My wife and I stayed for four nights at the beginning of January. We showed up and just wanted to sleep the first night after a long flight. We were welcomed by Wendi and Dave, given directions to a nearby restaurant for dinner, and made to feel at home right away. During our stay, the breakfasts were excellent, although served... More

Mahalo for your review and for choosing to stay with us. After a long day of exploring and experiencing our magical island, we like to make our guests feel like they're coming home, and not just coming back to the place they're staying. We're glad you enjoyed our 3 course breakfasts in which we take great pride in serving everyday,... More

We stayed at Honu Kai B&B just after Xmas for 3 amazing days. I picked the B&B based on online reviews, including Trip Advisor. From the moment we arrived, Wendi and Dave proved why all the reviews rated them so high and why they're number 5 B&B in all of US (and 1st in Hawaii, of course). Because they were... More

My wife and I found the best place on the island. The breakfasts are to die for. Not only do they taste out of this world, but their presentation is right out of a five star restaurant. The facilities are top notch and very peaceful and calming. Wendi and Dave have great recommendations for sights to see and know the... More

We had the good fortune to spend 5 nights with Wendi & Dave. We selected their B&B based upon TripAdvisor reviews. Everything the reviewers said was true and then some. There are many, many reasons for the outstanding reviews. Wendi & Dave are the perfect hosts. They know what you need before you know what you need. Maps and guides... More

Mahalo Jim & Marry for your Christmas review of Honu Kai. We enjoy doing Christmas breakfast island style, with champagne and a large side of Aloha. The 5 nights you stayed seemed to fly by, but we appreciated you staying as long as you did and allowing us that time to share our island with you. Have a great 2015... More

We found this b&b on trip advisor and what a jewel of a find. Wendi and Dave have thought of every possible thing you could require and provide it for you. They have detailed information for every tourist attraction, maps, etc. We were flabbergasted at the wonderful breakfasts, not only the variety but the quantity of food. The breakfast will... More

It's no wonder Honu Kai is rated the #1 B&B on the big island. What a pleasant stay we had! Wendi and Dave are super friendly and hospitable and it was like coming home everyday when we returned to Honu Kai. We were there over Christmas and the house was decorated beautifully. We were even treated with a Christmas ornament... More

Mahalo Vivian, We couldn't have asked for better guests! It was great having you stay at Honu Kai and letting us be a part of your Hawaii vacation. We are very proud of our #1 rating, but it truly comes from guests like you who allow us to share our knowledge and love of our island. We've got more magical... More

We chose to stay here because of the high rating on Trip Advisor, and all the wonderful things people have said in the reviews here are true. Wendi and Dave are passionate about the Big Island and love sharing their enthusiasm and expertise with guests. Two of the other couples at the Inn were repeat guests -- one had been... More

Mahalo Laura for your review of our Honu Kai B&B. We are looking forward to having the both of you back and joining the ranks of our many repeat guests returning to the island. It's an honor to have awards, newspaper articles and high ratings, but the biggest honor for us is having guests return to Honu Kai as friends.... More

I can easily see why this is the #1 B&B in the area. We absolutely loved our stay, Wendy and Dave were the perfect hosts, our room was comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing! After we left we stayed at a retreat that cost over $800 a night, the chef there could easily take some cooking lessons from Wendy and... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Honu Kai, B&B twice. We wouldn’t dream of going elsewhere when in the Kona area. We LOVE this place and here are the reasons why… 1. The owners, Dave & Wendi, are long-time residents of the Big Island, there really isn’t anything they don’t know about the island. Plus they’ve personally done... More

My wife & I stayed for three days at the Honu Kai B&B in Nov/Dec 2014. It was one of the most pleasant stays we have had. Wendy & David go out of their way to make every guest feel like they are part of the family. The many little things they do are too numerous to mention, from packing... More

You'll be happy to know we were thinking of you this morning while serving your favorite Banana Rum Waffles which I picked fresh off our tree this morning. The bananas of course, not the rum! Mahalo for the compliment about feeling like family, which in Hawaiian is 'Ohana'. Many visitors to Honu Kai arrive as guests, and like you, many... More
