House & Cottage
Located at the private and quiet end of Puako Beach Drive, Mango Hale offers the opportunity to experience a stay in 'Old Hawaii.' Recently renovated, these two original beach houses have all the modern comforts and conveniences, while the relaxed and tranquil community reminds you of an earlier era. Both houses now have air conditioning.
Mango Hale (three bedroom, three bath) or Mango Cottage (one bedroom, one bath)(vrbo listing# 956147) are available individually for couples or small families, or both houses can be rented together to accommodate a larger group. The property is filled with mango, banana, and coconut trees surrounded by a lush manicured lawn and other tropical plants. The caretakers apartment is located on the garden level off the garage of the Hale. The owner lives here full time and is available for security and other assistance
Directly across the street is the popular beach access known as 'Paniau.' This natural bay has a small coral and sand beach and is well known for its easy access to one of the most premier snorkel and dive spots on the whole island. Paniau has great surf breaks in the winter months and offers easy shore fishing as well as excellent sunsets year round. The Puako General Store is located just minutes down the road and offers movie rental, groceries, and sundries.

Nothing to add to the other wonderful reviews, except that Scott accommodated our every need and wish, including a high chair, and a ping pong table! Such a relaxing place to be, with no bustle of tourism.
We stayed in Mango Cottage for one week. Nothing could have been more perfect. The location is spactulator, esp if you like to snorkel ... just walk out the door and you are there..." ta da" .... The cottage was equipped with everything .. the outdoor shower is wonderful ... the host thought of everything ... hooks, towels, beach chairs, grill, all the items needed in a kitchen ... Scott was easily available if you needed advice but very much respected your privacy. The location was perfect. We were very happy here and had a hard time leaving.
We stayed here with another family and will definitely be back. We had four adults and three kids and the Mango Hale was really perfect. We loved the large lanai, the well appointed kitchen, and the location. We started each day with a walk across the road to snorkel on the reef and ended every day with watching the sunset and the turtles. With Beach 69, Hapuna, and the Puako store (Ice Cream!) just down the road you really couldn't ask for more. It was quiet and peaceful and the owners were wonderful in every respect. I highly recommend the Mango Hale and look forward to when we can return.
I have stayed at the Mango Cottage, and the Mango Hale many times and love these houses. Located right across from a pristine snorkling and sunset spot, the full kitchens make this terrific vacationing, without any time in the car. The handsome owners live on location and provide extra towels or support if needed. Best bargain in the area with gorgeous wood floors, indoor and outdoor showers, and up to date everything.
My family of three stayed in Mango Cottage for nine days, and I'm not sure we could have found a better spot. Puako is probably my favorite place on the island for its excellent beaches and convenient amenities. The beaches near the cottage had beautiful views, and the two closest sandy beaches (one an easy walk, the other a five minute drive) are both excellent for snorkeling. Rick provided us snorkel gear and a boogie board, and even picked mangoes for us! He was a gracious and helpful host, and we are forever grateful that when our flight was cancelled due to a hurricane (what a way to end a vacation!), he and his brother graciously agreed to let us extend our stay.
The cottage itself has a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and is overall clean, bright, and charming. We really enjoyed being able to make ourselves at home, and we sat each morning before heading to the beach with a cup of coffee we made ourselves, watching the birds flutter around the lanai, and spying the occasional gecko or watching for falling mangoes! If we get to return to the big island next year, we'll certainly stay here again.
Thanks to Scott for providing a great place for our little girl who was learning to walk! Great location, excellent snorkeling and swimming, and really easy access to the Fairmont Orchid via an awesome beach trail. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy life; the outside shower being the best. We'll be back again!
