About the Property

5 Bedroom, 5 Baths, 20 ft Direct Access to Ocean

Come enjoy Hawaii’s Big Island’s best-kept secret: the town of Puako.

Stay in our outstanding oceanfront home nestled less than ten minutes between the Mauna Kea and Mauna Lani resorts. Our property is protected by a seawall and has immediate access to the ocean with steps leading straight to the black sand shore and tide pools into the ocean right at your feet. Fully renovated and exquisitely decorated with an elegant island feel, our home offers 5 bedrooms and 5 full baths, including a separate master suite and separate 2 bedroom pod. Conducive for indoor/outdoor dining for up to 12, with doors that fold entirely away creating the perfect open venue for entertaining and enjoying the spectacular sunsets and the sounds of the ocean waves. Comfortably Sleeps 10.

LOCATION
Puako is famed as Hawaii’s sunniest spot boasting its perfect year-round weather and unbeatable location. It is the only oceanfront community along the Kohala Coast with its original charm intact- where the new and old authentic flavor of the island stand true with the enchanting Pacific Ocean as its backdrop.

IN HOUSE ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS
