Set above the Puako General Store, hub of charming beach-style hospitality, this comfortable studio is perfect for a couple wanting a Hawaii vacation “best buy.” With ocean views indoors and out and the shore itself just a two-minute walk away,there isn’t a better bargain in this delightful beach town. Savor peaceful Pacific sunsets and home-cooked dinners from your lanai, and pop downstairs to the store for coffee and pastry to enjoy the next morning’s air from above. Walk or ride the two miles of Puako Beach Drive or explore the beach side route, where our beloved honu (endangered sea turtles) sun themselves on the lava-rock outcroppings. Whales breach and tend their young during their wintertime sojourn to our warm waters, providing breath-taking moments. In addition, world-renowned beaches are a five-minute drive away.

Guest Reviews

“The studio above the General Store was extremely clean and very convenient. It’s located right between two beach access sites. Having access to the store is perfect. The outside porch looks over the road to the beach and is a great way to relax and enjoy the ocean breezes. Mary and her team were easy to reach and very hospitable.”


“This is an amazing property. It was private, quiet, clean, and the staff were very accommodating. The location was perfect, away from all the resorts and close to the best beaches on the big island. I highly recommend this location to everyone.”


“Comfortable, clean, great location. We had fun watching folks come and go from the General Store; it really felt like we were part of the neighbourhood. There are terrific little beaches nearby which are quiet, and really great snorkeling within 5 minutes walk. The kitchen had good equipment to cook with; even the knives were substantial and sharp (a rarity for a vacation rental, and, to us, a mark of a really well stocked and appointed place). We are contemplating renting the place again if we come back; this place really is comfortable, in a great (read: quiet) neighbourhood, and not your typical vacation resort experience. We heartily recommend it.”


“The location was excellent just above the General Store. We were close to several small beaches we could walk to from our unit. We were also centrally located to all of the activities we wanted to do during our stay on the island. There was a nice shopping plaza several miles away with a grocery store and dinning options.”
