  • Mele Kalikimaka from Hale Pahukoa

    "Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our daughter graduated from University of Hawaii in Hilo and we decided it was an ideal time to for a Hawaiian Christmas. I think we have a new tradition! It was the perfect way to spend the holidays with family and Hale Pahukoa was a great place to stay. We loved having a pool AND beach access. We were a little worried that "retro or vintage" could mean old, outdated, or dumpy but not the case here. We found that the house was "as described" and we were not disappointed. It was clean and had all we needed for our stay. I recommend a quick call to the management company before arrival to ensure they have your name at the gate and the pool has had a recent cleaning. We had to wait at the gate for about an hour because security did not have our name and they had to get it all sorted before we were allowed entry. I would not have even mentioned this but I understand this was not a "one-time" incident. Can't beat the location, close to town and on the water. We especially enjoyed the lanai. We will do it again!"

  • Great vacation rental home in Kona

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The home was perfect for our party of seven. One is a 3 year old. The location is so close to the water & the closest beach is just right for young children. The pool was much appreciated as weather was warm & humid. The kitchen is well equiped and the two lanais are so nice in morning & evening. Bedrooms very comfortable and lower level has big screen for a few football games. We walked to town for shopping & luau."

  • Pretty Amazing.....

    "Having visited the Big Island over fifty times, my wife and I like to think of ourselves as experienced in what to do and where to stay. We’ve stayed at all the major resorts up and down the Kona Coast, as well as many vacation rentals throughout the island. This house has many amazing features, but he best one is probably the location. We would venture to stay that this may be the best overall location on the entire island - close enough to walk into the hub of Kailua-Kona, yet peaceful, quiet, and secluded beyond words. It’s located in Kona Bay Estates, a gated community with 24-hour patrolled security. Check it out on Google Earth. Sitting on the pool-deck with a glass of wine is escapism like no other - close enough to the ocean to feel the spray of waves crashing against the lava, daily pods of dolphins traversing the coastline, in-season humpback whales that sometimes breach so close that the sound is deafening. You even have your own personal lava “blowhole” next to the pool, putting on a show when the surf is up. Plus, the enjoyment of your own pool and spa makes one wonder why you’d ever want to leave the property. Upon entering the home, you immediately know you’re somewhere unique, with a courtyard that is a tropical paradise of lush greenery, a lava waterfall and a walkway over koi ponds with fish to greet you on every arrival. Talk about good “chi”. Moving on into the house you’ll find two huge master suites (one overlooking the Pacific), a homey koa-wood kitchen, large living and dining rooms. Most walls of the home fully retract, leaving one with the feeling of open-air living. Tradewinds off the ocean flow throughout the entire home. The kitchen is fully equipped - we like to take a couple of hours to prepare a gourmet dinner, usually fresh fish on the barbecue, or prepare breakfast (with mimosas!) to enjoy before some suntanning and chilling out around the pool. In a word, this place is special."

  • 50th Anniversary + The Dolphin House = PERFECT VACATION

    "After 9 wonderful nights at the Dolphin House, our whole family is rethinking our idea of a dream vacation! What an experience! Not only is the location beautiful and private, the house itself is absolutely perfect for almost any group of people. Our group of 9 ran the gamut from infant to senior citizens, yet we were accommodated with ease and complete comfort. The kitchen and bar are amazingly well equipped, and the sleeping areas are private and quiet. The rolling walls create the perfect island ambiance, and the outdoor dining area with it's huge table is terrific. It was fortunate that this was not our first trip to the Big Island, because we really didn't want to leave the house! In addition, it's hard to say enough about the service provided by Nicole and Greg. Every question or concern that we had during the entire process was answered with "I'll take care of it" - and they did! This entire experience has made our 50th wedding anniversary one of our most treasured memories."
