1st Class Vacation Rental Kona Hawaii
Ranked #9 of 13 Kailua-Kona B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 29, 2006

We stayed in the studio suite of this B&B and loved it. It was tastefully decorated and was kept immaculately clean. It felt like a home away from home. The hostess is a delightful person that is easy to visit with and has a huge wealth of information about the big island.
We stayed four nights and enjoyed every minute. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

This B&B offers consistent high levels of service and outstanding gourmet breakfast. The Inn is located in a quiet residential area and offers a stand-alone cottage and very secluded studio, each with stand alone accomodations (including bath!). The main Lanai of the house is the perfect gathering spot to sit, watch the sunset, and "talk story".

Yes, do plan on driving in to town. It's a whole five minute drive and worth it just to people watch. The town isn't that big with parking spots off the main drag where you can easily find a space, park the car, and enjoy; I recommend the lot behind LuLu's.

Delores is a gracious hostess. Just as she's fanatical about offering a clean environment, we reciprocate by keeping the place clean. Having lived in Hawaii, we're familiar with island life. For those who have not traveled to a tropical envionrment, take a lesson from Delores on how to prevent unwanted guests in your room.

Its part of our holiday schedule to visit 1st Class B&B and Delores has become part of our family. You won't be disappointed with her charm and wit, the accomodations, and by far, the varied activities of visitng the Big Island. Mahalo.

This is not a typical Bed and Breakfast. The Studio and Guest House offer spacious accomodations with great views of the coast. Located on a hill overlooking Kailua-Kona, sunsets are spectacular from the second story Lanai. The property is immaculate, and the tropical flowers and plants remind you how special it is to be in Hawaii. Cooked-to-order gourmet breakfasts are a great way to start the day before heading out to tour the island. What's especially nice is Delores' attention to detail, and for repeat guests, she even remembers your preference of juice, coffee or tea. Fresh tropical fruit native to the Islands is served with every breakfast. A bonus is her flexibility and consideration of any dietary needs you may have.

Delores is a wonderful hostess, and her knowledge of the Island and its charm is welcomed. It's a short drive in to town (about five minutes), and it's peaceful and quiet at night as you relax after touring the Island.

Staying at the property is a treat, and our decision to return again has confirmed that Delores knows her customers, knows the Island, and her class and poise define First Class Bed and Breakfast.

We could stay at any one of the expansive resorts on the Island, yet migrate to First Class knowing the experience is one of the high points while spending time on the Big Island. It's becoming a tradition for us to spend time at First Class Bed and Breakfast.
