Puako house description

This 3 bedroom oceanfront cottage is nestled on a hillside located on beautiful Waialea Bay, one of the Big Island's few white sandy beaches. If you are looking for an authentic Hawaiian experience and simple beach living, this house is for you, yet the most luxurious resorts on the Kohala Gold Coast are just a few minutes away for fine dining, golf, tennis and spa facilities, if you want that too.

The close proximity of the house to the water make this an ideal spot to snorkel, swim, sunbathe, dive as well as watching the whales playing out front. You can see the children make sand castles from the kitchen. Fully furnished for three couples or a family, it can sleep 6 adults, plus 2 children on the two large punees in the living room. Two of the bedrooms can be either king beds or two twin beds and all three bedrooms have ocean views.

It is also the ideal romantic getaway for a couple. Let the ocean sounds lull you to sleep then wake up and step outside as the Pacific Ocean awaits you for another beautiful day in Paradise. Enjoy breathtaking beach frontage from the oceanside patio with seating, dining and a BBQ area. If you want to be right on a white sand beach,this is it!

There is a wash room with a shower, washer/dryer and two sinks downstairs just off the beach. There is also a separate bathroom which was recently completed with a double shower head (located right off the front porch). There is also the original 'Hale Li'i' which is an additional 1/2 bath located up a short foot path next to the house.

              About: AlohaDebbie Properties (R), manages this property on behalf of the owners. We are a mother-daughter team (Debbie & Leilani) and we are here to assist you with the perfect Big Island vacation. We are local residents and live within a few minutes of this property, ready to assist you with any requests during your stay. Deborah D.

              Why Puako:
              Puako (Pu-ah-ko) is a small, quaint oceanfront community on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island located about 30 miles north of Kailua-Kona and 22 miles north of the Kona airport. The island's largest white sand beach, Hapuna, is right next door. Puako is conveniently located for visiting all the resort hotels and restaurants on the Kohala Coast. The Mauna Kea, the Fairmont Orchid, the Mauna Lani and Hilton Hotels are just minutes away with their beaches, first class restaurants, shops and world class golf courses. Kohala Divers is nearby at Kawaihae Center, and offers various ocean activities including scuba diving and sunset/afternoon sails. Kawaihae Center and Harbor are just 10 minutes by car, with several great restaurants and shops. You are close to almost any activity you may choose, with the exception of the volcano which is a 3 hour drive. Puako Beach is a combination of tide pools and patches of coral sand, but there are several fabulous white sand beaches just a few minutes away. Hapuna Beach (voted best beach in Hawaii by Conde Nast Magazine) and Waialea Bay (Beach 69) both are wonderful for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding. There is great surfing spot called Paniau at the end of Puako Beach Drive. When the surf is not happening, fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving will entertain you with beautiful green sea turtle, eagle rays, brightly colored tropical fish and one of the most glorious coral reefs in the world. The neighborhood is called Puako, and it is conveniently located for touring all parts of the island. All homes in this neighborhood are on small acreage, so it is a very low density area. Driving time to the Kona airport is approx. 30 minutes, Kailua Kona 50 minutes, Waimea 20 minutes, Hilo 1½ hours, Captain Cook, coffee country, 1¼ hours, Hawi and Polulu Valley 20-30 minutes.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The sun shines 355 days per year and the average temperature highs are in the 80's with low's in the 60's. The ocean's edge is about 150 feet from your doors Puako offers ideal fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing and kayaking. Walking and biking is a favorite, too! Sea turtles, dolphins and whales are some of the sea life you may see. Puako offers beach style living and a real sense of getting away from it all. Puako is rich in Hawaiian history. Walk south along the ocean trail to see the petroglyphs. There are approximately 3,000 petroglyphs scattered throughout the Puako Archaeological Fields. These pictures are etched into the lava rock that dominates the Kohala and Kona Coasts. Access to the Puako Petroglyph Park is through the adjacent Mauna Lani Resort. The waters around Puako are extremely clear due to the fresh water run off and strong coastal currents. Divers and snorkelers can enjoy waters abundant in sea life along the shallow reef at Puako. The Puako Marine Preserve is a protected environment for endangered sea life. Green sea turtles are a protected species and should not be bothered, only enjoyed and admired. Watch the humpback whales play along the coast. Beyond Puako's reef shelf the whales play and breach during their migration to Hawaii from Alaska. It is quite a sight!
