  • Cozy Cottage right on the Kohala Coast Line!!

    "This property is unique in that it is nestled in a very quiet and upscale neighborhood and affords complete privacy for those seeking to disconnect and unwind. With panoramic views and the ocean just steps from cottage, we couldn't have been more pleased! With beautiful well kept grounds, fruit and citrus trees, a private pool and a tennis court, this property was better than a resort for having it all to yourself. The cottage takes you back in time and the vibe is definitely Old Hawaiian which we loved. Nothing fancy, but we liked that it was authentic. There is wi-fi and cable TV if you must. The cottage is well stocked with everything you need to prepare your own dinners and believe me, you will want to have your meals here! If you do venture out, there are two restaurants worthy of mention. Both in Waimea, the "Red Water Cafe" is casual and has an excellent lunch and dinner menu. I recommend the Fresh sushi rolls their home made cheese burgers. "Merrimans" is more upscale and pricy, but the food, ambience and service there is good. Get your fresh fish at Hale L'a Da Fish House. Bring a cooler, they will provide ice. If you dive or snorkel, you can walk out your door and enjoy the reef with beautiful fish and coral. Careful for the rocks and entry, early morning is best for right in front of the house. There is another entry point a short walk to the left of property at the public access called the "keyhole" that provides a little easier entry. There, you will see more people as it is popular with locals and tourists. I do not recommend swimming out front unless you are strong and experienced. The currents can be strong and change often. There is great walk up sandy beach at Mauna Kea which is a short drive away. Perfect for kids and adults, you can spend the day. If you like cats, and want to take a walk, there is a feral cat colony at the end of the road, but you must take the beach trail to the left of property, then go to end and turn into the parking lot at the public park to get to it. The cat colony will be on your left . If you take food, they all will come out which is pretty amazing! There are food and water bowls as they are fed by locals and a few even will let you pet them. Overall, our stay at the cottage was a perfect fit for us. I would recommend it for those who enjoy Old Hawaiian style, privacy, tranquility and being on the ocean. This was our second visit to Puako and we will be back again in the near future."

  • Beautiful home!

    "This condo is gorgeous! The back patio is right off the swimming pool, but its still very quiet. They provide everything you could possible need. I had a highchair for my little one, as well as bath and crib. One of closests also provided every beach toy you could want. The beach is a short drive away inside the complex and its perfect. Very calm and beautiful. My 2yr old LOVED it. So glad we stayed here; we very much enjoyed it!"

  • Nice unit and good value but arguably best suited to older couples

    "Overall this is a nice place provided you are looking for a quiet condo and have tempered expectations of the local beach and pool. Pros: - Overall quality of unit and complex (best in area?) - Well equipped with several kitchen basics and beach stuff - Spacious; great for sharing with another couple - Local paths / trails are cool - Quiet Cons: - Retirement community vibe - Beach within walking distance (A-bay) is a disappointment - Nice pool area but not heated (cold!) and lots of rules (no toys, etc) - Couch is in dire need of replacement - Management company is nice and polite but behind the times with online booking (fax/mail) - Local shopping areas areas (King/Queens shops) have buzz-kill elements like a Macy's and Macaroni Grill - Quiet We had a small maintenance issue that the manager attempted to remedy immediately. The floor is really dirty - probably from folks not taking off their shoes and tracking street grime on to the tile floor. We are strict shoes-off folks so after seeing black soles after 30 minutes I called to request a cleaning. They promptly came and re-washed but is didn't really help. I didn't push it. Overall the place is in nice condition but the floor needs some help. I suppose it is hard with a rental... The complex is really nice but it was hard with a 4 year old - A-bay is a drag, cold pool, no pool toys permitted. All in, it is probably about the best you'll do in the Kohala area but it isn't a great family set up if you are comparing vs a resort."

  • Beautiful Unit/Beautiful Location

    "This condo is in a pristine resort setting. The complex offers a beautiful oceanfront pool, gym and restaurant/bar. The condo is beautifully decorated and well outfitted for the vacation traveler. The availability of beach equipment and the owner's personal recommendations for area beaches and restaurants were very helpful. The attentive owners responded to inquiries promptly. We can't wait to go back!"
