About Dave Anderson
We love the Big Island because of its people and its raw beauty, and of course the dolphins and whales that live here. My wife Gisele and I run Capt. Dave's Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point California. Check out our website www.dolphinsafari.com to learn more about us. The waters near Kailua Kona are one of the best places in the world to swim with wild dolphins year round and these waters also have incredible humpback whale watching, in season.
Dave Anderson purchased this House in 2004
Why Dave Anderson chose Hōlualoa
I believe you will love this home, as we do, because of the beautiful view across Lyman's bay, which is considered sacred ground and it will never be developed. And you can look out at the open ocean as well. The pocket doors and windows disappear so you can literally bring the outside inside. It is only 20 feet from the turquoise water, and because it is a newer home it comes with central air, which is actually a surprising rarity in many oceanfront properties in Kona. I believe this home is one of the most beautiful homes on the Big Island. It has a simple unpretentious beauty. I love that we can share this home with others, like we have shared the beautiful dolphins and whales we love with others. Kona has so much to do; restaurants and nightlife, if you are looking to do that, or if you are like us, this is paradise for nature lovers. You will love the giant sea turtles and eels and fish and crabs and birds and geckos and dolphins and whales sighted at various times right from the home. Kona is a great community of people. And we are certain that you will enjoy staying in the center of this very culturally diversified community. Mahalo, Capt. Dave 'E nanea ho'i kau' (definition, an enjoyable and peaceful stay).

Dream vacation in a dream location!
The house was exactly as described and met all our expectations. The owners were prompt with all communication. The only snafu was my fault, in not letting the owners know before arriving at the house that I wanted to use the A/C; thus the first few hours there were warmer than I wanted. The stove was a bit tricky for me to figure out, but the three millennials with me had it working in no time. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Thank you to Julie and Pasqual
Aloha and thank you for the wonderful Review Barb!
We have posted instructions near our hi- tech stove to make cooking on it simple.
We look forward to your return.
Better Than the Pictures
House: Privacy and quiet next to EVERYTHING and house was close to perfect. The experience from the outside is a joy. You have grass with lovely birds, exotic plants and an ocean with waves that will satisfy anyone's lust for crashing surf. You don't have easy access to the water. It's an island rock location, rather than a beach. But it's supremely satisfying. The pictures don't compare to reality. The house was immaculate. My bed linens were first rate. I'm fussy about that. The appliances are tricky. My one caution for this property: try cooking before you purchase expensive ingredients. There are sharp knives if you look. The oven is not reliable for sensitive cooking. The stovetop is not easily regulated either. Master the system by cooking eggs on the stove and baking easy bake oven rolls first to get the feel of it. I had to share that info, but hope it dissuades no one from renting. It's one of the best house I've rented and I rent two or three times a year in the price range. The upstairs bathrooms are first rate and there are clean towels and linens stuffed everywhere in drawers and cabinets. There are no blankets or bathroom rugs, which was odd. Views from two of the three bedrooms are what you pay money for: they are beautiful and the sounds of the surf never stop. The neighbors never bothered me with noise. Tap water was a-okay and laundry appliances are top notch (buy detergent and dryer sheets). The owner charges for AC. I don't blame him. I'd recommend getting the AC started before you arrive with bags and the sweaty effort of getting settled. I'd also ask the owner to text you a picture of the street entrance. It's not easy to see.
Area: the house is maybe two minutes from the Alli stuff. It's a short trip from the doorstep if you want to shop, eat or get a tattoo. The area offers everything a tourist wants. You can rent a boat to take out solo, scuba with tours, snorkel or scuba at night with manta rays or just hit a beach. We did that and hit the luau at the Sheraton. It was fantastic. There is also easy access to the ocean. You can see it to the left from the yard. I collected a few great pieces of coral from the amazing amount of coral that won't seem interesting after you're there five minutes. That beach is covered in coral and lava rocks. Three sea turtles made a visit in my one hour adventure. One parked itself on my foot.
Owner: seemed first rate. He was responsive, fair, inquisitive and easy to do business with.
The property was amazing!
The house is in a perfect spot. One mile from the beach, two miles from the town, and a short walk to Da Poke Shack. The house is clean, well kept, and was the perfect size for three couples.
Great house, great location
We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed all the Big Island has to offer. The house was a wonderful place to enjoy coffee and dinners on the lanai. The house is nicely appointed and the owners are very responsive and accommodating! We'd stay again for sure!
Gorgeous oceanfront paradise our family
Beautiful home, helpful owners and great location to explore this beautiful island as first time visitors. Highly recommended!!
Aloha and thank you Jennifer! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Please return when you miss the sounds of the ocean.
Great House in a Great Location
The house was just what we were looking for...on the beach, easy drive to town, and fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We stayed 7 nights. We used the deck more than any other feature of the house where we drank coffee while watching the surf every morning and where we sat and watched the sunset each night . The owner was very responsive and accommodating. We highly recommend staying here.
Thank you for choosing our home we are glad you enjoyed it.
Lu'au, spear fishing, out rigger canoes, stand-up paddle boards, scuba diving, manta ray night diving, whale watching, swim with the dolphins.
