  • Awesome location!

    "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!"

    "this was a fabulous cottage to rent. there were so many amenities that were available including bikes,boogie boards,snorkel gear, beach chairs. My favorite thing about this cottage was the privacy and the Mac nut driveway. I felt at home here."

  • Puako Time!

    "Our annual visit to the Big Island was even better this year thanks to our stay at this vintage beach front home. Nothing fancy, just everything you need to have a great time. Morning coffee and afternoon Mai Tai's in lounge chairs, peacefully watching the tide spray the lava flow that extends from the beach. Just a few minutes away from multiple beaches and 10 minutes from the dive shop - Kohala Divers (our favorite). The owners of the home are very kind, helpful and giving. They live on the property as well, but you'd never know it - they give you your space. It's a great place to party! We can't wait to go back!!"

Puako Travel Tips

Puako Vacation Rentals: A Private Paradise

Hidden on the northern curl of Hawaii, framed to ocean views and open skies, is Puako. This tiny village (its population rests not quite at 500) seems an uncommon choice for family thrills. It's secluded, kept along the tropic jungles of the Big Island. It lacks the resort appeal of other towns and is not yet established as a tourist treat. But, in it, you can still experience adventure. It's a natural wonder. And, with Puako vacation rentals, you can now seek it out.

Puako Resort Rentals: Comfort and Joy

You remember it well: the days spent lamenting your vacation, hating every choice you made. A hotel was expensive and offered no space; a campground left you unsure. You thought you had exhausted all alternatives. You didn't, because Kohala Coast condos will allow you to find modern convenience without leaving the wild behind. You'll be settled within Puako and enjoying its many delights. It's a memory you'll forever keep.

Kohala Coast Condos: Exploration

You have no intention of simply letting the afternoons slip away. You wish to trek out from Puako resort rentals and embrace the scenery. That's now an easy thing. Find Sky Blue Canoe Adventures first. This family-owned canoeing operation will teach you all you need to know about conquering the waves, and then will send you out to do it. Dry off then with a day at Hapuna Beach and search for its coral reefs. Devote hours to hiking through Lapakah State Park, which offers carefully maintained fishing homes and Hawaiian traditions. And then let the Gathering of Kings, a celebration of dance and song, amaze you. The evening will end as wonderfully as the morning began.

Puako Vacation Rentals: Secluded and Stirring

You don't need crowds to prove perfection. You simply need Puako. Let Kohala Coast condos offer the adventure and privacy you've been longing for.
