Overview

Puako House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Located on the pristine and perennially sunny shores of Puako, a quaint oceanfront community on the Big Island's Kohala Coast, Pili Pono is a recently built 5,384 sq. ft waterfront vacation home offering the a truly private and luxurious experience. Three of the four bedrooms are suites with king beds and private bathrooms featuring indoor/outdoor marble showers and the fourth, a perfect nest for the keiki (children), hosts two mahogany bunk beds and comfortable seating around a big screen HDTV. And while they all have AC, all of the suites and the bunkroom feature gorgeous ocean views with turtles, whales (seasonally) and daily sunsets on offer.

After a day of fun in the sun, relax in one of several recreational areas. While the upstairs living room features a pool table, bar, ideal seating for a large HDTV and huge pocket doors that open to the lanais and offer more epic ocean views, the media room with AC hosts a digital home theatre system with a wall size HD projector screen and DVD player.

The gourmet kitchen boasts all Miele appliances, granite countertops, and is complete with a built-in-convection oven, latter/espresso maker, range top, steam cooker, microwave, trash compactor and dishwasher. And if you'd rather watch someone else work his or her magic on your behalf, let us coordinate a private chef to give you some well-deserved culinary coddling.

The outdoor perks at Pili Pono are boundless. Fit for outdoor lounging, there are two fabulous gazebos with daybeds on the lanai, a large hot tub, a shallow dipping pool and a hot freshwater shower. And with the ocean's edge right outside your door snorkeling is as simple as making the decision to meander the 150 feet down to the shore to do so.

When venturing off property, just a mile away are two of Hawaii's top beaches—Hapuna Beach and Wailea Beach. While Hapuna was voted best beach in Hawaii by Conde Nast, both offer ideal conditions for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding and witnessing a variety of sea life from green turtles to pods of dolphins to breaching humpback whales (seasonally). And when the waves are up, Paniau—a nearby surf spot at the end of Puako Beach Drive—offers some true Hawaiian wave riding. As well, due fresh water run off and strong coastal currents, the waters around Puako are extremely clear and ideal for underwater visibility.

Located in the only waterfront residential community in South Kohala, outside of a resort area, the property is within five minutes of the Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani resorts and the Hapuna Prince hotel, which provide numerous amenities such as tennis, golf, health spa, fitness center, pool, restaurants and shopping.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just got back from 2 heavenly weeks at this home! We live near the beach in Newport, CA- but this beachfront home really took our breathe away. As ocean/beach lovers this place was perfect to embark on a kayak/snorkel adventure. The hapuna beach down the street is also great! The photos don't seem to do it justice- although everyday we kept snapping photographs of the beach, sunsets, turtles, infinity pool, upstairs view of the ocean, etc. What a gem!

A not so enchanting stay!

  • 1 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was very unhelpful.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

I was very happy with the location.

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The Pili Pono house could be an amazing vacation stay but poor management and infringement of quiet enjoyment and no air conditioning in the house except the bedrooms controlled by one unit made it a most unpleasant stay!

Family Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Puako for our 3 week extended family vacation for over 15 years now and this is by far the most luxurious and well designed house we have stayed in thus far. The pictures on the web do not do it justice - it is much more beautiful and spacious in person! It was perfect for our group of 3 couples and 4 children. The kids loved having their own room with bunk beds, beanbag chairs, a TV, and walkout to the oceanfront lanai. Adults loved having their own private bedroom suite each with a gorgeous oceanfront walkout. The lanai beds and hot tub were a real oasis where we were able to all relax together after a day at the beach and watch for whales jumping at sunset. We are real foodies who enjoy making local dishes, so having the large gourmet kitchen was ideal for our group. We also loved the bar next to the kitchen where we could make blender drinks and make use the extra dishwashers. The upstairs movie room and living space was a perfect retreat for the evenings. The house is well-equipped with snorkel and beach gear as well as sports gear for playing on the lawn. We love running and walking on Puako road and stopping in to watch the surfers at the end of the road and continuing on to the resorts. We also frequent the lava rock pools at shore access #118 that offer incredible snorkeling, and a nice swim for all ages. The owners have provided surfwalkers in every size for walks along the lava rock shores of Puako which is always an adventure with sleeping turtles, colourful reef fish, and ocean life everywhere. The Mauna Kea and Hapuna are so close for spending a day at 2 of the best beaches in the world or dining in the fabulous restaurants. This house is also just a short walk to the general store which is really convenient. The owners and Niki, the property manager, were really responsive to any request, and had really thought of everything to make our stay wonderful. We would come back again in a heartbeat!!

Stunning Oceanfront Estate in gorgeous Puako

  • 5 of 5

I can only say, that this is simply the most gracious and inviting home I have seen in Puako, it is a 10!

Luxury in every detail, from the exquisite gourmet kitchen to the individual suites...not forgetting the two great rooms and media room!

We had a wonderful catered party and being able to sit next to the water, feel the ocean breeze, music, gaze at the stars, it was a night to remember forever! I would come back to get married here, there could not be a better place to gather and enjoy the moment!

This is a home and it accommodates a multi generational family, there is privacy for all!

Gather around the pool table, serve fresh cold drinks and gaze at miles of ocean, soak in the Jacuzzi, watch movies all night in the super lux media room, simply grand! I want to live in this house forever, no one wanted to leave, we will be back!
