Recent Puna District reviews

  • Incredible Location and Ocean View

    "You really can't beat the location and sunrise ocean views that this home provides. You are literally on top of the water depending on the tide. The house amenities are no frills but cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much."

  • Good launching point and confortable studio

    "Paula and John's place was exactly what we were looking. The large clean studio is well equipped, as described on the web, had everything we needed for our 3 nights stay. It is located at the end of an unpaved street where you will clearly enjoy the sound of the frogs and the calm. It is about 10 minutes away from a large Foodland marketplace and 30-40 minutes from Volcanoes National Park, which was one of the reason why we decided to pick this place. In addition, you are next to the Puna district so you could head south and enjoy the Lava tree monument, some heated pools by the coast or walk the long gravel road that brings you next to the lava flow around sunset. Paula and John have also been very kind to us and a binder containing good suggestions was available and allowed us to make some informed decisions. I would stay here again and will definitely recommend this nice place."

  • As always, WOW!

    "2nd time here, but certainly not our last! For those who don't need the 5 star hotel services, you can't find a better spot to chill out and hit your reset button. Beautiful setting, very friendly sea life, quiet, and now with internet, bring your roku stick and turn on a hawaiian music station, make a mai tai and reeeeelax! Bring your mask and fins! Snorkeling in the bay and champagne pond is wonderful. There are many kinds of colorful fishes everywhere and cool and hot places are all around the protected part of the bay ( it's calm in there even when the waves are pounding the rest of the bay). A 3 foot big eye tuna hung out with us for 2 weeks, as did seven distinctive green turtles and one white one. For newbies, there are coolers on site, so take one to Pahoa on your grocery trips for the perishables, just in case you want to stop somewhere on your way home. Paolo's in Pahoa offers some of the finest Italian food anywhere, including Italy. Do Not Miss the mushroom ravioli in both the world class bolognaise and the equally etherial gorgonzola cream sauces. We usually get an extra order to go - trust me, you will thank yourself later! The little organic grocery in town is awesome as well. Hale Lokelani is a perfect retreat for writing, reading or just soaking up the beauty and doing as much or as little as you wish. The night market at the end of the road is absolutely outstanding - top notch foods, fantastic music, art you will actually want to take home, great people! Tons of stuff to do within an hour's drive, but you'll find out all too soon, if you have stocked up on food and drinks, you won't want to go anywhere! Mahalo and ENJOY!!!!!! P.S. The management is fantastic! Accessible and responsive, they take real good care of you and the place. You should too! Keep the Aloha alive!!!"

  • Love this space!

    "My family recently had a wonderful stay. The place is very comfortable and homey, well-equipped and FUN. Tons of space, great views and sounds, easy access to recreation, great library with a wide range of material of all types, whimsical decor. If I had one wish it would be to have access to laundry, but that's a mere quibble amidst all of the other ways that this place gets you into the spirit of coastal Puna. Try to stay over a Wednesday so you can hit Uncle Roberts night market - so fun! Hike on the lava shelf, visit the nearby (5 min walk) black sand beach...."
