About Christian

Aloha ! I'm the new owner since March 2012 of this B&B that's been in business since 1995. Well established and very popular... So stop by and feel at home and relaxed on your trip !

Christian

Christian purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Christian chose Kona Coast

It's awesome ! I lived 10 years in crowded Honolulu... Then I move here.

Its peaceful and quiet here. Lots of fruit grow here. Close to swimming. Perfect cooler climate. Need I say more...

What makes this cottage unique

A relaxed tropical feeling will embrace you in our beautiful garden with ocean view, fruits and macadamia nuts for you to pick and eat, and close to hiking and swimming if you want to be active.

Great, low-key getaway in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Christian and the staff were super friendly, helpful, and they run a really nice operation. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms were clean and well equipped, and the breakfast was simple and tasty. We'll be back!

Beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful setting. My favorite thing was the outdoor kitchen. Christian and the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. We loved having breakfast with everyone and chatting about trips and adventures. We just wish we could have stayed longer.

Cute and friendly right off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Great B&B that is just far enough away from the hustle of all the resorts and closer to some of the best hiking and snorkeling on the Kona side. The owners were great and very helpful with things to do and places to see. Would def go back

Great B&B

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in Peacock and Fern for a few days in December. The owner was really nice and helpful for activities. The breakfast was great, especially his delicious banana pancakes! Ideal location for visiting captain cook monument and snorkeling.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Rainbow B&B - after a few days at Wikiki it was the perfect antidote to the rush and bustle - being a haven of quite and calm amongst the rainforest. And super friendly host and the opportunity to mix with other guests and hear their stories. Made for a great stay. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks ! We are constantly working on improving this place and ourselves. Next up is building a vegetable garden so we all can enjoy what we grow here more than fruits. Also, I'll give a 10% returner rebate, so please come visit us again ! Christian & team
