Puako House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Four generations of the island-based Black family have owned and loved this special oasis by the sea, presided over by the oldest and largest banyan tree in Puako. The family’s handiwork is present in the ocean-side groves of coconut palms soaring 15 to 35 feet high: on the right are palms named and planted by individual family members, many as young children, or in honor of special friends; on the left, special events are marked by a separate grove. Together, the palms frame sunsets and the neighboring island of Maui, dominated by the 10,000-foot-high mountain of Haleakala.

The property was chosen by the family matriarch in the early 1950s for its location along some of the best tidal pools in Puako, where children can swim, fish and play, protected by a perimeter of ancient lava flows. The adjacent “Big Rock” rises above the pools, setting the stage for social gatherings and sunset watching. Turtles come to call daily, feeding on the seaweed at the Big Rock’s edge. In the winter, humpback whales pass by, 100-plus yards offshore, cavorting with their young. With the constant sea breezes, the rustling coconut palms and waves provide a natural rhythm of music to this idyllic setting.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We learned about Beach Banyon from friends of the owners, so we were a bit biased from the start. But what we experienced was totally beyond all expectations, meaning near perfection. The position of the house under the commanding banyon tree was amazing. It was just two of us in the house, but six could be accommodated easily. Our days began taking our coffee down to the lava rocks and watching whales swim by. Then we searched the tidal pools counting turtles as they swam about. We walked endlessly up and down the lava beds, exploring all the nooks and crannies. We did venture out during the day, (Whale Watching, North Shore hikes, Volcanoes NP) but were reluctant to leave the setting to go out to dinner, so we loaded up on food (the Puako General Store is a gem) and ate at home. We wanted to soak up every moment of our time and the views to take home. The folks at Two Papayas we fabulous, always there if there was a need, but totally respectful of our privacy. We would return in a heartbeat, but for a longer stay, and maybe with grandkids! There's nothing not to love.

We love Puako

This house has a beautiful location and an absolutely dream master bedroom. The house was comfy, well equipped and clean.
The magic garden and the lanai with the Holiday lights were very pleasant.
There is not much sound privacy in the house as it open in all rooms to the cross breezes. Not an issue for us as it was just the two of us but a consideration for a couple of couples traveling together.

The best vacation house ever

  • 5 of 5
This was hands down the best rental I've ever had the pleasure to stay in. It's not just the location, which has a gorgeous view and is far enough from the resorts to be quiet but not inconvenient. The house itself is just lovely, with so many personal touches. It is stocked with everything you could possibly need, down to seasonings for cooking. There is a tidal pool out back with a sandy bottom, big enough for the children to swim in and do a bit of snorkeling with the fish and visiting turtles. Just perfect!

Loved our stay at this house

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this house for a week this July. Our two girls (9 and 7) loved having big black rocks to climb around and watch the fish. We all loved spacious, light, breathy house that felt comfortable and cozy. The house has everything family could possibly need. Most days we had breakfasts and dinners at the house and it was great cooking in the morning to the sound of waves and then eating outside.

It is very close to a beautiful 69 Beach that has perfect swimming water, great snorkeling and lots of trees to find shade on hot sunny days.

we would love to come back to Big Island and this house.

This is a wonderful property, with EVERYTHING you could ever want or need! 2 Papayas manages this property very well, to include a stunning tropical arrangement, fresh papayas, cold drinks, and a cold washcloth on arrival! They are also there to answer and assist with any questions or concerns. This is the 2nd consecutive year that we have rented this exquisite property, and hope to be able to return next year.
I like the fact that there is salt, pepper, and other spices, and dry goods that previous renters have used. Da Fish House for fresh fish is great, as well as Greg Kaufman's boat out of Kohala Dive Shop (because he lets you keep your fish!). The general store has (surprisingly) good fresh produce, a paperback book swap library, and also sells beer, etc.
The house is great for 2 couples...even though it is a 3 bathroom house...the "day bed" in the living room is in view of anyone downstairs. If I had a 3rd couple, I would suggest renting the tree house, also on the property. The washer and dryer is a great convenience.
The sunsets and sound of the surf from this rental is great! Lots of room for shade or sun, and the whale watching, petroglyphs, and beach walking are an added bonus.
While I like to share positive experiences with potential renters, I just hope the house is available the next time we want to rent this awesome property!

The right side of the street.

This was our fourth stay on the Big Island, and this house was by far the best we have rented. It is simply perfect: it is very well maintained, very clean, very private, and is an ideal setting for people who want to relax, read and enjoy the spectacle of nature (tides coming in and out) from their breakfast table. It's also perfect for those who like to walk as you can walk all the way to Hapuna Beach via the quiet Road, or on the other side to Mauna Lani. Personally, I just could not make myself leave for very long as I knew how special this house was. Nothing beats the illusion that the tide pool in front of the house is yours, and my daughter actually called it "her" swimming-pool. Puako is a special place on the island, and we hope we can rent this perfect house again. It's simply idyllic.
