We hesitated about writing a review because we wanted to keep this gem a secret, but seems the cat's out of the bag...
This place is paradise. Seriously. Go here.
My husband and I spent three nights at this lovely bed and breakfast. We had read all of the positive reviews etc. on tripadvisor, but didn't really know what to expect beyond that. The instant we drove up to the gorgeous yellow house, we knew we had made the right decision.
Kenny and Kilohana run the most immaculate and wonderful bed and breakfast we've ever seen. They focus on every single detail. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The beds were maybe the most comfortable beds we've ever slept on. Breakfast every morning was delicious (and good for you! we hiked a lot and the breakfast definitely kept us going for hours). Plus they served delicious Hawaiian french press coffee first thing in the AM. This is clutch for me, as I need coffee pretty much the second I open my eyes.
We arrived basically with no plans for what to see on the island. Not saying that's a good strategy for everyone, but Kenny and Kilohana gave us tons of greats suggestions for places to see / visit. Then when we'd come back at night from a long day of hiking, exploring, (or hanging on the beach), they were there to greet us on the porch. Some of the most fun we had was unwinding on the porch at night before bed, having some of the (free) wine and chatting with K&K and the other guests (Note: there are only three rooms in the B&B, so it's a nice intimate, but social group. However, there's no pressure to hang and chat if you want to keep to yourself in the evening -- the first night when we arrived, my husband and I were so tired that we went straight to bed.)
Then when you go to bed, you can sit on your private porch and see the most wonderful view of the night sky ever. We had literally never seen that many stars. I couldn't believe it. I would go back just for the stars.
Plus laundry and wifi are included. And all the snacks you can eat!
All in all, we could not recommend more highly.
