Steps to the ocean at Manini Beach at Kealakekua Bay! Konakays

Vacation home in Captain Cook with kitchen and balcony
Kealakekua Bay (which means Pathway to the Gods) has one of the Big Island's most spectacular coral reefs. Because it is a Marine Life Sanctuary, the fish are plentiful and swarm over the well developed reef that slopes from the shores into the ocean. Spinner dolphins, Manta Rays, and Green Sea turtles are commonly seen resting in the Bay. Humpback Whales visit in the winter season from January to March. The reefs make this area an underwater showcase, so come enjoy a swim or snorkel, and dive into some of the worlds most pristine waters, all well within walking distance from the house. Often there is an opportunity to swim with the plentiful spinner dolphins, right in the bay.

4/5 Good

Value in paradise
Not fancy but very functional. 3 minute walk to great snorkeling and local park. It is hot inside during the day but lots of fans and windows make it bearable. Great location for quiet people that want to explore more and sit around less.
Stayed 35 nights in Nov 2021

5/5 Excellent

Love staying at Kona Kay’s
It had everything we needed and loved being able to walk a block or so away to the beach to watch the sunset every evening! Kay is a generous and wonderful host who is available but gives you your privacy. Loved the fruit stand nearby and her delicious mango cheesecake, banana bread, macadamia nuts and other treats! The best tangerines too! I agree with one of the other reviews about the nice shower head that’s like a massage. Thank you Kay!!

4/5 Good

Easy living vacation.
Kay, her downstairs tenants, friends, and neighbors were welcoming and gracious. We felt safe and relaxed at her cozy rental apartment. Walking down to the kayak rental was a breeze. Not fancy, just fabulous! Thank you.

5/5 Excellent

Kay is great
Very pleased with our stay. Place was just as described. We went staright there from our flight and it was getting late. Not much open late. Island time. Kay brought us a box of goodies to make it through. Very nice. She was around when we needed her, but wasnt intrusive in the slightest. Will definitely stay again. Thank you.

5/5 Excellent

Fun Honaunua Bay location
Great property on the Kona side of the Big Island in Cpt Cook, Honaunua Bay. Away from noisy tourist area and feels secluded, which made it great for relaxing. Location is near Pu'uhonua O Hōnaunau and several other amazing beach fronts. The best one was Ke'Ei Beach, with calms waves and black/white sand, which is walking distance. Host was generous and welcoming. Enjoyed the delicious island coffee, nuts, fruit, and the beautiful lei flowers from her store. Gave us a great experience and made our first family and first Big Island trip one to remember!
