Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Four generations of the island-based Black family have owned and loved this special oasis by the sea, presided over by the oldest and largest banyan tree in Puako. A well-received addition to the beloved Beach Banyan compound, the Treehouse is a cheery upstairs studio cottage seemingly slung between the graceful banyan branches. Looking out to a mesmerizing scene of ancient lava rocks and ocean waves, the Treehouse provides a unique blend of timeless island lifestyle and modern-day creature comforts. It’s a perfect hideaway for couples looking for a dreamy oceanside retreat. Access to the ocean is next door at the public path rather than through the yard of the larger Beach Banyan on property, and easy half-minute walk.

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 local 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....

Why Mary A. Fox R (B) Active chose Puako

You get the benefit of the ocean views and ocean breeze at an affordable price. The closest public access is next door, a gathering spot for some residents to watch the sunset each evening. If you like to snorkel or dive then walk 5 minutes to Paniau State Park for world-class underwater adventure.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I don't even know where to start on what I like best because I really like this little house. Maybe the waves and their sound; and then all the windows, the pitched ceiling, the airiness, the tree and the birds, furniture and cleanliness. I would definitely like to stay in Tree House again soon.

Wonderful property and service from 2 Papayas

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the Tree House. It was very thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our days by the ocean. Mary and Marley from 2 Papayas were super attentive and responsive to us during our stay.

Quaint and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet location in a small neighborhood, short walk to a rocky beach for swimming/snorkeling in calm water. Not a lot to do other than relax, which is just the way we like it!

Best of Real Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Blacks' Puako home provided our family with a truly wonderful vacation. We surfed Paniau at dawn and dusk, floated blissfully in their perfect tide pool, and almost cried when it was time to leave. The excellent staff at 2Papayas ensured that every detail was attended to. The property was immaculate, perfectly outfitted and we were blessed with quiet neighbors, gentle trades, and scrumptious delicacies from the renowned Puako Store. Noah's ceviche is the bomb! Mahalo nui loa from a grateful family.

Banyan tree house

We had a great experience staying at this quaint cottage on the Banyan property. Small but had all the amenities we needed. Lovely views of the many beautiful trees and ocean beyond.

Tree House, Puako,

  • 4 of 5

Great location with nearby beaches to snorkel and sit in the sun or shade. Great walks every morning along the rugged shoreline watching the surf and whales. Comfortable studio. Very friendly neighborhood. The banyon tree made for a very comfortable place in the afternoons. 2 Papayas was easy to work with and responsive to our needs. The Wifi didn't work during our stay so nice break from the tech world.

Quiet Ocean View Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Quiet neighborhood with peaceful ocean front. Spectacular snorkeling in clear water steps from the treehouse.

Yes, live in bright green gecko wandered around the kitchen in the mornings.

Nice size studio for 2 people, with frig, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cooking supplies. Shower, hot water and plenty of draw and closet space. Coolers for food, spare snorkel gear and beach chairs were available from past tenants. Washer and Dryer located in the carport.
