Property description

Enter this gracious open-plan home and have your breath taken away. Even as the front door opens, you will find yourself delivered to - and surrounded by - the beauty, serenity and spiritual power of Kealakekua Bay.

Legally operating Vacation Rental
GET/TAT W30256416-02 (State required information)

EVERY ROOM (except baths) has a direct oceanfront view.

The water lapping at the back yard's rocks, is clear, cool and sparkling with sunlight. The awesome, cave pocked cliff that makes up the opposite shore, is known as 'The Pali'. The trail along the ridge of the Pali, was to the Hawaiians known as 'the pathway of the gods', or 'Kealakekua' in Hawaiian. At the pali's base the Captain Cook Monument and a small plaque mark the spot where Cook fell-- near a flashing beacon for modern nighttime mariners.

Dump your bags, and grab a deck chair and a glass of wine, in time to watch the sun create it's fiery farewell across the magical water as millions of stars come aglow. Be prepared to share the sunset with dolphins and whales in this most unique and beautiful corner of the planet.

Relax as you breathe in the aura of your private refuge for the most memorable vacation you'll ever have. Generous rooms, all with ocean view (except baths), outdoor eating pavilion, pool and deck - and, of course, the bay.

Prepare fresh and flavorful meals of local fish, tropical fruit, organic veggies, and Kona cofee-- all in a truly state-of-the-art kitchen with ocean views! (Induction cooktop, double oven, 2 sinks all swathed in 'green bamboo' granite).

All of this on a private, gated lane of 8 residences (some are estates with more than one home)

Please be aware that our home includes a swimming pool (not fenced or otherwise separated from the house itself) and about 100 feet of shoreline cliff (there is a large grass lawn between the house/pool/deck and the shoreline cliff).
Both the shoreline and the pool present obvious hazards to children, elderly persons or anyone with vision, mobility or other impairment. Access to the sea/bay is not permitted from our property, and entering the shoreline area (lava rock) is not permitted. You must contain your activities within the house/pool/deck/lawn area only. The pool presents obvious hazards to any non-swimmers or persons who may fall into it. Our home is not recommended for groups with children, elderly, impaired/disabled or non-swimming members.



Although many couples have been married here, we no longer permit weddings (or other gatherings of more than 12 people) out of respect for our neighbors.

Car: Necessary

Kealakekua Bay is a marine preserve and one of the state's best snorkeling locations. Dolphins visit as do whales, in season.

Tour boats (The Fairwind, BodyGlove and others) transport visitors to the Captain Cook Monument, or you can hike to the monument. The snorkeling at the monument is wonderful, as it is around most of the bay. The Wharf, Manini Beach and Napoopoo 'Beach' (not much sand!) are entry points for swimming.

(NOTE: As of 1/1/13 kayaking and other commercial activity is prohibited from the Kealakekua Bay wharf and Manini Beach. Kayaking may not be possible in the bay due to changing and welcome oversight by the State. Tour boats are still bringing snorkelers to the Captain Cook Monument from Keauhou and Kailua). The bay is better than ever for SWIMMING!
