After negotiating for the first time the steep curving one-way drive up the hill, you find yourself at the front of the delightful house which is Ka’Awa Loa Plantation. Being that it was formerly a doctor’s family’s house means everything is super nicely decorated and well-appointed. And nothing quite prepares you for the fantastic view from the lanai of the...

Michael and Greg were such wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Everything was so easy and smooth from booking to departure. The plantation is a slice of heaven with an infinite ocean view, wraparound porch and a lazy day bed we fell fast asleep on! It's also the perfect location if you love snorkelling - Capt.... More

We spent two wonderful nights in the suite, and wholeheartedly recommend Ka'awa Loa to anyone looking for a low-key but luxurious B&B. Michael was a fantastic host. He offered the perfect balance of local advice and personality without being intrusive in the slightest. Breakfasts were fresh and homemade, with plenty of fruit fresh from the plantation itself. The location of... More

The owners and staff were so kind and friendly. I should have reviewed when we got home but time got away from me. Hanna could not have been any nicer - making us feel welcome when we got in late with a snack and talk of the plantation. The plantation is a very nice setting with views of the ocean... More

Hannah just radiates hospitality! She was warm, welcoming, eager to help, full of good advice and cooks a rockin' breakfast! The grounds are beautiful and the veranda is spectacular! It was really wonderful to begin and end each day enjoying the panoramic view of the coastline. We stayed in the cottage, which could use some updating and maintenance but was... More

This place is beautiful and so peaceful! Greg, Michael and Hannah are perfect hosts and know exactly how to make your stay a relaxing one. Breakfasts were amazing! Don't miss Michael's banana and macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup! This is a great value for an incredible view, beautiful home, and excellent food. Definitely the best place to stay on...

We just got back from our trip to the big island and 3 nights at Ka'Awa. It is an absolutely amazing bed and breakfast. The views are truly spectacular and one could spend hours simple sitting on the porch. The breakfast were amazing - they consisted of estate grown fruits as well as coffee and a variety of pastries/bread as... More

I didn't want to use hotels on this trip to Hawaii and I was looking for small, quaint, and comfortable accommodations. Well this was just what we (husband & I) were looking for. Peaceful, out of the way, clean, beautiful surroundings--this place has it all! The location is what I consider in the middle of nowhere, yet not far to... More

The headline is that we adored Ka'awa Loa Plantation. We were looking to steer clear of the resorts and to experience authentic Hawaii, and this place offers best of both worlds at a very reasonable price. Michael, Greg and Hannah are superb hosts of this very comfortable B&B. Amenities include a beautifully restored plantation house, 5 or so acres of... More
