All studios are lockable and have private sleeping and bath areas

Except large studio with a shared bath with our onsite caretakers/ they do not leave anything in the bathroom and its lockable

Some of the differences are

The dolphin

Has a dolphin theme, hard wood floors, outdoor dish sink 1closet and a tube, a view

The whale

Has carpet, large dish sink in the bathroom, more windows, it has more sound near the parking area, as it has many windows and is near the parking area and above another unit, better view

Ocean studio

Is the largest and has a full kitchen and a lockable shared bathroom

Review for ocean room

  • 4 of 5

My family had been living on a farm on the north shore in Oahu and wanted to see the big island before we went back to the mainland. We had spotty internet so I couldn't access my room details but found John's number. We chatted and he said he could text me all the details! Great! He made the pull out bed before arrival for my boys so we didn't have to worry about that. He was very nice, and accommodating. He had basics for breakfast i.e. Some oatmeal, spices, oil, coffee and fresh papaya (from the property). He even let my 5 year old help him pick some fresh papayas! So fun! My only request would be to get comfy fluffy pillows but that's a personal preference. The place was in good condition and clean! I would recommend staying here to see the kona side of the island. Bonus from the deck on the second level you can see the ocean and its spectacular!! Happy travels!
