Many good things to say about this place: * superior service from Michael, Greg and Hannah. They really know how to run at B&B * fantastic view of the ocean from high up the hill * enjoy the view from the wrap around porch - numerous seating selections on the porch - several rocking chairs available, dine at a table,...

We spent five nights here. The house feels cozy and comfortable, yet at the same time it never feels crowded. It was tempting to just sit on the porch all day and enjoy the view, but instead we used this convenient location as our base for day trips throughout the big island. Our host, Greg, was very helpful in making... More

Ka'awa Loa Plantation is an absolutely delightful bed and breakfast. The rooms are charming, and the enormous back porch overlooking the ocean is especially delightful. Breakfast both mornings we were there was delicious and filling. The B&B is located close to Kona, so it's within easy access to all that area has to offer yet is enough off the beaten... More

From the minute you step over the threshold to the moment you reluctantly have to leave, this B & B provides the ultimate in luxury, attention to detail, beautiful surroundings and the friendliest hosts you could possibly wish for. We booked one of the mountain-view rooms. Don't be put off by the fact you don't have a shower in your... More

Spent five nights in the Honaunau room. Fabulous views on two sides and a large closet. Did not miss having our own bathroom and loved the lava shower outside. Enjoyed the delicious fresh fruits and the varied American style cooked breakfasts. Afternoon snacks were very welcome. The kitchen and barbecue were incredible and made our stay more special. What can... More

Best guesthouse in the world. Magnificent view, warm hospitality, great breakfast, tastefully decorated house. Many good restaurant around the area too. But remember to bring insect repellent with you as the area is full of insects and mosquito due to the nature of the environment.

The team of Ka'awa Loa really does mean and live that slogan! Very friendly and helpful hosts, a great breakfast (with fresh fruits and coffee from their own plantation) and a stunning veranda with with a terrific view for sunsets. That B&B is a lovely place to explore Big Island. Just one hint: some rooms only have a "half bathroom"... More

a spacious living space, well appointed kitchen, great views and lovely people made this a very enjoyable destination. The staff were lovely, friendly and warm and did everything they could to make one feel at home. We had access to the kitchen to cook in the evening if we so desired and the breakfasts were very nice indeed, including fruit... More

I stayed at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation for 2 nights at the end of my trip in the Pacific Islands. I had the feeling I was just coming back to a place I've always known. Hannah welcomed me with fresh fruits and tea. I stayed on the terrace and enjoyed the hot tub looking at the sunset… Michael prepares gorgeous... More
