You amble down a winding driveway through the beautiful gardens and end up at a gazebo beside an infinity pool hanging over an incredible view of Kona. The view on the way down and from the bottom is spectacular. This is an extremely well cared for property and sitting having the coffee samples in the gazebo overlooking Kona at the... More

The views are beautiful from the top down but once you reach the pool you will gasp in awe. The walk down through the gardens was delightful. They have various local botanical specimens. I was thankful for the signage which helped to identify plants and trees I had never seen before. Be prepared to take a stroll down. It may... More

I was really impressed with the plants. Many beautiful sites. Winding path down to an endless pool. Neat to see chickens and turkeys roaming amongst the foliage. Coffee sample at the end of the trail in a covered seated area. Can ride back up to the parking area or walk back up.

We stumbled upon this by accident while out driving around Holualoa. We weren't sure what it was since the guidebooks don't mention it. But there were signs that said open to the public so we walked down into the most beautiful gardens with beautiful views of the ocean. It is amazing and free too! At the end of a rather... More

My wife and I live full time in Kona and take a short drive up the hill to Mauka Meadows every couple of months for a "stroll in the private park". Its basically a long, narrow arboretum where you park at the top and walk down a private lane/paths to a pavilion 1/2 the way down with a shallow but... More

We were driving along Kona's famous Historical Highway looking for coffee tours using the usual guidebooks. Surprisingly, Mauka Meadows does not appear in many, if any of these tourist publications. We happened upon it by chance on an overcast day with very few other tourists around. The parking lot is at the top of a huge sloping hill that marks... More

Well maintained gardens with a lovely walk through beautiful flowers and fruit trees that ends at the most gorgeous infinity pool and view of the Kona coastline. Yummy coffee served on a covered lanai. Truly one of the most beautiful spots on the island.

After talking to a friend in Kona, I checked out the reviews for Mauka Meadows. All the reviews were positive. My husband & I have driven by this "hidden gem" many times but never stopped. This time we did & were not disappointed. The walk is nice & the trees & flowers are beautiful. It was a little drizzly when... More

The grounds are absolutely gorgeous..it is amazing that this is free and what is more they encouraged us to pick some of the fruits and nuts on our stroll. The pineapple was best I've ever tasted! They even had long poles and nutcrackers to get the macadamia nuts. Had lemons, limes, tangerines...all fantastic. Our 12 yr old loved it and... More
