If you plan to stay on the Big Island reserve a room at the Honu Kai B&B. Wendy and Dave will make your stay very memorable. The rooms are spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The common area is well set up for relaxing and enjoying the sunrise and sunset. Breakfasts are prepared fresh every morning, beautifully presented and... More

We loved this place! In the 30 years we’ve been staying at B&B’s, this one may be our favorite. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed, with lots of artful touches all around. Honu Kai’s huge deck is designed for outdoor living, with the breakfast table and an outdoor kitchen. The rest of the deck is ideal for reading, lounging... More

Mahalo Anna for your nice review of our little slice of paradise called Honu Kai. With your extensive experience in traveling, it's a huge honor to have you acknowledge us as one of the best B&Bs you've stayed at.

We stayed with Wendi and Dave for 4 nights on a weeklong trip to Hawaii and we just have to reiterate everything said here. You land and feel like you are home.

Mahalo for your review of Honu Kai B&B. The biggest compliment we get is when people say they feel at home staying with friends or family. Most people arrive as guests, but most guests leave feeling like family. It is our Kuleana, or in English, our responsibility to make sure all visitors to our island have the very best experience...

My wife and I just spent four wonderful nights at Honu Kai. We went the last week in January to celebrate my birthday. I’m afraid I’m not as eloquent as some of the recent reviewers, but I have to try to relate just how nice this B&B is and how nice your hosts, Dave and Wendi are. The entire place—rooms,... More

What better way to start that, then with a good nights sleep and a great 3 course breakfast. We enjoyed sharing the evening with the... More

My wife and I stayed for four nights at the beginning of January. We showed up and just wanted to sleep the first night after a long flight. We were welcomed by Wendi and Dave, given directions to a nearby restaurant for dinner, and made to feel at home right away. During our stay, the breakfasts were excellent, although served... More

Mahalo for your review and for choosing to stay with us.

We stayed at Honu Kai B&B just after Xmas for 3 amazing days. I picked the B&B based on online reviews, including Trip Advisor. From the moment we arrived, Wendi and Dave proved why all the reviews rated them so high and why they're number 5 B&B in all of US (and 1st in Hawaii, of course). Because they were... More

My wife and I found the best place on the island. The breakfasts are to die for. Not only do they taste out of this world, but their presentation is right out of a five star restaurant. The facilities are top notch and very peaceful and calming. Wendi and Dave have great recommendations for sights to see and know the... More

Mahalo Doug for you're review of us. We have found with most of the people coming to Honu Kai, they all arrive as guests, but most leave feeling like friends or family. That might be why 20% of our stays, are from repeat guests. We'll be looking forward to your return. Aloha from your new friends on the Big Island,... More

We had the good fortune to spend 5 nights with Wendi & Dave. We selected their B&B based upon TripAdvisor reviews. Everything the reviewers said was true and then some. There are many, many reasons for the outstanding reviews. Wendi & Dave are the perfect hosts. They know what you need before you know what you need. Maps and guides... More

It's no wonder Honu Kai is rated the #1 B&B on the big island. What a pleasant stay we had! Wendi and Dave are super friendly and hospitable and it was like coming home everyday when we returned to Honu Kai. We were there over Christmas and the house was decorated beautifully. We were even treated with a Christmas ornament... More
