Capture the essence of authentic Puako, just steps away from the ocean while vacationing at artfully designed and decorated Hale ‘Oma’oma’o iki. A mere 200 feet from an amazing beach access, Hale ‘Oma’oma’o iki is located in the middle of Puako, a small vibrant beach community that welcomes guests and locals alike in a friendly, open and relaxed atmosphere.

This inviting, colorful and exceptionally clean cottage has been expertly renovated and restored with fun and playful décor. A simple and well thought out floor plan offers all the essentials needed for an intimate, comfortable, and harmonious dwelling. Filled with light, a rainbow of complimentary colors and new everything, one cannot help but enjoy themselves and delight in this home and setting.

Situated on a large private lot, this lovely cottage also has lush tropical landscaping, a welcoming outdoor shower and two wonderful lanais; one for viewing the sun rise over majestic Mauna Kea and the peaceful Puako kiawe forest, and another for enjoying a refreshing beverage and relishing the day’s adventures.

Come experience Puako's great beachcombing, magnificent sunsets, abundant tide pools, turtles, some of the island's best snorkeling, scuba diving, and favorite surf spots. One can choose between Paniau Beach at one end, Wailea Beach with its white pristine Hawaiian sand and aquamarine ocean at the other, or any of the many beach access points that dot scenic Puako Beach Drive in between.

Hapuna State Beach Park is also located nearby and is a prime spot for body boarding, sunbathing, sand castle making and one of the best beaches in the entire state.

This is undoubtedly a great spot to enjoy the beauty of the island, a tropical lifestyle, the sights, sounds and scents of Hawaii, only as Puako and the surrounding area can deliver, at an authentic vintage cottage.

Perfect for a couple or those with small children.

                                                      Great location and accommodation for 2.

                                                      Mark B.

                                                      Have visited and done business on the Big Island regularly since 1979. Puako is the best spot on the island for weather and access to both natural and tourist-style visits. This property is perfect for two. Very comfortable and well-maintained. Chukars and turkeys in the yard and the ocean acrosss the road. Highly-recommended.

                                                      Puako Paradise

                                                      A guest from The Dalles, ORThe Dalles, OR

                                                      We absolutely loved this peaceful little cottage. The bird songs and regular francolin visits made this a magical place for us. Fabulous spot!

                                                      Great for turtle watching

                                                      shelley v.,

                                                      We walked the half mile from the cottage to the market along the lava rock shoreline. We really enjoyed the saltwater pools and the green sea turtles basking on the rocks. We saw more than 20 turtles in that walk alone.

                                                      Charming, Enchanating, Fabulous Location!

                                                      mary l.

                                                      Loved our stay! Well maintained, restored cottage with comfortable bed and lovely yard. Wake up to breakfast in the backyard with snow capped Mauna Kea peeking over the purple bougainvilleaa. Greg was great to work with, and we enjoyed staying in a residential neighborhood, steps from the tidal pools and the coastal walk past turtles to the petroglyphs. Also very near Beach 69, Hapuna Beach, Mauna Kea Beach, and more. Greg thoughtfully supplied lots of beach gear - chairs, boogie board, snorkel, towels.

                                                      Wonderful place to relax!

                                                      Cynthia C.

                                                      I could just say ditto to all the previous glowing reviews of this property. It is an inviting, clean, and thoughtfully laid out unit, perfect for a couple. We enjoyed settling in to a comfortable routine quickly, with mornings spent enjoying breakfast on the back patio, enjoying the lovely yard and various birds who came through to visit. Long walks, beach time at the most primo beaches on the Big Island - all were right at our fingertips. Even better to not have to spend much time driving! Gregg was very responsive and easy to work with. And everything in the house is easy to find / make work, so we really didn't need anything from him. Great vacation for us, and we will definitely try to come back to Puako 77!

                                                      All I could ask for

                                                      Andrew M.

                                                      Awesome place. Clean, quiet, and well maintained. The pictures don't do it justice, it's way better in real life!
