********************HAWAII TAX I.D. NO W52008989-01****************************
The Dolphin Cottage is cute, clean & cozy - yet spacious cottage w/ AC - with a fantastic ocean view!
This cottage is located in the beautiful ocean side community of Kehena, which is a coastal strip close to Volcanoes Nat'l Park (50 min), warm ponds, tide pools, and black sand beaches.
The Dolphin Cottage is located in a beautiful tropical area and has an ocean view from every room in the house. You get Wi-Fi internet, Direct TV, phone w/ free long distance to the mainland and Canada !
This Dolphin is across the street from a small black sand beach where dolphins are often the name. The beach is down a trail across the street. Please note: the beach is not wheelchair accessible and bathing suit optional.
Little Kehena is a prime location (natural Hawaii) and has been the best kept secret on the island for years. It is now becoming more popular and visitors are returning. This area is a major contrast to Kona, which is known as a tourist hot spot. So, if you want a quiet, peaceful place and want to see 'real Hawaii' - this is the place for you!
It is also near the active lava flow and Volcanoes National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance from us. There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geo-thermically heated ponds, snorkeling w/ spinner dolphins and the whales that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska in winter months. You can often see breaching whales out in the water from our lanai, just several yards off our beautiful coast . Many of my tenants have told me that they were able to swim w/ the spinner dolphins as well - and you can too at the world famous 'Kehena Black Sand Beach' !
This is the place for water lovers and people who want to get away from the crowds of tourists in other parts of the island.
From your lanai, you will see coconut trees swaying w/ the trade winds against a blue pacific ocean .
We also have the best and safest snorkeling grounds just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools? You can easily navigate all of these places from our cottage at Kehena Beach, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'.
For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time.
The cottage looks small but actually is spacious and is a comfortable . The high ceiling cottage has one bedroom w/ queen bed, full bath, living/dining area and 'food prep area' including refrigerator, sink & utensils.. PLEASE NOTE that access to 'MW and toaster oven are outside of unit' - in utility room - 15 feet away.
There is also a (shared) Hawaiian rock BBQ w/ sink & utensils just outside which is situated in a tropical garden w/ ocean view.
It can't get much better than this. We have a laundry room as well and soap is included .
It can sleep up to 4 w/ sofa bed (firm) or full sized Futon - your choice.
This cottage is just 8 miles from Pohoiki Point (surfing area) and the famous Kapoho snorkeling waters are also near by and remain popular snorkeling, surfing and swimming areas. Compare our rates to those in Kapoho - you will love our place.
Kilauea Volcano is just a 45-60 minute drive where you can walk through Thurstons Lava Tube and look in to Kilauea Caldera.
You will love Kehena in the Puna District of Hawaii.
