Perfect location, comfortable stay
My daughters and I spent three nights in this delightful cottage at the beginning of December. For me, Punalu'u is a perfect location - rural, quiet and beautiful, but a short drive from amenities and attractions. The beach is as quiet and lovely as it looks in the photos, and the offshore reef makes for calm swimming even in winter, which (was definitely a consideration when our kids were little). For snorkelers, there is not a lot to see in the way of coral or fish, but I got to spend the morning swimming around with a big green sea turtle, so I couldn't have been happier. The cottage itself was comfortable, attractive, well-appointed and quiet (just the sound of waves). The owners were responsive, friendly and helpful. Great shave ice, food trucks & mom&pop store just across the street and down a bit. If you're after manicured lawns, fresh paint, resort-like service, or nightlife, I recommend Waikiki or Turtle Bay. If you're after some quiet time by the ocean in a low-key tropical paradise, this rental is a good bet! Thank you Chris and Beth!
