About Elizabeth Kilpatrick

Steve and Elizabeth built Manini Point House in 2005 because "We love the Big Island and wanted to build a home where couples and families can relax and enjoy precious moments together and know that they are in paradise. Our extended family often visits us in Hawaii and they look forward to their stay at Manini Point House. We live on Konacopia Farm about 10 minutes away, and are happy to take our Manini Point House guests on a tour of this special Organic Farm.

Elizabeth Kilpatrick purchased this house in 2005

Why Elizabeth Kilpatrick chose Kona Coast

Manini Point House is just 200' from lovely Manini Beach at Kealakekua Bay. K Bay and the surrounding area is a Hawaiian treasure. Manini Point House is located in a little village community and the neighborhood gives you an opportunity to visit with friendly local people as well as folks visiting from around the world. Learn about the Hawaiian culture while visiting historical sites including Puuhonua O Honaunau, Hawaii's national park, just 4 miles away. If you are looking for an alternative to a generic resort for your holiday, Manini Point House offers the opportunity for an authentic Hawaiian experience in a beautiful part of the Big Island. In K Bay, you will be snorkeling and swimming with reef fish, dolphins, and seasonal whales. Take a kayak tour across K Bay to Captain Cook monument to swim with dolphins. Manini Beach is a relaxing, very special place to spend quality time alone, or with family and friends. Manini Point House at K Bay is a place you will enjoy and remember, and know that you made the right choice.

What makes this house unique

This open, beautiful home has a large gourmet kitchen and lanai so families can cook, eat and relax together. Everyone will want to sit down to a meal on the lanai. The outside and inside join together. Enjoy the Bali Hut for a few contemplative moments and the outdoor shower after a day at the beach. Care for a game of pingpong?

great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly beautiful house in a great location. Very near a small beach area with decent snorkeling, it's only a 4 mile drive to Two-Step, at the Place of Refuge, which is a truly astounding place to snorkel. It also is very conveniently located by a kayak rental place with which one can kayak to the Captain Cook Monument, another excellent place to snorkel. The house has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a large lanai, and beautiful wood floors. The kitchen is very well equipped and the lanai is a very relaxing place. Having a barbecue is another nice touch.

Best vacation house in Manini Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this ideally located house for a week. We enjoyed watching the geckos and relaxing on the lanai listening to the rain. We swam, snorkeled, and kayaked in Kealakekua Bay, visited other nearby beaches, and were invited for a wonderful tour of Elizabeth's and Steve's Konacopia Farm. Our generous hosts were the greatest guides and shared many of their favorite place to visit. We can't wait to return!

we'll be back.

we had a heavenly stay. minutes away from Rufus and the kayak crew in the little bay to the south, a couple more minutes away to snorkeling at Manini Beach (truly a beautiful, serene spot), fresh mangos falling on our side of the fence from the tree next door, resident (outdoor) cutest green and aqua geckos, and perhaps best of all, being in the midst of spinner dolphins --- that one is just beyond words.

the house was beautiful and comfortable, exactly as described --- clean and spacious, perfectly situated. the upstairs great room master suite was terrific --- lit and ventilated by windows on all sides, a deck for sunset watching. once I knew what to look for, I could see dolphins from our bedroom. the lanai with the huge open sliding doors brought the outside in.

the kitchen is very well equipped --- more pots that I have at home! hard to think of anything wanting....

Wonderful home has everything required and lots more

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the Manini Point House for a ten day vacation. It was perfect in many ways. It's spacious and beautifully constructed, with a big lanai that opens to the shared living room and kitchen area. The view from the top floor is spectacular and you can hear the waves from nearby Kealakekua Bay constantly. It's a quick walk to snorkel and kayak spots and a lovely waterside park, especially good for small children. The owners are very accessible and helpful. Everything you might need for cooking (or making tropical cocktails!) is available, even a waffle iron. The garden area is lovely. Nearby neighbors are friendly and quiet at night. It's a bit of a windy drive, 20 mins., to the main road for shopping or restaurants but the house is so lovely and comfortable inside and out that we didn't really like to leave as long as we had what we needed. The owners supplied a wonderful fruit basket upon arrival. Highly recommended.

This house is truly as pictured. The hosts have thought of everything, there are even hampers in the closets for your dirty laundry. If there is a kitchen gadget missing in this kitchen, you don't need it. Gorgeous woodwork throughout the house, lots of Balinese furniture. Beds are comfortable. Very helpful binder full of info about local activities/tours. restaurants, recycling, etc.

Easy (even for this beginner) snorkeling access right at Manini Beach. There isn't a lot of sand as one might expect at a beach, but a large grassy area. Kayak (available for rental right next door) over to Captain Cook Monument for some of the best snorkeling on the island.

We went to Volcanoes National Park and Two Step Beach (more easy access snorkeling) from Manini House. It was our second house on our Big Island vacation, so we'd hit some other spots earlier. It's such a beautiful setting, it was easy to just hang out right there.

I would strongly recommend a car. This lovely home is off the beaten path. The roads to get there are narrow and curvy in some spots.

All communications with Elizabeth were prompt and clear.

There is plenty to do on the Big Island! You will love learning about Hawaiian culture by visiting Puuhonua O Honaunau, one of the many historical sites with hiking trails and a gorgeous picnic area, or hiking to Captain Cook monument. What can be more enjoyable than swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving, or horseback riding in Waimea or golfing in Kailua Kona, charter fishing, shopping for local organic produce at Farmers' Markets? Visit Volcano National Park, see the waterfalls on the windward side, hike on green and black sands beaches at South Point. Visit Mauna Kea observatory. Zipline in Hawi or Hilo! Take a walk on the wild side with a helicopter view of the Volcano flows, waterfalls, snow on Mauna Kea, undeveloped landscape--the Big Island's gorgeous scenery! Or relax at Manini Point House, sip a cup of organic Kona coffee and walk to the bay for a swim with the dolphins! You will know that you are in Paradise!
