Wow, we just finished a great 5 nite stay at Mermaid Dreams where the innkeepers took great care of us. Bud and Heather are great hosts and have thought of everything. Great rooms with huge beds, well appointed. A substantial breakfast (Bud's specialty) with many local specialties included. Heather knows alot about the island, especially water activities and has GREAT advice. You can use their snorkeling equipment for your adventure. They really make you feel like you are at home! Oh and don't forget the COFFEE - its the bomb! 100% Kona and I ooked forward to it every morning!

We had a wonderful stay at the Mermaid Dreams B&B. The house is beautiful and the hosts (Heather and Bud) just make you feel at home. Fresh home made breakfast with local products are the perfect starter for your day. Snorkelling gear, beach chairs and much more can be used freely during your stay. Highly recommend this place!

Heather and Bud's B&B provided a most welcoming and wonderful experience for our first time to the Big Island. From the fresh-picked fruit from their garden, to the delicious Kona coffee, to the snorkel gear available to borrow -- they really thought of everything. They genuinely care about their guests' experience and provided many great recommendations and tips for activities around the island. I would love to come back someday!

Lovely property, conveniently located to the wonderful area south of Kona. Energetic and engaged hosts, who passed on lots of local tips and info, with a unique twist--Heather is into and knows all things about mermaids- she even let me borrow a mermaid tail to try swimming with it in the pool. Big plus was that she arranged for truly excellent bodyworkers to come to the property to provide us with fantastic massage and a new-version of Watsu (water shiatsu). They have their own pool and facility for massage outdoors.

We stayed in this place for 3 nights. Hosts are wife and husband who are super friendly and hospital. Very nice house, surrounded by beautiful garden. Breakfast was delicious: fresh organic products as cheese, fruits, jams, yogurts, hot handmaid option changing every day (as frittata or pancakes). Room is comfortable and has everything what's needed. Cons. You need to be sharp 8am at breakfast. Or everybody will be waiting for you and don't start. This is because host is doing presentation of food options for today. I think this presentation could be skipped and more relaxing timing (f.ex from 8am till 9am) would be more convenient for people on vacation.
