"My sister and me and our spouses spent a week here (my other two sisters and their spouses were nearby in another condo that was way more expensive but not any better). It was perfect and we would return in a heartbeat. We explored the whole island from here and it was an ideal place to return to each night. We snorkeled, we hiked, we swam, we went sight-seeing, enjoyed a zipline, went to the observatory visitor center, the volcano, the orchid center, the vanilla fields, the chocolate factory. And ate seafood almost every night. There was no downside to being here. And Joy was a great hostess; the place was just perfect for us - the wifi, the snorkeling and beach equipment, the kitchen for breakfast and dinners. Cannot adequately express how much we enjoyed this place."

"3 things to consider about this place:
1) Location of Mauna Lani Terraces - GREAT! One of the few lower density places that is oceanfront Hawaii. I want to find a similar place on Oahu (i.e., I like that island the best for stays > 1 week). Also, we mixed up the daily routine between snorkeling on the edge of the reef (swimming from Mauni Lani Hotel to Beach Club), Beach Club, Mauni Lani Hotel beach, Mauni Lani Hotel pool, Fairmont beach, Fairmont pool and a few driving destinations (e.g., Pololu, Waimea, Hapuna)
2) Location of this unit within Mauna Lani Terraces - IDEAL! The patio spills out onto the grass. As such, my kids flowed back and forth between the unit, patio and the grass. The pool is about 50 steps from our patio. Importantly, it's really quiet there (i.e., not obnoxious to our unit) and it's fenced (i.e., don't have to worry about kids wandering in without supervision). The beach (300 feet away?) is directly on the other side of the fishpond (80 feet away). So, you get the ocean breeze and view. Finally, the fishpond is bounded by lava rocks ... keeps toddlers out.
3) The unit - Pretty good. Pros - Has everything you need, good light and air (fans), well maintained and immaculately cleaned. Cons - I'm not a big fan of carpet on principal and especially in a beach location. The fixtures are a little dated but work fine. The master bed was a bit soft for my back. These, however, are minor issues."

"We spent two glorious weeks in this Puako condo. Very roomy, everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay, comfy beds, nice lanai with a beautiful view of ocean out front and the mountain behind, two pools a regular and wading pool. We even saw 5 wild turkeys out the back door. While the beach out front is not the best for swimming, good for kids though, it was great for seeing the turtles, looking in the tide pools and watching the sunsets. Beach 69, Hapuna and Mauna Kea just a short car trip up the road. We would have liked to snorkel the Puako reef but surf conditions were too rough and Beach 69 was only good on one of our days. Hapuna is a huge beach with good snorkelling on the north end and good boogie boarding but Mauna Kea was our favourite but you have to go early to get a parking spot from the hotel. The condo location was perfect for exploring the north end of the island and down to the many beaches south to the airport and the resort areas of Fairmont Orchid, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa. Loved it all."
