OCEANFRONT PUAKO WITH SAND - A GREAT BEACH HOUSE !

Puako House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms/2 Baths (Sleeps 5)

Puako style beach living...just throw on your mask and fins and snorkel right out the front door. This charming and comfortable beach home has been the retreat property for a kama'aina family

(born in the islands) for many years and now they open their doors to offer their Aloha to you! The two bedrooms are separated by a hallway for privacy. One of the bedrooms has two full size beds and a connecting bathroom. The oceanside bedroom has a queen and a twin bed, for a extra child or adult.

Relax on the deck and watch the whales in the winter, turtles in the summer. Have a barbeque! Watch the green flash!

Puako Beach offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world!

We are local residents and live within a few minutes of this property, ready to assist you with any requests during your stay. Deborah D. Sharp (R) has been a Hawaii licensed Real Estate Broker since 1985 and agent since 1981.

Puako (Pu-ah-ko) is a small, quaint oceanfront community on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island located about 30 miles north of Kailua-Kona and 22 miles north of the Kona airport. The island's largest white sand beach, Hapuna, is right next door.

Puako is conveniently located for visiting all the resort hotels and restaurants on the Kohala Coast. The Mauna Kea, the Fairmont Orchid, the Mauna Lani and Hilton Hotels are just minutes away with their beaches, first class restaurants, shops and world class golf courses. Kohala Divers is nearby at Kawaihae Center, and offers various ocean activities including scuba diving and sunset/afternoon sails. Kawaihae Center and Harbor are just 10 minutes by car, with several great restaurants and shops. You are close to almost any activity you may choose, with the exception of the volcano which is a 3 hour drive.

Puako Beach is a combination of tide pools and patches of coral sand, but there are several fabulous white sand beaches just a few minutes away. Hapuna Beach (voted best beach in Hawaii by Conde Nast Magazine) and Waialea Bay (Beach 69) both are wonderful for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding. There is great surfing spot called Paniau at the end of Puako Beach Drive. When the surf is not happening, fantastic snorkeling and scuba diving will entertain you with beautiful green sea turtle, eagle rays, brightly colored tropical fish and one of the most glorious coral reefs in the world.

The neighborhood is called Puako, and it is conveniently located for touring all parts of the island. All homes in this neighborhood are on small acreage, so it is a very low density area. Driving time to the Kona airport is approx. 30 minutes, Kailua Kona 50 minutes, Waimea 20 minutes, Hilo 1½ hours, Captain Cook, coffee country, 1¼ hours, Hawi and Polulu Valley 20-30 minutes.

The sun shines 355 days per year and the average temperature highs are in the 80's with low's in the 60's. The ocean's edge is about 150 feet from your doors

Puako offers ideal fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing and kayaking. Walking and biking is a favorite, too! Sea turtles, dolphins and whales are some of the sea life you may see. Puako offers beach style living and a real sense of getting away from it all.

Puako is rich in Hawaiian history. Walk south along the ocean trail to see the petroglyphs. There are approximately 3,000 petroglyphs scattered throughout the Puako Archaeological Fields. These pictures are etched into the lava rock that dominates the Kohala and Kona Coasts. Access to the Puako Petroglyph Park is through the adjacent Mauna Lani Resort.

The waters around Puako are extremely clear due to the fresh water run off and strong coastal currents. Divers and snorkelers can enjoy waters abundant in sea life along the shallow reef at Puako. The Puako Marine Preserve is a protected environment for endangered sea life. Green sea turtles are a protected species and should not be bothered, only enjoyed and admired. Watch the humpback whales play along the coast. Beyond Puako's reef shelf the whales play and breach during their migration to Hawaii from Alaska. It is quite a sight!

Very nice beach front

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stay in Puako every year. We have stayed in several properties and have rented this particular one twice. It is a large spacious home. The ocean view is wonderful and we enjoyed whale sightings and viewing ocean turtles from the Lanai. The reason for the 4 stars is the property is a bit outdated but comfy and fun. It is a great value for the size and the location. I would stay there again.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
My family has been renting in Puako for 40 years and have finally found the perfect beach house. It is very well equipped, has easy beach access, and has great sunset viewing--perfect. The whales, dolphins, and turtles add much to this pleasurable location. Excellent swimming beaches are short drives down the road.
