Puako house description

Aloha Guests, please note the rate of this lovely home is dependent on the number of people staying. Ulu Niu is a rare find: a beachfront three bedroom vacation property at an affordable rate. Lovingly hand constructed by the owner 20 years ago, this hideaway is set in a lush coconut grove that provides privacy and shade from the tropical sun. Yet just beyond the verdant plantings lies a white-sand beach on Waialea Bay: “perfect sand, gorgeous water, interesting shapes to photograph, a treasure trove of interesting shells and coral,” wrote one guest. This is one of the few natural sand beaches on the Big Island. Swim, dive, snorkel and sunbathe on the beach right in front of the house—the perfect spot for children and adults alike.

Mature plantings, carefully situated, plus two-level design create a haven of comfort for enjoying beach living while capturing the best of the coastal breezes. Beautifully crafted with oak floors, redwood paneling and koa shelving, Ulu Niu is lovingly decorated with artwork by renowned local artists, all related to the owners. Casement windows with venetian blinds between the glass layers attest to the thoughtful design of this tropical home, carefully maintained by the original owner/builders.

The second floor contains the main living area with high beam ceiling, spacious open dining room and kitchen plus comfortable seating for reading or watching television. Just outside is the covered lanai, which offers open-air dining with cooling breezes, ocean views and Hawaii’s famed sunsets. The two bedrooms on this level include an oceanview bedroom and a full bath.

A large dorm-style bedroom on the ground floor, with a separate entrance, contains multiple beds for teens or younger children with a nanny. Also provided are a bathroom and shower plus a laundry room. The carport keeps your vehicles out of the sun for comfortable driving. GE and TA tax # W 20581220-01


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.
