Kealakekua Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront Perfection Stunning 3BR 3BA Home w/Pool,Privacy,Dolphins,Sunsets

Enter this gracious open-plan home and have your breath taken away. Step through the front doors to find yourself delivered to - and surrounded by - the beauty, serenity and spiritual power of Kealakekua Bay.

Legally operating Vacation Rental GET/TAT W30256416-02 (State required information)

The water lapping at the back yard's rocks, is clear, cool and sparkling with sunlight. The awesome, cave pocked cliff that makes up the opposite shore, is known as the pali. Along the ridge of the Pali, the Hawaiians believed was the 'pathway of the gods' - which in Hawaiian is 'Kealakekua.' At the pali's base is the Captain Cook Monument, and a flashing beacon for nighttime mariners. Grab a deck chair and a glass of wine, as the sun creates it's fiery farewell across the magical water as millions of stars come aglow. Visiting dolphins and whales complete this dream come true.

(Note that pool and shoreline are not separately fenced off from house)

Relax-- breath in the aura of your private refuge- and a most memorable vacation.

About John Denissen (PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL RATHER THAN CALLING)

Moved to Hawaii in 1989 and built a home nearby. When friends decided to sell THIS place I grabbed it.

John Denissen (PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL RATHER THAN CALLING) purchased this house in 2004

Why John Denissen (PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL RATHER THAN CALLING) chose Kealakekua Bay

It's the perfect house (layout, windows, large rooms) for the perfect setting it enjoys. You are surrounded by the majestic beauty of Kealakekua Bay.

What makes this house unique

There's no other house in the world like this~ truly. There's no more beautiful water in all of God's creation. The water is filled with stunning sea life-- tropical fish of course, turtles, dolphins and whales.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha

I know you will find your stay here on the Bay as wonderful as I. From beautiful mornings to brilliant days I have been enchanted by this gracious home and it's beauty.

After Big Island adventures we joyfully returned "home" for non-ending rest and relaxation. In fact a couple days we stayed home to soak in this calming place. I will never forget our visit and I hope one day to return.

Many thanks!

Wow! We have rented on vrbo before, this is the first time the house really is all that you see online and more! We spent a week in paradise my family and I did the volcano, Hilo, kona, waimea, sunset cruise a blast! This was a week of peace, breathing in fresh air, being with family and staying in awe of all the beauty this Island has to offer. Thank you John, I will never forget this view, it will give me strength in making some tough health decisions. I hope to come back!!! Mahalo and aloha,

Linda & Jimmie

The tranquility and beauty this home offers is a time to remember forever. We had several days to share wonderful thoughts and feelings with family who mean everything to us. The joy we experienced will remain in our hearts until we return.

The view, sounds and fragrances give you a tremendous feeling of happiness. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Wishing all who stay here much joy and live in your hearts.

Hawaii Like you want it to be

  • 5 of 5
We are lucky and got to go back to Alaula Kai for a second time. You wonder whether your memories are inflated, but really this place is much better then you can remember. From the moment you open that front door and see the pool, the palm trees, and that wonderful peaceful bay, you are reminded why you always smile when thinking about your time here. Then the spinners come to entertain you during your morning coffee on the lawn or you simply look over the lava coast and see the tangs swimming by. If you want tranquility this is the place. We always find it hard to leave, but when you are energetic, there is always a kayak across to the monument or a short ride down to two step for a great snorkel. And I have not even mentioned where it gets its name, the sunsets which are different every night and gorgeous. We can't wait until we are lucky enough to come back for a third and fourth and many more times to come. Alaula Kai will remind you why you love Hawaii.

Big Island Nirvana

  • 5 of 5
This is simply an amazing home. The lay out of the house is perfect for families and the house itself is beautiful. It overlooks Kealakekua bay and the Captain Cook monument. Fabulous sunsets over the ocean, beautiful water to gaze at, put your SUP and paddle across looking at all the sea life and very likely being entertained by the resident Spinner dolphins. In the heart of Kona coffee country for those who want to visit a farm and taste great coffee. Can't say enough good things, can't wait till I get the chance to return.

Most relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
My mother lives in the area and when my family of 4 decided to visit we wanted to find a place that we would all enjoy. What better than a home on the bay with fantastic views and a pool! I am a bit of a research nut so I combed through every rental by the bay and after comparing prices, floor plan, and views this was the one. It even has a grassed back yard!
The house has been fully updated. The bathrooms and kitchen are perfect. Since the home is set up around a courtyard, everyone can come together or enjoy privacy. There is a large outdoor dining table that was the perfect place for meals, coloring, playing cards or just visiting. I spent most of my time perched in a chair reading my book as I gazed out over the bay. The pool is a good temperature, but it is deep. The shallow end is 4’ or so and gets deeper. My boys became good swimmers quickly.
My husband and I both commented that this was the most relaxing vacation. Since you are staying in a home with a pool and a great view, you don't feel the pressure to leave and find adventure…..except perhaps to visit manini beach a few seconds drive away.
The owner is responsive and very easy to work with. The deposit was returned within a week after we returned home. His local property manager Krista does a wonderful job at check-in/out and is available to answer questions. I highly recommend staying here – we plan to return as soon as we can!

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in John's beautiful home! John and Krista were great to work with. The home is perfectly located in the town of Captain Cook, away from the more touristy areas of Kona and Kohala, although we enjoyed visiting those areas for a meal or a stroll. On our second day, we kayaked on the bay and swam with spinner dolphins for close to two hours; they jumped and spun around just 10 feet from us. That night we snorkeled with the manta rays with a great tour operator, Blue Sea Cruises. We were in the water for 30 minutes with eight enormous mantas and they were within inches of us. Almost too close for me! On Tuesday evening we went to a luau at the Mauna Kea resort, which was very well done as far as luaus go. Wednesday we snorkeled and kayaked again. We enjoyed dinner at Sam Choy's that night. Thursday my husband and sons played golf at Makalei Golf Club while I enjoyed a massage at the Fairmont Orchid. Friday we spent the entire day at the Kilauea Volcano park which was fabulous. And then after leaving this lovely home on Saturday, we enjoyed a delicious lunch by the water at the Four Seasons resort. We also enjoyed swimming with turtles and reef sharks nearby at Two Step on Friday and Saturday mornings. All in all we had a fantastic time, and John's home was the perfect place to relax and enjoy ourselves after activity-filled days.

Real Big Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We just spent nine days in this fabulous house and are still missing our life on the Big Island. There are no words that can describe that view. The pictures don't do it justice - you just have to go see it for yourself. The house itself was just perfect for our party of five adults and our one year old daughter. The layout worked really well to give everyone enough privacy while providing great views from every room and lots of communal space for cooking, eating, drinking, sunbathing and just lounging around. Our days were spent exploring the local area for snorkel spots (all the best ones on the island are right nearby) and road tripping to the volcano and other fun sites. Our evenings were spent making cocktails, grilling fresh fish on that awesome BBQ and watching the sunset while our daughter played happily on the giant lawn. How much better can life get?

Kealakekua Bay has always been a special place to me, and the out of the way location of this house is exactly what we were looking for. Just up the road you can pick up some Kona coffee at the Co-op and grab a fish sandwich or plate lunch and some shave ice at Kalamas. We went into Kona a couple times (I recommend a trip to Kona Brewing Co if you make it to town), but mostly couldn't wait to get back to the house. If you want to slow down, escape the tourists and live like a local in the best location on the Big Island, this is the house for you. John, the owner, was super easy to work with, and Krista was a delight and quick to respond to anything we needed. We really hope to make it back here sometime in the near future.

Rent this house! Don't just stare at the pictures...go there now! :D

Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5
My family of six stayed at this lovely property for four nights in August 2013 and were sorry to leave at the end of our trip. The listing description and photos accurately describe and reflect this fabulous home, its location, and appearance. The view of the ocean, the bay, and sunsets from the yard are truly spectacular. The property was very clean and well maintained---my wife was very comfortable and that's saying something as cleanliness is extremely important to her, We saw a few ants the first morning, but we followed the instructions regarding keeping the kitchen area clean and had no further issues. The owner and manager are helpful, a pleasure to deal with, and very gracious. We caused some damage to a closet, but the owner did not deduct any amount from the deposit, which he promptly returned after our stay. We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling in the bay. We have rented in Hawaii through VRBO several times in the past, and this was by far our best experience. We would very highly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Kealakekua Bay is the Kona Coast's finest sparkling gem of protected water. Dazzling blues of every shade, and an endless panaorama of surf, sky, sailboats, kayakers (SEE NOTE BELOW) and even whales and dolphins go by.

Our guests rave about the Bay, the house, and their wonderful vacations.... you will too.

Other Activities: dolphins, whales, FISH.

(NOTE: Generally, kayaking at Kealakekua Bay is possible only through licensed tours with permitted kayaks. We recommend Aloha Kayaks and Kona Boyz. At other nearby sites other options are available. The bay is better than ever for SWIMMING!
