Recent Puako reviews

  • KPB from CA

    "This Puako updated and well furnished home was lovely for my husband our daughter and her boyfriend. Their bedroom was at opposite end of the house from ours. The house come with a well equipped kitchen as well as a generous supply of towels. Great ocean views with whales beyond and turtles and an eel just beyond the sea wall, wonderful lanai, comfy sofas, great TV, & outdoor shower. 2 Papayas met our every need. Only drawback: all doors are slatted for good airflow, but they do prevent privacy."

  • 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)."

  • First Class Top Notch Villa!!!

    "The Villa was first class all the way... Great location, tons of fun right outside the door with snorkel, scuba, stand up paddle board, kayaking, over 20 sea turtles just resting on the rocks and beaches outside. Some of the best beaches minutes away. Golf, Spas, etc... Rooms were all big and comfortable with beautiful bathrooms attached and ocean views everywhere. Kitchen was beautiful with Viking appliances and granite counters (warning -you are basically sharing a jungle like tropical setting with all that nature brings, so make sure you clean up or the ants will come out). Could have stayed forever, but reality called us home for now... We'll be back! Other info: Surprisingly, we had dive and snorkel boats mooring at three different buoys right outside the villa every day; we snorkeled and were surprised how great it was (you need water shoes to avoid spiny urchin stings to get out). We're also certified divers, so later we rented scuba equipment from a local shop and had some great shore dives right out front. The outside shower made rinse and clean up of gear simple. There wasn't much information on this before we left so this info should be helpful for future visitors. Only negative was they could really use soft water - or a dish washer with built in soft water like Miele or Bosch... The hard water had already done damage to the dishwasher’s plastic silverware holder so the silverware would fall through cracks and holes in the bottom. The place is only 2 years old and the dishwasher is already taking a beating because of the hard water (Viking isn't really known for their dishwashers anyway)... But other than that PERFECT!!!"

  • Like being in Paradise

    "We loved the property! It is well maintained and has everything you need or want. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. The only negative is the road to the property. It is very rough. The property is very private but close enough to activities of the island."
