Spacious and comfy bedroom and NO coqui frogs whatsoever!!! Trina and Shai are knowledgeable, warm and generous. Breakfast is a banquet of creative, tasty, generous portions of delicious treats. Great panoramic view of Kona and the ocean from the dining area. If you like a private retreat in a lush tropical garden - this will be the place for you.

I hadn't taken a vacation that did not involve visiting family on the East Coast in ten years. Lots of crazy pressure to have a good time!

We spent a week at the Lilikoi Inn and it was fantastic. We were so happy we decided to spend our entire trip there rather than going with half on the Kona side and half on the Hilo side. The Lilikoi is very well located with easy day trips to Waipio Valley, Kilauea, and tons of beaches. It was very... More

If you like being in the midst of T-Shirt shops, lots of people, cars and the like, stay in the town of Kailua. If you have lots of $$$ and like a very posh, beautiful, sleek surrounding, go to the Four Seasons...way out of town. But if you would like a unique, authentic Hawaiian experience, stay at the Lilikoi Inn.... More

I stayed over a month at the Inn. I showed up as a stranger from the mainland, and left as family. I will never stay anywhere else on the Big Island. Go hungry, because Shai doesn't know the meaning of a small portion, and his food is so delicious...... Trina is delightful and a great conversationalist. All of this along... More

Trina and Shai were wonderful hosts in their comfortable B&B in lush upcountry Big Island Hawaii. We spent 6 days there while visiting family in Holualoa, and would be happy to return. Our room was spacious, the shower hot, the soap fragrant, and the cool, quiet nights ideal for sleeping. Shai prepared superb breakfasts largely from his own produce (love... More

Spent three nights at this fabulous inn. Lush tropical setting, fabulous views, delicious breakfasts, large spacious room, very quiet. Loved sitting around and talking to the other quests in the evening, much better than the large resort experience. Trina and Shai have created a warm and peaceful atmosphere, one we hope to return to very soon.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Lilikoi Inn in April. Shai and Trina were excellent hosts and welcomed me into their home with open arms. Every morning Shai makes a delicious breakfast with fresh organic ingredients sourced from the farm. They also grow and roast their own coffee that is served with fruit, frittatas, fresh baked banana bread,... More

Location, views and setting are absolutely crucial to enjoying a b&b. Staying at the Lilikoi Inn is a real treat. There is no way to not know you are staying in a beautiful house, with an amazing patio/open living area/eating area with amazing views of the Kona coastline, surrounded by lush vegetation. It is an incredibly tropical location and so... More
