A truly marvelous oasis...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there for a little over a month. The studio was amazing. Tucked away on a corner of the property it was quiet, clean, modern and well appointed. Bed was super and the best I've ever slept on in a B&B. The small patio outside was perfect for relaxing or eating and overlooks the beautiful garden. Property location is close to all of the essentials. Shopping center with groceries, pizza, Chinese food, etc was 5 minutes away. Walmart for basic essentials was another 2 minutes further. Beaches and town were around a 10 minute drive and the Volcano was about 40 minutes away. Can't be beat for a stay in the Hilo area!

Thanks Diana for being such a gracious host.

Owner's Response: Ken was an ideal and fabulous guest; very low key, low maintenance, a wonderful conversationalist who was open, friendly, sweet and always a pleasure to have daily exchanges with. His needs were so minimal that he barely left any foot prints during his stay. He left my studio just as he found it; clean and orderly. I thoroughly enjoyed having him as a guest and would not hesitate welcoming him back anytime!

We truly enjoyed our stay here! Diana and Juan were very hospitable and made us feel right at home. Their accommodations made our trip much more convenient and enjoyable, from a full kitchen with a refrigerator to cook and store our own meals to providing a washer and dryer/clothesline so we could travel light. Not to mention they sent us on our way with a bag full of delicious homegrown mangoes! Definitely our first choice and recommendation for a place to stay on the big island!

Owner's Response: Martin and his lovely wife and sweet son were the most excellent guests anyone could have asked for. They were so considerate, quite and tidy. They never bother anyone, they came and go very quietly, and they left my studio in immaculate condition. I would highly recommend them to any hosts, and they are most definitely welcome back anytime and hope we get to host them again in the near future!

This cute little studio is on site with owner's property; close enough for any needed assistance yet secluded enough for needed privacy. Has ample parking, no additional cost to use laundry facility and detergents (high efficiency washer, (dryer optional), and cloth line under roof). Wifi available from studio lanai and from main sitting area (next to laundry site) where router is located and provides high speed access (for no extra cost).
True to the island's aloha spirit, I go 'all out' for my guests and so therefore stay flexible with check in time (as long as the studio is ready and available, I allow early check in and same goes for check out as well. I love my interactions with my guests and but I don't interfere with their time and activities but am always available for suggestions, recommendations, and anything else that comes up.
