... do. Instead we spend nearly the entire day in transit. A little frustrating to say the least. Still, I’m getting heaps of cool plane experience, both in the air and radio and taxi procedures at airports, which can be challenging at times, to say the least. Great experience for this novice L-plate pilot.
In haste and a little desperation, as the first guy we emailed isn't picking up the phone, as soon as we reach our hotel in Kona we take our option to go ...
... to move on. We really don’t’ do well staying in one place too long, on vacation that is. While it’s very beautiful here and the condo has been wonderful, we’re ready for the change of scenery that Volcanoes will provide. Mark says the house is in the middle of the rainforest! How fun!
Tomorrow: Pack up, leave Kona and drive to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

... were and how inconvenient it was to be so late getting to the hostel. It was nearly midnight by the time we finally made it there but as a bonus she upgraded us from a 6 bed dorm to a private double room! Well done Matt!
To be fair the hotel wasn't too bad and, with the upgrade, the owner had gone up in our books slightly, but we still decided we wouldn't stay there for the whole time we were on the Big Island as it turned out we were in the middle of nowhere pretty ...
... we saw another turtle on a rock just a few feet from the sand and he too was incredible. Such amazing creatures. I could have watched them all day. We walked up to a further part of the beach but there were lots of people camping and no turtles and it wasn't as comfortable as the lower part so we returned to our original spot. We saw numerous turtles just off the beach in the ocean. It was so fun to watch them. We watched the first turtle we saw for ...
... the food court, is the same as the ones in mainland. We did buy Hershey Kisses - with mac nuts inside, and Marlin fish jerkey. Also saw they carry the dried cuttlefish, though it's made in China (a bit disappointing.....).Took a short walk around Kaloko-Honokahau National Park. This park was established to preserve, protect and interpret the traditional native Hawaiian activities and culture that thrived on the site. While strolling along the beach, I ...

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.
