Why we would recommend this place? - Because of the large, neat garden - The immaculate rooms - The good equipment going from wifi to snorkeling gear But the thing which is really memorable about the stay are the owners - Janice...

Everything was clean and the breakfasts were flavorful & nutritious; prepared from many things grown on the estate. The hosts were knowledgeable of the area. They were always willing to help when we had our "tourist" questions. Plus, Janice does facials! The "yard" was beautiful. The location puts you in range of just about anything for day trips.

The Areca Palms Bed & Breakfast is a very good choice for the traveler on the go. It is located close to the highway, yet quiet and private. You can visit the main attractions up and down the coast, which are mostly an hour or two away, depending on traffic and the speed limit, then retreat to the comfort of... More

I stayed with a friend at the Areca Palms for 12 days and had a great experience. Janice and Steve were very kind and helpful.

We certainly enjoyed the fun and laughter you guys brought to the Breakfast table. We hope you have had an easy time adjusting to the seasonally cold Canadian weather. Janice is pleased that you mentioned the facial. She is staying quite busy with her customers. Hope to see you again soon. Mahalo More

Everything about the Areca Palms was absolutely delightful. Janice and Steve were instrumental in giving us tips and ideas for what to see and when to see it. The food was incredible, the room was clean and cozy, and the location was perfect. We stayed for 2 weeks, and found it central to all the best beaches, sites and restaurants.... More

We just spent two weeks at the Areca Palms B&B. Our room was the Blue Willow room. We used this location as our base since it is centrally located to all the beaches on the west coast. Also the B&B is only a two hour drive away from Hilo. The accommodations are excellent. Our room was comfortable and beautifully appointed.... More

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.

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.
