  • Amazing Location/People and Best Coral Reef!

    "I stayed here with a friend for almost a week, and at first was not sure where it was that we were driving to in the dark. When we arrived, the air was rich with the scent of flowers, and we opened the door to a week of bliss. Be warned - this is not in the middle of tourist central, and there are no major grocery stores nearby. Instead, there is a small general store that pipes in the hydrophoned calls of whales from the offshore harbour. There is the shallow reef, home to the resident turtles just across the street. And Bud - the penultimate host, and his pooch Sancho. We were sorry to have missed Peg, but I am sure we will go back to stay with them again. The suite is small, but good. There is an outdoor shower that really makes the night time snorkelling amazing :) All in all this place is one that I will remember for a long time to come!"

  • Wow. What a great experience.

    "My family of fives (kids of 14, 13, 9) visited Hale Puako at the end of July. We had an excellent experience. The access to the different beaches--by foot and by car--was fantastic. The house was exactly as pictured, well maybe better. It doesn't get five starts because it is a "5 Star Resort" it gets five stars because of the excellent "as advertised" experience and the great service of the Two Papayas management. When we come back to the Big Island, we will certainly use Two Papayas again."

  • Three generation family vacation -

    "This was a perfect house in a gorgeous water front location for a family of eight. A week of fun... sunset views each evening, snorkeling daily. The kitchen is very well equipped and conducive to excellent meal preparation. Good amenities in lovely house."

  • Puako Time!

    "Our annual visit to the Big Island was even better this year thanks to our stay at this vintage beach front home. Nothing fancy, just everything you need to have a great time. Morning coffee and afternoon Mai Tai's in lounge chairs, peacefully watching the tide spray the lava flow that extends from the beach. Just a few minutes away from multiple beaches and 10 minutes from the dive shop - Kohala Divers (our favorite). The owners of the home are very kind, helpful and giving. They live on the property as well, but you'd never know it - they give you your space. It's a great place to party! We can't wait to go back!!"
