Wow, Wendi could not have been more welcoming. The location is ideal and provides the best of both worlds: close proximity to the airport, amazing beaches, shopping and yet is situated in a tropical wilderness. The accommodations are 1st class. The bed is incredibly comfortable!! Everything is super clean and Wendi has loads of suggestions of what to see and...

My husband and I stayed at Honu Kai 5 nights and were so happy friends had recommended this property. Wendi and Dave are an engaging fun couple who clearly love their work and set the bar high when it comes to hospitality and creating a sense that you've found paradise. The rooms are immaculate, tastefully decorated and fresh flower flourishes...

My husband and I stayed at the Honu Kai for 5 nights. Several of the other visitors were repeat guests, some had booked in for several weeks at a time. Wendi and Dave have rightfully earned their elevated status on TripAdvisor. They are the epitome of hospitality - a rare blend of hilariously fun, unbelievably generous and totally professional all...

We recently stayed at the Honu Kai B&B for three nights and wish we could have stayed longer. It was a very comfortable place to stay, and the hosts Wendi and Dave made us feel very welcome. Our room was beautifully appointed, as was the rest of the property. The three course breakfast was freshly prepared and beautifully presented; and...

The Honu Kai B & B was the last stop on a 30th anniversary celebration trip to the Big Island of Hawaii in early January 2017. We have stayed in B & Bs for more than 30 years while traveling, and would rate the Hunu Kai as one of the top properties we have stayed in. Not only was the...

Excellence, is not our goal at Honu Kai B&B, but rather it is our standard. From what we do to maintain this standard, to who we choose to help us achieve it, the pursuit of excellence is always first for our guests. Ina, our "substitute innkeeper", taking care of things while we were on vacation is just an example. A...

Dave and Wendi are super hosts, - friendly, helpful, resourceful and fun! We enjoyed our stay in their BnB very much.

It was great having your family stay with us at Honu Kai. Thanks for mentioning to the TripAdvisor readers that a car is needed to get around and experience the island. It is called, "The Big Island" for a reason. We at Honu Kai would be happy to assist future guests in finding a better priced rent car for your...

Our stay was nothing short of spectacular! This was our second and final stop on our wedding/honeymoon trip to Hawaii and we couldn't have been happier with the choice to stay here.

We stayed at Honu Kai in late November, I can honestly say that the experience is up there with the best hotels, never mind B&B’s Dave and Wendi clearly know their business and have created an idyllic spot of Paradise just high enough above Kona to have a pleasant temperature year-round.

We loved this bed and breakfast. It was very relaxing and Dave and Wendi are excellent hosts.
