"We rented this house for ourselves, our son and daughter in law and toddler. The location in Puako is perfect! We could swim between the rocks in a sandy section just down the beach, explore tide pools right in front, and snorkel with the numerous turtles without driving. Within driving range, a mere 5 minute drive away, are three beautiful and unique beaches -- Beach 69, Haupuna Beach, and Mauna Kai Beach (in front of the resort but open to public). Puako has a small general store, but nearby Waimea has everything else one could need, including a great brew pub -- the Big Island Brewhaus. Mostly, we enjoyed our location so much we were happy sitting on the sea wall enjoying the tropical breezes and incredible sunsets. The house is not new or fancy or remodeled, which we were fine with. There's a lot to be said for a beach bungalow! It was clean and comfortable and had most everything we needed including beach chairs, towels, etc. There is an ant issue in the kitchen which we were aware of from reading other reviews -- a very typical problem on the islands and not a big deal to us. The lawn area is perfect for a toddler and the sea wall was helpful as a border to the bay. We loved putting our chairs up on the sea wall and watching the turtles swim and come ashore each evening. We would definitely return and continue our explorations of the Big Island! Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

"Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week on the big island, staying at the Lalmillo house. The house is so close, in fact literally on, a beautiful sandy beach, and right on Waielea bay where we were able to snorkel, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, and play in the surf to our hearts content. The location truly makes this a unique location, as we were able to spend time on the beach, then run back to the house for lunch or naps, and then back to the beach when we felt like it. The sounds of birds and the waves were a wonderful backdrop when we were eating on the deck. Leilani was great and responsive in coordinating our stay and helping us plan our vacation. We would love to return.
Clint and family"

"We have enjoyed a wonderful extended stay at The Sure House. The unit was equipped with everything that one would need on vacation. The fridge with ice maker and water dispenser was a real plus. The furnishings are lovely with tropical themes and very comfortable. The extras including the large TV, DVD player, I Dock were a bonus on the rainy days we had. We used the deck all the time. It was wonderful, large and comfortable. The small fridge on the deck and the games including beach chairs and toys were all greatly appreciated. The sunsets were wonderful. The owners have included lots of very useful information to make the vacation amazing, including tours, dining and shopping information. We hope to go back one day. The location is on the golf course (we are golfers, nice to walk to course) but you will need a car to drive to the beaches. The beach at Waikoloa resort is probably a 15 minute drive. We really enjoyed the birdsong in the mornings and the wild turkeys meandering around the area were highly entertaining."

"This was our second time staying here. We stayed 5 years ago and the condo just keeps getting better. The furnishings, kitchen equipment, and the facilities are first rate. Location is perfect and views make you want to come back time after time. Thank you again, Brian.
Jay & Margaret"
