If you want to be right in the middle of the lush tropical hills with a great view of the water but worlds away from the rows of high rise hotels ...If you want five star quality accomodations and service...If you appreciate fine design that incorporates the beauty of the natural world... If you want to experience the history and culture of old Hawaii... If you want to be treated to five course gourmet breakfasts, wonderful hosts, interesting conversation...If you want to discover a Hawaii you didn't know existed ( we didn't ! ) ...all within a short, albeit bumpy, drive down to the water...come to Kane Plantation and meet Michael and David who have created this magical retreat.

We stayed in the Kane Suite with the garden; the pictures don't do it justice.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Kane Suite, complete with its own garden! The pictures don't do it justice.

Michael and David's attention to detail made the stay at Kane Plantation just perfect. David's breakfasts are scrumptious and too good to resist . Location, atmosphere and hospitality were absolutely top class. Tasteful surroundings, gorgeous views and garden. Here you gain a feeling of being thoroughly spoilt and away from the "workaday". The best value for money in all of the islands we visited. ( Oahu, Maui Big Island and Kauai)

If you only had one choice of accommodation in Hawaii, make Kane Plantation Guesthouse your only destination.

Don't be worried about the rugged farm road that meanders up the lower slopes of Mauna Loa through coffee plantations and avocado orchards, as a tropical paradise awaits you at 1,100 feet with stunning views of the Pacific ocean.

You will quickly discover that this is NOT your typical bed & breakfast, but instead, an exquisite luxury retreat!

Michael and David, are gracious hosts and are there to make you feel instantly at home the moment you set foot on this property. Their impeccable attention to detail is reflected in every aspect of this place, from the exceptional design and decor of each suite, the personalised service from each staff member, the beautifully designed breakfast, through to the pristine condition of the property.

My wife and I stayed at the Kane Suite for 3 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary and everything about it was heavenly. The indoor atrium and waterfall provided the well needed tranquility for us to unwind. The bed was extremely comfortable and you get to watch the sunset from your room and wake up to a stunning ocean view each morning. The covered lanai in front of the room was a great spot to relax and enjoy the complimentary minibar drinks/snacks or home baked cookies.

The decor at the Kane Suite was absolutely stunning as you are surrounded by original artwork from world renowned Hawaiian artist, Herb Kawainui Kane. It was a humbling experience as you see his artwork everywhere you go in Hawaii from postcard through to museums. Michael and David have done an outstanding job by keeping Herb's legacy alive.

Breakfast - my favourite part!! David is a fantastic chef who creates a different menu each day using locally grown organic products. We were treated to a 5-star breakfast comprising a generous selection of fresh fruits, breads, granola and cheeses at the breakfast bar, followed by a cooked breakfast. You wake up each morning eagerly wondering what scrumptious meal David has prepared for the day.

With Michael being a licensed travel agent, he willingly shares travel tips and good spots to visit around the island, and can help organise excursions should you require it. The Guesthouse is also well equipped as they were able to provide us with snorkel gear, reef walkers and beach towels for our trip to the beach.

There is also a heated spa pool a real treat especially in the evenings when you get to enjoy a hot soak under the moonlight or clear starry skies.

Like most travellers, our only regret was not staying longer at Kane Plantation. We will definitely be back here on our next Hawaiian holiday.

Mahalo Michael and David!

Where to start? Michael, David and their team have created a truly special place to stay on Big Island. They fully appreciate how central an accommodation choice is to the enjoyment of your vacation and they manage to exceed expectations on every front. Every last detail is attended to with thought and care, and with an eye to local products and considerations wherever possible. The hosts are charming, breakfasts are delicious, filling and creative, and the views from the property are beautiful. Our suite, Kanaloa, was set up to allow enjoyment of the outside while being inside, with sliding screens to the bedroom and living area, which we loved. The hot outside shower in this suite was another plus. We would return to Kane Plantation in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Kane or Kanaloa are on the first floor with great views

We could not have asked for a more perfect introduction to the Big Island. The place is truly sublime. Our hosts were the consummate professionals while down to earth and just plain lovely. The entire stay was magical.
