"This is our second stay in the Kona side of this property. Still in love with the location, right on the water in Puako with turtles sunbathing on the rocks! It has a great 3 mile run to the surf spot & back, snorkeling if the weather allows, and a charming well-stocked general store an easy walk. Great rental company, always friendly & leave helpful info & tips. If you're concerned about privacy from the other condo, no worries - it's very thoughtfully screened & fenced so that you hardly notice that you have neighbors.
The house itself is getting pretty tired in spots, definitely deteriorated from out last visit 2 years ago. The older bathroom is a bit grimey but the shower still has great hot water & great water pressure. The beds and sheets are soft & comfy (master is a good size, but the second bedroom is pretty tight - think Europe). The living room is average - furniture is worn and not too comfortable but has a great view of the water. The kitchen was our main complaint - it is sorely in need of an appliance & supply update. The dishwasher would not turn on (front panel was also missing), the little mini-range was probably just above the level of piece-of-junk brand new and now the temperature knob spins like the wheel-of-fortune leaving you guessing. The toaster burns one corner of your bread black and leaves the other corner raw. The knives cut about as well as a spoon & the silverware is pretty rusted.
In short: if you're looking to spend very little time indoors, want to be on the water, and only care about the water pressure, the bed, and the view it's a perfect spot. If you're planning on spending any time lounging in the living room or cooking, look elsewhere."

"Our annual visit to the Big Island was even better this year thanks to our stay at this vintage beach front home. Nothing fancy, just everything you need to have a great time. Morning coffee and afternoon Mai Tai's in lounge chairs, peacefully watching the tide spray the lava flow that extends from the beach. Just a few minutes away from multiple beaches and 10 minutes from the dive shop - Kohala Divers (our favorite).
The owners of the home are very kind, helpful and giving. They live on the property as well, but you'd never know it - they give you your space.
It's a great place to party! We can't wait to go back!!"

"The house itself was fine. Nothing special. Just a great rustic beach house. What was amazing was the location. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. The beach is small, with shade and a rope swing and a lovely little coral reef. So lovely to wake up first thing in the morning and go snorkeling. Not a lot of great food nearby. We ate at the taco & burger place a bunch, which was fine. And we cooked at Ulu Niu, which was also fine."

"The location was stunning! The grounds were beautiful with the smell of plumeria in the air. You will have the best snorkeling experience on the island...turtles, spotted eagle rays, moray eels and all species of Hawaiian fish and invertebrates right in your backyard.
It was one of our favorite vacations and we would love to come back again!"
