Step into this bright and sunny condo located directly across the street from the ocean in the quaint neighborhood of Puako on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. Enjoy the impeccable views of the ocean and the surrounding mountains on the top floor of this condo. The tropical lush landscaping awaits you!
Puako is a quiet, beach community that is home to beautiful tide pools and large numbers of honus (green sea turtles). A short walk across the street to the beach will have you sharing the sand and tide pools with these friendly sea creatures and a variety of other sea life.
In the winter months, the humpback whales come amazingly close to the shore at Puako. It is quite a sight that you can easily enjoy from the condo's lanai.
Most locals consider the Puako area the best spot on the island for snorkeling and scuba diving. Puako is ideally situated close to some of the best world class white sand beaches including Wailea Bay, Hapuna Beach, and Mauna Kea Beach.
Nearby resorts provide many activities including golf, tennis, spas, shopping, ocean activities, fine dining, dolphin encounters, and musical entertainment.
The Puako General Store is next door to the condo for your convenience. It is well-stocked and even has a large selection of DVD rentals.
The condo pools are a great place to cool off after a day of exploring, sightseeing, and playing at the beach.
Our condo is well maintained and boasts a light, clean, Hawaiian feel! The condo includes a fully equipped kitchen including a coffee grinder, coffeemaker, blender, tea maker, Cuisenart, waffle iron, toaster, crock pot, electric fondue set, cooking and baking utensils, silverware, glassware, and tableware.

Location, location, location! Perfect year-round weather makes Puako the ideal vacation spot on the Big Island.
We are teachers from Northern California and have enjoyed our Puako getaways for over 30 years.
Our fourth generation is now experiencing this quaint beach community.
The spectacular view of the ocean and the sounds of gentle waves every morning gets our day off to a great start. Sunsets from the lanai are a highlight of the evenings.
We enjoy the proximity to the resorts where we play tennis and work out at the fitness center.
Viewing the sunbathing sea turtles and exploring tidepools across the street is always enjoyable as well as ocean activities at nearby beaches.
We had a wonderful time! As a retired chef, I did bring my own tools, but the Rachel Ray cookware in the condo was a breeze to use.
The view was everything we had hoped for and more.
All the leftovers and unopened boxes were left for the housekeepers who did such a great job.
Jonathan was great helping us find the coffee grinder and giving us directions to operate the remote for the television.
We will be back next year so keep me informed of any off-season deals.
We like to stay here when we come to Hawaii. It's convenient and well-maintained.
Puako is one of my favorite places and saying in this condo is certainly part of it. The clean, spacious condo has everything a family would need to relax and enjoy the fantastic Hawaiian vacation.
We woke up daily to the birds chirping on the beautiful palm tree right outside our lanai. Our 2 year old daughter was IN LOVE with the pool. The small kiddie pool was perfect for her. The general store next to the condos has everything you could need and even movies to rent, which was a nice bonus for an evening in. We took daily morning walks along the beach where my daughter collected her treasures and counted the beautiful turtles taking a sun bath! It was amazing to see that many turtles just cruising in the tide pools. She hasn't stopped talking about them :)
We discovered Wailea Bay or as the locals call it Beach 69 just a mile away. The condo had some snorkel gear on hand so we took that and some boogie boards down to now my favorite beach. Great place to see some amazing fish and there is plenty of spots for shade which was great for a small child.
At the end of each of our busy beach and pool days we felt very lucky to have found such a gem of a place to stay. The condo exudes the right amount of Hawaiian spirit and comes with a view that cannot be beat.
My family will certainly be returning to this piece of paradise!
Puako General Store right next door open 8 AM to 7 PM
