  • Puako Magic

    "A beautiful home awaits! We enjoyed our stay immensely--from morning coffee on the lanai to the gorgeous sunsets, each day held new discoveries. We watched each morning as a small flock of night herons flew out over the tide pools and landed on the lava, watching and waiting patiently for their prey. One morning, one of them caught a fish and swallowed it whole, right in front of the house (got some great photos)! There was a parade of wild turkeys that sauntered by, and there were myna birds clowning around with their raucous calls. Watching the honu (Hawai'ian green sea turtles)--so graceful in the water, so lethargic on land--and all manner of tropical fish made for hours of enjoyment. We saw a peacock flounder hiding in the sandy bottom, a snowflake eel, schools of Moorish idols, numerous butterfly fish, yellow tangs and many, many other species during our snorkeling and kayaking excursions. As if that's not enough, each evening brought another day-ending masterpiece over the Pacific. Truly magic!"

  • Cozy Condo

    "We had a great experience at this Puako condo during our five week stay. The condo was spacious and very comfortable. While air-conditioning was available, we found we did not need it as there were ceiling fans in every room and we were able to open the sliders in living room and master bedroom which provided a fabulous cross breeze throughout the condo. We loved the lanai from which we had an ocean view and spent much time out there relaxing as well as watching the beautiful sunsets. Dining out there was a real treat. The condo was so well stocked that we did not have to buy a thing or do without. We found everything in the kitchen we needed to prep and cook, including a great set of knives. We also found snorkeling gear, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, bogey boards, coolers, back packs, first aid supplies, a sewing kit, and many other items as well. Mary Fox and the staff at 2 Papayas were wonderful! They were accommodating and very friendly!"

  • Perfect for Family

    "The condo provided the perfect location and accomodations for our family's Spring Break vacation. The three bedrooms and two baths provided plenty of room for our teenagers, in a quiet location. From the third floor balcony, we enjoyed great views of the ocean, whale watching, and beautiful sunsets. There is a beautiful beach across the street, and you are only 5-15 minutes away from additional pristine beaches, hiking locations, and shopping centers. The General Store next door stocks your basic grocery items, as well as many fresh specialty items and friendly sales associates. We appreciated all of the comforts of home and recreational gear, with the well stocked inventory of boogey boards, beach chairs & towels, snorkel gear, cooler, kitchen appliances and dishes, linens, travel guides, and more. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves and waking up to the sounds of tropical birds. The pool is warm and clean and the grounds are well maintained and inviting, with a variety of tropical plants and flowers. The reserved parking space was a bonus, and the owners were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend this condo, when visiting the Big Island."

  • Well stocked for our trip. Wish we had known more.

    "I was born and raised on the Big Island and this location is perfect for getting around the island, close to many of my favorite beaches, and full of supplies for adventures in Hawaii. I really wish we knew a little more about what the place had available so we could have packed a little better. There is a washer and dryer on the premises, so we could have packed fewer clothes. There is tons of snorkel gear, 3 boogie boards, and assorted games throughout. These are all great things for the place to have, I just wish they were better advertised. Biggest complaint is the lack of air conditioning. Not much of a problem at night or in the morning, but a little brutal during the day."
