Bed & Breakfasts offer a setting that is more intimate that that of the resorts or hotels and are a wonderful way to get to know the island.
At the moment we only list a few local B&B’s on this page. Take a look below to see if one of our recommendations is to your liking. If you don’t see anything that is to your preference you can also have a look at the Hawaiian Islands section on the Vrbo website1. Make sure to browse the reviews and not only trust on ‘star ratings’ because the best information on such big listing sites is often hidden in the comments!

Bed & Breakfasts on the Southern Kona Coast
The Ka’awa Loa Plantation above Kealakekua Bay
The Ka’awa Loa Plantation is a Bed and Breakfast on the grounds of a 5-acre coffee and tropical fruit farm. They are located 8 miles South of Kailua-Kona in the heart of the Kona Coffee Belt on the Big Island of Hawai’i at an elevation of 1,200 feet. This has the twin benefit of temperate temperatures and fantastic views over the ocean and Kealakekua Bay.
This B&B gets raving reviews for their location, their warm hospitality, and their great breakfast. They offer two classes of rooms:
- A budget option consisting of a twin bedded room (beds can be put together & be made as a king) with a toilet and sink just next door down in the hall, and outdoor private lava rock garden showers and/or an indoor shower are also available. The room is at the front of the house and may not be a good fit if you’re a very light sleeper, but is perfect for the budget-conscious traveler! Breakfast included.
- A standard option including a room with a queen bed and private bathroom. You can read more about this room and see some great photos here.
