We stayed here about 10 years ago, when the place was run by other innkeepers, and it was great. But the new owners are not keeping it up; altho the rooms were clean, everywhere else is piled with discarded junk. Holes in the stairs, etc. They are not controlling the domestic animals and since the rustic lodgings just have screens... More

We thoroughly enjoyed all of our stay at Lucky Farm B&B. The quirky coffee barn cottage surrounded by banana trees with its the private ‘outside shower’ was exactly what we were looking for as relaxing get-away-from-it-all time on the Big Island. We enjoyed Johnsie’s great breakfasts (with bags to take the leftover fruits for lunch!) and the music and commentary... More

OK so I plagiarized that from another review, but it gets right to the heart of what makes Lucky Farm praiseworthy. Yes, you need industrial-strength earplugs to sleep through the night, what with the cats pouncing on critters on the roof, branches scraping across the roof (the underside of the corrugated roofing panels is exposed to the room below, so...

We loved Captain Cook and this place is wonderful. You are basically staying on a big back porch among the banana leaves and serenaded by frogs (so not for those who need to sleep where it is totally quiet). The breakfast was wonderful (they grow all the fruits and the coffee) and the tour amazing. You get a real feel... More

Lucky farm is very good value for money and is a great place if you like a personalized experience in rustic settings. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgable. The breakfast is delicious, and the optional garden tour very interesting. They have coolers, beach towels and snorkeling gear for you to borrow for free. We spent the first two nights... More

Pomaika'i B and B is a fascinating working organic farm. Rooms are in the lush setting of myriad flowering and fruiting tropical trees and plants. Co-hosts Johnsie and J.P. will make your stay memorable. Johnsie is an amazing cook who prepares the most beautiful and delicious organic fruit tray we've ever seen or eaten. She was accommodating to both vegan... More

Reserve the Coffee Barn! You'll feel like your in the jungle! This isn't for the person looking for turndown service and movie. This is a working farm that also is a B&B. Comes with breakfast and a tour of the farm that features coffee, avocados, mangos, passion fruit and MUCH more! Owners are great and knowledgable!

My husband and I stayed at Lucky Farms for 4 nights in Feb 2014, and enjoyed every second. Synopsis in no particular order: - We enjoyed learning about the organic fruits growing on the trees (citris, passion, mango, papaya, bananas, coffee, mac nuts, others I don't know the names of) - We looked forward to the wonderful breakfasts - tailored...

We stayed at Lucky Farm for two days during our very first trip to Hawaii. First of all, I'd like to say that we really, thoroughly enjoyed this place and the people who run it; but be aware that it's not an ideal setting for everyone, especially the chintz and chablis set. If you don't want to be in close... More
