First ask yourself the question- “what kind of traveler am I?” If your answer is that you need luxury accommodations on the beach with towel changes and beds made daily. Restaurants on site for quick dining and spa options with a workout room- then no, this is not the place for you. If your answer is that you are an... More

I am grateful to have been welcomed by Jeanette and Bob at their beautiful home. Jeanette made everything so easy, from booking the stay and offering directions to begin with. I spent wonderful 3 days at Papaya Paradise leaving the busy Waikiki. I felt like I was part of the family yet had my privacy as well. Being able to... More

Just spent 10 days at Papaya Paradise with Bob and Jeannette as hosts. They were so friendly and fun to talk to. Accommodations were really nice and private. It's really a short trip from there to the beach, or to town. The neighborhood is quiet and the pool is wonderful! We would definitely come back again and would recommend this... More

During our two weeks in the Hawaiian Islands, we stayed in 3 very different Bed and Breakfast places. The Papaya Paradise was our first stop. We were greeted like family by Jeanette and Bob and felt very welcome. Jeanette helped us plan our days so we could get the most out of each one. She was very helpful and suggested... More

Everything went well. We booked the dates and sent a deposit off in the mail and they received it very quickly. We went with our two teenage daughters and stayed 7 nights.
