This small B&B feels like a retreat and a home from home. Wendi is an upbeat and gracious host who can't do enough to help you and her breakfasts are absolutely divine. The rooms here are simple and tasteful and what was really neat about the set up of this bed and breakfast was the kit that Wendi and Dave... More

My husband and I stayed here in two different rooms, the Mahina Suite & the Mala Hale Bungalow. Both were beautiful, luxurious rooms! Fully stocked and clean as a whistle! You can't go wrong with ANY of the rooms here! Wendi and Dave were exquisite hosts, meticulously attending to every detail of every nicety imaginable! The food tastes as amazing... More

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.

Mahalo Charlotte for reviewing our Sister Property, the condo at the exclusive Mauna Lani Resort. We purchased this property not as an investment nor as a rental property, but as our home which we lived in until we purchased the Bed & Breakfast. We left our condo home just as it was when we lived there, so guests staying at... More

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. It is very quant with the Hawaiian décor, and the landscaping was breathtaking. My only... More

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. Normally at our elevation of a 1000 feet, the Summer to Fall months... More

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. The most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Stayed... More

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.
