Recent Kealakekua Bay reviews

  • An enjoyable, relaxing, and positive experience

    "We were overall very pleased with the property. We have not always been so lucky, that is why I have no trouble writing a review of Dave and Beth's Hawaiian Hideaway! If it is important to you (as it is to me), the property is very clean and well stocked. I was surprised at all the details Beth has added to it, including helpful things, like chairs for the beach, ponchos for an afternoon rain, bandaids and other provisions for cuts, a thoughtful small library of interesting books and DVDs. We love to cook, and we managed to do quite a bit with the one burner and the BBQ outside, and the toaster oven. I looked forward to the delicious coffee from the french press each morning, and the peacefulness of the surroundings. My favorite time was at night when we went to sleep listening to the frogs and birds. I don't think I have ever slept so peacefully! I also want to mention that the property is a close drive to amazing snorkeling, and we enjoyed that pursuit each morning. We also had fun with the paddle boards. Next time we will try the kayaks! Most important, the owners, Dave and Beth, are friendly, helpful, and very easy to talk to. We really appreciated their hospitality and welcoming vibe. This is a place we would like to visit again. We already have very fond memories of our stay there. Thank you Beth and Dave!"

  • Great!

    "Spent 8 days on the Big Island and loved it! A big part of this was the location. Stacey's property was peaceful and quiet. Stacey was a great host with fresh fruit offerings including papaya, bananas, mango, and pineapple. Location was perfect for access to snorkeling at Two-Step and Kealakekua Bay (spinner dolphins). Also easy access to Highway 11 South which takes you to green and black sand beaches as well as Volcanoes National Park. Wonderful space to enjoy Hawaii!"

  • Awesome Stay here!

    "We were pleasantly surprised with these accommodations - they were all new and updated furnishings, the view was simply spectacular from the open window. The unit was extremely clean, and it was right next to the beach. One note of caution was the beach next door - while it was very nice my wife found out the hard way that one can be banged about on the rocks underneath if caught up in the surf on some days. That being said we had the best snorkelling on the island right in front of the room we stayed. Turtles and dolphins every day! We hope to return to this place if at all possible!"

  • Can't be beat!

    "This beautiful home is spacious, well-appointed and carefully maintained. The location is amazing, right on the water with gorgeous sunset views! The property is large and very peaceful with beautiful foliage. The jacuzzi and outdoor lava rock shower make it a true paradise. I loved drifting to sleep each night to the sound of the waves. Included in the rental was access to kayaks and the boat launch located just two houses away. We had such an amazing time kayaking out to the spinner dolphins each morning and hopping in for the most exceptional experience! The snorkeling at the monument is world class. Also just 4 miles down the road is The City of Refuge "two step" which had great snorkeling as well. Our family ranged from our little kids (age 3 & 5), to our teenagers (15 & 18) and my in-laws in their 70's. Everyone had a great time. There is truly something for everyone here. We will definitely be visiting the Dolphin Retreat again as soon as we can. There is something magical about this place!"
