  • 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!"

  • Idyllic location.

    "Great wraparound views, nice quiet street on the water with a nearly private beach area. The house is older but clean and well maintained. Responsive service from the nearby Two Papayas staff office. Highly recommended."

  • Delightful Cottage

    "My husband and I spent 3 night's at Alice's cottage. We chose the property because it was so close to a cultural event that we planned to attend on the first morning of our stay. We live on the other side of the island, several hours away, so driving in the early morning wasn't an option as the event started at 6:30 AM. The location was ideal but the cottage itself was even better. It was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and absolutely restful and peaceful. We especially loved the comfortable bed and the walk-in shower, both of which make a big difference when traveling, but really everything in the cottage was just lovely. We stopped in Waimea for groceries on our way to the cottage so made most of our meals there, but we also enjoyed shave ice from the truck in the Blue Dragon parking lot in Kawaihae (Original Big Island Shave Ice) as well as take-out sliders and fries from the Blue Dragon. The cottage is within minutes of several world-class beaches, so we spent several afternoons snorkeling at various spots. We also took a drive around the North Kohala and Hamakua Coast and spent one afternoon in Kailua Kona. The cottage is convenient to everything on that side of the island. And the sunsets are spectactular! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you, Alice."

  • Beautiful Home and Location, Plenty of Sea Turtles

    "We were a group of 4 couples, and this was the perfect place to stay. The well-equipped kitchen and huge lanai made it easy to hang out as a group, and the detached bedrooms gave plenty of privacy and quiet places to retreat. You'll need water shoes for the beach, but there were several pairs on hand, along with a beach umbrella and a few beach chairs. The water behind the house has some great snorkeling, actually, with plenty of fish, urchins, and coral. We also snorkeled with sea turtles most every day. This house is very convenient to Hapuna Beach, which is a great swimming and laying out beach. It's also only about a half hour from Kona-Kailua for a greater variety of restaurants and entertainment."
