This is not a B&B in any respect. It's a 3 room ranch in a decent neighborhood. It's been a few years since we were there, but when we saw other postings with the same experience as us we thought we'd confirm a few things. Within the first rant you experience, you'll learn about Dan's tax problems and how he...

Planning a long overdue trip to the Big Island. I am shocked that Diver Dans is still in business and had to write this review. It has been 10 years since we stay there! 10 years and it is still my worse vacation memory. 4 of us arrived to stay for 2 nights. When we arrived - 'Diver Dan' was...

Please don't let this dip$#!t, Diver Dan, ruin your vacation. It was exactly as all the other negative comments said. I just wish I had read this prior to staying. We walked away from four nights that were pre-paid and were able to salvage what was left of our vacation. One thing not mentioned in the other reviews is the...

My first visit to Hawaii was in 2000. We chose a bed and breakfast because it was less expensive. And the last night was free if you stayed so many nights at Dan's. Boy, do I wish I had known there was a way to review places online back then. Maybe we could have saved ourselves the trouble. This guy...

Probably as a result of the horrible reviews this guy has apparently changed the name to Kaohe Bay B&B. We have been to it and we agree with the worst reviews. Keep looking.

This resort is a joke..like other reviewer said..he is irrogant and talks about himself all the time. Never changed bathroom linen, god forbid you put a foot on the furniture. Oh yeah he definitely made sure you drank out of only the small coffee cups and how much the coffee costs. He will yell at you if you leave the...

Beautiful location, beautiful clean home. Gorgeous view. Only 2 rooms at the B&B makes it very secluded and quiet. We have stayed the several times over a 4 year time frame and keep going back. Dan is great fun and very interesting, and makes a delicious breakfast.

A lot of the other reviews are spot on. I and my partner were appalled by the treatment we received at the hands of the proprietor. He was disrespectful and rude, waking us up and talking to us like we were children! The lectures were another thing altogther, don't break ANY of his rules or he will be very angry!!!...

I've been meaning to write this review for some time. We stayed at Dan's in March for three nights. Overall we had a great time, Dan is an interesting and knowledable host and his house is a great design, set into the side of the hill it has one of the most serene and stunning settings I have seen. My...

Well. We didn't read these reviews prior to staying with Dan. I guess I'm glad I didn't or we might not have stayed. Our expectations were based on his web page and I was not surprised in any way by the accomodations, except that they were in even better condition than one sometimes finds in B&Bs. Since the other reviewers...
