Tucked in between Mauna Lani and Mauna Kea Resorts you’ll find the oceanfront enclaves of Waialea and Puako along the Kohala coastline.
Homebuyers who want to live along Hawaii Island’s fabled Kohala Coast without living in a resort seek out Puako. First developed as a beach vacation community, Puako is about three miles in length and has just one road that hugs the coastline with roughly 160 homes on either side. There’s one condo complex in Puako with the remaining properties running the gamut from summer beach shacks to multi-million dollar oceanfront estates. Property owners become members of the Puako Homeowners Association, which meets monthly.
Life in Puako is relaxing and laid back. See Hawaiian sea turtles basking in the sun as you take a walk along the shoreline, stroll to the Puako general store for beach supplies and the latest local news, or explore the dynamic reef ecosystems of Puako’s offshore reef.
Just north of Puako, in Waialea, is a popular white sand beach, complete with outdoor showers and restroom facilities. Waialea itself is comprised of only a handful of private oceanfront estates. Homes here, like in Puako, can be used as vacation rentals, helping to offset your investment costs.
When you live in Puako or Waialea, you’re only a short drive from the fine dining, golfing, and shopping offered in nearby resorts, as well as Waimea and Kawaihae.
Whether you’re looking for a new home in Hawaii or a vacation property, the experts at Hawaii Beach and Golf Properties can help you find the right Puako home for your lifestyle and budget.
