Wonderful Hawaiian Style Studio

  • 5 of 5

Colleen and Gary's place is very clean and had everything we needed (and more) during our stay. Colleen was very welcoming and showed us around the studio upon our arrival and even had a basket of local fruits and goodies for us to try. The studio was very spacious and the space was inviting. You can tell that Colleen and Gary had put a tremendous amount of time and effort in making our stay a memorable one. She had beach gear available for us to use: boogie boards, beach towels, umbrella, beach chairs, coolers, and blue ice. There's even extra backpacks and walking sticks if we wanted to go hiking near by. All of the general kitchen amenities are available so we were able to make breakfast in the morning. There are also a lot of different beaches nearby and plenty of restaurants near Ali'i Drive. We were able to go to the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park during our stay (about 15 mins away) and saw plenty of sea turtles. The close proximity to the airport is also a plus!

Hawaiian Delight!

  • 5 of 5

Reasonably priced. Clean. Well organized. Did I mention clean? Close to airport, coast, shopping, easy to get out of Kona. We would definitely stay at this studio again. Our hostess, Colleen, was friendly and willing to help us out with any questions we had. As well, she respected our privacy. I highly recommend this studio as a vacation place for two. We can't wait to get back there!

Coleen and Gary's apartment was immaculate and one of the most well-stocked rental apartments I've ever stayed in. I highly recommend their studio for anyone wanting to experience real Kona living.

Great Home Base Apartment for Exploring the Kona Coast

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hawaiian Studio Style apartment. The apartment was clean, comfortable, affordable, and pleasant with a nice breeze and soothing bird calls. The kitchen had everything we needed and the owner was very helpful in sharing her local knowledge of fun things to do in the area. We definitely would stay here again given the chance.
