The food is great. The rooms and grounds are clean, neat and pretty. It rates a "B" because: 1) You must pay in cash (my check was cashed before I left) 2) there is no AC or dehumidifiers - very damp 3) you are not allowed to consume food or drinks in the house (other than breakfast) - plan to eat on the porch regardless of weather, 4) access to the main house requires a climb of 20 steps, 5) they have 7 or so cheerfully - yet strictly - enforced rules. Some make sense (keep doors closed to keep out bugs). Others create stress (there are specific cups for tea and coffee - you can't put coffee in a tea cup). We found ourselves wondering what we would do next that would be a mistake. It's good for a couple, with no dietary restrictions, travelling without children, who are physically fit and willing to follow rules. But "Ohana" it's not.
