“Hale Ohana” Family House

Welcome to paradise at this contemporary Puako oceanfront home, situated to feature the stunning Pacific view and designed to invite the refreshing tropical breeze. Your friends and family can enjoy any of the three seaside bedrooms or the garden bedroom recently added, each featuring sliding glass doors opening to the outside. While you savor the sunset, watch the kids splashing in the pool. Prepare a meal of fresh local fish and island grown produce in the fully equipped kitchen or on the gas barbeque grill. Or have one of our talented local chefs come to you! For six years, guests have been delighting in this bit of paradise… where the relaxing rhythm of island life meets the modern conveniences that you have come to expect.

This 2200 square foot home was built just 10 years ago with an additional bedroom and bathroom added in fall of 2012, giving it even more room. The home was designed in old Hawaii plantation style with a roomy 1100 square feet of lanai, screens and sliders that open full length plus louvered windows to encourage the tropical trade winds to maintain the home at a comfortable temperature without the use of air conditioning. A seawall on the ocean side of the home protects the landscape from salt-water damage so the lush tropical flora flourishes. The dipping pool outside the north bedroom wing is the perfect spot to refresh after a day of golf or tennis at one of the nearby resorts. Between two tall coconut palms, sway in the cozy hammock while listening to the melody of the rolling waves. The covered lanai features built-in cushioned seating for two, teak lounge chairs and dining table, plus a serving area with sink.

Living area:

Stepping through the front door, the great-room’s ocean view will stop you in your tracks as you “ooh and ahh” over the colorful Pacific view. This room is a kitchen/living room combination designed so you can enjoy your guests or family while preparing a meal or a tall cool beverage. The modern kitchen has ample counter and cupboard space as well as top-of-the-line large and small appliances. Thoughtfully provided serving dishes and utensils are at your fingertips. Adjacent to the kitchen is the seating area featuring a plush down sofa and love seat, built in bookcases, flat screen TV, stereo with surround sound and a DVD Player. Wireless high speed Internet service is available throughout the home.


The spacious master bedroom with private bath is located on the south side of the home. Some of the convenient features are: built in closets, drawers and shelves, a bamboo desk, Hawaiian quilt on the king size bed, delightful local art, sliding glass door to the lanai, telephone and television. The adjoining master bath has double sinks, tiled walk-in shower, and a separate door leading outside.

Additional two bedrooms are located at the north end of the home. Accessible from a long hallway, both bedrooms are oceanfront with sliding glass doors opening onto the patio and pool area. Bedroom One features a queen-bed and a twin-sized bed, a comfy chair for reading or relaxing, telephone, and a stereo/DVD player. Bedroom Two has a queen-bed, desk, television, telephone and a teak lounge chair just outside on the porch. These bedrooms share one and half additional baths conveniently located just down the hall. The recently added fourth bedroom has a stunning garden view and private full bathroom.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have already recommended 2Papayas to my friends and family. It was so great to know that someone was available if we had any issues. We enjoyed stopping in the general store and Paul really loved those crab sandwiches! All around this was one of our best, most comfortable holidays away. We will definitely look at returning some time soon.

Very welcoming Hale Ohana!

  • 5 of 5

A total of eight of our extended family stayed at Hale Ohana for three weeks in December. This home had everything we could wish for...a well-stocked kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, huge lanai, & outdoor shower to name a few! We loved watching the sun hit the waves, watching for whales (which frequented the water directly off the reef!) watching the turtles and the abundant sea life over the wall, and the spectacular sunsets! While the rollers were to rough to launch kayaks directly off the house, there is shore access a few houses down, with great snorkeling there as well. This isn't our first rental on Puako Beach Drive through 2 Papayas, they always take care of us, and we hope to be blessed enough to return again!

This Puako updated and well furnished home was lovely for my husband our daughter and her boyfriend. Their bedroom was at opposite end of the house from ours. The house come with a well equipped kitchen as well as a generous supply of towels. Great ocean views with whales beyond and turtles and an eel just beyond the sea wall, wonderful lanai, comfy sofas, great TV, & outdoor shower. 2 Papayas met our every need. Only drawback: all doors are slatted for good airflow, but they do prevent privacy.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed at Hale Ohana. It was perfect! We saw whales breaching every day, turtles, eels and fish right over the sea wall. The house is very well equipped and so comfortable. We especially enjoyed the outdoors, the huge covered lanai, front garden and the outdoor shower. Management was welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. We loved the crab sandwiches at the general store and found a calm beach for snorkelling and swimming every morning. Look for the shore access closest to the general store. Close to every thing you might need. Loved it!!! Pool was perfect to cool down after a run or walk. Quiet neighbours. No need for air conditioning, the house cools itself with nice breezes throughout all day long. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, great art work. Not sure about the TV because we never turned it on. Can't say enough except I can't wait to return!

Multigenerational family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us! We thoroughly enjoyed our very relaxing holiday. The house has everything one could want, including privacy. The sound of the sea just outside made for wonderful sleeping. The view which changes with the tides, including turtles, fish, and sunsets was a highlight. Beautifully appointed with an amazing granite kitchen. We lived on the huge covered veranda. Even my husband (who can be difficult to please) will enjoy returning!! Thank you so much!

Paradise on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked through the front gate, until we left two weeks later, we experienced paradise! Everything about this house is spectacular…the view,the amenities, the ambiance, the wildlife, the weather, all made this our best family trip ever! Three generations enjoyed all the activities, beaches, zip lining, snorkeling, running, hiking,stargazing, whale, dolphin,and turtle watching. Cocktails and dinner on the lanai were so terrific we ate in every night. The kitchen is a dream, well-equipped including a cappucchino machine, microplane, plenty of dishes, glasses, pans, etc. Beds were wonderfully comfortable with quality linens. Hale Ohana is truly a fabulous family gathering place! We loved it and hope to return. Many thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us! Mahalo!
