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.

The most special place I have ever stayed at
The most special place I have ever stayed at
I cannot say enough good things out about our stay here. I was traveling with my best friend of many decades. We are now in our 60's and still enjoy meeting places and vacationing together. We both were in awe of the beautiful setting this house is in. You are right on the beach, and a few nights the ocean waves were so loud, they woke me up. I injured my knee shortly before our stay and was concerned about the rest room being up a steep hill. No need to worry -- a lovely new bathroom with huge shower and all amenities was right there at ground level. The traditional bathroom that was up a little path was also charming and functional. Only because of my knee I was grateful I didn't have to rely on it regularly. For me, this was the IDEAL place to relax, do as much or as little as you want. Shopping is within driving distance or you could just spend the whole time on the beach. We had the windows open day and night the entire time we were there. The weather was spectacular. A huge supply of water toys is kept at the house in the laundry room, which was also a wonderful thing to have. I would recommend this bungalow to anyone. It was clean, very well maintained, and just a very special, peaceful majestic beachfront setting. I am already planning my return trip.

Hi Marla and all at AlohaDebbie Properties: We all wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Lalamilo Beach Bungalow. It is such a lovely home, the beach was beautiful... as is the island. We so enjoyed our time there... can't say enough about it. We're very, very grateful! We'd love to come back soon! Aloha,

Awesome stay for the whole family
Awesome stay for the whole family
We had a great time at this house, perfect for a whole family, adults & kids and great location on a perfect beach. The kids loved playing on the beach and adults enjoyed the nice patio overlooking the ocean and convenient location to put kids for naps, grab lunch, etc. The house was very clean and stocked with all neccessities as well as beach toys, snorkeling gear, etc. We loved it here and plan to come back and tell our our friends that can afford it.

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!
