  • Puako Oceanfront on sandy beach with coconut palms!

    Hale Alaula, or House of the Sunset Glow, is a newly listed and newly renovated cottage located right on a beautiful sandy beach in sunny Puako. As you can see from the pictures, the house is full of modern and newly furnished appliances and furniture. The master bedroom has a king size bed with it's own half bathroom and outdoor shower. Walk out the door from the bedroom into an outdoor shower surrounded by bamboo. A newly renovated full bathroom is attached to the living room area where the punee sleeps two.

Wake up and go to sleep with views of the morning glow and unbelievable sunsets. The living room is also equipped with two punees (Hawaiian day beds) that can sleep two people, ideal for children. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new stainless steel appliances including a new oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. From the kitchen you can walk out onto the lanai and eat your meals on a new outdoor table. Coral washes up on the Puako's shores and creates a beautiful white sanded beach. The beach in front of Hale Alaula is far enough from any beach access point that few visitors wander by, providing you with plenty of privacy while still allowing you to enjoy the coastline. Just a few doors up shore is an easy access point to climb into the warm Hawaiian waters at the perfect location to experience some of Hawaii's best snorkeling. Directly in front of the beach access point are some undersea arches that are fun to swim around, over, and under. The reef is full of a plethora of different species of fish, starfish, eels, and sometimes rays. Occasionally a pod of dolphins will swim by, and in the winter months you can see the humpback whales breach the surface and hear their song under the water. Puako is famous for its abundance of sea turtles, and just north of Hale Alaula is the "turtle cleaning station," where sea turtles go to let the yellow tang fish to pick algae off of their shells. Take a walk up the shore and you're sure to see plenty of turtles basking in the shallow waters or napping in the sun. Hale Alaula is the perfect Hawaiian home to experience the serenity of the island and the wonders it has to offer, both on land and in the sea.
