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

Absolutely fabulous stay for our first night on the big island. Breakfast on the back porch was delicious! I've never eaten blueberry cornbread before and I'm from the south! Yum! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! Wish we had booked for a longer stay!

All of the 5 star reviews on this piece of heaven are right on the mark. We typically don't frequent B&B's but this one is exceptional in its size and privacy. The attention to detail and knowledge of the island for dining and activities is exceptional. Don't miss this one.

The hosts are warm and accommodating, and the place is very well managed. The setting, overlooking the coastline, could not have been more beautiful. The design embodies Hawaiian elegance while remaining homey and comfortable. I chose Ka'awa Loa as the last stop on my tour around the Big Island, and it was the perfect choice. I was able to relax... More
