South Kona Studio, 2 mins from beach

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Honaunau, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
Welcome to South Kona, Big Island of Hawaii! I offer a private, quiet, ocean-view studio on the garden level of a single-family home in a quiet, low-key, rural subdivision comprised of interesting custom homes. The self-catering studio is separate and lockable from the main house and has a private entrance via side staircase. Sleeps two guests max. Two minutes drive to our own secluded black-pebble beach with easy access to outstanding snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. Unlike beaches in town, it's very uncrowded here most days and you will probably have the whole beach to yourself. :) We have rainwater catchment here, so thus, water conservation is requested. My place is great for a single or couple who want a nicely located spot near the beach that's still in the West side tropical zone... but seek a setting well away from the... Read more

Now that I’m back home, when I think of this beautiful studio, my pulse slow, my breath slows, my shoulders relax, and a peaceful calm embraces me. What a beautiful place! The pictures do not do it justice. The solitude you see at the beach...More

We really enjoyed our stay at the South Kona Studio. Don’t let the hype about the volcano scare you off! South Kona is nowhere near the eruption activity. You can’t even tell from here that anything is going on. We also enjoyed beautiful clear weather...More

Our stay in South Kona was so nice, and Kristina was very welcoming and gave us excellent suggestions on what to do and see nearby. The best snorkelling of our trip was at the pebble beach at the end of the street - far more...More

About the neighbourhood
South Kona is known for great snorkeling and uncrowded beaches. Our subdivision is stair-stepped onto the steep dramatic slopes of Mauna Loa creating commanding, 180-degree panoramic ocean views. Sunsets are extraordinary experiences on this part of the island, especially at our location and elevation. You feel like you are on top of the world --yet still close to the beach. This is a setting quite off the beaten track, so if you are looking to walk to nightlife or Starbux, this location is NOT the place. If you want to see canopies of stars, hear birds and whales and the crashing surf, that's more like us.

This beachy neighborhood features custom homes, a secluded beach and spectacular views. Free, easy parking in front of the house on safe, quiet street.
Getting around
Car rental is mandatory. We are located in a rural area of South Kona.
