Overview

Puako House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Kolea (the Hawaiian name for the Pacific Golden Plover) are believed to have been migrating between Alaska and Hawaii for at least 120,000 years, returning to the same spot year after year. Symbolizing the unbroken continuity of nature’s rhythms, the kolea is an “aumakua” or “protector spirit” and figures in many Hawaiian stories, songs, chants and hula. It is an apt name for this seaside home, whose owner first came to the site as a child in 1929. Now one of four homes in this family compound (see also Honu, Ehu Kai and Ulu Niu), Kolea itself represents continuity, with many families returning to it every year—for good reason: it is a rare find: a beachfront vacation home at an affordable rate. Set amid the cooling shade of a coconut palm collection that was once the largest in the state, Kolea’s grassy yard is nearly an acre in size—great for children. Steps away is the white sand beach of Waialea Bay, where you’ll swim, dive, snorkel and sunbathe while enjoying the honu (sea turtles), manta rays and wintertime whale activity.

The two-bedroom, two-bath, two-story home, built in 1969 and recently renovated, offers comfortable beachside living with cool breezes, outdoor dining, ocean views and spectacular sunsets. Kolea is one of only a handful of vacation rentals available on Waialea Bay, a prized location for a Hawaii vacation.

Beautiful Kolea

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family vacation at Kolea. The shade and breezes keep the house comfortable all day, although you don't need to spend too much time indoors with a beautiful beach just outside the door. The beach has shade, which we found is pretty rare on Big Island beaches, but means you can spend all day. Waialeia Bay is a perfect location if you want to swim and snorkel: so many fish steps away, and Hapuna Beach is very close, too, for more active kids who want to boogie board, etc. I wouldn't trade the quiet sunsets for anything; probably our favorite part of our first trip to the Big Island. A huge yard with plenty of shade for kids to play, spacious lanai where we ate every meal, shave ice nearby in Kawihae, sturdy boogie boards and working grill. Gorgeous spot, peaceful house. Hope to return.

We have stayed in the house and area four times and love the Puako area so much. Great beach house and easy to live in and close to all the North end sights. Great information given by 2 Papayas. Look forward to staying again soon. Linda

Wonderful Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent a week here and loved it. This place was very clean and well-appointed but the best thing about this house is its proximity to the beach. We rented a surfboard, a paddle board, and brought a fishing rod and snorkel gear and we never had to leave the house. The deck feels private but has a great view of the ocean. We loved the little community of Puako, it feels far from the surrounding mega resorts but it was nice to be close to some shopping, spas and the town of Waimea, which we loved.

Great Big Island Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from about a week at Kolea in Puako. Everything about it was just fabulous, from the warm welcome (calls to make sure everything was OK and that we had arrived and a macadamia nut pie in the fridge!) to the fantastic location on the best beach in the area. We agree totally with everything that is said on the review for the property on the 2 Papayas website. It was very clean and had a impressively stocked kitchen. We cooked a lot and found everything that we needed. Loved it!

Kolea House

  • 4 of 5
Fantastic lanai - great view of the beach, sky/sunset and water (including the surfers). Wonderful cross-breeze kept us comfortable. We've stayed at this beach many, many times, but the first time in this house. What we liked: great lanai, great ice-maker (kept up with our blender drink needs no problem!), good bird book for identifying our friends. Always have loved this beach, but it has become more populated over the years, especially since a paved parking lot, bathroom and showers were added at the public entrance at the end of the road. Beach is still quiet and peaceful early morning and in the evening, sometimes too many shrieking kids midday.

Our Favorite!

  • 5 of 5
After 12+ visits to Hawaii, my husband and I agree our 2 weeks at Kolea was our favorite rental. The beach house is well maintained, clean, well stocked, comfortable and situated on a terrific shady beach with wonderful swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding access. The view from the shaded lanai, where we ate every meal, is extraordinary and we had so much fun spotting many whales and spinner dolphins. A few mornings we even saw manta rays gliding in the shallow sandy areas of the turquoise bay. What a sight! When we snorkeled, we saw so many different colorful fish and a lot of turtles too. It was great to be able to grab a couple of the chairs and towels that were provided, head through the back yard gate, be right on the beach and so close to the house to run back for whatever! No need to drive anywhere if you don't want to. This is the type of place you could stock up at any of the nearby grocery stores and just stay at the house, grill up some fish or steak and relax and escape.
But, if you do want to explore, golf, hike, shop and go out to eat, you will find staying at Kolea is an excellent Kohala coast starting point. Head north to Hapuna beach, Kawaihae (which is very close and has a great fish market, lunch wagon, ice cream/shave ice, burger place and the Blue Dragon restaurant with entertainment and a dance floor), Hawi & Kapa'au (for shopping and food), Pololu (great black beach hike) or to Waimea (some of the best restaurants on the island). Head south to the many nearby resorts for lots of shopping and many more restaurants Fabulous golf is nearby too, at Mauna Kea, Hapuna, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa beach resorts. You are also very close to Blue Hawaii helicopter company, which is our favorite. We would love to return to Kolea and would recommend it and definitely feel it would be an equally wonderful rental for romantic couples, a family with kids or a friends getaway vacation. One more thing, the property management is top notch and extremely helpful and reliable.
