Welcome to paradise ! Located on a large and lush peaceful oceanview property with easy access from the highway. Close to places and activities such as snorkeling, hiking, coffee farms and more. On 1300 ft / 400m with a pleasant cooler climate.

The Space

Aloha and welcome !
The Rainbow Plantation B&B is located on 3.5 Acres of lush tropical farmland, south of Kailua-Kona near Captain Cook and Kealakekua Bay overlooking the ocean. On our farm you are surrounded by fruit trees, parrots and peacocks !
Rooms range from $89 to $129 a night.
We have 5 comfortable rooms with private baths. With flat screen TV's and fridges. King or Queen size beds. Sleeper sofa in each room. We have a converted boat, newly renovated with a queen bed, bath, livingroom and a deck with the best oceanview !
We also have a budget room with 2 single beds with shared bath for $89 a night. A nice large tropical breakfast buffet is included and also free Wi-Fi. Rooms sleep 2 to 6 people. If more than 2 guests in a room, each additional is $15 if over 10 and in extrabed.
There is a large common kitchen where you can cook your own meals.

Sometimes this website blocks rooms, even if I have rooms left. Contact me directly if so. I may still have a room for you.

Cancelation policy:
If cancelled up to 1 month ahead, full refund.
Up to 1 week prior to arrival, 1 night is charged.
Within 1 week, 2 nights are charged.
Same day or no show, no refund. Unless I can rent it out.

Located off the highway in beautiful Kealakekua / Captain Cook, we are close to the best hiking trail, and the best snorkeling and kayaking in west Hawaii ! 10-30 minutes to beaches and swimming.
It is also convenient to explore other areas on this island such as the Volcano National park (1.5 hours), Mauna Kea mountain (1.5 hours)
Waimea (1 hour), Hilo (2 hours).

I now also offer VERY CHEAP car rentals through Budget. Unbeatable prices, ask me. If you book, you'll get the link.

We also help to book tours such as Manta Ray and dolphin snorkeling. Some are better than others... Let us book for you so you can concentrate on having fun !

E Komo Mai !

  • Christian and his family live in the middle of the paradise. The rooms are very nice and clean next to the jungle with a large view all over the ocean. Breakfast was delicious. He made the banana pancakes with own grown bananas out of the yard next to the house where he lives. Eggs from the chickens around and fresh brewed coffee, also own bread and a lot of fruits from his yard. He knows everything of the island. We had just two full days for sightseeing but with his support we saw 8 of the 10 have to see in big island in just two days. I will stay here again when I will come back to Big Island. Thanks a lot for everything!

  • The Rainbow Plantation is a lovely hideaway tucked in a mountainside of Captain Cook. The lush grounds are rich with beautiful plants, colorful flowers, chickens and Romeo, the peacock. Also the Hawaiian style outdoor communal kitchen has a rustic charm. Christian's place is secluded yet centrally located enough that moving around The Big Island was simple. Christian and his team are friendly and very accommodating. Christian offers a lot of good tips and connections for seeing and experiencing the sights and attractions. Next time I'm on The Big Island I will be back at The Rainbow Plantation.

  • Was a GREAT stay --- Awesome breakfasts which included some fun conversations with the other guests and some of the helpers. Christain was very hospitable and helpful .... May suggest arriving in the daylight if you don't have GPS... we got a bit delayed and in the dark was a little challenging

    Response from Christian:

    Thanks for the kind words ! Yes, darkness here is DARK. Light restrictions everywhere... Good for star gazing though...

  • Great location in the country-close enough to Kona if you like the touristy stuff and close to great snorkeling. Christian was super patient about answering any questions we had about things to do in the area. Breakfast is simple, yet perfectly satisfying. We stayed in the budget room which was fine, but if you can afford a little more get one of the other rooms (or the boat!) while the prices are still amazing for what you get.

  • Lovely property in a great part of the island. Near excellent snorkeling and nightlife. We met a lot of nice people while enjoying a delicious breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean. Much of the fruit was grown on the property. Also, Christian had snorkeling equipment, towels, etc. to loan us, plus was great with suggestions.

  • We stayed at Christian's for 4 nights while on the Big Island, spending 1 night in Hilo in between. The bnb had an adventurous atmosphere, with fruit growing, chickens walking around and even a peacock. The room itself was clean and private, with its own tv and bathroom. The location of the inn was in the heart of Kona's coffee farms, there was great snorkeling about a 10 minute drive away. We drove to several other beaches on the other side of the West coast as well. Christian was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and the free morning breakfasts were very convenient and very delicious.

  • We had a great stay at the peaceful tropical B & B. The bed was really comfy and the breakfast was great. I loved having the jungle kitchen to make my own food/picnic,and enjoyed the chickens and peacock on the grounds. I would definitely stay here was a fun and comfortable environment!

  • Amazing place away from all the touristy hype. Our room was beautiful: clean, stylish, comfortable, big and cozy bed. Christian and the rest of the staff were kind and relaxed. Can´t wait to go back!
