About Doug Erickson
We are a young family who likes to travel. We have 3 young children (1 boy, 2 girls) and 2 female dogs (Daddy is out numbered!). We live in Northern California, and our goal is to provide our guests with the same vacation experience that we expect and enjoy.
Doug Erickson purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Doug Erickson chose Puako
We have enjoyed visiting the 'Big Island' since our honeymoon in 2000., and enjoy the hospitality and quiet nature of the Big Island. We used to stay at a very famous resort until a few years ago when they tried to charge us $50/night per fold up bed when we were on a (Family Package). After that we decide we wanted to continue to visit Hawaii, but wanted to personalize our experience with the level of luxury and convenience, which is our goal with our properties.
What makes this Condo unique
Families with young children will enjoy the ease of not having to pack and travel with items such as port-a-cribs, beach towels, games, toys and other youth items. All of our guests will enjoy brand new furniture, TV's, kitchen items, and beds. We do not buy garage sale items like some owners. We have a lot of return guests, and we hope every guest visits us again! We also offer 15% OFF future stays at all 3 of our vacation properties (South Lake Tahoe, California, Ka'anapali Beach, Maui & this rental in Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii)

Wonderful location within Hali'i Kai. There are even two Nene birds that live nearby. Owner was very available and responsive.
Beautiful inside and out
We visit the Big Island 1-2 times a year. This was by far the most amazing property we’ve stayed in as a family. From being well stocked in the kitchen to beach toys and games. The picturesque view of the ocean from the living room and lanai was beyond spectacular. This home was perfect for our family of 6, including 3 kids;10y, 8y, 4yr and my mother in-law. We were all in perfect comfort.
The Ocean club was such an unexpected convenience that we definitely utilized for happy hour Mai Tais and snacks by the pool.
Thank you Doug so much for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We will be back again!
Wonderful location with all of the amenities a family could want.
Ideal Vacation Home!!
We've visited this island, Kauai, and Maui twice each, and this home is the BEST we've ever stayed in! We'd come back to this island just to stay in this home!
First of all, it's location in the complex is perfect. There's a beautiful lawn area beyond the west-facing lanai, which offers privacy, open space, and awesome sunsets! It's a short walk from the pool and bar/grill.
Secondly, the home is gorgeous and wonderfully appointed. There is plenty of nice dish- and glassware, including plastic plates and sippy cups, and kitchen appliances and gadgets. There's a high chair, port-a-crib, beach towels and beach chairs, wagon, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, clean, lovely, comfortable bedding, and is beautifully furnished! Foodland is only 2 miles away, and there's a closer, more expensive grocery story, so cooking in the unit is convenient.
Finally, the private pool, bar, and grill are outstanding! Pool area provides an unencumbered ocean view, so one is treated to a beautiful sunset nightly! The food and cocktails are great!! There's a perfect open air gym with cardio and weight equipment, overlooking the ocean!!! NICE! At $20/day, the resort fees are reasonable and so worth it. The grounds are impeccable and the staff welcoming, including the concierge staff in the office!
Unit H8 and the Hali'i Kai are the ideal vacation home/property! We no longer have to search for places to stay in Hawaii - this is the BEST!!!!
