"This is a great place to stay on the Kona side. We loved having our own cabins, and the kitchen was a great place to take in the view. The owners have provided everything you could possibly think of needing...right down to the aloe I needed after my sunburn! The kitchen and rooms are well-equipped, exceptionally clean, airy, and very restful. If you stay here, be sure to go to Gypsea Gelato for the best gelato EVER, and also check out Annie's Burgers (I'm a vegetarian, and the taro burger was awesome!). This location offers peace and privacy, plenty of space, a great view, and everything you could need. I highly recommend them!"

Clean, well equipped & 30 second walk to Manini Beach
"Our family had an amazing stay at the Dolphin house. The caretaker was so thoughtful meeting us there later at night. The house had everything we needed & more - snorkel equipment, water shoes, boogie boards, etc ! The 30 second walk to Manini beach was so convenient and the water clear with awesome snorkeling. The "auntie" caretaker at the beach was so nice and full of stories! We found that we did have to drive further than expected when we had other activities that we needed to get to but this does not seem too unusual for the Big Island."

"We stayed for 9 days at this little piece of heaven cottage on the cliff side. It was about 20 miles south of Kona. There are several grocery stores nearby as well as gas stations, coffee cafes and restaurants. The hosts provide lawn chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie board and lunch cooler which is very convenient for road trips or beach days. Step 2 beach is a 15 minute drive away for great snorkeling. The cottage has a full kitchen with a great countertop for eating, ceiling fans for circulating the beautiful breezes and enough seclusion on the property for adequate privacy. The morning visits from the hosts' dogs were lovely, very calm pets. Enjoy the ocean views and the beautiful tropical foliage from the attached tiki deck. Everyone will love this little gem and we look forward to another visit."

"I can't imagine that you would ever find a better rental at this price. A short walk to the bay, short drive to Two Steps. A great location to explore this part of the island. I know for certain that you won't find a more accommodating, kind, generous host than Kay at any price!! Your cookies are incredible. The thanks so much for letting us stay."
