great place to stay
this was a great place to stay
Uncomfortable and cheap furnishing. Noisy tenants upstairs.
We booked and paid for this studio for 2 weeks and only stayed 3 nights. Unfortunately the interior furniture and bed were uncomfortable and in need of upgrades. We just could not get comfortable at night while hanging out inside. It is not advertised as being downstairs. Noise from the upstairs unit was disturbing; you can hear normal talking voices, toilet flushing, water running, and kitchen appliances being used. We have rented many VRBO's and travel extensively but this unit is not worth the money. It should be priced at about $80/night for what you get. We asked the owners for a partial refund and they declined to refund a cent even though we vacated the studio after only 3 days. We rented a nice hotel in town for the same cost for the remaining 12 days of our vacation. Renters beware; the place looks cute, but it is not worth the money. I've stayed in hostels that had better accommodations for a lot less cost.
Below are just a few online reviews from other visitors in the very same studio. We are sorry Paul didn’t like our place, but since he didn’t contact us before moving out, we were never given an opportunity to address his concerns. We welcome suggestions for improvements and will continue to do our best to help our guests have the best vacation possible.
“A beautiful place! I just moved to the island and needed somewhere to stay for a month. I had my own personal studio apartment with private bathroom and private lanai with fruit trees and beautiful flowers. A great spot to have coffee in the morning. Wonderful hosts! I had the pleasure of meeting them when I first arrived. They are always available if you need them but will give you plenty of privacy too. It's also at a nice elevation so it cools down at night. Overall, a fantastic stay!
“This is the perfect space to rent. It is a large room, has everything you need to fix meals without having an actual kitchen or stove; mini fridge & plenty of table top space. Has microwave, electric frying pan, hot plate, steamer, colander, coffee pot, tea pot, dishes, silverware, etc. Large bathroom with tub, and plenty of space to store luggage and clothes. Very peaceful sitting out on the Lanai (has table and chair set) with all the beautiful Hawaiian foliage listening to the birds sing. It is about 10 minutes down the hill to Kona. Definitely would stay here again, and recommend to others.”
“This place was perfect to stay at. The room was clean and had everything we needed. There isn’t a standard kitchen but there is everything you would need in order to cook at home and save money on eating out. There was a great deck to sit on and relax as well as complimentary chairs, towels , and cooler to take to the beach. We will definitely be making this the place to stay when we come back!”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this guesthouse’s Hibiscus room. The place is very clean, conveniently located near Kona and beautiful beaches and has all the essentials including kitchenette appliances and beach gear. The property is full of lush vegetation such as hibiscus plants, papaya trees, banana trees, pineapple trees, etc. You wake up to the lovely sound of chirping birds and will see a variety of wildlife, even chameleons if you are lucky. We would highly recommend this place to nature lovers who are looking for practicality and being in the center of all the good stuff on West Big Island.”
Always leave wanting more; we did!
The "Hibiscus" room was perfect for our vacation. We spent every morning relaxing on the large lanai feeling the warm breezes. Our view of huge hibiscus flowers, banana and papaya trees was just lovely. The room was clean and large, our bed was comfortable. We had everything we needed to cook when we wanted to eat in. Truly we wanted for nothing. Two days in and I was planning our return. The location is great; easy to get to Kona and points south and getting to points north. Nanette and Anne are warm and welcoming, I enjoyed our conversations. This room is perfect for couples. It is obvious-loved it!
Spent a week in this condo with my brother and our friend. Again, was a super experience for us in Kona. Perfect central location to practically any destination on the island, impeccably clean, loaded with dishes and utensils. Our hosts gave great information on where to visit during our stay and what beaches were best. Also provided a cooler, beach towels and equipment, boogie boards, you name it! Will certainly look to stay here again when we return to the Big Island. Thanks again :)
