Such great hospitality, you feel very special, gourmet breakfast, home grown coffee, kind, entertaining and knowledgeable hosts. Sit on the lanai surrounded by tropical forest, birds singing and a view that goes on forever.

Greeted by a pure mango and Lilikoi smoothie on arrival we fell immediately to the warm hearted spell cast by our gracious host Shai as he fixed his gaze upon us and ushered around his home like family coming to visit for the holidays. Casting out over the jungle of coffee bushes and Lilikoi vines is a heavenly deck reaching out to views of the turquoise Pacific Ocean beyond glistening as you enjoy an afternoon read or the delicious pleasure of Trina's and Shai's legendary breakfast where you chat to fellow guests and connect to the relaxed atmosphere that can only can only come from feeling so completely welcome. Shai grows and roasts his own coffee blend on site in the rich fertile soil of a renowned coffee region and takes delight in showing you around his personality as he proudly takes you on a guided tour through his personal menagerie of organic fruit trees and veggie gardens. We only stayed a night but the memory feels like a lifetime connection. We won't forget the Lilikoi it's now in our hearts it's now in our life, we'll be back, it's already starting to beckon us with a distant stir of another time.

We really enjoyed all the things in Big Island of Hawaii, especially staying at Lilikoi Inn, Shai and Trina are wonderful hosts. We were very much impressed with their hospitality , amazing breakfasts, an outdoor Jacuzzi which Shai made, and they recommended beautiful beaches, shops etc.
When we found a lilikoi jelly in a shop we were so pleased that we bought it for souvenir. We are looking forward to your Pizza Oven next time!!!

many greetings from Tokyo,
Eiri, Tomoko , Takashi and Yuri

This is a long overdue review to RAVE about the Lilikoi. Trina and Shai are wonderful hosts, and clearly take joy in what they do. The grounds of the inn are breathtaking, and Shai will show you how to pick ripe lilikoi (passion fruit) right off of the ground where they fall and eat them. Heaven.

They give great directions to wherever you need to go; we never got lost. When we asked about good beaches, Shai recommended Kua Bay, which was exactly what we were looking for.

Shai's breakfasts are delicious and filling without being too heavy, and the coffee is amazing.

What's nice about the inn is that it's in a great location for getting to sights and activities, but it's removed from the hustle and bustle of Kona town. So, after a long day of enjoying the island, you can come back and feel at peace and relaxed (the hot tub doesn't hurt).

We recommend this place HIGHLY. We'll never stay anywhere else when we visit the Big Island (which will be soon, hopefully!).

This place is fantastic. We stayed 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and I wished we stayed longer. The owners are incredibly kind & hospitable with lots of great knowledge on where to go & what to do on the island. A lot of fruit at breakfast is picked from the property as well as the coffee which tastes great!

A house built on a volcano in the middle of a jungle. Whats not to like. Watching the jungle try to take over the garden was fascinating. The breakfast was amazing as it had generally fallen off of the trees that morning, although the coffee (grown in the garden) was the real high point. I have never come across better B&B hosts with such a wealth of knowledge about the area.

In fact the only difficult thing is the drive up to the house, it can be quite challenging.

The rooms were great, the balcony was really nice, looking out over the ocean.

We visited in October 2012. The owners are amazing. They're friendly and fun and gave us the best advice on what to see and where to eat while we were visiting. The breakfasts are second-to-none, delicious and huge portions! Our room was spacious and comfortable, and the view from the property is stunning. Definitely recommended.
