I had a wonderful stay at the Lilikoi Inn. Shai and Trina are friendly, kind, and generous hosts. The Inn is nestled in the hillside surrounded by jungle but with stunning views of the beaches and ocean. I love that their property is covered with all kinds of tropical plants from vines to guava trees, avocados and bananas, coffee and of course lilikoi. I had never tasted freshly picked guava or passion fruit and the flavors were really incredible.
The land also serves as a coffee farm and Shai also raises chickens and serves much of the fruit grown on the property to guests. The whole experience was so different from a highrise hotel or resort. It was refreshing. I felt like I was getting a real Hawaii experience instead of seeing only touristy attractions.
Shai and Trina are always working to improve the Inn. While I was there Shai and his son were building a pizza oven (see picture). I cannot wait to see what pizzas or other creations Shai will make using the oven. During my visit Shai and Trina were so kind and made me feel like part of their family. I'm really looking forward to visiting again.
