Puako house description

Travelers, please note, the nightly rate for this oceanfront home is dependent on the number of people staying. “Kaiakea” means 'expansive view of the sea.' This home provides exactly that. With palms indoors and out, views of ocean, Kohala Mountain and Maui, you’ll feel close to the sea everywhere in the house. Designed by the artistic hand of a resident architect to make the most of its seaside location, this home is kama’aina (child of the land, longtime resident) owned and loved for 30 years and now continuing under new, local ownership. It combines the essential beach-house views of ocean, honu (sea turtles), wintertime whales and striking sunsets with the best amenities that a luxury home offers. With two first-floor master bedroom suites, two upstairs “view suites” with private balconies, and a sleeping loft, you’ll find plenty of space for both solitude and community for your extended family or group. , four-bath home with additional sleeping loft. The home features all the amenities you could want including a full kitchen with two refrigerators and two dishwashers, comfortable beds and bedding, TV's, Blue Ray player and high-speed wireless internet. Relax on the spacious, covered, ocean side lanai for meals, reading, napping or just plain good conversation with family any time of the day. Particularly, stunning are the colorful sunsets over the Pacific. Winter months, enjoy the humpback whale show right out front. State of Hawaii GE/TA tax number W60144282-01
