Our family of 7 was extremely happy with our recent 9 day stay in this beautiful property. The views were amazing, especially the sunsets which we could see from our beach. We loved that some of the best snorkeling we did on our vacation was right off our own beach. This would not be a good entry point for first time snorkelers as it is rocky. However, for the experienced snorkelers in our group it meant they could go out twice a day with ease. We could even hear whales as we snorkeled.
The kitchen is well equipped with knives, pots and pans, etc. Most meals we ate on the lanai and that was very pleasant. There was always a cooling breeze both indoors and out.
The furnishings are very old-style Hawaiian - not brand new but comfortable in every way and stylish in the sense of being perfectly suited to the home and lifestyle.
The strong swimmers in our group loved using the lap pool, especially at night.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe. There are good restaurants and shops in easy driving distance 20 - 30 minutes away.
The few questions we had upon arrival were answered quickly and satisfactorily by the management.
Beautiful setting - architecturally thoughtful home.
Family of four adults visiting in January - surf was high so we spent more time in and around home than in the water - home has everything we needed - manager was very responsive.
Loved this house!
House was perfect! Family vacation with 3 adults and 4 children. Kids were all under 12 and as little at 3yrs old and they all loved it. Turtles were right out front daily. Perfect snorkeling spot just right out front. House was stocked with all necessities. They even accomadated a late checkout. Hope to be back soon!!!
Hawaiian dream vacation
You could not have a more perfect private Hawaiian setting. Here is a private oceanfront yard, with access to the water (tiny bit of sand too). Watch the sunset every night, see the creatures--especially many sea turtles--in the near-shore pools. If you snorkel or dive, this is heaven: you can shore dive from the house (easiest entry a few doors down the beach), and the snorkeling is fantastic: warm water, great visibility. Check out the turtle cleaning station just off shore--you'll see the dive boats coming there. We saw a manta ray and several spotted eagle rays while snorkeling--that's a first.
The house is brilliantly designed to take advantage of the near-constant ocean breezes. As long as you keep everything open, the temperature is okay, even in July. We got used to it within the first day. But if you are sensitive be aware that there is no air conditioning. The two big bedrooms that face the ocean are obviously best; the smaller back room with two twins was much warmer.
Didn't expect to use the lap pool and hot tub on the side of the house but they turned out to be very nice as well. Plenty of dishes and cooking gear including a rice cooker.
We have been coming to the Big Island for many years and have tried both resorts and homes. This home has the feeling of having been a "home." It was very comfortable, had everything we needed, and the setting was spectacular. We love to snorkel and the access was perfect. We enjoyed the privacy and beauty of its location. We will return!
Charming relaxing find in a great location
This house was a great find, located right on the water in Puako, close to the stunning Hapuna beach. The views are beautiful, not only of the ocean, but of the greenery, lava tide pools, palm trees and sunsets. You can snorkel right off the property. The whole house opens allowing breezes to flow through. It was a delight to sleep to the sound of the surf. There is a charming general store a few minutes walk away. It was also handy to have the house stocked with beach chairs, boards, coolers, picnic containers, etc, making beach trips easy. We’d love to come back. Mahalo!
