  • Perfect for Family

    "The condo provided the perfect location and accomodations for our family's Spring Break vacation. The three bedrooms and two baths provided plenty of room for our teenagers, in a quiet location. From the third floor balcony, we enjoyed great views of the ocean, whale watching, and beautiful sunsets. There is a beautiful beach across the street, and you are only 5-15 minutes away from additional pristine beaches, hiking locations, and shopping centers. The General Store next door stocks your basic grocery items, as well as many fresh specialty items and friendly sales associates. We appreciated all of the comforts of home and recreational gear, with the well stocked inventory of boogey boards, beach chairs & towels, snorkel gear, cooler, kitchen appliances and dishes, linens, travel guides, and more. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves and waking up to the sounds of tropical birds. The pool is warm and clean and the grounds are well maintained and inviting, with a variety of tropical plants and flowers. The reserved parking space was a bonus, and the owners were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend this condo, when visiting the Big Island."

  • 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!"

  • The Perfect Beach Home

    "We loved staying at Duke's beach home! We arrived after dark and Duke had everything ready for us. We made good use of the great yard and grill right away and had the best sleep ever listening to the waves crashing on the reef at night. We saw whales and rainbows from the front yard during the day and saw turtles and the best sunsets every dusk. Everyone walks from the nearby hotel to see the amazing sunset that we got to see right from the hammock! You can hop in and snorkel right in front of the house or you have 3 of the most amazing beaches on the island all within a 5 minute drive of the house (we made good use of the boogie boards :-). Duke was only around when we needed him and he was quick to respond to every email. We rented the studio and it was plenty spacious for the two of us; a comfy bed, plenty of towels, a full kitchen and a huge front porch. It was everything that we needed and the location couldn't be beat, the only bad part about it was that we eventually had to leave!"

  • Don't tell anyone else

    "This house is mere steps away from the best beach on the island, maybe in all of Hawaii. Our third time staying here, can't wait to get back. The BBQ is a huge bonus, we were able to cook up some tasty dinners and enjoy the sunsets from the front deck. I am hesitant to give Ehu Kai an excellent review because I don't want the secret to get out and make it more difficult for me to reserve again. ;-)"
