Great location and attentive manager
Great location and attentive manager!
Thank you for your review. We hope to have you back in the future.
Best property management
This was our 2nd time staying here and our 3rd time using 2Papayas, the awesome property management company on the Big Island. Each time we have stayed in one of their houses has been a perfect vacation, from the expertly stocked kitchens to bathrooms with big fluffy towels, and always available and attentive staff of 2Papayas. The Waialea Bay house is perfectly situated with a secret path to the beach, a wonderful outdoor shower that has hot water to wash off the sand, and private setting with beautiful flowering trees and foliage surrounding. It is simply our favorite place to stay on the Big Island and I’m sure we will be back. We came to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary (got hitched here on the Kohala coast) and I was so sad to leave our little paradise. Thank you and Mahalo to Mary and Marley for providing such an exceptional experience. Aloha!🌺�🌺�🌺�
Wanted this to be great, it was good
Overall, we enjoyed our time here, but a few disappointments mixed with the good:
Really off the beaten path
Perfect size for a couple, everything you could need
Very close to a lovely shaded beach
OK snorkeling (too murky for me, but my husband loved it, saw a sea turtle)
Easy to get to
Bed was soft, but firm
Close to other homes, but enough foliage and ground cover to feel private.
One of the weekends we were here was a holiday weekend and the beach was VERY crowded. The rest of the week days it was very quiet, but it is a public beach well known for the shade, so just know on weekends or the holiday it can be crowded.
The description says there is an ocean breeze, but that was not our experience. I don’t know if it was a bad time of year, or if the foliage might be getting too tall, but there was absolutely no breeze at all. The air was still. With Hi 80’s in the day and low 70’s at night (2am), we really didn’t sleep… couldn’t sleep except from about 2-7am because it was just so hot the rest of the time.
Overall, we enjoyed our time, but it was just too hot to stay in the house without a true ocean breeze or a room a/c. :(
We really could not have picked a better spot. Our host greeted us on arrival with cool towels and a lei for my daughter's birthday. Stores are close to stock up and the beach that has the best weather on the island is steps away. The beach chairs provided were used every day and the snorkeling and rope swings provided all day entertainment for our 10 year old. Lots of cool creatures and flowers to check out right on the property. There was a great library to cover your reading interests. Internet worked great. The place has everything you need for a great vacation.
Thank you so much for your nice review. We are so glad you two enjoyed your time at the home. We would love to have you back if future travels bring you back to the big island.

Great location but house needs A/C
This house is located on a beautiful beach with very good snorkeling and swimming. Large colorful fish can be seen within 50 feet of the beach. The house is nice but small. Like many houses in Hawaii, it does not have air conditioning. We had trouble sleeping a couple of nights when the trade winds were not blowing. The house was hot and humid, even with the ceiling fans all running full blast. A small window A/C unit would have made our stay much more comfortable. The 2-Papayas staff was very responsive and helpful with tips on where to shop, dine, etc. They do expect you to do some housekeeping like taking trash to the transfer station. I feel like they should do that for you given the cost of the rental. You shouldn't have to drive to the dump on your vacation. Overall, we had a great stay except for the hot and humid house.
Great location! No air conditioning...
This was our first time to the Big Island and found the location perfect. The rental was well stocked and looked exactly as pictured. The only draw back was there was no air conditioning. Our trip was in July with 91 degree days/80 degree nights and humidity well over 50%. We couldn't spend anytime in the house during the day. I was hoping to take a nap after the beach and it was not possible. Some nights were okay when there were trade winds. Sadly, only a few nights had a breeze. They have many fans, unfortunately, it wasn't enough. A window or wall air conditioner would be a great addition to the bedroom. I would rent this location again, but not in the summer.
Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the location and found the home to be well stocked. Most homes in the area are not air conditioned and rely on trade winds and fans. This can be a huge change for guests that are from areas that are predominately air conditioned. We would have been happy to bring extra fans over if it may have made a difference in helping you take an afternoon nap, as those are nice to have after a day at the beach. We do manage a handful of homes with air conditioning so hopefully we can be of assistance if you return in the Summer. We would love to have you back.
