I stayed at Gigi and Robert's place for 5 nights with my girlfriend. They are great hosts, very friendly and helpful and we received some very useful tips from them. The description is very accurate, the apartment is very nice and spacious. The kitchen is furnished for some basic cooking and you can sit at the table outside with a very nice view of the sea. The neighbourhood is very quiet and at night enormous amount of stars can be seen because there are absolutely no lights. It a great base for exploring things like Kapoho Tide Pools, beaches on the coast or going for the lava viewing tours. Tip for guests: try to arrive during daylight, otherwise it is a complete darkness here and the mobile service is not guaranteed. Overall it is a great place to stay and I can definitely recommend it.
My boyfriend and I stayed here with our dog for two nights, and I truly wish we could have stayed longer. Even now, in my apartment in the heart of Honolulu, I long for the peaceful serenity of this Oceanside studio. Robert and Gigi are phenomenal. They are vey friendly and vet accommodating. They are very easy going and fun to talk to, and obviously one of the great perks of having such awesome hosts is they can guide you to all the cool spots nearby. And they really are all nearby! I would love to come back to this exact space, because the calm and happiness that I felt while staying here was unreal. Thanks so much again Gigi and Robert! You guys are great!
Absolutely wonderful vacation at Gigi & Roberts! The studio apartment is exactly as described and pictured in the listing, and it located directly on the Pacific Ocean across from a local park.
The sunrises were beautiful all 5 mornings we were there, at night is was very quiet, and you could hear the whales passing by just off the coast, sometimes slapping their tails and splashing about! There were three LARGE windows in our unit and it was like watching a panoramic movie from an old Hawaiian film. At night the full moon reflected off the ocean and the moon silhouetted the tropical palms leaves just outside our windows --- it was that great!
Our only regret is we wish we had stayed longer.
The room has a good sized refrigerator, private bathroom, a gas cooktop (2 burners), very comfortable bed, and a private outdoor sofa facing the ocean. The area is a 15 minute drive from most stores, there is s small store 5 minutes away and a cafe down the road 3/4 mile. The whole area is a step back in time.
Gigi and Robert are wonderful hosts and were great to talk with and very helpful in many ways, yet respected our privacy totally. We highly recommend this airBNB highly!
Es war alles in allem Super und die Wale direkt vor der Haustür ein Traum. Die Beschreibung ist absolut zutreffend. Man fühlt sich gleich zu Hause.
Robert and Gigi's place is an amazing find--especially for the price! The studio is exactly as described, situated across the road from the most amazing ocean views. Robert and Gigi were very welcoming, and Robert even loaned us some beach towels. (Note: there is a clothing optional beach within walking/short driving distance, if you'd like to swim in the ocean.)
One of our nicest experiences in Pahoa was making a cup of tea and sitting on the porch couch, watching the sun rise.
While the studio is not fancy, it's got everything you'll need--with the added bonus of super nice, non-intrusive hosts living just upstairs.
Die Unterkunft entsprach genau der Beschreibung und den Fotos. Es war sehr gemütlich und ansprechend eingerichtet und alles vorhanden, was man zum wohlfühlen braucht. Meeresblick vom Sofa auf der Veranda und Sonnenaufgang vom Bett aus. Gigi und Robert waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir haben es sehr genossen und würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
We had a fabulous three night stay at this studio! Its simple and charming with amazing views. We saw whales every day and its so quiet in the evening you could hear the waves crashing as we fell asleep. A great home base for exploring the east side of the island. Just know that this home is located about fifteen minutes from town of pahoa where there are a few small eateries and a grocery store. The drive away from it all was a welcome change for us! Great studio at a great rate, you won't regret it!
