Guestbook comments from the owner
This was the perfect spot to get away from it all. I can?t remember the last time I woke up to birds singing.

While we were here we got to see whales, dolphins and lots of tropical fish, and we loved the neighbourhood geckos and mongoose.

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

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2003

After many years of enjoying the Kealakekua Bay area we were fortunate to find Dolphin Bay House and Cottage. We feel this corner of the world is truly paradise. This is a dream come true for us.

Being able to hop out of bed to take asunrise walk to the beach is exhilarating. And then there are the sunset walks to cap off the day. Of course snorkeling anytime is also pretty fantastic!

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE AND YARD!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here at this cute cottage! Krista was very helpful and replied to all the e-mail messages that we sent to her before we arrived and during our stay. There was no one in the other house on the property when we were there so we had the whole yard to ourselves. The yard was so beautiful with all the plants, colorful flowers and trees! You can tell that they take pride in keeping the property in top shape. We enjoyed watching the geckos on the outside walls and in the trees. The first morning we woke up early but really enjoyed the sounds of all the birds…(well maybe not the Hawaiian roosters quite as much as the rest of the birds…but they added something unique to the chorus of birds also!) We loved the short walk to the beach and took advantage of it often to cool off at the end of a day spent touring around the island. We found the neighborhood clean, quiet and very relaxing. And often could hear the waves of the ocean on the beaches nearby. Even though we both have some issues with our backs, we found the bed very comfortable and fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow and felt refreshed in the morning. So I hope to visit the Big Island again in the future and we would consider to stay here at this cottage again. Thanks Krista for making our stay there so nice. We will recommend your cottage to friends and family!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for sharing your enjoyable experience at Dolphin Bay Cottage. We are so glad you were pleased with the grounds as we do strive to maintain the landscaping and its beauty. The king size bed is brand new and has been a very nice upgrade for our cottage guests. Napoopoo and Kealakekua Bay are unique and special places and we thank you very much for helping our future guests get a feel for what they can expect if they choose to stay at Dolphin Bay Cottage.

2 GREAT WWEKS IN HAWAII

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was a good size for 1 or 2 people. It was very clean and adequately furnished. Kitchen had enough dishes, pots and pans, etc. A new king size bed! Enough closet space, hangers and drawers.
Truly a 3 minute walk to one of the best snorkel bays on the island. We snorkeled almost everyday. Go in the morning, that's the best time. Water is very chilly.
The property manger was very friendly, helpful and had lots of suggestions and information.
We took a helicopter ride over the volcano, saw some lava. Long car ride to Hilo, 2 1/2 hours one way, where we went to do the ride.
We ate at local cafes....Keei's, The Coffee Shack, Mehina's., Annie's Burgers and Beer. Merriman's in Walina. All good.
Do a night snorkel to see the Manta Rays. We went out 3 times but they never showed up. Other folks had a great experience.
I would definitely recommend the cottage to my family and friends.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
The Dolphin Cottage was an awesome place to stay. The proximity to Manini beach put this lovely little cottage in our category of "best ever". The place was clean, well equipped, quiet, peaceful, friendly... and very conveniently located near a lovely grassy park that had a nice body surfing break and snorkeling entry is what is otherwise a very rocky coast.

Thanks very much for opening this spot up for visitors!

A VERY SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week at this perfect cottage. Easy access to surrounding beautiful gardens and the most beautiful and sacred Kealakekua bay made it perfect. Dealing with owners/management was very pleasant from the very start. Krista was available anytime and responded quickly with any questions. At the same time, we had our personal space we really treasured to enjoy quiet and peaceful time. The outdoor shower was wonderful for rinsing ourselves and our gear. Laundry facilities were wonderful. We could easily spend several months here and not go very far.....a giant playground. The neighbors were friendly and respectful. The extra fan in the home was much appreciated. Overall, a wonderful experience. Mahalo nui loa.

GREAT FIND! COMFORTABLE, CHARMING COTTAGE WITH ACCESS TO FANTASTIC SNORKELLING IN KEALAKEKUA BAY

  • 5 of 5
This property is accurate as described. The cottage is significantly larger than most average size hotel rooms. The sliding screen allows for privacy between the bedroom and futon/living area. The location is serene -- lush greenery and a well-tended garden make for a beautiful setting. Snorkelling at Captain Cook is only a 30 minute kayak ride away right off Manini beach. The access at Manini Beach, a few away minutes on foot, is great for those who just want to snorkel or paddle board right in the Bay. If you want to spend a few days getting to know this great part of Kona (the coffee plantations are also very close by) these properties allow you to feel that you are away from the tourists but accessible nevertheless.

The owners of this property (and Dolphin Bay house) really care about their visitors having a good experience. Both houses were very clean and particularly well-maintained. We rented both properties and would do so again the next time we have the opportunity to get to the Big Island.
