  • Big Island Paradise

    "First the house: well equipped, with everything you would want, inside and out. The floating lounge chairs are great, snorkeling equipment great. The family kitchen area perfect for a large group. We were only five but we all had room to cook in the kitchen, eat, play games, do whatever we wanted to. Beach was very private, open the gate and boom, the beach. Management: 2papayas, excellent. They welcomed us when we arrived, they had a little welcome package plus some items we ordered. They walked us through the house, how to get in/out and all the things you would want to know about the house plus the Big Island. Great people! The location was perfect as a base camp for this Island. First, you are in the desert, so the weather is always beautiful. But within 20 minutes you are in lush green tropical forest, an hour you are 13,000ft high and 40 degrees. Day trips to the south side or East side are very easy. To be able to experience 11 out of 13 climate zones in one day is amazing. Summary: you cannot go wrong. This house is all equipped, bring you and your clothes and leave the rest and the worries behind. When I come back this is where I will be."

  • 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!"

  • Relaxing Stay

    "Blue Dragon was in great shape, clean, nicely outfitted and very comfortable for four adults and one child. 2Papayas was nice to work with, always responding quickly and letting us check in a little early & check out a little late. Very much enjoyed the lanai, the loungers closer to the water, the outdoor shower, and of course the tide pools. There were plenty of beach towels and chairs (might be time to replace the chairs, though), plus boogie boards and snorkel equipment. AC in bedrooms was welcome and worked perfectly. Highly recommend Blue Dragon restaurant, Kohala Sail & Sea (departs out of Kawaihae harbor), and the Mauna Kea Moonlight Manta snorkel trip (max. 6 people, an amazing experience). Puako is the best!"

  • 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."
