This is a funky little place off-the-beaten path. We arrived in the dark (not so easy to find and be prepared to open/shut the gate to drive in) but once there, Barbara was very friendly and accommodating. We only stayed for one night, and since we arrived late, we ate our take-out dinner under the common canopy/deck and had a...

Beautiful place and beautiful People. Nature and wildlife around. It's not a 5* hotel with jacuzzi. It's a place where u can run away from civilization, take deep breath, relax, meditate or learn how to do that. Perfect to find yourself. Crew is awesome, food delicious, fresh and organic. I can find some crazy spiders, chameleons and lizards - cause...

After spending 5 nights in Kailua-Kona I spent 4 nights here and I much preferred my stay here. It felt like a tropical paradise. Barbara (the owner) and her Dragonfly team (family) are a wonderful, welcoming group of people who are happy to answer all your questions and give recommendations for things to see and do and nearby places to...

We had just one night in Kona, but were delighted with the accommodations and view from Dragonfly Ranch. The breakfast featured oat groats, a variety of breads, local fruits and a wide array of jams. And the best snorkeling we found in Hawaii was located just minutes from the ranch.

We loved staying at the ranch. When we arrived, we were given a free upgrade and our room was so inviting. The bed was fabulous and the night noises of the geckos was so different and relaxing. Barbara was very welcoming and gave us great recommendations of places to go. If you like peace and tranquillity, this place is for...

The Dragonfly Ranch is not for the folks looking for the modern "Resort" where everything is out of Star Trek, with tuxedoed servers and your slippers walk out to meet you. The Dragonfly is beautifully, organically rustic with down to earth people who look after you. The owner Barbara, has several small dogs, the cats gleefully live on lizards and...

Dragonfly Ranch has several perks and a good stay for the right type of traveler, but it is certainly not the place for everyone. The management takes pride in creating an open-concept, natural B&B. We loved the fresh fruit breakfasts and took advantage of the free snorkle gear available to use during our stay. On the downside, it is pretty...

An honest review. These lovely folks may not have seen our Marriott We Are Not warning about sound sensitive people needing to beware that sound travels in Hawaii. Most of our guests are ok with that. But VERY sound sensitive people notice the frogs and such more than other people. Wise advice to note. We do, however, provide earplugs for...

Aloha - I've now stayed at the Dragonfly Ranch two times. Both times with children in the Honeymoon Suite. I am absolutely in love with Barbara (the Owner - she's wonderful), the location (close to the City of Refuge, Two Step - best snorkeling, and access to morning swim with wild spinner dolphins), the quality of the organic food they...

We had such a special time at the Dragonfly and feel privileged to have met Barbara and the guys. I cannot begin to explain how if feels to fall asleep listening to the lulling sound of the tree frogs and share your breakfast with a gecko. Breakfast was simply beautiful we have never tasted such fresh fruits and tried different...
