The property sits on a rare location, directly across from path of migrating whales and its close proximity to deep sea where an abundance of sea life can be witness regularly.

Thanks to the occasional perfect waves the ocean offers just out front the property, it's become known by top notch surfing locals as a 'true secret spot' to surf in Puako!

Puako, is famed as Hawaii’s sunniest spot boasting its perfect year-round weather and unbeatable location; The only oceanfront community along the Kohala Coast with its original charm intact, where the new and old authentic flavor of the island stand true with the enchanting Pacific Ocean as its backdrop.
