Boynton's B&B was our fourth and final accommodation on our Aug 2011 Hawaiian vacation...and served as our base for the western side of the Big Island. It did not disappoint!
The two bedroom Plumeria suite was the perfect size for our family of four, with the two twin beds in the second bedroom working out just right for our two teens (ages 13 & 15). The suite itself is basically the entire main floor of the Boynton's house with the aforementioned bedrooms, a good-sized bathroom, and a living/kitchen area.
The suite was spotless upon our arrival and the kitchen counter, cupboards and fridge were stocked with breakfast fixings that easily lasted us for the three nights of our stay. Unlike most B&B's, Boynton's B&B has a do-it-yourself breakfast which suited us just fine as we were winding down our vacation with a last few relaxing days. Each morning, we had a lovely breakfast of fruit, cereal, eggs, etc at the table on the front deck overlooking the Kona coast.
Actually, the view from the deck was just amazing and a highlight of our stay here. Although quite a few miles away from the ocean, the location of the B&B up the side of the mountain allowed for a gorgeous perspective. It was great just sitting on the deck (or in the hot tub) with a good book and enjoying a beautiful sunset.
We never did actually meet the Boynton's (they were on vacation themselves at the time). However, their housesitter, Kathee, greeted us warmly and was there whenever we had some questions. Coco (the dog) was also very friendly and strolled by to visit a few times to make sure we were doing OK.
As long as you don't mind being 10 minutes out of town and away from the ocean, we would definitely recommend Boynton's B&B!
