Recent Puako reviews

  • local beachy charm

    "This is a wonderful, quaint little spot. It has everything you need from kitchen to beach chairs. Nicely furnished in comfortable, plantation style furnishings. Close to all the beaches and a corner market. Sea turtles everywhere. The trade winds cooled us on the deck, days end and serenaded by the many birds heralding the day."

  • Exceptional!!!

    "4 friends and I stayed for a week and absolutely loved the house. Within a few minutes of arrival whales greeted us by breaching just off the reef. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and everything else you could need. We grilled fresh fish outside on the weber almost every night and ate outside on the table on the lanai. We snorkeled for hours off our own beach, seeing dozens of turtles and tons of fish. The water is warm, calm and shallow for swimming. Snorkeling out over the reef has to be done carefully. Kalia was very helpful throughout the rental process. The bedrooms are separated from the bedrooms by a breezeway which is convenient. The house is very tastefully decorated. Two bedrooms face the ocean directly, a master bedroom and smaller bedroom. I loved the middle bedroom behind the two front bedrooms with its outdoor shower. there is a cute general just down the road. As an added bonus on our last night a mother turtle came onto our beach, laid her eggs during the night, covered them with sand then left early the next morning. Whoever stays here in a month should look for baby turtles climbing back toward the water. A memorable stay!!!"

  • Great Location. Neat & Clean Condo

    "Our stay on the Big Island was our favorite part of our Hawaii vacation. Puako is off the beaten path which is what we were looking for. The snorkeling at the end of the road was the best we experienced anywhere. The beach access just across the road from the condo had turtles in abundance. We did travel around the Big Island and the location is a reasonable drive to popular attractions. The front bedrooms could use a little more A/C airflow, but the fan provided helped with that."

  • Blue Dragon Beach Bungalow - what a wonderful home!

    "A very comfortable home and property. Nicely stocked kitchen, very private, quiet and right on the water - perfect for what we wanted to do - which was to unwind, relax and watch the whales and the turtles. Thanks - we will be back!"
