"We loved everything about our week long stay here! Dennis is a pleasure to work with and everything in the description and pictures is exactly accurate. We had 4 adults and 4 kids staying and everyone had a blast. Loved the location of the property also."

"This super nice and clean condo fit the bill perfectly for us. We loved the layout and how nicely maintained and new everything was. We especially enjoyed the Built-in BBQ on the Lanai, which is very convenient and high quality. Nice view from the Lanai as well, including sunsets. Very convenient as well to the King's Shops, Queen's Marketplace, A-Bay Beach, Marriott, etc. Very convenient to drive to Mauna Lani, Mauna Kea, Waimea, Hawi, and even over the Saddle Road to the other side of the island as well. I agree with an earlier review about how nice and responsive the owners are. I sent a note with a couple questions and heard right back... Definitely pride of ownership. We look forward to going back... Thanks!"

Wonderful base to explore the northwest coast of the Big Island
"The Puako area is very special, has some of the best resorts because it has some of the best beaches, and you can easily get to them all from this great apartment! There's a small beach across the street, but some of the best resort beaches are a 20 minute walk down a trail along the water. Others are a short drive to get some variety.
Peg and Bud are wonderful hosts, and they have provided plenty of written information and books in the apartment that give the inside information on the best things to see and do in the area. The upstairs apartment is light and sunny, with all that you need in the kitchen, a great screened in reading/sitting area, and spacious living room and bedroom. Outside there's a gas grill that we used every night to barbecue fish from the local markets. We loved the outdoor shower for getting off the salt and sand before going into the apartment. We used the blender to make great drinks from the fruits we got at the farmers' markets. You're in a neighborhood so there's a bit of noise in the morning when the neighbors head off to work, but in general this location is off the beaten path and very quiet.
There's a small general store 5 minutes away, and a large grocery story about 15 minutes away. We hit many of the farmer's markets, particularly up in Waimea which is only about a 20 min. drive. There's a great fish market and trailer serving fresh fish lunches about 10 min. away. There are beach bikes, chairs, boogie boards, towels etc. to use during your stay so all you have to do is show up!
We also loved their cat, whom we fed when Peg and Bud had to leave for a few days.
From here we went on for about a week to see the volcano erupt and checked out the beaches, etc. around Kona and south. But Puako was by far the most restful, fun place to be, and this apartment couldn't have been a better place to stay."

"This was our second time renting this townhouse. Everything was provided (except food of course). The pool and grill were a few feet away. The townhouse was clean. We didn't have to drive somewhere else to pick up keys. Mr Paul provided us with codes to gate and lock box located at townhouse. One suggestion we have is that the beach towels be replaced, get a pizza cutter, and provide a beach umbrella or pop up shade. Otherwise, everything was great. Definitely returning if the townhouse is available next year."
