About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Treadwell House was built with endless childhood summers in mind, keeping the simple and joyful spirit of a beach house while meeting a more modern standard. This delightful home will appeal to those who also had the luck to experience such childhood summers…or simply wish they had!

The owners of this home are four of the grandchildren of R.T and Gerry Treadwell, who first purchased the property in the 1930’s when R.T was the doctor in Kohala. One is an architect, who designed it to “alight gently on the land,” distilling details to keep the uncluttered, pared-down lifestyle recalled from those childhood summers. Elegant in its simplicity and consistent style, the home is raised on concrete pilings with a butterfly roof, which collects and channels rainwater, an old custom in this arid climate. Designed to capture the trade-wind breezes and give its inhabitants both communal space and privacy, the home is open, airy and thoroughly “old Hawaii.”

About Mary A. Fox R (B) Active

Aloha, I am Mary Fox, R (B) and owner of 2 Papayas, LLC. I manage this wonderful Puako home on behalf of the Owners. I would love to help you and your family find the perfect home for your stay on the Big Island. I am a Puako resident, myself, so I am available to greet you upon arrival, answer any questions you may have, or attend to any concerns or requests that may arise during your stay. Until we meet in Paradise...

What makes this house unique

This is a very open-to-the-outdoors-house. The big doors on the great room open to the outside and have no screens. Outdoor types love this home due to its openness.

This is also a great home for families or large groups because the nightly rate changes based on the number of rooms you rent. For 2 bedrooms (minimum number you can rent) it is $600, for 3 rooms $700, for 4 rooms $800 and for all 5 bedrooms it is $1,050 nightly, This is a nice feature as you may start renting it as a 2 bedroom home and then have friends or family decide they want to come so then you can add extra rooms on as long as we know in advance.

Guestbook comments from the manager

2 Papayas was so helpful with whatever we needed- many thanks to the staff.

Stunning location, perfect large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

I am tempted to prevaricate and say the house was satisfactory to keep rentals lower. It would be a lie. The location is stunning. The set up of the rooms perfectly suits our large family. The hosts are gracious and the access to the beach is divine. This is our favorite stay on the Big Island.

Great location, perfect for indoor outdoor vacation living

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for an extended family to stay. Thanks to the 2 Papayas crew for making our stay easy and comfortable. The house is very open, and has a great rustic feel to it. We would and plan to come back.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Treadwell House worked perfectly for our family of 10 plus a baby! The house accommodated all our needs with a well-supplied kitchen, beach gear, ample towels and thoughtful touches like a warm outdoor shower. The beautiful beach is literally steps away and was great for swimming and snorkeling.

Treadwell house and beach were absolutely perfect for our family of grandparents, adult children and young grandchildren. The spacious, casual house and beautiful beach were just what we hoped for.

Glamping on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Glamor camping - glamping! We rented 4 bedrooms which came with 3 full baths. This was exactly what we were looking for! Perfectly set right on the beach but very private. No need to pack for your day at the beach - you re there! Nothing more lovely than morning coffee with your toes in the sand. We loved grilling dinner on the beach. Loved the coziness the trees on the beach created with nooks to hang out in. Snorkeled with turtles from out front. Had some great waves on a few days for boogie boarding.

Two walls of the great room /kitchen open up and you feel like you are outdoors. We ate most of our meals on the covered front porch. Perfect temperatures day and night. The beds were super comfortable with plenty of pillows and fans in each room. We stayed for 8 days and didn't even use all the bath or beach towels provided. We love to cook - actually packed my own knives but didn't need to - there was not a pot, pan, bowl or knife we lacked.

We have rented many vacation houses and it was so lovely to have soap, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, sunscreen, bug spray and many spices, etc already there. The rental company, 2papayas was wonderful. We had a couple of questions while we were there and even on a Sunday morning we were answered immediately! We are already planning our next trip and may even bring more folks along to use the 5th bedroom suite.

Loved the architecture and the beautifully thought out design. Thank you Treadwell owners and 2Papayas.

Treadwell is Beach House Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 6 our our friends stayed at Treadwell for our wedding week. Having so much space, the outdoor concept, being steps from the beach, and the awesome amenities made our stay as good as it gets. We wanted for nothing during our stay at the Treadwell. All the bedding, towels, kitchen tools were fantastic and the house is set up to handle large groups really well. We never felt cramped. The first group in our party didn't arrive until the wee hours of the night and the property managers were so accommodating and understanding. We loved waking up to the sounds of birds, having coffee on the beach in the morning, and coming back from exploring to hit the beach. Staying at Treadwell allows you to double or triple your beach time! The sunsets are spectacular as is the snorkeling. I can't say it enough. Stay at the Treadwell! You will love it!
