The perfect Get Away BnB.
Posted Jan 1, 2016
The Mango Sunset Bed and Breakfast experience was wonderful for both my wife and myself. Arriving from Kona airport, you only need to drive up the side of the mountain about 10-15 minutes and you're in the midst of an amazing array of coffee plants and fruit trees. We were greeted by Abby, the farm's dog and Inky, one of the cats.
The owner and proprietor, Hans was there to explain the common area, wifi and bedroom. He was a very friendly and open individual and it was clear that he would look after us during our stay. Our bedroom was freshly made with a wonderful breeze coming in from the patio that has a lovely ocean view (you can see the airport, but can't hear the planes). The bathroom was also very clean with fresh towels ready to go.
My wife and I enjoyed the morning breakfasts with the other guests and Hans and his wife Marsha very much. Always freshly made local food with an Hawaiian twist. We had the opportunity to use the grill outside to make some dinner as well. Supermarkets and the Farmers Market are a 15 minute drive down towards Kona. From the B&B, we had easy driving access to the whole island. Go left from the farm and you head towards the South Kona coast (great snorkeling areas) and go right and you can hit the North of the island, or take the Saddle Road East towards Hilo.
Overall we are very pleased and happy with our experience on the Lyman Coffee Farm. The 'WOOFER' volunteers that were there to help also had a hand in our welcome.
