Puako house description

Four generations of the island-based Black family have owned and loved this special oasis by the sea, presided over by the oldest and largest banyan tree in Puako. The family’s handiwork is present in the ocean-side groves of coconut palms soaring 15 to 35 feet high: on the right are palms named and planted by individual family members, many as young children, or in honor of special friends; on the left, special events are marked by a separate grove. Together, the palms frame sunsets and the neighboring island of Maui, dominated by the 10,000-foot-high mountain of Haleakala.

The property was chosen by the family matriarch in the early 1950s for its location along some of the best tidal pools in Puako, where children can swim, fish and play, protected by a perimeter of ancient lava flows. The adjacent “Big Rock” rises above the pools, setting the stage for social gatherings and sunset watching. Turtles come to call daily, feeding on the seaweed at the Big Rock’s edge. In the winter, humpback whales pass by, 100-plus yards offshore, cavorting with their young. With the constant sea breezes, the rustling coconut palms and waves provide a natural rhythm of music to this idyllic setting.
