  • Relaxing Stay

    "Blue Dragon was in great shape, clean, nicely outfitted and very comfortable for four adults and one child. 2Papayas was nice to work with, always responding quickly and letting us check in a little early & check out a little late. Very much enjoyed the lanai, the loungers closer to the water, the outdoor shower, and of course the tide pools. There were plenty of beach towels and chairs (might be time to replace the chairs, though), plus boogie boards and snorkel equipment. AC in bedrooms was welcome and worked perfectly. Highly recommend Blue Dragon restaurant, Kohala Sail & Sea (departs out of Kawaihae harbor), and the Mauna Kea Moonlight Manta snorkel trip (max. 6 people, an amazing experience). Puako is the best!"

  • Lovely and Comfortable

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and well-maintained. It's fully stocked with everything needed to make one’s stay comfortable, from kitchen supplies to beach towels. The owner, Carolyn, was easy to communicate with and we found her attentive to the needs of her guests. (Renters just prior to our visit had caused some problems and the cleaning staff worked diligently to address them. Carolyn called us during our stay to make sure everything was in good order.) She also provided plenty of information about the Kohala coast area, the Fairways complex and the unit itself. We’ve stayed in several rentals in the Mauna Lani resort and we think this is the best of them all."

  • Awesome Townhome

    "We stayed in the Villa for a fantastic week and enjoyed every moment of it. What we loved best about our vacation was that "at-home" feeling. Besides the amount of space we had - over 2000 sq feet for the 3 of us, we loved the fact that we had both levels to ourselves. We don't like living on top nor below another family. We only had neighbors to the side of us and never did we once hear any of them! The layout is amazing with the bedrooms located upstairs while the living space was on the lower level. The gourmet kitchen is large and has everything needed (note to self: No need to pack spices, aluminum foil and plastic wrap in the future). The kitchen had everything imaginable! We particularly enjoyed the Viking Grill on the Lanai and used it frequently. We picked up Steaks, Chicken, and Salad from Costco and supplement it with locally grown fruits for a delicious dinner. Having a washer / drying in the villa was great as we were able to do laundry every few days. Although this was our first time to the Big Island, it won't be our last. In the past, we've vacationed primarily in Maui. But having now spent 2 weeks on the BI, we can honestly say that we enjoy the BI as much, if not more than Maui. We love the serenity, the quaintness and the laid-back lifestyle of the Big Island. We loved the Farmer's Markets particularly for the hard-to-find island fruits like Cherimoya, Jackfruit, and Soursop (which btw, is hard to find on Maui). While the BI is big and driving is required to the beaches, markets and shops (only the Shops at Mauna Lani are within walking distance), we got used to driving to where we needed to get to. We really liked the location of the Mauna Lani Fairways as it allowed us to get to Waikoloa, Waimea, Hilo, Kalapana, and Kona easily via the Hawaii Belt Road or Saddle Road. It was also very close to some of the best golf courses in Hawaii. We purchased a Hawaii Golf Deals Card and used it extensively at the 3 Waikoloa Courses, Hapuna and at Mauna Kea. We had a fantastic time on the Big Island of Hawaii and our accomodations added so much more to our vacation. We wanted a place where we would enjoy hanging out and not just a place to "come back and crash". It's a little piece of heaven right in paradise!"

  • Good Location....Great Amenities

    "This is an extremely well equipped rental from the kitchen to all of the available beach equipment. 2papayas provide excellent service when we needed it. We'd rent it again in a heartbeat."
