  • A Little Bit of Heaven

    "We learned about Beach Banyon from friends of the owners, so we were a bit biased from the start. But what we experienced was totally beyond all expectations, meaning near perfection. The position of the house under the commanding banyon tree was amazing. It was just two of us in the house, but six could be accommodated easily. Our days began taking our coffee down to the lava rocks and watching whales swim by. Then we searched the tidal pools counting turtles as they swam about. We walked endlessly up and down the lava beds, exploring all the nooks and crannies. We did venture out during the day, (Whale Watching, North Shore hikes, Volcanoes NP) but were reluctant to leave the setting to go out to dinner, so we loaded up on food (the Puako General Store is a gem) and ate at home. We wanted to soak up every moment of our time and the views to take home. The folks at Two Papayas we fabulous, always there if there was a need, but totally respectful of our privacy. We would return in a heartbeat, but for a longer stay, and maybe with grandkids! There's nothing not to love."

  • Wow- what a spectacular place!

    "We enjoyed our stay here THOROUGHLY! Complete relaxation with no worries or headaches...can't beat the ocean air and sound of the surf as you wake up. Puako is a very special place- somewhere you can leave all your troubles behind and just soak up the sun-kissed, salt-infused energy, and a calm you've never felt in your life. This house encompasses all of those things and also makes you feel at home, wherever home may be."

  • We will be back!!

    "We recently stayed at this adorable cottage with our two little ones. The location was perfect!!! Really close to some of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii!! Across the street we found some great little spots for the kids to wade and met a family of sun bathing turtles. The cottage was clean and beautifully decorated. The big grassy yard outside was perfect for the kids and the owners very thoughtfully left a box of toys for the kids that came in very handy. We had one of our best holidays and are already planning our next trip back!"

  • Our favorite home away from home...

    "We have returned to this amazing rental for the past five years & will continue to come at least once a year. This home is in the perfect location, FULLY appointed with everything that you would need, the bed is the most comfortable that I have ever slept in, the sound of the waves crashing are intoxicating, the grounds are completely private with outdoor shower & hammock, the furnishings are beautiful & the entire place is immaculate. The owners are amazing & so welcoming to us, you feel the real spirit of aloha here. I can't recommend this place enough. The only suggestion I would give is that they don't take credit cards. This is kind of a hassle, it would be nice if you could just call up & give your credit card for the deposit & then authorize them to debit your card when the balance is due. Definitely not a reason not to come but would be so much more convenient & far less of a hassle in this day & age."

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.
