Treehouse Vacation Home

The property was chosen by the family matriarch in the early 1950s for its location along some of the best tidal pools in Puako, where children can swim, fish and play, protected by a perimeter of ancient lava flows. The adjacent “Big Rock” rises above the pools, setting the stage for social gatherings and sunset watching. Turtles come to call daily, feeding on the seaweed at the Big Rock’s edge. In the winter, humpback whales pass by, 100-plus yards offshore, cavorting with their young. With the constant sea breezes, the rustling coconut palms and waves provide a natural rhythm of music to this idyllic setting.

House Design

With its high natural wood ceilings and charming bedroom and living room configuration, the Treehouse accommodates two persons comfortably. An exterior staircase ascends to a comfortable lanai with a sitting area and ocean views, the perfect spot for morning Kona coffee and fresh papaya as well as afternoon cocktails.

Inside, numerous windows and a sliding glass entry door look out through the banyan tree and over the tropical landscape and coconut palms to the nearby tide pools, sparkling ocean and sunset horizon. Split bamboo blinds provide privacy when needed, and the windows open on all four sides of the cottage, allowing a constant flow of air, accentuated by the ceiling fan when desired. The furnishings are done in colors reflecting the beautiful surroundings, and tropically-inspired artwork provides an additional sense of place to this cozy nest by the sea. Amenities include a full kitchen, bath with shower, TV, and high-speed wireless Internet access.

Direct access to the beach is just steps away via the public shoreline path adjacent to the property.

Located above the property’s two-car garage, the Treehouse is easy to combine with the main house at Beach Banyan, making this a great destination for extended families.
