Captain Cook, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
The newly renovated Rainbow Plantation Bed & Breakfast is located on a lush tropical 3 acre plantation on the Big Island of Hawaii. South of Kailua-Kona between Captain Cook and Kealakekua on a cooler 1300 ft elevation with sweeping ocean view. No need for AC up here !
It is a natural, secluded retreat away from traffic and stress, surrounded by many varieties of tropical plants, flowers and organically grown fruit trees. This wild life sanctuary is great for eco travelers, bird watchers and animal/nature lovers who seek a true Hawaiian, non-touristy, non toxic environment in which to relax and unwind.
We offer comfortable, recently renovated private rooms all with their own private bath.
Free high speed Wi-Fi !

We enjoyed our stay at Rainbow Plantation. Christian was really helpful in recommending things to do and beaches to see. We especially enjoyed Kekaha kai state park, which we would probably have never gone to were it not for his recommendation. You have to travel down a terrible road (basically a lava field) to get to beach. But, when you...

Management response:

Great you liked our place, and that beach. Many places around here like that, less crowded and beautiful, and I'm happy to share them with our guests. The Peacock however, we cannot cook and share, he is part of this place... Thanks for staying here !

They did not say a thing or complain when here, in fact I offered them many tips and they stayed for...

Loved the Rainbow B&B - after a few days at Wikiki it was the perfect antidote to the rush and bustle - being a haven of quite and calm amongst the rainforest. And super friendly host and the opportunity to mix with other guests and hear their stories. Made for a great stay. Highly recommended!
