Convenient and Clean

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best spot on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

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.

Looks like a miniature Pioneer Inn on Maui

  • 5 of 5

The General Store Studio was just perfect for us - well equipped, well located, very comfortable, convenient to the ocean, much quieter and less busy than we expected being above the store. But with such easy access to Donna's Cookies and Tropical Dreams Ice Cream downstairs how could you go wrong?

Great getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

The location above the general store is great and the unit has everything you need, perfect size for 2. The patio looks out over the ocean and nice beach access within a 2 minute walk. The staff were friendly and left great suggestions of things to do. Since the unit is above the store the mornings can be a little noisy with car doors and traffic downstairs if you are a late sleeper. Highly recommend this great spot!
