Puako is situated between the luxury 4- and 5-star resorts on the Gold Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii: the newer Mauna Lani Auberge Resort, the Fairmont Orchid, the famed Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, and the Westin Hapuna Resort. Puako is an oceanfront residential community where you will enjoy the same or better weather given this more northern location, lower density, and easy ocean access without the restrictions and high cost of a Homeowner Association. The zoning of V-1.25 (Resort-Hotel) allows for short term vacation rentals with County of Hawaii approval. Puako still remains today a very small and private beach enclave. The vision for this new home currently under construction is for a modern, contemporary beach house of clean lines and the highest quality construction and finishes floor to ceiling; modern luxury and Old Hawaii combined on one of the most formidable wide and deep white sand beaches in Puako. This is Puako at its finest in 2021-22 for the discerning Buyer; new construction is rare and from start to finish can easily take 2 to 4 years. Estimated completion is 90-120 days +/- subject to Covid restrictions and limited county inspection availability. Views are of Maui, the Kohala mountains and Mauna Kea. Approx. 3,115 sqft. of living space, 3/3.5, huge oceanfront lanai of 1100+ sqft., a 2-car garage for an approx. total of 4,791 under roof w/2 oceanfront primary suites. SMA has been received for a future 2nd garage of 616 sqft. w/a 1-bedroom, 1-bath above of 576 sqft.
