Awesome place with an awesome vibe. A true gem hidden outside Hilo with a friendly and helpful staff. Plus, the breakfast served each morning really makes your day start right. Come here. You won't be disappointed...I wasn't.

The setting of the Inn at Kulani'apia Falls, is spectacular, as many have already noted, but kudos go to the owners and staff for their warmth and hospitality. They go above and beyond any staff that I have come in contact with.

had some idea that it would be by a waterfall, but did not expect the breathtaking view this place has and even the drive to it is like travelling back in time. This is for all folks who like to see a real natural hawaii. For us the drive to the inn from the city center was really nice so... More

This is a beautiful property. We stayed her for our last night because we didn't see any point in spending time in Hilo. It's a bit of a drive out but a nice drive once you leave the urban area. The property is beautiful. We hiked down and swam in the pond by the falls. The water was very cold... More

This was my wife and my first trip to The Big Island. We did not know where to stay. After reading lots of hotel reviews we decided on this one. We were so glad we selected this Inn. The owner, Lenny, and the staff were great. The rooms are nice and the food was amazing. We will definitely be back... More

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
