We came here for our honeymoon vacation. We wanted somewhere cheap and nice and after extensive internet searches, decided on this place. So glad we did our homework. This is an undiscovered gem. The place feels like a quirky treehouse with many beautiful details. E.g., our room has a suspended hammock chair with wind chimes -- when you sit in... More

I just came back from a 4-night stay at the Dragonfly and it was spectacular. The location is easy to find, just south of Kona and Captain Cook. 5 minutes from a beach (rocky coral) with epic snorkeling and a bay that's frequented by dolphins - on my last day I had a chance to swim with the dolphins, absolutely...

My daughter and I stayed at the Dragonfly for 5 blissful days in October, and I couldn't have picked a better spot for my first visit to Hawaii. We chose the Dolphin room specifically for the outdoor bathroom and we loved it. There's nothing like showering outside in the morning, smelling the coastal air and listening to all the birds...

Staying at the Dragonfly Ranch was a lovely experience at a wonderful, quiet and relaxed place. The rooms are decorated with love and phantasy, each with its very unique atmosphere. There was a lovely warm-hearted team that takes care of the guests, giving any possible kind of support with love and good humour. Breakfast had been a wide choice of... More

My husband chose this place on-line because it had been recommended as a good place for bird-watchers. We have been staying at B&B's for 26 years and I have to say that this was the first time I ever had a negative experience.There are treacherous, uneven stone stairs which get narrower as you go up, and no hand rail.

What a comfortable, relaxing place, just up the road from the sacred site of Honaunau. A perfect place for a healing retreat. Just an advisory-- the Dolphin room is separated from the main living area by just a paper thin wall, and all sounds and even quiet talking resonate right through. The other rooms are quieter. They have a 9pm... More

If you are looking for a more unconventional, down-to-earth place to stay on the big island, here it is! The Dragonfly Ranch is such a perfect place to relax (I laid down to rest for a few minutes before the sun even went down, and slept through most of the night! Oops...). We stayed in the Dragonfly Room, which was... More

My husband and I stayed in the wonderful Honeymoon Suite at Dragonfly Ranch last Jan 2013, it was a wonderful experience to wake up with the song of the birds and an amazing view of the pacific ocean.

My wife and I stayed at the Dragonfly for 10 days 9 nights. In a world where technology overshadows the beauty of nature and the satisfaction of genuine human connections, this ranch is a respite, a chance to commune with nature and island culture. While we were there we met traveling artists, musicians, archeologists, boat captains, lava walkers, a magician... More

At the Dragonfly, we do everything we can to avoid having guests who are unhappy with their experience. We discourage bug phobic people to stay here. At the same time, we want to use all natural means to not have bugs bug people. After this couple left, we found that, due to the shifting earth, the screen behind the bed... More
