The Big Island of Hawai'i is a magical place with such powerful primal, loving energy. From the volcano to the beaches and the ocean; every place is sacred in its own way. Akiko's Bed and Breakfast in Wailea breathes the energy of the ALOHA SPIRIT; a beautiful, peaceful and serene place with a kind and warm hostess. I spent my... More

We stayed at Akikos for one night and wished we could have stayed for longer. Set slightly back from the road, the house is surrounded by greenery and fruit trees around the back. The house itself is very homely and very well kept, well painted and well furnished. Wifi is provided with the house and the house provides a lovely... More

You are lucky if you get the chance to meet Akiko and experience her hospitality and kindness. If you want to stay in charming and beautiful cottage then do go. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Akiko's would be a brilliant base from which to explore the island with the benefit of knowing that you would... More

When people say they want to get away from it all, they might have Akiko's in mind. You will not be pampered, but you will have the chance to nourish your mind and soul. Breakfast with Akiko is many things -- food for the body, discussions of life in the slow lane, local news, reflections on life, the trials and... More

Staying at Akiko’s was truly the highlight of our trip. We stayed for five nights – the full duration of our time on Big Island - and felt privileged to able to turn off the main highway and enter into the life of this small village. During our time there we embraced a different way of appreciating life. As artists,... More

Ms. Akiko is the most gracious host. Her B & B is lovely and you immediately are surrounded with the Spirit of Hawaii. The plantation houses are quaint and funky with beautiful tropical gardens all around. Very clean great place to relax and get centered. Close to city of Hilo and the waterfalls. The breakfast was delicious fresh fruit and... More

Our stay @ Akiko's B&B was an amazing experience. She is a heartwarming individual with welcoming hospitality & such kindness. I am truly inspired by her, visiting & listening to stories told over breakfast are fascinating. The tranquil & serene atmosphere is so invigorating. I look forward to visiting again with my family & highly recommend to all whether it... More

Staying at Akiko's B&B is a truly memorable experience. The property consists of several historic houses, and is part of a very small, quaint rural village. It's 11 miles north of fun and funky Hilo and near the botanical gardens, waterfalls etc. I stayed several nights in Hale Aloha, a stand-alone, spacious 3 bedroom house. I loved every minute of...

I cannot think of many places where I felt so peaceful and comfortable. This place is a true sanctuary, enveloped in beauty and care. Buddha statuettes and little sculptures amongst flowers; little paths winding through the tropical gardens, meditation rooms (zendo) and superb art in the attached Motonaga gallery... this is an absolutely unique place. I loved the frog concerts... More

If you’d like to step away from the touristy side of Hawaii and step into a slower-paced, community-based pocket on the tropical side of the Big Island, this is your place. This B&B is rich with history and connections to community and mindful living. It’s also energetic and fun, thanks to Miss Akiko, who is full of spunk and stories.... More
