"Nice, relatively secluded, location. Good swimming, snorkeling and views of the Humpback migration to Alaska.
Well equipped house and kitchen, and nicely furnished. Easy access to Puako General Store.
The road noise, especially early in the morning, is truly annoying."

"We spent a week with 3 adults and 2 teenage boys. The bungalow has a rustic but cool feel to it. The island has been experiencing high surf and has remodeled the beach. It is more rocky but its's easy access for kayaks and paddle boards. We planned on snorkeling but with the churned up waters we did a lot more kayaking and body boarding. There were many experienced surfers right out our door. We were thoroughly entertained. On calmer days we were able to kayak out far and get a close up of migrating whales and manta rays. Because of the close proximity of the ocean and rocky cliffs and high surf the noise was unbelievable at night, the bedroom windows on the ocean side do not have shutters to dull the noise. I do recommend considering this for future renters. The teen age boys had a trip of a life time. The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking. Leilani the property manager was very helpful and we rented kayaks and paddle boards from the company she suggested. They were very reliable and easy to contact. We plan to go back next year."

"Wonderful place to get away from it all and relax with family and friends in a lovely, comfortable, private, open-to-the-breezes house just steps away from a glorious golden-white-sand beach offering generous shady areas as well as sun, small waves, gentle slope and interesting coral reef snorkeling. The house is a great comfy beach house, with a well-stocked kitchen open to the living room and lanai overlooking the keawe trees and ocean, with convenient outdoor hot water shower for those sandy after-beach moments. We filled the place, and the studio in the trees was especially delightful! It was the absolute best place for our family gathering, and the wonderful women at 2 Papaya were great, making sure all went well with much aloha. We have rented with them before, we will again, they are the best!!!"

"This Puako updated and well furnished home was lovely for my husband our daughter and her boyfriend. Their bedroom was at opposite end of the house from ours. The house come with a well equipped kitchen as well as a generous supply of towels. Great ocean views with whales beyond and turtles and an eel just beyond the sea wall, wonderful lanai, comfy sofas, great TV, & outdoor shower. 2 Papayas met our every need. Only drawback: all doors are slatted for good airflow, but they do prevent privacy."
