About the property

Oceanfront Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Relax in your luxurious studio where your backyard is the ocean. Beautiful oceanfront setting where the waves splash just outside your room. Your comfortable bed is less than 35 feet from the ocean. Enjoy the gourmet kitchen & fabulous views in your own private tropical bungalow. Studio guests have their own private covered lanai, separate entrance & parking area.

It is said we have the best location on the entire stretch of Alii Drive... we're located near the very end of Alii Drive overlooking Kahalu'u Bay. The studio is on the north side of our property which is bordered by an ancient Hawaiian temple called the Ku'emanu Heiau that is dedicated to the sport of surfing. Adjacent to the temple is the historical St. Peter's Little Blue Church & Kahalu'u Beach Park, one of the best snorkeling spots on the entire island and only a two minute walk.

If you would like even more room, please inquire about our 2 bedroom home next to the studio (VRBO#12805). Both have spectacular ocean views for sunsets and whale, dolphin, and surfer watching. Although close to shops, restaurants, and downtown Kailua-Kona, privacy is well assured. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, boating, fishing, surfing, sailing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, and volcano watching are just some of the exciting things to do on the Big Island of Hawaii. Come and enjoy . . . live aloha!

THE place to stay in Kona.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great place over Christmas of 2015 and had an amazing time. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Great time in August 2015

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for eight nights and just loved this cozy little surfside nest.

Highly recommended for couples who don't mind the waves swooping in to 10 feet from the lanai. Watch the surfers just offshore all day long. Turtles surface frequently for a gulp of air. And if you like snorkeling like we do, the most accessible snorkeling hole on the whole Kona side of the island is a walk, literally a WALK down the word at Kahalu'u Beach Park. Owner Julie is great to work with, very quick to communicate, with clear information. We plan to be back.

Always a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the studio many times over the last number of years, and have always enjoyed it. The oceanfront location and surf at my door step makes this a great spot to enjoy the sport of longboard surfing.This is one of the most ancient known surfing sites on earth, and the opportunity to stay here and surf till I drop is life affirming and I am always renewed spiritually, physically, and mentally after my stay at the studio.Isn't that what a vacation is all about!

The studio is wonderful. Great very private deck right on the ocean. Nice surf break right out front. Studio is nicely updated with a great kitchen and plenty of room. Couldn't ask for a better location. Thanks so much!

THE Place to Stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here three nights in December 2014 after staying here five nights back in May of 2009. We could not imagine a more perfect place to stay in Kona. It is very clean, has great character with the tiki design touches, a well-stocked kitchen and last but most amazingly, a location set right on the water and next to one of the best snorkeling beaches. You can hit the water as soon as you wake up before any of the other people arrive. We loved sitting out on the patio (which is spectacularly situated on the water) watching the sunrise over breakfast and then having wine with the sunset each day. It beats any hotel room, and you don't have noise from the houses next door, because the waves give you all the peace and quiet you can imagine if there were to be any noise. There is plenty of privacy, too. We would not stay anywhere else in Kona and are already dreaming of our next trip to the Big Island.

Perfectly Private Studio

  • 5 of 5

This studio was perfect for an easy get-away. Its patio looks directly out on to the bay, which offered endless entertainment between the surfers, fish, dolphins and whales. While we went all over the island, we had some of the most fun, relaxing moments just peering out over the bay. There were only two of us, so we had plenty of space in the studio. The full kitchen gave us the flexibility to cook at home, but when we wanted to get out, Kona Town was just a quick drive up Ali'i Drive. Though the studio has neighbors on both sides, we were impressed that the layout gave us plenty of privacy. The owner was very responsive, and easy to work with. We would definitely return, and recommend the studio to others.
