We thoroughly enjoyed our late November stay in the poolside end (king) room at the Papaya Paradise. This is a legal Bed and Breakfast, unlike most on the island. As other guests have noted, Jeanette and Bob are a very welcoming older couple, their resident kitty a little shy. They are long time residents, know Oahu well, and Jeanette is...

Jeannette and Bob (Curly) made us feel completely at home; the room was great (comfy bed; air conditioning; large bathroom with shower; french doors with view of pool). We had the use of a refrigerator and kitchen area, and the cereal/toast/bagels for breakfast were a nice touch. We would certainly stay here again!

Very nice in all respects, and Jeannette the owner is ever so nice. EXCEPT that the protocol for breakfasting is "wash your own dishes and put them away." So you never know how thoroughly the last guest washed his dishes. Also, Bob, nice as he is, has early stage dementia and shuffles around the premises at all hours -- you...

Aloha, I'm sorry you did not understand our original statement that breakfast was self-catered (which included "washing, drying your dishes and putting them away"). I wish you had mentioned your concerns when you were here so we could have made other arrangements for you. Bob is an early to bed and early to rise person, so does wander around early...

We stayed at Papaya Paradise for 5 days in January. It is such a beautiful place, so calm and yet to so close to everything. It is luxurious to have a pool in this lush garden setting. Our hosts were warm, welcoming and Friendly. Wish we could have stayed there longer! We will be back for sure.

I spent 4 days with my wife at Papaya Paradise. Bob and Jeanette who own the place are lovely. It is a simple setup but perfect for a peaceful vacation. I strongly recommend the place and I would definitively come back.
