Recent Puako reviews

  • Condo and location perfect

    "We spent two glorious weeks in this Puako condo. Very roomy, everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay, comfy beds, nice lanai with a beautiful view of ocean out front and the mountain behind, two pools a regular and wading pool. We even saw 5 wild turkeys out the back door. While the beach out front is not the best for swimming, good for kids though, it was great for seeing the turtles, looking in the tide pools and watching the sunsets. Beach 69, Hapuna and Mauna Kea just a short car trip up the road. We would have liked to snorkel the Puako reef but surf conditions were too rough and Beach 69 was only good on one of our days. Hapuna is a huge beach with good snorkelling on the north end and good boogie boarding but Mauna Kea was our favourite but you have to go early to get a parking spot from the hotel. The condo location was perfect for exploring the north end of the island and down to the many beaches south to the airport and the resort areas of Fairmont Orchid, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa. Loved it all."

  • Three Weeks At The Whales Tail

    "Nice, relatively secluded, location. Good swimming, snorkeling and views of the Humpback migration to Alaska. Well equipped house and kitchen, and nicely furnished. Easy access to Puako General Store. The road noise, especially early in the morning, is truly annoying."

  • Perfect in every way

    "We just returned from our stay on the big island and the vintage cottage. This cottage was immaculate and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. For those who like to cook in, the kitchen was supplied with everything, including spices, to cook a great meal. The pictures do not even do this cottage justice. It is even much nicer in person than the web shows. The outdoor shower was fantastic, the bed comfortable and the location perfect for what we were looking for. We experienced some of the best snorkeling across the street at the various beach access points. We saw at times six turtles at a time. Entry and exit from the water can be challenging here so it is best for intermediate-experienced snorkelers. We were so happy we chose to stay in Puako rather than the neighboring resort areas. I would recommend this rental to anybody and we will be back!"

  • private beach front compound

    "we loved this well appointed, tastefully decorated home! private, yet located right on the beach. we spent many evenings watching the sun set over the ocean while bbq-ing fresh local fish. we were a group of 4 and the house seemed a little empty. next time we will take a group of 6 to 8! having the fully equipped guest house offers the opportunity to spread out! the houses are painted the exact colors of the plentiful little geckos!! the only drawback to staying at hui pu was that we never wanted to leave, which cut back on the sightseeing and adventuring that we had planned to do. the snorkeling was awesome and the unique white sandy beach filled with trees kept us occupied! the puako general store and foodland had everything we needed and were both close by. the blue hawaiian helicopter tour was amazing and worth leaving the house for! i do wish i had taken my own pillow because i prefer down to synthetic. there was abundant bedding, towels, etc and everything was so clean!"
