Where should I start... Such a nice, clean and relaxing place near to the beaches and the city of Kailua-Kona. The lanai was so romantic so that we ate our dinner there most of the time. It was a blast. There was everything we needed and much more. When the coffee run out, Elena would offer us more. Elena and Danny are great hosts and Elena has thought about every detail. Elena is much cooler than most of the people I know and was always here when i had questions about our surroundings. If i go tho the Big Island again, I will definitely try to stay there again.

We had wonderful 10 days in Elena's and Danny's apartment. They have welcomed us personally with a warm embrace, also Pancho welcomed us on arrival. The pictures from the apartment can not describe the atmosphere you feel when you enter the apartment for the first time. The apartment is very well equipped and also very clean (including change of the linnen after 5 days). We loved the shower on the lanai. Elena provided us with super delicious and fresh fruit as well as with snacks. On a next visit to big island we will definitely stay here again. We can highly recommand Elena and Danny as airbnb hosts. Mahalo

We had a wonderful stay at Elena's and Danny's place. The place was spotless; the view from the lana'i was incredible; the snacks, fresh fruit, and coffee/tea and beer were greatly appreciated; the combination of the comfortable bed with the cool ocean breeze kept us well rested, and the privacy of the apartment felt like our own little getaway. Elena also supplied beach towels, chairs, and snorkels for us. We were visiting our daughter, so we did not see Elena and Danny much, but when we did see them , they were very gracious and helpful hosts. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Elena and Danny are full of aloha spirit and obviously take great pride in providing their guests with an immaculate space. The large ocean view lanai and oversized glass doors provide a welcome breeze at this elevation. This is a great option if you are looking to stay close to town and the beaches. Elena and Danny have thought of everything - all the amenities, beach chairs and towels, and a kitchen full of all the supplies you could possibly need. We highly recommend Elena and Danny's studio:)

Such a bright and welcoming experience... I loved the space (awesome ocean view lanai), slept deeply, and Elena was a total sweetheart. The location was perfect for my snorkel adventures, and I just felt really cozy and at home. Next time I'm in Kona, it will be at the top of my list!!
