  • Wonderful Vacation Home

    "We had a great time at this condo. There was plenty of room for 6 adults. The condo was clean and well-kept. Would be happy to recommend this location to family and friends. The waether was a little warm at night but the property manager brought fans to help cool the unit. There were many things to do both locally - the beach was just a few minutes walk - as well as many activities on the island. We could easily have stayed for two weeks."

  • My Favorite Place in the World.....

    "Full Disclosure..........I've known the owners almost all my life and have stayed at 82 many times. So, can I give a fair review? I think so. If I had one more trip in me before getting too old to travel it would be here. Why? A lot of reasons, but basically, location, location, location. The other reviews are all 5 stars and give many of the reasons why, all of which I agree with. It is always a joy to walk over the bridge across the pond behind the house and see one of the most majestic views you can imagine. You are literally one step away from what is essentially a private sandy beach. It's not private of course but, it is far away from the public beaches so there are no crowds of tourists. The only people you generally see are a few of the people staying in nearby homes and they are just walking by and not sitting down on your beach. From the big deck you step onto the beach where there are several coconut trees to provide shade, Adirondack chairs where you spend a lot of time enjoying the gorgeous weather, the awesome scenery and beautiful sunsets. Then there are the Green Turtles, lots of them laying around in the shallows feeding or sleeping. They have pretty much lost their fear of humans so you can get quite close to take great pictures. If you are lucky you can find yourself swimming along with them in the deeper water. It's awesome. Oh, then there are the Whales. Literally every day during the winter months the Whales can be seen swimming back and forth not far offshore. They often breach and trust me, that is spectacular and I have the pictures to prove it. There have been nights when it is quiet and the wind is not blowing and you can hear the Whales as they come out of the water and splash back down. Amazing to listen to. At night as you are lying in bed drifting off to sleep the sound of the waves gently rolling across the reef is something you won't find in many places because you are so close to the beach. So, all that being said, 82 is not for everyone. It is a small, old and rustic essentially one room house. There is a kitchen/living room, one full bath, one half bath and two bedrooms separated by the large bathroom, which are more alcoves than separate rooms so privacy is limited. Then there is a large covered deck and one step to the beach. Kitchen facilities are adequate. It works great for a family or two couples (especially if you are really good friends)."

  • Perfect Hawaii Vacation

    "I've stayed at most of the luxury hotels on the Kohala coast (Mauna Kea, Hapuna Prince, Fairmont Orchid, Four Seasons Hualalai, Kona Village Resort back in the day) but my favorite vacation is renting a house in Puako. This four-bedroom home was not super luxurious, but was nearly perfect in every way for my group of four adults - It feels secluded. You have your own private beach. There are whales and snorkeling and birding right out the door. It's easy to take a great bike ride or run or walk or hike right from the house. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are staples in the cupboards and refrigerator. A new outdoor grill was perfect for cooking the freshest fish from the nearby Fish House in Kawaihae. The furniture for sitting in the living room or on the porch is beyond comfortable. The manager, Kalia, is very accommodating; she's there when you need her and stays out of your way when you don't. I really cannot say enough good about this house. I'd rent it again in an instant."

  • 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."
