Photos and Description of the Hōnaunau vacation house rental

Honaunau Beach House in South Kona, with safe swimming for the entire family

Experience old Hawaii in this beautiful, beach house; just yards from Honaunau Bay and 2 steps near the City of Refuge. Walk across the street and swim, dive or snorkel, arguably, the nicest bay on the island. Honaunau is great place to canoe, paddle board, kayak or scuba dive and we have a boat launch. Enjoy the warm water, tropical fish, green sea turtles, dolphins and more. There is no charge for this dolphin show or swim, the dolphins seem to enjoy performing for and around the snorkelers and we can watch them from the lanai! It's pretty amazing to see dolphins spinning in the wild.

Our home is centrally located in South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Just 30 miles south of the airport and Kailua-Kona, out of the big city, but close enough to go for excursions. Volcano National Park is about 75 miles away and Hilo is just a little over 100. Captain Cook is 10 miles away and it offers, a variety of shopping, and dining options.

What a perfect romantic getaway for two, but it can accommodate more. The fully furnished kitchen has granite counters, a gas stove, a dishwasher and a full size refrigerator with an ice maker.

Enjoy the romantic, queen size canopy bed. Of course, the master bedroom has satellite TV available. The 2nd bedroom has ocean views, cool breezes and an office area with a tv to use as a monitor. There is a full bath house, toilet, bidet, sink & shower; in the yard with a variety of beach toys and a private back yard.

Enjoy tropical fruit from the yard, we have bananas, papayas, pineapples, coffee trees, tamarind and a turmeric garden with a few vegis mixed in

Pick up supplies as you come through Kona. This home is in such a great location that you might not want to drive anywhere. Maybe you would prefer to just relax on the lanai with a cocktail and watch the dolphins spinning in the bay and the sun set on the water. Take a stroll down to the white sand beach and let the children experience snorkeling in the safe, calm, shallow waters. Take a walk over to Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park, commonly known as the City of Refuge; and learn about the Hawaiian culture.

We were on a flight and Hawaiian Airlines played a video , Spotlight On the Big Island; highlighting the top things to do in Hawaii I was very excited to see the roof of our home in that video of Honaunau Bay. We know this is one of the best places on the islands and they obviously agree.

The bathhouse in the yard is stocked with snorkeling gear. It's great to walk back from the beach and shower outside, keeping the sand and water out of the house. We use solar power to energize this eco-friendly, green home.

This is a Hawaiian experience that even the locals want to enjoy.
