As Advertised....beautiful place and friendly host.

  • 5 of 5

I concur with the other reviewers, without repeating all the wonderful things about this cottage. I would just add that owner Frank, who resides in the waterfront property behind the cottage, was extremely mindful of our privacy. We had a couple very nice conversations and he was very laid back and down to earth. He teaches yoga and does competitive triathlon training, etc. etc.... I would encourage Frank to put his picture and a little something about himself on this review website. Very nice guy!! THE place to stay in Puako.

True relaxation can be found here!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Frank for opening up this lovely cottage to guests! We spent 6 nights here and loved the open space the cottage offers.I loved the bathroom with it's gorgeous etched glass shower and floor to ceiling mirror and lots of counter and storage space. I love how the cottage has an abundance of natural light and the birds wake you in the morning with their song. It's very private and an excellent location close to several of the best beaches on the island. You will see turtles and great sunsets and Puako beach daily. You can't go wrong staying here..the weather is the best on the island, it's quiet and not commercial and it's centrally located to anything you may need. I plan to come back for a longer stay soon! Oh and the cottage is full of Frank's art work..you will want to take one home.

Relaxation of Your Dreams

  • 5 of 5

The perfect Hawaiian experience for anyone who desires quiet, privacy and the serenity of Puako's quaint location. Cool evening breezes for restful sleep---clean and well-maintained accomodations---beautiful mature trees filled with song birds---gecko visits are charming and entertaining. A 3-minute stroll to the beach access delights you with beautiful sunsets and sea turtle sightings. Everything from grocery stores to world-class retaurants are within a 10-minute drive. Highly recommend this cottage to family and friends who seek an escape from life's hustle and bustle.

Peace and beauty

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing experience! We love this little private cottage. We felt very comfortable and it had everything we needed and more. We slept with the windows open. The air was fresh and everything smelled good! We could drink the water. Wandering in the neighborhood we felt safe and happy.

We've been to lots of nice high end places and done fun things, but staying at the cottage truly allowed us to truly. No stress, just beauty and nature surrounding us. The sounds of the waves crashing were really peaceful. Magnificent turtles were everywhere. Wild dragon fruit just waiting to be picked and eaten. What more can we say! It was so hard coming home. We will be back and highly recommend this cottage!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

What you see in the ad is exactly what you get.

Perfect for my husband and I to "get away"

This cottage was as comfortable to be in as if I were in my own home.

Great location to nearby snorkel sights, great views short walk away.

Peace and tranquility is what you will find here.

Would definitely stay here in the future
