tucked in nice and quiet , near all the good family beaches and snorkeling reef

  • 4 of 5

I had a nice relaxing time upstairs in this super clean studio rental,

great having the grocery store downstairs , given how far up and down the coast you need to run to find food/bevs ... so basically makes an easy time of your vacation to stay local!

Puako General Studio

  • 5 of 5

I arrived late in the evening and it was nice that Christine (part of the management team) met me at the property and gave me a tour of the facilities and explained a little about the property.

Psst! Don't tell: Hidden gem of the Kohala coast!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfectly situated spot for quiet relaxation, the sound of the waves and some of the best quasi-private snorkeling you'll find on this white-sandy coast. The General Store is surprisingly well stocked and conveniently located down the private back stairs, but if you'll be cooking there are bigger markets within 15 minutes drive. Private, laid-back (unlike the ritzy, cookie-cutter inns up and down this stretch of coastline) and very affordable given you're just a hop across this sleepy neighborhood street to the beckoning ocean. Great sunset views from the deck. Abundant towels and bedding. Bonus beach gear and coolers. Super friendly staff that's there when you need them and appropriately out-of-sight and mind when you don't. My only hope is that it stays the perfect hidden gem and doesn't blow up (and booked up!) when people find out what an incredible spot this is. We will definitely be back!

Lovely remodeled studio with A/C! Clean, quiet, and perfect for my husband and I!

  • 5 of 5

We called Mary at last minute looking for rental after discovering we made a wrong decision with a different management company (who rented us a 5 star VRBO cockroach infested place) . This place was immaculate, beautiful, remodeled, clean, quiet, and without cockroaches, at same price of other location! It was perfect home base for my husband, located close to Hapuna Beach and excellent snorkeling. Partial ocean view was a plus, and a quick, easy way to see whether seas were calm for snorkeling. Manager was kind and easy to work with. Well kept, nice furnishings, and comfy bed. Also appreciated the room darkening shades which let us sleep in. And of course the snorkel, fins, boogie boards, beach chairs which were included. Can't wait to come back!
