Reviewed 26 May 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at Lilikoi Inn with our hosts, Shai and Trina, who made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Beautiful private rooms, quiet and immaculately clean with gorgeous views of the lush hillside tropical gardens and coffee plantation, the Kona coast. And the food - absolutely wonderful! We had fresh papaya and mango every morning and then a yummy hot breakfast fritata with sausage and crispy potato. Many of the ingredients come right from the garden - avocado, macadamia, lilikoi, papaya, bananas, fresh vegetables, even the eggs from their "free range" hens. Lovely private hot tub, beautiful gracious lanai with an magnificent ocean view. Very helpful and enthusiastic advice on places to visit, excellent directions. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: I've stayed in two of the gracious, comfortable downstairs rooms - very private and quiet. Ther...

Good points - very spacious, private and comfortable (Plumeria) room. Very quiet location with lovely views from the terrace and even better from the upper balcony. Marvellous breakfasts and excellent service. Shai provides great advice on places to go and how to get there. Loads of beach equipment there to be borrowed. Other points - access to this B&B is tricky. Our initial impression was 'oh my God'. However, it's not so bad after the first time - keep to the right hand side of the entrance off the main road (LHS coming out of the drive), engage first gear before entering drive and just go nice and slow to negotiate the very narrow (but well paved) drive. Parking is a bit awkward and the parking area is
just dirt, messy if it's rained (it often did). There isn't much soundproofing.

Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and think we did better here than if we had stayed in Kona.

What an incredible experience at Lilikoi Inn :) From the warm welcome at our arrival to the great breakfast and the "high above" view of majestic Big Island's shore, our stay was fantastic! Our hosts, Shai and Trina, really gave us the sense of the famous Aloha hospitality that characterize Hawaiian Islands. They were particuleraly knowledgeable of the highlights of Big Island; from more popular areas to hidden gems known by very few, they can tell you exactly how to get there... Lilikoi Inn is more than Bed and Breakfast; it's a little paradise in paradise!

Before our trip, we were looking at the reviews and thought it was almost to good to be true... We are now believers!

You can't go wrong with a stay at the Lilikoi Inn. Shai and Trina will make your stay a memorable experience with their great hospitality, incredible breakfasts, and local knowledge.
The Lilikoi Inn's location makes for an easy trip to Kailua-Kona, and easy travel to all points around the Island.
We enjoyed a six night stay in the Lilikoi room, a large and comfortable room with large bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious, although we expected that, as in an earlier career Shai and Trina catered our wedding. Great fresh fruit juice, fresh fruit bowls, and a delicious hot course are accompanied by the Lilikoi Inn's own Kona coffee, which is excellent indeed.
You will not be disappointed with a stay at the Lilikoi Inn, only that your vacation had to end.

This B&B really is one of the best places to stay in on the Big Island. It is private and tucked away up the hill, but a 5-10 minute drive from some of the best beaches I know!! Our room, once again, was beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable,and private. The breakfasts were to die for, leaving me stuffed through lunch and ready to take on the day. Owners Trina and Shai know more about the island than most locals and can recommend!! I swam with turtles, snorkled, and went to the local avocado festival upon their recommendation.

I will never stay another place! After 4 visits this really has become my home on the Big Island.
