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.
