Secluded oceanfront villa near a petroglyph field

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Get in on one of Hawaii’s best-kept secrets at Waimalani. This oceanfront Big Island vacation rental is set in Puako, a small town that’s often overlooked in favor of Mauna Kea or Mauna Lani resorts. But visitors who stay a while will discover an enchanting private getaway that pairs traditional island charm with modern luxury.
Settle into an aloha state of mind with the help of the villa’s lush garden, tranquil fishpond and a shaded lanai with al-fresco sitting and dining areas and a barbecue. Listen to the waves while lounging, or walk down to the beach for a stroll along the property’s 350 feet of shoreline. At night, flip on the cable TV inside or catch up with friends and family at home via Wi-Fi.
Waimalani is laid out in two pods: a main house with a great room and two bedrooms, and a guest house with two more rooms, a wet bar and laundry. The open-concept living area, dining area and fully equipped kitchen in the main house embody classic island style, with vaulted ceilings, dark-wood accents and ocean views through slide-away glass walls.
The villa has one bedroom with a king bed, one with a queen bed, one with a double bed and one with two twin sofa beds. All four have en-suite bathrooms and ocean views. While the master suite is in the main house, the guest house is ideal for couples seeking honeymoon-style privacy while on holiday.
Not only is the town of Puako known for its clear waters and great snorkeling, it’s also home to a petroglyph field where you can see more than 3,000 works carved into rock. A stay at Waimalani also puts you close to the best of the rest of the Kohala Coast, from white-sand Hapuna Beach to the tempting Shops at Mauna Lani.
