Recent Puako reviews

  • Greatest base for accomplishing many things

    "Let's face it, the Big Island is a big big island...so there's really no central spot that is convenient everything. But if anything is close to that, I recommend Puako and this condo in particular. The luxury resorts are nearby - and that's where the rich people in our party stayed so we could still be 'close' - the drives most other destinations were all on the order of an hour or so, and that covers from Mauna Kea summit to Waipio Valley to Pololu Beach to Hilo and botanical gardens. Arrangements for this condo could not have been easier and we're handled ny the owners with promptness and care. The 3 rooms were all quite comfortable and there was an abundance of things already in the condo so all one really needed was food and a good attitude. Having the convenience of a market next door is great (closes at 7p though). We really appreciated the access to a string of beaches on the Puako Road as well. I was told Neil Young lives down there somewhere, too. I give this a top recommendation!"

  • Three Weeks At The Whales Tail

    "Nice, relatively secluded, location. Good swimming, snorkeling and views of the Humpback migration to Alaska. Well equipped house and kitchen, and nicely furnished. Easy access to Puako General Store. The road noise, especially early in the morning, is truly annoying."

  • Dream family vacation

    "We spent 10 days at Beach Banyan property - wonderful! House has everything you can think of including a natural alarm clock birds in the beautiful Banyan tree, waves and ocean breezes. Kitchen was well stocked, 3 bathrooms and sleeping arrangements worked great. Beautiful grounds, with lots of seating choices, turtles to watch and snorkel with. We used the barbeque several times and ate in. Looking forward to going back next year or the year after and we will definitely stay here. Reasonable drive time to other activities. Property was clean, a maintenance item came up while we were there and it was taken care of the next day. If you want to stay in a house in Hawaii, right on the water this property is a great option."

  • Thanks again!

    "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. Thanks again, Clint and family"
