As you walk into the Dolphin Spirit House you are greeted with a breathtaking view of Kealakekua Bay. This prime location gives one the feeling that the pristine ocean is part of the back yard yet is above the bustle of the public beach so is both quiet and private. Read More
Kealakekua Bay which is just two minutes away is an underwater marine park and some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. Spinner dolphins frequently visit this beautiful area. It is an amazing site to see them frolicking from the huge lanai and comfort of this lovely house. In the winter it is common to see the humpback whales breaching, spouting or flapping their tails.
Every day swimming in these crystal clear waters is an adventure as you never know which of our marine friends will show up to play; dolphins, turtles, manta and spotted rays, octopus and more! It is an easy swim out to be with them or you can kayak or try stand up paddle board.
This house is surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens, designed by an award winning landscaper. The visual feast includes a continuous variety of colorful, fragrant flowers. The Hawaiian fruiting trees waiting for you to sample include bananas, papaya, mango, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, lemons, limes, star fruit and more.
The sunsets from the lanai are outstanding. Every evening is a gift of color. You will wake up in the morning to the symphonic song of the birds and go to sleep at night to the melodic sounds of the ocean.
Every room has an ocean view. All rooms come equipped with natural air conditioning courtesy of ocean breezes and a ceiling fan. This house has four large bedrooms, each accommodating one to two guests. A master suite, with a king size bed and private bath.
