Quiet, Convenient Condo - great value vacation

  • 4 of 5
Puako is my idea of a perfect place to stay. It's small and charming, with a quaint country store and walkable streets. Why stay in a cookie cutter resort? This condo is typical of the time it was built, unpretentious and comfortable. Although unit is on the first floor, it is very quiet and the shrubs shield the lanai so it doesn't feel exposed (just ask the gekkos). Having 2 full bathrooms is a big plus. The small galley style kitchen is well equipped (I'd love to see a liquid measuring cup,but that's just me). The condo has a closet of assorted beach gear to use and lots of towels. The washer & dryer came in handy and we used the gas grill daily. Bedrooms all have ceiling fans. (NOTE: keeping sliding doors and entry door open allows air to flow freely and condo stays cool ) The condo bldg has a great pool or you could walk a few minutes to access Puako bay for swimming and snorkeling. The building has recycling bins (yeah!! - I love to recycle - feels like home) Bonus feature: building has its own lemon, lime, and grapefruit trees and we were lucky enough to get some of the fruit.

Puako is centrally located and we easily drove up and down the coast for touring , beaching (Hapuna and A' beach), and shopping. I highly recommend going to the local fish market in Kawaihae ( on Hgwy 270, about a 10 minute drive) and across the street from the fish market is Avenue Shave Ice, the BEST shave ice we found on the island.

The condo owner is very nice to work with and takes time to make sure instructions and everything are in order. She even called me by phone to answer my questions directly rather than play tag with email. It's chancey to rent off the web, but Karen is trustworthy.

I'm saving my pennies to go back there.

Perfect place for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at many of the units at the Puako Beach Condos. This one was certainly excellently equipped! The free wi-fi was a huge plus. First floor convenience was also nice. So easy to run next door to the market or across the street to the beach access. Most evenings we walked over to watch the sunset, taking along some snacks. Although Mahukona has excellent snorkeling opportunities, nothing can beat the convenience of walking across the street and into a lovely semi-protected area. After several days, we knew exactly where we'd find each kind of fish.

Twice we drove to the end of Puako Drive and watched the surfers. While walking along the beach, we also discovered an ancient petroglyph.

Also, the owner was very quick to answer any questions we had before we traveled, and so kind.

Best value & location!!

We just recently returned to the mainland after a week's stay at Karen's condo in Puako. We have stayed at this complex before, but this was our first time in this unit. We loved it here! So clean & comfortable & NO BUGS!! The kitchen is well-equipped with anything you may need & the general store next door is very handy. We especially appreciated all the portable fans available since the weather was very humid that week. The location is awesome: you can either walk to the sandy beach, or the tidepool beach with all the turtles, crabs, fish, etc. etc. My husband took our daughter & son-in-law snorkeling every morning at Beach 69. They had flown out from NYC to join us for their yearly vacation and love Puako. We barbecued fish from the Kawaihae fish market a couple times which was a real treat. We also took advantage of the bananas & limes available on the grounds-an added plus!! The furniture & beds are very comfortable. We all felt very much at home. Karen, the owner, was great to work with; very responsive & thorough. We found the condo instructions to be very common sense & reasonable. We will most definitely return. Mahalo!!

Great location, friendly community, good value!

  • 4 of 5
Choosing Puako when I had never visited the Big Island was such a find! I am not a resort person, but wanted a comfortable place to stay. I am grateful that I chose Karen's place. The condo itself is clean, well kept, has comfortable beds, is cool in the day and at night and most importantly is in Puako. Puako is a lovely little community with the "aloha spirit". Everyone I met in the condo was friendly. This is not a beachfront condo, but we were just a minute's walk from the beach entrance which lead us to the rocky shoreline that was inhabited by so many turtles! The little beach 69, a few minutes drive down the road was lovely- trees for shade, sandy areas for lounging and swimming, and easy access to the coral reef with tons of fish for snorkelling. The grounds of the condo have fruit trees that we snacked from, herbs for cooking. Puako does not have a restaurant to walk to but the general store (with friendly, welcoming owners) has a little of everything- lots of good quality food, organics too. With all the farmer's markets, a nearby fish market in Kawaihae, it is really easy to make great meals. The kitchen in the condo has everything you need, right down to a coffee grinder!

Watching the Kona Ironman World Championship 2013

I enjoyed this place so much because it was clean, quiet, had everything I needed. Easy to get to it on the first floor. The bed were so comfortable, the linens and the pillows. You walk to the beach 2 minutes and you get to watch the honus (turtles) sleeping on the beach. I will stay here again. Thank you to the owners. Great place.

Owner's Response: We love to hear all the positive comments our guest have to say after
staying in our condo. It's not only a couple minutes walk across to the beach, where the sea turtles bask on the beach, but minutes to almost all the things you'll need. Shopping, dining, several major resorts, golf,
whatever you feel like doing.
Our comfortable beds with soft linens, make sleeping a joy, and the well stocked kitchen, easy to cook in. Of course, if you prefer grilling, we have the gas grill on the lanai, and you can also enjoy dining on the
table set there. We pride ourselves on clean, comfortable, surroundings for all your comforts and needs.
Our guests keep coming back, and we couldn't be happier!
Warm Aloha,
Karen

LOVED this!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful vacation! The condo was perfect for us, and had everything we needed. We cooked many of our meals at the condo, and loved having the grill. There is a wonderful fish market down HWY 19 to the left, and then left again--we got Ahi caught that morning and cooked it that evening for dinner. The condo had all we needed to cook great meals, and if we needed a quick ingredient we ran next door to the cute little beach store.

We loved the charming little town of Puako, and walked to the tide pools every day. That was our favorite part of the vacation. We saw enormous sea turtles every day. We also saw schools of fish (cute little stiped ones), sea cucumber, hundreds of hermit crabs, regular crabs, sea slugs, and two octopus. It was awesome. At night we kept our windows open so we could hear the tide.

We collected shells and coral from the tide pools. My daughter said, "you know you're at a good beach when the shells you collect stand up and walk away."

There are 2 beaches just up the road--69, and Hapuna. 69 has trees, and shade, and is very relaxing with little birds fluttering about. Hapuna is great to boogie board. We used the boards from the condo (thank you for having them available!) and we also took the snorkel equipment. It was awesome.

We drove into Kona a couple of time, and shopped, ate shave ice, and poked around. It was fun, but I really liked heading back to Puako where it was so quiet and peaceful.

We swam in the pool, and had it to ourselves each time. After a long day at the beach, my kids still wanted to swim, and so my hubby and I relaxed with a book while watching them splash about.

We also loved the fruit hanging right out the back door--mangoes and bananas. My kids searched for geckos all around the place, and took dozens of great photos of geckos and flowers right at the condo.

We will absolutely stay at the condo again. We had a wonderful vacation. The only thing I'll change about our next trip is we'll stay longer. It sure was hard to leave.

Owner's Response: We love all our Special Guests to have a great time, and fabulous vacation in Puako and on the Big Island of Hawaii. We try to provide all the ammendies that they will need to do just that, including everything they will need for a great day at our beautiful Beaches, so all they have to
do is enjoy their time there! It's also very nice to have the pools available
to swim if you don't want to go to the beach sometimes, like in the evening.
We love to hear from our guests all their positive feedback, and how much they enjoyed our condo, the great location across from the beach, and how peaceful, quiet, and relaxing their vacation time was for them.
They all want to stay longer, and so many return year after year, staying longer with each visit as well! We also give great discounted rates for those that make return visits, to show our great appreciation and Aloha Spirit. Mahalo for your great review.

With Warm Aloha,
Karen

Car: recommended

Puako Beach is about 30 miles from Kailua Kona, 25 miles from the Kona Airport, on the beautiful Kahala Coastline. The home of The Parker Ranch, the town of Waimea, is only 12 miles up the hill, where there are great restaurants, two major grocery stores, and many other shops and stores. From Waimea, go another 20 miles or so, and you can be at Waipio Valley, a breathtakingly beautiful tourist attraction, with waterfalls, and a Black sand beach. Hapuna Beach, one of the top 10 beaches in the world, is two miles away from Puako Beach. A day trip to the Volcano National Park, home of the most active volcano in the world, is about 100 miles from Puako

Beach. There are hundreds of excellent dining places both expensive and reasonable at any of the major resorts within a 10 mile drive, as well as world-class golf courses, luaus, and shopping.
