Dolphin Bay House, Spacious 3 bedrms, 3 baths. 300 ft to Kealakekua Bay and Amazing Snorkeling. Stay in beautiful home in paradise. Great home base.
Excellent accommodation for families and friends; a destination itself. Our gorgeous two-story, 2,500 sq ft, Hawaiian vacation home includes 3 restful bedrooms, each with it’s own delightful bathroom. It is beautifully furnished in tropical style and is appointed with everything you need for your stay. Only 300 feet from famed Kealakekua Bay, Dolphin Bay House is located in a quiet, friendly Hawaiian village that has retained the charm and quiet, easy pace of Old Hawaii.

Relax, enjoy family and friends, and swim in the crystal clear waters of Kealakekua Bay.
The bay is practically at your doorstep. Kealakekua Bay, which means Pathway to the Gods, is a unique marine sanctuary that is home to pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, turtles and other amazing marine life. Marvel at the dolphins and whales (in season). Admire the graceful green sea turtles and go nose to nose with a rainbow of exotic fish.

Sleep to the sound of waves and awaken refreshed to a chorus of birds.
Two bedrooms are located on the second floor, and one on the first floor. There is a separate entrance and sitting area/twin bed for the first floor bedroom. Each bedroom has an attached bath with beautifully tiled, walk-in showers. There is a deep, soaking tub in the master bath. Granite countertops with two sinks in each of the upstairs baths add to the beauty and convenience. Many guests say "the photos don't do it justice!"

Conveniently located as your vacation home base on the beautiful Island of Hawaii:

• Two minute walk to Kealakekua Bay
• Three miles to Pu`uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (City of Refuge)
• Ten – 20 minutes to grocery stores, shops and popular restaurants
• Thirty minutes to Kailua-Kona town
• Beautiful two-hour drive to Volcanoes National Park
• Two - three hours to Hilo Town, Hawi, Hamakua Coast and much more

Our fully equipped kitchen has granite countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, two sinks, filtered drinking water, coffeemaker and grinder, blender and all cooking and serving utensils you’ll need. The living room, dining room, and lanai catch the tropical breezes in a true relaxed Hawaiian manner.

Relax on the lanai and watch as another spectacular Hawaiian sunset plays out before your eyes . . . truly a place to unwind and enjoy life! The lush landscaped areas hold surprises around every corner. Orchids, ferns and many varieties of palms grace the area. From the outdoor shower you can enjoy the view of the potted herb garden, bamboo and ti, which is used in many Hawaiian ceremonies. You may find ripe pineapples in summer, grapefruits and tangelos in winter. Bananas and coconuts may be ripe at any time.

Enjoy total privacy - Dolphin Bay House accommodates 2 - 7 guests, and you may use the entire home while a guest with us. Plan to make Dolphin Bay House your home away from home.

After many years of enjoying the Kealakekua Bay area we were fortunate to find Dolphin Bay House and Cottage, which we purchased in 2003. We feel this corner of the world is truly paradise. This home was a dream come true for us and we derive much pleasure in sharing our beautiful home, grounds and neighborhood with you.

Why did we choose this home? The location is perfect for us. We wanted to be able to walk to the water to swim, snorkel and observe the beauty of the ever-changing ocean and sky. Plus, it is important to us to be off the beaten track in a small community.

What we love the most is being able to have our whole family here in a spacious home to enjoy this magical place. There is nothing like drinking local Kona coffee and eating fresh bananas, mangoes, papayas and pineapples in season. Being able to hop out of bed to take a sunrise walk to the beach is exhilarating. And then there are the sunset walks to cap off the day. Of course snorkeling on those calm clear days is also pretty fantastic!

We are pleased to share Dolphin Bay House and Cottage with you, as we believe you will enjoy the fabulous weather, beauty and this very special neighborhood as much as we do. We look forward to welcoming you!
