... the Captain Cook monument - are two top places on the list for snorkelling around here. Just from the shore, I can spot schools of vibrantly colored yellow tang fish. It is also here that spinner dolphins hang out. On a good day, you will find a school of dolphins put on a show and sea turtles tanning on the beach.
The cool ocean water is soothing and relaxing for an afternoon snorkel.
... Mac made a bamboo horn, then made the gourd. The task of getting the netting around the gourd was a little tricky, so we had to finish that later.
Mac and Josie played the Papamu Kahalu’u game, which is a lot like Chinese checkers except you can’t move diagonally. It was tough to say who won, since Josie was a little unsure how to play and probably didn’t make every move accurately, but they had fun. Mac was about ready to ...
... rafts. Absolutely mesmerizing!
Eventually I made my way back to the boat so I could hit the head. The crew was very adamant about not peeing in the wetsuits even though we were in the water... so I'm sure everyone else ****** all over the toilet and floor of the head, much like I did given the rocking waves of the boat. Somehow this is better for the crew to manage?
I got back in the water one last time, but after an hour of treading and swimming, ...
... and I was able to find enough stuff to fill my days and have time to lounge when I wanted to. This side of the island is warm and humid and has little rain. My last day it was cloudy and dripping but no one seemed to mind! If you get tired of the heat, drive an hour north to Waimea where the cooler winds blow. Or, soak it up while you can because you are most likely heading back to somewhere that is not as nice as where you ...
... I spent ten minutes with my jaw open when I saw how beautiful the trees are, especially the one near to the hotel.
My plan was always to spend a few days here to get over the jet lag and have a 'normal' bed, before moving to Kalani and the jungle. Its probably the last time I will spend alone. I came to Hawaii to experience a completely different life, and after two days I realise that I have done some walking, some ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Luana Inn Captain Cook
Paradise and so relaxing!
We had such a wonderful time here relaxing and being on a beautiful hillside overlooking the fantastic views of the ocean.
A short walk to the bay where you can have many fun options for water activities. Ken and Erin are the best hosts. Thoughtful and ready to help out to make your stay just perfect. There are many resources available to help you get around and know more about the Big Island. The breakfasts were wonderful and plentiful. Excellent coffee -- and we bought some from the near by coffee plantation to take home with us. It made our summer travels complete and we would highly recommend that you see for yourself.

I contacted Luana Inn after reading all the wonderful reviews here at Travelocity and had my fingers crossed that there would be availability on short notice. I was VERY lucky -- not only because there was, in fact, a room available, but also because after having stayed there, I can't imagine a better spot to spend three days. Just wish that I could have stayed longer.
Luana Inn is what makes B&B's such a treasure. Ken and Erin are energetic, helpful, and really neat people, the kind you would choose for friends, and they serve an excellent start to the day! Great coffee, healthful choices with a flair for combining the saturated tastes of the local fruit with the staples of "good eatin'".My "foodie" husband and I often hiked the day away with the energy off breakfast.
Arriving at Luana Inn for my first visit to the Big Island of Hawaii I immediately found this place paradise! Located on the Kona Coast just a few miles down the raod from Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park this Inn exceeds number one in my book for Bed & Breakfast! Nestled on the lush Kona Coast overlooking the ocean in Captain Cook, this place is worth every dollar spent. My morning started off walking down to the kitchen and having some fresh white pinapple grown right on the property. There was also tasty sweet mango, warm homemade bread, and freshly brrewed Kona coffee. The surrounding area was extemely peaceful and tranquility filled the air. I did not want to leave after my last night, especially after gazing into the amazing sunset that I watched out my front door, see the attached photo. The accomodations were extemely clean, neat, and fit the theme of a perfect Hawaiian vacation. Erin and Ken the Proprietors are wonderful people, made me feel right at home. In addition there is a nice size swimming pool any family would enjoy. I highly recommend this little known about Inn at a great nightly rate to match it!
An Island Enchantment
My cousin & I stayed at the Luana Inn this month and what a find! Owners Erin & Ken are warm, friendly and make a mean homemade coffee cake. They were accessible if we needed anything but not nosy or pushy, and they gave us great advice on local activities and restaurants. The property is incredibly beautiful, from the nicely decorated, clean rooms to the panoramic ocean view. The inn is located a little off the beaten path and is very quiet and peaceful. We didn't even need to lock the door to our room! The experience was perfect in every way and I can't wait to go back.
Beautiful clean rooms, Erin and Ken are impeccable hosts. The tranquil, relaxing inn is a twenty minute walk from Kealakekua Bay where my husband swam with the spinner dolphins on the last day of our visit. Next time we plan to stay at least a month!
Lovely rooms, relaxing ambiance, thoughtful owners...excellent!
Luana Inn was extremely comfortable, beautiful, and quiet, and exuded exactly the ambiance of relaxation that we were looking for. I loved the Inn's location on rural Napoopoo Road - it felt remote and yet we could walk to the the beach in an easy 15 minutes and experience world class snorkeling.
Our room was spacious and comfortable, with every detail attended to. Among the best touches were the memory foam mattress, the wine glasses in the kitchenette, and beach towels and mats. They literally thought of everything you could want on vacation in Hawaii!
I would absolutely recommend Luana Inn to anyone looking for the perfect Hawaiian experience.
Lauana Inn, the perfect retreat!
My wife and I spent a wonderful week at the beautiful Luana Inn which overlooks majestic Kealakekua Bay on the Kona cost of the big island of Hawaii. We spent wonderful afternoons swimming with dolphins, sea turtles, and hundreds of tropical fish in the beautiful water. The afternoons were spent sitting by the beautiful pool overlooking the vast Pacific Ocean and watching the amazing sunsets.
The accommodations were perfect, the breakfasts were perfect, and Erin and Ken are the perfect hosts. The rural setting is tropical and soothing. The beautiful birds and wild geckos are amazing. We plan on returning soon and staying longer.
Ahh..Living the Good Life!
Staying at the Luan Inn was a incredibly relaxing time for me; how could it not be with such an amazing view of Kealakakua bay and the ocean, a pool and hot tub perfectly situated to watch the sunset every night, cozy rooms, and such warm and welcoming hosts? Exactly. Go ahead and spend a few days there, explore the shore, swim with the dolphins, eat ripe papaya, and drink locally grown coffee. Ahh..Living the Good Life!
We truly found paradise at the Luana Inn in Captain Cook on the big island of Hawaii. The owners, Ken and Erin, have attended to every possible detail. The room was wonderful--very clean with lovely decor. The lawn is beautifully landscaped with a pool. The ocean view is spectacular. We enjoyed breathtaking sunsets every evening. Breakfasts consisted of a variety of fresh baked breads, fresh fruit (much of which is grown at the inn), pancakes, eggs, kona coffee, juice and tea. The owners were very accessible and very helpful. It is located in a quiet residential area in South Kona just minutes from great beaches. In as little as 20 minutes you can be in the resort town of Kailua-Kona. The Luana Inn is a wonderful place to stay for so many reasons!
