Puako Oceanfront Escape - Whale watch all winter!
Located on the pristine and perennially sunny shores of Puako, a quaint oceanfront community on the Big Island's Kohala Coast, Hale I’a U’i (house of beautiful fish) is a newly completed 5,384 sq. ft. waterfront home which offers a truly private and luxurious experience.
The gourmet kitchen boasts all Miele appliances, granite countertops, and is complete with a built-in-convection oven, latter/espresso maker, range top, steam cooker, microwave, trash compactor and dishwasher. And if you'd rather watch someone else work his or her magic on your behalf, let us coordinate a private chef to prepare for you a culinary masterpiece.
Three of the four bedrooms are suites with king beds and private bathrooms featuring indoor/outdoor marble lined showers. The fourth bedroom, a perfect nest for the keiki (children), hosts two mahogany bunk beds and comfortable seating around a big screen HDTV. AC is featured in bedrooms (only available in bedrooms)
After a day of fun in the sun, relax in one of several recreational areas. The upstairs living room features a pool table, a wet bar, a large HDTV with surrounding seating and huge pocket doors that open to the exterior lanais that offer more epic ocean views. The air conditioned media room hosts a digital home theatre system with a wall size HD projector screen and DVD player.
The outdoor perks at Hale I’a U’i are boundless. Fit for outdoor lounging, there are two fabulous gazebos with daybeds on the lanai. The ocean front yard offers a shallow dipping pool for warm afternoons and a large hot tub for cool nights. With the water's edge right outside your door, snorkeling is as simple as making the decision to meander the 150 feet down to the shore. The waters around Puako are extremely clear and ideal for underwater visibility. Be sure to rinse off in the heated outdoor shower upon your return from your swim.
Located just a mile away, are two of Hawaii's top beaches—Hapuna Beach and Wailea Beach. Hapuna was voted best beach in Hawaii by Conde Nast and both beaches offer ideal conditions for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding and witnessing a variety of sea life from green turtles to pods of dolphins to breaching humpback whales (seasonally). And when the waves are up, Paniau—a nearby surf spot at the end of Puako Beach Drive—offers some true Hawaiian wave riding. The property is within five minutes of five star resorts, restaurants and shopping.
