What makes this Cottage unique
Other than LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION, I would say;The fact that the property had an original !940's Beach cottage which was worth saving and we wanted to continue giving folks a chance to enjoy this incredible area and in the style of an earlier Hawaii that helped to make this a special choice for us Mahalo David & Kim

Charming and idyllic...look forward to returning again!
My family had a wonderful time at the cottage...we couldn't have imagined anything better! David and Kim were wonderful hosts and supplied everything we needed to fully enjoy Puako...snorkels, beach chairs, bikes, kayak, yoga mats, etc...and gave us excellent recommendations on where to go and what to do. We are looking forward to making this an annual trip!
Mellow and memorable. Authentic and super comfy. David is a great host and Puako is the place to be!
What a great stay. David is an awesome host. Super accessible and also totally respectful of privacy. After our "nickel" tour, he left us totally alone. Except he was so fun and full of good info we wound up asking for a couple hang outs! Rare for us cause we are a private couple by nature.
The place is perfect. Amenities abound. Snorkeling gear and boogie boards. Great outdoor gas grill on the private Lanai. And two beach bikes! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to move right in and cook all your meals. Bedding, towels and beach towels all clean and plentiful. Super comfy bed. And clean, clean, clean. We are from Seattle and run a 5-star Airbnb ourselves, so our standards are high. Rest assured they were met! David's place felt totally authentic. We fit right in to the surroundings, felt taken care of and welcomed. Highly recommend!
Beautiful and peaceful
This property is across the street from the ocean where we saw turtles and whales. Cottage has been decorated with a classic vintage Hawaiian feel. Very clean and really well equipped inside and out. 👍🏻👍🏻
A lovely little restored 1940s beach cottage in beautiful condition.
The property was immaculate and well stocked with all the beach and snorkeling equipment you will need. There was also spices and basic food and supplies.
Not well seen from the road this "cottage" has it all! Completely stocked medicine chest, not just a first aid kit. Kitchen with everything and more to cook, with coffee maker, espresso make coffee grinder. All the condiments you need or visit the herb garden for fresh Avocado, liliqoi, rosemary, oregano. The beach with turtles, tide pools for wading and snorkeling just a short walk away or drive a beach cruiser bicycle. Super sunsets every night ,occasional whales just offshore. Comfortable furnishings, interesting artwork throught the house. Good for a family if the kids are very well behaved and respectful of the house and contents. Front and back outside eating areas or dine in kitchen. Great restaurants only a 15 minute ride, uber available. Unobtrusive hosts David and Kim live in the back separate house available to answer questions and recommend beaches, restaurants. Private parking space. My wife and I had a very wonderful time and will return again.
Delightful house and gardens.
The pictures shown here do not do this place justice!
We really couldn't have found a better place for our little get away. Two friends – a writer and an artist. We spent tons of time on the deck in the morning drinking coffee, drawing and writing; and on the lanai in the evenings, eating delicious meals and enjoying gecko watching. As cooks, we appreciated the well stocked kitchen with every appliance we needed at our finger tips. Great washer and dryer plus clothes lines. Outdoor shower (we never used the one in the bathroom). Big bath towels and beach towels. Two great cruising bikes. When I told David I needed a helmet before I could ride, one appeared on the lanai the next morning. Asked if they had yoga matts? They found some for us. But what I loved most was sleeping with the doors and windows open to the warm nights and the subtle breeze (two women and we felt completely safe).
Beds are comfortable with down comforters, four different types of pillows on each bed. Tons of hangers. A water filter so we didn't have to buy bottled water!!! A composting bucket so the house smelled fresh because the compost didn't go in the trash.
I believe they have thought of everything to make their guests happy and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this house – eloquently delightful!
Puako is the only ocean side residential community on the Kohala Coast. It is still a well kept secret of original cottages and large estate homes nestled on the coastline where all of the major 5 star resorts have been built. Small beaches and petroglyph field within walking distance. Sheltered reef for snorkeling, shore diving, swimming, under water photography.
