We booked a night at the plantation based on the reviews and we're so happy we came. Greg and Mike provides a very relaxed environment in their wonderful house. We highly recommend this place! The only part we regret is not staying longer.

My wife and I recently stayed 2 nights at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything about this place was heavenly. It wasn't just the great room, it was the breakfast, the hospitality of the hosts (Greg and Mike), the view, the peacefulness. We loved every minute of our stay. Great location as well!

This was the last Bed and Breakfast we stayed at during our honeymoon in Hawai'i and it was an experience never to forget! From the welcome by our hospitable hosts with mango juice and macadamia nuts on the lanai, to the breathtakingly beautiful room which was filled with fresh flowers, and the hot tub and outside showers, it was all...

Sometimes you get somewhere that has an absolutely perfect location, an exquisite property or unbelievable customer service. Very rarely all of these come together and that is Ka'awa Loa Plantation. The property is perfectly located with amazing views over the sea and hillsides, just south of Kona so you can get down to the beach or inland in a very... More

Michael and Greg are gracious, helpful hosts. On arrival, you are greeted by a daunting driveway up to the house. Don't be deterred. Ka'awa Loa Plantation is among the nicest places that we have stayed. We were in the Mountain Room in the back of the house. Every evening the cool air would roll off the mountain and make it...

My husband and I spent 4 fabulous days at the plantation. The garden alone is worth the visit. The house is wonderful and all the little extra treats like freshly baked pie or brownies in the afternoon make this place special. Everything we needed for a day at the beach or snorkeling like towels, beach chairs and gear was available... More

Greg and Michael are the Burns and Allen of the Big Island. They have a long history in the hospitality industry in Hawaii, and their accounts are very funny. In additon, their local knowledge of where to eat served us well. They are the most unique b&b owners we have ever encountered on our travels.

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation, and we just loved it. The property is located on a hill overlooking the ocean and is surrounded by beautiful landscaping. There is a great snorkeling in the area, along with several Kona coffee farms. The hospitality and breakfast were both wonderful, and we enjoyed the outdoor... More
