My wife and I stayed for 4 nights or our 40th wedding anniversary and 60th birthdays. We have stayed at about 20 B&Bs and our room (Ali-i Master) was the best ever -- very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Beautiful views from the room. Room was not cheap, but worth every penny. The room surpassed most 5-star hotel rooms (at least twice the price). There's no conditioning, which first concerned us, but we stayed cool, as the room as terrific ventilation (windows can remain open during rain).
Great snorkeling in bay. We paid to go out on a boat one day (Sea Hawaii Rafting, which was wonderful) but also drove about 2 miles to snorkel out from the beach (snorkeling was just as good). No decent beach is walkable from the B&B, but there are many nearby with car.
Very highly recommended!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kealakekua Bay Bed & Breakfast and our Ohana Kai Guest Cottage are comfortable, open-air Mediterranean/Polynesian-style villas overlooking the pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay on the sunny South Kona coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, as well as being gently cradled behind by the majestic Pali (cliffs). Located in the heart of Kona's lush coffee country, this five-acre tropical estate is a peaceful and romantic haven, set amongst beautiful park-like gardens of fragrant flowers, colorful plants, stunning trees, and singing birds. We are only a five-minute walk from the ocean, snorkeling, and kayaking; also conveniently located with a ten-minute drive to stores and restaurants of our small mauka (up-country) communities of historical Kealakekua and Captain Cook – where the people still live a slower paced life of days gone by, as well as some of the best restaurants on the island! Our Bed and Breakfast provides our visitors with a lovingly prepared breakfast featuring local produce, while our Ohana Kai Guest Cottage does not include breakfast, it does allows our guests the convenience of a fully appointed vacation rental. ... more less
