We had a truly wonderful time here. The room was small, but well appointed and nicely decorated. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was a good size, easily enough room for two people to get ready at once. There’s also a shared kitchenette with some frozen meals and snacks that you can buy (you just put your name and... More

This place is a bit out of the way, but worth the drive, and actually pretty good because it puts you an hour from Kona or about an hour from Hilo, and was a great base to use to explore the northern half of the island. You're not too far from Waimea and Honokaa town so you also have some... More

Although a bit out-of-the way, this amazing B&B is well worth the drive. Gorgeous home, perfectly situated, with gracious guest rooms and spacious common areas. We were upgraded to a spacious master bedroom, beautifully furnished. We had a relaxing soak in the hot tub in the garden, followed by complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres. The innkeeper made a reservation for... More

We stayed two nights at this wonderful retreat. The grounds and house are beautifully designed, the colors and layout lend themselves to relaxation. We were welcomed with a friendly smile. From 5pm - 6pm, there are appetizers and wine. The night we arrived the appetizers were made by Kelly. They looked and tasted great! If you chose to also add... More

Others have said that Waianuhea is difficult to find. It is true but my Garmin took me right there. You will think you are lost so try to get there before sunset. Once there, you will see that it is a magnificent jewel of the Big Island. I only had two nights there with the house to myself one of... More

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
