About JONATHON KAY
We have always been enchanted with life under the sea and were drawn to this magical area to swim with the dolphins, communicate with them, and live in harmony with nature. We work as documentary filmmakers making films that have a positive message to humanity and encourage the conservation of the dolphins & the whales, and the oceans and rivers of our planet.
JONATHON KAY purchased this House in 2013
Why JONATHON KAY chose Honaunau-Napoopoo
We had always dreamed of owning a property with acreage in this area. We were drawn to this area due to our love of the dolphins. To us this is the most beautiful area in the world to live where we can experience wild dolphins each month of our lives and enjoy the peace and tranquility of living immersed in nature. This property especially called out to us as it is a natural 'Shangri-La' rich with the magical views of the ocean, fantastic orange sunsets that are out of this world, coconut palms producing coconuts that you can drink the milk from while enjoying the sunsets, star-fruit trees, mangos, avocados, mac nut trees, and much much more!
What makes this House unique
The large wrap around lanai (wooden deck) providing enchanting panoramic views of the ocean is one of our favorite features of the DOLPHIN DREAM HOUSE. We had glass panels and beautiful wood railings installed on the deck and it is our favorite place to enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners, margaritas, fine wine and romantic evenings. We also love it that you can wake up and see Plumeria flower blossoms in the trees from the bedrooms and hear the sweet sounds of birds singing, and can walk out on the grounds and pick avocados or starfruit which are so juicy and so delicious. Being only a five minute drive from the beaches where we go swimming with wild dolphins is Awesome!~

Fantastic stay at the Dolphin dream house
I stayed in this fantastic dolphin house for a week The house is very well located On exquisite acreage in the beautiful countryside of Captain Cook. As soon as we entered the property we felt surrounded by nature .There are many trees and gorgeous Hawaiian flowers . . We feel in harmony with the nature. The place is very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed it a lot. The house is very clean and there is a lot of windows. The place is very bright. There are many dolphin figurines in the house and the couch even hss dolphin patterned upholstery and we feel a nice warmth. I also enjoyed the dinners on the big deck with a super amazing view of the ocean .., it is very intimate. We loved the view of the lush tropical greenery and the water. The yard is filled with fruit trees. I really enjoyed my stay here and recommend it for everyone. I intend to return during my next vacation on this island!
Amazing views and privacy combined with friendly owner overcome minor issues to create good value.
The dolphin house was a pleasure to stay at. The views are amazing of the ocean, palm trees, and nature below. We could see Captain Cook's monument and spotted a whale one day. The driveway should eventually be paved as it is very bumpy. We had an SUV and it was OK, but really wouldn't want to park at above spot. John gave some great tips on seeing dolphins and where to snorkel, and you could tell he is a big enthusiast. The house had a 60's beach house vibe and you have to kind of feel that. The house needed paint on the inside and some new cabinets. There have been some big fixes already. You could tell the kitchen and bathroom sinks were new. John is working on making this a great place, but you do give a little verse say a new condo that has boogie boards, snorkel, mask, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, new beds, etc. You won't get the views and privacy of this place for anywhere near the price if you were renting a brand new place. We had some great dinners on the lanai overlooking painting worthy views with no other people in sight. The juke box was fun. The water pressure in the shower was great. We had 4 people as 2 backed out. It would be a real stretch to have 10 stay here w/ the 2 baths. I would say 6 would probably max a comfortable stay. All of the appliances worked. The beds were a little stiff, but comfortable enough to sleep. Overall, I would recommend this place if like me, you value great Hawaii views, privacy and feel over luxury and new toys.
I stayed at Dolphin dream house, and i loved it! First of all, I liked the drive way to the house because there were many plants and I thought I arrived in the tropical world!!
And house was clean so I felt relaxed. From the Deck, I could see the beautiful view(nature and sea). I never got bored of that. It was peaceful place where nobody’s around. I loved it so much! If you want to have a relaxing time in the nature, I highly recommend this place for your stay!
Amazing Dolphin Dream Vacation!
The Dolphin Dream House is a magical home. A serene beautiful getaway where we were able to totally relax for a week of fun, relaxation, swimming with dolphins, turtles and wonderful life under the sea.
We are artists and this beautiful home is perfect for creativity and inspiration. The views of the ocean are exceptional and there was an exquisite sunset every day we were here. The beds were super comfortable, the kitchen was immaculate as was the living room and lanai. There were plenty of wine glasses, drink glasses, new plates, new dishes, new stainless steel pots and pans and it was a pleasure to be living at this beautiful house. We hope to come back again soon!
The dolphin dream house was great; it has a wonderful view, very clean and super comfortable. Plus you're a close to so many amazing beaches where you can swim with dolphins! Very magical experience. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful magical place!
Wow - I can’t believe to stay at such a magical place!
The DOLPHIN DREAM HOUSE is a place where is kind of a meditative atmosphere. While you are sitting, eating breakfast, you hear the sound of the jungle.
Beside the wonderful, clean house (with many dolphin statues!) you can reach the sea so fastly! It’s such a dream to swim and snorkeling at the Kealakekua Bay! We did see dolphins and wales!!!
I‘m looking forward so much to come back again!
From the DOLPHIN DREAM HOUSE you are minutes from the lovely Ho'okena Beach State Park for a beach vacation of sunbathing and swimming with dolphins, or visiting the famous Place of Refuge National Historic Park, a preservation of ancient Hawaiian culture.
Also at the Honaunau Inlet you will snorkel with an endless variety of tropical fish and sea turtles. A ninety-minute drive south will bring you to Volcano National Park. Thirty minutes north are the shops and fine restaurants of Kailua.
Along the main highway north you will pass shops offering the island's best buys for Kona Coffee and Macadamia Nuts. A fruit stand offering organically grown fruits and vegetable is less than one mile north. The Kealia village store with necessities and movie rentals is a short walk to the south.
