Other things to note

Puako is conveniently located for enjoying all the resort hotels and restaurants on the Kohala Coast. The Mauna Kea, the Fairmont Orchid, the Mauna Lani and Hilton Hotels are just minutes away with their beaches, fine dining, shopping and world class golf courses. Kohala Divers and Ocean Sports is nearby at Kawaihae Center, and offers various ocean activities including scuba diving and sunset/afternoon sails. Kawaihae Center and Harbor are just 10 minutes by car, with several great restaurants and shops. You are close to almost any activity you may desire, with the exception of viewing the volcano which is a 3 hour drive.


Several fabulous beaches are minutes away. Hapuna Beach (voted best beach in Hawaii by Conde Nast Magazine) and Waialea Bay (Beach 69) both are wonderful for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding.

The sun shines 355 days per year and the average temperature highs are in the 80's with low's in the 60's. The ocean's edge is about 60 feet from your doorstep with crystal blue water that is 72-76 degrees year round.

Puako offers ideal fishing, snorkeling, diving, surfing and kayaking. Walking and biking is a favorite, too! Sea turtles, dolphins and whales are some of the sea life you may see. Puako offers beach style living and a real sense of getting away from it all.

Puako is rich in Hawaiian history. Walk south along the ocean trail to see the petroglyphs. There are approximately 3,000 petroglyphs scattered throughout the Puako Archaeological Fields. These pictures are etched into the lava rock that dominates the Kohala and Kona Coasts. Access to the Puako Petroglyph Park is through the adjacent Mauna Lani Resort.

The waters around Puako are extremely clear due to the fresh water run off and strong coastal currents. Divers and snorkelers can enjoy waters abundant in sea life along the shallow reef at Puako. The Puako Marine Preserve is a protected environment for endangered sea life. Green sea turtles are a protected species and should not be bothered, only enjoyed and admired. Watch the humpback whales play along the coast during the winter and spring months. Beyond Puako's reef shelf the whales play and breach during their migration to Hawaii from Alaska. It is quite a sight!

There are many, many great restaurants… All within a 5-10 mile radius. There are lots of ocean activities and fun things to do! The Big Island is jam packed with adventures! W40701520-01

MAINTENANCE ISSUES DURING YOUR STAY - Our vacation rentals are our owner’s personal homes and condos. They are generous enough to offer their private residences in paradise to travelers. Just as your home is not perfect, neither is theirs. There may be a maintenance issue that we are not aware of because we don’t live there, or something may break during your stay. We will do our best to correct the problem within 2 business days (1 business day if possible), because in Hawaii there are very limited services on the weekend. No refunds will be issued for maintenance issues unless there is a major problem and the owner agrees to it. Any refunds must be authorized by the owner, so there are no guarantees. Please know we repair everything the housekeepers and guests report to us on a consistent basis.

Unique find at the end of a dead end street, 3 steps away from adventurous lava beaches/ tide pools that we mostly had all to ourselves. Especially great when travelling with young children. The house and its location created a very authentic experience for us. One of the island's best sand beaches, Hapuna Beach, is also just a 5 minute drive away. The house itself is very light, well stocked and has all the amenities you wish you had (deck to sit on, bbq, outdoor showers, garden w beautiful trees). We loved it. Family of 6 with 1 baby, 1 toddler and grandparents.

Being able to experience real living in Puako neighbour at House of Happiness was fabulous and has left us with lifelong memories. It is over the lane from the beach and rock pools of Puako. We were able to enjoy morning walks and incredible evening sunsets - it was magical. The house is very very cute, and the kitchen was really well equipped with a great outside deck to bbq and relax in the evenings, with cosy outside lighting. An abundance of fluffy white towels and plenty of loo roll, plus all necessary washing products was great, as so many places don't supply them.

House was lovely and Deborah was easy to work with. There were some beach accessories which made it even better for the kids.

We loved our stay here. It felt like a little piece of paradise. The house is clean, well stocked with fresh linens and kitchenware and homely with a gorgeous garden and deck to eat. Location wise it's perfect. The best beach on the island Hapuna is just up the road -(just as you imagine paradise) you could not be closer, and there is a rocky beach across the road to browse the rock pools, take a dip and watch the sunset. The Neighbourhood is quiet, safe and friendly with a general store that has most of what you need. Having driven round a lot of the Big Island and having stayed at Muana Lani I can say hands down this was the best place to stay. I did not want to leave.

Debbie and her team were awesome! We were warmly welcomed and found the house and neighborhood simply lovely. The house is right across the street from beautiful lava beaches and tide pools, which made for some inspiring morning walks and sunset viewings. The house had everything we needed, and Debbie was easy to get a hold of with a check-in question. We loved our stay, and would definitely re-book the House of Happiness for our next stay in Puako.
