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

Stayed here while on our honeymoon for the first part of our vacation. My husband and I weren't thrilled with the prices and crowd in Waikiki so we booked this condo for 6 nights from VRBO. We stayed in #310 which is managed by Henrick. Although we never met him, he seemed helpful via email/phone communication we had both before... More

We stayed in unit 714 managed by Barb. We were there for four nights after a 10 day stay at a luxury resort on Kauai. Throughout the reviews you will read about the sewer, the "hotel", and the noise. First the sewer really isn't bad at all. Yes you notice in the parking lot but if it weren't mentioned in... More

My family and I stayed at Pat's on Aug 21-25th in unit 352 (managed by Betty-they have a couple of rentals). Punalu'u is on the north east side of the Island so you're going get more precipitation and possible trade winds which we preferred to the dry side. The back drop behind the condo is lush mountains and directly in... More

My wife and I stayed in a nice 1 bedroom on the 5th floor. Great view and we had the beach to ourselves. Was partly to mostly cloudy so we went to Waimea and the west side of the island one other time. Lots of turtles out in front of Pats. Smelled the sewer in the parking lot, but it... More
