My family and I stayed here once. $500 dollars was stolen in the middle of the night from my mother in her locked room. I hate to think what might have happened if we would have woke up during the robbery. Do night put your family at risk. I was told by the owner that we would recieve a $500...

We stayed here twice, once in 2007 and previously in 2006, since we like Kona so much. The first year was okay, all things considered. The owner is not at the property, and it had changed hands sometime around 2005-2006. The previous owner(s) must have sold the place "as is." The raggedy ann and andy dolls mentioned in other reviews...

My husband and I are planning another trip to Hawaii. As I was again looking for B&B's, I remembered the horrible experience we had last year on our honeymoon. My husband and I booked this B&B for the last night of our honeymoon. We were running late for check in due to the fact that there was bad weather traveling...

We did not enjoy our stay at Kiwi Gardens at all. To say that the people have eclectic tastes would be an understatement. I love character, but this was a little extreme. I think the thing that freaked my wife out the most was that there were Raggedy Ann (sp?) dolls, decorations, books, knick-knacks, etc absolutely everywhere. She couldn't sleep...

The Master Suite has a large solid stand up screen (8 sections) separating the bathroom from the bedroom. There is not one raggedy doll in the Master Suite. I am a raggedy doll colector and display two dozen in the huge family room......Over the 15 years of greeting guests in our beautiful bed and breakfast I have heard sooo many...

This was a very nice place to stay. We had the master suite, which was clean and nice sized. We were also allowed to store our stuff in their garage when we went over to stay in Volcano for the night. We picked it up the next day before our flight out of Kona. Very convenient!

The Kiwi Gardens B and B was the perfect place to relax, relax, relax! We three "native" islanders know what "aloha" is and Shirlee and Ron have plenty of it! Ron even fixed our car! Shirlee's breakfasts were awesome and we enjoyed chatting with her and the other guests. As islanders who have not stayed at B and B's before,...

My husband and I have returned several times to Kiwi Gardens and have never had an unpleasant experience there. The warm welcome, explanation of house rules, the excellant breakfasts, the cleanliness of the rooms, the beautiful grounds, reasonable rates, and the friendliness that the hosts give throughout the entire visit keeps us coming back for more. We have recommended Kiwi...

Boy, did I have a different, and much less positive experience than the other reviewers. To understand what made this experience so awful, I need to provide a little background. My girlfriend and I flew in from Los Angeles, arriving at Kona Airport around 9 in the evening. United was scrimping on costs, so we got an unexpectedly minimal dinner...

I find it amazing that this individual was so upset because he helped himself to our private refrigerator and I was not pleased with his "hunger" behavior. Since he had not prepaid for his three night reservation and he was so upset, perhaps he should have left after the first night. Also amazing that he would be so upset because...
