A super vacation rental in every way!

  • 5 of 5
My family met in Hawaii to celebrate my upcoming 70th birthday, so this house had to fit many needs from young to older! And for one week, it was a delightful place to meet, hang out, visit, snorkel, tour, and eat! The house was clean and extremely well maintained. The reports are true, we did simply snorkel from right in front of the house and see turtles, dolphins, live coral and many kinds of tropical fish. And, on the verandah one late afternoon, we watched whales in the bay. I could hardly get my kids and older grandkids out of the water. For the very young, there is a small white sand beach and water play area with a picnic-park, just a short walk away. The kids loved roaming around the backyard and bringing in lilikoi (passion fruit) from which we made the owner's favorite ice-cream! YUM! The papaya and bananas were not quite ready (sigh). Our grandchildren loved and named each gecko; they are a beautiful green and larger than any I've seen before and just set the stage of island living. The kitchen, appliances and kitchenware of all kind rivals mine at home - a chef's delight. We cooked outdoors and ate on the deck most evenings to the sound of the waves. The beach house is completely outfit with good quality play-toys as snorkel gear (much better than rentals), boogie boards, kayaks and bicycles and in the week we were there, we used it all! I'm a rural Idaho gal, but there is something so very special about waking up to roosters crowing and waves slapping. From each bedroom you could listen to the waves and water all night long; in fact we kept the house open except when we were gone and enjoyed the tropical life to the max.
While we enjoyed our days away (one to the Volcano Park and one across island to Hilo) we almost wished we'd stayed "at home" because of nice little trips in the direct environ as "the painted church", beautiful scenery, The City of Refuge State Park, a fishing trip, lots of organic farms, coffee growing and farmers coops to buy gifts and stock up on local food! If you are hankering for a restaurant, an ice-cream and coffee shop, there is a great local strip just minutes away. People are super friendly throughout this small community just 30 minutes to the south of Kona (telling folk lore and stories about the tsunami). Heaven it was! Now we are all in shock as we've returned to the frigid Pacific northwest and Wyoming. We will be back, you can believe it and it cannot be soon enough!

An amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for nearly two weeks and enjoyed the location, the home…everything. The owner was great to work with and very responsive.

We had a family of 6 so we occupied all of the main house bedrooms.

It is in a neighborhood so you have to remember that while we were on CST everyone else was 4 hours behind us. We tried to be respectful of our noise in the evening and early morning.

We enjoyed using the bikes around the neighborhood.

This isn’t for someone who is looking to lay out on a sandy beach. This area is made up of beautiful shoreline of volcanic rock. The views are breathtaking, but sandy beaches are on the north end of the island which we did on several occasions, allowing 90 minutes to drive to the beaches near Hapuna or Mauna Kea. These beach parking lots fill up fast so best to be early (by 9:30 AM).

The snorkeling across the street is amazing. We have visited the islands over 20 times (family use to live on Maui) and have snorkeled and dived around most of them. Kaelekakua Bay is one of the best. I would suggest you explore to see how wonderful this protected area truly is. There are other snorkeling areas as well if you are up to exploring.

The owner has kayaks available (2 singles and 2 doubles). This was an incredible opportunity to go out in into the bay which we did several times.

It is hard to imagine that this place was hit by the tsunami three years ago. Yes, some of the nearby homes still show damage. The water is crystal clear, the coral is thriving, and the Manini Beach Park, a short 2 minute walk, is a great quiet place to relax. We “sunbathed” on the grass watching the waves many times. It is a great spot where locals far outnumber tourists.

The location is off the beaten path but yet convenient. Decent grocery stores and good local restaurants only 15 minutes away.

The home was perfectly equipped. Don’t expect hotel like service, but we quickly found ourselves not wanting to leave. The owner has done a good job of providing the basics. The home was clean and comfortable with amazing views. A perfectly comfortable setting. But since it is someone’s home, we did experience some things that weren’t in perfect order. The grill needed cleaning and some of the appliances were not in perfect working order. Washer and dryer were new and the laundry area was clean which was much appreciated. But hey…this is Hawaii and we loved it all!

Wonderful house right at the bay

  • 5 of 5
I've been to Hawaii a bunch of times, this is the 2nd time at a Kealakekua Bay rental house, and this one is my favorite.

It was important for us to be on the water, and Manini Beach House is about 75 feet from the water where we were able to wade into the water and snorkel from there; or walk about 300 feet to the Manini Beach Park where there is a sandy open spot that was very safe for kids to play at. This beach is what my wife calls her "happiest place in the world."

The house is beautiful - tiled floor throughout, beautiful wood trim, all the kitchen appliances and accessories (even an ice cream maker), granite counter tops, a large back yard deck where you have your big meals at.

There are two floors in the main part of the house with 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, and a small apartment style place in the bottom basement area. There are plenty of showers in the house, but there is also one outside under the stairs - great to wash off from snorkeling/swimming.

The view from the patio is wonderful as you can see 90% of the bay from there - we watched a baby humpback that looked like it had just been born that night or early morning with its mother (this is early Feb '13 btw).

The house was nicely decorated. You could tell the owner liked fishing, but was certainly not over the top - as my wife would put it.

If you are into fishing, then you must ask the owner for references. He referred us to a local who took us out fishing for a very reasonable price. The fishing season hadn't quite started, but we caught a few Skip Jack's and saw a ton of sea life - big pod of pilot whales, about 50+ dolphins, and a saw two sets of humpback whales - the guy who took us out said we were very lucky to see all of that. We did a lot on this trip, but the fishing was the highlight.

I can't recommend this house enough. My wife and I, as well as the couple we went with, all said we must bring other family and friends back to this house if we can ever get folks to come to Hawaii with us.

I've never met the owner, but he was very prompt in returning calls and/or emailing us back.

Only draw back of this place is there are from time to time people that slow down on the street to take pictures of the place or write down the phone number for their next visit - i don't blame them.

I highly recommend his house.

Excellent house in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for 3 months last winter in order to have our baby on the big island. It was the perfect place to rest up before our baby's arrival and to welcome her home to. The house is comfortable, well equipped and nicely put together. The owner has good taste and it is nicely decorated. The house has a large upstairs bedroom that provides for a lot of privacy and the two downstairs bedrooms are comfortable also. The kitchen has everything you could want - and there is a bbq on the back deck. The front porch doors are accordion doors that you can open all the way to have a beautiful view of Kealakekua Bay - it feels like you're at the beach in your own living room. We rented the house for a return vacation this summer and it has proven to be just as comfortable and charming as our first visit. The house is a 1 minute walk to the lovely Manini Beach where there is great snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. The area is very quiet and peaceful. The perfect place to relax and enjoy! I would highly recommend this house to anyone.
