“Cozy stay in Hilo”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My sister and I stayed in the Kumkoa Studio for 2 nights and were positively surprised upon arrival. The bed was large and comfortable and the room was equipped with all travel essentials from toiletries, to plastic cutlery and microwave internet, TV with Netflix. Justina was also extremely helpful and polite and the dedicated driveway on the side of the house allowed us to park and move in and out swiftly. The house is also located within 3 miles of the city centre with plenty of restaurants, souvenir shops and restaurants in the area. I would stay there again and most certainly recommend the place for any duo of travellers heading to Hilo.

“Good accomodation in convenient location”

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights during our holiday in Hawaii. The studio flat next to Justinas house is ideal for somewhere to stay while exloring the local area. The accomodation consists of a single bedroom and ensuite which were very clean and well maintained. There is a hard standing area for your car or you can park on the road outside. A fridge and microwave are in the room and there is a TV with a DVD player with a few DVDs, although the TV does not have access to television programmes. The flat is in a quiet residential area about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Hilo. On both nights we went to the Pineapples restaurant in town, which seemed to be the "in place" to go and where we had excellent meals. Volcano national park is about 30 miles away - 45 to 60 minutes drive each way. There are limited accomodation options in Hilo but this was fine for two nights and was excellent value so we would happily recommend it as a place to stay for 2 people.

“Great studio for a couple nights”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

This was a lovely little studio that was spotlessly clean :-) Lots of character and interesting pictures etc make it a nice homely place

However, it was a bit noisy for me - the neighbourhood was quiet but the frogs weren't! Also the fan was pretty useless so I think they need a better one for those days when it does get hot!

Location was great for a night or two to see Hilo and the waterfalls before heading to Volcano. Booking and contact were excellent and it is great value for money

Overall I'd definitely recommend this place for a short stay

The studio was great- as advertised and Justina was also very friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed sitting out in the evenings and looking at the stars and relaxing.
Would definitely recommend.
