Thanks Dominique. We had a wonderful time. The Dolphin House was perfect in every way: design,
landscaping, furnishings, supplies. Everything was laid out perfectly and was right where you would
expect it. And the location was amazing with beautiful views and an easy walk to town and lots of stores
and restaurants. We’d love to stay again when we return to Kona.
My family and I spent six unforgettable days at the Dolphin House on the Big Island to celebrate my 70th birthday in April. Starting with the service of the Chauffeur and the lovely Greeter meeting us when we arrived was such a lovely way to start ones stay. The house is beautiful and the view along with the sunsets are spectacular! We truly enjoyed our strolls along the sea walk and the access to the sandy beach so close by. The sound of the crashing waves on the black lava rock and so close, was wonderful. The location of convenience to shopping as well as it being walking distance to Ali'i Street to get fresh fruit and vegetables at the open Market for great food and little shops and great coffee is also a plus. The house supplied us with everything imaginable and more. The gourmet kitchen where my family put together some great meals. Each of us having our own bedrooms and bathrooms. The open concept of the indoor/outdoor living to the pool area. The waterfall flowing into the pool. The family spent many hours in the pool. The indoor/outdoor garden as you come through the main entrance. This place is truly paradise. Thank you to the owners and the staff for making this time with my family so special! I hope to come back.
My husband and I rented this house for ourselves and 8 family members for our destination wedding on the Big Island in May 2013. Everything was perfect from our arrival until departure and we really enjoyed being able to walk along the ocean and into town for iced Cold Brew coffees! We hired a private chef to come a couple of nights and the serving ware that's in the house made this meal feel like a gourmet restaurant, but with the intimate and private home setting it was much more special and a fraction of the cost of eating out!
We just returned from a fabulous week at the Dolphin House on the Big Island. I had booked it for my family to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. Our group consisted of 8 adults and two little ones. The house was spectacular and the location and view were priceless. It was so easy working with the owners and their staff to arrange our stay. This was a surprise for my husband who had no idea our sons and their families would be joining us. There was plenty of room in this house to accommodate all of our needs. The indoor/outdoor living flow was more than we could have asked for. Kitchen was wonderful to work in....we had every evening meal at the house due to the spectacular view and kitchen. Every detail has been considered in this vacation rental. The beds and linens were lovely....plenty of beach towels, toys, water toys, etc. The pool and patio area were a huge part of our living space. The owners and their staff supplied me with information on how to rent baby equipment (high chairs, booster seats, etc.) which made our stay even easier. The transportation from the airport was an added benefit, and the concierge service to have groceries at the house when we arrived was an incredible perk. This was a beautiful home, fantastic location, spectacular views....I would return in a heartbeat. My husbands 60th was an event to remember by our entire family. Thank you so much!
We had a family reunion of 10 and the Dolphin house met all are needs. The house is large enough that you didn't feel crowded. The house was clean and well maintained. Being able to fit all of the family at the table on the lanai was wonderful for our meals and sharing stories while looking out into the ocean and hearing the waves hit the rocks. Don't forget the beautiful sunsets. The 10 min walk to downtown and be able to use the community pool at the park to do lap swimming was nice. The gated community grounds were beautiful for walks and everyone very friendly. I would highly recommend the Dolphin House.
This house is fantastic! We had a large group of friends and relatives, including a family with a baby and it was perfect. All the rooms have their own bathrooms and we had a crib for the baby in the mother-in-law unit, which has its own entrance. The house is well-equipped with air conditioning if needed, beautiful lanai, everything you could possibly want for the beach (boogie boards, pool toys, mats, towels). The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is a cook's dream! We never went out because it is 5 minutes from Safeway and Costco and we just cooked at home every night. There is a fantastic bar with blenders and an ice machine which made for great pina coladas. You can watch sunset from the lanai every night. It is a 2 hour trip to the volcano national park, which we easily did in a day, and only about 20 minutes from beautiful snorkeling beaches. The house is also walking distance from Kona Brewery and a quick taxi ride to most major areas. There is also a really cute beach about a two minute walk down the sea wall. I would definitely go back any time!
Wow - what a wonderful home. We had great expectations, but this home exceeded them all!! Everything was well stocked with all cookware and silver services, linens and paper products. All the furniture, appliaces and ameninities were all first class. And the patio and pool were wonderful. I think we spend 85 percent of our time out there. Everyone in our families, from our youngest grandchild (7 yrs) to our oldest grandchild (22) was satisfied and happy with all areas of the home. The great long table on the patio gave us the opportunity to sit and drink coffee in the mornings - yet large enough to adquately accomodate all nine members of our family for our evening meals.
If you want a truly relaxing and grand vacation for a family gathering and vacation together this is your place. Absolutely wonderful.
