  • 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!"

  • A Special Place for R & R

    "I'm in love with this cute house. It had everything I needed as a solo traveler and for beach adventures. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. It's perfect for a relaxing getaway from the city and away from the busy tourists spots. I love that the ocean is just across the street; it's perfect for snorkeling, watching sunsets, swimming, or doing nothing and just sit back and enjoy the lovely beach. Puako is about 10 -15 mins drive to Hapuna beach and 20 mins drive to the farmer's market, grocery shop. There is also a General Store about a mile away where I get their locally made Kona Coffee Chocolate Cake. The best thing, however, is the warm and kind hospitality of Bud and Peg (and Shawn--their equally, wonderful neighbor who was helpful in the absence of the hosts the day I arrived as well as throughout my stay). I've definitely felt the local, Hawaiian Aloha spirit during my 5 day stay. Bud is full of stories and was gracious enough to walk with me and his dog, Sancho, to the coastal trail near the house. Highly recommend this hidden paradise. It's a great value for your money and time. Will look forward to stay here on my next visit to the Big Island! Mahalo Bud and Peg!"

  • Delightful Cottage

    "My husband and I spent 3 night's at Alice's cottage. We chose the property because it was so close to a cultural event that we planned to attend on the first morning of our stay. We live on the other side of the island, several hours away, so driving in the early morning wasn't an option as the event started at 6:30 AM. The location was ideal but the cottage itself was even better. It was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and absolutely restful and peaceful. We especially loved the comfortable bed and the walk-in shower, both of which make a big difference when traveling, but really everything in the cottage was just lovely. We stopped in Waimea for groceries on our way to the cottage so made most of our meals there, but we also enjoyed shave ice from the truck in the Blue Dragon parking lot in Kawaihae (Original Big Island Shave Ice) as well as take-out sliders and fries from the Blue Dragon. The cottage is within minutes of several world-class beaches, so we spent several afternoons snorkeling at various spots. We also took a drive around the North Kohala and Hamakua Coast and spent one afternoon in Kailua Kona. The cottage is convenient to everything on that side of the island. And the sunsets are spectactular! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you, Alice."
