We really loved this place! The property manager and owner were both helpful, friendly, and ver accommodating . The kitchen had everything we needed as did the bedrooms and bathrooms. We were a family of 7 adults with an infant and the upstairs unit was just perfect. They even provided a pack n play! For the price, I’d suggest some updates to the beds and bedding, but other than that it was a lovely home. Be aware that you do share the property with two other units as well as with neighbors on both sides accessing the property to use the kayaks, boat launch, and tide pool. They neighbors weren’t supposed to linger, but they did. We’ll be back to enjoy this beautiful bay, home and area!
Even better than the photos suggest
The house is very charming, an old fisherman’s house, comfortable without being too glamorous, with an amazing view, we didn’t want to leave. Ama the caretaker was very helpful and friendly. Beautiful quiet location with access for kayaks into Kealakekua Bay which not many properties have.
Amazing Location for Fun in the Sun Family Vacation
Reading the prior reviews, I had a number of concerns going in - but as you can see from my rating, those concerns were insignificant relative to the positive aspects of this property. Firstly, our family group was 8 plus a baby and there's relatively few choices near the shoreline with a group that large. But we had an amazingly relaxed time with plenty of room renting the upstairs and downstairs of the main house. We grilled fresh fish out on the old-school charcoal grill for three dinners, and relaxed on the various patios or inside catching up with family.
The pictures don't really do the property justice - there's a little wading pool in the rocks that was perfect for the baby, as well as a small grass lawn for running around. It is literally right on the water - you walk right out for some great snorkeling (gear provided if you don't have your own) or kayaking right from your property.
There is a flow of others coming through because the owners make this landing available to their other nearby properties. This takes away just a bit from the privacy, but it's really not an issue and the people you meet are nice.
The house was my biggest concern prior to arrival - but it is pretty well equipped with lots of room. The kitchens are quite serviceable with a good-sized refrigerator, and stove, oven, microwave, toaster, and dishwasher. The upstairs bedrooms share a single bath, which was OK with just two of the three bedrooms in use. Otherwise, that might be a bit of a challenge. There are two more bedrooms downstairs - and yes, the downstairs has low ceilings and is a little funky, but not nearly as much a concern as some reviews imply. We ended up with four and the baby upstairs, and two more couples downstairs, each with their own bath.
The house has the mood of an old beach house - not the posh granite countertops, etc. - but friendly and homey for a beach vacation. We'd go back in a heartbeat and we all wished we had booked a longer trip.
Thank you for the honest review of our property. You pretty much described the ambiance of the property. It's sounds like you had a memorable and wonderful family vacation.
Hawaii Beachfront Vacation Homes
Idyllic Hawaiian dream house
We were lucky to stay almost a week at this lovely oceanfront Kealakekua Bay home. The home was built in 1935 and the 1st one on the bay. Spent much of our time on the lovely large porch. Loved the hot tub, daily kayaking & snorkeling. Loved the large comfortable 3 bedrooms upstairs with wonderful Hawaiian breezes through the screened windows. Best sleep of my life! Thanks to owners Gary & Dave for preserving this treasure and sharing it with travelers from cooler climes. Thanks to Ama and the cleaning crew for their Aloha and hospitality! Loved seeing geckos, tropical birds, dolphins, turtles, fish, and Ama’s cute dog Dottie! Mahalo everyone! Hope to return sometime soon.
Location, value and access to the bay are 5 stars!
We had the entire property for family reunion and we were very happy. The facilities don't purport to be luxury and they're not; the circulation is limited in some of the bedrooms, and the kitchens are basic (hence the 4 stars) but these were trivial to our overall experience. We loved the place. The magic of the location is difficult to describe in words. Property mgmt was efficient and accommodating. Mahalo
This home couldn't be in a better location. The bay is beautiful and dolphins came several mornings.
This is a wonderful place to stay. The home has everything you'll need for a wonderful vacation. Stop at the grocery store on your way in and you never need to leave. The kayaks and snorkle gear make seeing the turtles, dolphins, and fish swarming the reef right outside the front door super easy. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more!
