Why Emily Rose chose Puako
When looking for property on the Kohala Coast last year, the owner fell in love with Puako! He is an avid photographer, and there is no shortage of beauty here, plus there's a perfect sunset almost every evening. He looked at a number of units in the building, but when this one came up, he knew it was the one! Because it's on the top floor, we get the best ocean views, but being on the North corner gives us views of 5 volcanoes, which you won't get from any other unit!

Magical Puako Condo
What a wonderful stay we had! Emily Rose was easy to work with and made us feel at home. The condo has a fabulous view and we were awoken by song birds and lulled to sleep by ocean waves. The gift basket of local goods was an added bonus. Soft towels, a new grill, and decent cooking tools made this a nice refuge from the heat and more touristy restaurant/resort areas. We will definitely be back!
We stayed at the beginning of January. We are frequent visitors to the area. The view from this unit is beautiful. We have stayed in this condo complex before. I believe the price should be lower as it is only a 2 bedroom and the other rentals on the top floor are all 3 bedroom and are similarly priced if not less. The bathrooms have had a slight update which is good. The kitchen is old and was not very clean. (Crumbs under the appliances,food on the front of the cupboards and the tile floor wasn’t very clean). We didn’t use the coffee maker (because it was dirty). There was no electric grill on the lanai which was disappointing as the other units have this included. There was also no dishwasher, again the other units have this. The towels were white and fluffy and Emily was very pleasant to deal with. I’d say overall some of the other units for rent we have seen in this building are better, having had renovations and a few nicer touches but this being on the top floor is great!
Perfect setting for quiet and tranquil holiday. The condo was well equipped with all the essentials for beach days and snorkeling, and for preparing meals. Host was attentive, kind and welcoming - committed to making our stay enjoyable and comfortable. The online pictures do not capture the breathtaking views from two balconies. Condo was super clean and freshly decorated!
