Absolutely PERFECT 4-night stay at this INCREDIBLE studio. We are seasoned travelers who like to stay in vrbos, and we have had the pleasure of staying in some pretty nice places over the years both here and abroad. We have to say that this studio is SPECIAL and FIRST CLASS in every way! Without a doubt, it ranks #1 on our list of places we have stayed, and we wished we could have stayed longer!
First impressions when you walk into the studio: Fantastic, spacious LAYOUT that takes advantage of the incredible VIEW of Mauna Loa, meticulously CLEAN with very tasteful island-style furnishings, extremely WELL EQUIPPED (everything is so well thought out and conveniently provided and efficiently accessed). NICE TOUCHES: towel warming rack (wow – perfect to dry towels in a damp climate), a cooler, umbrella, beach chairs are provided for beach goers, washer and dryer are convenient for guest use.
Location is perfect for those who want a peaceful, centrally located home base with cooler weather from which to explore the north side of the island within 10-30 minute drive (Kohala, Waikoloa, Hawi), the east side of the island within 45-90 minute drive (Hamakua Coast, Hilo), and the west side of the island within 50-60 minute drive (Kailua-Kona, Captain Cook).
And the owners, Jeanne and Bill, are such wonderful people - so representative of the friendly nature and warm hospitality that embodies Hawaii and its people. We feel like we have been long-time friends. To Jeanne and Bill we say “Warm aloha! We will be coming back ‘home’ to stay in your special studio.” Unforgettable place – unforgettable people!
