I stayed here in July with my mom and 2 sisters and we all agreed that this is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The drive to the B&B is up a bumpy, one-lane, two-way traffic road through the forest, which can either be daunting or exciting depending on your personality (we loved it). Be assured that... More

Waianuhea is difficult to find and out of the way, but the search is so worthwhile! We stayed one night after a day of exploring Waipio Valley. It was raining when we arrived, but Randy met us at the car with an umbrella to escort us inside. She immediately made us feel welcome -- we so appreciated her warmth and... More

This property is amazing and away from the noisy world, nestled into the hills above Honoka'a and in the shadow of Mauna Kea. The main house is colorful and magical and was nothing like we've ever seen before. Our family stayed in the private back house and we enjoyed the small heat-stove on the cool nights and the sky-lights above... More

We spent some of our honeymoon at your Inn and loved it. Between the Big Island and Oahu we stayed in 5 places, but Waianuhea was my favorite. It was for sure the best place I have ever stayed. Although not perfect, I would recommend you to anyone. The privacy was great for honeymooners like us. The breakfasts were amazing!... More

Waianuhea was such a beautiful place to stay. Although it is a little far from the main highway, it is pretty easy to get to. The grounds are breathtaking, the views are beautiful, and the rooms are plush and comfortable. Randy and all of the staff are so welcoming and accommodating! They even helped us plan some of our vacation... More

Tucked away in a beautifully secluded area on the north side of the big island, this B & B is truly a gem. The grounds are lush and well tended. The inside of the B & B is stunningly beautiful. The staff know how to make guests feel welcome; everyone was warm, generous, and gracious. The staff are also highly... More

Eco-friendly. Off grid. Solar. Rain catchment. Beautiful common areas. Lovely people. Hot tubs. Multiple levels, sitting rooms. They have four rooms and a separate cottage. The two less expensive rooms are nice but smaller. The two more expensive are lovely and bigger. It is secluded and once there, you don't want to leave. Arrange in advance to have dinner there....

It took us 1.5hours to find Waianuhea but it was worth it. It's located in a secluded area off Honakaa - you have to drive thro an unlit single lane road surrounded by woods (not for the faint hearted lol). But once you get there, it's beautiful. Large luscious grounds, with flora and fauna everywhere. Staff are great. Randy, Sonia... More

Very secluded on a huge piece of property on a hill with it's own lava tube! the B&B is way bigger than it seems from the outside. Big fireplace and couch in the sitting area, two hot tubs and an entirely different lower floor that opens up to a Koi pond. there is another section with floor to ceiling window... More

Where to begin?! This place is so wonderful and unique! It's about an hour drive from Hilo airport but it's worth it! The first night we were there we arrived around 7pm to find that there was a bottle of wine, pretzels, and a fire waiting for us. The room was comfy and welcoming. We enjoyed the jacuzzi outside where... More
