Puako Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Four generations of the island-based Black family have owned and loved this special oasis by the sea, presided over by the oldest and largest banyan tree in Puako. A well-received addition to the beloved Beach Banyan compound, the Treehouse is a cheery upstairs studio cottage seemingly slung between the graceful banyan branches. Looking out to a mesmerizing scene of ancient lava rocks and ocean waves, the Treehouse provides a unique blend of timeless island lifestyle and modern-day creature comforts. It’s a perfect hideaway for couples looking for a dreamy oceanside retreat. Access to the ocean is next door at the public path rather than through the yard of the larger Beach Banyan on property, and easy half-minute walk.

Nothing but Relaxation (well plus turtles and the occasional whale)

  • 5 of 5
About this time of year sun starved Seattleites need a vacation - and I had been looking forward to this trip for months. I've been to all the Hawaiian islands - this being the fourth time to the Big Island - and I have to say this was the best accommodations yet!

What makes this place special? Location...Puako is laid back and quiet, just a small neighborhood that happens to have a great ocean view. If you need to go out to a restaurant every night then Kona might be better for you...but if you enjoy making your own meals, sitting on your own lanai and watching the sun set over the ocean, then this is the place. There is no road between you and the ocean, just a nice landscaped yard.

The Treehouse is also a great location for all sorts of outdoor activities. Fantastic snorkeling literally steps a way - great beaches such as Haupuna Beach or Beach 69 less than a 15 minute drive.

The Treehouse itself is spacious, light and airy - perfect for 2 people. Great natural ocean ventilation meant it was never too hot for sleeping once the sun went down. The kitchen is well stocked, plus there are beach accessories such as towels, chairs and a cooler for you to use when you venture out.

I can't wait for the next trip!

The Treehouse Studio was amazing!. Mary's customer service was above and beyond.
We loved the location of the apartment at the end of a quiet to road. We enjoyed the Whale watching, the Turtles in the Tidal pools, and the beautiful sunsets. The furnishings were very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Naran at the General Store was very welcoming. He was a great source of information on the local scene. We loved the apartment and area so much we have already booked it again for a 2015 vacation.

good location/so-so house

  • 4 of 5
Puako is a great place to stay if you prefer to be in "Old Hawaii" rather than a resort. We really enjoyed being in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to the water. However the Treehouse has a number of drawbacks so that we would not stay there again. Positives are that the house is nicely equipped, good bed, good kitchen. The major negative for us is that there is no privacy. The Treehouse windows are on the same level with 2nd floor windows of the main house on the property and the 2 houses are much closer together than I anticipated. We had to keep the blinds closed most of the time because otherwise you are on display to anyone in the main house. When you stand at the bathroom mirror, you can see the main house and I assume that anyone in the main house can see you. There was a sliding door between the kitchen and the bathroom that would have helped with privacy but unfortunately the door didn't close. The other major negative is that it's really not ocean view because of the dense vegetation in front of the Treehouse blocking the view. It's true that the ocean is directly in front of the Treehouse but there are too many trees in the way to claim ocean view. Maybe some pruning could be done and then this would really be an ocean view property. I think the Treehouse is best used by people who are in a group that is also renting the main house. I can see that it would be a lot of fun to rent both houses and have the whole property available.

Owner's Response: We appreciate comments from our guests and do take them all to heart. The morning I received this review, I went to the Treehouse to check on the doors to the bathroom and both of the two pocket doors between the kitchen/living area and bathroom were operational so I am not sure why this guest could not get one of the doors closed. I so wish I had known she had a problem with the door during her stay but did NOT hear about it despite helping her with two other small issues that were resolved immediately. It is true that the Treehouse is on the same property as a larger home (vrbo #334734) but this is clearly explained on our website, in photos and while on the phone when booking guests. This reasonably-priced location is a great value that has been enjoyed for years by many couples, but was perhaps not a good choice for this guest.

A lovely stay in a lovely place

The Treehouse provides a peaceful and relaxing spot for vacationing in Puako. We awakened to birdsong and watched sunsets from the shoreline, cocktail in hand. Dolce far niente, indeed!

Sweet spot in an ideal location!

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay at the Treehouse as part of our 3-island honeymoon. We appreciated how close we were to the ocean, a nice walk to the Mauna Lani resort for paddleboard lessons, and centrally located between Kailua-Kona and the Kohala Coast. The lava rock beach right in front of the Treehouse provided several incredibly beautiful sunsets for us during our stay. Loved the owner of the Puako General store who was warm and friendly. Appreciated the warm welcome from Mary upon our arrival. Thank you.
