Excellent! This is a really great little studio apartment by the beach in a very quiet part of the island. It has nice ocean views from right inside the room. You can lie in bed and see the ocean and even feel ocean breezes in the morning. The apartment itself was extremely clea…

UNCOMFORTABLE, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT. My wife and me had planning this trip since long, hoping to recover stress and exhaustion accumulated during a hard and unlucky year. We were looking forward to enjoy the island and relax in a comfortable and cozy accommodation. Unfortunate…

I’m not sure what caused this guest to blow up. He was cordial while here and proclaimed the place was “good for us” when they checked in and saw the room. They even shook my hand and said goodbye and “thanks” upon check out. He never spoke to me once about any of the issues he mentions here. If he had, I would have happily worked with Air to re-accommodate him. The bed is a brand-new, king-size, $1900.00 Nest Bed setup which all guests universally love. Just to be clear, no guest is ever asked not to flush. And because we were in the wet season during their stay, I didn’t even ask this guest to conserve water at all. I also left an extra set of clean sheets for them and offered fresh towels for midway through their stay as well. But because it is self-catering accommodation (clearly explained in my listing) there is no maid to service the room daily, which they apparently expected. These guests may not have understood the difference between an Airbnb accommodation and a hotel. To future guests, I believe I am clear on what we offer and where we are located. Our 100-plus positive reviews attesting to enjoyable guest stays, my hospitality and local knowledge reflect that! I always respect my guests and love helping them make the most of their time here in Hawaii at a very affordable price point. Aloha.

This South Kona studio was an amazing home base to get to all of the go-to spots in the area, tons of non-crowded beaches, and a TON of hidden local gems (the best farmer's market, fruit stands, locally-roasted coffee, meal options). The studio was very comfortable and is an amaz…

Kristina's place was great! Perfect views and a short drive down the road to Pebble beach. Note the road is pretty steep going down the hill. We drove into town most days and her place was not far from many excellent locations. Kristina provided a wonderful pdf with tips about th…

This is a very nice studio! It is larger than it looks online. VERY quiet. It was great to have a full kitchen. As advertised, the bed is super comfy, King size. There is a quiet overhead fan that keeps the room very comfortable when the porch door is open. I like bed having my…

Our stay was wonderful! Kristina was a great resource on Island adventures, and prompt in response to any questions we had. A central location & offered the comforts of home. The studio was perfect. Highly recommend to anyone.
