    Our family style beachfront home was completed in January 2018. We purchased the property in 1998, and it was our family camp ground for almost two decades. Now, with a beautiful new home, it is truly the perfect get away! We spend most open weekends at the house; continually improving the landscaping and fine tuning details so that the house has everything you need to enjoy your stay.

    The house is located on a spacious lot with many mature coconut and Milo trees (Native hardwood), royal palms and fragrant plumeria. Unlike many beachfront homes in Puako, we have a sand on the beach in front of the house and access to deeper water for swimming, surfing, snorkeling or kayaking. There is also a large "keiki pool" a protected tidal pool perfect for wading and for young children to swim and play in the water. The house is truly beachfront, with the sand and ocean at your doorstep.

    Although technically all waterfront property in Hawaii below the highest wash of the waves is public property, our little beach is as private and secluded as you can find on any developed shoreline. Because it is difficult to walk to our property from the public access trails, it's almost a guarantee that you will see more turtles than people along our little stretch of beach. You may see an occasional throw net fisherman pass by, but it is unlikely you will see as many as six beach walkers on any given day.

    The house is elevated eight feet above the ground which gives us unparalleled views of the ocean as you look across the channel toward Mt. Haleakalā on the island of Maui. We also have beautiful mountain views of the 4 major mountains on the Big Island; Kohala, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai. The large open and shady space under the house is always cool and a pleasant space to relax. It is bordered by lush green lawns on both side of the house. There is an excellent Kitchen Aid propane bbq, a small drink refrigerator, picnic table, ping pong table and lounge chairs.

    The interior has beautiful custom wood detailing throughout the house including natural wood flooring locally milled from coconut trees that were removed from the lot to make room for the construction of our house and beautiful oversized African Sapele wood baseboards. All the shelving, window and door trims are made from Milo, Koa and Eucalyptus trees from the Puako house lot and our mauka property above Kailua-Kona in Holualoa.

    The Puako General Store is a half mile ...

    The house exceeded all of our expectations. It is beautiful, perfectly laid out and fully stocked for a relaxing or activity filled vacation. We took advantage of snorkel gear, beach supplies, puzzles and board games. We also had no problem cooking a small Thanksgiving dinner in the well-appointed kitchen. The backyard beach is the real draw though. We spent ours beach combing and swimming in the tidal pond. There is wonderful snorkel right there as well, but it can be a bit tricky to access due to the surf and reefs. However, with some effort we managed it with our two children under 11. Perhaps our favorite part of the beach was the green sea turtles who visited every evening. They made the place feel pretty magical. Although we really didn’t need anything, Nancy was very communicative and helpful. We hope to return to her lovely property again someday!

    We had such a great trip and the house was possibly the highlight. It was a perfect spot for us and Nancy was so welcoming. I can't imagine it being more perfect for our Hawaii experience.

    My family has traveled extensively and we always have a lovely time. This home and location stand out as simply perfect. The location is stunning in private, but close to amenities, restaurants and tourist destinations on the big island if desired, we would love to stay here again, and we rarely say that as there’s so many places to go and see, thank you so much for sharing your lovely home

    A quiet and gorgeously appointed house in a quiet and beautiful area. House was clean and well appointed. A lovely deck facing the ocean was a wonderful spot to eat our home cooked meals. We enjoyed the little ‘pool’ made up of a natural lava flow and the snorkeling just beyond. The owner Nancy was gracious and accommodating. All in all a wonderful property and location.
