Capture The Magic of Old Hawaii
Relax and restore in old Hawaii when you stay at Dolphin Bay House and Cottage only a short walk from the world-famous brilliant blue waters of Kealakekua Bay, where spinner dolphins and schools of tropical fish swim among the coral.
This area of The Big Island is known for Hawaiian culture and history and you'll feel as though you've stepped back in time to a tropical paradise.
Wake each morning to the scents of our lush tropical garden full of pineapple, bananas, hibiscus and fig. Listen to the birds as you drink a cup of local Kona coffee on the breezy lanai.
This is the Hawaii you've been dreaming of, a silhouette of palm trees against a glowing sunset with dolphins swimming in the deep blue ocean.
You'll leave your worries and stress behind as you swim, snorkel, and hike the day away, or maybe just nap to the sound of the waves.

Reviews From Our Wonderful Guests
Our Own Private Eden. We have stayed at Dolphin Bay House for 2 weeks every year for the past 5 years. It is an absolutely beautiful place. The whole area is what the world should be like. The pictures on the web site are not exactly accurate; the house is much more beautiful and roomy than the pictures portray.

Wonderful Dolphin Bay House. The house is beautiful and it is in a very good partially secluded location. Everybody loved the house—the beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms quite nice. The spacious kitchen has everything you need for involved cooking and the appliances all worked well. The house is very close to Manini Beach Park (two-minute walk), which is a great place for relaxing and snorkeling. We loved the Dolphin House and we highly recommend it.

Simply And Perfect Beautiful. There comes a time when I want a true vacation—one that is easy and beautiful, relaxing and restoring. Dolphin Bay House offers all that and more. One can enjoy seeing the deep blue ocean during the day and hear the waves while falling asleep at night.

About Your Hosts
Do you have questions about our home? Feel free to send a message.
After many years of enjoying the Kealakekua Bay area we were fortunate to find Dolphin Bay House and Cottage, which we purchased in 2003. We feel this corner of the world is truly paradise. This home was a dream come true for us and we derive much pleasure in sharing our beautiful home, grounds and neighborhood with you.
Why did we choose this home? The location is perfect for us. We wanted to be able to walk to the water to swim, snorkel and observe the beauty of the ever-changing ocean and sky. Plus, it is important to us to be off the beaten track in a small community.
What we love the most is being able to have our whole family here in a spacious home to enjoy this magical place. There is nothing like drinking local Kona coffee and eating fresh bananas, mangoes, papayas and pineapples in season. Being able to hop out of bed to take a sunrise walk to the beach is exhilarating. And then there are the sunset walks to cap off the day. Of course, snorkeling on those calm clear days is also pretty fantastic!
We're proud of the work we've done to make our home and cottage environmentally friendly through the use of solar power, environmentally friendly cleaning products, recycling and green landscaping practices.
We are pleased to share Dolphin Bay House and Cottage with you, as we believe you will enjoy the fabulous weather, beauty and this very special neighborhood as much as we do. We look forward to welcoming you!
