We stayed here on the last night of our week-long trip to the Big Island. I wanted to make sure that our last night was special and this Inn made it so. We arrived late at night, so getting there was a little challenging since we didn't see the sign, but thanks to Google Maps and a big glowing moon,... More

Without a doubt the most pleasurable stay we have ever had in Hawaii, bar none. Lenny's property is absolutely spectacular! You can go there on a vacation and never leave the property! We stayed in the Harmony House, Meile Suite, LISTENING TO THE FALLS AT NIGHT WAS so unbelievably relaxing... We will definitely return again. Having breakfast with guests in... More

We stayed at the Inn on our first two nights of our trip to Hawaii. Although it was not easy to find it on the first day (above all after 24 hours trip), the serene place we could enjoy the next morning when we got up was rewarding. The whole property is fantastic and the accommodation is perfect (clean, comfortable,... More

This is a picture post card place with a waterfall outside you room and a home made gourmet breakfast. We went as a family but it is more for couples, romantic and surreal. Close to town and so much to do on the premisses. Hike to a waterfall, walk through macadamia nut trees, bamboo garden, etc. It is really an... More

Our family spent two wonderful nights here. The grounds and the waterfalls are beautiful. We spent an entire morning just walking around, taking photos and talking to our kids about plants, flowers and waterfalls. It is a bit pricey, but worth it.

We sty just one night and it would be better stay more to enjoy the beauty of the location, the waterfall behind is impressive, but do not expect a luxury location, the rooms are small and the kitchen is not kept at the best, when you enter in you feel a smell of breakfast all the day long. Nevertheless I... More

The reviews were very carefully read before before we tried this place, and frankly, we cut down the number of nights planned due to apprehension based on the negative reviews. Having now stayed in the Pagoda, I can recommend it with confidence. Note that my review only covers the Pagoda... We didn't see the other buildings on the inside.  The... More

Family of 4 – stayed 4 nights in the Pagoda. Great location / surroundings – v excited on arrival but... No keys to doors and no Safe – had to carry passports etc everywhere when went out. Balance charged to credit card within 24 hours of arrival without our knowledge or permission – we had been planning to pay cash.... More

You can't beat the setting of this beautiful spot. Although it feels very remote, it is not too far from the main part of Hilo. We were surprised to be served a beautiful and delicious breakfast in the main house each day. The woman who does the cooking is delightful and very accommodating. We stayed in the Pagoda House which... More
