Puako House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

A leisurely stroll through artistic etched glass doors welcome you into the spacious great room of Ohana Hale, one of Puako's premiere oceanfront homes. Stunning Brazilian teak hardwood floors throughout the home, combined with top-of-the-line appliances and Hawaiiana décor make this an ideal island vacation home. Plentiful oceanside sliders not only bring the sunlight and the sea breezes to you, but open up the tropical view for your pleasure. Cleverly designed to afford maximum privacy, this Puako home has three ocean side suites, each with a full bath.

Not only does this home provide a spacious, modern setting but the loving purchase of comfortable and beautiful furnishings give it a feel of home-away-from-home. The kitchen is a chef's dream with every small appliance and handy gadget a cook could need. My favorite spot is the large oceanside covered lanai, where a good book, a tall cool beverage, and the sights and sounds of the sea are all the companions one could desire. For those who must work, high-speed wireless Internet access is provided as well as a fax machine and work space, just off the kitchen. The office also has a trundle bed that is perfect for two youngsters or a single adult. GE and TAX tax W83723944-01.

This home is managed on behalf of the owners, by Mary Fox, R(B) 2 Papayas, LLC. Mary holds an active real estate broker's license in the State of Hawaii.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this amazing house in Puako for a little over a week, and it was absolutely perfect. The house is enormous, and right on the shore, with turtles lazing around the rocks and the sound of waves gently crashing on the shore. The house was spotless -- clearly the owners take excellent care of the their home -- and it showed in every little detail. The beds were large and comfortable; ample bath and beach towels and clean linens. The kitchen is huge and very well equipped. The outdoor BBQ was perfect for locally caught fresh fish from Da Fish House in nearby Kawaihae Harbor. This house exceeded my expectations, and was a perfect retreat for a luxurious and relaxing week of sun and surf. I look forward to coming back and will definitely stay in this property again, and recommend it to others. You will not be disappointed. Mahalo!

Fantastic Week 2/16 - 2/23/13

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderful house for a week with our 2 adult sons and their wives. The house was perfect for our 3 couples. Every couple had their own space, and every room had its own fabulous 180 degree view of the water. The experience was first rate, from arrival (met at the house with fresh fruit, coffee, and wine at 8:00 on a Saturday night) to the unexpected mid-week housekeeping service, to the prompt return of our damage deposit. The house was immaculate (looked just like the photos) and all of the kitchen appliances and furnishings were high quality. Covered parking was a bonus.

The only thing that could have made our stay better would have been less wind, but unfortunately no one could control that.

The lanai is absolutely wonderful for gathering to enjoy morning coffee and breakfast while looking for whales and turtles, and for watching each glorious sunset - and for all the time in between, for that matter. We saw lots of whales, turtles, and even a few dolphins without having to leave the lanai at all. If the water had been calmer, the snorkeling in front of the house would have been better. As it was, the wind made the water a bit too choppy for safe snorkeling. The waterfront is lava and coral, but sandy beaches are less than 10 minutes away. Hapuna Beach is beautiful, but the lesser-known "69s Beach" is closer and had fewer people. "69s" worked well for us, because it was also more protected from the wind.

Puako is a great little community. Not many people, but a stunning setting - quiet, but close to many activities in the area. We did an ATV trip on the Kohala coast, a helicopter tour of the island out of the Kona airport, a sunset dinner cruise out of the Waikoloa Resort on A-Bay, and a hike through the petroglyph park at Mauna Lani. We also took a short side trip to a brew pub in Waimea. In between there was plenty of time for walks and watching wildlife.

I can't say enough good things about the great communication and service we received from Mary and Robbie at 2 Papayas. They were very helpful at every step of the process, from booking through checkout. We would love to return some day. We stayed our second week in a similar house on Maui, but the level of service we received there did not compare to how we were treated in Puako. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a luxurious and awesome location on the Big Island.

You Just Can't Beat It

You Just Can't Beat It

While this was my first time on the big island, I have stayed at many homes on both Kauai and Maui. This home is superb. Located on a quiet street in Puako, north of Kona, you have a 180 degree view of the ocean and Maui in the distance. The home is completely up to date with lush landscaping that creates an unique sense of privacy. The house is quite large with three substantial master bedrooms,(the upstairs master has its own separate lanai), an additional office room, ample kitchen, living and dining room and a separate laundry room. The downstairs lanai extends the entire length of the house allowing us to lounge and dine there in comfort. Every space in the house is well equipped. The house is situated to allow you to walk to excellent snorkeling or just sit on the lanai and watch the whales frolic beyond the breakers or the sea turtle explore the tide pools in front of the house. It is about a five minute drive to wonderful sandy beaches and boarding opportunities. With the absence of any street traffic, you truly feel that you are living in your own paradise. As Kona is the sunny side of the big island of Hawaii, you can endlessly bask in the sun with the trade winds blowing. I look forward to my next visit to this peaceful paradise.

A little piece of heaven!

What can I say...OMG! The house is beautiful. The views are incomparable. The whole situation of the house is just wonderful. It is located on the beach side of the one dead end street of Puako. We sat on the oceanfront lanai to watch the whales, turtles, gorgeous sunsets and more. Walk off the lanai to the beach to find tide pool creatures, swim, snorkel, kayak, turtles... Take a hike from the house to the petroglyph field. Short drive to other beaches. No need to eat out if you like to cook. Gourmet kitchen is well stocked with quality pans, knives, utensils, spices. Go to the local fish store, "da Fish House" in nearby Kawaihae to buy the freshest local fish to grill. Nearby produce stand sells papayas, mangos, giant avocados, greens. We ate every meal on the lovely huge lanai. If you are going to the Big Island, you must stay here.

What a lovely week! Sitting out on the lanai and gazing across the water to watch the humpback whales breaching, I could feel my stress melt away. The house is spacious and clean, the beds comfy, and the kitchen great for cooking healthy meals. Step out on the beach to discover sea turtles and petroglyphs on the rocks, and stroll down the road to swim in the crystaline water with beautiful snorkeling. Thank you for a piece of paradise. I can't wait to return.

Dating back to ancient times, Puako was a fishing village that, until the 1950s, was accessible only by boat or by the Ala Kaha Kai (the ancient “shoreline trail” that is now partially restored as a National Historic Trail). One of Hawaii’s largest petroglyph fields is nearby.

Still a small beach community—fewer than 200 homes along a single road just 2 ½ miles long—Puako is blessed with a consistently sunny and gentle climate. An eclectic mix of residents, snowbirds and vacationers, the kids you see on bikes and the surfers at Paniau probably live here. As you cross paths with them, stop and “talk story” at the General Store, an informal community center as well as a convenient resource for supplies. Life in Puako—year-round and short-term—is relaxed, very relaxed, but never boring.

Rimmed by a protected marine preserve, the Puako reef offers endless sights for snorkeling, SCUBA diving, kayaking, swimming and tide pool wading. Join the “honu” (protected sea turtles—please enjoy them at a safe distance) for a swim or follow their lead and bask in the sun nearby. You’ll have a great vantage point for watching the wintertime display of whales and their young during their calving time in our warm waters.

If all this isn’t exciting enough, you can walk to the Mauna Lani or Fairmont Orchid Hotels for a sunset beverage, or visit the nearby Shops at Mauna Lani or the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace just down the highway for shopping and a variety of restaurants and galleries. On the way upcountry to Waimea, home of Parker Ranch and the “paniolos” (cowboys), a stop at Kawaihae Harbor offers additional restaurants, galleries, and a fish market. Golfers have numerous options, and adventurers may head for the summit of Mauna Kea, the active volcano Kilauea or a trip to the Zipline in Kapa’au.
