We went from Kona for 5 days to the east side of the Big Island to explore the volcano. The weather here is warm and sometimes cloudy but going to the rain forest/volcano environment is the big plus. Petra and her B&B is a serene and lovely experience with beautiful gardens and an amazing breakfast. She lent us snorkeling gear,... More

Staying at Hale Moana B and B was delightful –– comfortable and ideal for visiting the volcano and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach. Petra generously and mindfully provided information and maps for day trip options, also, a health food store and nearby beaches. Breakfast was always delicious and attention to dietary needs, always considered. The apartment I stayed in had a... More

Hale Moana is a wonderful spot from which to explore the Pahoa area and visit Volcano and Hilo. Our family stayed in the largest suite, which was very large, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Petra is a wonderful host who prepares delicious breakfasts and provides excellent information about local spots in the Pahoa area as well as in Volcano and... More

My daughter and I spent 2 nights at this lovely place. Comfortable, yummy breakfast, and our hostess was a wealth of helpful information. Choose an upstairs room to minimize noise but a downstairs room if you don't like carrying luggage up stairs. The tropical large yard is beautiful.

Excellent accommodation. Wonderful service, good food beautifully presented. Petra offered maps, suggested local restaurants. Beautiful rooms; beautiful people. I cannot say enough good things about our experience at Hale Moana.

My fiance and I had never been to a B&B before and decided this was a good opportunity. We were visiting to see a family member graduate from the local high school and it ended up that we were only a couple of blocks from my families house. We stayed in the suite as it was the only room available... More

My wife and I stayed at Hale Moana for three nights in April and just loved it. It's really one of the nicest B&Bs we've stayed in. It's in a peaceful area, far from any city lights, so there were some beautiful dark and starry skies, but it's not far from the surprisingly good restaurants in Pahoa, or from the... More

We were so delighted with our stay at the Hale Moana & Petra couldn't have been a nicer hostess. We will definitely return on our next visit to the Big Island & I will refer my Gadabout Vacations clients to her at every opportunity!

It is a bit out of the way but well worth a little bit of extra time in the car. Beautiful location, welcoming host, clean comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast every morning are some of the many things we enjoyed at Hale Moana. Petra was a wonderful resource. She provided a lot of information about the area and great... More
