We had a lovely time at the Mango Sunset. The bed and pillows were wonderfully comfortable, and the shower was great! Since I am allergic to dairy products, Hans made hash for breakfast. This was a kind and delicious accommodation on his part! We also got to try the tamarillos, or "tree tomatoes" grown on the property. Masha was kind enough to share some of her Lyman family history with us. We watched the coffee roasting process and couldn't resist buying some to take home. We thoroughly enjoyed wandering the grounds.

It’s not often that I take the time to write up a place I have stayed – but in this case the time spent at Mango warranted it deeply. We had an almost two week trip to various parts of Hawaii, including a few days on the ‘Big Island’ at Kona – and we had decided to take a break from hotels for this leg of the trip – and we are very glad we did. Our stay at Mango was the most relaxing and restful part of our trip – we arrived late in the afternoon to find all of our arrangements ready, and we were able to just relax and enjoy the best view of the sunset ever from the front porch… the next morning we awoke to the sounds of breakfast and the smell of robust coffee brewing… our host joined us for breakfast on the porch and we ended up talking about the history of the island and ideas for the days tours… and every direction was spot on for where to best swim or where to find meals… All in all I highly recommend any time spent on the island of Hawaii – be spent here.

My husband and I stayed at Mango Sunset for four delightful nights and days. It is a unique experience to stay at a working coffee farm combined with a B & B. Hans and Marsha spoiled us with their outstanding estate grown, roasted on the premises, high quality organic Kona coffee each morning alongside fruit juices and fresh fruit salad made with some of their own fruits. On our first morning this was followed by a wonderfully crafted breakfast of home-made cheese blintzes slathered with sour cream and jam. The following day Hans made corned beef hash, eggs and cheese with herbs and a lovely tomato salad with additional herbs Marsha snipped from their garden. Our room, the Nai'a, faced the garden area while the other rooms had the advantage of looking out down to the ocean. Breakfasts were taken under the gazebo looking over the coffee trees and downward to the water while listening to and watching the birds at the feeders placed strategically nearby. Hans and Marsha are a fount of information about the culture and history of the area and along with their extensive library of books and maps in the kitchen area which guests are free to browse they gladly answer all questions. Hans is a former professor, among many other careers, and loves to regale guests with his stories while imparting much information about coffee cultivation and roasting, as well as almost any other topic you might want to discuss. Classical music playing in the background during the day is a nice treat. While the B & B is a bit out of the way if you don't wish to go down the hill into Kona for provisions or dinner, there is a charming market less than a mile from the house where you can take out prepared meals or hand-tossed pizza. All in all we would recommend staying at Mango Sunset and hope you do have the opportunity to see one of those beautiful sunsets while you are there.

We really enjoyed our stay at Mango Sunset BnB Inn. Possibly the best part were the breakfasts on the lanai looking out over the landscape and the ocean below. Coffee lovers beware. You could get hooked. The coffee alone was worth the price of the room. As a bonus you might also have the pleasure of an interesting and detailed explanation or even a tour of the coffee growing and roasting process as they do it at Lyman Kona Coffee. We definitely recommend staying here.

Before you turn, you'll see a Gas Station on your right. That's Matsuyama Store. Go NORTH (i.e., Left) on Mamalahoa Highway for no more than 500 yards. You'll see two concrete driveways next to one another on the Right (Mountain) side. The left or second one is 16 ft. wide and is ours. Turn RIGHT into the 2nd (left of the two) driveway. It turns from concrete to asphalt half way up. Stay on it all the way to our BnB (first building after the coffee farm gate) -- for about 2500 feet. Stop at the house to unload.

When, after 20 years of visits, we decided to settle in Hawaii, we named our 8 acre Kona Coffee farm after Marsha's ancestors, The Lymans, who came to the island as Missionaries in 1832. We cleared the virgin land, planted 3200 coffee trees, and built the BnB, barn, and our own house. We are enthusiastic divers, love to bike, hike, & be one with nature whenever we can (and are not sitting behind our computers or on the tractor).
