  • Fabulous!

    "This home felt so comfortable and so spacious. There were six of us with plenty of room to spread out and have our own space. The house was spotless, even the lanai and the cabana, which are open to the air! The kitchen was well-equipped and had the little things that you don't like to have to buy, like spices and condiments. It was great having all the bathrooms so everyone had a place to shower without having to wait. We also really liked the grounds. They were beautifully maintained and we enjoyed seeing mongooses (I think that is what they were) and the geckos and hearing the birds, roosters and coqui frogs. The frogs put us right to sleep! We tried some of what the island had to offer, like the volcano, a kayaking and snorkeling tour, and a surfing lesson. I highly recommend the Kona Boys for your water sport needs. We tried some of the local cuisine like laulau from Super J's and poke from Da Poke Shack. I also highly recommend breakfast at Big Rob's Bakery. It is where the locals go to eat breakfast, isn't nearly as crowded as the Coffee Shack, and has wonderful food and luscious pastries. In the evenings we broke out the poker cards and chips on their awesome poker table. My goal for our vacation was to relax and we were well able to do that in this house. We would definitely come here again."

  • Wonderful!!!

    "We had a great stay. Dave was very helpful. We made juice every morning from fruit trees right in our backyard. We loved all the fresh air and sounds at night. The sheets smelled so fresh and clean and very comfortable. Decorated so cute. Easy drive to great snorkeling and lots of history all around. Thanks Dave and Beth!"

  • Fantastic

    "Excellent home with great lanai and sunsets. Good location to go southeast or north on the island. Great beaches and an organic fruit stand and deli within a 15 minute drive. The home owners are very friendly wanting to make sure you have the best experience possible"

  • Truly our home away from home!

    "Our extended family of 8 had a great time in the Papa Bay house. The property was everything it was advertised to be: well maintained, lots of space, and a well-stocked kitchen and linen cupboard (which was particularly important to us given we were planning to do a significant amount of cooking and had water activities planned for most days that we were on the Big Island). We especially liked the location - sort of halfway between Kona and Hilo - because it allowed us to get to attractions/activities on both coasts without long driving times. The laundry room was big and the washer/dryer were huge, allowing us to clean and dry our wet suits, swim gear, beach towels, etc. quickly and efficiently. John made the booking process very easy and was readily available to answer questions both before and during our stay. The place was secluded and quiet (which is what we wanted), but we did have to keep our windows closed at night to avoid being disturbed by the local roosters and turkeys. Overall, it was a great experience and we would highly recommend this Papa Bay home, especially for larger groups and families."
