Wow! We were welcomed from the minute we arrived until we left. Wendi and David were the perfect host/hostess. They didn't miss an amenity. Their home is perfect. We stayed in the master but would be happy to stay in any of their rooms! Our only regret was we didn't stay long enough!!!

We were after a room at the B&B at first, but were travelling in a group of three, so settled for the condo instead. Especially if you are after a rather quiet surrounding and are into playing golf – this is your spot! It is located in a gated community a short drive up the Kona coast from the airport,... More

Although we missed the three of you staying here at the B&B, we are delighted to hear that our Mauna Lani Condo "Sister Property" worked out so well for you. We did not purchase that property as a rental or investment property, but rather as our home at which we... More

Dave and Wendy truly make you feel at home. Upon arrival Dave met us at the car to welcome us and offered us a glass of wine and oriented us to the B&B. LOVE the large lanai with lounges, firepit, outside kitchen, and large dining table and chairs (where we had our breakfasts). We stayed in the Nigori Room, which... More

We stayed there on our honeymoon and had a wonderful time! Dave and Wendy are truly world class! The property is quiet and secluded, we enjoyed waking up with morning bird song.

Amazing owners David & Wendi that make you feel so at home and welcomed. Amazing place to stay for the Kona Ironman but reserve way ahead of time because this place fils up quickly. It truly is the #1 place to stay in Kailua-Kona!!!

I can't begin to describe this fabulous guest house. Lovely, luxurious, comfortable accomodation. Excellent restaurant quality breakfasts, helpful & friendly hosts. Little touches like provision of all beach gear, snacks, maps, info made the whole stay worth while. Peaceful location. Beautiful grounds and garden. Felt very much at home, safe & welcomed. Thank you, Wendi & Dave. Highly recommend
