Simply built and lushly landscaped for beachside living, Honu offers a comfortable living/dining area and convenient kitchen with newer appliances at the center of the house, with two bedrooms and adjoining baths on opposite ends for privacy. Hardwood floors, expansive windows and ceiling fans throughout add to your comfort. All rooms have ocean views, as well as the covered lanai that overlooks the beautiful yard surrounded by bright purple bougainvillea and strikingly contrasting Royal Poinciana. Mature plantings include Singapore plumeria for lei-making, crown flowers that attract monarch butterflies, tiare gardenia, and fragrant pikake planted just outside the master bedroom.
The yard and plantings also serve to create privacy, while the garden walk gets you right to the beach, where you’ll swim, dive, snorkel and sunbathe while enjoying the manta rays, wintertime whale activity, and of course the enchanting honu.

As regular visitors to the Hawaiian islands, all in our party (3 adults and 2 children) agree this is the best beach! The Honu house is perfect: no traffic, no noise, perfectly set up with bedrooms at opposite ends yet both connect to the lanai. Everything you could want to prepare meals, go to the beach or just relax is provided. The group, 2 Papayas, are wonderful to deal with, being quick to respond to any requests. Was very difficult to leave this ideallic spot. We will definitely return.
So comfortable... felt totally at home at Honu Hou
I had no experience with the Big Island, Puako, Wailea Bay. Therefore it was VERY difficult to choose a house or location. I LOVED the simplicity, cleanliness and comfort of Honu House. The beach was divine... albeit a bit crowded on Saturday... good day to go on an excursion! I was almost in tears when the week came to an end. IF I return to Hawaii, I will definitely return to Honu House. The 2 Papayas people were right on.
Perfect Location for Two Couples
We recently spent 5 nights at Honu House...two couples...and the house was situated perfectly with a central living area and kitchen, and the bedrooms at the opposite ends of the house. 2 Papayas staff was super-friendly and very easy to work with. The house is in Puako with a short trail to the beach and many places to wander, explore the coast, and do some snorkeling. It is close to Kona, Kailua, and Waimea...the perfect location. The highlight of our trip was driving north up the coast, not far from the property, we saw whales spouting and leaping out of the ocean. It was a beautiful sight and made for a memorable journey to the Big Island. We loved Honu House and will be staying there again when we return. My only recommendation would be cushions for the chairs on the lanai because everyone wants to sit out there for hours and cushions would make it comfortable enough to do so. Old bones can be so unforgiving...
Aloha and Mahalo for a fabulous stay!
Wonderful beach house!
We spent two weeks at the Honu House, celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The home was very clean, functional and fully stocked with all essentials! The path to the secluded beach was very short, and the beach itself was perfect - just what the doctor ordered! We would definately stay here again should we return to the Big Island! 2Papayas, the property management company, was wonderful and always responsive to questions - including those related to places to go and where to find the best local food, etc.
Fantastic location by beach
We loved the location with a short walk to the beach !!! And, the shade was fantastic since the sun was very hot
in July. The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfect would have been an air conditioner. House was very well appointed with kitchen utensils, linens, etc. They had everything we needed including beach chairs,
toys for the toddlers, snorkels, and towels. You could hear the waves from the patio !!
We spent a week at HONA house in Puako. It took awhile to write this in that adequate words can not express our happiness in having done so.
Sorry to say we never got to use the kitchen table , son, daughter in law two grand kids and grandparents..not that we couldn't fit, but every meal was outside on the deck , breakfast and dinner, watching sun come up and sink into the sea at night. In between there was a short walk to our own private beach where snorkels were put on , underwater cameras tied to body and snorkeling and taking pictures with huge and I mean huge turtles. The house is laid out for sleeping and the open windows and fans made for natural cooling at night and waking of the birds in the morning.. Once back to California there were a lot of calls and texting going on between all individuals because we missed our being with each other in the HONA house in what the grand kids called Paradise. We all were ready to do a repeat. Thank you so much for a fabulous stay in a beautiful home and setting.
