  • total relaxation

    "We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Ehu Kai. It was recommended to us by a very good friend who had stayed there. It is a very comfortable small house with a nice covered porch from which you can see the ocean through the trees. It is a very short walk down a pretty path to a lovely beach with lots of shade and good snorkling. It is also on a hiking trail that runs along the coast and allows you to walk north to Hapuna beach and south to Puako Bay. It is very quiet and private. If you want to get away from civilization to read, relax, swim, hike this place is a great choice. If you want air conditioning, a big screen tv, nearby restaurants and shopping you would likely not be happy here. It was just what we were looking for and we loved our stay. We loved the outdoor hot shower and the grills, both charcoal and gas. The kitchen is adequate for meal preparation----we prepared and ate all our meals at the house for the week. This place is not fancy, but very comfortable. The property managers are very nice and helpful and also rent kayaks, surfboards, stand-up paddle boards and bikes which they will deliver to the house. There are beach chairs and mats, boogie boards and some snorkling gear at the house. We would definitely come back again and would recommend it to family and friends."

  • 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."

  • Tip top on the top!

    "We have been here before to this condo building. The unit we have rented in the past was booked so we found this one. We really enjoyed our stay at this unit. We found it in very good condition. We were pleased with the wide assortment of kitchen items. We usually just "move in" and never buy any meals in restaurants other than the first day. Often we find we need something that wasn't in the condo. We bought one thing: a dish cloth. So was really well stocked. None of us had ever used a microwave-convection combination unit so that was a learning curve. But was ok. The kitchen even has some nice large knives that cut up our pineapples very nicely. The unit was decorated very nicely. The in unit washer and dryer was so convenient. We used the grill on the lanai and it was wonderful. There was a nice selection of beach toys, chairs, and some snorkle gear. And beach towels in the closet. We felt right at home. The best part of all was the view from the lanai. We ate every meal out there so we could see or hear the ocean. We also like the view out the back that looks toward Mauna Kea. We were thrilled to see it have a snow cap. The Puako General Store had a nice variety of things. Seemed nicer than last trip. We were sad that there were no sea turtles this trip. We also saw so many other times. They must have been on vacation right now. We like Beach 69, Hapuna, and the Mauna Kea Beaches. I feel they are some of the nicest in the islands. We did our usual trip to Hilo and the falls. Stopped at the Volcanoes, watched the waves crash on the north shore and went to the Vanilla Farm for lunch and tour..... a must. The people at the condo complex are always helpful. Sara was happy to see us again and keeps the place looking top top. Everything was good overall. I was probably the least happy with the management folks. Didn't seem to have the warm Hawaiian Spirit. I never had a bad experience, just basically no experience with them. Guess that isnt quite correct. They had apparently placed a large pointsettia plant in the unit to make it festive. Make sure you give them lots of notice to call you back if you leave a message. I did find I like it better renting from the owners, rather than a property management company where you are just another customer. There were three couples of us and we all would certainly return again to the Kohala Waikoloa area again."

  • Very welcoming Hale Ohana!

    "A total of eight of our extended family stayed at Hale Ohana for three weeks in December. This home had everything we could wish for...a well-stocked kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, huge lanai, & outdoor shower to name a few! We loved watching the sun hit the waves, watching for whales (which frequented the water directly off the reef!) watching the turtles and the abundant sea life over the wall, and the spectacular sunsets! While the rollers were to rough to launch kayaks directly off the house, there is shore access a few houses down, with great snorkeling there as well. This isn't our first rental on Puako Beach Drive through 2 Papayas, they always take care of us, and we hope to be blessed enough to return again!"
