Puako house description
Our two bedroom, two bath home is a perfect getaway for couples and families! Just 400 feet from the beach, and with a beautiful view of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, our house offers two sides of Hawaii, both the ocean and the mountains. Enjoy breakfast in the morning, watching sunrise over Mauna Kea on the wrap-around deck. Take a leisurely stroll to the beach, picnic and beach chairs in hand, and enjoy the warm Pacific waters. Snorkel in Puako Bay or at nearby Waialea Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. Swim with sea turtles, colorful fish, and perhaps even a moray eel! Afterward, relax in the screened-in lanai living space, while your meal is grilling out on the BBQ. And end your day by watching the spectacular sunset over the ocean before walking back to your Hawaiian escape.
E 'aka'aka Mau House (aka Laugh Alot House) is uniquely set up to accommodate family and friends, but still afford privacy. The upstairs area has a spacious living room; the cathedral ceiling with two fans gives the space a light, breezy feel. This same ambience carries over to the dining area, where koa trimmed windows and wooden floors show off the 'Hawaiian plantation' decor of the room. Folding doors on the side of the bedroom allow our guests to expand the space into the dining area, but also affords privacy if desired. The galley kitchen is well equipped with everything necessary to prepare any kind of meal, from a Thanksgiving turkey to Hawaiian and Asian fare. Granite-topped counters and a large, shelved pantry provide the ideal space to create meals for family and friends. And a Char-Broil radiant heat propane grill is readily accessible on the deck, perfect for grilling that special Hawaiian dish!
Downstairs, a second bedroom with sitting area and separate bath lends a 'studio setting' feel to the unit, and is perfect for teenage children or when two couples rent the house. For extra guests and/or small children, there is a fold-out sofa sleeper in the upstairs living room as well as a pullout futon in the downstairs sitting area. Finally, the screened in lanai is set up as an additional living space, with a double bed futon for those wanting to sleep outdoors.
High definition TV, DVD player, iPod dock, and a variety of books are available to our guests. A full-sized washer and dryer are also on the premises for your use.
Our goal is to make E 'aka'aka Mau House your home away from home - a place to relax, enjoy your surroundings, and laugh alot - with family and friends!

- Puako Beach is the only non-gated community on the Kohala Coast. Unlike when visiting a resort, the visitor to Puako Beach gets the 'real feel' of living in a small Hawaiian town, complete with a multipurpose general store, local area churches, and local area events. Beautiful beaches are easily accessible within a few minutes walk. Yet Puako is close enough to larger towns and resort areas for people wishing to play golf, eat out, or visit art galleries. ...moreless

Wonderful property and excellent owners
Wonderful property and excellent owners
We stayed there for 3 weeks and had a excellent vacation. We had stayed there previously but the new owners made many much needed improvements. We will stay there again on our next vacation. The property is conveniently located for the water activities as well as the golf we enjoy. Mahalo

Great vacation house!
Great vacation house!
We had a fantastic vacation at this house! The neighborhood was pleasant and quiet and it was nice being away from crowds. The photos accurately reflect the house and the house was very clean when we arrived. Walking the short distance to the beach every morning and seeing the turtles was a treat. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular! We especially enjoyed being able to see the millions of stars at night, as well as the Milky Way, while lying in the lounge chairs in the side yard. The house had everything we needed - a fully equipped kitchen, nice linens, flat screen TV and DVD player, 2 outdoor grills, and even snorkel gear. The general store down the street was convenient for items we forgot to buy in Kona, like a water-proof camera. We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at nearby Waialea Beach and relaxing in the shade of the trees. For excursions we went to the Hamakua Macadamia Nut factory in Kawaihae, then continued north to the quaint town of Hawi for some great shopping. On the way back, we stopped at Hapuna Beach and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and walk on the beach. It was so nice to come back to the house and prepare a quick meal using the outdoor gas grill. The owners were very easy to work with and stayed in touch with us during our stay. We highly recommend this house for your next vacation and we look forward to returning as soon as possible!

About the owner: We have enjoyed coming to Hawaii over the past few years, and have particularly enjoyed the unique community of Puako. It's a great place for family and friends. We feel at home here in Hawaii, and want to share that with others who visit this amazing paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Puako:
Puako is a very special place. It is a unique community blending full-time residents, retirees, and short and long term renters. Quiet, peaceful, and beautiful, it is reminiscent of what Hawaii was like fifty years ago. Some of the best snorkeling is available literally within a stone's throw of our home. However, we are close to other activities - including Mauna Lani Resort for golf or to enjoy a nice dinner out, to Hawi and the Kohala Peninsula to visit galleries, whale watch, and swim, and to Waimea for its farmer's market, restaurants and unique Hawaiian Cowboy culture!
