“A Hawaiian Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Sisters Mary and Pat operate this wonderful B&B and both are warm and friendly ladies. Our visit was like staying with "family". We stayed in the "Aloha room" in the main house and had a lovely room with private bath and private entrance to the lanai. Breakfast is served on the lanai and was always fantastic. We'll miss the "fresh" island fruit everyday! We visited in February and were fortunate to have views of whales frolicking in the ocean while eating breakfast on the lanai. We also met many nice people staying there and enjoyed visiting with them. The ladies are very knowledgeable and gave us many "local" tips about the island. Ali Kai is a very relaxing place to stay. We would highly recommend Ali Kai and plan to return.

Pat and Mary have been most gracious hosts. Our stay, while seeing most of the Big Island, often included long hours and it was always a welcome "home" on our return. Located across the street from the ocean, the lenai offers a view of whales and sea turtles as well as the meeting place for guests to share adventures over breakfast.

My friend and I spent a week here and couldn't have been more satisfied with the the cottage we stayed in which had all the comforts of home, including a nice size TV screen where we could watch the Australian Open after a great day of hiking. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage was exceptionally clean The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful and were eaten on the Lanai overlooking the ocean where we even saw whales one morning. The owners, Pat and Mary, were delightful and very friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to see and places to eat out. A very peaceful and pleasant place to stay with the added bonus of being able to just cross the road and watch the sun rise over the ocean and listen and see the waves pounding over the rocks..

Our family of four spent 3 nights in the cottage at Ala Kai B & B. We loved the location, views and our hostesses, Pat and Mary. We cooked several nights and the cottage kitchen had everything we needed and more. The beds are comfy, the house is very clean,the decore is fun tropical and casual so we were really able relax. It is right across the street from the ocean and the views are amazing. We were served a delicious breakfast each morning on their lanai overlooking the pretty pool with the ocean beyond...You won't be disappointed and you won't want to leave!

Ala Kai is a rare sanctuary from the tourist rush. You reach it by a sinusoidal private road, which by itself is fun to drive,
Immaculate house with accomodations with all amenities of home; elegant , spotlesly clean, where the surf and chorus of the frogs and birds are the only sounds in the night. The swim in an attractive pool or the safe walks under the starry skies end nicely the day of explorations.
The irresistable breakfasts on the lanaii, watching the ocean with the pleasant unobtrusive
but attentive hostesess, expertly helping with planning of the next adventures are invaluable.
One could choose from local farmers markets and shopping centres with the level of the big cities to local cafes and small, but good eateries to fancy restaurants and exceptional quality of artisan galleries, rarely .seen in touristy hubs.
We travel a lot and are our stay in ALA Kai was one of our best experiences
