Space 650 sq. ft.
Property type studio

About the property

Oceanfront Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Relax in your luxurious studio where your backyard is the ocean. Beautiful oceanfront setting where the waves splash just outside your room. Your comfortable bed is less than 35 feet from the ocean. Enjoy the gourmet kitchen & fabulous views in your own private tropical bungalow. Studio guests have their own private covered lanai, separate entrance & parking area.

It is said we have the best location on the entire stretch of Alii Drive... we're located near the very end of Alii Drive overlooking Kahalu'u Bay. The studio is on the north side of our property which is bordered by an ancient Hawaiian temple called the Ku'emanu Heiau that is dedicated to the sport of surfing. Adjacent to the temple is the historical St. Peter's Little Blue Church & Kahalu'u Beach Park, one of the best snorkeling spots on the entire island and only a two minute walk.

If you would like even more room, please inquire about our 2 bedroom home next to the studio (VRBO#12805). Both have spectacular ocean views for sunsets and whale, dolphin, and surfer watching. Although close to shops, restaurants, and downtown Kailua-Kona, privacy is well assured. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, boating, fishing, surfing, sailing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, and volcano watching are just some of the exciting things to do on the Big Island of Hawaii. Come and enjoy . . . live aloha!

What a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Tiki Hut. Amazing location, as other reviewers have said, some of the best snorkeling in Kona just a short walk down the road. We also walked across the street and rented Stand Up Paddle Boards and launched right there at the beach also. And yes, we saw some turtles right there as well. One of the locals told us there are several turtles that frequent that spot. Perfect.

Loved the sound of the surf right outside the window. Being on Ali'i drive was great. We took advantage and had some nice walks and did a little running there also.

In addition to the excellent snorkeling, the dolphins seem to cruise by the mouth of the bay quite often. And there's always something to watch from the lanai: swimmers, surfers, the crabs or the sunset. We got some excellent sunsets sitting at the lanai as we ate our dinner that we prepared in the gourmet kitchen. In fact, we were in Kona for a week and didn't go to a restaurant for dinner one time. There's an excellent grocery store less than a mile away and there's plenty of cooking gear to make whatever you want.

Working with Julie was easy. Finding the property was no sweat and getting in and out of the property was also easy. Nice parking spot in the driveway.

For us (a pretty active couple that likes to cook our own food), I can't imagine a better spot.

Great location right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! Right next to Kahaluu beach for great snorkeling and just down the road from Kona for fun shopping and dining. KTA grocery store 5 minutes up the road if you want to stock up and cook some meals yourself. Studio was clean and well equipped! We loved watching the surfers and feeding the eels from the great patio just feet from the ocean.

Great time in August 2015

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for eight nights and just loved this cozy little surfside nest.

Highly recommended for couples who don't mind the waves swooping in to 10 feet from the lanai. Watch the surfers just offshore all day long. Turtles surface frequently for a gulp of air. And if you like snorkeling like we do, the most accessible snorkeling hole on the whole Kona side of the island is a walk, literally a WALK down the word at Kahalu'u Beach Park. Owner Julie is great to work with, very quick to communicate, with clear information. We plan to be back.

Always a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the studio many times over the last number of years, and have always enjoyed it. The oceanfront location and surf at my door step makes this a great spot to enjoy the sport of longboard surfing.This is one of the most ancient known surfing sites on earth, and the opportunity to stay here and surf till I drop is life affirming and I am always renewed spiritually, physically, and mentally after my stay at the studio.Isn't that what a vacation is all about!
