Outstanding B&B for those looking for quiet, seclusion, and an authentic taste of living in the Kona coast coffee belt. Amenities include: hot tub surrounded by lush jungle vegetation, gorgeous view, a clean nicely furnished room, and a congenial host, who greeted me with a fresh made smoothie from fruit grown just feet away. Host Shai was also very helpful... More

Here's our top ten list about the Lilikoi Inn: 1. Trina and Shai are incredible hosts. We felt welcomed and right at home! 2. Breakfast made by Shai every morning and eaten on the lanai overlooking the Kona Coast 3. Picking lilikoi (passion fruit) right off the tree 4. Learning to hula with Trina 5. Fresh papaya every morning for... More

Thanks so much for your review of the Lilikoi Inn, We enjoyed having you as guests and hope you come back again sometime. Now the whales are gone from the island but the ocean water is getting warmer and the snorkeling is fantastic so we are getting ready for summer here on the Big island. The volcano is calm again...

Trina and Shai made us feel so welcome! The delicious breakfasts of local fruit and cooked dishes were enough to last through lunch. Helpful advice as to where to snorkel and swim let us make the most of our limited time. It was magic staying mid coffee trees and lilikoi vines, enjoying a comfortable room and views from the spacious... More

Shai served up masterpieces for breakfast, with enough marvelous food to last us through lunch and beyond! The property is a slice of paradise, complete with fruit trees, gorgeous flowers, and enough privacy to allow for maximum enjoyment. Highly recommend to all.

The setting is wonderful. At nearly 1,500 feet above the Kona Coast, the temperature was a perfect 72 degrees to 80 degrees in midday. The Inn has two porches that extend above the surrounding coffee plantation, Banana, and Avocado trees. In addition, they offer excellent views of the Kona Coast. Sunsets were spectacular and so was star gazing. Colorful birds... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lilikoi Inn. As soon as you begin up the steep driveway off the main road, the heat of the coast drops away and you feel miles away from everything - just the break we needed from city life. The inn sits within a jungle of luscious fruit and flower trees, complete with a... More

This B & B was even better than described. It's in a lush, tropical setting, with abundant fruit trees, exotic flowers and birds. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. Our host, Shai, made us feel immediately at home. The inn is welcoming and casual, the food is superb, and the coffee is excellent! They have the best avocados... More

On paper, Lilikoi Inn is the perfect B&B, but our ultimate experience wasn't the best. My 3/5 rating has to do with our specific experience there, so please read on. The Lilikoi is a picturesque slice of paradise just outside of Kailua. Shai and Trina have done a fantastic job turning this place into a tropical haven for travelers, complete... More

A unique B& B, high in the tropics, overlooking Kona. Wonderful hosts, fabulous breakfasts, spacious rooms. Great local knowledge from Shai and Trina. An oasis worth staying at just 10 mins from town.

Lillikoi Inn was one of the most tranquil, relaxing places I've been to; and I've traveled lots. While staying at the Lillikoi Inn we savored every moment. The amazing sunrises, the sunsets, and the nighttime blanket of glimmering stars in the sky. The sound of absolute quiet with only natural sounds of nature singing or chirping was a peaceful way...
