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

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. They strive for perfection and treat everyone like their best friends. We stayed in the Lani Suite. It's like being in a treehouse.... More

Mahalo for your review of our Honu Kai B&B and for joining the list of previous guests who also feel we "strive for perfection". We make this strive with all of our guests, not because perfection is our goal, but rather because it is our standard. We love our island and love to share it with all the people who... More

We loved staying with Wendi and Kona Dave and Soni, at the Honu Kai B+B. Great people - so helpful and fun. Great breakfasts also. We couldn't have asked for more cordial hosts. The surroundings are also beautiful!

It really is difficult to add anything which hasn't been said already about Honu Kai. But it is all true. The gardens are exotic and tropical. The lanai is relaxing and spacious. The room was incredibly comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bathroom had a great shower and lovely products. Breakfast was delicious and sociable. But what really is the cherry... More

We make a habit of staying at B&B's, and this one is just paradise. The entire place is like a spa - there are fountains everywhere, with soft music, beautiful plants...it is one of the most relaxing places I've ever been to. The room itself was awesome (we stayed in Nigori). A beautiful bathroom with a great shower and tub,... More
