  • Wonderful Vacation!

    "Aloha, We had the fortune to stay in beautiful Hale Mele Mele for the month of February. The owner has put her heart and soul into making this cottage the most perfect right down to the soft linens and fun dishes. It is quite acceptable for a couple and then if you have a couple of kids it is more than satisfactory. We loved the privacy of the garden “out back”, and enjoyed many BBQ’s during our stay. The outdoor shower with the teak floor boards …perfect…the galley style kitchen has everything one needs for cooking for two or six. If you are looking for a memorable cottage that has exquisite attention to detail this is for you."

  • Great Place to Stay

    "The Puako Condo was fabulous. It was in a great location on a quiet street, but literally three minutes from snorkeling and 5 minutes from a state park beach. It was also close to the main highway so easy access to and from where ever you want to go. The condo had everything you need, from kitchen supplies to towels to beach toys. It was roomy and well laid out. Not beach front but nice view of the ocean. The rental contact, Pattie, was easy to contact and available if I needed anything. I would stay there again...and again."

  • The Perfect Hawaiian Cottage

    "This was our second holiday stay in this charming little cottage in restful Puako. Two Papayas Rentals had our pre-ordered groceries all loaded into the refrigerator and we were set for the Christmas holidays. This is the perfect, quiet, little Hawaiian hideaway. The decor is so tasteful and I love all the extras that come with a home rental, such as the washer, dryer and a kitchen loaded with all the basics for cooking."

  • The sum of Paniau Surf Cottage is greater than its parts

    "My wife of fifty plus years and I have been visiting Puako each year for many years. How odd it is, to find a nearly-perfect house at the end of Puako Beach Drive after all those years. We rented the cottage a year ago and almost immediately, began to have questions about the location and the house. Would the house be as portrayed in images and words? Would it be dusty from the access road behind? Would it be noisy from the parking lot across the street? Would the neighbors be quiet? Would the house be hot during the day? Would it be clean? Would there be mildew and/or mold? Would there be excessive rules and regs? The answer to each of these questions (and others which I now can’t recall) was NO. Upon our arrival, Sheila met us and took us through a tour of the cottage … showing off the features and explaining what needed to be explained. [At this point, I must be brutally honest and say that … as an American male … I do not easily ask for directions. I never did figure out the DVR.] She was an invaluable neighbor and helper … and now our friend. Patty, the property manager, also was prompt with helpful answers and useful information. All aspects of the house and grounds delighted us. We particularly liked the lanai with its comfortable furniture, lights and fans (We ate all of our lunches … and a couple of dinners … there). Inside, we liked the simplicity and openness, the tile floors, the many ceiling fans and the lack of frou-frou. During the day, the interior remained cool with good ventilation from all sides. The trade winds provided a refreshing breeze from the ocean at the front. At night, cool winds came down from Mauna Kea to the rear. The house recently underwent an excellent upgrading ... what we needed was there and everything worked for us. Outside, the lawn and comfortable lounge chairs were perfect for catching some rays. The open space to the rear and side (views of volcanoes and kiawe) and the many varieties of butterflies and birds (including a pueo behind the house one day) … plus several mongooses … surrounded us with Big Island nature. A short walk across the street brought us to Paniau Bay and enjoyable shore walks in both directions. There were many spectacular sunsets. If we were to come again to Puako, we absolutely would reserve the Paniau Surf Cottage with no reservations what-so-ever. Hey, wait a minute ... we are returning next February!"
