TWO BR APARTMENT 30 SECONDS FROM FRONT DOOR INTO THE WATER!

Kealakekua Bay Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Come enjoy this apartment in our historic house (Carol's House) located literally across the street from Kealakekua Bay. Kealakekua, which means 'pathway of the gods', is the location where Captain James T. Cook first made contact with the native Hawaiians in 1778. Accounts of this historical time include a monument and actual crater in the side of the cliff created by Cook's cannonballs. You may kayak about one mile across the bay to the monument and view the craters on your way.

Today, Kealakekua Bay is a pristine wildlife sanctuary which boast dolphins, turtles, the occasional whale, and a multitude of tropical fish. It is considered to be one of the best snorkeling areas in the world. Local kayak, scuba and snorkel gear rentals.

4 miles to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Park, also known as the ancient City of Refuge. 'Two step' is another fantastic snorkeling spot nearby.

Groceries, restaurants, galleries etc within 5 to 10 miles.

It is 10 miles to Keauhou, where you can enjoy tennis, golfing, shopping, restaurants, and another 5 miles to Kailua-Kona. Take a day trip and enjoy Volcano National Park or the astronomy center on Mauna Kea (elev. 13,796)

All modern amenities are included. Family friendly!

Great value and great location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 7 Days and would have gladly stayed for longer. Carol, the Owner was an excellent communicator and displayed a genuine interest in ensuring her guests had a good stay. Evonne and Ernie the caretakers were friendly and helpful and at the same time created an atmosphere where they did not intrude on our privacy. The larger unit was clean and spacious for the two of us and we did not need to use the air conditioner as airflow was very good. Our bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space for our clothes etc. Internet was wireless and hassle free and I loved the small tv (which remained off) ...if you have nothing better to do than watch tv at this great spot you need your head read! Shower and bathroom facilities were clean and the second outside shower with hot water was awesome and private after walking back from a swim in the bay. Tha kitchen was functional with plenty of cooking equipment and a large gas oven. There was food, sauces, spices etc that had been left by previous guests that were appreciated. There were two BBQs in the back yard and an outside eating area as well as a very private undercover outside eating area.
The neighbourhood was quiet and the local people were friendly and happy to help with advice re places to see and things to do. Keep an eye out for the two very friendly next door dogs who are worth stopping for! There are mongoose (or is that mongeese) in the back yard that are fascinating to watch and plenty of birds visit the yard too. We came mainly to snorkel and enjoy the bay and Carols house provided the perfect affordable base. The snorkelling in Kealakekua Bay is excellent and Spinner dolphins visited the bay most days. On our last day a whale and calf entered the bay in the morning too. If you visit please try and hire kayaks from local people if you can. Ernie and Evonne can provide advice re local attractions as we'll. We can recommend this place to anyone wishing to experience this beautiful bay and we hope to return for more!

Snorkel-tastic !

  • 5 of 5
My best friend and I spent 8 days at this lovely place. Great location - no big holiday condos; the coffee shops, arts & crafts & groceries store at the top of the hill. A lovely quiet & cruisy spot. We saw Spinner dolphins everyday (remember you're not allowed to swim with them though...) One of our favourite things to do was stroll 5-10mins to Manini Beach / Napoopoo Park and laze on the grass beneath the trees between snorkels (incredible snorkelling). Swimming featured highly in our stay. After a morning snorkel, run or kayak, indulge in a kona coffee & mango, paw-paw & passion fruit breakfast, then simply cross the lane and jump off the harbour wall for a midday cool down! Absolutely gorgeous. Also, Place of Refuge is 4miles away and is stunning at sunset. In the same location is Two Step with amazing snorkelling again. Highly recommend. The house is very comfortable with all the mod cons: coffee machine to sample the local produce, big fridge, lots of cooling fans & comfy beds. There's no big sandy beach or cocktail bars on the beach but we'd both rather stay here again.

Kealakekua Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Carol's house between 13 and 23 of July 2012. The dolphins come to the Kealakekua Bay early in the morning. Carol's house is 1 minute walking distance to the bay. We also swam to the Captain Cook monument. Snorkelling there was a lifetime experience. Most people rent a kayak to go there which is also right across Carol's house. The good thing about her house was it didn't have an ocean view so we spent our time outside socializing with the locals, watching the fearless little ones jump into the water; very cool.
The house had everything we needed even snorkelling gear and boogie boards. We wish we paid more attention for the washer and dryer before we left; we could have taken less clothing with us.

Ernie and Evone manages the place and their knowladge about the area is priceless. Ernie taught our daughter how to kayak and boogie board. They were always there to help us.

We missed going but we heard that the best farmer's market is very close to Carol's house.

There is a grocerry store at 15 min distance but next time we go, we will go to Costco first then to Carol's place. Costco is very close to the airport.

We would definetely go back.
