My husband and I stayed at this delightful bed and breakfast in January for 5 nights and highly recommend it. Janice and Steve were well-informed and patient hosts with tons of "inside" information. Our flight was delayed by 4 hours so instead of arriving by 7 pm, it was almost 11 by the time we made our way to the... More

This lovely garden B & B is located above the Kona hwy a few miles west of the town of Kona near the trail-head to Captain Cook’s Monument in a somewhat rural neighborhood. Due to an obstructed view the ocean is not visible from the inn. A number of interesting sites are nearby such as the trail-head down to the... More

We do remember these particular guests but they do have a few things incorrect about our offering. We do have an ocean view from our Guest Lanai as well as a couple of our rooms. These guests were staying in our Lanai Room which overlooks the gardens. Breakfast is served at 8AM daily. The conversations that people have at breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Rose Room over the New Year, and we had a wonderful time. Janice and Steve are the most welcoming, warm, and friendly hosts, and they love to chat and get to know each guest. Breakfast each morning is a real treat, with fresh fruit, smoothies, something special from the kitchen, and great company... More

What an amazing B&B! The beautiful and spacious house and garden themselves are magnificent, but matched with genial and knowledgeable hosts Janice and Steve, our stay at Areca Palms was a highlight of our visit to the Big Island. Janice's breakfasts fortified us for the day's sightseeing - her imagination and the effort she put into providing something deliciously different... More

Last month's stay at Areca Palms was excellent. The hosts were friendly and went out of their way to help make our a stay a good one. This was especially true with regard to their help in getting us a last minute reservation for the manta ray tour. Breakfasts were marvelous, the place impeccably clean, and the grounds surrounding us... More

"Areca Palms" refers to the trees that define the boundaries of this 1+ acre bed and breakfast. Nestled along the west coast of the big island of Hawaii, you can enjoy a view of the Pacific Ocean from the veranda where Janice serves a delicious Hawaiian breakfast. She will even "adapt" it to your particular tastes, mine being fruit. Both... More
