Property description

A leisurely stroll through artistic etched glass doors welcome you into the spacious great room of Ohana Hale, one of Puako's premiere oceanfront homes. Stunning Brazilian teak hardwood floors throughout the home, combined with top-of-the-line appliances and Hawaiiana décor make this an ideal island vacation home. Plentiful oceanside sliders not only bring the sunlight and the sea breezes to you, but open up the tropical view for your pleasure. Cleverly designed to afford maximum privacy, this Puako home has three ocean side suites, each with a full bath.
Not only does this home provide a spacious, modern setting but the loving purchase of comfortable and beautiful furnishings give it a feel of home-away-from-home. The kitchen is a chef's dream with every small appliance and handy gadget a cook could need. My favorite spot is the large oceanside covered lanai, where a good book, a tall cool beverage, and the sights and sounds of the sea are all the companions one could desire. For those who must work, high-speed wireless Internet access is provided as well as a fax machine and work space, just off the kitchen. The office also has a trundle bed that is perfect for two youngsters or a single adult. GE and TAX tax W83723944-01.

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.

Dating back to ancient times, Puako was a fishing village that, until the 1950s, was accessible only by boat or by the Ala Kaha Kai (the ancient “shoreline trail” that is now partially restored as a National Historic Trail). One of Hawaii’s largest petroglyph fields is nearby.

Still a small beach community—fewer than 200 homes along a single road just 2 ½ miles long—Puako is blessed with a consistently sunny and gentle climate. An eclectic mix of residents, snowbirds and vacationers, the kids you see on bikes and the surfers at Paniau probably live here. As you cross paths with them, stop and “talk story” at the General Store, an informal community center as well as a convenient resource for supplies. Life in Puako—year-round and short-term—is relaxed, very relaxed, but never boring.

Rimmed by a protected marine preserve, the Puako reef offers endless sights for snorkeling, SCUBA diving, kayaking, swimming and tide pool wading. Join the “honu” (protected sea turtles—please enjoy them at a safe distance) for a swim or follow their lead and bask in the sun nearby. You’ll have a great vantage point for watching the wintertime display of whales and their young during their calving time in our warm waters.

If all this isn’t exciting enough, you can walk to the Mauna Lani or Fairmont Orchid Hotels for a sunset beverage, or visit the nearby Shops at Mauna Lani or the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace just down the highway for shopping and a variety of restaurants and galleries. On the way upcountry to Waimea, home of Parker Ranch and the “paniolos” (cowboys), a stop at Kawaihae Harbor offers additional restaurants, galleries, and a fish market. Golfers have numerous options, and adventurers may head for the summit of Mauna Kea, the active volcano Kilauea or a trip to the Zipline in Kapa’au.
