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

Thank you so much for coming to the Lilikoi Inn, We are happy you enjoyed the place which we so lovingly work on day and night. We are very sorry that our family made so much noise that disturbed you. This has never happened and we learned our lesson, they can only come when we are closed! It was a... 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...

We were so lucky to be able to stay at the Lilikoi Inn again. Shai and Trina are the most hospitable and warm hosts. They make you feel so welcome and treat you like family. I had not been feeling well, and Shai made me a special lunch, along with smoothies and lunch for my husband. The property is so... More

Staying at the Lillioi In was a true treat. From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, Shay and Trina makes you feel welcome and completely at home.

Most of the accommodations on the Kona side of the Big Island are either expensive, impersonal resorts or along the crowded, noisy main drag of Kona. The landscape is barren lava. It is so much better to stay in charming, lush Holualoa, 15 minutes above Kona. Staying at the Lilikoi is a like staying with your new friends, Trina and... More

Do you know that moment: you are sitting at your desk back home, it's gray outside the windows, your vacation is gone. But then comes an e-mail from Trina & Shai and you remember all the good times again. It's like being back in Hawaii. Experiencing that warm hospitality by Trina and Shai. They are the perfect hosts. Both are... More

Staying at the Lilikoi Inn was truly an experience. The accommodation and food were wonderful, and our hosts, Trina and Shai, couldn't have been more accommodating, helpful and just downright nice people. The breakfasts were one of the best I have had at a B&B and they have a secluded hot tub, which was lovely. We had great sunsets to... More

We are so glad you enjoyed the LIlikoi Inn and our lovely hot tub. It is the perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach and we love relaxing there as well! We hope to see you again at the Lilikoi Inn, and hopefully sooner rather than later! with aloha, Trina and Shai More

To us, the Lilikoi Inn felt like paradise. The relaxed, laid-back atmosphere and the convenient facilities provide an ideal vacation spot. Not to mention its lovely hosts: Trina & Shay. We were welcomed with a delicious smoothie made from their local produce (papaya, banana, and more) as well as salted/peppered pieces of freshly cut avocado. On that and other occasions,... More

The Lilikoi Inn is away from the maddening crowd but close enough to get involved in it. It is on 3+acres in the rain forest overlooking Kailua-Kona. Shai and Trina were our gracious hosts for 5 nights. They made suggestions which enhanced our dining and touring experience. Our room was large, pleasant, and quiet enough to get a very good...
