First of all, our expectations have been sky-high, as we learned about this place from a German travel report. It was highly recommended from a Hawaii Connoisseur. However Wendy (in absence) and Dave exceeded still the expectations… It started with the administrative part of our stay. Two weeks before arrival we received a mail with a lot of things to...

Mahalo Howard for taking the time to write a review about our B&B's Sister Property, our 2/2 executive condo on the golf course of the famed Mauna Lani South Course. Our condo feels like home to our guests because it was our home, before we bought and moved into our now top rated Honu Kai B&B. Our condo was never...

The tropical paradise that greeted us as we drove through the property gate was wonderful! Our party stayed in the two treehouse rooms and they were perfect.

A tropical paradise with Aloha! Honu Kai, set on a lush tropical 1.3 acre estate, offers a serene, Zen like feel amidst an old growth garden environment ... so relax, rejuvenate your senses and feel at one with nature — whether it’s lounging on the expansive lanai deck, listening to the water flowing into the koi pond, enjoying the garden jacuzzi under the Kona stars, or letting the occasional rain falling on the roof lull you to sleep. Honu Kai is extremely conscious of our environment and is 100% solar powered. We have been recognized as a Platinum Level Green Leader by TripAdvisor, their highest level of recognition. We use biodegradable toiletries, water efficient fixtures, Energy Star appliances, recycle waste, encourage towel and linen reuse, and serve locally sourced or on-site grown organic produce. ... more   less
