"We spent a week with 3 adults and 2 teenage boys. The bungalow has a rustic but cool feel to it. The island has been experiencing high surf and has remodeled the beach. It is more rocky but its's easy access for kayaks and paddle boards. We planned on snorkeling but with the churned up waters we did a lot more kayaking and body boarding. There were many experienced surfers right out our door. We were thoroughly entertained. On calmer days we were able to kayak out far and get a close up of migrating whales and manta rays. Because of the close proximity of the ocean and rocky cliffs and high surf the noise was unbelievable at night, the bedroom windows on the ocean side do not have shutters to dull the noise. I do recommend considering this for future renters. The teen age boys had a trip of a life time. The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking. Leilani the property manager was very helpful and we rented kayaks and paddle boards from the company she suggested. They were very reliable and easy to contact. We plan to go back next year."

"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"

"We have been coming to Puako regularly since 1989 and have normally taken a beach front house but the condos are an excellent relatively inexpensive alternative for a longer stay.The condo is well furnished and has everything you need including snorkel gear. Only a few minutes to the beach and the swimming pool is excellent. The condo gardens and facilities are very well maintained and I am happy to recommend this rental.2 Papayas staff very helpful."

"Just spent 10 wonderful days with my wife, children, their girlfriends and fiancé. All 10 of us had a blast and really enjoyed ourselves. The Hula Moon home is spectacular with a great kitchen (everything you need), we cooked great dinners almost every night. The outside terrace is absolutely amazing, every night at dinner we had beautiful sunsets, turtles sleeping on the rocks, and the amazing ocean views/sounds. We played card games on the terrace with the family many of the nights. Their barbecue rocks!!!!
The owners are wonderful to work with, you can see their "pride of ownership" will all the organization and detail of the home. Niki, was so helpful with all of our (on-site) needs and she provided us with great places to visit in the near by area and the island as well You have to take the local boat tour from KC and swim (in the ocean) with the dolphins and turtles (numerous pods of dolphins), great go-pro pictures, it was fantastic!!!
The pool was outstanding and a great place to visit with your family during the warm days & evenings. They've everything you need to visit one of the top 100 beaches in the world just a short 5 minute drive. We also enjoyed the outdoor (covered/private) downstairs room showers and the privacy (location) of the home. I've stayed in many rental homes and resort hotels and usually the beds are uncomfortable. NOT here, the beds are so comfortable. Being put to sleep each night while listening to the ocean waves was so relaxing. It did get warm upstairs, but the fans were very helpful to keep the air moving.
If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay with family or friends that have all the amenities then the Hula Moon is the place for you! I am so glad that I stayed here with my family..............thank you so much for a memorable vacation experience!.....Mike"
