  • Beautiful Home/Beautiful Views

    "We were looking for a little diversity in our Big Island vacation, and this beautiful vacation home gave it to us. Perched a mile or so beyond the town of Waimea, we were at 3200 feet, with cool and misty night temperatures and sweeping views of the Maunakea volcano. Guy's home was very tastefully furnished with African pieces, and it was an open and relaxing environment and a great place to relax. It's full of interesting books, has robust wifi and good TV internet options, plus a gas fireplace for the cool evenings. We all liked to cook, and the home has an amazing kitchen with high quality appliances, beautiful cookware and everything you could need. Waimea has a couple of good markets, plus an organic market (be prepared for high food prices). We visited the Saturday market in town, as well. A 20-minute drive took us to the beaches down the highway from Waimea. There the weather is warm and tropical. Guy has boogie boards, umbrellas, snorkels, beach towels and flippers, so that was handy. It's easy to get to the little town of Hawi via a beautiful drive, and it's an easy drive to Hilo. We thought the house was perfectly situated to see a lot of interesting, diverse parts of the island. (Our son accomplished his goal of running to the top of Maunakea at 13,803 feet, where he had to cross a couple of snowfields to reach the summit!) We would highly recommend this VRBO to friends and family. (I forgot to mention the wild turkeys that roam around the neighborhood; we liked them!)"

  • Just lovely!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this property. We loved the location near our favorite beaches, and spent a good deal of time just lazing in this comfortable home. It is beautifully decorated and we enjoyed both the shower and the soaking tub. The team at 2 Papayas are excellent ambassadors. Marley took time to show us how everything worked - a big help -for which we were very grateful!"

  • 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."

  • Excellent location, amenities and value!

    "After 4 visits to the Big Island we found our "sweet spot" on the Kohala coast. We were in residence for a week and a half in mid January and already planning our next visit. This condominium is the perfect size and location for one or two couples. Until now it had been a challenge to find a beautifully appointed, perfectly located smaller property for one couple. Too many of the premier properties have more than 3 bedrooms, leaving one couple with too much unused/unwanted space at much higher rental rates. Also, the entire property of Kumulani is a very well built, well laid out and well designed property. 60+ years of living in a family of builders/developers/interior designers I understand these critical elements, and this property and specifically this home, hits the mark. Being able to access the amenities at the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince hotels completes the perfect package. (An additional, but very worthwhile, expense.) A quick drive (or longer walk) to both hotels gives the best of both worlds. Privacy in a lovely home with amazing sunset vistas- photos are spot on- as well as the benefits of your own beach club with excellent restaurants. The cabanas on the grass at the Mauna Kea, enjoying a midday lunch is heavenly. The best beach on the island, by the way. Sutton and Anne have created a casually elegant home that has been appointed with more amenities than most. Their home is indeed one of the best locations on this property and I would venture to say one of the most beautifully decorated interiors. They were exceptionally easy to work with from booking through our departure. The highest level of Viking appliances, large BBQ on the deck and a fully stocked kitchen also make this a cook's dream. The master bedroom was very comfortable with views in two directions. The cross breezes from this well designed floor plan added to the joy of simply leaving windows open day and night, especially since all were well screened. We enjoyed nightly sunsets and incredible starry skies from the wrap around lanai. We give this little piece of paradise our highest recommendation."
