Luxury in Paradise
"The Dolphin house took our breath away at first sight. Our group of 14 fit comfortably with the main house and guest house. The grounds are immaculate, the house is perfect, but the view is unforgettable. The drive into Kona was not bad, and definitely worth the cooler evening temperatures. The small shops in town were great and the nearby grocery store very convenient. A great home base if you plan on traveling to the many activities around the island. Would definitely stay at the Dolphin House again!"

"We LOVED staying at Papalani Farm.. it was so much more than we expected.... the pictures don't do the property justice. There is so much variety on the farm... really fun gardens, fruit & nut trees, flowers, the food and fresh eggs from the chickens... The home was Peaceful, Clean, Spacious... we felt it was a great deal for the dollars spent. Nicely located for beaches, hiking, swimming with dolphins & going to the volcano. We hope to come back!
Nikki was a gracious hostess while giving us our space... I would highly recommend a massage from her too!"

"The view from this house during our stay was by far the best memory from our stay on the Big Island. Kayaking across to the Captain Cook Monument, snorkeling right off the rocks and playing in the tidepools with our young twins were just several of the many activities that we enjoyed. The neighborhood is quiet and everyone is very friendly. The house even includes a nice lawn to play on. The only drawback I can think of for the house is the drive from the main highway to the house itself which takes about 10 minutes each way (which isn't very much if you think about it). Once you get to the house and you see the sea right there, it makes it all worthwhile. Thank you to the owners and the rental agency, everyone was great and our family enjoyed our time at this amazing oceanfront home. Mahalo."
