We had a lovely bedroom with a king-size bed, mini-frig, and our own lanai which was great for enjoying the sunsets over the ocean! Nice shared spaces with the owner, Rhonda A, and the other guests. Everyone we met was delightful. Rhonda A provided a wealth of information about the area, especially her recommendation for a great snorkeling beach. The location is just off the main road which is perfect for visiting all the attractions around Honaunau and Captain Cook. Rhonda A was a wonderful host and and her home is charming and comfortable. Although we were guests, Rhonda A made us feel like friends. We would definitely stay with her again.
Location is perfect to get to all the places of interest. Rhonda was the perfect host, enjoyed our chats. Yummy treats in the morning! Never got tired of the sunsets off the deck.
Immaculate, spacious, and wonderfully comfortable. Amazing sunset views and a great location. The proprietor was outstanding...accommodating and very helpful....every piece of advice she gave resulted in a great island experience. Very convenient to coffee farms and incredible snorkeling sites
This is a beautiful location and home to spend some time on the Big Island. Unfortunately, our stay was only for one night, but we will certainly book here for our next visit. Rhonda, the owner, is a really sweet woman who works SO hard to keep her home immaculate for her guests. She pays attention to every single detail. She even spent a good 45 min or so with us when we arrived, helping us get acquainted with the best spots for snorkeling in the area and showing us around her property. Moreover, this place is a great value. You get breakfast included (and free rein of the kitchen), beach towels and snorkel gear (which can be pricey to rent) and there's a gorgeous pool overlooking the garden if you just feel like lounging by the pool. The wrap-around balcony has lovely views of the ocean and surrounding hillside - my husband and I really liked our room, which had direct access to the balcony, so we could sit out and enjoy the sunset and a beer (mini-fridges are in the rooms too!). Another thing to note, Rhonda makes a KILLER banana bread and other tasty baked goods, which she puts out for her guests to have with their breakfast. She probably won't be thrilled that I'm sharing this, but she had an extra loaf of her banana bread that she handed us to take on the road as we were leaving - just out of the blue! We were so touched by that. Of course, that's not something she can do for all the guests that come through, but I just wanted to highlight this as an example of the warm hospitality and level of service that you'll experience at this B&B/vacation rental.

We stayed in several b & b s this trip & this was hands down the best. The room & house were amazingly comfortable & Rhonda is a welcoming host who thought of every detail. Location was close to great beaches & snorkeling. Highly recommend!!!!!!
