  • 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."

  • Hui Pu is a fabulous vacation home on the best beach on the Big Island!!

    "I loved Hui Pu and would definitely stay there again. Five of us stayed there to celebrate my birthday. The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and we managed to keep it that way. The listing description does not really do it justice, as the ambience is difficult to capture in photographs. I really felt like I was in Hawaii, as the house is very authentic Hawaiian in its architecture and furnishings. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped and had everything we needed. We grilled fresh fish that we bought at the fish market nearby in Kawaihae Harbor. We ate dinner one night at the large round table under the gazebo, and another night we ate at the small table outside. When it was windy, we ate at the dining room table. We spent most of our time beachcombing on Wailea Beach and snorkeling and swimming in Wailea Bay. The snorkeling was fantastic, and we saw lots of colorful reef fish and green sea turtles every day. We also hiked on the Kahalui trail up to a point where we watched whales breach and enjoyed the spectacular scenery. In my opinion, there is no more perfect location anywhere on the island. I even invented a cocktail made with POG that we named the Hui Pui in honor of Hui Pu! The house is conveniently located near Kawaihae Harbor where we bought our fish and went on a snorkeling trip with Kohala Divers. it is also near the Mauna Kea Hotel, where we went for cocktails and to watch the sunset, and the Mauna Lani and Waikaloa Beach shopping centers, where we did our grocery shopping at Foodland and Island Gourmet Market. We did have plumbing problems in the downstairs bathroom in the main house, but the management company was extremely responsive and made arrangements to have repairs made as quickly as possible. It is an older home, so the plumbing could use some work, but that was the only negative thing about the house except for something loose that banged against the roof above the master bedroom when it was extremely windy. Once these two issues are addressed, I will be back again to Hui Pu!"

  • Second Kolea stay

    "We love this beach (sand, shade, snorkeling) and house, and 2 Papayas is a very responsive property manager. My husband is particularly happy with the cooking gear in the house, and there is a great lanai for meals and lounging. 5 miles away in Kawaihae is a wonderful fish store, next door to the best lunch truck (fish tacos and seared ahi salad). A very relaxing vacation all together."

  • Beautiful!!

    "My family ( 2 daughters, son in law and two year old grandson) was on the big Island for a wedding. My daughter and her husband and toddler stayed in the lower apartment. The house was very clean and well stocked. We loved the house!! It was steps to the beach. The house had everything you would need to go to the beach, chairs etc. The property manager was very helpful. She had a few groceries delivered so we would be able to have breakfast in the morning. We will be definitely be coming back in the future!"
