Combine the sandy beach next to your back yard with the thoughtfully placed windows that give you excellent views from nearly every spot in the house—upstairs and down—and you’ll love the Whale’s Tail for you Hawaii vacation. Not only is the entire ocean-facing wall built with windows, but also an additional row of large clerestory windows above them ensures that the second- floor loft space has ocean and sunset views. The décor throughout the home echoes the beach, ocean, sky and mountain environment: clean white walls, sandy shades of upholstery, blue-gray cabinetry and tiles of sand and sea colors. Original, local artwork—even in the bathrooms—adds to your sense of place in this very special corner of paradise. This home is 'hosted', with the family's residence also on property but the layout was designed for maximum privacy for both homes. Hawaii GE & TA tax number 097-892-3520-01

Guest Reviews

“Great beach access, fantastic air conditioning, quiet secluded location, excellent snorkeling and kayaking right at property, comfortable bedding, fluffy towels. Plenty of beach/water toys provided with unit: coolers, chairs, umbrella, sand mat, beach towels, snorkeling gear, reef shoes, sand toys. Several top-end restaurants and groceries within 15 minute drive. House was not lacking in any category, and we can be pretty picky. We will be returning.”


“This rental could not have been more perfect, from our own beach spot, to the lovely and large house to the quite neighborhood, not to mention the wonderful snorkeling out our back door! We vacationed with two other couples and this house was exactly what we had been hoping for! We also appreciated being able to do our laundry and having a lot of ingredients needed to cook with, plus the treats left by the staff. We love it!”


“We (3 couples) had a fantastic vacation at whale's end. The property is ideal. 3 bedrooms with baths and a lovely porch looking out on a practically private beach. Every necessity was taken provided. It was so wonderful to have such nice accommodations while we visited the Big Island. Close enough to lots of places to eat and explore and secluded enough to have a real get away vacation. Thank you!”


“Wow. I am having trouble finding the right words to accurately summarize my feelings about this property. Right from our booking through the end of our stay, Mary and her Two Papayas crew were so friendly, helpful, and fantastic to work with. Their Whale's Tail property was so gorgeous, the location just can't be beat. The house has a great layout that gives each guest their privacy, but has a great common area for everyone to gather, play games, have a meal, or sit and watch the sea turtles pop their heads up in the water just outside the door. We so enjoyed our time in Puako, it was far from the tourism of the bigger resorts, yet still just a 20 min car ride away from groceries, restaurants and activities. Anything you'd ever need is already stocked in the house, from kitchen supplies to beach gear and water shoes and sunscreen. We were traveling with our 2 year old son and found the house very family friendly. He especially appreciated the sand toys that were stocked in the garage. Just, wow! We'll definitely be returning to Whale's Tail for future family vacations!”
