The Space

Come and stay in this sweet, cozy and comfortable 400 sq.feet studio apartment, ECO friendly and completely self contained, along the beautiful Red Road in Seaview-Kalapana.

This space is clean, charming and simply decorated with big windows and lots of light. It consists of one big room with a small kitchen and its own bathroom. 100% cotton sheets and towels are provided plus all the kitchen utilities.
The lanai feels like an extra outdoor living-room and the 180 degree panoramic ocean view is stunning as is the beautiful palm-tree filled park right outside.

Many come here to get away from the tourist traffic and enjoy a more quiet way of living and to experience some of this beautiful and truly magical South East Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, where the air is cleaner than mostly anywhere.

There is still so much to do and see very close by:
:
-Whale watching (Nov.-April) from the house.
-Kehena black sand Beach (swim with Dolphins) 10 min. walk.
-Yoga, QiGong, Meditation, Massage, Sound healing, Hula, Ecst. Dance etc. at Kalani Honua, 10 min. walk.
-Seaview Farmers Market, 3 min. drive
-The active volcano lava flow outlook, 10 min. drive.
-The geothermal Ahalanui warm/hotponds, 15min drive.
-Best snorkeling at the Kapoho tide pools, 20 min drive.
-Night Entertainment at Uncle Robert's Tiki Bar w. Hawaiian/Jawaiian music & dance & food, 10 (website hidden). WE ALSO OFFER A PERSONALIZED DEEP SEA FISHING TRIP WITH OUR OWN BOAT IN KONA. FOR A FEE OF $350 PER 2 PERS. YOU GET 5 HOURS ON THE OCEAN WITH SNORKELING IN THE VERY BEST AREA, WHALE WATCHING AND SWIMMING WITH THE DOLPHINS. LUNCH AND DRINKS INCLUDED.

  • I loved Gigi and Robert's place, quiet and serene, and they are kind hosts, very close to the beach, pretty view, well stocked and they are knowledgeable about the area.

  • Gigi and Robert are magnificent hosts and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and ensure we had all that we need! The studio is great- everything you could need for a simple, off-the-grid, experience. We loved our 3 days there and could not have asked for more. The location is great if you want to get away from it all. We used it as a base to travel the island and despite long drives back to the studio every evening because of its remote location, it was an easy trade off for falling sleep to coqui frogs and waves and waking up to cool breezes and the sight of the ocean.

  • We had the most wonderful time at Gigi and Robert's studio! The location is absolutely gorgeous - serene, with ocean views on three sides right from the bed, close to nature, clean, functional - yet simple and completely unpretentious. We particularly loved enjoying our morning coffee with the ocean breeze inside and outside the studio. The outdoor shower was also quite a delight. We would highly recommend this place - if you are looking for some quite time close to the elements and don't mind being 40-50 minutes removed from the city area. For us - it was exactly what we were looking for. We hope we can come back and spend a longer time here sometime soon!!

  • The costal "red road" was the most scenic area for us on Big Island and Gigi's place is right where it starts, perfect location with black sand beach and natural warm pool short drive away. The room was nice with well equipped kitchen and drinking water gallon. Next super market is 14 mls away, so better buy something for breakfast etc in Hilo or Paheo on the way. Gigi and Robert were very helpfull, highly recommended. Only weak point was weak WIFI signal, but they are about to improve it with secound router

  • Our experience was great! It was very peaceful and quiet. We loved being able to see all the stars at night and going to the hot ponds. It was nice having a fridge and little stove to cook. A perfect place for a couple!

  • Wonderful place, great hospitality. Beautiful ocean view and great stargazing at night. The place was clean, the bed, comfortable, and loved the option of either a normal shower or an outdoor shower. I would highly recommend and hopefully we'll be back!

  • I stayed here, traveling by myself for two nights and it was wonderful. The apartment is large and comfortable, steps from the water, and the hosts friendly and available if you need them. You'll need a car - it's very remote and the area is extremely rural. In the two days I was there I was able to visit Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, and Akaka Falls, but it took a lot of driving. The only trouble I had was trying to sleep amongst the sound of waves crashing, palms bristling, frogs singing, and rain pounding - as a city dweller, it was a little overwhelming.

  • Gigi's studio was perfect for us. The view is amazing and the location great. Gigi is a very nice and happy lady, she made sure we had everything we needed and gave us information about the area. Mahalo for a such a great stay!
