Kealakekua Bay house description

Dolphin Bay House, a convenient, spacious and gorgeous Hawaiian vacation home has 3 beautiful bedrooms and 3 stunning bathrooms. Next to Dolphin Bay House is the lovely 1 bedroom Dolphin Bay Cottage, which comfortably accommodates 2 guests. The house and the cottage can be rented together or separately. For information about our Dolphin Bay Cottage please visit our VRBO listing #364569. They are centrally located to many of the best island attractions. Best of all they are situated only 300 feet from famed Kealakekua Bay, Manini Beach Park and some of the world's most pristine waters! Come relax, enjoy family and friends, and swim in the crystal clear waters of Kealakekua Bay, practically at your doorstep.

Our home is located in the Hawaiian village of Napo`opo`o. This area of the Big Island, strongly imbued with Hawaiian 'mana' (spirit), has retained the charm, quiet and easy pace of Old Hawaii. It is also a great location for a home base as you tour the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. An enchanting two minute walk to Kealakekua Bay, which means Pathway to the Gods, is a marine sanctuary that is home to pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, turtles and other amazing marine life. The snorkeling is some of the best in the world. Marvel at the dolphins and whales (in season). Admire the graceful green sea turtles and go nose to nose with a rainbow of exotic fish.

Dolphin Bay House is beautifully furnished in tropical style. Enjoy 3 lovely bedrooms with attached baths, in our two story home, where you will awaken refreshed to a chorus of birds and the sound of waves. For additional privacy 2 bedrooms are located on the second floor, and one on the first floor. There is a separate entrance and sitting area/twin bed for the first floor bedroom. Each bedroom has an attached bath with beautifully tiled, walk-in showers and a deep, soaking tub in the master bath. Granite countertops with two sinks in each of the upstairs baths add to the beauty and convenience. Many guests say 'the photos don't do it justice!'

The living room, dining room and lanai catch the tropical breezes, adding to the Hawaiian style relaxation experience. Relax on the lanai and watch as another spectacular Hawaiian sunset plays out before your eyes . . . truly a place to unwind and enjoy life! You will enjoy total privacy and use of the entire home while a guest with us. Plan to make Dolphin Bay House your home away from home. Dolphin Bay House accommodates from 2 - 7 guests in complete comfort.

If you need more room, consider Dolphin Bay Cottage which is on the same property and can be rented with Dolphin Bay House or separately. Dolphin Bay Cottage comfortably accommodates 1-2 guests (plus small child). This lovely cottage has everything you need: 1 bedroom, 1 full bath and a full kitchen. It is nestled next to Dolphin Bay House in our quiet, friendly neighborhood and is surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping. The decor is casual tropical style with bamboo floors and beautiful wood trim. A comfy queen bed with memory foam topper awaits you. The fully equipped kitchen has a full size fridge, dishwasher and four burner stove with oven-everything you need for cooking in paradise. All linens, beach towels, cable TV and wireless internet included. The cottage has it's own driveway and entrance. A very clean and pleasant place to while away the days.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We are pleased to share Dolphin Bay House and Dolphin Bay Cottage with you as we think you will enjoy the fabulous weather, beauty and this very special neighborhood as much as we do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kealakekua Bay:
                      After many years of enjoying the Kealakekua Bay area we were fortunate to find Dolphin Bay House and Cottage. We feel this corner of the world is truly paradise. This is a dream come true for us.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Hopping out of bed to take a sunrise walk to the beach- it is exhilarating. And then there are the sunset walks to cap off the day. Of course being able to easily snorkel anytime is also pretty fantastic!
