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

It has been over 8 years since my wife and I visited the Plantation. Mike and Greg treated us to a most lovely week that lives in my memory vividly still. You cannot fathom the spirit that is vibrant in this place, the Hawaiian true nature. We felt at home and the best parts were the impromptu cook outs with... More

My wife and I picked Ka'awa Loa for the middle of our 2-week 30th anniversary trip to Hawaii. It provided the right place for us to both base our time in Captain Cook for some snorkeling and to chill in midst of our extended time away from home. We stayed in the Cottage and appreciated the separateness it gave us... More

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
