"We really enjoyed our stay at this one-bedroom at beach 69. It has lots of wood, is well kept, well equipped and is in an awesome location. Just a short walk from the quiet end of the beach which has shade and great snorkling. Hapuna is a quick drive down the road and has nice waves for body boarding and is a great beach. While there we were able to explore the north of the island to see hawi and some great valley with a black sand beach. The tv is kind of small but we never turned it on so that was not an issue for us. Lots of beach equipment to use as well. We got married in front on the beach and it was a great spot for sunsets."

Wonderful base to explore the northwest coast of the Big Island
"The Puako area is very special, has some of the best resorts because it has some of the best beaches, and you can easily get to them all from this great apartment! There's a small beach across the street, but some of the best resort beaches are a 20 minute walk down a trail along the water. Others are a short drive to get some variety.
Peg and Bud are wonderful hosts, and they have provided plenty of written information and books in the apartment that give the inside information on the best things to see and do in the area. The upstairs apartment is light and sunny, with all that you need in the kitchen, a great screened in reading/sitting area, and spacious living room and bedroom. Outside there's a gas grill that we used every night to barbecue fish from the local markets. We loved the outdoor shower for getting off the salt and sand before going into the apartment. We used the blender to make great drinks from the fruits we got at the farmers' markets. You're in a neighborhood so there's a bit of noise in the morning when the neighbors head off to work, but in general this location is off the beaten path and very quiet.
There's a small general store 5 minutes away, and a large grocery story about 15 minutes away. We hit many of the farmer's markets, particularly up in Waimea which is only about a 20 min. drive. There's a great fish market and trailer serving fresh fish lunches about 10 min. away. There are beach bikes, chairs, boogie boards, towels etc. to use during your stay so all you have to do is show up!
We also loved their cat, whom we fed when Peg and Bud had to leave for a few days.
From here we went on for about a week to see the volcano erupt and checked out the beaches, etc. around Kona and south. But Puako was by far the most restful, fun place to be, and this apartment couldn't have been a better place to stay."

"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."
