Puako Real Estate


When yours is a shoreline home in Puako, you enjoy the most famous sunsets in the entire world right in your own back yard. Unobstructed oceanfront homes are actually limited in Hawaii as all beaches are legally public access property, yet in a few communities like Puako, the layout of traditional style private homes along a single residential road tend to naturally limit visitors to few. This leaves homeowners with their own corner of paradise and classic Hawaiian beauty to enjoy day after day.

If you’re expecting a typical gated single family and condo community, Puako differentiates itself from the average beachfront community. The real estate here consists of full size properties and elegant one of a kind homes.


Puako is the only non-resort coastal community on the west coast of the Big Island, home to just a general store. But, the great thing about Puako is that those tourist resorts are just a short drive away when you need shopping, dining, and other facilities, and Kona International Airport is about a half hour drive.


The 160 lots and homes of Puako homes are a favorite of affluent and locals alike who care about their privacy and a stunning authentic Hawaiian experience at home all year round. Some of the homes are authentic original Hawaiian homes. On some properties, you may find small original houses preserved, closer to the main road, while the newer, larger house is closer to the ocean. Demand is really strong for these homes and you’ll naturally find the higher prices on the oceanfront side of the main road.


Puako is an idyllic location with highly individual homes and a laid back style where residents enjoy some of the best scuba diving, snorkeling and even sea turtles and humpback whales in close proximity. Homeowners will find nearby within walking distance, small bays, inlets and varied beaches in a natural state from lava flows to golden sand beaches to explore and enjoy besides the beach in your own back yard.


When you choose an agent to represent your interests in a home purchase in Puako, you’ll want a well acquainted specialist in the Big Island’s ocean front and beach access properties. Prices and values vary by several factors and you can be sure that as a long time local real estate agent, I will understand these variables and ensure that every dollar you invest into a Big Island Hawaiian home returns the absolute maximum in real estate value and enjoyment.
