Excerpts from our In-Suite Guestbooks


Thank you so much for a memorable & hospitable stay. Truly world class accommodation and the attention to detail really is over and above! Your travel tips around the island were spot on, and the breakfast to die for. We will be the first to recommend your guesthouse to friends and family.

S&S, Sydney, Australia. Kanaloa Suite, June 2016.


We are very sad to be leaving this beautiful place tomorrow.  It was so lovely to meet you all (including KOA Pina Colada and Pineapple!)  This has been the highlight of our honeymoon! Go raibh mile maith agat!

N&S, Galway, Ireland. Kane suite, June 2016.


We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, special place. Our room and the grounds were gorgeous, the lanai was relaxation itself, and the breakfasts (and the conversations with you both) were great. You seemed to have thought of every little detail that could contribute to making our stay perfect. We will recommend this place to all our friends and family and we hope to be back soon.

B&A, Minnesota, USA. Kanaloa suite, May 2016.


Thank you for your stewardship of this lovely estate.  The room is fantastic and we loved staying here. Hope to return, too.

P&S, California, USA. Kane Suite , June 2016.


Like your very own Banana Bread, this B&B is truly a slice of paradise. We are so grateful to have stayed here, met you all (people and animals alike), and to have been so unbelievably pampered. This is absolutely our favorite place we have ever stayed, and we are already dreaming of a swift return.

M&J, Massachusetts, USA. Kanaloa Suite, May 2016.


Thank you for the wonderful experience we had here on the Big Island. Your hospitality has made our  stay something we will always remember. Thank you so much!

J&A, Alabama, USA. Kane Suite. May 2016.


Thank you so much for your hospitality. Everything has been perfect; all the amenities, the hammock, the bed, and of course the breakfast! We could easily have spent all our time in the suite and property, and would have considered it a successful Hawaiian vacation! We hope to return to Hawaii and this room. Thanks for everything.

S&M New York, USA. Kanaloa suite, May 2016.


We feel incredibly lucky to have spent time in your beautiful home. Thank you!

K&G, Paris, France. Kane suite, May 2016.


Thank you so much for making our stay at Kane Plantation during our honeymoon so wonderful. We have not even checked out yet but already we miss our beautiful room, the stunning views, the outstanding hospitality you show your guests, and the breakfasts! We will definitely make it back for an upcoming anniversary.

J&M, Washington, USA. Kanaloa suite April 2016.


Thank you for sharing your home and farm with us.  This was a truly unforgettable experience.  We thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your knowledge of Hawaiian culture and history.  We look forward to returning soon!

M&M, Colorado, USA. Kane suite, May 2016.


Thanks you so much for providing the perfect home base for a great first Hawaii experience for us both! Your attention to detail and attentiveness is remarkable. It has been so special to learn about and experience a bit of the local culture and history. Our breakfasts have also been one of our favorite meals here. We will sure miss the birds and breezes tonight!.

J&J, Florida, USA. Kanaloa Suite, April 2016.


Thank you so much for truly a magical visit.  Our only regret is that we spent so little time here.  But, that enables us to plan a longer visit next time around.

Everything was so well organized and the Kane Suite and the view were spectacular.

L&R, Hong Kong, China. Kane suite, May 2016.


Thanks you so much for all the kindness and hospitality during our stay. This place is spectacular and we feel like the snow goddess when we are here. We so appreciate all the beautiful touches. A flower blossom everywhere our eyes turn. This, our second stay felt like home!

L&L Alaska, USA. Kanaloa suite, April 2016.

S&J, Washington, USA.  Kane suite, April  2016. 


This has been an amazing few days. We are so sorry to be leaving. Everything was perfect, the rooms, the views, the hospitality, the small touches and especially the breakfasts. You guys are doing a wonderful job.

L&M, New York, USA. Kanaloa suite, March 2016.


What a small piece of paradise is Kane Plantation. Michael and David you have both been so kind and lovely. We have really felt cared for and very important.Maybe we will make it back one day, but if not we have some wonderful memories. Aloha!

P&J, London UK. Kanaloa suite, March 2016.


What a wonderful stay we had. Michael and David give complete new meaning to “attention to detail”. We felt like we were at home away from home, which is about the nicest compliment you can give when traveling! I hope we are lucky enough to return. The staff are terrific.

A&K, Ontario, Canada. Kanaloa Suite, March 2016.


If paradise is half as nice!

S&A, Birmingham UK. Kanaloa Suite, February 2016.


You have such yummy sheets, pretty bath products, and a perfectly positioned chaise that I am trying to come up with a scheme where I can stay. I am not handy in the kitchen but I do have a degree in agriculture. I could be in charge of chicken relocation, or perhaps chief mongoose wrangler, or maybe assistant to the assistant in charge of avocado harvesting. Can I stay? Its snowing in Minnesota, and 50 degrees colder. Please.

M&D, Minnesota, USA. Kanaloa suite, February 2016.


Thanks you Michael and David, our stay was absolutely divine! Would not make one change, everything was perfect. Our new favorite place, we will be back.

J&D, California, USA. Kanaloa suite February 2016.


Thank you very much for such an amazing experience!  We were blown away by your attention to detail, great location, and delicious breakfast (seriously, you deserve a Michelin recommendation at the very least!)

It was also great to learn about Herb Kane’s life and art by staying at his former residence. Fantastic Experience!

M&O, San Francisco, USA Kanaloa suite, January 2016.


Thank you Michael and David for an amazing stay! Wonderful hospitality! Best breakfast ever! We truly appreciate everything. Thanks for a wonderful memory that we will never forget.

J&D, Texas, USA Kanaloa suite, January 2016.


We can truly say that we have never stayed anywhere as exquisite as your Big Island getaway.  Your raise hosting to an art form. We felt sublimely cared for, without fuss, from beginning to end. If ever we are back on the Big Island, we will surely see you again. Sweet Koa is the friendly icing on this tropical cake!   

R&S, New Jersey, USA  Kanaloa suite, January 2016.


We’ve been so happy to stay again at your wonderful Kane Plantation! Although it has been a perfect place 2 years ago already, you still improve this heaven on earth. Thanks for the wonderful time, again.

N&D, Berlin, Germany. Kanaloa suite, January 2016.


We got married in Hawaii because of Kane Plantation. All your customized attentions contributed to make this moment very special! We appreciated it very much. We thank you for this beautiful honeymoon experience in Hawaii!

A&M, Paris, France,  Kanaloa suite, December 2015.


So sad that I have to leave this bliss so soon - too soon!  Thank you David and Michael for being such gracious and attentive hosts.  Beautiful property, lovely accommodations and fabulous breakfasts! 

M, Toronto, Canada. Kanaloa suite, December 2015.


We enjoyed our second stay in your wonderful home as much as we did our first two years ago.

Kane Plantation is a magical place and we will certainly come back again and again.

Thank you for the excellent breakfast and your hospitality. Nothing more to add - it’s perfect!

S&J, Basel, Switzerland. Kanaloa suite, December 2015.


Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. This was truly the perfect way to begin our honeymoon. The outdoor shower, hammock, views, breakfasts and friendly atmosphere make this an incredible place that we’d love to come back to!

It is so incredibly beautiful here. Our stay could not have been more perfect.

C&B, Norwich, UK. Kanaloa suite, December 2015


Thank you so much for making our anniversary a special one!  Your attention to detail - the flowers, the champagne were not overlooked. It was the small things like daily cookies, turn down and ample breakfast that particularly impressed  us. After the hustle and bustle of busy tourist ridden Waikiki, this was exactly what we needed to feel like we actually got a holiday and quiet time with each other. We truly wish we could stay a week and hopefully an opportunity will arise when we cross paths again. With much gratitude!

S&A, Adelaide, Australia. Kanaloa suite, December 2015


Thank you for the perfect beginning to our visit to the Big Island to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We so appreciated the welcoming environment and hospitality throughout our stay. Kane Plantation Guesthouse has now become a lasting part of our memories.

R&J, Minnesota, USA. Kanaloa suite, November 2015


Pretty Medicine : Maria Bowling stayed with us late October, early November 2013. A most extraordinary and talented guest, Maria had an encounter with an Orca while she was here. (Orca sightings are extremely rare in Hawaiian waters.) Maria composed some fabulous images of the photographs she took on the farm.
