My husband and I stayed in the Vintage Cottage for 10 day over June/July. This is our 4th visit to the Big Island, but our first time staying in Puako. We will never stay outside of this fabulous little community again. The area itself is quiet, made up mostly of local residents. There are several great beach access points along the road that offer wonderful sunsets and turtle watching. The Vintage cottage was the perfect place for us to stay. The house itself is adorable, very thoughtfully furnished, impeccably clean, and outfitted with everything you could possibly need. We made wonderful meals daily in the well equipped kitchen, slept peacefully every night in the comfortable king sized bed. And the best part was coming home from a great day at the beach and showering off in the outdoor shower. It was fully stocked with delicious smelling products like coconut & mango shampoo’s. We never even used the indoor tub or shower. The experience was grand, and was a daily treat. We have found our new “place to stay” on the Big Island. We look forward to returning again next year! Thank you Cynthia & John for providing us with the perfect place to rest and relax. Mahalo!
