About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Looking for a vacation rental on the Big Island? This high-end Townhome has it all: four bedrooms (including two master suites), three covered lanais, and access to a beautiful 2-acre Recreation Center.

Our duplex Townhome exudes Hawaiian charm from the moment you walk in. Every room is outfitted with Polynesian-inspired furniture and local artwork and red accents pop against the otherwise neutral decor. The atmosphere is at once sophisticated and inviting.

The house boast two master bedrooms, on separate floors, both have en-suite bathrooms. The third room has one queen-size bed, and the fourth bedroom has a king and an extra long twin. In all, the house sleeps nine people comfortably.

You enter a great room with a flat-screen TV, as well as a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances. WiFi is included.

The upper lanai features a barbecue and is connected to the great room by glass pocket doors that disappear into the wall when open. The lanai feels like an extension of the great room and offers expansive views of Mauna Kea, Kohala Mountains, as well as glimpses of the Mauna Lani golf course, and distant ocean views.

One of the biggest perks is the nearby Recreation Center. It spans nearly 2+ acres, including a lap pool, children's pool and large free style pool with separate hot tub. The center also includes a work out building (not room) with free weights and the latest weight machines. This building has men's and women's locker rooms with granite sinks and showers. There is a covered pavilion with kitchen, BBQ, refrigerator and sink. Access is free to our guests - the perfect place to host parties or just hang out.

When you are ready to hit the sand, grab your beach towels (furnished) and head to the gated private beach club. It has private parking, which we supply a gate pass card for your entry. You park next to the restaurant, which is adjacent to the sandy beach. It is less crowded than the public beaches, less noisy and cleaner. The beach has a calm cove excellent for snorkeling, life guards, rental equipment and lounge chairs.

Other area attractions include the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and the Fairmont Orchid Hotel, both 5 stars, within walking distance and offer access to our guests.

There is a shopping mall within walking distance with a small gourmet market (Foodland), with deli, freshly made sushi and bakery. There are a number of fine restaurants, including Ruth's Chris, Tommy Bahamas, Monstera, Just Tacos, Kimo Bean Coffee and Juice 66. There is weekly free entertainment, art galleries, boutiques, and gift shops.

This luxury Townhome is quite the find. Contact us today before your dates book up. See the availability calendar.

About Kai Ohuchi

The home is owned by John McGrew and Emilia Rusu of Anchorage Alaska.

Kai Ohuchi purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Kai Ohuchi chose Puako

We live in Alaska and have been coming to Hawaii for years. Of all the places we have visited in Hawaii, we like the Mauna Lani Resort and the Big Island the best. The airport in Kona is very casual and easy to

arrive and depart from. The scenic drive to the Mauna Lani area is about 20 minutes. The Mauna Lani Resort area is a world class destination with all the amenities and beautiful beaches.

Well maintained beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned home to Canada and looking out at the snow drifts am already missing the Big Island. There were six of us at the house, being myself, my wife and our two adult kids and their respective spouses. We were very happy with our stay at the house. We all felt that the house was more than adequate for all of us. The kitchen was well stock with all that we would require to cook during our stay. The neighborhood was quiet and safe and made us feel very comfortable. Only a half block away was the park and two pools, so that if we did not feel like going down to the beach, we could just hang out there. James, the manager was very responsive and accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this house.

Great townhome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had everything we needed, including bikes, beach equipment and an outdoor grill. There was even extra air mattresses so my kids didn’t have to sleep on the ground. Right next to the pool which was extremely conventient for our kids. Enjoyed the “private” beach club tremendously. The Mauna Lani area was great. There is even a free hula dancing show at the Mauna Lani shops twice a week. Everything was perfect.

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great vacation with our family of 7 to celebrate my young moms 80th birthday.

The townhouse is wonderful and the pictures are just a teaser for how nice to place actually is.

When you walk in the door you will just say wow!

I really liked all the great art work through out. All the furniture is wonderful and there's lots of space for everyone to spread out and relax. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. Just go down the street to the awesome Foodland store and you'll have everything you could want to have fun cooking. If you like to grill out there is a nice gas grill on the Lanai. I did 20 lamb chops one night and that was a big hit. If you'd rather eat out there are tons of options within minutes.

We really loved the private pool, make that 2 pools and 2 hot tubs, that are just steps away. Then theres the private Beach Club. Need I say more. Great spot with great food and service and you can walk down the coast line pretty much by yourself. They have every water toy for rent but you don't have too because you will have a garage full of toys. SUPs, surf boards, snorkel gear, bikes, coolers, etc. We loved it!

I have to give a shout out to the management team. They are great and helped us with whatever we needed.

This place is a great find.

Thanks Kai,

Excellent choice for a perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa. It fit our party of 9 (6 adults, 3 children) perfectly. The furniture and decor of the villa were lovely and it was very well equipped for anything we wanted to do like cooking indoors and outdoors, making cocktails, watching tv or Red Box dvds, and loads and loads of laundry. The garage was well stocked with bikes and plenty of beach stuff including chairs, umbrellas, coolers, snorkeling gear, body boards, and even a couple of paddle boards. That alone saved us tons of money in rental fees!

The Mauna Lani resort is absolutely gorgeous. The Kamilo subdivision where this villa is located is beautiful and quiet with a nice gym and lovely pool area. It is just around the corner from the Fairmont Hotel and also within Mauna Lani is a beautiful private beach, a small shopping center, and a championship golf course.

You will not go wrong with this one!
