The home was clean and comfortable in a quiet neighborhood. Loved hearing the birds during the day and frogs at night. The sound of ocean waves lulled me sleep--it was a real getaway!
Just two blocks away, there is a park. Take the lawn chairs which are provided and enjoy breakfast at the ocean and watch for whales.
Drive south along the coast for a beautiful drive through the rainforest and go to Ahalanui park for swimming in a warm tide pool.
Mike was quick and clear in his communication.
Would return here again!
My husband and I stayed there for 4 days early December and the house was perfect. You can tell the owners are cooks because they had every utensil imaginable. Place was comfortable, clean, quiet and spacious. It really was a nice location where one could walk down to see the ocean a block away. There is a nice park in the neighborhood. Easy driving distance to tide pools, gardens and Hilo. Didn't do much in Pahoa itself but it's close to that town.
Would definitely recommend it.
We enjoyed our vacation in Hawaii so much because of this house. The Puhi house has three things we raved about to our friends once we got home: location, a very nice modern kitchen, and lots of space.
Location: The walk to the rocky shore was only about 5 mins away. Watching the waves crash upon the cliffs was mesmerizing. This house was about 20 mins off the main road and was easy to navigate to one we got our bearings. We were lucky enough to find The Maku'u Farmers Market on Saturday on our way into town and a grocery store wasn't to far from there. The house is also located south enough that the drive to the tide pools in Kapoho wasn't as bad as we thought.
Kitchen: The Puhi has a well stocked, modern kitchen. We loved it! We are a family that likes to cook and this kitchen allowed us to. Any pot, pan, or plate we need was provided. It even had a hand mixer, a blender and a number of other appliances for use. It was so great to stay in a place that really felt like home with everything that was provided.
Space: The Puhi house has three spacious bed bedrooms, a modern kitchen, a combined dining living room, an enclosed mud room downstairs, and a very nice upstairs covered patio. As a family of six, we stayed comfortably. The upstairs patio was perfect for having breakfast while watching the rain come down. The bathrooms were also nicely sized. The master bathroom was beautiful!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Hawaii. Thank you Mike for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home!
We were having work done on our house so we needed a place to stay that was close to home and convenient. This house was very well kept, clean, spacious, and had a nice little porch where we could relax and enjoy our selves. It also has a spacious kitchen equipped with everything you could possibly need! Also, the owner and the manager were both very helpful and friendly.
The most house is amazing. It as everything and nothing you need. Lots of space for families and friends. The jewel is how beautiful the grounds of the house are. Just being at this house captures the magic of the big island. You must visit the beach park down the street from the house, most definitely not for swimming but you will see some of the most grand scenery the island has to offer. You will need a car but will appreciate the community near Pahoa and Hilo.
