Our family, from disparate parts of the globe, spent a long time planning a memorable 3-week vacation in the Hawaiian Islands. Keeping 2 late teens, 2 parents and 2 grandparents happy might have been a challenge but Kauai was truly beautiful and Oahu was fun and had memorable moments, our accommodations in both were fine, but nothing compared to the...

It was a magical place, Wendi and Dave provided an excellent menu and the variety of fresh fruits and a main course that is every chefs pleasure. We woke to the sounds of birds and watched the geckos eating their breakfast of sweet jam. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and our beds were very comfortable, we stayed seven days and... More

There is so much magic at Honu Kai that it is hard to know where to begin when sharing about this gorgeous B&B. - Property: Lush, beautifully manicured and intimately secluded, the peaceful energy of this space will make you forget how close you are to all that Kona has to offer. It took us roughly 8 - 15 minutes... More

Wendi and Dave made our one week stay one of the best weeks I have ever experienced. Mahalo! The B&B is beautiful from the dining area on the veranda overlooking an innovative garden to the spacious rooms with ensuites. The breakfasts are absolutely incredible, very inventive and tastey, worth waking up for and I'm not a morning person. The owners... More

My wife and I concur in the glowing recommendations of other guests. Wendi and Dave are wonderful hosts, and we have stayed in many B&Bs in US and Europe. This is a setting that encourages guests to mingle, so if you are looking to be alone you may have to work at it. It is also a car ride from... More

Honu Kai is definitely a cosy and friendly place,with a beautiful and well kept garden around it.Our room(Nigori) had all the comforts one needs and a very good bed ,the breakfast was substantial .But what makes the real difference is Wendy (assisted by her friendly husband,an ex-pilot):she is so incredibly knowledgeable about her island and so well organized in organizing...

Dave and Wendi have created a special place at Honu Kai. The property is beautiful, the rooms are extremely well appointed and comfortable, the food amazing and the hospitality is second to none. It helps when your hosts come from the top strata of travel, entertainment & hospitality backgrounds - add a touch of "Aloha" sprinkled on top and you've... More

Our stay at the Honu Kai B&B was amazing! Dave and Wendi think of everything to make everyone who stays there comfortable and able to enjoy Hawaii Island. The pictures on their website accurately depict the beautiful and comfortable rooms, relaxing common area and peaceful grounds. As mentioned in other reviews, they share detailed information about the island - beaches,... More

We have stayed at many B&B's around the world and this is one of the best anywhere. Wendi and Dave are gracious hosts of a beautiful property. We stayed in the Nigori Room which was incredibly comfortable. Every time we left on our day's adventure, Wendy or Dave made sure we had snacks, sunscreen, beach chairs or whatever we needed!...

So incredible to truly have the feeling you are revisiting family. We were so lucky to get back to Honu Kai for another wonderful vacation.

Mahalo Jim and Kim for taking the time to write a fantastic review about us. It was great having you back as part of our Ohana, the Hawaiian word for Family. Last time you were here we did not have our fire pit of friendship constructed yet, but we're happy you made it back to enjoy it this time. Next... More
