Manini Beach House Reviews

We normally don’t leave reviews, but this house made our vacation. The house was in a great location, very spacious (was very comfortable for 8 people), and well stocked. It had boogie boards, kayaks, beach chairs, towels, and a fully stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the perfect view of the ocean from the lanai and we were lucky enough to see dolphins. The back lanai was the perfect place to enjoy listening to the frogs and birds while surrounded by beautiful greenery. There was no traffic noise, just sounds of nature and the ocean waves. Snorkeling in the bay was amazing. Luke was great to deal with. We definitely will book this house again if we are fortunate enough to return.

This was a great place for us to stay and enjoy to the fullest. House has everything you need and wish for. Location is the best! You can enjoy ocean view while drinking coffee or preparing dinner. My favorite part was you get the ocean view in the front and garden view in the back. We watched dolphins play from the balcony while preparing breakfast. We saw turtles at the bay, enjoyed the most beautiful sunset which is steps away. Snorkeling is one of the best on the island by the monument. We had our scuba diving gear so we were able to enjoy the ocean even more. We loved the place and plan to come back. This will always be our dolphins house. Thank you for lifetime memories!

Close beach access just a few min walk away!! Made it really easy to get other go for the day or go back and fourth to the house through the day! Beautiful sunsets! Very relaxing!

We had a delightful family vacation here. The owner was helpful and responsive. Location is amazing, we saw dolphins in the Bay and loved being able to snorkel and swim right across the road. Beautiful garden, and lovely Hawaiian antiques among the decor. Property has a nice lay-out, but needs some repairs, and there's no way to keep geckos out (they're cute and friendly, but fair warning! ). The basement room had a mildew smell. Lots of boogie boards available, and kayaks (but the seats are broken and not comfortable). Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. We would recommend it!

The house was wonderful. The decor made you feel like you are in Hawaii. Snorkeling out front is excellent. The kitchen was very well equipped. Beautiful location. We hope to stay there again.

What could be better than waking up to a beautiful view of K- bay ? This home has everything you need to enjoy a sojourn in Hawaii. We’ve stayed in the bay several times, and loved this the most for its indoor/ outdoor walls & view. Hope to stay again! 🏖😊

View from deck is better than the pics. There is also a back deck with private garden view. Great snorkeling from the house. Super chill part of the island.

The house was just what we needed - clean and comfy, close to the water, great views. We used the kayaks a few times and that was a highlight of the trip - we'd have used them daily if the weather had been calmer. Really enjoyed the opportunity to get into the water right from the house. Owner was communicative and helpful. Thanks!

Embrace the experience of this property. We didn’t turn the tv on once. We kayaked and snorkeled and swam with the spinner dolphins. Loved this property and can’t wait to come back!!🦎🌴🌺🐠

Location was perfect and the view was amazing! We kayaked from the house to the Captain Cook monument, Lani the local kayak rental man down the street was a huge help getting us in the water! Close proximity to Two Step which is great for snorkeling and short distance drive to green sand beach, black sand beach and pebble beach. The home has no A/C but this seems to be typical of many Hawaii homes. It was warm, but we adapted. During the day we were out exploring the beautiful island and at night you would get a bit of a breeze off the water.

We LOVED this house! It isn't 'fancy' - but the location is unbeatable. We spent most of our time on the lawn or on the beach - or sitting in a tide pool (at low tide) with a beer. The snorkeling was better than on our booked snorkeling tours. The house is very well equipped and very comfortable. I would go back in a heartbeat!
