The Waianuhea is a secluded gem with beautiful rooms and delicious breakfasts made individually by Randy. She's kind and knowledgeable about the area. She and her staff made us feel at home and we look forward to visiting again in the future.
This place was recommended by another B&B and we were not disappointed. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable room and exceptional public areas. Pre dinner drinks and snacks were a great chance to meet fellow travellers. Only downside was Internet coverage and that was the fault of the service provider, not the B&B.
The place is in a lovely sunny location on 7.5 acres. It was great to stay in an off-grid house. We did not have to make any changes in our routine. The gardens are great and the breakfast is the best! The appetizers and afternoon wine was nicely done. The staff treats you wonderfully.
Stayed with my husband and was his first time in a B&B. Waianuhea rivaled the service of any 5 star hotel. The beds and rooms were so cozy it was hard to get out in the morning to go have the most delicious and beautiful breakfast. The complimentary evening wine and pupu hour was fabulous with delicious food. The extra amenities of the extensive DVD library, complimentary slippers, cozy robes and warm fire were wonderful touches. The location is so romantic and really shows you a different side of Hawaii. I love that they are very eco conscious. We will definitely stay here again any chance we get since we live on the Big Island.
My wife and I have stayed at Waianuhea seven times now and, needless to say, we love the place. It is set apart, peaceful and tranquil, well off the beaten tourist tract, in the quiet upland forests and farmlands of the the Hamakua district of the Big Island. The property is nicely landscaped with tropical flowers, a hot tub, extensive grounds, and a pond. The inn itself is gorgeous inside with wood floors, original art on the walls, fresh flowers everywhere, Balinese statues, and a spacious and well-appointed great room where evening hors d'oeuvres and wine are served at 5 PM. Both the hors d'oeuvres and the gourmet 3 course breakfast in the morning are filling and absolutely delicious. There being only 4 guest rooms, it is never crowded, never impersonal, and the staff seem more like helpful friends than employees. It is a wonderful place to kick back and relax and very romantic for couples. We are always excited to arrive there and sad to leave. George Wilson
