Friendly and personalised service, I really enjoyed talking to Wendi and Dave who were great and the other guests were all lovely too. The breakfast is fantastic and something different every day. Anything you could want throughout your stay or for an activity is there. I had help with tours that I had issues with and was given lifts into... More

Not since we B&B'd our way along South Africa's Garden Route in 2004, have we experienced anything that remotely approaches the standards of care,cuisine,hospitality and ambience you will find here. But they have put our Garden Route travels in the shade, and we find it difficult to imagine how anyone could do better. It's all the extras available to make... More

Mahalo Team Australia for your nice review of our home. Thanks for mentioning to our future guests about the need for a car. It is called "The Big Island" for a reason. We're very happy to hear you enjoyed the new feature of our Nigori Room. The Japanese Zen Garden and Koi Pond right out side the Nigori bedroom door... More

We came as a couple, and when we regretfully left a week later, we were part of a loving and wonderful extended family. Wendi and Dave took us in, wined and dined us, planned excursions for us, made sure we set off with the proper equipment ( chairs, towels snorkel gear, water and snacks) and most importantly, a kiss farewell....

"Ohana". The Hawaiian word for family. Thank you so very much for choosing to stay with us and feeling as though you were part of our Ohana. It is our Kuleana, or responsibility to our guests to make them feel at home and to share our magical island with them. We are extremely happy the 2 of you were able... More

I had the privilege of hosting a 5 day Transformational Retreat on Joy this March at Honu Kai B&B, and the experience for me, my team and our participants was exceptional. By the end of our Retreat we had a new standard of what a space and a host should be like; Wendy & Dave and Honu Kai are that... More

Everything about the Honu Kai Bed and Breakfast says ZEN. From the beautiful landscaping with many water features, to the lovely tinkling of wind chimes and the fragrant flowers, the ambiance of Honu Kai appeals to all the senses. Breakfast is a culinary delight with fresh fruit, pastries and a delicious entree each morning. The owners, Wendi and Dave do... More

Our family, from disparate parts of the globe, spent a long time planning a memorable 3-week vacation in the Hawaiian Islands. Keeping 2 late teens, 2 parents and 2 grandparents happy might have been a challenge but Kauai was truly beautiful and Oahu was fun and had memorable moments, our accommodations in both were fine, but nothing compared to the...

Mahalo Nui Wendy for your review of our home and our island. It was so great to be a part of your family's visit to Hawaii. We feel it is our Kuliana, or responsibility, to make sure visitors have the very best experience possible on our island. We are also very happy the family enjoyed our 3 course varied morning...

I never thought of myself as a fan of B&Bs until I stayed at the Honu Kai! Wendi and Dave were great hosts! I loved all the healthy & delicious breakfast meals Wendi prepared. It felt like heaven every morning when we enjoyed our breakfast while listening to the birds singing! Dave provided us with a lot of tips on... More

It was a magical place, Wendi and Dave provided an excellent menu and the variety of fresh fruits and a main course that is every chefs pleasure. We woke to the sounds of birds and watched the geckos eating their breakfast of sweet jam. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and our beds were very comfortable, we stayed seven days and... More

Thank you Christine for first choosing to come and visit our island all the way from England, and second for choosing to stay with us and writing a review of our home.

There is so much magic at Honu Kai that it is hard to know where to begin when sharing about this gorgeous B&B. - Property: Lush, beautifully manicured and intimately secluded, the peaceful energy of this space will make you forget how close you are to all that Kona has to offer. It took us roughly 8 - 15 minutes... More
