Overview

Kealakekua Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Very comfortable home, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This oceanfront home is named Kaikanani (the beautiful sea) and is located on the water's edge at the historic Kealakekua Bay. You are literally next to the ocean from every room. The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and very comfortably accommodates six people with two king beds and two twin beds. The home was renovated after being devastated by the March, 2011 Japan tidal wave.

Kealakekua Bay is a protected marine sanctuary and is an excellent place to snorkel, dive and kayak. Access to the ocean is next door at Manini Beach. The bay is filled with a variety of marine life- colorful tropical fish and beautiful coral. Dolphins and whales (in season) can be seen directly from the lanai! There is exceptional snorkeling right in front of the house in the clean, clear, and usually very calm water. Ocean water temperature averages in the mid 70 degree F.

This historic bay is where Captain James Cook first landed in Hawaii in 1778 and was killed on his return to Kealakekua a year later. Kealakekua is also the site of Hiki'au Heiau. The federal park Pu'uhonua O Honaunau, the Hawaiian's ancient City of Refuge, is a short drive (3.5m) to the south.

While at Kaikanani, be prepared to relax and experience the laid-back life-style of old Hawaii– no high rises or city noise here! Kealakekua Bay's village, Napo'opo'o, remains the sleepy village of yesterday. The only sounds you will hear will be the ocean rolling onto the shore. Hele mai! Come experience Kaikanani – once you do, you will want to return again and again.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We wish we could stay longer... We rented the house for only 3nights. Beautiful view and the house is very clean and has everything we need. We could see dolphins and whales from Lanai. If you want to do BBQ, you better buy charcoal in advance. We did not have charcoal so, we asked next door people. They are very kind and put the fire for us with woods. That was perfect!! Best snorkeling spots are around. Sunset from Manini Beach Park was outstanding !!! We plan to come back next year again!!

The best spot on the bay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our adult son and I spent 3 wonderful days in this house. It has a fabulous view of the bay from either inside or out. We had a wonderful storm the first night which made the view from inside even more important. The layout would be perfect for grandparents, parents and kids. There is a master BR upstairs and 2 BR downstairs off the garage with another bathroom. You go through the garage and up the outside stairs to get to the main living space where the master bedroom is. This gave our son his own private suite which was lovely. We rented kayaks to go to the Captain Cook monument and saw whales on the way over. Actually, my only complaint about the property is that the lanai is fairly narrow (although long) so eating there was a little tight. Otherwise, it was perfect

Absolute Magic!

  • 5 of 5

My Children and extended family stayed here for 4 nights during Christmas. We cooked a huge Turkey dinner with all the side dishes and the house had everything we needed. We fished off the rocks, snorkled, walked to the edge of the beach front to see the sunset every single night and dove the the Manta Rays. It was truly magical to have all our family in one house with so much beauty around us.

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed for 6 nights on Jan 2015. This was our 2nd time to stay at this house. Always great !! We saw whales from Lanai everyday. Also, we encountered with dolphin and swam with them at the Kealakekua Bay which is located just in front of the house!! Just stay at the house and relax, snorkeling…… BBQ… That all we did. We are sure to come back the house next year again.

We loved this house!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. We spent hours on the veranda watching the birds and dolphins. The kitchen had more than everything, the sheets and towel were soft cotton, the beds were comfortable and the furniture was unfussy but nice. I hate to admit we were happy to have cable so we could watch the playoffs. There are six of us and we never felt cramped. We snorkeled in Kealakekua every day and swam out near the dolphins. We kayaked to the Captain Cook monument for amazing snorkeling and hopped over to Honaunau for more. We would (and will) return to Kai Kanani any chance we get!

BEST VACATION HOUSE EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

This house and this Bay are amazing. This was the perfect tropical vacation. The house is comfortable and fresh. The beds are super comfy. Being right on the water without anything to obstruct the view was magical. We loved the sand beach just a few steps down the street. Our kids wanted to play there all day. Kealakekua sunsets are spectacular. Kayaking across the bay with dolphins splashing just feet away is breathtaking. I can't say enough good things about this very special spot. I almost did not write the review in hopes of keeping this house a secret :) It is a super bargain for what you get.

Drive into Kailua, Kona (25 minutes north) where there are many shops, stores, and restaurants. The closest grocery store, Choice Mart, is 10 minutes away at the top of the hill above the house in the sleepy little town of Captain Cook. Choice Mart is just south of the turndown road to the bay from the upper Mamalahoa Hwy. Also, there is a great restaurant that is also 10 minutes away called Keei Cafe.
