About

Four bright and cozy rooms; stunning ocean views; located on active family farm for Certified Organic Kona Coffee Estate; very quiet; very interesting; 10 minutes from Kona town and airport at 2100 ft elevation (WE CAN SEE BUT NOT HEAR THE PLANES); 10 degrees cooler than Kona--we need no air conditioning (average temp. in the 70s). Full hot breakfast in the Ocean View Gazebo included; Coffee Farm Tours by owner/operator Dr. Eckert with reservations. Outdoor BBQ Kitchen available to guests. Our Breakfast always includes our multiple award-winning 100% Organic Kona Coffee, teas, 100% fruit juices, tropical fruit and our famous hot farm-style breakfast. After comfortable and peaceful nights, enjoy the morning on your Lanai. There, overlooking our 3200 tree Kona Coffee farm, you can take in our spectacular ocean view while chatting with fellow guests or your hosts, munching your banana-macadamia nut pancakes and star fruit filled papaya boat. See miles of coast, check out the surf line, count the boats, or use our binoculars to watch the birds, among them wild turkeys and the endangered and regal Hawaiian Hawk (18 species have been counted on this farm). Then drive off to your day of diving or biking, Volcano watching or golfing, deep sea fishing or kayaking. Shop and dine in Kona, explore historical sites or quaint artist villages Holualoa and Hawi. Come back to "talk story", have a drink seated on your lanai chairs, and be awed by our miraculously colorful "Mango Sunsets". For SPECIALS, please go directly to our own Mango Sunset BnB website.

A very nice place to stay

4.2 on November 11, 2014

Staying in a B&B on a coffee plantation was off the beaten track and intrigued me. So we booked the room. It wasn’t that easy though, internet glitches made things complicated but a phone call directly to the owner ironed things out pronto. When we arrived, our host was waiting for us even though we only had given a tentative time of arrival. The room was very clean. A bonus is the outside BBQ kitchen available to the guests where we cooked ourselves a great steak supper. Utterly delicious! Breakfast included, served in a gazebo overlooking the town below by the ocean, was very, very good (macadamia nuts pancakes!) even if, on that first morning, it was somewhat short of my larger appetite. (I was too shy to ask for more food) This was all fixed up the next day as I was given the opportunity to seconds and even thirds of a varied menu that included fantastic tasting sautéed organic mushrooms! The ambiance was relaxed as the hosts are very well traveled and full of interesting information. The topic of coffee, for a coffee lover like me, was very well covered and a wealth of knowledge was gained by all. I must add that if you are seeking a romantic setting as one review noted, this isn’t the primary vocation of the B&B. We were happy to partake in a family type breakfast with the other guests that made our experience all that more lively and enjoyable. An interesting feature is that the plantation is 500 meters above sea level thus it is 10° Fahrenheit cooler than the sweltering humid heat down below on the island. For a Northerner from Canada like me, it was a welcome relief. Sleep was undisturbed by either high humidity or noise. Great Bed & Breakfast!

Pleasant Stay

4.2 on October 29, 2014

Very pleasant start to our vacation. Enjoyed the view and learned a lot about coffee. Conveniently close to airport and yet far enough to not be aware of airplane traffic.


Good Review of Kona Coffee Production

Second stay, quiet, relaxing, outstanding view. Enjoyed ourselves.


Mango Sunset

4.8 on July 29, 2014

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were encouraged to make ourselves at home at shown around. We took advantage of the grill and made our dinner and ate outside one evening. The morning breakfasts outside on the lanai were fun. There were conversations with other guests about plans for the day and Hans and Marsha offered suggestions to compliment the outings. The views were fantastic!


Fernblick bei Hans

5 on June 08, 2014

Zum Abschluss unserer Traumreise waren wir bei Hans auf seiner Kaffeefarm. Nicht nur, dass wir einen wunderbaren Blick auf die Küstenlinie und insbesondere dem Flugplatz hatten (aber kein Lärm, dazu war er weit genug weg) war Hans ein toller Gastgeber. Kartoffelpuffer nach pommerscher Art - war eines der Gerichte, mit denen er uns überraschte. Über Kaffee wissen wir jetzt auch mehr und nicht zu vergessen die tollen, manchmal auch tiefgreifenden Gespräche über geschichtliche Themen sowie Gott und die Welt. Hans, Dir und Deiner Familie alles, alles Gute, Gesundheit und immer viele zufriedene Gäste. Noch ein Hinweis an die Leser. Nehmt die Telefonnummer Eures Kreditkarteninstitutes mit auf die Reise, es kann sein, dass man Euch die Kreditkarte sperrt, weil der PC meint, dass Eure Bezahlmuster dem eines Betrügers gleichen, dann reicht ein Anruf und alles wird wieder gut! 2 Erw. aus Hamburg im Mai 2014


Speciality coffee with a stunning vista!

3.6 on June 06, 2014

The Honu room was tighter quarters than I expected; luckily the lanai expands the space into something comfortable. Personable hosts, all business in order regarding service, very welcoming to children. Room and bathroom need a deep clean (dust on walls, under bed, very visible); bathroom could use a little touching up to be really fresh feeling. The breakfasts were fantastic and scrumptious, if a little on the too-sweet side (lacking in protein perhaps?). And the coffee, the coffee!! The coffee plus vista are the spotlights - a must for serious coffee lovers. The best coffee I have ever tasted.


Home away from home in Hawaii

5 on May 21, 2014

We stayed at Mango Sunset B&B for our week long stay on the Big Island. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the common area has great accommodations (Computer, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, refrigerator, beach towels, hammock and barbeque). The owners (Marsha and Hans) are extremely welcoming and offered us wonderful tips about places to go and things to do on the island. They also provided fresh fruit, estate grown coffee, juice and tasty breakfasts made with fresh organic ingredients (many of which were grown on the farm!). The owners treated us like family, and we had quality time with their two cats and adorable terrier, Abby (outside only). It's conveniently located near Kailua-Kona and the fantastic beaches of the northwest coast. We'll definitely be back on our next visit to paradise!


Comfortable stay

3.8 on May 13, 2014

Pretty location and super convenient for the airport. Breakfasts, and of course the coffee, were delicious. Hosts were quite helpful and pleasant. The only caveat, which I've noticed in a few other reviews, is Hans' straightforwardness can feel a little abrasive if you're used to the aloha mentality.


More like a hostel than a B&B

1.0 on May 03, 2014

The sunset is beautiful but this is the worst B&B I have ever stayed at. The owner is arrogant, there are no locks on the guest rooms, the bathroom rugs and bedspreads are filthy, there are no pillow cases on the pillows, breakfast includes stir fry meat served raw with potatoes and onions, the owner is taken to shouting at the staff and his wife in front of the guests. Find another spot to view the sunset and skip staying at this unpleasant place.

About the innkeepers

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).
