Large Studio located in a quiet private residence. Get away from the crowds and condominium complexes and relax. The property (77-6561 Alii Drive) is across the street from the ocean, built on an ancient lava flow. It is approximately fifteen feet above the beach road and affords wonderful ocean views with the sounds of the surf. It has a semi-private driveway with ample private offstreet parking. It is located between the two most popular beaches of Kailua-Kona:White Sands Beach and Kahalu'u Snorkel Beach.

About Gary Penir

Vacant lot was initially purchased in 1984. Our home was built on the property in 1991 with a downstairs studio which is completely separate and private from the main residence.

Gary Penir purchased this house in 1984

Why Gary Penir chose Kahaluu

The property was purchased for its ideal location. It is perfect for maximizing beach time as well as enjoying bicycling/running on the beach road (Alii Drive).

Exactly what we wanted for our Holiday

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for our recent vacation. Beaches were within walking distance as advertised and we used them every day for snorkeling and sunsets. Kona was close by but not to close and access to the rest of the island from this location worked well for us. The accomodations were great, clean, bright and fully stocked with everything we needed, We used the snorkle gear, ice box, beach chairs, noodle as well as the washer, dryer. We arrived late at night and Gary made sure we had good directions to find the studio. The keys were left inside the lock box as he said they would. We hope to be able to visit again sometime soon. We recommend this rental to anybody that might want to stay in Kona. Mahalo!

Great place to stay on Alii Dr.

  • 5 of 5
I personal love this place, I spend most of my time outside when I visit Hawaii, so staying on Alii Dr is great for us. The place had everything one could need, private lani, BBQ, stocked bathroom, full supplied kitchen, they even have seasonings for cooking. Gary said they had beach and snorkle gear and they had a bunch. Tourist guides, sun screen, Gary had thought of it all. Our travel friends stayed in a condo in Kona town and they were envious of our place which was cheaper, Ha,Ha. Thanks Gary, we found our place on The Big Island.

Great memories of this lovely space

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in Gary's wonderful place 2 years ago and never got around to writing a review when I returned home. Today, near the end of a long cold winter in Canada, I'm thinking back to our holiday in Hawaii and what a great time we had. Gary's place was perfect! We had our run in the morning followed by a swim in the nearby beach, then breakfast outside on the patio before heading out for the day. Highly recommended! Thanks Gary for some great memories!

Our stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late at night and Gary made sure we had good directions to find the studio. The keys were left inside just as he said. We liked the studio very much - it had everything we needed. Because it is close to Alii Drive, we did have to deal with some traffic noise. Our stay was very comfortable. Thanks, Gary!

2nd Time's a Charm!

2nd Time's a Charm!
  • 5 of 5
It was so fantastic the first time we decided to try it again! The only difference is this time it felt just like home! We love the studio apt. It has everything we usually wish we could bring but can't. We stop by the Safeway or WalMart on the way to the house, fill the fridge, unpack and ready to roll. We rent a kayak for a week from the local surf shop just a short distance down the street and are ready to go out each morning! Kayaking with the dolphins is fantastic! Snorkeling across the street, shopping at the farmers market, zip lining and just relaxing on the beach are just a few of the many fantastic things to do. A lunch cruise on the Body Glove was awesome. We will definitely be back a third time! The owner, Gary, is wonderful to work with. The people upstairs are there to help you if you have any problems. But don't worry - there won't be any problems.
