We loved it.

5 on December 06, 2017

Exactly what we wanted. A good space, close to Kona, but nearer to the country. We stayed 2 nights and had a perfect time.

Wonderful stay

We enjoyed our two night stay. Breakfasts on the lanai were delicious home cooked egg creations with muffins, fruit, juice, tea and coffee. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. They gave us advice on where to go snorkeling and shared stories.

Our stay in Hale-Hoola

4.2 on September 03, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were great and the view and night sounds on the lanai wonderful. The breakfasts were very tasty and varied too. Our hosts gave us plenty of information and the lending of beach towels and snorkelling masks was greatly appreciated.

Great place to stay while visiting Big Island

My husband and I spent a few days on the east side and a few days on the west side of Big Island. While visiting the west side we stayed at Hale Hoola and it was great. The place is clean and it has everything you need to enjoy your time in Hawaii. Easy to find, clean and with amazing sunset views! The hosts were GREAT and let us borrow snorkel gear as well as beach towels. They know the area so you can ask for restaurants or best places to see turtles... Their breakfast was outstanding! I really enjoyed having breakfast chatting with them and other guests. We will definitely be back if we visit the west side again. Mahalo, Alba

Excellent stay

This B &B had everything we wanted. Hosts Carl and Elma went above and beyond what was expected. Enjoyed breakfast on the lanai. Just wish we had booked more than 2 nights.

Great Budget Option

4.4 on May 30, 2016

This BnB was perfect for us, because we wanted to spend our time out sight seeing and didn't want or need a bunch of extra amenities. The price was great, the views from the upstairs deck where breakfast was served were beautiful, breakfast was tastey, and the hosts were warm and thoughtful.

Great stay

We stayed at Hale Hoola for 2 nights. The room was very clean and confortable. We particularly appreciated the patio with a beautiful viiew on the ocean. Carl and Elma have been good hosts and the breakfast was excellent. Unfortunatly the weather was not good ....

new hosts doing excellent job

4.0 on February 11, 2016

Our hosts provided varied and high quality breakfasts. The rooms had a private lanai to view the wild pigs and cattle roaming around

Innkeeper Response
From our property one can hear the surf: But between is Hawaiian Bishop Kamehameha Heritage Land and there are wild cattle and pigs on it, as well as turkeys, goats, birds of all types. There is a sturdy fence. But we get the sounds of old Hawaii and It fits since we are in Coffee Country. Kailua-Kona Town is great with it's Neon and night life. Many people stay here as a base camp to explore the Island and venture to town for Urban excitement but return to watch the sunset and relax: then in the morning,fresh brewed local Kona coffee and a wonderful breakfast. So It is a matter of preference. We welcome all. Aloha; Carl and Elma D.
