We were blown away by this beautiful property, and also the warmth and graciousness of the hosts, Michael and Greg. The plantation features sweeping views of the ocean and Kealakekua Bay -- all of which you can enjoy from a large covered wrap-around deck. On our arrival, we were greeted with a plate of fresh fruit and juice -- not...

I've never felt more comfortable staying at a B&B. Michael and Greg were more than friendly and accommodating. There was a wide assortment of delicious food for breakfast including fruit grown on the premises and a very tasty entree along with locally grown Kona coffee and assorted breads, cereals, etc. The weather is perfect in that area, and there is...

What a value! My husband and I both felt like we were staying with family, rather than a vacation rental. Michael and Greg are so welcoming and truly go the extra mile to make you feel welcome in their home. We would not hesitate to stay here again. If you're planning a trip to Kailua-Kona, stay here, rather than a...

An excellent value for a really special B&B. Greg and Michael are amazing hosts and cooks. The house was sold out but we still felt very private. Would return again in a moment.

Had a wonderful time here...stayed four nights and found the home to be casually elegant and peaceful. Spent time sitting on property and found nice places with privacy. The location is also convenient to see attractions in Kona and Volcanoes, yet located in serene area with much beauty. Greg and Michael are very generous with their time and helpful with...

After traveling for more than 4 years around the world we have to admit, that this place is a well hidden secret. Charming interior, great hosts, delicious organic breakfast, heaven on earth! Do not miss Michael's plantation tour and do not forget your snorkeling gear. We will be back for sure.

It's so rare to find a find a B&B that delivers on all levels for the asking price particularly in high-end vacation locations like the Big Island. Ka'awa Loa isn't inexpensive, but it delivers on every level which is fitting for a B&B in this budget range. Michael and Greg have created an amazing experience for their guests from the...

Trip was marred by headache but it was a beautiful place to hole up and ride it out. the proprietors are professional, competent and helpful. They knew where to rent a kayak, watch the Super Bowl, get lunch, get snorkeling gear, offered a spot to wash out salty swimwear and hang it to dry, etc. Breakfast was wonderful. Nice friendly...
