Enjoy sunsets from the privacy of the large covered lanai, your own sandy beach and enticing tidepools, and the serenity of the perpetual song of ocean breezes in the trees at this lovely oceanfront setting.
This versatile beachfront home can serve as the perfect romantic getaway for a couple, or comfortably accommodate a family or group of eight. The spacious, nicely manicured lawn and easily accessed beach invite both the playful frolic of children and relaxed lounging of adults. Sharing the beach with resident sea turtles is a daily highlight, and during winter months savor the opportunity to view and listen to the grandeur of the visiting humpback whales from the living room, lanai and backyard.
Choose your dining experience, from the beautiful teak indoor dining table to the comfortable and roomy environs of the ocean side lanai, which extends the length of the main house. Here you will find a beautiful outdoor dining table, cozy lounge chairs, and the pune'e, a large built-in lounging area which can be used for outdoor sleeping for those more adventurous souls.
Each bedroom has its own outside entrance complete with full bathroom. The large master bedroom, with king bed, opens out to the ocean through a sliding glass door and onto its own lanai. One of the other three bedrooms opens out to the ocean and onto its own lanai as well.
First class snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing is available within a short walking distance at Paniau, a gorgeous little bay at the end of Puako.

This review is late, and in order to review the VRBO system made me put in the wrong dates. Our group stayed in this house Dec 2015. And I really wanted to stay here again Jan 2016, but it was rented for 4 months. I've secured my week for Jan 2017 and I realize I was remiss for not writing a review of my first stay.
What drew me to this house was the picture of the lanai in the listing. It is even better than the pics. Sitting in the chairs relaxing overlooking the ocean was perfection.
The house is older like many of the more affordable beach front rentals in the area, but was very clean and well maintained. As is obvious from the photos there are different buildings that house the main living room & kitchen, and bedrooms. The main building with the kitchen has slider glass doors that opened all the way so the living area and the lanai opened up to let airflow and the sounds of the ocean in.
I stayed in the master bedroom and it was simply furnished with a very comfortable bed. And the shower was one of those mounted on the ceilings types that pour the water over you. There was an ocean view out my front sliding doors as the shower wall was about 5 feet tall. It was awesome and my two boys insisted on using it.
My friend staying in the bedroom with the outdoor shower also raved about being outside and looking at the stars.
The kitchen was huge and the 2 refrigerators came in handy. There were plenty of dishes and cooking implements and all in good shape. We used the outside grill a couple of times for making dinner. But we ate dinner out at several of the area restaurants, and mostly just had breakfast and lunch at the house. But if you were a cook who wanted to stay in you are more than covered.
The sunsets at this property were incredible. And I walked the small beach out front several times a day and collected a bunch of beach glass. Plus the snorkeling out front was surprisingly good. You had to time it with the tide to make things easier, but there were so many large turtles picking up coral and smashing it and eating. I've never seen that before and those beaks were huge!
I liked the quiet atmosphere of this house. Even though there are homes on either side due to the building placement and the landscaping it was very private. My whole group was able to relax, laugh and really just enjoy ourselves.
Kalia was easy to work with when booking and it was nice meeting her. I feel fortunate to be able to come back and can't wait.
We were a group of 4 couples, and this was the perfect place to stay. The well-equipped kitchen and huge lanai made it easy to hang out as a group, and the detached bedrooms gave plenty of privacy and quiet places to retreat. You'll need water shoes for the beach, but there were several pairs on hand, along with a beach umbrella and a few beach chairs. The water behind the house has some great snorkeling, actually, with plenty of fish, urchins, and coral. We also snorkeled with sea turtles most every day.
This house is very convenient to Hapuna Beach, which is a great swimming and laying out beach. It's also only about a half hour from Kona-Kailua for a greater variety of restaurants and entertainment.
Our family of 5 took our first trip to Hawaii in March. This home was perfect for us... the beach and the views were excellent. It was quiet and relaxing, and each of our three kids had their own room and bathroom to spread out in and retreat to when they were tired. We used the well-apportioned kitchen for breakfasts and lunches, and then went out to some of the various wonderful restaurants in the evenings. We loved being on the beach and in the water in front of the house. Turtles visited everyday, and we saw fish, eels, crabs, and other creatures as well. Hapuna Beach was less than 10 minutes away for some fun boogie-boarding and people-watching. Kalia was so helpful in planning our stay, as well as tips on places to go. We had a fabulous vacation and would love to come back!
Our family of six adults spent 10 days in this beautiful house on our first ever trip to Hawaii. It was clean, roomy and quiet. We could walk into the ocean and see turtles and beautiful fish any time we wanted. We lost count of the number of breeching wales we saw. Star gazing was amazing. Every thing in the house worked perfectly. Kalia, who manages the property, was just a phone call or email away. If you're looking for a swanky resort, this is not the place for you but it's perfect if you want lots of room, a perfectly stocked kitchen, great washer/dryer setup, a bathroom in each bedroom plus an extra full bath for whatever. When we weren't out hiking or snorkeling, we were planted on the lanai. Just can't say enough about this beautiful, relaxing place. Grab it if you can.
Perfect for us! Our family lives in NZ & Australia and we met here for a holiday catch up. Clean and comfortable; great catering facilities & BBQ; no air con but ceiling fans were all that was needed at night; quite a few beach toys (boogie boards, noodles, chairs umbrellas) and turtles and snorkelling straight off the beach in front. Kalia was friendly, quick to reply to queries and always helpful. Would love to come back...
Our friends got married at the Fairmont, so a few couples got together and rented this home for the long weekend. It was perfect! The Fairmont is easily accessible via pathway along the water. It is a beautiful walk in the evening with the moon/stars. Our group included two couples with children (one family of four and another family of three). The house has a big lanai and a nice grass area (we set up plastic kiddo pool) and easy access to the tidal beach (good for spotting turtles and fish). We also went snorkeling right from the house and saw tons of fish and coral formations. It was very easy to work with Kalia - she is a great host. Bottom line = highly recommended destination!
