  • Magical

    "Most amazing stay-cation we have ever had. House and yard was immaculate. Plenty of room for our family. We especially enjoyed the deck and the layout of the entire place. The house is stocked with everything you need to have a wonderful time . We can not thank you enough for everything. We would highly recommend anyone who enjoys relaxing on the beach, watching sunsets, and family time to stay here. Well worth every penny. :) Breathtaking view of the beach from the Master Bedroom as well as the Ohana (Mother in Law) More beautiful than we expected."

  • Great home base for a family vacation

    "This is a pleasant, functional, clean condo that is well equipped with everything needed for a family home base. It's not luxurious, and it's not big, but it's very pleasant with three bedrooms and a balcony so that there is plenty of room for everyone to have some time alone to read or relax with a drink if desired. We traveled with two adults and two teens, but it would have worked fine for the whole family with three kids when they were younger. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook and keep meals for several days, which is key for cost effective family travel. There's also the cool General Store right next door so you don't have to make more than one supermarket trip to stock up at the beginning of the trip. The location is great. Very close to Hapuna for body surfing and beach time, and Beach 69 for simple snorkeling. And there's a small calm beach right across the road perfect for smaller kids. Close to Kawaihae for amazing shaved ice and also Da Fish House, for fresh fish and poke. Get there early. We grilled mahi mahi as well as burgers on the BBQ, which is electric and small but worked fine. Also located close to the roads towards Hilo and the volcano, which was convenient since the drive is kind of long, and to Waimea and Hawi in north Kohala for zipline that was seriously fun. And there are some nice hotels very close for a cocktail and lunch by the pool if that's your thing. We did that once and it was great. And there was good some shopping for clothes and beach gear. We found a lot of really awesome snorkeling close by in Puako and just south by one of the hotels. It's pretty rocky along the coast, so it's not a bad idea to get some local help at least the first time, to find the best spots and then go back to them on your own later. There was a lot of snorkel gear at the condo in the closet, so we didn't have to rent much at all. And there's a lot of beach gear for smaller kids and some beach chairs etc. That was really helpful The condo was really easy to find coming north from the airport and there's a parking space. All the directions were easy to follow. Had one question for Kimberley who answered it straight away. And there's someone onsite to help if needed. We'd love to stay again in the future and would recommend this for family. We thought it was a good deal. Enjoy."

  • Beautiful Home and Location, Plenty of Sea Turtles

    "We were a group of 4 couples, and this was the perfect place to stay. The well-equipped kitchen and huge lanai made it easy to hang out as a group, and the detached bedrooms gave plenty of privacy and quiet places to retreat. You'll need water shoes for the beach, but there were several pairs on hand, along with a beach umbrella and a few beach chairs. The water behind the house has some great snorkeling, actually, with plenty of fish, urchins, and coral. We also snorkeled with sea turtles most every day. This house is very convenient to Hapuna Beach, which is a great swimming and laying out beach. It's also only about a half hour from Kona-Kailua for a greater variety of restaurants and entertainment."

  • Puako Magic

    "A beautiful home awaits! We enjoyed our stay immensely--from morning coffee on the lanai to the gorgeous sunsets, each day held new discoveries. We watched each morning as a small flock of night herons flew out over the tide pools and landed on the lava, watching and waiting patiently for their prey. One morning, one of them caught a fish and swallowed it whole, right in front of the house (got some great photos)! There was a parade of wild turkeys that sauntered by, and there were myna birds clowning around with their raucous calls. Watching the honu (Hawai'ian green sea turtles)--so graceful in the water, so lethargic on land--and all manner of tropical fish made for hours of enjoyment. We saw a peacock flounder hiding in the sandy bottom, a snowflake eel, schools of Moorish idols, numerous butterfly fish, yellow tangs and many, many other species during our snorkeling and kayaking excursions. As if that's not enough, each evening brought another day-ending masterpiece over the Pacific. Truly magic!"
