We stayed at 1st Class B&B first in 1999 while waiting for friends to join us at a hotel. It was a Hawaiian experience in a real environment with fragrant breezes, peaceful surroundings, and lovely hospitality. We have returned in 2001,2003,2004,2007, and hope to return soon. Our pattern has been to stay with Dolores to get settled on the Island then move over to a rental house. She has provided us with excellent information of all sorts including some wonderful restaurants. One of my personal most relaxing memories is sitting on the small lanai of the cottage, watching the birds and the ocean down the hill, drinking coffee before going up to breakfast on the main lanai. (My husband loves the french restaurant nearby.)

My husband and I have previously travelled to warm destinations, but this was our first trip to Hawaii and after spending 12 absolutely wonderful nights staying at the 1st Class B & B, we will definitely be returning. Upon our arrival at the 1st Class B & B we were warmly greeted by the owner of the establishment, Delores, and shown to the private cottage where a few simple directions were provided to us to make our stay more enjoyable.

We spent 10 nights in the cottage which was very private and very comfortable with all the comforts of home. The bed was extremely comfortable, the furnishings and accoutrements were pleasing and worth the expense. The last two nights in the studio were equally as pleasant and comfortable.

Fresh towels were supplied daily and the breakfasts prepared by Delores were exceptional examples of first class culinary cuisine. Mornings during breakfast we would sit and chat with Delores; she filled us in on some of the history of Hawaii and local customs of the island. Dolores and her wealth of knowledge regarding the local sights allowed us to miss nothing on our daily excursions. Our only regret is that our time there passed too quickly. At the 1st Class B & B we struck a friendship with Delores we will always treasure and never forget. We would highly recommend the 1st Class B & B for your stay on the big island of Hawaii.

Cheers Delores!

The attention to detail is extraordinary. The breakfasts are something to remember. The location and views are excellent. The whole experience is one you will want to come back to...

Room Tip: Either choice is excellent

We stayed in both accomodations (the cottage and the studio) during our 20 day stay at Big Island. We were here because of the Ironman race.
Both accomodations are spaciuos, very comfortable and are very nicely decorated. They have all facilities to make you feel at home immediately.
Dolores, the lady of the house, was a very friendly and caring host. She is also very straight in her communication which we could appreciate very well.
Breakfast was a real delight and everyday we were surprised with something else.
The surroundings of the premises are very green and quiet. For us it was a perfect location because we wanted to stay away from the crowds.
Next time we come to Big Island (and I hope that will be soon) we'll certainly come back to this place!

At First Class BB you will be surprised by a first class service at its best and a warm and friendly welcome from Dolores, hostess and owner of this lovely place.

The cottage is spacious and beautifully decorated. You feel at home immediately. Some munchies in the fridge, beautifully crafted name cards in the bath. Everything is clean and neat. Towels are changed every day, bed linens every 4th.
From its lanai you have a wonderful view on Kona and the coast. Don't miss the sunsets.

To look forward to: breakfasts are delicous and copious served on the large lanai. Dolores has an eye not only for table decorations but definitely is a magician in cuisine. Be it porridge, waffles, pancakes or tasty egg dishes and fruits...you will spend more time at the breakfast table than ever and get a new surprise every morning.

This is the time to ask Dolores about the island. She just knows everything and gives you well appreciated hints to experience the Big Island without getting exhausted.
Ideally placed, First Class B&B is only a 5 minute drive from Kona and ideal as a starting point for longer excursions.
For a day at the beach, Dolores provides you with all you need: chairs, boards, towels, cool boxes etc.

Last but not least, enjoy a nice and relaxing evening with some 'pupus' and a drink in Dolores' company on her lanai and 'talk story'.
