We stayed for 4 nights on the Rainbow Plantation and got the Fern Room. It’s not equipped super-modern but was clean. The highlight for us was the ocean view from the room. The facility on a former macadamia nut plantation is beautiful with a koi pond and nice paths between the buildings. There’s an outdoor kitchen and snorkeling stuff to... More

We were ready for more private space after sharing a room in the last place (which was also excellent). Here we had an extra bed in the loft with amazing views. Our own living area. And own fridge. The breakfast each morning was great with fresh fruit and homemade bread, fresh juice. The only downside is that we read in... More

Very nice place, exactly like on pictures: lots of rainforest plants and animals, quiet area and nice ambiance. Room is Well equiped and clean. Christian is really helpful with informing on, and booking the activities for us. For people needing calm to sleep: Maybe ask for a room which is not below christian's house, as we can hear everything and... More

We rented the crow's nest for 2 night and it is big! It is also really nice, gecko everywhere and big hibiscus everywhere! Staff is really nice and helpful! I recommend this place to everyone! Free parking, free wifi, breakfast included and cheaper when you pay cash. 2 cats are walking around too! There is a commune kitchen with a... More

We arrived at the Rainbow Plantation at night. What a surprise when we woke up the next morning realising what was around us. It was wonderful. The peacock room was perfect but what we appreciated the most was our host, Christian and his team. Every morning they made a wonderful breakfast. After the breakfast we always had some talkings with... More

We stayed at the Rainbow Plantation B&B for 4 night on February 2015. The room we had was the Jungle Queen, a converted boat. The accommodation was very nice, clean and unique. As the name implies, this is a plantation surrounded with nut and fruit trees. If you're looking for the typical touristy resort, you're in the wrong place. Christian,... More

After enduring the crowds in Waikiki for a conference, my partner and I were fortunate to book a quiet suite at this rustic B&B. Although it's located on the dry side of the island, the lush surroundings of the B&B made us feel like we were in a rainforest. We stayed in the Hale Huna suite, which has a futon... More

The pros: This place is charming and funky, complete with a koi pond, free ranging chickens, and a beautiful peacock named Romeo. It's eclectic and rustic which usually suits my taste quite nicely. The staff we encountered were kind, courteous, and helpful. The cons: 1) Cleanliness is not great - and I'm no neat freak, believe me! I've stayed in... More

This guest stayed here in April. Normally we were supposed to be closed for business but some guests wanted to stay with limited service (no breakfast for example) so we decided to let them stay here. I was gone and had to rely on my assistants to help out and take care of the place, and unfortunatelly they may not... More

Mar 9, 2014 We just left there after 5 days and thought it was excellent. Price is right for great american B&B breakfast and very quiet. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Wanted to satisfy all needs and were not pushy. No Rules Signs anywhere. Great location- beautiful views. Outdoor kitchen for guest's use. Loans out snorkel stuff, beach towels, chairs.... More

Just got back from vacation last week. This was my second time at Rainbow Plantation B&B. If you are looking for a back-to-nature feel, this is the place for you. Anyone can stay at a hotel with the usual amenities, but I felt like I was staying in a tree house in old Hawaii, surrounded by acres of beautiful foliage.... More
