Our family stayed at the Luana Inn earlier this month and enjoyed it very much. We've stayed at several B&Bs in the area in past years and this is definitely our favorite. Ken and Erin were wonderful hosts- as someone else commented, they are there as little or as much as you need the to be, and were extremely helpful with suggestions and information.
The breakfasts were fabulous with excellent Dr Paulos' hyperlocal coffee and fresh fruit, plus a variety of hot and cold dishes that changed daily (each one better than the next). The inn is located off the main road so it is quiet and it's much closer to the water than other B&Bs we've tried in the area- with a perfect climate and no mosquito problem. It's a wonderful base for snorkeling, as others have commented- and also for exploring the whole S Kona area which has many things to see. We should have stayed longer! We hope to come back to Luana Inn on future trips.
PS There is a surprisingly good snack bar (Kalama's) just around the corner and their shave ice is delicious!
