What else can I add that so many others have not already said? :) From the time we arrived (late, but Wendi was waiting to greet us!), they took such good care of us. The 3-course breakfast with assorted juices, coffee, teas, pastries, fruit dish, and delicious main course (French toast, breakfast burrito, and more) was already more than enough,... More

This was our 4th stay with Wendi and Dave and we have never been disappointed. As usual, they went out of their way to make our stay in paradise a wonderful experience. Do to a flight cancellation, we were unable to meet our daughter as planned and she ended up in Kona 1 1/2 days before we could get there.... More

Mahalo for your review of our condo, and it was our pleasure to meet your daughter Erica at the airport when your flight to Hawaii was cancelled. It's all about the Aloha.

We had an excellent experience at Honu Kai!! Wendi and Dave go above and beyond and make you feel like part of the family. All the extras - beach towels, cooler, snacks, and snorkel equipment on top of their in depth knowledge of the island, willingness to make reservations / recommendations, taking the time to talk story, and making themselves...

Mahalo Colleen for your review of all the special things that the island and Honu Kai has to offer. I was surprised that you didn't mention what I think is one of the neatest things offered here in Kona, that you can't do or see anywhere else in the world. Visiting our Sea Rider seahorse farm. This is the only... More

We spent four nights with Wendy and Dave on our first holiday on the Big Island. Arriving at Honu Kai was sort of like coming home: after a warm welcome, we relaxed and chatted with Wendy and Dave. They have explored the island themselves, and love it; they offered plenty of ideas on what to do during our stay there.... More

My first trip to the Big Island was made especially memorable because of Wendi and Dave and Honu Kai B&B. As a frequent world traveler and musical performer, I have stayed at many B&B stops along the way, but NOTHING compares to this charming property and the true hospitality of its owners. As a gift for college graduation, my boyfriend,... More

"Ohana", The Hawaiian word for family. At Honu Kai B&B all visitors arrive as our honored guests, but many leave feeling like they've become family. This is a very special and important compliment to us at Honu Kai. It means we've been successful in sharing our magical island, made visitors feel at home, and made guests feel like they are...

Wendi and Dave gave us the perfect start to our honeymoon. They were so generous with their time, advice and equipment - they were happy to lend us beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkels and towels. The room was absolutely beautiful, with a fantastic bed and a lovely view of their garden. The breakfasts were sublime - different every day we... More

We two were warmly greeted by Wendi and Dave upon our arrival at Honu Kai B&B. On our first night we hadn't made any dinner plans, but Wendi graciously offered to book us a table at the Holuakoa Cafe, a short drive away. This allowed us more time to unpack and unwind after our flight, which we greatly appreciated. We... More

Mahalo Nancy for the compliments and your glowing review of our Honu Kai B&B. All of our guest are special, but anyone willing to get up so early in the morning to try and catch a fish, deserves the extra effort of a hot breakfast to go. We would like to think that it was actually our breakfast which attracted... More
