I too scanned the reviews prior to booking and then again after our return home. I appreciated seeing reviews that confirmed our discomfort in the rules and expectations of the host. We have traveled extensively and have never before felt uncomfortable due to the inn keeper's personality. The rules were not extensive but were clearly meant as rules and not requests. For example, I was confused by the need to sit in an assigned place on the lanai for breakfast since there were few guests staying there at the time. We are not rude guests and did not expect a rude host.
Aside from the personality issue, I was very impressed with the view although the rooms are small and noise traveled easily between them. I'm certain Hans has reviewed many other B&B room rates when stating their's are the cheapest, but I did find other BnBs less expensive with more comfortable atmospheres. I would recommend Hale Maluhia Country Inn in Kona.
