Horizon is set on large acres of land and really gives you a feel of the real Hawaii away from the big tourism and resorts. The rooms are clean and very comfortable with a beautiful view of the coastline. Clem and Mike and their animals especially Bruno ( the friendliest dog I've ever met) couldn't have been more welcoming. All facilities are great, infinity pool, hot tub, BBQ, laundry, beach gear is available for use. The breakfast is the best we've ever had in a B&B or hotel including fresh fruit from the property. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had room 4 which was on the end and had a bit more privacy than the others

Excellence all around. The hillside location with the infinity pool gives the illusion that you are on top of the world. Superb sunsets and stars, quality beds and linens, delicious breakfasts, hot tub and pool with a perfect view, wonderful hosts and pets. There is an unusual quiet harmony here. We divided our trip into 3 segments...NW at the Fairmont Orchid (superb, but windy), the volcano, and here south of Kona. Clem and Mike give great tips to match your interests. We were so impressed with how they opened their beautiful home. We did take advantage of their BBQ outdoor kitchen and access to dryer, extra towels, and a cooler in the laundry area. I even had a chance to feed the stray calf they had adopted! We spent 3 very enjoyable nights here. Couldn't have asked for more.

Room Tip: Each room has a private patio and is beautifully decorated. We were in #1 with an unobstructed view of the ocean, but probably all have a view and are staggered and screened for privacy. There really is no fitness center, but a great hot tub and pool. They do have 2 perfectly mannered, quiet and charming dogs, which was a plus for us, but may be a factor for someone.

This place was truly amazing. This was our last stop on a two trip around the Big Island and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. We stayed here for 4 nights and didn't run into a single issue. So much to do around the area and close enough to drive into any part of Kona for shopping or restaurants.

The rooms were private with doors to the front and private lanais to the back. We spent one evening out on the lanai enjoying some glasses of wine and small bites. The setting was perfect. inside the room had all the amenities needed. A french press for the early morning cup and if anything was missing, Clem surely would take the time to get your what you need.

I would make a trip back tot he Big Island just for this place!

Cheers!

Room Tip: Rooms are all the same, access to the driveway on one side and access to the pool through the private lanai.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Horizon, and the entire time was great. We had a number of activities we did each day, but would spend either the morning or afternoon hanging out around the B&B. Clem and Mike are excellent hosts, who are well informed about the area and gave us some great snorkeling tips on where we could go for easy shore access. Their various animals are nice and friendly as well, especially Bruno and BB (the dogs).

It's not the cheapest B&B around, but it's totally worth the cost for the experience and service you get in return.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are the same really, each with a lanai/patio and great views to the ocean.

There was an understated elegance to this B&B experience. The serene view, the sounds of palms at night, and saffron finches in the morning... The rooms, breakfast, pool, and hot tub all take advantage of the wonderful location.

Every detail was considered... wine glasses, candles and matches for a little romance... thoughtful books and tasteful art... even insulated water bottles in a fridge that automatically turns off during the night

Clem and Mike's recommendations were uniformly great... Always ready with a tip, ready to share an experience (they have wonderful animals), or hear about your latest experience on the island. There was a chance to meet other visitors, in the morning with a wonderful locally produced breakfast spread, or in the evening around the BBQ and pool area.

Horizon spoiled us.
