My wife and I just got back from a wonderful stay at ka'awa loa. My wife was searching around for a nice place to stay on Kona and was initially worried about staying here... for no other reason than she always wants things to be perfect and we had nothing except the internet to guide us. Well, long story short...

What can I say... it was home! The hosts, the lush vegetation on the property, the welcome feeling, the mansion, the room, the bathroom, the fresh flowers in the room, the bed, the views, the breakfast fruits ánd coffee grown on their own plantation... just the best. Ever. Period. I could extensively elaborate on the details of all the above...

I arrived and almost wept at the beautiful view, when you book online there is always that little bit of doubt about what to expect. Ka'awa Loa was what I had expected from the website photos and more. The quality of the fittings and furnishings, tasteful decor and welcoming design of the house and the hosts makes you feel at...

Walking in was like being transported into a private charming hawaiian plantation. Attention to detail in every respect: fresh fruit breakfast, beautiful soft sheets and bed, informative and friendly host and incredible views framed by mango trees - all combined to make this a beautiful stay.

I don't even know where to begin! This B&B was so amazing. When we first arrived we were told that Michael had made brownies, they were fresh out of the oven and ready for us. They treated us so well we didn't want to leave. The breakfasts were amazing. Fresh fruit; mango, papaya, pineapple, lilikoi, finger bananas, and last but...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our tour around Hawaii. If we came here first I don't think we would have left. Greg and Michael were brilliant hosts. We were offered fruit juice and macadamia nuts on arrival and told to make ourselves at home. Our stay felt just like home. The breakfasts were amazing and...

We loved waking up to the beautiful ocean view, outdoor lava rock showers, and delicious breakfasts. The location is within a short drive to the best snorkeling and kayaking on the island. We were amazed by the warmth and hospitality of the hosts, Greg and Michael. The attention to the smallest details was amazing. Make sure you try the close-by...

We were blown away by this beautiful property, and also the warmth and graciousness of the hosts, Michael and Greg. The plantation features sweeping views of the ocean and Kealakekua Bay -- all of which you can enjoy from a large covered wrap-around deck. On our arrival, we were greeted with a plate of fresh fruit and juice -- not...

I've never felt more comfortable staying at a B&B. Michael and Greg were more than friendly and accommodating. There was a wide assortment of delicious food for breakfast including fruit grown on the premises and a very tasty entree along with locally grown Kona coffee and assorted breads, cereals, etc. The weather is perfect in that area, and there is...

What a value! My husband and I both felt like we were staying with family, rather than a vacation rental. Michael and Greg are so welcoming and truly go the extra mile to make you feel welcome in their home. We would not hesitate to stay here again. If you're planning a trip to Kailua-Kona, stay here, rather than a...
