We are builders in California and built this beautiful home ourselves.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Puako
We've been coming to the Big Island for over 10 years. Fell in love with the Mauna Lani. Very quiet but lots to do. Skip the crowds at Waikoloa and lots closer than Mauna Kea.
What makes this House unique
The whole back of the house opens up to the 17th green on the South course. Beautiful views of the ocean and Maui. The back of the house faces west so the sunsets are to die for. Walking distance to 2 top golf courses, tennis, spa, shopping, top restaurants.

Cockroaches are apparently par for the course
We encountered BIG cockroaches multiple times inside the home and left our short five day vacation early. We ran into big cockroaches in my son's shower while he showered, my daughter's bed room by her bed, my wife's beach hat in main room, my daughter's shower (crawled on her and swimsuit), my son's room, the kitchen, plus the dead ones in the laundry room and master and outside. So, to sum it up, they have cockroaches. I don't care what report their pest people give them or anything else, we left a day early on the red eye and paid to leave early because we were disgusted by the cockroches. Owner refunded one night and said this was not an infestation and occasional bugs are normal. Been to Mauna Lani several times, never encountered anything like this. Rent at your own risk. If the owner had admitted there is some problem and proposed action items to prevent it from happening again I might say give it a chance but they are in denial. Refunded us one night, thanks, however our vacation was ruined and we left early on a red eye to avoid this place and we still spent thousands on air fare, rental care, meals etc. so the gesture was totally inadequate and they are in denial. But now I see why there was a big can of Cockroach killer on the kitchen counter for the guests when we rented. If other guests didn't encounter them, they were fortunate in my opinion.
These renters checked in on Sunday 4/8. We heard nothing from them until Wednesday 4/11 except to say that they were very happy. When they called to let us know they had found cockroaches we immediately called a pest control company to inspect. They went out on 4/12 to inspect and the renter would not let them in. They inspected on 4/13 and found no evidence of cockroaches and wrote us a report saying so. We also asked our cleaners to inspect for bugs and found nothing (we also have a written statement from the cleaner). I explained to the renters that the whole house opens up and we live on a golf course. If you leave the house open, bugs can get in. Neither the renters before or after this group had any issue. I've been here since 5/6 (today is 5/10) and I have not seen one cockroach. A pest control company sprays our home on a regular basis. We've rented our home for over 8 years and have never had anyone make this complaint. We can't fix a problem that doesn't exist.
All that and more
Wished we stayed longer at this beautiful home. Owner a true pleasure to work with and easily reachable. Quick walk to a pristine, private beach.
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Amazing Home & Vacation
We were 4 couples and a baby. The house was beautiful and extremely well-equipped. We were very comfortable...from the beds, to the dining table, to the pool. The owners are very hospitable and easy to communicate with. We cooked all our breakfasts, dinners, and most lunches in. We especially enjoyed cooking on the outdoor bbq next to the pool. The beach is just a 5 minute walk. We ended up only going there a couple of times because we didn't want to leave the comfort of home! We definitely would go back. Thanks for a great holiday!
Needs some work
Candini Hale was okay for seven of us. Plenty of room, but the house looks like it needs a good deep cleaning from top to bottom. Bath towels had turned grey, and beach towels were tired. MANY light bulbs burnt out. Scummy patina on the kitchen cupboards and cups. Kitchen tap is loose. Fridge door doesn't close properly. Outdoor patio furniture cushions have seen better days. For that much money, we expected better.
We are quite honestly shocked by this review. We always tell our guests if anything is not right or we can help in any way, contact us and we are happy to address any concerns. We never received a call from these guests. We accomodated a late check in and very late check out at no additional charge (even though we had guests checking in the next day). We use professional cleaners and would have called them back for additional cleaning should it have been requested. We walk guests through our home and make all these thing clear. We were made aware of the kitchen faucet being loose and promptly repaired it for the next guests. The towels are NOT grey and the beach towels unfortunately come and go with guests. I also dispute a "scummy patina" on the kitchen cabinets etc. Again, it would have been nice to be able to address any concerns during their stay rather than in such a public forum.
We stayed in this lovely home over presidents week 2017. The house slept two couples, a sitter and 4 kids very comfortably as all rooms including the office have adjoining bathrooms. The house is beautiful and is much better in person then in the photos. Having the pool and patio so close to the kitchen and living room made it great for keeping an eye on the kids. We rented a car and also rented a golf cart and the car ended up getting very little use as everything is so close. We plan to return to this house on our next Big Island trip.
Great House, Great Vacation
Pictures don't do the house justice. Better then advertised. 6 adults and 2 kids under age 6. Plenty of room. The house is big and spread out. Awesome back yard with pool/golf course/ ocean views. Private beach is only a 5 minute walk with a great beach for families and snorkeling. Milo, the house manager is close and helpful but we didn't see or talk to him until checkout since the house was perfect and we had no issues. House has AC which is nice to have at night. Would recommend for adults or families with kids. Best vacation of our life.
