“Lovely Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

My husband and I stayed ant the Luana Inn earlier this month. We had a absolutely wonderful time. The atmosphere is very romantic, warm and inviting. The view of the ocean is truly beautiful. You are torn on whether to go out and snorkel, hike or sightsee or to just kick back at the pool which overlooks the ocean from a high vista. The hosts are everything you want in a Inn host. Our room was perfect. We opted to keep the windows open and to listen to the night breeze.

Great spot and lovely hosts. Easy little walk down to some wonderful snorkelling. Easy drive to the shops and places to eat. Quiet and peaceful. Wonderful breakfasts and great conversations with Erin and Ken. The Kona coast is quite different than the other places in Hawaii, not better, not worse, just different, so make sure you stay in a few locations if you have the time.

After 10 hour flight back to NYC, we vowed not to get on another plane soon. But here we are in Brooklyn a week later remembering our wonderful mornings and evenings sitting outside our room looking out at the ocean .
Ken and Erin are the best possible hosts - warm, helpful, available when needed, unobtrusive. We do not look for antique-filled, just-so B and Bs. Luana Inn was perfect for us. Would go again in a flash - if only HI were closer.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay with Ken and Erin. Breakfasts were varied and delicious, and all was homemade. Our room was clean , roomy, and very comfortable. Sitting by the pool afforded great views of the ocean. Bonus: free laundry access! The location is great for exploring the area, from kayaking across the bay to the Capt. cook monument. We also went to the national park nearby and snorkels in several areas. We would happily stay at the Luana Inn again!

My husband and I are not resort-type people, nor are we B&B people, but when I read reviews and realized the rooms were more like studio apartments, I knew this would be the perfect place to stay. It definitely was! Our room was comfortable, spacious, and decorated beautifully. The pool and hot tub were steps away from our front sliding doors, and the view was outstanding. Erin and Ken were such pleasurable hosts, with many suggestions of places to visit on the island. Both of them were wonderful cooks/bakers, serving breakfasts that were both delicious and healthy, always accompanied by fresh local fruit. The Luana Inn is easy walking distance to the beach, and a nearby coffee mill. This was a place we would return to again and again, and will highly recommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Makani room, which had a beautiful view of the ocean.

Our second time at Luana Inn. See our earlier review (Oct 2013) for actual details about the place.

Now, even better than before. Last time, we had pointed out a few deficiencies, such as the old noisy air-conditioner in our room. That unit has since been replaced by a powerful quiet new airconditioner. Last time there was no fragrance-free laundry detergent (you can wash your clothes here); now it is available. We like a place that reads their TripAdvisor reviews and acts upon them, and this is such a place. Our thanks to Erin and Ken. They still have the cat and the dog and the boys, but all are unobtrusive.

Erin's popovers make her breakfasts clearly superior to Ken's. Sorry, Ken; sometimes the truth hurts. There were more people here this time - including some recent young Duke graduates who were quite proud of themselves - but it was restful nonetheless. The weather was different - more overcast, and an actual short gale blew up briefly one night - but this is Hawaii. Sit back and read a book. The coffee roastery is still a short walk up the road - we bought bags of Kona, and then ordered more from there after we returned home. We also visited the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory, up the main road in Kailua-Kona, and ended up ordering (more) chocolate from them when we returned to the mainland.

Ken and Erin - We will return as soon as our absurd professional schedule allows. Have "our" room ready. Give that goofy hound a pat on the head from us. And tell Yuki the Cat that no no no she cannot have the ham off the pizza, no ....

Not enough space to describe our stay here. The hosts/owners were friendly and provided excellent advice for visiting the big island. The view from the pool and hot tub can't be beat. The room was clean, food excellent (they will even take requests, try the banana or pineapple scones). Stayed during February 2014. Very much enjoyed the breakfast and poolside conversations with both the hosts other guests. The private setting was most relaxing as you are away from the hustle and bustle of a large resort yet conveniently located for touring the entire island. Unit kitchens are equipped with everything you need for preparing lunch or dinner yourself and there is a large grill poolside.
