Lovely getaway!
This place is excellent! i stayed here (in the bottom floor studio) mid september 2011. I am walking disabled, and while this studio is not specifically wheelchair accessible, with the owner's kind assistance, it was quite manageable. it's a very large studio, with an open floor plan, so worked quite well for a power scooter/wheelchair. i did bring my own small board to use as a ramp, and Bob (owner) supplied a piece of 2" x 4" to prop it up on, and it worked well to get in and out the one step into the sliding patio door. he was also kind enough to go out of his way and buy a shower seat to have there for me, so that was also not a problem. it's a beautiful home, altho very isolated. if you want a secluded getaway, this is it! Ocean View is south of Kona about 1 hour, so it was a kind of long drive to go back and forth if kona is where you want to be; but a very pretty drive. and while i did do that a few days of the week i stayed here, (had to leave Ocean View at 6am. to get to an 8am. dive boat in kona!) i also spent a couple of days going nowhere.. and had a very excellent and relaxing rest with a great pool ( a little chilly in overcast weather), an excellent hot tub, and a lovely view of the coast and ocean. be aware it is out in the middle of a lava field..... pretty much nothing there but houses dotting the lava here and there, but i really liked it! kind of a "desert" feel in the tropics of hawaii.. it's the last house on the last street of this subdivision, so it's a good 10 minute drive from the highway, and very isolated. and there's no phone, so be sure you have a cell phone. My AT&T worked fine there. Bob, the owner, was very kind to my many annoying calls (as a disabled traveler, i always to be very specific about stairs and access) as well as going out of his way to make it as accessible as possible, and granting me a few specific concessions to my disability. thanks bob! note to other wheelchair travelers.( there are 2 steps going up to the pool, and one more to the hot tub) there were no upstairs guests to share it with me when i was there, so i basically had this lovely little oasis totally to myself! it was very windy when i was there,and somewhat overcast a lot of the time, but that may be due to when i visited. I i highly recommend it for romantic getaways, and quiet "do not disturb" vacations.... if you want hustle and bustle and nightlife, you're at least an hour from that. pool clothing optional if you're alone!
