It is not possible to write the same sort of review for a unit at Pat's at Punalu'u as one might for a hotel because the units (a great many) are privately owned by many different people. This is the sort of place to stay if one does not wish to spend too much money, is interested in exploring the... More

Pats at Punaluu is a great place to stay with a family. Located near the North Shore it's easy to go either direction and find great places to visit. Well maintained condo on a private beach. Ours was 1 bedroom with a nice fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, living room area with pull out couch bed. They also brought... More

As first time vacationers to Hawaii we booked a place unseen that we thought looked promising. Upon arrival, the conditions were so bad we asked for our money back, they refused, so we walked away and got a motel. We became aware of Pats via some friends and called for help in finding someplace to stay for the rest of... More

Family stayed March 2015. Betty (property manager) was was quick to reply to emails/questions and returned the deposit in a timely manner. Stayed in #510 (VRBO 99196) - all units are individually owned/decorated/furnished. As for the condo...to us, the unit and complex seemed tired and worn. Security cameras all around the complex as well as security stationed overlooking the parking... More

We were taken away by what we found! We stayed in Unit 312 and it was perfect. We had a great beach front view and watched several sun rises that were breath taking. The kitchen proved to be more then needed as we cooked many meals and enjoyed a beautiful lanai to eat every meal on. The bedroom was roomy... More

This review is for Unit 605. All of the units are different, and as many have cautioned, you should choose carefully. By far the best thing about the condo is the view of the sea. It can be magical. At night, the full moon's reflection on the water is the stuff of postcards. You will have the beach practically to... More

My fiance and I stayed in Unit 312 with Betty of Paradise by The Sea Vacation Rentals. Our expectations were set high, based on the pictures she sent us. We wanted to rent a specific unit but that it was unavailable. The condo 312, wasn't listed on VRBO, but based on the pictures she sent us, again, we THOUGHT 312... More

We stayed at Unit K-2 managed by Theresa and available through AirBnB. The unit is good. It has everything you need, but it is basic. You will want to stay here for the following reasons: 1) away from Waikiki 2) Right next to the beach 3) Beautiful sound of the ocean lulls you into relaxation 4) Get a more local... More

Stayed in unit 416. We have rented many condo's and houses over the years. Despite the owners statement that it had been recently renovated we found it to be worn and in need of a thorough cleaning. The building itself was even more rundown. The ocean view was beautiful but the view to the south was of a rundown building... More

Paradise with a capital P can be found at Pat’s at Punalu’u Unit 715!! From our initial contact with owner Kathy and throughout our stay, everything was wonderful! Everyone we crossed paths with at the property was very friendly and helpful. Always felt safe and secure. The condo was perfect. Appeared to be recently renovated and/or maintained with great care.... More
