We stayed 9 days at the Honu Kai B&B in the Nigori Suite and we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable time. The decorations in this property were marvelous, the breakfast superb, and the company fabulous. We are so glad we chose to stay here for our honeymoon. It is always peaceful and zen-like in this B&B after a... More

This was our first experience staying in a B&B and we were pleasantly surprised with our experience. Dave and Wendy have set the bar high in terms of what we would expect from other B&B's in the future. On arrival, we were greeted by Dave who offered us a drink before showing us to our room which was the Nigori... More

We found Honu Kai through Tripadvisor where it boasts the best reviews you're ever likely to see. Wendy and Dave run a charming B&B set in a beautifully maintained Hawaiian garden paradise. The breakfasts were delicious, varied, and gigantic. The rooms we saw were all beautiful. We stayed in the Nigori suite, which might house the most comfortable bed ever... More

We first arrived a little early as we had to leave our previous B&B. As we walked up the owners Wendi and Dave greeted us as old friends and allowed us to put our bags near the room while it was being cleaned. When we returned the bags had been placed in the room and we were ready to go.... More

Wendi and Dave made our too-brief two night stay more than memorable. We arrived late and were welcomed with open arms. Our room was lovely with hospitable touches and a more-than-comfortable bed. Breakfasts were delicious, with great conversations with interesting fellow guests. Wendi not only had printed activity suggestions and directions, but then she and Dave packed us a bag... More

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Kona. We stayed here for 5 nights and we were absolutely blown away. Best B&B I have ever stayed at hands down. The property is gorgeous, romantic, tropical and calming. As soon as you drive up you feel like you're in another world. Wendi & Dave are the best... More

My husband and I stayed in the bungalow at Honu Kai October 7-14 to celebrate our 40th anniversary and watch our friend do the Kona Ironman. On our last trip to the big island we did the resort thing so I wanted the experience of what Hawaii is like for someone who lives there. Honu Kai was the perfect place... More

It just doesn't get any better than this. The hosts, Wendi and Dave, really know how to make you feel at home from the get-go. They are extremely knowledgeable regarding the Big Island, and helpful beyond all measure. Their home is beautifully furnished. Our upstairs room was comfortable in every way, especially the bed. The house is situated in a... More
