About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Kealakekua Bay

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

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.

I can't wait to return to Dolphin Bay Cottage.

I can't wait to return to Dolphin Bay Cottage.

I can't imagine a better place for a pair of friends to enjoy the peacefulness of the Big Island. Arrival and check-in at Dolphin Bay Cottage was very easy. During our stay we did not need to contact the owner or the caretaker because we didn't have any problems. The cottage was clean, airy, nicely furnished, and stocked with just about every incidental item that we forgot to bring. My friend and I took turns sleeping on the bed and the fold-out futon. Both were very comfortable. It felt refreshing to sleep with the windows open, to enjoy the breeze and the sound of the sea, to wake up to filtered sunlight through surrounding tropical garden foliage. In the mornings we'd stroll to the beach, enjoy coffee and a leisurely breakfast, pack sandwiches for a day trip of hiking and snorkeling, come home to cook dinner (use of the gas grill was awesome!), and finally stroll back to the beautiful beach for peaceful sunsets and stargazing.

The snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay and nearby Honaunau Bay were unforgettable highlights. The five days flew by and I wished I had stayed longer. Thank you for your hospitality. I can't wait to return.

a good place to stay

  • 4 of 5
The cottage is very comfortable and the king-sized bed just gorgeous! It is well-equipped with all you are likely to need. The stove is archaic, so boiling water for tea is slow, but apart from that everything is in good shape. I liked the idea of people leaving their unfinished items like ketchup and olive oil - really helpful to those who like to cook some meals and just need a small amount of these different condiments. Although it is a bit of a hike to get up to Route 11, there is plenty to see and do in the two bays nearby and the Place of Refuge is well worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are so glad you liked the bed and other aspects of the cottage and locale. We appreciate you letting us know about the stove and are sorry it took so long to boil water. As we want our guests to be as comfortable as possible we have been researching a new stove for the cottage. An apartment size stove is not available on the island but we are looking into ordering one from the mainland or remodeling the kitchen to accommodate a more readily available stove. Regarding the proximity to the highway, yes, it is about 7 miles up the hill to stores, restaurants etc. It is good for folks to know that we are in a "get away from it all" kind of place with the feel of old Hawaii. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope you'll visit Dolphin Bay Cottage again. Aloha nui loa

Dolphin Cottage, Captain Cook, HI

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the Hawaiian vacation of our dreams at the lovely Dolphin Cottage. This charming cottage has everything one needs to settle in and enjoy all that the Big Island and Captain Cook have to offer. The cottage is exactly as advertised, very nicely furnished, plenty of closet and storage space, roomy and perfectly comfortable for two people. The full sized kitchen has everything necessary to prepare easy and delicious tropical meals, including a rice cooker! We made awesome sushi three nights in a row. . . Snorkeling in the bay is perfect- and it is a three minute stroll from cottage to the bay. Snorkeling is awesome! My husband, a marine biologist, identified at least 40 species of fish. The neighborhood is very friendly and quiet- Krista, the caretaker, was nearby and available for any and all our questions about the area, she even left us a home-grown white pineapple in the fridge. The garden patio for our al fresco dining is lovely and private. The grounds surrounding cottage are beautiful with geckos, birds, and flowers. The king size bed is very comfy, while ceiling fans kept us comfortable after a day of swimming, sightseeing and touring the Island. The nearby park, next to the bay, was a perfect place to have our first cup of coffee, and enjoy the Hawaiian sunrise. Likewise, the sunsets were awesome at the end of a beautiful day. The Aloha Spirit imbues this delightful vacation spot with something very special and unique. We look forward to our next trip to Dolphin Cottage!

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!

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!
