LOVED OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks in January 2014 and were very sad to leave. The property was perfect for our family of four (2 adults, 2 girls age 5 &9), plus my parents who stayed in the suite. My 5 year old built a fort out of spare mattresses which stayed up our whole visit, there was that much room. The bed in the front room was wonderful for waking up and being able to see the surf, and the back bedroom was quiet and spacious. It was not fancy and we were completely happy with that. Everything was clean and comfortable. The owners were immediately helpful if we needed anything. We ate our cereal in the morning at the picnic tables out front, and often ate our dinner out there too, or at the table on the deck in front of the suite. It is a perfect spot for sunsets, and the turtles were amazing. The store was an easy stroll down the road for basics, or the shopping centre 20 min drive away for everything else. We stocked up on fruit and veggies in Kona at the market. (Good local organic milk at the Puako store for the same price we pay on Vancouver Island.) We loved how close the big sandy beaches were, 5 min drive to beach 69 and to Hapuna beach, less than 10 mins to Mauna Lea, and not much more to Spencer Beach park which was calm when the waves were big. We spent a lot of time just hanging out in front of the house, the location is gorgeous.
Thank you Duke and Miriam and we hope to see you again!

A MOST ENJOYABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
As noted before it's not for everyone, but it certainly was for us--not fancy but clean and well-maintained and on a beautiful property right on the ocean. There were 3 beds and plenty of floor mats, so you could house a large group easily, especially with children. The only potential drawback is that the house is L-shaped around the studio, and if the 2 units are rented by people who don't know each other it can feel less private and there could perhaps be problems with noise. However, we had no problems when a single person stayed in the studio while we rented the house.

You can just walk out the door for snorkeling, kayaking and turtle-watching, and we also rode bikes everywhere. It's an easy drive to the best Big Island beaches and resorts, the observatories on Mauna Kea, Hawi, and the ranch country. We loved being able just to sit on the beach every evening and watch the sunset.

Duke was an excellent and very helpful host, doing all he could to make our stay fun and successful. We really liked that he lives right there because we felt everything was safe even when we were gone.

We are certainly hoping to return for another vacation here in the future.

WONDERFUL KAMAAINA BEACH HOME WITH A WONDERFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Puako in October with two other families at this wonderful home operated by Duke. The home was extremely spacious with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and really had all the necessities that we needed to enjoy our stay. If you want luxury, then this place isn't for you, but if you want to experience a true Hawaiian beach home, the way I remember as a local growing up, staying at friends' homes, with all the basics that you need, then this is it. The house was fully equipped for cooking for large groups with large pots and pans. The two bedroom side of the house, had a full sized refrigerator and an extra freezer. The studio had a second full sized refrigerator.

The best thing about this home (besides the owner Duke of course) is it's location. The home has a large backyard, with some sand, and wonderful tidepools out front. Our children enjoyed playing with the hermit crabs, and seeing turtles every day just steps from the backyard. Of our kids were very sad to leave and want to come back again. We would really like to extend our heartfelt thanks and aloha to Duke for allowing our group to stay and look forward to booking his home again hopefully annually!

PERFECT.

  • 5 of 5
What to say that hasn't been said already? We've stayed there twice in the past 2 years, first by ourselves (2 adults 2 kids) in the larger house. Then this year we brought our best friends and their kids (4 adults 4 kids total) and rented both the large house and the studio. It was amazing. As others have said if you're looking for oplulence this isn't it. If you're looking for a comfortable, spacious(for the larger place) quaint house with an unbelievable location in Puako, owned by a genuinely nice guy- you've found it. The studio has a wonderful vibe- the bedroom and the main living area are all fronted by windows that are literally like 30 feet from the tidepools. The main house has a bed and the main living area all facing the beach too. The little bit of grass and beach out front, and the tidepools are fantastic if you have kids older than toddlers. Our oldest kids spent hours exploring the tidepools. If you're a snorkeler/diver the reef right off the back yard is spectacular. Grill your fish on the grill out back and then eat it while watching the sunset from the dining table. The house is a great base for adventures and is a quick drive to some of the best beaches in Hawaii, including our favorite, Mauna Kea. Duke is a solid guy, easy to deal with and has a knack for not being around when you want privacy, but being around when you want to chat about the area, the weather, where to get good fish etc. We love this place and will stay here many more times. Mahalo Duke.

A CHARMING STAY ON THE BIG ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
This lovely spot was just what my family needed (ages 8 months to 62). The friendly turtles, tide pools, snorkeling, close sandy beaches... all wonderful. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, meals on the picnic tables overlooking the ocean, beautiful sunsets every evening and the sound of ocean waves breaking. We rented both the home and studio for our group of 9. The house is 'old Hawaiian' which we prefer over remodeled fancy houses or sterile condominiums. A lovely place to relax and enjoy the spirit of Hawaii.

GREAT LOCATION FOR A LAID BACK BEACHFRONT TRIP

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with our stay at Duke's home. We stayed in the studio. It is relatively small but has a great lanai with a picnic table and fantastic sunset views. This is not for those seeking an elegant, fancy vacation spot. But if you value beachfront, laid back, Hawaii-style vacations, this is *the* place for you. Duke is friendly and even though this and the next door one-bedroom apartment are additions to his house, the whole time there felt sufficiently private and homey to make it a 5 star experience.
