MY family and I had a memorable time at this Large & sunny studio! And it is quite large, much larger than I had imagined! Plenty of room for our family of 4! Upon arrival we were a little dissapointed at how run down the yard was, but did speak with the owner about it and since may have cleaned it up! But can't tell you enough how much fun we had with the personal pool & hot tub! We were lucky to not have anyone in the house above us for most of our stay, so we had the place to ourselves! The area is quite remote & quiet which was really nice, but there is also a grocery store, gas, hardware store and places to eat nearby. You are surounded by lava and wouldn't recommend venturing out in the neighborhood to far, do to some crazy protective dogs in the area. One nearly attacked me on a morning run and one broke it's chain and did try to attack our car! No joke! Even though it is a long drive to Hilo or Kona from Ocean View, we did enjoy being in the middle of the two. There is some really good snorkeling close by at Hookenna Beach and also fairly close to the Volcano National Park which is a must! Especially stop in at night to see the volcano glowing! Would definatley recommend this studio to friends & family & the owner is super helpful and accomidating to your needs! The only other thing I would mention is that if you want to use the hot tub, you are in charge paying for the propane to heat it everytime you use it!
