This was the most absolute dream staying here. The property was extraordinary, the rooms were comfortable and had amazing views. The breakfast was great, it was the best smoothie we had on the island! Greg, Michael and Hannah made our stay better than I could have imagined. We booked last minute and they helped accommodate us and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We didn’t want to leave. I can’t wait to return to this beautiful place! Thank you!

Wow what a great decision to stay at Ka’awa Loa, located about 15 minutes south of Kona in the area of Captain Cook. Don’t be scared by the steep driveway because a beautiful plantation home with very special innkeepers, Hannah, Michael & Greg welcome each guest with open arms. The first floor suite has a full bathroom and the guest rooms on the second floor each have a small bathroom with a toilet and sink and then there is a shared HUGE bathroom with a tiled shower just down the hall. All rooms were occupied during our four night stay but each guest was quick with there showering and we never had to wait but a few minutes before it was our turn. Each morning a beautiful breakfast buffet was served from 7am to 9:30am which included a different entree each day and a wonderful assortment of fruits, many from the plantations property. The plantation has a huge wrap around porch where we sat and enjoyed our breakfast with a gorgeous view of Kealakekua Bay below. When you’re out and about a must visit is Manini Beach just below Ka’awa Loa, but go first thing in the morning because parking is minimal. Lots of sun and shade available and a nice quiet park to just relax. After a day of touring we always looked forward to returning to Ka’awa Loa for a beautiful sunset and indulge in a yummy homemade dessert on the porch.

Stayed here for a week with family. What a gorgeous estate. The hosts are phenomenal. We really enjoyed our time. The location is about 35-45 mins south of the airport, it is pretty close to the Captain Cook hiking trail. It's quiet and beautiful. The breakfast is tasty and healthy. One quick pro-tip: The BNB has a lot of supplies that guests can use (sun chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling stuff, fins, etc) so you wont have to bring your own or spend money renting them. Two-step and Captain Cook are both pretty close snorkeling locations to the venue.

Absolutely phenomenal place. Greg and Hannah made it feel like home for us. We were looking for one night to stay after a horrible stay at another place and called to book the little Cottage. We arrived at 11am so the rooms weren't ready (3pm check in) but they let us drop off the bags and have free use of their beach equipment and outdoor shower (hot and cold water, soap/shampoo provided). The Cottage was super cute, with private bathroom and kitchenette, cable TV and relaxing atmosphere. Very private and away from the main house - perfect for a couple. The main plantation home was stunning and the view from the porch/deck (lanai) was wonderful. You can see some wild chickens and geckos. Hannah was the nicest host we've ever had, always patient and looking to meet our needs, she cooked a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and sausage and a baked egg dish, along with bread and muffins and all you can drink POG. At night they will leave a baked goodie tray before the leave (banana bread + pineapple cake were what we had) On the day we were leaving, we had a late flight and Greg/Hannah were generous to allow us to leave our bags there so we could spend time on the beach, and then come back and use their outdoor shower and fresh up before going on our flight! Wonderful stay, will definitely stay there our entire time next trip. PS: Make sure to pet the dog and the orange kitty that roams around

not much to add to what was already said - this is a spectacular property which is very well taken care of and has style in everything they do: the rooms are beautifully decorated, the brkf is simply spectacular with their own coffee, freshly prepared bacon, eggs, french toast , fruits , freshly squeezed juice etc which you take on a wonderful terrace with unparalleled views. there is not much to do on the property but to enjoy the view and relax but everything is within the short drive so we were very happy to stay few days. the owners are nice and friendly and we had a few chats with Michael who gave us great tips and is a fun guy to be around. we cannot wait to return!
