Four bright and cozy rooms; stunning ocean views; located on active family farm for 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. 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. In the morning, we all eat breakfast in the Ocean View Gazebo, 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. Come back to "talk story", have a drink seated on your lanai chairs, and be awed by our miraculously colorful "Mango Sunsets".

Our Stay at the B&B

3.8 on August 05, 2017

Rooms were small and damp. No A/C. Ceiling Fan worked. Privacy was good. Mosquitoes were terrible. Marsha was very friendly but we were surprised that she ate breakfast with us every morning. Coffee was excellent. .

B&B on organic coffee farm

2.6 on April 19, 2017

The location is very good. The common kitchen use is very convenient. However the room is a bit cluttered with unneeded furniture, while no clothes hangers provided. The space for it can be easily organized. Also housekeeping use chemicals, which is not coming along with a practices of organic farming. The lecture and tour of organic coffee farm by the owner exceeded our expectations. It was very informative and we learned a lot.

First night great choice

4.6 on April 07, 2017

We were happy to be above the crowds with a beautiful view cooler temperatures and gorgeous landscaping. Hans and Marsha made us very comfortable and served a delicious and satisfying breakfast. The coffee was outstanding!

Unusual and so many rules

2.6 on November 18, 2016

Very odd set of instructions, must bring documents, honk to notify of arrival, drop bags then park, must back in, small room where I was asked what I thought of it before I was shown the room, etc.

Innkeeper Response
This is not really a review of the Inn. What's odd about bringing your confirmation with the room name? We have 4, an d when 3 are empty, I do not automatically know which room it is, and when you don't, we need the instructions. Honking or phoning the main house is done to check you in more quickly. You "must" not back in, but it is more convenient to get out that way. Anything about the room? The view? The food?

Great views, peaceful enviroment

4.6 on November 04, 2016

Spent a wonderful 6 days at Mango Sunset. The Breakfasts are all fresh and extensive. The accommodations are quite clean and adequate. If you are looking for a restful retreat from the hustle of a downtown hotel this is the place for you. About 10 minutes up the hill from downtown Kona, 30 minutes from Saddle road. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, then please go to one and leave the beautiful B&B's for the rest of us. We had ocean views with an on-suite. The only thing that was missing was a closet for hanging clothes. The house rules were not onerous, no shoes in the house, no laundry after 9 pm, and B'fast at 8 am.

A great time in Kona

4.0 on September 26, 2016

We were very satisfied with our stay at Mango Sunset BnB. The room was comfortable, well equipped, and very clean. The wifi worked well. Big pluses with Mango Sunset BnB are (i) its location close to the airport and a short drive to Kailua-Kona, (ii) the nice breakfast and the efforts of Marsha and Hans to make it a great time for social exchange and sharing of information, and (iii) the willingness of Marsha and Hans to do whatever may help their guests take full advantage of their time in Kona. (note: I rated the breakfast in the "onsite dining" line for ratings)

Beautiful breakfast views of coffee plantation

3.8 on August 05, 2016

Hans, the owner, is a bit grouchy but I found this amusing - as I expect he intended. The room was nice and I loved the private shower/bath. The road to reach the BnB is a bit challenging, especially for a non four wheel drive vehicle, but its pretty much normal for the big island do there's no fault there. The breakfast was delicious and prepared promptly on schedule. Being from an earlier time zone I would've like the breakfast even earlier so I could star other activities. Hans is very knowledgeable but be careful not to ask him something he hasn't documented already. That will definitely bring out his grouch (or go ahead if you're amused by his grouchiness like me).

Mango Sunset B & B a Great Place to Stay

5 on July 10, 2016

Mango Sunset is a great place to stay for a few days while on the island of Hawaii. The rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with a nice variety and always great company. The access road was a challenge to find the first time but after that there were no concerns. The sunset view over the ocean was priceless.

Lovely Oasis High Above the Shore

4.4 on March 29, 2016

Our hosts, Hans and Marsha were gracious, enjoyable to chat with, and Hans makes an excellent breakfast! Mostly fresh ingredients picked right from their farm. Our room was cheerful and the back patio looked down to the seashore. Fresh breeze blew in the patio door and made for wonderful sleeping.

Interlude on a coffee farm

3.4 on February 20, 2016

We had a nice stay for a couple of days at Mango sunset B&B. The farm is located on the slope of the volcano, and there is a really nice view over the tops of the coffee trees, with the ocean down below and beyond which is visible from sliding doors on three of the four rooms, and from the outdoor breakfast seating.. We had one cloudy evening, but saw one very nice "mango sunset" as advertised! We were aware of some reviews from some people who didn't like the demeanor of our host, Hans. We found Hans to be charming and genuine- and believe he is a really good organic coffee farmer! It is an interesting and very convenient location.

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). Our 9 year old daughter Karen is in 5th grade.
