Recent Puako property reviews

  • Heaven!

    "I loved this house, and Leilani (Aloha Debbie, property managers), went above and beyond to make our vacation perfect. My 3 daughters and I arrived to find the house we had rented was not what we imagined. Leilani spoke with me briefly about what we wanted and moved us to this unforgettable house. We were as close to the ocean as one could imagine. Every view was blue water, and we spent every sunset on the porch overlooking the most beautiful scenery. Sea turtles really are everywhere! The house is perfectly designed to allow everyone some space, and the master bedroom was heavenly - I felt like I was camping next to the water, but I was sleeping in a lovely bed with beautiful green plants outside every window. It is uncluttered and simple which allows the ocean to become the centerpiece. Leilani was gracious and accommodating, and she made sure we were happily settled and had everything we needed. I can't thank her enough for her instantaneous response to my first phone call. I miss this house, our time there, and think of it often and hope to return soon. Thank you, Aloha Debbie and Leilani!"

  • Little paradise

    "We ( 2 adults and 1 child) enjoyed our time in Puako a lot. The cottage is very lovely and very well equiped, e.g. beach gear. Furthermore, Puako is a great location for snorking, swimming or watchung the sunset from Mauna Kea. Thanks again for sharing this beautiful home with us!"

  • Beautifully maintained place in great neighborhood

    "Wow! This is definitely the best equipped rental we have stayed in. There is only one unit down below and most of the unit is above garages so it is really quiet. The fixtures and furniture appear very new and up to date and are quite comfortable. I have never seen a kitchen so well stocked. Also loved having all the towels (both bath and beach), the folding chairs, boogie boards, etc. Laundry was downstairs and full sized machines were great. Even detergent was supplied. Used the backpack provided for our trips to the beach, of which there are many close by. Puako is pretty rocky but it was fun hanging out with the sea turtles. It is a nice, quiet residential neighborhood. Loved beach 69 and thought snorkeling there was good too. Having the Hawaii Revealed guide book was really helpful and the owners also provided lots of useful information. We were a bit hot being upstairs and not used to island humidity. The fans were mostly effective but we did need the wall ac unit in the master bedroom at night, especially if we were out of the house all day with the windows closed. I don't know if this was typical weather or if it was unusually hot that week. One tip: do not try to "rescue" the geckos by hand to take them outside. My daughter tried to do this and got bitten. The lizards in Arizona don't seem to do this. Everything else about the neighborhood was very friendly!"

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.
