Whale's Tail

Guest Rating:

Sleeps 8, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

69-1612 Puako Beach Drive (#2) Kamuela, HI 96743 United States

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.

    We very much enjoyed our week! The home is large, clean, and well-stocked. Mary even helped to arrange grocery delivery so we could hit the ground running after arriving in the evening. We enjoyed being right on the water and heading out for adventures. We would love to return!

    Anne K recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first trip in two years. Normally we have traveled all the time up until covid. So lots of barriers to break through, from airports, planes, etc. Returning to Puako was a dream come much so we're coming back. What an amazing way to re-enter the world-at-large. The Big Island is unsurpassed and the perfect place to re-enter with extended family. Perfect house for multi generations.

    We have stayed here for years, and it is the high point of our year! Best location because of the beach and whale watching from the lanai.

    Ron G from Emerald Hills, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed here three times and it is one of our favorite places to come back to. I am truly torn about leaving an honest review because we feel like this place is our little secret, but the people here have been so good to use over the years that I feel I owe it to them. The house is immaculate, the staff is wonderful, and the location can't be beat. The only down side is that it is pretty far from civilization. There is a little general store within five minutes walk but the nearest real grocery store is a fifteen minute drive. But if you're looking for a quiet place to get away from it all, you can't beat the Whale's Tail.

    Fabulous, comfortable, spacious house in a great location if you like to be away from resort madness. Very well equipped. Great swimming. Decent snorkeling if you find the right spots. We can't wait to come back.

    The home was immaculate, well stocked and very well organized. The beach was wonderful - swimmable, sandy and very quiet. The property management company was top notch - very professional and very responsive. The home is even better in person that the pictures can show.

    Susan S from Sacramento , CA recommends this vacation rental

    Am hesitant to share as I don’t want the house to become so popular that’s it’s not available to rent next year! Large, clean, well stocked comfortable home with incredible views. Dream vacation in a perfect rental. 2 Papayas were amazing to deal with. Very accommodating and available. Little welcome treats were really appreciated!

    • Manager Responded on 8/3/2021

      Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is hard to not want to keep the homes and area a well kept secret but thank you for sharing your experience so others can also enjoy a dream vacation. We hope you can return soon!

    Mary and the 2 Papayas team are the best. The house is our favorite in Puako. Lots of room, clean, light filled and you have a front row seat to Puako Bay. Steps to a swim or paddle. We are already planning for our return visit.

    a guest from San Bruno, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The house is located in Puako Area, which is a beautiful oceanfront community yet still gives you a little bit of local feel. A nice sandy beach is right in front of the house, which is rare in this area. About 100 ft front or to the right there are great snorkeling spots. The house is equipped with updated appliances and great insulation. The A/C is super powerful but we enjoy the nice ocean breeze during the early morning.
