ABOUT LILIKOI INN
About Your Hosts
Shai and Trina are originally from the San Francisco Bay Area where they ran a bustling Cafe and Catering company for over 25 years. Upon their move to Hawaii's 'Big Island', they discovered the tranquil artist's village of Holualoa, nestled just above the larger town of Kailua-Kona. With perfect weather and serene tropical surroundings, they knew that it was unfair to keep their new home all to themselves, so they look forward to welcoming you with a cup of Kona coffee - grown just outside your door!
Shai is a trained chef with a broad range of culinary talent. Having lived and traveled in Brazil, Israel and Thailand, Shai combines his love of food from these regions with his creativity, to prepare sumptuous daily breakfasts, gourmet dinners or picnic lunches fit for any occasion - a very special treat, so let him know if you're interested while you're here.
Along with food, Trina & Shai have a passion for languages. Shai speaks five and Trina teaches part time language classes in Spanish, Hebrew, French, and English. Along with ensuring smooth operations and comfort at the Inn, Trina is often accompanied by her quiet and loving dog, Teddy. So if you miss your pet while you're away, we've got you covered.
"We welcome you to our home and look forward to sharing it with you!" –Trina & Shai

on three unspoiled acres of lush Kona Coffee Country on the west side
of Hawaii's 'Big Island'. All of our rooms come complete with a private
bathroom, wireless Internet access, cable television, relaxing decor,
a private entrance and a full breakfast. Each room also comes with access

the world-famous Kona Coast. Additionally, the property has an abundance
of lilikoi (the Hawaiian word for passion fruit), which guests are welcome
From the Kona International airport, go south on 19 towards
Kailua-Kona, Turn left before town at Hina Lani. Go up the hill to the very end, make a
right turn and go about 100 yards until you see the sign for Holualoa and make a
left turn. This is now Mamalahoa Highway or route 180.
You will be driving on Mamalahoa Highway for about 10 minutes and the mile markers
will be counting down. Pass the mile marker 7 and a small general store (The
Komo Store) on the right hand side. Just past the store is a large Silver
Oak Tree and opposite that tree, on the left, is our road and sign. If you see
the street “Keopu Mauka” or mile marker 6 then you have gone too
far. Once you turn left on to our road (It is one lane, so please go slowly)
you will go up the hill and pass two houses. We are the third house on the left.
E Komo Mai – Welcome!
