Michael and David are fantastic hosts. We stayed here for our honeymoon back in September 2015 (we're only just settling down to writing all our reviews but better late than never!) and the Kane Plantation is a little piece of heaven. We stayed in the Kane Suite which is the most beautiful room. The pride that Michael and David take... More

Our visit to the Kane Plantation was the perfect start to our first visit to the Big Island. David and Michael were gracious hosts, offering a wonderful breakfast to start our day, and the Kane Suite could not be more relaxing at the end of a long day of touring. Perfectly placed flowers, fresh baked cookies, and a lovely bottle... More

My husband and I took staycation on the Island of Hawaii to celebrate his 80th Birthday. Every moment of our stay was a perfect gift, intimate setting, quiet, relaxing and private!

I wanted a special place for our anniversary and the Kane Plantation Guesthouse was perfect. My only regret is that we did not spend enough time on the beautiful lanai off the Kanaloa room savoring the peace of the sky to sea view. The room had everything - free drinks and snacks, night-time chocolates, an outdoor shower, easy to use... More

We loved Kane plantation guesthouse from the moment we arrived till the moment we sadly had to leave. David and Michael have created the most elegant guesthouse we ever visited, still maintaining the charme, history and deep memories of the place. Attention to details is everywhere, in the decor, the amenities, the quality of service. Complimentary drinks, fruit and snacks... More

Breakfast on the lovely porch was deliciously fresh and healthy every day with an emphasis on local fruits, Kona coffee any way you like it and farm fresh foods. David and Michael are terrific hosts – they know the Big Island and will advise their guests on travel routes, must-see places and parks, hidden gems and history of the island.... More

I wanted to write a glowing recommendation about Kane Plantation, but as I quickly reviewed what others had said I'm not sure I can add anything other than echo their opinions. I've never had better or more personalized service, and we have stayed in some expensive/swanky accommodations! Michael, David and all their wonderful staff seem to recognize and meet (exceed)...

Kane Plantation is by far the best B&B where I’ve ever stayed. It is run as professionally as the highest end hotel, but with the careful and loving thought to preserve the character and most authentic elements of the location. The Big Island has a rich cultural history, and Herb Kane, the previous owner of the estate, was a major... More

The breakfasts was FANTASTIC! Upon arriving, we were greeted very warmly by David.
