The property is situated on a working coffee plantation studded with mac nut trees, papayas, bananas and other fruits and veggies. Needless to say, the coffee each day was wonderful. We stayed in a room called the "Crow's Nest", with its private lanai overlooking the plantation and Kealakekua Bay 1,000 feet below. The room was spacious and clean and well ventilated, with balmy tropical breezes from the trade winds wafting over our bodies each night as we slept. Keith and Karen Klukat are running the B&B (and the farm) for proprietor Kurt while he pursues his dream in that other tropical paradise, Hainan, off the coast of China. They are wonderfully warm and gracious people and they are doing a terriffic job as hosts. Karen's breakfasts each day were unbelievably delicious and featured produce from the farm. We had to share our breakfast with gold dust day geckos from time to time but they only wanted the sweet things and didn't take much. There are a couple of cats, one of which, OJ, appears to be sedated. I've never seen such a comically lethargic feline. Nothing shakes him up. Free WiFi is available if you need access to the internet and there are some wonderful restaurants nearby. We can recommend Big Jakes Hawaiian BBQ, Keei Café, Mi's Italian Bistro and for a truly unique experience at a reasonable price ($28 dinner for two with a cocktail!) don't miss the Manago Hotel!
