The studio apt was well equipped, the bed was very comfy, the furnishings creative, breezy patio of useful information. Kristina was available to answer any questions we had. Nice location close to beaches, coffee farms , main tourist attractions. We had a great time.
This is a great place to get away from it all but still close to so many attractions and activities. Sitting on the lanai having your morning coffee is pure heaven.
Excellent location close to one of the best snorkeling beaches I have seen. Private location away from the tourist bustle. Host was nice enough to provide snorkeling gear. The bed was amazing. Best sleep in a long time. Highly recommended!
We loved our stay at South Kona studio! The photos don’t do it justice. We LOVED the location. It is tucked away from the tourist scene of town and yet perfectly central to explore all the Big Island has to offer, literally next to the beach but also driving distance to the volcanos. Can we say PRIVATE BEACH!?! The beach is about 1min by car or scenic short walk and has to be the best snorkeling and swimming on the island. We were literally the only people at the beach. The studio has spectacular, jaw-dropping ocean views and front row seats to the world's most amazing sunsets. We were even able to watch humpback whales breaching! The studio itself is extremely well equipped with everything you need for a perfect Hawaiian holiday. We found it to be spotlessly clean and colorfully decorated with vintage furnishings and Hawaii-eqsue items. The patio is very private with BBQ and outdoor furnishing. I can't stress how quiet and tranquil the setting is, you can even hear the whales making noise, splashing, and spouting. The host, Kristina, obviously really cares about her guests and has the best insider tips and goes out of her way to ensure we were happy, well informed and comfortable. I wish we had more time here. Way better than advertised. Five stars. We will be back!
Kristina's place is absolutely fantastic. The apartment is ideal for two people. Quiet, super clean, warm, personally decorated with Hawaiian taste, comfortable (big bed), and well equipped. The location is perfect to visit both the west and the east sides of the island. (If you don't mind a bit of a drive, you can have both a day at Kilauea Volcano and enjoy the sunset at the beach in the evening!) The barbecue allows you to enjoy the local cuisine nightly without spending a fortune at restaurants. She is really friendly and helpful, providing maps and useful tips on were to eat and which beaches and bays are best for snorkeling. The pebble beach near the studio is a joy. Secluded and lovely. I would definitely go back and stay at her lovely place again.
We spent 4 nights with Kristina and highly recommend! The studio, location and privacy was much appreciated. Kristina however was always a text away if we had any questions or recommendations of what to do in the area. Would go back!
My husband and I loved our stay at Kristina's studio - spectacular ocean view for a reasonable price. The place is well equipped, and Kristina has thought of everything (including beach gear) for an enjoyable holiday in Hawaii. Quiet location, close to a very secluded beach (where you won't find a bunch of tourists) - yet centrally located for sightseeing around the entire Big Island. We really appreciated all the knowledge and insider tips (saving us time and money) Kristina provided. If you want to escape the bustle and heat of Kona town, and are looking for a more authentic experienence - look no further. And the mattress is a dream to sleep on...esp. while listening to the sounds of the waves and whales.
