Recent Puako reviews

  • Much better than a hotel

    "This delightful cottage is totally comfortable, clean and well located. The owner, David, has all sorts of toys for guests to use…..boogie boards, bikes, snorkel gear. The kitchen is well stocked with spices, condiments, etc, so it was easy to pick up the meat, fish, veggies at the store, fix a simple dinner, and eat on one of the two comfortable lanais. The beach access is only four houses down and across the street, where good snorkeling and turtle viewing are available. Very relaxing vacation."

  • Best Honu ever

    "My wife and I enjoyed the best vacation yet while staying in this cottage right on the beach. We have been to Hawaii 5 times and this accommodation tops the list. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, and were within walking distance of the general store. We had snorkeled all over the island and decided to finally snorkel in our backyard and for the first time encountered turtles. We really had diamonds in our backyard and did not know it. We would stay here again and again. Great neighborhood and wonderful and the cottage was perfect."

  • Greatest base for accomplishing many things

    "Let's face it, the Big Island is a big big island...so there's really no central spot that is convenient everything. But if anything is close to that, I recommend Puako and this condo in particular. The luxury resorts are nearby - and that's where the rich people in our party stayed so we could still be 'close' - the drives most other destinations were all on the order of an hour or so, and that covers from Mauna Kea summit to Waipio Valley to Pololu Beach to Hilo and botanical gardens. Arrangements for this condo could not have been easier and we're handled ny the owners with promptness and care. The 3 rooms were all quite comfortable and there was an abundance of things already in the condo so all one really needed was food and a good attitude. Having the convenience of a market next door is great (closes at 7p though). We really appreciated the access to a string of beaches on the Puako Road as well. I was told Neil Young lives down there somewhere, too. I give this a top recommendation!"
