Puako apartment description

We are located in the quaint beach community of Puako. We are across the street from one of the best turtle spots in town. A typical day will see 10-15 turtles swimming around and/or sunning on the rocks depending on the tide. A little farther walk are the Petrogyphs and the coastal hiking trail for the more adventurous. Snorkeling and scuba diving is abundant and there are beautiful sandy beaches just minutes away. We provide beach towels, chairs, umbrella and cooler for your beach adventures. We also do scuba diving and snorkeling tours. We would be happy to give you info on those activities and others if you would like. Sunsets are beautiful from the beach located right across the street.

We are located 26 miles north of Kona International Airport (KOA). It's a beautiful drive up the Kohala Coast. On a clear day we have a great view of Maui! Just a few miles north of the airport, at mile marker 92 is a lava tube that you can walk down into. The scenic overlook is about at the half way point to our ohana. During whale season (Nov.- Apr.) this is a great place to pull off the road and watch them play.
South of the airport in Kona (3-5 miles) is shopping. Costco (which is the cheapest place to buy gas on the west side of the island), Target, Walmart and Safeway are among the national chains we have.
There are also plenty of local stores and restaurants to choose from in Kona as well as closer to 'home' at Waikoloa Beach at the King and Queen Shops or the Shops at Mauna Lani.
North of us is Kawaihae and Waimea where there are more good restaurants and farmer's markets to choose from. We are conveniently located upstairs from the Puako General Store in Puako. They carry many name brand items and local products at a reasonable price and the owners (Narand and Umi Patel) are some of the friendliest people we know. Don't worry, being upstairs from the store is only troublesome if you like ice cream because they sell plenty of that too!
Come check us out and let us introduce you to our piece of paradise!
