We spent a total of four nights here -- one in the garden room and three in the main suite. Based on the description, I was expecting the garden room to be small and cramped. It wasn't in the slightest. It was a large room with a adjoining toilet. If you do stay in the garden room, make sure you... More

Due to a scheduling conflict with our time share, we booked here for one night. If you're looking for serenity, look no further! We stayed in the cottage, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is private and you almost feel like you're camping, but with all the amenities you don't get in a tent! Breakfast was great, lot's of options, and... More

Overall a very pleasant stay at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation, we spent most of our time exploring the island and therefore didn't truly avail of all the amenities available. Greg and Michael were extremely friendly and helpful throughout, the breakfast was excellent - especially the French toast! One word of advice - make sure you rent a car whilst staying... More

Ka'awa Loa Plantation is a MUST stay when you visit Hawaii. In fact, wherever you intend to visit on any of the islands, make it a point to fly out to the Big Island and stay at this B&B. The whole experience will be once in a lifetime (except that you will want to return as soon as possible). From... More

My husband and I spent a night here on the big island. We love the tranquility and the gorgeous ocean view. Did I tell you that they have the best breakfast we've ever had in a B&B, homemade quiche, home grown fruit/smoothie, juicy sausage, and one of the best KONA coffee we've ever had on the big island? The caretaker... More

Wow!! The highlight of my vacation in Hawaii. Two nights there were not enough. I could spend a month there. You will feel like family and your hosts know everything about the island. Breakfast was great. There is nothing that is not thought of to make you feel at home

The Ka Loa Plantation B & B location makes it an ideal place to sit back and take in the views. The B & B is located in Captain Cook and is in a residential area on the hillside. The backyard and back porch give you amazing views of the town and the ocean. Totally enjoyed sitting outside on the... More

​We spent the first part of our honeymoon at Ka'awa Loa Plantation and did not want to leave! Our flight was arriving very late and we were welcomed by a personal letter on the door for instructions for our room and a late night snack of macadamia nut pineapple upside down cake. ​The open air rooms were very clean and...

Excellent B&B in quiet Captain Cook. Awesome views, amazing breakfasts, hot tub, outdoor showers...this place is fantastic! The hosts are super friendly and helpful. They had tons of great suggestions and were eager to hear of our adventures at the end of each day. There's a trail nearby that leads down to the bay for some great snorkeling. I'd travel... More

My husband and I stayed at the plantation guesthouse for the first three days of our honeymoon in June 2016. We could not have chosen a better place to start our romantic adventure in Hawaii. The house is absolutely stunning, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is divine, and features lots of yummy fruits grown directly on the property. Rooms... More
