  • kayaking with whales

    "We spent a week with 3 adults and 2 teenage boys. The bungalow has a rustic but cool feel to it. The island has been experiencing high surf and has remodeled the beach. It is more rocky but its's easy access for kayaks and paddle boards. We planned on snorkeling but with the churned up waters we did a lot more kayaking and body boarding. There were many experienced surfers right out our door. We were thoroughly entertained. On calmer days we were able to kayak out far and get a close up of migrating whales and manta rays. Because of the close proximity of the ocean and rocky cliffs and high surf the noise was unbelievable at night, the bedroom windows on the ocean side do not have shutters to dull the noise. I do recommend considering this for future renters. The teen age boys had a trip of a life time. The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking. Leilani the property manager was very helpful and we rented kayaks and paddle boards from the company she suggested. They were very reliable and easy to contact. We plan to go back next year."

  • More beautiful than the pictures!

    "This house was so beautiful and right on the ocean with a white sandy beach. The bedrooms were fabulous. We each had our own private suites and the great room area was fun for everyone. This house is not only beautifully designed in an island style but it came equipped with absolutely everything we needed. The gourmet kitchen was the best! It had beautiful tropical wood floors and bamboo ceilings. My family loved the sunset views right from our back yard. The management was great and so helpful, even set up massages for all of us right there in our lanai's. We are definitely coming back!"

  • 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!"

  • Incredibly clean cottage in Puako

    "This little cottage was the cleanest, best equipped VRBO rental we have ever been in. The cottage is a labor of love for the owners and it shows in all the details. The location in Puako can't be beat. It is perfect for 2 people who like to cook the local fish at home and enjoy the local beaches without the crowds. The water access is directly across the street where we saw multiple turtles and other "wildlife" every time we wandered over. The only drawback is that there was quite a bit of traffic noise, even though the cottage is on a dead end street with no business and no condos. But, there was no traffic at night and it was wonderfully quiet. We have stayed at many VRBO places and this is one we would definitely return to."
