My wife and I had never traveled to the Big Island of Hawai'i, knew nothing about the hotels or B&Bs in the Kailua-Kona area except from what we read on-line. I did my research and found the Lilikoi Inn owned and operated by Shai and Trina Yerlick. We arrived at night in the rain and Shai guided me from the Kona airport to the Lilikoi Inn which is up in the hills overlooking the Kailua-Kona area. We were exhausted from our long flight and Shai helped us with our luggage to our room and we immediately fell asleep. In the morning after waking up we went out to the lanai for breakfast. We couldn't believe the view, We were up high in the hills overlooking the hillside and ocean. Two other families were at the table, Shai and Trina made sure we all were introduced and felt at ease, breakfast consisted of fresh banana in a fresh papaya, juice, fresh egg on toast and home grown and roasted coffee. I didn't want to leave the lanai, I just wanted to keep looking out over the lush green vegatation down the hillside to the ocean. We spent our first two nights at the Lilikoi Inn, and after touring the island for the next week, we came back to the Lilikoi for our final night and morning before leaving for home.We celebrated our final morning and 30th wedding anniversary at the Lilikoi. The Lilikoi Inn is a special place in the hills of Kailua-Kona, and Shai and Trina make you feel like family and provide tips and hints for things to do and places to see on the Big Island.My wife and I plan to stay at the Lilikoi Inn on our next visit to the Big Island.
