"Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week on the big island, staying at the Lalmillo house. The house is so close, in fact literally on, a beautiful sandy beach, and right on Waielea bay where we were able to snorkel, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, and play in the surf to our hearts content. The location truly makes this a unique location, as we were able to spend time on the beach, then run back to the house for lunch or naps, and then back to the beach when we felt like it. The sounds of birds and the waves were a wonderful backdrop when we were eating on the deck. Leilani was great and responsive in coordinating our stay and helping us plan our vacation. We would love to return.
Clint and family"

"My husband and I loved this cottage which was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves for our precious six days. The location is beautiful and there are wonderful beaches and hikes close by. You will have to drive a couple of hours to the Volcano National Park and some other tourist destinations but the location has much to offer and we enjoyed our experience thanks to the people connected to the cottage who helped us plan our days."

"We loved the location with a short walk to the beach !!! And, the shade was fantastic since the sun was very hot
in July. The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfect would have been an air conditioner. House was very well appointed with kitchen utensils, linens, etc. They had everything we needed including beach chairs,
toys for the toddlers, snorkels, and towels. You could hear the waves from the patio !!"

"This was our third stay at this incredible and unique property. There is nowhere else on the islands like it. The ocean-front surroundings are jaw-dropping. Gorgeous sunsets, sunrises, fantastic views up and down the coast (and even of Maui sometimes). Beach 69 (shady and great snorkeling) and Hapuna (sun, surf, soft sand and facilities) are a short drive away. The snorkeling right on the property is the best in all the islands, in our opinion. Extensive reef, marine life and corals, and you have it all to yourself every time. The accomodations are spacious, very clean and well-stocked. The beds are comfortable. There's plenty of towels, pots and pans, etc. The home is charming! "Vintage" is the word another reviewer used, and that sounds about right. Duke and Miriam are gracious hosts and an absolute pleasure to do business with. They make everything easy. They are around if you need anything, yet they give their guests total privacy. Best of all is the affordability. Nothing else Ocean-front in Puako can touch it. Puako itself is the perfect location for anyone wanting "authentic Hawaii", within a reasonable driving distance to shopping, restaurants and activities. Our family of 6 will definitely be back!"
