For our one week stay on Hawaii we chose the Kanaloa Suite in the Kane Plantation Guesthouse. The guesthouse is located on the west coast of big island on an avocado farm. When we arrived from the airport David was already waiting for us and gave us a first introduction to the gorgeous suite, the guesthouse and the plantation grounds. Our hosts David and Michael together with Cal and Jim paid attention to every detail, from the welcoming illumination of the driveway over the complimentary fruit, snacks and drinks to the fresh flowers in the suite. The guesthouse is the former home of Hawaiian artist and historian Herb Kane and David and Michael keep his memory in every room. They are very knowledgeable of the island and helped us with valuable tips and background information. The highlight of every day was the opulent breakfast with fresh fruit (mainly from the farm), croissants, toast, a selection of cheese, jam, marmalade and honey, homemade granola and joghurt. Each day we got a special treat like an omelette with goat cheese or Egg Benedict with avocado hollandaise. Somehow David and Cal managed to build avocados into each meal :-). To finish homemade muffins, scones or banana bread was on the menu. The Kona Coffee was exquisite! We especially liked the conversations during breakfast discussing and refining our plans for the day. We will also remember the spectacular sunsets we viewed from our lanai. In summary it was the best experience in a hotel or B&B we ever had and can only recommend Kane Plantation Guesthouse!

We stayed in the gorgeous Kane Suite/Music Room. The property is stunning and David, Michael, Jim, and Cal were delightful. Breakfast each morning was a treat. We spent more time at the property than we usually would at a hotel/B&B as it was just so wonderful. David also gave us lovely recommendations for "locals" beaches and activities. A true highlight of our trip.

My husband and I stayed four nights in the Kane suite and it was nothing short of amazing. David, Michael, Jim, and Cal were all so lovely and their attention to detail was impeccable. Breakfasts made by David and served by Cal were heavenly, the best we'd had on our two week vacation in Hawaii. Sometimes we would decide to just relax, play chess (there was a set in our suite), drink some wine, and have our dinner from a local grocery store in our suite or out on the patio. We could've easily spent our entire two week vacation at Kane Plantation Guesthouse, but luckily we left it for the end of our trip, because otherwise the two other B&Bs we stayed at during our trip wouldn't have stood up to the amazing service, beauty, and relaxation we got from staying at Kane Plantation Guesthouse. We hope to return some day. Thank you so much, David, Michael, Jim, and Cal!

Where to begin! My fiance and I celebrated our almost-honeymoon on the Big Island, and we started our trip with 2 nights at Kane Plantation. We were able to quickly unwind in the Kane Suite, which includes an oceanview lanai and greenhouse as well as paintings by Herb Kane on the walls. The decorating of the room itself was impressive. David and Michael are the most amazing hosts, who have thought of every detail. From the complimentary snacks, drinks, and wine to the Hawaii documentaries loaded on the TV to the bug spray and candles they light around the property every evening, it was truly an amazing and unique stay. I would be remiss if I did not mention the delicious and bountiful breakfasts that await you on the screened lanai. Dave's cooking skills are out of this world - the omelet with goat cheese was my favorite! We also loved trying the different fresh Hawaiian fruits and fruit jams each morning. We hope to return again soon. One little tidbit to be aware of is that the 1/2 mile drive up the hill to Kane Plantation is a bit bumpy and one lane but press on! Paradise awaits.

My friend and I stayed in this beautiful and peaceful guest house in mid April 2022. I was amazed by the natural beauty of the guest house (see pictures) and the friendliness of the owner, David. 1st he was a great cook👍 and he knew the island like his house. He gave us many wonderful suggestions such as where to eat or where to visit. I highly recommend this place for anyone who plans to visit the Big Island. You will not be disappointed.

I hardly ever write a review but I really wanted other people to know about how wonderful this place was. The room, amenities, location, artwork, food, were all so perfect. But the attention to detail provided by the owners of this property to make our stay perfect was above and beyond. How ever many days you are planning to book, book an extra day or two because when it is time to leave you will wish you could stay.

We arrived late at night and waked up in paradise with a breathtaking outlook and a guest room that was just perfect in every little detail. And on top of that we had the most tasteful breakfast ever each day. Beside the kindness of our host, we received very good and helpful information where to go and what to see. Thank you, David and Michael, you made our stay the most beautiful on Big Island.

Kane Plantation was the PERFECT place to start celebrating our retirement and 40th anniversary! From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome, relaxed, pampered, and extremely happy with our decision to stay at Kane Plantation. David, Michael, Jim and Cal are wonderful hosts. Their attention to every detail including: the gourmet breakfasts, plentiful snacks and beverages, beautiful flower arrangements in the rooms, homemade cookies, art work, the decor, the comfortable furniture, the beautiful grounds, (and the list goes on), makes it hard to leave. We also appreciated the helpful conversations at breakfast, giving us great ideas where to snorkel, sites to visit, directions, etc. Our Kanaloa Suite was quite large and had a wonderful big lanai with a view of the ocean. Everything was impeccably clean. If you could take all your favorite aspects of every B&B you've ever stayed at and put them all together to create one B&B, Kane Plantation would still exceed it. We can't wait to come back! Mahalo!

Kane Plantation is perched over the Pacific on a working avocado plantation. Michael and Dave converted the beautiful home of the famous Hawaiian artist into an intimate yet spacious and elegant B&B. We had a commanding view, elegant large, large room complete with living room and a porch overlooking the gardens and the water below. EVERY detail was covered and the breakfasts were fabulous--5 star! The best were the hosts themselves.
