About Kerstin Preyasi Exter
We sailed to Hawaii from the South Pacific in 1991 and the Island welcomed us so much that we are still here today! We love to travel and explore new places preferably from a nice , home-like base. We used our travel experiences to create a welcoming home away from home for you. We are woodworkers by trade and have included our expertise as well as our love for detail and beauty into our properties. We love local food and cooking so our kitchen is well equipped.
Kerstin Preyasi Exter purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Kerstin Preyasi Exter chose Puako
We have other vacation rental properties in Hawi ( HomeAway #336353 and #346161) on the North end of the Big Island in the county side, but we really do enjoy our time near the beach and we love the apartment at the Sandalwood Tower and the Shores at Waikoloa because it is quiet , peaceful, with beautifully landscaped grounds and within walking distance to the beach and good dining.

My wife and I are regular visitors to the Big Island and have found our second home! We've stayed at many condos in the areas and this was one of the most comfortable ones with all the amenities. We'll be back!
Great condo and great owners!
We had a wonderful vacation at this condo. The place was well kept and beautifully decorated, and the owners were very kind and easy to work with. Would definitely stay here again.
Sanctuary in Paradise
This condo is absolutely exquisite! It is described as a Tropical Romantic Beach Side Hideaway and I certainly would agree with that description for a couple. But for me, I because I came alone to participate in the Lavaman Triathlon, I wanted a place where I could retreat to and recover, relax and be nurtured, so I would call this place a Sanctuary in Paradise. I loved everything about this condo. It is immaculate, the bed is beyond comfortable, the bathroom and walk in shower are delightful and it was great to have a half bathroom right off the entry to duck into now and then. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. I also loved the layout of the condo. I was welcomed each morning with the view of foliage from every window. Though the condo is on the ground floor and I wondered if that would feel private enough, to my surprise it felt very private. While I did see people occasionally walk by between the plants that surround the Lanai, that did not feel intrusive at all, in fact I rather liked it. I also wondered about not having a "view" but the view from the wraparound Lani is gorgeous, with a view of Palm trees and the sun rise in the mornings. I even saw a cloud rainbow one afternoon. I didn't do much beyond the Triathlon, but this condo is perfectly situated and an easy drive to A Bay for a swim, which I swam in every day, and an easy drive to other parts of the island for those that want to go exploring. And, it is a short drive or walk to shops. Lastly, I found the host, Kerstin, to be most gracious and responsive to all my inquiries. I wanted a place to eat on the Lanai and she put a simple small table with a chair so I could enjoy all my meals there. Without a doubt, I would stay here again, in a heartbeat!
We loved our week stay at the Zen Condo.
This condo was perfect for the needs of my wife and I. It has a nice bedroom 1.5 baths, fully equipped kitchen and eating area and lovely living room. Besides the usual household furniture there was a full washer and dryer. It had a veranda that was large and wrapped around on two sides. The inside and outside were well furnished and had many plants.
The condo complex was very well kept and surrounded by a golf course. The location was excellent within walking distance of several restaurants and the beach.
There are many bike trails and running paths that are available right from the condo. It is also easy to drive anywhere on the island with quick access to the highway. It is about 1/2 hour to the airport.
Lovely Waikoloa property
The condo was very nice with a private lanai. Pool and hot tub only a few steps away. Convenient location to everything in Waikoloa Resort.
The condo was comfortable and well-equipped for a long stay.
Great location near shopping and beaches. The closest free beach is across the street between the Marriott Hotel and Lava Lava Beach Club. A nice walk. Owners were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend for a long or short stay.
This is a good place for visiting anywhere on the island. Loved the lava everywhere!!!
