A for Amazing

5 on November 13, 2013

Aloha all. The best part about reading all the reviews previously published is, now that I've stayed here for 3 nights, is that every compliment, description and accolade is absolutely true and I couldn't agree more with them. I live on Oahu so for me it was just a long weekend getaway. Well I got away and then some. Thanks so much to all the staff, you all define what hospitality is all about. I'll be back! Karl

Innkeeper Response
Mahalo nui loa for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay and look forward to welcoming you home soon. A hui hou, Kat & your Holualoa Inn Ohana

Outstanding ratings don't quite do the Holualoa Inn justice. There is a most definite WOW factor from the first turn into the driveway (thus, the "wow" rating option used on their own internal survey). Every aspect from Kat's greeting with the cold washclothes and freshly squeezed liliquoi juice to Crystal's amazing breakfasts; 4 mornings, each one a unique masterpiece of presentation and flavor. The art/furniture/location/staff made our stay most memorable. (ps, if the Gardenia room is available, it's well worth the additional splurge. The views are spectacular!!) cs

Innkeeper Response
Driving down the driveway does create a wonderful impression and memory. Our Gardenia Suite is a spectacular room with incredible views. Add delicious breakfasts, an attentive staff and you are living the good life. Mahalo for your “WOW” comments. Happy New Year and we hope you come back "home" soon!

Another World

5 on June 14, 2012

The inn is more beautiful in person than pictures can express. There is a feeling of being off the beaten path and in another world. I loved the small and intimate feel. The food is wonderful, the views incredible, the sounds peaceful. I could go on in much detail....but you should go and experience it yourself....I don't want to spoil the surprise. We enjoyed walking around and looking at all the flowers, the coffee, the fruit orchard, etc. and just relaxing in the surroundings. This was the perfect setting for our wedding. Thanks to everyone at the inn for making our stay memorable.....this is the most unique/best place we have ever stayed!

Innkeeper Response
Mahalo for your wonderful review. It was our pleasure to be a part of your beautiful wedding here at the Inn, to help create a magical memory. We always enjoy when our guests explore our gardens, so mahalo for sharing your experience with others. We hope to welcome you home soon, perhaps on your first anniversary.

Beautiful site for a wedding!

5 on April 26, 2012

We held our daughter's wedding at the Inn as we are so in love with this place! Whether you want a luxurious get away or want a wedding venue, this is the place in Kona. It's tucked away above the city where it's cool and peaceful. Every detail is perfect down to the bed linens! Love the staff and everything about the Inn. Special thanks to Noe who helped make our event perfect in every way!

Innkeeper Response
Rhonda, the feeling of love is mutual. We were so honored you chose the Inn for Kelly and Patrick’s wedding. You and your family are the ultimate guests, so fun and full of energy. We loved your comment, “Every detail is perfect down to the bed linens!” Those Comphy sheets are incredible! The entire Team at the Inn sends its warmest “ALOHA.” We can’t wait to see you all back “home” again soon !!! Mahalo Nui Loa, Noelani Ubaldo

Paradise Found

4.4 on April 14, 2012

Partner & I stayed here for three nights at the end of our Big Island vacation. We had previously stayed here five years ago and were anxious to go back. It is a paradise, but a wee bit over our budget (thus only three night stay). Must save more money for longer stay next time. Staff was outstanding (hey Kat!!) and breakfast wonderful. Ahhh....memories of Kona coffee overlooking the coast. Mahalo!

Innkeeper Response
We love when our guests become repeat guests. We agree the Inn “is a paradise.” Kat and the rest of the staff are excellent at providing incredible customer service combined with a warm Aloha Spirit. We look forward to spoiling you when you come back “home” again! Mahalo Nui Loa, Noelani

Elegant perfection in the real Hawaii.

5 on April 07, 2012

This place was exquisite. A gorgeous house, elegantly appointed, immaculately clean. Every detail is thought out for guest convenience. The staff is helpful, friendly and talkative, but never imposing. Delicious breakfast, very generous. The property looks down from a lofty height to Kona Town and the ocean and is surrounded by farmland and orchards, in the midst of charming Holualoa, an artist haven. Yet it is only minutes from great beach activity sites. The most comfortable bed I've ever experienced. I can't wait to go back!


5 on February 06, 2012

The only sad thing about the Holualoa Inn is that we have to leave today. I'm crying! We've traveled all over the world in the past 30 years and stayed in many lovely places but the Holualoa Inn is truly outstanding. There is absolutely nothing that owners and staff have not thought of to make their guest experience the best. The inn itself is a glorious retreat filled with comfortable furniture and glorious flowers and every comfort you could hope for. Dreamy beds and linens grace spacious rooms filled with art and elegant island decor and "love notes" from the staff. From their kitchen and Chef Brian come delectable breakfasts and afternoon treats. Leave yourself plenty of time on your vacation to the island of Hawaii to just be here, sit and absorb, read a book, watch the sunset, enjoy the balm of the warm breezes, get a massage outside in the cabana, refresh in the pool, walk among the coffee and banana and citrus trees. In the mean time, we will dream of coming back.

Innkeeper Response
Mahalo for your specific and wonderfully written comments. It’s clear you get what the Inn is all about. The staff’s aloha spirit, the “dreamy beds and linens,” the incredible 30 acres, the coffee and fruit trees, the “delectable breakfast and afternoon treats,” massages, and so much more, all woven together to create a special experience at your “home” away from home. We hope your “dream of coming back” turns into reality very soon! Mahalo Nui Loa, Noelani

Great retreat

4.6 on December 28, 2011

Great retreat; very helpful staff; best breakfast in Hawaii

Innkeeper Response
Mahalo for your positive review. We agree, Chef Brian makes the best breakfasts in town. We also think the Inn’s orchard of over 5,100 coffee trees produces the best Kona coffee in town! Mahalo and Aloha, Noe

Holualoa Inn B & B is stupendous

5 on October 21, 2011

The most wonderful B&B my husband Ron & I have ever stayed in

A wonderful place to call home

5 on August 17, 2011

As soon as my husband and I drove down the private driveway to the Holualoa Inn, I knew we were home. The property is landscaped so beautifully, and the house itself is a sight that you have to see in person. Kathryn greeted us with cold washcloths and freshly squeezed juice. This was the beginning of the great attention the Innkeepers will give you. (They will, if you let them, spoil you rotten!) Kathryn gave us a wonderful tour of the home and encouraged us to explore the property grounds. We stayed in the Gardenia Suite and absolutely loved it. The sitting room gives you beautiful views of the Kona Coast; the private balcony gives you views of the white pineapple garden and the hale luana (massage pavilion). Check out the gardens for bananas, avocados, coffee trees, ancient trails and much more. Also, don't miss the labyrinth and the peace you will feel there. Wait till you see and taste the breakfasts! The fruits and juices are so fresh; the hot meal absolutely fabulous. My favorite was the Hawaiian toast stuffed with lilikoi cream cheese, topped with homemade papaya marmalade and drizzled with homemade lilikoi syrup. I mentioned earlier that the Innkeepers can spoil you rotten. Let them! Need a dinner or lunch reservation? They can do that for you plus get you a great table. Want to bring lunch to the beach or have a private dinner at the Inn? Chef Brian can prepare that for you for a reasonable price. My only regret at the Holualoa Inn was not staying there longer while we were on the Big Island. I'm looking forward to returning home.

Innkeeper Response
Nothing makes us happier than when you tell us you felt at “home.” Your beautiful review reads like a tantalizing brochure. We are thrilled to know you were able to enjoy all the wonderful experiences the Inn has to offer. The 30 acres do provide for some incredible adventures, and it all starts with the beautiful driveway. Kathyrn, Brian, and the rest of the staff are very special and love to share the “aloha” spirit. We look forward to you returning “home” very soon so we can spoil you again and again and again !!!
