Beautiful! Amazing! Loved it!- stop looking and book this place

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! There is a lot of room with a well stocked kitchen, a great comfortable bed and CLEAN!

When you wake up in the morning all you hear is the birds chirping and maybe a turkey or two. It is so peaceful to wake up like that. I wish I would wake up everyday like this. Great way to start the day. The location from downtown Kona is great! It is a 10 minute drive into town, especially if you go the back way.

The pictures do not do it justice. This place is amazing. You need to stay here, so stop looking and book this! Collen and Gary were great hosts and offered any advice we needed about the island. We had so much fun!

Thank you Collen and Gary! We WILL be back!

Book this place- you will enjoy it.

Real gem of a stay

  • 5 of 5

Colleen and Garry have a wonderful, comfortable guest appartment. The perfect place to stay in Kona area. Appartment was well stocked for all our activities. Quiet, accept for morning bird noises which were awesome. Easy access to Kailua on old highway so you don't have to deal with construction on main ring road. Will recommend this one to friends, and we will stay on our next Big Island trip.

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Colleen & Gary were fantastic hosts. The studio was in excellent condition and included a lot of personal touches. The location is very convenient for traveling around the island. We will definitely be staying here if we return to Hawaii.

Beautiful studio

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed our stay in this studio. It was very well equipped, extremely clean with fresh linens weekly including beach towels. We made full use of the beach chairs and umbrella, boogie boards and coolers for picnic lunches. There were ample ice packs for the coolers and ice for drinks made in the freezer. The studio is very private and secure with a view of the ocean. It is very safe and comfortable. Colleen and Gary were helpful with beach suggestions and respectful of our privacy. Would definitely recommend this studio

Absolutly perfect place to stay! Spotless suite

  • 5 of 5

This cute little suite has everything you could possibly need for your stay in Kona. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.

Colleen and Gary were very welcoming and easygoing.

Being up from the ocean the temperature is always pefect, we always left the windows open. I loved that we were out of the city and close to the Kona coffee belt. Awesome snorkeling and beaches a short drive away.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this suite.
