Recent Kealakekua Bay reviews

  • Excellent

    "Rick's house on Kealakekua Bay is spacious and beautiful. It is well designed, immaculate and it has everything you need for a great vacation. The old school Hawaiian style beach is a short walk down the road for swimming and relaxing . The house has great views of the bay, sunsets, the surf and even the Captain Cook monument across the bay. The area is full of Hawaiian history and archaeological monuments. It is well located right next to the bay with a great market at the top of the hill and a couple quaint villages near by for dining. I would definitely go back here. Thanks Rick! It was an easy relaxing week!"

  • Beautiful house, amazing location!

    "I planned a surprise 40th birthday vacation for my husband this July 2016. We invited friends and family to join us and ended up with a party of 7 in total. The house was large enough to accommodate all of us. The lanai was my favorite part of the house to enjoy the ocean breeze. Walking distance, within a minute to Manini Beach and the bay or the opposite direction to launch kayaks or paddleboards. The locals were super friendly and giving, so of course we had to return the favor by renting from them a kayak to Snorkel and view the dolphins in Kealakekua Bay. If you are looking for peace, relaxation and tranquility this home is for you...if you are looking for nightlife, close to bars and restaurants consider being closer to Kona. But it was perfect for us and the ultimate relaxation for the week. The only cons I would have to say is this house has no ac, so either A:be out doing something during the day as it gets very hot and stuffy mid day, or B in the water during that time. If there was ac in this house the rent would probably be crazy high since it is a perfect location. I would also suggest 1 more spare fan for the house since we used each sleeping space, our kids had to alternate nights sharing a fan which with a fan is bare able but without a fan uncomfortable. We were only happy to return home for our ac unit."

  • 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!"
