Quaint, gay-owned B&B with luxurious amenities.
This B&B is the perfect alternative to a hotel, offering private beach access, a heated pool, large sun deck, and it's within walking/biking distance to great restaurants, bars, and shops. Oh yeah, and it's nudist friendly!

ButchKennedy gave this placeHighgly recommend Gay Hawaii B&B & Kalapana, HawaiiVery comfortable, clean, and great value! The Kalapana area is like 'real' Hawaii. Wed and Fri nights at Uncle's Awa Bar are amazing. Several hundred people, live music (including Hawaiian slack key), local food vendors, brewed Kambucha (try the Lavander Elderberry). Hot food varieties from Thai, vegan, BBQ ribs, wood fire pizza, local baked goods, banana pie, green papaya salad. Incredible selection. Very festival like atmosphere. Beer, wine, jello shooters, and Awa (muscle relaxant from pounded plant root) available. Try the Awa. Not fermented and doesn't make you 'drunk' but relaxes your muscles. Hard to describe, but a must do experience. Walk from Gay Hawaii B&B (parking is scarce and some parking is on the lava flow which covered the bay in 1991). The lava wasn't flowing, but locals said that when it is flowing down the hillside and into the ocean you can see the red glow from Gay Hawaii B&B. Will definitely come back to see the lava sometime. Loved the free wifi and having cell phone service at Gay Hawaii B&B. (Many places in the area do NOT have cell service). Kehena Beach with clothing optional sunning and dolphins, the warm ponds, and the painted church which is walking distance from GHBB, were all highlights. And the fresh organic avocados, lemons, and lilikoi from the property had amazing flavor even for someone like me who isn't particularly a health nut. Clean air, fresh organic fruit, Hawaii culture & music, clean, comfortable bed, great outdoor shower, and the most amazing warm water massage (AquaNirvana). Will definitely be back to Gay Hawaii B&B!!!

ilike2travel gave this placeGreat Place to RelaxIt was a nice and clean rental house. If you want a place to hear lots of chirpin (whatevers) put you to sleep after heading up to the night I had fun and you will too. The owner goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. He even patched me up with bandages on my last day there! (Little accident with a rock) The other review is very accurate and more detailed but I would say this is a very nice place to stay, I went for 9 days!
SavvyGayTraveler gave this placeThe BEST weekend and weekly rates on Big Island!If you ask for the "Gay Travel Discount" you will get the best weekly rate in the area!!! Very clean and comfortable! Private access to secluded black sand beach. Walk to Wed Farmer's Market at Uncle Robert's Awa Bar. Live Hawaiian Music, handsome local guys to check out. Local Arts and great variety of food. Kehena Beach can be a great place to skinnydip with dolphins, meet local gay folks, and tan your buns! Guests at Gay Hawaii Guest House get a discount on table Massage and warm water massage (Watsu and Aqua Nirvana). at Big Island Massage & Watsu. Go for "The Works" 45min of warm water massage followed by 45 min of table massage.... phenomenal!!! Loved sunning naked on the outdoor deck at Gay Hawaii Guest House..... You can often see the active hot lava on the hillside at night. And the milky way is amazing. Even saw shooting stars!!! BEST RATE, BEST LOCATION, MUST do Massage!First to Review
