Immensely enjoyed my stay, the house sits above Cook's Bay with several rooms and big porch to watch the sunset. Michael, Greg and Hanna were great hosts throughout our stay. The house and room was immaculate; driveway and parking is a interesting challenge however if you needed a weekend to get away from it all; this is perfect

Greg was very helpful over email before our trip and Michael was an exceptional host who was full of good advice about the local area, history and cuisine.

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!
