AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

Stayed on Hawaii nearly a dozen times and in that many different houses. This is not hyperbole: we'll never stay anywhere else again. The house had it all for us. We were not wanting for any beach items, or cooking items, etc. The house is well taken care of and the property owners absolutely care about your experience. Thank you!

Great location for a quiet getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved it in Puako! It's quiet, friendly, and nicely dark at night. This cottage served us very well with some rustic elements, but all the modern conveniences. David was a great host, allowing us privacy and being there for us when we needed something. There is a beautiful private deck (as pictured) and the beach is a short walk across the road. A major plus for us was the supply of beach bikes for rides in town or to the Shops at Mauna Lani.

great holiday cottage in Puako!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house- the availability of AC is a big plus and the house is private, quiet and really well stocked. it worked well for two of us but would also work really well for young families- No complaints here and we would return again!

Peaceful Comfortable and Lots of Turtles!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what I was hoping for our week long vacation. Dave was so very welcoming and met us at the cottage and showed us the ins and out of the property. He had everything available to us we could possibly need to enjoy the beach! Boogie boards, snorkels, masks, chairs, umbrellas, coolers! The house itself was very comfortable. To be honest, the bed we slept in was the most comfortable bed outside of my own! The house didn’t feel like a rental, it felt very welcoming. The furnishings were very tastefully chosen and I could tell that a lot of thought went into the flow of the home. Dave offered us the use of air conditioning, but I’m really not a fan so we declined. There are ceiling fans in each room and one on the back lanai. We were very comfortable without the air conditioning. The kitchen was very well equipped. There were beach bike available for us to use and we rode them to the shops as well as Beach 69! There were many sunsets spent watching the sea turtles beach themselves in a tide pool 4 minutes walk from the house! This was truly amazing! I give this place high marks and would love to return on our next visit to the Big Island! Thank you Dave for being such a great host.

Puako is the only ocean side residential community on the Kohala Coast. It is still a well kept secret of original cottages and large estate homes nestled on the coastline where all of the major 5 star resorts have been built. Small beaches and petroglyph field within walking distance. Sheltered reef for snorkeling, shore diving, swimming, under water photography.
