Property description

HOME OF THE HULA MOON

Stately and serene, HULA MOON sits on one of the most beautiful oceanfront properties in Puako. Each bedroom has a perfect ocean view. Located near the end of the road, you will enjoy year-round sunsets and privacy. As you enter through the gates, lush tropical plantings enhance the large courtyard swimming pool and generous lanai. The pool is not heated and is seasonally between 77 and 88 degrees. Designed so that every room has a magnificent view of the ocean, you will love the open and airy feeling of this 5000 square foot contemporary home. Please view our VIRTUAL TOUR- just scroll down to find the link which is below the Rates and Calendar section.

If you are getting married on the Big Island, congratulations, but please note that we do not allow any weddings or receptions or other events on the property.

HULA MOON was designed for gracious living in a relaxed atmosphere. Including the covered lanais you have almost 7000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space. The two-story Great Room is breezy and inviting with wonderful views of the ocean. The beautiful oceanside lanai has a dining table for 8, seating for an additional 12 guests, and a built-in wet bar. Enjoy watching the humpback whales in season, spinner dolphins and green sea turtles from everywhere in the house. The Puako reef offers some of the best snorkeling and walk-in scuba diving on the Big Island.

We have four large bedrooms located at opposite ends of the house for maximum privacy. The Kona and Kohala suites are on the main floor and both have stunning ocean views and doors that open onto the lanai. Each suite has been beautifully appointed with new King mattresses and linens. Both have large bathrooms with a separate dressing area and a large open-air shower filled with sculpture and tropical plants.

The two spacious upstairs bedrooms have expansive ocean views and a private lanai that runs the length of the house. The Aloha suite has a new King bed and two plantation chairs for relaxing. The Turtle suite has new Twin beds (that can be made into a King Bed) and a daybed 'trundle bed' that also has an additional lower twin mattress. The Turtle suite is a great room choice for the kids or for parents with a couple of children. Of course, it is also perfect for a couple or for several friends to share. Both upstairs bedrooms have private bathrooms with large walk-in showers. The bathrooms were completely remodeled in late 2015.

Each bedroom has a TV/DVD player and an iPod speaker dock. There are 6 televisions with premium cable channels throughout the house. We do not have air conditioning because the home was designed to 'breathe' and to take advantage of the steady ocean breeze and the winds coming off the mountain. This provides excellent cross ventilation. There are ceiling fans and louvered windows in every room. It remains cool and comfortable and every bed has a blanket plus a quilt or comforter which guests often need at night.

If you have business to attend to, we have a great Wi-Fi connection, and several work stations. The upstairs double office has a printer that you are welcome to use. And a punee (Hawaiian lounging bed) for relaxing.

Daily housekeeping, private yoga lessons, in-home massage, kayak rentals, and more can be arranged through our concierge. Just ask and we will do our best to help you make the arrangements for your perfect Puako experience!

HULA MOON is a welcoming home where visitors can feel like a local. Join our ohana of happy guests.

HULA MOON is professionally managed by the owner. This is our only vacation rental property and it shows in our excellent professional staff and attention to details.

This property is compliant with Hawaii Tax Act 326. We collect and pay our Hawaii GET and TAT taxes. Our tax ID number is: 25465279-01.

Please include your correct PHONE NUMBER when making an inquiry. This is very important to us as we cannot continue to respond to you without it.


Welcome to the HOME OF THE HULA MOON.
Warmest Aloha

Car: Necessary

Puako is quite possibly the sunniest spot on the Big Island. Blessed with a dry climate and pristine water, Puako remains a top destination for travellers seeking a perfect beach location. The Puako reef is alive with fish, green sea turtles, eagle and manta rays, dolphins, and whales during the winter season. Early Polynesians considered it a spot with strong 'mana' or spirit, and carved numerous petroglyphs in the fields near our home. Surfers love the winter surf at nearby Paniau, a five minute walk from our home, and children will love the tide pools where the sea turtles rest each evening. Puako is a family neighborhood which was originally homesteaded in the 1950's. The Aloha Spirit is strong and you will love being part of this small friendly community. Puako is a short 25 minute drive north of the KONA Airport. Exclusive resorts with spas, restaurants, tennis and golf courses are a 10 minute drive from Puako. Relax or do everything!

Other Activities: Walk-in scuba diving is a 5 minute walk from our home.

Great snorkeling on the Puako Reef.

Hiking trails.

Lovely sandy beaches nearby.

Yoga/massage/spa services nearby.

Golf: Beautiful golf courses at the Mauna Kea and Mauna Lani and other nearby resorts that are a ten minute drive from here.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I came to Puako 30 years ago. The homes are larger now, but the community retains its laid-back friendly atmosphere. There is something magical about the Big Island and if you spend a little while in Puako you will feel the 'mana' and aloha spirit of this special location.

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
This is a beautiful home. Every bedroom and living space has a fabulous ocean view and we have excellent cross ventilation throughout. The pool area is protected so it is warm and sunny. We are not located near a public beach access so our house is very private and more secure.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Puako has the finest sunny and dry climate year round. The reef is healthy and wonderful. Our home was built so that every bedroom has a gorgeous ocean view. The home is perfect for four couples or for a large family group. There is almost 7000 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor living so you can always find a private place to relax. We enjoy year-round sunsets and quiet friendly neighbors. We swim in front of the house with manta rays, and dolphins, and buy fresh fish directly from the fishermen at the nearby harbor. We get freshly baked bread and organic produce at the Waimea farmers' market and buy orchid plants and fresh papayas from a woman down the road. Home of the Hula Moon will be your own private paradise during your visit to the Big Island. Join our ohana of happy guests.
