This establishment is going to have a revamp. Please check back next year! The new owners are doing a few renovations and then all will be good again! We will keep you all updated. Check the website regularly. We will try and post pictures for updates regularly. Thanks

This B&B is located across the street from some beaches for great snorkeling and to see sea turtles. These are rocky beaches though, but very close by are very nice sandy beaches (beach 69, Hapuna beach). The owners have snorkeling gear, body boards and beach chairs available for guests, though those are old and could do with some replacement. Puako... More

We (two couples) have just been informed that our reservations for October of 2013 have been cancelled by the owner. We were politely informed that as of June 5th, 2013 the property will be under new owners, and will not be operated as a B & B.

My husband and I loved the Puako bed and breakfast! Staying here was like being a special guest in a friends home. A perfect place, relaxing, friendly, accommodating, private, the location was especially great, across from a beautiful beach, near Kona, beautiful beaches and on a beautiful island!

We spent 2 nights at this beautiful B&B in the small room, which was just perfect for us. Though the bath is across the hall, it was ours to use alone. The house has a lovely common room with computer/internet as well as wi-fi. Our hosts have a lot of gear to share for snorkeling, boarding, etc. as well as... More

We enjoyed our time at Puna's B&B. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, this house is a nice getaway when you want more privacy than a typical hotel room can provide. We woke up every morning to freshly-brewed Kona coffee and feasted on gourmet pancakes or hot eggs, toast, fresh fruit and juices. Although not visible from the home, the ocean... More

Puako Bed and Breakfast was a very homey and comfortable stay with a minutes walk to the beach. Delicious breakfast and very kind hosts. We'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend to other travelers! It was also a great choice because we flew in late at night from Kona and it's only a 30 minute drive away.

Had a wonderful two night stay at the Puako Bed and Breakfast. The location was ideal for us, as there was an out-of-town wedding at a rental house across the street. Our B&B was very clean, cozy and offered the most delicious home cooked breakfast we have had in years. Everything was classy - linen napkins, fresh fruit, fresh eggs,... More

We found this cute little house by looking on TripAdvisor and the reviews definitely rang true - we enjoyed our stay so much. The room was beautiful with a king bed and a lot of extra space. There was an outdoor shower that was really unique and fun. The breakfasts were hot and delicious and we loved meeting the hosts... More

My sister Denice and I stayed at Puako Be & Breakfast for 5 days this past October. The house is very neatly kept by Mary, the rooms are beautiful and the beds super comfortable, the garden is very well taken of and the breakfasts are out of this world, delicious and abundant. This B&B is located next to Hapuna Beach... More
