Serene Oceanfront Estate
Stately and serene, THE HOME OF THE HULA MOON is one of the most beautiful contemporary oceanfront properties in PUAKO. Each bedroom has a perfect ocean view. Located near the end of the road, you will enjoy year-round sunsets and privacy.
Puako has the best beach weather on the Big Island. Stunning sunsets, views of Maui, and an infinity lawn to the ocean. There is lots of room for a large family and friends at this 5000/7000 sq. foot home on the beach.
We do not have Air Conditioning, but the large ceiling fans, and ocean breezes keep it pleasant.
We don't allow weddings, events, receptions or any type of workshops at our home so please don't ask to be the exception to this rule, because we just won't rent to you.
The home has a large infinity lawn and there is no barrier between the house and the ocean, therefore, please note the layout of the property and the people in your group, prior to booking this vacation rental.
Please be advised that 1/1/2022, the Hawaii island TAT taxes are going up by 3% on all hotel and vacation rentals. If you booked in 2021, and/or if VRBO has not updated the tax rate when you book, please understand that the additional 3% will be added to your reservation. VRBO is not in compliance until they update and collect the correct tax amount.
All vacation rentals must have a STVR permit from the County of Hawaii in order to be a rental. We were among the first to receive ours, so we are in full compliance. STVR-19-349600, NUCR-21-0441.
Please see my generic "for reference only" contract attached under rates for details. You will need to sign a waiver and a case specific contract in order to confirm your booking at Hula Moon.
Back to the fun stuff.
As you enter through the gates, lush tropical plantings enhance the large courtyard swimming pool and generous lanai. The pool is usually between 78 and 88 degrees depending on the season. The pool is less than 4 feet deep. Children who are not 100% potty trained must wear swim diapers in the pool. Consider the next guests as well as yourself.
Hula Moon is designed so that every room has a magnificent view of the ocean, you will love the open and airy feeling of this large and large contemporary home.
HULA MOON was designed for gracious living in a relaxed atmosphere. Including the covered lanais, you have almost 7000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space. The two-story Great Room is very inviting with wonderful views of the ocean. The beautiful oceanside lanai has a dining table for 8 to 10. The lanai also has large chairs for relaxing and a punee for lounging. There is a built-in wet bar. We have a small sandy beach just to the left of our home, which great for playing with the kids. People often snorkel in the tide pools in front of the house at high tide.
Enjoy watching the humpback whales in season, spinner dolphins and green sea turtles from the house. The Puako reef offers some of the best snorkeling and walk-in scuba diving on the Big Island.
We have four large bedrooms with maximum privacy. The Kona and Kohala suites are on the main floor and both have stunning ocean views and doors that open onto the lanai. Each suite has been beautifully appointed with King mattresses and new linens. Both have large bathrooms with a separate dressing area and a large enclosed shower filled with tropical plants.
The two spacious upstairs bedrooms have expansive ocean views and a private lanai that runs the length of the house. The Aloha suite has a new King bed and a new punee (Hawaiian day bed) for relaxing. The Turtle suite has new Twin beds (that can be made into a KING Bed) and a daybed . The Turtle suite is a great room choice for the kids, or for parents who want to sleep with their child. Of course, it is also perfect for for friends to share. Both upstairs bedrooms have private bathrooms with large walk-in showers.
Each bedroom has a TV/DVD player, There are 5 televisions with many premium cable channels throughout the house. We still have a few VCR players and we have have a large selection of DVD movies in the Living room cabinets.
There are ceiling fans, portable fans and louvered windows in every room. There is No AIR CONDITIONING but if you leave the louvers open it remains cool and comfortable. Every bed has a blanket plus a quilt or comforter which guests often need at night.
If you have business to attend to, we have several work stations. We have good wifi coverage on the property and it's the best that Spectrum has to offer. The internet is great for streaming and most work but it’s not meant for realtime gaming or other low-latency tasks.
The upstairs double office has a printer that you are welcome to use. There is paper and spare ink in the drawer. There is also another punee (Hawaiian lounging bed) for relaxing. This can sleep an adult or child if someone needs to sleep separately but let us know well in advance if this is anticipated.
I am sorry to even have to remind you of this, but please note, you may NOT take the mattresses off the beds and move them into different parts of the home. If you need to put mattresses on the floor then you have too many people in my house. We will charge you between $200 and $600 if you move any furniture or mattresses around the home. This will come out of your security deposit.
Extra housekeeping, in-home massage, kayak rentals, catering and more can be arranged locally so please ask our concierge. We will do our best to give you some options so that you can make the arrangements for your perfect Puako experience!
