A former single-family home, this magnificent B&B with views to match. It is on a hill overlooking the ocean, and cannot be beat if you are looking for quiet isolation. Its namesake is a very small hamlet with a few galleries and a single restaurant as good as any on the island. The staff is very helpful and responsive.

On our first trip to Hawaii we decided not to stay on the beach but in this excellent Inn. We were not disappointed. It is a fantastic Balinese style villa up in the foothills with the most wonderful views. It is like a tropical paradise. Our room was perfect and the wooden walls and floors were beautiful. It is so... More

Major pluses: great views from the grounds and an upper-story gazebo (the website pics are accurate), very stylish furniture and decor in the common rooms, interesting short trails around the grounds, very peaceful environment, nice pool and hot tub. Breakfasts were good but not as good as at a nearby B&B that was much less expensive. Concierge service was ok... More

From the moment we entered the property, we felt at paradise. The gardens are beautiful and extremely well kept. Paths to walk and discover all the different fruittrees, coffeetrees and lots of tropical flowers and plants. At the hotel, we were welcomed by an innkeeper and although we were early, we could leave our suitcases and were informed that our... More

It's a real pleasure for us to see our guests exploring and enjoying a walk through our land, following the path through our 100% estate Kona coffee trees to our orchard full of thriving fruit trees and our nursery with vegetable and herb beds, tropical flowers and amazing chickens.

We booked 2 nights at the Holualoa Inn as the first stop of our island-hopping honeymoon, and this inn absolutely blew us away. The website pictures don't really do it justice, and it's even more beautiful in person. The building is airy, well decorated, and quite spacious. Lots of nooks and sitting areas both inside and outside (including a covered... More

Well kept property with spacious rooms and beautiful views over Kona. The breakfast was delicious and the restaurant within walking distance to the inn was tasty as well. The inn would have benefitted from some air conditioning - the room was very stuffy in September and given the mosquitoes it wasn't really an option to leave the windows open. Additionally,... More

After 5 days at the very nice Four Seasons Houlalai - we left the seaside and drove 20 minutes, and 1500 feet up the hillside of Mauna Lea . This is coffee country - the increasingly reputable Kona Coffee district. Here you will find a true hidden gem. They call the Huloaloa Inn a B&B but that vastly underestimates this... More

We stayed at this B&B for 3 nights. Everything that we hoped for this place exceeded. We stayed in the Hibiscus room and the view was breathtaking. The breakfast was freshly made from their own produce, the ambience was very homely and relaxing. We used the hot tub located outside to watch the sunset, it was clean and inviting.

There is very little that could be done to improve this unusual and nearly perfect B&B. Located on the coffee-growing hillside above Kona and adjacent to the historic village of Holualoa that is now something of an artists' colony, this Inn is a place of beauty and serenity.
