Really, Lillikoi Inn is like staying with a family member who has a home in Paradise. Shai & Trina treat you like family, and you quickly come to see them that way too. You are guests in their home, not anonymous hotel visitors.
Travellers need to consider what’s important to them. You need to be OK with being a houseguest, not just a guest. If you want to be in the city, or walk to things, need lots of privacy, or plan to have frequent loud sex, some other B&B might be a better choice. Because yes, Lillikoi Inn is not in-town, but is easy to find after the first couple times (the road to the inn is scary-steep though, unless you come from San Francisco), and noises do carry through the house.
But if you value fun conversations and genuine caring concern for your enjoyment, are laid-back, like meeting people, and enjoy fantastic breakfasts with home-grown ingredients, then stay with Shai & Trina.
Pretend your fun Aunt and chef Uncle have a home on the Big Island. You can borrow any gear (snorkeling, beach umbrellas, chairs, etc.) you may need. Plenty of advice on what to do and where to go is always available. Breakfast is at 8:00, not at 7:00 or at 9:00, because there’s no staff here – it is only Shai & Trina. You therefore also know you can’t make messes for them to clean – you willingly clean up after yourself. You get to play with oh-so-friendly Izzy (aka Decaf) the dog, and the house cats. You are embraced and loved and wonderfully fed.
At Lillikoi Inn, the place you are staying and the people you meet there are as much a part of your trip as the things you see and do - which is awesome. We will surely come back again.
