I spent 5 nights at the Lilikoi Inn. This lovely, homey BnB is the real Hawaii! Located a 10-minute drive in the hills above Kona-Kailua, the property is surrounded by gorgeous tropical plants, flowers, coffee and fruit trees, frogs and butterflies. If you’re looking for an authentic non-touristic Hawaiian experience this is the place for you. Proprietors Shai and Trina (and their dogs, cats, and chickens) will greet you. No need for a room key - you’re part of the family at the Lilikoi. The rooms are cozy, comfortable & quiet with WiFi and tv if you want that. Each day starts with a creative home-cooked breakfast on a lovely lanai overlooking the hillside and Kona coast, including delicious Kona coffee picked and processed on-site. Take off for the day - Shai and Trina can provide directions to funky local towns, hiking spots or beaches, and can lend you beach chairs/masks/snorkels for the day. At the end of the day, returning to the Inn to relax on the lanai or in your room to get ready for tomorrow is the Hawaiian experience you’ve been dreaming of. Don’t wait! It’s marvelous.

Trina and Shai were the most lovely and welcoming. The inn is nestled in a steep maze of fruit trees off the main highway, and three cats parade breakfast every morning--Romeo, Juliet, and Mac Yerlick. I will remember best Shai's admirable dedication to his craft--he cooked for us every morning with care and attention to detail, using ingredients that came from the very grounds we stood on. Trina's stories completed every meal. From the outlook, patient blues swallow Kona in the distance, where ocean meets sky and neither can decide where to begin or end. Geckos play hide and seek along the perimeter of a quiet paradise, reminiscent of a home I've never been to before. It was a delight to end our stay in Hawai'i here. Thank you for your hospitality.

I avoided traveling during the 2020 holidays in compliance with pandemic guidance, but by mid January 2021, with some trepidation, I decided to return to Lilikoi Inn on the Big Island of Hawaii. No regrets! In fact, I extended my stay. Once through the stress and rigamarole of testing before boarding my west-bound flight, I was happy to receive another COVID test upon arrival at Kona International. After that, I felt relieved to continue with safety recommendations, such as masking, being shared throughout the island. That is, at Lilikoi Inn and most everywhere else I went around the Big Island, I felt very safe from both contracting or spreading disease. Lilikoi Inn is very spacious and airy with most shared space being outdoors. Shai and Trina are limiting the number of guests, performing elevated cleaning protocols, and it was great to find parking and no crowds at my favorite beaches! I feel extremely fortunate to have 'escaped' the stresses of mainland COVID for 10 days in Paradise. Highly recommend.

Shai and Trina are incredibly hard-working and thoughtful hosts. Shai makes amazing and elaborate breakfasts for the guests with fruits straight from the garden (you will have the best papaya of your life here!!). The inn is tucked away in what seems like a personal, beautiful tropical jungle. Watching the sunset over the ocean every night out on the lanai made me never want to leave. Highly recommend!
