We loved our stay at Tiki Wa guest house! Brian and Holly were amazing hosts. The accommodations are very clean and comfortable. We felt at home in their guest house. There is access to a shared outdoor kitchen and grill. This area was great to be able to use to cook out and not have to eat out every night. There is a covered outdoor area with a TV/entertainment area and a Tiki bar area that offered beautiful views. We happened to be there during the Olympics which were more exciting to watch with the international guests that were there! Every morning Holly makes a fantastic breakfast with fresh fruit from the property and local delicious Kona coffee (best coffee I've ever had!) She also tries to accommodate guest as best she can on timing and food restrictions. Brian and Holly were very helpful in making suggestions on places to go and see on the Island. They wholeheartedly want their guest to have an amazing experience while visiting the Big Island. We even went out one night with them and other guests for dinner and music!
They do have dogs and cats on the property. Being an animal lover this was a plus for me! The cats are outdoor cats and mainly keep to themselves. The dogs are both very sweet and do not have to be a big part of your stay if do not want them to be. If you truly dislike animals this may not be the place for you.
I have very little negative to say about Tiki Wa Guesthouse. There are only minor things to comment on. We arrived at night and the driveway is difficult to find. I know they are planning on improving this. Also the beach/snorkel gear are free to use, but with is on a first come first serve basis so you cannot count on them being available!
The guest house is newly renovated/update but is completely done on the inside. I know Brian and Holly have a lot of plans to continue to improve on an already great experience. I hope to return next year to see some of the changes!!!
Overall, I highly recommend Tiki Wa Guest House if you are looking for a comfortable, clean, affordable, friendly, bed and breakfast environment to experience all that the Big Island has to offer.
