Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is, by far, the best home we have stayed in on the Big Island. This was our first time staying this far north but we LOVED it!!! Puako is quiet and far from traffic/street noise. 4 King rooms (two with outdoor showers) was perfect for the 4 couples. No kids on this trip but 4 twin beds in a loft area if needed.

The house was beautiful inside and out. Beautiful kitchen, furnishings, dining room, lanai and backyard. Less then 1/2 mile from on of the best snorkeling spots on the island - yes, even as good as City of Refuge or Captain Cooks.

Turtles on the other side of our seawall every day. Porpoise a little off shore. BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS!!!

Puako Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful time with our family enjoying the house that we have stayed at many times over the years. Everyone had enough room to be alone if they wanted, but as usual we found us all congregating on the lanai looking out for whales and turtles and enjoying wonderful sunsets. We will be back.

We have rented many vacation houses over the years but this one stands out in every way. Location, taste of furnishings, thoughtfulness regarding guests' comfort, everything is perfect. The kids loved the turtles and whales in the ocean, as well as the geckos in the garden. The adults loved the many places to curl up with a book while listening to the cooling breeze. Perfection!

Return trip to Puako

  • 5 of 5

This house is a special place for our family having stayed here off and on for many years. We could not love it more! The sound of the waves coming through the tide pools right off the house is one of a kind. The house and its amenities are superb! And we always feel well taken care of. We will definitely be back to carry on the tradition of a drink in our hand at sunset with our feet on the sea wall looking for the 'green flash'. Mahalo!!

Our Hawaii Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

All of us were impressed by the beautiful King's House and Puako beachfront location. We had 6 young children (oldest was 11 years) and they loved exploring the reef and calm waters looking at the sea life and tried their hand at fishing. The adults loved their lovely private bedrooms (4 families) with the outdoor showers. The youngsters loved sleeping together in the loft. The open beam ceilings added to the Hawaii environment by letting in the tropical breezes. The house is tastefully decorated and the gardens are well maintained. We even had a bunch of ripe bananas as a treat for breakfast! We also prepared many memorable meals in the very well-equipped kitchen with 2 refrigerators and dish washers.

We would gladly return someday and highly recommend the King's House to all our friends.
