Exquisite Oceanfront Luxury Home on Puako Beach Drive Big Island Hawaii
This 4,500 square foot, grand elegant Puako oceanfront home is a rare find for its privacy, luxury and location. This first class estate home, with 115 feet of oceanfront, is unique to the area, since many oceanfront homes on Puako Beach Drive are old classic cottages. The town of Puako on the Kohala Coast is one of the top destinations in Hawaii for a true experience of paradise. Come discover your Aloha. Tranquility will greet you at the front gate, as you enter a private tropical yard, which is enclosed with a lava rock wall and lush, tropical landscaping. The gardens offer an abundance of Plumeria flowers, red torch ginger blossoms, fruit trees and coconut palms. Directly in front of the house discover some of the best snorkeling and diving conditions in the world. Sea turtles and tropical fish are a regular sight as you explore the underwater paradise. If you prefer to enjoy the turquoise, crystal clear waters from the surface, this home supplies you with stand up paddle boards and kayaks so you can become one with nature, while the others can watch from the lanai while listening to slack key guitar on the outdoor speakers. A few steps away is Paniau Beach for additional turtle watching, swimming and water sports. Glorious Oceanfront and Outdoor Living This prestigious, luxury home is designed to let the ocean environment envelope you while lounging on the enormous lanai. Enjoy the abundant sunshine and tranquil atmosphere of the blue Pacific ocean from the living, dining and kitchen areas as the home’s combined 96-feet of disappearing walls open up to the ocean vistas, gardens, and all lanais. Gaze at the Big Island’s famous volcanic mountaintops to the east and the island of Maui on the horizon. Next, ease into the blue pacific for fun and total relaxation. Enjoy the sight of Hawaii’s humpback whales or spinner dolphins playing along the Puako coastline, while you bask in the sun and sophisticated luxury. Whale watching in the winter is truly spectacular from this home’s vantage point. You will be mesmerized as they breech over and over again while the mothers teach their calves how to leap and dive. It’s better than a National Geographic documentary! The large, beautiful lawn surrounds the property to expand the barbecue crowd or provide plenty of room for outdoor games so the kids (or your inner kid) can romp and ...

Our group consisted of golfers, water enthusiasts and nature lovers. We were an active group seeking a beautiful home on the beach that offered conveniences for all our wishes. We loved our time at this property. We had studied this property extensively prior to booking. The home and surrounding area was just as expected. It is a lovely home with much charm situated along the coast of Puako, Hawaii.
Our group consisted of four couples. All the 4 bedrooms were comfortable with air conditioning. We slept well. The downstairs two bedrooms shared a closet space and a bathroom. To enhance our privacy, one couple use the half bath right across bedroom entrance and we were able to easily share the adjoining closet and shower. Each bedroom had a private lanai which was nice for privacy when desired. The kitchen was well appointed and very clean. The living spaces were very comfortable and tastefully decorated.
We spent most of our ‘at home’ time on the lanai’s or walking around on the lava to see turtles and aquatic life in the tide pools or in the ocean. The proximity of the home to the water is close. The beach beyond the home is primarily lava but there is water access nearby for snorkeling and other activities. The owners were very generous with their beach equipment, which made utilizing the ocean very convenient. The Orchid Fairmont is 15 minute walking distance on a trail along the beach. If you continue on you’ll reach the Mauna Lani resort and beach club. We were in Puako during whale season and enjoyed watching them all times of the day.
The home is in close proximity to many other amenities such as restaurants, grocery store, and other resorts and beaches.
The owners and local home manager were very attentive and helpful with our questions or requests. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family of seven, ages 23-81 and spanning three generations, had a wonderful stay at Mana Kai. What an incredible home!! It exceeded our expectations, and we would definitely stay here again.
The location is central to beautiful, white sand Hapuna beach, high end resorts and most activities, while remaining private and secluded. To our delight there were kayaks, snorkel gear, beach chairs, towels and more to use during our stay. We kayaked out on the ocean frontage of the house and watched as spinner dolphins frolicked within feet of us.
The kitchen was well stocked, and we used the heck out of the coffee maker. All the beds were comfy cozy and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was an absolute necessity, even in November!
We were all sad to have to leave this little piece of paradise. Thanks so much to Nikki and Christian for being excellent house hosts. And thank you to the family for sharing your home with 7 happy strangers. Mahalo!

The location for this home is perfect and we loved our vacation in large part due to the special accommodations at this property.
Our family of nine comprised of my husband and I, our four children (18, 15, 13, 11), my parents and my mother in-law fit comfortably in this incredible home which we used as a home base for our week stay on the Big Island. We snorkeled every morning (using the fins provided at the property in the garage - we brought our own dry snorkels and water shoes) and saw incredible fish, sea turtles, spinner dolphins, eels and other sea life. This property effectively includes a daily snorkeling trip for everyone by virtue of the proximity to one of the best reefs on the Big Island.
The Property Manager and owner were both incredibly helpful and connected us to various options for a chef to come into the house and cook an authentic island meal for our family. Check in was easy.
There were many other special amenities that show that the owners have thought through the details. For example,
the shell collection is incredibly unique and special (needs dusting) and the entire family spent a lot of time looking at the collection. We loved the ability to sleep with the doors open and have a breeze constantly flowing through the house, including watching a movie in the family room with the doors open. The sliding door set up throughout the house is elaborate so you can close doors with a glass door, screen or shutters. Note to owners, a few of the screen doors in the main living area are sticking a bit and the tracks may need a little love.
We loved this house and hope to visit again.
