Lilikoi Inn
Ranked #1 of 6 Holualoa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We spent a week with Shai & Trina at the Lilikoi Inn and had a fabulous time. The inn is nestled in a mass of coffee, avocado, papaya, and banana trees along with beautiful birds of paradise and torch ginger flowers from which the rooms take their names. The welcome was warm and heartfelt. Our hosts placed a beautiful arrangement of flowers from the garden in the room as a surprise when we returned from our first day out. Shai is an accomplished chef, and the breakfasts were superb and so generous that we often didn't need lunch! The breakfasts are served communal style and part of the fun is getting to know your fellow guests. Our hosts also gave great insider tips on where to go & what to see. The room (Tropical Suite) was spacious with a comfy mattress and large shower and separate tub. We'd definitely stay here again.

Shai and Trina are wonderful hosts and made our 4 days in Kona wonderful. Shai greeted us on the first afternoon with a wonderful smoothie and introduced us to the other guests. The views of the Kona coast and the lush gardens surrounding the lanai were breathtaking. I spent very special and relaxing times each morning taking in the tranquil beauty of this place. Each morning we were served the most wonderful breakfast on the upper balcony consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables from their gardens and eggs from their hens. The Kona coffee that was grown on the property was some of the best coffee I have had in the world. Excellent tips on what to see and do and how to get there. Customer service at its finest! Their passion for service is evident; it is not what they do, it is who they are. All of our expectations were met and exceeded. We felt like a part of the family and can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are right next to the kitchen, the lanai, and the parking area but not as private as...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at Lilikoi Inn with our hosts, Shai and Trina, who made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Beautiful private rooms, quiet and immaculately clean with gorgeous views of the lush hillside tropical gardens and coffee plantation, the Kona coast. And the food - absolutely wonderful! We had fresh papaya and mango every morning and then a yummy hot breakfast fritata with sausage and crispy potato. Many of the ingredients come right from the garden - avocado, macadamia, lilikoi, papaya, bananas, fresh vegetables, even the eggs from their "free range" hens. Lovely private hot tub, beautiful gracious lanai with an magnificent ocean view. Very helpful and enthusiastic advice on places to visit, excellent directions. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: I've stayed in two of the gracious, comfortable downstairs rooms - very private and quiet. Ther...

Good points - very spacious, private and comfortable (Plumeria) room. Very quiet location with lovely views from the terrace and even better from the upper balcony. Marvellous breakfasts and excellent service. Shai provides great advice on places to go and how to get there. Loads of beach equipment there to be borrowed. Other points - access to this B&B is tricky. Our initial impression was 'oh my God'. However, it's not so bad after the first time - keep to the right hand side of the entrance off the main road (LHS coming out of the drive), engage first gear before entering drive and just go nice and slow to negotiate the very narrow (but well paved) drive. Parking is a bit awkward and the parking area is
just dirt, messy if it's rained (it often did). There isn't much soundproofing.

Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and think we did better here than if we had stayed in Kona.

What an incredible experience at Lilikoi Inn :) From the warm welcome at our arrival to the great breakfast and the "high above" view of majestic Big Island's shore, our stay was fantastic! Our hosts, Shai and Trina, really gave us the sense of the famous Aloha hospitality that characterize Hawaiian Islands. They were particuleraly knowledgeable of the highlights of Big Island; from more popular areas to hidden gems known by very few, they can tell you exactly how to get there... Lilikoi Inn is more than Bed and Breakfast; it's a little paradise in paradise!

Before our trip, we were looking at the reviews and thought it was almost to good to be true... We are now believers!
