- english, french
We have loved the Big Island of Hawaii since we first came here on our honeymoon over a decade ago. We fell instantly in love with the climate, the beautiful landscapes, the perfect ocean and the relaxed lifestyle. Over the years we found ourselves coming back here more and more often - always staying in vacation rental properties. These experiences taught us what really mattered in a vacation property. We took this education into account when we designed Pakele Lani. Everything a guest could need is here - and its all the best we could get. No corners were cut. The name Pakele Lani means 'Heavenly Escape' because Hawaii has always been that for us. Our family home is just up the street. We look forward to sharing our corner of paradise with you. Come escape with us from the crowds, bad weather and the stress of the 'real world'.
Owner purchased this House in 2013
Why Owner chose Puako
Vacations are about comfort and relaxation for everyone. The best thing about this property is the variety of different spaces that allow people to enjoy themselves without tripping over one-another. The private pool in the back yard is great for cooling off while sun-bathing - or for the kids to play nearby at the end of the day. Nothing compares to lying in a completely private back-yard spa under a night sky filled with an impossible number of stars... and it's just ten feet from the master bedroom. The separate family room has ample entertainment for all ages and is located away from the great room - which itself has perfectly comfy chairs, a large sofa and a monster TV. And, of course, the Ohana is the ultimate private escape. A completely separate structure for those members of your party who need/deserve their own space. We wanted a premium property that would satisfy the most discerning guests - ourselves. This is the result of our decade long search for the ideal property and our uncompromising selection of amenities and decor. We hope you love it as much as we do - and open our hearts to your suggestions to make Pakele Lani live up to its name.
What makes this House unique
Three pools! A private pool in the back yard, and across the street a huge community pool where the kids can hang out with new friends, while you work out in the 1/4 Olympic (12.5 yards) lap pool. Privacy! No shared bathrooms in this house. No neighbors can see into the main house thanks to rock walls, dense foliage and the property placement on a golf course fairway. Better still, the Ohana and Princess rooms are well away from the main living spaces. This allows some people to sleep while others socialize. The kitchen! Only the good stuff. The owner is an avid chef. All the right tools are there and they are all best-in class. In many cases we bought several different models of an appliance. The best ones are in Pakele Lani. The others went on Craigs List or eBay. The Beach Club! Right up the road, the private Beach Club is never crowded. It's sheltered from wind and waves so the snorkeling and paddle boarding are always great. The full service restaurant and bar seal the deal. The other beach! The Holoholokai Beach Park is an easy walk away. The tide pools and unspoiled coastline are magnificent for beach-combing, surfing, or advanced snorkeling. A grassy picnic area with tables and bathrooms is right next to the surf. The sunsets! The huge glass doors of the great room face directly to the west. Every night we get a different spectacular sunset over the golf course and ocean.

Thank You So Very Much!!!
Lynn and Etienne are wonderful owners/managers, quick to respond and very accommodating. Their home and ohana were beautiful and outfitted with every amenity possible! The "extras" such as bikes,toys, paddle boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and especially the neighborhood electric vehicle were wonderful! Loved the pool, hot tub, beach club and community pool too. Our whole family of 6 adults and 5 kids had a fantastic vacation!
Ohana Relaxation with Fun
I grew up on Big Island. This home is
Perfect for bringing our Sons and their families to visit and connect again to our Island Life. The Owners living nearby allow quick response to any questions. I loved that they offer Concierge services; like arriving with my grocery list items, already in the fridge for our hungry group of nine.
The house has everything you could need. The activity Toys and NEV vehicle were such a Bonus to our daily plans. We love the Access to the Private Mauna Lani Beach and Na’pua Restaurant. Location is great. We were even able to watch July 4 th fireworks in Waikaloa from the backyard pool. We will definitely plan another Big Island Ohana Vacay at Pakele Lani again. Mahalo Nui Loa, RSE
Amazing home and location.
This home had literally everything you could ever need to make your vacation a wonderful memory. I was very lucky to find this rental
early summer family time
The owners of the property were very helpful upon check-in and when we had an issue with the garage door. The property is lovely and spacious with so many toys for children as well as beach equipment for adults. Having the NEV in addition to our van was helpful for getting our large group to the beach or the grocery store, especially if everyone wasn't headed to the same place!
The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are as well. Some of the main living areas could have used a bit more detailed cleaning, something that the owners may not have known was being missed. This property has so many options for swimming and touring about, with public beaches being about 10-15 minutes away. We truly enjoyed our stay and appreciate the hospitality of E and L!
