Twice Charmed

5 on July 30, 2015

Last week was my second stay at Hale Maluhia. My daughter and I had a great stay in 2008, that definitely recommended me to return. And this time was equally great. I will certainly return on my next vista too. The location on the mountain slope gets one a bit out of the hustle and bustle of Kona, yet close enough that one can zip into town within 10 min. Also, very easy access to all the sights and experiences of the Kona coast. The breakfast layout is the most professionally hosted and extensive of any B&B I stayed at. They emphasize fresh picked produce, fresh baked breads and eggs. On the dining porch there are great views of the mountain environment, birds all about. The rooms were impeccable. I would recommend, for the AM or dusk walkers, the level stretch of road about 1/2 down on Hualalai Rd, where it meets Hienaloli Rd; (walk along Hienaloli north; park at intersection). It's a gentle stroll, with jungly views.


A place of paradise!!!

C’est un coin de paradis. Je ne pouvais pas espérer mieux. La maison est située en hauteur, dans une quasi jungle. Tout est là. Les oiseaux nous réveillent le matin, le bruit de la jungle nous berce la nuit. Le personnel est d’une amabilité, sympathie, serviabilité et éducation exemplaire. Le personnel de cette maison est très humain. J’ai apprécié les gens et le lieu et je retournerai volontiers. Mon séjour à durée 3 nuits (par manque de disponibilité des chambres). Les chambres étaient prises. Je suis resté du 11 au 14 avril 2015. Les chambres sont propres, les salles de bain aussi, bref je n’ai aucun mauvais commentaire. Tout était beau dans ce lieu de paradis qui m’a surpris. Pour moi, tout était parfait. Le parking est inclus et le petit déjeuner aussi. C’est un buffet ou j’ai rarement gouté à des aliments aussi frais que ça. De plus, il se donne sur une véranda qui donne une vue agréable sur la nature et les oiseaux qui l’occupent. Je recommande vivement ce lieu. Si vous voulez fuir la ville, jouir d’un endroit de paix, de beauté et d’humanité, c’est la place ou aller. Merci à tout le personnel pour votre sympathie et humanité. Note totale !!! bravo et bonne continuation. Je vous remercie! abdel

Tranquility in Paradise

4.8 on September 30, 2014

My husband and I came across Hale Maluhia while searching for the ideal Bed and Breakfast. We couldn't have located a more perfect residence for our 4 day Kona stay. "House of Peace" is the perfect name for this beautiful home. Surrounded by foilage, Birds of Paradise, a breakfast garden to enjoy in the morning (or anytime) filled with native birds and a waterfall as well as caring staff and owners - a traveler is bound to decompress from the Mainland and experience the spirit of aloha in this wonderful place. Our breakfasts were just awesome - a grand array of hawaiian fruits, delectable homemade breads and other goodies complemented the 'make your own' omelettes and waffles. And located in near proximetry to coffee plantations, the coffee is just the BEST!! We were joined on 3 of the mornings by a gecko who shared a piece of papya with us!! Our room was very comfortable, and the staff went out of their way to meet our needs and make us feel at home including being serenaded by beautiful piano music during breakfast. There is a peace here that almost defies explanation. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to the Big Island, we will be certain to stay again. John and Kathy Raimondi

Real Hospitality: Having read the most recent review before this one, I wonder if we stayed at the same place! We found it to be very relaxing, comfortable and clean. As far as insects, there were ants but it's a tropical island and that is to be expected. Our hosts were very outgoing and friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. The breakfasts were incredible. We would definitly recommend this place to everyone and stay here again should our travels take us back.


A Slice of Paradise

5 on August 15, 2011

We highly recommend this place if you are looking for a beautiful, quiet, traditional inn. They were very accomodating to every request and looked after our every need, their motto was, "Hey, you're on vacation, relax!" The breakfasts were wonderful with a wide variety of fresh fruits, homemade breads, and make your own omelet bar. This place is surrounded by a wide variety of exotic plants, birds, and flowering trees, very lovely. We enjoyed sitting in the jacuzzi at night and listening to the sounds of the tree frogs chirping. If you are used to a modern resort atmosphere, this place may not be for you, but if you want a slice a paradise, this is the place!


A truly peaceful retreat

5 on June 21, 2011

As we entered our bungalow we were enveloped by the peaceful comfort of serenity the suite offered. The song birds, the view, the service and food far exceeded our expectations. The serenade of frogs were a beautiful lullaby to the end of our day. Skip the boxy rooms of the busy hotels for a truly peaceful retreat experience.


Lovely 3 nights in Kona

3.8 on January 15, 2011

We stayed in this B&B for 3 nights on our honeymoon. The B&B served our purposes very well, being close to Kona in a lovely peaceful area in the coffee country. The service was friendly and the breakfast and room had everything we wished for and more. The B&B had good facilities for everyone to use. Special thanks to Monica for superb coffee and the delicious surprice elements at breakfast!


Just wow!

Friendly hosts, nice rooms and houses, quite and peaceful environment...we love it and would like to recommend it to everybody who does not want to stay in a big anonymous hotel...this place is heaven! Thank you for the nice time although we could not really appreciate everything because of our limited time. Thanks from Germany Bille and Roman


Truly a House of Peace

4.8 on April 28, 2010

My wife and I spent our first wedding anniversary on the Big Island and stayed at this most delightful B & B which was truly a “House of Peace” for us. Owners Ken & Sue Smith were most accommodating extending a discount for our longer stay. Inn Keepers, Adam & Pam Mather (along with precious little 5 yr old Jade) went above and beyond to make our stay most enjoyable. From providing us with home made cracked wheat bread along with their breakfast self-serve buffet to supplying us with water & beach equipment, they served us royally. We will not forget them! This well-equipped B & B is nestled up on the mountain side in the midst of a lush green landscape. It has the feel of being built in the old-style Hawaiian fashion almost like the “Swiss-Family Robinson” home. Although it has a sense of being secluded, it is in fact very accessible to all points of interest. With all of the amenities you could ask for including a covered hot tub, internet access and large screen TV’s with movies, we could not have asked for more. This will certainly be our point of destination and stay the next time we return to the Big Island! It is well-worth your stay! Don & Bonnie
