Recent Puako reviews

  • Best Honu ever

    "My wife and I enjoyed the best vacation yet while staying in this cottage right on the beach. We have been to Hawaii 5 times and this accommodation tops the list. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, and were within walking distance of the general store. We had snorkeled all over the island and decided to finally snorkel in our backyard and for the first time encountered turtles. We really had diamonds in our backyard and did not know it. We would stay here again and again. Great neighborhood and wonderful and the cottage was perfect."

  • What a place!!

    "My family and I just recently returned from an absolutely wonderful trip to Big Island, especially due to this house. We had so much fun just being in this house. My favorites times were on the lanai in the mornings watching for whales w/my coffee and in the evening watching for whales w/my wine. Can it get any better? I cannot say enough good things about this house. It has everything you need in a beautiful setting. Each room and space is very tastefully furnished and fully equipped. It was so comfortable and relaxing just to be there. I highly recommend this house to others and I am looking forward to returning."

  • Lovely location & manager, house a bit tired

    "This is our second stay in the Kona side of this property. Still in love with the location, right on the water in Puako with turtles sunbathing on the rocks! It has a great 3 mile run to the surf spot & back, snorkeling if the weather allows, and a charming well-stocked general store an easy walk. Great rental company, always friendly & leave helpful info & tips. If you're concerned about privacy from the other condo, no worries - it's very thoughtfully screened & fenced so that you hardly notice that you have neighbors. The house itself is getting pretty tired in spots, definitely deteriorated from out last visit 2 years ago. The older bathroom is a bit grimey but the shower still has great hot water & great water pressure. The beds and sheets are soft & comfy (master is a good size, but the second bedroom is pretty tight - think Europe). The living room is average - furniture is worn and not too comfortable but has a great view of the water. The kitchen was our main complaint - it is sorely in need of an appliance & supply update. The dishwasher would not turn on (front panel was also missing), the little mini-range was probably just above the level of piece-of-junk brand new and now the temperature knob spins like the wheel-of-fortune leaving you guessing. The toaster burns one corner of your bread black and leaves the other corner raw. The knives cut about as well as a spoon & the silverware is pretty rusted. In short: if you're looking to spend very little time indoors, want to be on the water, and only care about the water pressure, the bed, and the view it's a perfect spot. If you're planning on spending any time lounging in the living room or cooking, look elsewhere."

  • Beautiful place, not a big resort community

    "This was our 1st trip to the Big Island and couldn't have chosen a better spot. The cottage is the perfect size for 2 people and had everything needed. We loved having the beach chairs etc. for the beach trips and couldn't think of anything we would have added to the kitchen utensils or supplies. The decor of the cottage was apprioate for its location and loved the linen sheets. The biggest plus besides the what was already mentioned above was the friendly neiborhood, away from the big resorts but close enough to go for dinner if you wanted. 2 Papayas level of service was great and we loved finding the 2 papayas in the frig to enjoy later. It was a wonderful 2 weeks"
