The Honu Kai B & B was the last stop on a 30th anniversary celebration trip to the Big Island of Hawaii in early January 2017. We have stayed in B & Bs for more than 30 years while traveling, and would rate the Hunu Kai as one of the top properties we have stayed in. Not only was the...

Dave and Wendi are super hosts, - friendly, helpful, resourceful and fun! We enjoyed our stay in their BnB very much. Our room and BR were comfortable and nicely furnished, breakfasts delicious and filling and the common area/grounds are really beautiful, The BnB is conveniently located but you would need a car to get around to numerous nearby attractions and...

It was great having your family stay with us at Honu Kai. Thanks for mentioning to the TripAdvisor readers that a car is needed to get around and experience the island. It is called, "The Big Island" for a reason. We at Honu Kai would be happy to assist future guests in finding a better priced rent car for your...

Our stay was nothing short of spectacular! This was our second and final stop on our wedding/honeymoon trip to Hawaii and we couldn't have been happier with the choice to stay here. From the planning stages, Wendi and Dave were informative, easy to communicate with and thorough. We arrived late one night for a 9 day stay and Dave gave...

We stayed at Honu Kai in late November, I can honestly say that the experience is up there with the best hotels, never mind B&B’s Dave and Wendi clearly know their business and have created an idyllic spot of Paradise just high enough above Kona to have a pleasant temperature year-round. We stayed for three nights in the Nigori suite,...

We loved this bed and breakfast. It was very relaxing and Dave and Wendi are excellent hosts. The room itself was clean and comfortable, but it was the extra effort that Wendi and Dave put in that made all the difference. They were very accommodating (we are vegan), and they would spend time with us each morning to help us...

Wendi and Dave are highly attentive hosts, eager to help plan excursions and extremely knowledgeable of the local area. If there's something you need, they have already thought of it, and will pack a bag for you with everything you need for the days adventures (from snorkeling gear to snacks). The setting is wonderful, you fall asleep to the sound...

A tropical paradise with Aloha! Honu Kai, set on a lush tropical 1.3 acre estate, offers a serene, Zen like feel amidst an old growth garden environment ... so relax, rejuvenate your senses and feel at one with nature — whether it’s lounging on the expansive lanai deck, listening to the water flowing into the koi pond, enjoying the garden jacuzzi under the Kona stars, or letting the occasional rain falling on the roof lull you to sleep. Honu Kai is extremely conscious of our environment and is 100% solar powered. We have been recognized as a Platinum Level Green Leader by TripAdvisor, their highest level of recognition. We use biodegradable toiletries, water efficient fixtures, Energy Star appliances, recycle waste, encourage towel and linen reuse, and serve locally sourced or on-site grown organic produce. ... more   less
