We are Dennis and Beth. We have been married 20 years and have two boys (11 and 14 years old). We live in Sebastopol, California (Northern California), in the wine country. We have the best of both worlds by living, working and raising our boys in northern California and having a vacation rental in one of the most beautiful places in Hawaii.

I went to school at Honaunau Elementary (at the top of the hill, just above the Aloha House). My family still lives and works there. My father has a mango and coffee farm just up the road from the Aloha House.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

The Aloha House is walking distance from the water. We even put our dive tanks on at the house and walk to the ocean! The house location is perfect as a home base for exploring the island in all directions.

We purchased this property near Kealakekua Bay in 2002. We built the house as a vacation rental with Rental Guests in mind. Making sure each bedroom has its own bathroom, etc. We chose this property because it makes such a perfect location for a vacation rental guest.

GREAT LOCATION & AMENITIES

Great Location & Amenities
  • 4 of 5
We've stayed in the Kealekekua Bay Area several times and enjoyed these accommodations more than others we've stayed at (this was our first stay at Aloha House). The house was clean and well cared for and met all our expectations from the description on the VRBO website. We prefer the 'local' flavor of the area as well as the peacefulness of the neighborhood. The locals are very friendly and the sites available in the area offer activities of both historical and naturalistic interest. We typically swim with the dolphins in the bay and the place of refuge. We also charter a trip with John Float at Dolphin Essence. We recommend the Sunrise Cafe just south of the top of Napoopoo Road, and the Keii Cafe just north of Nopoopoo Road. We also recommend Lava Java in Kailua Kona and Merrimen's up at Waikoloa. The snorkeling at the little Park just down the road is spectacular with the marine life, turtles and the occaissional dolphin pods. All in all a wonderful trip and look forward to future vacations at Aloha House.

TYPICALLY CYNICAL

  • 5 of 5
I've stay in some good and some not so good VRBO homes in and out of the U.S. I have to rate Aloha House as exceptional. The home was clean and well kept and everything worked, the pictures don't do it justice. There's great view from the deck, which also has outdoor dining area big enough for the whole family. You're literally at grandpa's pace a 3 minute stroll to the ocean. There's a small beach at the park, which is a launch pad to some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. I'd also recommend renting a Kayak and paddling out into the bay. It is also 15 minute drive to the Place of Refuge State Park which is well worth visiting. The nearest shopping is about 15-20 minute drive, so it's pretty convenient but you don't want to forget the eggs. Of all the VRBO I've stayed at and I've stayed many, this is one of the few I'll gladly stay at again.

SO SURPRISED WITH HOUSE

  • 2 of 5
Pros: Location was nice. Very close to ocean. The lanai was great. Great outdoor space. A good assortment of beach equipment. Unfortunately, our stay was ruined by the bugs. We found a couple of cockroaches in the house. Also, the tiny black ants were everywhere. It did not matter how much we kept the food put away, and the counters clean. We tried to keep everything we could in the refrigerator. The house is in need of a very deep cleaning. Its is rented so much, that it is not getting a proper cleaning. If you clean it up and get rid of the ants, it would make a big difference.

FABULOUS VACATION GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at the Aloha House twice and have visited the Big Island many, many times. We love the Aloha House - easy access to the water, very comfortable accomodations, clean - just so lovely. I keep a picture of the Aloha House on my refrigerator so I can dream of my next trip. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The pictures you see on the website are accurate. You don't have a direct ocean view - there are one row of homes between you and the ocean - but you can see the ocean from the back deck and can hear it as you fall asleep at night. We hope to stay here as often as possible. It would be a great place for us to return to with family as there are plenty of bathrooms and lots of space. Less then a block away you can rent Kayaks and spend the day on the water or boat over to captain cook for great snorkeling. Located on a very a quiet street, the Aloha House is a great place to relax and spend your vacation.

HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Aloha House was a terrific find for a family vacation celebrating my mom's birthday. For less per night than it might cost to rent a hotel room for two, 4 adults and 2 tweens enjoyed the huge lovely wraparound lanai where we lounged around and ate all our meals, ample & tidy bedroom and bathroom space (important for 6 people!), and a kitchen & outdoor grill that met all our cooking needs. This is not a "right on the sandy beach" destination -- Manini Beach is small & rough -- but it's just steps from a shoreline walk looking out across the bay at spectacular Captain Cook (plus a kayak-rental area, though we opted for a snorkel boat daytrip from the Kailua-Kona harbor) and a very short local-road drive to Place of Refuge & the fine snorkelling at "Two Step". Plus it's nicely situated between the white-sand beaches to the north and the volcano sights to the south. We took several beach daytrips and an overnight trip to Volcano & Hilo. A perfect base for all of our expeditions in a real neighborhood, scenic & friendly, not the trafficky hotel-strip-mall zoo further up the Kona Coast. We were happy to be out of the hustle and bustle, awed by the sunsets, and super grateful for hot showers, laundry facilities, plenty of beach towels, and quiet nights.

GREAT STAY AT THE ALOHA HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Aloha House during December 2009. We arrived tired and weary late in the evening, but from the moment we walked up the stairs and entered this beautiful home, we immediately felt relaxed and happy and very welcome. This bright and modern home was immaculate. It is a family friendly home and exudes a warm and welcoming ambience. Upon our arrival there was a huge bowl of fresh fruit. The house suited us so perfectly, especially considering the fact that we were a family with two grown-up kids and their partners as well as two younger children and I can honestly say that the photographs on the listing portrayed the house exactly as it is. Everybody had their “own space” which was important to us – the two younger children loved sleeping in the loft and we spent many happy evenings on the beautiful deck overlooking the garden, sipping a drink and simply relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the area. In the mornings we would enjoy breakfast on the deck, with colourful geckos joining us – the kids loved photographing them. The area of Kealakekua Bay is very beautiful and tranquil as well as historical. We found the people in the area to be friendly and helpful. If you are after a quite and peaceful time, then this is the area for you – we also found that booking the house was extremely trouble-free, easy and friendly. The house is very close to the Kayak rental and a short stroll to Manini Beach. We also met Sandy, the care-taker, a lovely lady who gave us, as first-timers to Hawaii, many tips and useful information. Although we did not actually get to sample the hamburgers in Kealakekua Bay, we did hear about them – there is a shop in the area that apparently makes very good hamburgers and ices. My only suggestion is that if you want to get around the island, I would recommend that you have transport available.
