We stayed here on the second half of our week long trip to the Big Island. Lee & Svetlana were great innkeepers! They were very friendly throughout our stay and so helpful in helping us plan our daily excursions to nearby attractions. They know the area very well and recommended a number of intersting trips to several beaches and nearby towns. Appreciated to see things on Kona-side that were not in Kona - which is very touristy and busy. Svetlana is an excellent chef! She alternated between sweet & savory breakfast each morning, using fresh produce from their own land, which you can also pick yourself to take with as a snack for the day. She even gave us extra banana bread to sustain us on our flights back to the mainland.
The driveway to the Aloha Guest House is tucked away off the main road and then there is a very steep and bumpy ride up a mountain side to get to the actual house. I think it was actually worse in a 4x4 Jeep, so you might want to try a smaller SUV. The crazy journey pays off big time at the top! The Aloha Guesthouse is nestled amongst several coffee bean farms and fruit orchards, which gives it a nice jungle feeling, but it is high enough on the mountain that you get incredible views of the ocean below. Our room had giant windows facing the ocean, so we got to witness some great sunsets! Also really liked the community deck space where you could sit out to enjoy the weather but also mingle with other guests.
Overall a really love B&B with wonderful innkeepers! Hope to return one day!!!
