... in the water and then climbed back aboard for lunch. Following the BBQ most of the travelers had their fill of the face-down viewing and took to swimming and enjoying the on-boat slides and diving board.
Towards the end of the trip Robert says to me "I bet you wont jump in" while eying the high-dive. I think Robert underestimated the amount of time I spent throwing myself off the roof's of houseboats growing up so his jaw literally hit the ...
Got up early and we were ready by 8. The sun was out and it was a beautiful day today. We left around 9. We would drive towards the south, to the South Point and hopefully the green sand beach, the black sand beach, and finally to the Kilauea volcano. We would stay at the Volcano Inn for one night.
It took us close to 2 hours to arrive at the South Point. Before going there, we first headed towards the green sand beach. This was a hidden gem known to ...
... 8217; they said. I think they realised they had screwed up and were trying to take us, so they would not have to credit us for their mistake. I told them we had made other arrangements and did not need their services. Then at 9.10 their driver turns up… not very good communication… so he was sent away and we left at 10 as we had planned.
Fortunately we had allowed plenty of time for the journey, so the extra ...

I have paid for the most of my trip and I have saved a great deal to pay for the majority of my outreach phase, though I am short of funds and am trying to fundraise another $2,000 which covers visas, flights, food, housing, ground transport, and mission money to go towards the kids I am serving. ...
... was repeatedly patting its tail on the surface of the water, amazing. After the excursion we weren’t ready to get back on the ship so we went to a beach near the dock and relaxed, swam, and snorkeled some more.
As the ship was ready to leave Hawaii, there was a Farewell Lei Ceremony. At poolside (because environmentally we can’t throw them over the side of the ship) everyone threw in their leis as our location guide said a Hawaiian chant and told us the significance ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mango Sunset BnB at Lyman Farms Kailua-Kona
I stayed at the Mango Sunset BnB 3 nights and found it to be an exceptional place. Both Marsha and Hans were personable, always ready to share their considerable knowledge of the area, coffee growing (their other business), and provided wonderful, unusual breakfasts. The solitude and views were exceptional values! Yet, saying that, the location is perfect for those persons wishing convenience to shopping, sightseeing, dining and the airport. Sharing a bathroom was a novel experience and initially I was a bit apprehensive, but found it was no problem. It only required all guests being considerate and responsible. The congenial,free-flowing spirit of the Mango Sunset BnB certainly enhanced my stay in the beautiful State of Hawaii and I would definately stay there again. The prices are very reasonable, and if for nothing else it's worth the stay just for one of Hans' breakfasts.
This was our very first experience with a B&B, and we were not sure what to expect. We have visited Hawaii several times in the past but have always stayed in hotels or condominiums. This time we were without kids and wanted a little more privacy and intimacy. Mango Sunset is a small B&B located on a small family owned coffee farm. The hosts, Hans and Marsha were wonderful and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and "at home."
We will surely return!
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were cordial and welcoming, providing us with lovely, clean, comfortable rooms. Hans & Marsha have put a great deal of energy and effort into creating a unique setting and space for their B&B. We found the tour of the coffee farm very enlightening. Our hosts provided great food as well as the opportunity to meet other travellers. They also went 'above and beyond' in getting up early to make coffee for us as well as set out juice and muffins since we had an early flight when we left Big Island.
My husband and I loved being able to be so close to Kona but up on the farm where it was cool quiet. It was hard to believe we were so close to town and the airport. We learned alot about coffee and really enjoyed seeing the plants fowering and then being able to have coffee from that harvest when we returned on our way back to the mainland 11 days later. The hosts were friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts and interesting conversation. There are many varieties of flowering plants and fruit trees all around the property. The room was quite comfortable and we enjoyed the lanai and the awesome views of the coast and sky. A telescope and binoculars on the lanai make viewing a treat. I look forward to a return visit to this very special down to earth home.
My husband and I stayed for 5 days in December and then moved south to another farm for 5 days. This was our first visit to Hawaii. Our stay with Hans and Marcia was most enjoyable and very accommodating. They provided us with maps and told of places we should not miss, gave us great restaurants to stop at and were extremely friendly and helpful. Hans is a wonderful cook and his breakfasts were quite large and quite delicious. His coffee, was a delightful experience as well and all others on the island paled in comparison. We found his enthusiasm for farming coffee and the research and knowledge he shared to be fascinating and certainly helped us understand just how much work, effort and love he has put into his land. While we were there, another guest couple there was looking to buy a coffee farm as well. Has was not afraid to share his knowledge and offered to assist in the search for an ideal location. The great view from our room, the peace and quiet and overall friendliness were most welcoming and we look forward to another visit as soon as we are able. We, too, are innkeepers and have run our own resort in Wisconsin for 29 years and have taught hospitality management. Mango Sunset BnB is NOT lacking in hospitality!!
We stayed for a week at the Mango Sunset Bed and Breakfast in Kona, Hawaii. The hosts were extremely gracious and attentive to our needs, including making sure we made the most of our time on the Big Island. Hans is an accomplished SCUBA diver and made sure we found our way to some of the island's best shore dive sites, and led me to the best deals on rentals for tanks, etc.
If your into the twilight zone or are just looking to get just stright scared out of your pants, then look no further than the Mango Sunset BnB at Lyman Farms. Not into the hustle and bustle of the city? Hey there are hundreds of things to do at the BnB such as helping the owners with chores, learning about water filtration systems and the origin of a coffee bean, even watch a family of turkeys walk across miles of coffee bean terrain. Mango Sunset BnB is an affordable stay and quiet at all hours of the day....just be sure to go to bed by 7 p.m. and arise in the morning at around 6 p.m.
I recently brought team of young athletes to Mango Sunset B&B because it fit out budget best. The owners knew that we were a party of nine, eight players and one coach, and tried to accomodate us as best as possible. We actually fit in there pretty comfortably.
