  • It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Incredible home in every way. It was spotless, perfectly maintained, and absolutely the greatest experience from start to finish. The weather was very warm during our stay, but the air-conditioning worked well during the heat of the day, and the openness of the home and ample fans allowed us to enjoy the evenings and the mornings without any need for AC. The secluded beach was fantastic as well. We enjoyed snorkeling right from the house. The house was stocked with everything we could possibly have imagined. You name it; it was there. And lastly, kudos to the owner, Nann, and her entire support staff (Jeremy, Chris, and Christian) for making the entire process from reservation to check-in to check-out a professional and wonderful experience for us. A best value for the price. We'll be back!"

  • 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."

  • A Special Place for R & R

    "I'm in love with this cute house. It had everything I needed as a solo traveler and for beach adventures. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. It's perfect for a relaxing getaway from the city and away from the busy tourists spots. I love that the ocean is just across the street; it's perfect for snorkeling, watching sunsets, swimming, or doing nothing and just sit back and enjoy the lovely beach. Puako is about 10 -15 mins drive to Hapuna beach and 20 mins drive to the farmer's market, grocery shop. There is also a General Store about a mile away where I get their locally made Kona Coffee Chocolate Cake. The best thing, however, is the warm and kind hospitality of Bud and Peg (and Shawn--their equally, wonderful neighbor who was helpful in the absence of the hosts the day I arrived as well as throughout my stay). I've definitely felt the local, Hawaiian Aloha spirit during my 5 day stay. Bud is full of stories and was gracious enough to walk with me and his dog, Sancho, to the coastal trail near the house. Highly recommend this hidden paradise. It's a great value for your money and time. Will look forward to stay here on my next visit to the Big Island! Mahalo Bud and Peg!"

  • Relax and enjoy the views on the Big Island

    "This was our second time on Puako beach but first time at the Whales Tail. House was exactly what we wanted. Beach in front of house was so nice especially for young kids. Very well stocked with beach chairs, snorkels masks fins etc. 2 papayas were wonderful, made sure we had everything we needed or asked for. Another plus for the Whales Tail is the house has air conditioning. Would highly recommend this house for a great family vacation"
