Oceanfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home With Children's Loft

Travelers, please note, the nightly rate for this oceanfront home is dependent on the number of people staying. “Kaiakea” means 'expansive view of the sea.' This home provides exactly that.

Designed by the artistic hand of a resident architect to make the most of its seaside location, this home is kama’aina (child of the land, longtime resident) owned and loved for 30 years and now continuing under new, local ownership. It combines the essential beach-house views of ocean, honu (sea turtles), wintertime whales and striking sunsets with the best amenities that a luxury home offers. With two first-floor master bedroom suites, two upstairs “view suites” with private balconies, and a sleeping loft, you’ll find plenty of space for both solitude and community for your extended family or group. , four-bath home with additional sleeping loft. The home features all the amenities you could want including a full kitchen with two refrigerators and two dishwashers, comfortable beds and bedding, TV's, Blue Ray player and high-speed wireless internet. Relax on the spacious, covered, ocean side lanai for meals, reading, napping or just plain good conversation with family any time of the day. Particularly, stunning are the colorful sunsets over the Pacific. Winter months, enjoy the humpback whale show right out front. State of Hawaii GE/TA tax number #018-299-2896-01

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was a fantastic fit for our large family! Being right at the ocean, we so enjoyed the breezes and the sunsets and the night sky. One moonless night we saw the Milky Way and falling stars from our deck! At high tide, we watched eels. There were one to five Green Sea Turtles (Hona) sunning themselves everyday within twenty feet of the seawall. At low tide, we walked out to enjoy the tide pool life. (You can climb over the wall, or take the easier public access path one house down.) If you felt like relaxing, there were enough places for everyone to spread out on the deck, including a hammock... and we can't forget the hot tub.



The house was well apportioned, with everything you would need for a group of up to ten people. There were utensils, dinnerware, wine glasses, serving platters, drink glasses, and appliances galore. The second refrigerator was stocked with a bag of ice and many cold packs; the main refrigerator had numerous condiments from former renters which really helped out for the first few days. Two Papayas made sure all of our needs were met, and on our first day even brought out a second propane tank for the outdoor grill so we wouldn't run out!



We would wholeheartedly recommend renting this home! The management really went out of their way to make us happy and comfortable! The location was perfect for the things we enjoy doing: relaxing at the shore, walking to the Petroglyphs, walking to the Fairmont Orchid for dinner, perfect snorkeling at the part of Hapuna Beach that's right off Puako Drive, bird watching, and taking Ocean Conservation and Seahorse tours at NELHA. And all just 30 minutes from Kona's airport.

Our favorite spot in Puako

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love staying at this house in Puako. We have returned multiple times over the years and it remains our favorite vacation rental on the Big Island. The house is very comfortable and perfect for large families. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the bathrooms are well-stocked with amenities and plenty of towels. The kitchen has wonderful appliances and is very thoughtfully stocked with every utensil, pot, pan, bowl, sheet pan you could need. The laundry appliances are new and the laundry room is well-stocked; we also love using the clothesline outside to dry our clothes in the breeze. The lanai facing the ocean is a perfect spot for breakfast and has tons of seating.and a hammock for relaxing. Can you tell we love this house?

A shout out to the housekeepers who keep everything spotless and who have always been incredibly kind and efficient. A big thank you to Marley and Crystal who were so helpful and promptly answered all of our questions during our stay. We look forward to returning again soon!

Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is, by far, the best home we have stayed in on the Big Island. This was our first time staying this far north but we LOVED it!!! Puako is quiet and far from traffic/street noise. 4 King rooms (two with outdoor showers) was perfect for the 4 couples. No kids on this trip but 4 twin beds in a loft area if needed.

The house was beautiful inside and out. Beautiful kitchen, furnishings, dining room, lanai and backyard. Less then 1/2 mile from on of the best snorkeling spots on the island - yes, even as good as City of Refuge or Captain Cooks.

Turtles on the other side of our seawall every day. Porpoise a little off shore. BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS!!!

Puako Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful time with our family enjoying the house that we have stayed at many times over the years. Everyone had enough room to be alone if they wanted, but as usual we found us all congregating on the lanai looking out for whales and turtles and enjoying wonderful sunsets. We will be back.

Stellar

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many vacation houses over the years but this one stands out in every way. Location, taste of furnishings, thoughtfulness regarding guests' comfort, everything is perfect. The kids loved the turtles and whales in the ocean, as well as the geckos in the garden. The adults loved the many places to curl up with a book while listening to the cooling breeze. Perfection!
