From the moment we arrived at Ohi’a Park Estate on the Big Island, we felt welcome. The care and attention that our hosts put into making our stay as pleasant as possible was outstanding. We’ve travelled extensively to many parts of the globe, but nowhere have we had a better bed and breakfast experience.
The three-acre estate is at about 1600 feet above sea level, with well-maintained lawns and plants, in a peaceful, quiet neighborhood. Our suite was large and comfortable, with a contemporary shower and spacious bathroom. The beds and bedding are truly luxurious, and with the windows open to the gentle breezes, sleeping was wonderful. In addition to our suite, there is an expansive deck from which we enjoyed sea views, and a beautiful sunset.
The breakfasts on the outdoor terrace included a wonderful mix of fresh island fruits, eggs as you like them, choices of yogurts and breads, and coffee to die for! My wife is gluten free, and our hosts went to great lengths to accommodate her special dietary needs.
Our visit to Hawaii on this occasion was to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday. Not only did our hosts decorate the breakfast table in birthday style, they gave her gifts and roses! Over the top – just fabulous!
Every evening included either pre-dinner wine, or a nightcap, during which time we enjoyed their company and ideas for our next days adventure. They know a great deal about the island and the best ways to enjoy it, and we certainly followed and appreciated their advice.
We recommend this bed and breakfast without reservation to all – and particularly to those looking for somewhere very special to celebrate a life event.
