    Jan and Johnny have created a comfortable vacation home in a wonderful location. We loved the peace and quiet. The ocean across the street. The sunsets. The lanai. And great access to other nearby beaches that were better for swimming. The bikes were also a very welcome addition for nearby travels. Planning a return trip already!

    We loved staying at Puako Hau Hana, great location to get away from it all. Listing was as advertised and we will definatley return. Great for 2 couples who are looking to enjoy the Kohalo coast and not be at a resort.

    Convenient beautiful location, gorgeous beach trails to a calm sorrel in the lagoon, turtles 🐢 sleeping on the beach across the street, nice restaurants on the beach within walking distance, friendly and helpful ownership, nice bath towels, and restful sleep.

    First time in the area. Loved the proximity to the elements. Many beaches within walking distance, turtles, fine snorkeling, historic sites , and a most comfortable home to return to after a busy day! Bed was super comfy and just a titch of AC at night as it was quite warm.

    The location of this home is unbeatable! We had a wonderful time with tide pools in the a.m. and watching the sea turtles & sunsets every evening just steps from the house, then laying on the beach watching shooting stars after the sun went down. House very comfortable, hosts were friendly when they responded Why not 5 stars? Upon arrival we found that the host family lives on the upper level of this house which was not at all advertised in the listing. We specifically filter for private homes when vacationing and paid a premium price over a condo for that privacy. Initially we planned to overlook it but after 2 days of being awoken by very loud footsteps and noises above our bedroom before 7a.m. I messaged the host to let them know we were unhappy about it. I requested a possible small partial refund for the inaccurate listing/inconvenience of being woken up, but that at a minimum advised them to change the listing and please take extra care to be very quiet the following morning until at least after 8am (we would be flying out that day and needed to sleep in a little to try to adjust back to our time zone). Not only did I never receive a response, but that evening they were using power tools upstairs even beyond 10pm and yet again woke us up walking around before 7am the next morning. Additionally, there was a sugar ant issue in the kitchen, only 2 portable cooktop burners (the listing also says there is an oven but it's a portable countertop one) so don't plan on cooking b

    Amazing location, comfortable and quiet. Great beds, space to read and hangout. Great air circulation- fans and air conditioning in the bedrooms.

    We’ve been coming to stay at this Puako Beach rental for over 20 years now, and it never disappoints. The location, cleanliness and true aloha vibe run strong in this sweet cottage and quiet little town. The home hosts, Jan and Johnny, are stupendous folks and attentive to any questions or concerns you might have. The neighbors are wonderful too. Whether you are simply interested in as much beach time as possible or if you’re more intrepid and want to explore this diverse island, it’s all easily done from Puako with day trips to take in all the fun stuff to see and do here on Big Island.

    The house was clean and well stocked. Cooking without a stove was not a problem. Jan and Johnny were great to work with. Thanks for sharing your property.

    Beautiful, tranquil home in a splendid part of Puako. Owners lived in upstairs and were very generous with loans of ocean gear and suggestions of places to visit.
