This was the first time that I ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. I was not sure what to expect. My best friend had recommended the B&B. I enjoyed it. We got to eat breakfast every morning on the upstairs lanai. We were really surprised to see whales every morning. The breakfasts were delicious. It was neat to be... More

We booked a room at this B&B after researching this site and various guide books. Everyone had nice things to say about this little place, and boy, were they right! This place embodies the highest standards of friendliness and homeliness that make B&B's such an attractive alternative to resorts and mega-hotels. The place has four rooms, all overlooking Hilo Bay.... More

My wife and I were referred to the Hale Kai Hawaii Bed & Breakfast by friends who spent their honeymoon there in late 2004. We were there for 5 days in early February, 2007 and now we are recommending it to others. The location is just outside of Hilo and overlooks the Pacific Ocean (the view is amazing). It was... More

My wife and I just returned from our stay at the Hale Kai just outside of Hilo on the Big Island. We loved our time there. The owners were very kind and helpful, giving us directions any time we asked, giving us tips about things to see and do, and other things that were very helpful to us on our... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 5th anniversary with a trip to the Big Island. For the Hilo portion of our stay, I took a co-worker's recommendation of the Hale Kai B&B. It was a great choice. Ric & Maria are the hosts and they're welcoming, knowledgeable, funny, unobtrusive and genuinely caring about their guests' well-being. They gave thoughtful... More

My wife and I stayed in 5 B&Bs on the Big Island, and this was the best. Mostly, this is due to the fact that you are right on the ocean and have a great panoramic view from your bed. The rooms were very clean and sparsely decorated. The decor was not top notch, but the ocean sounds and view... More

It's been three years that I've wanted to commend Rick and Maria on having one of our favorite places in the WORLD to travel to. Until Hawaii, my wife and I traveled to different places every year for our vacations. After we hit Hawaii....there was just no reason NOT to go back. Hale Kai is an amazing B & B... More

Wonderful location, overlooking the bay from the deck. Very freindly hosts, and perfect breakfast spot on the deck. See you next time! Steve & Charlotte Lewis.

Coming from Germany, we stayed there for four nights in August 2006 and found a wonderful place with very friendly hosts. Starting a day with a delicious breakfast at such a spectacular view couldn´t be better. Maria and Ric arranged everything very lovely and it tasted great. We join the opinion of the other reviewers about the pancakes, although we... More
