Plumeria Cottage is a charming early-era-Puako beach bungalow--set amid mature palms, Milo tree, spectacular spreading Royal Poinciana and, of course, plumerias. Newly remodeled yet preserving many original details, you’ll enjoy a special vacation steeped in the continuity of this enduring community. Walk across the one-lane road for beach access or visit nearby Waialea Bay and Hapuna Beach for spectacular swimming, snorkeling, sunning or wintertime whale watching. Stop at the quaint Puako General Store for an ice-cream treat or cold drink, or visit nearby resorts for shopping, dining and Hawaiian-style events. This appealing one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage is ideal for a couple, perhaps with a young child. THERE IS ANOTHER HOME ON THE PROPERTY.
Plumeria Cottage offers a vacation of ease indoors and out. Compact yet perfectly proportioned in the vintage beach style, it is a delightful combination of convenience and charm. And, with a roomy, sunny lanai and large shaded grassy yard, it becomes quite spacious. An outdoor-shower room with laundry and plenty of room for beach items and for drying wet towels and bathing suits keeps the indoors comfortable and relaxed.
Enter beside large plumerias into the living space, hang your keys just next to the door, step down to the kitchen on your right to put your market purchases away, or to the dining area followed by the sitting room. The bedroom, also a step down, is just beyond the kitchen and off the main living area. A sliding shoji-screen “window” provides cross ventilation as well as privacy. Window AC unit provides extra cool air on still days. Across the front of the cottage is a roomy deck and around the corner is the large outdoor shower room, so there’s no need to track sand and dripping water into your living space. Built-in shelves hold linens and both bath towels and beach towels.
Vertical bead-board paneling, clerestory windows for ventilation and horizontal sliding windows set the vintage tone. Lauhala mats and rattan floor coverings enhance the original pine floorboards plus new bamboo flooring in the kitchen and bedroom. Décor includes new microfiber sofa, reupholstered vintage rattan dining table and chairs. Local art echoes the simplicity and sweetness of the cottage.
The kitchen is updated with new cabinets, granite-tile counters, microwave and refrigerator yet maintains the original painted-brick wall, inset corner shelves, jalousie windows and vintage-look Hotpoint stove and oven. The new sink plus coffee maker and grinder, toaster, linens, dishes, flatware, cooking pots and utensils all meet modern expectations.
The bathroom with roomy shower stall (and jalousie windows for ventilation and privacy) has painted-wood detailing, old-style wooden medicine cabinet and additional sliding window for that added touch of light and greenery.

What did you like best about the house? comfy, quiet, great bed and bedding, nice thick towels, great location. We LOVE this place.... we will be back
This was our second holiday stay in this charming little cottage in restful Puako. Two Papayas Rentals had our pre-ordered groceries all loaded into the refrigerator and we were set for the Christmas holidays. This is the perfect, quiet, little Hawaiian hideaway. The decor is so tasteful and I love all the extras that come with a home rental, such as the washer, dryer and a kitchen loaded with all the basics for cooking.
The folks at 2Papayas set our cottage up with everything we could possibly need during our stay. We have a love affair with Puako and it was wonderful to return, especially to be at the end of the street, a walk away from snorkeling and all the water action as well as a nightly convergence of sea turtles!
We loved our stay at the cottage. It was comfortable, clean, peaceful, and a great location. The cottage was well set up and we felt like we had everything we needed in a very cozy and nicely decorated place. I am looking forward to coming back.
I've stayed in a number of places in Puako and this one fit my needs perfectly. Nicely remodeled, very comfortable, great location (next Paniau at the end of the street) and 2Papayas did a very good job in making me feel at home. Am sure I'll go back.
My husband and I loved this cottage which was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves for our precious six days. The location is beautiful and there are wonderful beaches and hikes close by. You will have to drive a couple of hours to the Volcano National Park and some other tourist destinations but the location has much to offer and we enjoyed our experience thanks to the people connected to the cottage who helped us plan our days.
This was our 1st trip to the Big Island and couldn't have chosen a better spot. The cottage is the perfect size for 2 people and had everything needed. We loved having the beach chairs etc. for the beach trips and couldn't think of anything we would have added to the kitchen utensils or supplies. The decor of the cottage was apprioate for its location and loved the linen sheets. The biggest plus besides the what was already mentioned above was the friendly neiborhood, away from the big resorts but close enough to go for dinner if you wanted. 2 Papayas level of service was great and we loved finding the 2 papayas in the frig to enjoy later. It was a wonderful 2 weeks
The small neighborhood of Puako is conveniently located near shopping, dining, golf, and numerous beaches, including the shorelines right in the area. Puako Beaches are not long stretches of white sand, but a combination of lava, coral and sandy with tidal pools teaming with sealife. Tide pools are great for kids to explore.
