Reviewed 10 March 2017

Well first of all, the grounds are absolutely beautiful. Our host, Michael was a pleasure to talk to and he really goes above and beyond to make you feel at welcome and relaxed.
The breakfast he prepares every morning is wonderful and the view is absolutely amazing.
We did not stay in the main house, but the cottage. It was well stocked with everything we needed and it was quite roomy. An excellent room choice if you have an extra person. My only wish would have been for a more comfortable bed. The mattress was quite firm and I do have some issues with my back so hard mattresses don't agree with me. That is really the only reason my review is not 5 stars.
I would recommend this place over any of the resorts or chain hotels in Kona. It was a true Aloha experience.

Room Tip: The cottage is great if you have a party of 3.

We had a fantastic stay in Sept 2016 as part of our honeymoon. Greg was very helpful over email before our trip and Michael was an exceptional host who was full of good advice about the local area, history and cuisine. The inn itself is beautiful and incredibly well looked after...such a treat staying there! All the best, Seb and Nat

Some friends highly recommended this B&B for our first visit to the big island. This was the perfect place to relax and unwind after a week on Maui.
Michael, Greg and Hannah were the perfect hosts during our stay. The breakfasts were amazing. Banana pancakes and macadamia nut French toast along with several fresh fruits-bananas, pineapple, strawberries and avocado were some of the selections we had each morning. The Kona coffee was made from beans grown right on the plantation. We enjoyed our breakfast from the lanai overlooking the ocean.
We look forward to returning to Hawaii and to the Ka'awa Loa Plantation.

Greg and Michael are great hosts at this beautiful plantation.

Our room was immaculate and the house itself has so much character. The house is very beautifully decorated and well maintained.

The breakfast was terrific. Hopefully you get to try the banana crusted french toast!

The driveway is very steep. Take it slow and it will be just fine! :-)

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ka'awa Loa Plantation. The view was amazing. Our hostess, Hannah, was very welcoming and made a great breakfast. The rooms were perfect and we had a wonderful time. The location is good for exploring the area and centrally located. The driveway was dauntingly steep at first, but you get used to it pretty quickly. We booked the Ka'awa Loa Suite and Garden room for our teenagers. Both rooms were well appointed, clean and suited our needs perfectly.

Room Tip: The Garden room was great for our teenagers.
