Puako (Pu-ah-ko) is the only small, quaint oceanfront community on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. It is 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 enjoying 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, fine dining, shopping and world class golf courses. Kohala Divers and Ocean Sports 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 desire, with the exception of viewing the volcano which is a 3 hour drive.
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. 30 minutes, Kailua Kona 45 minutes, Waimea 20 minutes, Hilo 1½ hours, Captain Cook, coffee country, 1¼ hours, Hawi and Polulu Valley 20-30 minutes.
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 60 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!
My family and I could not have been more happy with our accommodation in Puako at Hale Uluwehi (sp?). It was spotless upon arrival snd very well appointed.. We thought we were having trouble with the hot water and you sent over someone right away. It turned out not to be a problem at all.
Your website is easy to use and your communication was clear and easy to follow.
We plan on renting again, perhaps this summer. It was our first trip to the Big Island and Puako. It was fantastic and we have nothing both great things to say about our experience. My wife and I have traveled all over the Pacific; New Zealand, Cook Islands, Moorea, Fiji, etc. Our trip to Puako ranks as one of our finest.

This house was great, large enough for all of us to have our own room and we did not feel like we were on top of each other. It was nicely furnished with newer appliances. The kids really like the outdoor shower and we enjoyed relaxing in the evening on the lanai.
The beach was right across the street and had the perfect location to watch sunset. Additionally, down the road is an amazing place to go snorkeling, a large variety of fish, turtles and we were lucky enough to see a Mana Ray feeding.
For those who like boogie boarding, there is a great beach less than a mile away.
Great house for our first family vacation. We like the layout with the master bedroom at one end and the rest of the bedrooms on the other side. We were traveling with 6 adults and a baby. We had a couple that stayed out late, one with a 4-month old baby, and Grandpa and Grandma. No one was bothered by the different schedules. We all had our own space but could eat our meals together. The house was very clean and the pictures were accurate. Had all the comforts of home and liked the store next door. Quiet street and never heard any noise. Aloha Debbie properties were responsive and available for questions. They also keep a close eye on the property which is appreciated.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hale Uluwehi in Puako, Hawaii. The house was very comfortable and perfect for 4 couples which was the size of our group. In addition to the 2 full bathrooms, there was a toilet in the laundry room which is very helpful with 8 people in a group.
We really liked the location of the little quiet town of Puako with is north of Kona and north of the airport, so the traffic is much lighter. There are 3 beautiful beaches within a short driving distance. Beach 69 was fabulous for snorkeling. There is access to the water within a 5 minute walk from the house. It’s not a beach for lounging or swimming, but one person in our group saw turtles there. There is a small grocery store right next door which was very convenient, but there were trees and vegetation between us so you didn’t notice the store from the house which was a plus.
The only negative to mention about the house is that there was no air conditioning in the main part of the house. Each bedroom had an individual air conditioner, so that was good for sleeping. But the main part of the house got uncomfortable at times. We were there in June 2015 and it was quite hot. The description of the house listed AC as one of the amenities which I don’t think was quite accurate.
