Puako Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Located at the end of a quiet road, in the sleepy village of Puako on Hawaii’s Big Island is a villa whimsically named, Home of the Hula Moon. This two-story mansion affords its guests luxury accommodations in four bedrooms with a maximum capacity of ten guests. In a secluded setting, guests will delight in the gorgeous ocean views and the lush tropical greenery that surrounds this whole island.

Guests who expect nothing but the best from their luxury vacations will not be disappointed by Home of the Hula Moon whose amenities are both elite in nature and abundant in number. Aquatic options include a large swimming pool and smaller tide pools. The home also offers Wi-Fi access. Step onto the fully-furnished, covered porch facing the green lawns and the blue sea. Perhaps some alfresco dining tonight?

The two-story great room with a large vaulted ceiling defines the center of Home of the Hula Moon. Here is where the media facilities, a den and broad access to the lanai come together. The interiors are also adorned with Hawaiian and Polynesian inspired portraits and objets d’art amid a relaxing color scheme. The kitchen can provide for any occasion, is furnished with the latest appliances and offers a large layout.

Home of the Hula Moon’s four large bedrooms are situated at opposite ends of the house for optimal privacy. The master suites are dubbed Kona and Kohala and each have king size mattresses, full en-suite bathrooms with large open air showers, dressing rooms, breathtaking ocean views and direct access to the lanai. The Aloha Suite has a new king size bed and charming plantation-style seating, while the Turtle Suite has twin beds – perfect for children.

New visitors to Hawaii will soon find out that adventure and discovery are literally around every corner in this tropical paradise. Sea turtles and other marine wildlife often come up right behind Home of the Hula Moon. Those who wish to try their hand at scuba diving or surfing have the opportunity a mere five minutes down the road from the villa. Enjoy your stay with Luxury Retreats!

The house was the perfect setting for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size and configuration for an extended family group. The setting is spectacular, the furnishings tasteful, and the art is out of the ordinary. We liked being embedded in a thriving community with some diversity. It was great to have access to bicycles and all the beach equipment. Internet access is a plus. I especially like that three of the four bedrooms are equal or nearly so in amenities. I hate it when houses have one nice bedroom and the rest are sub-par. The fourth bedroom seemed to be hotter than the rest of the house... maybe the breeze is blocked by the large trees to the west.

We had an amazing stay and sufficiently relaxed fully.

  • 5 of 5

Home of the Hula Moon is a beautiful location on the Big Island of Hawaii. The house is fabulous with a well stocked kitchen for cooking. The beach was perfect and the turtles rested daily on the beach. We saw a lot of whales too! The home is beautifully furnished and has all amenities. We will definitely considering a return trip to this beautiful paradise. Thanks to Steve and Michelle, our personal concierges for making the trip so amazing.

A dream spot for a Hawaii vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The House of the Hula Moon is an exceptional place to spend time in Hawaii with a beach, snorkeling, yard, pool, privacy, and plenty of room. The house itself is a work of art with polished Brazilian wood floors, etched glass doors, Nepalese carpets, and original paintings. With the bedrooms at separate corners of the house and individual baths, privacy is assured. It is also stocked with everything you could possibly need from a coffee grinder through bicycles and plenty of towels. Turtles basked in the sun on the rocks just a few yards from the edge of the beach every day and the landscaping is meticulous. Easy access to the Fairmont/Mauna Lani resort guarantees access to resort amenities, if you wish. The neighborhood is quiet, but friendly. Perfect spot!

Paradaise found at Home of the Hula Moon!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a special place to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday with friends. I began my search not knowing what I was looking for or where we would end up. When I came across the Home of the Hula Moon I knew I had found THE place. As good as the pictures and descriptions were the reality of the property is stunning. The casual elegance and peaceful vibe is amazing and relaxing. The Chef in our group found the kitchen to be very well equipped. A great time was had by all and we look forward to a return trip.
