Plumeria Cottage is a charming early-era-Puako beach bungalow--set amid mature palms, Milo tree, spectacular spreading Royal Poinciana and, of course, plumerias. Newly remodeled yet preserving many original details, you’ll enjoy a special vacation steeped in the continuity of this enduring community. Walk across the one-lane road for beach access or visit nearby Waialea Bay and Hapuna Beach for spectacular swimming, snorkeling, sunning or wintertime whale watching. Stop at the quaint Puako General Store for an ice-cream treat or cold drink, or visit nearby resorts for shopping, dining and Hawaiian-style events. This appealing one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage is ideal for a couple, perhaps with a young child. THERE IS ANOTHER HOME ON THE PROPERTY with a quiet long term renter.
Plumeria Cottage offers a vacation of ease indoors and out. Compact yet perfectly proportioned in the vintage beach style, it is a delightful combination of convenience and charm. And, with a roomy, sunny lanai and large shaded grassy yard, it becomes quite spacious. An outdoor-shower room with laundry and plenty of room for beach items and for drying wet towels and bathing suits keeps the indoors comfortable and relaxed.
Enter beside large plumerias into the living space, hang your keys just next to the door, step down to the kitchen on your right to put your market purchases away, or to the dining area followed by the sitting room. The bedroom, also a step down, is just beyond the kitchen and off the main living area. A sliding shoji-screen “window” provides cross ventilation as well as privacy. Window AC unit provides extra cool air on still days. Across the front of the cottage is a roomy deck and around the corner is the large outdoor shower room, so there’s no need to track sand and dripping water into your living space. Built-in shelves hold linens and both bath towels and beach towels.
Vertical bead-board paneling, clerestory windows for ventilation and horizontal sliding windows set the vintage tone. Lauhala mats and rattan floor coverings enhance the original pine floorboards plus new bamboo flooring in the kitchen and bedroom. Décor includes new microfiber sofa, reupholstered vintage rattan dining table and chairs. Local art echoes the simplicity and sweetness of the cottage.
The kitchen is updated with new cabinets, granite-tile counters, microwave and refrigerator yet maintains the original painted-brick wall, inset corner shelves, jalousie windows and vintage-look Hotpoint stove and oven. The new sink plus coffee maker and grinder, toaster, linens, dishes, flatware, cooking pots and utensils all meet modern expectations.
The bathroom with roomy shower stall (and jalousie windows for ventilation and privacy) has painted-wood detailing, old-style wooden medicine cabinet and additional sliding window for that added touch of light and greenery.

Lovely cottage & very close to beach
Found this gem at the last minute for a five night stay. Had more than everything that we needed. Two minute walk to beach with great sunsets and resting turtles. Five minute walk to where the locals dive and snorkel. Excellent outdoor living space where we enjoyed all our meals. Super clean. Will definitely refer others.
I was disappointed with getting stuck in a loop on the vrbo site during booking that required me to pay an extra $59 for an insurance that I did not need and the homeowner also did not require. To top it off vrbo will not give me a refund! If this is how vrbo works all the time I will not be using them again.
Awesome cottage near the beach!
We loved the quiet street, close to beaches and activities! The turtle sanctuary just across the street was absolutely amazing! Watching the turtles and sunset was the best!
The website photos were very accurate. Very comfortable and charming. Location is great!
The cabin location on Puako Beach Drive is so tropical and quiet.
we loved the studio and outdoor space in so many ways. It was quiet,comfortable, homey, sweet little kitchen was perfect for just the two of us. The location was great for whale watching, snorkeling and adventuring the walks and hikes and .in the area. Planning on returning to this cottage next year.
Great Puako cottage!
Lovely small cottage perfect for a couple and steps away from our favorite reef!
Charming cottage near the ocean
We were pleased with our stay in Puako. The house was as described, with a very well supplied kitchen. Our only issue was with the cable package supplied and when we brought it up with the 2 Papayas staff it was taken care of right away. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.
The small neighborhood of Puako is conveniently located near shopping, dining, golf, and numerous beaches, including the shorelines right in the area. Puako Beaches are not long stretches of white sand, but a combination of lava, coral and sandy with tidal pools teaming with sealife. Tide pools are great for kids to explore.
