Overview

About the property

Hale Aloha Cottage is an oceanfront guest house located in the magical neighborhood of Puako on the Big island of Hawaii. The Main house is also available for rental at VRBO674382.

Puako is one of the sunniest destinations in Hawaii with a unique blend of old Hawaii charm and one of the most pristine coastlines in the islands. Each day is filled with the sound of the sea, coconut trees swaying in the tropical breeze and the beauty of Hawaii. You share the ocean with sea turtles and play on an oceanfront rich with sea life. Your day ends with one of the most stunning sunsets in the world

Typical of the beachfront homes that have made Puako so beloved, Hale Aloha is ideal for a couple who appreciates a sense of place in a perfectly maintained Hawaiian-style beach house. This property is perfect for lounging and enjoying the sunshine and ocean air. Ocean access is adjacent to the Hale Aloha which offers an ideal location to go fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing, kayaking, and stand-up paddling.

Hale Aloha was built in the 1950's, but was completely renovated without losing its Old Hawaiian charm in 2014. This colorful and exceptionally clean cottage has been expertly renovated and restored with fun and playful decor. Everything is new, cabinets, plantation doors, stainless steel appliances, wood louver windows, bedding, towels, kitchen accessories and utensils, plumbing fixtures, tile in bath and kitchen area, right down to new paint inside and out.

The warm ocean is your swimming pool. Protected and only 2-5 feet deep with a mostly sandy bottom, it is home to green sea turtles and colorful fish. Just beyond the reef-protected lagoon is the best snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking in Hawaii. In low tide the tidal pools will inspire, and in January through May, you can watch the 45 foot humpback whales play and breach. Morning walks along the two-lane Puako Beach Drive will find you at Puako's famous ancient Hawaiian rock carvings, the largest example of Petroglyphs in the world. There is also a grocery store in walking

distance.

About Mike & Diane Prohoroff

We are residents of the Big Island living in Waimea. There is something magical about The Big Island and when you spend some time in Puako you will understand. We have many friends who have homes at Puako and have enjoyed spending time there over the years. We purchased Hale Aloha for a family retreat to be shared with our children, grandchildren and guests. The community retains its laid-back friendly atmosphere. Puako is a short drive to the world class amenities and resorts of the Kohala Coast, but offers a unique Hawaiian vacation. Our goal is to keep our rates reasonable and encourage our guests to return on a regular basis.

Warm and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We feel thankful to the owners, Mike and Diane, who have thought of just about everything at "Hale Aloha" to make renters feel comfortable and relaxed. Truly the spirit of Aloha is present in this charming place and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. After staying in this neighborhood a good number of times we now consider Hale Aloha to be our best and favorite rental experience! We especially felt lucky to have been able to watch the Humpback whales frolic in the ocean right from our porch!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this place! Have stayed every February for six years now so don't count on February but if you can get in another time we highly recommend! It's cozy, immediate to the ocean, open to the air with every comfort you need. Studio size but the deck adds living space and we've entertained there to rave reviews. Two nearby swimming areas offer excellent snorkeling, a lovely quiet beach at the North end of Puako Beach Road is a favorite as well. Sunsets from here are awesome. The neighborhood at Puako is welcoming and warm, enjoy!

Tropical View

  • 5 of 5

Waking up every morning to the amazing tropical view was a dream come true. The hardest thing was trying to decide to drink our Kona coffee from bed or on the deck while taking it all in! The cottage had everything we needed for our retreat. We don't like staying at crowded hotels and swimming and snorkeling on crowded beaches, and this place allowed us to enjoy the best of Hawaii right out our door. I can't wait until I can book our next trip!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most magical spots on the planet. The view from the seaside "treehouse" is magical....we were lucky to have a full moon too. The sounds of the wind, the sight of the water, the moon, the sunset,....I will be back asap!

Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cozy cabin for two in a stunning location. Wrote a proper review in the guestbook, but the gist of it is that we had an incredible time and can't wait to get back (and we shall be back!). Mahalo nui loa to the owners and property manager for making our dream sojourn in Puako a reality!

Incredible location, intimate and clean

  • 5 of 5

This is the place for your if you're after views of the ocean, privacy and don't like crowds. The General Store up the road is a gem, locals are friendly, very little traffic. Cooking facilities are basic but who wants to cook on a holiday! It's just like the pictures, very well ventilated with a lovely breeze off the ocean.

Highly recommended, no negatives. Stayed 5 nights, would have loved more.
