My boyfriend and I had high hopes for this place because of the pictures and positive reviews. The owner e-mailed me the day before to let me know the check-in time, that two of her colleagues were going to welcome us, and that she provided a complimentary upgrade to our room. She sounded very professional and that made us excited... More

Nice place, away from main road. Very good local breakfast. Excellent if you want to enjoy sunset in the tropical forest when day animals and birds go to sleep and night creatures awake. Full of tree frogs, so expect croak all night long.

We stayed for 3 nights in February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Terrie (the owner) is very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable of the local area she provided us with lots of information about what to see and do - and there is quite a lot, stuff you don't read about in the regular travel books. We stayed in the Ohana... More

Delightful atmosphere, food and company. Fresh fruit and Macadamia nuts at all times, a cat and fresh muffins and Kona coffee greet you in the morning. There are also two sweet dogs to romp in the yard with. The Rainbow Inn has the largest above-ground swimming pool I have ever seen! I highly recommend a stay here and do take... More
