This large 2 bedroom/ 2 bath home has enormous square footage, vaulted bamboo ceilings and a huge wrap around deck. New furnishings, top of the line appliances, gourmet kitchen and so much more… There is a king size punee on the downstairs patio…if you have a couple of teenagers that want an outdoor sleeping experience in Hawaii!
The master bedroom has a beautiful adjoining bathroom with a walk in shower and double sinks. The second bedroom is very private because of the layout with the living room and kitchen in the center of the house. The beautiful gourmet kitchen is open, so that you can converse with your family and friends while you are preparing meals. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room with a DVD player. You can check your email or surf the web on the deck with Wifi.
Beautiful teak dining table seats six on the deck and there are teak chaise lounge chairs, too. Enjoy outdoor dining with the gas grill for your fresh island catch. Great for a family, two couples or just a romantic getaway for two.
You can see Mauna Kea from the back and the ocean is just across the street for daily snorkeling or diving. The largest white sand beach on the island is just 5 minutes by car and there are five star resorts near by with golf, spa and other amenities. Great surf spot at the end of the street and the whales are visible from November through April.

Because puako (pu-ah-ko) is the only small, quaint oceanfront community on the kohala coast of the big island. It is 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, as well as, beach 69 at wailea bay.
Puako is conveniently located for enjoying 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, fine dining, shopping and world class golf courses. Kohala Divers and Ocean Sports 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 desire, with the exception of viewing the volcano which is a 3 hour drive.
Several fabulous beaches are 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.
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 45 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 60 feet from your doorstep with crystal blue water that is 72-76 degrees year round.
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.
My husband, our two year old daughter and my brother stayed at this property for the second part of our big island vacation. The first half we stayed in one of the large resorts and we all wished we stayed at this property for the entire vacation. It is very unique and truly a Hawaiian experience. You feel as if you are in a modern treehouse. It is a clean, comfortable and fun property. It feels very spacious because of the unique layout ( kitchen in center and bedrooms on either side). It would also be a great property for two couples. The house has everything you need. The amenities in the home are 5 star, you can tell the owner/builder paid attention to every detail. Awesome kitchen for cooking and great modern grill on the deck for BBQ. The surrounding community is a quaint Hawaiin neighborhood. The beach is right across the street, with lots of tide pools and amazing sunsets. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We really enjoyed our stay at Hale Ke Alaula. We love the location and the quiet neighborhood right across the street from access to the water. Picking up the key and finding the house went seamlessly. The house was a great size - lots of room for all 4 of us. The house was equipped with a great kitchen and the washer and dryer were very convenient. We LOVED the spacious deck - it is exactly as pictured. We hope to visit again next spring!
Thanks very much to Aloha Debbie for making everything go so smoothly!
Super airy and open floor plan involving a lower locking entrance and a house with something like 12 double doors you open and can leave open to provide air-flow, birdsong, easy flow from outside to inside. Great furnishings, bathrooms, and kitchen. Not so much ocean view, but great trees, and walkable to typical Puako rocky coastal access--but great areas for ocean gazing right across the street. Wear your shoes inside the house because the flow from deck to inside is seamless and the floors get dirty quickly. Easy short drive to Waikaloa, Mauna Lani, Kawaihi, and Waimea dining and food shopping. What a relaxing, beautiful, truly tropical down-to-earth but luxurious vacation house. We'd stay again in a minute.
Whale watching from November - April
