You must not turn the thermostat down below the suggested temperature for that unit.

FIRE HAZARDS & PROHIBITION AGAINST EXPLOSIVES AND OPEN FIRES - The GUEST OCCUPANT hereby acknowledges that the subject property is in a fire hazard area and that occupants must use due care in handling any and all flammable substances. Moreover, no explosives shall be allowed on the property, including without limitation, fireworks. Additionally, no open fires are permitted on the property, and candles are not allowed.

MAINTENANCE ISSUES DURING YOUR STAY - Our vacation rentals are our owner’s personal homes and condos. They are generous enough to offer their private residences in paradise to travelers. Just as your home is not perfect, neither is theirs. There may be a maintenance issue that we are not aware of because we don’t live there, or something may break during your stay. We will do our best to correct the problem within 2 business days (1 business day if possible), because in Hawaii there are very limited services on the weekend. No refunds will be issued for maintenance issues unless there is a major problem and the owner agrees to it. Any refunds must be authorized by the owner, so there are no guarantees. Please know we repair everything the housekeepers and guests report to us on a consistent basis.

The manager does not offer technical support, however, we will do our best to help you. If your profession requires Internet while you stay with us, we suggest that you bring your personal hot spot to be sure of uninterrupted service. (AT&T and Verizon have the strongest signal)

We enjoyed our trip to the Condo! Very good location and the condo had everything we needed for a lovely trip to the big island.

We stayed for 5 nights as a family of five (three teenage kids) and had plenty of space (there is a second living room). The location in the vicinity of wonderful beaches (Hapuna Beach, Mauna Kea Beach) is great. We loved the view from the dining table and the balcony (ocean view, beautiful sunsets) and were lucky to see dolphins passing by and jumping out of the water! The downside for us was the kitchen: The dishes weren't clean, there was a bad smell in the cabinets, and we had a problem with ants walking around in the kitchen. The host offered to have somebody come in and wash the dishes and take care of the ants the day following our complaint. There is no AC (just ceiling fans) and it can be rather hot. Everything else was fine; all the other rooms were perfectly clean. The place is a great starting point to explore the North and the West Coast of this beautiful island. If you cross the street (not much traffic) you have access to a rocky shoreline - beaches are reachable in 5 minutes by car.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The views are spectacular- the photos really do not do justice. You can hear the waves and all you have to do is cross the street for a beautiful and uncrowded beach, that offers great snorkeling and gorgeous sunset views.

Puako is the place to be to enjoy Hawaii's slower side which means that you need to drive 15min to get to a restaurant. This condo is steps from the bay and a short drive from a world-class beach. It is right in the middle of town next to the general store which was convenient for quick meals and provisions. The condo was enormous with two living rooms, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. This was all topped off with a balcony oriented for watching sunsets over the bay. Can't wait to go back!

We loved our stay at Puako Beach! The condo is spacious (the kids loved having not only their own bedrooms, but also their own "wet bar" and hang out space). They tell me the pool was awesome too. We loved the view and the quiet beach right across the road. It was really nice to be out of the hustle-bustle of Kona. The beds were all super comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped, which was great since we ate most of our meals at home. This location is very close to Hapuna beach, where we had a blast boogie boarding and playing in the surf. Deborah was very welcoming and helpful, responding to messages and questions extraordinarily quickly! We'll be back I am sure!

This was an A++ holiday vacation and AirBNB experience for our family. Puako is lovely secluded area north of Kona with easy access to tide pools and beaches, snorkeling, watching whales and swimming with turtles. The condo is centrally located to Hawi, Waimea, Kawaihae. Lot's to see and do...or not. Unit #406 has an expansive lanai with beautiful views of the ocean, sunsets and the Kohala coast. We had a nice breeze and enjoyed the sound of surf coming through all the rooms for most of the stay. Our neighbors were polite and respectful and the building manager was on site tending to the gardens and property. The apartment had comfortable beds with nice cotton bed linens and bathrooms with yummy cotton towels for after the beach. In the rooms hung a wonderful collection of images - wood cuts and water colors from local artists. I have to admit that being next to the Puako General Store made our stay very easy. The new owners offer great wines, spirits and wonderful fresh produce and goodies from local farmers. They also offer sandwiches from the Blue Drago Restaurant. We discovered a yoga studio - Maya Yoga - located at the Mauna Lani shops. Across the way is Under The Bodhi Tree - an amazing new cafe serving beautiful and thoughtful food. Be sure to try "Bowling For Vegetables." The Blue Dragon in Kawaihae is open for dinner Th-Sun. Great local artists entertain while you eat. Stick with the fresh fish dishes. If you drive down towards Kailua-Kona - check out REBEL cafe. Jeff - Manhattan, NY

We started off spending two nights in condo 107 due to a scheduling error. It was quite nice, if a little tight for the six of us. But then we moved into 406, and were blown away. This place is huge, and amazing. One might be tempted to dismiss the small local beach as rocky and shallow, but the ridiculous amount of sea life in the tide pools made it a snorkeling dream.
