Overview

About the property

Perfect for 1 or 2 couples! Ocean front with yard and beach access

Reef House Puako is a true old Hawaii getaway right on the blue Pacific Ocean. Snorkel with sea turtles from the sand and lava beach, explore tide pools, lounge in hammocks under the palms, watch for a green flash sunset, or just hang out at the two blue cottages with ocean and Maui views from almost every window. This will be a place you'll never want to leave.

In a grove of nine coconut palms, below spreading kamani and beach heliotrope, the original 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cottage accommodates a family of four (two adults, and 2 small children). The children would sleep on small 'punees' in the living area. Both the suite and cottage have private outdoor showers but no indoor showers or bathtubs.

This delightful, redwood-paneled beach house has Hawaiian and Asian art, a well-equipped kitchen, garden shower, dining area with an antique curly koa table seating, and sweeping ocean and Maui views from almost every window. The entire downstairs of the separate second cottage is a master suite, with bathroom and garden shower, for a second couple in your family. The suite is NEVER rented to another party during your stay. A private owner's apartment is upstairs but is rarely occupied.

Sorry but, no parties, weddings or large gatherings

Fabulous house and location... our girls loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house - in laid back Puako - is perfect. Right next to a marine preserve, we spent many hours looking through the tide pools for turtles, fish, sea urchins, hermit crabs, and watching whales go by in the distance. And the feel of the house - an old style Hawaiian house - is a nice change from the typical island condo. The house had everything you could need, including beach towels, chairs, sand toys, masks, snorkels, etc. It is also conveniently close to lots of places to eat if you don't feel like cooking in the well stocked kitchen. The staff at 2Papayas were wonderful and left lots of information on the local area - the farmer's market in Waimea was one of our favorites. And if you couldn't find something in the general store down the road, you probably don't need it. We would love to come back!

Beautiful location right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a tropical getaway. The ocean is only about 30 feet away and the backyard has wide views up the Kohala coast and across to Maui. There is not immediate beach access because of the lava rocks, so it is best to have a car for a very short drive to swimming beaches (you can walk, but if you want to bring snorkel equipment or beach chairs, it's best to drive). The house is very well furnished with anything you might need, making it feel like home. And, the staff at 2 Papayas are very helpful.

Ocean front rental. Private with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

Easy, easy, easy....quiet, peaceful on water. Owner's home is on property (not on water) and separate structure away from oceanfront rental. Owner only there for a few days during two week stay but treated me like it was my home instead of hers. Outdoor shower was incredible. Wish my home in California was suited for immediate install. Accommodations provided are all you need. Large living/dining open room with room to spread out. Parking spacious and off street, coin laundry with coins supply provided, barbecue, picnic table, and hammock for outside nap. Best reef on the island is out your back door for snorkeling and tide pools. World class golf, choice of resorts for dining 10 minutes away but why leave? Lots of windows for view of ocean and open air. Sunsets can't be missed each evening. Will return as soon as I can.

Pefrect location, awesome folks, incrdible relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We booked this on a recommendation and it was perfect. The living space of the house is spacious and comfortable. Lots of light and windows and easy access to outside. Outside there are 2 hammocks, lounge chairs, regular chairs, a table. There is a nice lawn area that attracts a ton of birds and then the beach. It is nicer than the pics show. At high tide the snorkeling is incredible and at low tide the tide pools are great. Close to beach 69. Charcoal BBQ, and coin laundry for convenience. Mary was great at taking our calls when we had questions and resolving issues. The office is right down the street next to the general store. Easy access to many of the resorts as well as short drive to Hawi and Wiamea as well as Kona. Perfect location. But best of all, the sea turtles. We had them visit everyday. So if you want to relax, enjoy the surf, see turtles, fish and lots of birds, this is the spot for you.

Beautiful view and sounds of the ocean waves

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Hawaii to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we could not have been more pleased with our stay in the Puako area and the cottage. It was well equipped and clean with some nice personal touches. The management company we dealt with was courteous, personable, and friendly. We loved taking naps on the hammock and looked forward each night to the sounds of the waves and the views of the setting sun. The sea turtles came up on shore each day to sun themselves; this was a special treat.
