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.

The space

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.

Shai was friendly and helpful. Loved the breakfasts on the lanais overlooking kona. Sunsets were beautiful! Rooms were clean, comfortable. Able to use kitchen common to other guests to store our food, fruit. Loved visiting Shai's coffee field and fruit trees below the inn. His home- grown avocados were the biggest we've ever seen! Shai greeted us with a delicious papaya /banana smoothie and some avocado w bread. This was so welcomed after a long day of traveling and hiking! There are cool breezes at the inn all day as you are up high in mountain above Kona. Very quiet at night. Driveway steep, but paved. Very nice experience.

Trina and Shai were wonderful hosts, always ready to help with itinerary planning, giving driving directions, suggesting restaurants and shopping. They were generous hosts too, sharing the wonderful fruits grown on the property and free-range chicken eggs freely. The breakfasts were creative and plentiful, lots of fresh fruit, followed by interesting and delicious dishes that flowed from their well-traveled and catering experiences. Their special qualities are complimented by the fabulous home in the coffee-growing hills overlooking Kona bay, where you can lounge on the lanai with a glass of wine (or fruit juice) and watch the sun set and feel the scented cool breeze caressing your sunburnt skin. It's paradise in paradise.

Response from Trina Yerlick:
I did offer a different room at a diffferent cost but she declined. This was only a one night booking, so my rooms are not all available for one night. The guest actually decided to go elsewhere.

Wonderful host, fabulous location, warm welcome, clean and comfortable room, delicious breakfast. We could not have hoped for a better experience. Our flight arrived late at night, but we were very warmly welcomed and made to feel at home from the moment we arrived. Aloha and Mahalo!

Trina and Shai were wonderful hosts, full of Aloha spirit, and very accommodating. Their B&B is located in the beautiful cool air above Kona, with a wonderful view.

We were so fortunate to book a room at the Lilikoi Inn at the last minute! We were greeted by Shai who cheerfully showed us our beautiful room and the lovely grounds, then surprised us with delicious smoothies made from the organic fruit grown on the property. Our room was comfortable and although it had the best view of the ocean, we really couldn't see it through the lush vegetation. The next morning we had a delicious breakfast made by chef Shai and served by Trina. Breakfast included yummy coffee from their own gardens. The Inn is even better than described in the listing. There is a secluded hot tub and outdoor shower that we did not see mentioned in the listing. The hosts were extremely warm and friendly. Be sure to let them know ahead of time if you have any dietary restrictions. Enjoy your stay in paradise!
