2016-17 FALL AND WINTER DEALS! . HOLIDAY DATES JUST REOPENED! READ ON,,,,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.

Marie purchased this villa in 2006
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.
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.
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.
Our family of 10 spent the week of 2/9-16 at Aloha Sands. It was a phenomenal vacation for us all. The pictures do not do justice to the home or the surroundings. What was highly impressive is how well provisioned the home was when we arrived. We were constantly and pleasantly surprised by the presence of items, whether for kitchen, bathroom, lanai or beach, that we thought we would have to purchase on arrival. On top of all that Marie, the owner, along every step of the way, did everything she could to create a great experience for us. She was highly responsive and gave us the benefit of the doubt on any issue that arose. We could not have asked for a more friendly and understanding owner to work with. Bottom line, this trip created wonderful memories for our family that will never be forgotten. There is no higher endorsement than that.
Our family and friends (group of 12) from South Dakota spent a wonderful 10 days at this lovely home on the beach in Puako in Feb 2016. The house and loft apartment combined had plenty of room for us all to be together and also to have private space when desired. The lanai
is very large and comfortable and the beach and ocean views are spectacular. We watched the whales, the waves and the stars from the lanai. The nearby beach is sandy and the slope is gradual and thus is very family friendly. Our snorkelers, paddle boarders and kayakers were constantly entertained. Every evening we made the short trek to the beach to watch the magnificent sunsets.
The views from inside the house are also lovely, especially from the kitchen, dining, living and master bedroom areas. The kitchen is panoramic and very well equipped with plenty of room for multiple cooks and guests around the island. The large dining room table and the lanai table combined provide plenty of dining seating for a big group.
The owner is very hands on in a good way and the local crew was very welcoming and great at follow-through with anything we asked about. The owner really is only a phone call or email away and responds very quickly and thoroughly (we only had a couple minor needs but they were dealt with immediatlely). Thank you Marie.
We had a wonderful time in this lovely setting and will definitely be back again.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in the Studio for our annual trek to the Big Isle and we were treated to a wonderful experience. The studio is perfect for a couple and very well appointed. The view from the lanai of the bay is outstanding. The owner is VERY attentive and responds quickly (thanks Marie). We kayaked every morning and saw at least 30 turtles during our week and a baby manta! Aloha Living Services delivered a kayak and beach cruisers (thanks Kevin) the latter used to cruise PB drive and get acquainted with the neighbors! A fabulous week at an awesome location!
We had a very large group with 11 extended family members. Our stay was wonderful. The house was comfortably able to accommodate us both for sleeping areas and just plain " hanging out". The setting is gorgeous and quite private. It took me a while to figure the snorkeling out ( you need to swim out of the lagoon to the first reef but once there we saw great things). This was a fabulous vacation and a perfect spot for a large group.
I hope that someday we can come back and do this again.
The location was stunning! The grounds were beautiful with the smell of plumeria in the air. You will have the best snorkeling experience on the island...turtles, spotted eagle rays, moray eels and all species of Hawaiian fish and invertebrates right in your backyard.
It was one of our favorite vacations and we would love to come back again!
