... these refuges. Anyone who violated the kapu could go to one of the refuges to ask for forgiveness. Once you'd been to the refuge, then you would not be punished.
This refuge we went to is now a national park. It was by the ocean and very beautiful. On the way we stopped at a painted little church. On the way back we stopped at a local hamburger place called Annie's Island Fresh Burgers for lunch and had wonderful hamburgers made of local beef. ...
... living in faith as being a leap into the unknown, something that is supposed to be really scary and filled with fear?
2. People often introduce God with a sense of fear behind it, but why when God is love?
for example, you may have heard someone say before "if you don't accept Jesus into your life you will burn in hell". This is possibly the worst tactic or way to introduce someone to Christ. It shows a completely wrong image of God and who on ...

Panaluu Beach is also a nesting ground for a number of types of sea turtles and when we were there six of them were resting on the beach before coming up to lay their eggs.
After hanging out there for a while we hopped back into the chariot and headed home.
Day One 22 July, Monday
Following a morning beach walk & swim, flew to the 'Big Island' - Hawaii, arriving around 12 noon. Experienced annoying delay in getting mini-bus to car rental place then long wait until car ready....still, found our new abode in time to do a little local exploring.

We explored the little village for just a short while as there’s not much left there, then made a quick trip to Safeway again for some supplies.
Back at the condo, Mac and Josie wanted to go to the pool, so Cheryl and the kids headed to the pool ...

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.
