Kealakekua Bay house description

This oceanfront home is named Kaikanani (the beautiful sea) and is located on the water's edge at the historic Kealakekua Bay. You are literally next to the ocean from every room. The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and very comfortably accommodates six people with two king beds and two twin beds. The home was renovated after being devastated by the March, 2011 Japan tidal wave.

Kealakekua Bay is a protected marine sanctuary and is an excellent place to snorkel, dive and kayak. Access to the ocean is next door at Manini Beach. The bay is filled with a variety of marine life- colorful tropical fish and beautiful coral. Dolphins and whales (in season) can be seen directly from the lanai! There is exceptional snorkeling right in front of the house in the clean, clear, and usually very calm water. Ocean water temperature averages in the mid 70 degree F.

This historic bay is where Captain James Cook first landed in Hawaii in 1778 and was killed on his return to Kealakekua a year later. Kealakekua is also the site of Hiki'au Heiau. The federal park Pu'uhonua O Honaunau, the Hawaiian's ancient City of Refuge, is a short drive (3.5m) to the south.

While at Kaikanani, be prepared to relax and experience the laid-back life-style of old Hawaii– no high rises or city noise here! Kealakekua Bay's village, Napo'opo'o, remains the sleepy village of yesterday. The only sounds you will hear will be the ocean rolling onto the shore. Hele mai! Come experience Kaikanani – once you do, you will want to return again and again.

          Visit nearby Honaunau, The City of Refuge (3.5miles to the south)

Choice Mart is just south of the turndown road to the bay from the upper Mamalahoa Hwy. Also, there is a great restaurant that is also 10 minutes away called Keei Cafe.
