About the Property
Charming and affordable, 30 steps from the ocean, perfect for families/groups
Nature and relaxation at its best. Wake up and go for a swim in the crystal clear waters of Kealakekua Bay, a natural and historical site and home to dolphins, whales, mantas and turtles. Or just relax, read and listen to the ocean all day and night long. Dolphin Dreams Kealakekua is actually a rental which we advertise on airbnb and vrbo, so if you want to see more pictures or read some of our reviews, check us out. We offer a cozy and spacious area decorated in an ocean theme with books, guides and maps of the Big Island. Nestled behind a tiny state lot, Dolphin Dreams is only 30 steps from the ocean. The rental is on the first floor of our home and is a completely separate unit with its own private entrance facing the ocean.
Dolphin Dreams comes with two bedrooms, the Whale Room and the Dolphin Room. The Whale room is the main bedroom and has cable TV, a queen bed and a twin bed. The Dolphin Room has two twin beds which can be joined to form a king bed. All beds are brand new. Both rooms are bright, airy and have ceiling fans. The Whale Room has a nice view of the bay (you can see the Captain Cook monument from your bed) while the Dolphin Room looks out on the garden. A futon can be added for more guests. There is a bathroom with hot shower, as well as an outside wash area with an outdoor shower to rinse off. The laundry area has a washing machine and a dryer. We provide biodegradable soaps and detergents. There is a spacious lanai (patio) with tables and chairs, a sofa and a reading chair where you can enjoy your meals or just hang out and do as the locals do, "talk story". Adjoining the lanai is a kitchen with all the appliances you need, including pots and pans, coffee machine, toaster, etc. There is free wifi and cable TV, as well as a complimentary bag of local coffee and a Weber grill for cookouts. We also have snorkeling gear and body boards for you to enjoy the bay. Contact us if you have any other questions. Our guests are our priority.

Getting here is quite easy. We assume you will be renting a car or coming here by car. From the Kona airport or if you are coming from the north, head south (turn right as you get to the highway leaving the airport). This is Mamalahoa Highway or Hawaii Belt Road. Just stay on the highway for about 30 minutes until you pass highway marker 111. After a Shell gas station on the left you will come to an intersection with traffic lights. Go straight on Napoopoo Road, your gateway to paradise. When you get to a stop sign for the painted church (to the left), take a right and continue down the hill. When you get to the bottom of the road you will see the bay directly in front of you. Take a left and we are the fifth house on the oceanside, just after a small church and past a house with a beautiful brass and metal entrance gate with turtles. We have purple, green and blue steps on the side of the house.
About the owner: Cindy was a state prosecutor and John was a photojournalist and documentary film maker in Rio de Janeiro before deciding to say Bye Bye Brazil and Aloha Hawaii. The ocean is our passion. Cindy is a rescue diver and loves to scuba, paddle, swim, surf and snorkel, and John is an avid surfer/stand up/snorkeler; both share a love for nature, especially dolphins, whales and dogs. We have three very friendly and well-behaved dogs which we keep separated from our guests (unless the guests request their company).
Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
Dolphin Dreams is only 30 steps from the bay. We rent out our downstairs unit, which is comfortable, clean and cozy. The rooms are bright and airy. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The lanai (patio) is spacious and relaxing. We think we give our guests a great place and at a very reasonable price. Quality, friendly, and not pricey.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dolphin Dreams has the comforts of a nice hotel: wifi, cable tv, nice quality beds and pillows. And you are only 30 steps from the ocean, the famous Kealakekua Bay where James Cook sailed into Hawaii. The waters of Kealakekua Bay are teeming with ocean life such as dolphins, whales (during the winter), turtles and a myriad of reef fish and even mantas. Many consider it one of the best snorkeling spots in Hawaii.
