    This is the Hawaii you dream about! This little bungalow on the beach is an ideal tropical vacation destination for a couple or a family with children. It is the perfect island get-away for Honeymooners. The house and lanai open to expansive views of the beach, ocean and sunsets year round. The lawn and gardens are lush with native Hawaiian trees and plants including a dozen coconut palms. Start your day sipping your morning coffee on your private lanai while watching for migrating whales (Dec - March) or pods of spinner dolphins that visit the nearby Marine Sanctuary. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in the hammock in the shade of coconut palms or swimming with turtles, snorkeling or scuba diving in one of the best diving spots in Hawaii, the Puako reef, just in front of the hale. (You can read about it in guidebooks) An entrance spot into the ocean is just a few yards down the beach south of Hale Malia. Children will enjoy hours of beach combing and exploring the tidepools. If you are tired of packing/ lugging your family to GO to the beach this is a good place for you - you ARE ON THE BEACH.

    The "classic Hawaiian beach house" -style interior decor is tastefully designed by Fine Design Interiors of Waimea and featured in West Hawaii Today. Home features Mayumi Oda original art in the living room.

    Beaches and Touring the sights of the Island: Puako is conveniently located for visiting the numerous sights of the Big Island from north to south. Numerous Beaches and resorts are within 5 - 20 minutes away from Hale Malia. Closest public beaches: '69' Beach in Waialea Bay (5 minutes) , Hapuna Beach (10 minutes) Driving times to some sights of interest: City of Refuge (south), 1 hr 45 min, Captain Cook/Kealakekukua Bay 1/1/2 hr, Kailua Kona 30 min, Kona airport, 25 min., Waimea 20 min., Hawi/ Waipio Valley 1 hour, Hilo/ Hawaiian TropicalBotanical Gardens 1 hr, Volcanoes Park, 1 1/2 hr.

    Puako is also a great choice for vacations, because it boasts the highest number of sunny days (and the lowest annual rainfall) in the entire state of Hawaii. In fact, frequently it may be raining on the nearby beaches south of us and as you drive back to Puako it is all sunny and clear!!...

    Our first time staying in Puako. Fantastic location right on the water in a quiet neighborhood. This is an authentic Hawaiian home perfect for 2 people or a family (children slept on L shaped sofa). Appreciate the beach chairs and cooler. Hope to stay again

    Loved every minute! Amazing location, views, tranquility!!! Saw tons of whales Rented paddle boards from Lat72 and they were delivered to the house. We enjoyed SUP entering the beach from 2 houses down. I could stay there forever Can’t wait to go back

    "Hale Malia" is our "Happy Place." We have visited many times. It is beautiful, cozy and the perfect spot for us. It is in a spectacular location, right on the water in laid-back Puako. We love to look for sea turtles and migrating whales, and the sunsets are spectacular! The property is beautifully maintained--the kitchen has recently been remodeled--and tastefully appointed. We always feel so relaxed and welcome there. We look forward to our next opportunity to visit.

    Everything was perfect except that the trade winds weren’t blowing and the house was extremely hot, which made for uncomfortable sleeping. At this price point, the house should have some sort of air conditioning unit.
