the surfers while we relaxed on our porch. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation, this is the place to be! Mahalo Richard and Gerry for an ideal place and for your wonderful hospitality. We hope to stay with you again in the future!
