    • 1 bedroom
    • 1 bathroom
    • Sleeps 4

    We have a two story residential home, located across the street from the turquoise clear waters of the Pacific ocean.
    Our guest apartment is on the ground floor with its own private entrance through a garden atmosphere into a large screened in porch with plants, table and couch. The apartment is 1000sf with a King size bed with soft bamboo sheets and air-conditioning in the bedroom with additional cooling fans throughout. The apartment is ideal for three adults or two adults and two kids, max. Four adults is not recommended as the pullout couch bed in the living room is not really designed for two adults, in my humble opinion.
    The back door leads to a bucolic outdoor porch setting with a breakfast table, birds galore, a barbecue and a small fenced in yard with beautiful views of adjacent wild State land and magnificent Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and the Kohala Mountains beyond.
    No fire engines, no police car sirens, nothing but a peaceful atmosphere.
    We provide our guests with snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella and a wonderful breakfast spread (heavy on fresh fruit). With advance notice, we are happy to arrange rentals for any water equipment that we don't have, including kayaks, paddle boards, surf boards, and scuba gear. Bicycles are also available for rentals.
    The large living/dining area includes a small kitchen island and has been remodeled with new wood flooring, paint and carpets. It is quite lovely, comfortable and inviting; a very homey, cool and spacious environment with soft paint colors. Some say its more spacious than the pictures show. The air-conditioning in the bedroom and fans in the other rooms take care of any heat issues.

    Thank you....

    The apartment is spacious, comfortable and homey. This is not a high end modern experience, but a cozy and relaxed retreat. The bed is very comfy, bathroom shower newish, and the apartment is very clean. The proprietor, Bailey, is gracious and kind. We felt more like his personal guest than a renter. A lovely experience.

    Had a wonderful time. Close to everything we needed at Kohala. Spent the days diving, snorkelling the local beaches and sampling the great bars and restaurants nearby. We are hoping to return soon again

    We had a great time at Puako and around. We were welcomed with a delicious fruit plate ! Many wonderful beaches. Watching turtles just few steps away. My daughter had fun feeding birds every morning and afternoon, amazing how colorful and pretty ! Thank you for hosting us.

    A lovely & comfortable home away from home. Love, love, love the attention to details. The fresh fruit awaiting us in the fridge was so kind and amazingly delicious. We have stayed many places on the big Island and this was my favorite. You can hear and see the ocean from the front window! Perfect location for walking along the shoreline path and to many beaches. The screened lanai was a tropical oasis. Our host Bailey was so kind and communicative. We would love to stay here again.

    Wonderful on all accounts. The listing info is 100% accurate. Perfect size for 2 adults. Generous host - that fruit plate was to die for! Close to Hapuna beach (best beach imo) - get there early though. Walk across the road to beach access points to see tide pools and resting turtles. The birds are plentiful. We will stay again.

    Excellent location for access to the ocean, we ate in most of the time. Owner was very proactive with staples in the suite and accessable. Thanks Bailey !

    Absolutely splendid stay in an awesome location. It's easy to explore both North and South from the property, and we did. But we mostly just wanted to hang out near Bailey and Baki's lovely property. Wonderful attention to detail in the accommodation and most generous hosts. We loved the fresh flowers and bottled water. Wonderfully quiet location except for all the bird song...absolutely delightful. Multiple beach accesses just a short walk or a short drive away. We highly recommend the property and look forward to returning soon.
