My husband and I stayed here on very short notice (split decision to come to Hawaii) and we had an absolutely fantastic time staying at Luana Inn. Ken and Erin were very helpful and provided some great tips on things to do / places to eat etc. The breakfast was homemade and delicious/fresh every day. We met some other wonderful... More

We stayed for a week May 4-11, 2015 and found it a great base to explore the south and west of the island. Our room was comfortable and quiet, and the breakfasts were terrific. Our hosts recommended places to eat in the evening, all of which were excellent. Very relaxing place to stay.

We had such an amazing stay at the Luana Inn with Ken and Erin! They were so incredibly welcoming and provided us with excellent information about the island. We stayed for 7 nights and thought the locations was perfect for exploring the island and outdoor activities (and super closeby is awesome snorkeling!). About 20 minute drive from downtown Kona and... More

Charming accommodation amidst beautiful surroundings. We had the Alaula room which is in an outbuilding away from the main house. If you prefer some privacy and a more spacious room, this is perfect. Grounds were gorgeous with tropical plants and flowers. Breakfasts were delicious and filling home cooked by the hosts. The fresh fruit was out of this world. The... More

Our 7 day stay, April 14 - 20, 2015, was great. We found the location perfect as a base from which to travel to Volcanoes Nat'l Park, South Point, snorkel in Kealakekua Bay, night snorkel with the manta rays (the last two scheduled with "Kona Boys" , excellent job) and travel to the northern part of the Island as well....

We stayed here 3 nights in early March 2015 and loved it! The hosts, Ken and Erin, are so welcoming. We wanted a different experience from a bustling hotel setting and the Luana Inn was perfect. The grounds are beautiful, the scenery is spectacular, and our suite, the Alaula, was really lovely and spacious, plus, very reasonably priced. The opportunity... More

We stayed here in May 2014. It was amazing. The accommodations were perfect. Our room was comfortable and the B & B is quiet. The hosts provide everything in your room you would need for a relaxing stay. We stayed for several days, the location is perfect for travel in the area. Everything the Hosts recommended, from restaurants to activities... More

The Luana Inn is a few miles outside Kona, and well worth the short drive to get there. Sitting on the side of a mountain, it overlooks the coast and the photos on the web site ARE real. A great location to snorkel, drive the southern tip of the Big Island, and just sit and enjoy a bit of paradise.... More

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
