Where to start?? Wendy and Dave are the most wonderful hosts, and literally thought of everything to make our trip better. From the delicious 3 course breakfasts (different every day), to scheduling activities for us, they took all the thought out of our trip...all we had to do was show up and have a great time. They even did our...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

What a wonderful place to spend a week on the Kona side of Hawai'i. Dave and Wendi are the penultimate hosts; warm, gracious, accomodating, witty, and so very knowledgeable about their island paradise. This is really a little slice of heaven. The accomodations are flat out gorgeous, the food is extraordinary, and the aloha spirit pervades everything here. We felt...

I, too, am late in letting everyone know about this wonderful B&B. This was our first stop in a month-long travel adventure and, although we were only able to stay for three nights, it was a memorable and completely wonderful experience. The owners and hosts, Wendi and Dave, are very gracious, welcoming and attentive. The accommodations were awesome, our room...

Honu Kai is in a very convenient location to the downtown area of Kona and the airport. It is just a short distance up the mountain where it is cooler and serene. It is also centrally located between Captain Cook to the south, and the Kohala beaches to the north. It is also convenient to the Saddle Road over to...
