Private & Quiet Kona Studio-Mins to Town & Beach!

Bedrooms Studio
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

*Please note the homeowner lives on site, in a completely separate unit, and may be present during your stay*

Vast ocean views, ever-changing sunsets, and starry nights await you at ‘Kona Pacific View,’ a bright and spacious studio apartment that sleeps 4. With no one above, below or next to the unit, the home is quiet and private. Enjoy breakfast with the birds or dinner in front of a mesmerizing sunset from the inviting lanai, before falling asleep in the king bed or queen-sized sleeper sofa!


Studio: King Bed, Queen Sleeper Sofa

‘Kona Pacific View’ is located at the end of a short street, edging on a Hawaiian dryland forest so there is no traffic. Stairs lead up to the apartment to provide a wider view of the forest below and the ocean beyond.

When you’re not out exploring the island, you can wander around the property, picking the seasonal fruit from the orchard.

If you're in the mood for some evening eats, prepare an island snack or meal in the well-equipped kitchenette to share at the glass-topped dining table set for 4. When you're ready to unwind, grab a seat on the comfortable couch in the living area in front of the cable TV. Ocean views from the couch make this seating area relaxing.

Your dreams of a tropical paradise come true as you enjoy the king-sized bed adjacent to the living area. Up to 2 adult travelers or 3 kids can enjoy a peaceful night's sleep on the queen sleeper sofa.

Wash off with a refreshing rinse in the full bathroom that offers a shower/tub combo and with a movable shower head. Wake up to the sounds of morning birds as you enjoy your breakfast with views looking out to the Hawaiian Dryland Forest and ocean beyond.


Although the feeling here is rural, the home is just minutes from town and the beaches. Situated on the north side of Kona, you won’t have to fight the traffic in town to reach the best beaches. Snorkel gear and boogie boards are available, as well as beach towels, chairs, mats, an umbrella and toys for the children.

Kona isn’t just another day at the beach. There are state and national parks where you can learn about the early Hawaiians, how they grew and raised all their food, and how they took care of the land.

The home is close to the “Saddle Road,” which gets you over to the east side of the island and Hilo. Not to be missed is the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Gardens.

If you explore the north part of the island, you can check out small towns along the way, as well as Waipio Valley, which has the state’s highest waterfall.

There are many books and brochures in the apartment to help direct you to whichever beaches, hikes, ocean sports, parks or areas you would like to explore.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 6 nights. It was a home away from home. We especially enjoyed Judy. She lent us her local discount card (that we used several times at Blazin Steaks!), shared her her home-baked bread and fruits from the garden, and made us sorbet! The condo was clean and quiet. We parked in the garage underneath the condo. The garage had all of the supplies you needed, like a cooler, towels, chairs, etc. We will definitely stay here again!

Very positive experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with this rental choice and give our positive recommendation. There were 2 of us, so the rental size and amenities were what we were looking for. We were both sightseeing and doing outdoorsy activities, so the close-to-Kona location worked well. The owner was really nice and responsive, including early check-in and late check-out to match with our flight schedule. She did a good job with detailing the description and photos on this site, as it was what was described, so it met our expectations.

Kona Pacific View: everything you need

  • 4 of 5

Let me explain the 4-star (vs. 5-star) rating. Our experience here was very good, I just don't rate many things as 'excellent.' The house was great for us, and we'd stay here again. ?

We stayed at this house for five weeks. (I could have stayed longer.) The home is a small free-standing unit above the ground-level garage. It is about 700 to 800 square feet including the lanai. The main room is “L” shaped and contains a king-sized bed, TV and sitting area and kitchen/dining area, plus the full bathroom. There is a propane BBQ on the lanai. The owner supplies linen and towels and there is a washer and drier in the garage. (We were there for five weeks, so naturally had laundry to do.)

• The house is as advertised and contains all you need to live there for a few days or weeks. (You will have to plan your meals as the only way to [say] boil two pots at the same time is using the induction plate and the burner on the BBQ .. no problem.)

• The house on the edge of a dryland forest reserve and at the end of street to it is quiet (except early morning birds that were great.)

• The house is about 1,200 feet above sea level and it cools down in evenings and makes for great sleeping.

• The location was good for us. It is ten minutes to Costco and about 12 or 14 minutes to the KTA grocery store and WalMart. (Avoid Safeway unless you win the expensive!!)

• There are many shoreline access points, state parks and beach areas 15 to 30 minutes away, and many more farther away. You can be at a whale-watching point or see green sea turtles or spinner dolphins (if you are lucky) all within less than a 30-minute drive. (The best turtle areas is only about 15 minutes away at the historical park by the Kona marina.)

• We stayed south of Kailua-Kona last year and much prefer the Kona Pacific View location.

• It is an easy drive up to scenic Waimea, or northeast, over to Hilo…where it rains a lot.

• The drive to Kilauea volcano is about 2.5 hours…more if you stop along the way. It is slightly farther going the south route. For a day trip to the volcano, you can head south on the west side and come home heading north up the east side through Hilo and back via the Saddle Road…which is a good road despite what some older travel books has been upgraded.)

I was blessed to stay at the Kona Pacific View guest house for ten days. the views from the Guest House are fabulous: morning sun coloring with shades of pink the puffy clouds above the Pacific Ocean and the evening sun set brilliantly coloring the sky over the ocean. The proprietor of this guest house is knowledgeable about the island and provides guests with every possible link to sight seeing, points of interest, beaches, restaurants, local lore, and also all sorts of beach needs. This guest house is immaculately clean, bedding of the highest quality, abundant, thick towels, bathrobes, the kitchen has every cooking utensil needed and is fully equipped for preparing any meal It also provides an eat in kitchen, a fabulous outside grill and eating table .and chairs. The lanai is very private and quiet. Perhaps a visitor to Kona Pacific will be treated to fabulous bread and garden produce; truly a private oasis!

Amazing....great find

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4-night stay at Judy's Kona Pacific View. The place is amazing, and you'll see that the minute you drive into the driveway and go up to your unit. It was a pleasure to meet Judy. She made us feel at home and her hospitality was outstanding. The breads she baked for us were a plus as well as the fruits she gave to us from her garden. The views from our lanai were beautiful. Unfortunately, we were never there to see the sunset from there, but I can just imagine them being beautiful. The apt was very large compared to other places I stayed in Hawaii. We had a garage below the unit to store the car, even though the area is very safe. She even had coolers (that we used), boogie boards, mask & snorkels (all for your use). The bathroom was also large with plenty of towels for us. The bed was very large and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you needed to cook, but we never really used it. We went out to dinner to places that Judy recommended, and the discount card that she let us use provided discounts at some of those restaurants. The unit did not have a/c, which was a concern of mine, but truly you are so high up the mountain that you don't need it. The weather was just perfect. The location is great; it is very close to the airport (only 10-15 minutes away) and to the center of town as well. We will definitely be staying at Judy's place on our next visit to the Big Island of Hawaii. Mahalo, Judy....

Breathtaking and Relaxing...Home Away From Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel often and have stayed in wonderful hotels, homes, etc. but by far Judy's tops the list! From the moment we pulled in the drive we knew we had made the best choice. Judy greeted us with kindness, a warm smile and the most delicious homemade bread. She provided us with great tips for things to do and places to go and had a wealth of information (brochures, maps, etc.) in the studio for us to look at on our leisure. The studio was so clean and comfortable!!! The pictures on the website show it perfectly. She had every appliance we could ever want and provided us fresh fruit from her grove daily. It was nice to be able to make some meals at home and enjoy sitting on the deck watching the sun set. She provided picnic and beach supplies which we used daily. It was so fun to explore the island and play in the ocean by day and then come home to the cool and comfortable studio at night. It was so calm and peaceful! Each morning we woke to the cool island breeze and beautiful sounds of the native birds. We saw the wild turkeys in the yard often and even heard and saw the wild pigs a couple nights sneaking in to steal Judy's prized veggies and fruit.

Judy is a delight! We wish we could pack her and her home up for every vacation we take because they both were perfect! She is a gracious host with a wonderful sense of humor and charm. We made a new friend for life and look forward to our next visit!
