House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Nestled comfortably within the graceful curve of Puako Bay, this home site is protected by a whale’s tail-shaped lava outcropping. A light and airy house with cathedral ceilings, it offers peaceful comfort, spectacular views and the gentle sounds of water lapping on the shore. Located well back from Puako Beach Drive, next door to the tiny historic Hokuloa Church, the Whale’s Tail is a surprise delight: nothing from the street side prepares you for the landscaped yard, large and sunny patio, covered lanai…right next to the sandy beach and quiet waters of the Pacific Ocean. Configured to sleep eight in three bedrooms with three baths, the Whale’s Tail offers views of the bay, Maui and its volcanic mountain Haleakala, and our own Kohala Mountains
Combine the sandy beach next to your back yard with the thoughtfully placed windows that give you excellent views from nearly every spot in the house—upstairs and down—and you’ll love the Whale’s Tail for you Hawaii vacation. Not only is the entire ocean-facing wall built with windows, but also an additional row of large clerestory windows above them ensures that the second- floor loft space and bedrooms have ocean and sunset views. The décor throughout the home echoes the beach, ocean, sky and mountain environment: clean white walls, sandy shades of upholstery, blue-gray cabinetry and tiles of sand and sea colors. Original, local artwork—even in the bathrooms—adds to your sense of place in this very special corner of paradise. GE and TAX #097-892-3520-01

Property is exactly as described. Well taken care of, spacious and comfortable. Steps away from an incredible beach. Property managers were very friendly and accommodating. Could not have asked for more! Highly recommended.
The house was wonderful (great layout) and having the water right off the rear yard was awesome. The Puako Road location makes it easy to get anywhere. The reef right behind the house is loaded with turtles, rays, and a wide variety of colorful fish. We had never snorkeled before but it became one of our daily rituals at this home. A very relaxing environment.
As nice as it looks
I hate to say this because I would like to keep this place a secret, but it really is every bit as nice as it looks in the photos.
Beautiful setting right on a sandy beach at Puako Bay
Very nice property! The house is located in Puako, a little village right on Puako Bay. The rooms are all light and roomy. The kitchen is fully equipped, the mattresses are very comfortable and you have a gorgeous view at the bay and a real sand beach for your enjoyment.
Although the property is not located in the “thick of things” you are not very far from some good dining choices , but most of all you are at a very comfortable house in a beautifull setting just screaming at you to relax. However, if you have to do something you will find masks, snorkel and fins in the garage along with some beach toys that allow you to explore marine life right off your beach.
AMAZING home on a STUNNING beach
Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The home had everything we needed and if there was anything we desired then the property management company quickly helped us. The beach in front of this house is nice and sandy and even seems more protected from the elements. I recommend this home for anyone interested in the Puako area.
We had a great time and the house was great (better then great)
The house was laid out really well. The view from our bedroom was more then any one would have expected. We walked out to the beach (just a few steps) and watched the gentle wave hit the lava rock out in the bay.
