Last Year we watched from New Jersey with fear and awe as our favorite escape in the world was placed in the direct path of fissure 8 in the Leilani Estates eruption. The very thing that initially drew us to this area and ultimately The Kimos Ohanas Bed and Breakfast was now threatening to destroy it.... flowing lava. Five years ago we wanted to experience the Kileau volcano and found what was to become our home away from home. The Kimos Ohanas was a new bed and breakfast in the Pahoa area and seemed a great choice . What we found was a beautiful oasis run by the most creative, kind and loving couple imaginable. The Jim's welcomed us into their home and made us feel like family from our very first visit. From the singing couqi frogs serenading you in the outdoor shower after a long day exploring, to waking up with the omg amazing homemade lilikoi monkey bread, this bed and breakfast is the ultimate in Hawaiian relaxaction. As we drove away last year after several repeat visits, I felt like I was leaving my family. Had I known what they would be facing in the months to come, it would have been impossible to leave them. We watched from thousands of miles away as they faced losing their business but more importantly their home and could do nothing to help them but pray. Last week an absolute dream came true when we drove into the Kimos Ohanas driveway to find the Jims waiting to welcome us with huge smiles and hugs. Not only has The Kimos Ohanas survived , but so has the warmth love and spirit of the two most wonderful friends we have made in all our journeys. Leilni Estates has changed, but to see those changes through the eyes of those that lived through it is one of the most humbling yet exciting experiences of my lifetime. If you have the oppotrtunity to visit Pahoa, make a night or two at The Kimos Ohanas a part of the adventure, you won't regret it!!!!

I was able to spend a few lovely nights at the Kimos' Ohanas B&B in the beginning of February 2019. I was blown away by this little, jungle B&B and the amazing owners, Jim and Jim. I feel like I haven't gushed about a hotel/B&B before, but I'm definitely doing it now. The property is gorgeous and meticulously taken care of. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, and the amenities are wonderful. One of the suites has an outdoor shower and it is lovely. The beds are so comfortable that my cousin didn't want to get out of his. The breakfasts are varied and scrumptious. Every day has a different menu and includes lost of homemade goodies like sumatran cherry jam and passionfruit butter. YUM! Just wait for the monkey bread breakfast! Now onto the second part of my review's title. Jim and Jim know nearly everything about everything when it comes to the big island. One Jim has incredible geological knowledge and, seeing as their B&B is only 1.5 miles from Fissure 8, it's fascinating to hear him expound on the intricacies of the recent eruptions. The other Jim has intimate knowledge of all of the plants and animals of the area and curates all of their gardens on the property. He is so passionate about the area and has so many stories to tell. You'd be so surprised to learn about how many of the plants and animals you see in Hawaii that are not endemic. Super interesting! I highly recommend staying at this B&B if you get the chance. Everything lends itself to getting a great experience. It's in a very quiet neighborhood. The scenery is amazing. You're short drives away from Hilo, Volcano National Park, numerous beaches, and some of the freshest lava floes on Earth. A magical experience with phenomenal hosts.

 We were staying in a resort in Kona and decided to double book a room over on the Hilo side rather than drive back and forth. After checking trip advisor, we choose Kimos' Ohanas based on the reviews. We absolutely loved our stay with Jim and Jim, who are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were exquisite, as was every detail of the property and experience as a whole. We were lulled to sleep every night by the beautiful songs of the frogs and other wild life. The peaceful sounds of nature allow total relaxation. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Hilo and situated within a few minutes of the natural hot ponds. And farther down the road you can hike or ride a bike to the recent lava flow out to the ocean. Pahoa is about 10 minutes away and offers a variety of local restaurants. We got lots of good tips from Jim on what to do and see, so we didn't have to immerse ourselves in a guide book. We had an especially fun time at Uncle Roberts on Wednesday night. If you prefer a characterless and clinical motel or hotel then this may not be the place for you. On the other hand, if you fancy spending some time in a relaxing location with a real character and great breakfasts then this is the one!  My wife and i would highly recommend the Kimos' Ohanas when you are staying on that side of the island. We will definitely be staying there again when we return to the big island

This is my third trip tp Hawaii and the stay at The Kimos Ohana was the best ever. Both hosts are super nice and check in was super easy. The room is cozy, breakfast is awesome and the surroundings make your stay to be one in paradise. At the price point, the hosts had a lot to offer....from rental ponchos, umbrella, sunscreen, beach towels for free. There is a microwave to bring in your take away meals and eat on Lanai. Parking is ample. I am going to stay here next time I visit Big Island. Thank you Jim and Jim!
