I was lucky to stay here for three weeks and nearly cried when leaving.
Krista was exceedingly helpful, cheerful, and wonderful.
I can't wait for an excuse to return!
Dolphin Bay Cottage is a lovely quaint open concept hideaway tucked amongst lush flowering trees and shrubs that delight the eye. The location is superb. Only a two minute walk past scented plumeria bushes to the crystal clear waters of Kealakekua Bay where we snorkelled with a multitude of irridescent colored fish that combed the coral reefs. Another day we rented a double kayak just down the road and paddled to Capt. Cook Monument on the other side of the bay where we encountered a pod of playful dolphins. It took a few minutes to drive down the road to the next bay at The Place of Refuge which was fascinating. We saw a rare Monk Seal languishing on the sand of an ancient village.
A truly magical and beautiful place to relax and rejuvenate.
Thank you Martha and Leonard for sharing this wonderful place.
About the Host, Martha
We love being able to share Dolphin Bay Cottage with travelers from all over the world who find their way to this magical place of outstanding beauty. We think you will enjoy the fabulous water, weather, lush vegetation, friendly folks and beauty of this very special neighborhood as much as we do.
Imagine how we delighted we are to be able to hop out of bed to take a sunrise walk to the beach or a sunset walk to cap off the day. Of course being able to easily snorkel anytime is also pretty fantastic! We feel this corner of the world is truly paradise.
