FABULOUS OCEAN GETAWAY AT AUTHENTIC PUAKO BEACH COTTAGE

Puako Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Capture the essence of authentic Puako, just steps away from the ocean while vacationing at artfully designed and decorated Hale ‘Oma’oma’o iki. A mere 200 feet from an amazing beach access, Hale ‘Oma’oma’o iki is located in the middle of Puako, a small vibrant beach community that welcomes guests and locals alike in a friendly, open and relaxed atmosphere.

This inviting, colorful and exceptionally clean cottage has been expertly renovated and restored with fun and playful décor. A simple and well thought out floor plan offers all the essentials needed for an intimate, comfortable, and harmonious dwelling. Filled with light, a rainbow of complimentary colors and new everything, one cannot help but enjoy themselves and delight in this home and setting.

Situated on a large private lot, this lovely cottage also has lush tropical landscaping, a welcoming outdoor shower and two wonderful lanais; one for viewing the sun rise over majestic Mauna Kea and the peaceful Puako kiawe forest, and another for enjoying a refreshing beverage and relishing the day’s adventures.

Come experience Puako's great beachcombing, magnificent sunsets, abundant tide pools, turtles, some of the island's best snorkeling, scuba diving, and favorite surf spots. One can choose between Paniau Beach at one end, Wailea Beach with its white pristine Hawaiian sand and aquamarine ocean at the other, or any of the many beach access points that dot scenic Puako Beach Drive in between.

Hapuna State Beach Park is also located nearby and is a prime spot for body boarding, sunbathing, sand castle making and one of the best beaches in the entire state.

This is undoubtedly a great spot to enjoy the beauty of the island, a tropical lifestyle, the sights, sounds and scents of Hawaii, only as Puako and the surrounding area can deliver, at an authentic vintage cottage.

Perfect for a couple or those with small children.

We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this adorable cottage with our two little ones. The location was perfect!!! Really close to some of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii!! Across the street we found some great little spots for the kids to wade and met a family of sun bathing turtles. The cottage was clean and beautifully decorated. The big grassy yard outside was perfect for the kids and the owners very thoughtfully left a box of toys for the kids that came in very handy. We had one of our best holidays and are already planning our next trip back!

Dive Vacation !

  • 5 of 5
My son and I came to Hawaii and wanted to stay in Puako, we have friends who always stay in the area and swear by it - we were not disappointed ! Close to Kohala Dive center and in such a great, quiet part of the island. All the shoreline access sites are full of turtles and the views are amazing. Ironically, on day two our dive boat drove back down to Puako and we spent the day diving right in front of the house ! The house itself is just great, charming and very comfortable. I still had to work so was glad for the speedy WiFi, the bedroom is big, the foldout couch comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped and the outside shower was really nice, hot water came fast. The back yard was excellent, huge and made for a great spot to do Yoga in front of Mauna Kea. Laurel was great, welcomed us warmly and was a pleasure as a host. My son and I can't wait to come back. Thanks Laurel !

Super Sweet Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Puako is a charming neighborhood and we couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend our 16 days on the Big Island. The cottage is super clean and well equipped without clutter. Drinking coffee on the back lanai in the early morning sun was a real treat. Best location on the island if you're looking for quiet and privacy away from crowded tourist areas. Loved the outdoor shower! We found fabulous nearby beaches and local hangouts on our own, which we enjoyed discovering, but the property manager, Laurel, was also very willing to share her knowledge of the area. Would definitely return ~ perfect for a couple.

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect getaway cottage. The views are stunning and the accommodations have been top notch. The location is perfect. There are multiple choices for beaches (traditional sand or salt/pepper lava rock) and there is a General Store within walking distance for all your grocery and beach needs. We can't wait to come back. The owner was very helpful with answering questions in a timely manner.

Perfect home base

  • 5 of 5
We loved our 5-night stay at this cottage. The yard, bedroom and living room are very spacious and the king bed (a real one - not 2 twins put together) was very comfortable. This was the perfect home base for my husband, 2 year old son and myself. The outdoor shower was very comfortable and a great idea after returning from a beach day. The cottage is a short drive to the beaches of A Bay, Beach 69 and Hapuna, among other sites. Walking across the street and down 2 houses gets you to a path to a small beach of limited sand, small rocks and tide pools. This was a great play spot for our son during the day and an amazing spot for all ages during low tide. Late afternoon we walked among the rocks and saw tons of sea creatures (cucumbers, urchins, crabs and several green sea turtles basking on the rocks). Magical! The guest book had several other good suggestions that we missed; make sure to read it for other good tips!

There is no stereo or bedroom clock, although those were minor issues since most people travel with smart phones nowadays. And the curtains in the bedroom were very light. Only an issue if you want to sleep in or are used to a dark room. Not a concern with a 2 year old!

We can't say enough good things about the helpful manager Laurel. She had tons of great suggestions and promptly answered a zillion questions, both in advance and during our stay. She also made unexpected but most appreciated accommodations for our son, like supplying a special bed and a box of toys.

We would definitely return and wholeheartedly recommend this cottage!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is so cute and comfy. It's tiny, but perfect for 2 people (or 4 with kids). It's private, with pretty landscaping around and large lanai out back (and a small one out front). We came here because I had a conference at Hilton Waikoloa, which was about 15-20 min away. It was convenient but away from the hustle and bustle of that super touristy area. We felt like we were immersed in local life in this small, cute community with lots of 50's style homes. We especially enjoyed the local beach ("69") which is really pretty and not over-crowded. PS - the outdoor shower was awesome - what a way to start the day: out in the fresh air, watching the sun come up and the resident wild turkeys displaying in the yard! I also appreciated the responsiveness and generosity of the manager who brought me her own ironing board and iron to borrow since I was attending a conference. Mahalo!
