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!
