Aloha, We are located at the end of Haunani Road, thus our name. We built our home on 6.5 acres of rainforest pasture land in 1989,just a baby compared to the historic homes here in the village; but it has settled into it`s own niche since then. We are sure the peace and tranquility that we enjoy will be yours too. If it`s activity you desire, the nearby Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park offers opportunities for hiking, biking, and exploring. There is also the Volcano Art Gallery and the Jaggar Museum to visit. There are great nearby restaurants from which you can choose. In the morning we serve a light continental breakfast,no eggs and bacon here but lots of seconds if you desire. We are Christian owned and operated. Hele mai, come. ****Please call Innkeeper at least 24 hours before check in if you plan to arrive after 6:00 p.m! Please be advised that we will not accept guest after 9 PM in consideration of our other guests who might be sleeping. Thank you.****

The End of The Road Bed and Breakfast is an awesome place to stay. Our room was immaculate and breakfast was wonderful. Seconds were offered. Lani and Ray are great hosts. Our conversations with them will be treasured. We highly recommend staying here.
Thank you so much for your kind remarks! All the best.

End of the Road is about 2 miles off the main road (actually at the very end of the road) and about 8-10 minutes from Volcanoes National Park (very convenient for visiting the park, particularly if you're returning at night to see the lava). My GPS took us to a run down house with barking dogs, but then we realized we had to travel a little further down the road (a bit hidden from the dog house, so it seems like it could be the end of the road at first). You'll know that you're there when you get to a livestock looking gate (you might have to call to have it opened when you get there, but you'll get a handheld device that opens the gate at check-in). The house doesn't look like much from the outside, accommodations are basic, but it was cozy and immaculately clean. There are only two rooms. One has an in-room bathroom and our room had a bathroom down the hall, but was private. I loved the heated blanket (separate controls for each side of the bed!), which was great for the cool nights in Volcano. Loni was a little brisk the first night (as others have noted), but in the morning she was very friendly and made us a simple breakfast (Eggo brand waffles, Hawaiian Maid passionfruit juice, english muffins, and a delicious papaya). Also, just an FYI--apparently check-in is from 3pm to 6pm (unless you contact them to make different arrangements), but this information wasn't in our confirmation. We just happened to arrive within those hours, but the other couple staying at the B&B didn't know that and arrived late at night. Also, there were locks on the bedroom doors when we were there, which I guess was not always the case according to prior reviews.

Lani and Ray were great hosts. Our room was immaculately clean and comfortable with an on suite bathroom, Lani recently installed locks on the room doors so you can lock your room while you are out. Breakfast was OK with choice of waffle or banana bread, fresh papaya or juice and tea or coffee. Seconds were offered. Location was extremely convenient to entrance of Volcano National Park. If we return to Volcano we will try to stay at The End of the Road B&B again.
Thank you so much for the kind review and for the pleasure of hosting you! All the best!

This is a lovely place for respite and relief, rural in nature and beautiful. The home is comfortable and welcoming, as are the owners, Lani and Ray. Breakfast is simple, but plentiful. The rooms are tidy, clean and well appointed. With a quick 10 minute drive, one can be at the volcano awed in its majesty and power. There were four of us on this trip and we would each return there should the moment come around.

The owners were friendly and super helpful in educating us about choices, making recommendations, helping with reservations, etc. The house is truly at the end of the road, so very secure, private, and quiet. We chatted at length after breakfast. Highly recommended.

I just came back from a great vacation experience in Hawaii..If you appreciate a quiet relaxing evening to sleep after the day's busy activity .. this B&B has just what you need...The owners are quite charming and a good source for places to visit on the Big Island...The nights are cooler than Hilo because the property is above 3500 feet sea level...I rented the bedroom that had its own bathroom..The rooms were neat and clean and the continental breakfast was more than sufficient to start your day..It's located just minutes away from the Volcano National Park entrance.. a big Mahalo to Ray & Lani for making me and my autistic son feel at home..away from home...I almost forgot to mention this...The price they charge is super reasonable!

I stayed here for two nights with my wife while visiting Volcanoes National Park and thought it was a well-maintained and very friendly B&B. The hostess, Lani, was very courteous and made us feel at home. There was a small breakfast served at 07:30 each morning and the place was quiet and comfortable. It met my expectations and seemed to be a great value for the two nights we stayed. Loud, rowdy, and restless travelers will want to look somewhere else, but for anyone looking for an affordable and quiet place to get some rest this is the place. As most of the visiting guests are here to see the park, there is no problem with coming or going in the later hours for those wanting to see the volcnoes at night. Lani is full of advie on the food and sight-seeing options in the locale so be sure to ask for advice if you need it. Great place!

We spent a peaceful night in Kili's room. The room is spacious and has a private bathroom. The single bed could use a new mattress. The host and hostess are lovely people who made us feel welcome in their home.

My wife and my stay here was very mixed. When we first arrived we were bombarded with rules and limitations, as well as the female owner's condescending comments. We wanted to do a hike but she strongly suggested we not go saying even an adult could get lost. What the hell? I'm 27 and my wife is 28. Every time we walked around it felt like we were on eggshells, even the kitchen they lock. We absolutely did not feel like guests most of the time we were there. The breakfast consisted of stale english muffins, mediocre banana bread, a small piece of pineapple and a beverage. Come on, you guys could do much better. That said, the rooms were clean and the male counterpart is a pastor who was more open and friendly. I personally won't return, as I want to be welcomed and comfortable at the places I stay on vacation.

Hilo, Hawaii (Big) Island, HI (ITO) 35 miles
From Hilo: As you exit the Hilo airport, the first large intersection that you'll come to is Highway 11. Turn left at the light. As you travel away from Hilo, south, on the Highway 11, look for the 26 mile marker (it will take you approximately 35 minutes). Then watch for a large sign on the right side of the highway that says Haunani Road. Turn right off of Highway 11, on to Haunani Road. From that point, stay on Haunani Road. It is approximately 1.7 miles from the highway. At the end of the road to the right, you will see our B & B sign and our 250 ft driveway. The home is white with a green metal roof, and is sitting in the middle of a pasture. Directions from Kona to Volcano South Point route: As you drive away from Kona stay on Hwy 11 going south. It will take through towns like Captain Cook and Kealakekua. The southern most town is named Na'alehu. About an hour after Na'alehu, you'll enter the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park property (they'll be a sign on the right side of the road). Shortly after that, you'll drive past the National Park entrance (it will be on the right). Look for the 27 mile marker. After you pass that sign, look for a street intersection marker with a small yellow sign that says Haunani Road. The sign will be on the right side of the road. After the 27 mile marker, turn left off of Highway 11 on to Haunani Road. From that point, stay on Haunani Road (it has sections where it becomes one lane) for approximately 1.7 miles. The road will lead off to the right into our 250 ft driveway. The house has a green metal roof, and is sitting in the middle of a pasture.
