The property and view are beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle. The owner is very easy to communicate with and definitely cares about the comfort of her guests. Unfortunately, we did encounter quite a bit of rain in the evenings which brought out the mosquitoes and limited the amount of time we could spend outside on the stunning lanai. Fortunately, all the windows and doors have screens so we could still enjoy the views from inside.
Stunning panoramic vistas
Great place! Spacious living area and sleeping area divided by a large pocket door that we left open, large kitchen, and wonderful outdoor shower. The deck with stunning views of the ocean was our favorite.
Two things to note -- the owner lives right next door, which was not an issue at all for us, but might be for others and, like the majority of private residences on the Big Island, it does not have air conditioning. There were ceiling fans, which cooled the unseasonably hot August weather off enough for sleeping at night.
It is always nice to hear a guest has enjoyed the home. I am a 70 yr old single woman, am very quiet and, and as noted in many previous reviews Totally respect the privacy of my guests. I usually like to meet guests once and often times do not see or interact again, unless someone wants to ask me about local knowledge etc, which I am happy to share. Its also worth noting that my garage is up the hill and therefor the parking lot and area next to the hale is allotted soley to my guests.
This home is built with one foot thick concrete walls, which not only supports the quiet but also serves to keep the interior much cooler than traditional island homes. In addition to the notable insulation quality of the walls, there are ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom as well as two additional portable fans if desired. Also the vast majority of the time there are steady light to moderate sea breezes or tradewinds to assist in natural cooling and comfort.
As these guests and other guests have noted this home is very comfortable inside and out throughout the year.
Precious Piece of Paradise
My husband and I spent 7 wonderful nights at Hale Pueo. This is a perfect spot for anyone looking for a quiet location to relax and enjoy the wonderful things that the island of Hawaii has to offer. Kalia has created a welcoming oasis that is very inviting and peaceful. We were fortunate enough to be able to pick ripe mangoes and limes from her fruit trees. The bungalow itself is impeccably clean and well appointed with all necessities provided. Snorkeling gear, beach chairs and umbrellas were also were available for the sunny beach days. The outdoor shower was our favourite! Kalia is very helpful but not intrusive. She respects your privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone looking for a unique Hawaiian getaway! Mahalo Kalia.
above all: very friendly and helpful owner, amazing view and perfect equipment
Was our best accommodation (out of four) in Hawaii. She is a very friendly and helpful owner. Sitting and dining on the veranda and having a glass of wine with this amazing view was absolutely great. Nice beaches within 20 minutes to drive. Strongly recommended!
The home is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and Kalia was a wonderfully accommodating host!
Beautiful and serene location with the best view possible!
My fiancé and I enjoyed our stay here more than we can say in words. Upon arrival, we immediately felt relaxed and joyful as we pulled up to the cozy Hale O Pueo. The view from the porch is even better than in the photos and as the wind blows you hear the gentle chirp of birds.
Kalia was helpful and welcoming while also giving us our privacy. We felt isolated in the best way possible during our stay here. The outdoor shower is truly magical and watching the sunrise every morning was one of my favorite things about our trip.
We enjoyed the beautiful beaches just 15 minutes away and took advantage of the snorkel gear provided by Kalia. I would highly recommend this home to stay in while visiting Hawaii. It made my first time on the big island that much more magical.
