The Manini Beach House is a recently built four bedroom oceanfront luxury home located on historic Kealekekua Bay on the Big Island of Hawaii. The shoreline in front of the house is a lava beach with excellent access for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. The spectacular views of Kealekekua Bay and the gentle Kona breezes blowing off the bay are your constant companions.

Make this fabulous home yours while you…

  • Hawaiian Volcano National Park – approximately 21/2 hours drive. For current volcanic activity check their website at:




  • Puuhohua O Honaunau National Historic Park (also called Place of Refuge) – 4 miles south of the the house. According to legend, ancient Hawaiians fleeing punishment sought refuge with the priests here.




  • Hulihee Palace – approximately 30 minutes drive at 75-5718 Alii Drive in Kailua -Kona. The palace was a summer getaway for Hawaiian Royalty in the middle 19th century. It contains a good collection of antiques, heirlooms and portraits. Phone: 329-1877



  • Kona Outdoor Circle Education Center – approximately 30 minutes drive at 76-6280 Kuakini Highway in Kailua-Kona. A small, very restful arboretum with mature examples of many of the palm trees grown in Kona. Phone: 329-6217



  • Kona Historical Society – approximately 20 minutes drive on Highway 11 at the south end of Kealakekua (look on your left as you are heading toward Kialua-Kona, just after you go through the traffic lights at Konawaena School Road). Interesting collection of materials and photos on the Kona coast from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.



  • Nani Mau Gardens – approximately 3 hours drive at 421 Makalika St., in Hilo. Over 20 acres of “floral theme park”, orchid greenhouse, waterfall, pond and Japanese Garden.

  • Kayak Rentals – there are several on the main highway in Kealakekua and Kainaliu. We like Kona Boys Kayaks on Highway 11 north of Kealakekua (on your right as you are heading into Kialua-Kona about 20-25 minutes from the house). In addition to kayak rental they also do guided tours and have scuba gear. 808.328.1234



  • Fair Wind & Hula Kai – a half day cruise on a 55 foot catamaran from Keauhou Bay to the Captain Cook monument for snorkeling. If you don’t feel like kayaking to the monument, this is another way to get there. The snorkeling is spectacular, the hamburgers are tasty, and the crew make the trip lots of fun.
