beautiful home located in our favorite place

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely fortunate to be able to experience this amazing house on Puako Beach. It was obvious that the owners took much pride in their exquisite design. We love the views, right on the beach. This is a place that we are intending to visit quite often, it makes us feel at home. Every day we saw turtles swimming and laying on the rocks. The snorkeling is some of the best that I ever remember. It is also such a wonderful place to walk, few hundred yards from the Puako general store and not a far stroll to the Royal Orchid, just at the end of the block and a quarter-mile on the beach. The standup paddling is second to none and it's a short drive to some of the best golf courses in the world. We love this place, thank you for giving us the opportunity to be there.

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect. It has a great island feel and you are right on the ocean and there are turtles in your front yard! We also stayed in July and didn't have any problems with cross ventilation or the bugs - although it is Hawaii, so I do know there are bugs year round. My 5 and 2 year olds had a blast finding sea shells and snorkeling in the perfect pools right outside. Make sure you check the regular weather before you go because Hawaii can be hot in the summer (obviously), but being right on the ocean is great for cooling down!

Miserable experience

  • 1 of 5
Our small family had a contract to stay at this property for 8 nights. Prior to the stay, we asked the property manager if the house would be comfortable without air conditioning, and were told that it would be cooled via cross ventilation and indoor fans. Sadly, we could only stay for 3 nights because the interior temperature was reading 87 degrees on the baby monitor during the days and well into the evenings. We had all the windows open and the fans on full blast, and couldn't cool the house below 87 degrees F. Our entire family including toddler were miserable, which is bizarre because we're from Texas and are used to the heat. Frustratingly, the weather pattern was typical July weather for the area. Additionally, both my wife and child had over 10 large insect bites each all over their bodies. It was evident that the window/door screens had some open gaps letting lots of bugs in. We will never stay at this property again.

Oceanfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The house and location are absolutely stunning. I stayed here with my family recently and had a wonderful time. The house is located on the ocean with a large front lawn spanning out onto an ocean wall. The lawn is fantastic for simply lounging around or having kids play. The ability to sit on the wall and look out at the ocean, peer down at the endless turtles and clear water is remarkable. Next to the house is little passageway to enter the water. Puako is generally very calm so you can put your snorkeling fins on and go right out and see some spectacular fish and coral as well as making your way out to see the "turtle cleaning station." Our 4 year old felt comfortable enough to try snorkeling there and our 2 year old was happy to play in the tide pools. Also, it is easy to take a kayak right out as whales, dolphins and turtles all make their way across Puako Bay.

Puako Road is quiet and friendly with plenty of small beach access points, a fantastic and pleasant general store and the ability to walk to both the Mani Lani resort or the pristine beach 69. By car, resorts and shopping is just a few minutes away so everything feels pretty easy from this location.

I was thoroughly impressed with the condition of the house.The house is centered around a huge open kitchen and wall to wall sliding glass doors in the living room that allow constant views of the ocean, endless sunlight and a constant sense of space. There are two bedrooms in the main house that are very well appointed. The furniture is marked by clean lines and beautiful woods.

The master bedroom is outstanding with a walk in bathroom with full tub, wonderful tile throughout and lovely wood floors. There is also a desk for work and an exercise room for stretching.

You can eat inside at the great table in the center of the living room or eat outside at the stunning wood table on the lawn under the stars at night.

There is also a tv room if you decide to use that which is off the main living room and works well to be part of the house but not the centerpiece.

This house is really thes best of all worlds and I can't recommend it highly enough!

Wonderful Family Home on the Ocean! Kids Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay couldn't have been more wonderful for us or our children. They loved the ocean, watching turtles, spotting whales, snorkeling in front of the house, building sand castles, spying crabs and dancing on the lawn. We loved the space, the quiet, the views (!!!) and that the house felt like home (comfortable) and vacation (the views!!!) all at the same time. It was the perfect place to bring our family together and we can't wait to go back again next year.
