We are blessed at Akiko's BB&B, with guests like Parrish and Adam, who allow and welcome the spirit of our wee village, our rain forests and streams and winds of Hamakaua, our people, our craggy cliffs, our verdant landscape, to touch their hearts, to awaken their ancient memories of childhood. Mahalo and thank-you Parrish and Adam for sharing and leaving your love for our beloved Hawaii. This poem sums up what you left behind : Zen Guest As a guest, leave no Trace, No Face.

Sending you love and deep gratitude, the wailea ancestors and akiko

What made it so wonderful was a combination of the setting and the host. It is set amidst lush vegetation in the tiny community of Wailea, saved and maintained by the lively and vibrant Miss Akiko. Every day she brought us flowers fresh-picked from her land. And every morning,

Akiko is such a gracious host. The bedroom I stayed in was very simple but very comfy. The morning breakfasts were amazing, fresh fruits, yogurt, homemade breads or muffins. Coffee and tea. The bed and breakfast location is about 15 miles out of Hilo in a very small village.
