Some friends highly recommended this B&B for our first visit to the big island. This was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a week on Maui. Michael, Greg and Hannah were the perfect hosts during our stay. The breakfasts were amazing. Banana pancakes and macadamia nut French toast along with several fresh fruits-bananas, pineapple, strawberries and avocado were...

Greg and Michael are great hosts at this beautiful plantation. Our room was immaculate and the house itself has so much character. The house is very beautifully decorated and well maintained. The breakfast was terrific. Hopefully you get to try the banana crusted french toast! The driveway is very steep. Take it slow and it will be just fine! :-)

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation. The view was amazing. Our hostess, Hannah, was very welcoming and made a great breakfast. The rooms were perfect and we had a wonderful time.

Loved staying at Ka'awa Loa Plantation. View from the lanai was amazing. Breakfast every morning was a treat - fresh fruit picked from the plantation plus coffee produced on the grounds. Michael, Gregory and Hannah were charming hosts and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Highly recommend this B&B. We would definitely come back!

Quiet setting on the hill above Captain Cook monument, beautiful sunset on the verandah, great breakfast with fresh local fruit. Efficient owners and good service. I recommend staying a couple nights to relax or go snorkeling at Keakekua bay by Captain Cook monument, it is 2 km from the trailhead. To be fair, the breakfast is great but the coffee...
