They definitely thought of everything! The breakfasts were absolutely amazing. Fresh fruit every morning and they offered great advice for activities. The room was clean and there were all the same amenities as a hotel and then some.

This was the only B&B we stayed at during our one month vacation – our other accommodations were mostly room and cottage rentals – and the professionalism of our hosts was clear and much appreciated.

Our only complaint is that our stay was far too short ... only two days. Could happily have stayed here far longer. Kirby and Toby were wonderful hosts at this amazing and truly beautiful B&B stuck away on the north shore. Rooms (ours was Mango Room) are large, exceptionally comfortable and well outfitted. Breakfasts (sadly we only had two) were... More

We stayed at the Hale Ho'o Maha B&B for the first week of March 2015 and had the most wonderful relaxing stay there. The breakfasts were delicious and ample with plenty of fresh fruit (papayas picked in the back yard each day), our room was spacious, quiet, and beautiful (with fresh flowers through the week), the hosts, Kirby and Toby,...

This lovely B&B and its friendly, super-laid-back hosts was a perfect location from which to explore the North Shore of Kauai. We especially enjoyed the offered freedom to invade the kitchen to boil a pot of tea at any time of day or night, and the fun (and challenge!) of choosing our teas from an overwhelming selection of 50+ different...

We loved our stay!! Kirby and Toby met us upon arrival and immediately welcomed us to their home by showing us around the property. They were very gracious to let us use the kitchen when we wanted, and even had great amenities we weren't expecting (hot tub, snorkel and beach gear).

Toby and Kirby have designed and built the most incredible B&B - probably the most unique space we've stayed at. They are seasoned hosts - and it really does show. Everything has been so well considered and we really didn't want for anything - there was even an elevator to carry your bags up to the upper floor. Our room... More
