Punaluu Condo Rental Photos and Description
Beautiful condo with excellent ocean views from the downstairs lanai and also the upstairs master suite. The grounds are beautifully manicured & provide a pool, hot tub & BBQ''s for your enjoyment. There is a tennis court across the street & golf is just around the corner. This property is located half way between Hilo and Kona making it easy to travel and see all the things on both sides of the Island. Volcano National Park is only 30 minutes away. The area is remote with 90 miles of undeveloped coast line in the Kau District. Near by towns of Na'alehu & Ocean View have grocery stores and restaurants. There are farmer's markets in Na'alehu & Hilo on Wednesdays & Saturdays. Kona also has farmer's markets. Fresh fruits, vegetables, locally grown and roasted coffee and artisan crafts await you at the local farmer's markets. Take a short walk to the Black Sand Beach and you can watch the green sea turtles frolic in the ocean or warm themselves on the sand. South Point and the Green Sand Beach are about a 25 minute drive. At South Point you can watch the fishermen and also see the more adventurous jump off the cliff into the ocean. A 2 mile walk will reward you with the sight of the Green Sand Beach. The path there is very rough and not recommended for vehicles. However, there are some people who have trucks and jeeps who will drive you there for a minimal fee. A visit to Volcano National Park is a must. We suggest visiting during the day to explore the park and walk through the lava tubes and then stay until dark to experience the beauty of the glowing volcano. Volcano House (a hotel, restaurant, bar & gift shop) turns 'lights out' after dark to you can view the glowing of the volcano. There is also a visitors center you can go to and be up close & personal with the volcano. There is such a wide variety of things to do, everyone will be pleased. You can explore, shop, golf, hike, go deep sea fishing, whale watch, or just relax & read a book. It's all up to you. The property is
- children welcome
- pets not allowed

About Thelma Hughes
We drove past this property 19 years ago and fell in love with it. We returned in 2005 for a vacation and have returned every year since staying longer each time. We love the peace & quiet of the property and the friendly aloha spirit found here. We have visited many vacation spots, but this one is our favorite. It has become a part of our lives. We hate to leave & can't wait to get back each year. This is a little piece of paradise and we are happy to be able to share it with others.
