Delightful Stay

We were very impressed by the spaciousness and comfort of the Banyan Cottage. The country inn is up the "hill" from Kona which we fully appreciated. The hosts were pleasant and accommodating. All the guests loved the setting and the variety of birds that came to the feeder. The rooster liked to crow not just at sunrise but we all liked the "out in the country" feel. We highly recommend to any traveler who prefers a lovingly restored inn.

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad you loved the Banyan Cottage, the grounds and the birds! It was our pleasure to serve you.

September 2017 Our week's stay at Hale Maluhia Country Inn was over all too soon. We loved the beauty and serenity of "The House of Peace" as it is aptly named. Miriam and Dave are very warm and welcoming Hosts. Miriam prepares wonderful breakfasts of fresh fruits, pastries, home baked breads and all the fixings to make omelettes and waffles. Truly, this is a special place to stay!..Rosemary and Keith Gray

Beautiful place to stay for our 2 week 15 year Anniversary! Central to everything Kona, the breakfast buffet every day was fantastic! The new hosts were very gracious .... we started out as guests and ended up family :)....looking forward to our next visit...we won't stay anywhere else....Paul and Debbie from Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Beautiful and Peace full of Aloha!

This is a beautiful, tropical setting and the staff are welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is lovely with fresh local foods and always fresh baked bread. One truly feels in paradise yet at home. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Marcy

Miriam and I absolutely love this place. The beauty of the property and the promise of an omelette bar got me here, but Ken and his staff completely endeared me. Truly it is a House of Peace. Dave Cariveau

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
