About This Listing
Rent 1 room for $150/night or entire 4 bedroom house for $500/night.
You walk into Dolphin Spirit House and are greeted with a breath taking view of Kealakekua Bay. This house is surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping, designed by an award winning landscaper. The visual feast includes colorful, fragrant flowers and fruiting trees.
You wake up in the morning to the sound of the birds singing and look out over the bay into the beautiful, healing waters and often times see the spinner dolphins frolicking. In the winter, you can also see whales breaching or guiding their calves in migration. In the evening you can enjoy the magnificent sunsets from the big, comfortable lanai, and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean at night.
You feel as if you have entered a tranquil, spiritual retreat, because the owners of this house lived in an Ashram for thirty years and build it with sacred geometry and fung shui. It is quiet and peaceful, comfortable and homey with everything you would need to feel at home, away from home. This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy paradise.
Just minutes to world-class water activities such as snorkeling, diving, kayaking, stand-up paddle board, surfing and swimming. Every day the ocean is different, you never know which of your marine friends will show up to play; dolphins, manta rays, turtles, awesome colorful fish, octopus and more!

The house of Swarn is trully beautiful, and the view breathtaking! The place is well located, close to the bay for swimming and to the grocery shops. We didn't meet Swarn but her friends took really good care of us! Thanks Swarn (and Marlien and Andy).
Swarn's place is amazing; a nice tranquil outcropping on a lovely rise above a breath taking view of Kealakekua bay; a few minutes drive from some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island. Had a great stay; Heather was a gracious host and took care of every imaginable need. Found some really great places to eat nearby, not including the yummy fruit hanging on the trees in the backyard. Overall great stay. Greatest way imaginable to kickoff my stay on the Big Island!
Two tips: one, download a map before you drive there, my gps was going haywire and two, mosquito repellent; my blood doesn't seem appealing to the buggers, so it's not a personal concern, but I did see quite a few at the beach nearby. Aloha!
We truly enjoyed our visit at Swarns faboulus house.
We are still on the Hawaian Islands, but I am quite shure our best days of our holliday was at Kealakekus bay. Waking up with a faboulus view and take a morning swim with the dolpins really sets the mood for the day.
We really enjoyed our time here! Swarn was a very welcoming host and the home is great. We cooked in the well-stocked kitchen one evening, enjoyed the outdoor shower, and of course, the views from the lanai were unforgettable!
It was pretty steep to get there, but it's worth the view! A really peaceful place with spectacular sunsets and a lovely host. Swarn even bought muffins and we enjoyed these with fruits and coffee for breakfast on the terrace.Everything was very straightforward, which we very much appreciated.
