  • Staying at the Tree House

    "We had a wonderful time during our week at the Tree House. Its perfectly sized for two people and one live-in gecko. I love the area and its so close to several beautiful beaches and it's a quite laid back neighborhood. Even though this was not the main house on the property we still had a view of the ocean and a big shady banyon tree and lovely breezes through the house. There was a couple renting the big house so we were not able to use the big yard, but the path to the beach was so close. We looked around the island for turtles but found the most encounters right on the beach outside our tree house. Amazing! We evens saw whales breaching from our beach, they were out a ways but still spectacular! I would highly recommend this to other renters. The birds sing early in the morning, so if you are not early risers suggest ear plugs unless you want to be up that early. Wish there was a little bit of the main yard allocated to the tree house, its the one thing that would have made this even more perfect! If we ever visit this island again, we will try to stay in the same place!! The folks handling the rental were excellent to work with too which made it smooth and easy. Highly recommend!"

  • Best Honu ever

    "My wife and I enjoyed the best vacation yet while staying in this cottage right on the beach. We have been to Hawaii 5 times and this accommodation tops the list. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, and were within walking distance of the general store. We had snorkeled all over the island and decided to finally snorkel in our backyard and for the first time encountered turtles. We really had diamonds in our backyard and did not know it. We would stay here again and again. Great neighborhood and wonderful and the cottage was perfect."

  • Greatest base for accomplishing many things

    "Let's face it, the Big Island is a big big island...so there's really no central spot that is convenient everything. But if anything is close to that, I recommend Puako and this condo in particular. The luxury resorts are nearby - and that's where the rich people in our party stayed so we could still be 'close' - the drives most other destinations were all on the order of an hour or so, and that covers from Mauna Kea summit to Waipio Valley to Pololu Beach to Hilo and botanical gardens. Arrangements for this condo could not have been easier and we're handled ny the owners with promptness and care. The 3 rooms were all quite comfortable and there was an abundance of things already in the condo so all one really needed was food and a good attitude. Having the convenience of a market next door is great (closes at 7p though). We really appreciated the access to a string of beaches on the Puako Road as well. I was told Neil Young lives down there somewhere, too. I give this a top recommendation!"

  • Wonderful house in the most private and quiet area

    "Nothing to add to the other wonderful reviews, except that Scott accommodated our every need and wish, including a high chair, and a ping pong table! Such a relaxing place to be, with no bustle of tourism."
