Puako house description

Nestled comfortably within the graceful curve of Puako Bay, this home site is protected by a whale’s tail-shaped lava outcropping. A light and airy house with cathedral ceilings, it offers peaceful comfort, spectacular views and the gentle sounds of water lapping on the shore. Set Located well back from Puako Beach Drive, next door to the tiny historic Hokuloa Church, the Whale’s Tail is a surprise delight: nothing from the street side prepares you for the landscaped yard, large and sunny patio, covered lanai…right next to the sandy beach and quiet waters of the Pacific Ocean. Configured to sleep eight in three bedrooms with three baths, the Whale’s Tail offers views of the bay, Maui and its volcanic mountain Haleakala, and our own Kohala Mountains

Combine the sandy beach next to your back yard with the thoughtfully placed windows that give you excellent views from nearly every spot in the house—upstairs and down—and you’ll love the Whale’s Tail for you Hawaii vacation. Not only is the entire ocean-facing wall built with windows, but also an additional row of large clerestory windows above them ensures that the second- floor loft space and bedrooms have ocean and sunset views. The décor throughout the home echoes the beach, ocean, sky and mountain environment: clean white walls, sandy shades of upholstery, blue-gray cabinetry and tiles of sand and sea colors. Original, local artwork—even in the bathrooms—adds to your sense of place in this very special corner of paradise. GE and TAX number W 00480306-01
