Reasonably priced and very nice B&B, the owners are attentive and very pleasant. The room we had (Rose room) was large and very comfortable, the owners clean the rooms daily. This is not a typical cheap breakfast served up, Janice is a terrific cook!!! I can't imagine a better value in the Kona area, thanks Janice & Steve!!!!!!

When we first arrived, we met up with Steve, one of the hosts. He was not pleased to see us because he was expecting us to arrive later in the evening. Instead, we arrived at 4:00, during normal check-in times. He was rather surly and told us to take off our shoes before entering. He led us to the Garden... More

This review is true. These guests had emailed us to tell us that they would be arriving after 6PM. The expectation they set allowed me more time to work on yard projects where I get quite dirty. I was surprised when they arrived as I hadn't had a chance to air their room or get cleaned up. My "gruff" reply... More

Spent our entire week on the Big Island here. It's very clear that Janice and Steve Glass love what they do - it shows in the accommodations, the food, and their own earnest desire to help you have a great time. Everything you read about the breakfasts is true: they are healthy, substantial, and simply beautiful to just look at!... More

This B & B is situated in a beautiful spot in a quiet residential area above Captain Cook. The accommodation is spacious and excellent, with a lanai on which one can enjoy the superb sunsets. It is very well situated for exploring the Kona coast and Steve provided excellent advice on places to snorkel, as well as equipment, cool boxes... More

What more could you ask for in a B&B? A lovely home, clean, well managed, comfortable bed, wonderful breakfast. Good advice about local attractions and places to eat. Very comfortable. Steve, our host, spent time talking with us at breakfast. He took care of everything.

Really a lovely B&B in Captain Cook. The breakfast was incredible and its really ideally located to visit captain cook. The place, is great, and clean...The only warning for those wanting total privacy is that you are in the middle of these people's house so you run into them a lot...but they are wonderful and it was a great stay...

We spent three nights at this B & B set in beautiful surroundings of palm trees and green grass. The road to the house is not easy to find, but our GPS was helpful. The location was convenient to several sites in the area. We were met by the owners, Janice and Steve, who always were excellent sources of information... More

Areca Palms is a lovely home on a steep street about an hour south of the airport. The grounds were very nicely maintained and the common areas in the home were nicely appointed. We mostly sat out on the large lanai when we were there. The breakfasts were nicely presented and plentiful. We enjoyed the variety of fresh fruits. The... More

We expected the great food and comfortable lodging which we received. The excellent service and island advice Steve and Janice provided greatly added to the quality of our experiences during our first trip to Hawaii. I would highly recommend Areca Palms.
