We loved our first visit to the Aloha House one year ago. So in February 2015, we returned for 13 nights. It is our idea of perfect. The drive up the mountainside to this B&B is pure Hawaii adventure (passing avocado, citrus, banana, coffee and papaya trees, wild turkeys and pheasants) on a minimally paved road that ends at the...

We spent four nights at Aloha Guest House. We stayed in the Honu Room with kitchenette, opening out to the covered lanai for use by all guests, with a view to the coastline. Svetlana's sit-down breakfasts, including eggs and fruits grown on the property, are not to be missed! The road is a bit intimidating but we were able to... More

We stayed at Aloha Guest House for 3 nights mid January and loved it! Its so quiet and peaceful with an amazing view of the ocean and sunsets. Its up a mountain directly above the Place of Refuge and a great snorkeling beach. Amazing to sit on the lanai and listen to the birds and watch sunset over the ocean.... More

This is one of the best places I've stayed at so I'm reviewing it. If you are not a good driver, you might want a jeep to get up the driveway, but it's no problem in a mustang convertible provided you go one wheel at a time in a couple of obvious spots. Your reward after negotiating the driveway is... More

We had a great time staying at Aloha Guest House for 2 nights in February 2015. The house and rooms are well appointed, the hosts helpful and upbeat, and breakfast is just fantastic - plentiful, delicious and all organic. The only caution is the road is mostly 1 mile of bumpy, rutted track so if you don't have a high... More

If you are looking for a quiet getaway off the beaten path, away from the big box hotels, you have found your place. Beautiful views, awesome breakfast and conversation over Kona coffee in the morning. We loved our stay at the aloha guest house. Reading other reviews before arrival I was a little concerned about the road. We arrived at... More

The view from our room, the Kohola Room was unreal - waking up to that view every morning was something else, and the sunset was just beautiful. Lee and Svetlana are truly great hosts; they have really thought of every detail and it's obvious they really care about your stay. They are very open to sharing their beautiful home with... More

Great stay! We stayed in Fairmont Orchid later on but we prefer Aloha! Fantastic views and breakfast. Very fast internet so you can work while enjoying the ocean. Print instructions on how to get there or you'll have hard time to find it - no signs on the main road. Also be prepared for a steep ride up to the... More

Lee and Svetlana are superb hosts. -such charm, humor and generosity. My partner and I had a wonderful stay at their hidden property. Nestled high above the ocean the sweeping views of ocean and sunsets are inspiring. And touring the gardens is lovely; they have a charming ecosystem with their handsome chickens and beautiful "wild" birds, lots of exotic plants,... More
