    The property is immaculately detailed from appliances to artwork to furnishings. Being tucked into its own little lot across from the shoreline provides the ability to enjoy the Big Island while minimizing exposure to the large tourist crowd. It is perfectly sized for a couple! We thoroughly enjoyed barbecuing fresh fish daily on the grill and relaxed to stars at night. Wonderfully relaxing!!!

    Great location if you want to be near the beach! Puako has several beach access points, each with their own charm for hanging by the water - a lot of Lava/coral so do not expect "swimming beaches". Head to the end of the road to the park for fabulous sunsets! House was as it looked - newly remodeled and quite charming. As the photos indicate, the bedroom is completely open to the living room. Furniture is not the most comfortable and a dresser would be handy. The location does not allow for much of a breeze so the AC is very handy. House was outfitted nicely - kitchen utensils, beach chairs, etc. Also, plenty of soap, tp, etc for our 2-week stay. Enjoy!
