Recent Puako reviews

  • Beautiful place, not a big resort community

    "This was our 1st trip to the Big Island and couldn't have chosen a better spot. The cottage is the perfect size for 2 people and had everything needed. We loved having the beach chairs etc. for the beach trips and couldn't think of anything we would have added to the kitchen utensils or supplies. The decor of the cottage was apprioate for its location and loved the linen sheets. The biggest plus besides the what was already mentioned above was the friendly neiborhood, away from the big resorts but close enough to go for dinner if you wanted. 2 Papayas level of service was great and we loved finding the 2 papayas in the frig to enjoy later. It was a wonderful 2 weeks"

  • KPB from CA

    "This Puako updated and well furnished home was lovely for my husband our daughter and her boyfriend. Their bedroom was at opposite end of the house from ours. The house come with a well equipped kitchen as well as a generous supply of towels. Great ocean views with whales beyond and turtles and an eel just beyond the sea wall, wonderful lanai, comfy sofas, great TV, & outdoor shower. 2 Papayas met our every need. Only drawback: all doors are slatted for good airflow, but they do prevent privacy."

  • First Class Top Notch Villa!!!

    "The Villa was first class all the way... Great location, tons of fun right outside the door with snorkel, scuba, stand up paddle board, kayaking, over 20 sea turtles just resting on the rocks and beaches outside. Some of the best beaches minutes away. Golf, Spas, etc... Rooms were all big and comfortable with beautiful bathrooms attached and ocean views everywhere. Kitchen was beautiful with Viking appliances and granite counters (warning -you are basically sharing a jungle like tropical setting with all that nature brings, so make sure you clean up or the ants will come out). Could have stayed forever, but reality called us home for now... We'll be back! Other info: Surprisingly, we had dive and snorkel boats mooring at three different buoys right outside the villa every day; we snorkeled and were surprised how great it was (you need water shoes to avoid spiny urchin stings to get out). We're also certified divers, so later we rented scuba equipment from a local shop and had some great shore dives right out front. The outside shower made rinse and clean up of gear simple. There wasn't much information on this before we left so this info should be helpful for future visitors. Only negative was they could really use soft water - or a dish washer with built in soft water like Miele or Bosch... The hard water had already done damage to the dishwasher’s plastic silverware holder so the silverware would fall through cracks and holes in the bottom. The place is only 2 years old and the dishwasher is already taking a beating because of the hard water (Viking isn't really known for their dishwashers anyway)... But other than that PERFECT!!!"

  • Lovely Getaway

    "Our group of 4 couples started planning a surprise 60th birthday getaway almost one year ago. I immediately came across Home of the Hula Moon and thought it would meet our needs -- large home, on the water with private spaces to be alone when needed. We were not disappointed but rather quite impressed with the home, beautiful setting and the attention to EVERY detail. Photos online do not do the home and setting justice but in person it is that much more special. How do you like your coffee? Drip, Espresso, French Press? It is all here... very luxurious towels and linens, Chefs kitchen, bikes for exploring the area. Enough beach equipment for the entire crowd and the finishes in the home are top-notch. Nikki's list of recommended in-home Chefs (for the birthday dinner) and whale watching excursions were spot-on. Thank you so much! We hope to return SOON!"
