Our comfortable and conveniently located studio is a wonderful place to call home during your visit to the Big Island of Hawaii. It is located in a desirable part of town, tucked away among award winning coffee farms yet only minutes to Kona town.
Our private studio is a wonderful place to call home whether it's for a few days or few weeks as you visit the island of Hawaii.
The studio has a King size bed,
however a small child could sleep on the loveseat or another adult could sleep on a provided air mattress. (*additional charge for 3rd adult).
There is a full on kitchenette with refrigerator, freezer, induction cooktop (great for making eggs, rice, pasta, etc), a bullet blender, plates, bowls, coffee maker, toaster and microwave. There is also a BBQ grill on the oudoor lanai (deck).
Enjoy eating or relaxing on the oudoor table overlooking the tropical jungle and pacific ocean beyond.
The guest studio comes with it's own full bath, small kitchenette, private lanai (Hawaiian deck) and ocean view. There is snorkel gear and body boards that are available to all our guests on a first come first serve basis. These are located in a plastic bin on the main house porch.
Our family is very mellow and friendly. We own and run a bakery in downtown Kona so we work and run errands quite a bit.
On work days we leave the house around 4:00 am and get home in the early afternoons...sometimes late at night. We usually end up going to bed pretty early or just relaxing around the house. On our "off" days, we're usually at the beach,
doing house/yard work or relaxing at home.
We invite you to come to our cafe in downtown Kona and enjoy a complimentary home made NY Bagel and cup of 100% Kona Coffee, Organic Apple Juice or Tropicana OJ. (Available to each guest, one time during your stay). Please enjoy 10% off at our cafe anytime during your stay with us as well.
Our cafe has GF and Vegan options too!
We want you to know that we are happy to see you and answer any questions you have regarding your stay or area activities.
When we are home, if you hear or see us, you're more than welcome to come by and say hello! We love meeting our guests, however if you prefer to be left alone and just relax, we totally respect that and your privacy.
Once you've booked your stay with us, you will be given both our cell phone numbers. We are best reached via text and also via the airbnb message thread. We always have our phones on us and are very good about replying and being in touch.
We live in a beautiful area, nestled in the hills just outside of Kailua Kona, known as Holualoa. Driving down the road you'll see coffee farms, banana trees and macadamia nut groves. Our neighbors are mostly coffee growers and farmers. You don't see any other houses from our home but are conveniently located minutes from Keauhou Resort and Kailua Kona where you'll find all the modern conveniences of shopping, dining, movie theaters, entertainment, grocery stores and of course wonderful beaches, snorkeling spots and amazing island adventures.
Our home is located approximately 25-30 minutes from the Kona International Airport,
10-15 minutes from downtown Kona.
If you're arriving on a flight at the Hilo airport,
Kailua Kona & our home is about a 2 hour drive.
Renting a car is a ideal when staying at our place. If you don't have a "smartphone", we recommend a GPS, not only to find our home that is privately located but to also assist in getting around the big island in general. With street names like Kamehameha, Kuakini & Kamakani, you might find the GPS helpful. ,
The studio is located above our Tiki Room studio and is accessible via a flight of stairs. If stairs pose a problem, you will not be happy with this space.
Coqui Frogs: The island has it's share of coqui frogs. They "chirp" from early evening into the night. People always think they're a sort of night bird. It's a very sweet, pleasant jungle sound. If it's the dry season, you might not hear any at all. If we've had rain, it's a symphony.

We loved our stay with Antoinette. The studio was perfect for the two of us as we were looking for a quiet getaway off the beaten path. We loved getting up in the morning and having breakfast on the porch before starting our days adventuring around the island, and coming home to a cozy room where we could relax in the evening. Everything about our stay was exactly what we hoped it would be. Thanks antoinette!
Beautiful location, spacious room and deck. Kitchenette is very small, matching the description, but we managed to have a nice grilled fish dinner out on the balcony, and watch the sunset. Nice quiet place near Kona.
Beautiful place. Would 100% recommend!
Ein wunderbarer Ort zum Sein ist dieses Studio von Antoinette: Grossartig gelegen inmitten überquellender Vegetation, tolle Atmosphäre, wundervolle Aussicht von hoch herab aufs Meer, sehr freundliche Gastgeber, völlig ruhige Nächte trotz eines prächtigen Froschkonzerts. Danke vielmals, dass wir bei euch sein konnten
You would feel like staying in jungle.
You will never see or hear from Antoinette. Do not expect any help or advice.
Staying was fairly nice. I loved bird sound at night.
If you're looking for a very nice studio located very close to Kona but far enough of all the big resorts and tourists, this is the place to choose.
Our time there was just perfect and we wished we had choosen to stay more than 3 days here. Antoinette was very helpful and always connected on the AirBNB app ready to answer our questions.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this beautifully remote place - especially the funny sounds of the tree frogs! We found it with the help of Antoinette's detailed description and the gps and were even able to check in without our host being there (though we have been welcomed by sailor the cat :)). The room was quite big, clean and well equipped with all you need. Definitely a recommended place, even if we only had a chance to meet Antoinette for a few minutes (actually, we almost texted more than we chatted).
This was our best Airbnb experience so far! Antoinette and Johnny are great hosts and provided us with good information about where to go and what to do. The location and the property are amazing! Especially the sunset from the private deck! We had a great time on the Big Island and we definitely try to stay at Antoinettes place again next time we return to Hawaii.
Fantastic spot; nice and private - great view. Great communication w/ Antoinette!
We had a great time at upcountry guest house, the view from the studio, the lanai in front and even from the bed is fantastic. You overlook beautiful flowers and trees and you can see the ocean behind. As it's located on the western side of the island you can watch the sunset in the evening. We especially liked the tropical setting and the rainforest-like feeling. There is no village around so you need a car. The studio was clean and the bed is huge and comfortable. We would book it again.
