The two spacious upstairs bedrooms have expansive ocean views and a private lanai that runs the length of the house. The Aloha suite has a new King bed and two plantation chairs for relaxing.

I came to Puako 30 years ago. The homes are larger now, but the community retains its laid-back friendly atmosphere. There is something magical about the Big Island and if you spend a little while in Puako you will feel the 'mana' and aloha spirit of this special location.

Christian or Niki purchased this estate in 2010

This is a beautiful home. Every bedroom and living space has a fabulous ocean view and we have excellent cross ventilation throughout. The pool area is protected so it is warm and sunny. We are not located near a public beach access so our house is very private and more secure.

Puako has the finest sunny and dry climate year round. The reef is healthy and wonderful.

Our home was built so that every bedroom has a gorgeous ocean view. The home is perfect for four couples or for a large family group. There is almost 7000 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor living so you can always find a private place to relax. We enjoy year-round sunsets and quiet friendly neighbors.

We swim in front of the house with manta rays, and dolphins, and buy fresh fish directly from the fishermen at the nearby harbor. We get freshly baked bread and organic produce at the Waimea farmers' market and buy orchid plants and fresh papayas from a woman down the road.

Home of the Hula Moon will be your own private paradise during your visit to the Big Island. Join our ohana of happy guests.

Fabulous! Couldn't have asked for a better 60th birthday present. All of our children were able to join us here and we had a spectacular time. Especially enjoyed my choices to work out, bikes, pool, and exercising with the waves. The whale watching was soooo....magnificent.

My husband and I came to the Big Island for a get away with my brothers and their wives. Home of the Hula Moon was the perfect oasis for our visit. It has four king bedroom/bath combos which gave each couple welcome privacy.
The kitchen was awesome with a very nice grill just outside. We cooked dinner in on four different evenings. Enjoyed wonderful meals on the lanai looking out over the ocean. (Picked up fresh fish at the fish market a few miles up the road) Spent several hours in the same spot each morning drinking coffee and watching the whales! They put on quite a show for us-wonderful entertainment! We also enjoyed wading in the tide pools out front. Saw many sea turtles every day!
The Puako area is a very peaceful area to stay. Make sure you visit the General Store during your stay-they carry more supplies than you would believe and are competitively priced. Also recommend a visit to the Red Water Cafe in Waimea. No view but we had a great meal there our last evening! Thanks for recommending it to us Niki!
Overall, we were thrilled with our stay at the Hula Moon. It is a lovely and very clean, comfortable property. Look forward to a return visit some day!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great review. We are very happy that your family had a wonderful time. And I am glad that you were able to be together and enjoy the magic of "The Home of the Hula Moon". Please return if you can. We look forward to seeing you again.
Warmest aloha.

Puako is quite possibly the sunniest spot on the Big Island. Blessed with a dry climate and pristine water, Puako remains a top destination for travellers seeking a perfect beach location. The Puako reef is alive with fish, green sea turtles, eagle and manta rays, dolphins, and whales during the winter season. Early Polynesians considered it a spot with strong 'mana' or spirit, and carved numerous petroglyphs in the fields near our home. Surfers love the winter surf at nearby Paniau, a five minute walk from our home, and children will love the tide pools where the sea turtles rest each evening. Puako is a family neighborhood which was originally homesteaded in the 1950's. The Aloha Spirit is strong and you will love being part of this small friendly community. Puako is a short 25 minute drive north of the KONA Airport. Exclusive resorts with spas, restaurants, tennis and golf courses are a 10 minute drive from Puako. Relax or do everything!

Other Activities: Walk-in scuba diving is a 5 minute walk from our home.

Great snorkeling on the Puako Reef.

Hiking trails.

Lovely sandy beaches nearby.

Yoga/massage/spa services nearby.

Golf: Beautiful golf courses at the Mauna Kea and Mauna Lani and other nearby resorts that are a ten minute drive from here.
