  • Ocean front rental. Private with incredible views.

    "Easy, easy, easy....quiet, peaceful on water. Owner's home is on property (not on water) and separate structure away from oceanfront rental. Owner only there for a few days during two week stay but treated me like it was my home instead of hers. Outdoor shower was incredible. Wish my home in California was suited for immediate install. Accommodations provided are all you need. Large living/dining open room with room to spread out. Parking spacious and off street, coin laundry with coins supply provided, barbecue, picnic table, and hammock for outside nap. Best reef on the island is out your back door for snorkeling and tide pools. World class golf, choice of resorts for dining 10 minutes away but why leave? Lots of windows for view of ocean and open air. Sunsets can't be missed each evening. Will return as soon as I can."

  • Beautiful!!

    "My family ( 2 daughters, son in law and two year old grandson) was on the big Island for a wedding. My daughter and her husband and toddler stayed in the lower apartment. The house was very clean and well stocked. We loved the house!! It was steps to the beach. The house had everything you would need to go to the beach, chairs etc. The property manager was very helpful. She had a few groceries delivered so we would be able to have breakfast in the morning. We will be definitely be coming back in the future!"

  • 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!"

  • 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!"
