  • Amazing Location/People and Best Coral Reef!

    "I stayed here with a friend for almost a week, and at first was not sure where it was that we were driving to in the dark. When we arrived, the air was rich with the scent of flowers, and we opened the door to a week of bliss. Be warned - this is not in the middle of tourist central, and there are no major grocery stores nearby. Instead, there is a small general store that pipes in the hydrophoned calls of whales from the offshore harbour. There is the shallow reef, home to the resident turtles just across the street. And Bud - the penultimate host, and his pooch Sancho. We were sorry to have missed Peg, but I am sure we will go back to stay with them again. The suite is small, but good. There is an outdoor shower that really makes the night time snorkelling amazing :) All in all this place is one that I will remember for a long time to come!"

  • So Relaxing...

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Puako. The house is right on the beach; clean, comfortable, full of charming memorabilia and antiques. The bed in the beachfront Kohala bedroom was super comfortable, and the numerous fans kept us cool at night. The kitchen had all the equipment and gadgets needed for meal prep, and because of the warm days, we mostly cooked outside on the grill. The neighborhood General Store was well stocked with REAL food (not just snacks) and the proprietors were gracious and friendly. We had to make a supreme effort to put on shirts & shoes to leave the house and the beach tide pools and the turtles, to make a short drive south to glamorous resort shops; or North to the artsy village of Hawi; or East to the cool, misty hill town of Waimea for the Farmers' Market. Some of the best snorkeling we've enjoyed anywhere was at the end of Puako Beach Road. There was so much to do, so close the house, that we'll have to stay twice as long next visit! Thank you for sharing this delightful property with us. Aloha!"

  • Three generation family vacation -

    "This was a perfect house in a gorgeous water front location for a family of eight. A week of fun... sunset views each evening, snorkeling daily. The kitchen is very well equipped and conducive to excellent meal preparation. Good amenities in lovely house."

  • Great Location. Neat & Clean Condo

    "Our stay on the Big Island was our favorite part of our Hawaii vacation. Puako is off the beaten path which is what we were looking for. The snorkeling at the end of the road was the best we experienced anywhere. The beach access just across the road from the condo had turtles in abundance. We did travel around the Big Island and the location is a reasonable drive to popular attractions. The front bedrooms could use a little more A/C airflow, but the fan provided helped with that."

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.
