The property was beautiful, the room quaint and quiet and the gourmet breakfast was delicious! The yard is immaculate and includes a few beautiful wild chickens and even a mongoose, and lots of tropical fruit trees. Our room was extremely clean, and included a small porch to sit outside at night. Breakfast was served on the lanai by Janice, who... More

Janice and Steve provided a very private room just off the garage with a private porch with a beautiful view of their landscaped yard. You feel like you are in a private oasis when you are there. The breakfasts are beautiful as well as delicious! Even the take out for early risers was more than adequate!! One thing you might... More

The Areca Palms business card exhorts 'Great Breakfasts, Quiet Location, Comfortable Beds and Sage Advice'. It should instead exhort 'Fantastic Breakfasts, Perfect Location, Very Comfortable Beds, and Sage, Prudent Advice'. Added should be 'Available, but discrete and non-intrusive hosts, and great facilities'. Thank-you Janice and Steve!

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. They were interested in our itinerary for the day in order to help us to maximize our stay with them and we made a point of asking their advice almost every morning. The room was... More

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 had so much fun with you guys. We are both so pleased that you enjoyed our B&B so much. The facials by Janice are really growing in popularity. You kept extremely busy while you were here and we are pleased that we were able to host a wonderful stay here on the Big Island. Mahalo and we look forward... More
