The beauty of the surrounding tropical rainforest encaptured me. It was lush, fertile, and fruitful. The beauty of the spirit at Akiko's was embracing and reaffirming. I was there for 10 days. Most mornings before breakfast, I walked about 15 minutes through the tropical forest to Kolekole Beach Park to see and hear the ocean. Breakfast included many breads, granola,... More

Aloha, like the Indian greeting Namaste, means much more than "Hello" or "Good-Bye". Staying at Akiko's Buddhist Bread and Breakfast provides an Aloha experience of peace, compassion and mercy rarely found at a B&B. Located in a tropical rain forest north of Hilo, the property offers many different types of accommodations... all surrounded by lush greenery of tropical trees, bamboo... More

Enchanting inn and innkeeper satisfied my need for alone time, introspection and a little book reading. The town itself has no services, no market etc. while Akiko provides a sweet little breakfast of fruit, coffee and bread, people will need to bring (or leave for) lunch and dinner. There is a shared kitchen if you want to cook. You will... More

Akiko's is a wonderful, magical place--a true chance to unplug and reflect. I stayed here for five nights in August 2014, and could have easily stayed for at least five more. I could go on at length about the wonderful fresh papaya served at breakfast each morning, how each building on the property is charmingly tucked into the jungle, the... More

Akiko's B and B is the perfect blend of community and privacy -a variety of accommodations which are beautiful, simple, and lack distraction. I loved the Japanese-style room shower and the lush grounds. The community breakfast in the main house was generous, organic, and delicious. It's the perfect opportunity to meet people from other countries and connect to share a... More

One beautiful morning in December of 2013 I was sitting at the breakfast table at Akiko’s Buddhist Bed & Breakfast in Wailea Village on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. Wailea is a small plantation village on the east side of the Big Island. The climate is mild and sunny there and the Bed and breakfast is surrounded by rainforest.... More

You can travel to visit Kyoto Zen gardens in Japan, or you can seek to combine tropical lush and Zen atmosphere, in this case, it would be hard to find a better place than Akiko’s. It’s peaceful, it’s meditative and it is so vibrant green. It was so hard to leave! We stayed in the Mango cottage, surrounded by ancient... More

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
