My son recently had his reception at the Holualoa Inn. The grounds of the inn overlooking Kona Bay were spectacular and beautiful. It was a small, intimate place where about fifty guests could enjoy the scenery and have a leisurely dinner served by a caterer.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this exotic, spacious home. Yes, I rented the whole home for my family to use as their own. This turned out to be a wonderful staycation for us who are from Oahu. My granddaughters (age 9 and 14) thought they were in fantasy land. The place was all ours. The pool was all ours.... More

I can't think of a better gift for your family than a whole estate rental of Holualoa Inn. The Inn was originally built as a private residence so it is perfectly suited to bring everyone together, three generations of your beautiful family enjoying one another in the Great Room, Ohana Room and by the pool. So much mahalo for choosing... More

My husband and I stayed at this exceptional place for a week as an anniversary celebration. I fell in love with the inn on line and and it exceeded all expectations. The inn was busy with other guests that we would see at breakfast but most of the time we felt we had this elegant, inviting house all to ourselves.... More

Nothing makes us happier than seeing our guests enjoying all that Holualoa Inn has to offer. Whether lounging by the pool, catching the sunset from our rooftop gazebo, soaking up the ocean views while soaking in the hot tub, or grilling up a delicious piece of fresh fish poolside. Mahalo nui loa for choosing Holualoa Inn for your anniversary celebration,... More

Gorgeous property both inside and out with attention to the finer details from landscaping to bedding. We booked the Gardenia Suite and highly recommend it for the amazing views. We have stayed in 5 B&Bs on the big island and this one had one of the nicest interior and exterior with dramatic views and flora. It also seemed to be... More

From the moment we arrived until we left for the airport, my husband and I were enchanted with Holualoa Inn! We flew over to the Big Island for a 5 day getaway from our own rental business in Maui. When you drive up you are greeted with cool towels, a refreshing drink and a little tour of the grounds, common... More

Consider Holualoa Inn your Big Island home away from home and our staff your Big Island ohana! We hope you'll come home often. The coffee trees are in bloom today - we call it Kona snow.

We stayed at Holualoa for two nights at the end of a week trip on the big island. What a beautiful place, truly magical. The grounds were magnificent as well as our room, the Plumeria suite. The staff was amazing too. It's a bit pricey, but worth every cent. Will definitely stay again in the future.

We stayed at the inn the first week of February 2015 and it was the best visit to the island we have ever had (because of our stay at the inn).

We just had our 2nd stay at the Holualoa, and it was as wonderful an oasis as we remembered from our November 2013 visit. It's a great central place to stay for West Hawaii visitors who want a mix of adventure and relaxation -- close enough to the ocean, Kailua town, Mauna Loa and Kilauea for day trips and excursions,...
