Property description

Beautiful Manini Point House is nestled between Kahauloa Cove and Manini Beach at Kealakekua Bay. The Hawaiian style architecture of this home, its full range of amenities, and its natural wood and stone create a feeling of comfortable luxury unique to vacation rentals, and will make your holiday feel very special. Spacious rooms and views of the ocean, landscape or mountains from each bedroom--you are surrounded by beauty.
Manini Point House is perfect for families, couples or friends. Sit at the beautiful koa wood bar or open the pocket doors to combine the large gourmet kitchen with the outdoor lanai and grill for a delicious cooking and dining experience. Take a moment to enjoy the Bali Hut and stretch out, breathe. You will be greeted with a selection of seasonal exotic Hawaiian fruits and Organic 100% Kona coffee, a gift to you from your hosts' Organic Coffee and Mango Farm. Guests of Manini Point House are invited to take a tour of Konacopia Farm.
Island furniture and artwork compliment the rooms. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and full bath. Lounge on the balcony from the upstairs bedroom suite and enjoy the ocean view, the sound of the surf, and watch the sunset.
K Bay is a marine sanctuary, home to spinner dolphins, beautiful fish and coral reefs and a resting spot for winter migrating whales. Take a kayaking tour, try a paddle board and hike or take a 'boat cruise' to Captain Cook monument where you can snorkel and see unusual fish and coral and perhaps swim with the dolphins!
Manini Point House's location offers a quick dip in the Pacific, easy walks through historical sites including Napoopoo Beach Park and Keei Beach--a locals favorite surfing spot with beautiful white sandy beach--without jumping in your car. Just 4 miles away is Puuhonua 'O Honaunau, Hawaii's National Park that is filled with legends of Old Hawaii. It offers hiking trails along the coast and picnic grounds. Two Step, adjacent to the park, is a favorite snorkeling spot. Just a 2 hours' drive away is Volcano National Park. Don't miss it! The guest book and our concierge will provide plenty of local know how and activities to fill your days. Arrange for a massage upon your return via a phone call to your hosts or postings in the guest book.
Enjoy a real Hawaiian experience. Experience our little village as well as the Big Island as a mix of local families and folks from around the world.
Come to Manini Point House! Enjoy the beauty of this unique vacation home, listen to the surf and feel the gentle ocean breeze. You will be glad you did.

There is plenty to do on the Big Island! You will love learning about Hawaiian culture by visiting Puuhonua O Honaunau, one of the many historical sites with hiking trails and a gorgeous picnic area, or hiking to Captain Cook monument. What can be more enjoyable than swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving, or horseback riding in Waimea or golfing in Kailua Kona, charter fishing, shopping for local organic produce at Farmers' Markets? Visit Volcano National Park, see the waterfalls on the windward side, hike on green and black sands beaches at South Point. Visit Mauna Kea observatory. Zipline in Hawi or Hilo! Take a walk on the wild side with a helicopter view of the Volcano flows, waterfalls, snow on Mauna Kea, undeveloped landscape--the Big Island's gorgeous scenery! Or relax at Manini Point House, sip a cup of organic Kona coffee and walk to the bay for a swim with the dolphins! You will know that you are in Paradise!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Steve and Elizabeth built Manini Point House in 2005 with the thought that we love the Big Island so much that we want to build a home where families will relax and enjoy precious moments together and know they are in a very special place. Our extended family often visits us in Hawaii and they look forward to their stay at Manini Point House. We live about 10 minutes away at Konacopia Organic Farm, and are happy to share this special place on a tour for our Manini Point House guests.

Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua Bay:
Manini Point House is just 300' from Manini Beach at Kealakekua Bay, a beautiful spot, and is located in a little village community. The neighborhood gives you an opportunity to visit with our friendly neighbors as well as folks visiting from around the world. Learn about the Hawaiian culture while visiting historical sites and 'talking story' with locals. If you are looking for an alternative to a generic engineered resort, Manini Point House offers the opportunity for an authentic Hawaiian experience in a historical part of the Big Island. K Bay is beautiful for snorkeling and swimming with reef fish, dolphins, and seasonal whales! Manini Beach is a relaxing, very special place to spend quality time alone or with family and friends. Manini Point House at K Bay is the place you will enjoy and remember, and know that you made the right choice.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This open, beautiful home has a large gourmet kitchen and lanai so families can cook, eat and relax together. Everyone will want to sit down to a meal on the lanai. The outside and inside join together. Enjoy the Bali Hut for a few contemplative moments and the outdoor shower after a day on the beach. Care for a game of pingpong?
