About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Kealakekua Bay (which means Pathway to the Gods) has one of the Big Island's most spectacular coral reefs. Because it is a Marine Life Sanctuary, the fish are plentiful and swarm over the well developed reef that slopes from the shores into the ocean. Spinner dolphins, Manta Rays, and Green Sea turtles are commonly seen resting in the Bay. Humpback Whales visit in the winter season from January to March. The reefs make this area an underwater showcase, so come enjoy a swim or snorkel, and dive into some of the worlds most pristine waters, all well within walking distance from the house. Often there is an opportunity to swim with the plentiful spinner dolphins, right in the bay.

Enjoy the peacefulness, beauty, and spirit of old Hawaii when you visit this vacation rental home at Kealakekua Bay. Get away from the crowds and traffic in Kailua-Kona town.

This well equipped home has everything needed for a comfortable stay from a week or two to a month or more. Fully furnished, 2 bedroom with 1 1/2 baths, fruit trees and garden, and cooking utensils, and laundry facility. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the tranquility of old Hawaii. Call Kay for reservations or information and when you leave a message, please also give your time zone and best time to call. With our low rates, you can enjoy more activities and still have a great place to stay. Local fruits provided when in season. Bonus: Upon your arrival, you are provided a supply of Kona Coffee, Juice, Milk, Bread, Jams, Eggs, and some local snacks.

Perfect location! Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

One block away from the best snorkeling on the Big Island! We stayed at Kay's rental apartment for 4 nights, every morning we could pick the delicious star fruits and tangerines from the garden for breakfast, and then walk tot he Kayak rental place down the street and paddle to Captain Cook's monument for some quiet snorkeling before the big tour groups arrive. Being able to beat the crowd in the morning and enjoy captain cook bay snorkeling was priceless. It gets really crowded there after 10am. Another great snorkeling spot, 2 steps, is only 4 miles away. Kay's rental apartment has everything you need for a comfy vacation stay. Chain grocery stores and Walmart are 25 mins away. Far enough to avoid the traffic (yes, there were congested traffic close to Kona) but very convenient. You will not find a better rental at this price range.

Owner's Response: Thank you VRBO that you are able to provide wonderful people to enjoy Hawaiian vacation at a reasonable accomodation. There are no Hotels in this ancient Hawaiian Village , filled with History and the first white man contacts with the Hawaiians. The ocean is nice for adults and children and this place is zoned conservation so there won't be any development for many years to come. It is as original as one sees as what Hawaii used to be like. Hope many more will come to truly experience the Aloha found in Hawaii. Kay Wilson 808-328-9373

perfect place to stay at Manini

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks here and were very pleased with the proximity to Manini beach, and also how comfortable and well equipped the place was. Kay was particularly attentive to our needs and we thoroughly enjoyed the homemade cakes she gave us! Would definitely stay again.

Plenty Aloha!

  • 5 of 5

Felt right at home. Wish I was still there.

Loved walking down to the ocean for sunrise. One of my favorite sacred places in the world, and Kona Kay's makes it affordable for us to experience. Mahalo Kay,

Just what we were looking for

We were looking for a quiet place, away from the main touristy areas. Kay was there to welcome us, and we had everything we needed.
