Such a charming little studio by the ocean
This studio had everything my husband and I needed for our week on the Big Island. It was near some of the best beaches and one of the best snorkeling/diving reefs on the island as well. The neighborhood is quiet and quaint and the street is lined with beautiful foliage. This was a great base for hiking, snorkeling, and just general exploration of the island. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you two enjoyed the studio and all the nearby snorkeling. We hope to have you back if your travels bring you back.

Lovely quiet spot on the Kohala coast!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was very clean, well stocked, had a good layout, comfortable bed and great location. We enjoyed the extra unexpected touches and appreciated the excellent customer service. One minor complaint - the lanai was a bit tight for space making it awkward to get in and out but it was lovely to sit out there and enjoy the ocean view and sounds! If we could give 1/2 stars we'd rate it 4.5!
It was a great base for our daily activities. We would stay again and would not hesitate to recommend this place to others!
Thank you so much for your review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves and we would love to have you back in the future.

Convenient and Clean
The studio above the General Store was extremely clean and very convenient. It’s located right between two beach access sites. Having access to the store is perfect. The outside porch looks over the road to the beach and is a great way to relax and enjoy the ocean breezes. Mary and her team were easy to reach and very hospitable.
Thank you so much for your review! We loved having you and hope you can return in the near future.
Best spot on the Big Island
We have stayed here twice because it’s so perfect. Puako is a quiet little beach community that is close to lots of great local shops and restaurants that aren’t the cookie cutter resort experience (although those aren’t far, either, if that’s what you’re looking for).
The beach across the street is great for snorkeling, and the little reef provides calm, warm water. Scenic Hapuna Beach is just two miles up the road, and you can watch the surfers at the end of Puako Beach Drive.
The studio itself is surprisingly spacious, well-stocked, and the staff is friendly. The general store downstairs provides everything you might need, and there is great people watching from the lanai. The only thing not to like about this place is that at some point, you have to leave.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We loved having you and welcome you back anytime. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the charm of the area.
