As my wife and I were driving into Captain Cook and up to the Inn, we commented that it felt like coming home. Erin and Ken are wonderful hosts and we cannot say enough wonderful things about the Luana Inn. The location is "out of the way" enough that you can relax in the peace and quiet of the Inn... More

There's a lot to like about the Luana Inn. Our room was good sized, clean, and tastefully decorated. Breakfasts were superb; if you're lucky, you'll get to taste Ken's world class French Toast. The pool area is lovely, overlooking the ocean and sunset. It also has a grill and tables to eat at, a popular choice with the guests. Ken... More

You can't hope for nicer hosts than Ken and Erin. Very comfortable accommodations with a large container of Kona coffee ground and ready in your room when you are. Great breakfast between 8 and 9. A couple minutes downhill by car for easy access to two of the best snorkeling sites in the islands. Saw the spinning dolphins. A safe,... More

This is our 5th time staying at Luana Inn and we are already planning next year. The hosts are warm and welcoming, flexible, and engaging. The breakfasts are yummy. It's away from the hubbub and noise of the street on the bay, but close enough for early dawn or evening sunset bay visits where we've frequently seen spinner dolphins and... More

If you are looking for an out of the way, quiet place to stay on the Big Island, this is the one. There is a great view of the ocean, easy access to beaches and snorkeling, and nice restaurants within an easy drive drive. The hosts, Ken and Erin, are very warm and accommodating. They make killer breakfasts with fresh... More

While staying at our next location I remembered why I enjoy staying at smaller more intimate accommodations. One can choose to engage with the other guests or one can remain detached. Plus it's a quiet beautiful spot that overlooks the bay. The neighbors rooster helps get you started in the morning. :) which is great because you certainly don't want... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the luana inn, a very calm and relaxing place. We came here with our 7 month old baby and the hosts were just wonderful and very accomodating with the baby! We will be back! Thank you for a great introduction to Hawaiis big island!

The inn met our needs very nicely. It's quiet with decent-sized rooms, a real breakfast cooked by the innkeepers, and a pool and hot tub that look out on a spectacular view of the bay -- looking at the sunset from there is worth the price of admission. We had a really lovely time with this place as our base... More

We stayed for 4 nights and have no complaints. Great location: few minutes from the main Captain Cook area and very close proximity to great activities-(two step, captain cook trail, kealakekua bay). The rooms are spotless, including the bathrooms. Great view for sunset and great breakfast every am with super kind, helpful hosts. For sure, we will stay here again!... More

This modern kitchenette makes a great base for exploring the Kona area. We went to the Kona Festival, down to shore to snorkel, swim and watch the dolphins. The Hawaiian Temples and historic sites were fascinating too.
