Great place to stay while on the North Side of Kauai. The B&B is very well kept up. There are many amenities such as washer and dryer, hot tub, beach gear, snorkels, etc. The owners are pleasant and have a lot of information on what to do in Kauai. Toby's jokes need a little work, but he gets an A... More

We stayed 3 nights in the mango room . The room is lovely with a great view of the mountain and ver well appointed. The bathroom had a great shower overlooking the mountain. Breakfast was cooked freshly every morning by Toby and it was different every time with fresh local fruit and original syrups.Probably someone with a healthy appetite might... More

Aloha, We also love the Mango room. The outdoor shower down next to the hottub is perfect for hikers returning from a muddy Kalalau trip. We are really enjoying preparing the fruit and vegetables from our garden and granted fruit is not as filling as say pancakes. We do offer these and french toast and perhaps big eaters need to...

We stayed here for 6 nights in the papaya room as part of our honeymoon. The bed was very large and comfortable. We liked Toby and Kirby, both are characters. Toby cooked us wonderful breakfasts every morning including macadamia nut waffles, omelettes, eggs how we liked them, bacon, Mexican wraps and pancakes. There was also a plate of tropical fruit...

I guess that it depends upon the day, but we found this to be one of the better B&Bs around. I was deciding between a 4 and 5 star and I gave it 4 (I hardly ever give 5), but my wife asked what could have made it a 5 and really nothing, it really did warrant a 5 -... More

This was our last B&B stay during our Hawaiian holiday. We received a warm welcome from Kirby who showed us around the property. Our room was pleasant, comfortably equipped, with a good sized bathroom. The property is well located for the North Shore.
