Our family of 10 (including two toddlers) loved the Dolphin House. As mentioned in other reviews, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need, and more. Check-in was smooth with the information provided by property manager Michelle, but the crib rental company could not reach her for access to deliver and pick up the two cribs we rented. We lost internet the last 2 days and couldn't reach Michelle for help. These were minor problems that did not spoil our enjoyment of the house, the pool, and the ocean crashing outside on the rocks. We visited the Keiki beach with our little ones, and it was perfect for floating in warm, clear water. We saw sea turtles who were taking a snack break on the rocks, eating seaweed. Some of our braver family members jumped off the rocks into the sea and had a blast. The A/C was a must for comfortable sleeping. Most of us received numerous mosquito bites, so make sure to arm yourselves with repellent spray. We cooked most meals in the house after visiting Costco for groceries. The ice machine in the bar area was a lifesaver! We were so fortunate to stay in this wonderful place.

Our stay was absolutely perfect for our family of 11. The home is amazing, with all the right amenities, including every imaginable water toy! Please don't go food shopping at Costco or grocery store until you've checked the kitchen, as there are many pantry staples already there, including a few items left in the refrigerator. We spent most of our time at Dolphin House, as the pool is perfect. Lastly, be cautious of the tile floors, as they are slippery when wet. We will definitely return!

We had a hard time communicating with Mr. Ghaskin. We ended up going to the estate without a code. The security guard had our name and we provided him with identification so he gave us a code. The house is beautiful! It was exactly what we wanted to have for our 50th anniversary vacation. We had everything we needed at the house. The view was breathtaking, we spent every breakfast eating out by the pool watching the waves crashing on the lava rocks. People all up and down our little area came out to the rocks to watch the amazing sunsets in the evenings. It was definitely paradise. Unfortunately my husband had a small stroke 3 days after we arrived. He spent the next 5 days in the hospital at Honolulu having surgery. After a couple of days the kids were able to feel ok about experiencing all the adventures on the island. My husband and I greatly enjoyed just sitting on the deck upstairs in our bedroom listening to the waves break on the rocks and feeling the ocean breeze. A great time was had by all.

Fantastic location. Perfect for a group of 10 with ages ranging from 1 month to 79. Very clean and comes with a completely stocked kitchen.

This property is so much better than the listing description! My family of nine had a fabulous time in this lovely and very spacious home. The kitchen had everything you need to cook at home. This property is in a gated community with security. We felt like we were in a resort with this house. My grandchildren loved the pool and there is easy walking access to a beach that is suitable for children. Beautiful sunsets from the lanai. Owner quickly responded when I had questions. I will recommend this home to my family and friends!

Best setting on the island! Not only are you directly on the ocean in a safe and beautiful neighborhood, but within walking distance of Kona. Owner was very responsive: televisions were not hooked up upon arrival but he had them working within one hour. House was very well stocked. Just one suggestion: A railing to assist going into and coming out of the pool would be appreciated by your older guests. :-). This was our second booking here and we sure hope it won't be our last!! Thank you!

Our group of 7 adults stayed at Dolphin House for a week in February 2022. It was a wonderful experience. The house is in a quiet gated neighborhood of multi-million dollar waterfront homes. The location is close to Kailua-Kona and its shops and restaurants, but also to groceries, Target and other conveniences. The house itself is simply great. It is very nicely and comfortably furnished. Every place is bright. The master suite is large, with a huge second floor balcony overlooking the ocean. The two inside guestrooms (inside the main house, that is) are large and share their own sitting area. There is also a large and comfortable outside suite with a separate entrance. There is a bar-game room stocked with an ice maker and lots of board games. There are plenty of linens and towels. In fact, the whole house, especially the kitchen, is well stocked and supplied. There are extra propane tanks for the barbeque, beach chairs and umbrellas, body boards, etc. the patio is spacious with a nice large granite table and lots of lounging chairs. Beaches in Hawaii are public, so there is a public walkway between the house and the water, but we liked it. It is narrow and sort of meanders around the lava rocks. We had nothing negative to report and would stay again in a heart-beat.
