“Cozy room in the heart of Hilo”

This studio was in the best location that made it easy to access stores, restaurants and waterfalls. The studio had everything you need minus a kitchen. There was also snorkeling and beach supplies you could use. The backyard was beautiful with a nice view. Even though the room was next to Justina's house it still felt very private and we had our own parking spot. I loved it here and I can't wait to back.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed June 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Clean, safe and comfortable studio. Conveniently located "home base" for my 3+ week stay in Hilo. Peaceful back yard and use of assorted beach equipment was a plus! Studio was well equipped and fresh linen was provided as needed. Wi-Fi access on TV allowed music and movies through Pandora and Netflix in addition to nice mix of DVD's provided in studio. Complimentary Kona coffee, assorted teas, paper goods and plastic cutlery made breakfast easy and quick. Especially enjoyed the uphill walk to the park and tennis courts. Note: don't forget your umbrella :)

Enjoyed my stay. Very clean, comfortable, nice atmosphere, easy access into the place. Nice neighborhood. Close to Hilo town. Parking was easy. I would highly recommend this place to my family and friends should they visit the island of Hawaii. Hope to be able to visit and stay here again.

“Nice and Relaxing”
Reviewed February 21, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

February, 2015 - - We really enjoyed our four days at the Kumukoa Studio. What a great place to stay while in the Hilo area. The Studio is just right for a single or a couple.

The studio was offered a warm and inviting haven. The home, garden and view were just beautiful. Justina, her o`hana and pets made us feel like we were part of the family. We would definately stay here again.
