"This was our third stay at this incredible and unique property. There is nowhere else on the islands like it. The ocean-front surroundings are jaw-dropping. Gorgeous sunsets, sunrises, fantastic views up and down the coast (and even of Maui sometimes). Beach 69 (shady and great snorkeling) and Hapuna (sun, surf, soft sand and facilities) are a short drive away. The snorkeling right on the property is the best in all the islands, in our opinion. Extensive reef, marine life and corals, and you have it all to yourself every time. The accomodations are spacious, very clean and well-stocked. The beds are comfortable. There's plenty of towels, pots and pans, etc. The home is charming! "Vintage" is the word another reviewer used, and that sounds about right. Duke and Miriam are gracious hosts and an absolute pleasure to do business with. They make everything easy. They are around if you need anything, yet they give their guests total privacy. Best of all is the affordability. Nothing else Ocean-front in Puako can touch it. Puako itself is the perfect location for anyone wanting "authentic Hawaii", within a reasonable driving distance to shopping, restaurants and activities. Our family of 6 will definitely be back!"

"My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in the Studio for our annual trek to the Big Isle and we were treated to a wonderful experience. The studio is perfect for a couple and very well appointed. The view from the lanai of the bay is outstanding. The owner is VERY attentive and responds quickly (thanks Marie). We kayaked every morning and saw at least 30 turtles during our week and a baby manta! Aloha Living Services delivered a kayak and beach cruisers (thanks Kevin) the latter used to cruise PB drive and get acquainted with the neighbors! A fabulous week at an awesome location!"

"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"

"This house was so beautiful and right on the ocean with a white sandy beach. The bedrooms were fabulous. We each had our own private suites and the great room area was fun for everyone. This house is not only beautifully designed in an island style but it came equipped with absolutely everything we needed. The gourmet kitchen was the best! It had beautiful tropical wood floors and bamboo ceilings. My family loved the sunset views right from our back yard.
The management was great and so helpful, even set up massages for all of us right there in our lanai's.
We are definitely coming back!"
