My wife and I recently returned from a week at Ka'awa Loa for our honeymoon, and it was perfect. The property itself is spectacular with 180 degree views of the ocean from the deck. Our room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable, and the outdoor lava rock showers and hot tub gave everything a tropical/exotic feel. The best, though, was... More

This was a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, and it turned out to be my most favorite lodgings while in Hawaii. The home and hosts are so welcoming, I was sorry to leave. Thanks for making my experience so wonderful!

I've stayed at many a B&B and this is, hands down, the best one I've ever stayed at. This gigantic plantation house is open and airy. The delectable breakfasts are almost -- almost -- too beautiful to eat. The hosts are hilarious and full of information about the best places to go. Between the expansive view of the ocean down...

Lets face it Hawaii is bigger than I thought so was surprised by how everything is a drive. But this place was so incredibly much more than just worth the drive. The views from the back yard and deck are just amazing, the rooms are very well appointed and beautifully decorated. The beds were the most comfortable of all the... More

My daughter and I stayed at the plantation for our first night on Big Island. This is the perfect place to unwind after a long flight. What bliss! The plantation house is exquisite with beautiful decor. The grounds showcase the rainforest and views from the back porch are spectacular. The hosts are very knowledgeable about everything Hawaiian. Lastly, Michael's breakfasts... More

This is the Crown Jewel and truly Aloha and E Komo Mai, which means hello and welcome to my home! Actually, Greg and Michael make you feel Ka’awa Loa Plantation is your home! This place is magnificent and can’t imagine staying anywhere else on the Big Island. I was on the Big Island for work and this place was just... More

Surrounded by tropical trees,flowers and gardens with a yard that had sweeping views of the sea.It is truly a gem. Michael and Greg are so helpful and welcoming. Breakfast... More

We can only recommend this B&B. Michael and Greg and especially Hanna were great. The breakfast is phantastic and the view from the terrace perfect. We stayed in the Suite which is very spacious. It was cleary the best B&B on our tour of Big Island.

We hardly say this, after all, there are so many places to see and even more accommodations to choose from. But after our three night stay at Ka'awa Loa, we know for sure that if we ever travel to the Big Island in the near future, we will plan on a stint in the south Kona coast if only to... More

I'm not a B&B person - always worried about the hosts, other guests, lack of privacy. But the reviews for Ka'awa were so good we decided to risk it - and we're glad we did! Greg was away but Michael was a wonderful host and Hanna was a delight - welcoming us with hugs, macadamia nuts and mango juice, sharing... More
