About the Property
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Puako is a quaint, secluded community. As you drive past the 1852 Hokuloa Church, you will immediately feel like you have stepped back to a more relaxed time in old Hawaii. Quiet and away from the crush of tourists, there are only 160 homes along the two miles of Puako Beach Drive. Our unit is one of the best situated of the 38 condos in Puako, with a ground floor location and a large private side lanai (with outdoor dining and a BBQ). We’re also conveniently located next door to the historic and friendly family-owned Puako General Store, where you can buy food, cold drinks, prepared meals, rent DVDs, and more.
Our unit has 2 beautiful lanais (front and side) and lots of louvered windows that encourage a cross breeze in the evenings, naturally cooling the space (and ceiling fans in each room help, too). The kitchen and bathrooms were fully remodeled in June 2014. They are fully stocked with everything you need to feel at home and dive into the rest and relaxation of the spirit of aloha. A reserved parking spot is conveniently located right in front of the unit.
The main attraction: the BEACH – right across the street. It’s perfect for snorkeling and is home to many honu (sea turtles). Wake up for the sunrise over Mauna Kea and see the turtles sunning themselves on the rocks. Just a 200 yard walk from your front door. And, in the same spot, is the best sunset on the island. It’s magical. Puako reef is also recognized as one of the best scuba areas in all of Hawaii. Stand-Up Paddleboards and kayaks are available for rent nearby.
Close by (0.5 miles) is Beach 69, one of our favorites. Great for swimming, snorkeling, and surfing if the weather is right. Just past Beach 69 is Hapuna Beach, named Best Beach in America in 1993. And you can get to it from Puako without having to get on the highway! Further up the road is the Mauna Kea Resort. Pull up to the security gate and ask for a beach pass. Then set up your spot and head to the beach bar for one of the island’s best Mai Tai’s. Or play golf or tennis at Mauna Kea, the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, or the Mauna Lani Resort. All located just minutes from the condo.
Ocean adventures (whale watching, swim with wild dolphins, and manta ray snorkeling) are available from the Puako Boat Ramp, five minutes (or less) from your door.
Best part of the day is coming back from the beach or ocean and jumping in the pool! It’s refreshing and always sparkling. Kids love the wading pool, perfect for the little ones still learning to swim. And don’t forget to grab our beach chairs and check out the beautiful sunsets from the beach just across the street!
The grounds are impeccable with lush gardens, tropical flowers and fruit trees. Enjoy cooking in our fully equipped kitchen, throw some fresh fish or local meat on the grill, or dine at some of the world-class restaurants nearby. You will be right at home at this lovely location!

Why Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
Puako (Pu-ah-ko) is a small, quaint oceanfront community on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island located about 30 miles north of Kailua-Kona and 22 miles north of the Kona airport. The island's largest white sand beach, Hapuna, is right next door. Puako is conveniently located for visiting all the resort hotels and restaurants on the Kohala Coast. The Mauna Kea, the Fairmont Orchid, the Mauna Lani and Hilton Hotels are just minutes away with their beaches, first class restaurants, shops and world class golf courses. Kohala Divers is nearby at Kawaihae Center, and offers various ocean activities including scuba diving and sunset/afternoon sails. Kawaihae Center and Harbor are just 10 minutes by car, with several great restaurants and shops. You are close to almost any activity you may choose, with the exception of the volcano which is a 3 hour drive from Kohala. Several fabulous beaches are minutes away. Hapuna Beach (voted best beach in Hawaii by Conde Nast Magazine) and Waialea Bay (Beach 69) both are wonderful for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding. The neighborhood is called Puako, and it is conveniently located for touring all parts of the island. All homes in this neighborhood are on small acreage, so it is a very low density area. Driving time to the Kona airport is approx. 40 minutes, Kailua Kona 50 minutes, Waimea 20 minutes, Hilo 1½ hours, Captain Cook, coffee country, 1¼ hours, Hawi and Polulu Valley 20-30 minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The sun shines 355 days per year and the average temperature highs are in the 80's with low's in the 60's. The ocean's edge is about 150 feet from your doorstep with crystal blue water that is 72-76 degrees year round. Puako offers ideal fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing and kayaking. Walking and biking is a favorite, too! Sea turtles, dolphins and whales are some of the sea life you may see. Puako offers beach style living and a real sense of getting away from it all. Puako is rich in Hawaiian history. Walk south along the ocean trail to see the petroglyphs. There are approximately 3,000 petroglyphs scattered throughout the Puako Archaeological Fields. These pictures are etched into the lava rock that dominates the Kohala and Kona Coasts. Access to the Puako Petroglyph Park is through the adjacent Mauna Lani Resort. The waters around Puako are extremely clear due to the fresh water run off and strong coastal currents. Divers and snorkelers can enjoy waters abundant in sea life along the shallow reef at Puako. The Puako Marine Preserve is a protected environment for endangered sea life. Green sea turtles are a protected species and should not be bothered, only enjoyed and admired. Watch the humpback whales play along the coast. Beyond Puako's reef shelf the whales play and breach during their migration to Hawaii from Alaska. It is quite a sight!
