“Wonderful place in an amazing location!”
Reviewed March 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Pakalana Sanctuary a little less than a week for a wedding at Mauna Lani. Roth and his other business partners were very kind and informative. Roth emailed us ahead of our trip to see if we needed anything or if we had any questions. He was prompt in his communications and gave us a detailed list of things we could do during our stay in relation to our interests.

The room was very spacious with a view of the ocean. It was nicely decorated with lovely furniture and very comfortable. We appreciated that there was A/C installed and used it sparingly when we were in the room. There was a mini fridge in the room that was perfect for holding cold drinks and we made use of the communal kitchen on the first floor. It was so convenient to be able to cut up fruit that we purchased at the farmers market or grab a cup of coffee. The only quirk in the room was the shower (temperature was never constant), but it was a minor thing.

The location of Pakalana was perfect in every way. We were a 12 minute drive from Mauna Lani for all wedding activities and a quick drive to Waikoloa Village or shopping and many eateries north and south of the place. It was wonderful being able do and see so many things and feel like we were alone in paradise, away from the resorts.

I wish we had more time to spend at Pakalana and the Big Island, but we hope to be back someday! Thank you Roth and your friends - you made our trip so memorable and amazing.

“Beautiful & Peaceful Sanctuary by the Ocean”
Reviewed February 21, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

What a special place! Pakalana Sanctuary is located in the lovely old beach community of Puako, where there are a multitude of small beaches and ocean entrances within walking distance of the lovely self-contained units found on the elegant bamboo-constructed property. Pakalana Sanctuary is a truly special vacation rental, and we were so pleased by the lovely, comfortable decor inside the unit as well as the ocean views not only from both the living room and bathroom but from the porch. Not only is the property and its units beautifully appointed with everything you may need, the property manager and owner, Roth, is a true delight and happy to do what he can to make your stay ideal. He is so accommodating, helpful, and friendly. We felt so at home and at peace. We look forward to returning to this rental on our next trip to the beautiful Big Island. Mahalo, Roth!
