365 sq ft studio with a king size bed and full kitchen and bathroom with shower. Nothing fancy, but clean, and comfortable, modern studio right on the water with ocean access on calm days. It's just right for two people who don't need a lot of living space. There is a covered area outside with shade and a table with chairs for dining or just relaxing while watching the sea. Milolii Beach Lots Subdivision is located 50 miles south of the Kona Airport.
Oceanfront studio, more like shed looking at a water tank between the shed and the ocean. What was advertised as a sleep 3 room, was really a shed with only TWO pillows. Sleeps 3? Yes, there was an air mattress, but no pillow for the 3rd person. We walked inside and it looked fine, but there was a dirty comb on the bed, sand in the sheets, dirty soap bar in the bathroom with hair on it, dead cockroaches, TWO live cockroach, and bugs in the bed. We are pretty low maintenance people, so we killed the bugs and went to sleep (one of us using a tshirt for a pillow). We resolved to deal with the bugs, but when we woke up, there were ANTS EVERYWHERE! we didn't even bring food to attract the ants. The worst part was our car was COVERED in ants. Outside and inside. Thousands of them. It took us two hours to attempt to get the ants out of our car. We could not even stand on the ground outside of the shed for 5 seconds without ants crawling all over your feet. It was a nightmare.
We packed up all of our stuff and left right away (two hours later with ants still everywhere), called the owner at least 5 times and left a message. NO RESPONSE. Still waiting for VRBO to contact me in hopes of a refund.
To be fair, if this place was clean, it would have been a great quaint little stay. Unfortunately that was not the case. Unless you want to wake up with a million bug bites and deal with getting ants out of your car for three days, I DO NOT recommend this place.
We spent SO much more time, energy, and money trying to clean our car and stuff to get rid of the ants. Definitely not worth the extra spending.
The only reason I gave 1 star was to make sure it showed up. I would 100% give this place a rating of ZERO!
We really enjoyed our stay here, making full use of the outdoor space and snorkeling equipment. The place has all the amenities a couple would need and Jon was very responsive with any questions. Recommended for anyone looking to get away from the tourism heavy areas and experience living aloha in this cool little fishing community!
Jon's cottage was a place that fit our idea of a vacation perfectly. We are not resort travellers and the little green cottage is in an area surrounded by local people, his water front property is perfect for relaxing and enjoying beautiful sunsets. The cottage is clean and very comfortable. The hot water did not work when we arrived and Jon was there to fix it as soon as we called. If you enjoy quite, peaceful locations where you can listen to the surf all night then look no further.

well worth the short drive from Kailua and not far from all amenities and great beaches. Perfect for a couple wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle. Nice to see the nreal night sky without any ambient light.
This met our expectations. No surprises. Just as described in all the reviews. Stayed there four days and never left. If you are looking to relax this is the place. Bring everything you will need. Bring bottled water. Snorkeling access is to the north about three lots. Stairs and handrail to access the water. Wonderful snorkeling.
Due to changes in our plans beyond our control, our family had to book this accommodation on very short notice, so we were lucky to find such a gem available. The owner was very responsive and extremely helpful with directions and dining/grocery options nearby.
It is a small studio with not too many frills, but had all that the three of us (my husband, myself and our 11-year-old daughter) could need and then some. There was a ton of gear for water adventures, a fully stocked little kitchen, wifi, laundry facilities (do your laundry during the day or you'll battle some buggies attracted to the light at night), a fantastic lanai (with shade for the easily sunburned!) where we ate most of our meals, an an absolutely killer view with superb snorkeling right out of the back yard.
And what a lovely, stark, quiet setting. Total peaceful escape from the hubbub of our normal life. And oh my gosh, away from the city, all those stars at night & the wonderful sound of the ocean through the windows-- it was all I could do not to just sleep outside in a comfy porch chair every night!
Great little spot that I can't recommend enough if you're looking for privacy, solitude, phenomenal views, great snorkeling (with good access into the water) and just a getaway from the ordinary.
