The smell of saltwater hangs heavy in the air at Dolphin Manor, where you can stare out at the sparkling sea and hear the waves crashing along the Big Islands rocky west coast from the wrap-around lanai of this stunning five bedroom, six bath estate. This private, gated plantation-style property oozes old world charm, but has all the modern conveniences that you crave. Theres no shortage of rooms with a view inside the home, and the backyard pool and spa provide sought after outdoor space from which to enjoy the island breezes and ample sunshine that Kailua-Kona is known for.
Double doors lead into the foyer, where youre greeted by vaulted ceilings and a grand staircase which flows directly into the great room. The fully renovated kitchen, with its top of the line stainless steel appliances and dual islands, are a chefs dream. Whip up your familys favorite meal on the gas cooktop while gazing out at the endless Pacific Ocean. Just adjacent to the kitchen, there is a spacious laundry room with dual washer/dryers, which could also serve as additional pantry space should you need it. Just beyond the dining table with seating for eight, the bright living room has lots of space to gather. The two larger sofas not only provide a comfortable spot from which to enjoy the view or to curl up with a book plucked from the built-in bookshelves, but they also transform into sleeper sofas to accommodate additional guests. The bright blue of the ocean is put on full display through the windows and sliding glass door that leads out to the wrap-around lanai and the backyard beyond. Relax with an ice-cold drink on the poolside loungers as you take in the sights and sounds of the the gold coast. Take a dip in the pool, soak in the spa, or try your hand at a grilled local dish on the provided BBQ. The ground floor of Dolphin Manor also boasts an air conditioned media room with comfy seating and a flat-screen TV, a private office so you can get some work done, and a full-size hall bathroom.
Your entire extended family can join you in paradise when you stay at Dolphin Manor, as this property sleeps up to 18 guests! Wake up to never-ending ocean views from the king-size bed of the large master bedroom. Glass sliders open up the room to the wrap-around lanai, where you can enjoy your morning coffee or pick out the constellations in the sky at night. The master also has a large flat-screen TV and its own private ensuite, with dual sinks, a soaking tub,and a walk-in shower. Two of the upstairs guest bedrooms are ocean-facing and have lanai access, king-size beds, and ensuites, including one with a soaking tub. While the other two bedrooms dont have ocean views, they do have lanai access, king-size beds, ensuites, and an office area. All bedrooms have air conditioning and flat-screen TVs.
There is space in front of the home to park up to four vehicles, so rent a car and explore the Big Island! Visit world-class beaches like Makalawena or Hapuna, both in the Kailua-Kona region. If youre up for a day trip, make the drive to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where Kilauea has been actively erupting since 1983 and isnt expected to stop anytime soon. You can get a glimpse of this incredible natural phenomenon by booking a tour via boat or helicopter, or if you prefer to stay on land, you can hike over the rugged terrain towards the lava flow. The lengthy drive is worth this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
