The unique setting of this amazing Puako property offers a variety of views from each of the six oceanfront lots. The two elevated , off-ocean lots offer stunning ocean, sunset and mountain views of Mauna Kea.  All within a quiet gated community located away from the crowded resorts.

Mauna Kea Resort open again.

f2-007.jpgWhen Mauna Kea Beach Hotel is opening again. The hotel first opened in July of 1965, Mr. Laurance S. Rockefeller surprised the travel industry in many ways.  Not only did he contstruct a luxurious retreat for privileged few on an all-but-unheard of tropical island, he paid more for it than any other hotel ever built (15 million). The architectural firm Skidmore Owings Merrill juxtaposed elements of modern, geometrical western design with the understated “shibumi” (essential) elements of the East.

The golf designer , Robert Trent Jones, Sr. created a course by crushing the barren lava  rock into soil, and decorators Davis Allen and Phyllis Brownlee filled the guestrooms, dining rooms and public spaces with the finest furnishings and appointments money could buy. Remarkably, this included over 1,600 pieces of authentic Pacific and Asian artworks and artifacts.   By Catherine Bridges Tarleton– from the self guided tour.

 Mauna Kea Resort is only a 5 minute drive from Puako. Glad to have our neighbors back.

How do we prevent WNV?

The West Nile Virus? How can we prevent it?

Eliminate Standing Water. Of course Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, with all the winter rains we are experiencing we should start to look around to make sure we are not creating places for them to regenerate.

1. Remove anything that collects rainwater, such as cans, bottles, buckets, used tires, flowerpots, abandoned cars and boats.

2. Clean clogged roof gutters.

3. Cover garbage cans, uncapped hollow tile walls and fence pipes.

4. Empty and clean watering containers for pets and livestock at least once a week.

5. Check your screen doors and windows for rips and tears..and fix them.

6. Clean out flower vases and replace the water.

7. Spray mosquitoes with aerosol insecticides labeled for flying insects.
