About this listing

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.

Wir hatten eine unglaublich tolle Woche bei Kerstin und Robert! Während des Frühstücks hat man einen wunderschönen Ausblick und kann die absolute Ruhe genießen. Kerstin und Robert sind Gastgeber mit Leib und Seele.
The apartment is very nice and in a beautiful location...you can view the ocean from your bed! The hosts are very kind and liable. The only thing is that it's pretty bright and you will wake up with the sunrise. Anyway we really recommend this place!
We would not stay there again.
There is no fan and no aircon in the studio. We had problems to sleep at night, because it was very hot.
For our liking there were way to many mosquitos, roaches and other bugs in the studio.
The fridge has no electricity at night. A minor inconviniance was the absens of a toaster and a microwave.
The view from the lanai was great.
If you want to smoke, you have to leave the premesis and walk to the park nearby.
We had a great time in this location. The friendly couple helped us with everything we needed:)
If you like jungle and remote than this your air bnb! Wifi is spotty at best but the view of the ocean when you wake up if breath taking. Bring snacks and drinks the nearest town is a trek away, visit the thermal pond for a relaxing soak. If visiting volcano park then your only an hour away.
I had a wonderful stay at the little studio, which is very bright and light and airy, with a comfortable bed. I would recommend bringing a sleep mask or something if bright mornings aren't your thing, though. Kerstin and her husband were very welcoming. The kitchen contains anything needed, with lots of cooking stuff left over from other guests, so no need to go and buy the essentials. The studio is very clean. The sofa on the terrace is very comfortable to start the day, having breakfast and looking at the ocean. It's very quiet, I didn't even consciously hear any roosters, which is a first for Hawaii. A grocery store is only a couple of miles down the road, Pahoa town proper about 9 miles up the road. The Southern coast of Big Island is beautiful, with an incredibly lush green forest, tide pools (great for snorkeling), black sand beaches, and big lava fields. Loved my time there, and only wish I could have staid longer.
If You are looking for a place that is off the beaten path yet close to some amazing sights, this is the place for You. The apartment was perfect for my husband and I and within driving distance to a market, thermal pool, best snorkeling on the island, and such gems as the Champagne Pool. Seeing the ocean from the front window every morning was spectacular!
Robert and Gigi were very hospitable, definitely will be back if we visit the island again. We also loved that the apartment used solar power and a cistern with water catchment, less impact on the environment.
