I cannot say enough about Ka'awa Loa Plantation. This B & B is such a gem. The hosts/owners, Michael and Greg, are the best. Food they prepare is so fresh and delicious, much of it made from what they grow. The setting is beautiful, high and over-looking Keleakakua Bay, which I could see from the spacious veranda. They keep on... More

The Ka'awa Loa plantation is a beautiful BnB with an incredible view of the bays along Captain Cook. Greg was a very approachable and attentive host, while still allowing lots of space and privacy for guests to relax without feeling bothered. Despite having several other families staying, the house is so spacious that you never feel crowded. This home has... More

We had a delightful five day stay at Ka'awa Loa. We stayed in the cottage, which may be a little more funky than the main house, but has more privacy. Ka'awa Loa is not a resort, but a lovely guest house, and outstanding in its category. Michael & Greg are exceedingly gracious hosts. The location is great -- close to... More

Some innkeepers just make it look so easy, but with all the attention to detail at Ka'awa Loa, clearly it took thought and effort to achieve such a perfect experience for guests. We wanted three nights and were finally able to get two nights on our route from Hilo to Kailua. And trust me, you will be kicking yourself if... More

After a hot and dusty backpacking trip, my husband and I decided to spoil ourselves on our last day experiencing the Big Island...and boy did we ever! This gorgeous place happened to have one room left and we could not have been happier. From the moment we arrived we were showered with hospitality and the real Aloha spirit. From the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation. The property is casual elegance at it's best, decorated with Hawaiian art. The buffet breakfasts were abundant and delicious. Michael baked up brownies and pineapple unside down cake for tea in the afternoon. What a treat! We loved the deck with it's wonderful view of the Kona coast. We really... More

This is one beautiful B&B. A beautiful home high up on the hill overlooking the Captain Cook harbor. Fantastic views off the rear open air porch. The owners, Mike & Greg, are fabulous. Greeted us at the door and, since we were a group of 11, they basically gave us the run of the house. Very friendly people. Large kitchen... More

My girlfriend and I spend three nights at Ka'awa Loa plantation during Thanksgiving 2013 holidays. We had a late flight from San Francisco, so we arrived pretty late in the night. The owner left us a note with instructions about how to reach the room. When we woke up in the morning and we discovered how beautiful the place was... More

This place is simply amazing. We stayed for just one night but we wished we would never have to leave again. Already when you enter the lobby, you feel that this place is special and you immediately start to relax. The sunset from the terrace that we saw was absolutely stunning. The breakfast was amazing, too, with fresh fruits from... More

The view from the lanai -- sitting on the hillside overlooking the sun setting -- perfect! This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. Immaculately clean, lovely food, incredibly comfortable, and very quiet. The hot tub and outdoor rainshower are a treat. The hosts are welcoming and generous. The food is great. The location is perfect.
