Recent Ka'u District reviews

  • Gorgeous house with very private and quiet location!

    "We stayed here from May25, 2014 until June 30, 2014 while we were looking for a long term rental, and thoroughly enjoyed this home. It is so beautiful and we especially loved the kitchen, the vaulted wood beam ceilings, and glass door stand up showers. Very nice breeze throughout the day and night with the windows open. Had everything we needed and we were very comfortable there. Raul was easy to work with and very hospitable to us and made it an easy stay. If you want to explore the south part of the island, then this is the place to be. It is on the south tip and you can go east or west to Hilo or Kona. It is near South Point green sand beaches which is awesome. Volcano National Park isn't too far either. Ka'u has the macadamia nut and Ka'u coffee tasting that is pretty cool too. There is a pretty cool view of the ocean on clear days so you still feel and remember that you are in Hawaii. Huge lanai that is comfortable and keeps you dry when it is raining. We used the yoga mats and exercised on the lanai everyday with 5 of us, so it is very big! Thanks again Raul for allowing us to stay in your home and we hope others will find this review useful as well. Semper Fi brother and God bless!"

  • What a great place!!!!

    "Having never rented a house on vacation before, we didn't know what to expect. We were extremely glad we decided to give it a try. The rental process was straight forward. Lizzy, the property manager was great and provided us with tips and info and was always available. The house has everything you could want and more. Our parents were travelling with us. They are both in their 80's and physically challenged, so finding a place that was easily accessible for them was not easy. We are happy to say that the house was perfect for them, too. Don't hesitate to rent this if you are looking for a great place to spend time on the big island."

  • Spacious house in a quiet area

    "This house is in a little neighborhood about 40 minutes from the National Park. There is so much room that, while we had 3, we were thinking we could have added another family and been comfortable. There are a number of activities within minutes (South Point, coffee mill, lava tube, etc.) If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, this is it."

  • Enjoyable cottage, but can be rustic.

    "This is a unique house. There are a lot of pluses, but also a few rough edges. I want to give a straight forward review to make sure future renters have clear expectations. First of all, the house is very remotely located. We found the solitude to be quite enjoyable. It is about 30-45 minutes away from the Volcanos National Park. There nearest small town, Pahala, is about 5-7 minute drive. The town has limited services. It's a very relaxing and very quiet area. However, because of the remote location, there will be little to no cell phone service. The owner provides internet wi-fi. The area tends to get light rain. The elevation of the area is 2000+ feet, so the days in mid-January were very nice and could get a little hot. Because of the elevation, the nights can get very crisp, around 50-60 degrees. The house has an "open air" floor plan, so it does not have central air or heat and is not well insulated, so bring some warm clothes…it will be chilly! Because of the lack of insulation, we found a lot of spiders throughout the house. Keep in mind there is only one small bathroom for all five bedrooms and the only shower is the outdoor shower. The outdoor shower has a romantic flair to it, but by the end of our stay, we were longing for a traditional bathroom. The grounds are very beautiful and peaceful, only one or two cars passed the house during our 4-day stay. We did not meet the owner, but she was congenial over the phone. As another reviewer mentioned, we also had a late night trespasser that left us wondering who could have visited during the middle of the night. With that said, the house has some very charming and old-fashioned traits about it and wouldn't dissuade future renters from staying, just keep in mind it is a bit rustic."

Punaluu Travel Tips

Stay in Punaluu Beach Rentals for Your Black Sand Beach Vacation

Are you ready for something new instead of sand so white it reminds you of sugar? Trade it in for the glory of black sand at Punaluu Beach on the Big Island of Hawaii in the Hawaiian Islands. Punaluu beach rentals nestled among coconut trees make for unique experiences in the midst of the world’s ideal vacation spot.

Quiet and Relaxation Await You in Punaluu Beach Rentals

Because Punaluu Big Island lodging is tucked away from the most frequented Hawaiian tourist destinations, it offers a serenity you will appreciate to no end. Ka’u District vacation rentals are geared for family time or couples who want to get away from it all. Enjoy yourselves without the clutter of a crowd of people trying to take your spot on the black sand beach, and simply enjoy the surrounding views or relax in the shade.

Lovely Punaluu Big Island Lodging

The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is just a few minutes away from Ka’u District vacation rentals. This state park is open 24 hours a day all year long so whenever the mood strikes you, set out from your Punaluu Big Island lodging and explore the park. A little closer to Punaluu beach rentals, you may find snorkeling over the rich black sand an unusual and pleasant experience.

Make New Friends at Ka’u District Vacation Rentals

You’ll certainly make new human friends at all the Punaluu beach rentals, but keep your eyes open for sea turtles lounging on the sand near Punaluu Big Island lodging. Please keep your distance but do enjoy watching them as they take in a few rays alongside you. You never know what sort of opportunity will unfold when you stay in the exciting Ka’u District vacation rentals on your next Big Island vacation.
