Recent Kealakekua Bay reviews

  • Perfect. Exactly what we were looking for

    "We stayed here this weekend. Perfectly located to enjoy south kona/Kau, north kona, and at the same time near Kealakekua bay. The 2nd story is spacious - a big living room and 2 nicely sized rooms. Comfy firm beds, fresh fruit (plentiful tangelos to make amazing fresh juice, papaya, tangerines, and bananas); it is simple quiet living with all the amenities we needed. Definitely staying here next time I visit West Hawaii Island."

  • Great value and great location

    "We stayed at this property for 7 Days and would have gladly stayed for longer. Carol, the Owner was an excellent communicator and displayed a genuine interest in ensuring her guests had a good stay. Evonne and Ernie the caretakers were friendly and helpful and at the same time created an atmosphere where they did not intrude on our privacy. The larger unit was clean and spacious for the two of us and we did not need to use the air conditioner as airflow was very good. Our bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space for our clothes etc. Internet was wireless and hassle free and I loved the small tv (which remained off) ...if you have nothing better to do than watch tv at this great spot you need your head read! Shower and bathroom facilities were clean and the second outside shower with hot water was awesome and private after walking back from a swim in the bay. Tha kitchen was functional with plenty of cooking equipment and a large gas oven. There was food, sauces, spices etc that had been left by previous guests that were appreciated. There were two BBQs in the back yard and an outside eating area as well as a very private undercover outside eating area. The neighbourhood was quiet and the local people were friendly and happy to help with advice re places to see and things to do. Keep an eye out for the two very friendly next door dogs who are worth stopping for! There are mongoose (or is that mongeese) in the back yard that are fascinating to watch and plenty of birds visit the yard too. We came mainly to snorkel and enjoy the bay and Carols house provided the perfect affordable base. The snorkelling in Kealakekua Bay is excellent and Spinner dolphins visited the bay most days. On our last day a whale and calf entered the bay in the morning too. If you visit please try and hire kayaks from local people if you can. Ernie and Evonne can provide advice re local attractions as we'll. We can recommend this place to anyone wishing to experience this beautiful bay and we hope to return for more!"

  • Our own private resort

    "We wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'Okika Lani. What a beautiful house and location. A real gem! We had a wonderful stay and are so glad we chose it...the pictures don't do it justice. It's location is not only beautiful but feels private making it quiet and relaxing. The home is well cared for with it's comfy furniture and beds and the wonderful artwork. Between the beautiful landscaping, abundant wildlife and views of Kealakekua Bay, we felt as if we were in our own private resort. We loved dipping into the pool, snorkeling in the Bay and at Two Step. We actually got to swim with dolphins several times. The only bad thing about 'Okika Lani is having to leave! We definitely hope to return for another stay!"

  • Whales and Dolphins

    "We had a great time at the Pagoda House. Things you might like to know: 1. The house is huge. You will have all the room you need. 2. There are bugs because the front side of the house is all screens. It is like you are in a huge lanai. People will either like this, or not, because of the indoor bugs and geckos. We liked it. Sort of like glamping (glamorous camping). 3. The bay is right there. Like others, we rented sea kayaks and not only saw dolphins, but also whales. There is a little place where you can rent kayaks just to the south. Take the second road to your right. We were the first ones out in the morning and were able to paddle up near the humpback whales. They did a deep dive and showed us their tails just like in the pictures. Very cool and only $50 per double kayak. We did the snorkeling and the dolphins that day, too. 4. The big cane spiders are harmless but scary looking. We had three show up in the various bedrooms. 5. The last miles to the house are via a very curvy road. It was a bit of a chore to drive that road. 6. The noises we heard at night and early dawn included dogs barking, feral cats fighting, roosters crowing, and birds at dawn. Some of these were not a problem, but others we could have done without. You can't shut these noises out because the windows are screens. 7. The owners provided a huge gift basket for us upon arrival. We really appreciated that. 8. The owners request that you don't move the furniture, however it was March and the NCAA basketball tournament was being played. There were times that we wanted to watch TV. Unfortunately, the TV is at the end of a long room and the couch and chairs were lined up against the walls facing at right angles to the TV. It was impossible to watch the TV without cranking your neck. 9. You are on an island without garbage pickup. You have to take your garbage to the transfer station on a day near your departure. 10. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. 11. We really enjoyed the pool and the area around it. The pool was great. 12. The bay near the house is pretty rocky at the edges. Good for snorkeling, but not great access for snorkeling. We found a little beach down the first road to the west heading south. You access it between a house and a concrete pad. There, you can safely get into the bay for snorkeling or swimming. Picnic tables and grass is there too."

Kealakekua Bay Travel Tips

Step into History's Footprints With Kealakekua Bay Vacation Rentals

When you stay at Kealakekua Bay vacation rentals, you are experiencing the same place Captain Cook discovered in 1779. The bay was the point where Captain Cook entered the sheltered water of the Big Island. At the foot of the Pathway of the Gods, you can follow the rugged trail to the monument dedicated to Captain Cook. Depending on your vacation rental's location, you might see views of the cliff and the monument from the comfort of your living room.

Visit Coffee Country Near Kealakekua Bay Resort Rentals

Some of the attractions near Kealakekua Bay resort rentals are Hawaiian coffee farms, where locals grow and process the beans. Some farms like the Greenwell Farms have been making gourmet coffee since the second half of the 1800s. Plan a tour early in your stay and then enjoy a fresh pot each morning as you watch the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean. The drink goes well with fresh tropical fruit, and you can find a variety of local ones at a nearby farmer's market. Your fully equipped kitchen will make it easy to prepare breakfast or snacks for later in the day.

Pick Kona Coast Condos for Home-Like Amenities

Kona Coast condos offer you many of the comforts of your home, including a living room where you can watch TV or play games, multiple bedrooms so you can have some privacy, and a place to prepare meals. If you feel like dining out, you'll have your choice of restaurants. Purchase organic veggies or food from one of the local health stores—having a fridge will keep your products fresh and ready to use. From the privacy of your lanai, balcony, or yard you can watch the sun set and spend an evening enjoying the stars.
