We stayed 8 nights at the Mauna Lani Golf Villa Condo and this was just wonderful! The condo is fully equipped not only with everything you need in the house but also with fun-articles for the beach.

I wish we could give Dave and Wendy 10 stars. We have stayed in fine hotels and b &bs around the world but this was by far the very best. We spent 6 wonderful nights here. Each day we had a completely different absolutely delicious breakfast but you can get that lots of places. We had a very pretty, absolutely... More

The four of us (two couples) had a wonderful stay at Honu Kai B & B. The rooms and beds were comfortable, and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable visit to the Big Island.

Mahalo for taking the time to review our Honu Kai B&B, and we're very sorry you had less than an excellent time with us. Unfortunately when you were visiting us we did have warmer than normal temperatures due to the high humidity caused by the unseasonal rains.

Stayed with Wendi and Dave - their knowledge of not only the big island but all the other islands was amazing to say the least. They were the most friendly hosts who genuinely enjoy the company of guests and entertain accordingly. The property is absolutely pristine -bedrooms to die for.

My husband and I spent 7 nights on the Big Island in late June/early July. Upon our jet-lagged arrival on the big island, we were promptly welcomed by Wendi and Dave to the Big Island with a cold Kona Brewing beer. We stayed in the Mahina Suite, which was wonderful! The bed was quite comfortable and the setting was great.... More

I have to agree with all the wonderful reviews of this B&B. We have stayed in many and this one is right up there at the top of the list. Wendi and Kona Dave are the reason.
