Unbelievable location in the middle of the juggle-its really like that. Very friendly and nice and openminded team. Good spirit, helpful - even when we came back because we thought we have something forgotten. It turned out we have not!:) Thank you Christian for everything.

DO NOT BOOK HERE. Christian provides an abissimal level of customer service. Instead of taking responsibility for my reservation being double booked, he blamed other booking websites.

We stayed for 4 nights on the Rainbow Plantation and got the Fern Room. It’s not equipped super-modern but was clean. The highlight for us was the ocean view from the room. The facility on a former macadamia nut plantation is beautiful with a koi...More

Peaceful B&B on 3.5 Lush tropical acres conveniently located near the best snorkel spots south of Kailua-Kona. We have 5 various rooms, from a cozy fully renovated boat room, perfect for honeymoon More couples, to a large 2 story 2 bedroom unit. A rooms have wifi, a private bath and deck, some with oceanview, and in high season mid Dec-Mar include a large plentiful breakfast with cereal, homebaked bread, fruits etc. Easy to find location by the highway between Captain Cook and Kealakekua, yet quiet and peaceful. Close to lots of great places. Hosts are happy to share insider tips and help plan and book trips. Welcome ! Less
