Small coffee farm set in a lush area near local attractions of beaches, hikes, snorkeling areas yet remote. The breakfasts are gourmet and everyone leaves the breakfast table with great ideas for the day. The big island has a lot to offer and is full of magical places. Come and experience paradise on the big island of Hawaii! We look forward to your visit at the Lilikoi Inn. Trina and Shai

My friend and I came to Lilikoi inn and it truly felt like home. We were greeted with smoothies, a Picturesque view and birds and lush green surroundings. The hosts were so welcoming and the room was beautiful... the bed was a dream. The best part though was the incredible breakfast made by Shai who is a chef. I can’t wait to bring my husband back to experience this place and the beauty of The Big Island.

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We enjoyed meeting you and hope you do come back with your husband! It is real winter here now, so the whales are all around and there are some big waves but it is still warm most of the day and we enjoyed the beach yesterday! Hope you have a mild winter and come back soon! with aloha , Trina

We had the most wonderful stay while in Kona. Trina and Shai treated us like family. Shari's breakfasts are absolutely top class. He even sent avocados and bananas to eat during the day out. We did a hike, coffee plantation tour, snorkeling and beach visit. Everyday Shai would give a list v of options we can do and possible alternatives. I'm sure we would not have enjoyed it so much without their assistance. The rooms were clean and comfy. It's a tropical setting with lots of local plants. When we needed any help, Shai was there. The most gracious hosts ever. Would highly recommend staying here while in Kona.

Our booking wasn’t properly handled. After making reservations 5 months in advance and paying a deposit, the owners claimed no knowledge. However they were able to accommodate us for two nights. Unfortunately there were no amenities in the room. No microwave, no refrigerator, no coffee pot. Before entering the room we were asked to always remove our shoes. Floors were disgustingly dirty as was the bathroom and shower. Woke up with a cat sleeping in our room because interior door did not latch. Cat hairs all over outdoor furniture chair pads. Breakfast was excellent and Shai was extremely informative and cordial. However his wife Trina seemed to be self-centered and overbearing. We were unable to have a nice conversation with the other guests because she kept interrupting. We would not recommend this place.

yes, we are very sorry about the booking. There was a serious computer problem which it took me two months to solve. I hired three different programmers but few know about the php language which needed to be updated on my website. So, I did not get the final confirmation. There were other guests who contacted me to find out if everything was ok but I heard nothing from this guest and was unaware of their arrival. Luckily, I had a free room and gave them a free upgrade to our nicest room. The room had just been cleaned, and it was ready for guests as we checked it and spruced it ourselves. I am not sure what you are referring too. We are sorry about our friendly cats, and there are ways to lock the doors from the inside since they are able to open unlocked doors. We always talk at the breakfast table about places to go, beaches to enjoy and sometimes people are talking at the same time, it is not right to make judgements about people you do not know when this is about reviewing the hotel. I think you had a good stay, with a great breakfast, comfortable bed and fresh coffee from our garden. We are sure you most likely enjoyed our lovely island of Hawaii. That is what counts! with aloha, lilikoi inn.

We had a great stay in this wonderful Inn 500 meters above sea level and Kona. Sourrounded by lush vegetation (fruit trees and coffee plants) and offering a great view towards the coast, it was a lovely and relaxing place. The hosts were wonderful and we were served every morning a delicious home cooked breakfast with fresh fruits and avocados from their plantation.

From the moment we arrived and Shai welcomed us by helping us with our luggage, taking us to our room, and providing us with smoothies, we knew we had chosen the right place to stay. The Lilikoi Inn B&B is surrounded by natural beauty and has a relaxed and open-air feel. The lanai was a beautiful setting to start the day enjoying Shai's gourmet breakfasts with 100% Kona coffee, and also a relaxing spot in the evening for sunset with a glass of wine.Every morning Shai and Trina provided us with recommendations and directions for places to go and restaurants. Shai made a point of telling us to take his cell # in case we needed any further help finding places as we explored. The guest kitchen has everything you might need and also had a tray of fresh tropical fruits and avocados that all guests are welcome to eat. We enjoyed a walk around the coffee farm, learning about growing coffee and seeing all the fruit trees that Shai also grows. Thank you, Shai and Trina, for making our stay in Kailua-Kona such a special one.
