About Beth Kirwan

Beth and Dennis Kirwan, owners. Dennis and I grew up on the Mendocino Coast. I lived in Hawaii in the third grade. We currently live in Mendocino, CA. My father lives in Hawaii and is a coffee and mango farmer on the Big Island. We have two boys, Casey (21) who is a professional bull rider and lives in Texas and Blake (18), is a senior at Fort Bragg High School living with us. We also have two dogs, Daisy and Colton and a horse named Rooster!

Beth Kirwan purchased this House in 2002

Why Beth Kirwan chose Honaunau-Napoopoo

When we bought the property, it was all over grown with a rusty old car in the middle of the lot. We designed and built the Aloha House specifically as a vacation rental. We wanted to create a home to share that is comfortable for families to use as if it was their own.

What makes this House unique

The house is situated in a great little neighborhood. It is about a two minute walk to the Pacific Ocean (west of the house) and to Kealakekua Bay (North of the house). The location is a perfect home-base for exploring around the island. The house is beautiful, with its huge mahogany and glass doors that open up to the large lanai. Yet it is very comfortable. We built and furnished it for durability, so no one has to worry about anything.

                                                                  Fantastic House!

                                                                  Alecia W.

                                                                  We very much enjoyed our stay here. The deck was amazing, wrapping around the whole house with a huge table and comfy chairs to play cards in the evening. We ran out of propane, called and they were there immediately with another bottle so we could BBQ. We left doors open and clothes/snorkel gear out to dry and nobody bothered our things. Felt like a very safe neighborhood with a beach half a block away, plus a coffee farm and honey farm just up the road! Would definitely recommend this house.

                                                                  Comfortable, we'll equipped, lots of amenities.

At the end of a long adventurous day, it was so nice to enjoy the lanai, cook meals and relax together in a very beautiful setting. The access to Manini Beach was so nice. Overall, a wonderful experience. Thanks for offering your home to us. This was a dream visit for our whole family. 💖�

                                                                  Chritopher M.

From my spot in the loft I could see the Pacific out opposite windows. My grandchildren, as well as the rest of us, just loved the quietness and the little Manini Beach setting. We very much appreciated how attentive the Kirwan family was to make everything just right!

                                                                  Great location and perfect setup for our family vacation!

                                                                  Scott N.

You can see a bit of the ocean from the corner of one side of the porch, but you can hear it all day and night, which is great. We walked around the corner to kayak in the bay for some great snorkeling around Captain Cook's monument. Fairly quick access to south Kona and other beach and snorkeling areas. The 4th bedroom/bathroom is separate from the main house, so it is great for a large family or just some separation. We would definitely recommend this home!
