Dolphin Bay Cottage comfortably accommodates 1-2 guests. This lovely cottage has everything you need: 1 bedroom, 1 full bath and a full kitchen. It is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood that is surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping.

Only 300 feet (a 2 minute walk) from the ocean and some of the world's most pristine waters at Kealakekua Bay! The Bay is a marine sanctuary that is home to pods of hawaiian spinner dolphins, turtles and other amazing marine life. The snorkeling is premier. Marvel at the dolphins and whales. Admire the graceful green sea turtles and go nose to nose with a rainbow of exotic fish. Allow yourself to relax and swim in the crystal clear waters of the Bay . . . practically at your doorstep.

Dolphin Bay Cottage is located in the Hawaiian village of Napo`opo`o. This area of the Big Island, strongly imbued with Hawaiian spirit of aloha, has retained the charm and quiet, easy pace of Old Hawaii. It is also a great location for a home base as you tour the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii.

  • 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.

  • A perfect place in a perfect location! Just steps away from the ocean. This adorable little bungalow will exceed all your expectations and surpass your needs. You can goto bed with the sound of the waves lapping against the shore...

    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!

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.
