This was our first time staying at B&B and we are not disappointed at all. I don’t think you can get a personalized service like this at any resort. The B&B location is perfect and the property is very well maintained and beautiful. The site is centrally located so it was an easy short drive to beaches and Kona downtown....

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017

What a wonderful place to spend a week on the Kona side of Hawai'i. Dave and Wendi are the penultimate hosts; warm, gracious, accomodating, witty, and so very knowledgeable about their island paradise. This is really a little slice of heaven. The accomodations are flat out gorgeous, the food is extraordinary, and the aloha spirit pervades everything here. We felt...

The success of Honu Kai is surely not just it's good location, its beautiful grounds and landscaping, the friendly cats, and wildlife that is rampant on the property, or the excellent layout and lanai, but it's hosts who go out of their way to make your experience fantastic from start to finish. The breakfasts were great, the lanai layout is...
