“Great for the independent traveler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This B & B was great for a couple or family who like a bit of independence. The Plumera Suite similar to a small apartment. There was a masterbedroom with the best kingsized bed we experienced in all of the big island. Then there was another room with two twin beds, a full sized bathroom with a large counter and a kitchen/livingroom area. Instead of a cooked breakfast served at a designated time, we were provided, eggs, fruit, bread, milk and juice and had the freedom of enjoying whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted it on the balcony overlooking the Kona Coast. The Boynton's gave great advice on where to dine and what attractions to see. The only thing I would change is maybe add an extra towel or two. Great value for your vacation money.

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!

My partner and i stayed here over the christmas holidaze and loved it. it really isn't a B&B in the traditional sense, rather an entire floor of a house overlooking the Kona coast - two separate bedrooms, nice living area, a full kitchen, a nice master and bath and porch along with a hot tub. the Boyntons don't bother you with small talk and intrusions. they stock the larder and fridge prior to your arrival with breakfast goodies and if you run low you simply walk next door to their house (all on the same property) and either tell them what you need or leave a note. when you return they will have restocked the supplies.

this is literally 5 minutes up the road from the Wal Mart, Safeway, and Kona Natural Foods stores in the Kona Shopping Center. it is a great location with easy access to Waimea, Kona, and the highway leading south and north.

we are VERY CHOOSEY about where we stay. the Boyntons will have repeat guests for sure!

Aloha,

Whether you are vacationing, working on Hawaii Island, or you need a quiet and secluded place to write or relax this is the place to be. It is beautiful and the majestic mountain and ocean views are very serene, especially during the spectacular sunsets. It is very private and the Boynton's are warm and gracious people. Well worth the 5-10 minute drive up the mountain.

The hot tub is a big plus. I suggest during sunset hours.
