Description from owner

Description

All individuals, both residents and visitors, arriving from out-of-state to Hawaii through June 30, 2020 are still subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. The mandate applies to all arrivals at state airports, including private and commercial aircrafts. All arriving passengers are required to initial and sign this order confirming they are aware of the 14-day quarantine and acknowledging they understand violating the order is a criminal offense, and subject to up to a $5,000 fine and/or a year imprisonment. The period of self-quarantine begins from the time of entry into the State and lasts 14 days or the duration of the person’s time in Hawaii, whichever is shorter.

Escape the hotel scene! Welcome to the "Pink Cottage". Hale Nai`a (Dolphin House) is your dream come true in paradise. You will appreciate the relative seclusion and it is perfect for celebrating that special occasion or a romantic getaway. Hale Nai`a unveils breathtaking views and allows you the opportunity to be outside from morning to night. 

If you plan to prepare your meals at home, this is the place for you! You can do so while soaking in the magnificent ocean view in the fully furnished outdoor kitchen with full size fridge, stove, sink, dishwasher, BBQ, coffee pot, microwave and a screened in gazebo for your dining pleasure. In addition, there is also an interior, fully equipped kitchen with ocean views, a full size fridge and stove with oven. 

Let the sound of the ocean waves lull you to sleep in your beautiful one bedroom o'hana with unobstructed ocean views that can accommodate up to 4 guests. There are ceiling fans in every room – even the bathroom. A comfy Cal King bed with memory foam topper awaits you as well as a pillow topper queen size sofa sleeper to accommodate extra guests or family members. Have an afternoon siesta in your hammock.

There is a full 4 piece bath indoors and an added bonus and to truly experience Hawaii there is an additional custom-built outdoor bamboo shower with hot water for your enjoyment.

Listen to the singing of the many songbirds as you leisurely sip your morning coffee/tea. Watch the dolphins as they swim by. Relax and unwind after a day of rejuvenating solitaire getaway adventure or nuzzle with a loved one watching a breathtaking Hawaiian sunset from your lanai with swaying palm and coconut trees framing your picturesque view. Star-gazing can be spectacular on the clear warm Hawaiian nights or a trip to Mauna Kea's observatory to marvel at the clear star swept sky is well worth the trip.

We also have available beach necessities including beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, sun-shade umbrella, and cooler – so no need to pack these items.

Hale Nai`a (Dolphin House) is located:

- 45 minutes south of Keahole, Kona International Airport
- 15 minutes to grocery stores, restaurants, markets
- Three miles to Pu`uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park
- Thirty minutes to Kailua-Kona
- 1.5 – 2 hour drive to Volcano National Park

Kealakekua Bay (Pathway to the Gods) is located on the Kona Coast, 12 miles South of Kailua-Kona and is only a short walk from your cottage. Manini Beach is truly a hidden gem of a beach a short 250 steps away with picnic tables, a small sand beach with shaded grassy areas. A perfect spot to unwind basking in the sun. If your are fortunate enough, you may have the opportunity to swim with turtles, mantas, spotted eagle rays and enjoy world class snorkeling with beautiful coral reef and an array of colorful tropical fish in an awesome under water protected marine sanctuary. Kealakekua Bay and Captain Cook monument are seen across the bay from Manini Beach where spinner dolphins frequent. This is also the historic bay where Captain Cook first landed in Hawaii in 1778 and the famous site of his Monument.

Historic Napoopoo Beach Park and Ke'ei Beach (good for surfing) are only minutes away.

The federal park Pu'uhonua O Honaunau, The City of Refuge, is a short drive to the south. There you will find a popular snorkeling spot named “Two Step” which is an easy access area for snorkeling or scuba diving. 
This area also has a public boat launch and a sand beach for the small children to swim in shallow waters. Another 10-minute drive will take you to Ho'okena Beach which is a black sand beach with great views, public facilities, camping, rental equipment and perfect for a picnic.

 The sound of the ocean waves will enchant you. Visiting during the months of November through March is an excellent time for watching humpback whales breech from your lanai. On occasion, you can hear their singing and tail slapping. The Hawaiian spinner dolphins frequent the bay all year and can be seen jumping and “spinning” in the pristine blue waters.

 Paradise awaits you! Please note: This is a non-smoking property indoor and outdoor. Smoking can be enjoyed steps away at the entrance to the property or the nearby beach park.
