The view and the lanai was the best! The condo was very comfortable and wonderfully decorated, especially the art on the walls. The grill was great too!
My wife and I spent 5 nights in this condo. This was our 5th trip to the Big Island and we had previously spent quite a bit of time in the Puako area where we find the snorkeling very good. Very close by are Beach 69, Hapuna beach and others that are part of the big hotels in the area.
We really enjoyed the well stocked kitchen, and the huge array of beach paraphernalia: chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, coolers, etc.
The master bedroom was nicely appointed, and has a sliding door out to the lanai with an ocean view. Out the back door is a stunning view of Mauna Kea, with the telescopes clearly visible on the summit. The weather was fairly hot for most of our stay, but when the wind kept up, the breezes blowing through kept the unit comfortable. We did use the air-conditioner 2 nights, but after 4 or 5 hours, it stopped working, luckily by then the breeze had started up again.
We had a great experience at this Puako condo during our five week stay. The condo was spacious and very comfortable. While air-conditioning was available, we found we did not need it as there were ceiling fans in every room and we were able to open the sliders in living room and master bedroom which provided a fabulous cross breeze throughout the condo. We loved the lanai from which we had an ocean view and spent much time out there relaxing as well as watching the beautiful sunsets. Dining out there was a real treat. The condo was so well stocked that we did not have to buy a thing or do without. We found everything in the kitchen we needed to prep and cook, including a great set of knives. We also found snorkeling gear, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, bogey boards, coolers, back packs, first aid supplies, a sewing kit, and many other items as well. Mary Fox and the staff at 2 Papayas were wonderful! They were accommodating and very friendly!
We have been coming to Puako regularly since 1989 and have normally taken a beach front house but the condos are an excellent relatively inexpensive alternative for a longer stay.The condo is well furnished and has everything you need including snorkel gear. Only a few minutes to the beach and the swimming pool is excellent. The condo gardens and facilities are very well maintained and I am happy to recommend this rental.2 Papayas staff very helpful.
We spent two glorious weeks in this Puako condo. Very roomy, everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay, comfy beds, nice lanai with a beautiful view of ocean out front and the mountain behind, two pools a regular and wading pool. We even saw 5 wild turkeys out the back door. While the beach out front is not the best for swimming, good for kids though, it was great for seeing the turtles, looking in the tide pools and watching the sunsets. Beach 69, Hapuna and Mauna Kea just a short car trip up the road. We would have liked to snorkel the Puako reef but surf conditions were too rough and Beach 69 was only good on one of our days. Hapuna is a huge beach with good snorkelling on the north end and good boogie boarding but Mauna Kea was our favourite but you have to go early to get a parking spot from the hotel. The condo location was perfect for exploring the north end of the island and down to the many beaches south to the airport and the resort areas of Fairmont Orchid, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa. Loved it all.
We loved the condo. It isn't huge and impersonal and everyone was friendly. The lanai was small but perfectly equipped with 2 adirondack chairs, a table and chairs and barbecue. The kitchen had better utensils and equipment than we have at home, and we really appreciated having a safe. We loved all the beach and snorkeling equipment. It was so convenient not to have to rent fins (we had brought our own snorkels and masks) and we made good use of the beach chairs, the mats, the noodles. There was a closet full of other beach equipment we didn't get to use. Best of all, right across the street is access to beaches we had to ourselves. Great for sunsets and snorkeling. Other fine beaches are very close by. We enjoyed visiting all the dogs in the office -- anyone who rescues dogs is a friend of ours! We also loved having the store next door. All in all, a wonderful place.
"You will enjoy visiting Puako, especially if you stay at this property. The condo is quiet, fresh and clean; tastefully decorated, and fully stocked with a brand new washer/dryer; towels, sumptuous bedding, CD’s, pool toys, snorkeling gear and most importantly – beach chairs! I was so impressed with the fully-equipped kitchen, that we made it a point to make dinner a couple times during our stay.
Outside, the resident manager is constantly at work pruning, cleaning and maintaining the lush foliage that surrounds the pristine pool. We really felt the Aloha spirit every time we stepped into the elevator, as there was a fragrant arrangement of newly picked plumeria blossoms that she had lovingly placed there.
There’s onsite parking and, get this, a quaint local grocery right next door that carries everything, including our favorite bottle of red wine that we never expected to find outside of the Bay Area! Public access to the beach is just across the street.
Our 8-day stay was magical. We sat out on the lanai and sipped cocktails or had breakfast and dinner while looking out over the ocean. In a stroke of good fortune, we even watched a beautiful lunar eclipse. The warm tropical breezes waft through the condo assisted by the overhead ceiling fans, but you can even crank up the air conditioner if you like to sleep cuddled up in a comforter.
Believe the photos on the website. The reality is even better. And the management! The people at 2 Papayas are responsive and friendly. They went completely out of their way to see that we had a pleasant stay. I’m sure that guests would enjoy being at any property that they manage.
Finally, don’t miss nearby Beach 69 and Hapuna Beach. For shopping and dining, Waikaloa and Mana Lani Resorts are just a 10 minute drive away. Sunsets are magnificent. And of course, the Big Island speaks for itself.
Beach access is a short walk from the condo, across the street and down a couple houses. This is a great children's beach as the outer reef protects it from the wind and high surf. There are a few shade trees on the south end. Great spot to snorkel and to kayak. Kayaks can be rented nearby.
