This inn was one of the highlights of our wonderful trip to Hawaii. We spent 3 nights here as we explored the Kailua-Kona area. The inn is on a coffee farm with plenty of fruit trees and beautiful walking paths. You also have a tremendous view of the coast below. The inn itself is gorgeous and feels like a home away from home. We stayed in the Plumeria Suite and it was wonderful! The bed is very comfortable and the bedroom makes you fell very relaxed. The sitting area provides a good view of the grounds and is a great place to read a book. Even the bathroom was great! The staff was very attentive during our stay and always took time to check in on us. One of the evenings we took a long tour to Mauna Kea for the sunset and stargazing. When we came back, we discovered that the staff had taken the effort to put the evening snack on our nightstands. It was the little touches like this that set this inn apart from any other place that we had stayed previously. The location is perfect for activities down in Kailua-Kona. We did two snorkeling tours and the Mauna Kea tour and we were only a 15 minute drive from the various departure and pick up points. Since the inn is at a higher elevation than the coast, you get relief from the sometimes hot and humid temperatures. At night you do hear the Coqui Frogs but they aren't overwhelming like elsewhere on the island. The inn does provide complimentary earplugs if the sounds of nature are too much for light sleepers. We also took full advantage of the complimentary laundry services that they provide. It allowed us to pack lighter than what we normally would have done. The morning breakfast service was great and we had the opportunity to try fresh fruit that was picked fresh from their grounds. We highly recommend this inn for anyone staying on the Kona coast.
