PUAKO BEACHFRONT HOUSE WITH BIG LAWN

Puako House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

'Honu Kai'

Honu Kai means turtle waters. We chose this name for the property because of the abundance of green sea turtles that reside in the waters surrounding Honu Kai and the Kohala Coast.

This traditional style, two-bedroom, two-bath, Hawaiian, beach cottage comfortably sleeps five people and there are 3 twin 'punees' in the living area for extras. The house has a spacious living area which separates the two bedrooms for privacy. There is a deck with outdoor dining table and large seating area to hang out

The art work and authentic Hawaiian charm create an ambiance which is warm and relaxing. Honu Kai has steps to the ocean and tide pools where you can snorkel and dive in some of the best conditions in Hawaii.

This Puako oceanfront location boasts some of the most spectacular views along the Kohala Coast and great sunsets. A panoramic view reveals an endless ocean in front of the house and Mauna Kea mountain views behind the property.

For those looking for more adventure the Kohala Coast is a paradise for ocean-related activities, fine dining, golf and world class spa facilities.

Come enjoy the 'real Hawaii' at Honu Kai. Thank you for choosing Honu Kai as your Big Island vacation destination. We are sure that it will be a vacation that will not be forgotten as many of our guests return to Honu Kai year after year!

WE NOW HAVE WIFI! Check your email while you watch the whales!

Honu Kai has been in our family for two generations and is a very special place for us.

This is one of the bet snorkeling spots in Puako...some say Puako is the best diving/snorkeling area in the Hawaiian Islands. There is a channel through the tide pools which takes you right out to the reef. We love the quality relaxation time here. Honu Kai is a retreat for us!

Wow- what a spectacular place!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay here THOROUGHLY! Complete relaxation with no worries or headaches...can't beat the ocean air and sound of the surf as you wake up. Puako is a very special place- somewhere you can leave all your troubles behind and just soak up the sun-kissed, salt-infused energy, and a calm you've never felt in your life. This house encompasses all of those things and also makes you feel at home, wherever home may be.

very misleading all the way around

  • 1 of 5
Here are the facts about this rental
Over ran with MICE, COCKROACHS and ANTS.
These photos must of been taken YEARS ago.
Dingy and dirty, the owners have put nothing back into this place.
Mattress in the "master suite" was dirty with huge tears in the box spring, there were mice in the closet and cockroachs on the bed.
We've rented "rustic" Puako homes before but this was the absolute worst.
We left and aloha Debbie refunded the rest of our money. We shook out all of our clothes check the bags for stowaways and GOT OUT.
Shame on aloha Debbie and the owners of this rental!

Owner's Response: We have many very happy guests at this property, but it is true that it is not for everybody. The pictures of this property are recent. It is a older home with out any major upgrades. The owners have preserved the authentic Hawaiian style feeling of Puako in this property. It has a lot of charm and the location is unbeatable! We do maintain a monthly pest control service and in this instance put an emergency call in to the pest control man, who responded immediately. We are in the tropics and in a constant battle to keep the pests out. Leaving the screen doors closed is a must! It was unfortunate that these guests were not happy with their choice of vacation rentals. We did refund their rent and wished them a wonderful stay on the island. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can't please everyone. We continue to work hard to keep our property clean and well maintained so that our happy customers keep coming back!

A little piece of heaven on the tidepools of Puako

  • 5 of 5
In April of this year, my boyfriend and I spent a week in Puako at this house. The house was spacious, comfortable, and wonderfully located near Hapuna, which is one of our favorite beaches in the world. The amenities at the house are great - lots of beach gear, kitchen equipment, and comfortable places to nap. The house itself is a throwback to old Hawaii -- it's not new or modern, but clean, cozy and charming. (Well, it's clean so long as you put away your food / cocktail glasses each night! Otherwise, beware of the ants.)

Each morning it was a pure delight to wake up to the sound of the ocean, brew a pot of Kona coffee, and sit on the sea wall in the backyard as the light turns golden. Walking out amongst the tide pools was one of my very favorite things to do -- so many beautiful honu and other sea creatures to watch as the sun warms the island. And the sunsets were just brilliant.

So highly recommended. Next time, we'll bring friends and share the magic.

Paradise Personified!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our wonderful week at Honu Kai in Puako, one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. This was our annual family Christmas beach holiday, which we have previously spent in Miami South Beach, Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Rico, Akumall Mexico and St. John USVI. Although we were 3 couples - ourselves and our 2 sons and girlfriend and wife - there was plenty of room for either privacy or family togetherness and this was our favorite rental of all. The fact that the house is so wide (not narrow like nearly every condo) and the yard is so huge, you have an incredible view of the ocean and feel like like you are the only ones for miles around. We especially enjoyed sitting on the little wall, watching the ubiquitous whales and turtles as well as enjoying the fantastic sunsets with glasses of wine. There were so many windows that there was always a pleasant breeze and the soothing sound of ocean waves. Meals on the porch were memorable and we enjoyed snorkeling with the turtles and fish right in front of the house. This is a comfortable house, more like your parents lake cottage than a sophisticated modern home and we loved the comfortable, casual decor but it it would not be for anyone who prefers new and modern. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well equipped but there were some problems with ants if any food was left out. After this, our group moved to a condo right on the beach in Kailua-Kona and although it was very nice, we definitely missed Honu Kai.
The people at Aloha Debbie were very friendly and helpful when there was an unavoidable problem with the house which delayed our check-in date and we highly recommend this company. We are already looking ahead for when we can return to the Big Island and we will definitely want to return to Honu Kai!

A Favorite

  • 5 of 5
Although I live in Hilo on the other side of the island, my mainland family and I have been enjoying this very special place for many, many years. The grandkids love the big front lawn and wandering along the shoreline looking for treasures. Good snorkeling, too, when the waves are calm. The kitchen is full of "stuff" so you can create, when the urge hits you, your own feasts. The grandkids love making cookies. The Puako Store, too, has a wonderful selection of foods you wouldn't expect to find in a country store.

Experience of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about what a wonderful trip my family and I had staying at your beautiful home! From the moment we arrived in Puako we were in love. The sea turtles are incredible they come right on to the beach and rocks in front of the house. My wife and I love to dive and the reef and fish life in Puako is some of the best I've ever seen. My kids spent everyday out in the tide pools exploring and finding shells, they were in heaven. Watching the whales from the deck while eating breakfast made my trip and sitting out on the seawall at night was another unforgettable experience, just relaxing and watching the beautiful sunsets, I'll never forget our trip and can't wait to go back next year!!!
