The lodge is really looking traditional with everything clean and service in good flow and a beautiful ocean view. But the problem is they say that there is a good sunset there but the sunset is hidden by a group of trees which makes it impossible to see the sunset. the breakfast's quality and quantity was not so good.better to...

I stayed in the Crow's Nest in Oct of 2016. It was hands down one of the best experiences I have ever had while traveling. Kurt & Kana truly made it a home away from home for me. I was a female, traveling alone & I felt safe there on the island the whole time. The fruit (OMG the FRUIT)...

My husband and I stayed in the Crow's Nest and we couldn't have been happier - the accommodations, breakfasts, views, information, fruits and coffee were beyond expectations. We would definitely return. We enjoyed meeting Kurt, Kana, his lovely daughter, Kana's mom and sister while there and made new friends of other guests from around the world. I was able to...

We stayed for four nights at The Edge and could have stayed much longer. The Pacific room was excellent , wonderful view and the breakfasts were delicious. Our hosts were very helpful with places to eat and also things to do when our plans were cancelled due to bad weather!

Luck of the draw on the weather. (My coffee plants were probably quite happy. Best if it rains in the nights and sunshines in the day). I'd day 95% of the time it's "Sunny Kona". Nice to get to know you. We like it when guests stay for several days--makes it feel like a real B&B with real people rather...

We recently stayed in the best ocean view room and was the perfect description for our space. Upon booking Kurt sent loads of travel info, tips, and ideas on how to spend on time.
