NOTE: if this unit is booked we have another one room unit that is immaculate as well and has similar pricing!

The reason we bought this house was the location just 3 miles up from kona town and the ocean view. All of our neighbors share the 'Aloha Spirit!' with us and our guests...

Usually it is sunny in the daytime and then towards sunset time we may get a nice, cool shower or two and then the next morning is usually nice and sunny again....Kona weather is very comfortable-

We have a hot springs HOT TUB on the ocean side of the house so you can relax after a day of fun and watch the ocean and a sunset too. Just steps from the unit. it is always at about103 degrees.

Located just 10 miles south of Kona airport and only a quick 3 miles to Kona town, our cool elevation cools your mind and body after a day of activities or anything you want to do in paradise! Prestigious neighborhood great for walking or hiking.

About Henry Scroggin

Marusya and I love Kona and have lived here for many years and try to accomodate our guests so they always have a great time in kona.

Henry Scroggin purchased this studio in 1996

Why Henry Scroggin chose Kona Coast

We bought our home in Sunset simply because of location which is close to kona town, the perfect 600 ft elevation, and the prestigious neighborhood.

What makes this studio unique

We provide many items and amenities so you don't have to go and buy them like you will if you get an expensive hotel room...

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and myself enjoyed our stay at marusya's and henry's studio. We love the tiled floors, and all the upgrades. The hottub was fun too after a day of touristing! The owner has everything a traveler would need in this upgraded unit.

Thanks so much for the aloha

The price was very affordable too-

Clean, comfortable, quiet and well located

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming and friendly owners. The studio is very clean, comfortable, well maintained and well equipped, felt very homely, a great place to relax in the hot tub and watch the sunset after a day out. The owners have thoughtfully provided an esky, beach chairs and towels as well as snorkeling gear . Well located in a quiet neighbourhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Deluxe Studio.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This studio unit turned out to be fantastic choice for our stay in Kona. The unit was immaculately clean when we checked in, and stocked with all the amenities needed for our vacation on the Big Island. The unit includes access to a hot tub, BBQ and washer/dryer. The neighborhood is super quiet and close to the town of Kona and nearby beaches and restaurants. There are beautiful views of the sunset over the ocean from the patio. Henry gave us some great suggestions on his favorite restaurants and on places to visit. Marusya was also a super host and lovely person. We would definitely choose this unit to stay in again.

Hale no nani!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this studio! The location was quiet and convenient, the view was fantastic, and the space was everything we were looking for. Clean, comfortable, spacious, and the perfect place to return after a day exploring the island. The studio was provided with all sorts of accoutrements, from binoculars to boogie-boards, to assist with whatever adventures we might plan. The kitchen was well-equipped, and there were towels for days. The patio was nice, and the hottub was a great place to catch the sunset. Our hosts were very accommodating, greeting us on arrival, and very responsive when we had requests. Overall we loved it, and look forward returning! We would recommend this rental to our friends!

Perfect foe my wife and I.

  • 5 of 5

I could write this review with one word "AWESOME". Henry and Marusya were gracious hosts and their hospitality was second to none. Read all the reviews, I did, everything said about these guys and the residence is true. It is quite, Peaceful, and clean. My wife and I left the door open at nights to watch the beautiful Kona sunsets, you can hear the breeze rustling through the palm trees we actually thought it was rain drops for the first two days. I know we will be spending more time there. Thanks guys C U soon.

Happy Customers

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The studio was very comfortable and the hosts are fantastic. We had an issue with our rental on the Hilo side and Henry really went out of his way to get us checked in a day early so we could really feel at home. They really have everything you need here, so there was no need to go out and buy anything for your day at the beach. We had forgotten our water shoes, but luckily they even had those! The location is central to town and easy to get to restaurants and some beaches without much driving. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you both!!

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a clean and affordable place to stay for a week and this was it! We used this as our "home base" while we spent our daytime hours touring the island. This place was perfect! It wasn't fancy but it was clean with a nice view of the ocean and met all our needs. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is below the owner's house. It has a private entrance. Henry (the owner) was kind and gracious - he even invited us in for burgers when we arrived during the first quarter of the Super Bowl game (thanks Henry!). It was great to have beach chairs, beach towels, an ice chest, and snorkel gear provided by Henry. Bed was VERY comfortable (I hate sleeping on a worn out mattress). Definitely a good value!
