It couldn't get any better!!! You almost live on the front porch alone. We read,relaxed,ate,played games,watched whales as we sat on the couch and chairs on the front porch. Kirstin and Robert are wonderful people and were a delight to get to know them. We found Robert was very good at spotting whales as well as making and building things with with his hands We loved their hot water shower in back of the house. The fact there was no T V was not missed because we just enjoy the beauty of the scenery in the quiet of the outdoors overlooking the ocean. We were interested in how many other people would sit in their cars in the park, across from their house, and enjoy themselves by just beholding the beauty of the ocean and the surrounding area.

The apartment and area were as pictured and described. Our friendly hosts were a wonderful mix of being helpful when we needed it and leaving us to ourselves other times. Area guidebooks were available and local market times were highlighted and mentioned. The area felt safe and the people we encountered were friendly and welcoming. We would recommend staying here and hope to return someday for a visit. Thank you Gigi and Robert!
It is one month soon after we visit Kerstin Gigi's house. The seashore of Pahoa is very quiet,and the blue sea is impressive.The provided room had anything wideiy.We was able to watch the whale,too.A good feeling lasted,and the adjacent outdoor shawer was like the campinngu,and the energy saving life was wonderful.We coped in spite of the middle of the night even if We dropped a breaker without knowing the house rule.
We visit her house again and want to do long stay.
Kerstin and Robert were great hosts! We had a lovely time at their place :) They pointed out a nice hippie market nearby and put good guidebooks at our disposal. The place also is great for star gazing!
Gigi and Robert are very nice and generous people.
We really enjoyed meeting them and staying in this studio space.
Thanks for everything guys.

We had a lovely stay at Kerstin and Roberts studio, located on the first floor. Everything was as advised and as I had another friend with me, they were gracious in providing another bed in the studio for us.
Note that the entire house and studio is off the grid, so you can feel extra good about that carbon heavy plane flight over to the island! Having a kitchenette was great, given the abundance of fresh food and several farmers markets in the area. Just ask your hosts for the plentiful information they can provide about the area. The refrigerator is turned off at night to conserve energy but stays cool enough to keep milk etc overnight.
Enjoy your stay,..
We enjoyed the stay with Kerstin. The hosts were very helpful and accomodative.
The Place is kept very clean and tidy. right in front of the ocean. the view is awesome. The location is convenient to visit all the important places in the east side of big island.
you get hot water in the shower outside, which we enjoyed. the only problem is with getting hot water in the shower in the unit, which we didn't mind.
The location of this house was great. Gigi and Robert were very friendly. We liked waking up to sunrise directly from our bed.
We had a wonderful time with Gigi (Kerstin) and her husband. The room is all you want in a Puna guestroom: privacy, cozy, ocean view and nearby a great wave for surfing, dolphin swims, hot pools, the fantastic Red Road and the new Black Sand Beach (try to catch a drum circle on Sunday afternoons). Nice cozy sofa infront of the house on the lanai is a great place for an afternoon aperitivo. Large spacious kitchen, great dogs if you miss your pets and need a fix but they are kept out of sight and do mot distirb. We had little hot water but that was a minor distraction, especially when you consider the price. In a month on the island, this was proably the best deal we got.
We enjoyed our stay in this cozy apartment very much. The outdoor shower is a great experience! Kerstin is a wonderful, very helpful host. We can only recommend it!
