“Kaiakea” means 'expansive view of the sea.' This home provides exactly that. With palms indoors and out, views of ocean, Kohala Mountain and Maui, you’ll feel close to the sea everywhere in the house. Designed by the artistic hand of a resident architect to make the most of its seaside location, this home is kama’aina (child of the land, longtime resident) owned and loved for 30 years and now continuing under a different family, local ownership. It combines the essential beach-house views of ocean, honu (sea turtles), wintertime whales and striking sunsets with the best amenities that a luxury home offers. With two first-floor master bedroom suites, and one upstairs “view suite” with private balcony, and an open sleeping loft, you’ll find plenty of space for both solitude and community for your extended family or group. The home features all the amenities you could want including a full kitchen with two refrigerators and a dishwasher, comfortable beds and bedding, TV's, Blue Ray player and high-speed wireless internet. Relax on the spacious, covered, ocean side lanai for meals, reading, napping or just plain good conversation with family any time of the day. Particularly, stunning are the colorful sunsets over the Pacific. Winter months, enjoy the humpback whale show right out front.

Guest Reviews

“This property can only be described in superlatives: lovely, well appointed, convenient to important services and attended by an efficient and ever-present staff. We were a small group of four and the house can really absorb a much larger group but it was perfect for us in every respect. I cannot recommend this house highly enough - we have stayed in a large number of HomeAway places but this is one of the best we've had. Kudos to Mary Fox and her staff at 2Papayas for managing this beautiful place so well.”


“We booked this house for our annual family reunion of 3 families of 11 people and this house was perfect. It is situated on a wonderful stretch of ocean with natural tide pools, and a comfortable sea wall with sea turtles and other ocean life right on the other side of the wall. The house itself is large and very current and feels every bit like a luxurious beach house. There are many places to relax with your family and it never felt crowded. It is nicely appointed with linens, towels, kitchen items as well as beach items such as boogie boards, snorkeling gear and water shoes. Everyone agreed that the house itself was the highlight of our vacation.”


“The home was beautiful, and we could not have asked for a nicer setting. Coffee on the sea wall each morning with 5 turtles, 11 eels and the occasional humuhumunukunukuapua'a was such a treat. The property is well stocked and the 2 Papayas folks took great care of us. Loved it!”


“We absolutely love staying at this house in Puako. We have returned multiple times over the years and it remains our favorite vacation rental on the Big Island. The house is very comfortable and perfect for large families. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the bathrooms are well-stocked with amenities and plenty of towels. The kitchen has wonderful appliances and is very thoughtfully stocked with every utensil, pot, pan, bowl, sheet pan you could need. The laundry appliances are new and the laundry room is well-stocked; we also love using the clothesline outside to dry our clothes in the breeze. The lanai facing the ocean is a perfect spot for breakfast and has tons of seating.and a hammock for relaxing. Can you tell we love this house? A shout out to the housekeepers who keep everything spotless and who have always been incredibly kind and efficient. A big thank you to Marley and Crystal who were so helpful and promptly answered all of our questions during our stay. We look forward to returning again soon!”
