Magical Oceanfront Home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic stay! The house was spotless and had all the amenities you could ask for, and more that weren't even listed - a free massage, gift certificate to the general store, etc. The housing managers, Peter and Holly, took care of the internet issues (due to a big storm the first night) quickly and were flexible about our checkout time. We took some of their suggestions on restaurants and local music and had a great time.

The snorkeling in front of the house is incredible - tons of sea turtles, fish of all kinds, urchins and coral. Our other favorite activities included horseback riding through the Valley of the Kings, attending the Waimea Ocean Film Festival, and sampling fish tacos from everywhere possible. We can't wait to come back for another visit!

Perfect family holiday in Puako paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Big Island and decided to spend Christmas there for the first time. We had rented a house on Puako Beach Road with our extended family and friends two years before and very much liked the area. I was therefore very pleased to find a rental at such a late date (August) in the very area we wanted to stay. Hale Alma is a beautifully constructed, high-end house with tasteful furniture and décor, accurately shown on the website. All 3 bedrooms in the main house have ocean views and en suite bathrooms. The media room can also serve as a fourth bedroom, as there is a bathroom just adjacent. In the guesthouse next to the main house, our friends had their own space including full kitchen and two bathrooms which allowed them to have privacy, peace, and quiet in the mornings when there was more commotion in the big house where the rest of us stayed. I think this would also be a perfect arrangement for visiting grandparents.

What we enjoy about renting a house is the ability to cook for ourselves. We had many meals for our family, guests, and guests of guests, often cooking for 10 people, all of whom can all sit at the large wooden table made from a gorgeous tree trunk. We took advantage of the local fish market, the numerous farmers markets in Waimea and Hawi, and Asian food supplies at the market in Waikoloa. For Christmas dinner, we slow roasted a 15 lb pig leg purchased from a vender at the farmer’s market. It was butchered and cured just days before Christmas and it was delicious with the mango chutney we made for a side dish. My friend and I purchased some local flowers and made a large floral arrangement for the occasion. We found the kitchen to be well equipped, and, thankfully, there was an espresso maker as well as a standard coffee maker!

At this time of year, whales are visible from the house and other locations around the island. Of course, large sea turtles are there all year round as well as other wildlife. We had fantastic walks along the coast in the tide pools, and explored many of the local beaches, snorkeling at numerous locations. The kids like to buggy board at Hapuna, a white, sandy beach. Bicycles suitable for short trips up or down the road are available for the asking. We never missed viewing the sunset from the lava rocks in front of the house.

We could not have asked for a better holiday with our family and friends and look forward to returning to Hale Ama in the future.

GORGEOUS OCEANFRONT PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home Oct. 2009, Sept. 2012 and Oct. 2013 each for 2 weeks. The last 2 times we were there, our friends from Utah came and stayed with us for a week. We did fresh fish on the BBQ that was purchased at the local fish market which is caught every morning then brought to the market. We also enjoyed all of the fresh fruits and vegetables at the local farmers market which is located not far from the fish market. It is such a joy to cook in the gorgeous kitchen with all of its amenities and top of the line appliances. We loved eating our meals on the hand painted picnic table on the lanai. Every evening we would take our chairs to the beach with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful sunset.

This beautiful Hawaiian home is very warm & inviting. We love the glass doors that open up at the back of the home and in the master bedroom to bring the “outside in”. It is custom decorated and not a detail was missed from the beautiful wood floors to the blue granite in the kitchen that resembles the ocean, wood banisters, built in cabinets and entertainment center along with inlaid bathroom counter tops. Each bathroom has its own walk-in shower. When showering in the master you have a view of the ocean-beautiful!!

There were days that we didn’t even leave the property. It is so nice to relax on the lanai with a good book or just sit & look out at the expansive ocean. We snorkel, kayak, paddle board, walk along the beach & enjoy the many large turtles, ride bikes & just take walks along Puako Bay Dr.. It is such a peaceful area. There are many activities to do outside Puako which include the petroglyphs, Mauna Kea Observatory, Volcano National Park, coffee farms & waterfalls just to mention a few. The last two visits we rented a Harley motorcycle and spent the day just touring around the island-a treat for you motorcycle enthusiasts. If you are a church goer, there is a Catholic & a Protestant church on the street. We visited the Protestant one in 2012 & enjoyed hymns in Hawaiian & in English. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. There is also a small market just up the street for your convenience.

The pictures speak for themselves, a true dream vacation home. We are hoping to return in 2015 & bring our children & grandchildren to share in this paradise.

FABULOUS HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house during a November 2013 trip to the Big Island. Being residents of Los Angeles, it was an experience to see the lava fields, quite another world. It's where the black lava meets the gorgeous blue sea and the colors and fragrances of tropical flowers are all around.

The house itself is amazing!!!!

It has all the amenities you could need and then some. The owners have thought of everything to make guests feel comfortable and at home. There were three couples in our party and we all enjoyed on -suite bedrooms. My wife and I were fortunate enough to have stayed in the master suite - and oh what a fabulous view!!!

The energy in the space is so wonderful - it is the perfect get-away and 'place to call home' for whatever brings you to this tropical heaven.

Not your typical rental home - it's totally custom decorated with beautiful wood floors throughout, custom carved wood banisters and built-ins. I found certain features really special....like the beautiful kitchen granite that has blue swirling veins resembling the ocean waves and the glass doors on the ocean front of the house that slide completely back to let the warm sea breezes flow...it's clear that every inch of this home was planned with so much love and attention.

We liked to walk and bike around the neighborhood- the atmosphere is tranquil and the neighborhood friendly and quiet. One of my favorite pastimes when I'm in Puako Bay Drive is just strolling down the palm-lined streets, listening to the sound of birds, enjoying the trade winds and feeling grateful to be in such a beautiful part of the Big Island. In the evenings when we weren't dining at home we would walk or drive to the nearby resorts for diner and entertainment. Golfing was also very popular with our group. There are some excellent courses in the area.

As you can see from the pictures, the ocean is steps away and also the turtle conservatory area where we all enjoyed the tide pools and turtle watching.

We dream of returning very soon and we always refer our friends.

Aloha.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Aaah. Walk in the door and look through this house to the sparkling blue sea. You've arrived. Relax.

This comfortable home, built with beautiful natural materials and craftsmanship is gorgeous at every turn. The owners provide everything you will need to enjoy the magic around you.

Our typical day:

Sipping Kona coffee and eating fresh fruits on the lanai while watching whales swim past. (We saw a whale give BIRTH when we were here in February 2012 - it was astounding!)

A swim and snorkel with sea turtles and colorful tropical fish just in front of the house.

Exploring neighboring beaches and walking Puako road to the Mauna Lani or the petroglyphs.

Relaxing on the beach with friends and watching the sun dip into the sea.

After dinner on the lanai, a starry night, a comfy bed and the sounds of the sea, we were lulled into the most relaxing sleep ever.

The friendly Puako store just up the road is perfect for most needs. Other shops and excellent restaurants are just a few minutes away by car. This home is at the perfect spot on Puako road with its lagoon, sand beach, views of Maui and spectacular sunsets. (not all Puako beaches have these views.) We've made very special memories here.
