  • Iconic Pu'ako beach house

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We could not have asked for a more "Hawaiian" house than this. It must have been the first house on this beach with its Polynesian feel. We were 4 adults and 2 young kids. Grandparents stayed in the separate unit; great to have that space. Kitchen worked well, very fully equipped. The big, open living room was the gathering place. The house is NOT little kid (1-2 year old) friendly so keep that in mind, especially with some of the owner's beautiful baskets and pottery. We put a lot out of reach. Best feature by far is direct access to great beach and bay for swimming, snorkeling. We were there from morning to night! House needs repairs soon, including driveway gates that are falling in and rotting wood walkways here and there. Most of those we ignored because of the splendor of the place, but owners should look closely at aging infrastructure. As we left, all we could talk about was "When can we come back?" NOTE: property managers were SUPERB -- responding quickly and professionally."

  • 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."

  • An excellent family vacation in a beautiful setting

    "My wife and I celebrated fifty years together by inviting our daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons to a three week stay in this great house in unique Puako. The common room, the lanai and the beach occupied our days together while the detached bedrooms allowed for private time when desired. The boys (ages 6 and 3) loved the lawn, the beach and the pune'e. The adults (ages withheld) enjoyed the lanai for morning and evening meals and general ocean-gazing and reading during the day. Nights before bedtime were spent on the lanai talking story and on the beach with flashlights to explore the tidepools (low and high tides). I wish I could show you the 628 images of days, nights and incredible sunsets. It was a magical time."

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.
