The Puako Beach House is a spacious beach retreat located just steps from the Pacific Ocean waters. The home was built between two vacant beachside lots and has spectacular private ocean access with the perfect spot to launch your SUP or kayak. Constructed in 2012, the home was designed in a Modern-Coastal style with many high-end upgrades. Interior features include natural wood floors, granite counter tops, tropical cabinetry and high quality windows and sliding doors with Hunter Douglas window treatments. The home is situated to maximize the proximity to the ocean and guests will delight in the sounds and smells of the natural sea breezes, swaying coconut trees and lapping waves that will lull you to sleep each night.
The “main house” has 3 oceanfront bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom, and an open concept kitchen-media-living room. All rooms of the house face the ocean with sliding doors that open to the covered Treks deck. Loungers and modular tables and chairs are available for customizable outdoor seating. There is also a detached 1 bedroom “ohana” (guest) house with it’s own kitchen, living room and ocean view balcony. The “ohana house” living room has a flat screen TV and a queen-size sofa sleeper. All of the bedrooms offer spacious closets, private bathrooms and platform beds with plush memory foam mattresses. There are showers in each bathroom and a bathtub in the “main house” master bedroom.
The property is gated with parking for 2 cars (no garage access). The beachfront side of the house has a shaded grassy yard with a BBQ grill and outdoor shower. The outdoor table and chairs can be set-up on the lawn for the most picturesque outdoor meals. If you chose to rent kayaks or SUP boards on your stay they can be stored on the lawn where you will only have to carry them about 20 feet to the protected tidal pools where you can launch off in the water. In about a 1 mile walk/jog will be at Paniau where you can swim, surf, snorkel or scuba dive in the crystal clear waters.

The Villa was first class all the way... Great location, tons of fun right outside the door with snorkel, scuba, stand up paddle board, kayaking, over 20 sea turtles just resting on the rocks and beaches outside. Some of the best beaches minutes away. Golf, Spas, etc... Rooms were all big and comfortable with beautiful bathrooms attached and ocean views everywhere. Kitchen was beautiful with Viking appliances and granite counters (warning -you are basically sharing a jungle like tropical setting with all that nature brings, so make sure you clean up or the ants will come out). Could have stayed forever, but reality called us home for now... We'll be back!
Surprisingly, we had dive and snorkel boats mooring at three different buoys right outside the villa every day; we snorkeled and were surprised how great it was (you need water shoes to avoid spiny urchin stings to get out). We're also certified divers, so later we rented scuba equipment from a local shop and had some great shore dives right out front. The outside shower made rinse and clean up of gear simple. There wasn't much information on this before we left so this info should be helpful for future visitors.
Only negative was they could really use soft water - or a dish washer with built in soft water like Miele or Bosch... The hard water had already done damage to the dishwasher’s plastic silverware holder so the silverware would fall through cracks and holes in the bottom. The place is only 2 years old and the dishwasher is already taking a beating because of the hard water (Viking isn't really known for their dishwashers anyway)... But other than that PERFECT!!!
This unit is luxuriously well-appointed and was extremely comfortable for our family. Very close, easily walkable proximity to both the homeowners beach and hotel beach. The free Hawaiian entertainment and crafts at the shopping plaza down the street were a great bonus. We would stay at this unit again without hesitation.
