Pukoo house description

This artful, beach front home is on Molokai's beautiful East end, in the desirable Puko'o area. It is fully furnished, charming, and perfect for couples. We prefer 3 guests maximum to lower the impact on the precious ecosystem and our home. With one king bed, one full, and a pune’e (daybed) in the living room, you can enjoy the serene and peaceful spaciousness of your private getaway. The property is out of the way, yet walking distance to a neighborhood store and lunch counter that has all the essentials. It sits on an acre of land with a mango tree, coconut palms, and hibiscus all around.

The ocean is just steps away from the spacious lanai, open, airy living/dining room, and full kitchen. The calm beach here is perfect for snorkeling, swimming, or sunbathing. From every room there are gorgeous views of either the ocean, with the islands of Maui and Lanai beyond, or the mountains of Molokai. Time here slows down leaving you to discover your natural rhythm in the true essence of Hawaii.

NOTE: There are rare times when the owner is on the property for one or two nights in a detached studio. The studio is separated by a breeze-way and bamboo fencing with it's own entrance.

Aloha!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1964

                  About the owner: Zelie Duvauchelle grew up in this home, moving in with her grandparents as soon as it was built. She lived here until, as an adult, she was called to move to the mainland, always returning for frequent visits and returning to live for periods of time. She is passionate about sound/music and facilitates personal growth seminars in Hawaii, the US mainland and abroad. Google Zelie for more information about her.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pukoo:
                  Zelie Duvauchelle's grandparents built this home after having lived just next door for many years, and chose this location for Kainehe because of the beauty of the land and ocean all around. It was designed to capture the views, as well as the steady ocean breeze.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The view of Maui is just awesome. On some days it looks like you could swim over it looks so close. The different shades of blue and green in the water are captivating all day long.
