My husband and I spent two nights at the Lilikoi Inn on the recommendation of a friend. The owners, Shai and Trina, are a hoot. We learned all about them, their stories, their journey to the island, their family, etc. The conversation was fascinating and never stopped, so be prepared to engage with your hosts! The breakfast is truly fantastic.... More

You do yourself a disservice to spend a vacation on Hawaii Island and not experience local accommodation away from the tourist scene. Explore during the day and come "home" to the Lilikoi Inn! Wander through the gorgeous vegetation, listen to and look at the birds and other wildlife, eat local, organic, and fresh foods beautifully prepared and presented (Shai's granola,... More

We seemed to naturally float awake at 6 am every morning. Then a leisurely walk through the hillside tangle of enormous houseplants gone wild to a warm bubbling hot tub. Relaxing, listening to mysterious jungle rustlings - actually the sound of foraging chickens whose eggs were our breakfast. Panoramic views from the lanai, while sharing food, home-grown organic coffee and... More

Let's start off by noting the BIG attraction here: breakfast! If you love the ambiance of a huge porch overlooking a spectacular view of the hillside leading down to the glorious Pacific Ocean, and you treasure a family-style table surrounded by interesting guests and laden with fresh fruits and juices and special entrees made with local foods by a genuinely...

After reading numerous positive reviews on trip advisor about Lilikoi Inn, our experience far exceeded our already high expectations. Upon entering the property we knew we were in for a treat. We received a warm welcome from Shai who immediately grabbed our bags and showed us to our newly renovated room. We then received a welcome smoothie that Shai put... More

The little tropical paradise at the Lilikoi Inn invites to exploring the grounds with its beautiful plants, many of which will contribute to the scrumptious breakfast either in the form of freshly picked avocados, bananas and passion fruit, as well as the famous Kona coffee (home grown), or in the form of exotic, decorative flowers. Take in the marvelous view... More

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

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.

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
