Wonderful Place in Puako!
We absolutely loved our stay at the General Store Studio in Puako. The studio is cozy, bed is amazing, t is well appointed with everything we needed for the beach or cooking a nice meal at home. The General Store, downstairs, is very interesting and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony people watching. Store was very convenient when we needed something, and is very well stocked (and poke on Fridays!). There are several nearby beaches within walking distance. Waimea, Mauna Lani, Waikoloa are just a few minutes away but Puako is tucked away in a quiet and peaceful area, which we loved. We could drive anywhere easily. The 2Papayas office is downstairs in case we needed anything. We could not have asked for a better place to stay on this trip and cannot wait to return.
Wonderful Stay and Location
This is an amazing property. It was private, quiet, clean, and the staff were very accommodating. The location was perfect, away from all the resorts and close to the best beaches on the big island. I highly recommend this location to everyone.
Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad you enoyed the area and the rental. We would love to have you back if future travels bring you to the Big Island.

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.
