Our Dolphin Oceanfront cottage is located in a remote area on The Big Island of Hawaii known as Kehena Beach. The Dolphin ocean front cottage is across the street from Kehena Beach in one of the most beautiful places on the planet - the famous 'Red Road' in Puna. It is in a prime location - 10 minutes from the active Kalapana lava flow and < 1 hr to Volcanoes National Park - home of Kilauea and the periodic lava flows just a short distance from us. There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geo-thermically heated ponds, snorkeling, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska. You can often see breaching whales out in the water from our lanai, just several yards off our beautiful coast - in the Kehena Beach area.

There are also Hawaiian jungles, tropical rain forests, beautiful coastal views, geo-thermically heated ponds, snorkeling, whale watching w/ dolphins that migrate to the warm Hawaiian waters from Alaska. You can often see breaching whales out in the water from our lanai, just several yards off our beautiful coast - in the Kehena Beach area. Many of my tenants have told me that they were able to swim w/ the dolphins as well - and you can too at the world famous 'Kehena Black Sand Beach' ! This is the place for water lovers - you should see the spectacular view from the lanai. Literally, you will see coconut trees swaying w/ the trade winds against a blue pacific ocean backdrop. We also have the best and safest snorkeling grounds just down the road in the Kapoho Tide pools? You can easily navigate all of these places from our cabin at Kehena Beach, it has come to be a very popular spot 'right in the center of all of these attractions'. For those of you who are seeking night time entertainment, check out 'Uncles Outdoor Hawaii Bar' if you want to sip a beer, listen to live Hawaiian music, eat great food and enjoy a farmers market at the same time. This spacious and comfortable, high ceiling cottage has one bedroom w/ queen bed, full bath, living/dining area w/ food prep area includes blender/coffee w/ coffee maker (MW & toaster oven in utility room 15 ft. from Dolphin Cottage) and a Hawaiian rock BBQ outside situated in a tropical garden w/ ocean view. If you require a full kitchen, please refer to the Whale House that has a fully equipped kitchen. It can't get much better than this. We have a laundry - utility room as well w/ sink. Soap is available. It can sleep up to 4 using the sofa bed ( size of double bed) or full sized floor mattress Futon. This cottage is just 8 miles from Pohoiki Point (surfing area) and the famous Kapoho snorkeling waters are also near by and remain popular snorkeling, surfing and swimming areas. Compare our rates to those in Kapoho - you will love our place. Volcanoes National Park is < 1hr drive from the cottage where you can see Kilauea Caldera and walk through Thurstons Lava Tube. You will love Kehena Beach in the Puna District of Hawaii. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HAWAII TAX I.D. W52008989-01More

We enjoyed our stay at the cute and spacious violet colored Dolphin Cottage. It was nicer inside than we had expected and had everything we needed. The lanai was perfect for sitting on and listening to the sounds of the ocean across the street. So...More

Location, location, location! Stayed here 2 nights in early December.  Wish it could have been longer.  The Dolphin Cottage was charming.  Perfect place to explore Kapoho Tidepools, lava flows and Pahoa town.  It's right in the middle of the rainforest, across from a beach and...More

Very comfortable cottage right across the street from the ocean. We were only there for 15 hours, but perfect for our night before viewing the lava flowing into the ocean.

We are happy to hear that our tenants are enjoying the cottages. We have made some very nice upgrades lately and really make this spot a great value.

Upon opening the door I was pleased to see a lovely 'cottage' - just like it said!! It was clean, furnished and decorated nicely with a perfect patio for two looking out to the ocean. Not much traffic but many frogs and ocean sounds made...More

About the neighbourhood
Kehena Beach is a remote but beautiful & quiet coastal community near the beach, Kapoho Tide Pools, Ahalanue Warm Ponds, Pohoiki Point and the Kalapana lava fields (a great hiking area). The ocean is across the street and there are several coconut trees in front of the cottage. It is a very green area w/ roads that go through tunnels of trees.
How to get there
***DIRECTIONS FROM THE AIRPORT*** You can type in 'Kehena Beach Cottages' on Google maps as well! When leaving the Hilo airport, turn left at light (a gas station is at the corner across street). Drive all the way through Hilo past the Walmart on the left and keep going out of town until you reach the KEAAU PAHOA BYPASS RD/HI-130 S (turn left on to it). Continue to follow HI-130 South and you will see Pahoa on your right. Keep going straight past it for 9 miles down the hill towards the ocean. Just right after the church, make a left on Route 137, then immediately turn right down the hill to the stop sign. Turn left on KALAPANA - KAPOHO RD and go straight [exactly 3.1 miles] until you reach the cottages on your left.
