This elegant and timeless oceanfront estate is situated on the scenic shores of beautiful Puako Bay. One of Hawaii's last remaining peaceful little beach communities, Puako is steeped in history from abundant fishing to sugar cane farming and epic soul-surfing. This charming and serene enclave is a perfect place to create your own extraordinary memories.

Puako 74 is an exceptional property, comprising of a magnificent main house with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as an attached one bedroom "ohana'' guest suite, ideal for a family with a new baby, grandparents, a quiet, creative and comfortable work space, or a couple seeking a romantic retreat. This stunning estate boasts classic vintage style with gorgeous hardwood floors, high ceilings and ocean views from every room. Combined with all the modern comforts and conveniences such as highspeed Wifi network, flat screen TVs and air-conditioning in every room, Sonos sound systems, and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, every guest can enjoy the best of both worlds! A sweeping, wrap-around lanai and expansive lawn shaded by a majestic, decades-old banyan tree offers guests just as much enjoyment outdoors as indoors.

Enter the main house through wide double doors that open into a sumptuous foyer and great room, consisting of a lavish living room, grand dining area and comprehensive gourmet kitchen. An open floor-plan allows family and friends to hang out together while cooking, savoring a beverage at the long granite bar, dining at the grand wooden table or relaxing on the two large and luxurious sofas. The bright and spacious primary bedroom, situated at the end of the long window-lined hallway provides privacy with a king-size bed and ensuite bath, featuring a luxurious soaking tub, separate tiled shower and double sink vanity. Sliding glass doors from the primary bedroom open onto the lanai just steps away from the ocean. A spacious walk-in closet provides plush bathrobes and all the space you'll need for your vacation attire.

The three bedrooms in the main house all offer ocean views, each with flat screen smart TVs, ceiling fans and independent air-conditioning controls. Bedroom 2 is a Jr. Primary Suite, with a king-size bed, ensuite bath with double sinks, glass shower and double pocket doors that open onto the ocean-viewing hallway. Bedroom 3 is ideal for the kids or friends, with two twin beds, ensuite bath, and double pocket doors to the hallway and sliding doors to the lanai. A laundry room off the hallway provides the space and convenience you need with a washer and dryer, folding area, laundry sink and in-wall ironing board.

The upstairs "ohana" guest suite is connected to the house with an interior staircase as well as a private entrance from an outdoor stairway. This self-contained, charming suite has everything you need and offers a peaceful haven with its own shady lanai overlooking the lush garden and sparkling ocean. Each room in the ohana is equipped with flat screen smart TVs, independent split air-conditioning controls and ceiling fans. It also includes a separate bedroom with a queen-size bed, an ensuite bathroom with a roomy tiled shower, full kitchen with gas range, breakfast bar and a washer and dryer. Open the sliding glass doors to the lanai and enjoy the fresh ocean air gliding through the rooms! The lanai is nestled under the eves of the mighty banyan tree and is furnished with an inviting daybed, bistro set and comfy lounge chairs. Take pleasure in enjoying an afternoon nap while listening to the sounds of the birds in the trees and ocean waves lapping at the shore.

Whale-watching season (November to March) brings the majestic Humpback whales who migrate here to birth their babies in the warm Hawaiian waters. The inviting shelter of Puako Bay makes it one of their favorite locales. Watch in amazement from your private lanai as these magnificent mammals breach out of the water right in front of your eyes! You can also enjoy these dazzling blue waters year-round with plenty of snorkeling, swimming, and sunbathing right outside your back door!

Situated about 30 miles north of Kailua-Kona, Puako is a dearly loved oceanfront community comprising of year-round residents, returning "snowbirds", and a diverse variety of vacation rentals. A two-mile two-lane road that ends at a private estate and public beach where surfers seek epic waves, fishermen find their catch, and people simply enjoy the peace and beauty, Puako is a unique locale in the Hawaiian Islands. The nearby Puako General Store provides a convenient stop for various goods and sundries, ready-made food and local souvenirs.

My family and I absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful house on the water, in a quiet neighborhood away from the resorts, during spring break. There were lots of people on the island during this time, which made getting back to the house after full days of adventure feel like a welcome respite. It was our kind of paradise!

Three generations family vacation. The house, amenities and setting were just great. The pictures really didn’t do it justice. Would love to return someday.

We decided to celebrated my wife's birthday with our three adult kids and significant others on the Big Island. Our daughter lives in Japan so COVID has kept our family apart for most of the past 2 years, making this trip an important reunion as well as birthday celebration. This house was the perfect place to celebrate! The house is absolutely immaculate. Every feature and fixture is first class. The host has discretely labeled all the cabinets and drawers so you know where everything is and where it belongs when you are done with it. A small touch that reflects the care and thoughtfulness that went into every feature of the house. We originally intended to eat out a lot, because innumerable restaurants are within a 10 minute drive. Instead, we fell in love with the big square table on the lanai. We took turns cooking and spent almost every evening gathered around that table, enjoying each other's company and the amazing views. We planned on visiting the local beaches on most days (two beautiful ones are within a 5 minute drive) but by far the best snorkeling we did was on the reef just offshore of the house. There is a reason dive boats and snorkel boats congregate offshore. We also feel in love with the resident sea turtles, who inevitably joined us on every swim. The only cautionary note is to make sure you enter the water about 10 yards down the beach on the right from the house. That allows you to miss some rocks and sea urchins (we learned that after our first swim). We can't imagine a better placer to stay and we can't wait to return to the Big Island and this absolutely perfect home.

Home is magnificent! All accommodations were amazing! Hosts were so thoughtful and helpful. Perfect location to get to everything!

My family really enjoyed our time here. Now we are spoiled and can never stay anywhere but a house on the beach. My kids loved running down to the beach every morning to see the sea turtles which made their appearance every single day of our trip. The house itself was as described and had everything we needed to enjoy our trip. Only wished it had a pool and larger tvs but this would not deter us from returning.

Incredibly well-appointed home, has everything you need. Sparkling clean, great layout, gorgeous setting. Amazing snorkeling directly off the beach. but only for the experienced as you need to understand tides and how to navigate urchins!
