I very much enjoyed my stay here. Wonderful hosts, other guests were interesting, loved having a kitchen to prepare a home cooked dinner after more than a week away from home. Plotting my next visit.

Good location, tranquil setting, hospitable hosts

We stayed at the Crow's nest with our adult children and the setup provided us with two separate bedrooms at a reasonable rate. The outdoor guest kitchen was great when we wanted a cup of tea or a glass of wine in the evenings. The communal kitchen was well stocked with dishes and amazingly clean.

Loved the calm and serenity

Loved the Rainbow B&B - after a few days at Wikiki it was the perfect antidote to the rush and bustle - being a haven of quite and calm amongst the rainforest. And super friendly host and the opportunity to mix with other guests and hear their stories. Made for a great stay. Highly recommended!

would surely go again

Very nice B&B with access to an outdoor kitchen - perfect to sit outside in the Hawaiian nature and prepare/eat dinner. Very nice rooms and bathrooms (we stayed in two different rooms during the week).

BnB in a well-kept paradise

4.4 on May 14, 2009

This BnB is surrounded by nature, flowers, trees and animals - which is great! Rooms are only upper average (clean and equipped with fridge), but who cares if the surrounding is so nice. Very nice and friendly owners who prepare great and healthy breakfasts. We definately can recommend this place.

wonderful place to stay

We stayed at the Rainbow Plantation for the first part of our honeymoon in the Crow's Nest. While the early morning wake-up call from the roosters was at first less than perfect, once we made our way up to breakfast all was forgiven. The most delicious pancakes, fruits, granola, coffee, juice...absolutely wonderful! Our room (really more of a cottage) was spacious, comfortable and clean. Watching the birds wander by as we sat on our front porch or watching the peacocks take refuge from the rain right in front of our glass door was just so cool! Definitely not for those who prefer a fancy resort experience. But for the rest of us, absolutely a great place to stay!
