A short drive from the Kona International Airport is the easy going beachside community of Puako. Having served as a retreat for the wealthy in years past, today the area combines an eclectic mix of oceanfront housing and properties with spectacular waterfront views, and small town charm.
Residents in Puako are also free from the restrictions of resort communities, while still being close enough to enjoy their fabulous amenities and services. If you're looking for one of the last refuges from resort living, real estate in Puako is a peaceful sanctuary while still being close to life's little luxuries.
A single winding road travels along the rugged shoreline with houses lining either side. Housing in Puako is as varied as its residents.
