This is our second time staying at this lovely B & B and we can't speak highly enough of this wonderful place. We stayed in a larger room this time and our 3 days there could not have been more delightful. Wonderful staff, quiet location and a great breakfast. We will return here in the future for our vacation in... More

A fantastic location, wonderful gardens and views from the Inn. Clean tidy rooms and a breakfast which included cooked to order eggs and waffles. Helpful staff. Probably the nicest place we stayed in our tour of Big Island. Only downside are the bugs, which are only to be expected in a location such as this.

We stayed there just one night on our trip through Big Island. Despite the remote location of the Inn it was easy to find because of thoroughly positioned signs indicating the right way. The welcome was very friendly. The location is really awesome, straight by the side of the Kulaniapa Falls. The house and the rooms are very welcoming, everything... More

I was in Hilo on business, it is well worth the drive to the Inn. It was wonderful to feel removed from the everyday hustle when on a business trip. I went to work late the first day I was there because I wanted to walk through the Bamboo garden. It is beautiful, very well done. I came back early... More

We only stayed one night! Wish we could have stayed longer. We flew into Hilo and went to Ocean Sushi for a great dinner at a hole in the wall (they are moving in the next few months) place. Then drove in the dark up to the Inn. After locating our room, we settled n for the night, falling asleep... More

Following the inns kipper instruction it seems that it takes forever to get there but it's about 7 minutes drive from the city. The inn is beautiful. With great views of the fall. We went down for a swim and wondered through the bamboo trail. So tranquil and graceful. Breakfast is nice some fruits and an omelet don't expect more... More

Probably the most beautiful place we stayed at during our trip. From our room we could see the amazing waterfall. The sound of it is quite relaxing when going to bed and waking up to sunrise was amazing. You can see the ocean perfectly. The staff was very helpful with making suggestions on where to go or what to do.... More

The Aloha radiates from your arrival through your departure. This Bed and Breakfast is an honest Gem, The property is a botanical wonderland. The waterfall is mother nature at her finest.
