About John Kohler
We are a family partnership. We bought 3 acres of undeveloped land and built our vacation home, where we hope to eventually retire.
John Kohler purchased this House in 2006
Why John Kohler chose Milolii
We built in Papa Bay because it's secluded and we love the ocean views, the sunsets and the peaceful surroundings. We love the Big Island for its varied climate zones and lack of the crowds of Honolulu.
What makes this House unique
A great getaway from the stress and bustle of life, and standard crowded vacation spots. Very peaceful, surrounded by nature, with wonderful sunsets. We love to decompress here and recharge our energy.

Tropical paradise, rugged, peaceful, tranquil, spacious and comfortable.
This house is strategically located to explore both southern and eastern parts of the island; it is close to hidden gems which include secluded beaches. The house is quite spacious for our family of five adults, and well equipped for entertaining. It was clean and well stocked with linens and towels, and yes, it is true that the frogs and birds are loud with song! We loved it! Water pressure is minimal which made showering more challenging, but not a deal breaker, only a minor inconvenience. Caution should be taken when entering the driveway for low clearance vehicles.
Everything met or exceeded our expectations as described in the ad. You can tell that this home is loved and cared for by its owner. We hope to return.
Peaceful home withh lots of room
Home was large and well stocked. Loved waking up in the morning , drinking my coffee, and watching the wild chickens and two juvenile wild pigs in the yard. We had a little mix up upon arrival, but John, the owner , took care of it and was easy to deal with . Great place for families with kids.
Quiet except for the birds and coque frogs. Lots of wildlife right in the yard to watch and enjoy. Nice big home. Very comfortable for a long stay. We were there 3 months for the third time.
Truly our home away from home!
Our extended family of 8 had a great time in the Papa Bay house. The property was everything it was advertised to be: well maintained, lots of space, and a well-stocked kitchen and linen cupboard (which was particularly important to us given we were planning to do a significant amount of cooking and had water activities planned for most days that we were on the Big Island). We especially liked the location - sort of halfway between Kona and Hilo - because it allowed us to get to attractions/activities on both coasts without long driving times. The laundry room was big and the washer/dryer were huge, allowing us to clean and dry our wet suits, swim gear, beach towels, etc. quickly and efficiently. John made the booking process very easy and was readily available to answer questions both before and during our stay. The place was secluded and quiet (which is what we wanted), but we did have to keep our windows closed at night to avoid being disturbed by the local roosters and turkeys.
Overall, it was a great experience and we would highly recommend this Papa Bay home, especially for larger groups and families.
This is the home for you!
With an entire month ahead of us to spend on the Big Island, we were hoping the rental home would work for our needs. The home has EVERYTHING you need to enjoy your vacation! As soon as you arrive you feel the welcome from the owners in the great care they take of the whole place.
We cooked most of our meals in the well-stocked kitchen. With a full sized refrigerator, large cooktop/oven combo, microwave, toaster oven, etc., as well as all the utensils, plates, pans and everything else, all we needed to add was the food!
The large living room was well-used by our grandchildren and the big dining room table was occupied for every meal as well as being used for maps and other items for day-trip planning. Perfect!
Lots of bedroom space and plenty of bathrooms for everyone too. Super comfortable beds and large closets for storing everything.
We were pleasantly surprised to find the home had miscellaneous beach toys and boogie boards available for us to use. Very nice! We purchased beach towels at the Kona Costco and we were ready for any beach adventures.
Since we had recently purchased land on the big island and we needed to do quite a bit of work on it, the rental home was our place for eating breakfast, packing lunches and then off we went to the land. At the end of the day, it was the place to come home to. Awesome.
The beautiful plants and always interesting wildlife (turkeys) were a bonus. The wireless internet was very important to us and we were able to take care of everything we needed to do without any hitches.
We can't wait to go back and stay at this home again!
The perfect home for us
We spent 12 nights in this super home and were sad when we had to leave. The house has everything you need and more! You'll feel like you're the only one around and you don't see any other houses when you are on the property. Views are great with ocean view en lots of birds around the house.
The house is very functional has everything you will need from comfortable beds to a fully stocked kitchen. Wireless internet works fine and there is satelite TV although we only used it to watch the local news once or twice.
It is a bit of a drive from the airport and the road is narrow and winding but we loved the drive. And it is an easy drive to Hilo and Volcano NP. If you want to be close to restaurants and nightlife this is not the place for you but if you want a peaceful, quiet and secluded place you can't find a better place to stay. We enjoyed it very much and hope to be able to come back some day.
