My boyfriend and I had the best weekend staying at the Lilikoi Inn. The owners are fabulous hosts, offer magnificent rooms and really give you a feel for life in Kona. The Inn is conveniently located for getting down to Kailua-Kona yet out of the way enough that you don't feel like you are staying on a lava field. I... More

My wife and I stayed at Lilikoi for 10 days and it was definitely one of the great parts of the trip. We had a lot of fun doing many activities and seeing many places on the island but Lilikoi was the constant that made made the whole trip really memorable (like a really good sauce in a pasta dish)....

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

Thank you for writing a review as it gives people a little picture of øur place.We are a bed and breakfast not a hotel so we do try to make you feel at home while you are in Hawaii. We do come in to clean up the room, empty garbages check on towels but the bed service is really for... 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
