Enjoy sunsets from the privacy of the large covered lanai, your own sandy beach and enticing tidepools, and the serenity of the perpetual song of ocean breezes in the trees at this lovely oceanfront setting.
This versatile beachfront home can serve as the perfect romantic getaway for a couple, or comfortably accommodate a family or group of eight. The spacious, nicely manicured lawn and easily accessed beach invite both the playful frolic of children and relaxed lounging of adults. Sharing the beach with resident sea turtles is a daily highlight, and during winter months savor the opportunity to view and listen to the grandeur of the visiting humpback whales from the living room, lanai and backyard.
Choose your dining experience, from the beautiful teak indoor dining table to the comfortable and roomy environs of the ocean side lanai, which extends the length of the main house. Here you will find a beautiful outdoor dining table, cozy lounge chairs, and the pune'e, a large built-in lounging area which can be used for outdoor sleeping for those more adventurous souls.
Each bedroom has its own outside entrance complete with full bathroom. The large master bedroom, with king bed, opens out to the ocean through a sliding glass door and onto its own lanai. One of the other three bedrooms opens out to the ocean and onto its own lanai as well.
First class snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing is available within a short walking distance at Paniau, a gorgeous little bay at the end of Puako.

Noho Nanea - Amazing
Three simple words...Book This House! Our adult family of six stayed in the house from May 2-7, 2018. Our stay couldn't have been better...well Kilauea volcano could have not erupted... The house had everything we needed inside and outside to make our first trip to Hawaii amazing. Even included beach chairs, beach shoes, floats, boogie boards, towels, etc.
Seems like a dumb thing, but even having a drive thru driveway with covered parking was really nice and kept the car cool and ready when we needed to go out.
The location is excellent. Maybe 10-15 minutes to the grocery in Mauna Lani center and also a larger one in Waikoloa Village. Need snorkel gear, get it at Snorkel Bob's in Mauna Lani also. Queen's Marketplace is about 15 minutes away. Lots of shopping options if you want that. Takes about 40 minutes to drive into Kona to shop or have dinner. The street is quiet and safe. Walkers and drivers all wave as they come and go.
The beach in front of the house is awesome. Sea turtles out and about every morning. Some small fish around especially at low tide. Can walk out on the lava rocks pretty far into the surf. Be prepared for a rocky bottom, no sand out in the surf. But fear not, the house is very close to Beach 69 and Hapuna Beach. Beach 69 is down Old Puako Road and is not very crowded. Excellent photo op areas and lots of fish to see while snorkeling. Go to this beach. Inside info...Puako Beach Drive dead ends shortly beyond Noho Nanea at a resort. Just before that on the right is a local beach/parking area. Has a lovely walking path that connects along the ocean to the resorts. There is also amazing snorkeling in this out of the way place. The days we went there were locals heading into the water for scuba and snorkeling early in the morning. The fish were incredible and is all within walking distance of the house.
Our daytime hours at the house were spent on the amazing porch overlooking the ocean. Early breakfasts and lunch as a family around the outdoor table. Napping on the deck chairs, doing puzzles on the outdoor table. Pretty quiet and non-eventful...perfect for Hawaii getaway.
Kalia was great to work with. She answered all of our questions prior to arriving on the island and had the house open and ready when we arrived. Even called the first night to check on us. Can't say enough about how great this house is. Hope to return and stay here again! Thanks Kalia!
This place is absolutely wonderful! 10 stars
We brought our son, daughter-in-law, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren here and everyone LOVED it! The layout of the house is remarkable and everything was spotless. There were plenty of towels, dishes, cookware and everything necessary to make the stay a wonderful one. The extra fridge is a great idea! We highly recommend this place!
I forgot to mention the BEACH! It was such a delight to step outside and be right on the beach. We enjoyed a different spectacular sunset each night.
Perfection in Puako
I have rented homes in Puako before but none have had such a perfect breezy lanai to sit and watch the sunset at the end of a busy day. It was never hot in the main house or bedrooms which is important to me more than my travel companions. Plenty of space to spread out makes it feels like your own private resort. My kids loved their outdoor shower and separate sleeping quarters. Snorkeling just beyond where the waves are breaking is fantastic with all kinds of fish- it drops off from about 10 feet deep to 30 feet deep. Its hard to keep your distance from the turtles as they will swim up near you. We also saw eels, an eagle ray, a cone snail larger than my fist, and scorpion fish in less than waist deep water (wear something on your feet out there). Fabulous partially shaded yard and a beach right beyond the sea wall. We cooked dinner for six in the house 7 nights out of 10. The house has everything you need to make meals. Had great boat dives with Kohala divers nice shore diving a little ways down the road at entry 56. Walked the road itself for exercise as many do in Puako. Made some purchases in the general store, but did major grocery shopping in Waimea and costco. The house has beech chairs, cooler, towels, umbrellas and everything you need to enjoy the beech at Hapuna- including boogie boards. Manager is very competent, and easy to work with from start to finish (fast return of the damage deposit).
Loved the layout of the house with the bedrooms separate from the main areas. We really enjoyed being right on the ocean. Saw turtles and whales!
It was so relaxing and I would highly recommend to anyone.
Amazing property on the beach
We stayed at this Puako property from October 23-30th. and besides the one day of torrential rain (unusual for the Kona side of the Big Island, the weather was beautiful and the house was amazing. When I first arrived I thought the pod concept strange with the main house on one side of the large open deck to the sleeping quarters (ensuite) on the other side. But, as the days went on and I was able to wake up early and go to the kitchen, do my yoga, make coffee and not have to tiptoe around to avoid waking anyone up, I fell in love with the idea.
It's a very spacious house with a large and fully equipped. a great property and a great manager to oversee things.
Exceeded our expectations, 6 adults in our group, all bedrooms are great, views and location were perfect.
