Had a wonderful time. The homes were interesting, the food was delicious, but Ann and Pat made the day! Two terrific ladies. Very upbeat, informative and entertaining. Would definetly recommend.

Chef Ann and her cohort Patty do a marvelous job of giving a unique view and taste of the Island. Incorporating many native foods, Chef Ann provides many dishes for a progressive Brunch experience set in their choice of three wonderfully different homes on the Island. The tour lasts about 4 hours, with pickup at various hotels and the dock for cruise passengers. Our three homes featured a home with 3 master Suites and a non stop view, a forested home with decor that looked like a box of 48 Crayolas had been used for color! Amazingly, it all worked, and the knockout view from the cook-top would keep me in the kitchen 24/7! The last home was all about the gardens. Orchids, pineapples, palms, gorgeous plants, ponds, fountains. If you are a repeat customer, they do their best to vary the homes you see. I'm not sure about varying the menu, but I wouldn't mind eating everything over and over again! A delightful way to spend a morning in Kona if you're not into snorkeling or coffee plantations. Be sure you get Ann talking about her stint as staff with the Kennedy's!

Wonderful experience to go to three different homes and have freshly prepared food: brunch type food, snacks, entrees and desserts. Small group experience (no more than 12 or so). There is a selection of 15 homes for the tour to choose from, so each tour is a bit different. Great mango gazpacho and passion fruit mousse. Our tour had places with uneven ground and stairs, so if you have issues with that I would check with Chef Ann beforehand. Book beforehand if you are interested.

The tour was amazing, the three house were a combination of new and old Hawaii. The first house it was about the views, he 2nd house was more old Hawaii thought to be the oldest house in Hilo, and he last house was another very old Hawaiian style house that was restored and is now a B&B. Menu and service were all great.
