Discover Paradise: A Gem on the Kohala Coast - 48 Puako

Updated: Feb 27

As the sun dips below the horizon, casting a golden glow over the tranquil waters of Wailea Bay, you can't help but feel the magic of Puako. Nestled along the ruggedly beautiful Kohala Coast of the Big Island, Puako is a place where time seems to stand still and nature's beauty takes center stage. And at the heart of this charming coastal community lies a rare gem - 48 Puako, an oceanfront home that embodies the essence of island living at its finest.

As a seasoned realtor with deep roots in Puako, I have had the pleasure of witnessing the allure of this neighborhood firsthand. For many years, I have called Puako home, living and breathing its laid-back lifestyle and helping others discover the magic of this hidden paradise. It is no wonder why other realtors affectionately refer to me as "The Queen of Puako" - my passion for this community knows no bounds.

Puako is a place unlike any other on the Big Island. While neighboring resorts boast luxury amenities and bustling tourist activity, Puako remains a charming, quiet yet vibrant, and friendly enclave tucked away from the crowds. What sets Puako apart is its distinct lack of homeowners association (HOA) fees and resort regulations, allowing residents the freedom to live life on their terms. Here, you'll find a tight-knit community of locals and like-minded individuals who cherish the simple pleasures of island living.

And then there's the ocean - a constant source of wonder and inspiration for those lucky enough to call Puako home. 48 Puako epitomizes waterfront living, offering unparalleled views of Wailea Bay, the majestic Kohala Mountains, and even the distant shores of Maui on clear days. From the comfort of your own backyard, you can witness the breathtaking spectacle of humpback whales breaching and dolphins playing in the surf during whale season. With some of the best snorkeling and kayaking spots along the Kohala Coast right at your doorstep, every day is an adventure waiting to unfold. Puako truly is the ocean lover's paradise!

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail by Metzler Contracting, this pole house stands as a testament to quality construction. Over the past 33 years, the owners have lovingly cared for and maintained this home, ensuring it remains a sanctuary of comfort and tranquility. Set above the required flood elevation, 48 Puako exudes a sense of security and serenity akin to sailing on a luxurious yacht through the crystal-clear waters of Wailea Bay.

Step inside, and you'll find a residence that seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living, inviting you to experience the essence of island life. The main floor boasts two spacious bedrooms and two baths, each thoughtfully designed to maximize comfort and convenience. A cozy office/den area provides the perfect space for work or relaxation. At the same time, a loft bedroom on the second floor offers unparalleled privacy and panoramic views from its own private deck.

Imagine the endless possibilities that await at 48 Puako. With its prime oceanfront location and solid foundation, this property is a blank canvas waiting for your personal touch. Transform it into your own private oasis by adding a spacious downstairs lanai, complete with an outdoor kitchen and dining area, where you can entertain friends and family while taking in the stunning ocean views and famous Puako sunsets.
