About this listing
The Lilikoi Inn is situated on three unspoiled acres of lush Kona coffee country on the west side of Hawaii's 'Big Island'. All of our rooms come complete with a private bathroom, wireless Internet access, cable television, and a private entrance.
Each room comes with access to our relaxing hot tub, a convenient laundry area, as well as our newly remodeled gourmet guest kitchen. We serve all meals on our beautiful lanai (Hawaiian covered porch), which has expansive views of the world-famous Kona Coast. Additionally, the property has an abundance of lilikoi (the Hawaiian word for passion fruit), bananas, avacados, grapefruit and other tropical treats which guests are welcome to pick!
Interaction with guests
Shai and Trina are originally from the San Francisco Bay Area where they ran a bustling Cafe and Catering company for over 25 years. Upon their move to Hawaii's 'Big Island', they discovered the tranquil artist's village of Holualoa, nestled just above the larger town of Kailua-Kona. With perfect weather and serene tropical surroundings, they knew that it was unfair to keep their new home all to themselves, so they look forward to welcoming you with a cup of Kona coffee - grown just outside your door!
Shai is a trained chef with a broad range of culinary talent. Having lived and traveled in Brazil, Israel and Thailand, Shai combines his love of food from these regions with his creativity, to prepare sumptuous daily breakfasts, gourmet dinners or picnic lunches fit for any occasion - a very special treat, so let him know if you're interested while you're here.
Along with food, Trina & Shai have a passion for languages. Shai speaks five and Trina teaches part time language classes in Spanish, Hebrew, French, and English. Along with ensuring smooth operations and comfort at the Inn, Trina is often accompanied by her quiet and loving dog, Teddy. So if you miss your pet while you're away, we've got you covered.
