Kona Hawaii, I'm a Farmer/Designer
Very nice semi-secluded studio, incredible view, well furnished, a bit aged but clean!
We spent five days here with my wife and 15 months girl.
We are picky about matress and usually have a hard time with that, but we thought this one was excellent!
Nice to go to sleep with the sounds of insects and frogs... Also a bunch of wild rooster that don't wait dawn to make some noise!
One of the best snorkeling spot is a 10 min drive, and we were fortunate enough to meet some dolphins there.
We'd definitely love to come back!
Aloha! We just loved staying in George and Edward's perfect studio apartment. George met us on the road to make sure we got to our place with no problems, led us into the bright apartment with an amazing view of 2-Step (famous snorkling beach) and the expansive Pacific ocean. We were thrilled to be there. Fresh flowers and fruit from the farm filled the place with wonderful aromas and energy. The hosts were extremely attentive and supportive and responded to our questions/needs with ease. It was an easy place to cook, easy place to work, easy place to sleep, and wonderful place to use as a base for our daily trips to the ocean. We would love to be able to stay here again.
The reservation was canceled 29 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Hey we had a lovely stay during our trip in Hawaii!
The place is perfect, clean, an amazing view, just a great place to chill after a long day of surf...
Thanks again for sharing this great flat !
This studio was the perfect spot for us to start our journey through Hawai'i. When we arrived late at night, it was no problem at all to enter the studio. It has a fully equipped kitchen, which was very important for us as we like to cook for ourselves. The view from the balcony is priceless! We loved to eat breakfast in the morning or to see the sunset in the evening. And as it gets cool in the evenings, it was just perfect to sleep. We never had to use the air con.
As for Edward and George, they were very very friendly, nice and answered all our questions right away. We felt welcome from the first second on. We met Edward once and he was very generous and communicative.
We recommend to stay at the studio to everybody who loves the nature of Hawai'i. Mahalo!
The Hale Koa studio fit my needs perfectly. It was so roomy and had everything I needed. Plus, you couldn't beat the sunsets from the lanai! The rural setting was so peaceful (note to future guests: if you're a light sleeper, the crowing of the roosters might warrant a pair of earplugs) and I enjoyed being away from the activity of the touristy areas. The location was great for getting around the south end to the Volcano National Park, as well as north for beaches, snorkeling, and kayaking. I met Edward when I arrived, and he was very helpful with my questions. Maybe next time, I'll get to meet George:) Thank you both for a lovely stay!
Absolutely fantastic stay here! We seriously couldn't have asked for more. Blissfully peaceful yet only a short drive (or walk!) from some amazing beaches. This is a place for people who don't want the hotel resort experience but instead want to be immersed in the Island's natural beauty.
The apartment itself has all you would need and is very cleverly laid out. We loved the welcome we received and thought the accommodation as a whole thoroughly enhanced our vacation. Thank you so much Ed and George for letting us share your piece of paradise. We hope to be back.

My husband and I had a great time staying at the studio. We had a fantastic view of the ocean and it was quite beautiful during the full moon and sunsets. The studio is about 10 minutes from Honaunau Bay and is located close to the main highway.
Very nice home on the Big Island. We were a group of 3 couples celebrating BIG birthdays together. We enjoyed each couple having their own bathroom plus the spacious living areas. Some of our favorite time was spend on the upper deck enjoying pupus and watching the sunset after a dip in the pool.
We choose to "eat a home" and found the kitchen to be ample and well stocked with utensils. The papaya and avocados provided were fabulous.
The beds were comfy and towels including beach towels in good supply.
I did not have an opportunity to meet our host George, but my travel mates said he is generous and wanted to make sure we had a delightful day.
I do recommend Keauhou Villa to families and adults. Just note that each additional guest after ONE is $35 per person per night.
Cute studio with a fantastic view and surrounded by pure hawaiian nature. We spent 5 nights there and loved it. We enjoyed the breakfast on the wonderful lanai every morning. The flat is very well equipped with everything you need. George is a great host. He treated us as friends and told us where to go, what to do and where to eat. He was so friendly and took really care of us.
