Kealakekua Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Beautiful Cottage with Old Hawiian Charm Minutes from Kealakedua Bay

This private, secluded and charming Old Hawaii style Ohana cottage (family home) is a stand alone dwelling just 5 minutes from beautiful Kealakekua Bay, Manini Beach, and Ke’ei Beach. The bay is famous for its incredible snorkeling, standup paddling, kayaking and opportunities to swim with the local pod of spinner dolphins.

The cottage consists of separate living quarters making it perfect for the longer staying guests. A living room/bedroom with a queen-size bed, a well appointed kitchen with full size refrigerator, washer/dryer, bistro table, gas barbeque, covered lanai with outdoor seating, lua, and a private outdoor shower all with panoramic views of the South Kona coastline. Along with charming Old Hawaii ambiance, enjoy the modern conveniences of wireless internet, cable, and flat screen TV with DVD player. The cottage is surrounded by lush tropical gardens including palm, mango, papaya, avocado, banana, passion fruit and citrus trees along with many exotic flowering Hawaiian plants. The cottage is situated at the top back of the property, allowing for sweeping coastline views and privacy.

The property is well located, close to the beach and within minutes to shopping and restaurants, including a grocery store that carries many local and organic options, plus a weekly farmers market. Within walking distance is the Paleaku Peace Garden where guests can take yoga classes or spend a quiet meditative afternoon. Nearby also is the historic Painted Church and City of Refuge at Honaunau.

There are many hiking opportunities and local beaches waiting to be explored in this rural Kona neighborhood. A tandem ocean kayak is available on site as well, with lots of local knowledge as to the little known hot spots of this South Kona community.

We look forward to welcoming you to this Kona Coast power spot where you will experience the true Aloha spirit of Hawaii.

Peter and Barbara have mixed histories on the Big Island. Peter, a 20 year resident and recently retired, is enjoying all the water sports available within a few minutes of his home, especially snorkeling and stand up paddling. Barbara is newer to Hawaii and commutes from the main land to join Peter with his adventures as often as possible. Both are passionate about the South Kona area and give back to the community that has given them so much by volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and Friends of Manini Beach. Peter is an avid gardener and when not on the water can be found planting, transplanting and trimming in his exotic Hawaiian garden. Barbara, when not following Peter on some bay or reef excursion, is busy identifying and learning the habits of the local birds that share the accommodations on their beautiful parcel of land. Both find time daily to sit quietly and watch incredible sunsets on Kealekakua Bay from the lanai of their recently renovated historic Hawaiian home.

Peter Coxen purchased this cottage in 2011

Great rural location away from tourism, minutes from Kealakekua Bay and world class snorkeling, privacy within a low density area, incredible views. Being able to watch the whales in the bay from your lanais and the 'Hawaiiana' feel that the main house and cottages have.

Tropical gardens and fruit trees throughout property, including avocado, mango, papaya and various citrus trees.

Rural but close to shopping, restaurants, hiking and water sports.

Local knowledge shared for the little know 'hot spots' of this part of the island.

We spent almost a month at this property and it was as described and presented in the photographs. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained, the rental unit was clean and well maintained and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable right to the beach towels and beach chairs provided. The outdoor shower was beautiful! I really enjoyed living in screened areas, it was very much like luxury camping! There were roosters and turkeys on the neighboring properties, fun to watch and not close enough to disturb the quiet. The small property accommodated three dwellings - two rentals and the owner's house which at times felt a bit close. The owner was helpful with suggestions about things to do and areas to visit and was very hospitable. A vehicle is critical to your stay here, as the property is a significant distance from grocery shopping and beaches. The area has a lot of great opportunities for fun - snorkeling, hiking, sightseeing, tours etc. Just below the property is Big Island Bee's - a great place to learn about beekeeping and to sample delicious honey. We shopped at the local fishmarket (Bryan's), bought the very best Coconut Macroons from a fruit market nearby on the highway and ate one or two burgers at Annie's Burgers and Beer...very delicious! With such narrow windy roads we were not comfortable walking alongside the roadways as there was no shoulder whatsoever so there were no opportunities to walk from the property. In summary a great place to stay to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in Hawaii, to relax and a lovely place to come home to at sunset and watch the sun dip into the ocean, waiting for the "green flash"!

We had such a pleasant stay here at the cottage. It is really a beautiful and peaceful place and we absolutely loved it. Enjoyed the views and the serenity while sitting out on our private deck. The owner gave so many great recommendations of beaches and restaurants to go to and everything was easily accessible to the location. Can't say enough how comfortable we felt there it was definitely a home away from home. Looking forward to going back!

A great place to stay in our favorite place on earth

This is a great place to stay in one of our favorite places on earth - Kealakekua Bay

This is a collection of 4 small buildings (living/bed, kitchen/dining, bathroom and shower that are all connected via a covered walkway. It feels like a collection of tree-houses, each of which has a magnificent view of the bay - including a great view from the bed and most importantly, the corner lanai.

The living/bedroom has screens without much glass meaning you will go to sleep and awake to the sound of nature (mostly birds, geckos and the wind in the palm trees). We liked that but some may not - however if you don't then you're probably better off staying in an air-conditioned resort further north as you are very much in nature at Kealakekua Bay.

The owner who lives in the adjacent building is very helpful with local knowledge and advice but unobtrusive. He may say hello once a day if you are around but unless you need him you're kept to yourself.

I cannot say anything bad about this rental except that I am sorry I am not still there! There is a main house and two rentals on this property, and total privacy everywhere. This one had a separate kitchen with a table for two, walking out to a lanai to lounge on while catching a tropical breeze and stare at the view of the bay! My friend slept out here he loved it so much. There is a grill to put some local fish and tofu on. Then there is a separate bathroom and a separate living room/ bedroom! Four different places to be. A store nearby has all you need, and on the way to Manini'owali Beach to snorkel with the dolphins in the morning, you can stop and buy a lei, or get some local honey. There was a coffee co op that gave samples of coffee, nuts, and foods until you were stuffed! You are near the place of refuge, and more beaches as well. There was snorkeling gear to use, which I appreciated. The host at that visit was someone who you wanted as your friend. I recommend this place for your visit to the Kealakekua Bay. I never saw Kona, as it just did not matter. Get some Kona coffee on your way. Just south of the airport is Kona Mountain Coffee. The premium private reserve dark roast will get your day going. I hope to return to this rental as soon as I can!

an idyllic spot located in the green coffee hills a short drive from the best snorkelling sites in Hawaii. Tranquil & private spot overlooking Kealekekua, Kiei & two step bays with easy access ti the main island road heading south to Volcanoes park & north to Kailua & Kohala beaches. comfortable, clean & cosy well equipped cottage with cable & wifi. Peter & Barbara are friendly & helpful. Great place to to stay off the beaten track & away from the tourist resorts as long as you have your own rental car. highly reconmended.
