Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for ourselves, our son and daughter in law and toddler. The location in Puako is perfect! We could swim between the rocks in a sandy section just down the beach, explore tide pools right in front, and snorkel with the numerous turtles without driving. Within driving range, a mere 5 minute drive away, are three beautiful and unique beaches -- Beach 69, Haupuna Beach, and Mauna Kai Beach (in front of the resort but open to public). Puako has a small general store, but nearby Waimea has everything else one could need, including a great brew pub -- the Big Island Brewhaus. Mostly, we enjoyed our location so much we were happy sitting on the sea wall enjoying the tropical breezes and incredible sunsets. The house is not new or fancy or remodeled, which we were fine with. There's a lot to be said for a beach bungalow! It was clean and comfortable and had most everything we needed including beach chairs, towels, etc. There is an ant issue in the kitchen which we were aware of from reading other reviews -- a very typical problem on the islands and not a big deal to us. The lawn area is perfect for a toddler and the sea wall was helpful as a border to the bay. We loved putting our chairs up on the sea wall and watching the turtles swim and come ashore each evening. We would definitely return and continue our explorations of the Big Island! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

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.
