  • Exceeded Our Expectations!

    "I am originally from Oahu and now live on the Mainland and found Pu'uhonua to be such a special place. It was even better than I imagined, which I was pleasantly surprised about! More than just the beauty of the house and location, there is a sense of being immersed in the spirit of aloha. And even though you feel far removed from civilization, modern conveniences are very close which is nice. Bruce and Nikki were very gracious and shared some of the fruits grown on the property itself and Nikki offers wonderful spa treatments in natural surroundings next door!"

  • Family Gathering

    "We spent a fabulous week at this lovely house in February, 2014. It was a perfect location and accommodations for 4 generations. There were ten of us, ages 4 to 84. Many things about the visit are memorable, but especially we found that the house offers a big group lots of spaces to be together, and also places to be alone. Large bedrooms and bathrooms distributed conveniently and each with some privacy. There were places to make puzzles together, play cards, eat shared meals, watch the Winter Olympics on big screens (several), and then outdoors to go swimming (luxurious pool!), and explore the surroundings amongst the avocado trees. The kitchen is spacious and modern so several people can work together on different things and come up with a wonderful spread. An issue arose with the water supply, but vastly more important, we found that all it took was a quick phone call, and the owner leapt into action, and things were fixed. She has a well-established support crew that knows what to do when stuff happens. This vacation house is conveniently located near some of the best ocean beaches on the Big Island, in the Captain Cook/City of Refuge area, and the owner’s detailed descriptions in the written information are very helpful. The house has enough altitude above the ocean that the view of the sky and sea is spectacular, and yet the temperatures/humidity are moderate 24/7. When you visit this place, be sure to take the time to walk down to the main road and back at least once. Round trip it is about an hour’s walk, and if you take time to smell the flowers, and to take pictures of the plants, flowers, fruits, berries and animals along the way, you won’t soon forget it."

  • Group from Germany

    "We stayed here for 6 nights. The house is very cosy and well situated between kealakekua bay and two steps, which is a wonderful choice. We were with more than 10 people which we would not recommend. 10 is really good, but more is quite tight. kitchen was not very well equipped for the amount of people, that suppose to fit in. fridge was compared to this really great. there were enough beachtowels and some boogie boards and flippers. marci and chuck did the best so we could feel very comfortable and brought some stuff for the kitchen over that were needed. they are very warm hearted people and helped us with every question we had. mahalo for everything and we would defiantly come again with less people :-)"
