Great place with excellent hosts
The inland drive down from the Kohala Coast is especially beautiful and dining on regional beef at famous Merriman’s was great, and this lovely studio with excellent hosts was perfect.
Great overnight stay
We stayed at this property the night of October 18, 2017 after seeing a concert in Honokaa. The very large studio is nicely equipped and very comfortable. TV is streaming service only, very good wifi. Watch out for the step down after entering studio. Everything was very clean and we would stay there again.
