County water! Weekly curbside rubbish pick-up.
Cable TV. Wireless Internet.
It works out better if the studio is left tidy and the deposit is returned. Full Refund gladly and promptly returned and well within 14 days of departure. It is often sent within 3 days of departure. 98% of deposits have been returned.
The deposit encourages guests to spend some of their vacation time to tidy up before departure.
Due to the ever changing, yet HIGH cost of electricity in Hawaii, (three times the price as on the Mainland) use of the dryer is not included unless other arrangements have been made. ($20/week added to rent.)
Adequate clothes lines and drying racks are provided on lanai.
Complimentary laundry service of sheets and towels when brought out to the shared washing machine.
For three week and monthly bookings-electricity is included up to the average kwts based on the prior three months.
Plenty of Solar hot water (with electric backup for those overcast and stormy days) and drinkable City Water.
Studio has vertical blinds and some light comes in at the bottom of blinds. If you want to sleep in, or need pitch black for sleeping, you may not be happy here. This applies in particular to visitors from Europe due to the time difference.
Sorry, no refunds.
Long term rates available with a one month security deposit, acceptable credit report and score, rental application and references.
No pets, smoking or guests.

Former world travelers found the perfect spot to share with others who expect the comforts offered by our accommodations. City water and electricity, quality cable TV and wireless Internet, screened, security (fenced and gated) Nice and new appliances, clean...warm, comfortable and with an ocean view too!
B purchased this Studio in 1983
Why B chose Honaunau-Napoopoo
This acre of land was purchased over 30 years ago with the dream of one day building a home. The home was built in 1998 with a self contained and separate first floor (the studio). A friend (Magic Sands lifeguard!) suggested in 1998 that we rent out the first floor to visitors coming to Kona on vacation. This has worked out well for everyone. Much of our business has been from repeat guests who have become friends and oftentimes fellow property owners.
What makes this Studio unique
Fresh fruits available on the property. Avocados, papayas, mangos, lemons, mountain apple...Peaceful. Pick your own fruits in season. Please note that May through August are the months when we get daily rain and clouds along with higher humidity. Hence the lower rates.

Enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful residential property, very private. The accomodation is ideal for two travellers. Car is a must as it is some distance from beaches and shopping(Costco etc...). But it is also part of the charm as it is away from the maddening tourist crowd! The owner was very helpful but not intrusive. Yes there are some guidelines for our stay but each is sensible and ensures a clean well maintained residence. We will be back.
Quiet, Clean and Beautiful Studio
Enjoyed our latest stay at the Middle Keei Road Studio. Very well maintained, quiet and so convenient to Honaunau Bay swimming and snorkeling. A special thank you for the wonderful fresh fruit. We always enjoy our stay and greatly appreciate having such a special place to visit and relax. Thanks again.
Great comfortable place. I found it to be quiet with a terrific view and lanai with lots of open land in front. It has a table area perfect for my computer and a little work. I really enjoyed staying there last summer and I'll be back soon. If you love mangoes, there are unlimited ones in season.
We very much enjoyed our one month stay at the Middle Keei Road studio. It is just as described, and we loved the large lanai area with beautiful ocean view. The studio was very comfortable, quiet and clean, and the full-size refrigerator was a real bonus as we cooked almost all of our meals there. We liked it so much, in fact, that we are returning for a another stay!

5 times at the studio
Another great stay at the studio. 7 weeks this time and 5 years running. The owner is always upgrading, very clean, roomy for a studio just perfect for a couple. This property is very relaxing due to its location. No traffic noise ( up a private drive) no tourists, a great view toward the ocean, and beautiful grounds. Looking forward to returning. ALOHA
Great Stay in Lovely Studo
This is our second stay in the Middle Keei Rd. studio. A great location in Honaunau, especially if you want to escape the maddening crowds in Kailua and points north. Close to shopping and ocean activities and the famed Painted Church Road. For the independent traveler it is a great fit. Now, if we could just find a place to buy we would be there all the time!
Mahalo John in Santa Cruz for your kind and thoughtful Reviews. I am looking forward to seeing you again for your next visit in December. You are smart to take advantage of my 14 day Specials and, to shop early for great air fares and use of miles!
It is a pleasure having the two of you here.
A lanai to enjoy the tropical breezes with an expansive coastline view. A convenience store 1/2 mile away. Small take out places 1/2 mile away. (BBQ, FishNCihips, Poke and local fresh fish delicacies.) Close to The City of Refuge National Park, "Two Steps" and Ho'okena beach as well as Kealakekua Bay. Many coffee farms in the area to sample their 100% Kona coffee. Grocery store, Post Office and restaurants within an 8 minute drive.
