Luana Inn combines the charm and convenience with a great view and phenomenal breakfasts. Ken and Erin are great hosts (and great chefs)! The grounds are beautiful, rooms are clean and comfortable, and the view from the pool deck is spectacular. We would bring food over and have dinner watching the sunset; can't get any more peaceful than that! The... More

A friend and I stayed at the Luana Inn for 3 nights. There are fabulous views, gorgeous landscaping, a circular pool and hot tub, Ken and Erin were wonderful, personable hosts. Breakfast was very tasty. They went out of their way to prep some fruit for our early morning flight. The Inn is convenient to snorkeling, volcanoes and coffee plantations.... More

Great accommodations, good location, clean, nice pool overlooking the coast, nice hot tub. Thanks very much for providing excellent vegan breakfasts each morning. Sweet dog. Nice beaches and good snorkeling in close proximity.

We just returned from a wonderful two week visit to Hawaii (Kauai and the Big Island). We chose the Luanna Inn for our base for visiting the west side of the Big Island, and we are so glad we did! The location is perfect - a short distance away from two of the best snorkeling spots in the state (Two... More

Luana Inn was an amazing place to stay in Captain Cook. It is such a convenient location, so close to bay and Captain Cook Monument with multiple attractions surrounding it. And if you just want to stay in there is plenty to do with DVD rentals, a BBQ, pool, board games, etc. Close to great food and not too far... More

We were looking for a warm and sunny location for a few days after just over a week spent near Hilo and in Volcano. Ken and Erin, and not forgetting their charming two young sons, proved to be wonderful and kind hosts, with nothing too much trouble. There is a charming small beach just down the road, with snorkelling gear... More

Owners Ken and Erin have created a little garden of eden on the Big Island. It's a place where travelers can find comfortable lodging with beautiful sunset/ocean views at a reasonable price. They create a tasty morning breakfast every day. And they are fabulous hosts who can provide helpful information about local events and destinations. Indeed, we really feel like... More

From the photos posted online, we were sure that the Luana Inn would be beautiful. However, the photos don’t do this lovely place justice. We stayed with Erin & Ken for 9 nights in June 2014 when we visited the Big Island to get married at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. They truly treated us as family in their home. The... More

My granddaughter and I stayed here for 10 days in June, 2014. The property is beautiful with a lovely pool, hot tub, great landscaping and a superb view. The room is clean and nicely furnished, not too fancy but functional. This is a rural location with a true local experience. Be sure and get some fresh fish and steak at... More
