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...

What a wonderful surprise! Could not decide what we liked more...the view, the food, the comfort, or the hospitality. Fresh fruit from home grown trees and a chef's touch to each breakfast thanks to Shai. Super comfortable bed and spacious room. Extra feature of a shared guest lounge and kitchen allows for impromptu meals and socializing. The lanai over looking... More

My wife and I stayed at Lilikoi over Christmas Eve, as part of our honeymoon. We were only there two nights, but enjoyed the feel of the place. Trina and Shai are very accomodating; it'll feel more like you're staying with family friends than a bed and breakfast. One of the cons is the access road or shared driveway. The... More

Thanks so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Hawaii. We just wanted to let you know there is an easy way to approach our road, by turning around on the next street and then making a right turn. This is a lava bump, very common in hawaii but can easily be navigated once you... More

As the Lillikoi Inn got a 5 star rating at Booking.com and many critics were positive, we booked 5 days hoping to spend a quiet, comfortable stay. This was our experience: PROS : -situated in the jungle between banana trees en coffee bushes; -quiet, if cows and roosters do not make noise at night; -coffee, fruits and omelette tasteful, but...

Our family had a delightful few-nights stay at the Lilikoi Inn this past December. Trina and Shai, the innkeepers, are marvelous people -- kind, fun, generous with advice, and so welcoming. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was plentiful and delicious, and we met interesting people over breakfast each morning. We also loved having access to a kitchen. It... More

Lilikoi Inn...Had a wonderful time sleeping deep with wonderful dreams, eating wonderful food and conversing with great people...both the guests and the proprietors Trina and Shai. The view from the deck was spectacular. The place was very warm and giving. I would love to return soon.

My husband and I stayed at the Lilikoi Inn just before Christmas. Every aspect of this Inn far exceeded our expectations! It is more than a bed and breakfast as the hosts are just that, active, involved hosts. Their knowledgeable guidance provided us with an insider's experience of Kona. They know every beach, every local eatery and provide as much... More
