We had just one night in Kona, but were delighted with the accommodations and view from Dragonfly Ranch. The breakfast featured oat groats, a variety of breads, local fruits and a wide array of jams. And the best snorkeling we found in Hawaii was located just minutes from the ranch.

We loved staying at the ranch. When we arrived, we were given a free upgrade and our room was so inviting. The bed was fabulous and the night noises of the geckos was so different and relaxing. Barbara was very welcoming and gave us great recommendations of places to go. If you like peace and tranquillity, this place is for...

The Dragonfly Ranch is not for the folks looking for the modern "Resort" where everything is out of Star Trek, with tuxedoed servers and your slippers walk out to meet you. The Dragonfly is beautifully, organically rustic with down to earth people who look after you. The owner Barbara, has several small dogs, the cats gleefully live on lizards and...

Dragonfly Ranch has several perks and a good stay for the right type of traveler, but it is certainly not the place for everyone. The management takes pride in creating an open-concept, natural B&B. We loved the fresh fruit breakfasts and took advantage of the free snorkle gear available to use during our stay. On the downside, it is pretty...

An honest review. These lovely folks may not have seen our Marriott We Are Not warning about sound sensitive people needing to beware that sound travels in Hawaii. Most of our guests are ok with that. But VERY sound sensitive people notice the frogs and such more than other people. Wise advice to note. We do, however, provide earplugs for...

Aloha - I've now stayed at the Dragonfly Ranch two times. Both times with children in the Honeymoon Suite. I am absolutely in love with Barbara (the Owner - she's wonderful), the location (close to the City of Refuge, Two Step - best snorkeling, and access to morning swim with wild spinner dolphins), the quality of the organic food they...

We had such a special time at the Dragonfly and feel privileged to have met Barbara and the guys. I cannot begin to explain how if feels to fall asleep listening to the lulling sound of the tree frogs and share your breakfast with a gecko. Breakfast was simply beautiful we have never tasted such fresh fruits and tried different...

We were quite surprised upon entering the Dragonfly. The photos on the website showed a charming house in the trees. In reality it is a poorly built, ramshackle, dusty, added onto building. The property is inhabited by many people who pay the owner so that they can live and work there. They sleep in a shed, an old trailer, and...

Sounds like Gail did not have the pleasure of meeting the volunteers that come from around the world (Madagascar, France, Germany, Netherlands, etc) creating a community of joyous people who take pride in making the Dragonfly beautiful, clean and fun. One of the things on our "list" of things to do has been to repair our brown-paper-bag (not vinyl) flooring....

My wife and I stayed on the Kona side of Hawaii for a week here. This is amazing place. It's very quiet and relaxing. Barbara and company were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was quite large, and we always had a nice tropical breeze; the room was very open (no glass in windows, no locks on doors etc.) It...
