"Thank you so much for welcoming us into the most beautiful accommodation on the island! The house, yourselves, and the setting was so special. Love it! Coming back soon."

– Fiona, Australia

"Ka’awa Loa Plantation has changed my life. The warm hosts, fresh air, and lush tropical surroundings have acted as a catalyst towards rejuvenating not only my work ethic, but my general happiness. During my month stay at Ka’awa Loa, my boyfriend proposed in an extremely romantic and classically Hawaiian way. It is an amazing experience to start planning the rest of your life from a vantage point that encompasses the earth’s natural beauty. I highly recommend that others make it a priority to take advantage of these comfortable and peaceful surroundings."

We came for 2 days and stayed for 7, abandoning other travel plans after having been seduced by the graciousness, wonderful warmth and joyful spirits of Ka’awa Loa, Michael, and Greg. Surrounded by the beauty and sounds of nature at every turn, we relaxed into the lovely energy of this very special place. Without a doubt, we will return, looking forward to the time when we can continue our friendship in person with these wonderful guys and their bit of heaven. Mahalo to you both for sharing your paradise with us!
