The location is absolutely perfect! Our group left the property rarely as it had everything we needed for a great family vacation. We spent countless hours playing bocce ball on the manicured lawns while also enjoying the beautiful pool. The lanai was great for gatherings and meals. The house itself could use some updating, especially the bathrooms but the layout was great and imagine that it was spectacular when first built in the 80’s.
With our kids and grand children for a birthday celebration!
The estate is spectacular. Plenty of room for everyone to participate or sneak away. The pool was used extensively by all of the family along with the music system throughout the house. Jenn is available to arrange great restaurants in the area (Merriman's a favorite). Weather was spectacular for us every day in early March and if you want to have a private chef come in for an evening, try Karen Burns. Highly recommended.

Really a wonderful place
my wife and I, and our 4 grown children/sposes had a super time and this wonderful place. it is so pretty, the house is so nice, it has everything. even an excellent sound system throughout the house and pool. There are no neighbors. Being on the ocean is wonderful. The heated pool is huge. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. A nice state park swimming beach is a few miles away and a resort 10 minutes away had a great all you can eat and drink Luau. There is a local person there to help with anything, and she is very nice.I will be coming back!
It is nice!
Puako sits right in the center of the Kohala Coast, also referred to as the Gold Coast as the weather is just that good.
