WAIPUNALEI (Puako Beach Drive): Waipunalei means 'fresh water spring surrounded by a lei of foliage. This describes #82 Puako. It has a natural fresh water spring on half the property with a variety of fish and birds. One must cross a footbridge from the car parking area to the cottage.
This means a cooler, cleaner property, as the water flushes itself . Fish or birds devour any bugs as the tides alter the depth of the pond. Native Milo,Coconut,and Hala trees (coveted island woods) grow softly around the outlines of the pond, adding shade, greenery without a heavily landscaped yard, and nests for native birds.
