'Hale Melemele' (Yellow House)is a slice of paradise in peaceful Puako. A stroll across the street places you on one of the finest snorkeling beaches on the island.
The breakfast lanai captures a view of the Pacific while a spacious rear lanai affords the sunrise over Mauna Loa. There is a queen bed in the living area which has a half wall that separates it from sofa sitting area.
Lushly landscaped with a manicured, spacious lawn ideal for play, 87 Puako is charming and impeccably cleaned and maintained. New lava/teak, indoor-outdoor shower has a granite wall and all new plumbing fixtures. The island decor is elegant and tasteful. The cottage is perfect for a couple or a couple with two or three children (add $30 per person, per night) . The layout is not ideal for two couples....email me if you want a quote for additional people. Each reservation is considered and quoted on a case by case basis.
A few minutes to Waialea Bay - the famous Beach 69. One of the island's great surf spots is located at the south end of Puako Beach Drive, and the Puako reef is known for its exquisite diving and snorkeling. A one-mile beach path leads to the Fairmont Orchid and the Mauna Lani resorts from the end of the street. Both areas have public beautiful, white sand coves. The white sandy beaches of Hapuna, Spencer and Kaunaoa Bay are ten minutes away.
Five minutes from gourmet dining, boutique shopping and four of the Big Island's finest hotels and golf resorts.

My husband and I and a couple of extended family members stayed here for 10 days. It was by far the best holiday we have had in years. The house was very toddler friendly, breezy and beautiful. Wonderful BBQs and just short stroll to beaches filled with turtles. Wonderful, wonderful!

Great Family Times in Puako
Great Family Times in Puako
Our family - mom, dad, 3yr old, and 5 yr old, just returned from a wonderful week in in Puako. The house was great. It was very spacious and had everything we needed from kitchen to beach stuff. We really loved the huge grassy backyard where we kicked a ball around every afternoon. Dinners on the back deck were great just as the temperature was cooling down. Fans throughout the house made the inside temperature nice for sleeping. From the house we went to all the local beaches with Hapuna being our favorite. We love Puako for its relative seclusion, although great dining and groceries were all within 20-30 minutes. Overall this is a great relaxing home in a wonderful part of the world. We're already thinking about next year.

Why the Owner Chose 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 front door. 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!
