A leisurely stroll through artistic etched glass doors welcome you into the spacious great room of Ohana Hale, one of Puako's premiere oceanfront homes. Stunning Brazilian teak hardwood floors throughout the home, combined with top-of-the-line appliances and Hawaiiana décor make this an ideal island vacation home. Plentiful oceanside sliders not only bring the sunlight and the sea breezes to you, but open up the tropical view for your pleasure. Cleverly designed to afford maximum privacy, this Puako home has three ocean side suites, each with a full bath.
Not only does this home provide a spacious, modern setting but the loving purchase of comfortable and beautiful furnishings give it a feel of home-away-from-home. The kitchen is a chef's dream with every small appliance and handy gadget a cook could need. My favorite spot is the large oceanside covered lanai, where a good book, a tall cool beverage, and the sights and sounds of the sea are all the companions one could desire. For those who must work, high-speed wireless Internet access is provided as well as a fax machine and work space, just off the kitchen. The office also has a trundle bed that is perfect for two youngsters or a single adult. GE and TAX tax W83723944-01.

Aloha, I am Mary Fox, R (B) and owner of 2 Papayas, LLC. I manage this wonderful Puako home on behalf of the Owners. I would love to help you and your family find the perfect home for your stay on the Big Island. I am a Puako resident, myself, so I am available to greet you upon arrival, answer any questions you may have, or attend to any concerns or requests that may arise during your stay. Until we meet in Paradise....
We absolutely loved staying at this home. I fear however that our vision of Hawaii has been permanently spoiled by this house, which was perfect in every conceivable way.
Thank you for setting it up for us, for greeting us, for running things so smoothly. Would you please also thank everyone at 2 Papayas?
During our stay both of my kids pulled me aside separately and said something along the lines of: “Dad, I could see making this a tradition.”
The house is perfect. The house was actually larger and more spacious than we had expected, especially with the huge en suites with every bedroom. The home is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean, and the interior stayed nice and cool even through the heat of the day. And the wooden floors are just spectacular.
The location is perfect, tucked away from the main road and the big resorts, giving it more of a community feel. You are only a few minutes away from some of the best beaches on the island and a couple of nice resorts if you want to go out for a nice meal. The ocean is right at your doorstep, and we snorkeled out front - we saw turtles every single day. We also rented a couple of kayaks for a couple of days - and they deliver right to your door.
Honestly, the owners/managers have thought of everything and anticipated your every need. We really appreciated being greeted by a friendly staff member who ensured we settled in OK and answered any questions. There was even a generous gift basket, which was a nice touch.
If I could give 6 stars I would - it is that good!
Great House, Great Location if you are wanting a very chilled experience. Must have Rock shoes as no sand out front. Owners were lovely. Lovely community. Manager fabulous!
Gorgeous Home. We frequently stay at Four Seasons Hualalai so expect quite a bit from quality and design - this property did not disappoint! Gorgeous interior design! The lanai is perfect. Kitchen is well-appointed with Scan Pan and Kitchen Aid. The staff at 2 Papayas was amazing. If you are looking for a pool, this is not the place for you - but the staff at 2 Papayas can help you find one.
This home is perfect for a family vacation, especially if you like to cook! The view out the living room glass doors is right out of a post card. The kitchen was great for the cooks in our family. Lots of appliances and utensils for whatever you want to make. The lanai is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beverage of your choice. We experienced the lanai at all hours - Quiet sunrise in the morning with a cup of coffee; bright beautiful blue waters with a cool fruit juice in the afternoon; and a serene sunset with a glass of wine. Perfect. We've already recommended it to several friends.
My family and I just recently returned from an absolutely wonderful trip to Big Island, especially due to this house. We had so much fun just being in this house. My favorites times were on the lanai in the mornings watching for whales w/my coffee and in the evening watching for whales w/my wine. Can it get any better? I cannot say enough good things about this house. It has everything you need in a beautiful setting. Each room and space is very tastefully furnished and fully equipped. It was so comfortable and relaxing just to be there. I highly recommend this house to others and I am looking forward to returning.
Our family of three couples stayed in this house for one week and enjoyed every aspect of it. First, 2 Papayas was great to work with and was welcoming. The house is beautiful and very nicely furnished and appointed. Each bedroom is a master. Nothing is lacking in the kitchen. The lanai runs the length of the house and overlooks the beautiful shoreline and the sound of the water which seduces one to relax. The upstairs room also has a well furnished lanai. Gorgeous sunsets, sea turtles up on the beach in the afternoon to rest, whales out in the ocean (bring binoculars).
Snorkeling is possible on the property but beware the sea urchins and rocks (the shore is gorgeous but a bit rough for swimming, bring good water shoes). There are beaches nearby, one with a lot of shade, that are well suited to swimming and snorkeling.
Can't go wrong here.
Dating back to ancient times, Puako was a fishing village that, until the 1950s, was accessible only by boat or by the Ala Kaha Kai (the ancient “shoreline trail” that is now partially restored as a National Historic Trail). One of Hawaii’s largest petroglyph fields is nearby.
Still a small beach community—fewer than 200 homes along a single road just 2 ½ miles long—Puako is blessed with a consistently sunny and gentle climate. An eclectic mix of residents, snowbirds and vacationers, the kids you see on bikes and the surfers at Paniau probably live here. As you cross paths with them, stop and “talk story” at the General Store, an informal community center as well as a convenient resource for supplies. Life in Puako—year-round and short-term—is relaxed, very relaxed, but never boring.
Rimmed by a protected marine preserve, the Puako reef offers endless sights for snorkeling, SCUBA diving, kayaking, swimming and tide pool wading. Join the “honu” (protected sea turtles—please enjoy them at a safe distance) for a swim or follow their lead and bask in the sun nearby. You’ll have a great vantage point for watching the wintertime display of whales and their young during their calving time in our warm waters.
If all this isn’t exciting enough, you can walk to the Mauna Lani or Fairmont Orchid Hotels for a sunset beverage, or visit the nearby Shops at Mauna Lani or the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace just down the highway for shopping and a variety of restaurants and galleries. On the way upcountry to Waimea, home of Parker Ranch and the “paniolos” (cowboys), a stop at Kawaihae Harbor offers additional restaurants, galleries, and a fish market. Golfers have numerous options, and adventurers may head for the summit of Mauna Kea, the active volcano Kilauea or a trip to the Zipline in Kapa’au.
