Recent Puako reviews

  • Relax and enjoy the views on the Big Island

    "This was our second time on Puako beach but first time at the Whales Tail. House was exactly what we wanted. Beach in front of house was so nice especially for young kids. Very well stocked with beach chairs, snorkels masks fins etc. 2 papayas were wonderful, made sure we had everything we needed or asked for. Another plus for the Whales Tail is the house has air conditioning. Would highly recommend this house for a great family vacation"

  • It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Incredible home in every way. It was spotless, perfectly maintained, and absolutely the greatest experience from start to finish. The weather was very warm during our stay, but the air-conditioning worked well during the heat of the day, and the openness of the home and ample fans allowed us to enjoy the evenings and the mornings without any need for AC. The secluded beach was fantastic as well. We enjoyed snorkeling right from the house. The house was stocked with everything we could possibly have imagined. You name it; it was there. And lastly, kudos to the owner, Nann, and her entire support staff (Jeremy, Chris, and Christian) for making the entire process from reservation to check-in to check-out a professional and wonderful experience for us. A best value for the price. We'll be back!"

  • 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!"

  • Amazing, beautiful, immaculately maintained oceanfront paradise!!

    "An amazing home on an amazing lot. Oceanfront, daily gorgeous sunsets right from the lawn and beach, sunbathing turtles right off the beach, this place is heaven! We were a group of 8, 4 couples, each with king size beds and private bathrooms. Bedrooms were spacious, and the master had a massive outdoor shower, which was hard to leave! We shared many cocktails at the private pool, many meals on the breezy lanai, it was fantastic. The home is close to the airport, close to shopping, and 5 minutes down the road from a gorgeous sandy beach, with private groves and crystal clear waters. My wife and her brother snorkeled right from the beach at the house every day and saw some amazing fish and turtles in the ocean. One night, on my wife's 50th birthday, we had a luau, complete with musicians, dancers, and great food. All going on as the sun set behind them, it felt like we were in a movie! I would so recommend this home to any family or group, we are going back to Home of the Hula Moon whenever possible!"
