Recent Puako reviews

  • Wonderful hidden gem in Puako!

    "Our two weeks in this 1-bedroom, 1-bath efficiency was fabulous! With all the amenities we look for in all our accommodations in Hawaii, within walking distance to awesome snorkeling, outdoor grilling, relaxing lanai (porch), quiet and comfortable surroundings, near farmers markets, washer and dryer and around $100/night....this rental checked all those boxes and more. The more was our fabulous hosts, Peg and Bud. A wealth of information, they provided many experiences (from where to snorkel to the best local restaurants) we would not have had, if we hadn't stayed in their rental. Sharing all their water toys, bicycles, outdoor shower, beach gear, chairs, coolers and much more they added so much value to our two weeks, we were ready to cancel our next rental in Kona so we could stay there, but alas, our final day arrived and we, unfortunately, had to leave. We shall be back!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Lovely location & manager, house a bit tired

    "This is our second stay in the Kona side of this property. Still in love with the location, right on the water in Puako with turtles sunbathing on the rocks! It has a great 3 mile run to the surf spot & back, snorkeling if the weather allows, and a charming well-stocked general store an easy walk. Great rental company, always friendly & leave helpful info & tips. If you're concerned about privacy from the other condo, no worries - it's very thoughtfully screened & fenced so that you hardly notice that you have neighbors. The house itself is getting pretty tired in spots, definitely deteriorated from out last visit 2 years ago. The older bathroom is a bit grimey but the shower still has great hot water & great water pressure. The beds and sheets are soft & comfy (master is a good size, but the second bedroom is pretty tight - think Europe). The living room is average - furniture is worn and not too comfortable but has a great view of the water. The kitchen was our main complaint - it is sorely in need of an appliance & supply update. The dishwasher would not turn on (front panel was also missing), the little mini-range was probably just above the level of piece-of-junk brand new and now the temperature knob spins like the wheel-of-fortune leaving you guessing. The toaster burns one corner of your bread black and leaves the other corner raw. The knives cut about as well as a spoon & the silverware is pretty rusted. In short: if you're looking to spend very little time indoors, want to be on the water, and only care about the water pressure, the bed, and the view it's a perfect spot. If you're planning on spending any time lounging in the living room or cooking, look elsewhere."
