We stayed at this lovely home Oct. 2009, Sept. 2012 and Oct. 2013 each for 2 weeks. The last 2 times we were there, our friends from Utah came and stayed with us for a week. We did fresh fish on the BBQ that was purchased at the local fish market which is caught every morning then brought to the market. We also enjoyed all of the fresh fruits and vegetables at the local farmers market which is located not far from the fish market. It is such a joy to cook in the gorgeous kitchen with all of its amenities and top of the line appliances. We loved eating our meals on the hand painted picnic table on the lanai. Every evening we would take our chairs to the beach with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful sunset.
This beautiful Hawaiian home is very warm & inviting. We love the glass doors that open up at the back of the home and in the master bedroom to bring the “outside in”. It is custom decorated and not a detail was missed from the beautiful wood floors to the blue granite in the kitchen that resembles the ocean, wood banisters, built in cabinets and entertainment center along with inlaid bathroom counter tops. Each bathroom has its own walk-in shower. When showering in the master you have a view of the ocean-beautiful!!
There were days that we didn’t even leave the property. It is so nice to relax on the lanai with a good book or just sit & look out at the expansive ocean. We snorkel, kayak, paddle board, walk along the beach & enjoy the many large turtles, ride bikes & just take walks along Puako Bay Dr.. It is such a peaceful area. There are many activities to do outside Puako which include the petroglyphs, Mauna Kea Observatory, Volcano National Park, coffee farms & waterfalls just to mention a few. The last two visits we rented a Harley motorcycle and spent the day just touring around the island-a treat for you motorcycle enthusiasts. If you are a church goer, there is a Catholic & a Protestant church on the street. We visited the Protestant one in 2012 & enjoyed hymns in Hawaiian & in English. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. There is also a small market just up the street for your convenience.
The pictures speak for themselves, a true dream vacation home. We are hoping to return in 2015 & bring our children & grandchildren to share in this paradise.
