  • Your Own Piece of Paradise

    "Some places are just so special and magical that my tendency is not to share the place with others for fear it will not be available again when my husband and I want to visit! The drive to the bungalow was incredible, in and of itself. Beauty, nature, wild, raw, open, sweet smelling, awe inspiring are just a few words that explain just the excursion to this special destination. When we arrived we regarded the house number on a solid tropical wooden gate (it seemed majestic to us), stopped the car , looked at each other and said ‘this CAN’T be the place !?” I told my husband to use the clicker and the solid wood gate slowly opened up, welcoming us to our home for the next week. We drove well onto the property and next to the house then the gate slowly closed behind us. Wow! Having stepped out of the car we looked upon expansive lush lawns, gardens and blooming plumerias. The bungalow looked just like the pictures! So far we were impressed and equally so at sight of the sparkling cove in front of us, beckoning us to just jump in, right then and there! Instead, we went inside and found a spacious great room with lots of windows, beautiful hard wood furnishings and tropical décor. We just couldn’t help but keep pinching ourselves as we opened up all the doors and windows to let the fresh sea air and tradewinds fill the rooms. We noticed the bathroom, tastefully done with a murano glass bowl sink and roomy tiled shower full of natural light. The bungalow had everything we needed (we stocked up at Safeway in Hilo before coming to our destination) to make this our temporary home. My husband and I slept like babies on the generous king bed and we were well rested each morning. The first night the Coqui frogs were many and prevalent but they apparently cleared out once they understood we were there. Subsequent nights we looked forward to the sound of only a few Coquis lulling us to sleep, along with the lapping waves against the cove. Comfy living room, comfy counter stools and large counters…loved being able to just sit inside or out and gaze upon the surf in the bay beyond the cove. We sipped coffee and cocktails at the lanai table every morning and evening. Nice to be able to sit outside under the covered lanai while it rained and also provided ample shade during hot days. There were lots of tropical fish in the cove, which could be seen by just sitting on the wall. We took dips each night with a bright full moon showing the way. Wonderful!"

  • Best place on the island!

    "We LOVED our stay here!!! My husband took our stuff in and came running down the stairs, "you got to see this, you are never going to want to leave!" An absolute dream! It was our first trip to the big island and I read and searched and searched for where to stay and really feel like we ended up in the absolute best place on the island! Our two sons (7&9) were so comfortable snorkeling out in all the pools. We saw turtles, eels, so many types of fish and the most stunning coral I've seen. It was the perfect spot to explore the east side of the island, Volcano National Park, Akaka Falls, hot ponds, scenic drives. No matter what we did we were always anxious to hurry "home" and hop back into "our" pools. Such a beautiful, tranquil place. I loved waking up to sunrises over the ocean and drifting off to the sounds of the surf. You really feel like you are in your own personal paradise. Jim and Gail were so wonderful to work with. Quick with responses and happy to answer all of my questions. The place was clean and had everything we needed. We don't know when we'll be returning but when we do, it will definitely include a longer stay at the Coral Pool house!"

  • Christmas in Shangri-La

    "This unique property met and exceeded our expectations. We loved swimming in the warm, fish filled water. The outdoor master bath was amazing, and I loved the round house and screened in kitchen. The location was perfect for an afternoon trip to the volcano. We also enjoyed shopping and people watching in nearby Pahoa."

The Power of Nature Resides Near Puna District Beach Rentals

There are many things to enjoy during your stay at Puna District beach rentals. Nearby Rainbow State Falls offers an 80-foot waterfall.
