  • Banyan tree house

    "We had a great experience staying at this quaint cottage on the Banyan property. Small but had all the amenities we needed. Lovely views of the many beautiful trees and ocean beyond."

  • Hui Pu is a fabulous vacation home on the best beach on the Big Island!!

    "I loved Hui Pu and would definitely stay there again. Five of us stayed there to celebrate my birthday. The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and we managed to keep it that way. The listing description does not really do it justice, as the ambience is difficult to capture in photographs. I really felt like I was in Hawaii, as the house is very authentic Hawaiian in its architecture and furnishings. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped and had everything we needed. We grilled fresh fish that we bought at the fish market nearby in Kawaihae Harbor. We ate dinner one night at the large round table under the gazebo, and another night we ate at the small table outside. When it was windy, we ate at the dining room table. We spent most of our time beachcombing on Wailea Beach and snorkeling and swimming in Wailea Bay. The snorkeling was fantastic, and we saw lots of colorful reef fish and green sea turtles every day. We also hiked on the Kahalui trail up to a point where we watched whales breach and enjoyed the spectacular scenery. In my opinion, there is no more perfect location anywhere on the island. I even invented a cocktail made with POG that we named the Hui Pui in honor of Hui Pu! The house is conveniently located near Kawaihae Harbor where we bought our fish and went on a snorkeling trip with Kohala Divers. it is also near the Mauna Kea Hotel, where we went for cocktails and to watch the sunset, and the Mauna Lani and Waikaloa Beach shopping centers, where we did our grocery shopping at Foodland and Island Gourmet Market. We did have plumbing problems in the downstairs bathroom in the main house, but the management company was extremely responsive and made arrangements to have repairs made as quickly as possible. It is an older home, so the plumbing could use some work, but that was the only negative thing about the house except for something loose that banged against the roof above the master bedroom when it was extremely windy. Once these two issues are addressed, I will be back again to Hui Pu!"

  • Our special paradise.

    "We absolutely love this place! In 2009 we were lucky enough to rent this little apartment from Bud and Peg. We stayed one week and enjoyed every minute of it. We have been coming every year since then to stay longer and longer. In fact, next year we will be staying 7 weeks. That pretty much says it all. It's clean, comfortable, and has everything you need to make beautiful Hawaiian memories. Bud and Peg are great hosts and have become great friends. We are so thankful to have found this little piece of paradise."

  • Amazing

    "The house is perfect. The house was actually larger and more spacious than we had expected, especially with the huge en suites with every bedroom. The home is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean, and the interior stayed nice and cool even through the heat of the day. And the wooden floors are just spectacular. The location is perfect, tucked away from the main road and the big resorts, giving it more of a community feel. You are only a few minutes away from some of the best beaches on the island and a couple of nice resorts if you want to go out for a nice meal. The ocean is right at your doorstep, and we snorkeled out front - we saw turtles every single day. We also rented a couple of kayaks for a couple of days - and they deliver right to your door. Honestly, the owners/managers have thought of everything and anticipated your every need. We really appreciated being greeted by a friendly staff member who ensured we settled in OK and answered any questions. There was even a generous gift basket, which was a nice touch. If I could give 6 stars I would - it is that good!"
