About This Listing

I completely loved my stay with Kurt and bis family! The room was delightful, clean, and spacious. The sunset view from the wrap-around porch was stunning. I felt so pleasantly nurtured by the fresh fruit and coffee breakfast grown right their farm.

Response from Kurt:

Aloha Pia and Raffael,

Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure hosting you. Thanks also for the chance to explain the tax situation in Hawaii. People staying less than 30 days in Hawaii, whether at a hotel, inn, B&B, or any other place where they pay for the stay are required by state law to pay taxes presently set at 13.41%. It's ugly, I know, and we can only hope that the funds are used for good purpose, like maintaining and improving the roads, county and state parks, etc. While Hawaii's rate is high, it is in line with taxes paid in most European countries where value added taxes and city taxes are added to the bill, and slightly less than taxes in many of the U.S. states.

But you are absolutely right, this tax is something that potential guests should know about prior to making a booking. In the case of this agency, they do not indicate at the top of the page (where price is shown) if tax is included in the price quote or not, despite my suggestion that they do. To find this information one must dig into the website to find the answer or, alternatively, send the prospective host a message to ask if there are any additional fees.

Although a host's favorite booking is a direct booking, I like AirB&B because the comission paid to them by hosts is considerably less than the other major agencies and because they've almost always been quite helpful in answering questions and making useful suggestions. I also like them because they generally offer relatively good value for travelers and provide access to a different kind of experience for travelers where they have access to a more personalized and informative experience relative to staying in a hotel. In the end, happy travelers make happy hosts. Still, taxes due is something that should be made quite clear, in advance, to guests. Best wishes, Kurt

Response from Kurt:

Thank you, Iris, for the glowing review. Please know that the feeling was mutual. We feel absolutely lucky to have wonderful guests like you stay with us. I wish we'd had more time to talk about your life in Alaska, but such is the nature of time when on vacation (and time for a farmer). Only thing I can say is, come again and stay longer ! Best wishes to you and your very cool husband--Kurt, Kana and Jenna P.S. The chickens are wild. PPS -- It's a whole lot easier to trust people than not. In our 15 years running he B&B, we've never, ever been slighted.
