  • A most enchanting home...................

    "I had the good fortune to spend a few days at Hula Moon and I was blown away by how perfect this home is! First of all, everything is just top notch. The ocean front setting is enchanting and the design of the home is grand old island style but with a modern twist. The master suite and 3 guest suites are outfitted perfectlly. The baths are comodious with the 2 downstair suites encorporating grand outdoor showers. That was a favorite for me!! The sleeping quarters are spacious with fabulous views and decks for the 2 suites above and porches and beach access for the 2 downstairs suites. Everything is stocked and in place - ready for your every need. Beautifully appointed kitchen, dining and lounging inside and out, black bottomed pool for cooling off, so many places to just curl up and read a book. My daughter did not want to leave. We are definitely planning on coming back. Soon, I hope! By the way, I tried to press the 5th blue star above, but all of them lit up."

  • Completely Special As Advertised !

    "The house design and furnishings are tasteful and comfortable. You're immediately drawn in with it's open Hawaiian themed decor and incredible front exposure to Puako Bay. The views and proximity to all kinds of real vacation recreation can not be beat. My only hesitation in absolutely raving about this place is being able to book it again in the future. It's a real gem!"

  • Easy Family Spring Break Week

    "Our party of five (parents, two college kids, and one of their friends) stayed at this Puako condo for a fun spring break trip that didn't break the bank. The condo decor is island style without being kitschy and was very clean and comfortable. We did not use the AC and were comfortable with the sea breezes and the fans moving air through. For a group with different abilities and interests, the location is perfect. My husband and I liked to get up early while it was still cool and go for a walk or an early snorkel (the snorkelling at the end of Puako Beach Drive was amazing -- we saw turtles, a manta ray, and a multitude of varieties of coral and tropical fish). We would come back to the condo for breakfast and pack up a picnic lunch and head out to a sandy beach where the younger set could boogie board, etc. (Puako Bay is mostly lined with lava tide pools.) Hapuna, Beach 69 and Mauna Kea Beach all within 5-15 minutes drive. Beach towels, four folding beach chairs, a small cooler, four boogie boards, two beach hats were all provided by the condo, stored in the study. Sometimes we picked up sandwiches from the general store next door, which also had a used book exchange and good rental DVDs. One morning we walked along the beach trail that starts at the end of Puako Beach Drive and in fifteen minutes were eating breakfast at the outdoor restaurant at the Fairmount Orchid resort. The trail to the Petroglyphs is close by the same resort. One nonbeach day we drove to Waimea for lunch at Pau restaurant and then north along the Kohalo ridgeline and on to the end of the north shore road to hike down into the beautiful Eden-like Pohulu Valley. Shaved ice in Hawi on the way home along the coast. One evening we drove 10 minutes south to wander around the ancient Hawaiian fishponds on the Mauna Lani resort grounds and had a big splurge dinner at the Napua restaurant overlooking the beach there. A week sped by. We liked the condo option over staying at a fancy resort; it was more affordable, we could do our own cooking when we wanted to, and it felt more "real" to be in a small beach community. The large front bedroom with access to the lanai and ocean view is the best. The condo is delightful and we highly recommend it. We rented snorkel gear for the week from Snorkel Bob's at the Mauna Lani shopping area and did our main food shopping at the Foodland there; take the turn off Hwy 19 toward the Mauna Lani resort (the last turn before the Puako exit)."

  • Condo and location perfect

    "We spent two glorious weeks in this Puako condo. Very roomy, everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay, comfy beds, nice lanai with a beautiful view of ocean out front and the mountain behind, two pools a regular and wading pool. We even saw 5 wild turkeys out the back door. While the beach out front is not the best for swimming, good for kids though, it was great for seeing the turtles, looking in the tide pools and watching the sunsets. Beach 69, Hapuna and Mauna Kea just a short car trip up the road. We would have liked to snorkel the Puako reef but surf conditions were too rough and Beach 69 was only good on one of our days. Hapuna is a huge beach with good snorkelling on the north end and good boogie boarding but Mauna Kea was our favourite but you have to go early to get a parking spot from the hotel. The condo location was perfect for exploring the north end of the island and down to the many beaches south to the airport and the resort areas of Fairmont Orchid, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa. Loved it all."
