Edge of the World B&B -- Kona, Hawaii
Thanks for thinking about staying with us. My name is Kurt. Our wish is that you will feel like you are staying with friends here in Hawaii rather than being cubed up in a hotel somewhere. We take the time with all of our guests to find out their interests and help them to build as tight or loose an itinerary as they wish -- emphasizing ocean, geological, archeological, nature, scientific, cultural, and/or social activities. As you will find, there is much to do on the Big Island, or, what we call, the "real Hawaii.". A large portion of our guests are return "customers" who come back to the Edge year after year. Many people use the Edge of the World as a base from which to explore the rest of the Big Island. Others use it as a place to watch papaya grow, and that's fine too. For Kana, my Japanese wife, and me, it is a genuine pleasure to meet folks from around the U.S. and from around the world.

The Crow's Nest is on the second floor of the house and has a spectacular view of Kealakekua Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It has a private lanai, individual satellite TV, DVD, phone, private bath, refrigerator, wall to wall carpet, and king size bed. It is our most popular room and a favorite of honeymooners, artists and poets. It is $129 plus tax per night. This room may have the best view in Hawaii!
When there are more than two guests per room, there is an additional charge of $15 per person per night. In those cases we put out Japanese style futons. The maximum capacity for each room is four. Also, I do not charge extra for one night stays.
Prices include a hearty, tropical breakfast. We are also a member of the Hawaii Island Bed and Breakfast Association, and the Edge of the World has recently won the "Traveler's Choice Award" (B&B Registry), so guests can be assured of the highest standards. You'll also find A Beautiful Edge of the World recommended in the the Hawaii edition of the Lonely Planet.
We are located on a five acre working farm, surrounded by macadamia nut, coffee, papaya, avocado, and mango trees. If you're a coffee drinker, you'll be served my own 100% pure, organic Kona coffee every morning.(Don't mean to brag about our coffee, but many folks have told us it's the best they've ever tasted. We wholesale to our guests, any quantity.) If you would like to try my own noni tea, just let me know. We also grow organic bananas, pineapple, guava, papaya, sour sop, Surinam cherries, atamoya, cheromoya, oranges, limes, sapodilla, and passion fruit, some of which you will be served with breakfast, depending on the fruits in season. There are also abundant beautiful flowers scattered here and there.
Guests who stay for three days or more may use the microwave and refrigerator. We also offer free laundry service for guests who stay three days or more. We have complimentary hair dryers, beach towels and mats, limited snorkel equipment, and ice chests for our guests. Guests are welcome to use my computer for a quick check of their e-mail. We now have free WIFI throughout the house.
Please let me know if you'd like me to reserve a room.
Kurt and Kana

Very good room + people + breakfast + view of course. I really enjoyed the balcony to look at the sunset.
Many thanks for your kind review, Eric. It was a pleasure meeting you. You asked me about the fruits you had at breakfast.
-papaya with Tahitian lime
-sapote blanco (the green outside/white inside fruit you said reminded you of pear)
-sour sop (green outside with fairly large black seeds)
-dwarf Williams bananas
-Surinam cherries (red, pumpkin shaped, small)
All of our fruit is organic and, as I mentioned, grown here on the farm. Glad you enjoyed them.
We had a very nice time in the Crow's Nest. Kurt let us borrow snorkeling equipment, which was very nice to explore the nearby reefs. Breakfast was delicious and we had great company! The cats were also very friendly and the views great! Wish we could have stayed longer.
