ALOHA SANDS...LUXURY HAWAII BEACHFRONT VILLA + SPACIOUS GUEST APARTMENT

Puako Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This lofty and spacious Hawaiian villa lies on the Gold Coast of Hawaii, the sunniest spot in the state. Aloha Sands is also on the best sandy beach in Puako between the Mauna Kea and Mauni Lani Resorts. Most of Puako has no sandy beach and access to the water is over lava rocks. Because of this natural beach, and sandy bottom swimming lagoon, it is considered the best of the best of Puako by local realtors and rental agents. With 180 degree views of the ocean, bay, the island of Maui plus the Mauna Kea Volcano this exclusive property has it all.

Built in 2007, this fully-screened tropical pole house construction is an award-winning architectural style,and offers 4 very spacious master bedroom suites and 4 1/2 baths (3 large king masters and 3 1/2 baths in the main house PLUS an additional king master suite and bath in the unattached 2nd-story studio apartment). STUDIO ALONE IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR RENT. EMAIL OWNER- EXCELLENT RATES.

The gourmet kitchen, large and airy great room with media center, den, and grand lanai all have spectacular views of the ocean and are steps away from the sandy beach. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The up-scale studio also boasts a fully-equipped kitchen and spectacular ocean and bay views, and lies within the estate's gates and walls.

(WE ALSO RENT THE STUDIO WHEN AVAILABLE.PHOTOS BELOW)

Two outdoor hot showers in private gardens lead from the garden gates to the sandy beach. Your warm lagoon is your swimming pool. Protected and only 2-5 feet deep with a sandy bottom,it is home to green sea turtles and colorful juvenile fish. A few strokes 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, the 45 foot humpback whales will thrill. 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 Hawaiian grocery store in very short walking distance.

Profession people with a home also in California.

Marie purchased this villa in 2006

Puako is a very special place on the Gold Coast of Hawaii between The Mauna Kea and Mauna Lani Resorts with many ammenties and choices for a fun-filled relaxing vacation.

We are one of a very few properties on the only stretch of sandy beach in residential Puako. The beach is natural and rustic with a tidal-protected lagoon steps from our lanais with access to one of the best snorkeling and scuba diving on the island. Humback whales cruise our reef in front of our villa from January to April, and green sea turtles are common visitors to our lagoon. Our home is beautifully appointed with imported furniture and art. Our views from every room delight the senses all times of the day and all seasons of the year.

PUAKO SPRING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
Puako is a great location for a big island vacation and Aloha Sands is a wonderful home to spend a week. The house is beautiful, the views are spectacular, and the beach and lagoon are right out the back. We were a group of ten that never felt crowded. We all enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and used the lanai for coffee in the morning, sun bathing during the day, and cocktails in the evening.
There is a great general store just a couple of hundred yards away that always seemed to have what he had forgot to get at the grocery store.
We had a wonderful week and I am sure we will be back. Thank you Marie and Catherine!

Owner's Response: Bill, so glad your party of ten enjoyed our home, property and neighborhood. Thank you so much for your review. We love having our island grocery store so close and it is amazingly stocked with the basics and then some. I am also glad you found our island representative, Catherine helpful on your meet and greet and check out days. We pride ourselves in our service and that can only happen with the right people. Do come back and see us. Very best regards, Marie

BEST HOUSE IN ALL OF PUAKO

  • 5 of 5
The Seattle Aquarium research crew of four divers just arrived back to Seattle after spending the week at this gorgeous home in Puako, the jewel of the south Kohala coast. We were there to conduct the sixth year of our annual underwater video reef fish surveys centered in Puako. Since 2009 we have stayed in Puako at different rental homes in late January or early February to do this research. In February 2014 we had the opportunity to stay here. What a treat! The house is stunningly beautiful as well as comfortable. It met all our needs and then some. It has spectacular views of the Puako and South Kohala coastline, so for the few daylight hours that we weren’t working we had great views of the humpback whales breaching from the large and comfortable lanai. The house is eye pleasing and well-built will all the amenities. Everything about the house is perfect-from the two outdoor showers to rinse off sand and saltwater to the spacious and comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms, living room and the very well-appointed kitchen. The entire home is of the highest quality. The owner, Marie, and the caretaker, Catherine, were so gracious and helpful whenever we needed it. There is no better place to stay, watch wildlife, hike, swim, snorkel and dive in Hawaii than Puako. And there is no better place to stay in Puako than this home. We will definitely be back! If you have never been to Puako prepare yourself because once you visit you will vow to come again and again.

Owner's Response: Dear Shawn, We were absolutely delighted that you and your research team chose our home for your 6th. annual reef project on Puako. You are doing such important work at the Seattle Aquarium and we know that choral reef health is a major indicator of the health of our planet. I hope you had enough time to relax and enjoy our property, and it sounds like you were able to squeeze a little R and R in. I know Puako Association benefitted by your presentation and I will hear all about it when I return to Puako. Thank you for your kind comments concerning our home, property and neighborhood. We loved having you and are glad the whales were breaching. Best regards, Marie

INCREDIBLE HOUSE.

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much for the use of your house. Our group had a great time. The lagoon is so full of life, and the sunsets are amazing. It is so relaxing sitting on the lanai and watching the whales. Very close to Hapuna Beach.

House is wonderful. Every amenity that you could need. We had to couples and 2 adult children. Plenty of room to spread out as needed.

Had 2 small problems which were taken care of immediately and with no effort on our part. Marie was very responsive to our needs.

Thanks so much for making it a great vacation.

Owner's Response: Steve, so glad you got to see the whales and warm up from winter in the mid west. We do have a wonderful service team on the island and are delighted we were able to get the new coffee maker in the house the very next day. Thank you so much for your kind comments. You were a pleasure to work with and we hope you will come see us again.
Very best regards, with aloha, Marie

The place is well stocked for cooking and entertaining. the outdoor showers are perfect. i am definitely coming back.

Thanks Marie,

Owner's Response: Aloha Brian! So glad you and the guys enjoyed yourselves. We often get sports enthusiasts staying at our home, but I must say, your group topped out as the iron-men of Puako Beach. As a diver, I agree, we have the finest snorkeling and diving around, and I encourage our guests to get into the water. Our lagoon, as you know has a perfect entry as it is protected by a reef with an opening to the drop off. The lagoon itself is where the ancient Hawaiians taught their children how to swim because of its warmth, sandy bottom and shallowness. Come see us again and next time bring the kids.
Best regards,
Marie

AN AMAZING PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Mere words are inadequate to describe the magnificence of this home, its furnishings and location. From the moment we opened the door we were taken by the dramatic views, sophisticated yet warm decor and vast array of amenities. The three large suites in the main house were immediately secured by various members of our family as our newly-wedded son and daughter-in-law had already claimed the adorable and very private "Ohana" guest apartment above the two car garage. We were a bit concerned as the Ohana has its own kitchen, dining area, living room and two story deck; our fear being we would not see them again for the rest of the trip! While we enjoyed some of the amazing local and hotel restaurants which were only minutes away, dining at Aloha Sands was an indescribably perfect experience.The kitchen is seriously well appointed, so we made breakfast and a few other meals "at home" as we could not resist eating outdoors under the enormous lanai on the rear patio. Some mornings we just sipped coffee under the Lanai watching the gentle waves sweep along the shoreline, only one hundred or so, unobstructed feet away. Other days we enjoyed sensational local products like Hawaiian Sweetbread French Toast with Macadamian Nut Syrup or dined on fresh fish, Abalone or Maine Lobster (farmed on the Island) in the formal dining room as the surround sound audio system played Over the Rainbow by Iz. During the day we walked along the beach, swam and snorkeled along the reef, watched the sea turtles slowly lumber on the sand then disappear in a flash into the crystal clear water, all just out our backdoor! We hiked to the Petroglyphs, collected shells and golfed at two of the many nearby courses. The ladies even made a trip to a nearby spa for some serious relaxation. Of course, Cocktails were served promptly at 5:00, or was it noon, well somewhere in-between, then an hour on the hammock strung between the palm trees a few feet from the patio stairs. Finally, there was our discussions with the owners, I dealt mostly with Marie. Everything she told us was better than described. They were a pleasure to work with, honest, helpful and concerned. It only took a few minutes on the phone to understand why their home was so beautiful - it was a reflection of their personalities! I honestly don't remember our family ever being closer or as happy as during our ten days at Aloha Shores. I am smiling just writing this review. Marie - Thanks For the Memories!

A WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The house and the location are perfect. Every morning I would jog along Puako Beach Road and then grab a cup of coffee, walk a hundred yards to the beach, and watch the wales breaching. What a way to start the day! The house itself is wonderful, and it is so convenient to have the little store across the street for last minute supplies. And many choices of restaurants nearby -- either to the south towards Four Seasons or north to Kawaihae or up the hill to Waimea. This was one of the best vacation spots that we have ever had, and my wife and I have a lot of vacation experience! We will come back.

Owner's Response: Dear William,
Thank you for your response and for renting our home. The whales are amazing, aren't they. We watch them from the house and sometimes they come as close in as the outer reef of our lagoon. Puako is a great neighborhood as you found out, and yes the local grocery store run by good friends, in an historic building is quite the luxury. The little Hawaiian church you pass on your way to our home is the oldest on the island. Puako is very special and one of the last tastes of old Hawaii. What makes it even better is that is is between the major resorts on the island. We feel the spirit of Aloha everytime we visit and are so happy you did too. We welcome you back anytime. Best regards, Marie and Dom
