Property description

Vintage Beach Cottage is an immaculate and well-maintained one-bedroom cottage just steps away from the shore in the enchanting neighborhood of Puako. Just cross the quiet road to watch turtles resting on the warm sand and dolphins and whales frolicking offshore, followed by vibrant beach sunsets each evening. Ideal for a couple or single looking for total relaxation, the cottage is delightfully decorated in vintage-look Hawaiian fabrics, Hawaiian art, shells and surfboards. A brief stroll away, the Puako General Store offers charming local hospitality. Meet the owners or talk story with neighbors while enjoying a cool beverage, a refreshing ice cream bar, or selecting a movie to watch after the sun goes down.

This cozy one bedroom/one bathroom home rests on grounds that are well-maintained, private and peaceful. The lush green lawn is fenced for undisturbed enjoyment of a hammock to nap or lounge with your favorite book. Shower off after the beach in a wonderful garden shower surrounded by the lovely scents of stephanotis and jasmine. Begin your mornings with a cup of coffee in the covered-lanai garden with ocean view. Dine indoors or out, at the shell-inlaid table in the dining nook or under the stars on the lanai. Drift off to a restful sleep with ocean breezes and the soft scent of pakalana flowing through the French doors of the master bedroom.

The living area, with adjacent kitchen and dining nook, is decorated with vintage rattan and custom-made furnishings, Hawaiian fabrics, Hawaiian art and resource library. Details throughout include koa wood cabinetry, vintage wood floors, custom wood paneling, live orchids and houseplants. The kitchen is equipped with stainless-steel appliances, gourmet cookware, spices, tea and coffee and an assortment of picnic/beach gear.
This cottage boasts a comfortable, colorful bedroom with covered lanai (patio), king-size bed and the added advantage of air conditioning. A full bath with tub/shower combination is easily accessible midway between the bedroom and kitchen. The laundry room is conveniently located near the kitchen.

This home is managed on behalf of the owners, by Mary Fox, R(B) 2 Papayas, LLC. Mary holds an active real estate broker's license in the State of Hawaii.

Vintage Beach Cottage is kept immaculately clean and in pristine condition by the hard-working owners, John and Cynthia, who live next door. Many guests, at check-in have said 'it is even better then the photos'. The photos just do not do justice to the welcoming, Hawaiiana home. We, who live in Puako, are blessed with sunshine, abundant sealife, including turtles, manta rays, fishes, monk seals and in winter months, the magnficent humpback whales.
