This lofty and spacious Hawaiian villa lies on the Gold Coast of Hawaii, the sunniest spot in the state. Aloha Sands is also on the best sandy beach in Puako between the Mauna Kea and Mauni Lani Resorts. Most of Puako has no sandy beach and access to the water is over lava rocks. Because of this natural beach, and sandy bottom swimming lagoon, it is considered the best of the best of Puako by local realtors and rental agents. With 180 degree views of the ocean, bay, the island of Maui plus the Mauna Kea Volcano , this exclusive property has it all.
Built in 2007, this fully-screened tropical pole house construction is an award-winning architectural style, and offers 4 very spacious master bedroom suites ALL WITH OCEAN VIEWS and 4 1/2 baths. There are 3 large, beautifully appointed king masters and 3 1/2 baths in the main house PLUS an additional king master suite and bath in the unattached 2nd-story apartment. ALL BEDROOMS ARE AIR-CONDITIONED.
* THE APARTMENT ALONE IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR RENT. EMAIL OWNER- EXCELLENT RATES.
*RATES ARE BASED ON 8 ADULTS. ADDITIONAL PERSONS ARE WELCOMED UP TO 12, HOWEVER THERE MAY BE ADDITIONAL FEES. EMAIL OWNER FOR EXACT RATES.
The spacious gourmet kitchen, a large and airy great room with media center, den, and grand lanai all have spectacular views of the ocean and are steps away from the beach. ALL BEDROOMS ARE AIR CONDITIONED. The up-scale apartment also boasts a fully-equipped kitchen and spectacular ocean and bay views, and lies within the beach villa's gates and walls.
Two outdoor hot showers in private gardens lead from the garden gates to the sandy beach. Your warm lagoons only steps away- one straight on and another to the right of the property- are only 2-5 feet deep with sandy bottoms and are home to green sea turtles and colorful juvenile fish. The ancient Hawaiians taught their children how to swim and fish in these tidal emerald lagoons, a total plus for this property. A few strokes beyond these reef-protected lagoons is the best snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking in Hawaii. In low tide the tidal pools will inspire, and in January through May, the 45 foot humpback whales will thrill. Morning walks along the two-lane Puako Beach Drive will find you at Puako's famous ancient Hawaiian rock carvings, the largest example of Petroglyphs in the world. There is also a Hawaiian grocery store in very short walking distance with supplies and essentials.
The owner provides a "meet and greet" in the spirit of aloha by a top professional island representative who will check guests in and out, introduce them to the villa, property and neighborhood, and answer any questions they may have.
Concierge service is available upon request.
At Aloha Sands, service is a top priority. The owner provides a professional team on the island - on call 24/7 - to handle any issues that may come up during one's stay so that every moment will be spent enjoying your Hawaiian holiday. Maid service and catering can be arranged at rentor's expense.

Why Marie chose Puako
Puako is a very special place on the Gold Coast of Hawaii between The Mauna Kea and Mauna Lani Resorts with many ammenties and choices for a fun-filled relaxing vacation.
What makes this Villa unique
We are one of a very few properties on the only stretch of sandy beach in residential Puako. The beach is natural and rustic with a tidal-protected lagoon steps from our lanais with access to one of the best snorkeling and scuba diving on the island. Humback whales cruise our reef in front of our villa from January to April, and green sea turtles are common visitors to our lagoon. Our home is beautifully appointed with imported furniture and art. Our views from every room delight the senses all times of the day and all seasons of the year.

Amazing Aloha Sands
Aloha Sands is a spacious Hawaiian style home, handsomely decorated with almost every amenity one could possibly need. The master bath is incredibly huge as well as functional and attractive. The kitchen is delightful and nicely stocked with staples (a surprise...prior rental properties have a required a trip to the grocery even for S&P). The lanai is spacious and there are water views from practically every room. The grandchildren loved staying in the adjacent guest house where they could even fix themselves cereal and milk (stored in the fridge of the mini kitchen...delightful for a bit of extra shuteye for the rest of us!). There is a lovely little beach a very short walk from the house besides the direct water access from the house. Just a wonderful stay and delightful owner.
We are so delighted you enjoyed your stay at Aloha Sands. Mahalo For sharing your experience. Please come see us again you were delightful to work with. Marie
A Wonderful Home Away from Home
We invited our adult children to join us for a Hawaiian holiday, and the house was so perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax, and the spacious kitchen allowed us to enjoy our meals together. Cooking was so easy as the kitchen was very well equipped. We often just sat out on the gorgeous deck watching the ocean, and hearing the many birds singing. We loved seeing the cardinal, and the red crested cardinals on the lawn each day. The snorkelling was awesome (many tang, moray eel, trigger fish, and a sea turtle), and the little ones loved finding the sea urchins in the tide pools. It was a fantastic place to get rejuvenated, and for the three little cousins to bond. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
Dear Elaine, thank you for your review; I am so glad you enjoyed the bit of old Hawaii our home and gardens have to offer... so happy the children enjoyed the tide pools and the beach. It is always wonderful for us to share our home with delightful people like you and your family.
nice home near the water
Beautiful house in a great location. Located on what passes for a beach on the Big Island, but don't expect Hapuna quality. Lot's of turtles though and you can sit and whale watch. If you are looking for a base from which to explore the island, this is great and away from the crowds
John, we are so happy you and your family enjoyed old Hawaii at our beach villa, "Aloha Sands." You came at a great time of year with the humpback whales visiting our part of the Pacific and the other seasons offer wonderful aloha experiences as well. We hope to see you again and thank you for choosing our home for your winter holiday. Best regards, Marie
Perfect in every way
The best beach in Puako and the home was beautiful with 180 degree views of the ocean, bay, sailboats and neighboring island.
Another awesome week in paradise
My wife and I enjoyed another awesome week in paradise (Aloha Sands) The grounds, accomodations, owners and staff are simply the best. Over the last eight years we have stayed up and down the Kohala coast from small private homes to Hapuna Beach Prince and there is no better place to stay than Aloha Sands. The little bay (50 yards away) is excellent for kayaking, turtle watchers, swimming and just relaxing on the beautiful uncrowded beach.The owners and staff are as attentive as any 5 star hotel, we could not have enjoyed our stay more!
So delighted you enjoyed your Anniversary week, with us.
Thank you for your review and for returning to see us this year.

Hawaiian Paradise Found
The four of us enjoyed our third annual stay at Aloha Sands, in our opinion it is the most beautiful and comfortable home in all of Puako and perhaps the whole Island. It offers a beautiful and relaxing space that is impeccably furnished and well-appointed for the whole family. The location is absolutely amazing! The home is right on a fine white sand beach and one of the best tidepools on the Kona-Kohala Coast. The home has a 180 degree view of the water and the Kohala coast and Puako is convenient to everything: shopping, restaurants, golf, hiking, diving, surfing and especially the magical beaches and tide pools teaming with tropical fish. It is less than a 1 minute walk to the beach for snorkel, wading, diving or a sunset drink. The beach and tide pools right out the back door are a perfect place to sit and contemplate life and there is no diving necessary to enjoy the beautiful underwater wildlife including many species of tropical fish and sea turtles. The owners Dom and Marie are wonderful and provide everything you need to have a spectacular vacation. We hope to return many times to enjoy this wonderful house and the surrounding areas. It is truly a Hawaiian paradise.
Paradise found is having guests like you. We love sharing our home, beach and tide pools with you and hope to see you back soon.
Marie and Dom
