Did not like the fact the city part was 18 miles away (Kona). Hated thee rooster crowing at 4:45 - 5am in the morning. Did not like that bathroom facilities were outside the room.

Shabby, nothing like the pictures.Posted Dec 8, 2016
Pros: Great bed!

Less than satisfactory, live worms of some kind on the floor of the bathroom.

An Unforgettable Magical ExperiencePosted Oct 12, 2016 on Orbitz
Pros: Very helpful, flexible and considerate manager Barbara, delicious breakfast, the singing morning birds and the wake up call from the nearby roosters.
Cons: Warn the customers of what they may face.
Location: Location difficult to find, especially in the night. But plenty of water sports in the beaches nearby.
The place was difficult to find even with the help of Google maps. The front rickety gate closed with the rope. The driveway and the parking place was all loose gravels. The room was on a steep uphill climb with no lights to see in the night. The room had NO AC, NO ceiling fan, NO telephone, and NO TV. The room had no front door for any privacy, only a sliding screen door and two hanging drapes acting as front door. The room had two large windows with screens and nothing to prevent outside noise or the blowing wind. In the night, the noise from the insects and frogs outside was so loud that the manager gave us earplugs for sleeping. There was no protection from insects and we had to throw out several millipedes and other worms from the room before going to sleep. There was a warning in the room that if you saw a big black spider, it was harmless and call the manager. No nearby restaurant willing to make a delivery. So we slept without a decent supper. But we all slept well and woke up with the sweet sounds of the birds singing melodies and the wake up call from the nearby roosters. The breakfast was delicious consisting of 6 different fruits from the owner's garden. My daughter and I loved the experience but my wife threatened to walk out if we did not move and we did.

Beautiful and Peaceful PlacePosted Aug 9, 2016
This is exactly what is being advertised. A gorgeous peaceful place in the trees. This is not the Marriot (which they state on their website) and I wouldn't want it to be. Will and Barbara were lovely and accommodating in every way. They made exceptional breakfast with fresh fruit from the property. They gave incredible suggestions on what to do in the area. It was a perfect place to go. And I will DEFINITELY be returning.

Dragonfly RanchPosted Jul 7, 2016 on Hotels
This is not a traditional hotel. It is a retreat. If you are simply looking for an easy place to stay for a night and a quick start in the morning, you will not be able to give this place and its owner the attention they deserve. Dragonfly Ranch has been lovingly and artfully crafted as a haven for meditation, contemplation, and healing, complete with a colorful labyrinth. Although it's rather rustic, each room is a work of art studded with gems like these: an actual Victorian loveseat; funky, sculptural lamps; round bathtub in the bedroom; environmentally conscious, paper bag-covered floors; and many more quirky details created, collected, and curated by Barbara Moore over 42 years of ownership. This is a place that merits time and exploration. Unfortunately, we were not able to give it the attention it deserves as we were just making a quick stop on our way to the airport.

Great place to recharge, heal and renew oneselfPosted May 6, 2016
Barbara is the most caring host I've ever met. Her ranch home exudes an energy of well being and its comforts are healthy and yummy.
