Overview

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!

Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

This rental is all about the location. It is amazingly situated, just steps from the sea wall, and a lot of fun to watch the surfers, turtles and waves from the lanai. The interior space itself is a converted garage with high-end finishings. It is adjacent to a larger house rental unit, but the sounds of the surf result in complete privacy. Despite these significant plus points, there also were some cons: it gets very hot in the afternoons, with direct sun exposure through the sliding glass door into the unit, and there is no air conditioning. And although the bathroom, kitchen, and bed were clean on arrival, the overall space would benefit from a deeper clean, because there was a lot of dust around. If you have allergies, as I do, this could be an issue. So overall a good space that could be great if a few issues were addressed.

Simply amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We hadn't been to Hawaii in 30 years (since our honeymoon). We searched and looked at many places to stay and I kept coming back to this listing. I'm sure glad we did. It was everything we were looking for. A great location, big enough for the two of us, quiet with the exception of the surf (a good thing) and close enough to Kona (but not too close). Amazing sunsets from our patio every evening and watching early morning surfers and snorkelers made this the perfect place to stay. Twelve nights went by much too fast!

What a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Tiki Hut. Amazing location, as other reviewers have said, some of the best snorkeling in Kona just a short walk down the road. We also walked across the street and rented Stand Up Paddle Boards and launched right there at the beach also. And yes, we saw some turtles right there as well. One of the locals told us there are several turtles that frequent that spot. Perfect.

Loved the sound of the surf right outside the window. Being on Ali'i drive was great. We took advantage and had some nice walks and did a little running there also.

In addition to the excellent snorkeling, the dolphins seem to cruise by the mouth of the bay quite often. And there's always something to watch from the lanai: swimmers, surfers, the crabs or the sunset. We got some excellent sunsets sitting at the lanai as we ate our dinner that we prepared in the gourmet kitchen. In fact, we were in Kona for a week and didn't go to a restaurant for dinner one time. There's an excellent grocery store less than a mile away and there's plenty of cooking gear to make whatever you want.

Working with Julie was easy. Finding the property was no sweat and getting in and out of the property was also easy. Nice parking spot in the driveway.

For us (a pretty active couple that likes to cook our own food), I can't imagine a better spot.

Great location right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! Right next to Kahaluu beach for great snorkeling and just down the road from Kona for fun shopping and dining. KTA grocery store 5 minutes up the road if you want to stock up and cook some meals yourself. Studio was clean and well equipped! We loved watching the surfers and feeding the eels from the great patio just feet from the ocean.

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.
